Fred Sutter of Columbus and the Rev. Paul Rempe Visit North Canton and Meet With Brotherhood At Session At Hoover Camp Monday. ENJOYED DINNER, SPORTS The Lutheran Brotherhood meeting held on the Hoover Camp grounds on Monday evening proved to be an enjoyable affair. Sixty men attended the meeting that had been arranged honoring the Rev. Paul Rempe, a former pastor of the North Canton church. Rev. Fred Sutter of Columbus, a former pastor, was also in attendance. The other ministers were the Revs. Charles Ra- sel and Oscar Mees of Canton and Mr. Duwe of Paris Lutheran church. Each of the clergymen gave short talks. Dinner and Sports A softball game between North Canton members and Bethel members resulted in Victory for North Canton. Dinner was served at 7:00 p. m. A group of men, members of the North Canton Band, gave several selections. Ladies of the Lutheran church held a supper 'oft Monday evening in the church honoring Mrs. Paul Rempe, which was served at 6:30 and a social evening was enjoyed. TO FROLIC PROPPED in bed for the past seven days recovering from what my physician, Dr. Cox, terms the flu, my thoughts have been dwelling on the great, the near-great, and the ordinary run-of-mine fellows the daily papers work into the headlines every time they scream about their independence and their anxiety to save the Constitution and the people from becoming slaves to a man named Franklin D. Roosevelt. The men I have in mind like to pose as Democrats. For years they held important offices in the nation as Democrats, and several of them almost died with- apoplexy in the not too-far past while standing on a public platform hurling denunciations at the heads of gentlemen known as Republicans. For years it proved to be a profitable business, and as long as they found it paid they (continued to sail under the Jefferson-Jackson flag. Then something happened, and one of the Democrats who had pulled to defeat hundreds of loyal party men of the highest type decided to become lukewarm because Ms party refused him a renomination. Having once gone "through a slaughter house 'to an open grave" (apology to Henry Watterson) the rank and file of .Democrats preferred to take a chance with a man who -for years had been .the defeated one's ardent supporter and friend, so they nominated him .and the people elected him. •J t t STILL prnpne-d in bed, my thoughts traveled -back to the days when I was familiar with their political records. "Wonder," I muttered, "if they recall .the antics of a fellow named Judas, or a man known as Simon Peter? Certainly they heard of Benedict.Arnold." Judas betrayed his Chief, Simon de-. nied Him. The one delivered a deliberate and calculated blow; the otbwr went out into the night, but with penitence .and the love of Christ in Ms heart. The cock-crowing for Peter was the" heralding of a heavenly dawn. Judas was first and last a self-seeking politician. No doubt about that. He believed the glories of Mount Zion would be restored and he would "hold high office. DeQuincey suggests *that •Judas looked upon Christ as a kind of Hamlet. "Ho. -'"jslt his Master was given too much to . speculation, mot enough to action. So he betrayed Him so that his Master would be forced to act, yet all the while he loved and trusted* Him. This fascinating theory is not supported by those who read their" New Testament. The scene in the "upper room proves that. Judas was bad enough to commit that act of black infamy, but'ne was noble enough to find his guilt -unbearable and go out and hang himself. tit EVERY man in the United 'States has a perfect right to his own opinion. When he is denied that privilege he becomes a slave. But when men pose as Democrats for years, while in. public office, and then suddenly discover that their party is "all wrong" there is certainly an odor in the cheese, even though it never saw Denmark. When you stop to think you realize that many of the former big wigs in the Democratic party are associated in some way with Much Money, and that Much Money demands prompt sen-ice.

