CHRISTMAS TOUCHED PUBLIC HEARTSTRING North Canton Residents Saw To It That Unfortunates Elsewhere Were Made Happy—A Great Day In Many Homes. EVERYWHERE FESTIVITIES By common consent all mankind paused on Sunday to celebrate in one way or another the Christ Child's birthday and to make an oasis of goodwill in the -workaday routine of the remainder of the year. The festive Christmas season was ushered in here early Sunday morning with church services and the singing of carols, and the festivities were carried on on Monday in hundreds of homes in this territory. Decorations were never more riotous, more elaborate. Christmas trees brightened nearly every home, and the glisten and tinsel were everywhere. For the poor and needy in other towns there were all manner of relief agencies operating in North Canton for nearly a week. Assisted the Needy * Thanks to the churches, the Community Building, fraternal organizations, missionary societies and private individuals, Christmas cheer was spread this year into the hearts of needy and destitute families, and into orphan asylums and other institutions. Hearing the cries from Canton, Cleveland and other places for assistance. North Canton promptly responded. Each church remembered the children in the orphanages and the fraternal orders sent/articles to cheer the younersters. A Hoover wagon backed un to the Community Building on rFriday and took many articles of food to hungry families in Canton. Christmas In the Churches In the various churches of all denominations Christmas was observed o" Rti-nrioir-mo'^"'"''' in the most fitting manner. At 5:00 o'clock solemn h- i "iass was celebrated in St. Paul's and • the attendance was large. Low masses were at 6:30, 8:00, 9:00; at g-on .M-n-h -mas-****: at 11:00, low mass. ...The singing and music and the procession to the .- crib in the ■ manger were -most, imoressive.

Community Christian Church The program priiited in The Sun last Wednesdav was carried out to th* letter in the Community Christian church at the 6:30 a. m. services. The musical pros-ram was one of the best ever er;ven in this church, and that is savinir a great dpal, as music, instruT men-1!-*! and vocal, has long been a sneciaUv there. The main floor of the church was crowded. A subdued light- in<r effect gave a most impressive effect to the whole services.

A beautifully illuminated Christmas tree in the Hoover park on North "The Rough Riders" Immortal- Main street is spreading the joyous message of Christmas over the whole community. It was placed there this year—as in past years—by The Hoover Company and expresses the Community Spirit for which this Ann has always been noted. Such acts of th'oughtfulness mean much in these days of hustle and bustle. They prove in North Canton, at least, that a mammoth concern—the mainstay of the town—still possesses the heart of a child and takes joy in seeing others happy. And while such ' " umanit; ing upward.

The village Council of North Canton will meet .on Tuesday night, Jan.. 3, when Mayor Becher and the members of Council will be sworn in, along with other officials, for two years. The only new officer elected in November was Lester Braucher and he will take Ed McCarty's place as village clerk. The Sun is not in the confidence of the Mayor and Council regarding the appointment of Village Solicitor, Village Civil Engineer and Street Commissioner, but as the occupants of these offices have given entire satisfaction for several years it is believed they will be reappointed if they express a wish to continue in the public service. The Board of Public Affairs will also reorganize on Tuesday. Two new men will be sworn irfr'. The next league game will be at Greentown oh Friday night, December 30.

The Industry girls. took the opener 16 to W, and tV° JJo'-t-'rCanton boys romped away with the .second game, 42 to 15. The North Canton girls stepped ahead with a four point lead, but held it for only one period. Thereafter the' score shifted with North Canton leading most of the time, ancl the half ended with the visitors trailing by three points. jlansfield was the only player, to score for North Canton during the last half while the visitors tallied eight points, giving them the winning ; margin. j The North Canton girls lacked all ' the fine passwork displayed against | the Louisville team the previous week.

