LOBBY SHOW CROWDS REAL OLIVER TWISTS Like the Boy In Charles Dickens' Story, They Are Clamoring For More, and It Is a Safe Guess They'll Get What They Ask For Providing Willis Wood and His Able Lieutenants Can Ladle Out Talent. ANOTHER WOW TONIGHT So popular has the lobby show each Wednesday night in the Community Building become that there is an insistent demand for "more." It is all right to ask for more shows, but can Willis Wood, physical director in the big building, and his able lieutenants find the talent each week? That is the question agitating the minds of those responsible for the shows, but as accommodating the public is one of Handy Wolf's accomplishments, he may be able with the assistance of Willis Wood and others to keep the performances going during the winter months, at least. Credit To the Town The lobby shows would do credit to a town many times larger in population than North Canton, and the public is now convinced that there is an abundance of good material ready for a try-out. So, on with the show! And the time for starting it this Wednesday night is 7:30. Handy Wolf, chairman of the social committee of the boys' physical department, has planned an event following the show. Some Fine Acts The show on Wednesday night drew a large crowd. The Dramatic club gave a shadow play that was well received. The young men's class displayed skill on the horizontal bars. Girls' tumbling team showed the work that goes on in their classes. Boxing made up the final act of the show when Dick Studer went three rounds against Forrest Felger. Tom Smith vs. A. Burkholtz, Dick Mohler vs. Art Schneider, Robert Moon vs. Jim Kolp. Some real scrappy bouts were witnessed, and it was a fitting climax to the evening. HOOYER CLEANERS ' IN"<mm TONIGHT Meet the Dine-DeWeese Club In Y Gym At 7:45.

Gross, North Canton hardware dealer, is on the committee planning for the convention of the Ohio Hardware association expected to attract more than 2,000 hardware men of the-state to the Deshler-Wallick hotel here Feb. 15 to 18. An exhibition in Columbus Auditorium said to be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars will be a feature of the convention. Entertainment has been planned by wives of Columbus dealers. "National Hardware Week" will be introduced, the date having been set for May 9 to 14. An intensive advertising campaign is to be waged during that period. Told Without Vamishh Ben Long I am convinced that only by such a medium as this column can certain types of news and opinions be set forth. Few Real Troubles In the office of a Canton business man hangs a large printed card containing the following words: "I have had a whole heap of troubles in my life, and most of them never happened." We don't need t o have that printed and hung on the wall, but it'' would do most of us a lot of good if we remembered it and said it to ourselves once a day. For we've all had heaps of troubles, and precious few of them have ever happened. There isn't a single day when we can't look back and see how much time and energy we've wasted fussing and worrying over something we thought was going to happen and which never happened at all. And the only reason we don't feel thoroughly ashamed of ourselves every night is because we don't think about it. After all, it. may be a wise move to have that motto printed and hung where we can't help seeing it every night as we go to bed! There are very few real troubles in the world. Death, serious illness, dire poverty—things like these are troubles; and even so, they've got to be faced and overcome. But the vast majority of things we groan about aren't troubles at all. They're only irritations. And anyone who thinks he's going through life without having to put up with a host of irritations every day had better change his point of view as quickly as he can. Otherwise he's in for a very unhappy time. SENTIMENT LIVES ON ST.

