Who's Ahead? * • <x 9 ! COLUMBUS, OHIO Ohio Stale Museum 1-057 Columbus 10, Ohio VOL. 31 NO. 43 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 1957 7c PER COPi. Court Decides Fate of Four Headed for Trent River. Canada No Alibis Accepted Two on Probation; Other Sentences Suspended Four area juveniles, between the ages of 16 and 17, appeared in court Tuesday in Canton after beinf arrested last week for holding 4 young couples at gunpoint for several hours in a vacant house. Two of the young offenders were put on official probation for an indefinite period, and two others, win had previous records, were given suspended sentence:, for Mansfield reformatory. The four "gun toters'' founc". 4 boys and 4 girls in a vacan; house on 48th NW, reportedly e popular "parking" place, and held them there several hours. Deputies were first brought into the case when an alarmed father called them. His son, who Three Running for Mayor Fall Slate Almost Full With the deadline for filing a declaration of candidacy two weeks away North Canton already has an almost complete slate for the November election day. Running for Mayor on the fall ticket will be Ross L. Cahill, Raymond B. Evans and George W. Swindell. The office of clerk-treasurer is so' far uncontested with Lester L. Braucher the only one in the race. . Ever since Adam, the favorite indoor sport of man has been laying the blame for whatever has gone wrong on the shoulders of some one else. "That woman tempted I had Phoned hours before- ^^ me, and I did eat." ] It doesn't make any difference what the mess is — whether it be a window broken by a stray ball, or an ov£r-use of power by an individual, a group or a nation — those y^ho went along when the going was good, are the first to decry the blame and condemn some one else. In the case of children, they call the blame-shifter a "poor sport." What shall we call the adult who does precisely the same thing? It seems to me that the alibi-er is really making a, confession of inferiority and is saying in so many words '■ (jfOCer 34 YecirS th4t he,can be led around, by the nose, that he doesn't' think for himself, that he is ignorant, or indifferent to what is going on about him, or that if he .did see what was happening, that he either didn't care, or hadn't the essential courage to at least protest. ' You will find these alibi-ers quick to condemn and to act in righteous indignation once there is. a public scandal. (I would like to know what they were doing before it became public.) You will find these alibi-ers among those who continually find fault with anything their elected representatives do.' (How many of them did not trouble to vote in the elections — local as well as national?) .; If you look ai-ound you, you will find these alibi-ers in any group to which you belong — church, club, lodge, or union. They complain and criticize — but what did they do to help make things right? Were they on hand when the rules Fere drawn? Did they keep watch on those they put in1 power-?- ■"•■ - ••• ---r- ••.--.- --■ -?v- '•■'■'- If you look back through the pages of history, yo*u will find these alibi-ers. According to the historians, power goes by default. A tyrant cannot raise himself. The reins of the government' cannot be seized from a strong, well- backed representative executive. It is when the reins are dropped, tnat a despot can step into power. It is childish to blame the leader. A leader is the res- resentative of those who put him in, who gave him power to act. If he goes in the wrong direction, it is up to those whom he represents to be alert and ready to act. Sheep may follow their leader blindly — but no alibis can be accepted from the free man and woman. Theirs is the responsibility of choice, and on them will rest the final blame. he was on his way home, had failed to arrive. When the area teen-agers did arrive home their story of the i "gun threat" was verified when deputies discovered two .22 caliber rifles at the abondoned dwelling. Ervin Royer Dies Services were held Wednesday for former North Canton grocer Mr. Ervin R. Royer, who died last Sunday afternoon in Timken- Msrcy hospital at the age of 78 The last rites were conducted in the Lewis & Karlo funeral home by Rev.

To Strengthen Faith With the crises and over-excitements of this era, the diversion of interests and dissipation of time made possible for us by great prosperity, our sense of values sometimes weakens and our faith in reason and intelligence is crippled. Against this we must guard. We need to retain and hold to a prespective. The Values of Western civilization, the values which nourished us as a mothr does a child, remain as sound as ever. But they have not attained and never can attain universal acceptance in a hurry. To hold them, defend them, deepen them in ourselves, our society and in the world to the degree that we can, is a task and challenge for us. Even though they are under assault today, they retain their strength. They are what men like Khrushchev fear and what small dictators like Nasser cannot understand. A good reading of Jefferson, Hamilton and Lincoln now would help to strengthen our own faith and confidence. For these men — and Jefferson and Hamilton in particular, even though they disagreed — helped to lay the ground for .so much that is best in our society. If the attention, of school pupils is focused on such of our forebears as these three, the faith of youth can be deepened. We have a world to win, not as imperialists or even as rich uncles, but as the carriers of values which can nurture in men the desire for growth and the impulse to use reason. We face a challenge we can meet, the challenge to perpetuate a tradition of freedom in reason. It is good for us to realize this. For these years are very confusing. The Kremlin Must Lie The United Nations committee report on Hungary is a blow and a danger to the Soviet Union's leaders, not only beyond the Iron Curtain but also inside Russia and the satellite countries.,The Russians must attack and discredit it in their usual fashion. They dare not print the full report in their own newspapers. The first mention of the report in Pravda branded it as "provocative" and "unlawful." But the reference to this document was incidental, and Pravda did not tell its readers that the document was official. Rather, Pravda accused "advocates of force" in the West of becoming alarmed by the possibility of disarmament. Moscow also said that there is nothing in the report that is new. Originality was not the aim of the commission; it sought the truth. And the truth it discovered const' tutes one of the most sweeping and devastating indictments of the Russian leadership ever made up by an official body. The Russian leaders must lie about this report, especially faj their own people, , Russ Brown Resigns As X-Ray Technician Russel O. Brown of Louisville, will leave his post as X-ray technician for the Stark Co nty X-ray mobile unit August 17. Mr. Sanford S.
