"Impossible Things" IF ANYONE is looking for "inspirational literature" to use in leaflets for Sunday-school children, here is ideal material. The author, Elizabeth Lowell Everett, is filled with that grim cheer and icy earnestness that are conventionally associated with Christian fortitude. Her idea seems to be that this is not such a good world; it is very hard to get along here. o When They Were Slaves A FRIEND mailed me last week from Salem county, New Jersey, a picture postal card showing a small two-story brick glass factory. Under the picture is written: "Established by Caspar Wistar in 1739, founder of the glass industry in America." I am anything but an iconoclast; in fact I have much reverence for old institutions, but having visited upon several occasions Salem, G'assboro, Bridgeton, Millville, Woodbury and other towns where they manufacture glass of every description I am compelled to say that the first glass made in America was produced at Jamestown, Virginia, in .1609. Other factories were in operation in New York and Philadelphia • during the last part of the seventeenth century and the early eighteenth. Caspar Wistar did set up his factory in Salem county, New Jersey, and he is generally regarded as the founder of the industry in America. "Wistar- burg," as his ware was called, was light green in color, crude and heavy. Many families whose ancestors came to America before the Revolution and settled in New Jersey and Philadelphia have glass-ware made by Wistar. tit EMPLOYES of glass factories until about 35 years ago had a hard time to exist, and in many instances they were more or less slaves. Considering that they were mostly American born of English-speaking parents it was astonishing that they labored under such conditions. In certain towns in New Jersey the glass company owned a "general store" in which everything was sold from shoes to hats. It was Cheap John stull', and money as we know it, was never seen. The glass-blower received script and this he or his wife took to the store. The change consisted of brass checks. Many of the men were compelled to buy patent-leather shoes, and in a glass factory in those days the shoes were a wreck within a week. INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC N. C. SCHOOL FEATURE P. W. Taylor Will Teach Small Classes of From Two To Five In Both High" and Grade— First Time Sueh a Plan Has Been Tried In This Town. SCHOOLS OPEN SEPT. 14 The public schools will open in North Canton on Monday, September 14. This is later than usual, but it will conform with the opening of schools throughout the county. The teachers will all be on hand the latter part of this week. A list of teachers appeared in The Sun several weeks ago. Mr. Nagel and Miss Morrison have been employed to fill the vacancies caused by the resignation of Mr. Walker and Miss Schott. To Teach Instrumental Music P. W. Taylor has been employed to teach instrumental music. Small classes of from two to five will be organized in various instruments according to the demand. This work will be available to both grade school and high school pupils. Work on this plan has not been undertaken in North Canton before. It however is being offered in several schools of the county. Opportunity will he given to parents and pupils for a conference with Mr. Taylor. ST.

"They are in splendid physical condition and every comfort is theirs. Their dad is raking in the money signing his name on picture cards. About 10,000 persons were there on Labor day," said Carl. FAHMJS-MIC Shidler Local Invites All Tillers of the Soil To Attend, Sept. 12. All farmers and their families are invited to attend the picnic of The Farmers' Union at Lake-O-Springs on Saturday, September 12. Good speakers and a good time assured all. This is the movement that is going to get you somewhere, be alive to a real opportunity farmers, antl show your interest in same with your heart cooperation. Did you see the fine exhibit of Shidler Local No. 97, Farmers' Union, at the Stark county fair? Many new members are joining this live local every meeting. Their next regular meeting* will be on September 11 in Shidler school house, Canton- Shepler Church road. All come. A. B. FULLER, Navarre.

