It is selection. The boys come from all ranks of life, from farm and factory, from village and city, from the work bench and the class room. There is no question of class, no bar of national origin of the namds they bear, no dispute as to their religion. They are chosen because-they'are physically fit and mentally able to do a hard job—because they are .tough ^nough to take it—and to hand it out. iP It is leadership. With only a small standing army, war found us with too few trained men to lead. But that neyer stopped an American army. The boys in the ranks were culled by theii* officers and if they showed any qualities of leadership, they were pushed into officers training camps there to earn their ratings. Gossip mongers to the contrary, practically none of our officers- were selected because of their "friends." Most have come up from the ranks through sheer ability and hard work. Our leaders know the men they are leading because in the ranks are men they .know, who come from the same kind of homes, were taught in the same kind of schools the same beliefs in democracy. The men obey because they know "why." The officers lead because they know "how." It is devotion. In our ranks are men whose ancestors crossed the seas generations ago—and those who came ih the last immigration; those whose only language seems to be American slang, those who talk with a "Harvard" accent, and those who still have a foreign accent; those who are Americans by birth, and those who are Americans by choice. But there is a common bond which ties them together —- a bond of devotion to a flag which stands for'a devotion to the free land that is America. It is consecration. Alike the men who are American are -consecrated tc «t:jfeiB.'-J.*st f prill-irr- the Declaration of-^dependence, "We hold these truths to.be self-evident, that, all men are created equal;" in the farewell. address of George Washington, "Citizens by birth or choice. * * the independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint councils and joint efforts—of common dangers, sufferings and successes;" in the Gettysburg address of Lincoln, "Government f the pepole, by the people and for the people'" and finally in the message of President Roosevelt, "In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential freedoms." Selection, leadership, devotion and consecration—that is what makes an American army American. That is what will carry an American army on to victory! The Unity of Nations Some people "today are disturbed bf the phrase United Nations, feeling that it is a union in which Ave will do all the giving and none of the getting, that it is an alliance which is definitely entangling and which "will be a handicap once the war is over. They overlook the fact that, the United Nations were not united by the plots of dreamy-eyed internationalists, but by knife thrusts of the Axis realists. It was the .attack upon the nations that united them. And, whether we like it or not, we must remember that no one nation could have survived alone against the powers arrayed against us. We would have put . lip a good fight alone, but it could only have been a struggle dgainst hopeless odds. jflP'. England would have gone down fighting had our isolationists and "party liners" been able to stop the flow of supj- plies from here. Then the Nazis would have had air bases from which to destroy our cities at ease. They would have brought the war home to the Mississippi. It was common danger that brought the United Nations together. If we do not stay together, our fight will have been in vain. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind. The unity we have learned .is an intangible thing, difficult to comprheend in its larger sphere. Enforced cooperation in the common fight has brought us nearer to understanding each other. In our personal relations it is easier of comprehension. Men from different nations, from different backgrounds, of different speech, of different faiths have teamed together, worked together, fought together,, joked together and learned that they all have one thing hi common—the desire to protect their homes and families and their way of life. We must stand together in a common 'cause, but that does not and must not mean accepting theirVway of life as ours. We will not compromise our own ideals, but Ave will work together toward .a common goal—the permanent peace of a w'oi'ld of free men. Belief For Our Prisoners ■%'■*• * Almost 1,000,000 packages ai*e included in shipments going on the Gripsholm, sent for the relief of American pris- f^ers of war now held by the Japanese. Every one of those ckages has been put up with thoughts of the most ardent . 'e, and hope that this hard experience will not last very- long. The heart of the American people also goes out to these victims of war, who are forced to conform to whatever hardships and' limitations their captors, impose upon them. There have been reports that these prisoners were not treated so badly, but one cannot feel sure what those fanatical Japs will do.

Neither one was a local man. Of the other deaths 11' are charged to Canton, 10 to t-ural' and suburban roads, two to North Canton and one each to Massillon and Navarre-. In tha same period last year the county reported 42 fatalities. The big reduction in deaths this year has been on suburban roads — 10 fatalities as against 24 last year. The decline is mainly credited to the drop in non-essential driving. N.

For this reason a full attendance of the membership is urged. Mrs. Eva Cline and Mrs. Marv Oberlin, who attended the convention at Cincinnati, will be present and give their reports. Mrs. Walter Trott has recently been asked to serve on the Red Cress home- nursing committee. She will represent the North Canton PTA. It is- aimed to make' the nursing committee representative of the county organizations which are interested in public health, says Mrs. E. J. March of Canton, chairman of the committee. Now included on the board are Mrs. R. H.

