Most of the students enjoyed their visit to early New Berlin and have contributed some interesting historical articles that will appear from time to time in this column. Philip Powell,sonofMr. and Mrs. James Powell of 805. Fair Oaks S.W. will soon be startinghis Freshman year at the University of Cincinnati in Engineering. Philip visited early North Canton soon after it changed from New Berlin when the young Hoover Company held their first sales conventions here. The following is his account: "Cities of great size and population, like Chicago or Miami are normally the first places which come to mind when a site is being chosen by some body for a convention. However, in 1921, North Canton be- came a convention town \vhen it hosted theFirstln- ternational Hoover Convention for eleven days in the summer of that year. "Only men were permitted to attend the convention, and they came from all over the United States and from several. European countries as well. The proceedings took place at the Hoover Camp, which is now the Hoover Park and is located on Easton Street. The delegates slept in small tents which surrounded the campgrounds, and although this does not sound like the convention arrangements usually made today, the men enjoyed it very much. "The convention of 1926 was a milestone in that it was the first time that more than 36 men received awards for their sales achievements. In fact, 121 men received awards atthe convention that year and this clearly indicated the tremendous growth of the company during the preceding year. "Delegates to the convention began arriving by train oh Sunday, July 4, 1926, on Tuesday the proceedings officially began with a grand parade which featured floats from the different sales regions across the country and the members of the Executive Department, including W. H. "Boss"Hoover. The entire town filled the sidewalks for this event arid were by no means disappointed. It was the finest parade iNorth Canton had ever seen. Following the parade, the four hundred delegates jammed the Convention Hall at the camp to hear the opening speech by "Boss" Hoover. ( "The leisure activities which were included in the convention's agenda in cluded baseball andvolley- faall games every night at the camp. A Britain versus United States tennis match was also played, and the British were victorious. The delegates also enjoyed playing pranks on each other, one of which was the. imprisonment of delegates in the camp "hoosegow." The"hoose- gow" was a small cage which served .as a one or two man jail, and housed "criminals" who had committed such "crimes" as refusing to sing a solo or for rooting against one's fellow countrymen in a baseball game. AH of these leisure time activities were a great factor in contributing to the success and popularity of the conventions. "The Hoover Company still holds conventions today, but they are spread out a great deal throughout the country and are held more on a regional and departmental basis. This is due to the Hoover Company's tremendous growth and ex- , pansion since the days of the early conventions in North Canton. However, none of the conventions today can compare with the family-like atmosphere and closeness which characterized the conventions held in North Canton in the 1920's." In future issues we will be having up-dates from the Bicentennial Committees working on oiir '76 celebrations, national historic date and more of the students work. Coach Hertler is currently receiving a $900 stipend as athletic director. The new stipend, which has been increased by 34 per cent, is applicable for three years of experience. Hertler is also receiving $1,406 as football coach of the Hoover Vikings. "I have looked closely at the general duties of the director ofathletics," said board member Barbaras. Herrick. The job description reads that the athletic director is responsible for the "development of programs which meet, the needs and interests of students." "I want a writtenplanby Coach Hertlerby our Oct. 2 meeting describing how he plans to meet the "needs and interests of students," said Herrick. Coaching stipends for six other coaching positions were approved by the board: GeneSollie. girl's varsity basketball, Mrs. Christy Nolan, girl's 9th grade track and volleyball and girl's junior high intra- murals; James Wyckoff, boy's elementary basketball, and Margaret Scott, girl's 7th grade intramur- als. Girl's 7th grade track will be assigned at a later date. Herrick. questioned why Clearmouht has no girl's basketball t'eamV Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Brandau noted, "Any sport that can be initiated for the boys can be initiated for the girls. But the interest must be there." Brandau said he will look into the situation. In other financial matters, the board worked out details of longevity increments for teachers having 20 years of teaching experience. A longevity increment is a $300 formula added yearly to a teacher's salary basedupon experience, recommendation of the superintendent and applicant's qualifications. The board unanimously approved to include up to five years of military experience in determining longevity. At least one teacher is immediately affected by this move. Increments for teachers who have met the" 20- year requirement but are currently teaching on a part-time basis will be determined by multiplying $300 by the fraction of full- time constituted by the current assignment. Longevity applications of 10 teachers were approved by the board. The board reviewed the applications for the first time at the meeting. Herrick requested that in the future, Dr. Brandau allow the board to study the applications prior to the school board meeting. The meeting was delayed shortly when Herrick noticed two of the ten applications were missing. . Teachers reviewed were: Dr. Ruth Weeks, Keylon Clarke, Miss Arieen Dodez, EugeneSoI- lie (Military service counted), M rs. Martha Frye (part-time service), Mrs. June Hershberger, M rs. Doris Crump, Mrs. Ab- deriene Graybill, Daniel Tilton and Charles Lux. Sixteen other personnel, five with military service, are eligible, but have not ^yctf''applied. The board also discussed requests from teachers for additional certificated staff. Additional help does not seem feasible now, Dr. Brandau said, because of the decrease in enrollment from its 5001 peak in 1971 to its present 4660 level. Seven elementary teachers along with a music instructor and diving coach made the request. A drownproof swimming p r o g r a m for elementary levels was passed by the board. The swimming class, for 5th and6th graders only, will teach basic water safety. Pupils will be transported by bus from their Holy Cross Lutheran Church Sponsors Vietnamese Family A fully furnished house complete with foodstuffs and clothing were waiting for the Diec Van Kien family when they arrived in North Canton from Fort Chaffe.Ark., on Labor Day.

In other action, the board: APPROVED phase 3 renovations of elementary school buildings. APPROVED roster of substitute teachers with omission of one name.

The Commission has been under heavy attack for mismanagement of funds and questionable commission procedures. The committee would be a bi-partisan group with equal represen- ation from both parties. OHIO LOTTERY BILL STILL PENDING It is indeed unfortunate that the majority party did not take immediate action on mylotterybill,S.B.374. I feel the citizens of Ohio were short-changed by the inactivity during this session in not calling for immediate action on this most important bill. The Ohio Lottery has been hit with political and financial controversies during the last few weeks and this bill should have been apriority matter. This legislation would provide tlrat the director and other employees ofthe Commission be placed in Civil Service Classifications to make professionalism a grinding force in the total operation of the lottery. The people of Ohio deserve and should demand immediate action on this legislation. In looking back over this week's activities it is obvious the Senate spent a great deal of time handling other matters ancillary to pressing business of the State. I will continue to press for consideration of this most important bill.
