Funeral services will be held in the Wolfe funeral parlors on Friday at 1:30 and interment will be in the Hiram cemetery.

Corbett of North Canton, Ohio, and Amma Garrison of Cuyahoga Palls, Ohio, and one brother of New Richmond, Wisconsin. Twenty-three grand-ichfld- ren and fourteen great grand-children also survive her. Student Under 'Garfield .'She was born in Howard, Steuben county, T>Tew York, November 24,1850. She migrated with her parents in 1851 to Troy, Geauga county, Ohio, where she spent her early years. She attended Hiram college when James A. Garfild was -president of the college. She taught school several years in both Geauga and Portage counties in which work she was eminently successful. Married In 1875 "While teaching* in the Feederman district in Shalersville township she met Peter N. Corbett, her future "husband. They were married aApril 19, 1875, and lived on the Corbett farm in Shalersville the rest of her life. Her husband died there in 1908. Had Remarkable Memory Mrs. .Corbett had a remarkable, memory aria*'specialized on birthdays and'-'fE-^iily hi.-ii->i-,i--.I..- -..lb*.'knew, the birthdays of hundreds of relatives and friends. Each day she would recall to those with whom she conversed, whose birthday oaoured upon that day., and invariably sent cards of remembrance to them. Her life had always been one <of .unusual activity and in her later years when household cares had been assumed by others, she devoted her time -to making useful articles which -slie gave to those about her. Told Without ! WIT, WISDOM, MUSIC Vamish by Ben Long An Appreciation 0 N RARE occasions some one thanks a newspaper writer. This week I read the following: "I am saying -"thank you' for your article about girls facing life in a large city. If it has saved only one girl from what you rightly term a 'living hell,' then it has served its purpose, although I helieve it has saved several girls. —A Mother." Let's hope so, Mother. I merely stated facts as I know them. It has ever been my creed that it is the solemn duty of a newspaper to protect the innocent weak from the corrupt strong. Accept, please, my sincere thanks for your letter. In New York 1000 girls annually fall into the maw of a hungry underworld. On the police blotter it reads, "disappeared," and to the reporters' ■questions the desk sergeant merely growls, "Just another kid gone wrong," and renews his reading of a "spicy" tab. o In Hitler's Imagination IN a letter to the writer of Told Without Varnish, a 'Canton man asks: "You no doubt noticed that Adolph Hitler had another severe spasm a few days ago. The former Austrian paperhanger says that 'the world must be in the "hands of the Aryans, who are its superior people'. Who are the Aryans? I have asked a dozen men and women <of the highest intelligence and they don't know. I am beginning to think it is what some people call 'baloney,' or the 'bunk'. Ben, have you a definitidn?" mi Tribute From Son When seen by a writer for The Sun this Wednesday morning in his office, Attorney Clyde H. Corbett said he would leave with his wife for Cuyahoga Falls either this afternoon or tomorrow. The death of his mother •deeply affected him. "She was in many ways a remarkable woman," said Mr. Corbett, "a splendid woman." POLICE WARNING Bicycles Must Have Lights—Air Rifles Breaking Bulbs. Police Marshal Ray Bachtel told The Sun this Wednesday morning that he has been receiving complaints from people on the following: Bicycles without lights at night. Several narrow escapes for riders and auto drivers. "Bicycles must carry lights. If riders neglect this important fact we are compelled under the law to make arrests," said the marshal. "Boys with air rifles have been breaking electric light bulbs and naturally the people are kicking. That comes under the head of vandalism —a serious offense in. the eyes of the law. Information will be appreciated by the police," said the marshal. Sure It Is a sign of intelligence to be It is seen reading The Sun. IHE best practical (definition of the word "Aryan" is found in the Century dictionary, and is as follows: "An Indo-European or Indo- German or Japhetite; a member of that section of the human race which includes the Hindus and Iranians (Persians) as its eastern or Asiatic division, and the Greeks, Italians, Celts, Slavonians and Germans or Teutons as its western or European division. The languages of all these branches or groups of peoples are akin; that is to say, they are descendants of one original tongue, once spoken in .. s> .-"ftjmted locality by a single community, but where or when it is impossible to say." Even the definition assumes a good deal. Under it the original Aryans remains unknown, and the division lines of their descendants -remains vague. Anyone who faces another and says, "I am better than you because I am an Aryan and you are not" assumes more than he can prove. t * * THEN there is the difference between Aryans and Arians. Aryans are a race, who may be Christians or pagans. Arians were the followers of the doctrine of Arms, who held that Christ was of the nature of God the Father, but not equal to Him and subordinate to Him. Arian has nothing to do with Aryan. It seems to be characteristic of Hitler and his followers that they should undertake to absorb all the virtues, powers and possessions of the Aryans, these chosen people of creation. It is all imaginary, and so I can only answer my correspondent's question by saying that, as people of the earth are now mingled, the Aryan is practically an imaginary being, and "Aryan peoples'" are only imaginary peoples. RETURN FROM FUNERAL ENLIVEN INAUGURAL Members and Guests Greet New President of The Woman's Club, Mrs. G. W. Henderson, At Annual Dinner of Organization In St. Paul's Hall. SLOGAN: CO-OPERATION An address hy Elizabeth Haymaker of Ravenna, president of Ohio Federation, upon "Why Federate" was the main feature of the annual inaugural banquet of the North Canton Woman's club on Monday evening. She praised the club for sponsoring help for the North Canton library and spoke at length with knowledge of her subject, and with assurance that federation meant progress. Good Meal, Artistic Decorations St. Paul's ladies served an excellent repast in the church hall on tables decorated with candles and flowers and the year book just issued, with chair covers in pastel shades to match the table decorations. Mrs. Roy Frye, the retiring presi dent, gave a short talk about the co-operation and work of the past year and called upon the different department chairmen for their yearly reports. She then introduced the new president, Mrs. G. W. Henderson, and •on behalf of the club presented her with a bouquet of flowers. Mrs. Henderson's Reply Mrs. Henderson's reply to her introduction was a short, interesting talk •upon the hopes for the coming year •and her pleasant personality pervaded her remarks, and gave her audience the assurance that the leadership of the club had fallen, as usual, into capable hands.

