Writer For The Sun Describes Former Soldiers, Their Nerves Shattered, Spending Sleepless Days and Nights Groping In the Dark, Physical Wrecks. A VISIT TO HOSPITALS Thoughts suggested after listening 1 to a speech delivered by the brilliant Mrs. Marie Moore of Newark, Ohio, at the annual dinner of the American Legion Auxiliary on Saturday night in the Hoover cafeteria. Legionnaires, their wives and guests filled the large dining hall. Of all the terrible results'occasioned by the World War, probably the most poignant is the case of the mental .former-soldier, former-sailor or civilian. ■/•'' No fewer than 100,000 of these men are still groping in utter or partial darkness, trying to pick up the threads of normal life which the great upheaval shattered for them. , .^Groping'In th.e Dark ,, ,Ajnd the pitiabj<hi'rig, seems to be just that there is nothing, obvious to pity* The neurasthenic has nothing to show. He and he alone knows of his sleepless nights, his nameless: terrors, and the black, hopeless outlook that confronts him. A visit to Massillon, or Chillicothe, or other state hospitals will bear out this statement. Nerves Shattered Only about a third of this army of the nerve-shattered is recognized of- ., ficially, while the majority are fighting a lone battle with present-day conditions in which they are bound to come off second-best. They cannot compete in the industrial world. Employers will not risk taking them on. ' Over 6,000 of these unfortunates are in lunatic asylums, many of them with little hope of ever coming out, and another 32,000 are officially recognized as belonging to the mentally disabled class—disabled, that is entirely through war service. This leaves many more thousands 1 to the care of-the only organizations that want to help—The American Legion and The Legion Auxiliary. • [Continued 'orr* page six] N. C.

But I am in favor of the union of church and statesmen.—Bishop Joseph F. Berry. The above is a good likeness of Dwight E. Harsh in charge of boys' wpric.hii.the [Community.;BuiId}ng. He is a,-.qle$h-cut; young man, and the lads around the big building will tell ypii- that he is "a regular fellow." ,7,', Certain it is that he gets them io do a number of things which in time will prove valuable to them, and equally certain' is the statement that he is making good as their director. Born In Minerva Dwight E. Harsh was born in Minerva 26 years ago. After attending the grade school and graduating from the high school in that town he attended Otterbein college and Kent State. v' ' He taught in Minerva Junior high school for two years and left there to become principal of Avondale school where he remained for two years. Gives Briner Credit Club work for boys appealed strongly to Mr. Harsh, and after he became acquainted with O. W. Briner, secretary of county Y. M. C. A. work, his friends knew that it was merely a question of'time before he would become a leader of boys. Dui-ing the years he resided in-Minerva, Mr. Harsh was a charter member' of five different clubs Mr. -.Briner ■ had organized, and he acted as leader of a younger boys' group. Mr. Harsh is not married, and his close friends declare he is so devoted to his work that he has not given matrimony , serious consideration. Time, however, will tell how much his close, fri ends know along that line. Talks To a Sun. Writer This writer for The Sun told Mr. Harsh yesterday that this newspaper was going to publish his'picture, and he was expected to say something. "Do editors submit to interviews?" he asked. "Forget that job you had as editor of the Eureka News last week on the Community Building stage in the American Legion play and tell the readers of The Sun something about yourself and your work," said the The Suh nian. "Well," said Dwight, "Mr. Briner often spoke to me about entering Y. M. C. A. work, and he encouraged me j to accept the position I now hold. In- teresting boys in the Community Building program has been very en-1 joyable. The way they have accept-1 ed the different clubs and have taken i part in group activities is most en-! couraging. I "The good attendance at Boy Scout. Hi-Y, Aircraft, Handicraft, Torchi Junior, Prep and Stamp meetings, and the responsibilities the boys shoulder show that a'large percentage of them in this community are building character. -' "Because of a small town and many different clubs, it is possible for a boy to be a.member in a number of groups. I wish to urge each boy to select a well-balanced program of activity and to concentrate his efforts upon a few things rather than to scatter a large number of weak attempts to do something- in many groups. "I can assure the citizens of North Canton that-it is a pleasure to associate with their boys, and I certainly appreciate the opportunity," said Mr. Harsh. The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. John Moye of North Canton were shocked on Sunday evening when it became known that their son, William John Moye, aged 25 years, of Los Angeles, California, had been killed near that city on Sunday morning by an . automobile while walking on the street. No further, particulars are known. The body of Mr. Moye will be interred in Los Angeles, after his father arrives in that city. Mr. Moye, Sr.fleft for California on Tuesday afternoon. North Canton American Legion Post gave John Moye ah American flag which will be used in the military fune'ril'pf liis.son in California. i !^;SurvWed^y Wife and Child William J. Moye is survived by his wife Jewel; a .son,;, William, aged eight months; his parents, ;and a brother, Harold, Jr., who, is-in the east. William was for some time in the United States navy as a radio worker and had recently passed with honors a! government examination in a class of 200. He and seven others were the only successful entrants. Planned To Come East ,He had planned to secure a position in this section of Ohio in the U. S. airway service so as to be near his parents. William was a fine, manly chap, and in his untimely death his wife, parents and brother have the sincere sympathy of a large number of persons.