Last year, largely through the effort-:, of Miss Madge Dilts and the Civilian Defense, a home nursing class was conducted in North Canton at the Community building. More than 125 local women took the course. Teachers on the staff included Mrs. R. T. Warburtbn, Mrs.-Charles Schafer, Mrs. Raymond Trier, ancl Mrs. Stanley West. All these women are registered nurses and are listed on the staff (Continued on Page Seven) Accepting the challenge which some of the men of the community were afraid to take up, the North Canton Wom7 an's club late this afternoon consented tp act as the leader for the village and township in the Third War Bond drive, which will be opened in Stark county tomorrow morning at sunrise. This was .at the earnest solicitation of J. Brenner Root, Stark county chairman. . - ■ Very little in the way of plans had^yet been made at the time of going to press. The campaign will be in charge of Mrs. Walter Trott, pi«esident ■ of the-' 'club, Mrs*. A. Clarke Miller; vice president, and Mrs'.;Richaid Ramsey, chairman of the defense and home safety committee. The quota for North Canton and. Plain township is $225,- 000. '..The ladies had already planned z. one-day. drive to be held next Saturday, Sept. 11. This drive will be conducted on the,,'same lines that the Molly Pitcher drive' \ was conducted . some weeks ago. High school girls' have'"consented to again act as salesmen ahd vvill be on the streets all day Saturday. In the Molly Pitcher * canj*paigh the ladies, sold" §1,600 wbrffi of bonds. The sale at that; time wks not a part of any national drive, but was just an "extra" which the ladies, planned to Kelp Uncle Sam in his' hour of need. The campaign which the club it. now starting upon is . different." During- the htext three Weeks North Canton and - Plain township , are asked to buy ,"$225,000 , worth of bonds. This- amount is almost three times the amount asked in the Second Bond drive held'in April. Bonds which are being bought on the payroll deduction plan will not be included in the quota. In addition to all amounts previously pledged Mr. and Mrs. Average American are now being asked to buy at least one $100 bond — and the same is true of Miss America and all the little folk of the American families. Somehow or other old North Canton will make the riffle. We are late in getting a. start because of the lack of leadership. But with the Woman's club now pointing the way, it is time that we fell in line. Let us get out the old check book —dig down into the old sock—sell the butter and eggs—if need be, sell the butter and egg man—but let us put this drive" across. The need is very urgent.

''<Oa, -■'- Ralph Young" of the Citizens Savings and Loan Co. has bean appointed chairman for the North Canton division of the United War and Community Chest, with Mrs. Walter Tiott as assistant. A meeting- will be held by the committee Thursday evening to work out plans for the coming campaign. It is planned at present to have four captains, located in different sections of the town. These captai"s will in turn have workers undfti them. Individual streets will have one or two workers, accordi ig to the length of the street. This campaign is a part of the drive now being staged by the Canton Welfare Federation. Jesse Meson, Canton, is president of the federation. Edgar W. Jones is general chariman of the Community Chest committee. A meeting of 'tlie Welfare Federation was held some weeks ag*o at the Onesta hotel in Canton to determine the size of the fund needed. The board has been provided with informal estimates of the' funds which each of the organizations included in the "chest" will need. Meetings are being held each week by the groups which will make the campaign^ this fall. About 20 local agencies and 15 war agencies are included in the list. North Canton school got settled down to regular school work Tuesday morning with a full corps of teachers ahd an enrollment approximately the same as lest year. The school is definitely classed as a Class B school in athletic circles this year. The curriculum.has had little change from that of last spring. In Response to Nation's Call In response to a call from Draft Board No. 6, the following men have been inducted into the service: Carl Joseph Floom, Paul Edward Schiltz, Robert James Healy, Paul- Thompson, Clarence George Miller, William Anderson Stickel, Jay Stanley Stimmel, Jr., Joseph Edward Peters, Harold Frederick Shaw, Robert Melvin Keith, Dale. Robert Rudersmith, Robert Arthur Smiley, James Donald Schwaliie. Most of these home boys have al- readv reported for training. The others will go in a few weeks. About 45 men summoned by Draft Board No. 8 were given their first physical examination at the Community building Sunday morning. This is what is usually termed the "screening" examination, given to insure that no one crippled or in bad physical health is sent before the board for induction. Dr. A R. Basinger assisted in the examination. o Local Officials File for Election Election board announcements of last week include a list of .officials who have thrown their hats into the ring 'for office in North Canton as follows: Mayor, Guy W.

