As Vice President Nixon has said', we are in a race for survival in which our lives, ,our fortunes and our liberties are at stake. We are living in the super-charged atmosphere of a relentless cold war which we did not seek but could not avoid. There is no room for careless blunders or hastily conceived decisions and retreats from firmness which, together or separately, might open the atomic arsenals of I960, wipe out millions ,oi helpiess people and reduce great areas of the earth's surface to radio-active rubble. Fortunately for all Americans as wen as free peoples everywhere, the Republican leadership not only recognizes the hard realities of security, but faces them with the same caan, experienced judgement and dedication to an avowee peaceful purpose whicn for eignt years have held in check the evil giobal aims of communism. We cannot afford to gamble with our future, risk the loss of everything we hold dear by entrusting the awesome task of leadership to a Johnme-come-lately on the international scene. We refer, of course, to the Junio. Senator from Massachusetts, who in his youthful naivete would apoiogize to Nikita Khrushchev, the arch villian in the world drama, for daring to take such measures as oui wise leadership knew were essential to national security. Rather, we need a man who can and has faced up to the Red dictator, stood up for the United States and proudly and courageously made it clear to him that whatever tht Russians can do we can do better. We have such a man in Richard M. Nixon who, facing the communist threat unafraid, and secure in the knowledge we are second best to none, speaks for all the people when he says: "...let the victory we seek be not victory over any other nation or any other .people. .Let it be the victory of freedom over tyranny, of plentyrr6ver hunger, of lie'aith over disease,' in every country of the world." iN.eiineuy is tne great unknown in the critical field of foreign policy, untested and untried. This should be uppermost in the minds of the voters in November. Tney have seen the fulfillment of the promise of U.S. strength for peace in the Eisenhower administrations. Tney may rest assured that this goal will rest in safe hands if the responsibility is given to another great American leader whose qualities of leadership have met the test of time. The Judicial Ballot Under the law of Ohio, which idealistically seeks to remove the judiciary from partisan pontics, on .November 8, tne names of candidates seeking judgeships will be presented to you as a voter on a separate piece of paper aesig- ( nated as tne nonpartisan judicial baliot. i v Unless this year is a marked exception, tens of thousands of voters in Ohio will not troupe to mark this banot, many because tney feel they do not know enough about the' candidates. Unless we make a special effort tms county will have its proportionate snare ox unmarked judicial ballots. Community tragedy can lie in this default, because government at no level can be wholly whoxesome unless we have the highest integrity and the greatest capacity m our courts. Tne likelihood of this default increases as we ascend the judicial ladder. Circumstances of local interest and personal association permit the voter some, familiarity with the qualifications of local judicial candidates, and county groups and local organizations disseminate miormation on quaihi- cations. To a lesser extent, this is also true of our courts of appeals, but only by conscious personal effort can tne voter prepare, himself to vote intelligently for a judge of the Supreme Court of Ohio. Tlie qualifications of aspirants to the high court are available to any one who takes his civic responsibility seriously and we earnestly urge all such persons to make a conscious effort to find out who the candidates are and wnat their qualifications may be. It is of the' hignest importance that you choose the best men for the "Supreme Court. Even in these days the courts are still our most important lawmaking agency. Study 'World's Challenge9 Has America lost her vitality? Are we entering an era of moral and physical decay? These are questions being, seriously discussed this election year by thinking people all over the country. Stuffed with better'living, we seem to be prey to a national uneasiness which some think comes from prosperity itself. The possibility of atomic war is constantly on our minds. We have thundered into an alien world of scientific achievement which' most of us do not understand. It is natural that there would be reactions to the stress of living at this time, and encouraging that we Seem to be searching ourselves for answers...:'...; One group of citizens, AMVETS', veterans of World War 1 and Korea," have made this self-examination ' the theme of their national convention at Miami Beach. They are sitting down with a forum of leadjng thinkers in various fields to discuss the. problems'of our "National Purpose" and to try to find some answers. The fact that AMVETS—whose members are a cross section of American-life--^are grappling, with these difficult problems, is in itself one of the most heax'tenjng indications that w.e'Have not lost;our vitality,, "". *• •"'•' The public dis.ussion, sponsored by the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce, will begin at 7:30 p.m. •On hand to answer the questions will be the members of the Charter Commission.
