You probably have noticed, as I have, how many supposedly good Americans are talkmg out of turn these da s. They probably don't mean any harm — at least I hope not. But they seem to have a compulsive urge to express their Views on any and all occasions, without really considerin? what their views are, how they sound +o others, and how "What they say reflects upon their own manners — to say nothing'of their morals or their patriotism. .Free sp ec is all right, but I do wish they would remember that the enemy is listening — and being pleased. The enemy is pleased with any evidence <of disunity. Each time we separate into groups, and stand upon the rights of any particular group, we please the enemy. For it was by the aid of such groupings that people of the npt'ons enslaved behind the Iron Curtain were divided and enslaved. The enemy is pleased when we are complacent. A complacent people is a lazy people, slow to action, rocking away too comfortably to notice the tornado until it is upon them. We please, the enemy with our overconfiuence, w>tn ou^ feeling that we can't be conquered. h. The enemy is pleased when we are cynically criHca" of £hose whom we ourselves have chosen to represent us. The enemy knows that the best way to befuddle a lead >• i co keep criticizing him. Thei best way to slow up action is to make a leader take off time to explain. We h-1' the wheels of progress when we pause to find fault or complain. The enemy is pleased when we stop to bargain. Those who won't join in action for the common good until they have "theirs" — whether "theirs" be profits, wag-s, preferential treatment, ,or special advantages — are perfect followers of the enemy — millstones around the neck of the nation ^--stumbling blocks-in-its: path. , .•..'."• The enemy is pleased when we allow hatred to sway us, when we permit old resentments, fancied wrongs, unbiased prejudices to dominate our actions, setting class against class, race against race, creed against creed The 'enemy knows full well how this saps a nation's strength. The enemy is pleased when we lack faith — when we allow tH& undercurrent of distrust to bog down our spirits, when we lose sight of the high goal before us. The enemy knows that a nation whose ideal is undermined by doubt is half conquered. These are the ways in which we can please the enemy. But — is this what WE really want to do? 'If I Grow Up...' A small boy and a small word have said more about poverty and perhaps said it better than the thousands of sentences of sentences put into print and speech since the government's war on poverty began. In the context used by an eight-year-old boy from a New York City slum, the word "if" gives an urgency to the problems of the severely deprived that a shelf full of government documents could not convey better. The hoy said, "If I grow up . . ." Not "When I grow up," as most children do, but "IF'. This, in one word, is what the war on poverty is about. Its fundamental purpose, is to assure for all children the expectation of a future. If that future can be made secure arid happy, so much tlie better, but first a future must be a reasonable assumption for all. Opinions vary on the proper way to achieve) this goal. •That is- to be expected, and the best programs can only De hampered, out in thorough discussions. Let us h-*pe, hcw- evei', that the urgency of the problems that poverty breed -will nW be forgotten by administrators in the co^plic tions £f .carrying out the program itself. Every child should have the unquestioned right to a future. None should have to say, "If I grow up . . ."■ Branny And Lonyevity •' , Aft intriguing bit of medical research is being undertaken by a famous New York ear surgeon, Dr. Samuel JRosen, in association with a team of Russian doctors. They are on the trail of a possible connection between, of all things, the acuteness of hearing and susceptibility to heart pjouble. The project is being carried on near the Black Sea, in the Cauoasus region of the Soviet Union. The area is a natural for such an investigation, since men and women of treat age ave relatively common there. The people of tne region Jh^ve little coronary heart disease, Dr. Rosen reports, &tid their hearing "seems to be veiy good." PJ^iiat is the connection? None that has as yet been iied. But Dr. Rosen thinks he has reason for believing-, Mi ihe basis of this study and others made in Finland, j_jiete and Yugoslavia, that there may be a relationship between' acute hearing and longevity. He hopes that eventually Mctors may be able, through hearing tests, to detect heart disease in its early stages. It is one more fascinating ex- i&mpte of the devious paths researchers follow in thei* pu**- WiH of jhedical advances,' "''■'* Claience E. Vogel, Lodge's First Master The Hon. Ben R. Evans, Grand Master of Masons in Ohio, will preside at the Dedication of the Lodge quarters and the Constitution and Consecration of the Lodge.

Herrington, senior warden; Virgil Harman, junior warden, and Gordon C. Curry, trustee. All are past masters of other Masonic lodges. The lodge will meet the first and third Tuesday of each month in the local quarter and meetings are open to all Masons. The formation of a Masonic Lodge in North Canton was an ambition of Wm. H. Hoover, who first suggested it in 1931. Due to economic and other adverse conditions existing at the time, the suggestion was not pursued. Again in 1941 the suggestion was advanced "by Carl F. Span- agel of Canton, then District Deputy Grand Master of Masons, but again no further action was taken. Proposed in 1962 In 1962 Chas.T. Bogardus and Chester L. Sterling, both members of the Masonic fraternity who had moved, their families to the local area, again proposed he formation of a M asoni'C Lodge in North Canton,. In the pring of 1964, Harry M. Morrow, District Deputy Grand Master, was advised of the proposal and :he first meeting was held on May 19, 1964 with fifteen in attendance. The second meeting was held m June 16, 1964, under the direction of the Grand Lodge representative with thirty-eight Ma- ions in attendance. An * Association was formed, known as the •'70 Association and initial plans were laid for the formation1 of .Vm. H. Hoover Lodge. ./ ; Dispensation was granted Sept. "i, 1966 and a Charter awarded Oct. 21, 1966.
