foaagggjaj^ttj^^ The Life of the Future Some people, looking- ahead into the future after the war, "say' that hur system" of living is going* to be tremendously changed, and that we shall hardly know the new world as it will, be then. Some are tn'mking that the country will go over tp" a communistic or socialistic state, that most of us will5 worls for "the government, and people will come down sojnewhere near a common level. No' doubt we .face important changes, but our previous wars have not been followed by any great so.cial revolution. After the last war the people went back to systems of businessVanid government very like those that prevailed before. The country h4d made grand progress under its fundamental principles, arid" they saw no feasdti for tipping- this system upside down. If it shall appear after the present war that Russia under communism is making far greater progress than the United States; and that its people are living- in a comfort far greater than ours, a good many people might turn to communism. Even then it is doubtful if our people would like a system that needs abolition of personal freedom to make it Work. Anyway our people know that the poverty of the Russian people under communism is pitiful, compared with the relative prosperity of the average American family. The principal thing to happen after the wiar will be heavy taxes. Many people will have to live simpler lives, and get along with less personal service. They will gain greater power by this self-reliance. They will have to cut out some luxuries. There is a general promise that unemployment shall be done away with after the war. Business sees the necessity of finding -work for the people. That should largely do away with the .'regular depressions that have cursed the land. We shall perhaps-conclude after the war that without these dreadful -periods of financial disaster, the country is better than ever. - , ' , Women9sS<mget World The first World war opened many doors of opportunity to women, in occupations in which previously the workers were, mostly men.. The present war opens still- more doors. I£ millions of women hold jobs formerly filled" hy men, many of them will probably stay,in similar employments when pea£e comes. "It has been natural for women to feel some dissatisfaction or resentment, wlien in the past they saw themselves" excluded from' many openirig's because of their Sex. They felt perfectly able to do these''things, but the great obstacle of being- a woman kept them out. They were often given lower pay because they were women. There was a. reason for the difference in pay in many cases, since in the case of ^a man an employer felt he would get the benefit of the man's experience for a long time. If it was a woman, she might quit soon because of getting married. With many married women keeping on at money earning, jobs, some, differences in opportunity for the two sexes may disappear.- * - \ - Matiy girls u&fd'tb say they wished"the'y were boys. They saw their boy friends having- .greater freedom and opportunity. They wished they had these chances. They are getting- many of them now. Perhaps the fashion among- women and girls., of wearing trousers -has some .relation to this feeling. They may formerly have resented their limitation to skirts, and now they .seem to like, the-freedom- to choose the convenience which th^y find in. the masculine, garment. Will the present broader opportunity for' women's work keep the men out of jobs after the war? It did not se.em.to do, so following the first World war. When millions of women gffto work, they ear n money which 'they spend, and which puts many men- to work. Anyway if women want to work and earn money, they sliould have fhe chance." '.-;-f VOL. 20—No. 19 NORTH CANTON, STARK COUNTY, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1943 ?2.00 PER YEAR Red Cross Drive Gets Under Way Here Prepare Gardens Now to Prevent Food Shortage Hoover Company Employees May Secure Garden Plots; Every Family Sliould flan to Produce Part o^?"pq4 for Next Winter There may be snow on the ground but this is the time when one should be thinking about garden seeds and garden plots and getting garden tools ready for those long days of hoeing and weeding ahead. For the American family that grows a garden this summer \yill-be the American family that wil) have the best nieals next winter. For the first time in. American history rationing of food is not just something done in other places where jfo.od is scarce—but it is a reahty*that has struck right at the center of the dining ta<ble-. The* best way to remedy that is to go back to the farm days, when the greater part of the food' was raised right at home. Some families" may hesitate to plan a garden because they have no place to grow one. If they are Hoover Co. employees that is easily remedied for the company is again planning larger garden plots than they had last year to accommodate more families. Other folks may be able to rent a small plot of land— and a good garden need not be a large one to provide plenty of food. The Hoover garden plots for individual families will be located at the north and south ends of North Canton. Each plot will measure 50x50 feet or 50x100 feet. This land will be put in a good state of fertilization for growing vegetable**!, and the ground will be ready for planting in May. . These garden plots will- be available at no charge to all Hoover Company employees who may want them. Factory employees may leave their reauests at the Safety Office and office and engineering department employees may leave theirs with the Cooperative department. Preparation and distribution of these gardens is under the direction of the Garden committee composed of Oliver Horton, chairman, Edson Gerber and Louis Walters. families who are planning their own gardens should be certain the ground is in good condition to raise garden produce. Soil from the garden plot will be tested by County Agjf.nt Ormann Keyser's office 'upon request, when a sample of the soil., is submitted. Gardens should be planned to produce the largest amount of vegetables possible. When winter comes around again next year, many families will be thankful for the foresight they used; in growing just as much of their own food as they could in order to provide for their meals and conserve^the,food supply available for"the men overseas. There are a number" of 'garden booklets and djher in*forma.tipfi which gardeners may secure to aid them with what may be their first venture at raising their own food supply.