J.; two uncles, L. A. and F. M. Roach of Canton. Arrangements for the funeral were not made when The Sun went to press. Mi-. Rutter was widely and most favorably known, and those who knew him best were his most sincere admirers. He was a Shriner and a 32nd degree Mason, and was extremely active in the Federation of Bible Classes, being treasurer of that body. He was a member of Deuber Avenue M. E. church. y D. F. Rutter was a friend to all. His moral character was high, and it can be truthfully said of him that he was a Christian gentleman in the full meaning of the word. Telling of the Activities of North Canton American Legion Post No. 419 and of the Legion Auxiliary The regular meeting of North Canton Post, American Legion, was held in the Legion room last Wednesday night. Regular business was conducted and then special honor was paid to the past commanders. A discussion of the play and its pro "duetion with a vote of thanks to those who gave much time to making it a success was closed with Frank Stov ei's lepoit on the ticket sale. Not all tickets have been returned and money "handed in so that a complete report ■was impossible. Legionnaires who have tickets should make their reports to Fiank Stover soon. Play After Easter It w.is decided to stage a mystery play after Easier. Plans for this will be -Oimulated soon, and announcements made later as to the' date and name of play. -. ,« Membership Growing >Y,Commander Curry announced that tVe Posfc is headed for a'membership t °fc;158nn order to have the colors ' dewatfcd for 25 per cent.

Both the State and National officers urge ex-service men to join the American Legion now. Their influence in membership is needed and if interested in the adjusted compensation legislation, there Is no way in which they can help more. Suh-District Meeting The tenth sub-district meeting will be held in Steubenville March 1st. The general meeting will be in the afternoon.and the forenoon will be devoted to departmental work and committee discussions. Scouts Need Colors Scout Officer, Frank Stover, reported that the new Scout Troop formed in North, Canton, would need colors. A motion wfls passed to the effect that -.i?VV7\v,_ 7 -' a national flag and a troop flag be presented to this newly organized Scout Troop. It was also decided to have an experience meeting soon to which all Boy Scouts would be invited. A similar meeting was held several years past and it proved'to be both interesting and entertaining. ; Post History j The Post history was well reviewed during the part of the meeting devoted to the Past Commanders. T. G. Denton, historian, had explained all the minutes of past meetings and selected the interesting and important events that occurred during- tlie administration Of each past commander. This was illuminating' to the newer members and recalled some almost- for-gotten' experiences to those who have been in the Post since its founding. Each of the past commanders gave blief talks, reminiscing and prophesying. All .emphasized the value i>f Legion membership. > > [Continued^ on back page] -' s ..'?"'■ "• * , / ' HUMMEL STORE Awarded Honors For Neatness nnd Cleanliness At I. G. A. District Meeting.

