It was noted during the meeting that even flf .tthe afltempft to giain voter approval for the levy is unsuccessful, this will be the Hast opport'unity Citizens of the North Canton City School District have to provide additional funds for their schools beforethe calendar year 1980. The North Canton Board of Education is again sponsoring the North Canton Adult Evening Program during tlie fall 1978. Joseph A. Shurilla is Director' of the Adult Education Program. Necessary, though educationally detrimental, curtailments considered in the event that the effort topass the levy is unsuccessfulin- clude, but are not limited to the following reductions; teachers, certain instructional areas; tutors; transportation services; sports, other extra - curricular activities, all grade levels, all activities; and maintenance personnel and services. Residents are also reminded that since September 26 will be the date of the last vote on this issue in 1978, it will be the last opportunity to provide additional funds for the calendar year 1979. Members of the School Board adopted a statement of policy relative to school closings at their August 22 meeting. The following is rationale for statement of policy regulating school closings. Points considered included, but are not limited to, the following: Provision for safety of pupils is essential. This responsibility rests upon the parents and gaurdians, together with the Board of Education and its employed personnel. The Board of Education is responsible for establishing the school year specifying the number of days considered essential for providing adequate learning experiences for children and youth at a time in our history when the need for effective instruction is unprecedented. Reasonable concern for the integrity of the school year must be demonstrated. Interruption of instruction should be a- voided when feasible for obvious reasons* Since many employees are not required toperform contracted services when classes are cancelled, even though they are paid for such services, and since other employees, whose primary assignments do not depend on the presence of pupils, necessarily must report for work when possible, there is evidence of a demoralizing effect upon some of those persons who are required to work when classes are cancelled. In fact, after the novelty of cancelled school activities "wears off," morale often wanes among conscientious students and staff members who really want to get on with the business of education. (Schools have been known to resume classes when weather conditions were worse than thosecon- ditions prevailing earlier when classes were cancelled.) Varying conditions of streets and roads throughout the district could result in buses being safely driven over some -- perhaps almost all - but not others. Depriving all of the district's several thousand pupils of educational opportunities cannot be justified simply because a few cannot safely travel to their res pec ti ve schools on a gi v- en day. Work can be "made up" by those havingtomiss classes as a result of inclement weather with no more difficulty than is experienced by those whose (Continued on page 2) Registration will be open from 8 a.m. to 12 noon daily at Hoover High North Campus Office September 18 - 25.

Mr. Stahler said he had no water meter readings by the City from March 9, 1977 through May 5, 1978. Mr. Stahler was given $55.20 credit by the City, but isseekingapproximate- ly $110 credit.

'Vial Of Life' Offers Vital Information In Emergency Emergency squad persons rush to the scene of an emergency. Inside the house they find a woman unconscious on the floor. One of the squad persons who was summoned toy .a friend and neighbor, tends to the woman while dhe other dashes to the "kitchen. He opens fee refrigerator and'pulls out' a vial which had been placet! iat a conspicious spot. In side the vial he finds a message: "I am a diabetic. I must have insulin shots three times a day." The form also contains the woman's normal pulse rate, blood pressure and the name of her physician. That message could save her life. It would give para- professionals an immediate medical history of the woman, her illness and type of treatment she normally receives. While this situationis hypothetical, the "Vial of Life" is not. Just such a program will be gettingun- derway in North Canton oa Friday, Sept. 1. This "Vial of Life Program" is being sponsored by theNorthCantonChapter No. 1400 of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). The North Canton Emergency squad has agreed to join the program and it is hoped that other city and county groups will participate. Robert Dively, Chairman of the local chapter program, said that North Canton's porgram is geared to make medical information easily accessible to squad persons who respond to emergency calls for help. Any person from child to adult can participate in the program. They will be given a freevialwithaforni on which they will be told to list their medical history, treatment and any other vital information that could be helpful in any emergency. The form is placed in the vial and placed in a conspicious spot in the refrigerator. Quite frequently emergency squad persons go into a situation and do not know the history of a person's illness. The cooperation of the emergency squad is essential to the success ofthe program. Vials can be secured at the North Canton Community Building YMCA and at City Hall. People in the Greentown area can get theirs at Buff's QuickShop. Vials will be available beginning September 1. t"-p LIFESAVING PROGRAM BEGINS. The "Vial of Life program will officially begin in the North Canton area I'his Friday, Sept. 1. The purpose of this program is to encourage residents to tape a plastic vial containing medical history and emergenry information under the top right hand shelf inside their refrigerators for the immediate use of paramedic pei-sonnel in the event of an emergency. Pictured here showing where the plastic vial should be placed are (1. to r.) Robert Dively, vice president of the North Canton Chapter No. 1400 of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and chairman of the local chapter program; Robert Flounders, Norfh Canton EMS Chief; David Johnson, candidate for the Ohio District 70 representative and supporter of the "Vial of Life" program and North Canton Mayor Dennis Grady. The plastic vials and medical data forms will be available for distribution at the North Canton Community Building YMCA, at Mayor Grady's office in North Canton City Hall and at Buff's Quick Shop in Greentown. North Canton Emergency Medical Service Chief Flounders and Plain Township Fire Ohief Clarence Snyder collaborated in selecting the information listed in the emergency vial and noted it would provide valuable information to rescue vehicle personnel in emergency calls, particularly when the victim is unconscious or unable to talk. Mr. Dively has been working on the "Vial of Life" idea for several months and was instrumental in obtaining the donation of the plastic vials for use in this program. The North Canton AARP groups will distribute the vials lb their membership.
