Hoover Sideliners Kick Off Annual Fund Raising Drive The North Canton Hoover Sideliners are kicking off their annual drive to solicit support from the community for their 1977 Football Program. The Football Program is the main source of funds used to support the many programs undertaken by the Sideliners for the benefit of the male and female athletes at Hoover High School. These funds are derived from the ads placedby the businesses in the area, from the people ln the community who are listed as Viking Patrons and from the "sale of the programs at the football games. The Sideliners are presently involvedin completing a new building on the visitor's side of the Stadium- which will house a locker room, toilet facilities and a concession stand for the Band Parents. Due to unexpected expenses involved in the construction of this building, the Sideliners are starting hheir 19th year about $10,000 in the red. Add to this the increase cost of printing and paper for the program - and there was no choice but to raise the price of the 77 Football Program to 50? and reluctantly ask the Patrons to increase the amount of their donation. The Sideliners do not plan to cut back on any of the 77-79 programs that they sponsor for the benefit of the male and female athletes at Hoover HighSchool. Instead, they hope that with the continued support of the communityandbywork- ing harder on their fund raising projects - they can pay off their indebtedness and continue theirv.prog- rams for the youth of the community. Another of the fund raising projects they will be counting on is the sale of the coupon books, Entertainment 77, which they will be sponsoring in this area for the second year. These books feature "Buy One Dinner or Admission and get one Free (or substantial discount)". These coupons cover a wide variety of restauranct, supper clubs, carry outs, theatres, special event, sports activities and travel accomodations. The Sideliners meet the first Monday of the monthe at the North Canton K of C Hall and extend an invitation to any male or female over 18, who is interested in working for the benefit of the athletes and athletic School.

Airport Will Drill In Spite Of Warnings Akron - Canton Regional Airport has expressed determination to drill at least one hole in a search for natural gas on the airport grounds despite warnings from East Ohio Gas Co. Since the Airport authority first announced plans to prospect for gas during its February meeting, East Ohio has contended that most airport property is within storage protection area. An official from East Otdo termed a proposed drilling location outside the designated area which is very close to the active storage pool operating line and undesirable. This was reported in a letter to Aviation Director, John A. Doyal, Jr. James Frink, manager of the production and storage division of East Ohio, said a February proposal by the airport to continue to lease acreage within the utility's protective zone to East Ohio is unacceptable and that another proposal from East Ohio would be ready by October 1. Earlier this year, East Ohio reportedly offered a $1 -an-acre lease for a total annual payment of $1,000. Frink also offered to appear at the authority's Aug. 18 meeting to make a slide presentation. The authority resolved to accept Frick's offer to appear, but it also voted to ask that an East Ohio representative from Cleveland be present at the August meeting and to demand that the proposal for leasing be ready Aug. 18. Doyal called the Oct.. 1 offer an attempt by East Ohio to buy time, and attorney Tom Haney from Akron said a Cleveland East Ohio representative should be present at the August meeting so as to know the principals if the matter goes to court. East Ohio not only reportedly had been reluctant to agree to any leasing figure unless a potential for finding oil is proved, but it also has threatened a lawsuit if the authority allows Park- Carrton Red Cross Accepting Cash For Ffood Victims The Pennsylvania floods have left 50,000 persons homeless. All of them need food, clothing, housing and medical aid. The Red Cross is supplying these emergency needs to flood victims in various shelters and centers.

