MdTTdpoTy f Ohio Stale Museum 1.937 Columbus 10, Ohio VOL. 31' NO'. 19 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1956 7c PER COPY Conrad Traut To Address PTA On February 7 The North Canton PTA will meet Tuesday, February 7, at 8:00 in the High School auditorium. Mr. Conrad W. Traut, Director of Vocational Training at the Hoover Co., will speak on his recent participation in the White House Conference on Education held in Washington D.C. last year. Mrs. Robert Castle will have charge of devotions. There will also be .special music on the program. Handling the refrcpshments . is Mrs. Ray Gopp. Yardsticks For Candidates All of the prognostieators, columnists, commentators and what-have-you are busy explaining who will be a candidate for what — and giving reasons for and against. But have you noticed that all of the reasons they give are POLITICAL reasons? .Now it seems to me that the average voter should make his- choice on something other than, reasons .of political expediency. And the time for Lne avei'age vote.: to do his thinking is now — before the candidates are chosen. When they are, there is nothing left for him ior Iter to do but vote for or against. I don't suggest any candidates. All I have to offer is a yardstick. It is based on three words — words used very freely by candidates and their backers. "Command" — "Responsibility" — "Service." To my way of thinking any one who is a candidate for a position of leadership needs all three. "Command: The right or power to command, possession of controlling authority, power or influence." A good leader mast be able to assume command, to be unafraid to lead, to be willing to make decisions, to use his authority wisely, his power sparingly and his influence where and when it will help all those whom he leads. "Responsibility: The state iof being responsible, answerable or accountable, a duty, trust or obligation." A good leader must be willing to take responsibility, to be answerable or accountable for all his actions, to consider his position; a duty to be fulfilled properly, a trust to be adminis- tei'ed iior the benefit of those for whom he is a trustee, an obligation to be met with religious fervor. ''Service: Thwart of serving: Any work done for^the benefit of another, the act of helping another or of promoting his interest in any way." A good leader must be ready to serve those whom he leads, to do his work for the benefit iof. the greatest number, to help without prejudice or preference all those who follow him, to protect their interests — not merely <of the moment — and to protect them from ill-considered action on their own .part. If we can just find candidates for leadership who will fit that yardstick — we won't ever have to worry about the' future of America! • I Onward For God And Country The Boy Scouts of America observes its 46th birthday during Boy Scout Week, February 6 to 12, with its membership at an all-time high of 4,100,000 boys and adult leaders. Since 1910 more than 24'/> million Americans have shared in its leisure-time program. The*re is scarcely an American family that does not know of Scouting first hand. To mark this birthday the (Organization launches a Four- Year Program with the theme "Onward for God and My Country." i The Boy Scouts of America seeks "through organized and trained man power to give an increasingly better program to an increasing number of the nation's youth, says Dr. Arthur Schuck, Chief Scout. Executive, and to "help today's youth to 'Be Prepared' as citizens of character, to be prepared in body, skill, spirit, will, and as a member of a team." i , \ ■ The Chief Scout Executive feels that this program is launched at a time when it is evident that increased emphasis on our free way of .life is important. For the safety and welfare of the United States, he holds, a patriotism of the highest type is essential, a patriotism built on a firm spiritual foundation. "As scouting-now influences the lives of three million hoys," he says, "we must help them to the realization and acceptance of God as the guiding power of the universe. We must interpret and find additional methods to help a Scout in his own religious life to fulfill his obligation.to God as .'stated in the Scout Oath and Law." The "Onward for God and My Country" program also seeks to give youth opportunities to. develop physical fitness, self-reliance, a sense of personal responsibility, a spirit of helping people, a willingness to share, and an understanding of government's democratic processes.- It is a program worthy of the support of all; American^ interested in youth. Biggest "X" In Calculations The big news recently has been the merger of CIO and AFL into the world's largest organization. No one can estimate how effectively the merger will operate in the 1956 political campaigns, but there is plenty of evidence already in hand to indicate that the proponents of the merger envision political activity as the number one business of the organization. Gains in wages, conditions of work, pensions and fringe benefits have already been achieved. The control of political power is just about the.one area where the ambitious leaders of these groups have not yet asserted their authority. A tremendous concentration of power like this must carry with it corresponding responsibilities. We have a right to expect the merged Labor Organization to check the credentials of its local union leaders, to police them' against corrupt, influences, to prevent, misuse of welfare "funds and to stop intimidation of workers.
