In the* past month I have travelled from one end of the continent to the othei'—through big towns, little towns and villages. And, whenever I have spoken, 1 have been asked one question-^!-**; "there a difference between the people in the various sections of this land of ours ? >,- If there is, I have not found it—for the one thing which impressed me most was the unity of purpose on basic questions; The difference lies in the method by which that purpose,is to be achieved. 7 Fundamentally jthe desires are the same—a home; v a family, honest work at fair recompense, friends and leisure time enough" to "enjoy life. But these" desires imply other things as well—a home safe from fear; a family growing together with common ideals and aspirations; honest work at some constructive task, at a recompense that will enable a.'famify to live decently, honestly and with enough margin to- save for the future: friends who are free to be loyal and kind; leisure in.which to learn and in which to take part in community life, to seiwe as a citizen for the betterment of ap. .

A Prayer for the President From the Writings of Dr. Charles Stelzle Thou Great Sovereign of all nations, Thou King of Kings, and Lord of hosts, in these perilous times of war and rumors of war, when all the powers of hate have been loosed to-kill and to destroy, we pray that Thy Spirit may steady the minds and quicken the hearts of those who call themselves by Thy name,, acknowledging Thee as Father. ' We pray especially for the President of these United States, upon whom-has been laid heavy burdens and grave responsibilities, as he speaks for our country and for its people. - Renew his strength as daily his burdens increase. Give him the wisdom and understanding that cometh only from above. Protect him from those whose motives and methods are prompted by* the spirit of selfishness or personal ambition. ; Show him Thy will. Out of the conflict of counsel may T;hy voice come unto him saying: This is the way—walk ye ii*t it. And as Thy will is revealed, increase his faith, so that he may go forth in thJe consciousness of having-fulfilled the task committed to him. ' Arid we pray that -he, with us, shall seek above all things else to honor and glorify Thee, hastening the coming of Thy Kingdom upon earth, and the rule" of the spirit of brother- Hood-in the-lives and the hearts of all peoples of the earth sp-that all nations may dwell together in peace and unity. ijgrien. ,. "*-<..•' When Tomorrow Comes ■' How" are we going to find jobs when this emergency is oVer?" * "'"That's a thought in the minds of millions of men and women who are now working in defense factories all over the country. What will happen to them when America beats its swords into plowshares? Industry is tackling that problem right now, along with the dozens of other problems created by defense production itself. It's laying plans for a speedy change-over to increased civilian manufacturing when this emergency is ended. 77 Even while they're busy turning out more and better armaments, many companies are studying defense inventions, trying to .figure out peace-time applications for them. At the same time they're continuing their customary research on civilian articles. They're developing new products O'f every description—developing them right up to the point Where they can be put on the market. Only, instead of putting them on the market now, they're storing them away on the shelf. When this emergency ends, those new products will-be taken down and put into production immediately. ■ - Facts like these indicate that industry, as usual, is doing its job .today and planning ahead for its job tomorrow. And when, .tomorrow comes, it will have many new articles ' to ipahufac,t*ure,^In manufacturing them it will be able to create new* job-f. aai^'give"tisi all more of the comforts and conven- feP.QfiS^fXWeithat^^^mericans "want.- ' '* -"--''-,-*".£-->" "*X*HC^*^sj;j23?7r$"*',*< -I-*- " - " , *- a- *J -- Lr-.j'Z^ m:, -ir-,', X-*?i. *£ < ."'r'"'r--~-'. \r r .''-*, "What are yon doing to help vour country today in ber hour of need?" That is the question every loyal American might well ask himself as the struggle in the Pacific region grows more violent and tlie war in Europe comes to our shorelines. At the moment was was declared the American Red Cross, plung-ed into unlimited tasks- ahead of it and is now working on "a complete war basis. There - will have to be more materials made for civilians and soldiers. There must.be a huge increase in funds to carry on the work which lies ahead. The national war time, quota for funds has been set at 550,000,000. Canton area quota is $7,000, only a small portion of the entire fund. But it is going to take the cooperation of every person to put across the drive. If each person in the district would contribute one rlav's woik to the drive there would be twice the amount contributed for which the.quota calls. All funds contributed to the Red Cross in this present drive, which is not the regular Red - Cross roll call, will'be used for relief work in war activities.-They will be used for aid throughout the nation in cases of sabotage as well as direct war disaster. Funds may be sent directly to Canton Red Cross headquarters, turned in at. the Red Cross booth on the Canton square or tuinfd in at either the George D. Ha iter branch or, the Citizens' branch in North Canton. Individuals, clubs or any other organizations are asked to do all they can to help in this cause. In addition to funds being accepted at the bank, solicitors may call for them. All persons turning money over to solicitors should be certain that it is going to the Red Cross. Those who collect money will have receipts which they may give io doners to prove they are Red Cross workers. , In addition to funds* there is a great'-need for volunteer worke both*in sewing**projects ■nursing. - ' *: " Ten thousand additional Red Cross nurses are needed at once for work throughout the nation and many more volunteer nurses' aid-es (Continued on Page Seven) • o Dealer Funeral Held Tuesday Auto Accident Victim Buried in Calvary Cemetery Funeral services were-held Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock for Austin Bealer, veteran Hoover employee who died early Saturday morning from, injuries suffered in an automobile accident Friday evening.

There's Got to be a Santa Claus By Channing Pollock When she was a very little giii. m> daughter asked, "What would you do if there weren't any trees ?" "Why," I answered, lightheart- erly. "we'd have to invent some. We couldn't get oh without trees." Thate are quite a lot of things— food, shelter, clothing—we couldn't get on without, and a number of wise men have made my suggestion —we'd have to invent them. What wc must have even more than these are toed for the mind, shelter for the spirit, that which clothes the nakedness of mere animal existence, and gives warmth to human contacts. We celebrate Christmas as a religious festival, but a Christmas was celebrated hundreds of yeais befoie Christ. The ancient peopie of the Angli, in what Is now Britain, had in December a Modranecht, or "mothers' night." There had to be a day set aside for kindness, and generosity, and remembering those we love,, and those less fortunate. '. Before and since Dickens wrote hi4 immortal "A Christmas Carol," thlre have^^g}*! a fe?w- Scrooges who cried of Christmas, "Bah. hum- j shall have" what they want bug!"

I say God bless it!" There is' a certain r.u-ric in a day when even- Strangei a bid us be merry; Nvhen the mall .md telephone and telegraph and all the means of communication commonly devoted to business bring cheery wishes for "Merrv Christmas!'* Shopkeepers' holiday? Bah! Humbug! It isn't a necktie or a dollar bill that we slip into the hand of the janitor or the postman: it's goodwill and thank you for- a year of service. It isn't a toy train that we put under the tree for Junior, or a muffler that we wrap in reoVi sbout the.".crate, of oranges that tissue for- - Aunt Julia, but the knowledge-that* Junior has always wanted agtrainj. and Aunt Julia has needed a-iMqfEler, and ffie" loving desire .ttartSSust this one day, they '.varmth oi their joyful Kisses.

What a lot.of.love and laugh ter and tenderness goes into ths trifling gifts we select" 'for those symbols. We trim our little tre" with bright stars and tinsel, and fer days ahead, in secret; we write messages, and wrap things in giy paper, and hide them from one another until the morning" of mornings.