That it will merit the confidence of the taxpayers as well as the blind and the mothers of dependent youngsters will not be questioned. A glance at the names of those empowered to administer the law is sufTcient to convince even the most captious spirits that no favoritism will be shown in dispensing relief to those in need. As chairman of the Stark County Board of Public Assistance stands Judge Thomas H. Leahy of the Court of Domestic Relations, a man of the highest personal character and a lawyer of outstanding ability and probity; Mrs. W. G. Saxton, secretary; Fred W. Witter, chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, and Clayton Hoffman, a well known attorney of Canton. The above names belong to persons who have devoted years of service, in a quiet way, without financial reward, to their fellow citizens in less fortunate circumstances than themselves. So it is reasonable to assume that in a much wider field their endeavors in behalf of suffering humanity will be crowned with success. That such a committee should carefully scrutinize the records of nil persons engaged as supervisor, case workers, blind relief investigator, and receiving clerk and stenographer, was to be expected. Merit, and merit alone, is the reason Marie F. Neldin- ger is case work supervisor; Eva J. Hartford and Ruth Albert, case workers for dependent children; Richard Fortney, blind relief investigator; Alberta Gilbert, receiving clerk and stenographer. Miss Neldenger, supervisor, holds a master's degree from* Columbia university, and for several years has specialized in social welfare training. Her recommendations are of the high Roosevelt's Policies ALL mankind may be divided roughly into two classes, those who think of what is expedient and those who think of what is right. There are those who think of how every situation is going to affect their personal fortunes, and bend their sails to catch every favorable wind. And there are those who will always think of what right demands, in scorn of consequence. With evidence of the political opportunism that is so prevalent it is stirring to find a man like Franklin D. Roosevelt who is willing, if need be, to sacrifice his political future for the sake of his duty to his country. What a chance for tomorrow tlie world would have if every man wero mastered by the same ideal—he that commits his life to a definite cause of action and persists it.in the face of personal loss. Indecision can have no place in such a life. There is here an unalterable principle that must be the determining factor in _ every question of life. A change in environment, with the consequent acquaintance with new standards and the intrusion of new factors may leave one perpetually undecided as to what is right. Happy the one who has committed his life to a certain ideal of right, and who will walk alone if necessary to maintain that ideal. We need something of the heroic quality of President Roosevelt in our lives if we are to do worthwhile things. Thus it is The Sun prefers to string along with Roosevelt for several reasons, one of which is that not only did he pull this nation out of the gutter but he has been man enough to take foul abuse without a whimper from fellows his policies saved from bankruptcy, and in several instances, suicide. FOOTBALL SQUAD TO FACE COVENTRY TWP. Coach Ray Swope, Assisted By Jordan of Painesville, Will Test Ability of North Canton High In Opening Game Here On Saturday, September 19. CONTEST STARTS AT 2:00 Fake Patriots IXLERS MOVE Of THOUGH Philadelphia, Pa., was not many miles distant many of the sons and daughters of glass- blowers had never visited the big ! town. It was pitiful to hear them say "Some day I'm going up to the cit.\. It must be a wonderful place." In those days members of both following: Case work supervisor,, . Marie F. Neldenger; Eva J.

Civil service examinations for provisional appointees will be held this month. The members of the board exercised the greatest care in selecting the personnel, intelligence, industry, .ability and politeness being the requisites for the positions. READ20BQ0XS .Dorothy Kolp Is Leading In ..Contest Staged By N. C. Library "Time marches on" at the North Canton Library and the summer projects are being finished in preparation for the special work which always comes with the opening of school. .Fifty pupils signed up feu* the ".summer reading course" for grade pupils .and about half have finished the required ten books, making them eligible to compete in the story-writing contest. Several stories have already been handed in and the rest are due .next week. Dorothy Kolp leads the group, having .read twenty books during .July and August. Several others are on record as having completed nearly that number. In all more than 350 books were read by this group during the summer. Winners of the contest will be announced later in The Sun. ted, as today, by the people. Women, as is well known, had no .vote. A man named Carpenter resided in Woodbury. He ran for the lower branch of the legislature and one of the planks in his platform read that glass-blowers "must be paid in United States currency." Carpenter was denounced as a "crazy radical," a "destroyer of business," and an "enemy of mankind." He was elected and re-elected. He was popular with newspaper mem, and they gave him .a -"break." The New York World,' then owned by Joseph Pulitzer, sent reporters into the glass districts, and in self-defense, several Philadelphia daily newspapers had to do the same. Conditions were deplorable and such :a howl went up after people read the articles that the legislature passed Carpenter's bill and the governor signed it. Thus ended the slavery .of the glass-blowers in New Jersey- Carpenter, by the way, later ran for the legislature, but hundreds of the men he had assisted across the "bridge from slavedom to decency voted Melvin Is Now .Superintendent Schools In- Loiiisville Melvin R. Bixler, for a number of years the popular principal of North Canton high . school, left this week with his wife and children for Louisville, Stark county, where he has assumed his duties as superintendent of the public schools in that old and aristocratic town.

