The good Samaritan gets mugged *■"* 'i^jl#_Kr*iriW<iffl ,*---ms i. -» PbWWAR MP <o -n** World Vol. 50 - No. 35 One Section * 20 Pages NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27 1973 _ 1-0c Ver coPy' $500 per year by Mail' ?7°° 0utside County No End Of Money Crisis On Friday, February 23, 1973, the price of gold soared to $95 an ounce on the London market in a continuing demonstration by foreigners that they have lost faith and confidence in the U.S. dollar. Ita mid-February, at the time the dollar was devalued by 10% and the price of U.S. held gold was increased from $38 to $42.22 an ounce, financial "experts" predicted the world price of gold would not go above $80 per ounce, the previous record high. Events of February 23 proved that the so-called experts were whistling in the dark. It also raises the grave question as to whether the 10% U.S. dollar devaluation will even start to solve the dollar crisis around the world. Normal' trading in gold has been $5 million dollars to $10 million a day on all world markets. On February 23 between $50 million and $100 million worth of gold was purchased in the European markets, and the purchases were made with unwanted American dollars of which some $70 billion are floating around the world. Americans are prohibited by law from buying, selling, or even possessing gold except when the metal is used for manufacturing or medical purposes. Coveted by foreigners everywhere, as presently demonstrated, a succession of Presidents of the United States and subservient Congresses have reviled as .something despicable. Used a medium of exchange it is certain to bring a prison sentence. Americans have been made second class citizens of the world. Uncle Sam once had the world's largest supply of gold .huHion. It ,was Uncle SamV promise; then that he wmild redeem, upon demand, every dollar he sent abroad. For years it was his proud boast that "A DOLLAR IS AS GOOD AS GOLD" and he made good that boast. Remember? But, then on the scene came Uncle Sap with his printing press money. Gold, he said, in effect, was a throwback to the dark ages—a medium of international exchange to be reviled and despised. So we arrive at February 23, 1973, when our printing press money (greenbacks), unwanted by the rest of the world, are being used by millions to buy gold. At the same time greenbacks are being devalued in the United States, further destroying confidence in them. Twice during the past year the United States has been faced with a.n international monetary crisis. It first devalued the dollar by 8.57% and raised the price of the gold it still holds by $3 an ounce to $38. On February 13 the walls started to collapse again. This brought a 10% devaluation of the dollar and a $4 increase in the price of gold to $42 an ounce, less than half the world market price. The United States financial crisis, neither at home nor abroad, has been solved. The end of mismanagement is not yet. \ The Second Freedom "Find a need and fill it" — that's the secret of success in a free enterprise system. But those six words tell us much more than the recipe for wealth. They tell us a lot about the nature of a society in which such advice proves true* a lot we take for granted. What do they tell us? •First, that a free enterprise society is concerned with the fulfillment of human need's. Virtually every modern socio-economic system claims to have this objective. But in some societies, the determination of which "needs" to satisfy is vested in a small group. Under a free enterprise system, each individual has the right to make his own decisions about the needs requiring attention and to act on those decisions, has the right to make his own decisions about the needs requiring attention, and to act on tose decisions. If he is correct, he wfill be rewarded—not for his greed, but for his service to the community. Second, the six words tell us that a member of a free enterprise society is free to criticize the established way of doing things. Finding fault with the status quo in an essential prerequisite to making improvements. We value what works in our economic system, we do not have to pretend that it works because we value it. Third, we can see from the first two conclusions that a free enterprise system brings to the identification and resolution of economic problems the greatest possible amount of diversity of human intelligence. There is literally no broader base conceivable than one which encompasses every individual member of the society. We seldom think of our economic freedom as one * of the fundamental freedoms, yet its loss would probably be noticed more quickly, by more people, than the toss of freedom of speech, worship, petition, or due process, of law. Imagine what life would be like if y.ou could not, choose your job; if you could not strike or quit; if you could not decide for yourself where to live, what goods to buy, what clothes to wear. We exercise political freedom rarely; we exercise economic freedom many times each day.

