H. B. C. Canton, =at 8:30. Be sure to tune in and hear this program. DID you ever sit alone in an office and suddenly decide to call a man you esteem for his good qualities? Of course you have. The sound of his voice puts you back on earth, and you return to your work invigorated. Fortunate the man who has sueh a friend. On Monday afternoon I was feeling a "little blue," so I called up an old friend merely to say, "How do?" He replied: "Why you damn fool, 1 always feel good." Just a few cheery words, and you go back to your duties satisfied. Such is real friendship. o Introducing Mr. Ely r2SE hot days my friends 'occasionally find me in meditation, mulling over some of the politically great. It is a form of taxation, mental, and so not returnable either under state or federal laws. "My mind yesterday was on Joseph Buell Ely, former governor of Massachusetts, and a Democrat (?) of the Al Smith stripe. He is less of a show-window exhibit than the aforesaid Smith. Mr. Ely, according to the newspapers, will take to the "stump," also the radio, to tell how Magna 'Charta and the Declaration of Independence came to be created. It is a job that could easily be slapped through in a superficial'manner, but "Ex-Governor Joe will not accomplish it in that way. He is a bosom pal of former Governor Smith, and he is a good campaigner, and he knows that insincerity strides rampant in the atmosphere of politics. jit, CIVILIZATION lis 'waiting, hungrily, for Joe to begin talking. It is uh open fact that!1ie does not eat out of a dinner-pail, neither does he wear overalls and a jumper. In fact, it is very seldom that he perspires and mOps his brow with a bandana handkerchief. No one throws'apail of water-over his head at sunrise to get him out > of bed, but he'has'been found even in a hotel suite with " bath-room attached. The napkin beside his plate is quite as apt to be of linen as of paper. When Joe takes to the air all the matadors in 'Spain and Mexico will cheer because he is an adept at throwing the "bull." Yes, politics is puzzling at times, but Ely is not a puzzle. . H-e "rs -^uttr« *• trailing along- with Al to pay an old political debt and at the same time try to wreck the political party' he professed allegiance before he arid Al began playing around with the big money gents. And it will'be* well for Joe to keep in mind that some thrusts xjf 'his critics may touch the vulnerable spot known as "the heel of Achilles'."" Too bad when the - darts begin to sail in his direction. Personal vanity,.■ambition for power in and of itself, arid love of exhibition-weigh heavily in the scales with Ely. Otherwise Jhe is just—otherwise. o TheODnly Mourner A FRIEND of mine told me the other day of a strange arid touching incident, for the trfrEh -of which he says he can vouch. He is a retired clergyman. In a mining district in West Virginia lived a woman of bad reputation, whom he tried in vain to reclaim to decent ways* of* living. This poor creature—let's ..call her Nan—Siad outraged all the proprieties of the neighborhood -where she resided for many years. She was seldom sober and habitually used foul language. '.She was *. unclean in her person, too, and the wretched shack where she lived alone was more like an animal's lair than.a human habitation. i t t HE died.

ARE BUYING BONDS People In Ohio Purchasing "Babies" Offered By the Government Special to Tho Sun Washington, D. C, July 29—The state of Ohio ranks fourth in the amount of United States savings bonds purchased from April of this vear to May 1. The sum of $19,399,143 shows that the people of Ohio helped the treasury department pass the one-half billion dollar mark isince the savings bonds were first made available on March 1, 193-5. Purchases for the new fiscal year beginning the first day of this month are at an increased rate averaging a maturity value of $1,823,700 which is in excess of 80 per cent increase over the daily average Sales for the year 1935. Average daily sales in July, 1936, are approximately 75 per cent ahead of average sales for July, 1935. United States Sayings Bonds may be purchased at all .post-offices of the first and second classes, at most of the third class, aria at some of the fourth class offic6s'jor direct-by-mail from the treasurer/j of the United States, or any Federal reserve bank. The direct-by-mail, lales have likewise shown a consistent) ratio of increase during the last several months. -, United States savings bonds are sold in denominations from $25 to $1,000, maturity value. The $100, maturity value bond—$75, purchase price—is proving by far to be the most popular, especially among those who are purchasing savings bonds under the new regular purchase plan recently announced by the treasury ■department. This -£lan provides that ■upon request, the treasury department will mail a memorandum statement each week, each month, or at other regular intervals as the purchaser may elect. A United States savings bond matures exactly 10 years from its issue date for a sum one-third more than its purchase price. As The Sun Sees It Without Prejudice RAINS BRM DROUTH Moisture Will He)p Truck Farms, Gardens and Lawns One of the longest dry spells in Ohio history was broken on Thursday- evening," when this section was visited by heavy rains which fell in sheets of water heavy 'enough to stall traffic for a time. The moisture will do a great 'deril of good for the corn and potato mips, and for all growing things. Lawns and shrubbery which have been -suffering from the heat and dry .fjpell, have been .improved. The rain .was accompanied by sharp crashes .of thunder and brilliant lightning, Lhut little wind. In the Salem district a cloudburst was reported, with many cellars being- flooded in the low lying districts. However, it was a "good rain," and will put "the people in much better spirits. On Monday this section was visited by another good shower, which gave welcome. relief from the heat. at dinner on Friday: Mrs. .Elma Snyder, Mrs. C. E. Forster and daughter Marv Lou, Walter Snyder of North Canton, Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Smith and "sons Glenn Jr. and Marx of Cleveland, Mrs. Faye White of Holly- snow lay the animal, stiff and cold in ! wood, Cal., Mrs. Verna Shank of Ak- death. i ron and Mrs. Grace Graff of Canton. Shorts and Middlings The areas in the United States most severely affected by drouth on July 15 were parts of South Dakota, Wyoming, arid Montana, and parts of Kentucky and Indiana. The southwestern section of Ohio has not fared much better than the neighboring territory in the adjacent states. Reports to W. H. Palmer, state club leader, Ohio, state University, from 70 Ohio counties reveal a 4-H-club enrollment of 44,202 boys and girls. Figures from the remaining counties will increase the total. To date, Muskingum comity, with 1,153 members has the record enrollment. Franklin county has 1,102 members, and Miami county has 1,09-1.

