BLUFFTON. OHIO Mid-May-i-with Bluffton’s city-wide clean-up campaign putting the ac cent on the usual spring cleaning season—and it looks as if by the time the windup of the drive comes Thursday night the old town will have had a pretty good face-lifting and it’s a time of formals for sweet girl graduates and youths looking for summer jobs base ball for sport fans and busy days at Maple Grove cemetery an ticipating Memorial day fisher men at the Buckeye casting for those pickerel stocked there last week and this is the week of the Three Bad Boys, so says the old Swiss German tradition—May 12 to 14—when the weather is sup posed to do all kinds of queer antics —in fact it did when last week's mid-summer heat of 93 degrees dropped to the fifties Tuesday morn ing come to think about it, this is the week when grandpappy used to plant his corn—never knew any better, benighted soul, until some of the smart boys with book learnin’ figured it out that he planted two weeks too early—that’s what they thought—but somehow it didn’t work and they had their fingers burned a couple of times by early frosts (if frosts can burn) so now the trend is swinging back again toward earl ier planting and here comes Friday the 13th—of all things—so keep your fingers crossed—anyway this is the last time for this year— it doesn’t happen again until next January. You’ve heard of the mail man who took a long walk on his day off— well that’s what Wilbur Potee, city carried, did Sunday, and came back with the news that prospects for pheasant hunting next fall are good. Wilbur and his two granddaughters Karen and Darlene in a cross coun try tramp out near Ray Marshall’s in Orange township discovered a hen pheasant sitting on a nest contain ing 16 eggs—an unusually large number, say sportsmen. And speaking of birds—Mrs. Rus sell Lantz found one roosting in her living room the other morning. She was surprised—and so was the bird —and it wasn’t a small one either— she thought it was a big crow until her husband identified it as a mal lard hen just as the duck flew across the room and crashed headlong thru a window. Dazed by the crash but apparently unharmed by shattered glass the bird rested momentarily on the window ledge and then took off across nearby Riley creek for the wooded college campus. The duck is believed to have gained entrance by coming down the chimney into the fireplace. Several have been seen in the vicinity recently and some be lieve they may be of the flock of domesticated mallards which have made their home at the waterworks quarry. To get a wedding present it’s sometimes necessary to go after it— that’s what the Maurice Fetts did when they stopped on their honey moon to visit the Don Davises in Miami, Florida, this week. The Davises had a wedding gift for the Bluffton couple on condition that they call for it in person. Son of Mrs. A. H. Davis and the late Mr. Davis, former Blufftonites, Don and his wife entertained Maurice fre quently while the latter was in Mi ami between flights for the army air service during the war. A Bluffton idea has been trans planted to Alameda, California, where the First Presbyterian church has embarked on a talent program aiming to raise $20,000 for a new organ and other improvements. Mrs. Erf w I & $ HoW Sherwood Diller, formerly of Bluff ton is serving as co-chairman of the general committee in charge. The sum of $700 in five-dollar bills has been given to individuals who will use it to further a particular talent that can be turned into a profit. Congregation members will have un til next fall to complete their pro jects. The plan was first put into practice by the Presbyterian church here two years ago. More and more industry is moving out of the metropolitan areas into towns of northern New England and New York states, writes Joy K. Huber, former Blufftonite, who has been for a number of years connect ed with an airplane manufacturing concern for which he travels widely. The trend toward decentralization which began before the war has since received additional impetus be cause of the radical, foreign labor element together with fear of future atomic warfare, he says. Memorial day this year will have added significance to many area families as records show that ap proximately 60 bodies of Allen coun ty World War II servicemen killed overseas have been returned to this country for reburial since the re patriation program opened late in 1947. The county lost 214 military personnel during the war, but not all were killed overseas. Ever see a radio station going down the road? well there was one in Bluffton last week. The owner, Ogden Etchison, a traveling salesman was an amateur radio en thusiast with a two-way radio at his home in Alexandria, Indiana, and in his Chrysler New Yorker car. Just in event you’re sufficiently up on radio to appreciate technical de tails, his car is equipped with a Motorola mobile transceiver that operates on 10 meter frequency and uses about 16 amps for transmission from the car’s battery, with a “B” license and call letters W9GLG. LTnlike the state patrol’s police radio telephone used in taxicab sys tems, Etchison has a two-way con tact all over the world. Because of technical difficulty, he is occasion ally unable to call directly to his Indiana home, so he calls a friend in Guatemala, Central America—no less—and has the message relayed by radio to Mrs. Etchison. His wife has no radio license, so she cannot call her husband—who under this arrangement has the first word, if not always the last. That Dallas, Texas, station which has had all the local television fans agog for the past week or two put on another demonstration Sunday night. Howard Stauffer reported a telecast of about a half-hour dur ation—about half the length of the first program received here. Just how it happens, no one seems to be able to figure out, since under nor mal conditions television reception is rated as practical to points within a 100 mile radius of the transmitter. Dallas is approximately 1,300 miles from Bluffton.