Th Boys who returned have formed the Legion Composed of Buddies from every region Men who were true to the Red, White [Continued on page two] Special Eb The Sun Washington, April 3—The Sun correspondent called Congressman Bill Thorn's attention to the fact that the home office in North Canton wanted the real inside dope concerning the statement that Henry Ford is giving one of his latest model automobiles for a penny dated 1922. "Anyone in North Canton get a car from Mr. Ford for a 1922 penny?" asked the congressman with a smile. Then he added, "Come with me, and you can get all the facts." Director Ross' Statement We went to Mrs. Nellie Taylor Ross, director of the U. S. Mint, and former governor of Nevada. She said she would like it distinctly understood that you can't buy a motor car for a 1922 penny. Lately she has been harassed by hundreds of letters from persons laboring under the impression that holders of 1922 pennies are entitled to one Ford car for each penny. Some one had spread the rumor that only 200 cents of this particular vintage were coined and that Henry Ford, already the possessor of 150, wanted to acquire the remainder. "As a matter of fact, exactly 7,100,000 pennies were coined in 1922," said Mr.s. Ross. o DENIAL BY FORD Special to The Sun Detroit, April 3—Henry Ford's business secretary today denied that his employer is giving "an automobile in exchange for a 1922 penny. "How such a silly story got going I do not know. But like the majority of fakes it is hard to kill. Absolutely nothing f" it," he declared emphatically. THE BOOK CLUB to "Art.'

