w*\ I« 7-$2-41* <ri *ll Why Were The Saints. Saints? "Why were the saints, saints? Because they were cheerful when it was difficult to be cheerful ; patient when it was difficult to be patient, and because they pushed on when they wanted to stand still, and kept silent when they wanted to be disagreeable. That was all. It was quite simple and always will be." This motto .hangs over my desk and is a daily reminder when thing's pile up and my temper begins ta fray at the edges. For the days of the saints are not past. The need for saintly people was never greater than it is today. ■fwToday we need cheerful people—those who can be cheerful when it is difficult to be so, who are more interested in bringing happiness and prosperity to others than in getting what they themselves -want. Today we need patient people.—those who can wait under difficulties, who do not need to rush through to the end, who do not have to have everything happen at once just as they want it. Today we need persevering people—those who will push on when they are so tired they want to stand still, who will carry through the task before them even when heart and body fail, who clo not give up under lire or criticism or complaint. Today we need thoughtful people as well as those who know when to talk and when to be still. We need agreeable people —-those who are trained in the habit of being kind and courteous even when tempted to be disagreeable. We need self controlled people—those who will not fall into the traps of hatred toward any group, whether it be of class or creed or color. - . j Call them saints if you will, it is those kind of people we need today, and it is the kind of sainthood that is within reach of every one of us. It is a daily task, a daily problem. Try it for one day, and the next, and the next. You may fail jf^ry now and then. I do. We all do—but, if we keep on try- fg, the effort will become a habit and we will find our problems solving themselves. Why were the saints, saints? Because *,they kept on living what they believed. It was quite simple and it always will be. What Every Decent American Knows A short time ago Dr. E. C. Nance, President of the University of Tampa, gave an address about racial and religious prejudice in this country. Like all other decent and intelligent people, he considers prejudice loathsome—a disease that can sicken any society to its roots. So—what do we do about it? We stand together in the defense of each other's rights 3ust as the responsible spokesmen of the three great faiths have told us to do. Dr. Nance quotes Cardinal Gibbons who, speaking 53 years ago at the Parliament of Religion in Chicago, declared, "Though we differ in faith, thank God we stand united on the platform of charity and benevolence. Let us do all we can in our day and generation in the cause of humanity. • Coming to our own generation he gives us the statement on inter-faith action of Archbishop Robert E. Lucy of San Antonio, and six other Catholic bishops, 'For the sake of »d and humanity, let us continue and extend collaboration those worthwhile movements that are calculated to hasten the day of enduring peace, justice, charity, and good will. ^Finally, there is a Statement of Archbishop Richard L. Gushing of Boston, "We shall always have to struggle to preserve what we have won. But the struggle will be easy it we love one another; love our neighbor, and love him irrespective of race, creed, or color." -"I have quoted at length from Catholic authorities on the subjects of brotherhood, democracy, and human rights, Dr. Nance said. "I could quote as many and as eloquent statements from great leaders of the Protestant and Jewish faiths. There is a common treasury of idealism oh these subjects, shared alike by all the major faiths in America, and by many fraternal orders, service clubs, civic organizations, veterans' groups, leaders in the fields of education, government, and industry." -Well said. Religion, like everything else constructive in American life, is on the side of inter-faith and inter-racial unity. Where do you stand? %afety for Pedestrians One of the dangers of modern life is that some pedestrians will fail to use sufficient care in crossing streets in centers where many cars are passing. "Some people are absorbed in whatever they are doing, or planning to do at that time. Or they are thinking about personal matters, or their own troubles and problems and the things they have been doing. The thought of some may be so centered on such suj beets, that they may start to cross some street without looking to see if cars are coming. 1 People should make it their habit on any street where cars are coming, to look both ways before crossing. Signal lights are placed at many points for the safety of the public, and some peoj^e fail to-gay, sufficient attention tq-thenu VOL. 23—No. 41 ■ NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 1947 $2.00 A YEA# North Canton American Legion Jubilee July 28-August 2 Warning of Infantile Paralysis Bays Given Ohio by Foundation Dog* days bring polio days, and the Infantile Paralysis Foundation warned today that the next three months will tell whether there will be an epidemic,in Ohio this year. So, far the news is encouraging. There were 39 cases reported, throughout the state as of | July 15 compared with 61 during the same period last year. However, the foundation i s keeping its fingers crossed. Of 718 cases last year, 518 - occurred during the months of August, September and October, with peaks of 194 in August and 214 in SeDtember. Summit County hadn't one case reported this year until this month when it had eight. Francis Strapp, state representative for the foundation, said there was no particular area .where the disease cropped up in the state so far this year. If and when the dreaded polio strikes he said, don't worry about expense, but