The senior class is "shy three members because of Louis Acheson and Glenn Wehl leaving. to attend Case school in Cleveland and Conrad Traut enlisting in the army. The school has dropped ta a Class B school this year because there are not enough boys in the four last grades eligible for athletics. The ruling requires 150 boys eligible^ in the four last years, and the North Canton high school'Js just slightly less than that. As usual, the board of education will furnish the text books. These books are turned in at the end "of the school year and repaired before re-issuing the following autumn. In case of serious damage, the pupil is expected to pay for the repairing. About a half dozen members of the senior class are preparing to enter the WHBC quiz contest. The preliminary contest will be held"at McKinley high school Saturday morning. All high school seniors are eligible to enter this preliminary. Included in the seniors who will take the preliminary contest are: Joe Dolvin, Gene Shook, Patty Harrison. Dan Howes, Robert,Mathie, Alice Wise, Richard Firestone, Carol Price and David Gibler.

Fresh Vegetables and Have Root Crops for Coming Winter In an effort to provide for the home front and release more food for the war-torn countries, North Canton people .have turned to Victory gardening with a will. Many people are gardening this year who have never attempted it before. Others are trying out new projects. People who could not take vacations have found recreation in healthy outdoor work that has proven fun and profitable. This week we have talked to a few gardeners. If you have done something that is interesting in your garden, please call us and help us tell the world. *- Mr. and Mrs. Louis Acheson, of a~a~~- 816 Poitage st., are among the rew gardeners this year. Several' bags family have pioven valuable years ago they had a tiny plot, but' ?dditions to the family menu. Sweet had never attempted gardening in , potatoes were also new to them and earnest until this spring. On a lot 50 x 100 feet they have raised an abundance of vegetables and canning material, although their f'tart was lather discouraging because of weather conditions. Broccoli is one of the new things tried this year by the Achesons. Although familiar with the plant as found in the groceries, they had have proven a source of beauty, as well as of supply. Hubbard Squash (?) But the Achesons had not bargained for the supply of rabbits "which came to share their garclen. Just at present they have only leaned to "shoo" them away. An other interesting thing ienced gardeners, but this year put out a larger space than usual. However, weather conditions and various factors made the new venture a disappointment, as they did riot harvest as much as they had anticipated. They, too, experimented this year and found it worth while. A good crop of tomatoes was. a heartening feature of the garden. They found it was also a good thing to have their own lima beans, as they are more tender and have better flavor than when purchased froni the grocery. Carrots are also an oncoming product in the Martin garden. Mrs. Martin plans to dry some of the garden produce. Car- lots, she tells us, are fine when sliced thin and dried on cookie sheets, in an oven with a very slow fire. Corn can be started to dry the same way and she tells us of anew recipe—"parched corn"— made by soaking some dried corn in water until soft and then frying in butter.- Stark County Waits Sunrise to Start War Loan Drive ,-i . wai: erjprp.r.. j-.rj^.: SSh'--"*; >'-i •' •- y*yLr.ALLSsy:«.ys%AA ymy%yy&m never seen it growing, young plants grew, quite large without developing heads, the family grew concerned lest they have all plant with nothing to eat.

The quota of $19,224,000 is the goal for which they strive. It is planned to carry the plea of "Baek the Attack" to every plant, store, office and home in Stark county. The drive will run through Sept. 30. J. Brenner Root, chairman of the Stark War Finance committee, is heading the county drive. There is no county-wide sensational opening planned. This drive 'is being made in deadly earnest and will be without frills and furbelows. Throughout the county the plant committees which introduced the payroll savings plan of _"E" Jjond purchases will visit every factory worker at his job to encourage him or her to buy another bond for victory. Thorough canvass of industries and all business sections of the county already has been mapped ard there are plans for house-to- house canva&s of residential sec- sections. The Third War Loan drive was opened this evening by President Roosevelt with a radio talk at 9:40. His address climaxed a program featuring Hollywood stars in a drama centering around war events. The program constituted a $20,- 000,000 show and was carried on all four major networks. Another phase of the War Loan drive will- start on Saturday night when 10 Hollywood stars begin a Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ellsworth of Taft st. are giving thanks today because of what seems like almost a miraculous escape iri a train wreck involving the train on which they were returning from a vacation trip Tuesday, Aug. 30. The Ellsworths, had enjoyed a vacation in Buffalo and other towns in New York state and had taken the limited train from Buffalo to Cleveland on the return trip. Somewhere out of Wayland the passenger train, traveling at 70 miles per hour, collided with a frieght train, almost demolishing the engine on the freight. Mr. and Mrs. Ellsworth had previously been traveling in a pullman. It was also the hour when they customarily ate in the dining car. This evening, however, they had been impelled' to go to the rear of the train and sit in the next to the last coach. It so happened that this coach was one of the least damaged, while the diner and pullman coaches in the front bore the brunt of the impact. Mr. Ellsworth escaped with almost no injury. Mrs. Ellsworth was thrown beneath a seat, was badly bruised and has an injured limb which seems to be giving more trouble since her return home. However the railway returned them to Buffalo and they were able to come to Cleveland on another train ancl reached North Canton by bus on Sept. 1.
