When anti-war demonstrators broke into draft offices and public buildings, poured blood ori files, burned and destroyed property at Berkeley, Columbia, Kent, Santa Barbara, cut fire hoses and assaulted firemen and po- licmen (all criminal acts); when William Sloan Coffin, Ramsey Clark, Jane Fonda, the Kerrigan Brothers et al joumed to Hanoi (All illegal, War-prolonging acts); Did the politicians call for Senate investigations into the crime, and also indictments for arson, inciting to riot, property destruction, assault, etc? "Did they dig into whence came the funds to fly. support, and provide legal counsel for those who committed these acts. Did thev investigate the bugging of the telephones of Otto Otepka and others? They did not." A meeting with James AlcCord, (the news correspondent at which time he briefly recounted, among other things, his brief stay in jail (he is out, as of this writing, on bail). He faces possible imprisonment of up to sixty years. In jail, he met a fellow prisoner who had been convicted for murder and sentenced to prison for only fifteen years. If the American people share any one feeling in common, it is that all should be given fair and equal treatment. It is painfully apparent that those who are accused of having any connection (however remote) with the bugging and breakin of June 17, 1972, are not being given the same treatment as those who have committed much more vicious, hateful and violent crimes against this Country. That is why, in our opinion, people are angry: and that isr1 Why w'e further believe 'fhatTasUbe'. hearings drag on qnd on, public reaction is going to swing more ard more against the members of the committee who are displaying such zealous diligence in going after the witnesses appearing before them. Confrontation In The Courts Whether a constitutional confrontation over release of White House tapes and documents pertinent to the Watergate inquiries was necessary has now become an academic question. The die has been cast. The President's refusal to grant effective access to materials needed to get at truth left Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox and the Senate committee no other course but to take legal action. Thus the confrontation is at hand. The process of resolving it promises to be a traumatic experience for the nation. There is some reason to feel that the ordeal may be of fairly short duration. The Supreme Court, which is likely to have the affair placed on its doorstep with minimal delay ,will doubtless feel a sense of urgency about settling the dispute with some dispatch. The high court can act quickly on occasion, as was shown when the issue of publication of the Pentagon Papers came before it. Other considerations militate against haste, however. This is very far from being an ordinary piece of litigation ;it involves a fundamental question as to the limits of the doctrine of separation of powers. The court will want to proceed with great care in its deliberations on an issue of such magnitude. Months might be consumed in this process. Worse yet, the Supreme Court might conclude that, partly because the judiciary is #ne of the branches of government hedged about by the separation of powers doctrine, the questions at issue lie beyond the scope of the courts. Such an outcome, in effect requiring Congress and the President to work out some accommodation on their own, would bring a confusing and disruptive impasse. One must hope that the court will not duck the issue. The national interest would be best served by resolving this unfortunate constitutional confrontation as speedily as possible. Watergate Word Game One bonus cf the Watergate hearings is that they give ordinary folk a chance to feel a trifle superior at the expense of Prominent Persons. The reference is to slovenly speech habit's and an excessive fondness for certain otiose phrases. The good senators always seem to say "Wite Ouse," never White House." Our chief executive is customarily described as "thepresdntUni'Sta's." That hardy perennial, "at this point in time," has been much noted. Jchn Ehrlichman made "in point of fact" almost as notorious. Trivia—but as long as we must wallow in Watergate, we might as well1 get a little fun out of it. Council Moves If % to Halt Sewer :x% Flooding in SE Complaints from Woodside Ave. SE area residents about the long-standing problem of flash rains causing back-up of sanitary sewer lines into their homes brought two actions by Council Monday night. The first, to give immediate if temporary relief,- calls for the installation of check valves in the main sewer lines coming from the north into the area. The second, a more long- range solution to the inadequacy of the Eastside trunk line, was council's request for the administration to check with federal and state authorities on the possibility of North Canton building its own sewage disposal plant. Councilman-at-large Glenn Wehl backed both measures commenting that "$27 million in federal funds, your tax dollars and mine, are being pumped into the Canton Sewage Disposal Plant and we have to pay a premium for service to this area. We should check on getting our own plant or get this (rate scale) into the courts." Mr. Wehl's attempt to get passed by Council for the check valve installation failed for lack of majority approval, but it is to be onCouncil's agenda Aug. 27. Russell Smith of 928 Wood- side SE asked if the city had any immediate plans to solve the eight-year-old problem that Mr. Smith said is becoming more chronic, with three invasions of raw sewage already in 1973. "What's the price of sanitation when it's our personal health that is our problem?" Robert J; Killian of 920 Wood- side SE asked Council. "Either you get to work and do something or we'll go to the state," Mrs. Killian warned, saying .''no woman wante-tbiie- cleaning.up messes like that time after time." City Administrator Clifford Gehrum reported crews are busy checking on causes for infiltration of storm sewer water into the sanitary lines from the NE quadrant of the city. "We know there is something wrong in the trunkline, we're working on it, not passing the buck," he said. Mr. Gehrum cited an instance where the normal flow in a sanitray line was measured at 500,000 gallonsbutaf- ter a storm jumped to over two million gallons. He attributed this to illegal hookins of downspouts and footer drains into the sanitary sewer lines. Two resolutions to proceed with curbs and gutters in the 7th St.,. Hillcrest, Viking, Fair Oaks, Royer and WillamanSts. in the NW section and the Bachtel, McKinley and Wood- side area in the SE received second reading after lengthy discussions. Noble Riggs of 473 Hillcrest NW charged that the petitions did not represent the required 60 per cent of the property owners and sought a guarantee ithat streets will be black- topped by the city without charge as the agreement states.

