IT IS CERTAIN TO BE A POLITICAL SUMMER Both Parties Are Preparing For the Primaries In August, and After Certain Candidates Become the Nominees the Real Thing In Fireworks Starts and Lasts Until November. SEASON FOR SLANDERS [AN EDITORIAL] THE people of Ohio will have a political summer. There may be floods, droughts, wind storms, excessive heat, and even a cold snap, but the main topic of conversation will be politics. In this state men and women have the same affection for politics a Georgia darky shows toward a ripe, juicy watermelon when he sees it on the ground and no one around with a rifle to plug him before he plugs the melon Told Without Varnish h Ben Long Searching For Brains Callers at The Sun office last week did not find me in the cubby hole some people refer to as an "office" and they wondered what had happened to me. Fact is I was busily employed searching for brains—and any smart Alec who cares to remark "And none too soon" is welcome to whatever satisfaction the paltry sarcasm may bring him. The reason for embarking on this arduous task was supplied by a gentleman in Cleveland who wrote a letter to a newspaper published in that city in which he said that "The intellectual conversation on a bus is vastly higher than in the clubhouse or on a golf course." t t i Here, obviously, was something call- COMMUNITY BUILDING ELECTION ON FRIDAY This Touches the Education and Pleasure of Hundreds of Men, Women, Boys and Girls In This Town, and Members Owe It To Themselves and Families To Vote On May 13.

So I set out to ascertain "View with alarm" boys will be if the writer of the letter had the around exercising their vocal chords, I right slant regarding the intellectual and so will the wise-crackers, the, content of dialogues carried on by bus know-it-alls, the smearers, ,the poison patrons. droppers, and the whisperers. j First I rode from the courthouse in Will Slander Candidates £?n,ton to-the street facing the Mc- All candidates, vegardie.of their f^/e £«£» SSS"?bS £ public _ Office, WllI!inirlT1 _,„ nrmnaitn rfiroM-W A<fs qualification for . ue—in certain quarters—denounced as "rascals of the deepest dye." Sensible men and women, however, will nbt indulge in back-alley slander but will judge the candidates strictly on their merits and vote accordingly. That is the stand The Sun will take before and after the primary. In politics The Sun is independent, but rarely neutral except when it believes that the candidates are equally capable and honest. If this newspaper is convinced after a thorough examination of the evidence that one candidate is far superior to his opponents and that his election means good public service, then The Sun feels it its duty to suggest to the people that they vote for that man. Deceitful Propaganda These days and nights radio listeners are told fairy stories, labeled facts, by paid agents of certain interests or certain candidates who privately call the majority of people "mutts" and say they will believe anything. To oppose such deceitful propaganda is to be honest with its readers, and this rule The Sun will follow to the letter even if it does make a few enemies for this newspapr. musicIlub, schools to present program Festival On Friday Evening In the High School Auditorium Is To Provide Funds To Further Club's Work With Young Musicians of Promise In North Canton and Vicinity. ing In an opposite direction. As" a matter of fact 1 rode all around the town. The next day I spent in Akron, and then on to Cleveland. It was a wonderful vacation. Several city slickers eyed me closely, but when I opened a book on the cover of which in large letters were the words, "Instructions to Life Insurance Agents," the slickers pulled the bell rope and left the bus in a hurry at the next comer. DR. HANSEN WILL SPEAK When traveling I carry that volume, and I pretend to write a few lines in a notebook. The trick never fails. It is a wonderful protective measure against bores and gents looking for easy money. On one occasion years ago I blundered. It was on a railroad train between Columbus and Canton." Several tough-looking fellows were in the coach. So I pulled out the book. They moved away, but a stout, well-dressed man with a pleasant voice approached me, extended his hand, and said: "As I am in the same business, you won't object if I sit beside you?" I had no objection, but when he began to discuss life insurance he had me cold. Before we reached Canton I was enrolled in his company and every week he calls at The Sun office and collects. He was around yesterday. John R. Rose is his name. No doubt you know him. * t t But back to the busses. At times they were filled with zoological noises, the inmates indulging in barks and grunts interspersed with occasional snatches of what seemed to be the American language. One choleric gent's grunts were directed against '"ism." But I did not discover whether it was socialism, communism or rheumatism. At the golf club I learned that some one was "definitely old-fashioned," and was "too dim for words." So I decided that the intellectual altitudes of the bus riders and the golf players were about even. The only really stimulating dialogue I heard during my investigation took place near the golf course. I give it verbatim: First player—"I'm rotten today." Second player—"You said it." o A Canceled Stamp A friend of mine residing in Alli- The Community Building has excellent board of managers, and always has had. There are ten of them: H. W.

