Bluffton, Ohio Phono 381-W I makes life livable in a small town— this isn’t all the spice, to be sure— there’s some that for obvious reas ons can’t appear in this column which you may hear from time to time—as we’ve noted before in this column there isn’t much to see in a small town—but what you hear makes up for it. Speaking of things you hear— Bluffton’s Baby Derby paid off on the old wives’ tale that “babies al ways get born right after the full moon”—and there was a full moon last week. What is probably more remarkable is the fact that for more than a week there had been no births at the hospital where the nursery usually is one of the liveliest spots. With three girl babies close contend ers for the prize money there still remains the consolation awards for the first boy baby and the first pair of twins. Our Chevy which never fails to start, fair weather or foul, was sty mied Saturday morning on an ice covered pavement. The wheels spun around but we weren’t going any where until a passing stranger—Good Samaritan that he was—stopped and brought over a little sack of rock salt which he sprinkled in front of the back wheels. That’s all it need ed—he said he kept the salt in his car for just such emergencies—so we’re passing the good news along to you just in case. And when it comes to good Sa maritans—the Legion’s “TOT” Tide of Toys got a -big response here. Bluffton really opened its heart for this one and toys poured in for children overseas where such things are priceless treasures. More pro jects such as this might mean less atomic bomb projects.

Any old port in a storm—that’s what a bedraggled blue pigeon thought during a heavy rain squall Tuesday morning when it found shelter in the Church street entrance to the Rice dry goods store. The bird, quite tame, was as much in terested in onlookers as they were in the feathered visitor.) After preening its feathers it departed when the storm had subsided. Death claimed John “Jock” Mc Farland, the Wandering Scottish globe trotter whose trek through Bluffton was recorded in this column several years ago. He died in To ledo, Saturday and was buried there in a cemetery plot bought by friends. McFarland, 56, who called him self the world’s champion hiker at tracted attention wherever he went with his Scottish costume and thick native brogue. He claimed to have been walking for 29 years and cov ered some 665,000 miles including visits to Australia, Dutch East In dies, Alaska and Canada, He came ill in Toledo a month ago while enroute to Edinburgh, Scotland, to end his wandering days where he had begun them in 1921. If you’re old enough to remem ber back thirty-two years, you may recall that this Thursday will be the thirty-second anniversary of Bluffton’s worst blizzard. It was on Saturday, January 12, 1918 when a roaring storm struck almost with out warning before daybreak as the mercury plummeted 42 degrees in 10 hours to a low of 12 degrees be low zero. A howling 40-mile an hour gale added to the general dis comfort and completely disrupted travel. Bluffton’s usual brisk Saturday trade dropped to nothing. Stores in the business district shut up shop at dusk and it was an adventurous sould indeed -who ventured out after dark. The blizzard, however, was of comparatively short duration as the next day, Sunday, dawned bright and clear. The wind died down and the entire community manned snow shovels to clear the sidewalks and dig out of the big drifts wliile snow plowrs went to work opening the main highways.
