The Critic COLUMBUS. OHIO Ohio State Museum 1 qw Columbus 10, Ohio 9o' VOL. 31 NO. 47 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1956 7c PEJB COPY Police Nab Two Texas-Bound In A Stolen Car North Canton Jaycee Officers for 1956-57 Is It A Shell-Game We have a big wall map <xf the world, as, I think I have mentioned before. And on it, whenever there is a commotion in some part of the world, we put a red question mark — which stays until the trouble resolves itsel*. This morning when I looked at the map, it seemed to have the measles — there were so many of these red question marks, in all sections of the world. Cyprus and Poland, North Africa and East Germany. Guatemala and Tiflis. The Near East and Tibet. First one and then the other erupt. And I have mentioned only a few. Cyprus had nationlist riots, and they caused an American death, the next thing that happened was a riot in Poland. Before that there were riots in North Africa — andj when they became too bloody — one in East Germany. Students rioted in Guatemala — and then in Tiflis. The Near East became a powder kep — and so did Tibet. What does it all mean? Who knows? I certainly don't claim any expert knowledge. Maybe there is' a spirit of revolution in the air? Maybe it is all a demand for freedom from whatever is unpleasant? Maybe it is instigated? (In that connection, I cannot help noticing that the Soviet calls all riots and. rebellions outside her territory ."the spontaneous uprising of the depressed and downtrddden peoples". But when it happens inside her territory or that of her satellites, it is "instigated by the Imperialistic West and the American War-momgers.") And then I thought of the time pattern and the distances between the places. And I remembered something I was told a long long time ago—■ that the shell game was the oldest known form of gambling. The old man who told me about it said the clever operator of the game always managed to distract the eye by some slight gesture. Now we are not playing a game. The stakes are too heavy — for what we are bent on preserving is our righto live in a peaceful world, to be free to keep our ancient Sights, and to befriends with "out neighbors. But the cost of defense is high. The burden of constant watchfulness is wearisome. Could it be that our attention is being distracted.— so that some time we will look the wrong way at a crucial moment? I frankly don't know. What do you think? General A pathy-Biggest Enemy It is already clear that the biggest single enemy which may be faced by both political parties on Ndvember 6, 1956 will be that discouraging foe of many a campaign, general apathy. Primary Viotes are seldom an adequate harbinger of things to come in national Presidential elections, but they are still not completely to be ignored in appraising the shape of events. This year's primaries, with few exceptions, have been marked by a feeling on the Republican side strikingly — and startlingly — reminiscent of 1948. Registration in some areas is down to the same levels, and it will take a real organization effort to bring it up tb the victory figures of 1952. Democrats are encountering similar, although not so j>ron6un,ced, drops in their statistics. i Too. many people on the Republican side believe as they o"id .sight years ago that this election is "in the bag". Some Democrats on their side think they "haven't got a chance." Conditions of this kind breed indifference, and indifference is unhealthy for our Republic. Two fourteen-year-old boys, arrested in .North Canton, Monday night, were put in the Custody of their parents and hometown law officials Tuesday afternoon.

Swope Supervises Seventh Street Play \Thirteen Words I Now and then a matter of universal concern is stated so clearly that it seems as if the heart of humanity is speaking. This does not happen often, but on those rare occasions when it does, one should listen carefully. | When prime ministers of the British Commonwealth nations, concluded their meetings in London recently, they issued a statement which contained this thoughtful sentence: i"War would bring disaster to many; world war could mean destruction for all." Thirteen words only, but words full of meaning. This short sentence might well be inscribed in the halls where the world's great affairs are deliberated. Better yet, it ought to be graven iri the minds of all those millions whose fate is sealed by such deliberations. For in all the talk of cold war and hat war, of containment and massive retaliation, thei-ie 13 words should not be lost sight of: War would bring disaster for many; world war could mean destruction for all. Help To Those WhoHelp Us | Out of the recent sessions of the 84th Congress, there iemerged an unmistakable determination on the part of our nation's legislators to reduce Uncle Sam's overseas commitments. We have made it clear that we are not going on indefinitely distributing the taxpayers' dollar to any apr ^ plicant, irrespective of its role in world affairs or its attitude j president of Student Council, and towards the conflict between the Free World and the Communist slave satellites. The Administration clearly recognized this attitude by •Withdrawing a previous offer to assist Egypt in the 'construction of a projected dam. Notice was served not only upon Egypt but aJso upon all nations seeking help that we are not going to fall for the line that "if Uncle S_im won't give it to them, Moscow will." If they want to deal "with Moscow, let them see how far they get, -writhout surrendering their birthright of freedjwn. From now on out, the Word is, "Help from Washington goes to those Who. are on our pide ohlx" A familiar name is that of Judy Swope, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.