Theodore Roosevelt leading their Rough Riders. Such is the picture that women love, men praise and the youngsters wait for! In the years that have followed the charge of Roosevelt's Rough Riders under a withering fire up San Juan Hill the valor of that broken line of men has been precious lo the hearts of all Americans. Fiercely, with tigerish fury—in a way to strike terror to the bosom of the bravest foe—the picture shows the rushing madmen leaping toward. the Spanish guns. They are following a battle-flag' of polka-dot blue—a kerchief soaked with sweat that shields the neck of Theodore Roosevelt from the blistering h-Sat of the sun. Charge At Kettle Hill On an elevation is a red-tiled ranch- housei now known as Kettle Hill, and from it comes blast after blast of iron death. A simple thing, after all, to the decisive mind of T. R. His men are maligned in a jungle area. Before them is an open basin and up on the crest a hut with a straight trench in front of it. , Roosevelt swings his hat and gives the order to charge. His pony, Texas, leaps forward. Behind him comes a cheering line of steel-jawed fighters, their faces streaked with dirt. He waves his sword and the flash is a beacon of courage. Mauser bullets whine through the tall grass, stinging like deadly darts. A barbed wire fence forty yards from the top halts Roosevelt. He dismounts and flings himself over it. The Rough Riders come on furiously in the assault. Aligned with them are the brave'- black regulars of the Ninth Cavalry, a negro regiment that never knew the word fear. An Epitome ah Valor The charge of the uniformed individualists, rangers and pampered society dandies, up San Juan Hill, is something never to be forgotten. It is breathless. It is the epitome of valor and adventure. It is an inspiring lesson in patriotism and manhood. There is humor bound up bodily with this magnificent story, and to Noah Beery and George Bancroft goes much of the credit for characterizations of strength and fun that are finely native and genuine. Fred Koh- ler, the hard-boiled top-sergeant, gives an able performance. Frank Hofmer as Roosevelt is a revelation. Col. Fred Lindsay as Leonard Wood is every inch the soldier and a gentleman. When Hermann Hagedorn, biographer for the immortal T. R., wrote "The Rough Riders" he created something distinctive from .the depths of his beini*.

Moose Bros., authorized dealers for the Chevrolet in North Canton, announce on page seven of The Sun to-, day that they will have the new Chevrolet on display in their show rooms; on South Main street on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 1, New Year's day. The new car is a larger, heavier Chevrolet, selling at the same price as the present models, but designed to impress motorists as being distinctly in a class by itself. Reliable reports have it that its-body lines will resemble those of the La Salle; that it will be offered in all models, in a variety of color combinations optional to the purchaser; that it will have a 109-inch wheelbase, four-wheel brakes and a host of refinements in the way of ac- cesm-ies hitherto unknown to the low priced field. It will continue to carry a four-cylinder motor. Men close to General Motors headquarters already^ are stressing that the car is to be introduced as a product that distinctly is not intended to compete with other cars. PULPIT AND PEW Zion Reformed Church [By the Pastor] "Happy New Year" to all! This is not a formal and empty wish, but it comes genuinely from the heart. Of course the Christmastide brought real blessings into, life and home and this same joy sanctified by the presence ot the Christ Child is in wish and prayer to continue throughout the year. Our Christmas attendance at Sunday-school was just 500. Some evidently spent Christmas -away and some were ill. All our services foi the day were'- in keeping with the spirit of the' day and were frought with, blessing. We were so glad to have back with us our young folks from college, ;and that was an added joy. The Christmas cantata, "The Light Eternal," given by the Choir in the evening was a pronounced success. All this culminated in a brief White- Gifts service in' which our orphan homes (3 of them) were remembered, also our Home for the Aged, our Indian missions and Indian school; also gifts for various local interests. The day was a real spiritual joy and at the same time furnished the annual opportunity for family reunion. Next Sunday the sermon will make account of'the NeftpYear ahd during the service hour an election will be held for three ciders and four deacons. The term of office is two .years. The elementary " school held a Christmas service in their room during the Sunday-school hour last Sundaj morning, when the treat to the elementary school was given. Our appointments next Sunday wil! be regular at 9 and 10 a. m., at 6 and 7 p. m. All are welcome to all these services. mas. In another part of The Sun will defensive work.

Happy Homes In the homes here both on Sunday , and Monday the Christmas spirit -was cog in the Industry offense, making nine of their sixteen points.

Many young men and North Canton plays. The ball was in women are home from college, and their possession most of the time and even if the "kids" are a little bit bossy around the house, dad and mother are happy when they have their children with them. The stores reported a lively last hour business, and everybody seemgd determined to buy something. The weather was clear and not too cold, and as a result everyone seemd to be enjoying Sunday and Monday. o MRS. BROWNE GRATEFUL when the play was started every man was in his place and performed his part towards placing the ball through the hoop. . There were no outstanding stars; just -five good hard working players on the floor and they did their best. Ray Swope led the scoring by co'm- . ing -through from a guard position to make the points, but his work was possible because four teammates did Thank's Friends For Remembering Her While In Hospital. Mrs. W. L.

