jj tpmmm+m0mm*mm**V VOL. 23—,No. 8 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 194C $2.00 A YEAR Christmas Parties Highlight December Club Meetings With the first snow of the year December bring*s that 'Christmas feeling' and Clubs in North Canton and vicinity- are turning their December meetings into gala Christmas partiesv Your Work How do you work? Do you finish what you start to do? Do you have to do things over? Do1 you work because you have to—or to fill up time ? It was Carlyle who wrote "Genius is the infinite capacity for taking pains." And it is that ability, that willingness of spirit which is even more important than manual dexterity .or mental skills. Jr All work is as seeds sown; it grows and spreads like the ripples from a stone thrown into a pool. We do not know against what bank it may spend itself, or whom and what it may affect. Slipshod work hurts first the doer. First in having to redo —for redoing working is staying in a rut, is not progressing r learning. -Second, in the weakening of ability to do a job right. Carelessness is a habit-forming drug, insidious in its sapping of morale, but deadly in its effects . The work that each of us do, the work that is before us, is our job, to be done by us. We.must prove that we do it better than anyone else. But there is another thing to be remembered. Dr. Stelzle brought it out in an article once years ago: "The day's work stands for a socialized effort, which has become possible only because others for the past have contributed their share to our effort. To these we owe a debt of gratitude. There is only one way in which we may pay this debt we owe them—we have the^pjiyilege of building upon the foundation laid by our forefathers, so that other millions may be blessed because" of our own labors. "This mayseem idealistic, but the law of progress demands this of us, unless we are content to become parasites, living from the labor of others. In a sense, every man is a parasite, who is. mlling:J;oa*£eeive the henegis which hss?e- accrued as the result of others' labors, without contributing his share to the common good." * • This is* as true today as it was when it was written. The way to get ahead—both materially- and spiritually—no matter what task confronts you,, is to do the day's work as ^4hou*gh it were the 'only job in the yorld—the one thing by Jvwhicli y<Ju would be judged: "With good will doing service, as ^to the Lord, and not unto men" so wrote Paul. Lei Us Say Grace Many of us were brought up in homes where the fine old custom of saying Grace prevailed and we learned to express . our gratitude daily to the Giver of all Gifts. "In our homes we say Grace" 'meant something very real and fine. Saying Grace is a custom that should be part of our lives today. We have much to be thankful for. The trees are glowing scarlet and gold. Nature has decked herself in the spirit of* Thanksgiving for the fruits of the sumnier seasori). If you Walk in the country, beauty faces you wherjever you turn. But it is up to you whether you see the autumn glory as a fruition of the harvest of summer or only -as a "final defiance to the threat of approaching winter. REBECCA CLASS OF ZION REFORMED TO HOLD CHRISTMAS PARTY The Rebecca Class of the Zion Evangelical and Reformed Church will hold their annual Christmas party on Thursday evening, December 5, in the social rooms of the church. Music will be furnished by the Woman's Club Chorus and a playlet will be put on by members of the class. Beth Shorb will have" the leading- role.

