THE BLUFFTON NEWS, BLUFFTON, lOHIO spring—when a young man’s fancy turn to a new convertible roadster and fishing tackle is overhauled —and lawnmowers, too and housecleaning—freshing up a bit with a can of paint and early gardening and auto repair shops busy bumping out winter's fender dents Easter shopping season getting up steam—not forgetting Easter hats, as impossible as ever and remember that you’ll be walking Saturday morning unless you get a new tag for the chewy— better do it now. This column celebrates this week its ninth birthday—we’re well past the stage of swaddling clothes and getting ready to blossom out With the juniors and subdebs fact is we’re beginning to feel quite grown up—however, we’ll never become too old to retain the viewpoint of youth. And so, with best wishes to all who may peruse these notes, we start an other year of recording some of the bits of sunshine and shadow which go to make up the daily life of Bluffton. The woman always pays—at least that is what Bluffton college coeds will be doing over the week end. It’s Leap Week—the annual open season for man hunting—when the girl may with perfect propriety ask her heart throb for a date—and she also, with perfect propriety pays the bill for the picture show and the coke afterward. We should have been a collector of antiques—anyway we always have had a flair for them—and that in cludes an interesting collection of old papers among effects of the late Wes ley Vermillion of Orange township, found by his brother Albert. Among them were notes over one hundred years old, given for money borrowed by Newton Elzay, pioneer Orange township settler and grand father of the Vermillions and also the late Newton Elzay, a namesake. One dated March 25, 1846 was for $75 and another for $3.81, with pay ments credited on the back of the note. One payment was made with two bushels of potatoes. Another note for $9 was given for the purchase of a fanning mill from L. Carpenter & Co., of Gilboa, with two years in which to pay. Elzay cleared the farm, known as the Elzay homestead and now occu pied by his great-great-grandson, Russell Elzay. Ernie Godfrey, Ohio State univers ity football coach speaking at the Beaverdam Lions club last Thursday night brought back recollections of i good many years ago when we were doing cub reporting on the lantern, Ohio State’s student news paper and Ernie was an undergrad uate having a tough time getting thru a Spanish course which he didn’t like—and having a whale of a good time learning the fine points of football. Ernie wasn’t much interested in anything outside of football—and he stuck to it—and now is listed as one of the best line coaches in the Big Ten ------s The fatt that Ernie wasn’t one of the varsity first-stringers didn’t daunt him in the slightest—he loved football for football's sake and not for plaudits from the cheering bleachers. Some of the things he told the Beaverdam Lions last Thursday night were characteristic of the man: “You can’t measure a season by the wins and losses boys who play for the fun and love of it get the most out of it.” Used Equipment TRACTORS 1-BN with Cultivators l-F-14 with Cultivators l-F-12 with Cultivators Ay 1-Oliver 60 with Cultivalbrs 1-10-20 on Rubber 1-International 9A 7ft.

Niswander International Harvester Dealer Bluffton, Ohio Ernie wasn’t a scholar—but he was a square shooter, played the game hard, and withal a gentleman. He was always a good influence in athletics and intercollegiate sports will be the better for having known Ernie Godfrey. Homemade pies Stoney’s Restaurant Rawson. Ohio W Speaking of sports, Bluffton caught some of the wild enthusiasm gener ated throughout Putnam county by the spectacular record of the Miller City midgets in copping the state class basketball championship in the finals at Columbus, Saturday afternoon. What amazed veteran sport ob servers was the cool and methodical way in which the boys from the tiny crossroads town played the game. Without individual stars, they gave a rare exhibition of perfect team work and smashed the hoary tradi tion that only the tall fellows can get anywhere on a basketball floor. Not until the closing seconds of the finals did the Miller City lads change their poker-faced attitude and break into broad victory grins when it was evident that the championship was safely in the bag. Bluffton rodeo followers talking about another exhibition in Bluffton this summer invariably get onto the subject of Lynn Wilkins, Findlay 11-year-old, the youngest contestant and winner at rodeos here in past years. Lynn and his pony Royal Chief are well-nigh inseparable compan ions. Since his first horse show in Urbana when he was six years old and won first, place, he has been first 23 times, second 13 times, third 15 times, fourth 10 times and fth, six times. His collection of ribbons and trophies is one of the largest in this section. Lynn, however, is busy these days —not with his horse or riding the range at rodeos—it’s something more prosaic than that—as the 5th grade pupil in the Findlay schools he’s having his biggest troubles with arithmetic—fractions in particular. News of the death of Frank Buck, big wild game hunter, which occur red at a hospital in Houston, Texas, Saturday, had a personal angle of regret for Charles Trippiehorn, son of the Murray Trippiehorns, now a student in the Ohio State university graduate school and an authority on reptilia. As a youngster Tripple hom became acquainted with Buck through their common interests and was given encouragement to pursue his work in his chosen field. That big elm tree in the Presby terian church yard is at least 150 years old, according to Sidney Mc Neal, head of a crew which has been busy trimming trees in the church yard the past week. Just how old the tree may be is a matter of con jecture, however, this opinion con firms a recollection of the late Joe Mumma, born in Bluffton in 1844. Mumma, who could recall seeing Indians in this vicinity when he was a child said that so far as he could remember the elm was always a large tree and had not changed per ceptabTriTrsize. In addition to trimming the tree, the lawn has been refertilized and reseeded and in order/to protect the re-seeded areas, there will be no ice cream socials or similar events hHd there for the next two years. Britain’s war with France in 1695 was partly paid for by a tax on bachelors. Better Feed at Stoney's Thursday—CHOP/ SUEY Friday—FISH & /CHIPS Sunday—CHICKEN, STEAK, HAM vwyii-iN yfyfa. n J.
