Bock-To' School? COLUMBUS, OHIO Ohi„ State- Museum 1.957 Columbus 10, Ohio '/,$</. VOL. 30 NO. 50 NORTH CANTON, OHIO. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 7, 1955 7c PER COPY Voters Must Register To Save Vote feVEY'W w«u» nm mruutt Did You Hear It? We hope you heard Paul Harvey broadcasting from Chicago, on Sunday night, August 14 on his report to the nation on the Soviet's "new look" ... we set it here before you in cold type to study it and think ... "I am going to repeat Mr. Manuilsky's words once more," said Mr. Harvey. "I have such a few minutes here. There are so many hours and days and weeks that you will be exposed to the smile and the hypnotic soft talk and the lullaby ... "Twenty-four years ago in Moscow he said: "War to the hilt between Communism and Capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we are not Strong enough to attack. Our time will come in 20 or 30 years. To win we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie (that's you and me) will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record." There will be electrifying overtures and unheard of concessions. The Capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They wiil leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down we shall smash them with our clenched fists." End quote. "The Dmitry Z. Manuilsky who spoke those words before, the Lenin School of Political Warfare in. Moscow is the same Dmitry Manuilsky who subsequently became . . . the CHAIRMAN OF THE POLITICAL' AND SECURITY COMMITTEE OF THE UNITED NATIONS'. "Once upon & time a' man named Hitler wrote a book called 'Mein Kampf. In advance, he warned the world that he aimed to make it his. And he described, in detail the strategy and techniques he would employ. "So brash was his plan that we sat in stunned disbelief. Then, incredulous, we shrugged and yawned and went to sleep;.'.* •-—--•-- "Until just a few million lives too late." The foregoing quotes are recommended for pasting, in your, hat to contemplate upon when you see the Russians smiling. Our Changed World When I was ten-going-on-eleven, I read the' line "In these days of scientific progress, Jules Verne's books have been moved from the fiction shelves to the scientific shelves in the library." As I had but recently come to the reluctant conclusion that you couldn't take a grown-up's words for actual fact, I immediately went to the .library. No, they hadn't been moved from the fiction shelves, but that was how I discovered Jules Verne and a whole new world. Time has proven his fantasies to be based on fact. And even his wildest dreams are but everyday conversation in the average home of today. Do you remember when you were first studying history, and how you wished you could have lived in the exciting days, when the whole face of the world changed over night c It is those days in which we live today. We do not sense the greatness of the hour because it] is too near. We do not tuny realize the opportunities un-, folding before us because we are afraid of change. It is too big for us to grasp. By the time the children of today are grown, the frontiers, of time and space will be pushed still further. They willijbe explorers of a whole new world, of new skills, of new crafts — there will be new opportunities before them. There is no reason to fear the future. It may not be what we have known. But neither was what we have known familiar to those who preceded us. We do not have to discard the past, even while we are adapting ourselves to the future. This is the most exciting age in the history of the world —to. date. Let us then make the most of it, and be glad that; we have a chance to live while the world is changing around us. Physical Fitness Problem Americans have always prided themselves on their pioneer tradition.. We have.elevated the frontier .virtues of courage, strength, endurance to positions of the first rank in our catalog. Something must have happened to us since the days .of Davy Crockett. A report by a research staff shows that American youngsters from 6 to 16 years of age are far inferior in strength and muscular flexibility to children of the same group from Italy, Austria and Switzerland. They all 'came from comparable urban, suburban and rural area's. Surprisingly, there was no appreciable difference between the results obtained in American fanning and city communities. Nor i was there any real difference between rich and poor youngsters. All of which should be enough to make us-sit up and take notice. The first sign of danger in any society is a loss of physical vigor. We cannot forget that more than 50 per cent of our young men of draft age failed to qualify physically during World ,War II. If we are going" to retain our world leadership, we cannot permit this condition to continue. Mighty Rome collapsed when, it lost its physical health. A flabby nation physically~becomes a flabby nation mentally and'spiritually.

All employers are also affected hy the new law and will have to pay a tax of .6 per cent of net profit allocable to North Canton operations. The tax mist be collected here , by payroll deductions as provid. led for in the ordinance.
