VOL. 22—No. 52 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1945 $2.00 PER YEAR Living Together As the judge in the divorce,court said: "It used' to be that people were married for better or for worse, but mostly now it. seems to be just for the better. They won't stand the worse." .You,haye to put up with all sorts of things to live with other people. It takes team work, both sides being willing to work together. It means, you have to think of the oher fellow's rights as your responsibility. * , Each person, or each group, or each nation, always believes itself- the standard by which all should be measured. Each believes it is right and that others must conform to that standard' of Tightness. But when people begin-to work together, they learn to know that there are varying shades of Tightness. They begin to assume that their's is not the only side. : Living together either as individuals or as nations, requires, understanding—"-and what is more,, a willingness to understand. Interdependencyidoes not mean the other fellow must . do all the giving. Relationships must be reciprocal if they are to endure. Danger does not lie so ,much in what people believe—but in theuncompromisingiiess with-which they hold those beliefs. It is much, easier to be critical than correct. The strength, of any lasting association, whether it be between .individuals ;pr nations lies-in agreement upon fundamental ideals^ m "willingness to concede to the other equal rights and: opportunities, and in the mutual recognition of in- terdependeliije.'*. Jii^hort, and to. be very trite—it needs the strict application o$**fche Golden. Rule, for human kindness is tne^ou'nda^n'^t^i-Pgl)ri"e,artn.-. N S-Sgt. Paul Sponseller Writes Parents fromJapan-Uncensored Mr. and Mrs. Cai-1 Sponseller of 124 Portage received their first uncensored letter from their son Paul since he has been overseas last week. S-Sgt.. Sponseller, who went into service May 20,1943, received training at Keesler Field, Miss., Chan- ute Field, 111., Bear Field, Ind., and Fort Bragg, N. C. with: the infantry. He is now in Tokyo, having been overseas since May 28, 1945. His wife, Dorothy, is living with her parents in North Canton. * ► Exhausted Servicemen ..A letter from a serviceman who has served in the Pacific theater of war speaks of the • feeling of exhaustion from ■which' he was suffering since the war ended. He said' he had been working 12 to 16 hours a day for a long.time, and had gpne beyond the limits of his strength. Now he feels the letdown after this .tremendous expenditure of energy. -No-doubt there are many who feel similarly weary. One can, hope that -they*, will be.able to take good long, periods, of rest.. The- country deeply, values the devotion that led them into, these .intense efforts.,. It accomplished great results for the cause,, and helped.tp. speed victory, A man, may b able to work, beyond his, powers ioK.a. time,by the jintensity of his entjiusiasni, <but the time, comes./when he-has. to. go slow and recuperate.- We:can hope,„for such men a speedy and complete return of. strength and energy. The letter, which is dated September 10, 1945, Yokohama, Japan, reads as follows: "Dear Mom, Dad and all, Am finally getting* a chance to •write and this letter will be uncensored so will tell you a little about what happened since I've been over here. We never could say much. I came over on the U. S. S. Co- pera, a Merchant Marine ship. We stopped at the Marshall Islands for ten hours and then shoved off to] the Carolina Islands. We stayed there about 14 hours. It took us twenty days to hit Manila. From. Manila we went on the U. S. S. Sherman and took 36 hours to hit Cebu. Was on Cebu two days and they took .us out in, the hills, that is why I couldn't write for awhile then, remember? We made amphibious landings along the beach pushing the Nips inland. When I said we, were training .you know what I meant- We had some rough days. We took in about two thousand Nips when they signed the peace terms. Had a formal surrender. Then they told us we were shoving off to Japan. We.were the second Troops on the.island and I consider it a real honor. - We made a landing with full equipment and had enough "ammo to sink a Higgins boat. Our machine gun squad ceme in on the first wave and was a real sight. There was no opposition and we . marched through Yokohama and | are now bivouacing outside of the citv. We are to move on to Tokyo in a few_days so you probably won't hear from me for awhile again. We have had no mail, clean clothes or hot. chow for about a month now and I am, a shadow. Feel ok., but just no meat on ime, you folks .probably wouldn't recognize-me. If we ever get set up maybe we will get a break. Came from Cebu on the U. S. S. Bland, took us 7 days, about 1300 men on one ship—sure was some trip. The Japs have a fairly modern way of living, Yokohama is a pretty town and reminds iof a big city in the States. The people as a whole, seem fairly glad it's over, but the Nips who were fighting* seem to resent,the G. I.'s. The climate here is cool and sure" makes a fellow feel better;, we all had jungle rot and skin diseases, but this weather will cure it. Can't imagine being.. here myself—-.never thought I would, be one of .the first in. The city was pretty well bombed, but .nothing like Manila., The Nips are real small people and make us laugh to' see thm. waddle along like kids. Can't, tell the young from the old. Will write more later— Love to all, Your son, Paul." District Men Are Discharged From Service Recently The following men from this district have been discharged from the service recently: S/Sgt.

