A BASKETFUL OF HOPES ®fa> %>tm Vol. 49 ■ No. 29 • Two Sections 2« Pages NORTH OANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29,1972 10c per copy; $4.50 per year by Mail; $6.00 Outside County Easter 1972 Spring brings Easter and the wonderful, joyous feeling of a new beginning—« rebirth of spirit and energy. Nature is the embodiment of this rebirth and the older a person becomes, the more* joy there is in watching the world come back to life. ^ This year our national spirit, too, needs revitali- zation. Young and oid, esterners and westerners, workers and management in this melting pot of ethnic and political backgrounds that is America, all share the same goals of peace and prosperity for all. Just as spring is a time for Nature's growth, so our economy must grow and become more productive to compete in world markets. Successful resolutions of past differences have made us strong. There is great hope for the future. Heart Crash Program It is a fair guess that Congress will again commit itself to a crash program approach to a major health program. Last year the legislators authorized a massive anti-cancer effort financed with 1.6 billion dollars in federal money. Now a bill has been introduced to deal! similarly with diseases of the heart and circulatory system, and the support evidenced augurs well for early enactment. As in the case of the cancer bill, this new proposal has been introduced by Sen. Edward M. Kenr nedy anH JJepT Paul <i:Mj^^W^^V^, in their capacities as chairman of Senate and House pubHc health subcommittees, who guided the prior measure to passage in 1971. -,,.-■ The phrase "crash program" is used advisedly with reference to the proposed attack on heart and blood vessel diseases, though not with any derogatory implication. According to Rogers, federal money devoted to this purpose totaled 232 million dollars this year. What the bill contemplates is roughly doubling this, in dollar terms, by allocating $1.3 billion for stepping up federal research control undertaking over a three-year period. Such a concntration of effort ought to have an impressive impact. Rogers was understandably optimistic on this point. "With full implementation of this legislation," he said, "I feel confident that we can substantially reduce heart disease as the nation's number one killer within the decade." This does not seem to be an exaggerated view of what might be accomplished ovfcr the next few years. Besides, considering the economic cost of heart disease—an estimated 30 billion, dollars a year—the amount sought for this program would be a very good long-term investment. Need For Mass Transporation The idea that the federal Highway Trust Fund is sacrosanct and must not be used for any non-higjh- way purpose has been outmoded by events. Much opposition to the proposed Federal-aid Highway Act of 1970 does not take this into consideration. This failure may reflect either lack of understanding or an inordinate special interest in keeping the fund under tight highway-use restrictions. . , That was once the sensible course, lest raids on . the fund delay the great interstate highway program \ that has been going on for so many years. Today, the situation has markedly changed. For one thing, the highway network envisioned by the planners of this program has been pushed weB toward completion. Meanwhile, there has been a major shift in our country's population—a shift, from rural areas and small towns to urban centers, which continues. This in turn has led to increasingly congested urban traffic conditions. The most important way of easing that congestion is to provide greatly improved mass-transit systems. This is not something to be considered apart from highways and their rising burden of privat3 cars. The challenge before us is to devise and cn ate transportation systems that will move peopk faster than private auto traffic permits. This is not at all to say that the private car should be relegated to second-class status. What we are saying is that the whole transportation problem should be dealt with in a coordinated way so optimum use can be made of both private cars and mass transit systems. There is no sound reason why the Highway Trust Fund should not be drawn upon for both these interrelated purposes. Rotary Sending Hoover Seniors To Conference Myron K. Bircher, President of the North Canton Rotary Club, has announced the selection of Seniors Jim White and Todd Werstler, from Hoover High School, to attend the Twenty- Sixth Annual World Affairs Institute in Cincinnati on April 7 and 8. Handy Wolf, Rotary Club member, will act as chaperone. One thousand students from Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia will participate in the two-day meeting, as guests of their local Rotary Clubs. The topic for the 1972 Institute is: "United States, Canada and Western Europe: Shared Heritage, Shared Problems." Outstanding authorities from the field of international affairs will brief the students and conduct informal discussions. The Institute provides an opportunity for selected students to understand a major issue confronting the people and the government of the United States. This year's topic will be concerned with problems common to industrial countries ofthe Atlantic Region, such as urban development and the environment, economic cooperation, and defense strategy. Participants and their adult leaders, in addition to a comprehensive program of vital information about an important area of international concern, will be afforded an opportunity to tour educational and cultural institutions in Cincinnati. The social highlight of the meeting will be a dinner dance at the famous Hall of Mirrors of the Netherland Hilton Hotel. The World Affairs Institute s organized and sponsored by the Cincinnati Council on World Affairs, Avco Broadcasting Corp., and Rotary Club of Cincinnati. Bus Serviced City Expected By April 22 North Canton will have bus service by Apr. 22, the Canton- North Canton Regional Transit Authority announced last Wednesday night. Joseph Duzan, board of trustees chairman, said routes will come from Canton on Cleveland Ave. N to North Canton square and as far north as Applegrove Rd. A route also will travel Market Ave. N to Walsh College and across Easton St. into the North Canton square. There will be four runs daily, in the morning and afternoon. Two more mid-day runs are expected to be added, Duzan said. Fare to North Canton will be 40 cents. Extension of service to the Stark County Regional Campus of Kent State University is expected by the fall term. Service to Belden Village should come much sooner, Duzan said. Initial routing is intended to get factory and offlce employees to North Canton and home again. A Joint Canton-North Canton study committee was appointed to oversee general operations. These include Canton councilman James Hutter, John Lucas Jr., Thomas E. Angelo and Herman P. Rossetti and North Canton councilman Dale Gerber, William Mutchmore and Glenn Wehl. The board also decided to hire .former Canton City Solicitor Martin Hunker as legal counsel on a yearly contract basis.

