CONCERT BY HOOVER BAND Pupils In North Canton Will Be Seen In Community House On Thursday Evening, Feb. 22, In An Elaborate Setting. SINGING A BIG " SI FEATURE Formal opening of the splendid new club room of the American Legion in the Community House will be made on next Tuesday evening, February 20. The program will be held in the gymnasium which will be for tlie evening converted into an auditorium and will be open to the public with the exception of sections reserved for the Legion members and the Auxiliary. The Boy Scouts in uniform will act as ushers. The program will open with a concert by the Hoover band, to be followed by a short address by\Mr. W. H. Hoover, through whose generosity the community is given the building. Following this the principal address of the evening will be delivered by Congressman-elect John McSweeney of Wooster. Mr. McSweeney is an active Legionnaire, having seen action at the front and receiving several wounds. He is a young man of tbe highest caliber and North Canton will hear him at his best on this patriotic program. Following the program in the auditorium the public \tfill be invited to inspect the. home-like Quarters of the Legion on the secon*} floor of the building. During the entire week of dedication the rooms will be open to the public and a cordial invitation to visit them is ..extended. It was originally announced that the signal-corps picture "Flashes of Action" would be shown on this evening also. Later developments, however, made it impossible to secure the film for this evening but it will be seen on another date in North Canton. An announcement of interest to Legion .men and their friends is the meeting at Canton in the McKinley high .school auditorium on Monday, Feb. 26, at 8:00 p.m. National Commander Owsley and State Adjutant Hugh Martin will make addresses. North Canton post will have a block of seats' reserved and everybody is urged to meet. in the new room in the Community House at 7:15 p.m. to take the 7:30 car or autos, as the case may be. North Canton post should have at least 75 in the delegation.

[Contributed] Thursday evening at 7:30, February 22, is "school night" at the" open- hearted Community House. An interesting program is being prepared by the grades and the high school. The prograjn will be opened by several numbell by the Girls' Glee club of the high school. Following . these numbers a pageant entitled "Midsummer Eve'k will be given by the grades. After the pageant a "Community Ging"' will be held. Miss Ford with the assistance of the high school and the 7th and $h grades will lead the "sing." "Midsummer Eve" is 'a beautiful pageant, which consists of. singing, reciting and dancing. All the participants will be in costume. CHARACTERS Dorothy Edna Williams Green Elves and Will O' Wisps Boys of first four grades. Flower Girls, Girls of the 5th and 6th grades.' Flower Queen... .Thelma Sonnhalter Spirit of Dawn.... Margaret Schick Herald Robert Pfoutz Dorothy is, told by her nurse that :.ny one who is good and goes into '.he forest on Midsummer's eve can :;ee the fairies. So on Midsummer eve Dorothy runs :;way and while waiting for the fairies she is captured by the * Will-o'- ".Visps. She is later rescued by. the Green Elves and taken to the Fairie Queen. She sees the fairies and is told to choose the flower that she would like to be and she chooses the Forget- Me-Not. ' . When the Spirit of Dawn comes to herald the break of day she tells the Queen -that a mother is weeping for her child who had run away. ' Then Dorothy wants to go home, but the Queen tells her that anyone who has seen the fairies cannot return home. The Spirit of Dawn induces the Queen to set aside her proverb and allow Dorothy to return home. . . . .' ". Dorothy is permitted to go to her mother ofter making a promise- that she will come back to the forest every Midsummer's eve. , sary for the high school faculty to make new rulings. All cases of tardiness and absence must be explained by a written statement from, and signed by, tho pupil's parent. This rule has proved very effective. The cases of unnecessary tardiness have been lessened to a very great extent. SEWING GIRLS BUSY The sewing class has been busy these last few days making costumes for the children in the grades. These' costumes are to be used "for the play to be given by the grades during the opening of the Community House. SENIOR CLASS EVENTS The Seniors are a busy class at the present planning for their commencement. They held several class meetings last week and chose their pennants. They are now making plans for their class ■> song, orations and class day program. Recently chey chose class rings and expect to be displaying them next week.

