Edgar L. Jones, and The Rev. Warner H. Siebert. have announced. The emphasis, which is built around, the theme "Giving Makes a Differ- . ence" was begun Sunday, Nov. 2 with a sermon on stewardship. The title, "But I Say To You. . .". The God's Share Committee under the leadership of John Huffman has invited and trained 43 teams of laymen and women in an ef fort to confront every member of the Church and Sunday School with their responsibility to be a faithful Christian Steward by the generous sharing of their Time, Talent and Treasure as their "God's Share" for His work through the Church. Sunday, Nov. 9 has been set as God's Share Day, a day when every member is expected to attend worship, and follow that experience by meeting with their God's Share Counselor in the fellowship hall'following both the 8:30 a.m. and 10:40a.m. services to make their "Declaration of Intention* for 1976. Visits will be made in the homes of all those who fail to respond on that day. Mrs. Brooks fcowell, Mr. Darryl Kinion, and Clair Studer each delivered a brief talk during past worship services on why members should support this program and their church. Dale Graef and Don Lundstrom have assisted in the training sessions. God's Share Day is an important day in the life of Zion Church as members undergird the 1976 program of their church. It all started in a small room of the first Community Building. It was Friday afternoon, January27,1928 -The North Canton Library was founded. Miss Vera Mathie was the first Librarian and the only employee. Operating with a budget of $1,100 and an inventory of 1,000 books the Library set about to do its thing. Within fifteen months it had outgrown the original quarters. The Library then moved to a house south of the first "C3."andsatisfied the literary thirst of that community at that location for 25 years. The North CantonWom- 's Club helped to keep the •elves full by sponsoring ,ook drives. In 1932 they also sponsored the first art exhibit. Miss Ida Cooper and her assistant Miss Rena Pottorf followed Miss Mathie. Mrs. Elizabeth Bricker was Librarian for many years and now Mrs. Carolyn Wilcox is at the helm. In 1953, a new building was erected then added to in 1969 - hence today's well staffed, well equipped and well used Library. The Greentown Branch was opened in 1963. Since the Bicentennial concentrates much of its force on the past it is only natural that the Library has many historic titles that are very important, not only to the avid reader but also to students, book reviewers and program chairmen. Lists are available; here we list only a few. Just to wet your appetite: Strange Wives - Barker, Shirley F.; The Last of the Mohicans - Cooper, James F.; April Morning - Fast, Howard M.; WildHorizon- Mason, Can Wyck; The Light in the Forest - Richter, Conrad; Arundel-Rob erts, Kenneth; Oliver Wis- well-Roberts, Kenneth; The Presidents Lady- Stone, Irving; Those Who Love - Stone, Irving; Dawn's Early Light - Thane, Elswyth.

Both For Office Building ange i C With only three of their five members present, tbe North Canton Planning Commission met Monday, Nov. 3 in Council Chambers for discussion of two zone change requests; one by Jack Berrey who requested rezoning of a portion of the property on the north-west corner of S. Main St. and Everhard Rd. and the otherby the Masonic Temple who requested a zone change of property which fronts on Orchard St. between 7th and 9th Streets NE. Absent from the meeting were Les Scales and chairman William Plasket. Mr. Berrey requested the zone change at 1477 S. Main St. from R50 Single Family Residential to Office Building. He stated to City Planners that he owns two properties at 1469 and at 1477 S. Main St. and are adjacent to each other.Mr. Berrey is in real estate and presently has an office at 1000 McKinley Ave., Canton, but ls requesting part ol his property on S. Main be rezoned so he may operate his real estate business from North Canton. He told planners he will live in the house at 1469 S. Main. "I will provide ample off-street parking for 12 cars which I feelwillbe sufficient for the business I have," stated Berrey. Berrey pointed out that the properties next to him, Addessi at 1459 S. Main St. and Ted Davis at 93 Everhard SW are both zoned residential, but advertise business in the phone book yellow pages (Addessi for antique sales and Davis for interior decorating.) Ed Juenemann moved to grant the request with Dennis Grady seconding the motion. "Well, I'm not all that ready to decide on this," stated Jack Martin, vice chairman of the Commission, who was serving as chairman in the absence of Plasket. "Im not sold yet that we don't need to retain residential property on Main St. I don't feel like making a decision until I have studied this further," continued Martin. "The zone change request by Mr. Berrey could be granted because of the growth of commercial and multi-family zoning to the south of him," said Grady. "I am personally familiar with his property on McKinley in Canton and I feel his property will enhance the area." "Maybe because this area is changing we should take a better look at this," explained Martin. "I object to spot zoning which this wouldbe." "I don't believe this is spot zoning," added Humanistic Education Workshop Is Friday In North Canton On November 7, North Canton City Schools will conduct a workshop on "Humanistic Education." Leaders of the forenoon and afternoon sessions will be Edward Ford of Youngstown and Roland Kamm of Cambridge.

Grady. "I welcome any new business of this type which I believe will enhance the area, especially since Mr. Berrey is a local resident." Mr. Juenemann also stated that he does not feel this is spot zoning. A vote was taken, ending 2-1 with Mr. Martin voting against recommending the zone change. The Masonic Temple Association came to planners seeking a zone change of property which fronts on Orchard St. between 7th and 9th Streets NE from R50SingIe Family to Office Building.

The past month has seen an almost complete depletion of the state emergency purpose fund; it has been a very bleak picture of Ohio's finances painted by the Director of Management and Budget; and will reportedly see a review of the budget by the House Finance and Appropriations Committee once the Legislature reconvenes. The primary purpose for expending emergency purpose funds was to provide supplemental moneys to agencies which found the need to lay off personnel in order to meet existing revenues. As a result of this back door financing of state agencies and the serious cash flow problem the state could very well end up with an 80 million dollar deficit by the end ofthe biennium. At the time the budget was passed 1 stated that it was indeed out of balanceitt regard to projected revenues and priorities. Hopefully if the majority leadership of the General Assembly does, in fact, decide to reconsider on some of these budgetary decisions it will be for the betterment of Ohio's finances and not for political purposes. What we need is solutions to match state spending with declining revenues not just a forum for political dramatics. ONE SENATOR'S OPINION In analysis and thinking about the crisis in New York City it does not take one too long to investigate the history ofthe fiscal situation and come to the conclusion that one of the biggest problems we have is knowing our unencumbered balances; that is, money on hand, on a day to day, month to month and year to year basis. It is time we take a look and get back to down to earth accounting methods and responsible fiscal policies. It seems to me that the state and large city governments havethe (Continued to Page 2) PATRIOTIC FLOATO.
