NOR?H CANTON, STARK COUNTY, OHIO, THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1929. .00 PER YEAR. N. C. SIGHTSEERS DIP IN THE OCEAN Side Trip Attraction At Atlantic City—Historic Scenes Thrill In Nation's Capital and Elsewhere—Salute Colors In Betsy Ross Home. PRINCIPAL BIXLER'S STORY It has been d great.trip for the 22 North Canton people who went on a tour of eastern United States as part of the Stark county contingent of sight-seers. . Historic scenes visited stirred the patriotic emotions of young- men and women of the party. Valuable information has been gathered. Emphasis has been laid on things wortjh while. In addition to the things scheduled, a side trip was take to Atlantic City. There the members of the party not ' only had opportunity to see Atlantic's waves roll in on the sandy beach but to enjoy breasting the waves. <And they did it. The "dip" was a highly enjoyable feature, says Principal Melvin H. Bixler, a member of the party in a special letter to The Sun. Latest, word was that the pilgrim tourists would reach home sometime today (Wednesday).. The description of the tour as told \u Principal Bixler follows: Interested In Washington There is so much to see in Washington that one could spend a week •id not see all. But most of us saw •nuch in three days that we were ■». to thoroughly digest it and njvu-eady to move on. The Washington monument has a ,rt of majesty as it towers above the ;her buildings of the city. The Capi- ol is grand, the Congressional Li- orary is beautiful and the Lincoln Memorial is sublime. All of us have our preferences of what is best in ■t Washington and mine is the Lincoln ■: Memorial. Simple grandeur the struc- \ ture has and the Lincoln statue ; speaks. If you ever visit this mem- ,; orial, walk to the left as you enter 1 and gaze steadily at the statue between the pillars; and as you look the lips of Lincoln seem to move as he speaks to the. people he loved, You do not think about the physicarstructure but feel the presence of the great man. The designers no doubt made the structure simple so that the visitor's attention would be drawn and focused on the statue of Abraham Lincoln. Words cannot describe what we experienced there—you must feel it. I feel that it is almost sacrilege to attempt to describe this memorial. At Mount Vernon Shrine. Mt. Vernon, Washington's estate, is very interesting historically and has a sort of dreamy, romantic atmosphere about it. It is said to be the most visited shrine in the United States. We saw many people there who wore the delegates' badge of the Dallas Rotary convention. Some of these were from Europe, we judged. At Washington's Tomb we met Dr. and Mrs. Frick and family and enjoyed a little visit. ■ Thursday we traveled from. Washington to Valley Forge. Here Ore camped until Sunday noon. Visit Coast-.Playground Friday the group motored . to Atlantic City. This side trip: was an added feature and had not'been planned beforehand. Many had not seen the ocean and wanted to see Atlantic City so through Mr. Briner's kindness _ we were given one day. for an outing. ^Bathing, walking along the boardwalk and visiting the many souvenir shops occupied the time. On returning to Philadelphia we had dinner* in an Automat. This was an instructive and very enjoyable meal for many. The ' North Canton crowd performed nobly as operators of the Automat. Repeat- Flag Salute Pledge Saturday we started for Philadelphia in a steady downpour of rain. We first saw-Independence Hall, and the- old Senate and House chambers. Then to the Betsy Ross House where our nation's flag was born.: Crowded in the room where Betsy Ross sewed the red and white-stripes togethenand' the white stars on a field of blue; we saluted the' flag and 'repeated the pledge of allegiance. It would be impossible for one to repeat the pledge in that environment and not come away a better citizen and with a greater sense of pride in one's nation. The entire block has been purchased and the removal of other buildings nearby will begin after .flag day. This money was not given by a few wealthy people but by over two million Americans a beautiful tribute to our flag. On our wav to the cars we saw Benjamin Franklin's grave. ■ One of the real opportunities of the trip was that a (Voided on Sunday morning when we attended church in the Memorial Chapel at Valley Forge. Those who have seen that Oliapei know what a privilege we hail. Our nation has too long been forgetful ot those' many unknown men who perished at Vallev Forge—not on a battlefield—but while maintaining that stubborn resistance that finally secured freedom from England. -o — Take Handicap Honors Mrs. R. E. Roshong with; Mrs. Don Pike secured the honors in the handicap golf tournament held on,Thursday at the Shady Hollow country club. Eighty-five membeis attended the play and luncheon which' followed. Budge was played in the 'afternoon., Pnzes were awaided to Mrs. F. L. KnejJ-'anil Mis. Phil. Mutlalry. TO REPAVE MAIN ST. Mayor and Councilmen Confer With County Commissioners and Agree On Plan of Improvement. Main street will be-, improved late this year. Mayor Becher and members of North Canton council, in a conference with the Stark County commissioners' ami surveyor in Canton, reached a plan for improvement. ' It was agreed that the portion of the Canton-Akron road known as Main street should be repaved either with sheet asphalt or brick. The county will pay half the cost and North Canton half. The contract is to be awarded in August. AUXILIARY ARRANGE FLAG DAY PROGRAM Members Invited To Attend Patriotic Program Session On Thursday Evening. ' The American Legion Auxiliary will hold their regular meeting on Thursday evening, June 13, in the Legion room of the Community. Building. There will be a short business session after which a most interesting program will be given. This is in honor of flag- day and is a patriotic program of which Mrs. D. V. Peabody will be in charge.

