In Canton Have Been Submitted By Him To Director of National Youth Administration. STARTS BALL A-ROLLING ^Special to The Sun Washington, D.

Paul is my favorite. He went the full-course.'He kept the faith. He gawe the Ibrow, never the back, to the enemy. In the language of the turf, he wasn't a short horse. t X t LOOK at America today!! Where is the bpasted "rugged 'individualism" certain men prate about'but never practice for the reason that it means taking it on the chin and coming back for more. Here and 'there you will find a young man willing to take the gaff because Tie "has confidence in himself and "knows that eventually he must win. But the majority of young men and women born of American parents prefer to read about victories; it is too much work, too much trouble to go out and make the grade—on foot. All right if sitting in an eight-cylinder car going to the top of the hill,'but to trudge the distance—"Dori't'be silly. Such things are not done today. Moses, . Columbus, and the early Americans you quoted are dead. In their day that was the style, 'but it is out of date now," As a result of such a belieff the "gimme line" is daily growing longer arid the welfare agencies are ordering more books to enroll additional names. Told Without Varnish by Ben Long Were Not Shirkers TODAY, July a.7, is the anniversary of General William Tecumseh Sherman's march to the sea. "Marching Through Georgia" remains a popular tune in the north, and his expression, 'Madam, war is hell," is quoted in :a*U parts of the world. Bom in 1820, lie died in 1891, six years after his -chief, General Ulysses S. Grant, .passed away on Mt. Gregor, New York. A relative of the writer of Told Without Varnish was with Sherman on his :march from Atlanta to the sea. "It can't be done," thousands of persons in the north and south declared. Even the London Times' military expert pronounced the expedition "a fool-hardy venture. They will .starve to death." Sherman's critics overlooked the Ifact that in addition to his -other (capacities he had the power of endurance and had faith in—himself. Those who have attributed much of his success to good fortune fail to consider that he was a most indefatigable worker and that he never shirked a duty. XXX IF ASKED to name offhand the greatest man in history I would say "Moses." Not only -was he the world's law-giver but Tie possessed the courage and the ability to carry on successfully in his leadership of the Hebrews from Egypt to the, borders of Palestine. His life, indeed, was one long test of enduranee. In exile, before even he came to his life task, came the endurance of preparation. In my humble opinion "Moses set the pace for all men we honor'today. As children they learned ft is a sublime thing to endure when others fall away, and thus at the end of the day to be found faithful. Every great cause has it Pliables—folks whose pluck melts at the first breath of difficulty and opposition. There are always some who endure only for a while, enthusiastic for a mile or two, but who drop out when the going becomes rough. Whenever anything great has been done it is because some man, or small group of men, in spite of such defections and withdrawals held on, sometimes in great loneliness. Paui was such a "man. It has long been my belief that had not 'Paul "seen ROTARIANS, ANNS AND GUESTS ENJOY PICNIC Good Meal, Music, Sports and Moving Picture, As Well As An Address By A. E.

