Thomas appreciates host family, city for learning opportunities
BY ERIN COXStaff Writernews@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Jacob Thomasloves to tell stories and after livingin another country for five months,he will have plenty of stories toshare with his family and friends inGermany.Thomas, one of five Germancultural exchange students living inDelphos, is from Werther, Germany.One of his teachers at his school livesin Verl, the sister city of Delphos. Theteacher helps to organize the culturalexchange program with Delphos andexpands the program to include hisstudents in Werther, as well as stu-dents in Verl.“He wants to give as many stu-dents as possible the opportunityto try something new and learn,”Thomas said.Thomas had visited the UnitedStates twice before coming here inAugust but he had never been toOhio. He wanted to participate inthe cultural exchange program toimprove his English, become moreindependent, see and understand howpeople live here and try another life.Gary and Judy Mack, his hostfamily, have aided him in trying toreach his goals.“I’m pretty lucky I have such agreat family because they want toshow me the country and the way of life here,” Thomas said. “They giveme so many opportunities and that isreally just amazing.”One of the nicest experiencesThomas has had thus far was a fish-ing trip with his host uncle on a lakein Michigan.“I had only fished once beforeand I can’t remember it,” Thomassaid. “This fishing trip was so muchfun. I liked it so much. I learnedto clean the fish, put the worms onthe hook and then Judy cooked thefish for me and I got to eat it. It wasamazing.”He also visited Hocking Hills,attended the Lima and Van WertCounty fairs and went to a Tin Capsgame.“Going to the Tin Caps game hasbeen one of the highlights,” Thomassaid. “We don’t have baseball inGermany and I really liked it and I’dlike to go again.”Germany also does not have pag-eants, he said, so he got to see aglimpse of what pageants are as hewas an escort during the Canal DaysQueen pageant.His favorite experience has beenattending the football games.“In comparison to what I have inGermany, the football games are real-ly amazing,” Thomas said. “Everyonecomes together to support the teamand it shows so much strength withthe school and the city.”Thomas has noticed school spiritis a week-long activity.“The whole week is workingtowards this one night,” Thomas said.“The supporters and the whole schoolwill stand there to watch the gameand it’s really cold and it doesn’tbother them. They want to supporttheir team”Thomas is a tuba player and playsthe sousaphone in the marching bandat Jefferson. He had never marchedbefore but he said the nerves do notcompare to the nerves he gets whenplaying in competitions in Germanyin front of a jury rather than a stadiumfull of football fans.“I may get a little nervous aboutforgetting my marching steps but notthe playing part,” Thomas said.

Penna. Railroad PutsUp Coal Oil Lamps
City councilman, Harter,reported that instead of thePenna. company putting up anarc lamp at their crossing onJefferson street, as requestedof them by the Clerk, a coaloil lamp has been mounted ona post. On motion of Harterand second by Kaverman, thematter was left to the StreetLight and Police Committeeto see that the orders of thecouncil were fulfilled.Kaverman reported on thedirty condition of the water inthe well at King Bros. drugstore. Sevitz moved the counciland Fast gave assent that theFire Department committee seethat the well was attended to.Kaverman again broughtup the matter of the defectivefloors on canal bridges, and theone on Third Street in particu-lar, where a two-crack exists,and many of the boards aredangerously worn. On motionof Fast and seconded by Harter,the clerk was instructed to oncemore notify the commissionersin regard to the matter.Fast, of the Forth ward, thentook the floor, and in deter-mined words, spoke of the cry-ing necessity of a watchmanat the Main Street crossing of the P.F. railroad. There is nota more dangerous crossing intown than this one, as Mr. Fastcan testify, as he was nearlycaught and crushed by the cars afew days ago while trains wereswitching on the main and sidetracks. Mr. Sevitz agreed withhim, that a watchman shouldbe stationed there, and statedthat three years ago the councilclerk notified the company totake action, but the matter fellthrough for some reason.Delphos Herald,Dec. 18, 1895—————
Farmers Use OldRails to FightCorn Borer
Farmers in the vicinity of Delphos, in fighting the cornborer, will be interested toknow that rails may be pro-cured in Delphos.Three railroads haveagreed to furnish rails tofarmers for this purpose, thePennsylvania, Nickel Plateand B. & O. being named.At the local office of theClover Leaf, a Nickel Plateline, a price of $6.50 for aseventy-five or eighty poundrail is being quoted. It is stat-ed that the Pennsylvania hasquoted the same price.The Clover Leaf agenthere has instructions to sellrails to farmers if they wishthem. No instructions haveyet been received at thePennsylvania station here.It is understood that therailroads are making an extracharge for cutting, wherefarmers desire shorter lengthsof rails.The use of these heavy railsis strongly recommended byboth State and Federal officialsas a means of destroying theborer and facilitating cleanupregulations. Dragged across theheavy stubble they prove mostefficient in breaking down thestalks before burning or plow-ing under.Delphos Herald,Mar. 26, 1927—————
No Doctor BillsAllowed In Russia
Moscow — Russians paytheir doctors what they thinktheir services are worth andit is usually not very much.Physicians are not allowedto render bills for medicalattendance, a tradition whichgrew up under the Czars andstill is observed.Only the most expert spe-cialists have ever been permit-ted to make definite chargeswhich usually is less than $5per visit; and even these leadingdoctors regularly give severalfree treatments each week.If a physician, offendedat being offered fifty centsfor his services, spurns themoney and declares that hewould rather give his ser-vices free than for such a pal-try charge, he is liable to beexpulsioned from the medicalassn. for unethical conduct.In spite of these apparenthandicaps, the Russian medi-cal schools are over-crowdedwith students, more than half of whom are women.Delphos Herald,Mar. 26, 1927—————
