SHOULDER TO THE WHEEL What Makes Gov't. Good? What is the aim of government ? What makes a government good? Is it thq purpose of government to regiment, or regulate, or is it the purpose of government ^o build up the lives of the greatest number of people? If you remember that government is made for man — not man for government — jrou will give the right answer. Man is older than the state. The state is his creature. The digni <y of the state therefore flows from the dignity of man. The state is a contract entered into between men — no, it is more, than lihat,; according to Edmund Burke, the great friend of America in the British Pai'liamen. during our Revolution. Burke said the si ate, ior'society, was a contract between thosei who are living, those who are dead and those who are yet lio be born. The subject is one that has challenged the thinkers of the; world for ages. But, in 4)he last analysis, in the dem> cratic nations of the world it has been the good of the governed that has been the criterion. Only tiie countrie. where; the good of the governed has been foremost has tha. form of government endured. This does not mean a benevolent dictatorship, with benefits given to the governed at the expense of others — whether groups wi'hin the nation, or in weaker countries to be conquered. That government alone endures whi«. gives': to its citizens aft opportunity to work out happiness and security for themselves. The officers .of government art pBlic's&v^t&^^MlttW'brify when'-Qicy-'forget that fac: that danger arises. Tliat this ideal of government is the one to be. sought- after is some) hing which every American knows. It has been proven by the fact that when anything goes wrong it is to the democracies, to the self-goverened peoples, tha'. the rest of the world turns for help and sustenance. • But there is a catch in it. There can be no slackening in this type of government. It must progress. It must k ep up with slihe times — and it must consider the good of the whole people, not of any one group, placing the common good before personal ambition, desires or prejudices. In these United States, we, the peopte, are itihe government. What it .does is what we do. How it functions depends Upon our cooperation. Its aims are OUR aims. Its every act is up to us. Democracy is based upon the ethical princip. ls of individual integrity and regard for one's neighbors. If we want good, government, it is up to us to be good citizens. If we are the masters, let's go to the polls this fall and tell our political servants what we want. Be sure you're registered so you can vote. Electoral Challenge Twenty-four of the 100 men nominated for president or vice president by the major parties have been New Yorkers. Not brie of "the 100 has been a citizen of Delaware. What is it about New Yorkers that makes them such lavored objects of partisan attention? Do they have something lacked by Delaware citizens, as well as by residents |fv other states that have never provided a presidential ^bminee? They have, indeed- New Yorkers hail from1 a sta"He with a huge bundle of electoral votes. That is why Empire State citizens and citizens of other populous siates have an advantage in the struggle to become party standard bearers. The state of Delaware is trying to do something constructive ajbout this imbalance. Its attorney general has fifed; suit asking the Supreme Count to declare unconstLu- tional the present electoral system whereby the canoi^ate drawing most of a state's popular vote — even by a tmyi ercentage — acquires all of its electoral votes. !

Usually, holes and cracks in roadways are patched and sealed with a mixture of a dry aggregate material, such as gravel or limestone, and a binder such as liquid asphalt. It has been common practice to prepare these mixtures at the plant or factory and to deliver them in bulk quantities to var- ous locations for use in repair- ng the holes and cracks. Hqw- jver, this is uneconomical and, .o some extent, wasteful, because it is difficult to estimate acca*- itely the amount of material repaired to patch holes and cracks n many locations. In other words, it has been !ound that more flexibility and greater economy may Be reah'z- ;d by making available at the ;ite of the repairs predetermined imounts of selected materials vhich are suitable for that par- .icular defect. To provide an 'improvement wer the jprior practice, Mr. Bpw^' Srs Has 'dfevisetf^'foaif- repair ooaratus, consisting of., a vehicle which carries a supply Of the ag- ;regate material and liquid binder, mixes them and discharges he "mixture directly, onto the pavement or roadway. In this manner! the* apparatus provides a predetermined amount of material for, patching holes in a pavement or roadway. It may also be used to supply the liquid binder on the roadway and then add the gravel or limestone to such binder. The apparatus of Mr. Bowers' invention has the .additional advantage that one workman may operate it to perform various road repair and maintenance jobs. Consequently, it eliminates the need for the customary maintenance crews of two' or more men for repairing roadways. 10c per copy Two Prom Area On Malone Tojur Two area students are among 25 from Malone College who left New York July 27th for a six- week study—^travel tour of Europe.. ■: '. ;• " ".' .'■ They. are Celeste .

