A supplemental agreement was made with Kem- pthorn Automotive Inc., for five years,; July i to June30,1981.It consists of 11,760 sq. ft. of land thet the'hanger now occupies, the price is 10*? per sq. ft. an increase of 2-?, $107 per month, or $1,288 per year.

P. inherited approximately 24 company and church related blood banks that were established with the individual hospitals. Since then, the C.B.P. has added over 104 groups and over 1,000 individual and family plans. According to Dick Kling- enhagen, Community Blood Program Coordinator, the bloodneeds of Aultman and Timken Mercy Hospitals per month is approximately 800 pints. Two years ago this monthly figure was 200 less. "Our goal of a 100 per cent volunteer blood supply has not yet been realized," said Mr. Klingenhagen, '-tout we intend to reach it by the end of 1976." There are six reasons for establishing the Community Blood Program. These are: to initiate a blood program whereby the recruiting, drawing, testing, storing and supplying of blood are efficfiyely co ordinated by a centralized local effort; to initiate a blood program that offers adequate coverage for beneficiaries in the service area of participating hospitals; to support a blood program that meets or exceeds the standards of the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB); t o minimize the outdating of blood and the purchase of blood from commercial or progresslonal sources ; to foster various types of volunteer donor "Plans" that will contribute to meeting the blood needs of theCommunity at large and to assure that the blood program does not discriminate on the basis of race, nationality, religion, political affiliation or financial status. . . ^ There are twd blood assurance plans offered by theC3.P. (family or individual'-plan-and group plan) and a special account of blood credits, established for area patients suffering from blood and b o n e marrow diseases called the "High Volume Donor Club". These three represent the recruiting tools used to motivate individuals ln Central Stark County to voluntarily donate blood. The family of individual plan assures the donor and his or her immediate fam- Turn Clocks Ahead This Saturday Nite Residents are reminded that clocks should be turned ahead one hour before retiring Saturday evening, Apr. 24.We willbe switching to daylight savings time ' earlySunday morning, Apr. 25. ily a complete replacement for a period of one year by the donation of one pint of blood. If the donor be a single person, he or she may name at least three other persons asbenediclaries. The group plan assures to all members of a particular group total blood replacement provided the group membership is of a certain size and said members donate blood each year representing a percentage of the total membership. The "High Volume Donor Club" was formed to help those individuals suffering from blood and bone marrow diseases such as Hemophilia, Leukemia, Aplastic Anemia, disseminated can - cer and others who . need large amounts of blood (Continued to page 2) NC Education Association Reduces Base Pay Demand At the Thursday, Apr. 15 public negotiation session of the North Canton Education Association (NCEA) and the North Canton Board of Education, NCEA reduced its base salary demand from $9,060 to $8,900.

When our plat was recorded in February 1831, Greentown was already a bustling community having been founded in February 1816. Peter Dickerhoof and Henry Wise were the leaders that started the village. The official name for the infant town was Green but as years passed, to distinguish it from Green Township, the German speaking citizens were calling it Greentown. James McNabb byjlt the first house. Bradley Goodwill and Hiram Myers were ;early storekeepers. In 18- ■27 Goodwill was appointed Greentown's first postmaster. An early mill was run by the Xrichbaums and Samuel (Simon) Harsh had a tavern. Cast iron stoves and kettles were the first hint of manufacturing established in 1836. HenryShanafelt and Christian Kryder brought pig iron up the Canal to Massillon and on to Greentown by wagon. By 1860 the thriving busihess was moved to Canton. 1636 was also the beginning of the business ups and downs of Ephriam Ball who brought the manufacturing of farming equipment to the sleepy town of Greentown in spite ;of the sheriff and many creditors. In 1850BalI,who was joined in 1847byCorn- 'elius Aultman, moved what had become a prosperous farm Implement manufacturing company toCanton. In the early years cc*l was mined in Greentown, celery was a main product and miles of sewer pipe and fire brick were fired in the large ovens at Greentown- Aultman plant. TheNatco Company was the last to close there facility in 1963. Mina Miller was Thomas Edison's second wife. Her family home is the attractive well preserved red brick home on the southwest side of Cleveland Avenue near the square. It ls said that Edison used the outbuilding to the rear of the house as a mini-lab and tested h i s phonograph there. To the casual reader, Greentown may seem historically a stopping off place for young businesses which .move on to fame and fortune. That may be so- but beneath the rural exterior and samll town facade a heart beats in Greentown as strong as any other inStark County, Ohio or the United States. The' heritage of Greentown its not in the history of its manufacturing but in its town-folks, the farm residents, doctors, teachers, small shop. keepers, churches and schools. This is all evidenced in the Annual, gathering of the Alumni Association (ofwhich there have not been any added since 1957), in the ..strength and dedication of the Athletic Association, .and the newly founded enthusiasm of the Greentown Jaycees., Greentown is America in action,,caring about its past and