One Year Ago
• How much can a head coach say after watching his team struggle to put away a 2-14 team, shoot a dismal 30 percent from the field, yet still pull out the victory? “We survived,” said Coach Dave Hoffman after watching his Jefferson Lady Wildcats eventually register a 41-22 win over a pesky Ada squad.
• Gene Morris, superintendent of postal operations at the Delphos Post Office, gave Jeff Metcalfe, a Delphos letter carrier, a special achievement cash award for “outstanding work performance and a dedicated attitude toward his profession.” Letter carriers Gloria Baughn and Barbara Hayson received a pay increase for “outstanding performance, perfect safety record and good attendance.”
• Fourteen members of the Past Chiefs Association responded to roll call at a meeting of the group held Tuesday evening in the home of Mrs. Alfred Allemeier, Moening Street. Jean Redd and Jeanette Zimmer were the assistant hostesses. The president, Mrs. Don Miller, read “The Religion of Abraham Lincoln,” as written by a Christian layman, J. C. Penny.
• A Mardi Gras will be held in Memorial Hall in Fort Jennings, starting at 8:30 p.m. Feb. 23. Proceeds from the affair will go towards the new school fund at Fort Jennings. The party will be for adults and will include eastern and western style dancing, good food, refreshments, clowns, games and favors. Mardi Gras costumes will be optional.
• The regular semi-monthly meeting of the Delphos Model Airplane Club was held Friday at Jefferson School. Several members worked on model planes. One being built by Bill Berry is attracting attention. The plane will be a working model powered by a gasoline motor. Two new members, Harold Teman and Jack Fitzgerald, were voted into the club.
• A number of Delphos people plan to go to Middle Point Sunday evening to be present at the first showing of the motion feature, “Hearthstone and Altars” at the Presbyterian Church. The scene of the picture is in the parish of Temple Hills near Oak Hill in Jackson County. It is of interest to many of the Welsh citizens of this county, since many of them have come from the parish in days gone by.
