SAMPIaE COPY VOL. - NO. 11 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1952 '7c PER COPY A THrnj H^rry (Eljr.tatm&H tn fntt All Hebrews Xf//, 8 Can you remember back to those nights-beffore Christmas when yo,u lay quietly in the winter dark straining* your ealls, for the hocf-beats of neindeer above you, or the rustling and thumping of St. Nick down in the parlor? And do you remember how all-at-once it was morning, CHRISTMAS AIORNING — and everything looked different, smelled different, tasted different as you leaped out on the cold flooa- and down the stairs with your feet hardly touching the treads—to see what was under the tree? Christmas is different now, you say? Different to whom? To the youngsters? We don't think so. Superficial, unimportant things have changed, but HJie KIDS DO.N'T KNOW IT. Maybe they get up in a warmer house than you did. Maybe they've . got inside plumbing. Maybe they don't have t(o bring in the wood and fire up the kitchen range. Maybe they don't hop the sleighs going by any more. Maybe they don't get their milk ftfom the cow, or ham from the smoke house, or even home-made pie made from dried iapples. They might even have to eat frozen turkey and do their ice skating in what you would consider a mud-puddle. But are they down-hearted? Any less excited than you were? Is that shine in their eyes any different than what your Mother amd Dad siaw in youns? Christmas is the same, folks ,. . . YOU'RE different. Butl the best part of Christmas notw-a-days is that y*ou can shuck off the curse 'Of maturity so fast when that little fellow brings his fiVs-tj toy to your knee to help him wind it. Hours and hours later, someone is going to say, "Will you get up off. that floor and help me set the table?" Sure Christmas, is for kids—all us kids! Put Christ Back in Christmas If Christmas is to be more than a financial burden, it is because we are able to inject a sense of deep religious significance of the season into our activities. It is simply recognizing the basic religious meaning of Christmas, and of the spirit .of "Peace on Eartih, Good Will Toward Men" which is bafeic to religion*. In the long run, however, putting Christ back into Christmas is more than just a one day proposition. It! involves a year-round recognition of the supremacy of religious values. Internal programs in every organizatiion to increase membership participation in community religious activities is la 'step in the right direction. Ini the Community, church members can be the forefront to coordinate celebration of religious holidays. It is important to avoid overlooking the holidays of minority religious groups). Radio, Movies and Television programs with a religious theme should be given first preference, especially if they are designed to appeal to the entire community. It is more than just a coincidence that Religious activities are more prevalent, at Christmas time than at any other time of the year. It is the spirit of Christmas in the hearts of mankind, when Ihey celebrate the birth of their Lord.

CAA officials said objections to extension of the North-South runway on the basis that it would create additional hazard to residential areas north and west of Canton are groundless. Bow said the CAA experts agreed after a thorough study 'that a 2,000-foot extension of the runway would not make any appreciable difference in regard to either ndise or safety The experts also expressed the opinion that extension of the North-South runway would not result in any traffic, conflict between Canton-Akron and Akron Municipal airports, and would mea*r*| an estimated saving of 5500,000 as compared to construction of a new East-West runway. An extension would greatly improve the present North-South instrument runway, the report stated. CAA added that even if an East-West runway were built, it would not become the instrument runway.