The policy of The Sun is to hand a choice bouquet of flowers to a man j while he is living, and not wait until he is saturated with embalming fluid ! to tell the community what a fine fel- j low he was. j This week we are giving Ray; Evans—widely. known as "Peg"—a ' handful of roses. He celebrated his j birthday anniversary, on Friday, Feb., 20, and his gracious wife prepared a ; neat "valentine dinner" for her husband and a few friends. So much for that. Now a; line or, two, or maybe three, for "Peg." Played Professional Baseball , For years he played professional' :baseball in the big cities, and he was | considered "an excellent player and a [ clean one." .Teams he was with op-i liosed the best players in, the profession, and many games were close and exciting; yet not one line was ever written in disparagement of Ray Evans as player, captain or manager. Baseball writers recognized in him a level-headed, clean-cut sportsman, and today it is safe to say that in many newspaper offices "Peg" Evans is still regarded by former reporters (now editors) as one of the most gentlemanly fellows they ever saw on the diamond. Back To North Canton After leaving the Big Show,- Ray returned to North Canton and managed a nine financed. by The Hoover company,, not as a money-making scheme, but for the sole purpose of giving the fans enjoyment. That was a great club. Several players were brought to North Canton by "Peg," notably Bucky Harris, years later manager of the Washington club, and now manager of the Detroit team. It was on the advice of Evans that Harris left •North Canton and went to Syracuse. He's a Square Shooter A square shooter, a good sport, reliable as the tides; a modest, unassuming man, who realized his sense of responsibility and leadership on the baseball field and played the game without blufl" or bluster. A good loser, taking circcumstances as they turned up with a splendid spirit.. A sane and calming influence on his fellow players. Such in truth was Ray Evans in his baseball days. May He Live Long Here's to liim today as he jogs along -toward another milestone. A distinctly companipnable chap! taking an active part in the a/fairs of the world and doing it always on the level. A good sport, ladies and gentlemen—long life to him—Ray Evans! Legionnaires Enjoy Hospitality and Hear Mrs. Mary Briggs Whistle Solos, Accompanied By Miss Margaret L. Williams, Pianist, At Annual Party. JUDGE HARTER GIVES WASHINGTON'S RULES MRS. LEE MOORE, SPEAKER Tells Fellow Rotarians That the Father of His Country Determined In Early Life To Be Master of Himself and Succeeded In His Resolution. The annual party of the Legion Auxiliary on Saturday night to which the Legionnaires and a few outside friends were invited was the outstanding social affair of the year 1931 so far, and any other organization will have to shoot at a high mark to reach it. Boss Hoover, asked the blessing. Every moment was enjoyed, and the large Hoover cafeteria was comfortably filled. The meal was all that could be desired and dancing was indulged in after the speaking, i The decorations were in keeping with Washington's natal day, and little hatchets were fastened to small baskets containing mints. Mrs. Harry Wise Presides Always an interesting speaker and a young woman of sound judgment, Mrs. Harry D. Wise, president of the North Canton American Legion Auxiliary, presided at the banquet and she welcomed the families and guests and introduced the speakers in her usual capable manner. She declared the Auxiliary owed its existence because of the American Legion, and she was proud to say that both organizations display a spirit of co-operation when it comes to the welfare of the sick, the widows and orphans—victims of the World War. Presented With Bouquets So well did she perform her duties that Mrs. Lester F. Swearengin, equally renowned as a convention speaker and an adept, with the gavel, presented a bouquet of beautiful flowers to Mrs. Wise as well as to Mrs. Mary Briggs, president of the Canton Unit; Miss Margaret L. Williams of Canton; Mrs. Johns of Massillon, and Mrs. Marie Moore of Newark. Later in the evening Mrs. Homer H. Sloan graciously presented a carnation to the guests which included W. H. [Continued on page five] DEVOTED TO THE PUBLIC The Rotary club of North Canton had the pleasure of hearing Judge Henry W. Harter, Jr., of Canton analyze "The Father of His Country" George Washington on Thursday night. The judge is a member of the Canton Rotary club. Before the Judge spoke, Ervin Royer was honored by having a birthday cake cut in remembrance of his natal day and Miss June Botham of the high school read Washington's farewell address to the American people. W. J. Evans loaned the club a large portrait of Washington, and this, with the masterful address of Judge Harter gave the evening a colorful setting. Address On Washington A close student of American history, Judge Harter had no trouble in tracing the young George from the paternal homestead on the banks of the Rappahannock to his retirement at Mount Vernon. He touched upon Parson Weems' story of Washington and the cherry tree, and while he did not accept it as an authentic document, he intimated that it was of slight importance compared to after events in the life of Washington. His Rules of Conduct The rules of conduct Washington laid down for himself when a young- man and followed to the letter as he advanced in years were responsible for his success, said the judge. They were hard rules, and it proved his mettle as a man that he lived up to them. Although an aristocrat, said Judge Harter, his simplicity, his pervading integrity, his dignity and his devoted service in the public cause, made him the outstanding figure of his time.