UNIONTOWN PLANS PATRIOTIC FEAST WANT NEW SCHOOLS IN PLAIN TOWNSHIP Board of Education Urged By Parents To Erect More Suit- . able Buildings To Meet Present Day Requirements. EDGEFIELD NEEDS ROOM Former Soldiers and School Children To Honor Washington and Lincoln Oh Friday Night, Feb. 16, In Town Hall. MUSIC. SINGING, SPEECHES NORTH CANTON HI PAY'DAY . On Wednesday, Feb.. 21, the high school is going to observe pay day. All old book accounts which yet remain unpaid and all books handed out for the present semester are to be settled for. New Tardy and Absence Rules Tlie excess ' of unnecessary tardiness and absence has made it neces- LETTERS TO THE SUN Speaking About Valentines To the* editors of The Sun: I am sending you a valentine at the request of my wife and ask that you hand it to the writer of the paragraphs in The Sun called "Slants At the Fair Sex." The "valentine" is that of a scowling old man lecturing a woman for her extravagance in spending $1.98 for *a new Spring hat. Underneath the "valentine" is written: "You are a sour-faced old crab no woman ever wanted, or else a man whom his wife divorced a long time ago. You are a small, red lobster that walks backward. Get new spectacles and see the good qualities in women." The policy of The Sun is not to print a communication except it is signed. . \Ve make an exception in this particular case. We have the word Qf Louis Agassiz, the famous Swi.?s naturalist and authority on ichiyol- ogy, "that "a .lobster is not small, it is not red, and. it does not walk backward." \Ve neyer joined thc Alimony club, and don't expect to. A- patent medicine concern once offered • the writer, of Slants $50 for his photograph, the same to be used ,as a pleased expression after taking two of Soakem's pills. New spectacles we don't need to see the good qualities in woman—the grandest creature ever created. Except for the.trivial misstatements mentioned above the "valentine" is a true picture of the man known among his intimates in the newspaper world as "Sunny Jim." This Friday evening, at 7:30, February 16—get the date firmly fixed in your mind—there promises to be one of the best all-around entertainments in the town hall in Union- town that section has known for a long, long time. The enterprizing and patriotic faculty of the big school assisted by the pupils are going to stage a Washington and Lincoln program, and they have called to their assistance the veterans of thc Civil War, the Spanish-American War and the Work! War. Needless to say that when the "call" went forth the gallant men, who know what it is to face danger, rallied to the cry and they will be there to encourage the pupils in their laudable efforts to secure more books for the school library. Comrade James Woods, the oldest Uniontown veteran of the war between the states, is to talk about Lincoln. Mr. Woods saw the Great Emancipator at close range, and his reminiscences should not only be interesting but inspiring to the large crowd. To the Rev. Mr. Shook falls the part of introducing the old soldiers, and that he will measure up to thc job is another fact that cannot be denied. The Rev. Mr. Adams will discuss "Lincoln af a Christian," and having made a study of this side of the President's life he has a message that goes straight to the hearts of his hearers. The community singing, led by Miss Ford, is another feature that stands out in large letters. Miss Ford's ability in this line has received recognition all over the state. "The Birth of a Nation's Flay,'' a playlet staged by the high school girls, is sure to please, ami the boys, not to be outdone by the girls, are going to put on a sketch called "An Old Chestnut Newly Roasted." The primary classes', the grades and the high school pupils have a prominent part in the exercises, and they intend to show ,the people that they learn a few things in school that will help them out in later years. Mogadore, Hartville, Greentown and other places have been invited, and while Washington ahd Lincoln will not be present in the flesh they will be.in spirit, and when the Rev. John Tome asks the invocation in his usual capable way the Shades of the Immortal Two 'will know that their fame rests on a solid foundation in the good old town of Uniontown. The members of the Board of Education of Plain township have a number of problems to solve that are keeping tho aforesaid members awake at night. And the cause of it all is increased population among children of school age and the desire on the part of a number of people to see that their offspring have the same advantages the youngsters in other parts of the township enjoy. The patrons of the Edgefield school are of the opinion that an addition to the building is a necessity if the pupils are to be given an opportunity to study their lessons under proper conditions. Although originally three rooms housed the children there are four in use this year, and this number, it is asserted, is entirely inadequate for the purpose, declare those who have given the subject of building close attention. The members of the Board of Education are being urged to increase tho size of tlie school, the patrons declaiming there is no valid reason why their request should be turned down. In other parts of Plain township are eight one-room schools. These are good schools, as one-room schools go, nevertheless there is a determined opinion among the*" parents of the children attending then that that they are not what they should be, and that the pupils are not on ithe same plane with the youngsters at Edgefield or Middlebranch. The members of the Board of Education have known this for some time and they realize that it is but common justice to give these children the same chance to secure an education. Consequently they- feel that buildings should be erected, but the question that worries the Board is "To build or not to build?" There are in every community certain persons who are opposed to any sort of building, and the thought of a new school building or merely an addition to one causes them intense mental anguish. On the other side are persons who believe that children study better in well ventilated •■rooms and that they know more "if they are taught more." These people are urging the erection of larger schools all over Plain township. In the meantime thc situation will grow worse unless something is done this year to properly take cure of the children. Next year children will be advanced, more pupils will enter the schools, and the year after next still more wil! be seeking admission. Increased popualticn means more pupils. This statement none can deny. From what Thc Sun can learn the members of the Board want to build, but they are anxious to keep down, expenses. Nevertheless they realize that it is poor policy to postpone the building, espectiully when a large portion or' the taxpayers are beginning to believe that their children are being denied thc advantages other children enioy.