Johnson and City Administrator Clifford Gehrum on Friday, Aug. 10. The report followed constant questions by citizens concerning the progress in construction and related projects necessary to begin operation of the city's new water treatment system. Mr. Gehrum BOUND FOR BRAZIL. Saturday, Aug. 11, was departure date for Karen Chassin, Hoover junior, who will be spending a year in Barbacena, some 150 miles from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She's shown with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Chassin, her 14-year-old sister, Jennie, and 10-year-old brother, Matt, at the Chassin home 1206 Salway Ave. SW just before leaving for her year abroad as a Rotary Exchange St- dent. Karen will be missing her reigning year as Jaycee Fair Queen, a title she won at the fair last June. A second local miss, Lisa Carlisle, daughter of the Dean Carlisles of 435 Pierce Ave. NW, leaves at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, from Akron- Canton Airport for a year in Lower Hutt, a suburb of Wellington, New Zealand. Lisa is a June graduate of Hoover.

The other $5,000 was granted to the City Ambulance fund of North Canton contingent on the City finding the additional funding necessary to meet the $25,000 goal necessary to initiate the Emergency Program. Both Jim Mills, head ofthe new program for the City, and Mayor Dave Johnson congratulated the Jaycees on their contribution to this most needy cause. In special reports to the chapter, President Tom Haynes informed the members that the bid for a local Jaycee State convention was lost to Lima. The Jaycees will travel to Toledo in October to again bid on a state convention tobe held in the Belden Village area in October, 1974, if the bid is successful. This effort is again being made in conjunction with the Canton Jaycees. The program for the evening was arranged by Dr. Jim Fanno, who is Chairman of "Speak-up", a concept in Jay cees where members are encouraged to learn to speak with confidence and effectiveness to any group. Guest speaker was Mark Fergeson, a senior at Perry High School, who last year was first in the District and second in the State in the Dramatic speech contest. He did a cutting from "Requiem for„a Heavyweight" portraying three different characters in Rod Sterling's TV play. It was announced at the meeting that George Tomlins and Mike Lewis will co-chair the Haunted House Project this October.

Pool Reopens After Flooding Damages Pump The municipal swimming pool was reopened to the public last Wednesday, Aug. 8, after being idle for 12 days to repair the main pump motor damaged by flooding during heavy rains July 27. Pool director Jon Rice reported the state and county health department checked the pool's bacteria level and pronounced it "safe" and the water was filtered for four days prior to reopening for use. The pool will remain open each day from 1 until 9 p.m. through Labor Day, Sept. 3. The pump or equipment room has been flooded several times since it was opened in May, 1972, a $300,000 gift to the city ofthe Hoover Foundation. Plans are underway to install a signal at City Hall that will alert city crews in the event of a power failure that would stop pumping operations. reported the physical plant, building and equipment on Freedom St. are completed and a series of tests have been run, with only minor adjustments encountered and corrected. "The million-gallon clear- well at the plant was drained and recharged with plant processed water to its full capacity and on July 10 the lines inside the plant proper were flushed for necessary construction clean-up. Thus the plant proper is now ready for operation," Mr. Gehrum said. -Related Projects- One main water transmission line remains to be installed. Work was to have started Monday on this line. It will run from the plant, across Portage St. and down the west side of Whipple Ave. to Glenwood. Work will begin on the north end and traffic will be maintained as it progresses south. That project has aNov.10 completion date, at which time the raw water line, now in, will be tied to the Dressier and Glenwood wells completing the transmission line serving the new plant, he reported. "This construction program will not prevent the plant from going into production of treated water," Mr. Gehrum emphasized. -Wells Modified- North Canton presently operates its water system from deep wells, the report continued. There-are five wells in use, Easton on the east side, Glenwood on the south, Dressier on the south and west side, and the two new wells at the plant site. "All of the wells require^ modification. We have already completed Freedom No.2 which is on line with the new plant. Freedom No. 3 is pre sently being renovated and will be ready to go on stream when needed later this year," the report stated. Schedule for renovation of the Glenwood well should follow in September and the Dressier well in October so the tie-ins can be completed in early November. The staggered modification is necessary to maintain fire protection and the normal use demand of customers, Mr. Gehrum explained. "Since the present system of well production has been serving North Canton for many years, it follows that the pipelines for distribution have been installed at various times since perhaps 1909. Therefore certain aging within these lines would hold or carry varying amounts of sediments of iron, manganese or other mineral particles. -Start Flow Aug. 20- "It will be necessary to enter the system gradually in a manner that will minimize disturbances in the system. Basically we will begin Aug. 20 and in about two weeks we will be introducing about 25 per cent treated water into the system," Mr. Gehrum explained. "The first week in September we will advance the percentage slowly so that by the end of that month we will be running at 50 per cent treated to untreated in the system. The next 3-4 weeks we shouldbe at 75'per cent'rreate'd andbylate" November or early December we will reach 100 per cent treated water. "We must point out again that this schedule of. gradual introduction of treated water to the system must be in- certain aging within these lines would hold or carry (Continued to Page 10) McKinley Kennel Club Summer Match Sunday McKinley Kennel Club's summer AKC All Breed Sanctioned Match and Obedience Trial is set for this Sunday, Aug. 19, at Price Park.
