^raEE -V^JP^TTHO CAME TO MNNERf | @tt Prejudice Do you remember the story of the Southern judge who said fee eould always tell the way a jury-Would vote, provided he knew where lay the preponderance of prejudice. . He knew his people. Too often we-make up our minds not ajccox'ding to the facts,' even as we know them, but according to our prejudices, pur instinctive Jikes and dislikes. I once knew a man who used to say-'-generally in the mjds't c? my most hectic argument—that' a' Woman's intui- froHs jvere usually her suspicions.11 resented that. Naturally. Bu|r I have to admit that, if the Wording is changed to "initiiltioris are usually suspicious," the fact is correct. •We just don't use our heads once we get to arguing. We talk ih 'generalities, rather than on specific cases. We say our reason is that to b|e specific is to be rude. It isn't. If yoji see something of which you disapprove done by an individual, say so,.but keep your criticism for the individual and'"don't damn the group from which he comes as well. Don't lump people into one category. .You-wouldn't like it yourself, Doesn't it annoy you when anyone picks out one person from-your group, and says all members of-the--group, are crooks because this ior that one isn't a plaster saint? . Ypu instinctively come to his defense, in order to defend yoti g*roup. v(An<J you usually make matters worse by so doing, Because you make up in.heat what you lack in facts.) ! And yet^on't you often do the same thing? Don't let us be swayed by our prejudices. Let us keep o^iir oWn thoughts clear and above sucli reprehensible practices; And let's, jipt.cojn..phrases. It jsn'tany better than Coining money—and usually the product is just as false. At some time or other we have all suffered frpm pre judice. Now in the present state of world tension, Which re fleets itself in intensified feelings at home, let us be particularly careful not to be governed by\our emotions. We must keep cool, stick to the facts, and not allow prejudice— °h_cl|i in too many cases is lack of knowledge—to rear its ly head among us. Piress freedom Declines I-'.'1 The common picture of the world slowly but steadily ^merging into the light of universal press freedom does not quite jibe with actual conditions. The Freedom of Information Center at the University of Missouri reports that the fiutnber of countries in which the press is relatively uncon- rarolled by the government: declined instead of increasing last year. When the Center made its first survey in 1966, it judged that there was a free press in 55 countries. That compares with only 47 in its 1^67 listing. > .£he situation is not quite as dark, happily, as this makes appear. For whereas the 1966 study found 39 countries 1th a controlled press and 10 in a stage of transition, the ft figures show only 26 with a controlled press aiid li ing a transitional press system moving toward greater .dom. Twenty-one countries were unrauked for lafck of ficient information in 1966, and 31 last year. ' liven though the number of nations in the "controlled s" Category has gone down, however, the statistical pic- ••*>]_'£*.s on *^e whole disheartening evidence that the move- ttiffiEvt' toward press freedom' is slow and erratic. Sometimes ^puntrfes whose press was once comparatively free t&ke 'a Backward step, as in the- case of Greece following seizure of §ie government by a military junta, ' ' , iill this is of far more than academic interest to Ameri- tSEtps. Wherever governments censor the free flow of iraorm- Ttlon, liberty is crippled andj so are the prospects of a tetter Mid order. The University of Missouri survey shows' th_Lt lif sfill have a long ways to go before understanding bk- **en peoples is bolstered by an unimpeded flow of?neWs ^eas.

The report |recbmmended do ing away with the park and institutional designation, because it permits the same uses allowed in. single family residential areas/ and it also restricts qsage if property is gold. Several persons in the group disagreed, stating that the,zone was -planned ' to reserve such land for public use -and that, some-of it would not be,suitable for residences. Also "discussed were recommendations to permit more off street parking-in all zoning dis-- tricts and provisions for a limited type and number of offices or businesses on the grouhd floor of * high -density apartment buildings. . ■■'■•■ , The report: also said some decision should be made whether or not the city, will penpit higji rise apartments.

The commerce division of the drive, headed by Harry Mestel and Benjamin Lavin, is to kick- off Thursday with the industrial and special gifts divisions launching their efforts next week. Malone, a Quaker school, opened its doors in 1957 as Canton's first degree-granting college.

Combined enrollment of the two colleges for the fall semester was 2,124—three times the total of eight years ago.

This was a recommendation of the capital campaign committee of the Canton Welfare Federation last year when it approve*, the joint campaign and the goal of $2,250,000. Only $50,000, or 2.2 per cent, of the goal has been alio ted for campaign expenses. Abput 300 volunteer workers will conduct the drive in the metropolitan area from Feb. 5 -20. They will solicit pledtes that will be payable over two years. The campaign -co-directors are i '-Herbert "E." Hallm'an. - director of ! development for Malnne Cniippe, \ and Raymond R. Rufo assistant to the president of Walsh College. Headquarters for the campaign has been established at the United Fund Building, 618 2nd St.- NW. Canton. Money from the }oint campaign, combined with federal funds., will enable Malone to construct the new library at an estimated cost of $1.350.000: convert the present librarv *o a leo ture-repital-d-ama hall." $120,000: and construct a physical plant (maintenance-) building. "5120.000. Malone hopes to begin "construction of the library this spring and complete it by the fall of 1970. fs Dr. Thomas H. Hoover Richard A. Gulling The JAree-level. library designed" by Canton architects Lawrence, Dykes, Goodenberger and Bower, will provide space for 100,000 volumes, more than double the capacity of the present library. The new library will include a microfilm room, seminar- rooms, faculty study, faculty and staff lounges, 25 ■ student study carrels, 120-seat auditorium, exhibit gallery, language and abilities laboratories, studio television room and a Friends library, The present library will be converted into a small theater, a large lecture hall for classes and a recital hall for music and drama.
