MAKE TJHE DOORBELLS RING You Can Be A Politician A politician, according to the dictionary, is someone who is versed or experienced in the .science of government. In less elegant terms, he is someone who understands and takes an interest in the affairs of his city, state ana country. And, when his interest becomes active, when he works at it, he becomes "the most important politician in the world" because he then is party to making the final decisions in our political life. Who, today, are these politicians? Actually, they come from all walks of life. In fa t, during the past five years more than half a million people have aken political courses and have prepared th;m.,el es for responsible party work. Today, precinct committeemen, members of their block and precinct orga„izations, and c n- dida es' campaign staffs are increasingly made up of professional people, of labior leaders, and young business executives, of anyone whose, primary interest is 'good government. The very people who are active in poli.ical party work are the same people who support and work for school issues, or their local community drives. They are "\ ^lun eers who have no personal axe to grind. They are motivated by two things: They want to make their voice heard in government, and in formulatng the policies and platforms of their par y. They want to have a part in persuading good, qualified men and women to run for office, and then in working to elec) these people. This is the.image of today's politician.

Jaycee City-Wide Party Set Oct 29 AI Junior The date for North Canton's community-wide Halloween "Now Is The Time For 99 "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid" — of the Government — and keep their mouth shut! It sounds crude, doesn't it? But it is exactly what I mean. The moment is too fraught with menacing p ssib li- ties. Tha tension, is so acute that no spark of careless speech must be allowed to start a conflagration, "Now is the time for all good men" — to put partis n poli ics aside., In time of crisis it is not an Adm nistj. alion that speaks — ibut a Government., The Government. Our duly elected Gic-i$ernment. Frankly, I don't envy those in Government who have to make crucial decisions. But, we, the people of the Lniled States chosei th0se who are to make the fateful decision, and it is up to %s to support them in every possible way. (One thing we cannot afford is national disunity. 'Wow is the time" not, to dwell on past mistakes or to indulge in postmortem's and, with the advantage of hindsight, proclaim what should have been done. The; government of the United States, being a government toi the people, cannot move faster than the will of ■ he people — and the people are you and me and our neighbors. "Now is the time," if we must express oursalves — and if we have carefully studied the situation — to write our congressmen precisely, what we feel about the crisis. (There is something abou•'< singing ones' name to a letter that moderates it considerably;) We have the right to express our concern to those who are in a position to do something about it. We'have not the right to talk at random. Our enemies in the past have often taken these reckless remarks to be the will of the American people — and it has cost in lives to convince them that when the chips are down, Americans are Ameiicans first — and a united nation. "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid" of the nation. To resist wild rumors, to evaluate; what they hear — and decide whether it is propaganda or fact — to stand firm, and to keep still!; Firm Moon Surface Scientists with the National Aeronautics and Space Ad- minis -ration have now summarized the conclusions to be drawn from the thousands of close-up photographs ta!;en on t*he moon by Surveyor 1. In essence, what they say is that the lunar surface is firm enough for a manned vehicle to land on. When men do step on to earth's luminous satelli'e for the first time, they may do so under the shield of an inter-1 national treaty governing exploration of the moon and other celestial bodies. The possibility was heightened when, on the very day of tlie NASA statement about Surveyor's disclosures, both the Uni*ed States and the Soviet Union submitted treaties bf this kind to the United Nations. Let us liope that agreement on such a treaty can greedily be reached.yTo attain and esxplore the moon is, in the, best sense, an undertaking of all mankind.
