PAVING BILL BRINGS CLEAR EXPLANATION Attorney A. B. Arbaugh Assures Residents of Harm.an and Wise Streets That They Are Not Being Doubly Assessed and Are Not Paying Double Interest As They Believed. ONE PRICE TO EVERYBODY James Harrison of Harman street presented a petition to Mayor Wolf and Council on Monday evening protesting against the assessment for the paving of the street. It will be recalled that the State Examiner, in going over the books, found that the owners of property on Harman and Wise streets had been overlooked. Mr: Harrison said he felt that an injustice was being done to the resid ents of Harman street additional assessment will work an undue and unnecessary financial hardship . upon the. owners of property abutting said improvement.

Told Without Varnish HARPOLD MOTORS TO PLAY ON SATURDAY Give Crime Its Correct Name By BEN LONG HAVING just read a magazine article by E. Roffee Thompson, widely known newspaper man, entitled "The Halo Around Crime," I He spoke at am forced,'somewhat reluctantly, to The Heller Bros. Club of New Comerstown Will Come Here For a Return Game—Won the Last Time They Met Chick Evans' Pets—Have Defeated Strong Teams. OTHER BASEBALL NEWS agree with him that the menace of the armed'bandit in this country has suddenly become a very real one. It is the direct result of all the mistaken pandering to sensationalism that is going on. Thompson takes a wallop at the way certain newspapers feature a crime story, and he bluntly declares that "there are better ways of handling crime stories than with flaring headlines and pictures on the first pager- glorifying dirty murderers, low-down bootleggers and crooked officials." On Saturday, afternoon, Aug. 15, at 2:30 the Harpold Motors will be hosts to one of the strongest, clubs in this part of the state, the Heller Bros, club of New Comerstown. This*' is an industrial club backed by one of the leading manufacturers of Newcomerstown. They already hold one victory over the Harpolds. They have trimmed the Middlebranch club, The Nazir Grotto team of Canton, and the Waco team from this county. The game will be on the Portage street grounds. Go To Shreve On Sunday On Sunday, Aug. 10, Harpolds will i hit the trail for a second game with * the Lakeland Indians at Lakeland Beach at Shreve, The Harpolds dropped a close one, 3-2, to the Indians several weeks ago. The Lakeland manager had so many requests for a second game that he arranged this game which ought to draw a crowd. • A Fine Game In one of the best semi-pro ball games played in Stark county on Sunday, Aug. 9, the Harpold Motors evened the count in their series with IS a newspaper man with years of|*&™feS£ b^Sin?SemS2 fo XI experience behind him, Roffee i in a contest lasting eleven innings.

Rice and Village Solicitor Albert B. Arbaugh. The Mayor and Councilmen took part in the discussion. Attorney Arbaugh's Statement Attorney Arbaugh, after listening patiently to remarks by both sides, made the following statement in his official capacity as legal advisor to North Canton: "Property on Wise and Harman is not being doubly assessed and is not paying double interest. . The only interest included in additional assessment is interest payable if property owners do not pay theirNissessment in cash. When the assessing ordinance has been passed, which it is anticipated, will be Aug. 24, 1931, every property owner will have 30 days in which to pay in cash. If cash is paid, no interest whatever'will be included.

"Mr. Harrison was informed that the amount now; proposed ;to be assessed, when added to the original assessment, constitutes only what should originally have been charged against these streets: "The engineer's estimate of the cost of improving Wise.avenue was $8.99 per foot. The combined assessments on a cash basis total $8.07 per foot front. The estimated cost for Harman street was $7.37 while combined assessments on a cash basis total $0.78 per foot front- "The property owners seem to be- lieve that they were being charged interest on both bonds and notes at the same time. This is a mistake as notes were outstanding for 2 years and were then retired and bonds issued. "The result is the same as if bonds had been issued at the beginning of the improvements as the interest rate remains the same. . "The necessity for an assessment at this time was the failure to include, in the original assessment the construction cost interest, being interest on notes issued to finance the job. public life, is the increasing glbrifica tion of the gangster that is taking! place in the United States. In books, on the stage, in films, the gangster is held up as a romantic and colorful figure. His doings are chronicled with meticulous care, and his sayings are duly set down with as much thought and almost with as much respect as though he were a "wonder man." Will Meet In September The date for the rubber or third It is a state of affairs that is rapidly bringing about a real war between organized crime on the one hand ancl society on the other. And the more desperate the position becomes the more heavily must the responsibility bear on those who glorify crime instead of giving it its proper naime.

Why permit such honored names to stay on the shelf when we named streets after men who came here, bought a field, cut it up into building lots, got their imoney, and then said a long farewell? Let's have a little local pride in our old families. Other towns do, why not ? What says The Sun? ONE BORN HERE.

CURTIS, former Mayor of ■ Canton, was nominated on the Republican ticket yesterday for Mayor, receiving 4,552 votes. His: seven opponents polled 10,015 votes. Atlee M. Wise was Curtis' closest rival. His candidacy appealed to 4,135- voters. The figures prove that Curtis worn the nomination because the opposition- was divided. Too many candidates-- not only spoiled the broth, but made it impossible to defeat Curtis. The Sun wanted to see Atlee M.. Wise nominated. He is a good man,, clean, honest and capable. There is nothing to commend in Curtis' candidacy. His vote shows wherein lies- his strength. His opponent is Canton's present Mayor, Herman R. Witter. That he will defeat Curtis seems certain at this writing, although a wise prophet refrains from making predictions on the outcome of political campaigns. Witter trounced Curtis in 192!) when the people became heartily sick of the loose way the affairs of the town were being conducted in the Mayor's office. Canton owes it to itself to forget party labels in November and vote for Herman R. Witter. To elect Curtis is to instill into the younger generation a lax view of public morality* that will one day have a serious efTect on their ideas and ideals of citizenship. Canton cannot afford to do that and expect to hold the respect of the outside world. o Business "Taxi, can you take me to St. Pan- eras?" asked the dear old lady. "Sorry-, mum.
