A map is part of most news stories. Even the novels include maps. And it is a good thing. Because the more we learn, of terrain —• of places — the more we can understand people and their actions. .From where I am sitting I am looking at a map — leight by nine feet large — of the world from the aeronautical viewpoint. It is a fascinating thing to study, though rather overwhelming at first glance. Look at the map. Trace the route of the boys you know whjo fought overseas. They went far afield, didn't they? But trace the distance back in the air speed of the jet planes that roared over your'head yesterday. Will the next war — God forbid that it comes to [war — be fought as far away, or on your doorstep? Are you prepared? You will recall that the Spartans built no walls to protect their country. Their wall was readiness of each citizen. Look at the map. Trace out the routes the source materials of the things you take for granted, have to come. The things that make your life comfortable. The things you do not want to do without. Then decide in your own' mind the answer to the question: Can we stand apart or! must we be a part of a peaceful world ? j Look ati the map. Think .of it not as places but as I people. Alien in speech, yes. Alien in habits, perhaps. But j people — wanting the same thing you do. A chance to work, to build for themsfelves and their families. A chance to give their children more than they themselves had. Wherein lies the differencee ? Can we see Uh'em go down, into the darkness of despotism ?. Look at the map. At the country we so proudly hail as ours. It doesn't look large compared with the rest of the world — but think of the size it seemed to the pioneers who settled it. Remember their hard^hip^ and their courage. What men have done, men can do. An ideal plus the will to act! Look at the map . . . and be notafraid. Dreamers DO WIN! Confusion and chaos seem to abound everywhere in the world today, but in Detroit this month a ceremony occured that proves once again that America is still a land where boys can dream — and make those dreams come true. In its 24th year of helping boys make dreams come true, the Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild has bestowed hundreds of awards to winners of its annual model car competition. The several hundred state awards range from a $25.00 U. S. saving's bond to $150 in cash. The forty-one regional awards included free trips to Detroit for the Guild's annual four-day convention, and eight university scholarships, with a total value of $20,000. The prizes, in all, represent a grand total lof $90,000. Pleasant as it is for a boy to receive one of these awards, the most important gift of tlhe competition to each Boy participant is the assurance that he can, no matter what his background, walk with his chin in the air, his eyes on the stars, certain that his heritage of freedom guarantees him the opportunity to gain almost any goal in life if he has talent and isn't allergic to work. Equally important is the expression by Fisher Body, in sponsoring the competition, of industry's responsibility to the society in which it is rooted. For this is a program that does some honest spade-work in preparation for America's tomorrow. Such a program helps develop Americans that are capable of effective citizenship in a highly industrialized world! Lightning Damages Hinton Residence Saturday's rain came as a welcome relief to everyone in the North 'Canton 'area but the brief electrical storm which accom' - panled th'e precipitation proved costly to the W. H. Hinton residence at 320 North Jackson Street. 'Accordvng to 'Mr. Hinton a bolt of lightning struck his 'home about 6 p.m. and knocked out all electrical service as well as ripping some slate from the tu'of. The Hintons were at the dinner table at 'the time and Mr. Hinton was struck in the leg by the bolt. He was not injured ser- ,'ous'ly but said he could still feel its effects Montlaiy. 'Articles damaged included a radio, a clock and several light bulbs. Mr. Hinton added that a neighbor's television set was struck and that hls electricity was off until 10 p.m. Saturday night. All told, 'he estimated the damage t'o be around $150 to $200. 'All telephone service 'in the block was out until late Sunday afternoon. North Canton Dogs Win At Ganfcsn Puppy Match Three 'North Canton dogs won prizes at the 'McKinley Kennel 'ClUb sanctioned puppy match held Sunday at Nimistlla Park. Two of the winners were in the hound division. "Hugheliff De'bbie Ann" owned by 'Miss Marily Bender of 'RD 2, worrfirst in tlie Afghan hound division by placing as first senior bitch, best ■of breed and third in h o u n d 'group. In the Bloodhound group "Aristotle II," owned by Paul H. Swandt of 935 Main. St., North Canton placed first.

Spies" won #te Winners Dog an'd Best of Breed in the senior class of the sanction imatch and their red female "Ima V. Spies' won the Winners Female and 'Best o'f Breed In 'fhe puppy class Which is from 6 to 9 months old. Indo-China "Peace" Hollow The end of shooting in the Indo-China war is identical in its pattern with the cease-fire in Korea. Communist aggression has once more resulted in a victory for the Reds. Despitje their failure to win their ultimate goals in both Korea and Indo-China, the Communists have ended both struggles in control of substantial new parts of important areas. Moreover, the "peace" is regarded, at best, as temporary, and, at worst, as the invitation to further aggression. Certainly, the cessation of hostilities affords a respite from death and agony. It must not be construed as an en> couragement to cease our efforts to prepare for furthei Episodes of the same character. Inevitably, the question arises, "What next?" Where will the Reds seek to stir up further unrest! with a view to armed hostilities ? Will it bt North Africa? Will it be another section of Asia, Northern India, Indonesia, or Hong K'ong? To date, the record of the Western Allies in repelling the aggression and subversion df the Communist world has been weak and halting. Perhaps tihe cold reflection dictated by the study of these events will bring Britain, France, Italy, Western Germany, Spain and our own country morecloseiy together in our common interest. If our friends do not yet *«alize that they are endangered, tjhey must be blind indeed, j College Flying Saucer Project Proves Nothing Ohio Northern University's 'study <of "the phenomenon of the flying saucer" has been concluded land with, it may end the interest and rumors 'that have been 'flying around the pas!t few years.