Three girls, Rita Fire Damages Homes Thursday One Nearly Destroyed as Blaze Starts From Defective Chimney -. -- The North Canton fire department was called to extinguish blazes in two homes last Thursday noon and. evening. The first call came shoitly after noon when the department was called to the home of John Boettler on Lauby road, between Greensburg and Greentown. The fire was believed to have started in the attic from a defective chimney and the whole upper story was completely destroyed and extensive water damage was done on the first floor. Part of the contents of the home were saved. A neighbor was the first one to see the fire and called the fire department. Mr. Boettler was at 'Kome' at the time, it started. "Tlie loss was estimated' at two thousand dollars. The home was not covered1 hv insurance. . Thg, second] fire, call came at 8:55 Thursday evening when flames were :discovered in the home of Charles D. Forrest on Winesap Ave. in Orchard Acres. Mr. Forrest; who had been away, came home to discover flames- shooting from the oil fui- ,nace and. summoned the firemen. The air conditioning system was carrying the smoke and heat throughout the house. Damage, which was caused mostly by smoke, was estimated at $225 for the contents and $1200 for the home. The building was covered by .insurance. _ Q Mrs. Buchanan PTA Sneaker Tuesday Mis., W. V.

Robin Denies Winter, Brings Touch of Spring Norma Kolp Reports First Robin Near Home on Hower Street Snow on the ground and cold wind sweeping around the corners —but it still is close to springtime. Miss Norma Kolp of Hower St. is the one who might well say, "If robins come, can spring be far behind?" for she is the first one to leport seeing this cheery young iellow this spring. He was sitting in a tree and then 11 ew over to perch on a telephone wire, as if he were looking over the situation. That was last Thursday when the days were bright and a little warmer than they have been this week. But with winter making a comeback Mr. Robin and many other birds are going to need the help of.their .human friends to keep from going hungry until sjning really comes. On cold snowy days the birds could well use a few crumbs and seeds of almost any kind until their own natural supply from weeds are. uncovered by the snow. Yes, Mr. Robin has made his fust appearance in North Canton —just a little early for his own Rood, maybe, but he won't suffer if iii? fiiends, glad to see him again, give him a little food to help tide him over the rough days until spring really comes.

Arthur Blough, Nearest Competitor Trails More Than Hundred Thousand Points Behind Far outdistancing his closest rival in the scholarship quiz contest, Robeit Smiley has stepped up nearly 150,000 votes above second place holder, with a total score as of Wednesday noon, 663,325. Arthur Blough, second place holder has a total score of 515,225 and third and fourth places are held by Lee Shinn of Alliance and Robert Matthews of Canton in that position. On WHBC Tuesday evening Smiley added 62,500 points to his score in his fifth radio appearance. There will be two more opportunities for him to compete over the radio for points, while the task of holding him in first place with bond votes rests with his many friends and backers who have given him such complete Support thus far. With twelve weeks of the contest left, Smiley can hold that lead he has gained if every person in the community remembers to cast their votes and continues to buy those bonds to see that he remains there. The race may be very close at the end—but close or not, North Cantonites can see their favorite win if they are backing him with every dollar they can spare.