Three are elected every yeai\ There have been some changes as the years have passed, for no particular reason except that the ballots just came out that way. The present members of the board are: E. B. Schiltz, Lester Firestone, Richard Hoover, Clark Wehl, C. W. Studer, Earl Waltenbaugh, Herman Voneman, Frank Gross, and Carl Sponseller. Chairmen of Standing Committees Each member of the board is chairman of some important standing committee, such as boys' work, physical, educational, etc., and the board as a unit makes policy, passes on program, personnel, etc. Three persons who have varied interests of their own, and who have a deep interest in the Community Building are named on a nominating committee to name candidataes for the board. Their selections are not final, in that if a member wishes to vote for someone else, he has that privilege by writing another name on the ballot, but thus far, it appears that selections have been satisfactory. Four In the Field This year they have placed in nomination four: Earl Waltenbaugh, N. B. Emch, Carl Sponseller and J. B. Miller. Three are to be elected. Friday, May 13, has been designated as election. The ballot box will be at the Community Building, and hours for voting will be from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. BUYSFURNITURE Earl Greenho Visits Jamestown, New York, Exposition. Mr. and Mrs. E. C.

Qlllllll Q" As The Sun Sees It Without Prejudice Robert J. Bulkley, Statesman SENATOR IBULKLEY ROBERT J. BULKLEY a few days ago announced that he is a candidate for re-election to the United States Senate. In 1930 he defeated Roscoe McCulloch, Republican, re- Senator Bulkley, running for his first full term, easily out-distanced Gilbert Bettman, and this year his renomina tion is assured for the reason that thc Democrats of Ohio have no fault to finil with his record in or out of the upper branch of Congress. Senator Bulkley is first of all a statesman. No man in Ohio—and there are many able men in this stale in both political parties—is more qualified to serve all the people than Robert J. Bulkley. His long and honorable service in the lower branch of Congress where he was recognized as one of its leaders; his unselfish work during the World War, and his eight years in the Senate where he is a commanding figure prove that he is a statesman ,and not a mere political sham of the back-slapping, handshaking type frequently seen in Washington. The great state of Ohio needs a man of his calm judgment, rugged honesty, and devotion to the people, regardless of race, religion or politics. The acid test was applied to him and he came through with flying colors. His letter to the newspapers announcing his candidacy is the open and above-board declaration of a man whose honorable character is well known to all the people.

GREAT FRIEND OF BOYS garded as a strong candidate. In 1932 High spots in the career of Senator Bulkley will be found on page four of The Sun today. James G. Polk Has Earned Re-election SHERIIT JOE NISI GREENSBURG WINS TT IS NOT the policy of The Sun 1 to offer advice to voters residing at a distance from North Canton, but when a Congressman seeks reelection it is a different matter, for a Congressman is a national figure and legislates for the entire nation. The Sixth (Ohio) district has been represented for a number of years by James G. Polk, a direct descendant of James Knox Polk, eleventh President of the United States, who was inaugurated in 1S45, and was the first "dark horse" in a national convention. Before going to the House of Representatives James G. Polk was a school teacher, a principal and a superintendent, and he made good in a big way. Bom on a farm in Highland county, Ohio, he knows the many problems a farmer meets, and as a member of the committee on agriculture he has consistently supported every measure he felt would benefit the agriculturist. A quiet, unassuming man, but a tireless worker, James G. Polk has made an excellent record in Washington. He has the fullest respect of men of both parties in Congress, and out of it. He is in every way a credit lo his district, and knowing the intelligence of his constituents, The Sun believes they will return Mr. Polk to Congress by a larger vote than he had two years ago merely to show him they have every confidence in tlie manner in which he looks after and protects their interests. Summit County Baseball Tournament From Clinton.