Hallowe'en Vandals And Parents Are Warned By Mayor Price Mayor Guy Price warns that Hallowe'en vandalism will not be tolerated in North Canton this year. Parents will be held responsible for their children's actions, and will be required to.pay for any damages they cause. Mayor Price also stated today that he is prepared to enforce the nine o'clock curfew if the vandalism does not come to a halt immediately. A great deal of concern has. been expressed by residents over the increase in time in which hallowe'en vandalism has been reported in recent years, and the extent of depredation in some cases. "It's getting so", one official said recently, "that Hallowe'ening starts a month -before October 31 and last a month afterward." Officials emphasize that they have no intention of stopping Hallowe'en "fun." But fun does not include smashing windows, - destroying property, and endangering lives. Parents will be fully accountable if their .children are found responsible for any acts such as these. Residents are also asked to. cooperate in catching any vandals, and to turn .them over to Village officials at once • so that action can be taken against them. Grass ^Pires Unlawful Without Burning Permit With .the occurrence of frosts throughput most of Ohao:in the last .few days-.foi-est, and .grass-.fire hazards have greatly increased,' according to John. A.. Bastian, fire control forester of Ohio. In view of prevailing local conditions, Bastian has asked the Sun to remind persons residing) in rura.1 secitons pf Northern Stark County that .burning permits.are requir- fire wardens, several of whom reside in each .township. Specific safety requirements are printed on each permit; failure to observe these rules renders the permit null and void, and constitutes a violation of Ohio's forest fire laws. An interesting sidelight on I Ohio's fire .problem, says Bastian, is that despite the end of the war, manpower to control fires remains Navy Mothers Hold Covered Dish Dinner Meeting November 3 At the last 'meeting of the Navy Mothers Club, it was decided that next meeting would be a covered dish dinner, and would be held at the Community Building on November 3, at 6:30.

Dr. Joseph B. Hunter Speaks At Christian Church Meeting Dr. Joseph B. Hunter will be the guest speaker at a men's dinner meeting at the Community Christian Church Wednesday, October 24 at 6:30. His subject will be "After the War in Asia." The class will be host to all the men of the church. Dr. Hunter is national director of peace and race relations in the department of social welfare of the United Christian Missionary iSociety, Indianapolis. He had active front line service as a chaplain in the first world war. He was a mis- j sionary in Japan from 1920 to 1927, serving under the United Christian Missionary Society. The following thirteen years were given to a pastorate in Little Rock, Arkansas. During that period he spent the summer of 1934 in Manchuria and China studying political trends. The United Christian Missionary. Society sent Dr. Hunter , to Japan in the spring of 1941 to serve as an associate and counselor to Japanese Disciple ministers. He was there in the midst of developing war conditions until fall, returning to America by way of China just prior to the outbreak of war between Japan and the United States.

"Unless we do what we can to help' thcni, we may lose next winter what we won at such a terrible cost last spring. We must help to the limit of our strength." The fund also supports many home agencies with which we are all familiar. The Travelers' Aid Stations are located in nearly every bus and train station in. the country. Without them, many people would actually be lost. They . offer sympathetic ,. and" efficient help to everyone of all ages and all creeds. The need for the continuance of the USO cannot be emphasized too strongly. Large occupation forces must be kept in both Europe and Japan. Men who are not fighting need even more recreation of the * type the USO provides. The same holds true for the millions of servicemen who will use USO Clubs connected with separation centers. With the biggest shipping job • in maritime history ahead of us, United Seaman's Service will have to help tha seaman who is sick or who gets bad news from home. Governor Lausche, who is ■ Honorary Chairman of the Ohio Division of the National War Fund, made the following statement in urging all citizens, of the state to support the campaign. He said: "Let us not be so carried away by our rejoicing over the defeat of our enemies that we consider our job finished. Our ultimate goal is lastng peace. That, we dare nc say. we Jjaxe, whiJLe .there is .siiC, great distress and confusion in th»3. world. ''" "As an individual and as Governor of Ohio, I make the appeal to you to make this National War Fund drive a success. Here in Ohio, we are asking- for $7,205,098. It is a huge sum of money, it is true, but it'is no larger than the hearts of the people of Ohio. Let us be generous in victory!" The fund also supports social a- gencies, organizations whose job it is to make good citizens*- out of possible juvenile delinquei<s; welfare groups who care for children of broken homes. Remember that ill and handicapped children will always need help—war! or no war. Sherwood Snyder, Raymond Nelius, Clarence Rohrer, James Durkin are the captains for North Canton's local drive. When they contact you—be generous! . Optimists Vote $100 To Stadium Fund At the October 10 dinner meeting of the Optimist Club at the Community Building, Mr. Oliver Kuhn, county commissioner was' the guest speaker. There was a large attendance at the meeting as which several guests and new members were present. The club voted a $100 donatioi. for the Memorial Stadium Drive. The next^^neeting will be a closed ITieeting with an informal program. Woman's Glub To Go To Players Guild The meeting of North Canton^, Woman's Club has been postponed until October 24 at which time members will sell tickets at the Players Guild Theater in Canton for the Irish comedy, "Is Life Worth Living." Mrs. Paul Kindy and Mrs. Park Powell are in charge. J. W. Lesh, 78, Retires From The Business He Built Since October 15, there's been a genial, kindly figure missing from our midst; when we walk into the little white flower shop on Orchard street, we find ourselves wondering where the little man with the twinkling eyes, the ready wit, and the helpful suggestions can be keeping himself. We try to think back and remember if there's ever been, another time when we've walked into his shop,] and not seen Mr. Lesh there, and we conclude wonderingly that we haven't. And no wonder—for though Mr. Lesh, who is now. 78, is .a native of Indiana, he caro.e to North Canton in 1880, married here, and has raised his family, and 'his. flower shop, here.
