Dov*/nrIgrrt Embarrassing l Ohio State Museum Columbus 10, Ohio 1-960 VOL. 33—No. 6 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1958 7c PER COPY MIlUAl NEWSfAfB KATURE ASSOCI^;; Are Differences Deadly? In the last days of the political campaign this year, there was as always, an upsurge of vehemence. Over the air-waves voices in every accent and modulation - shrill, soft, or tin-panny .— proclaimed to the listening multitudes the merits of their candidates and the many sins (of the opposition. Is it any wonder that foreign commentators chortled with glee over what they mistakenly called "dissension" in America? Never having known what freedom can be they did not understand either the cause or the transient quality of the vehement differences of opinion. They did not know that the free expression of thought is democracy. That Free Choice is what is meant by the rule of the majority. # Those who founded our republic knew by bitter experience that unless they insured free speech — the birthright of all Anglo-Saxon nations — they would stultify this union of states. That unless men were free to seek the truth as they saw it, and to express themselves without fear, there could be no real progress. Differences <of opinion are not deadly. The right to a prejudice is an essential part of civil liberty. The danger against which we have to guard, is when freedom of speech becomes unbridled speech, when it extends beyond the bounds of justice. No man has a right to vote his prejudices. No man has a right merely to vote against. He must vote FOR the things which he believes. He must select his candidate upon the basis of what that man can do — not on what some opposing candidate has left undone. He must Search for truth — not waste his time digging out lies. Democracy is safe only so long as its followers continue to seek the truth. The- basic falsity of Communist ideology is that the Communists try to square the facts with their own theories or desires. They do not seek the truth because it may contradict what they wish to believe. They seek rather for tlie lies or weaknesses in their opponents' statements and--play these up. ■ As Americans, we must not fall into their errors. Our elections are vital issues to all of us. We have the opportunity to prove to the world that we may differ in ;opinion, we may disagree as to the methods — but that patriotism is not the possession of one party (oi- the other, but of both; and that freedom of speech breeds fair speech. Speak.fairly; seek the truth and vote for, not against — and always be sure to vote, at every election. North Canton ol Bond Levy Passes Sr. Woman's Club Style Show Will Nov. 11 Red Vacillation North Canton Residents Give $9,553 To United Fund; Exceed Goal By 116% North Canton residents can well be proud of theii contributions to tlie United Fund. Exceeding the goal by 116 per cent, a total of $9,553 was raised in the North Canton area campaign. On Thursday evening October 30 at a final report meeting in the ballroom of the Onesto Hotel in Canton, it was announced that United Fund of Canton area, which includes North Canton, had raised $985,522 or $59, 585 above their 1958 goal, and 6 per cent above the set goal. A crowd of 700 persons attended the meeting. Dr. R. K. Ramsayer, president of the United Fund of Greater Canton, congratulated the workers and announced that it was the first time in local fund history that the goal was exceeded by as much as six percent. It was also announced that Frank B. Malone, an eight-year veteran of United Fund work, would head next year's cam- paif*!. The new campaign chairman served as associate chairman of the commercial division of this year's drive. He started as a UF volunteer worker eight years ago in the industrial division. Employed as director of industrial relations at Union Metal Mfg. Company, he served as associate chairman of the residential, North Canton and schools division. Leading fund-raising division wa.s the Industrial Division which exceeded it's goal by 11 per -cent. $141,834 was collected. The Industrial Division, headed by North Canton Resident, Brooks R. Powell, placed third, producing exacUy its quota, which was $48,803. Heading the North Canton divisions of the campaign were Mr. Paul Basner and Mrs. Robert Amiet. - Mr. "Robert Amiet," Residential Chairman, and Mrs. Samuel Boll, assistant chairman wish to express their heartfelt appreciation and to thank all the home- makers who gave their time and effort to the United Fund Campaign. Because of their enthusiastic work we were able to go over goal by 110 percent and make the United Fund Drive in North Canton a success! Jr. Sorosis Sponsors Sale Of Ident Tag The United States and its western allies have done well to propose, through the United Nations, a suspension of all nuclear weapons tests during attempts to reach agreement on a permanent ban. This action focuses the spotlight on a fact of central importance, the cynical vacillation of- Soviet policy in this matter. I The Kremlin is behaving like a government that wants to get off the hook and not really settle down to serious talks on the subject at Geneva. The Soviet Union did agree tp such talks, based on an earlier report by scientists that an effective worldwide inspection system was feasible. But ever since the date was set the Kremlin back-pedaled. The Soviet government tossed its first monkey wrench into this particular machinery by demanding that the Geneva talks be conducted at the foreign ministers' level. The United States and Great Britain insisted, quite sensibly, that much" more "would be accomplished by having the matter threshed out first at lower levels. Then the Russians, without announcement, resumed nuclear bomb tests that had been halted with such fanfare last March. Not only that, but S'oviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko said petulantly in the United Nations that Russia would make as many test blasts as the combined total of British and U.S. tests since March. This is the sort of irresponsible, obstructive behavior the free world has come to expect of the Soviet Union. It is good that an effort is being made to place the blame, .in the eyes of world opinion, where it belongs. What is the United Nation's? "That is "a question well worth some thought as we commemorate the U.N's founding 13 years ago'. One way. to arrive at an answer is to begin by saying what the United is not."It is not.the great Parliament of Man envisioned by Tennyson — not yet. The General Assembly is' not a place where only truth is uttered, where justice is-always done; the voices of- both tyranny and democracy are heard. .The Assembly is not a forum that gives the wisest men in the world a chance to work together in : self less. devotion .to the cause of peace. Governments, and not the wisest men, speak there. Nor is the United Nations, as its enemies' claim and as some others fear, an abiding threat to national sovereignty. Its charter expressly forbids intervention in the internal .affairs .of any nation save when j»eace is imperiled. The United Nations was established "to save succeeding generations from the. scourge of .war . . ..to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights ... to promote social, progress ,and.-.better, standards of • life in larger freedom." -"IJhese noble' goals may hot be fully achieved for decades, perhaps generations, to come. Yet we must not despair. The United Nations is not a.perfect instrument; it is a state at making reality of humanity's great dream, the dream of peace.ahd justice for all men.

The Junior Chamber of Commerce of North Canlon gave the youth of all ages a most: delightful program last Wednes- Halloween Party at the Community Building" YMCA. Hundreds of people from tiny tots to elders with a youthful twinkle in their eyes attended the parade and party. It seems to those of us who saw the work done on this project that someone should express appreciation in behalf of the communily to these young businessmen for the time they gave to this project. The joy it brought to the young people can certainly bo matched by tho lack of major acts of vandalism in our communily this season. This is the type of program that- provides fun rather than maliciousness, direction rather than disinterest. After the program was over the same men who had put-on the show pitched in and cleaned up the Community Building YMCA. The Auxiliary Police too were on hand -'ind as is so often true, these gentlemen serve our community on many occasions with very little expression of thanks for their work. To care for Ihe many, many people who attended the Halloween Pany wa.s a monumental task. The community surely must extend to tho Jaycees and our Auxiliary Police a most hearty thanks for this positive youth activity. Sincerely, Paul 'A. Permar. Jr. Executive Director. James Bardin .
