tLXGWft Vol. 39 — No. 3 gecttj^i —" 14 ;-4 ■_•!-!■ ',- \j^S^L<e0^iii'^S>, foWfiESPAX, JUNE ., 19B5 '-■.,',)'VVr'.'.ti lOc.per «opy Downtown wi^ 7%e _>«ta O/1 _7ie Matter Washington has recently been afflicted with a gathering of self-titled "students", all protesting vigiorously the policies of the United States Government. Personally I know of no school that would have permitted such unwashed specimens within their doors. One'wonders, too, how and where they. could have learned so little of the behaviors acceptable in a polite society. And the few who might have been frustrated refugees from' a college campus looked so very young beside the majority. Be that as it may, they showed a woeful ignorance of not only international affairs but of this country. They were taking such a delight in repeating the line of the leftists and in condemning the United States. ' "y What is more to the point they overlooked one basic fact. The idealism that was the basis of our nation. In a, continuance of this idealism1 will be found the strength to protect it. The United States was formed by people of divers nationalities and traditions, drawn together by a belief in the basic ideal freedom and equality for all. These: freedoms are not for one group, or for one class, or for one creed, or for one color. .They are for all peoples. And it is only through the practical application of these ideals that we can hope to attain the end to which we aspire. Go back over the history of our nation. When ideals have been ignored, disaster has threatened. When ideals have been adhered to, the nation has grown. It was tne ideal of freedorn that founded America. It was the ideal of the home that settled it. It was the ideal of the sanctity pf man that shaped it. It was the ideal of understanding that gathered to 11 all the best of diffetejit groups and diiferent faiths and made it the greatest nation 6h earth. Idealism is- not an escape frorii reality. Idealia_n is reality. Only'as we look upward, only as we ^mfci. upward .tegether, ^ea$g^.B&^ a better way 0 life for ourselves as individuals, of f6f ourselves as a tihited States in a Free World. We are a nation of individualists. Let us not overlook the ideal which, cynics to the contrary, motivates tis. Iii every emergency in our history; it has been the force which contriolled oui' actions. It !s bur strength. "Men fight best with ideas at the ends of their bayonets," Spinoza wrote. He was right. But, when the IDEAS of men are the IDEALS of men, then they become a conquering army, an invincible host. The -inaugural city-wide Neighborhood Forum laft . Wednesday qt Hppver Jfigh School brought out many facts for and many questions fttom the 100 citizens who $t1#tf<fed Because of the indicated interest in dowatown redevelopment and urban .renewal, t&* forum.central committee at a meeting Tuesday night, iMade tenatiVe arr_tngeirhents |e> have two meetings on Urban Renewal with an expert resource perisqh. the east side of town, will be in July; the other, to _aup^ in August. One for Flag Day Is it possible to -wave our Flag too much? -Provided, of course, that you wave' it with integrity? Is it possible to study Lincoln or Shakespeare too much? Is it possible to read the Bible too much? The great, the good,,the .true, are inexhaustable for inspiration, example and strength. I believe that we are not waving our Flag enough, not nearly enough. It seems to me that we ar*e developing a tendency to be timid or even apologetic about waving the stars and stripes. Walk up and down the streets on .Flag Day or the Fourth of July and count the flags. July 4th is our nation's birthday, a sacred day in world history, the most important day for America. Why isn't the Flag flying on every rooftop and from every home and building? This complacent attitude is strong evidence of cancerous patriotic decay. The .Flag is a symbol of our national unity. It is the spirit of our undying devotion to our country. It stands for the best that is in us • for loyalty5 character, and faith in democracy. Isn't our Flag a synonym' of the United States of America? Does it not represent man's greatest, noblest, most sublime dream? Is it not the zenith of achievement, the goal to which generations have aspired? Ladies and gentlemen, I believe it is time for us - for the mad rushing twentieth Century Man - to stop for a moment and think. The great event of our past and present are wrapped up in our Flag. It is the symbol of this blessed nation, a giant in industry, education and commei'ce. Our great republic, the chosen infant destined to be man's last and remaining hope for suffering humanity, a shining beacon of light, noble and glorious, is the haveh for, the oppressed and persecuted and truly God's gift to mankind. That is what the Flag means to me, Can we wave it too much? I don't think so. ' _ '..,.' firing's Own Pace The trouble is we are calendar-minded, calendar- orientated. Gome April, we expect plfe^aiit waim daysy and a great burgeoning of greenery, aiid showers that will entice May's flowers. But in some parts of the country, as seems to happen eveiy year, the weather is simply hot conforming to this picture of spring by the calendar.; Instead of balmy weather, here and there, floods and tornadoes have made mockery.of April... Halfway through that month, jheavy snow has fallen in places hot accustomed to such caevalier treatment. In less sophisticate^ times, people were able ,to take the weather more in stride. Not that they were I9SS' affected by its vagaries; on the t contrary, change had a lot more meaning than it does now. But in;the old,daysjpeqple usejd to take the seasons more as they came. They did not regard spring bs something -scheduled--to- «mv_- at it certain time; they let it develop as it would, and figured there had to be a certain amount of backing and filling before spring was really here. Which is something to remember, nefct time you feel like.iiQwling:, "3irt it's April ovMsy or Jj-ae^'l "Mrs. 'Robert L. Racey, pres! dent of the sponsoring North Canton Woman's Club opened tihe meeting and Harold T. Duryee served, as moderator for a parade of civic, governing and educational leaders. Offering background material and future plans for groups they represented were: Charles Strausser, North Canton mayor. Brother Thomas fFarrell of Walsh College. Charles T. IBogardus, representing the ChamBer of Commerce. E. R. Malone, superintendent of city schools. CDri R. T. Wartrarton, chairman of Citizens ior Progress. Jack Morehart, director for Kent State Canton.

