QUEEN GRACIOUS TO GIRL Tomorrow the Belgians svill bury their beloved king, Albeit I, svho met his death on Saturday svhile climbing a mountain. America admired King Albert for his democratic manner and also his wife, Queen Elizabeth.

King Admired Ohio King Albert admired Ohioans. To quote his osvn words, "They are in every svay first-class fighting men." He was speaking about the 37th division, svhich contained several young- men from North Canton, among them being Otto Hoffman, Guy Price, Arthur Kolp, Howard Zengler, Dayton Schrantz and Adam Demusey. For more than a svsek before the armistice was signed the men of the 37th kept pushing back the Germans and they were the first American soldiers to enter Belgium. After the armistice a company from the 37th was selected to escort King Albert and his queen into Brussels. "The History of the 37th Division" contains a vivid description of the triumphal entry of their majesties into the capital of Belgium. The Cleveland Plain Dealer on Monday carried the follosving article: Ohioans Praised By King The frontispiece of Volume 2 of the history of the 37th Division shows a picture of the fighting king—Albert of the Belgians—and a photostatic copy of a letter which King Albert addressed to Maj. Gen. Charles S. Famssvorth, commander of the 37th Division, in 1921. The letter, written in English in the King's meticulous hand, read: "Dear Gen. Famssvorth: '•'Hearing that a history of the 37th American Division is in course of preparation, I desire to make of record in that history my appreciation of the gallant conduct of that organization in Belgium.

ROTARY CLUB The North Canton Rotary club celebrated the 29th anniversary of Rotary svith a 1.00% attendance of the members. The anniversary program svas in charge of Highfield Johnson, chairman of the Club Service commit tee. "Rotary began," staled Mr. John son, "in Chicago, February 23, 1905, svith one man, Paul P. Harris, a lawyer, ss'ho found himself a lonely stranger in a large city. Mr. Harris decided to, and did, found a club wherein the members might not only become acquainted svith each other, but also devise means of making themselves proficient in service tosvard their fellowmen and at the same time more useful to the community in general. "Into this club he decided to invite no other lawyers, but on the contrary to surround himself with men, each one engaged in a different profession or business. . This basis of membership still exists in Rotary." After giving a short history of Rotary International the chairman called upon past president, J. Frank Gross, to give the club the statistical side of Rotary through these years. Mr. Gross traced the growth of Rotary from its inception to the present time. Nosv there are approximately os-er 3,700 clubs svith a membership of more than 147,000 located in more than fifty countries throughout the world. Lee T. Lesvis, immediate past president of the local club was then asked by the chairman to give a summary of the aims and objects of Rotary International. Roy M. Harpold, president, ss'as then called upon to present the accomplishments and activities of tiie local club during the five years of its organization. In closing the president held out visions of bigger and better things for the club to strive for in the fu- tu re. The program svas greatly appreciated by the members for it does one's heart good to pause nosv and then to look back over the past to see the mile-stones svhich he lias passed. On this occasion the club appreciated the message of good svill and fellowship sent by Dr. E. P. Wise, honorary member of the organization, who is sojourning in Detroit. Upon the invitation of the Louisville club it was decided to enter an attendance contest svith clubs_ from Waynesburg, Minerva and Louisville. The details and plans of this contest svere referred to the fellowship committee of which Charles Schafer is chairman. ' William Hart and Jack Pull', high school seniors, svere guests of the club. There svill be no meeting on Thursday night as the regular meeting date falls on a national holiday. o W. B. A. Quilting The W. B. A. fancy svork club is holding an all slay quilting- svitli Mrs. Shoemaker of north of North Canton today (Wednesday). The hostess svill serve dinner at noon. Washington, D. C, Feb. 21—(Spe cial)—A transcontinental highway, 100 feet svide, from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans, with no grade crossings, is advocated by T. E. Steiner of the Bauer Manufacturing company, of Wooster, as a means of speeding up traffic and at the same time providing svork for idle millions. Steiner explained his viesvs in Washington svhere he stopped on his way back from coal fields he operates in the state of West Virginia. Being a solid