MStfhWt*?'*' - ■"■•- M-r* €LecifvWy04nmjr The Spirit of Democracy There is such a thing' as the right of association. It is intended to bring men'together. But, today it is being used to separate them. It is being" used to prevent some Americans, solely.;pn account of their race, religion, or ancestry, from Hv- ingr'iii'spmerieighborhbdds,* joining some fraternities, working •m'sojne7occ'upations, attending some colleges^'being mem- l^i-of^6me;clubsl .THjis is :a disease of democracy which in tinie can'"de^if^y-ti^djisfitutijbns.- X- , "77-,;: "■ " For,^erms^fr>&^ attitude toward life, a thing of the spirit-*7lt:is^wa^';)c)f' living which "regards men as sacred in their persons MSipuiT respect to what they' are by birth, race, or religion. It is an affirmation by all of us that all nien must have equal opportunity—that the good we desire for oursel^e^fethe^ood we want others to ha-ve'. Denabcracy'is a passion for justice—a loathing for injustice—aFstrohg moving purpose which rejoices to see men succeed and 'help_"th'em to. Democracy consists—not in the right of-the strong to_claim and" take, by force, advantages for themselves. Democracy strives to open the doo.r of opportunity to the least privileged, to give encouragement to the dispirited and hope to the desperate—to reward the brave and daring, and to advance the virtuous of every race, religion, class, and national origin. America is; and has been, a great nation—not because it has offered rare prospects "of success to some—but because it has-dedicated itself to opening the way of fulfillment to all. .It isn't the desire of a true'American to" use his rights for drarwdn|£a efrde^about himself .into which none- but a select fe^tnay enler. __l;_nie=__r_r_rican looks upon his rights as the means for, bringing himself into association" with others from.whom — without those rights — he might have been sibajjatedl-. •-_..-'.*... ... ♦«■» Our.strength, is great in proportion to the Unity of, our people^ih the degree to which all associate together, defend each other, know each bth'er, respect- each other—and each ofher's race and reiijgitih. 'Where the conditions are present for cooperation our right of .association is not intended for breaking bur nation up intr numerous, small groups. The right of association is intended t<3 breakdown barriers, where the common good is concerned, by enabling people of different races, religions, classes, and national origins to^work arid rejoice' together. - We so usedZ'tlie"Wght of; association'to'conquer the American Tvilderness-^tame our^'swift rivers—cultivate our soil— Miild our cities and towns—and fight our wars. No single group of Americans did this*. All Americans did it/together. They used their right of association^—hot £6r makihgTA&er- ida a land of many groups each unknown" to" the other—out for;uniting their common strength for the common good. This is the spirit of democracy without which there can be no democracy at all. . The Study of Politics ,'With a national election coming in 1948, it is an excellent and most useful th^ig'rif "pteopIe.^wiH/."devote more time to a study-of "political and government. questions/It is sometimes remftrked that great numbers of men do not show as great an'interest in.political^questions as was common in former ■jjjps.

Or, and fVirs* ervice emergency needs'. In 1947 the National Foundation aided" our neighboring County, Summit, .during their terrible epidemic period, to the extent of over ?100,000.00 plus the services of special doctors, nurses and any equipment at their command that would relieve the cituation. Last year the Canton Chapter again faced an emergency by assuming full financial responsibility of forty-seven new cases at -a cost of over 13,000.00 to date.. Experience proves that in most cases the early period of illness'isr'the" least expensive; therefore, sin<S_*%ome~ of these new" cases are serious" and still are hospitalized, heavy expense may continue for some time. Canton must be prepared to meet the expense of those who-are-still hospitalized and whatever emergencies that may arise in the future, therefore, your dimes and dollars cannot be spent for a more deserving cause.

The Spirit of Democracy
There is such a thing' as the right of association. It is intended to bring men'together. But, today it is being used to
separate them. It is being" used to prevent some Americans,
solely.;pn account of their race, religion, or ancestry, from Hv-
ingr'iii'spmerieighborhbdds,* joining some fraternities, working •m'sojne7occ'upations, attending some colleges^'being mem-
l^i-of^6me;clubsl .THjis is :a disease of democracy which in
tinie can'"de^if^y-ti^djisfitutijbns.- X- , "77-,;: "■ "
For,^erms^fr>&^ attitude toward life, a thing of the
spirit-*7lt:is^wa^';)c)f' living which "regards men as sacred in
their persons MSipuiT respect to what they' are by birth,
race, or religion. It is an affirmation by all of us that all nien
must have equal opportunity—that the good we desire for
oursel^e^fethe^ood we want others to ha-ve'.
Denabcracy'is a passion for justice—a loathing for injustice—aFstrohg moving purpose which rejoices to see men succeed and 'help_"th'em to. Democracy consists—not in the right
of-the strong to_claim and" take, by force, advantages for
themselves. Democracy strives to open the doo.r of opportunity to the least privileged, to give encouragement to the dispirited and hope to the desperate—to reward the brave and
daring, and to advance the virtuous of every race, religion,
class, and national origin.
America is; and has been, a great nation—not because it
has offered rare prospects "of success to some—but because it
has-dedicated itself to opening the way of fulfillment to all.
.It isn't the desire of a true'American to" use his rights for
drarwdn|£a efrde^about himself .into which none- but a select
fe^tnay enler. __l;_nie=__r_r_rican looks upon his rights as the
means for, bringing himself into association" with others
from.whom — without those rights — he might have been
sibajjatedl-. •-_..-'.*... ... ♦«■»
Our.strength, is great in proportion to the Unity of, our
people^ih the degree to which all associate together, defend
each other, know each bth'er, respect- each other—and each
ofher's race and reiijgitih.
'Where the conditions are present for cooperation our right
of .association is not intended for breaking bur nation up intr
numerous, small groups. The right of association is intended
t<3 breakdown barriers, where the common good is concerned,
by enabling people of different races, religions, classes, and
national origins to^work arid rejoice' together. -
We so usedZ'tlie"Wght of; association'to'conquer the American Tvilderness-^tame our^'swift rivers—cultivate our soil—
Miild our cities and towns—and fight our wars. No single
group of Americans did this*. All Americans did it/together.
They used their right of association^—hot £6r makihgTA&er-
ida a land of many groups each unknown" to" the other—out
for;uniting their common strength for the common good.
This is the spirit of democracy without which there can be
no democracy at all. .
The Study of Politics
,'With a national election coming in 1948, it is an excellent
and most useful th^ig'rif "pteopIe.^wiH/."devote more time to a
study-of "political and government. questions/It is sometimes
remftrked that great numbers of men do not show as great
an'interest in.political^questions as was common in former
■jjjps. If y-ptthear them talk in leisure moments, tBey:may. be*
jifore likely tb speak about .sports and- nastimes, or conditions
in: work • and business; 'than aboutr the ""questions7
