-No. 23 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 1950 fir. PER COPY !ta> <h Canton Red Cross Goes Over the Top W .W. Steele Jr., Chairman of the 1950 Fund Campaign Drive for Canton Chapter, American Red Cross, announced at the first report meeting- Thursday, March 9 that NORTH CANTON with Mrs. A. Clarice Miller, chairman, was one of the first five divisions to reach its Migrants Hear Starvation quota in the 4950 drive, thereby making North Canton a charier member of the "Red Cross Red Carnation Club." North Canton's quota was $900. Mrs. Miller reported $900.05 collected." The other four divisions awarded red carnations by Mr. Steele Were Osnaburg Township, Mrs. Helen Delap Baker, chairman; Sandy Township, Fred Zimmer, chairman; Mercantile division, Harrv Mestel, chairman, Lawrence E Your Congressman In Washington Schools, Thomas Harold S. C. Knapp, my materials Dictatorship Bill Before Congress A law has been proposed in Congress which would "sovi- etize" this country, and every business and every individual within it. It is known as the Spence Act—H. R. 2756. It would give the government, through the President, the power to take over the economic system of the nation if, in his sole opinion, materials or facilities were in" short supply, if prices were too high, or if some other situation affected the national security, the foreign policy, or our economic growth. Here, in part, is what the President could do if the bill became law, as described by John T. Flynn in his book "The Road Ahead". L He could decide how much steel, lumber, or anything else could be produced. Industry would be compelled to, meet whatever production budget he laid down. 2. lie could, if he decided they were necessary, build government plants and factories to produce commodities of any kind. 3. He could establish: priorities for materials, on either voluntary or a compulsory basis. Mi*. Fynn observes, "Here js the power of life ;md death over every industrial enterprise in the land." L He could regulate all exports and imports. , ;?" £e,cm'Id establish maximum prices on am and facilities. U. Finally, he could lay down anv rules lie deemed necessary to make the Act operative. These rules would have all the power of law. And, to cap the climax, he could "make such inspection of the books records and other writings, premises or property of any person and make such investigations and conduct such hearings as may be necessary to appropriate to the enforcement or administration of this act." Of this provision, Mr. Fylnn says- "Here is the power of seizure and search upon a hitherto unimaginable scale." It may seem unbelievable that a "dictatorship bill" coil Id ever become the law of this land. It is frightening to think that such a bill should even be seriously proposed in a free country. It would give the President the same powers that Hitler and Mussolini had, and that Stalin has. And whether one agrees or disagrees with the view of any individual President is entirely irrelevant. The principle is what counts. Many years ago a great American said: "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." That is truer today than ever. And this incredible measure—which all alone, could turn the United States into a total government—provides terrifying proof of it. Watch Your Speech I was listening to a speech one night—a dull, dry-as-dust speech—and my mind was wandering, when suddenly I heard the speaker say: "For the old adage of 'No taxation without representation' one might well substitute the new slogan of 'No criticism without study'." If we could do that we could revolutionize human relations. If we stopped to, study a situation, how seldom would we criticize it? Instead we would understand it. Prejudice always menaces the person holding it. None of us would willingly steal. But he who condemns another unjustly or who bears false witness against his brother is a thief. Shakespeare said: "He who steals my purse steals trash; but he that robs me of my good name, robs me\ of that which not enricheth him, but makes me poor indeed." How do we do that? By generalizing against a man, by attributing to a group the mistakes of a,n individual, by broad characterizations, by not taking the trouble to learn all the facts. Go. over the people whom you think you dislike. Why don't you like them? How many do you dislike with good cause? How many because you are not considering them as individuals but are lumping them as a group. Do you speak carelessly of people ? Do you assume more knowledge than you really possess? Plutarch said: "He who reflects on another man's want of breeding,, shows he wants it as much himself." You wouldn't touch one of your neighbor's possessions? But what are you doing to his good name? A man for whom I have great admiration said one day, in speaking of another man who had done him harm, "If I were small enough to dislike a man for personal reasons—" That is true greatness. He saw things in their proper light. He would not be hurting the man by disliking him, but he would be injuring himself. If we have nothing to say about our brother—then in fiod's name—let us be still! ! Answer To Delinquency Baker, Oregon, is "trying a new plan to curb youthful delinquency. Under the plan juvenile delinquency has fallen off 90 percent. A new city ordinance provides a jail sentence of 100 days and a maximum fine of $200 for parents convicted of permitting a child to remain delinquent. Under the ordinance a delinquent child is arrested and tried. Upon conviction the parent is brought in and sentenced to imprisonment in the city jail. Officials of the city recommend the ordinance for cities faced with the problem of child delinquency. co-chairman; Vincent anl chairmen.

Final version or" the legislation, approved by the House 261N106, removes the tax on oleo July 1. The bill as finally passed did not contain the requirement that colored oleo be sold in trian-l gular packages, but oleo must be served, as triangular patties in.public eating places.

It was antici- patpd that bookmobiles would be sent to rural areas to serve the 33 million people living on farms Your Congressman voted for bill. Proponents claimed that the legislation would be a great boon lo those without library facilities. Opponents claimed that library service was a local and state matter not within the scope of federal pa dicipation. Previously, the Hou=e arrived to consider the bill on the House floor by a vote of 209-110.

The t•inp°i';iry measure, Mayor Price said, also will cail for an office of (mil.ling inspection, which v, il! he created by ordinance at the next session of council Monday, .March 2'i. It v. ill be the duty of such an inspector, he added, to ciick all proposed holism and see that they meet qualifications set up hy the Veterans Administration. The village council received a petition last night bearing a record f:77 signatures requesting it lo take immediate action to prevent large-scale construction of "small, controversial houses" until a suitable building code and zon- intr ordinance could be passed. The action stemmed from the proposed construction by Stark Homes, Inc., of iiO prefabricated humes on the- north side of the village. Mayor Price recently stated that the village could not prevent tneir construction. Council was handicapped by the absence, due to illness, of both Mayor Frank Evans and one council member, Harrison Cline. Only four voting members were present, and council therefore could take no immediate notion on the petition. However, Mayor Price nevertheless announced the suspension of additional permits for the type of houses in yuestion and said a study of suitable codes^ would be started. Since -III of the 50 homes to be built by Stark Homes have not been completed, advisability of revoking these permits was again di.scu>sed. However, Mayor Price sai 1 today that, although they were frozen for a short time, permits lor all 50 homes have already been issued, and that there was not much the village could do on these. Citizens...present at the meeting voiced a fear that a few years m.ight see sufficient degeneration if the proposed houses to greatly permanent United I devaluate the present I hemes in the area.
