Dorthea Smith and Margaret Hester Take Second and Third GRADES GIVE PROGRAM JUNIOR CLASS PLAY ON SATURDAY NIGHT 'Rose of the Southland," a Comedy, Will Be Presented In the High. School Auditorium At •Eight o'clock—Reservations In Community Building. DAUGHTER'S LOVE THEME In ' The Community. . Christian church on Sunday night Dr. Tien Lai Huang, "Unofficial Good Will Ambassador to the United States," talked in an interesting manner of his native China and with colored pictures shattered a number of illusions Westerners hold concerning that country: The pictures were 'exceptionally fine, and the Doctor modestly told his audience what they were all'-about. Palaces, hospitals, the Great Wall of China, children at play, and the hovels on the smalll boats were shown, as were the rice fields of China. Agriculture is primative in China, and Arthur Kolp would no doubt do a rushing business in Fordson tractors if he opened a branch office in certain sections of what is known as the Celestial Kiiigdom..sThe rice fields are cultivated today as they were 400 years ago. Dr. Huang sees a great future for China, and he firmly believes American capital invested in that country will not only develop it along Wes- tern,,lines but will aid /materially in advancing the Christian religion. And he is personally doing a mighty good job in bringing China and the United States into closer relationship. o Children sometimes flatter old people, but they rarely love them. The Junior class of the North Canton high school will present "Rose of the Southland," a comedy in three acts, on Saturday night, December G, at 8:00 o'clock in the high school building on Charlotte street. The admission fs twenty and thirty-five cents. Seat reservations can be made at the • Community Building on Friday, December 5, from 4:00 to 6:00 o'clock and on Saturday, December G, from 11:00 to 2:00 o'clpck for ten- cents extra. Story of Daughter's Love In this play a father threatened with loss of sight, a run-away brother suspected of theft, financial difficulties, a love-affair taking a wrong, turn —these are a few of the problems confronting young Rose Dorinda, on whose slender shoulders suddenly de- cends a weight of- responsibility for which she is ill-prepared. - ' "Blood will tell," however, and Rose Fifteen pupils competed for local honors in the Jackson township school declamation elimination contest held in the school auditorium on Nov. 24. Harold Sauder, high school principal, and Owen Shatzer, principal of Edgefield school, acted as judges.

Betty Kicko Gettysburg Address," Virginia Yoho Wednesday night about 8:40 the large dairy barn owned by C. E. Car- pei-j located- one mile west of North Canton, was destroyed by fire, as were a chicken coop and garage on the adjoining property of Gus Scharver. Mrs. Carper discovered a blaze coming through the roof of the boiler- room. Her husband was attending a board meeting of Jackson township school at the time, and a. neighbor sent in the alarm. Strong Wind Fanned Flames The North Canton Fire Department responded quickly, in fact it made a record run, but the strong wind had fanned the flames into a large blaze, and Chief Joe Smith realizing instantly that the fire would spread to several adjoining buildings put in a call for assistance from Canton.. Two pieces of apparatus from that city were sent out. The night was cold but all the firemen worked hard. A pump was run into the creek, and the men dug a pit for tlie hose and got water in that manner. Chief Smith ordered his men back to North Canton at 11:30. Loss $18,000 The loss is placed at $18,000, the insurance being about $9,000. Although his plant was in ashes, Mr. Carper began to deliver milk on Thanksgiving- morning, three to four hours late. He and his men worked all night so as not to disappoint his customers. Mr. Carper's Statement The following statement was furnished to The Sun by Mr. Carper: Notice to the patrons of the North Canton Dairy and the public generally: On the evening of Nov. 2G oui--plant I was totally destroyed by fire. Al- .thouglv,1our.,:loss is ,gi-est, we, still -feel fortunate that it was hot worse. The co-operation of the fire appartaus from ^North Canton and Canton saved tlie situation and we take this method of thanking the "boys" from both departments for their excellent work in saving the surrounding property. The Canton Pure' Milk company has kindly "taken over" the bottling and pasteurizing processes until such time as our new plant will be ready for operation. We appreciate the patience and cooperation of our customers during this period and we-, will endeavor to keep our deliveries and service as near as possible up to the usual standard. To our neighbors and friends who have "stood by" and assisted us in many ways we also extend our thanks. The plans for our new plant are now in process and we .assure the public that when the building is finished and equipment installed our plant will be the "last word" in modern convenience and sanitation. We expect to put the new plant in operation in about sixty days, when the Sunday evening, Dec. 7, at (i:15, is rally day for the young men and young women belonging to Zion Reformed church, and a social time is planned at a fellowship luncheon beginning at a quarter to five o'clock. There will be special -music. The speaker of the evening will be the Rev. E. E. Zechiel, widely known as the young people's pastor of Woostej- avenue Reformed church, Akron. The service will last one hour. At the night service the pastor, the Rev. Melvin E. Beck, will preach on "What Shall 1 Do With My Life?" Cardinals, the Town Team, Will Meet Mt. Union College Players In What Promises To Be a Rattling Good and Peppy Contest For Keeps. COMMUNITY BLDG. AT 8:30 PROTECT YOURSELF; BUY HEALTH SEALS The Woman's Club and Other Organizations Are Going To Push the Sale In a Few Days. Object Is To Combat the Dreaded Tuberculosis. CAMPAIGN VIGOROUS ONE The Health Seal sale will be sponsored by The Woman's Club of North Canton this year. It was so decided in the meeting held on Monday evening in the Community Building. Mrs. Nelson, the president, appointed as general chairman Miss Esta Stoner from The Woman's club, Gordon Curry to represent the American Legion, Highfield Johnson, the Rotary club and Mrs. Lester Swearengin, the American Legion Auxiliary. Will Visit Houses The basketball season will officially open in North Canton on Friday night, Dec. 5, at 8:30 o'clock when the Cardinals, the town's regular team, will meet the players representing Mount Union college. The Cardinals realize that they are going to meet foemen worthy of their best efforts and they have been practicing faithfully for the opening tilt. Mount Union college is widely known for the many high class athletes it has sent out to garner victories, and this year its basketball squad is said to be exceptionally clever. Willis Wood's Opinion Willis Wood, who is rather conservative when passing on players in any line of sport, told a writer for The Sun that he "looks for a good game on Friday night. Of course, you never can tell what the other fellows have concealed above their cuff-buttons," said Willis, "but from what I have seen of the Cardinals they ought to give an excellent account of themselves. They have been well coached and they have the grit to stick. Yes, : sir; I believe it is a winning team." North Canton's Team Rob Ewing, f; Ben Price, f; Isaac Littlejohn, g; John Swope, c; W. A.