and substantial business man, his plan svas»listen- ed to with interest in official circles in Washington. Steiner svould make the highway self-liquidating by charging- tolls both for freight and passenger automobiles. He svould have the government purchase a strip of land svide enough so that it could lease sites along thc svay for gasoline stations, restaurants, etc. The highway svould be lighted svith electric current from Muscle Shoals. He estimates that California instead of being an eight-day trip by automobile from Wooster, could lie reached in four days. Instead of resorting to CWA svork projects which lie says often are nol of permanent value, Steiner svould tuin the svhole army of unemployed onto this highway project. He points out that a score or more of connecting highways north and south from the main supcr-highsvays svould be constructed to connect large cities. The Bauer Manufacturing company, according to Mr. Steiner, has sliosvn a four per cent increase in business in December and January over the comparative months of last year, and he is expecting a larger increase in the forthcoming months. Against Carpel hag gers A carpetbagger government for the island of Hawaii, by giving permission to appoint a man as governor svho svas not a resident of the island, brought a dissenting vote from me in tbe special session of the House of Representatives last Spring. The Senate refused to ssvallosv the undemocratic proposal. The svhole trouble, has been solved by the recent appointment of Judge Joseph 13. Poindexter as governor. Judge Poindexter is a native of Honolulu svho formerly was U. S. district judge in the island, and apparently a man of high ability. This vindicates the principle of home rule. Petition 50 Feet High A protest and petition, fifty feet high, the largest petition in the history of the American Congress, has been presented lo th" House of Representatives by the follosvers of Judge Rutherford,'of the Watch Tower Bible' and Tract Society, ss-ho claim there is a plan on foot lo drive Rutherford off the air svith his religious discussions. The grand total of signatures svas 2,416,141. In the call of the slates Ohio took the lead ,with 2139,579 names. The sixteenth congressional district sent to me a bundle of petitions a foot high. All the petitions were gathered in Brooklyn and sent in 35 closely-packed cartons to Washington, the shipment weighing 1,247 pounds. ^■The petition reads in part: "The message of the true God, Jehovah, as expressed by Him in the prophecies of His Word and as nosv being given to the people of this nation by Judge Rutherford and others of Jehos-ah's witnesses, is of interest to us. When broadcast, it is convenient, for us to hear it in our homes and is necessary for our welfare. We are entitled to hear and desire to hear that message. We disapprove of every attempt to prevent our hearing it broadcast." Extensive hearings on radio control svill shortly be held by Congress at svhich the grievances of the petitioners svill be heard. Should a poker player svho had been chucked in jail and paid a fine be appointed postmaster of Statesboro, Georgia? The august United States Senate is svrestling over this question svhile Representative Parker of Georgia, member of Congress, ss'ho recommended the candidate, is on the anx- weeping Age A SUN EDITORIAL SIDENT ROOSEVELT has done | uals that the greatest HRES I a number of outstanding things for the benefit of humanity since he entered the White House. He has confidence in young men, but he does not believe that a man ought to be shelved because he has reached the age of GO years. Many of his ablest advisers are men in their 50's and GO'S. For years bluff, bluster and dollars dominated the American people. Wall Street sharpers svith hands on the throats of vast industrial plants spread the propaganda that men past the age of 50 or GO had served their uscfulness and should slop aside for younger blood. X :|: X THEN came the Nesv Deal. The President reminded certain individ our trials pioneers svho ss-ere visited upon the opened up a wilderness and made of this broad land a paradise on earth. Age was not decried then—it svas respected and looked up to. In the days ss-heii ox wagons blazed trails across the continent, carrying the families and earthly possessions of pioneers in search of nesv homes, the men who headed those creeping processions svere mainly of advanced years. They gas-e the orders, the younger men obeyed them, and the wisdom of those orders is seen today in every state. Age ss-as as virile then as youth of today. We doubt if any greater mistake could be made than lo retire the experience anil judgment of age to the background, yet that svas the tendency of today until President Roosevelt spoke.
