CIVIC MEETING There was in existencein Perrys burg a little over fifty years ago a musical organization par excel lence. There was a similar organi zation in nearly every town in this vicinity where was to be found a considerable number of Germans. The- village "of Perrysburg and Perrysburg township had in its population at that time a very large proportion of those born in the fatherland and had come to .this country with the object of mak ing this their future home. It has been asserted many and many a time and never controverted that as a music-loving people there is no other nation on the face of the en tire globe that will compare with the people of Germany, and that they cling to this inborn love of music, both vocal and instrumental, whether they remain in their na tive land or emigrate to foreign -shores is also a well known fact. The Perrysburg Saengerbund was originally organized as a sing ing society for male voices only early in the winter of 1867 by John Bader, who was at that 'time one of the best known and most prominent and popular Germans in this vicin ity. He was the proprietor of a large grocery and restaurant locat ed on the northwest corner of Lou isiana avenue and Third street, and was also interested in several other enterprises which flourished in the town at that time. This singing society at first had weekly rehears als in a hall over Bader's store. The first musical director was a prominent vocal instructor, a Mr. Henzel, of Toletfo The rehearsals were always well ''tended, and while the society at firi, i id a small membership, interest ana enthusi asm in it grew rapidly, as id also the list of member ip until at its zenith there weie en1 Jed on its. roster a very large majority of liiusc ul our citizens who jiuu uuun born in the fatherland and their immediate descendants. As above stated, as a musical organization it was excellent. While all of the members were not trained singers that is, they had not had that voice culture that would enable them to sing in grand opera or the like, still under the skillful guid ance of the musical director and by constant attendance at their weekly rehearsals and their perseverance and inborn love of music soon brought them up to a high state of proficiency. What some of them lacked in the finer points of voice culture they made up in volume, for the Saengerbund surely did con tain some strong and robust voices. All of the books and papers of the organization containing the records of the meetings, list" of membership, etc., were destroyed many years ago. The writer has never seen a roster of members, but it is safe to assume that in the list of names which here follow, the great majority of them were at one time or another enrolled as mem bers of the Saengerbund during the several years of its existence: .(Reports indicate that much seed wheat is not germinating satisfac torily this season. Some samples of wheat arc but 18 to 20 per cent viable. While a general germina tion test is not suggested by W. E. Hanger, crops specialist of the Ohio State University, College of Agri culture, he recommends that seed wheat should weigh 56 pounds or over to the bushel, and that light chaffy wheat of any variety should be avoided. FORT MEI6S CELEBRATION There will be a regular meeting of the Perrysburg Civic Association at the Civic Rooms on the evening of Thursday, September 11, at 8 o'clock. FREDERICK C. AVER1LL ATTORNEY AND COUNSELOR-AT-LAW 818 Spitsw BalUia, TOLEDO, OlIO. RETURNS FROM CONFERENCE Rev. W. H. Spybey attended the Methodist Conference at Findlay, Ohio, last week. He has returned home and announces he has been reappointed pastor of the Metho dist Episcopal Church here. Rev. J. C. Shaw has been assigned to Maumee and Rev. W. N. Constein has been assigned to Weston, Wood country. Both were for mer pastors of the Perrysburg M. m. (Jnurch. Ditching Machines Make Profit For Farmers. .That community ditching ma chines may be profitably employed throughout the greater portion of the year is the opinion of specialists in the department of soils, at the Ohio State University. Heretofore, farmers have been putting in tile drains during the spring and late fall months, being limited by weather and labor condi tions, while with the machine it is possible to put in a larger amount in a small time. It has been found by soil special ists that the blue or mottled sub soils so frequently found in wet areas soon change to a, brown or yellow soil after the ground is prop erly tiled. As the crop root sys tems become established and more humus is incorporated with the soil and subsoil, the soil soon loses its original character and becomes loose and friable, similar to the highest-priced Ohio lands. Tests in comparing yields of crops on drained and undrained land at the Clermont County Ex periment Farm show a gain of 18 bushels of corn, 7 bushels of wheat and 700 pounds of clover to the acre m favor of the drained land. This increase alone would make it profitable for farmers to buy com munity ditching machines and do tiling on.a lrge scale. Much Smut Disease in Corn Thia Year. Investigations conducted by the department of botany, Ohio Ex periment Station, show that com smut is increasing in extent and that in some sections farmers are alarmed over its unusual abund ance this year. The corn smut disease attacks leaves, shoots, tassels and brace roots of the corn, converting them into a black powdery mass of spores. These balls burst near corn harvest time and infest the grain and soil when blown into fields in which corn will be planted next year. Experiments indicate that the corn smut disease dies out in from eight to ten years, but with con tinuous cropping the infestation trains in severity each year. If the smut balls are cut out before they ripen the infection the following year.is lessened, but for large corn fields this is impracticable. Crop rotation will aid in reducing the infection. With more than 100 towns in northwestern Ohio sending delega tions of their soldiers and citizens, the grand victory celebration at Ft. Meigs next Saturday, will be tlio greatest patriotic assemblage in the history of the state. Predictions are that more than 50,000 persons will gather to pay tribute to heroes of the great war and of the war of 1812. This assurance was given by Wellington T. Huntsman, chairman of the committee on delegations, which covers every town in north western Ohio, at a meeting of all chairman Monday. Mr. Huntsman said the celebration will easily sur pass any patriotic gathering ever held" in this section" of the country. Assurances are pouring into Toledo from outside towns, from the mayors and from chairmen of dis trict delegations, who report that people of their various communi ties are everywhere supporting the plan and expressing their plans for the day. As a result broad provisions are being made by the committees on traffic and policing for the proper handling of crowds and for park ing. Secretary of War Baker on Mon day wired Mayor Schreiber, of To ledo, that military camps in this section of the country have been instructed to send detachments to Ft. Meigs for the celebration. S. F. D. Mcffley, secretary of the Toledo automobile club, has left for Camp Custer where ho will com plete arrangements to bring hero scveral.detacluncnts of infantry and the Camp Custer band. Beside this a number of whippet tanks will be sent to the fort from Camp Meade. A sham battle will be staged. Military equipment also is to be sent from the Erie proving grounds, and airplanes will come from fields at Dayton and Mt. Clemens. The American Legion of Northwestern Ohio, and Spanish War and G. A. R. veterans are planning to attend in. a body. Lieut. Otto N. Hankison will give a demonstration by 'the Naval Re serves, with at least one band. One feature of the Victory cele bration will be the construction of a colossal ampitheatre in the ravine at Ft. Meigs. Seats will be pro voided for immense crowds which are expected, wherein former years the audiences were compelled to sit on the hillsides. The association now is endeavoring to obtain Gen eral Leonard D. Wood, one of the leading military figures of the country, as one of the speakers, in view of the ceremony of presenting six Croix de Guerre which- is to take place during the celebration. A tract of ten acres near the his toric fort is being disced and rolled for parking purposes. This will accommodate more than 5,000 auto mobiles. Strict police rules will be observed under direction of the mounted police of Toledo and the Boy Scouts of northwestern Ohio.