The members of the Sacred 3Jeart of Mary church, Harrisb-nrg, (ol -.wiiicih the Rev. J. P. McCann is pastor, will hold a festival on the chunch' -jg-rannas on Saturday evening, July 26. Father McCann has a large -number of friends in North Canton and vicinage and no doubt many of them will take a run over to HaTristmrj* on July* 20 and enjoy a visit witai him and other friends. o "If it's in The Sun, it's so." COOKING over the naimes of naturalized citizens in Canton a few days ago I came across one that carried me back to my student days, Mazzini, and I thought '"That fellow is starting right, wonder if he or one of his sons will beoome a second Mazzini?" After the dream of a united Italy, and the first thrill and enthusiasm, came the long road of opposition, defeat, imprisonment,-exile. He'had to flee to Switzerland and then to "London. A lonely soul deserted by one and another of his comrades. He speaks of his "moral desert." We find "him pawning coat and vest to buy food, yet all the time he sticks to his [Continued on page two] PRAISE FOR BOSS HOOVER The summer picnic of the North Canton Rotary club at the beautiful Hoover camp on Thursday afternoon and evening was attended by the full membership, their wives, children and ■a number of invited guests. The weather was pleasant and everyone enjoyed the outing. Under the electric lights President 'Charles H. Schafer called the meeting to order. He thanked the members for 'their support during his term of office and promised to assist to the limit his successor, Carl Sponseller. Former Presidents Speak Former Presidents Highfield Johnson, Frank Gross, Lee T. Lewis and Roy Harpold made short addresses in which they reviewed the deeds of the club. Secretary Frank McFadden read a list of the activities for the past year and the report showed that Rotary in North Canton is much more than a club, it is an organization of men imbued with the community spirit. In taking over the presidency, Carl Sponseller said he felt confident he would secure the hearty support of the entire club. A past president's badge was presented to Mr. Schafer and a president's badge 'to 'Carl 'Sponseller. A. E. Mitzel's Views The speaker of the evening was A. "E. "Mitzel of Cleveland avenue, one of the charter members of Canton Rotary and that club's first president. "His personal experience in Rotary activities proved interesting. Years ago he made it a rule to take youngsters 'to his home at Congress Lake during the summer, and today he goes forward to advance the cause of crippled and under-nourished children. He praised the North Canton club for its spirit of fellowship an dafter the manner of all visitors to the club, he'had nothing but commendation for the meals_ the ladies supply each week. He is an ardent Rotarian and he'believes that the club is bound to grow in size arid influence. Tribute To Boss Hoover He paid a splendid tribute to W. H. (Boss) Hoover. "Hundreds of men die-each year.arid they are forgotten. But not in "Mr. Hoover's case. He was a Rotarian—a great Rotarian—long before the first club was organized in Chicago. 'His gifts to charity and to institutions were many and varied. His name will always be lovingly remembered and appreciated for the reason that he loved people in all walks of'life arid gave them loyalty, sympathy arid service." Played Baseball 'In the early part of the evening baseball games were played, but as this writer failed to see an official scorer the hits, runs and brilliant matches must go unrecorded. Former Postmaster William J. Evans "starred"—not starved—on the 'bases. At the pace he was going the soup would have been ice cold had the tureen been located on the home plate. But he kept his poise going from base to base and when he was •tagged out he accepted the umpire's decision without engaging in any vulgar argument. Denton Was Umpire T.' G. :Denton .was the arbiter and his .rulings were accepted with a smile. "No *.use for me to kick," said Home Run Swatter Wayne Hummel. "Tom knows I have a dollar bill in my pocket and if I put up a holler he will fine me the dollar I'm carrying for good luck." The players were out for exercise, and they got it chasing the hits. If any fielder was overlooked it wasn't apparent to the naked eye. Everyone got leg exercise. The-error column was stricken from the score cards after the first inning, to protect the pencil pushers from writer's cramp. Furnished Music Before the .meal was served on the long tables Russel Rudy, piano; Arthur Foe, -v'idlin; Margaret Spang- ler, accordion, and Carl Lutz, banjo, furnished the music, and it was good music. No doubt about that statement. The piano was mounted on a Ford truck (free advertisement for Har- 0 Calling ID WE DO OUR PART The Sun ts a Member of the National Editorial Association As The Sun Sees It Without Prejudice NIST'S DEPUTIES ARE PATROLINGHIGHWAYS Day and Night Alert Young Men With Inquisitive Eyes Protect Life and Property—They Ask Questions, Too, In the Interest of Law and Order. TERRORS TO EVIL-DOERS pold) and Rudy manipulated the keys.. As a special thank offering to the musicians they were the special