Mrs. C. R. Jackson and Mrs. W. C. Elson .are chairman of the program committee and they will bo assisted by Mrs. Ralph Willis and Mr*. DeVere Kaufman. MARY SCHNEIDER MISSIONARY SOCIETY OF 1ZION REFORMED The Mary Schneider Missionary Society of the Ziori Evangelical and Reformed Church will hold a pot-luck dinner in the' dining room of the Church on Tuesday evening, December 10, at 6:30 o'clock. The program is in charge of Mrs. C. W. Studer arid Mrs. Clay Elson. Scrapbooks made by members of the society will be brought to this meeting and will be given to the children's wards of the local hospitals. The group also will send a box of children's Christmas gifts to the Winnebago Indian Mission School at Neillsville, Wisconsin. Each rhember is asked to bring a guest. LADIES LITERARY CLUB TO HOLD HOLIDAY PARTY The annual holiday banquet of the Ladies Literary will be held on Monday, Deeeriiber 9, a't The Pines. Chairman will be 'Mrs. R. M. Harpold,, assisted by Mrs. C. E. Howes, Mrs.' D. W. Roush, Mrs. M. A. Cossabodm and Sirs. E-.'B. Schiltz. The' Club met Monday evening, ' November 25; iri the home 'Of Mrs. 'Charles Howes- on the •'Canton-Akron Road. The program consisted of "Thanksgiving.-Birth"'by Mrs. Albert Conrad, "Highlights of Thanksgiving" by Mrs. Frank H6over and "Is There a Santa Clans" by Mrs; John Christman. Roll call was answered by a Christmas Custom. There are those who say "Why should we celebrate? We lave peace—but there is no peace. There is still confusion abroad in the world. We have nothing to be thankful for— yet:'*5. No doubt there were repiners and Doubting Thomases at the first Thanksgiving held on these shores. There were those who.said "Why should we be thankful? We face a long and desolate winter,, with no way of escape—no ships will arrive. , There is only the merciless ocean before us and the dread wilderness and fierce savages behind us. We have nothing to. be thankful for!" In the days of the Pilgrims, there were those who felt gratitude that the Lord had thus far preserved them, that He had given them a bountiful harvest- that He had shown mercy to them and carried them through their trials and tribulations, and that they, in the words of David, should "Give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever". So today, the great majority of our people, too are saying in gratitude, "We thank Thee for the desire for permanent peace that is in the hearts of Thy People. We thank Thee for the first faltering steps that haye been taken toward this goal. We thank Thee for the. opportunities that lie before us. Help us to rebuild a world so that we can, as -Thou destined "it, live together as brothers. Give us the spirit of understanding that ** may live and work together in peace and good will." Training Through Toys It is predicted that .the. children's toys of this year, cpntain a great many that will help the youngster to use his mind and Jus' hands'. 'Thus' they willbe useful in developing the abilities and faculties of. children. Whatever skill, is .obtained in handling a toy will make the youngsters able to take up more easily the "tasks of adult'Iife. In so'far asthey use "their minds, they'jgain new powers of observation and "judgment: . __ Children, feel, happy .when they .imagine .themse.ly.es as doing the things that adult people do. They dream as they ply their^littleshb'vels'an'd'f>a-ls in their sandpiles'that they are real grown-ups, or as they build their little roads or make houses out of blocks. Toys are a great blessing to children. LEGION AUXILIARY TO MEET DECEMBER 12 The American Legion Auxiliary will hold their Christmas Tea on Thursday, December 12, at th<- Community Building.