Two locations are scheduled for the 2 p.m. "hunts", Price and Dogwood Parks. Youngsters will hunt in four age groups, 1-3, 4-6, 7-10 and 10-12, the chairman George Tomlins reports. Numbered eggs found by the searchers will win other Easter goodies as prizes. 2 Mill Levy Proposed For Sewer Line Work FROM RUNNERJbP TO CHAMPION.

Russell Harper said a woman ran into a drive- in restaurant and told him she saw two bodies lying about a foot from the pavement in the 600 block of Everhard Rd. At the same time he was notifying police headquarters by radio, another passerby was reporting the mishap to police. Police Chief Robert D. Fulk said officers gathered evidence found at the scene and are making an intensive investigation. George Douglas, Timothy's father, said "I hope they catch whoever did this. I don't know who could do something like this even to an animal. "My neighbor saw a Ford with a banged up hood going past our house very slowly over and over again Sunday. He went out to get the license number and the person drove away at a high rate of speed," Douglas said. Mrs. Reed,- said the boys had been at Colonial Lanes, where Richard works part time checking identifications. "They decided to come home. Richard had left his car at home. He likes to walk and often walked home from work. He said he has no idea what happened. He heard nothing or saw nothing. He just remembers walking and then waking up in the hospital, "Mrs. Reed said. The youths were neighbors and juniors at Timken Vocational High School in Canton. Police theorized the pair may have had to walk onto the pavement to get around a mailbox near the point of impact. Mrs. Reed said a little knoll may have blocked a motorists view. A lifelong resident of Canton, Timothy was a member of St.' Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church. Besides his parents he leaves a brother, Samuel G. at home; grandmother, Mrs. Nettie Baarackman of Canton; and grandfather, Wilbert Farns- worth of New Matamoras, O.

Wehl proposed to City Council Monday night that a twomilL levy for trunk sanitary sewer lines be placed on the ballot. No action was taken. Wehl also asked the city administration to set up a permanent street improvement program which would insure paving perhaps a street each year and assess residents for the cost. He added that curbs and gutters and sidewalks should be included. "I suggest we start the sidewalk program on Bachtel St.SE from Foster Ave. SE to the east city limits," Wehl said. John Walsh, director of law, concurred with*Wehl and stated, "I've been suggesting a permanent street program for five years. But I was told Council started working on the McKinley Ave. SE project and the property owners got so mad they're still working on it." "If we put this through," Wehl said, "most of uswon'tbe elected next time, but at least we'll have some street improvements. The maintenance on our streets is getting more expensive all the time. And youngsters are endangered ev- erytime they must walk along roads without sidewalks." He also said he is completely against the planned fluoridation of city water when the new water treatment plant is finished. "I want pure water. Fluoride is a medicine. If I want medicine I'll buy my own." Wehl ™—«™^^——^——■—«• purchased now at City Hall between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 9 a.m. to noon and 2 to 4 p.m. Saturdays.

In a split 4-2 vote, with one member absent,, council approved first reading to restrict City Hall meeting rooms to governmental meetings only. Dale Gerber, Ward 2andJ.C. Nelson, Ward 3, voted against the action. Gerber said he felt that because the citizens paid for the new City Hall they should be permitted to meet there.
