BLOWING KfS TOP / On Growing Up I 1 A> mature person is one who can carry responsibility not merely today or tomorrow, nor next week nor next month, but month after month and year after year. But along with this sense of everlasting responsibility must go a sense of f orebearance, of tolerance. My father in speaking of certain farm leaders used to say, "They are the good old wheel horses." In other words they carried responsibility year after year. They knew the common objective. Nobody needed to tell , them what to do. When young they had early learned what field ought to be ploughed and when. They carried this responsibility straight -through the season and so as young men they "came to be looked upon as mature people and after they beearne farm owners the community placed responsibility on them. Today as regional, group and national conflicts multiply, we discover it is not sufficient .merely to carry responsibility year "after year, but it is also essential to catch the other fellow's'point of view.; ' A great German mathematician had carved on his tombstone the simple saying "One must turn things around." The capacity to look at the problem from the other man's point of view is perhaps the most needed quality in the world today. ' Tolerance need-not-make us wishy-washy. As a matter of fact any person who is used to carrying responsibility year after/year, will never be wishy-washy. AIL of this means merely .that we need now a widespread educational program in certain' character fundamentals — those character fundamentals which will cause us to become mature in an; individual, in-a group and in a national sense. After every" great war there is <a widespread tendency to revert to, childish habits. A certain amount of this kind of thing may be forgiveable in the^first few months after a great"war..Tri"its)extreme""fdrm-it iff found in the excesses of the peacetime-celebration of the Day of Armistice. It is time now to put away these excesses which are characteristic of childhood. '. This education cannot come too soon if .we are to save those American values which-we want most today as we confront/the possibility of the biggest boom and the most serious bust this nation has ever seen. ta)L. 23—No. l NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1946 $2.00 A YEAR Halloween Street Dance Planned For Young and Old by Jaycees Young and old alike will have a chance to celebrate Hallowe'en in a-regular old fashioned manner on October 31.

Jaycees Give $100 Scholarship lo North Ganton Students Agreement With Russia According to., many of one leaders,', influential people in' many fields, and average citizens, the most important issue before the American people is that reaching a reasonable agreement with the soviet government of Russia on pending - issues. The most vital difference between the -United States and Russia, is as to the future of the smaller countries of eastern, and southeastern" Europe: The Russian government apparently feels that it has the right for its own security to have a principal influence in the development of these countries adjacent to itsiown territory." It i'eels that it will'not" be safe if those countries should establish governments unfriendly to Russia, and it seems to feel that its own security depends on the establishment of .^governments in those countries that will work harmoniously. If with ^Russia. -- ' : The American people feel that human rights and the prin^ ciples of liberty call vfor the establishment of free govern-: ments in those countries!"with freedom of the press and pub-| lie discussion, and the right of their people to choose whatever political and economic system they prefer. It is most earnestly, to be'hoped that further discussion will eittable. these differing points of view to be reconciled in somer treasonable way. A war between the United States and Russia, would be a calamity far surpassing that of World War Ii: With our possession of the atomic bomb, and the probability that Russia wilfsooli be able to produce and use such bombs, the results of such a war will be too. terrible to contemplate. It,cannot .be permitted to happen; ' Fire Kills More Than War i -,', Since 1920,- more Americans have lost their lives by fire than in all the "devastating battles of World War II, according to the Chamber of Commerce of the United States. In the last decade, 100,000 victims have been claimed by*fire, and 170,000.more haye^been seriously burned, many of them- Csfigured for life. During,, every week the American people can effectively •event fire by following a few simple rules. Ninety per cent tff all fires; big and little, are preventable. The National Fire Waste Council offers these-suggestions to the homeowner and business man: " Check from cellar to attic for rubbish—and get rid' of it. Check heating systems. Ke'ep ashes in metal containers and shield fireplaces with screens. Don't smoke in bed, and keep plenty of ash-trays handy. Don't clean your clothes at home with flammable agents.,Never bring'gasoline into the house for any purposei'Keep matches away from children. Replace frayed electric cords and defective electric appliances. There's nothing difficult on costly about these rules. And their observance would;saves this country thousands of lives and' hundreds of millions of (dollars woi-th of property, every year. The big job' of fire prevention simply consists of all of us doings-little :jobs regularly and conscientiously.