The proper selection and arrangement of the furniture, the right lighting effects, correct draperies, appropriate floor coverings—all contribute to a harmonious atmosphere. Perhaps no other one thing offers such a wide scope for the exercise of good taste as the choosing of proper window draperies that will be in keeping with the room. In the selection of draperies two things are important. Fabrics -of appropriate shade and type must be chosen arid the correct style of draping must be used. The purchase of Zion Lutheran Church [By the Pastor] The Christmas Eve sen-ice presented by the Sunday-school was well received by a large and appreciative audience. The church is decorated in keeping with the holiday season. The members of the primary department offered several exercises and recitations delivered with the usual pleasing childhood charm. The closing exercis-2 was a pantomime presenting "Silent Night, Holy Night." This offered a most pleasing Christmas picture. Thu service was enlivened by special music by Ruth and Donna Friend and the Sunday-school orchestra. Books were given to the members of the Junior Sunday-school department. •• Good attendance and a fine spirit marked the morning Sunday-school hour when a Christmas lesson was taught. The morning sermon presented the theme, "Good Tidings of Great Joy." New Year Sunday: Bible school at 9 a. m. Morning service, 10:15. No evening service. The Luther League invites all members and friends to join in a New Year's watch night social to be given in our church- hall. A good program AUTO LICENSE LlilT EXPIRES ON DEC. 31 Secretary of State Brown Says There Will Positively Be No Extension of Time After o'clock On Saturday Night, 12 DRIVERS HOLDING BACK [Special to The Sun] Columbus, Dec. 27—Secretary oi State Clarence J. Brown- states that reports from different sections of the state indicate that people are delaying the securing of their aulomobilo licenses, even though they have been admonished time and again that thero will positively be no extension of time beyond December 31st, which will leave them at the mercy of local police authorities if they attempt to use their cars bearing the old license numbers. Secretary Brown says that he does not want to be arbitrary but instead wishes to be of assistance to autoists, and if they will only follow instructions they will avoid a lot of unnecessary annoyance and inconvenience later. Warning To Dealers Automobile dealers, who use dealers' auto license plates and are among the several hundred who have failed to yet make application for their 1928 needs, will find thmselves in a bad predictment unless they send in their applications to the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, Wyandotte Bldg., Columbus, at once. Dealers have but one license number appearing upon their original plate. Additional certified copies of this plate are furnished for a small additional fee. Must. Have Plates Only the original plate is made up and held in stock, the certified copies being- manufactured by the penitentiary upon order, it taking several days to do the work. As a result automobile dealers must allow from a week to ten days for the furnishing of dealers' plates. Application blanks were mailed dealers early in November with a letter urging- immediate purchase. Those dealers who fail to have their plates by January 1st will not be permitted to operate on 1927 tags, or until r-192&plates are obtained, and will be subject* to arrest for violation of tlie time limit law. HARRY D. HALE. GET BACKING (NEW YEAR'S PROGRAM Yo,ms STZ!Ei*M,y'" COMMUNITY BUILDING Last week The Sun printed a short news article concerning half a dozen North Canton boys who were sad at heart because they were practically orphans in the athletic world. They were champions in the basketball game, having won nine and lost none last year, but this year they were looking for a financial angel—some one to buy them sweaters, a ball, and a few other articles. The Sun went to press on Wednesday afternoon, and before six o'clock two gentlemen, who must remain nameless—more's the pity!—read the brief story and called up Dale Shick and told him to "come around and talk things over." Dale is very fast on his feet, but he beat his own record by several, yards last Wednesday night. He saw the gentlemen, and they told him they would pay all expenses. "Just a Christmas present to clean boys," said one of them. The next day "The Sentinels," as the team is called, was organized, and tlie members are now waiting for games. Tlie captain is Roger Richards. "Say for us," said Dale.and a few of his pals as they invaded The Sun office, "that we are more than grateful to these two gentlemen, and we are going to show it by playing fast, clean games. And we want to thank Mr. Wood, physical director of the Community Building, because he is going to arrange some time for us on the floor to meet out-of-town teams. The Sun is our paper, first, last and all the time. It gave us the writeup and these gentlemen saw it in The Sun." The average age of The Sentinels is 14 years. They are: Roger Richards, Ben Price, Bob Pfouts, Marvin Hess, Evan Schiltz, Dale Schick. This week they will have their first practice game'and they would like to hear from any Class D. team. Anyone interested should get in touch with Dale Shick, phone 29 W, North Canton. WHITE HOUSE IN 1880 Mrs. Adams Found It Inconvenient To a Thrifty Housekeeper. On Monday There Will Be Music, Games For the Youngsters and Some Exhibition Work In the Gym of Interest To All. BASKETBALL AT NIGHT The staff at the Community Building have combined and interwoven their respective programs to such an extent for New Year's day that the people of North Canton will be able to enjoy the best open house tho Community Building has ever had. As yet all details have not been worked out, but some of the features can be mentioned at this time that will give you an idea of the program. The entire morning on Monday will be given over to tournament games in the boys' lobby for boys of all ages. The games will include billiards, checkers, chess, ping-pong, bean-bag and ring-toss. Every boy that enters the lobby is bound to get into some game. Music In Afternoon In the afternoon a short musical program will be held in the men's lobby. There will probably be several bowling and billiard matches conducted for the men downstairs. Some exhibition gym work is scheduled for the afternoon, and a girls' club will have an open meeting. The evening program will be a few musical numbers in the lobby, a Scout meeting open to all visitors, a girls' club meeting open to all. The day will be ended by gym work and a fast basketball game. in polTcecourt Colored Man Fined $100 arod Costa For Carrying Whiskey. the most costly materials on the mar- . .„ uu, ....„„.„. ,,„, ^wl!l fai.Vn°.thing if «■»* are notlwiu be pl.esented.

