°°<y 4Tj Use Citizen Is A Full Time Job Being a citizen means a' lot more than just going1 to the polls on election day. When something goes wrong, are you. among those who ask, 'why can't those in power do the right thing? That isn't .what we stand for! or Why doesn't someone do something about it? Stiop and think. Are you sure you have ail the facts ? Are you sure that from where you sit you can see all that is going on? The only exercise some people get is jumping at conclusions. Can you watch the game from the sidelines and be an umpire as well? After all, you did the voting. . you had the freedom "of choice. The men you elected or the majority elected aren't exactly morons. They have reasons for their actions. Suppose you wait a bit and find out what those reasons are. , Besides you have a job to do. Certainly, — it is your right and duty to ride herd on the men you elected to of fice — but don't just complain at random. For the umpteenth time, I say Write to those whom you elected what you think—but write constructively, not destructively. And remember hindsight always was better than foresight. And in the meantime, have you done your job? Have you kept the wheels turning in your own particular baliwick? Misled any days lately? Was .your easy chair before the TV set more attractive than the meeting you should have iattended? ..If it was, don't gripeabout what Was done in your absence. " Now don't get me wrong, .I'm not saying you.shouldn't i'lajse-your-voice in objection,, when you see something go- j^g j0o4Jgy'" You/should. And I'm not against the good' Am- encaif'custom of criticizing the government. It is one of our safeguards—when it is based on reason. But being a citizen means a lot more than just going to 3thcp6Us on election day. Or getting your party boss to kill a traffic ticket for you. It irteans taking an active part in politics —- and keeping watch to see that they are clean politics. It means studying thje records of candidates before they are nominated. The primaries are just as important as the final election. Being a citizen means being ,on the job all the time — alert to keep the rights of free men and equally alert to their responsibilities. There is no powier to equal that of free men banded together. It's the way the United States grew to power. Let's keep it that way! Taxes-Up-Down Or Sideways Our tax problems are in for a good overhauling job at the current session of Congress. The House Ways and Means Committee is eager to find areas where cuts are feasible, and the Administration is just as anxious to reduce Federal spending. At the same time, a special commission headed by D'ean Manion is seeking to review all of bur Federal,. State and local programs to analyze, the Federal aid policies which have been'in effect for the past twenty years. Among the interesting areas scheduled for exploration by this Commission is the subject of who does what and why. There may well be fields now being treated by Federal agencies which should be vacated and turned over to local governments. The spread pf Washington officialdom into States and municipalities undei: the New Deal influence was so rapid and sank so deeply into the thinking of our bureaucracy that it may take TNT to get it out,, but there is plenty available in Washington today. ' Currently, the tax paradoxus"highlighted by the simultaneous reduction of income taxes which commenced -January 1 and the raising of Social Security taxes from lVk'tb 2 per cent. This has had some unusual taxpayer effects, but none of it has been too happy.' - Education Local Responsibility A worried parent recently wrote Mrs. Oveta Hobby, Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, expressing deep concern lover commuilityj^apathy toward •local • school • prob* lems, especially those of a budgetary nature. In an election involving desperately!needed school taxes, the writer observed' that, ";There were .72 votes cast in our box — in contrast1-to the several thousand vot|es cast during the last presidential' election. And ours is a neighborhood of young marrieds."1 Mrs. Hobby, a federal officer, was then asked to do something about the situation. The answer'to a plea of this kind should be painfully clear. Local initiative, local responsibility,, and local pride are things that cannot be establishedfby. fiat 'nor. bought with federal money. Turning !:to" the- federal government to solve local problems is a deadly process for people who value freedom. It is suicidal in the case of education. As Mrs.'Hobby warns, "Our public schoiols:began in our local, communities, they must stay there . . . the Federal Gove'mmenfcmust not interfere in.educationalmatters?whicK rightfully'belong ta-thtelbcal-.and State-authorities." • * osy '■ ,-. ■}>>.<, VOL. 29 NO. 17 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, J1ANUARY Z7,1954 7c PER COPY Jaycees Sponsor Hospital Drive In North Canton Hundreds of area women are being enlisted as volunteer workers in the residential division of the 52,500,000 Canton Hospitals IBuilding 'Fund, under 'the leadership of Mrs. H.

Sponsers Indian Guide Exhibition In 1926, at Richmond Heights, Mo., the Osage tribe of Indian Guides was formed and a movement of national proportions was bom. Through the intervening years this program has gained national recognition in YMCA circles and, Wherever the program has toeen properly introduced, it has met with considerable enthusiasm and much success. The program is build upon the relationsh.'p of ifalther and son. Its pattern follows Ithe example of the Indian Brave who was primarily responsible for the •day-:by-day instruction which his son received. It is interesting to note that 'the Indians never had to deal with such things as delinquent Children. Certainly the key to this fact is to toe found i-n the close companionship which existed 'between 'the Big and Little 'Braves. The "Y" Indian Guide program seeks to emulate this relationship toy -bringing Fathers and Sons' together in a ifriendly atmosphere of fun and instruction. At Indian Guide meetings, Indian lore and custom is carefully followed with the result that father and son meet on a common ground. In response to a need in the community and in conjunction with National YMCA Week, there will be a North Canton Longhouse Council Meeting Friday, January 29 at 7:30 in the Community 'Building Annex. The Mohican Tribe of North Canton will act as host and Mr. 'Paul Carter, Executive Secretary of the Neighborhood IBoys' Branch at Akron will be 'guest speaker.

NORTH CANTON JUNIOR WOMAN'S CLUB TO SPEARHEAD THE MOTHER'S MARCH ON POLIO PORCHLIGHT CAMPAIGN THURSDAY NIGHT JANUARY. 28, BETWEEN 7 AND 8 P.M. The climax to the month-long March of Dimes comes this week when some 3 million women across the country hold their Mother's March on Polio. Whether on foot, pn snowshoes, on horseback or in automobiles, neitherrain nor snow nor sleet will stop these indomitable women from visiting every house where a light or glove signals tnat -axonitri- bution for the fight against polio awaits them. About 50,000 'communities Iroan New York to San Francisco are making the Mother's March their grand finale to flhe March of Dimes campaign. Mothers realize thait it is a vital march this year because it comes -as hundreds of thousands of children are about to participate in a vaccine test that could spell the end of polio. These tests, together witih the expanded use o'f the temporary protection, gamma glotoulto, will cost the National Foundation for Infanitle Paralysis $26,500,000 this year. For this reason, contributions Ho the Mother's,March must be greatly increased. In addition, .medical care ifor 66,000 polio patients stricken in previous years who still require aid must toe continued. And the vast programs of professional education and scientific'research must go on to add them. It is for our children that each and every one of us will give more than we have even 'given before, that We may all know for sure that no girl or toby wail ever by taken from us again or rendered helpless through infantile paralysis.
