Topsy-turvy weather continued to
add to the oddities of the winter, and
spoiled the Easter fashion parade
last Sunday one of the season’s
heaviest snowfalls gave a Christmas
like setting to the town and instead
of verdant grass and budding trees
there was a four-inch blanket of
snow signs of the times also
included snow men and snow forts
in yards as children took their last
fling at winter sports and a
large snow rabbit in the Harry Bo
gart yard carried out the Easter
theme in a midwinter setting
Then one day later the mercury had
climbed 47 degrees from Easter Sun
day’s low in the twenties, and it be
gan to feel like spring for the first
time in more than a month.
Dan Alspach, Bluffton dry cleaner,
reminiscing this week about the
times when he used to travel on the
Chautauqua circuit with the Hon.
Alben Barkley, now vice-president of
the United States. It was back in
1926 when Alspach was one of the
members of a theatrical troupe pre
senting the stage play, “Freckles,”
on a Chautauqua circuit through
Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas.
Barkley, then a Congressman from
Kentucky, was debating on the same
circuit with another representative,
Congressman Tincher. The two at
tractions appeared on the Chau
tauqua programs on succeeding
nights and they often ran into each
other on the circuit, and sometimes
spent as much as a day together in
the same town.
Alspach recalls the congressman
who was later to become vice-presi
dent as a friendly acquaintance, well
liked by everyone.
Fishermen, getting everything in
readiness for the spring season, will
get one break this summer through
a change in the Ohio law. Since
March 1, it no longer is necessary
to display the fishing license in a
holder attached to the hat or coat.
Licenses still must be carried, but
most of them from now on will be
in pockets or the tackle box.
Incidentally, Riley creek which
runs through Bluffton, is one of
Ohio’s restriction-free streams this
year in a venture of the state con
servation department to study the
effects of not having closed seasons
on fishing. None of the Ohio closed
seasons or other restrictions will ap
ply on fish taken from the Riley
during the year, so local bass fish
ermen can continue their sport un
abated when bass breeding season
rolls around.
With word received here last
week of the death of Frank Fenton,
Clearmont, Mo., Charles Fenton, of
Lawn avenue, who will be 77 years
old in May, now is the last survivor
of the children and grandchildren in
his grandfather’s family.
Frank, a native of Bluffton, who
had lived in Missouri for many
years, died in Clearmont Feb. 20,
at the age of 79.

THE BLUFFTON NEWS, BLUFFTON, OHIO
being erected by the Carey Niswan
der farm implement and home ap
pliance store, marked the passing of
another of Bluffton’s old business
landmarks.
Thirty-five years ago Hawk’s City
Laundry, recalled now by only the
old-timers, operated in the barn.
Tobacco habits change, just as
everything else. A tour of down
town tobacco shops leads to the dis
covery that less chewing tobacco is
being sold nowadays than in by
gone years.
This is believed largely due to a
successful campaign among wives
which has made the old parlor ga
boon practically a museum piece.
Snuff, surprisingly enough, con
tinues to command a fair sale, local
stores report. Although sales never
have been large, the demand appar
ently varies little from year to year.

Do cows have a discriminating
taste when it comes to music? We
don’t know for sure but the story is
going the rounds about a dairyman
in the Bluffton area who has gone
into the milk business in a big way,
with all the latest gadgets, including
a radio, to bring soothing music
during milking time, which he in
sists increases milk production.
Everything went fine until the other
night when the radio wouldn’t work,
so our resourceful dairyman tried
the next best thing—doing the sing
ing himself. He apparently is better
at dairying than singing because he
said the trial was a complete flop—
at least from the milk production
standpoint. The radio—and cows—
both are back on the job this week.
And here comes the census—it’s a
good thing to count noses and Uncle
Sam wants to know just how many
of us there are—and like every other
good thing, be sure ^ou insist on the
genuine. What we mean is, that
when someone stops at your home
and announces himself (or herself)
as the census taker you have a right
to know if it’s the real McCoy.
You will know him by the big red,
white and blue folder he carries.
Ask to see his identification card
if he doesn’t have it, don’t let him
in. Beware of anyone who tries to
sell anything while taking the cen
sus. It’s against regulations—he
may be a phony.
The census taker who follows his
instructions will not call at meal
time—he won’t smoke or chew gum—
neither will he interview you in
front of friends or fellow workers.
What you tell him is confidential
he takes an oath of secrecy. Be cor-
