P. C. Luginbuhl, Richland town ship native, back from a summer trip to Europe. He came down from his home in Lakewood, a Cleveland suburb to visit his brother Sam south of town and other relatives and friends over the week end. His hobby is photography and incidental ly he brought with him some very fine pictures of scenic spots which he visited. A sobering thot however, is the prevalent impression through out Europe that another war is im minent. Significant of this tension is the fact that work of restoring pictures and other obpects of art removed from galleries during the last war for safe keeping, has been stopped in France and England, he said. Don’t incur the wrath of a woman —and that’s what has happened in Bluffton. Women who have swept fly ash off their porches and window sills until patience ceases to be a virtue are signing petitions to the town council for action to require •industrial plants here to eliminate the smoke and fly ash nuisance. Just in case you’re interested to know how much fly ash accumulates over night, there’s a plate of it ex hibited in the New window. This was swept from a South Main street porch Tuesday morning at 11 o’clock after the porch had been swept clean Monday afternoon at 5 o’clock. THE BLUFFTON NEWS. BLUFFTON. OHIO OF TH* Overheard the other day A stranger dropped into the shoe re pair shop of “Doc” (Elmer) Lud wig with the inquiry “Do you have a brother whose name is Elmer?” “No I haven’t,” came the reply from Doc, unpreturbed as ever, “but my brother Frank has.” This huge tomato crop has swelled the treasuries of a number of churches in the Pandora area. Ans wering the emergency call of the canneries for help, a number of women responded and contributed their earnings to their respective churches. Carl Gable, Bluffton painter is having more than his share of ex periences with wild animals—yes, we said wild. Several weeks ago he was stung by some angry wasps whose domain he had invaded while paint ing a house. Monday morning the tables were turned and Carl found a skunk had invaded his premises on South Jackson street. The skunk seemed in no hurry to leave and Carl, while he would have been happy to have the visitor move else where, wasn’t employing any drastic measures. With polio at the epidemic stage in nearby areas, Bluffton’s record of only one case within the corpora tion limits is particularly outstand ing. Why this is. no one can defi nitely say because as yet science has not learned how the disease is spread. However, the opinion has been expressed here that possibly spraying of Big and Little Riley creeks may have been a factor in the town’s apparent immunity. Reports from health authorities that polio virus has been found in sewage would point to the possibility that flies and mosquitoes may have something to do with the spread of the disease. On this theory, a num We see only wires! But at this very moment a woman in San Francisco may be speaking to her husband in Shanghai ... a boy at Princeton may be inviting a girl in Albuquerque to a football game and Mrs. Green of R. D. No. 1 may be placing her order with Mr. Brown of the Crossroads Store. Here—where sixty wires cling to the cross-arms of a weathered pole—the ends of the earth meet! It’s like that irr our local churches on Communion Sunday. Whether fifty or five hundred receive the Holy Sacrament the ends of the earth meet. For the Lord’s Supper is not a rite of one church or one denomination. It is the common sacramental feast of millions of Christians all over the world. Are you availing yourself of this blessed privilege, and are you attending your church regularly? As you receive this Sacrament in your church, your life is linked to the lives of Christians every where. And you and they are united in a common communion with God! ber of Northwestern Ohio municipal ities have resorted to aerial DDT spraying. Bluffton which has sprayed creeks here every summer for a number of years has been unusually free of flies and mosquitoes this summer. Work was in charge of W. A. Howe, former mayor, and the town may well attribute its immunity to the polio scourge as an unexpected ben efit from the spraying program. Streams here were treated regularly with an oil spray with DDT added. Don’t crowd, girls—the line forms on the right, and here’s your op portunity for romance with plenty of glamor. But to get back to the be ginning of our story—town clerk Chas. Emans found in his mail the other day a letter from two British airmen seeking to correspond with two girls here. They said they se lected Bluffton as a typically Amer ican town. Now Charlie Emans isn’t going to play any favorites in this inter national game of hearts so he asked this column to broadcast the good news which gives a fair field to all and special advantage to none. The airmen describe themselves as just out of college and now serving in the Royal Air Force. They are: 4031015 AC. K. Amos and 4030939 AC. W. Anderson. Address of each is: Hut X25, A squadron 2 Wing, 2 Radio School, R. A. F. Station, Yatesbury, N. Caine, Wiltshire, England. So there is is girls—from now on it’s up to you—and may the best gals win.
