Some people have come to believe more in the darkness of the.world and the power of evil than in the light and the overcoming: power of good. Of course, the pessimists da have the best of the argument if we leave God and religion out of ^ the world. But when we look at life through the eyes of God W we' discover important truths and see the world in its proper perspective. " '' Our religion teaches us that God always sends help to men 'in the time of their greatest need, in their darkest hour; and that far from being out of place in a world at war, the message- of Christ has always been most needed ' and hiost clearly understood when the world was in despair. God did not send Christ into a world that was peaceful and serene. God sent Him into a world that was in desperate need.- We usually think of the birth of Christ in connectio xwthr angels and shepherds and. a star, but we forgot about Caesar Augustus and Herod. Caesar Augustus was Rome's firSt Hitler. He was raised to power with the irresistible backing' of his own private army. He formed a government with himself at 4;he head in order to meet a national emergency, real or trumped-up. He next liquidated by assassination three hundred senators and two thousand army leaders, enemies of the state. He then confiscated land ahd cities, redistributing the territory among his friends. jHe.'was not only Dictator,.but he.was reelected^eyery year. And feing Herod of. Jerusalem was the same "type, on a smaller iscale. He got his appointment through "political influence" and kept it through.murder. The Bibical-tale of the slaughter of , t#e'infanfcC^a.s one of Herod's smaller,, qi'imes,- too. insignificant -to 'be Jfientioned in the official records, He" murdered peoplerand' innocent children. ""- Christ came"into a world ruled by these two gentlemen, a world not any prettier than our own, a world of slavery, of cruelty, of ruthlessness, of violence, a sick world full of ignorance, of hopelessness and of sin. But it was just because the world was so dai'k that it 4fy needed more than ever the light of Christ. If there were no darkness in the world there would be no need for light; if there were no illness in the world there would be no need for a physician; if there were no ignorance iruthe world there Y<raid De no nee(j for a teacher; if there were no sin in the world there would be no need for a saviour; if there were no imperfections in the world there would be no need for ideals. Bjit darkness and sickness and ignorance and sin are with us. Shall we therefore refuse to receive Christ, our only. hope of salvation? Just when, we need it most shall we refuse to listen to the Christian message? On the contrary, just because the world is dark that message shines more brightly than ever before. A Gift of Gratitude There was a story in the paper the other, morning which couldn't have happened any place but in America and which to my mind expresses beautifully the spirit that is America. An original parchment manuscript of the Bill of Rights, embodying the early amendments to the Constitution of the United States, affirming freedom of speech, religion, press $nd assembly, was presented to the Library of Congress— . not by a descehdent of one the signers', not by "a man whose |^ forefathers fought.in the War of the Revolution—but by a second generation American, the son of immigrant parents. This gift was made in the spirit of gratitude for the freedom which its donor's parents found here; that freedom which he himself so enjoyed and cherished. What could be more expressive of America than that the son of immigrants could have progressed to such a point of financial independence in this country as to be able to purchase such f rare item ? And whal^ could be more fitting than that he, an Amercian by birth, commemorated the memory of his parents, 'Americans by choice','by giving to the American people this great manuscript ? • In accepting the parchment, the Librarian of- Congress wrote: "The manuscript of the Bill of Rights is the only one of the basic American documents needed to complete our foldings. I can think'of no act of generosity to the people pf the United States which would have more meaning at this £ime or to be more/widely appreciated than the gift of that particular document." ' . "It is a particularly significant thing that the manuscript of the Bill of Rights should have been given back to the American people, by one to whom tiie Bill of Rights has jneant so, much.. ... But, after all," that is America: A nation founded not on |r, - a code of laws, of regulations and restrictions, but upon a 7 Bill of Rights for all people. A land that has given refuge to the downtrodden and depressed" peoples from all nations, . affording those who had intelligence and energy the opportunity of becoming useful citizens of a brave new world- A country where the least may become "the greatest, where $ach has the power to make a contribution to the common melting pot. . * We Americans have cause for gratitude not only for this gift but for the fact tbat pur nation, our way of Hfe/lnspired : the gift. In accenting it, let us in our own hearts pledge ^urselves to. the continuation-and implementation^of-*that ^If-same. Bill of Rights so that it may serve as a pillar of *Ioud by- day and a pillar of fire by night to countless gen- eration yet. to;folloHF.^ ....,.,. ,.:,. -., _ . , _ -..

