"The observance of Better Homes week is attracting nation-wide attention," said Mrs. Willigmann. "The movement was started three and a half years ago for the purpose of creating a greater interest in the development of the home in its. broadest sense, and since that time it has made remarkable progress, until now it is observed in almost every town and every community in the country. It is supported by private gifts and piiblic funds,- and is under the presidency of Herbert Hoover. Charitable, social, educational, civic and governmental organizations of every descrip • tion have .taken up the movement individually," said Mrs. Willigmann. She added that she will wait until the weather is "more propitious" before naming a rmnmittee to bring the subject befo' ■: the -people of North Canton and '!.; vicinity. TH3 WOMAN'S 6LUB M::-:.

The next meeting will be tomorrow, Thursday, Jan. 28, with Mrs. Earl HaH «f Royer street AUTO KILLS GIRL Dan W. Weigle, a resident of St. Paul, Minnesota, addressed a number of representative citizens on Thursday evening in the Community Building auditorium. As a rule Dan tells a few humorous stories, but as his time was limited on account of the picture show, he forgot the jokes and confined himself strictly to the serious facts confronting civilization. He advocates a number of things needful ih the building of character and the development of a town. He believes that far more people than now must take hold and help if a community is to thrive. No obligation rests upon the comparatively few who now help that does not also rest upon the many who now give nothing, do nothing. Carrying the Load ,^ Two per cent, of the people in the United States carry the burden of making a town fit to live in. He be Tieves in the brotherhood of man, in men and women organizing to "put across" the things that will benefit a '.town, and in his wanderings up and down the highways he made the dis covery that too many men are willing to have a town rely wholly upon its past without giving thought to the needs of today or the- future. Bouquet ,For North Canton He complimented North Canton on possessing such a place as the Com munity Building, and he declared that the erection of such buildings develop ed a spirit of mutual respect and good will which will make for a united citizenship. He urged Hhe business men to join a business men's organization, asserting that Catholic and Protestant were then on the same footing and could pull together for the good of all because such organizations as chambers of commerce neither had the time nor inclination to discuss religious creeds—their creed being to make possible tlie unity of mankind, the promoting of good ' will and achievements worth while. Towns Hfip Each Otlwr He said Canton 'Can help North Canton, and that North Canton can help Canton,' and it will be to the mutual benefit of both when \hey decide to get dose together and pull for the" good of all. Only through a business organization, however, is it possible to build a more prosperous and better community. To attempt to do so as individuals is waste of time. At the conclu'siori of'his address, he was ;cbngratulated "by Mayor Becher and other- citizens. Mr. Wreigle was presented' to' the audience by Lee T. -Lewis,-president of theNPrih Ciriton 'Business "Men's'Association. witWyIys Attendance Is Good and Much Interest Is Being Displayed. R.

Attendance at' the club' meetings has been all that could be expected and the fellows have all been much interested in the work. All has gone very well. Dr. Richards, for thirty-two years a missionary in Africa, addressed tho town Hi Y club on Monday evening at a special meeting. He sopke of the animals of Africa, told how they were different from the animals from ar>v other part of the world, and gave several pictures of the animals in their native haunts. This was an open meeting and all went away feeling well paid for the time spent there. Tuesday morning six boys were present at the watch service that the boys of the Hi Y clubs hold every Tuesday morning. Tuesday noon the country branch of the Hi Y held their meeting. The program took the form of a debate between Karns and Lorah on the desirability of having the school government run the students. Want Fathers There Next week the town Hi Y club expects to have their fathers meet with them. The boys are doing this that the fathers may see what they.are trying to do.. Later there will be meetings to which other members of the boy's family will be invited. The Mohawk club had an initiation and "feed" at their last meeting. After the meal Mr..Wood talked on how,to keep healthy. All of the boys erijoyed this immensely and hope that Mr, Wood riiay go with them many times in the future.