CHARLES R. BUCIIER. By his Attorney, E. W. MILLER. ' Published in The Sun, North Canton, February 9, 10, 23; March 2, il, 10, 1938. They Won't Starve In my young days I was a ship news reporter for an organization known today as The Associated Press. It wat anything but an easy life and it carried with it many dangers ship news writers of today never meet. Just the same, we fellows enjoyed the work, notwithstanding that when we left the service after serving three years we carried scars on face, head and body time cannot obliterate. I have never lost my love for ships so I was interested in a news story concerning the Nermandie, flagship of tlie French line, which sailed from New York on Saturday on a 22-day cruise to Rio de Janeiro. Her great larders are stocked with 2G9 tons of provisions, all American bought, with the exception of two tons of caviai and 150,000 quarts of champagne. The Normandie accommodates over 2000 passengers, requiring a crew oi 1339, although the passenger list oi? this cruise is limited to 1000. The big liner had on board when she sailed on February 5 ten tons of chicken, five tons of turkey, four tons of duck, 15 tons of butter, 25 tons of milk and cream, seven tons of cheese and 100 tons of ice, 30 tons of selected vegetables, six tons of lobster, 10 tons of fish and 40 tons of meat, 150,000 eggs, 4000, cases of fruit, 500,000 American cigarettes and 50,000 cigars. The Normandie, by the way, will be the first ship of her size ever to sail into the harbor of Rio. Myrna Loy, recently voted the most popular actress in American films conies to Loew's on Friday in "Man- Proof," surrounded by a stellar cast which includes such well known personalities as Franchot Tone, Rosalind Russell and Walter Pidgeon. In the new picture based on a novel by Fanny Heaslip Lea, Miss Loy makes a striking departure from hei familiar role of the "Perfect Wife" tt play an ultramodern girl who over rides old-fashioned conversations in her pursuit of the man she loves. The plot, in brief, describes Miss Loy as a neswpaper artist in love with a social climber, Walter Pidgeon When he marries Rosalind Russell, society heiress, Miss Loy resolves to win him back. Meanwhile, Franchot Tone, young cartoonist, falls in love with her. When the honeymooners returns Miss Loy renews her siege. Piedgeon is surprised by his wife in Miss Loy's apartment. But when he is offered a divorce he refuses, knowing that lie is in love only with himself, Miss Loy at last realizes the futility of her false romance and turns back to Tone. With a modern New York background, the picture has been given lavish settings which include metropolitan newspaper offices, millionaires' mansions, night clubs and Madison Square Garden. Acclaimed by naval officers the most authentic story ever written about the historic United States Naval Academy, "Navy Blue and Gold" opens on the same bill. The novel steeped in colorful traditions of the same institution was written by George Bruce who also adapted it to the screen. The picture is headed by a strong cast including Robert Young, James Stewart, Lionel Barrymore, Florence Rice, Billie Burke, Tom Brown, Samuel S. Hinds, Paul Kelly and Barnett Parker. It portrays the poignant devotion of cadets pledged to their country'.* seivice, the heartaches of stern character-building discipline, the thrilling sportsmanship of the navy's titanic football games, and the love of tw<- players for the sister of their quarterback pal. o ■ Sure It Is "If it's in The Sun, it's so." After a visit to the Schafer„$ Messerly drug store and the store of Don Cameron and reading the social news in The Sun it is easy to see that there is something refreshingly sentimental about the early part of February. Florists and candy sellers cheerfully anticipate a rush of business come February 14, St. Valentine's day. The origin of Valentine day is popularly ascribed to a certain Saint Valentine, but as it happens, Valentine was the name of many saints. The most celebrated were two martyrs whose festivals fall on February 14, one a Roman priest and the other, a bishop. Historical research discloses no reason for the sentimental tradition that attaches to the day in the lives of either of these two men. Opinion of Scholars Scholars now prefer the explanation that the word "Valentine," with all it connotes, derives from the Latin adjective "valens," from which the English language derives both "valiant" and "gallant," as the letters "v" and "g" were interchangeable in popular speech. A further word hunt discloses the Norman word "galatin" was frequently written "valantan" or "Valentin" and meant, as nearly as it can be translated, "lover of the fair sex." First Fancy Valentines The first fancy valentines made in America dates 1850 and is credited to Esther Howland, daughter of a Massachusetts stationer. Frequently they ran to large sizes elaborately embellished in gold paper and lace and charmingly mounted. One of the earliest known valentines in America, now the property of the Delaware Historical society, was sent by Samuel Wood, a Wilmington merchant, to his future wife, Patience Irwin, in 1787. It will not be out of place here to mention that many years ago a reporter on a Philadelphia evening newspaper was sent to Wilmington to get data for a special feature story on valentines as they looked before 1800 and down to 1900. In one of the rooms of the Delaware Historical society he was introduced to a young lady. A year later he married her. Language of Love Looking at the valentines in the Schafer & Messerly store and the Cameron store it was plain to be seen that while the 193S valentines show no lessening of ardor nor sentiment, they speak a language of love that seems more simple, direct and forthright than heretofore. This year Dan Cupid is taking a flyer in colors other than red, and many hearts will be sent, blue outlined in scalloped silver, gray and rose, red plaid or gray and primrose yellow. Unkindly Comics "Out" According to the valentines, romance this year is friendlier as well as franker. Cooing doves and winged cupids seem to be neax-Iy extinct. The brand of humor exhibited this February has come a long way from the days of the old unkindly comics. The humor of today is bright and peppy but seldom unfriendly or venomous. There are plenty of valentines for the children to send, too; to parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, and of course for "teacher," in designs to give the child a real pleasure and interest in their selection. DI5PLAY50PIGTURES North Canton Library Also Has Many New Books. The display at the North Canton Library this month is a group of fifty pictures loaned by the Camera club of Canton. The pictures are enlargements of camera shots and are framed and hung in the little gallery on second floor. Many subjects are included in the display. There are photographic enlargements, flowers and tree studies, outdoor and industrial scenes and many unusual pictures. Two new books on camera lore have been added: Fanstone, color photography and orford, lens-work for amateurs. See Inside Pages In The Sun Today For Special Features FIDELITY LODGE NO. F. and A.

