VOL. 28 NO. 47 "NO^TH'-CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26,1953 7 Cents Per Copy A Truce h Not A Peace So the truce has been signed and the prisoners are slowly cofhing home. The commentators <are dwelling on th© problems of peace and what will happen to bur fecbfromy. Impatieht families are loudly wondering when the boys will be-released from service. But '.'.' r dori't be misled. A truce is not a peace. A'triicfc _£ "cessation. of hostilities." Peiace is ... in a sec6n__try definition . . . "freedom from violence." A tilled is.not the time in which to let clown one's guard. It is not .... or should not be . . .a tinte of relaxing, of slowing up on the job. No, 1 do not me_ln we should enter into a trace in a state of suspicion, with the full certaiiity our Opponent is juSt w-litiiig to hit lis when we are riot looking. I believe a truce should be entered into as a pause when every effort should be made to resolve differences arid find mutual agreement. But that doesn't mean we should ntot be watchful. The lads who will never comeholrie frorri the prison camps, the youngsters who will go* through life, with crippled bodies and weakened constitutions, deserve our faithfulness tfc» thj Meals for which they fought. We rhust riot let thelhdovrn. The next few weeks, which 'will detenhine whether or not the hostilities re-commence or whether we may have peace for ai time, are crucial ones. Compare it with something with which we are all familiar. The strike^ has been called off while negotiations are under way. The" pickets are dr_twH off.'• But the contract has still to be signed. Both'Sides aire watchful and alert. Thei_ is a tenseness in the air. _MvsMU!ul negotiar tor avoids-sma_l-^_mpy_m_.s^hat~i__igM-s^M^-.^-flare-of temper.: Thfe order is "Stay Oh The Job . > . i__rid keep still." That is. the position in which we now find ourselves in Korea. That is good advice for. us. This is not thfe time for arm-chair admirals or corner store politicians to determine thie course of history: We elected people to do that for us. We ate riot in a position to know all the facts. Lets leave it to those wno do . _ . and in the meantime, let's keep on the job . . . and keep still.

Bond, Shorthand and Typing; Charles Bre den, Instrumental and Vocal Mu We, Too It is the habit Of the majority in speaking of the minority to comment on how careful they must be, to say that like Caesar's wife they must.always.be above rfeproafch,'that each and every act must be watched, arid that the individual must consider the effect of his actions upon the group from which he comes. That is plain horse sense — we all know that. •,-■.... But sometimes "I wonder if the majority in-this country ever realize that this applies to us as well — that we are but a minority in the world, by both race and nationality. It is up to us~at all times to be good advertisements for our republican form of government and for our democratic way of life. We preach to,thie,Europeans of. the folly of their national and trade barriers, oi the dividing lines between countries. But we don't see" anything tf-agic, only the humor, iri the story-of thfe Boston gentlewofnan who could riot understand why there should be a fog in San Francisco when it was three thousand miles away from the ocean! We turn"to the East and'talk to the Asiatics of the Wonders of Democracy And of hbw they should conduct their lives. .But. how. well ;do we demonstrate the brotherhood1 of mankind? How. goodjs; our .own record? > Both national and personal? Are we entirely guiltless? .-.'•.- Every. j_ct of discrimination, every'outbreak of intolerance, every one of the vituperative cat fights, in which v^e indulge during political campaigns is a black mark against our "way <_! life in the eyes" of the oiddoking world. Of course we know what we mean. ' We 'discount half of our own talk. But the people of other nations take us at face value and ask: "Is that democracy?" We are judged abroad—just as we judge, our. own minorities—by our actions and our speech as individuals*." And as individuals we must bear witness for thfe' things in which we believe. As we would be judged, so must we act.

At 6 a.m. Sunday morning she received official notice of her brother's release in a telegram from the government, fyith the assurance that she would be notified as Membership Roundup For Scouts And Cubs To Begin September 1 The McKinley.

Never so glad to be an American as today. Am in pretty good shape. Getting wonderful care. Looking forward to seeing you real soon. Love to the family.. Bob." "Things began to seem like real, then," said Mrs. Wymer. "At first it was all so hard to realize, but things are beginning to shape into a wonderful picture." Further confusion was furnished by reports from several persons that a Cleveland TV station had carried word over the weekend that her brother had already arrived in San Francisco. Mrs. Wymer felt the report must have been"_rroneous, however, because, as she said; "I just received the cablegram from Tokyo Tuesday morning and I understood it probably took about 12 to 14 hours for it to have come through. Also," she said, "I'm sure he'd not have landed in San Francisco without calling me soon after. I don't think I could stand lt if he just walked in on me!" Needless to say, though, she's praying he'll be on the next shipload of boys to reach San 'Francisco. Waiting anxiously with their mother for their uncle's return are Mrs. Wymer's two sons, Robert Thomas, 4, who was named after his, uncle, and Gary Lee, now almost 3, who was bom just two weeks before his uncle's capture. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Remark have just returned from a two week vacation at Houghton Lake, Michigan.

The resolution will now be presented at the Legion's national convention to be held at St. Louis August 31.

Swimming Pool To Close For Season Aug. 29 Important That All Korean Veterans Get Chest X-Rays The importance of veterans getting periodical chest X- Rays after they are discharged is emphasized by the presence of two veterans of the Kbrea_i War at Molly Stark Hospital. Both of these veterans broke down with tuberculosis after they were discharged from the service arid had returned to employment. There are at the present time 13 veterans of all wars at Molly Stark and nine others at other veterans hospitals from Stark County. L. L. Taylor, Executive Direc tor of the Stark County Tuber culosis & Health Association, stated that statistics compiled by the World Health Organization shows that a large percentage of the population in other countries is suffering from tuberculosis. "For this reason," he continued, "troops serving these' countries are more apt to come in contact with tiie disease." According to'E. P. Cannon' Contact Representative for the Veterans Administration office in Canton, veterans are considered to have service connected disability if they developed active tuberculosis within three years of the date of separation of active wartime service. Mr. Cannon urges all veterans for their own benefit to have periodic chest x-rays especially during these first three years after, discharge so that they may ipro- tect \ their entltlemerit for benefits with the Veterans Administration. The rlext opportunity for veterans and other persons desiring free Chegt x-rays to secure will be at the Stark County Fair where, the Christmas' Seal Mobile X-ra_r Uriit of the Stark County Tuberculosis and Health Asso'clatiori will be set up.