WILLM5CUSS ART Woman's CIub; To Meet June 17—Plan Patriotic Program For Session, July 1: HOOVER CO. PLANT i RUNNING NORMAL Repairs To Damage Caused By Thursday's Fire Completed Saturday—Big Factory In Full Blast Operation Monday.

ON WSCREEN To Show German War Costumes The costumes Margaret Mann wears in "Four Sons," coming to the Community Building on June 14, were brought from Germany. John Ford, director of the picture, toured the urban villages in Germany prior to his commencing work on the production and arranged for the purchase of: the old garments. This also applies to the uniforms worn-:-by the German offieers. Ford bought several dozen of these from former members of the Prussian Guards. It's a story, that strums beautiful melodies on .the heart strings. It flutters the heai-t and waters the eye of the sternest comer. Although crippled in various departments for several flays, the Hoover plant is running full force, repairs necessitated by Thursday's early morning- fire in the power plant having been made. j It was announced by Hoover Co. officials that the plant resunied normal operations Monday. \ Not only North Canton citizens but many thousands of other persons are pleased to note that the company of international fame escaped heavy loss. Thursday morning, about 3:30, a short circuit developed in the wiring in the switchboard pit of The Hoover Power plant and resulted in a fire that was only brought under control after considerable damage to all the wiring and equipment in the pit. ' It was necessary to arouse the plant fire department and as the short circuit had cut off the Ohio Power supply line to the village, the fire siren could not be sounded and the men were aroused by the blowing of the factory whistle. While the fire ..did not reach serious proportions, it resulted in the severance of power supply to the plant from either the plant generating plant or the Ohio Power company. It was necessary for the manufacturing department to be shut down for the balance of the week while necessary repairs were made in order to resume power service to the plant. These were completed by Saturday. TAKE NUPTIAL VOWS Mary E. Sloat Becomes Bride of Frank S. Sheely—Trip To Chicago Mary E. Sloat and Frank S.

He asserted -that Mohammedans could only be reached by example and indirect methods;; such as Christian hospitals and other institutions. He complimented the work of the Y. M. C. A. and said it fitted the needs of the Mohammedans; because it inspired ambition for education, and educational leisure and recreation. He told the tragic story of the loss of the four daughters of Horace G. Stafford with his wife who ^are independent missionaries with their two daughters.

The pupils of Pleasant Grove school will have their annual Spring"walk on Friday, June 14.

She is now sufficiently recovered to be able to get around but is still undergoing treatments from an eye specialist and will have an X-ray examination for her teeth later.

The Community Building swimming pool was officially opened Monday morning when Physical Director Wood and his assistant, Bert Williams, tried out the new pool with the absolutely new water. "Great," shouted Wood, as he came up from the first plunge. "Fine," sputtered Bert as he came up a moment later. A back flip by Wood off the diving board christened that bit of equipment; and so they made the rounds, trying out all the details of the pool. Bert even inspected the wading pool of the youngsters for more thrills. ' At 1:30 the regular class work in the pool started, and the "kids" that showed up right on the dot were some indication of the busy summer the officials at the pool will have. In a week or so, learn-to-swim campaigns will be organized with the purpose of teaching everybody in North Canton to be at home in the water. The pool was made possible through the Hoover company, and it is now turned over to the management of the Community Building for supervision. Questions have been asked about the methods for keeping the pool clean and sanitary in the future. Three large filtration tanks are installed and operating in conjunction with the balance of the equipment. The overflow from the pool runs into a huge tank, from which it is pumped through the cleansing system. Alum is added to the water and chlorine gas is bubbled through. After the water is washed and cleaned by this method it is pumped into the bottom of the pool, and the process is started all over. Constant circulation and sanitation insure a healthful pool of water that meets the highest requirements. The pool is open to members of the Community Building only, with an additional fee for use,outside of class hours; five cents for children and ten I cents-for adults. The schedule is: Swimming—Prep boys at 1:30 Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Fifth and sixth grade girls, at 1:30 Tuesday and Thursday and at 0:30 Friday and Saturday. Seventh1 and eighth grade girls, at 2:15 Tues- J day and Thursday and at 10:15 Fri-1 day and Saturday. High school boys! at 3 on Monday, Wednesday, Friday j and Saturday.
