DOMESTIC PROBLEM A Questioning Mind I think that one of the most useful qualities, gifts, or what-have-you, that anyone can possess is that of a questioning mind. I do not mean the mind that delights in deflation or over-inquisitiveness. That sort of mind doesn't think—it merely combats. Ra'iher do I mean the mind that wants to know the facts, that in its desire to grow and to leam, does not assume all-knowledge and feels self-confidence enough to admit that fact. The, mind that; questions statements in order to leam their source and so to judge what to accept and what to discard. That kind of a questioning mind is particularly valuable in election years, particularly when issues are colored and intensified out of proportion by overlaying tensions and by personal, national and world prejudices. Then is the time for the questioning mind to go to work and <o dig down deep for the sources of the statements made so glibly and with such apparent knowledge and forethought on the part of the speakers, or writers. "What is the authority for your statement?" "Are you citing provable facts or are you interpreting them?" "Are you giving ALL the facts or ONLY those that tend to prove your point?" If 'dhe speaker, or writer, or candidate's position is sound, he will welcome the opportunity and to drive home his arguments. Then there is the old question, which you probably heard from your grandmother, as I did from mine, "Whose ox is being gored?" In short, "who will be benefited by suggested ac don?" "How will it affect all the people?" "Is the plan one of privilege for a small group only?" "Why are you personally for the) plan?" There is one old-time legislator who, it is said, for years,, made one^ speech on any new project brought up— "Where are you going to get the money?" That is a very good question to ask—but. the .questioning mind goes further. "It'is a-good plan—but will it increase MY taxes? Do I want it enough to help pay for it." And—"Are the people who are for it going to help foot> the bill?" To these questions, you will add many mors of your own. Be sure you get the answers long before the next election day rolls around so that your vote will be cast for the things in which you believe. And while you are about it, don't just ask questions of your opponents. Start with your own party first, so you will be sure of their position. The Coming 'Boom9 Boom The citizen who periodically jumps out of his skin under the impulse of a sonic boom has one small consolation. Considerable study is being focused on how the man-made thunderclaps affect people and structures. This is but cold comfort. It is an excellent bet that the problem of sonic boom is going to become a lot worse before effete Ive ways of mininizing it are found. At present most communities experience only an occasional boom, usually when a military plane flashes by. But when the supersonic I transports begin criss-crossing the nation, the booms may become commonplace. | The American SST, still being developed, probably will not take to the airways until 1974. Even then it is expected to fly mainly over oceans. But the British-French Concords may be available within a year, and these planes have been ordered by airlines which fly mainly over the, continental United Sates, i The booms following in their wakes will no doubt be charged to "progress." Still, it is important for Americans \ to understand how these superfast commercial planes can affect their daily lives on the ground. A sonic boom is not an isolated blast. It is a cone of noise that hits everyone and everything in the flight path. Reports on damage caus-, ed by sonic booms show that sound s'ructures can withstardj a limited number of blasts without trouble. What effect reg-' ular flights on the same path over a period of years will have on buildings and nerves remains to be seen. When the booms become a regular thing, a public outcry or some curb on them is almost sure to be heard. With this in mind, the present efforts to leam more about the feooms and how to lessen their impact should be intensified.

Fair Zone Change Studies Face Local Planners Just Some Facts There are some important facts that we all should know abou% facts that will help us to prevent a vastly higher level of Federal spending in the future. They are facts that are going up and up. They are: gince 1960 the personnel comprising the civilian payroll of the Federal government has grown by 25 per cent. Since 1960 the cost of government payrolls, including the mili'ary, has grown by 75 per cent. Since 1960, non-defense expenditures of the government are up 97 per cent. Since 1960, expenditures for national welfare and health programs are up 210 per cent. These are just a few items that all Americans should consider. Fac'js that show there is a strong possibility that government spending will double again in the 1970's, unless ;a major change in attitude takes place. It is being predicted vthat we will have a '$300 billion Federal budget by 1980. . We wonder if ..th:© people really want this much government. 