get in touch with your local chapter of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. The symptoms may be severe enough to kill or so mild that a diagnosis is difficult, even for a doctor. Watch for headaches, an un- j explained fever, a cold, or even an upset stomach. When they persist and you're uncertain call a doctor —and when the doctor says polio call the foundation. Polio starts out rather mildly— sore throat, nausea, vomiting, maybe a slight fever—there may even be diarrhea or - constipation. Tremor and trembling of the hands and other parts of the body and pain and stiffness in the neck and back are more alarming symptoms to -watch for. Any one or even all of these symptoms may be absent in the patient but when poliomyelitis is known to be present in the community or when 'a person is known to have been exposed these signs call for the immediate attention of a physician. There is no specific means of -warding off the disease because science doesn't know yet exactly how it's spread. Generally they say not to expose yourself—don't get overtired, avoid chilling, keep clean, avoid removal of-tonsils and adenoids during the polio epidemic season, and don't swim in polluted water. Even if the water in a swimming pool is safe the exposure of children to crowds is sometimes harmful. The foundation says little is to be gained if a community closes schools and swimming pools during this critical period if children are allowed, to mingle with] crowds of people in streets andi stores. ' The infantile paralysis virus is one of the hardest to kill known to science. It can -withstand drying, can'be subjected without destruction to many antiseptics and germicides, and it can be subject to temperatures far below freezing and retain its vitality. The best thing it remember about polio is that there is no cure for it. Prevention is the best and only cure. What they do for a patient today is prevent unnecessary complications and restore maximum use of impaired nerves or muscles. Fire Chief Mohler Warns Vacationists To Use Care Make sure that your home will not catch on fire while you are on vacation, Fire Chief Harry .Mohler advised residents of North Canton and vicinity who are contemplating vacation trips. He suggested the following precautions: Leave a key to your residence with a neighbor and ask the neighbor to check the home every day or so; send the fire department a postcard informing it when you will be away and who has the key; check with gas and electric companies to ascertain if certain appliances should be turned off; disconnect heavy duty appliances; be sure no hot ashes are left in stoves and no lighted cigarets are left in the house; remove all oily or paint soaked rags which might cause spontaneous ignition. Chief Mohler urged vacationists to take an appoved fire extinquish- er in their auto for emergency use and advised care in the use of kerosene stoves and oil lanterns with which many summer cottages are equipped.

Two-Faced Owls MOLINE, ILLINOIS—Special CFI Photo To THE SUN from Leslie Swanson—Alumium owls, such as the above illustration, have been developed by two city officials in Decatur, Illinois, and used successfully in combatting crows and the starling nuisance. The owls, which are equipped with faces on both front and back, are used to drive away the starlings and -strangely, to attract crows. The metal "wise" birds were designed to drive away about a million starlings, which had practically taken over the city of Decatur, Illinois, this year, and they have subsequently been used successfully by hunters as decoys for crows. Crows are attracted in huge numbers, as their chief sport is heckling solitary owls which they may spot in a tree.

Four Airlines Sign 25-Year Leases With Akron-Canton Memorial Airport Four major airlines have announced the signing of 25-year lease for field rights, landing privileges and space in the administration building of the Akron-Canton Memorial Airport. The lease which was signed by American, Capital, Eastern and United Airlines, was negotiated with the airport board of trustees and will become effective the day the airlines move into the temporary administration building. The airlines' move to the new field from Akron Municipal Airport is subject to the approval of the Civil Aeronautics Board. A hearing on ths matter was held early in May and an examiner's report is expected soon. The city of Akron has been fighting the change vigorously. With the lease signed by the airlines it will now go back to the boa-r.d^ of trustees for their signature and then is subject to the approval and execution by the boards of commissioners for both Stark and Summit Counties. The airport board is expected to sign the lease at it's meeting July 25th which will then be forwarded to the commissioners. Rental cost for the airlines will be figured by the number of trips per month, at a declining rate as the number of trips increase. Weight of the planes also is taken into consideration. The Akron - Canton Memorial Airport is located 14.7 miles from Akron and 9 miles from Canton. It has three 5,600-foot runaways, a length more than adequate to take care of the largest four-eng- ined planes now in service by the airlines. A temporary administration building will be used by the airlines until a permanent structure is completed. The airlines expect to build a separate building for the handling of freight and express. Work on this structure, which would be just southeast of the admhiistration building, has been postponed pending the C.A.B. decision. The airport office, which has been located at Greentown, has been moved to the field. It has telephone connections with both Akron and Canton. However, no airline reservations can be made there. Bookings can be placed with the airline's ticket' office in Akron or at the John Jacob Agency in Canton.