City Planners Adopt Plan for Area Land A plan for streets, parks and o'her land inside North Canton and in certain surrounding areas within the three- mile limits of tihe city was adopted Monday night by the North Canton Planning Commission when it met at City Hall. A SCAN OF SKANE. Leafing through a booklet on nis homeland province of Skane, Sweden, Stefan Bergwall (left) shares familiar sites with his new friends, Susan Davis, 19, and her brother, Rick, 16. The Swedish exchange student joined his fjrst foster family, the Richard Davises of 1018 Sunset, last week fo prepare for school at Hoover High this fall.. He. is being sponsored by the North Canton Rotary Club whose international chairman is Don Daviss Swedish Rotary Exchange Student At Home' With Davis Family "It's a very warm 25 degrees in Sweden now."*;But to the shock of an American, Lars "Stefan" Bergwajil isn't jolting, for he speaks in Celsius, not Fahrenheit, lingo. And as this blond,' blue-eyed Swede roams the halls of HLover High School come September, this will be one of only a few minor adjustments for him to make. 9'jefan's new life in America began last week when he arrived in New York as the North Canton Rotary-sponsored foreign exchange student-/- along, with 97 .other Swedes in the Dl,si rict 665 International Exchange Program. He settled down with his first foster family, the Richard Davises of 1018 Sunset Blvd., where he finds "li'rtle difference' their family and his own. City Engineer R. James Hammoni'a'ee prepared a map of the area involved, explaining that the areas designated were determined by the area which the city could adequately sewer and would contribute to the watershed as determined by the; lay of the land. Park areas are mostly found along creeks and waterways, he said. If the map gains the approval jf the administration and council, it would bring the areas under the jurisdiction of the Planning Commission in sub - division regulations only. Proposed boundaries of the map are the present city limits on the south, the first quarter section line east of N. Market Ave. on .the east, a part of the Summit County line and extending along a line going through the Mt. Pleasant area on the north, and along Frank Rd. and over to Lake O'Springs Rd. on the west. The map, which will be presented to council and to the law director, will be filed in final form with the county as soon as the new subdivision regulations are completed. Planners have been working for several months with the Stark County Regional Planning Commission on updating these regulations. Mr. Hammontree's recommendations for the new subdivision requirements were reviewed by the Commission. The next step in the proceedings will be to set up a meeting between Mr. Hammontree, City Administrator Weldon C. Page, Dale Cawthorne of the Regional Planning Commission and North Canton Planning Commission Chairman Ralph E. Norman to finalize the plan. In other business Monday night, planners: RECOMMENDED that council vacate a 16 - 1-2 foot alley running from N. Main St. to Ream St. between two parking lots south of Hummel's IGA Foodliner, with- the provision that ten feet on the south side of Charlott St. NW be dedicated to the 'city for widening of that street. A letter asking for vacation of the alley was signed by Wayne Hummel and Harley Meyers. APPROVED a motion recommending vacation of an alley running from The Hoover Co. right of - way south to 6th St. NW. A letter from Marvin J. Hohman of 502 - 7th St. requested vacation of the portion of the alley abutting his lot. GAVE an opinion to R. E. Willis, who asked advice about constructing a road to provide access to three lots in an allotment in the Donner Rd. - Lindy Lane SW area. Planners said they would accept a '40 - foot street with a 50 - foot turn - around; Mr. Willis was advised to present a preliminary plan to the city engineer.
