A gala mixer for the entire mem bership of the Bluffton Community Sportsmen’s Club will be held at the town hall club rooms Wednesday night of next week. Highlighting the evening of enter tainment will be a motion picture program given by Albert Dixon Sim mons, noted outdoorsman and pho tography editor for OUTDOORS magazine. Simmons appeared here several years ago to a capacity crowd and his program was considered one of the best ever held in the area. His program for this meeting will in clude color motion pictures on Crow Hunting (in which the speaker, Bert Popowski and son bagged 527 crows), WHO The TRANSPLANT Is Your Furnace Ready for Cold Weather?

Throughout the showing of the pictures Simmons will narrate the experiences and thrills experienced during the hunt. Simmons recently completed a two weeks movie program shooting pic tures of a ruffed grouse hunt in northern New Hampshire. He will make the trip to Bluffton from Bos ton, Mass., with a stop off at Cleve land. A pot luck supper at 6:45 p. m., with the club serving 52 Mallard Ducks, will start off the evening’s activity. The ducks, reared under the careful supervision of Edgar Root at Many people have a confused impression about bank ownership. Who could own the banks, they reason, but people of great wealth? Surely bank ownei^hip must be con centrated in the hands of a comparatively few capi talists 1 Yet such an assumption is far removed from the ac tual facts. In Ohio—and throughout the United States—it is the people themselves wno own the bank ing system. I In Ohio alone there are more than 64,000 bank stockholders. The situation is similariin other states. The Citizens National Bank has 100 stockholders. The reason for this popular ownership, whi contrast with other countries, is not^ hard to find. Here in the United States we have a organized and functioning on the mYoad basis of rendering service to the many instead if the few.

Protest Protector Dismissal In the interest of better conser vation for Ohio, this column seeks additional information on the recent dismissal of 5 game protectors throughout the area. Positions abolished included that of Robert Winchell of Wapakoneta. Bob had been doing a fine piece of work in the Bluffton area and it is with re gret we learn of his dismissal. The five men wrere dropped from the state payrolls for the alleged reason of economy. All five of these men were of civil service standing and had served from 7 to 10 years as game management sportsmen of the situation, ceived letters stating their of the close of business Oct. 14, 1947. For men who have worked so many years in the game department as these, at least they should have had a two weeks notice. The reason for dismissal was for “economy” pur poses. Game populations are at the low est ebb in many, many years. We need MORE TRAINED MEN, NOT LESS TRAINED MEN, to help in the big program of bringing game populations back to satisfactory numbers. More monies are available than ever before for such purposes. In view of all this, we wonder about the “So called savings program” the conservation commissioner mind. It smells like THE BLUFFTON NEWS, BLUFFTON, OHIO agents. The Ohio should be told of All five of the men re dated October 13, 194? jobs were abolished as These men were under the Pitt man-Robertson program. An approved P-R program by the Federal Govern ment called for the employment of twelve men. Yet only seven jobs were assigned. It becomes apparent the five men whose positions were abolished could have been given the five positions still open. Under the P-R arrangement the Federal government paid three fourths of the salaries and expenses of these men. As TO? has in politics again, column person county should to work along The writer of this ally feels' that each have a trained man with the game protector to keep a thriving program of conservation go ing. There is too much to be done and too little help to do the big job ahead of us. The men in the employee of the conservation department are deserving of additional salary. These men are job. But to guide clubs to sound conservation. that if additional funds are needed to finance an expansion of the de partment, the sportsmen will do their share and would not protest an increase in license fees. Let’s keep the conservation division filled with trained personnel and weed out the politicians, instead of firing civil service skilled and doing a fine even more a multitude carry out help is needed of sportsmen’s a program of We feel sure men who have fine records.