The addition as proposed may cost $10,000,000. And in the opinion of the institute authorities, raising the money will not be very difficult.

THE PRICE OF BEAUTY Some bureau in Washington, for lack of something better to do, has figured out that the women of America spend $1,825,000,000 a year to make themselves beautiful. Then, some nasty old statistician, who might be employing his time and talent to far -better advantage, has taken out his perfectly terrible fountain pen and estimated that this is more than the total war debt or something due the United States from Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Esthonia, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithunia, Poland, Rumania and Jugoslavia. It seems as though certain people are always just trying to stir up trouble and put false constructions or something like that where they just really don't belong. . A really nice gentleman, even though he were a mere worm of- a statistician, would have said that if all those funny countries" or whatever they are would loosen up and pay us their silly old war debts, think of all the lip sticks, rouge, permanent waves and finger nail polish the deserving girls and women of this country could buy. If the combined feminine beauty of the United States only represents a cash outlay of ?1,825,000.000 a year, sweet shades of Aphrodite, what s> bargain!—Harry Daniel in the Thrift Magazine.

So far as feasible it was returned to the original design. In the recent alterations, made since President Coolidge vacated it las! winter, first attention was given li the safety of the roof, which had become insecure. Aside from that, it has been renovated throughout with-" out disturbing the beauty and sound lines of (ho building. How different are the conditions to which President and Mrs. Coolideg return from those President and Mrs. Adams faced when they first entered the White House! On the site selected by Washington and Major L'Enfant in 1791, Hoban had planned and constructed the main body of the building as it stands today. Less than four months after the removal of the government from Philadelphia in June 1800, President Adams and his wife moved into the new mansion in Washington. A few days after her arrival in November, Mrs. Adams, in a letter to her daughter, Mrs. Smith, in Massachusetts, drew this picture: "The house is on a grand and superb scale, requiring about thirty servants, to attend and keep the apartments in order and perform the ordinary business of the house and stable, an establishment very well proportioned to the President's salary (then ?25,000). The lighting the apartments, from the kitchen to the parlors and chambers, is a tax indeed; and the fires we are obliged to keep to secure us from daily agues, is another very cheering comfort. To assist us in this great castle, and render less attendance necessary, bells are wholly wanting, not one single one being hung in the whole house, ami promises are all you can obtain. This is so great an inconvenience that I know not what to do, or how to do. . . . If (hey will put me up some bells, and let me have wood enough to keep fires, I design to be pleased. I could content myself almost anywhere three months; but surrounded with forests, can you believe that wood is not to be had, because people cannot be found to cut and cart it? Briesler entered into a contract with a man to supply him wood; a small part, a few cords, only has he been able to get. Most of that was expended to dry the. walls of the house before we came in, and yesterday the man told him it was h possible for him to procure it to be cut and carted. He had had recourse to coals; but we cannot get grates made and set. We have indeed come into a now country. ..." The one thought of the first mistress of the White House was to get wood enough to keep warm, and the first u-=e she made of the East Room was to hang out the faniily wash.