BLESSINGS OF PRODUCTIVITY Thanksgiving 1971 Tlhe Pilgrim Fathers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony first celebrated Thanksgiving in November, 1621 to thank God for the bountiful harvest. Undergoing the rigors of the hostile wilderness, this small hand of men and women carved out a future by the sweat of their brows anid a few crude tools. With the help and assistance of some friendly Indians, new foods and fruits found their way to the festive board. The successful fruit of their labor were a tribute to their productivity and they, in turn, shared what • they toald produced with their Indian neighbors. It is this same driving force which has motivated this country in the years since the first Thanksgiving. It has enabled us to become the most prosperous and the most generous nation in the world. Through increased productivity we can continue to prosper and to share our bountiful harvest with those less fortunate. Cats On A Leash Dog- leashing ordinances are a common civic response to a problem found in most communities. There is good reason for such controls: in some towns without them the; situation has gotten so bad that free- ranging dogs* have formed packs , which are at best a nuisance arid at worst a serious threat to children. Cats ar^ anotiher matter, if only because they tend to be Ijbne operators. Yet cats on the loose can be a nuisance, too. They hunt songbirds, raid garbage cans, And tin occasion give unwelcome attention to childrenV sandboxes. It is <J^fntere4t that Shakopee, Minn., now has a cat leashing ordinance following a referendum. It will be ef even greater interest to learn how it works out, considering the well known feline distaste for any form of restraint. Expertise On China It is often rather glibly said that Americans know very little about modern China. So far as the average person or even the average political leader is concerned, this is essentially true. It could scarcely be otherwise, given the fact that for more than 20 years there has been almost no direct American contact with the mainland Chinese. Foitunately, the picture is not quite as dismal as this might suggest. As our government moves toward improvement of relations with the Chinese, it can draw upon substantial expertise which has been maintained during China's isolation. Attention is called to this by the Ford Ftounda- .tion's announcement of further grants in aid of Asian /studies. These include $1,144,600 for post-doctoral research en China, Japan and Korea under auspices otf the Social Science Research Council. The Asia Society is receiving $200,000 to finance activities to heighten American understanding of contemporary Asia. Continued exchanges of American and Japanese legislators are made possible by a $130,000 grant to Columbia University. Ford Foundation grants for such purposes are nothing new: for the past several years they have to: tailed around half a million dollars annually to the SSRC and committees of the American Council of Learned Societies. Since 1952, support for scholarly studies on China has totaled about 28 million dollars. The Ford Foundation, justifiably proud that these funds "have helped train a new generation of China experts," deserves our gratitude as a new era in United States-Chinese relations gets under way. Them's Just No Telling With the spotlight focused on the Rehnquist and Powell nominations, it is worthwhile to bear in mind that men chosen for the Supreme Court do not always behave as anticipated once they are on the court. This thought lends perspective to the present confirmation proceedings in the Senate. President Nixon has .made it plain that he believes William H. Rehnquist and Lewis Powell share his conservative, law-and-order philosophy. This seems evident on the basis of their records, but history shows that presidents are sometimes disappointed by decisions their appointees later render. President Eisenhower, if still living, could testify to that. The liberal course pursued by the Supreme Court while Earl Warren was chief justice was distasteful to Eisenhower, and quite unexpected. Little in Warren's past record as attorney general and governor of California, and Dewey's running mate in 1948, had foreshadowed his performance on the court. President Eisenhower's disappointment may have extended to another of his Supreme Court appointments, William J. Brennan. He has voted regularly with the court's more liberal members. Early in the century President Theodore Roosevelt was much surprised that Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, the Massachusetts jurist who had been promoted by him, repeatedly disagreed with TR's political philosophy. President Wilson soon regretted choosing James B. McReyjiolds as his attorney general. £>\m Vol. 49 • No. 11 • Two Sections 30 Pages NORTH CANTON, OHIO.