STARMNGFACTS Set Forth By Strausser's Meat Market In The Sun. On an inside page and on the back page of The Sun today Strausser's Meat Market makes some startling announcements concerning pork chops, hamburg patties, chicken legs, wieners, "T"-bone steaks, lamb shouldei roast, etc. After you read the Strausser ads you'll agree with The Sun that they are "startling," but "mighty interesting reading." sociaTsegurity Speakers Will Explain Act Ai Meeting In Canton. "What Social Security Means to the Worker" will be the subject of discussion at a Labor Forum to be held on Wednesday, February 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Jewish Center auditorium, 411 North Market street, Canton. All labor officials and leaders are invited. All labor groups throughout Stark, Tuscarawas, Carroll, Harrison, and Holmes counties are sponsoring tlie forum, for which arrangements' are being made by Wayne W. Putnam, manager of the field office of the Social Security Board, in the Mellett building, Canton. "It is our plan1 to explain to aU workers in this meeting just what are their obligations and privileges under the Social Security act," Mr. Putnam ^aid in announcing plans for the forum. "The principal discussion.will be devoted to old-age insurance and unemployment compensation," he added. SAVIMTHEHOUSE A Few Repairs At a Time Is Easier For the Owner. I B As The Sun Sees It Without Prejudice a -j I Make America Secure Against Invasion EVEN before President Roosevelt sent his message to congress it was understood by all thinking citizens that sentimentality and blind faith should no longer be permitted to stand in the way of an adequate national defense. The President was but expressing the people's convictions when he called for a strengthened army, navy and air force. He was looking at the world through their eyes when he pictured the almost universal armament race and the blood that was being shed in battle on several fronts. It will not do to fool ourselves any longer. Whatever the wish for peace on the part of peoples, the all power ful dictators do much of their thinking in terms of war. In spite of the prayers of millions in all corners of the world, any nation may find its peace shattered at any time. With so many countries devoting the greater part of their energies and treasure to preparations for conflict, it i.s suicide for the United States to be less than wisely armed. There is no new national philosophy involved in the President's program. America still hates war and will go to great lengths to avoid it. America has no designs on any othor country's possessions. America still seeks to be a good neighbor to everybody. But, in an uncertain world, America will leave no stone unturned to make itself secure. PATSY STRINGS ALONG PULLING THE CROWD Three-Act Comedy Staged By North Canton Dramatic Club and Sponsored by Local American Legion Post Proves Excellent Entertainment—Every Member of the Capable Cast Scores In a Bright Play. In Order To Have, We Must Produce AS EVERY person knows, the words quoted below are in the Bible: "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread."—Genesis iii.19. This economic law given by the Creator to mankind has controlled human relations since the Creation. Like all natural laws dominating our system, no matter what we think about it, this economic law still holds good. In order to have, we must produce, and the measure of our abundance depends upon the efficiency of our production. Whatever interferes with efficient production cuts down our standard of living and makes life more difficult. The elements of production are capital, labor and management. Efficient production depends upon WARSTLJ SIGNS Will Be Again Found Playing With Boston Bees. ARE tOU GOING PLACES? If So, the N. C. Libary Can Give You Valuable Information.

