il "SSt 'Tp _H_HflEMlMOl On Memorial Day a How do you spend Memorial Day? Is it merely the first of the long summer week-ends, a time to go places and to just have a good time? Or does it mean through personal experience — something more to you? Remember when you were little, how there was always a special time at school devoted to pieces about the heroes? And, if you lived in a small town, how gayly the graves were decorated with flowers, and haw yearly the parade of veterans dwindled? War seemed such a PAST thing in those days. After the First World War it seemed nearer. Heores were boys one had gone to school with, and who had gone 'away to music — never to come home again. But still we thought — "this was the war to end all wars. And we went on at a merry pace. The Second World War brought it home to us in earnest. We knerw then it was a life and death struggle and we geared lourselves to it. Gone was the romance of war — now it was part of our lives. When the Korean War came we were inured to it. Or so we thought, until the losses touched us. But we talked still less of the glories of war and of our heroes. Now we live in the shadow of a war threat that affects the lives of each of us. Whether it will lift in our time, or whether it will remain for generations to come we cannot tell. But we do know that if war comes, there will be more a sharp dividing line between the military and the civilians. We will all be in it. Memorial Day is no longer a sentimental holiday. It is a day fraught with significance. There are few families but who have lost some one dear in the wars and those who have not lost, still have much to rememfcer. But remembering is not enough. There is a personal question we must ask ourselves. What service have J, givgn. tomy c6_htry? What service may I give to MY country? Have I done all that I could do? Am I doing all that I can do? The only true Memorial fpr those who gave their lives in our wars, that we might be free, is to do what we can for the country for which they died, that their sacrifice might not be in vain. What<Nhave you done? Don 9tBe Scared by the 'Boogey Man' The "Boogey Man" is a devise that has been used for hundreds of years to scare those who are unaware of the truth. We regret that the "Boogey 'Man" technique is being used on the unsuspecting people of .North Canton to get signatures against the City Council action, applying for Urban Renewal survey to determine cost of improving our decaying downtown section. We have great admiration for those who have the courage of their convictions to stand up and be counted, whether pro or con. But we also feel it is only fair to all concerned for each side to tell the truth and let the majority rule. We have been told by some people who have been asked to sign petition against the council action, that nearly all the arguments used to get their signature were falsehoods or hall truths twisted to give the wrong impression. • Let's play the game fair. Let's tell the truth. If the opposition's plaq has merit I am sure it can be sold by telling the unvarnished facts , the truth. Since the opposition has create^ this horribl-."boogey, man" it is evident to me that they do not feel in their own hearts that they can sell the people if they tell them1 t^e truth. We, strongly uphold everyone's right to their own opinion, but let's form our opinion from the facts. The facts can be substantiated. Don't worry about the "Boogey Man". He never did hurt, anyone. He just scares those who do not know the truth. 2 Sections — 14 Pages Vol. 38 — No. NCL-JiUt aANTON, OHiO, WEIDNiEGDAY, MAIY 2t5 1985 10c per copy Parade, Service Mark Manorial Day Observance Monday Flash!

Connor recently made a disclosure that could have far-reaching implications ifor safety on AmericJan highways. He said that he planned to meet with representatives of the automobile industry to talk about the related problems of how fast the cars of the future will travel, and what kind of roads should be built to handle them. Though Connor declined to say whether he thought the speed capability of automobiles should be reduced, he did make it clear that his concern was "built-in-speed" and how it relates to highway safety. He remarked — a thing obvious, yet often lost sight of —r that if: highways are to be adequate, the builders must know what kinds of cars will be driven on them. This gets at an important element in future auto safety. The chances are that auto speeds will go up? rather, than down. This will make it all the more important that auto design and highway design be coordinated. Increasingly, the auto people and the highway people — which is to say, the state and federal governments — will have to join forces in planning the future of automotive transportation. ■'•' This is the implication, wittingly or not, of what Connor said. Tne results of his talks with the auto manufacturers will be await«d wm to&mt.

Sitting on his desk at North Canton's Citizens Savings office, where he is manager, was tangible evidence of his honor — a bexutifully wrought marble and bronze statue executed in Italy, and a delicately scrolled papal blessing from the Vatican. Fresh in his mind was the big moment Saturday night when he walked in the spotlight the length of the Cleveland Sheraton ballroom to receive his award from Coadjutor Bishop. Clarence Issemmann.

On Memorial Day
a How do you spend Memorial Day? Is it merely the
first of the long summer week-ends, a time to go places
and to just have a good time? Or does it mean through
personal experience — something more to you?
Remember when you were little, how there was always
a special time at school devoted to pieces about the heroes?
And, if you lived in a small town, how gayly the graves
were decorated with flowers, and haw yearly the parade
of veterans dwindled? War seemed such a PAST thing in
After the First World War it seemed nearer. Heores
were boys one had gone to school with, and who had gone
'away to music — never to come home again. But still we
thought — "this was the war to end all wars. And we went
on at a merry pace.
The Second World War brought it home to us in earnest. We knerw then it was a life and death struggle and we
geared lourselves to it. Gone was the romance of war —
now it was part of our lives.
When the Korean War came we were inured to it. Or so
we thought, until the losses touched us. But we talked still
less of the glories of war and of our heroes.
Now we live in the shadow of a war threat that affects the lives of each of us. Whether it will lift in our
time, or whether it will remain for generations to come we
cannot tell. But we do know that if war comes, there will
be more a sharp dividing line between the military and the
civilians. We will all be in it.
Memorial Day is no longer a sentimental holiday. It is
a day fraught with significance. There are few families but
who have lost some one dear in the wars and those who
have not lost, still have much to rememfcer.
But remembering is not enough. There is a personal
question we must ask ourselves. What service have J, givgn.

The only true Memorial fpr those who gave their lives
in our wars, that we might be free, is to do what we can
for the country for which they died, that their sacrifice
might not be in vain.