Meyer, commissioner of the Ohio High School Athletic Association in Columbus. He will assume duties Aug. 1 as the OHSAA office manager, with additional duties as tournament coordinator. As office manager, he will oversee all bookkeeping, expenditures and financial reports and be in charge of membership and sports participation cards for athletes in all sports at the high school level. His tournament duties will include all programs, tickets and trophy awards for state- level events and the setting of dates, sites and the naming of managers for regional events.

Armstrong came to Stark County in 1955 as a McKinley football aide under Wade Watts. He spent three years on the McKinley staff before accepting jobs as a football assistant and faculty, manager at Hoover. -Tourney Manager- Armstrong has managed Northeastern District track meets on the sectional, district and defunct regional levels since 1961. He began directing basketball tournaments in 1965 and assisted Don Hertler, Hoover football coach, with baseball tournaments until 1971. Armstrong beeran his coach- A gift of $25,000 from the Hoover Foundation for the completion of a new indoor firing range for the North Canton Police Department was announced Monday night at Council meeting. A- resolution of appreciation to the Foundation and com- ^••menaatit-m ot thaw*?**, of .Police Chief RobenD. FUlkwere contained in a resolution introduced at Council by Dale Gerber, chairman of council's safety committee. Council authorized advertising for bids for the range equipment and for the ventilating and duct-exhaust system needed for the construction of the indoor weapons training facility in the lower level of city hall. The range, included in original plans for the new city hall but never completed for lack of funds, is expected to cost an estimated $23,000 to equip. - Labor on the project will be .done by men of the department, except for building of a necessary concrete block wall. The safety committee's report showed the facility was badly needed here since the local department members had to use range facilities of other departments in the area. It is planned to open it to outside departments on an invitation basis with the only costs involved to them of tar? ■■gets and ammunition. ' The project is to get underway as soon as bids are completed and awarded. Equipment delivery would take from three to four months, the report showed. 5 NC Students Earn Certificates At Branch Five North Canton residents recently earned a certificate from Kent State University, Stark Campus for completiiig a continuing education course, Bookkeeping for Small Business I.

Lone dissenting vote on the pay hikes approved and on proposed raises for the city administrator and superintendent of permits inspection came from Ward 2 Councilman Dale Gerber. A member of Council's finance committee along with chairman Glenn Wehl and Charles Strausser, Mr. Wehl said he objected to the raise for councilmen because he felt that men who seek those posts do so because of personal committment to the city. On the vote to raise City Administrator Clifford Gehrum's salary to $15,770 from its present $14,770 he commented "When you look at salary, you should also look at the fringe benefits. His salary was raised Feb. 2 and now we're getting into merit raises and I feel this action is premature." He also called "premature" and voted no on the ordinance to raise the salary of Forrest Moore, permits and inspection superintendent, from $10, 125 to $12,000. Both ordinances will come up for second reading at Council's July 9 meeting. It was pointed out that the added responsibility of water billing and collecting hadbeen added to Mr. Moore's department. The raise ordinances also contain hikes for others serving in the finance and law sections of the administration and for employees in the engineering and inspection departments. Four ordinances passed Council signalling go-ahead for a division of Emergency Medical Services to operate in the Department of Safety. Legislation calls for a staff of 30 volunteers to man a city- owned ambulance service, establishes a training fund and set salary for the department. Safety Chairman Dale Gerber complimented Mayor David Johnson and the work of his ambulance committee, headed by Jim Mills, for conceiving the idea and pushing it to completion. -Sewer Study Delayed- A charge of "railroading" by W. V. Hildebrand of 1213 Pleasantview Ave. SE and no votes by Ward 3 Councilman J. C. Nelson and Mr. Gerber stopped emergency action for an engineering study for a sanitary sewer line on Pleasant- view SE which runs south off Schneider Rd. along East Creek. Mr. Hildebrand said "the majority does not want it and cannot afford it" and that five or six of the eight property owners on the dead-end street have adequate septic systems. The proposed study by Shisler, Hunsinger & Associates was recommended by Council's Sanitary Sewer committee to correct a flooding problem that has rendered the septic system unusable at the Roger Viscounte residence, 1122 Pleasantwood, since February. The Viscounte family, which includes five small youngs- (Continued to page 12) St. Paul Adds Deacon to Staff Bishop James W. Malone of the Youngstown Diocese has announced the appointment of Rev.