striving to cultivate a future. Nextweekwe will again look at Greentown through the eyes of those who have made the heart beat and those who keep lt throbbing with caring for each other. Towards the end of t h e session, teachers were accused of failing to negotiate and North Canton Board of Education's chief negotiator Richard E. D avi s,- was accused of distributing "propaganda". Davis distributed an 11- [4tenvjnmdown;of agenda it- FUND RAISING DRIVE. Mayor Charles B. Strausser (right) supports the Knights of Columbus "Days for the Retarded", April 22, 23 and 24 by signing and presenting a Proclamation concerning the fund raising drive to local Drive Chairman Bud Rose (left) and Grand Knight of the North- Canton Bishop McFadden Council John Hotchko (center). The Knights of Columbus are sponsoring the fund raising drive to raise $250,000 in fifty hours. Persons with canisters will be in front of supermarkets, banks, airports, on street corners and wherever people gather. In the Proclamation, the Mayor urges all citizens to support the Knights of Columbus in their efforts during this "How do you measure up?" campaign. In addition to local members of the K of C the boy scouts, girl scouts, St. Thomas students, and citizens of the Stark County Retarded School will-also be helping in raising funds from noon on April 22 until 6 p.m. April 24. The money raised will be donated to all agencies in the state of Ohio that serve our mentally retarded citizens. ems ani stated t|i«t|Roe.t Of the con-, cessions have been made by the board. Grievance procedures, stipends and longevity pay are matters unresolved. Davis stated that these items have been discussed and the board has g 1 v e n NCEA its position. Davis also added that all the negotiations have been one way. Herman McHan, NCEA chief negotiator disagreed with Davis on this and said that the board has the final say whether NCEA agrees to anything or not. McHan did point out that NCEA did get the board to sign on one thing which was the major medical. "By signing this, you saved the board $1,000", saldMcHan. McHan complained that Davis hadnotpresented the board proposals during the first two negotiating sessions, and Davis stated that time was wasted because NCEA didn't tell the board what they wanted to negotiate about. The NCEA chief negotiator asked Davis to explain the board's refusal to submit contract grievance matters to binding arbitration. Davis explained that if it is an item of the contract the people have rights under the contract but that the board is not willing to hand that to an arbitrator. Kenneth Cole, NCEA negotiator from Ohio Education Association said costs would be less.to the board under arbitration. ended the discussion by stating that the board will not agree to binding arbitration. At the session, NCEA presented to the board negotiators an amended salary index, which raises the mathematical formulas by which education and years of experience are computed as raises to the base salary. Major changes are in the 9 to 13-year experience levels. NCEA negotiators reported the new index raises from 331.03 to 340.99 the accumulative index for all salaries based on the proposed $8,900 andwouldcost the .board some $107,200 additional during the period of the one-year contract. Davis indicated the b o a r d still is insisting on a two- year contract and some glimmer of reconciliation was seen in Mr. Cole's statement. Cole said that NCEA is not saying they're totally rejecting the second year, but not at 3.48. The percentage mentioned refers .to the wage increase offered for 1977-78 by the school board. The next public negotla- tingsessionwill be Thursday, Apr. 22 beginning at 4 p.m. in Hoover Hi gh School library. Sen.Johnson Reports From The Capital PASS THRU OF GAS COSTS NKED The Senate passed legislation this week to prevent gas companies from charging residential and other nonindustrial gas consumers from being charged part of the cost of obtaining special purchases of gas to alleviate industrial, gas shortages. I supported this emergency measure which will immediately stop the current "roll in" to consumers bills of about $61 million worth of emergency , short -term gas purchases made last winter by -four utility companies in Ohio. While the debate centered first on immediate relief to consumers it thenmovedto the question to long term effects. Ohio is the fifth largest consumer of energy in the United States. This, along with Ohio's economic base being set on industrial success, left a question in my mind with respect to the situation this sets up in light of energy shortages in the next few years. Tbatquestion is what effect will be seen when industry must proceed to other sources of energybe- cause of gas shortages. -Will we not see moreprice increases for fuel oil and coal for residential and non-commercial consumers when industry begins competing for those alternative sources? What are we to do then? It is surely something to consider as we try to confront our energy problem. LOBBYIST REFORM PASSED BY SENATE I supported legislation this week which reforms Ohio's existing lobbyist laws. The purpose of Senate Bill 313 is to require the public disclosure of financial transactions with legislators and amounts spent to influence specific legislation. After all the debate the question in each legislator's vote remained, "Does the public have the right to know how much is spent to influence specific legislators and legislation? " I voted yes. This bill, among other provisions, will require lobbyists to register and file statements of money spent to influence specific legislation with the Secretary of State, who then files monthly reports with the (Continued to page 2) NC Chamber Recognition Dinner Is Next Wednesday Dr. Robert G.