The largest .dam will be in tlie Zaleski forest and Entertained Guests Mrs. Glenn Schiltz of McKniley The Constitution THE following sentence was printed in a New York daily newspaper one day last week. It was uttered by a man widely known as an "advisor of Big Business." "He misreads history today who does not see storm clouds gathering on our political horizon . . . The people had best labor for one more amendment to our great charter (the constitution), making it forever impossible to amend or change it again. Then it will be safe—" After reading the above sentence The Sun wonders if Big Business really hires a man so lacking in common sense that he would make a fetish of existing law, as an Ethiopian tribesman does of his necklace of teeth? The original constitution — "the greatest document struck off by human hands at a single blow"—was the result, not of a legislative love feast, but of wrangling and strife, as are. most things in human progress. It was made to serve a sparse population along the Atlantic seaboard, of less than three millions, in a day when an ox cart was considered a fast thing on wheels. It naturally enough does not fit so well an empire reaching from sea to sea, in a period when the ocean is crossed in less time than was required to go from Philadelphia to New York. The fathers sought to establish a democracy, as far as might be. Today a five to four vote in the U. S. Supreme Court makes one man's opinion the arbiter of the destinies of 125,000,000. The state of New York, with five times the population of the original states, found no insuperable difficulty in rewriting its constitution. There are those, however, who would make the Federal Constitution sacred against all change. The world moves forward, not backward. It was well into the nineteenth century before city folk began to be so well provided with facilities for bathing as were the Olynthans in 347 B. C. when Philip of Macedon sacked their town. And there were good people right here in Ohio, as elsewhere in America, who viewed the bathtub with alarm and urged that laws be passed to stop their manufacture because they believed indulgence in a daily bath would undermine the .teaman constitution.-*. .- It was still the time when persons who regarded themsetv-es as among 'the well-informed thought of night air as poisonous. The constitution was written' by men, and when four Judges believe Congress has a right to pass certain laws and five say "CNay" the Ame-rJ- can people have a -perfect right to ask questions. If this (privilege is denied them, then the penple will adopt .Abraham Lincoln's policy when he was told it was "unpimstitutional to !free the slaves." W. C. T. 0. MEETING Election of Officers On Tuesday And Program of Interest The meeting of the local W. C. T. U. will be held in the Community building on Tuesday afternoon. Mrs. S. F. "Bowman, Orchard Hill road, will give an illustrated lecture on alcohol education. Election raf officers will be in order for the day. An excellent attendance is expected, so do your part and attend this meeting. Wrong Statement SOME man on the radio a few nights ago made the statement that "extremely smart children are less likely to live to old age than those of lesser intellectual ability." Then he quoted Shakespeare, King Richard III: "So wise, so young, they say, do never live long." You have only to think of the advanced years of famous men and women to realize that the radio spouter did not know what he was talking about. Battle of Life STICK TO YOUR GUNS, GOV. MARTINI DAVEY Do Not Send a Decent Man Back To Oklahoma To Please the Vanity of a Deputy Sheriff— People of Ohio Are Applauding Your Christian Spirit.

First in Membership Patriotism post No. 470 at Coldwater, Ohio, has the honor of being the first post in the nation to reach its 1937 membership quota.

Navy Wants Men A quota of 2N young men, between the ages of 17 to 25 will be enlisted in the United States Navy from this Recruiting District during the month of August.

