Did you try watching your own prejudices for one .day? I did once, I kept a list of every instinctive bristling up, and it was very enlightening. Prejudice against ideas is too often prejudice against people who sponsor them. An idea may be so good tna even a bad man will accept it — to say nothing of th people who just want to climb on the bandwagon. Mak up your mind for yourself — study the situation, an draw your own conclusions. What's the use of being ai adult if you can't make your own decisions? Prejudice against individuals is too often a mirror re flection —. you see in them some mannerism, some shading of expression, some tone of voice, some character'stic o someone whom perhaps you have just cause to dislike — and you group the two together. You generalize — whei. really your likes and dislikes should be based only on tht individual in question. Prejudice against groups is too often either a hang over or a misconception. Either it is based on a careles statement overheard in childhood and accepted as a fac Or it may be an alibi — often unrealized by the holder — against some one else's ability. It is much easier to say it is a group against you than to admit personal shori.com ings.

Vhe attends Xian Lulae.'i"' The Enemy Within An increasing number of financial experts warn that our federal tax system has become a threat to America's economic health. Among them is Arthur F. Burns, Columbia University professor, former chairman of former President Eisenhower's Council of Economic Advisors, and authority on business- fluctuations. In a California speech, Burns said we are running a great risk in keeping a tax system that not only discourages enterprise and investment, but also "diverts the energy of "some of our ablest citizens into channels that may bring a tax advantage to- theni or their firms but do little or nothing to raise the nation's productivity." He contrasted our stultifying tax system with measures adopted by the Russians to promote individual effort. "The Russians have in recent years been very methodical in creating large income inequalities," he said. "In particular they reward handsomely their managers, scientists, teachers,. and the more skilled factory workers. But while they have been devising special incentives to spur productivity, thereby adopting the practices of our older capitalism, we have adopted a tax system that weakens the incentive to create and produce. "Can it be," Professor Burns asks, "that the Russians have rediscovered one of the main secrets of Western economic success, while we have allowed our idealistic impluses to obscure the sources of our own great achievements?" That is ..a pertinent question, Professor Burns. We would like to see it brought up at this session of Congress. The Polio Situation • It is not accurate to say that there is a controversy over the relative merits of the Salk killed-virus poliomyelitis vaccine and the Sabin live-virus vaccine. There has been much discussion of the matter, but "controversy" is too strong a word. It suggests hostility rather than the general' determinatipn, which does exist,, to eradicate the disease. The present state of affairs could be summed up thus: Polio is now under control, and declining rapidly; the decline would be even faster if the Salk vaccine were, more widely used. And introduction of the Sabin oral vaccine, probably by next spring, should give new impetus to the war against polio. The main trouble thus far, as the public was reminded the other-day by Dr; Jonas E. Salk; has been that millions of Americans, have received no vaccine or not enough of a dose1 to be fully effective. More than 40 per cent of the most-, vulnerable age group, children under four, have not yet received the three doses of vaccine necessary for adequate protction. The pity of this is emphasized by Dr. Salk's claim, on the basis of latest figures, that 90 per cent of those who .receive three shots are protected against paralytic polio. Four shots give 96 per cent protection. Polio is under control, and epidemics- are no longer occuring, but the situation would be even better if there were universal inoculation. Anyone who waits for the oral vaccine to appear, next serins is glaring/with-fate, _ jit. ._ i-iiyiiis J_gi)ert the Luther Lett- promoter fe-i gue. Phyllis has a long list of hobbies which include sewing, cooking, collecting stuffed animals, ■psychoanalysis 'and psychiatry. -WatS© education will join hands as home economics students at Hoover High School take part in a fashion sewing contest sponsored nationally by the General Federation of Woman's Clubs and the Vogue Pattern Service. The Woman's Club of North Canlun, under the chairmanship! of Mrs. Arthur W. Shaw, vvill | sponsor the local competition' with the corporation of the sihouTs home e tmomics depart.1 rnent under f'e ■-•"'-'-"•vision of j Mrs. Harry Marquardt. 'Pen sophomore girls entered \ in the I'i'niest are Susan Stim-1 mel, Connie Landefeld, Karen O'Leary, Jane W'deman, Penny ( Moock, Carol Holder, Marione "arson, Kay Gopu, Larraine 'oung and Kathy Zimmer. Each contestant will make hat siie considers the ideal cosmic for high s.hool students' rcss-up vs crdrobe. Nittional Prize Sl,()()(» Prizes will be awarded the 'inner, who will be eligible to cprescnt the North Canton Wo- lan's Club and Hoover High at be district judging March 10 in 'oronto, O. State prizes and national hours also will bo awarded. The 'rsl prize for the national win- er is a Sl.Oi'O scholarship or ■ash. Other s'-holarshios or cash wards of $500 and $250 will be warded the national second and bird place winners. The main purpose of the ,con- est, according to Mrs. Vhaw, is o encourage young students to levelop a deeper appreciation of lomcmaking skills. The satisfaction gained from creating hor own wardrobe, from selecting an appropriate and becoming pattern, choosing practical, yet f-shionable fabrics and using sewing skills to :create her costume will pi'ovide an important experien.ee in the teenager's learning and growing. Versatility, workmanship fashion effc-'t 'a n d boeomingncss to wearei', will be considered by the judges, when students model their costume at the local judging, March 9. Tn_se dimes and dollars given for charity always look much bigger to the receiver than to the giver. Mrs. John Underwood, chairman of the 1961 North. Canton Mothers March on Polio, holds a gift which will do much toward erasing crippling diseases and rehabilitating handicapped persons.

North Canton volunteer firemen answered a total of 49 calls during 1960 — 86 were inside the city limits, 13 were outside of town. In addition, firemen attended a total of 24 meetings. The estimated loss in North Canton fires, according to Fire Chief Harry Mohler's yearly report, was $14,005 for 1960. Of this, $9,525 was damage to build- dings; $4,480 to icontents. The breakdown of in-city calls is as follows: buildings, 15; electric motors and grass fires, each; automobiles, 4; false alarms, 2; and smoke scare, 1. Out-of-town the fire trucks traveled to 1 barn fire, 1 gas tank blaze; 5 grass fires, 3 burning motors, on 1 mutual aid call; and to 2 more false alarms.

Cruelty To Ideas
Have you ever been against an idea just because you
didn't like the person who promulgated it'-' That is cruelty
to ideas — and I reckon there have been times when you've
been as guilty of it as I have. lies, „ji
Remember, as Don Marquis used to say, an idea isn't
responsible for the people who believe in it.
Did you try watching your own prejudices for one