This service be gins at 10.15 o'clock. Sunday-school at 9:00 o'clock. No evening service. A special offering will be received next Sunday morning in response ,to an appeal from Grace Lutheran church, Washing! on, D. C. Many denominations have assisted their representative churches in the national capital to build churches in this city of splendid buildings. This congregation has secured a fine building site on Sixteenth street. This is'the strung on which the White House faces and along which many of the embassies are located. The site chosen is in an excellent residential section, \v.;ll adapted as a location for 'a^-'chureh. This appeal has been sanctioned by most of the districts comprising ou- synod and by the synod itself at its last session in Pittsburg. It is not the desire of the congregation and its pastor, Rev. Gerhard Lenski, to erect an extravagant structure way beyond their means and resources. But through past experience they realize the need of a representative and ade quate structure, at least. The wealth of the congregation is not sufficient for this, hence this appeal.. As loyal Lutherans and patriotic" Americans we are interested in tins congregation's plans and effort. Gifts for such a cause are not in vain nor to be regretted. To Assist Church' The Luther League of St. John's church, Rev. George Wagner, pastor, Akron, has extended an invitation to the local Luther League and all who may be interested in a Rally service next Sunday evening at 7:30 o'clock. Rev. Arthur Kuhlman of Pittsburg, Pa., will address this gathering on the subject of Luther,. League Methods." ,., : The Young People's society will hold a social gathering in the church basement on Friday evening. The catechetical class meets in the church on Saturday morning at 9:00 o'clock. ZION REFORMED CHURCH [By the Pastor] It was the pastor's privilege to attend the Ohio Pastor's Convention at Columbus, last week. Jam .39-21. It was the largest and best of the eight that have thus far been held. The program, the spirit, the interest were fine. Our own denomination was finely represented. The convention broke up into denominations at luncheon Thursday noon until the middle of the afternoon. Quite a number who were present in' the early part of tlie Convention had already returned home, but we had 61 present at our luncheon, which was held in the Y. M. C. A. building, when our bunch • was. addressed by Dr. H. J. .Christman, president of the Central Theological seminary, on "Comity" and the Rev. E. H. Wessler, president of our. Ohio Synod, on "The Evangelistic Urge." It was a worthwhile convention. We fell just a little below our- usuaL) number in Sunday-school, the result, of unfavorable weather no doubt. -The* report' read' 379 present. A ■ real: attentive and appreciative audience greeted the pastor in the morning..- In the evening, instead of a sermon, echoes of the Pastors' Convention, were given, that as a religious outlook. The Naomi class meets on Thursday evening of this week in the base- lrient of the church. Next Sunday's appointments are regular, morning and evening. All who come are heartily welcome. o THE COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN CHURCH [By the Pastor] We are approaching the most seriously religious season in the year, the Lenten period leading up to Easter. This has come to be observed by all churches. This is the most evangelistic period, the period of self denial and active service. This is the season when ministers get accustomed to expect more from people than at any other season. People attend church who do not at other times. People serve on committees and make more sacrifices with less complaint. We trust that this will be our experience. That things that occupy our time and thought will be put aside and the church will receive more of our time. Let's get the church habit. Subject of Sermon The subject for the morning sermon on Sunday will be, "The Processes of a Religious Experience; How '.t-> we get religion, or What Must I Do to be Saved?"- The night service will consist of o musical program by the united ch iirs of the Trinity Lutheran and the Community Christian churches. The cantata is entitled "The Triumph of David," by Dudley Buck. It is the story of David's triumph over. Saul as told in 1 Samuel. This is one of the great dramas of the Bible-and makes good material for., dramatic presentation. '"".' *, ' Jn addition to. the chorus of; two choirs, which has an unusual number ,ef good voices, there will, be a nun* ber 'of solos.■, ^ . :.',• „'! -^sjFhe-soloists, ase-iliss: LewJ8r<Mr8i| Robert.OFoeter, Professor. rWjn. B.. CONCERT NUMBERS AT- LITERARY CLUB Mr. and Mrs. Van Camp of Akron and Mrs. Grace Shoop Prove Their Ability As Entertainers Before Large Crowd. PROGRAM OF EXCELLENCE "Guest Day" of the Ladies' Literary club, observed on Monday afternoon, in the Community Christian church was one of, the most enjojed meetings of this well-known club. Music of a high order, such as North Canton folks know how to appreciate, was the principal feature of the program. Mr. and Mrs. Van Camp of Akron gave the concert numbers, which were well done. Mrs. Van Camp's numbers on the piano and organ proved her to be master of her instrument and a good accompanist. ■ Mr. Van Camp's singing showed fine technique, a splendid voice and good judgment in selection of his program. An enjoyable feature of his work was his distinct enunciation. Mrs. Shoop the Reader Mrs. Grace Shoop of Canton was the reader of the afternoon. Her work was of a high order and her hearers were truly entertained. All of tho;.-.i who contributed to the program were artists of ability. Mrs. D. F.

Get your ticket early as only enough will be sold to fill the church and everyone will want to hear these splendid singers. It is not a money-making club, as all the cash received by them is used in helping institutions after their music expenses are met. This club is composed of forty business men, who because they have good voices, love to do this work for art's sake, and the good that they can do. They will give their Concert here on Tuesdiy night, Feb. 9, in the Community Christian church. Strassner, Roger Kelly and H. E. Schiltz. The chorus, and the soloists, together with the organ and the special organ numbers; the scripture story and the regular devotional period should make a program that will satisfy and inspire the most critical. Attention is called again to the concert to be given by the Missionary society at the church on February 9 by the Akron Glee Club. This club is an organization of,the best male singers of Akron, and will be well worth hearing. o CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR Catherine Bishop was the leader last Sunday night. Mr. Thomas gave a talk on Latin America which was the subject of the meeting. This week is set aside for a drive to raise money for the Near East Reiief. The [.Christian Endeavorers are going to pass out pamphlets concerning this, which will be Collected next Sunday.
