NORTH CANTON, STARK COUNTY, OHIO, THURSDAY, JANUARY 29, 1925. 2.00 PER YEAR. ST. PAUL'S PARISH HAD GREAT NIGHT Installation of Officers In Two Societies Followed By Short Speeches Filled With Humor and Common Sense. Wilson Compton 300 GUESTS AT LUNCHEON The Confraternity and the Holy "Name Society of St. Paul's church held a joint installation of officers in the large auditorium under the church on Sunday evening. The decorations "were appropriate to the occasion and approximately 300 men, women, youths and young women partook of an appetizing luncheon served by the young ladies of Sfc" Rose Sodality. The chairman of the arrangement committee was J. Herman Voneman and to that gentleman must go one of the choicest bouquets in the flower shop. Under his capable direction everything moved along smoothly on schedule time, and members of other churches in North Canton, who were guests of the above-named societies, were not only given choice seats near the speakers' table but J. H. V. visitetl them several times during the meal to make sure they were enjoying the choice viands spread before them. Some Excellent Music Earl Ebner sang a tenor solo, accompanied by Edward Ream at the piano. This was followed by a soprano solo* by Mrs. Adam Keller with Mrs. Merton Kolp as accompanist. Judging from the applause and the insistence of the audience on an encore the singers and musicians made one grand hit. Officers Installed Father Kotheimer, as spiritual director of the societies, installed the officers of the Holy Name Society and of tlie Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament. Though brief, the installation was impressive, antl the deepest silence prevailed while the pastor explained what the members expected of their officers and the responsibility resting upon them. Wit and Wisdom Flow After the installation 'eyerypinvsettled back in their chairs: to hear the speeches. This is always an anxioua minute to an audience owing to^fhe fact that there are all sorts nof speeches. Some are dry as a page of tariff statistics, others dull as the modern novel, and others all froth and no botly. So when Mr. Voneman rose as chairman to introduce the toar.tmaster of the evening all eyes were focusetl upon him. In a few wall chosen words he presented A. M. "Hickey, president of the Holy Name Society. And from that moment until the speechmaking was at an -end the audience felt, in fact knew, that they were going to get the real things in speeches? Mr. Hickey got down to brass tacks at once by getting his hearers to laugh loud :and long. He said he had been such a failure in 1924 that the members took pity on him and insisted on giving him another chance to redeem himself. His wife had also "been reelected president of the Confraternity and <he would leave it to the audience If two presidents could live in one house. "One must resign when they enter the home, and I leave it to you men as to who that one is going to be. [Laughter]. I see the married nieD understand what I mean." This last sally "brought down the house," and it was several minutes before he could proceed. Then he tried to square 'himself with Mrs. Hickey by declaring that she was a good president, even if he wasn't. * He quoted a few figures to show that theHoly Name Society was steadily growing, antl he felt sure that J.925 would be a better year in all ways. The society was organized for the purpose of, teaching men to control their passions and to abjure oaths in their conversation. He reminded the men that swearers as a rule are slow thinkers and that their vocabularies are limited. Mrs. Hickey Has the Floor Mrs, A. M. Hickey, president of the Confraternity, and wife of Mr. Hickey, was introduced. She is a handsome woman ahd she never gropes for her words. She looked at her husband, smiled, and then handed him a few "hot on«s" that .caused a roar from liie audience. Then she grew serious and told of the work the Confraternity was engaged in and why it is going ahead. Her statements showed that it isn't all sunshine, and she appealed to t3he men and "women to,stand shoulder to shoulder and put across the socials and other features the society was interested in for the ben- fit of all. G. A. Rohner Speaks G. A. Rohner, Grand Knight of the "Knights of Columbus of Akron, was the next speaker. It isn't a crossword "puzzle to understand the reason Eohner is popular. He is the soul of good humor, and he looks as if some one had just presented him with a million dollars. He opened with a line of chatter that started the people to laughing, but when he got down to earth and told of the good work the Holy Name Society is doing in teaching men to converse without taking the name of God in vain he proved that a man can be a Sunny Jim and have a head full of common sense. He also paid Father Kotheimer a' compliment when he said that Akron was aorry to lose him; at the same time everyone knew he would more than make good in North Canton. ' More Music A solo by John Ebner, witli Ed Beam at the piano was appreciated .» , [Continued on page four] I DISCUSS CHILDREN FROM ALL AMES The Nature Faker Woman's Club To Hear a Number of Addresses On Child Welfare On Monday Night— Preparing For Baby Meet.

