iCTFLYJMWt Stop And Think-First! There is one and only one way to stop any and all hate stories, rumors, and malicious gossip — whether they be directed at political parties or individuals, labor or industry, Black?- or Whites, Protestants, Catholics or Jews. It is a job that is up to you and me, to each and every one <f£ us who believes in the brotherhood of man and the democratic way of life. We can't alibi nor shirk the task. The.only person to do it is the individual himself. "If you can't write it and sign it — don't say it" should be our- slogan. I cribbed that sentence from an article written -by Robert Butler, shipbuilder in Duluth, and what is more to the point, it will do the job. Of course if people adhered to it, there would be many moments of silence —• which we could all survive without hardship. Most people talk too much anyway. Test the idea on yourself. I've found that a good way to counteract rash statements is to say to the speakers, "That's very interesting. Let me write it down. I know you won't mind if I quote you but I want to be sure I get it just; straight." Well, what happens is that the final statement isn't even a reasonable facsimile of the original. Listen to your own conversation some time. How much of it would,you be willing to sign? Rrecious little, I bet. If you.: aren't willing to back up your own charges, don't makje:them; If you aren't willing to stand by what you say, don'i say it. Put that slogan into practice and the result will be that you'll, make only accurate statements. You will not exaggerate. Y«u will not show prejudice. You will not allow your personal.feelings to color-your speech. And what will that mean to you? You'll develop a reputation for acdarac^j..|o_.?logicv for. reasoned -speech — because'you will tend to understate, r^tfieaTthan overstate. You:.know, how you: judge th6. ppiMon of others, hovy you respect, "the man who is always proven right. You may. not be as sensational aa a coirversationlist, but you will be one to whom people will listett ahd' vtfioin th'ey'll'quote because they Jtnow .you're dependable.' "If you can't write.-it and sign it — don't say it." Let's make that our personal motto. It really works. Responsibility And Action . The 91st Congress will be faced with many major problems- when it coHWnes'.in January. Now is the time for m&hbfers of Congress, as well as those chosen'tb direct the executive' department, to do their homework. Now is the time to cull out programs .which have proved to be ineffectual btlcomplete failures. It is a time to weigh the relative merits of various projects, set price tagg, for them, and establish priorities. It. is also time for the federal government to reassess its rote in the lives of Americans and return decision-making to the. people and the marketplace. Between now, and January there is ample time to get acquainted with your legislators in Washington. They need tokiffWrjust *whdt you expect of government. Do you want inCre&Sed' federal control over individual rights? Do you wanfe-your' tax dollars to be spent for more government burea&a.td- help solve social and educational problenis?

Thomas p.-obably be six months before Office Building & Associates, consulting engi neers, he wrote to the regional office in Chicago of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to ask about the possibility of a federal grant to finance half of the project. Their reply asked for a statement that the plan would fit in with county and city planning from both the Stark County Regional Planning Commission and North Canton's city planners. A letter from North Canton is to be prepared and approved by local planners. The request for $3,112,285, to be matched by local funds, was to be reviewed Tuesday night when Regional Planning Commission met at the County Office Building. New Plant, Wells, Towers Plans call for a $3 million water plant, development of three more raw water wells, and three new water towers. One presently used well and the city's two water towers would be abandoned. A 26.5 square mile service area would cover North Canton, and parts of Jackson and Plain townships bounded by Mt. Pleasant Rd. on the north, Market Ave. on the east, 50th St. on the south, and Frank Rd. on the west. Canton city officials are expected to present a proposal to North Canton offering to furnish water to the area from Canton's water system. Page said the city would study any offer and compare it with plans .presented by:: its consultants. "Page said: the--plah' would fe implemented in' stages and would take care of the area's needs until 1985, "with provisions for additions to serve demands until 199g. To Take Four Years He said it would take about .our years to put the new fa..UK- ties into operation. -Financing rould be done by increasing water rates or income tax or by a bond issue or a combination of these methods, he stated. . Site of the water facility and wells would be on 22 acres of city-owned land in • the • Dressier Rd. area between Freedom St. and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks. The area is a gravel type field. He said present city- water pumping capacity is about 3 million gallons per day, and the new plant and wells, could . increase this to about 8 million gallons. Page cited the need for more water' for fire protection, also. Treatment of the waterwould Include chlorination, s6£tening, re- the city knew where it stood in the line for funds and another six months before it received any money. This would not delay preparation of plans, he added. The city now has about 3,600 water customers, largest being The Hoover Co. j Guidance Seminar Pec. 11 for Hoover Juniors - Parents Mrs. JoAnn Palmer, guidance director at Hoover High, announces an evening seminar for Hoover juniors and their parents to be held Wednesday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m. at the Hoover High lecture room.