guests of the Rotarians and they dined in state, all by themselves, after the members and guests hail eaten. And did they eat? The astonishing thing about it was that Mister Rudy and his assistants had to be alm'ost torn from their moorings on the Ford truck (another free ad for "Harp") and carried to the tables. "Possessing the artistic sense we would rather give you a little of Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert and Victor Herbert than eat," exclaimed Rudy. The truth is he believes in a mixed program, half music and half where the grub starts to pass but stops when it reaches Mr. Rudy. He is a bashful lad, is Russel, and he has been known to blush when a second helping of pie reached him, but he never exclaimed "Pass." He explained it thusly: "That's a word I leave to card players. To permit a piece of pie, especially if it be a large and juicy piece, to pass you is extremely vulgar. I am never vulgar." Good Picture Show When darkness draped the camp a moving picture was snown. It was an advertisement for an oil company, but it was entertaining and educational. It took the audience from New York city to San Francisco and back. Airships, fast trains, mountains, valleys and famous pilots were shown. Michael Chelpka of "What, no more noodles?" fame was responsible for the picture coming to town. It was a real picture of American life as it exists today. With District Governor District Governor Paul Barrett of Findlay, called a meeting of the presidents, secretaries and committee chairman to meet -with him in the country club in Alliance on Monday. Those from Nortli Canton who attended were: President Carl Sponseller, Past President Charles H. Sphafer, Secretary Frank McFadden, Charles B. Williams, Dwiglit Harsh and Ward Mathie. Telling of the Activities of North Canton American Legion Post No. 419 and ef the Legion Auxiliary Sons of the Legion The initiation ceremony for the newly organized Sons of the Legion -Squadron of North Canton Post was held. last Wednesday night in the Community Building. The officers of the Squadron who ■were elected "by the members were installed at that meeting. Dwight Forney is the captain of the Squadron. Sons of the Legion will hold a meeting this Wednesday evening at 7:30. All sons of veterans of the World War are invited to attend. Post Meeting Every member is urged to attend the next meeting whfeh will be held on Monday, August 5, at 8:00 p.m. Annual election pf Post Officers WJU be held. Come and vote for the men of your choice. Ballots will be sent to all members. If any member is unable to attend, his ballot should be marked and returned. Are We Awake We, the" members of our Post, should be active, always willing and ready to do something constructive for our community. Let us take inventory of our Post work, let us as individual members glance back for a moment and find out for ourselves if we have been doing our part or if we have merely drifted along, being content to let the other fellow do the -work and placing the burden upon the shoulders of our •pffJeers, forgetful ol the fust that "an .organization can only be as good as its members make it." At the initiation ceremony for the Sons of the Legion last Wednesday, an organization we have agreed to sponsor, the small number of our members present certainly did not compliment our Post. Why are we indifferent? Can we expect the rest of the citizens of our community to be enthusiastic concerning the Post's program if wo the members are not willing to give our time and support. If we are asleep, let's wake up and take advantage of the opportunities as they are presented to us. Whatever prestige The American Legion possesses, whatever influence [Continued from page two] FARM UNION PICNIC MAY BE ON AUG. 25 Committee Will Meet On Sunday and Complete Arrangements. August 25 is the tentative date for the Stark county Farm Union picnic to which all farmers are invited if interested in improving the financial condition of farmers. It is hoped to have National Secretary Kennedy as a speaker. A picnic committee meeting will be held on Sunday, July 21, to complete arrangements, if possible. Other business of importance will be before the .meeting. Heard Prominent Men Farm Union members from Stark ■county who attended the four-county picnic for Farm Union members at •Gem beach on Catawba Island on Sunday heard National Secretary Kennedy, Governor Martin L. Davey, Congressman Lemke of North Dakota and 'President Haggens of Ohio division give talks upon farm questions. Those in attendance were: Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Humbert, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Halter, Miss Nettie Halter, Miss Eva Pfender, Mr. and Mr.s. Leo Koontz, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kiko and two sons, the elder son Russell is president of Booster; President Werner and wife oi Uniontown local and Mr. and Mrs. Walker; President Brieski, president of Louisville local and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Shoemaker of j Louisville and Mrs. Shoemaker's sis- j ter and brother-in-law and President I Kettering