— New York World. Aaron Suber, who says he works in Aultman, but was born and reared in Newberry, a town of 9,000 persons in South Carolina, was fined $100 and costs by Mayor Becher for carrying a suitcase containing two gallons of corn liauor. . •■ j,, This Wednesday niorning Aaron was gazing through the nine^o'-dia- monds in the city hall wondering whether his friends would be able to raise the money to pay his fine. If they fail to produce the coin Aaron will become a guest of the county workhouse for a month or longer. Officer John Curry was standing on the Square when he saw the colored man leave a North Canton bus with a suitcase. Something about the fellow convinced Curry that a closer examination would be advisable. So he crossed the street. That is he started to cross. When tho colored man from Newberry, South Carolina, saw Curry headed his way, he, too, became suspicious, so much so that in his excitement he dropped the big suitcase and began to sprint down East Maple street. When the bag hit the pavement two jars broke with a bang, and some onlookers thought a cannon had exploded. After a chase Curry caught the man and locked him up. He said he secured the whiskey in Canton and I was taking it to Aultman. While waiting for the Greentown i bus he saw Officer Curry, "And 'deed ! boss, dat dere man hab a bad eye.

HENRY WARD BEECHER Henry Ward Beecher was a great lover of children. He was happiest when, seated in his favorite arm chair in the evening, his grandchildren climbed and pawed -over him or nestled in his lap. It was on such an occasion when one evening he remembered with a start that it was time for the even- I ing service. Without stopping to ar- , range his toilet, he hurriPd to tho lec- , turc room of Plymou'h church, Brooklyn, and appeared before tlie usual , vast audience. Immediately, there was a tittoring- which grew in crescpndo to a positive roar of laughter. For, as (he great divine stood before his audience with all his majestic dignity, the audience discerned that his flowing locks had been done up in curl papers and to all appearances he had adopted the characteristic coiffure of Topsy. Momentarily, he wns non-plused at tho gale of mirth which grew louder and more persistent. Then, suddenly, placing his hand to his head, his fingers found the offending pig-tails. Someone near by hoard him say, much to himself, "That rascal Daisy," and then he joined in the general uproar. —Thrift Magazine. o WISE CLERGYMEN The Methodist clergymen of Chicago have wisely rejected a proposal to refuse to buy goods from merchants who advertise in periodicals which lean to tlie wet side of the prohibition oues'.ion. Tho boycott is a two-edirod sword without much handle and is more likely to injure those who wield it than those whom they intend to slash. The surest way to injure any cause is to persecute those who oppose it.—New York Evening Post. o Enigmatic AI Smith AI Smith, a Democrat who can't possibly win and the only Democrat who can possibly win.—Richmond Dispatch.

North Canton Residents Saw To
It That Unfortunates Elsewhere Were Made Happy—A
Great Day In Many Homes.
By common consent all mankind
paused on Sunday to celebrate in one
way or another the Christ Child's
birthday and to make an oasis of
goodwill in the -workaday routine of
the remainder of the year. The festive Christmas season was ushered in
here early Sunday morning with
church services and the singing of
carols, and the festivities were carried
on on Monday in hundreds of homes
in this territory.
Decorations were never more riotous, more elaborate. Christmas trees
brightened nearly every home, and the
glisten and tinsel were everywhere.
For the poor and needy in other
towns there were all manner of relief
agencies operating in North Canton
for nearly a week.
Assisted the Needy
* Thanks to the churches, the Community Building, fraternal organizations, missionary societies and private
individuals, Christmas cheer was
spread this year into the hearts of
needy and destitute families, and into
orphan asylums and other institutions.
Hearing the cries from Canton,
Cleveland and other places for assistance. North Canton promptly responded. Each church remembered the children in the orphanages and the fraternal orders sent/articles to cheer the
younersters. A Hoover wagon backed
un to the Community Building on
rFriday and took many articles of food
to hungry families in Canton.