Will : guard tha interests of a portion .of the population too long pushed from pillar to post because few persons really cared what became of them. ANCIENT limes outraged honor was the dominant factor in some : North Canton high school football practice is now in full swing. Coach Ray Swope returned last week from Ohio State after twelve weeks of intensive study and practice on various phases of physical education, among them football. Mr. Jordon of Painesville, a Kent State man, is assisting him. Forty boys desirous of making- places on the team reported for practice. Coach Swope says he would like to keep every man out the whole season if possible. Good 1938 Material While some boys may not get to participate this season, since several ol* them are very small, the practice this year will make them available for tbe team next year. However there are always games on a schedule where at some time of play even the smallest may be used. Swope's idea is to have a man available for any emergency. Game Here Sept. 19 The team starts the schedule with Coventry Township here on Saturday, September 19. The game is called for 2:00 o'clock. The school is asking the support of the community at the games this season. While finance is not the purpose of high school athletics, they can not be maintained without gate receipts. See that you get your ticket. You will see a good game whether the team wins or loses. Tlie boys have made up their minds to Ibis even before the schedule begins. Games Scheduled The schedule is as follows: Sept. HI, Coventry Twp. here; Sept. 20 at Navarre. Oct. 3, at Canal Fulton; Oct. 10, Louisville here; Jackson Twp. here (date to be announced); Oct. 30, at Springfield Twp. Nov. fi, at Middlel,ranch; Nov. 11, a< Brewster; Nov. 21, Minerva here.

Nearly One Million Persons Have Boarded Sensation of 1936 Readers of The Sun have an opportunity, thanks to the Schafer & Messerly drug store, North Canton, to visit without cost in Cleveland on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 24 and 25, the nationally renowned "Rexall Train," the world's first convention train, with a record of having made a 29,000-mile tour through the United States and Canada. Nearly one million persons have inspected the exhibits aboard this 12- car train and its specially built 350- ton locomotive. Conceived by the United Drug company to hold conventions of Rexall druggists in 109 cities and towns in every state in the Union and Canada, the train has proved the sensation of 1936 and everywhere it stops hundreds, in several instances, thousands, of people have visited it. "It is tlie .most remarkable train in the world. There is nothing like it .anywhere," said Charles Schafer to a writer for The Sun, "and I would like people to go through it. To assure the public a cordial reception on the train we are offering to visitors to our store a limited number of tickets. It Iirst served, people may .never see .again, and I trust they will take advantage of our offer," said Mr. Schafer.

Wherever this seed has been put in the ground, the wheat- grass has consistently outyielded and outlived the other types of grass. Everywhere you go landowners are talking about crested wheatgrass, and its use, I dare say, will be generally resorted to over the whole area of the drought section.

The reason given was that in the fall there tire heavy rains, followed by freezing of the ground; thereafter when the snow falls in great quantities it cannot melt into the ground on account of its frozen condition and it flows away into the "Missouri River. U. S. Army engineers are now investigating the river, hoping that a system of dams across it will be a means of conserving .vater to be used for irrigation purposes.

If the farmers of North Dakota are to restore their iands, it will be necessary to plant more grass. This in turn will give a greater crop of hay for grazing purposes, providing the numbers of cattle and sheep are not greatly increased, and also in that way forage can be kept over the current season tq guard against shortage the next year.