Frosts in September and a Two Months Drouth Hits Harvest Early frost registered in Stark County during the month of September combined with a two month drouth cut the corn harvest,a.bushel an acre, and soybean production was 3,000,- 000 bushels below last years harvest. The tang of Autumn which should have begun this month really started a month ago in the middle of September," .when due to .the lack of rain trees began to turn color _and drop their leaves. On September 12 the 'thermometer •took a, hose .dive^ arid, stoQil at 55 aeg-rees though a slight drizzle saved the crops from an early frost. The heat that came at the be- gining of SeptembefTlooked like it might have come in time to save some of the farmer's corn, though the joy that the farmers experienced was short lived, "for before the week was out cooler weather returned. 7 New low records were set when the thermometer dropped to. 31 .degrees at the home of North Canton weatherman D. O. Corner, and lawns and shrubbery were covered with frost .and ice formed in' exposed places in tlie gardens. A pea soup fog held the area in its grip for several mornings "and caused several accidents, though the immediate territory was not covered with as dense a fog as neighboring towns experienced. On September 30 the first snowfall of the year- was registered when big flakes were seen to fall during a rainfall. That was /the finishing touch for a month of en- cehtric weather, which saw the mercury tie the all-time high of 86 degrees on one day and nose dive to 42 degrees the next 'morning. Total rainfall was measured at .26 of an inch by D. O. Corner, although too- light to do much good in relieving the two month drouth, it was still the heaviest' 24 hour fall recorded in September. 'Last month averaged "about normal in temperature despite the fact .that several days . were -unseasonably hot. The montfr's: average was ,63.95 while the mean monthly average is 64.3 degrees. Total rainfall ;.was 1.- tember since 1937, normal precipitation for the month is 3.10 inches. Rev. L. H.

Gen. LeMay who flew in from Patterson Field, Dayton, at 1:30 p. m. in his B-25 "Billy Mitchell" medium bomber, keynoted the program when he declared: "This is _ an air age. When we went to school, we couldn't take advantage of the roundness of the globe. We had no vehicle to make us realize the value of. its roundness. The war gave us that vehicle —aircraft which can fly over the polar regions." He pointed out that New York and China formerly were separated by 12,000 air miles. Today this distance has shrunk to 7,800. San Francisco and Moscow were 8,400 miles apart, now it is 6,000 miles. America must, take a different viewpoint of the world since all the nations we ever fought now can "make routine flights to the U. SI, raid us and still have many gallons ' of gasoline left, he said. '"One of the chief reasons for our victory over the Axis was the space between us that could not ,be spanned," Gen. LeMay said. 26' inches -making iV-we"aries'tvSep- "Twice America; has been the bul wark against aggression. Next time an attacker will know that- to win he must knock out the United States first." Canton and Akron now are Just as vulnerable as any seaport city, he maintained. He made a plea for a strong air arm, urging that only an air force could wipe out a nation's factories. "Heavy fighter protection and antiaircraft can not stop bombers," Gen. LeMay said. "Our raids were never stopped that way. "Planes could be bombed from an airfield but others would take their place. The only way to defeat the enemy is to hit its industry." At 1:45 p. m. the flag was raised and the ceremonies were begun with Appellate Judge Arthur W. Doyle of Akron presiding. The field was turned over to County Commissioners Oliver Kuhn of Stark and Ralph C|. Kibler of Summit by Earl C: Heist, chief of engineering and construction for the CAA.

"If parents are not interested enough to prevent such acts, we will take steps to make sure the guilty parties are punished."