Miss Pottorf gave a program on "Art" and displayed some fine reproductions of famous paintings. The next meeting will be enjoyed socially with Mrs. D. L. Glass, Mrs. Ralph Vogt, Mrs. Kenneth Weaver and Mrs. Lorin Wolf, hostesses. W. C. T. U. MEETING Well-Roundcd Program Given By Y. P. B. Last Night. As announced in The Sun last week, the young people's branch furnished the program at the W. C. T. U. program in the Community Building last evening (Tuesday). Richard Mansfield, president of the Y. P. B., had charge of the meeting. The program was as follows: Group of songs by Jr. Y. P. B. Y. P. B. activities, Mrs. Violet Pollock. Violin, Ronald Harding, accompanied by Ruth Wagner. Talk, "Moderate Drinking," Mae June Pollock. Piano solo, Ruth Wagner. Reading, Dorothy Cline. Piano solo, Dorothy Price. Current events, Richard Mansfield. Play by W. C. T. U. members. James Ginther gave an excellent address and he was warmly congratulated. Faith, Hope, Charity A WELL-KNOWN attorney of Canton sent the following letter to The Sun on Friday: "The two editorials in The Sun on Wednesday, 'Let's Have Action,' and 'Idle Dollars,' met with instant approval, as do many of the editorials in your newspaper. It occurred to me that a few words from you on Faith, Hope and Charity might help people to view our present financial troubles through clearer eyes. Why not try it?" The Sun sees nothing wrong in the suggestion. Speaking frankly, it is an excellent one. Faith, Hope, Charity ■—all of these are required to lead the American people through the shadows and into the sunshine of normalcy. FAITH that time and energy and patience will accomplish all things, even the return of prosperity to every family in the United States. HOPE that the course of transition may not lead us into paths that will retard instead of hasten the desired end. CHARITY that the mistakes of those who lead us may be viewed as of the head and not of the heart—that all is well that ends well, and that the end may not be long delayed. We have no perfect men, therefore we must expect from each a certain degree of imperfection. We may disagree in theory, in certain acts of practice, but charity bids us remember that in each man there is some latent strain of good. Faith, Hope and Charity, when practiced by an entire people, will surmount any obstacle which the human race has ever encountered. LETTERS TO THE SUN Youth Wants a Chance Editors of The Sun: In 1917-1918 the United States engaged in a great war and millions of men served in' the various military branches, thus receiving the status of war veterans whether they enlisted or were drafted, whether they saw active service or not. A grateful nation in part reward gave war veterans preference in civil service examinations. I think that was fair in order to enable them to adjust themselves. Seventeen years have passed and a new generation has been bom and a new generation has grown to manhood. Upon thse generations is the burden of paying for a war not of their own choosing nor in which they had a voice. In conclusion I present this question: Isn't it time that the youth of the nation be given equality of opportunity and not be penalized because they were not old enough to take part in the war?

Radical Doctrines h JJVERY person able to read knows that there is a well-grounded belief that many of our colleges and universities are breeding spots for radical doctrines, with members of their faculties disseminating these weird beliefs. Young people attending such institutions are at an age when anything fantastic or spectacular appeals to them, and they readily assimilate such doctrines. The next logical step is to go out into the world and preach discord and undermining of our government. It is through this system that many converts to radicalism are recruited, and it is through them and their superior educational facilities that the "borers from within" hope to put their doctrines over with the genera! public. If parents can not send their sons and daughters to an institution of learning without fear of having them converted into enemies of our established form of government, then such institutions should be closed. We send them to school for an education, not for tutoring in political intrigue and foreign propaganda.

We are an unfeeling people. We listen to the agonizing yowlings of some of our radio "artists" and don't do a thing to ease their pain. in New York city sent me a postal card this week with a picture of St. Bartholomew's church and underneath she has written: "This church is a wonderful place. I heard its history. Positively marvelous." I never heard of it until I saw the picture card. What is wonderful about it? Can you tell me? EDGEFIELD READER. Answer—St. Bartholomew's is one of the three largest and wealthiest American Protestant Episcopal churches in the United States. Tlie corner-stone of this church, at Park avenue and 51st street, its third site, was laid on May 1, 1917. St. Bartholomew's is.one hundred years old. It was organised in January, 1.835, at Great Jones and Lafayette streets. Its second home was at 44th street and Madison avenue. It is located just across the street from the Waldorf-Astoria hotel, the largest hotel in the world. St. Bartholomew's is always interesting to church-goers visiting New York. Its t congregation includes hundreds ofi leaders in that city's business and ; social life. It is said (although The j Sun cannot vouch for the statement) j that "Never is there a vacant pew in St. Bartholomew's. Many men stand during the Sunday morning' service." NEXT GAMES ON THURSDAY By BILL DODGERS Claire Studer, general manager, assisted by Willis H. Wood, after weeks of preparation, managed to get together six teams of basketball players for the "one, grand and only event of its kind in the world" (quoting Max Messerly) and last night (Tuesday) the first round of the classic Father Time tournament was staged in the Community Building. The first teams to play were Raymond Swope's Midgets and Charlie Williams' Professionals. They began operations at 7:00, and an hour or so later Atlee Fall's Shorts pranced upon the lloor to meet Mike Lantry^s Monsters. The score book showed the follow-- ing figures: Midgets, 39; Pros. 22. Classy Games Last Night It may be in order to state right now that this classic is for the pur- pose of revealing some of the outstanding tricks that have been used, in basketball during the past 10 or* 15 years. The second purpose is to keep the minds of the players far, far away from the easy money days of 1929, and the third purpose, or object, is to prove to many men that they are not old cripples.