He is to come to New Philadelphia by plane from Cincinnati, where he is is deliver the principal address at the annual outing of the Duckworth Democratic club, oldest political club in Ohio. The Governor will be met at the New Philadelphia airport by members and escorted to the New Cumberland picnic grounds, just outside of town, where he is scheduled to arrive at 8:30 p. m. N. C-lCHOOLlEWS Registration for pupils entering the high school who did not register last spring will be held on Friday, August 28 in the. high school office. Pupils are asked to register between 9:00 a. m. and 11:30 a. m., 1:00 p. m. and 4:30 p. m., and 7:00 p. m. to 8:00 p. m. New pupils should bring report cards along with them. It has been the custom for the past few years for all new pupils who have not presented birth certificates in previous years to bring them to school with them on the first day. Registration is not completed until birth certificates are presented. Most families have official birth certificates but if the child does'not have one it may be secured from the attending physician, from the county board of health, or from the department of health, the bureau of vital statistics, Columbus, Ohio. All parents should have a copy of this certificate for themselves and for every child. . We trust pupils who will be in kindergarten and ..first grade next year and who were given examinations in the summer round up with recommendations for corrections, have had these taken care of so that the health of the child will be the''very best. Physical defects cause so much absence, it is to the best interest of the child that ail corrections be made that possibly can be before the child enters school. Many of these defects are not only a physical handicap but a mental handicap as well. o—— Irene Wise A Bride Resident of Uniontown Becomes the Wife of Maurj«* .McClellan Miss Irene Wise, "laughter of Herbert Wise, became ilie bride of Maurice McClellan at a ceremony at the Methodist church «>n Saturday afternoon at 4:30 p. m.., with the Rev.

Members of the immediate "families attended the wedding. Music was played by Miss Esther Schweisberger of North Canton. As The s un Sees it Without Pre judice An Open Mind PEOPLE these days are reading and hearing a lot about "keeping un open mind and using dispassionate judgment in our dealings with public affairs and public men." One of the most difficult arts for any human being to acquire is the art of keeping an open mind. We all like to preen ourselves on our ability to do it, but few of us really succeed. We can all do it, certainly, over things that do not interest us or touch us, but it is when our prejudices are tapped, our beliefs attacked, our mental corns trodden on, that we go to pieces. If all our prejudices and beliefs and ideals were based on reason, we could afford to be assertive, but very few of them are. We believe things because it is convenient to believe them. Wc cling to ideas because we like them offended if someone dares to question our wisdom. That's how nearly all rows start— two persons, who only think they know, fighting ignorance with ignorance. If each would really listen, and really keep an open mind, they would soon get that little bit of extra knowledge that would enable them to test their beliefs by the only possible test —facts. The secret of keeping an open mind is to be willing to revise opinion by facts, and to know truth when you see it. REPUBLICANS LISTEN TO JAMES S. LINCOLN President of Electrical Manufacturing; Company of Cleveland and Chairman Republican Finance Committee Urges Voters To Support Landon. OTHERS RAP DEMOCRATS A Famous Dwarf GLANCING at a circus poster this week this writer for The Sun recalled a picture of "General" Tom Thumb, who was born 98 years ago. There you have an illustration of the power of advertising. Probably there isn't more than one adult reader out —= -■ of every ten who does not instantly not necessarily because we know them ; identify "General" Tom Thumb as the to be true. We hold many an opinion I (*warf wnom P. T. Barnum made we should find it hard to justify on world-famous by printed publicity. any gi*ounds*-whatever You cannot form a judgement that is of any worth unless you understand. And you cannot.understand unless you know. The basis of all sound judgement is knowledge. You cannot be ignorant and keep an open mind. Ignorance is the father of prejudice. We are all apt.not to judge, but to pre-judge, to jump ahead of facts and form opinions without sufficient grounds for them. That wouldn't matter if we were willing to revise our opinions when fresh facts were brought to our notice; but most of us, having formed . an opinion, seem to regard it as something sacred. We become dogmatic about it. We get TAX MEN COMING Will Be In Citizens' Building and Loan Office on Friday, Aug. 21. Fred C. Pontius, treasurer of Stark county, has arranged through the courtesy of the -officials of the Citizens Building and "Loan Company to send deputies to tlhe Citizens Building in North Canton, where Ralph Young is manager, or.

There have been many dwarfs exhibited in recent years who were considerably smaller than Charles S. Stratton, whom Barnum renamed Tom Thumb, 25 inches tall, weighing 25 pounds, at the age of 25 years. There was a midget in one of last year's circuses in Canton who was several inches shorter than Tom Thumb. But there are very few who know his name, except among the show folk themselves. That's the difference that advertising makes. Charles S. Stratton died just 53 years ago. But to this day, if you ask the average person, "Who was the famous dwarf?" the prompt reply will be "Tom Thumb." FOOTBALL PRACTICE Community Building Team Will Start Training on.

Sees Dark Future He painted a dark picture of the future unless Governor Landon is elected, and as chairman of the committee to raise funds to advance the interests of the Republican nominees he feels it is his duty to tour Ohio and urge all Republicans to forget past differences and rally around the standard of the party.
