R. 77 A^be M.ost Unnecessary Surplus SfandM A. great man of lettei*s once defined a cynic as someone who knevr the price of everything and the value of nothing. > There comes a time when each of us must pause and consider just what our standards of value are, just what we, as individuals and as an integral part of a great nation^ Jiold most dear. If we weire asked-what is the motto of the United Stattfi, .w<g would surely answer-, "In Ck>d we1 trust." America gives' its citizens freedom of conscience, not license for uhconscience; freedom of belief, not the destaoyal of all belief; . Iforour standard of values, we have a yardstick of common Relief in the omnipotence, the briiniscience and the omnipresence of • &6d, no matter whether we learned our faith, ih; cathedral^ church or synagogue. It is our common denominator. The Ten Commandments belong to all ajike. . We'are a God-fearing' people. We KNCJW what'bur standards Of Value' riiiist' be. 'Tiief were laid <Jown by the PropHet*\Mteah; centuries ago when lie said, "What doth the Lord require of thee;i.but to do justly, love mercy, arid walk htWibly witli''thy "'God.' All three great faiths subscribe to tha»t yardstick. '■'"■ * ' Inasmuch as all religions are based upon the same fund^hfejfit#l principles and concepts, religion should be the m^&is of brihjgMg'about" a* becter understanding between people-, and should iuitte' them in common bonds of fellowship! If/; hcnVevef, pebple will persist in regarding; religion as a s^rce": of separatism and a divisive thing, their religion fftiay 46 harin father than good-. If it does, it' is the faultl^f^'&e.folb^r^rjatlier than of the creeds themselves; 'Biey am not-following their iown."faith. 7 .j^^m'pur o^ religious teaching we KNOW what our stai$£rds<?$ yafues must b., It is up to us, as individuals and as a'nation to abide by these standards. ^dventumls Up - And Down! >• In all our excitement over adventures in outer, space, we; should not forget that those other far-distant worlds that twinkle in the night sky are not the only mysteries left to conquer. . We^ know what's ON our earth. But we don't know much about what is INSIDE it. We have only a dim idjea of what is in the great ocean depths. We don't know when or where or for what duration there will be earthquakes of volcanic eruptions. , The search for petroleum—in the ground and under the sea-^h. s, perhaps, added to our knowledge of the earth beneath .us. more than any other adventure. The first successful oil well of' a century ago was 69 feet deep. In Oklahoma, the other day, wildcatters abandoned a dry hole at 17,2fc0 feet—after spending more than two million dollars in drilling. In spite of expanding knowledge of geology, the development, of' sciei>tific prospecting aids and the ability to study a vast' idtvaij} from the air and to put down tools and men and supplies in any. ljkely spot, the American Association .of Petroleum Geologists^ rat^s the phances of striking oil or/gasiri Unproved territory at" one out qf nine- And the chances .of a profitable oil or gas well are but'"three ip. $ hundred.', ' ^A- ,'>. :■- . : .

They.ai'& victims-of what Dr. Francis J. Braceland chief psychiatrist at the • Institute of Living in Hartford Conn., describes as the "calendar neurosis." Victims of tliis neurosis, he notes, dread the mere passage! of §me so much that they age faster than they otherwise wduld. The paint is well taken. TJliere are many encburagijttg examples ,oif men and women who "think young", arid cpnsequeritly seem younger than soirie of theii own generation who afe physically no better off. Mental attitiid4 particularly recognition that psychological' age is of fundamental importance. load Section, Two interchanges ©pen Jn November, 1963 Area drivers who are be- ;ng detoured to make way cor highway progress are beginning to see results. Work is moving ahead rap- dly on the section of new Interstate Route 77 freeway oetween Canton and Akron. The highway, which will be extended north to Cleveland will 'look up with other freewya.s leading south to Florida. It will be' the major road linking the Ohio River Valley industrial empire with the Great Lakes Seaport at Cleveland. Dane Construction Co. of Mer- iden, Conn., is contractor ior the freeway section from Canton north to Greentown-iGreensburg Rd. A field office is located just soutii of the Portage St. Ext. crossover, site of the Marchand Interchange. This interchange will have four ramps permitting exit and entrance for both north - and southbound traffic. (Local drivers also will be making frequent use of the Wise Ave.-54th St. Interchange which will permit northbound traffic to •get off the freeway onto Wise Rd. or to get on the freeway for the Akron-'Canton Airport. Traffic also will be able to enter and leave via EVerhard Rd. Southbound cars on the freeway also will be able to leave Rt. 77 at this point. The section of freeway from just north of Uie Akron-Canton Airport to State Route 619 west of Uniontown is being built by Miller Excavating, Inc. and Cleveland Engineering Corp. Both sections are expected to be opened to traffic by (November, 19.3. The 'airport interchange has off ramps for north and southbound traffic headed for the airport and also entrances,, going north and south for cars ieaving the port. The next interchange north WiU be at U.S. Rt. 224, at the sou'th end of Akron's freeway. The section between State Rt. 619 and Rt. 224 will have to be completed before the highway will be open all the way from Canton to Akron. The LiR. 77 freeway will tie in with Akron's expressway system and continue north to connect with the Willow freeway in Cleveland. Going south, it will head toward Dover-New Philadelphia, vhere a bypa.ss is now under nonstruction. From 'there, the -oad will go to Cambridge and Marietta, through West'Virginia ind the tip of Virginia to Char- 'otte, N.C, where it will con- iect with a hew freeway lead- ng into Florida. The freeway will be a four- lane, divided highway with a vide grass median strip sep- aratir.ig tire two 2&-feet wide concrete strips which' Will carry 'raffic .in opposite directions. There will be no itop signs, no signal lights and no intersections. I.'R. 77 will be part of a 41, ")00-mile system of federal interstate highways and will be • he only such highway in Stark County. State and -federal, highway officials expect the system to be completed in the next 10 years. According to Royall Brandis, ->rofessof; of economics at the University of Illinois, "Ohio has made considerably more progress on its .portioji of the interstate system than has Illinois." Ohio has 1,496.2 miles planned for " Interstate: " Illinois, 1,586.5. Ohio sports 207 miles of existing "oil roads to Illinois' 151.- , Already 397 miles have been ibuilt in Ohio with interstate jfunds, as compared with 254 for Illinois. In addition, there are '27 miles under construction in :"}hio and only 111 in Illinois. According to 'Gov. Michael V. ~)iSalle, Ohio has approximately 'OO' mile.s of right-of-way acquired' to 41 miles for" Illinois. These concrete pillars will, within a year, bear the weight of I. R. 77 crossing over Portage St..The eastern section of pillars was poured Tuesday and was hardening when pouring began Thursday on its mate, several yards to the west. Marchand Interchange will provide entrance and exit for the freeway at Portage. Lane Construction of Connecticut is general contractor for the county's, section of tlie interstate highway.