Mr. and Mrs. Hall. Mr. and Mrs. Roger Kelly and Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Hall left on Friday for their homes in Kansas City, Mo., and Los Angeles, California. Mr. Kelly will return in about two weeks to attend a meeting of Hoover district managers, R. W. ("Dick") Ramsey of the Ramsey Lumber company of Aultman left today to remain this week attending the Ohio lumber dealers' convention. When in The Sun office yesterday- Mr. Ramsey said that the "indoors weeks" of the year, before garden season and the time for painting the outside of the house arrives, is tie ideal period for taking care of repairs and improvements inside the house. • Mr. Ramsey believes that too many house owners make a heavier burden of keeping up their property than i-i necessary. They do this, he says, by- putting off interior repairs until it is the season to make repairs outside. This means that there is double the necessary expense coming at one time. Mr. Ramsey pointed out that it is much easier for the owner to do a few repairs at a time and thus continually keep the property in good condition with a minimum of expense and inconvenience. Harold (Rapp) Warstler, classy second baseman of the Boston Bees (National league club) returned a signed contract to the management last night (Tuesday). This means he will go south with the team this Spring. Judging from the broad smile on Rapp's face this morning the figures on the contract pleased him. game¥sa¥rday Will Be Last For School On Local Gym Floor. Saturday brings the curtain down for the N. C. high school boys on their home floor when they meet the strong Hartville Blues. Although the visitors have a far superior record, the locals have made their plans to close the league season with victories. Having played brilliantly off and on during the season, a victory would not be a surprise. LITERARYCLUB Valentine Exchange Will Be a ' Feature of Roll-Call fair, honest and wise co-operation between these three elements. The rabid policy of certain radical labor leaders has created dissension and distrust and stirred up contention between these essentials, and in certain sections of America wage-earners and employers are paying dearly for it. Whoever attempts to create strife and distrust between employers an 1 wage-earners, upon whose co-operation American prosperity depends, is far from being a friend of either capital or labor. To put it in an easy way, such a fellow is a carbuncle on tlie neck of labor, and the quicker he is dropped by the working man the better it will be for millions of aspiring and industrious citizens in every walk of life. ANNOUNCE MARRIAGE Of Elizabeth Nelius To John Terrigan, July 3,1937. Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Nelius of 513 McKinley street announce the marriage of their daughter, Elizabeth, to John Terrigan, son of Mrs. Paul Patrick of 421 13th St. SE., Canton.

The Stark county high school debate tournament and oratorical tournament are being held at Canton Township high school on Saturday, February 12. This program begins at S:30 in the morning. The North Canton negative debate team went to Navarre on Tuesday afternoon. The pupils of the grade school and high school were appreciative of the assembly program on Friday, February 4.

Fancy Work club will meet with Mrs. Paul Strausser on Wednesday, February IG. o Sure It Is "If it's in The Sun, it's so." Blunt speech seems to be the keynote of the novel three-act comedy, "Patsy Strings Along," which generated a full quota of merriment on its first showing on Friday night in the Community Building by the North Canton Dramatic club. The success was repeated on Saturday. The play was sponsored by tlie North Canton American Legion. Once the artful but comely June Botham (Patsy) opens her mouth it is a sign that she is about to utter some startling statement—and make it "stick," as the housekeeper, the maid, thc head master, and even the Ail-American football player and coach realized. Her bossing was gentle, but firm. An Unusual Concoction An unusual humorous concoction is this play, for much of the fun is derived from serious happenings. Miss Botham did exceptionally bright work as Patsy, ami Betty Gray (Mrs. Mario Groat) as the stern blue-stocking housekeeper, was most effective, and when she became excited over the academy team winning the football game she put on a scene one word fits— hilarious! Jane Wickersham (Sue Taylor) and Marion Deetz (Agatha Poe) added flavor to the piece by sensible stage work. Their parts called for a certain style of subdued, yet bubbling, acting, and they carried their lines in first- class manner, as did Myrna Ingram (Jenny Porter) in her role. No fault to find with their output. [Continued on back page] TAFTBLLSPEAK In Jackson Twp. School and Massillon On Thursday, Feb. 17.

REAL OLIVER TWISTS
Like the Boy In Charles Dickens'
Story, They Are Clamoring
For More, and It Is a Safe
Guess They'll Get What They
Ask For Providing Willis
Wood and His Able Lieutenants Can Ladle Out Talent.
ANOTHER WOW TONIGHT
So popular has the lobby show each
Wednesday night in the Community
Building become that there is an insistent demand for "more." It is all
right to ask for more shows, but can
Willis Wood, physical director in the
big building, and his able lieutenants
find the talent each week?
That is the question agitating the
minds of those responsible for the
shows, but as accommodating the public is one of Handy Wolf's accomplishments, he may be able with the assistance of Willis Wood and others to
keep the performances going during
the winter months, at least.
Credit To the Town
The lobby shows would do credit to
a town many times larger in population than North Canton, and the public is now convinced that there is an
abundance of good material ready for
a try-out. So, on with the show! And
the time for starting it this Wednesday night is 7:30.
Handy Wolf, chairman of the social
committee of the boys' physical department, has planned an event following the show.
Some Fine Acts
The show on Wednesday night drew
a large crowd. The Dramatic club
gave a shadow play that was well received. The young men's class displayed skill on the horizontal bars.
Girls' tumbling team showed the work
that goes on in their classes.
Boxing made up the final act of the
show when Dick Studer went three
rounds against Forrest Felger. Tom