A fine sound equipment will be used for this picture and unless you see it you will miss a real treat. The picture is sponsored by the North Canton Hi Y and .will show the ships and sailors that the British navy loaned to tbe producers to make the film. Adult tickets are 20c and children 10c*. See it and enjoy the jokes. You will like the hiughs. THE SUN reads letters and newspapers. Some writers feel hopelessly beaten in the battle of life; others—well, let's be charitable, and say they are intensely emotional. Discouragements are deeply felt; experience is lacking, and the mind has not yet come to learn wherein the chief, values of life consist. I To all young hearts on fire with baffled yearnings The Sun would say:! "Ask yourself what you really want from life, for you are quite likely to get it if you want it hard enough." Right here in North Canton girls and boys have worked for, let us say, the Hall-Long family, or in the office of The Sun. In a friendly manner Mrs. Hall or Mr. Long would ask, "What is your ambition?" Same old story, "I don't know," or "something easy." Occasionally, a worthwhile job. What every decent man needs in order to find a sufficient measure of contentment in life is an occupation that interests him and in which he can be of service, loyal friendship, and some amount of taste and opportunity for mental culture. In these days good literature is within the reach of all. If you doubt this statement consult the North Canton public library. Mostly the trouble is that we are too easily contented with our achievements. We set our aims and our ideals too low. We climb the foothills and complacently congratulate ourselves on having scaled the mountain. And if anyone helps us in this self- deceit how we preen ourselves and purr with artificial conceit! Furthermore, what look like hindrances are often conditions of advancement. Franklin D. Roosevelt would not have been the man he is today but for an accident (infantile paralysis) that crippled him and forced him into study and thought. He has the highest position in the world. All men cannot be President of the United States; neither can they be Judges, heads of great newspapers or industrial plants, but they can give the best they have in them to give, be their limitations what they may, and life in the United States will give them a chance to show their worth. otSTaTusuaT Evan Goes Golfing and Antagonists See Him Cop Honors Same old story when Evan Schiltz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ellis B. Schiltz, ■ gets into action on the golf course.' This unassuming young man has been | making life miserable for champions, j near champions and would-be cham- j pions. Officially he is the amateur champion of Stark county. The Schiltz colors seem to carry nothing but winners. The winsome daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Schiltz proved a sensation a year ago on the links. o 4-H Girls Meet Today With Leader Plain township Girl's 4-H Clothing- Club met on Wednesday afternoon, July 22, with leader Mrs. E. E. Mark- ley." Demonstrations were given by Miss Carolyn McLinden, Miss Anna Mae Gill, Miss Bernice Bradley and Miss Catherine Fredrick. A health talk was given by Miss Zelma Wise, and a nature talk by Miss Sylvia Werstler. The next meeting will be this afternoon (Wednesday) at the home of I the leader. I IN CLEVELAND lives Carlton B.. 1 Chilton, aged 41 years, a respr-c- ted citizen and a happy husband and father. When he was 17 years of age, "Chilton and another boy, son of a clergyman, visited their teller friend one day at the Calvin (Oklahoma) national bank ... No bank employes were in sight and the boys scooped up $2000.. Chilton kept $500 . . , Chilton voluntarily gave himself up and a few days later was sentenced to the state reformatory to serve two years. A year later he escaped. All but $30 of the money he had taken has been returned to the bank." So runs the Associated Press dispatch in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. A week ago Some One learned that Mr. Chilton was a resident of Cleveland, and the Some One notified the officials of the state reformatory at Granite, Oklahoma. The deputy warden of the reformatory has issued a statement in which he declares that "If Cleveland officials don't turn Chilton over to us we'll ask Governor Marland to requisition the Governor of Ohio. Chilton must be returned to Oklahoma." When The Sun went to press at noon today (Wednesday) Governor Martin L. Davey was still waiting for additional information from Oklahoma. Yesterday he said: "The state of Oklahoma will have to present a very strong case before I'll consent to the filing of extradition papers on Carlton Chilton, whose record in the past years Cleveland police have found to be of the best." The Sun trusts that Governor Davey will stand by his words, quoted above. There is such a thing as "overdoing virtue." A deputy with a big tin star and a blackmailer known as Some One do not look good to The Sun. The Governor of Ohio has acted to date the part of a real man. He has shown the nation that he has a heart; that he believes in giving a decent man a. chance to go straight, and that, he is a true Christian, a follower of Christ. If he refuses to return Carlton B. Chilton to Oklahoma he will be applauded by all decent citizens of Ohio. The Pecksniffs and the holier-than- thou crowd don't count. They are fakes, anyhow, and at heart they are blackmailers and slanderers. Stick to your guns, Governor! THE SUN Bell Telephone Offers Touring Log Free A handy touring log for a day-by- day record of vacation trips by automobile is available without charge at the local exchange of The Ohio Bell Telephone Company. The booklet contains 24 pages, a page for each day of the trip and provides space for recording of the time of start on each day, speedometer record, gasoline record and weather notes. Ample space also is provided for noting interesting happenings by the tourist. At the front of the log is a checking list of things that should not be forgotten before starting a vacation trip. Such important questions as, "Did you turn out the lights?" "Did you bring along your automobile registration certificate?" Did you arrange for care of flowers and pets?" are asked so that the traveler will not. overlook cny details of preparation in a hasty departure. A. F. Williams, Commercial Manager of the Telephone Company, said the touring logs may be obtained either at the telephone business office, 401 Cleveland Ave. N. W., or by calling 8121 to have a copy mailed. Mason's Annual Picnic Fidelity lodge's third annual picnic will be held at the Hoover camp on Friday, July 31, afternoon and evening.
