Those who would isolate us from the world urge us to stand upon that individualism, hoping thus to keep us from concerted action. Those on the other hand who believe in a collective society, whether it be under the rule of the state or of a dictator—not that I have ever been able to see any distinction—condemn our individualism as archaic. We as individualists will listen to neither critic. We have regard for the person and belief in the sanctity of the indi- <&> vidual. We respect and defend the state because it represents the composite convictions of its individual citizens. We believe in the responsibilities as well as the rights of the indir vidual. We also believe in the responsibility of the state both toward its citizens and toward those states who likewise join iii the fellowship of nations. It isn't always easy to be an individualist. There are many times when it would be much simpler to accept the mental rule of state or dictator, to be told what to think, to have our minds ruled for us. We who have the heritage of free men must, however, do our own thinking day tn and day out, in war as well as in peace. Just now when attempts are being made from every side to push us this way and that, when the full forces of clever- propaganda "are unleashed upon us we must be clear and individual thinkers. The enemy propaganda has one aim in view, to divide and disrupt us—to turn us from a nation of strong individuals working side by side without regard for birthplace, work or religious faith, to a collection of small, impotent- groups, bickering and warring among ourselves, pushing for,personal advantages, and allowing prejudice and bias to make us oblivious to the enemy whose aggressive tactics, are/always, aimed first at the minds of those whom it wisHes to conquer. -* - Let us therefore, in this houii-bf world travail, stand ;firm y^gu^ndividual^teft-^ working togetiS.1 as one" for the 'good of* all. We know that if the rights of one are threatened/the rights of all are in danger, for no great "couHt*cy has. ever been "defeated frSm without that was not first defeated from within. Let us who wish to be free men, tojttiaintain our individualism, stand firm on what we believe -r-t holding only that all men are created equal and avoiding all W generalizations of our neighbor by his class, his creed or his color. Let us at. all times preserve that unity of purpose which has made us a nation of individuals and which has given us freedom to live and to pass on a greater measure of freedom to each succeeding generation. Government - By the People No reasonable person will object to government controls during the emergency: The American public has accepted the dictates of Washington as they have been handed down, willingly and cooperatively. But nowhere in America are the words "directive," "orders," and "controls" popular. War words possibly. Peacetime words in this country—never! Under the present tightening manpower controls a man is told what he may earn, whether or not he can have a raise, what he can eat, how much he can charge for what he sells, what ..materials he can have, whether he is to go into the military service or hot, whether he is necessary or unnecessary, whether his business is essential or nonessential. As a result of many Washington controls, millions of peoole in this country are now in a quandary over their rapidly diminishing rights. Born and reared in freedom, America t, resents .the possibility that a controlled economy may persist, & for some indications have pointed to a continuation of such a condition after- the emergency has passed. Let us rieveirforget for a moment that this is a democracy, that the Government of the United States,' the state governments,-and-the local governmental bodies are servants of the people and not their masters. The American people will submit to controls during an emergency but they, will never "goose step" to any tune nor will they ever "heil" any dictator. When war threatens and national unity is paramount in defense against a common enemy, the American people will go over the top, all-out, willingly, enthusiastically. But with victory behind them they will return to their homes, their farms, and their jobs as free men with the knowledge that their government is by the people and for the people. VOL. 20—No. 32 NORTH CANTON, STARK COUNTY./OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 2, 1943 $2.00 PER XEAS Greentown Honors War Dead at Service Sunday Memorial Day services in Greentown were held in combination with the morning worship service at the Methodist church at the regular church hour, 10:30. Membeis of the Howard D. Miller American Legion post, American Legion auxiliary and Sons of the Legion attended the service in a group and sat together.

Stalin Welcomes Davies at Kremlin Blackout Test Here Fairly Successful Several Lights Turned on Before "All Clear" Mai- Village Record The official report «hi the blackout in North Canton last Wednesday night brings high praise to the citizens of the village who have cooperated in every way with officials to make the defense measure a complete success and thus help to protect their homes. The chief, and only, violators of the blackout during the last test were one or two business houses which for the second time failed to wait for the all clear signal before they turned on their lights. The long blast of the whistle after the complete blackout signal does not mean "all clear" but only that the planes are no longer in the immediate vicinity. The all clear signal is given only by turning on the street lights from the master switch. Most citizens in the village turned out their lights immediately when the first signal sounded and thus made the work of the petroling wardens much easier. Defense volunteer workers who are giving their time to make the homes of the district safe in the event of a real air raid have expressed the hope that by the time the next test is held all lights will be completely blacked out to make the village a hundred percent ready for an emergency.

A short, pithy sentence, perhaps not the best choice M words or construction, but expressing a world of meaning. It is the answer of every American worker, every American industrialist to the challenge World War II brought to this nation. "I can so" was • on the lips of every employee, every employer when President Roosevelt announced the almost-im- "possible-of-attainment total, of weapons-and materials of war that American had to produce in order to defeat^the Japa- nazis. Hitter made his third major mistake of the war when » he failed to hear that American war cry "I can so." He reck- tt^ oned on an America gone soft, an America totally unpre- '!r' pared, but he failed to take into account that when you say to an American, "It can't be done,"-no matter- how tough the assignment may appear to be, the reply comes thundering back, "I can so." V Now this.is not just a bombastic display of .over-confiV dence—!t;is not. mere lip service. The Aftierican worker rolls Up his.slfeeyes. and goes out and does it. Hitler knows, by now Members of Zion Lutheran church and' Sunday school will hold their annual picnic Saturday afternoon and evening at Hoover camp. The grounds will be opened at 3 o'clock for the children who wish to go early to start the program of sports and games. The various games at the camp will be available for use and there will also be other sports planned for both adults'and children with Mary Givler in charge. Mrs. Emma Bell, assisted by Anna Exemkemper and Mrs. Frank Arter will be in- charge of the tables and any persons who do not have transportation are asked to contact Ed Gross. _ The evening picnic meal will be served at 6 o'clock. In the event of rain the picnic will be held indoors in the buildings at the camp. q North Gantonites Mset at Church in India Equip Bikes! Riders Warned Halfway around the world, on Mother's Day, May 9, two former North Canton residents caught a glimpse of each other in a church service. And, although they did not have a chance to speak to each other at that time, it is believed that they have met since then. Carl McKinney, in a letter to his mother, Mrs. John McKinney, received this week, told of the meeting and his surprise at seeing Frances Seederly in the same gath-1 ering. He expressed the hope that they would have a chance to meet again and said he had already met a Red Cross nurse at the same station who knew Miss Seederly. Sgt. McKinney assured* his parents that he was in good health but very anxious to get back to the States. o Four in Draft Gall Check-Up to Start Next Monday on Safety Equipment A second warning has been given to the parents of children with bicycles and to adult riders that their bikes must be completely equipped with a rear reflector or light, nead light and warning bell or other signal if they are to be used after dark. Several near accidents in the past few weeks in which motorists failed to see the bicycle riders until it was nearly too late have br'ought this warning from Mayor Guy Price and Marshal Russell Smith. According to a village ordinance, these pieces of equipment must be in place on the bicycle for the safety of the rider, any pedestrians and motorists. Staiting next Monday, June 7, a check-up will be started oh bicycles to make certain that they are properly equipped. Those which do not have lights or a bell will be taken from the child until they are taken care of. Full cooperation has been asked of the parents to help make the highway safe for dboth their child and the motorists.
