g^^^^^^^^^^^^ffg^fp^?fn 5?;f-»S5v*'' -^ •■ WEAK SPOT / •<f 4F 4 Graduation Day -i&M VOL. 17—No. 31 NORTH CANTON, STARK COUNTY, OHIO, WEDNESDAY/ Mam*e»f 1940 $1.50 PER YEAR Luncheon Ends Woman Club Season 100 Members and Guests Gather at Congress Lake Country Club; Incoming Officers Introduced One of the great days of the journey through life here in Ohio is that time when the youth graduates from a school or college. The day marks one of those deep lines of division which separate the eras and periods of experience. If the graduation is the final one, completing the student's education, it is like a great bridge over which he crosses into an unknown future. Yesterday he was a mere student, struggling to learn the wisdom of the ages, and acquire some skill in handling the tools through which we build something worth while. The thoughts of thousands of wise men, philosophers, poets, scientists, have been poured into his mind. He has been given access to the libraries of the world, to find what the human race has learned-in its upward climb. Tomorrow he becomes one of the workers of the world, or at least he tries to become one. A mighty array of new problems arise to torment him. He not merely has to sell his services to the world, but he has to make the services so pleasing to the world that he will receive bread and meat and house rent in return. What is the most fitting form of program for a day so epochal in the life of youth? Some schools like to get some great man in the world of thought to come and talk to the graduates and their friends there assembled. It is a fine time to present new ideas that shall make a lasting impression on minds whose patterns are not yet stereotyped into permanent form. To the public the most interesting kind of graduation is perhaps the program; in which leading members of the graduating class are given a chance to utter, their own thoughts. The world thereby gets an idea of what they have learned through these years*o£ study. It is a pleasure to see what wise and mature thoughts are presented on these occasions. The Month of Weddings The June wedding has become a kind, of tradition, as a picture of beauty, sentiment, and the happiness of united lovers. Nature pours out a wealth of floral triumphs in June. Countless brides take advantage of this colorful time to turn their weddings into pictures of romance and artistic Weddings are beautiful apart from the loveliness pro- x diiced by decorations, costumes, and the fateful words of the x marriage service. A wedding touches very closely the chords of human emotion. We see two people starting out on a great adventure, the creation of a new family. The world is an uncertain place, with difficulties and dangers on every hand, but the wedding couples face the mists of the hidden future with a resolute heart. They are inspired by the strongest emotion that moves human life, the passion of love. They make solemn pledges to bear the burdens of life unitedly. The courage thus displayed is a reminder to us all that however severe the trials of life, they can be borne if families meet them with a resolute heart and combined effort. There can be hope and confidence in the darkest day, and the rocky roads of life can be surmounted. So the blessings of friends and neighbors and the whole community go out ~to all who unite their fortunes in a June wedding, or at any time in the year. There are days when there is hot and dusty work to be done, with no one playing any wedding march and no line of friends saying best wishes. Every wedded-couple should look back to the wedding day, and try to carry out every one of those solemn promises. Then when the sunset of life comes, they will have made a good journey, and have been rewarded with life's best gifts. Helping The Home Town Anything that helps the home town helps all of us. When we spend more money on schools, and thereby improve their ability to educate the children, we get a benefit through brighter and more capable young people. -So it is in every field of comumnity action. Whatever helps the homje town, enables the home town to do more for its people. The folks therefore who sit back and devote themselves solely to their own personal interests, are a kind of dead weight on the progress of the town. Of course if they do faithful work on their job and keep nice looking home places, these things help a great deal. But there are many enterprises that need the support of the people generally for success. Unless these enterprises are supported, home town progress lags behind. Marking the "occasion of the official closing of the club year until next fall, 100 members and guests of the North Canton Woman's club attended the annual spring luncheon held Monday afternoon at Congress Lake Country club.

Band Festival Will be Held June 14-15 Nine Organizations Will Take Part in Program Sponsored by North Canton School Band Association P-T A Sponsors Band Carnival Students Have Perfect Records Belgium Yields It was sad news when the King of the Belgians told his army to surrender to the conquering Nazis-The Belgians have fought hard in many wars. Their soil has run red with blood in historic battles. Their little country has been called the cockpit of Europe. It was on that hard fought ground that the battle of Waterloo was fought in 18X5, and there Napoleon Bonaparte lost his job as world boss, and spent the rest, of his life in exile. Some living dictators could profit by studying his fate. Now little Belgium, which fought with such deathless courage in the World war, and whose armies have fought like tigers in the present one, is told to quit and go home. It is a sad disappointment.

CAN AVODD DELAY Patrons of the Park theatre who enjoy taking friends with them on "pal night" have found themselves unnecessarilv delayed through a little oversight on their part. When they step up to the ticket office to purchase tickets, they are forgetting to mention the fact they have a "pal" with them and quite naturally only receive the one ticket. This results in confusion when they are forced to return to the ticket booth to ask for the additional ticket. Being forced to return to the booth not only results in delay for the theater-goers but also serves to confuse the ticket girl and this could easily be avoided with a little foresight. Middlebranch Event to be Held Saturday, June 8 The Middlebranch PTA under the leadership of the newly elected president Mrs. W. A. Brechbill, and in cooperation with the various organizations in' the community of Middlebranch are working on plans for the annual band carnival which will be held Saturday evening, June 8, on the school grounds and in the school building.

W. Taylor, William M. Kohr is superintendent of the school. MOTHERS TO°PICNIC The coming of June usually is thought of in terms of carnivals, band concerts and the like and North Canton is no exception for next week-end Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15, the annual band festival will be held on the high school grounds. Sponsored by the North Canton School Band association, an organ- zation which was founded for the purpose of furthering band interests, this year's event promises to be the biggest and best yet held.

C.—The 10,000 ton cruiser Quimcy, carrying two airplanes, is rushing toward the east coast of South America on what is briefly announced by the Navy to be a "good-will" cruise, but on what is reliably reported to be ttlhe special mission of aiding several Latin-American countries, if necessary, in meeting Nazi fifth column activities. The Quincy's first stop will be Rio de Janeiro,' but it is believed that the cruiser may proceed on to Montevideo, where Uruguayan officials are frankly alarmed over organized Nazi activities.