of GreenvjJJe local. j The Public Library IN THE news columns of The Sun last week it was stated that "At a recent meeting of the board of trustees of the North Canton Library the members of that body decided that all fines outstanding on cards of borrowers should be paid before other books are drawn, and the librarian was notified to publish this notice in The Sun and to post the same at the Library." No reason to complain about that ruling. Many book borrowers, whether from libraries or friends, have a habit of forgetting to return volumes, and, knowing this, it is becoming more difficult to borrow books from individuals. It is not because people are dishonest, but they are careless and indifferent. Years ago a noted scholar attached to Columbia univeristy published a treatise on that common practice and he asserted that persons addicted to the habit rarely reach the top rung on the ladder labeled "Success." If the Columbia professor is correct, then The Sun suggests that borrowers of books return them immediately after reading. To hold back a book deprives some one of the pleasure the indolent borrower enjoyed. That in itself is not fair play. Discussing books and borrowers, brings to mind that the trustees of the North Canton Public Library are proud of the fact that the patrons of the library can secure literature concerning any part of the world and the latest books by the best authors. Hot weather is not regarded as a time for much reading, and the majority of people are said to he satisfied with their home town newspaper, a magazine and one daily. A -visit to the Public Library proves, however, that people here are fond of good literature and that weather docs not curtail the output. As a result of this, all North Canton and its vicinity may properly join in congratulations to the trustees of the library upon the success of their venture. Situated as it is within easy walking distance from _ many homes; located in a beautiful structure, and presided over by a capable librarian, the North Canton Public Library is a distinct contribution to the intellectual life of the community, and as such we hail it. -o We Need Both WE MUST have the products of industry, strongly intrenched in the east, and we must have the products of the soil, just as strongly intrenched in the west and south.

This week will end up the second round of the Hoover softball league, while several postponed games will have to be played in addition to the regular games. Harold Scharver, president of the league, hopes to clean them all off the slate by vacation, July 22. Games this Wednesday evening are: Machine and Polishing vs. Die Casting and Fdry.; Engineers vs. Assembly and Service; Handle and Motors vs. Office, Print and Maintenance. Thursday and Friday evenings will be used in playing postponed games. The third and final round will start as soon as vacation is over. Enjoyed Festivals Members of St. Paul's church and their friends enjoyed a festival on the lawn of the church on Saturday night. The young people of Zion Reformed church sponsored a festival in Witwer park on Saturday night. Everyone had a pleasant time. could live for a long time without the fruits of eastern industrial concerns, but we could not live without the products of the soil. There is where the south and west have it over the industrial east. A wise senator or congressman will bear this fact in mind. Considering the situation from an unbiased standpoint, we are constrained to believe that it is rapidly simmering down to a gigantic conflict between the financial and industrial eastern states and the agricultural south and west, with the odds in favor of agriculture. The east has the money, the west and south have the votes at election time, and in the last analysis it is the votes that count. The Big Head A FRIEND of The Sun, visiting in New Orleans, sends a picture card showing Huey Long swinging the world by the tail. On the side of the card is written: "Why should the spirit of mortals be proud?" This The Sun believes is an appropriate time to quote another Long, Ben Long, who when he was writing the Philetus Bumpus series, had the following to say about fellows possessing more egotism than common sense: "The spirit of mortals should not be proud, and if my correspondent will take the trouble to read the poem by William Knox (1780-1835) beginning with the line, 'Oh, why should the spirit of mortals be proud?' he will learn some excellent reasons why. "David, the sweet psalm singer, glimpsed mortal man as a microcosm when he wrote: 'As for man his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind pass- eth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.' —Psalms 103:15-10. "David was a great and wise man— and so was Knox. Every great and wise man, now and then, appraises correctly at his full value this small creature hurrying hither and yon known as man-*—a creature almost insignificant to the vanishing point compared with sun, moon, stars and whirling worlds in infinite space. "Only he who has not the capacity to think or cannot use that capacity, considers himself to be of much mortal