THE BLUFFTON NEWS. 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
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
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.
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
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
