■A WAY TO CREATE LOCAL JOBS Thirst For Power In their endless drive for greater authority over the Kves of the citizenry, federal bureaucrats resort to an almost ritualistic mode of operation to gain their objective—they thrust protection on people regardless of whether they need it or even want it. This has never been more vividly demonstrated than in the current bureaucratic campaign for enactment of a complex of laws, virtuously labeled as requisite to "consumer protection," when in actual fact they would work to the disadvantage of the buying public by clamping a strait jacket on the operation of the market place. In the armory of weapons rigged by the self- appointed protectors to enable them to force their intrusion into the processing and sale of goods, are legislative bills that would: Permit government dictation of the size, weight, content and labeling of packaged goods. Prohibit bargain sales through censorship of related advertising. Restrict the extension" of credit. As they beat the bushes — through local meetings and massive publicity—to gain support for the bills, the bureaucrats are spreading the completely false insinuation that consumers must be shielded from the merchants in their communities, from the sales people with whom, they deal, from the advertisers whose products they buy because they are all out to cheat them. Completely ignored by the purveyors <of this Un* founded^h^gis^i^l;^ 4^$mb ltHaW4^*l^tss^ consumers, in eveiy possible way, already are more than amply T»rotected by existing federal, state and local laws, "f It is our opinion that if the consumers need any additional protection at all, they heed to be protected from the bureaucrats who are endeavoring, with every trick in the book, to sell them a package of laws that would prove detrimental to their, and the nation's, best interests. A Sound Investment You'll not find your local houses of worship Ksted on the stock market, but we believe that there is no better investment for our citizens than shares in the ongoing work of churches and synagogues. Dividends are not paid is cash. Rather you find a high interest rate in the more fruitful experience of living, an enlarged sense of well-being for having volunteered services unselfishly, and a deeper appreciation of your fellowmen who need your helping hand — all of which adds up to a better community for everyone. This type of investment in time and money takes you into a partnership with other men and women of our town and around the world, not to mention the important partnership it offers with the Creator. Such a sound investment, combined with an extremely valuable rate of interest, offers a rare opportunity. It would benefit all of us to take advantage of it by worshipping at the church or synagogue of our choice each week. More Seed Money For Growth There are 5'/_ million independent businesses in the United States today. The overwhelming majority are small businesses, some of which may grow to become substantial corporate enterprises. Small business firms help to provide stable employment and a tax source to ease the burden of personal property and real estate taxes in local communities. Most businesses start small. Often their greatest challenge is to conserve and expand working capital to improve day-to-day operations and profits. However, access to outside funds, is limited and costly. __ TJnder the present code alt corporations pay a basic tax of 22 per cent on all set profit and those with net income above $25,000 pay an additional surtax of 26 per cent. The value of the surtax exemption, which dates from 1950, has been eroded by inflation, but it' still is considered the basic small business relief provision having the widest application. Sen. John G. Tower (R-Texas) has introduced legislation to increase the surtax exemption level to $100,000 in a constructive effort to assist small business in accumulating capital. If such legislation is passed, it would put small businesses 'in,,a; better position to expand operations, generate employment, and, in; tyrri, provide more taxable income at the local level. Congress should take this constructive step. ishat Vol. mmmw**0fme%i+W*em. 49 - No. 23 - One Section 18 Area Eagle Scouts To Be In 72 Class Eighteen local boys will be among the 128 Eagle Scouts who will be honored at the 14th annual Eagle Scout Recognition dinner set for Thursday, Feb. 17, at 6:30 p.m. at Mergus Restaurant.

"But much of the money is already committed. We plan to pay off our indebtedness as quickly as possible and this means no more capital improvements for some years. "Although the city has a $60.8 million valuation it receives only 4.5 mills from the total," he added. "Our financial situation is healthy but most of our money is committed for past obligations.

Student Session Thursday On New Youth Center Here // 'v SPECIALTY Concerned youth of the community will have an opportunity Thursday, Feb. 17, to put their energies to work for the youth center that has been two years in the planning stage by the North Canton Commuidty Relations Committee. A meeting is set for 7 p.m. in the lecture room at Hoover High School for the primary purpose of forming a youth steering committee for the center. They will also be enlisting the support of young people to staff the center. According to Randy Stortz, committee spokesman for the project, the committee has determined by research over, the past two years that North Canton youth desire a "place" to call their own, where they can interact socially and intellectually. It was also found that this ♦'place" should have a relaxed atmosphere, free from institutional roles. -Site Offered- In an effort to meet this established need, a group of adults have begun to form and incorporate a board of directors to take advantage of an offer of a large old home on S. Main St. to be used as a youth center. ( "■■', Mr. Stortz reports it is the intention of the adult board that a youth steering committee will actually run the center, but, moreover, a great deal of ' 'youth power" will be required to open and maintain the center. 'If the youth are honest in saying that they want a "place", "they will come forward committed to taking advantage of an opportunity long in coming to the area. If, however, the pleas are mere lip-service, student apathy will kill the opportunity," Mr. Stortz said. ,.;, Phil Hartong, Sharon Plnder, Jim White, Sue Kramer, Todd Werstler and Jackie Farbeann are the student committee for the Thursday night session. SILVER ANNIVERSARY YEAR. The husband- wife team of Ann and George Armour are in the silver anniversary year of their business partnership as owners of George-Ann's Specialty Shop. The parent store is now all settled in at a new location, 954 S. Main St. where 2,700 sq. feet of sales space is devoted to displays of lingerie, jewelry, accessories and the medium to better ready-to-wear sports clothes and dresses featured in their complete ladies specialty shop. After opening their first store at 123 S. Main St. in 1946, they expanded to open their Amherst Park Shopping Center store in Massillon in 1957. The 60's saw the opening of a downtown Canton George-Ann's but this was moved in 19«j9 to the 30th St. Plaza, where they also maintain an alteration department that services the three stores. In addition to their personal buying trips to "market," the Armours are affiliated with a residential buying service in New York City that makes access to most East coast based fashion houses just a telephone call away. Geogre is a past president of the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce.