importance. When the Great Architect who laid the foundations of the earth and unrolled the heavens like a scroll sees a puny two-legged male biped so conceited as to think he has that same world by the tail, it must cause the Great Architect to smile indulgently." THESUNWILL SHINE No Vacation This Year—Too Much Business This Summer. In former years it was the custom of the publishers of The Sun to close the office for two weeks during the summer and take a much-needed rest. This summer The Sun will shine each Wednesday at noon as usual. Duty, stern duty, holds us here, so we do not intend to neglect business for a few weeks' vacation. When you see an alert young man give your automobile a keen, quick glance as he passes on a motorcycle you will know after you read this article that he is one of Sheriff Joe Nist's deputies and that his uniform is his official authority for arresting violators of the law. On Sunday afternoon and evening this writer for The Sun took a long ride over a number of side roads merely for the "air." Several times he passed a deputy. Occasionally the deputy was chatting with a farmer, trying to ascertain if chicken thieves or suspicious characters had been in the neighborhood. Always On the Move The Sun writer conversed with two of the deputies. They are under orders to make a cer.tain number of miles each day and night along the public highways and dirt roads. They phone the county jail, tell where they are, and ask for instructions. Every section of the county is covered. If they see anything that looks unusual or suspicious they quietly investigate. Occasionally these alert young men are criticized for "buttin' in." This is unfair to them as they are doing nothing but their duty, and that duty is to make life and property safe in Stark county. Not An Easy Life | A deputy's life under the present, sheriff is not an easy life. The deputy knows it. He was told so in language he could understand before he was sworn in and after he assumed his duties. But the deputies are not growling. They are giving the public service and they are loyal to Joe Nist, their chief, and that loyalty calls for long hours on lonely country lanes looking for men that would steal an auto, a horse, rob a house or a' hen house or hold up a man. Thieves Are Worried The knowledge that deputies are roaming the county when the majority of people are asleep keeps many- city thieves from invading the country- districts at night. They Hhow it means, a battle if they come face to face* with a wandering deputy, and they know the officer of the law not only knows how to shoot straight, but that he will shoot. So give Sheriff Joe Nist and his men all the help you can if they stop and ask questions. They have made life harder for crooks, but much safer for decent people since the day they first entered office and took oath to uphold the law "without fear or favor." LEARNING TO SWIM A POPULAR DIVERSION Adults and Children Visit the Big Pool Morning and Evening As-a Result of Campaign Put On By the Community Building and Churches. WATER STARS ARE COMING THE SICK ROLL Peter Holl of Portage street ext. is said to be in a critical condition in his home. Mrs. Henry E. Grey of North Main street was reported to be in a critical condition yesterday. Mrs. Whitney Stout, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Claud Taylor, is improving in health and will soon be able to greet her many friends. I Little use to ask, "Been out to the pool?" Nearly everyone in North Canton has been to the pool and in the pool. It is beyond doubt the one great six-day attraction in this town. Willis Wood and Miss Margaret Schick and their assistants are willing to go before a notary and affirm that this season has seen the greatest crowds the pool ever entertained. The new diving board is popular and many youngsters are able to do some fancy twisting after they leave the board and before hitting the water. Swim In Clothes About 150 boys and girls were dressed in old clothes for their annual get acquainted with old clothes while swimming. Many odd costumes were used and comic stunts were performed. These affairs are promoted for two reasons—to have fun and also to make the swimmer capable of taking care of himself if he should have to swim with his clothes on in case the boat should upset or something of that nature. We hope to have a swimming meet at the end of this week. Learn To Swim Campaign The North Canton churches learn- to-swim campaign has proved to be the best yet. Boys and girls go in in the morning from 10 to 11. About 150 are enrolled and an average attendance of 125 go in each morning. Many are now swimming at least 25 feet or more and very few who cannot take the first steps. Adults come in in the evening at 8:00. Many are attending. The campaign will close Tuesday, July 23. To Orrville, Saturday The swimming team will go to- Orrville on Saturday with Willis H. Wood, physical director of the Community Building. o Ginther Files For Council H. J. Ginther, who resides at the end of McKinley street, filed his petition as a member of the village council with the board of elections yesterday.
