Hodgson, but he points out an alarming trend. From 1965 to just a few months ago, our national productivity growth index dropped, well below that of competing nations. During the) same period Japan's productivity increased at a 13 per cent rate; The Netherlands' well over 10 per cent; France's, Germany's and Sweden's all- in the; neighborhood of 6 to 7 per cent. Secretary Hodgson warns, "It won't take long for the rest of the world to catch up, and we'tt find ourselves increasingly unable to compete for our share of the world's markets." Recently the President established a National Commission on Productivity to find ways to stimulate productivity growth. Labor and management must both understand that, while productivity gains are vital, they need not and indeed should not be obtained at the cost of busman hardship. However, the American worker must. recognize the only way he can increase his real wages is through increased productivity. We really do not have a choice between quantity and quality. We must have both or we'll have neither. Doug Adair, well known "anchor man" on| TV Channels '#BC jtewsday 90" and "Eleventh Hour News," will be the featured speaker for the beginning of the "United Christian Witness. Week/4 sponsored by the Greater Canton Council of Churches, TEA and Church Women United. He will appear Sunday, Jan. 17 at Christ United Presbyterian Church of W. fuse, Canton, at 7:30 p.m; Mr. Adair, a well known Episcopal layman and lay speaker, will, speak on "The Silent Church.". Dinner Jan. 19 A Bit Of Intelligence Anyone who ^hinks about it is soon forced to rthe, cohclusUm^hafcwW^a*eVi>Ia$ueo>r^^^#(f*^^n^ telKgent driving T$is is not qmte t^e same as paying there are a lot of unmt'elfigettt drivers, though that may also be true. What we have in mind is that a great number of people simply do not apply much intelligence to the task of driving. There seems to be a widespread view —which in itself springs from no great depth of thought, to say the least—that driving is in the main a kind of rudimentary skill which makes little demand on the brain. It is seen, except by those who consider it & sport, as merely a technique for getting from one place to another. That is, to put it bluntly, plain folly, Driving might be just a matter of tooling along, with minimal attention to traffic signals and the rules of the road, if traffic were about 10 times less than it is, in the average! community. Then, in the normal course of. events, there would be few challenges requiring the exercise of intelligence. Under actual conditions, this is just not the case. Driving in ordinary (which is to say many-vehicled and fast) traffic demands not only unremitting attention but the exercise of intelligence. The intelligence, for example, to hold off passing until things clear up a hit; the intelligence to yield rather than insist on the right of way; the intelligence to drop well below the speed limit when surface and visibility conditions are poor. If a majority of drivers were to follow this simple injunction to apply intelligence to their performance at the wheel, there might be a lot fewer accidents. /pOUG ADAIR Mr. Adair'was born in Xenia and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in radio and television at Northwestern University in Evanston, 111.'

Resolutions Maybe it's our imagination; but we don't seem to hear as much these days about "New Year resblu- , tions' as we) once did. Maybe its because everybody is too busy trying to fill the old ones! Btit if there is : one, good, all-round, ready-to-measure resolution fori 1971, the loner-standing;creed of the Optimists Inters national could serve as a pretty good model.

Mr. Page said that general fund appropriations are down to $578,069 in 1971 compared to- $605,704 last year, because of a smaller carry-over this year. i "We had only some $16,000 at the end of the year," he stated, "compared to about $50,000 last year." "We must watch our expenditures very closely this year," he added. "We're cutting back in all departments to stay within the budget." The largest departmental appropriation is for the water department with $342,624. The sewer revenue fund totals $194,000. In other business, Council: APPROVED borrowing of $150,000 for construction of a new municipal swimming pool. The city has already received a $200,000 donation from The Hoover Foundation. Efforts to obtain federal funding for the remaining money were not successful. Howard Warburton, Council's finance committee chairman, said the original pool plans were modified to trim some $72,000 from the project, but the city was still short$139,000. "We will probably needextra money for sewer work and grading," he said. It was added that the sewer permit was obtained before the building freeze. Completion of the pool is hoped for by June 1. It is also planned that it will be self supporting through collection of fees, which are also expected to eventually pay off the debt.