ROTARIANS MEET See Safety Pictures and Hear About Air Mail Week. The members of the Rotary club of Nortlt Canton enjoyed—as usual—a good dimmer on Thursday evening and then watched Roy Harpold throw on the screen safety pictures furnished by Supt. T. G. Denton of the public schools. "Stop! Look! And Live!" is the title of the illustrations, and they certainly carry a message telling of the dangers of jay walking and reckless driving. Air Mail Service Clark Wehl of the North Canton postoll'ice was the guest speaker. His subject was the new hours established by the government for air mail service. He explained a number of things and said that after a letter leaves North Canton at 4:30, it is picked up in Akron and that night at 8:30 it is in the hands of the addressee. North Canton has long been renowned for the quantity and high qua.ity of the drinking water that flows through the mains into home, schools and into the two large stand- pipes. Every time a sample of the town's water is sent to Columbus fo the state analyst for examination word comes back to the officials that it is "pu"re." The standpipes hold approximately 325,000 gallons, and Fire Chief Joe Smith" and his men personally see to it that the standpipes and water mains are cleaned frequently. East End Pumping Station In the east end of town is a neat looking building, and the outside convinces the pedestrian or the auto driver that some one takes especial care of the lawn. The "some one" is Fred Smith, superintendent of the water department and street, commissioner. The inside of the building is clean as a neat housekeeper's dining- room, and woe to the man reckless enough to throw a half-finished cigar or cigarette "butt" on the floor of that pumping station. "More Houses!" the Cry For several years the cry, "North Canton needs more houses!" has been heard, lt does, and perhaps it will have them. Evidently this thought was in the minds of members of the Board of Public Affairs, the Mayor and members of Council when they got together (as stated in The Sun several weeks ago) and decided to purchase 15 acres of excellent land about a mile west and north of the B. and O. railroad. Tom Poe of Massillon and his foreman, Herbert Dyer, were engaged lo drill a well. Getting the casing in and preparing for water took eleven days. Then the pump began to work and draw water from a depth of 17 feet. Continuously for 48 hours tlie pump was busy and every minute—GO seconds—1000 gallons of ice-cold, pure drinking water flowed down the sluice and formed a lake nearby. Test Ended Friday Night _ On Friday night the test ended, and the officials of North Canton are more than pleased with the new well. The ground is rich and, say those interested in water, there is enough of it on the land to satisfy the thirst of a large city and keep five or six laundries running full time for many years. The officials of Nortli Canton may not turn it into this town-until autumn days appear, but this much is certain: Better water never flowed. The well in the east end has a capa city of G25 gallons a minute. Sheriff Joe Nist was 40 years of age yesterday and last night he and his estimable wife held "open house" at his official residence, the county jail, which since he entered upon his duties as sheriff is inviting, even to those compelled to become guests of the taxpayers of the county. There was a time, however, when it resembled the Bastile in France before the natives of that nation stormed it and released the inmates. But let us forget Sheriff Joe Nist's birthday anniversary, and turn our attention to a few things he has accomplished since he entered upon his duties. He has made a few enemies— every man in public life has them. Insists On Courtesy Sheriff Nist is first of all a gentleman, and lie insists that his deputies must be courteous to the public—their employers. His work among boys is outstanding. He is making manly men of them. The "Sheriff Nist Patrol" has become famous in all parts of the county and the youngsters are enthusiastic in his service. The sheriff is very proud of "my boys," as he cafls them. Notwithstanding a growl here and there, even his enemies must concede that he has shown himself to be the best sheriff Stark county lias had for many, many years. His men are on the main highways and side roads at all hours, day and night, and there has been, less crime under his administration than before he took office. No fair-minded man will truthfully deny this statement. And he has kept crime down in the country districts to almost nothing. He Has the "Sand" Another thing about Sheriff Joe Nist worthy of mention is that he has the sand," some people call it "guts," to go out alone and make an arrest. He doesn t need a top sergeant and a body guard when he has a dutv to perform. The Sun was the first newspaper in Stark county to urge him to run for sheriff the first time, and his record was such it warmly supported mm Un- a second term. This newspaper has never regretted supporting mm, and the large vole he received in his second campaign shows the ugh esteem in which he is held bv the people of Stark county. ENTERS FIRST HONORS my countrymen will adopt the system of saving we hear they practice in certain circles in England, Ireland, Scotland and in Europe.
