Have you ever thought of taking up Hying? It's the rage these days. In fact. Hying ranks second only to parachuting!

(Continued on Page 3) TWO-HO'UIL LIMIT Right Of Self-Restraint Over the air there is much argument about Civil Rights, but no one has yet meritiofted the one Civil Right which, although it is not mentioned in the Bill of Rights, Should never be overlooked. It is the Right of Self-Restraint, without which our other Rights would be valueless. Have you ever stopped to consider what is implied in our Constitution? It is simply this - the citizens who enjoy its benefits are men and women worthy of its privileges, capable of enjoying its rights BECAUSE they are mature Xfy thought and trained in the spirit of freedom to show self-restraint. Democracies flourish only when their adherents practice this right and rite - of self-restraint, when they so conduct their lives that they do not infringe upon the rights of others. In the past when democracies have gone down, they fell because individuals and gr<nrDs ismored this basic civil right. When they clamored for privileges i themselves, when they ignored the responsibilities of citi- zeffship; they lost their freedom. Democracy is the most difficult form of government because it is a society of free men, because it does not regiment the minds of its citizens nor legislate their every act. Its laws are the outgrowth of the wishes of the majority for the protection not of themselves alone but of air men. In a democracy there is no room for free riders. Each citizen has a part to p!ay and work to do. The rules unde which he lives are of his own making. He is not controlle-* bv an overlord, but restrains himself. And a nv his own.laws or seeks to find a way around them - well; he is the kind of a man who would cheat at solitaire! The first person he is hurting is himself. Self-restraint is a sign of maturity. It is the insier: of the responsib'e man - the man wiiio is, first of all, accountable to his own conscience and to his own ideals of what is right or wrong. It is the direct antithesis of self- indulgence or selfishness - that fault which is the root of so many vices, the key to Pandora's box of troubles. Self-restraint is a civil RIGHT - but it is more than that. It is a Civic DUTY, an obligation which is ours an'1 ours alone. To show restraint, in our actions, to consider the Chamber members will help en rights of others as we expect them to consider ours, to let force the two-hour parking and no untoward act of ours or desire for special privilege evaluate the program at the hamper the good of the majority, to abide by laws of OUR OWN MAKING -> that is the duty which we as citizens of a democracy must fulfill. We've Been Planning GOING TJOP? Vernon Sell, Sun publisher, inspects the interior of a Blue Angel's plane. This is as close as most jirea newspeople got to the inaide of one of the Navy planes. However, Ben IMaidenbecg of "the Akron Beacon Journal flew with the Blue Angels. He told all about his tfip in last Friday's edition. City To Try Out "Free" Parking Piggy banks may be eating more nickles. in the next few weeks as drivers find they don't have to pay to park in North Canton. The parking moratorium, approved by Council at its Monday night meeting, will go into effect as soon as the retail merchants committee of the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce provides the meter covers.

The experiment to help boost downtown business is being conducted in cooperation with the chamber of commence. Shotgun Philosophy If there is one thing that is not needed at civil rights tension points in Florida and Mississippi, it is the sort of help offered by the notorious Malcolm X. Were he to carry out his threat to retaliate against white segregat'ovists with armed Negnoes recruited from his Afro-American Unity organisation, that would invite tragic violence worse than anything yet seen. The tone of the black separatism leader's remarks on the subject suggest what might happen. He is quoted" as: having said: "The day of turning the other cheek to those brute beasts is over. It's time to start swinging. The or1 thing that Stops a man with a shotgun is another man with a.shotsuji." Whatever the provocation, and admittedly it has. been great, such inflammatory talk has no place in the ar ve toward equal n^ios for the Negro. Malcolm X claims to have telegraphed: his offer of armed help to Dr. Martin Luther King/in St. Augustine, Florida. The irony in this is that among, civil rights; leadv ers Dr. King has been the chief proponent of nonviolent action. Though he does agree with JViaicolm^ X on one point* that the federal government should protect qivil rightk. demonstrators if local authorities cannot or will noty nothing could be more foreign to his spirit than the appearance of Afno-American Unity gunmen. Thus far the Negro has shown commendable, restraint and an unwillingness to accept counsel of violence. There is reason to think he will continue in this spirit.rather than be influenced by Malcomb X's shotgun^against-shotgun philosophy. If that philosophy were ever to- catch on, it would be a tragic day for America. It uwl«.tp, b©;said:that ahospi^ to die in. Now it can b$ said* without thought of> sacrilege, that the hospital ill- a, placa in which, to be. reborn-. The expression exaggerates; only a little. the. extent to which medical science with hospital faQiiitjes, at command, restores life to many on the brink of~ death. Dr. David Price* deputyj U, S. Surgeon; general, touched upon this in an address, afc: a- recent inference on public health problems of hospitals, aad" other medical-institutions "So total has been the transition," he said* that. people .''leave the hospital not,marvelling at the,life-prolonged and the functions restored but complaining at the coldness of their treatment and the costliness of their stay." That strikes a chord ol truth. So here is a good word TJ^^itJlT^SL for hospitals.