He was born in Berlin, Holmes county, in 1853 and moved to New Bedford in 1878 and to Baltic in 1888.

The children surviving are: Mrs. Morris Wilt of Detroit, Michigan, Paul Getz of Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, Raymond Getz of Mt. Pleasant and Max Getz of Akron. AT NEPHEW'S FUNERAL Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bingham attended the funeral of their nephew, Ralph Morgan, in New Philadelphia on Saturday. Yo! Ho! for the great open sea and the wild frozen north where romance' and tragedy flourish, where might is right and nature's law reigns su-1 preme. Patrons of the picture shows i and others who prefer to see the world as it really is will have an op- j portunity to satisfy their hunger on; Friday night, Jan. 30, when Captain ■ Kleinschmidt's "Adventures in the! Far North" are thrown on the screen' in the Community Bujlding. | That great conservative daily, the New York Times, thus commented, upon the pictures when they were shown recently in New York city: Singularly Interesting I The second feature at the Rivoli is "Adventures in the Far North," a t series of pictures taken during a' hunting and whaling expedition that; lasted seven months. They are singularly interesting. There are some fine scenes showing the harpooning of whales ,also pictures of walruses. But perhaps the best picture is that showing a polar bear and her cub. An attempt is made from the ship to catch the cub. When the rope is around it, the mother fights and lashes the side of the vessel. Eventually because of the remarkable performance of the mother bear, the little one is freed and one sees them both swimming off, the cub keeping very close to the big bear. Captain Kleinschmidt, who took his wife on this expedition, has had the picture titled as if it were Mrs. Kleinschmidt's diary, which is quite effective. It is a most interesting production and runs for about an hour. Regular Movie, Too "Sure Fire Flint" is the name of the movie play, and there is an additional comedy, we have been informed. The whole should "make for a pleasant evening." PULPIT AND PEW ZION REFORMED CHURCH [By the Pastor] Communion day last Sunday brought out a crowd.

In the evening the pastor spoke on "A Fine Example of Womanhood." The Naomi class hold their monthly meeting next Friday evening at the church. I The pastor's class in Bible study I meets as usual Saturday afternoon at I 2 o'clock. This catechetical class num-1 bers 23.

S. basketball team will meet the fast Y. M. S. team of St. Bernard's church of Akron. The local team wiU do its best to make the game interesting, but the game will be more in the nature of an exhibtion by the Akron aggregation, which has been together since 1918.