' " - ..D.L. Hy.de. Opiomists Decide What To Do With Hitter . The North Canton Optimist club held its, regular meeting Wednesday, January 39th, at the Community: building. The feature of the evening was a discussion by ten members, of what disposition should be] made of Herr Hitler and his henchmen after the war. Ed Lowry and Lcs Achaucr were captains with four helpers each. The boys, really told what should rightly be done to punish these snpermen, but it was surprising that each speaker ended up by stating that we must, be broad minded enough to see the human side of this and not be too vindictive. Practically all members - were present, together with several guests and prospective members. Refreshments were served, and every. one enjoyed the social portion 'of "the' meeting. The next regular meeting will be February 2nd. .at 7-.30, with Mr. W. I. Mutchmore giving a talk- on the Indian, and his own experiences while traveling with different groups of boys from his classes, which he has done at the close of each school year for ' several. years. This promises to be very interesting, and as we are still open for charter members, we invite any "men who might be interested in a service and social club to meet with us, and get the particulars of the set up."

Betty The Fourth War Loan Drive challenges American civilians to raise $14,000,000,000—an average of $1,400 (*ach for approximately 10,000,000 Americans in the armed forces. Included is the $3,000,000,000 E Bond goal which itself adds up to S300 for every serviceman and woman from "this county'.atfcf 3,000 counties in the United States. Although the War Bond fltpney is used all along the line, /rpiri "mine to factory, munitlpns pl?nt to :bat- tlefront, the amount sought 'seems less staggering, and has more rnpan- ing, when'it is measured against the number of men arid women in uniform. War Bond volunteers and the genr eral community are urged to keep the comparison in mind as citizens here join in the nation-wide effort to get everybody's pocketbook back of the attack on nation's enemies." And when our turn comes to huy those extra Bonds, let's take our-cue from a Fourth War Loan" ppster slogan, "Let 'Em Have It" Although this community helped Ohio set a national record in the previous campaign, the Fourth W^r Loan will require even greater'ef- fort here and throughout the state, campaign information shows. ■Ohioans must purchase 533,000,000 more Series E War Bonds than in September to reach the state's $174,- 000,000 goal in these denominations. The state was first in the 48 to cross its September goal of 3>698,r 000,000, but was outdistanced' by others in purchase of the "people's" E bonds. While its over-all quota of ,$672,000,000 this time is lower, Ohios' E Bond task is over IS percent greater. More people must be solicited and more people must buy Bonds here and in the state and nation in this campaign between now and Feb. 15. Only 50 percent of Americans were personally solicited in September, and only 38 out of every 100 Americans bought. In the- Fourth War Loan everybody is called to make back-the-at- tack War Bond purchases.

-BACJC THE ATTACK
Ligfii And Darkness
~ These are the days for faith to be strong and courage
high. Some people have come to believe more in the darkness
of the.world and the power of evil than in the light and the
overcoming: power of good. Of course, the pessimists da have
the best of the argument if we leave God and religion out of
^ the world. But when we look at life through the eyes of God
W we' discover important truths and see the world in its proper
" '' Our religion teaches us that God always sends help to
men 'in the time of their greatest need, in their darkest
hour; and that far from being out of place in a world at war,
the message- of Christ has always been most needed ' and
hiost clearly understood when the world was in despair. God
did not send Christ into a world that was peaceful and
serene. God sent Him into a world that was in desperate
need.- We usually think of the birth of Christ in connectio
xwthr angels and shepherds and. a star, but we forgot about
Caesar Augustus and Herod. Caesar Augustus was Rome's
firSt Hitler. He was raised to power with the irresistible
backing' of his own private army. He formed a government
with himself at 4;he head in order to meet a national emergency, real or trumped-up. He next liquidated by assassination three hundred senators and two thousand army leaders,
enemies of the state. He then confiscated land ahd cities,
redistributing the territory among his friends. jHe.'was not
only Dictator,.but he.was reelected^eyery year. And feing
Herod of. Jerusalem was the same "type, on a smaller iscale.
He got his appointment through "political influence" and
kept it through.murder. The Bibical-tale of the slaughter of
, t#e'infanfcC^a.s one of Herod's smaller,, qi'imes,- too. insignificant -to 'be Jfientioned in the official records, He" murdered
peoplerand' innocent children.
""- Christ came"into a world ruled by these two gentlemen,
a world not any prettier than our own, a world of slavery,
of cruelty, of ruthlessness, of violence, a sick world full of
ignorance, of hopelessness and of sin.
But it was just because the world was so dai'k that it
4fy needed more than ever the light of Christ. If there were no
darkness in the world there would be no need for light; if