'Are...we wijjjng to pay for it? Can we pay for it? Yoiif Wgisl'atoys in Washington would like to know what jrou think! The wisdom of easing restrictions on conditional-use zoning permits is being studied by North Canton Planning Commission. At its monthly session Tuesday night, the commission elected to postpone its recommendations to City C uncil until after its Oct. 2 meeting. They plan to confer with th( Stark County Regional Planner and City Law Director Robert Mylett on the wisdom of any relaxation in the present restrictions oi the Revised Zoning Ordinance adopted last year. The question arose after th< Hoover Co. requested a zon change for temporary office us: of residential property on S. Mai. St. The present zoning ordinanc makes it impossible to issue ; conditional use permit in thi; case. Russell Youtz, Ward 2 counci' man and Council's representativ to Planning Commission, sai there are no provisions at pres ent for use for a limited timr with no major alterations to prop erty. James Casner, commission member, said he agreed there should be provision for a temporary situation to better meet the needs of the community. Youtz expressed fear of opening an area to speculation and development. Planners also were presented with a zone change request which they cannot act upon until it has been submitted to City Council, and referred hack to them. Carl R., Donald L., and Barry R. Braucher, are requesting a zoning change on part of a seven acre tract they said they wish to levelop with duplexes in the 330,000 class. The area is bounded on the outh by 11th St. NW, which is not yet developed, the Lehman >ri .perty on the west, and Snydei .'railer Court property on the east md north. On thewestern side, he property extends north of the .■ailer court. Renting for approximately $175 half, they, would have about 300 square feet of area, a two xr garage, two or three bedroom .% baths, dishwasher, and dis- osal. Electric utilities would be mderground and streets and idewalks would be constructed. Some lots would be sold to in- estors but with restrictions as to ot size and exterior finish of juildings. The developers would ask the :ity to extend certain sewer and water lines and they would complete others. The proposed zone change would involve an area approximately 160 feet back from the southern boundary line of the property. The Brauchers alsoSajhSl they would move many smaller trees from the western section of the area to the eastern part Dennis Smith 19, was awarded ed a $125 Repository scholarship Wednesday, evening, Aug. 30 at the "Best of 4-H Show' festivities for the 118th Stark County Fair. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Cyrillas Smith of 1723 Schneider St. NE. Also, a recipient of the scholarships was Janet Stauffer, 18, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Stauffer of 9460 St. Peter's Church Rd., Alliance. The awards were presented for the outstanding boy and girl in 4-H activities for the year. Dennis who is a 1966 graduate of Glenwood High School has completed one year at Ohio State's College of Agriculture. Dennis works a 40-hour week as a field hand on the Hoover farm and then goes home to help his father on their 130-acre dairy farm. He's been helping out on the farm since the first grade. He has been active in 4-H for 10 years and has served as president of the Plain Township Boys 4-H Club for three years. Dennis also was treasurer of the Stark County Junior Fair Board last year and vice president of the 4-H Junior Leaders. At Ohio State where he achieved a 2.7 grade average for his freshman year, he was a member of the University Chorus and will be initiated into Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity this fall. Dennis who is interested in agriculture has not decided •vhat phase to purse because the field is so wide. He likes dairy cattle, but does not particularly like the long hours involved. He is a member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and has served as treasurer of the church's youth group. Both Janet and Dennis will be School Guard Force Grows To Six Here at the fair with the projects that nelped them win the scholarships.

August 30 Storm Causes Damage in North Canton Last Wednesday night's storm was described as the converging of two thunderstorms on the area reported personnel of the U. S. Weather Bureau at Akron- Canton Airport who visited the Applegrove Rd.-Market Ave. vicinity Thursday morning Aug. 31. The storm occured between 7r30 and 8 p.m. Aug. '30 as galelike winds, lightning and heavy rain zigzagged across the vicinity. The rainfall measured 1.10 inches at the airport but heavier amounts fell at the center of the storm's intensity. A weather bureau spokesman said it had been believed the storm had some characteristics of a tornado but further examinations by meteorologists disproved that theory. W H L O radio, serving the Akron-Canton area, reported that North Canton was the area hit worst in Stark County. There were 65 phones out of order here. Capt. James Bardin, acting police chief in North Canton, called the storm "the worst I have seen in the 19 years I have been here. Mayor Charles B. Strausser was attending the banquet for Hoover High School's football team at the Elks Club when trees were blown onto cars on the club's parking lot. The mayor said, "Part of the meal was eaten in darkness and the speaker began his talk by candlelight!" Extra policemen and a radio operator were called out as 'calls began coming in regarding storm damage. Calls concerning water in basements came in so .fast they could not be logged. A short circuit in the new fire alarm system triggered off the buzzers. Some wires were downed' at St. Luke's Home for the Aged, but ho damage was reported." Many trees were down on Woodrow St. NW and there were reports of tree damage on Overland Park and Holl Sts. NW. In other parts of the city many trees were damaged to the extent that they will have to be cut down. A two ear garage at the home of William P. Yingling of 2646 Applegrove Rd. NW was blown away and destroyed. A car that had been in the garage was damaged. Two other homes on Applegrove Rd., one on Chapel Hill Dr. NW and one on Chatham Dr. NW were also damaged and a garage wall was blown down at the home of Jerry Nicholson of 2646 Hyacinth Dr. NW. Electric wires were hanging from poles on Hyacinth Dr. and trees were blown down across Pittsburg Rd. NW. A fire on a pole on Applegrove Rd. NE east of Market Ave. was extingushed by the Middle- branch Fire Department. Ohio Power reported that with the exception of the Applegrove area damage, there were only minor power failures north and west of Nortii Canton. ~-f^p^»feW '* ^ \^*&m 'W7*tt- S FIRST TEAM AWARD.