Women's C!uh Met December 2 Despite Christmas shopping and cold weather about 50 members turned out for the white elephant sale Monday afternoon, December 2, of the North Canton Women's Club. Mrs. Homer Young, ways and means chairman, presented Mrs. Milo Bixler, who was dressed like a man and served as auctioneer. She very ably conducted the auction and popcorn and donuts were sold during the meeting- with tea and coffee furnished by the committee. It was a very profitable and enjoyable afternoon. "At the brief business meeting preceding- the sale Mrs. Harlev Myers, first vice president, presided due to the absence of the president, Mrs. E. J. Cathon. Mrs. Orrin Gill and Miss Clara M. Gross were receptionists. The next meeting will be Decemher 16 at which the Junior 33. Sonnhalter pitched one to Jack Heckaman good for 18 yards and Shaub followed with another to Thompson at Mklfield and he fought his way to the Army 38 before being dropped. MeTe the Army line stiffened and a fourth down pass interception stalled the drive. Army then swung into high gear again and drove 46 yai*ds to pay dirt even though the total yardage was longer than that since two 15 yard penalties were mixed in the seven plays needed to score. The payoff came on a sleeper play when, with the ball on the Navy 26, Jim Peters wafted a pass into the arms of Stover on the S, and the latter went over standing* up. Joe Guenther added the extra point on a place kick and the half ended with Army in front 13-0. Only two plays were necessary for Army to grab their third score late in the third quarter. With the ball on the 36, McDowell picked -up. eight then fired a pass to Bill Mandrell over the goal, the play covering 26 yards. Army also threatened on three other occasions, penetrating to the eight in the second) and to the 9 and 6 in the fourth, but Navy was equal to the .task of stopping them. Army also had the edge in first downs, 10 to 5. ARMY* Pos. Mohler io \ CHICAGO, ILL.—One of the most applauded features of the Chi- | cago Horse Show was the six-pony hitch exhibited by'a candy co'm- * pany. Hardly larger than big dogs, the six Shetland ponies pra'ne'e'd into the ring with larger hitches and stole the show with their fast ; moving performance. Public appearances are no 'novelty for the prinies. During the .war they traveled more than 2,300 miles on a ' war bond tour, and they regularly take part in charity .'and community events in the Chicago area as well as in horse shows. Army Blasts Navy 19-0 In Turkey Day Clash Rugged Army Line Proves Difference Between Teams As Returned Veterans Again Don Football Togs While there were no Doc'Blan- chard's or Glen Davis' evident on the field Thanksgiving morning, the Army pushed across scores in each of the first three periods to completely smother the Navy 19-0 before a crowd of approximately 1,000 on the North Canton high school football field. With the two squads composed of returned veterans, most of whom are or were employed by the Hoover company and coached by two Hoover employees, Jim Hanel and Stanley Blunk, the boys put up a real fight from start to finish and while the Navy was unable to muster any real scoring threats, they staved off three other deep penetrations by the rugged Army squad. Army served early notice that they were going to be a • tough team to beat as they tallied the first time" they gained possession of the "ball. With their forward Wall tearing huge holes in the Navy line, it took ithem just five plays to go 30 yards for their first tally. With Dick .Stover, Joe Peters and Patsy White rambling for sub- ai^Bittai, yardage every time they jatraufthe leather, they drove to Receives Letter Ai College -Junior Glass of Local Stores Turn Out Window Lights and Signs North Canton's business district took 'on a, w&rtiine appearance as practically every electric sign and store front wras darkened in compliance with an order of the Civilian. Produc- * tion Administration in Washington to dim store Jights arid signs and, other lights, except for essential purposes. : The 'brownout'- -was ordered 'Because of the stoppage of mining "in the soft coal fields. . As the order, which b'ecam'e'effective last-week, efttered .its'second week the CPA in Washington..- warned dimout violators that continued infraction's of regulations may lead to criminal'prosecutions. The new Hummel sign, which has recently been erected remains darkened as do the lights atop the Hoover Company. Instead of (the brightly lighted Christmas windows, thanks-to the coal strike nothing but darkness greets the passersby. The street lights in North Canton need no darkening as they are continually in a brownout stag* and barely light the ground beneath the poles. So North Canton is completely in a brownout until the coal strike is over at least. To Present P3a# The Junior Class of Greentown High School will present their play "Grandad Steps 'Out," a comedy of three acts by Felicia Metcalfe, on Saturday evening, December 7, at 8. o'clock in the school auditorium.

He has been invited, regularly for years, to show, his paintings at the Carnegie International Shews held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is known as one of the outstanding animal painters of the world. The spirit of such pictures is ascribed to his earlv life in the country.

Mrs. Keller has travelled in Eur- one, Spain and Latin America. These travels have influenced his vork greatly. He is noted for his circus pictures. Interest of visitors to the show Thus far has centered largely on an oil, ",New Shoes for Show" in which Mr. Keller displays his rnan- ner of expressive realizm.

For the first time in history since records have been kept no snow fell during the month of November.' But December in an effort to make up for her sister months delinquency* started with the first snow of the season on the very first day of the month. After a coy approach, winter actually appeared Sunday, hig-h winds accompanied the snow and for a little while it looked like we might be in for it right at the beginning. Though cold and biting winds greated Stark County during Nov- - errib'er, it was a little warnfer and a little drier than usual according to the weatherman, D. O. Corner, North Canton's official weather observer. A new temperature record was * set on the third of November, when the mercury climbed to a high of 76 degrees here in North Canton.

The work that each of us do, the work that is before us, is

This is* as true today as it was when it was written. The
way to get ahead—both materially- and spiritually—no matter what task confronts you,, is to do the day's work as
^4hou*gh it were the 'only job in the yorld—the one thing by