Serving as moderator for the groups frere 'Royal Keyes, Wardl; Jack Toole, Ward 2; R. Wade Norris, Ward 3 and Peter (Rodei-eyer, Ward 4. ' ' .' At ward level open discussion established a ''priority list' of problems citizens felt -the forum ward groups''should tackle first. In three of the .four wards the subject uppermost on their minds was the current downtown co!re area redeveloprtieht arid in Ward • 1 residents felt their most immediate problem was sewers. Three future tentative ward- level meetings came out of dis cassion. Ward 1 residents will meet June 23. at Portage School to _ir their problem and hear answers from responsible sources': Ward 2 "has set a meeting f6r July 15 at Dogwood" iPark and Ward 4, for July 7 atHo'Pv- e^i^fgh School.

StnansSer, in presenting the picture of this growing city's needs, sta'te'd that the findings 'of"tne year-long zoning study done by -the Stark County Regional Planning Commission will be presented to City, Council next Monday. He listed improvements of the waiter system, storm arid sanitary sewers, streets and, their traffic flow, recreation facilities, plus annexation and redevelopment of the business area as the city's major future problems. Mr. Malone ran through the four phases °f the $.00,000 school 'haUding program made possible by the 1963 bond issue. Current work foeing done under that is the cafeteria, study hall arid library at Hoover. High and the four class-roohi, library and cafeteria at the junior high school at the respective costs of $600,000 and ?HWi0CJQ. The six-rcl_ss'room addition at Clearmount School "that opened in September at a cost of $107,000 and the new #75,000 lecture room that went into use ' at Hoover High at the same rtime were the;ilrstxtvv'b phases carried out. t*" •He also pointed out the additions at Hoover will eliminate the staggered "class schedule for next _all. The levy up for renewal is the 3.6 levy' voted in'fdr ~%e years in '11960. A second lOjS mill levy was rehewed iri 1J9J$ for a seven-year jjeriod.

His S6 • acre 'campus serves 400 students presently, lout a future forecast is for a student (body of 1,000. He expressed the thought that the proxiirilty^pf the two colleges will only accentuate the desire for high learning in the area. Mr. Morehart told of the $600,000 fund drive initiated last week for .Canton's, share of the. proposed 227 acre campus.