This one portion of the Elbas- co Services plan for the Hoover Co. did more to stir public interest in long-range planning than any preceding surveys °r meetings. "That's r:«ht beside my house,' said one. "Why here?" asked another. Anyone that had a complaint against the hometown industry or who felt dwarfed by the power of bigness joined forces to lash out at Ebasco's proposals to ensure the company a long and prosperous life. The long - range facilities' growth and expansion plan also recommended that the company expand north to Seventh St., increasing its acreage from 15 to 45, and that it close off streets near. the plant. The study also suggested revision of zoning ordinances to permit expansion; annexation of land to maintain tax stability and off-street parking in the business area. The plan aimed at Hoover expansion from a 2,000 to 4,000 payroll. Not one citizen made an objection to this proposal when presented to City leaders Sept. 29, 1960. Hovvever, talk aplenty had preceded release of the final araft — Why close my street and make me walk blocks further to town, do you really think Hoover would leave North Canton (such had been hinted by Ebasco early in their study) and what's to become of our stadium if the company expands to the north? Caught by the philosophy presented by Etoasco's William A. Barrett, ""what's best for North Canton is best for Hoover and what's best for Hoover is 'best for North Canton," citizens decided it was time for a plan of their own. In fact, two separate groups were 'arriving at this same decisionr "City Fathers and downtown businessmen. Backing both was the North Canton Area Development Committee. Established by Council, Feb. 23, 1959, this group completed its first project, a brochure, a year later. This brochure, showing all the advantages of the North Canton area pictured "A City of PROGRESS, Planned for SUBURBAN LIVING." Vernon Sell, first chairman of this development committee, had tin; following working with him: Harold T. 'Duryee, secretary; Charles T. Bogardus, James E. Ritchie. Dr. Richard C. Werstler. Bernard W. Urban and Ray W. Gillman. Another, spur was the North Canton Republican Committee's 1961 Lincoln Day program, Feb. 9, 1961, at which Thomas Moore of Ebasco addressed 100 citizens at Dogwood Park. Meanwhile, the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce was attempting to carry out its goal of securing better cultural, civic and economic benefits for all residents of the North Canton area. Formed in July, 1959, the i The Professional Football Hall of Fame building in Can- ^ton has been adopted as the theme for the Buckeye Council Boy , Scout contingent attending the National Jamboree in Valley Forge, July 16-23. An outline of the building appears on the neckerchiefs and the neckerchief slides the 247 scouts and adult scouters will be wearing and a huge replica of the Hall of Fame building will'serve as the main gateway to the section where most of this area's scouts will be quartered at Valley Forge. The overall length of the curved gateway is forty O? feet and the height to the top of the football dome is 28 feet. 15,000 square feet of aluminum foil and 18,000 square feet of gold lacquered foil, all donated toy Alcoa, "is certain to make this gate way one of the most outstanding gateways at this or any other jamboree", Glenn De- Hoff, council jamboree chair man, said. 858 square feet of chicken wire was used to cover the framework of the structural supports" of the gateway which, was constructed with the cooperation of Brown Lumber and Hammond Lumher of Massillon, . Brewster Lumber of- periodical, chamlber elected Vernon Sell first president. Chamber memhers, at a meeting in March, 1960, were told that the City's economic forecast. for the Sixties was "very 'bright." Speaker at this meeting, Paul Basner tacked on some "ifs;" including solving local parking and traffic problems, providing more attractive shopping areas; and selecting a new city government, which would provide for an orderly growth of the community." These, essentially, were some of the same problems cited by Ebasco in their later study. It appears much easier to define the problems than it is to solve them. Fe!b. 13, 1961, City Council passed resolutions asking the Ohio Department of Industrial and Economic Development to apply for federal runds for North Canton through the Urban Planning Assistance program and recommending that Ebasco Services of New York be hired to prepare a comprehensive study and master plan for the city. Local 'businessmen, told that money could be saved by tying their plan in with that of the City, formed the North Canton Business Area Development Corp. to raise money to finance the plan. The drive for funds was launched by a brochure picturing the downtown shopping area and asking "Do you want this?" Tiie brochure also pointed out that the potential touying power at that time was $28,000,000 per year. It is estimated that this amount has more than doubled since that time. Later in the year, the Planning Commission learned that the City could save money on the plan by reapplying for two- thirds federal participation under BUI 701. This was accomplished in July. With less money to he raised from the businessmen, a new organization, the Central North Canton Improvement Foundation took on the task and "'was successful' under the; leadership of Carl DiRienzi. The year 1961 ended with a forward look as announcement of the approval of the federal -aid came just days before Christmas. Clearmount Gets the Crowd Clearmount was the most popular spot for sport last week, the records of Recreation Director Robert Dobson show. During the week of July 6, a total of 425 boys and girls took part in that playground's program of supervised play. Clearmount also had the daily high of 88. Orchard Hill, high the preceding week, was a close runner-up with 368. With 1,016 girls and 894 boys registered during the week, the daily park attendance averaged 383. Witwer Park sponsored a "Favorite Pet" contest with the following winning prizes: Lorraine Reed, Cheryl Cavalier, Linda Colope and Lynn Deibel. Brewster, and Schneider Lumber of Canton. The replica of the gateway was designed by and construct-' ed under the supervision of Guy Huey> of M-C-A Sign Company. He was assisted in the construction by W. Lewis Lash, Thomas Wright, Sheldon Grant, Louis Wagner, and Kenneth C. Miller of Massillon, and :by Robert LA. • Montgomery, John Roberts, Glenn Surbey, Wendell Graening of the Lake Cable area, and Milan Savan and Kenneth Oberlin of North Canton. The neckerchief slides were designed by Guy Huey, and are of cast magnesium; they were made for the jamboree contingent members by The Orrville Tile Company of Orrville. In addition to the section gateway, each jamboree troop has constructed a 'gateway to the troop's area. Most of "these have features which call attention to the section where the troop is from plus troop numbers and council names. The McKinley District, Troop 69, has Ohio 'as the theme, with two huge letter "O's*' forming the Sides of the gateway with the letters "HI" across the top.
