The Legacy Right Or Left? In the months preceding* the last election, the frequently-expressed thought that ''only a heart-beat" separated Vice President Nixojx from the Chief Executive's po-st was in the forefront of most American's: minds. No legs true today than it ever was, this concern over Mr. Nijcon's policies and attitudes vanished in the fanfare over a newer excitement, the liberal Republican candidate who unseated New York's Governor Harriman. This evaporation of public concern suggests that by, some quirk of psychology, the average American voter has decided that Nelson Rockefeller will be the next Republican candidate for the Presidency. What may betide the meanwhile is suddenly of no great moment. The Vice President is much too shrewd to be unaware of this, and, we think, too much of a fighter to let it alter his plans. But what are his plans? Now, more than ever before, it is important for his countrymen to know what they are. It is not surprising therefore, that Senator Barry Gold- water, the outstanding consei-vative of the day, has called upon him to "plant the Republican flag somewhere to the right of the political center and run for the Presidency in 1960 as the candidate of America's conservative' majority:'' > Writing in Human Events, Senator Goldwater .strongly suggests that the fate tof the GOP is in Nixon's hands when he §ays: ".. .1 have this thought to 'Offer about Rockefeller. If he should be nominated by the GOP in 1960... he would be running on the same platform as the Democrat nominee, who, is certain to be a New Dealer. And if we Republicans continue this trend toward "me-tooism," we're through as a party." , -The Senator discounts the reports of Nixon's veering to the left and says: "I think that the Vice President; is "fundamentally a conservative and I hope he makes that clear to the people of the country." ,. i Millions of -otfteT.^:^M'T&^ --and Dem ocrats alike-—will join,* we believe, in the Goldwater hope. As she indicated, we can not look to the Democrat party.-for a conservative candidate—and a conservative* victory ne*eds only a leader. • Hqw Dp You Work? One day not so long -ago; one of the boys I know cam<i to me for advice on two jobs that were offered to him. Now I'.am one of those who thinks' the worst sin is intruding on another's privacy, of decision, so all.I could do was tell him a* story. He said it worked—so I pass the story on to you. .One of the^ great preachers, when* asked; what had inspired him most, said that when he was a small boy, his father was a day laborer'in Scotland. One dawn he woke just as his father was leaving -the cottage for his day's labor. He., saiw-his father pause at the doorway and say aloud, firmly and proudly, "This day I go out in the name of the Lord!" ;Cduld any man have given a greater heritage to his son? That is the spirit in which work must be done. Otherwise the bread it brings is bitter bread, salt with unshed tears. Happiness is .not a thing from without, but a reflection of an inner strength. As a philosopher once said—we have no: more-right to consume happiness without producing. it than to consume* wealth without producing it. !■ We ..can give happiness, but we cannot take it. We can work with a desire to do our best, to. make the things we build the service we render, such that another will find joy:; in., our-work. And its very doing will bring happiness to us. s "But'.do..you-know what I'm facing? What have I to •be,happy about?" My.brother, let me give you the answer a very old and very wise man gave me when I asked just that. "I've noticed thatin'-all important crises in my life, God always showed-, lip-at the right moment if I waited for him." When disappointment,disill usionment, despair, seem to devastate your life—what do you plant on the graves in your ..heart?'-'Do you set up tombstones to mark your defeat? Orido:ypu plant;growing things to cover, the place and makt it a thing of beauty? ;;'.lt'-is up to you. You can tune in God. You can go out hvthelname of the Lord. You can fulfill your duty of bringing! happiness to others. Whatever your work—do it with iove for your fellow men in your heart, and your reward will be peace and happiness for yourself. Ike Favors Repeal President Eisenhower told his press conference recently that he favors repeal of the 22nd amendment to the Constitution, limiting the president to two terms. lie believes that people should not have their field of choice limited by this restriction. ; This type of limitation is often found in state constitutions. Ohio for a long time forbade county treasurers and sheriffs to serve more than two terms. The aim was frankly to pass the -offices around, and prevents some popular incumbent from' retaining his place term after term. This restriction was finally repealed, but many others like it are to be found in various states, ■■ '. .■President Eisenhower's position is.soundly "cased. With the world in tumult and danger constantly threatening, the United States.should be free to elect the best man in sight, whether he has had one term, two or five. A good question foncongressmen and.others who want"to limit presidential tenure'is this: ,, , ,.,,„„■, t Why did ,not the Congress, which proposed the 22nd am?hdment, likewise limit senators and representatives to ■Ohi ssysft/sff" « VOL. 33—No. 28 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, 1959 7c PER COPY New Telephone Numbers To Be Assigned In Area Approximately 1,000 Ohio Bell subscribers in "the Canton and North Canton area will have new telephone numbers assigned to them effective Sunday, April 19.