Not only have the members of the fair sex a sense of humor, but they are also the possessors of (at times) a sarcastic tongue, and when they merge humor antl sarcasm antl exhibit it on the public stage where all can hear it i.s worth anyone's • money to sit out in front and enjoy the tligs, slams and antics of those engaged in putting across a skit or play loaded to the brim with mirth- 4 provoking lines. All by way of announcing the fact that The Woman's Club of North Canton will present two short plays in the Community Building this Thurs- day night, Januray 29, beginning at 7:30. Those wdio have a part in the performances have practiced faithfully, and those who are in a position to know whereof they speak declare that the lines are as pointed as a needle and full of ginger as a homemade snap. In which case the playlets will go over the footlights with a bang. As there are no men in the performance it is up to the women to prove that they can handle the real thing in humor without masculine assistance, antl they are going to do it in the most approved fashion. Sewing For the Heathen The first grin-inducer is labeled "Sewing For the Heathen." The Sun has not been let in, as the saying has it, on what the title really conveys, and it may mean sewing for Popper or for the inhabitants ojntilose islands who regard a rotund missionary with a florid complexion as the choicest dish on the menoo. Wc have been assured, however, that even the heathen can extract without the aid of a cork-screw many hearty laughs from the perplexities the good ladies find themselves in while striving to tlo a good turn for humanity. The Cast The cast is as follows: Mrs. Judd, the hostess, Lillian Terrett Mrs. Chesty, the president, Edith Hug Mrs. R. B. Powers, a stranger Bertha Konkla Grandma Gibbs, deaf but persistent Mary Reiley Miss Luella Huggins, so sentimental Lelia Schiltz Mrs. Strong, a .suffragist *.. Rose Festerly Mrs. Meeker, gentle and good.... Agnes Nelius Mrs. Day, a bride Ethel Moon Mecly, the hired girl Frances Voneman An attractive feature while waiting for the second play will be put on by Mary Jane and Elizabeth Schiltz and called "The Skaters." "Fads and Fancies" "Fads and Fancies" is the title of the second playlet, and the big scene is a millinery shop where Mylady- goes; to purchase a hat. Buying a bead piece in the opinion of many men i.s on a par with swallowing castor oil wdthout closing your eyes, but for women it i.s an event of sublime . pleasure or nerve-racking tragedy. And as the ladies are going to give an actual, honest-to-goodness description of what actually takes place tho fun should be fast and peppy . Those In the Play Prologue and Epilogues— Mrs. Harry Wiso Genevieve Presby, saleslady Elva Bairstow Margaret Fulton, saleslady, Dollie Hill Miss Christine Moore, costumer, Mrs. F. G. Keifer Mis:i Thome, designer Miss Ina Mae Deck Florella, cash girl... Doris Sponseller Miss Mary Milton, college graduate, Mrs. F. Evans Lolelia Love, moving picture actress Sophia Mechling Doiothy Davis, high school girl.... Mrs. G. Hedgei* Julia Horton, high school girl Mrs. L. Franco Mrs. Rosmond Drew, dashing young- widow Mrs. W. Leed Mrs. Middleton, young mother Mrs. H. Swarner Doris Middleton, spoiled child Barbara Swarner Mildred Ray, bride-to-be M rs. O. Jester Evelyn Richards, society girl Mrs. Geo. Hurlburt! Louisa Lawrence, artist..Lila .A.lbeo Bridget O'Brien, Irish woman.... Mrs. H. Baughman Vera, attractive Russian Carrie Hill So if you think that a number of good laughs are just what you need to make you forget the weather wa are having go over to the Community Building on Thursday night. As one good turn deserves another, The Sun is willing to oblige the members of The Woman's Club by announcing that Martin's Millinery, 519 North Market avenue, Canton, will supply the hats used in the scene in the second play, and Lewis & Greenho the furniture for both plays. Ami the ladies are duly appreciative in both cases.

ST. PAUL'S PARISH
HAD GREAT NIGHT
Installation of Officers In Two
Societies Followed By Short
Speeches Filled With Humor
and Common Sense.
300 GUESTS AT LUNCHEON
The Confraternity and the Holy
"Name Society of St. Paul's church
held a joint installation of officers in
the large auditorium under the church
on Sunday evening. The decorations
"were appropriate to the occasion and
approximately 300 men, women,
youths and young women partook of
an appetizing luncheon served by the
young ladies of Sfc" Rose Sodality.
The chairman of the arrangement
committee was J. Herman Voneman
and to that gentleman must go one
of the choicest bouquets in the flower
shop. Under his capable direction
everything moved along smoothly on
schedule time, and members of other
churches in North Canton, who were
guests of the above-named societies,
were not only given choice seats near
the speakers' table but J. H. V. visitetl them several times during the
meal to make sure they were enjoying
the choice viands spread before them.
Some Excellent Music
Earl Ebner sang a tenor solo, accompanied by Edward Ream at the
piano. This was followed by a soprano solo* by Mrs. Adam Keller with
Mrs. Merton Kolp as accompanist.
Judging from the applause and the
insistence of the audience on an encore the singers and musicians made
one grand hit.
Father Kotheimer, as spiritual director of the societies, installed the
officers of the Holy Name Society and
of tlie Confraternity of the Blessed
Sacrament. Though brief, the installation was impressive, antl the deepest silence prevailed while the pastor
explained what the members expected
of their officers and the responsibility
resting upon them.
Wit and Wisdom Flow
After the installation 'eyerypinvsettled back in their chairs: to hear the
speeches. This is always an anxioua
minute to an audience owing to^fhe
fact that there are all sorts nof
speeches. Some are dry as a page
of tariff statistics, others dull as the
modern novel, and others all froth
and no botly. So when Mr. Voneman
rose as chairman to introduce the
toar.tmaster of the evening all eyes
were focusetl upon him. In a few
wall chosen words he presented A.
M. "Hickey, president of the Holy
Name Society. And from that moment until the speechmaking was at
an -end the audience felt, in fact knew,
that they were going to get the real
things in speeches?
Mr. Hickey got down to brass tacks
at once by getting his hearers to laugh
loud :and long. He said he had been
such a failure in 1924 that the members took pity on him and insisted on
giving him another chance to redeem
himself. His wife had also "been reelected president of the Confraternity
