r "miMr.tr&Mt.V -.T.tr'ir* <rrrrtrZr^Cr<? C.FA. fr Supporting The War ' The American people desire to shorten the war as they never desired anything- before. Many of them may well consider,, whether they are doing- all they can themselves to accomplish. this end. One of the most important things for them to. do is to salvage valuable materials. When the drives first started to salvage such things as paper, fats, tin, etc, there hwas a good deal of enthusiasm about making this contribution. •The.newspapers and the radio gave a great deal of publicity :td,th"ese drives, and keptthe subject'constantly before the people. "The school children did a,grand job canvassing the homes. The appeal of the little faces at the*door asking if the.people had any of .these useful things, helped to advertise thejcause, and secured a lot of co-operation. After people have heard these appeals for a long time, some,of them may feel it is an old story, and perhaps may lose a'-little of their interest. The need for this salvage is great, and the people should form the habit of saving all materials for which the government asks, and delivering them" to the collectors. The .purchase of war bonds should not be restricted to the periods when special drives are being conducted. It is a helpful thing if people can put aside a certain portion of their income each week or .month, and devote it to the purchase of these Tbonds.. It takes a stupendous amount of money to provide all the infinite "variety of equipment that the a"med-forces,need, and the people -who buy the bonds help pay "for all this. Many of the people who live quietly at home and have none of their men in the armed forces, often feel that they are do- VOL. 22—|No, 13 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY,-JANUARY 17, 1945 $2.00- PER YEAR Canal Fulton Sergeant Meets North Cantonite in England "1 should know that fellow," Staff Sgt.Eugene Fellmeth of Canal Fulton remarked to himself the day he stood at an airport in England and watched a new crew come in. So he walked over closer, to find that "that fellow" was Cpl. Arnet Jaberg, son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Jaberg of North Canton. After a short visit the two planned another get-together as soon as possible. Sgt. Fellmeth, son <fi Mr. and Mrs W. H. Fellmeth of Canal Fulton told in a letter home of meeting two college friends, one of whom is now on his way back to the United States. He also told of a recent pass to London where he-had a good look at the Thames river," the place where his grandfather, J. C. Gaudau won a world championship in sculling. Jsinior^Ohigrchmen's Dinner This Friday The annual dinner sponsored by the Junior Men's Bible Class of Zion Reformed church for all the men of the church will be held Friday evening at 6:30 o'clock in the church dining room. 1 Attorney James Emsley, of Canton, guest speaker for the evening, will have as his topic, "The Trial of Christ from a Lawyer's Viewpoint." Walter Trott will serve as toast- inaster. New officers for the class will be installed at the meeting, with Lester Ashburn the incoming- president. W. C Elson is retiring president. Clarence Marquardt is chairman of the dinner which will be served by members of the Rebecca class. Approximately one hundred guests are expected to at tend. ing .but httle the- veAiiiiil»£e:0 „plainij imporfca&tife jjn^ihe^jgar effort.

What wev.need to win "the peace is just what we needed to win the waiwjoint councils of strategy, collective action, collective thinking, collective wisdom. We who have fought together should not be chance acquaintances, .meeting only to separate when the emergency isTtemporarily over. We are comrades who should have learned how to give and take and who by working together should have grown to appreciate each other. -The international conferences which have been held these past months—the'Food Conference, the International Labor Conference, the Monetary Conference, UNNRA, Dumbarton Oaks and the rest—have not been secret meetings planned to foist power politics upon the world—but a sincere seeking for.the lowest common denominator on which to build the foundation for a solution of our common problems. In contrast, to the policy of national economic isolationism, which ' aeni.es the existence of mutuality of interests, they have "searched for ways of cooperation, which would be to the enlightened self-interest of each nation. There-can be no permanent peace if each nation pursues its dqmestici policy -without regard to its effect on the outside world."'This applies to us as much as it does to the nations of"Europe. As long as the ocean was a barrier, we could stand aloof. Now the ocean is no longer a barrier, but a lane. We .are a part ofthe'world, not apart from it. In common council we can learn each others problems. Through friendly discussion we can achieve understanding. The huge obstacles in the path to reconstruction can be conquered only by all of us collectively, regardless of our race, our'nationality, our class, or our creed, if we keep our ideals, .ifiwp-cling steadfastly t'o the belief that humanity by its own exertions can attain a higher and nobler destiny than anything, it has known. Only in this way may our hopes of a "World made free from war be realized. •We are not.the only ones. ieer, fussing in Action, Now in Hospital in France An anxiously awaited telegram from the war department arrived on Wednesday evening to tell Mrs. William Gier, the former Helen Frank, of 410 Portage St. that her husband, Pfc.

Heroes Meet Nurses Needed » The fear.' is expressed that unless many more nurses in this'country volunteer for service in the army hospitals.-in Europe, "these centers will be short 1600 nurses by next April. The increased number of casualties creates an added demand for nursing service. , Those who -are- able to volunteer for this work will have the intense gratitude -Of the men whom they serve. " The nurses will look back at this experience as one of the most valuable of their lives. They will gain added skill in the healing art, and they can feel that their efforts have been a wonderful contribution to the success of the armed forces. The nurses, both those who care for the men of the armed services, and those-who work, in the civilian hospitals in this country, are a wonderful body of women. Their patience and devotion have earned the gratitude of an uncounted number of people. Going Up .,Everything will continue to go,up.
