NORTH CANTON-STARK COUNTY, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28, 1931. 2.00 PER YEAR, B. B. BECK DENOUNCES BOOZE PEDDLERS AND THEIR BONDSMEN Clerl^. of the Courts of Stark County In Eloquent Address To^Men of Zion Reformed Church and Their Guests Declares "I'd Hate To See My Country Engaged In the Liquor Business." TELLS OF DIVORCE EVIL TMWithottt Varnish Urias Ream Is Gone But His Memory Lives. , By BEN LONG 0 In tinging tones, B. B. Beck, clerk of courts of Stark county, denounced bootlegging, hasty marriage, divorce and, crime generally before the members, of the Men's Junior class and their guest's at their annual dinner in thti large dining hall of Zion Reformed 'church/on Friday night. ' Mr. Beck was in fine voice and in masterful manner he hammered the evils the country/is suffering, from to- dai\ He was introduced by President Oliver. Horton, and he labeled his address "The Challenge of the Church.", Praises Boss Hoover Before fii$>_ his big guns, Mr. Beck praised Boss Hoover for what he has done and is doing for humanity. "He .is a real man, a real Christian, who labors day in and day out to make the entire world a better place. May his days be. lengthened to carry on his preat work," he said. \ Problems of the Home Then he plunged,into the problems of the broken home. According to his figures there vitere 835 divorces.granted last year in Stark county, placing this county next to Franklin, which had the highest number in the state. "Think of it! More than 1600 persons separated by process of law! Then think of the many children forced to suifer because their parents have parted. As a result of the divorce evil these children become wards of the state. There is a challenge here, and my friends, the church must meet that-challenge. We have to do something to curb this growing menace to society. It is much easier for children to go wrong if homes are brok en. Children of Aliens "The -problem of th,e alien's chil " dren^ 1 ace's us on'every hand.

The majority of these boys were influenced "by had leaders, one of the latter being a paroled prisoner from Massillon." THr. Beck went on to say that one Jvay to eliminate crime is for parents to 'become pals of their children. "Let them say 'Come to church,' instead of running off to the golf links or the. bridge club and permitting their children to shift for themselves. Let them iget a little hit nearer, a little bit dearer to their boys aiid girls." The Divorce, Evil Discussing the divorce evil, Mr. Beck said that he would send parents to an. Arbitration Court to talk things over with a Judge, and see if a reconciliation (could not he .effected. If husband and wife could not agree, ancl insisted on a divorce, then he would make them -wait at. least sixty days before either would be permitted to many. "As it is at present," he said, "people get a divorce ancl ten minu- N FRIDAY a young man called at The Sun office and said: "Urias Ream would like to say goodbye to Ben Long." Of course I went over to see him. On Sunday afternoon a telephone message informed me that Mr. Ream had, gone to his friends in the Great Beyond. That simple message: "Urias Ream would like to say goodbye to Ben ■Long" had the true Urias Ream flavor. Few men could say it so neatly. But knowing Mr. Ream favorably for more than eight years. I understood his feelings. The files of The Sun contain many articles from the pen of Urias Ream and interesting lines they are, too! He wrote about the early days in North Canton; of the pranks of the young fellows; the development of the town; and occasionally he would become whimsical and take a crack at present day foibles. But his gentle humor never permitted him to take a wallop at them. His style was to chuckle, never to guff-haw. There was no bitterness in the man. t .* ■ * HIS articles were widely copied, especially those dealing with gem eral subjects. He was an adept at spelling, and his grammar would never arouse the ire of Ambrose Bierce. For years he attended to the notary work in The Sun office. In the early days, of this newspaper many communications were received from persons Who were strangers,to the .editors. . It is the "easiest thing in the world to get in wrong with the public," and careful editors, until they become personally acquainted with their towns, make it a rule to consult some person in whose, integrity they have implicit confidence. Urias Ream never gave what newspaper writers call "a false steer," and as a result of his sage advice several letters were thrown into the waste paper basket. Personal feelings were never permitted to enter Into his statements. He was open-minded, fair and candid. THIS. Wednesday morning they buried him in St. Paul's cemetery beside his wife in ground he had played on as a boy. Stricken without warning, he realized his condition was desperate, but he faced the end with that courage and quiet resolution which marked his character. This Tare old soul was proud of North Canton. He had seen it grow from a small hamlet to one of the most modern towns fn Ohio. The naming of the street in which he lived and died to Ream street hy Council a few months ago pleased liim greatly. "It is an excellent thing to keep the names of pioneers green in the public mind," he said-to this writer, '"and I trust (Council -will lceep up the .good work.'" X t 't . URIAS REAM BURIED IN ST. PAUL'S TODAY Aged and Respected Resident of North Canton Laid To Rest Beside His Wife Who Preceded Him Months Ago—Same Pall-bearers. HIS AGE WAS 79 YEARS D On the Run io CCopyrlgM, W. X. O.) Requiem mass was said this Wednesday morning at 9:00 o'clock in St. Paul's church, jthe Rev. Father Kotheimer officiating, for Urias Hamilton Ream, aged 79 years on Dec. 14, 1930, who died in his home on Ream street on Sunday afternoon, after an illness of one week. Interment was made in St. Paul's cemetery beside the bo.dy of Mr. Ream's wife, who died on August 4, 1930. The pall-bearers were, with the exception of Mr. Cashner, the same men who bore the casket containing Mrs. Ream's body. They were: Henry Marchand, John Herd- inger, Albert Kolp, Charles Saylor, Frank Ray, Alfred Cashner. L. T. Lewis had charge of the funeral arrangements. Born In Jackson Township Urias H. Ream was born in Jackson township near McDonaldsville. When he was seven years of age his parents moved, into, the house on North Main street now ■ occupied by Mrs. Suffecool. Urias attended the public school in New Berlin (now North Canton) and in later years learned'the business of gunsmith and millwright with his father who was in business here. ■Years later Urias Ream conducted a hardware store on the Square for 20 years. Then he retired, although he did work as a notary public ancl dabbled a little in real estate, "just to keep my mind active," lie would say with a quiet laugh. Married 57 Years Ago Fifty-seven years ago on Feb. 10, he took his bride Miss Louise Pierson of this neighborhood in St. Joseph's church, Canton. Two children were born to them, Edward and "Charlotte (Mrs. Thomas Sheetz). Years ago Mr. and Mrs. Ream pdopted Charlotte Pierson [ - (Mrs. Adney Ream) with whom Urias I and his wife lived until they passed j GIVE THE LADS A CHANCE away.

As usual, the long tables were filled and the best of fellowship prevailed. Earl Greenho acted as song leader and Miss Leota LeBeau was at the piano. The Rev. Melvin E, Beck had charge of the religious services. Mrs. C. H. Herbert, Reader The men were entertained by Mrs. C. H. Herbert of the Dueber avenue M. E. church, Canton, a reader of' ability. She told the story of a farmer's wife of the old clays learning to skate, and her rendition of the- trials and tribulations of the lady on the ice brought a number of laughs.. Dr. Frederick, a veterinarian of Canton, told a few funny stories and: also invited the class to meet with the Men's Bible class of Trinity Reformed church of which he is president. Old and New Presidents Oliver Horton, who presided, said: he was retiring as president of the class. He thanked the members for the "whole-hearted support accorded me during my term of office," and he pledged "loyal support to the new president, William Gillespie." in reply, Mr. Gillespie said he had : no apologies to offer for "becomings i president of this class.