Ohio Gas Co. to drill within its PubUc Utilities of Ohio- designated protection area. It has been determined 'there is room for 25 wells on the 1,000 acres and an average productive well could yield $40,000 a year. In other action the authority approved a lump sum contract for $13,000 with Dansizen - Martin Associates for architectural work for the airport's baggage area building addition. Doug Shaffer Qualifies For Natl Tourney Doug Shaffer won both events for boys 13-14 in the Regional 6 (Midwest) Junior Olumpics Diving Championship, Sunday, thus qualifying him for his second national diving tournament this month. Shaffer scored 412.0 points on the one-meter board and 445.15 on the three meter board to top runner-up Tim Swartz of Dayton by about 80 points in each event. He will compete in the National AAU Junior Olympic Multi-Sports Championships Aug. 12-14 at the University of Nebraska al Lincoln. Shaffer qualified 'for the National Age-Group Diving Championship in a meet two week ago. He also won at both heights in the qualification. Alley* Leads To More Confusion NW Residents Are Upset Over Interpretation of Meeting Topic What appeared on the North Canton Planning Commission's Monday nighty Aug. 1 agenda as "recomimendation of request by Beatrice G. Weber for a zone change for the premises known as Lots Nos. 1683-1690 inclusive" (located on North Main Street between Woodrow and 9th Street) ended up being a request by Council President Dennis Grady for "ctarifica-ion" of al6-foot alley which runs immediately behind this property. Mrs. Weber's original request to have the land zoned completely General Business A was modifiedby City Planners in June to be zoned Office Business for. the front portion, leaving the back portion residential. Because of "confusion", Mrs. Weber's request has appeared before Planners three times, has had two Public Hearings and finally appeared on Council's July 25th agenda when it was tabled by four of the seven councilmen. Council President Grady, who was present at the Planning Commission meeting Monday, stated that the alley, which is now not an existing alley, comes within inches of an existing structure. He said he does not want a situation where the alley would be reopened. Grady also told Planners he wants to see the alley vacated and allow them (the Planners) toa- mend any recommendations. Planning Commission Chairman William Plasket stated that the subject of the alley was brought up numberous times at pre vious PlanningCommission meetings and the fact that the alley is now shrubs, grass and trees. Plasket stated the Planners never made any recommendation in regards to the alley. James Hartong, a member of the PlanningCommission, stated he feels the zoning request and the alley have no relationship at this time and doesn't feel he can make a decision on it at this time. Chairman Plasket said the vacation of the alley would be good to serve as an additional buffer to the residential area. Another member of the Planning Commission, Ed Juenemann, said he was "well aware" of the 16- foot alley. He stated that the vacation of an alley is normally brought about by adjoining property owners or the City Engineer. He added that he sees no connection between the vacation of the alley and the zone change request. Councilman at Large Les Raye, also presented at the planners meeting Monday, read from the planning Commission minutes of June 6, 1977, the Mr. Pla- sket said "I think we might want to further recommend to Council in the future not to develop that alley." The notes from the June 6 meeting also show that Forrest Moore, Superintendent of Permits and Inspections for North Canton and secretary for the Planning Commission stated, "What the commission is recommending here tonight 9june 6) does not include that alley." Also on June 6, Jean Waltenbaugh of 125 W. 9th St. asked Planners if they could include in their recommendation the closing of the alley between 9th and Woodrow Streets. At that time Mr. Plasket said, "That was one of the questions that we had in our minds. If we vacate the alley, any person using it now would have the problem of trying to get an easment from the other person to get out. We decided against it leaving it the way it is now, nobody had to worry about getting an easement. Mr. Moore also pointed out on June 6 that "to handle this properly, on the vacating of an alley, the proper way to handle it is to submit an application to the City Council. They dohave the right to do this. The Commission does not have this right. If it is the desire to vacate this alley, then you can submit as such to the City Council and they have the right to act on it at that time." Grady asked Planners for their stand on the alley, whether or not they favor (Continued to Page 2) Brazilian Miss To Be Exchange Student Here PIANO RiEDC-TAL.

Regula Reports The American farmer and his problems occupied the attention of Congress much of the time this past week. As the week drew to a close the House of Rep- resentives passed a four- year farm bill which, among other things, would provide price supports for wheat, . corn, peanuts, cotton,dairy products, rice, wool, mo- hari, and other commodities. It also would substantially change the food- stamp program. Under provisions of the bill, food- stamp recipients no longer would be required to buy some of their stamps. While I favor responsible programs for each of these items, 1 voted against the bill because I do not think it fiscally wise to keep on spending at the high rate provided in this legislation when we are attempting to check inflation. The price tag on the bill is $10.5 billion. This huge sum is more than the targets set by the House Budget Committee in the first budget resolution. The bill represents an increase of $1.8 billion over the amount fixed in the first resolution approved by Congress May 17. An increase of this size defeats budget planning and control. It opens the door to more inflation and makes balancing the budget seem more visionary than ever. The Budget Committee should have taken the lead in fiscal discipline and opposed the increase. The House bill exceeds the $9.6 billion version that President Carter requested but is approximately $1.5 billion lower than theSenate farm bill. The President has threatened a veto if the figure moves closer to the Senate total during conference, which is scheduled this week. Changes in the food stamp legislation could eliminate as many as 1.3 million recipients from the program while reducing benefits for 4 million others. But by cutting out the requirement that recipients pay something for the stamps, an estimated 2 million people would be added to the program. Thus more people (Continued to Page 2) Stark Co.
