It won't hurt yoii, or, any other housekeeper in this town, to learn the kind of thrift that women used to practice!" Twenty-seven- students in the North Canton high school achieved the honor of a place on the semester honor roll for getting ail grades above 90 while 23 received honorable mention for having all grades except one above the 90 mark. Phyllis Groom, member of the, senior class, not only attained high marks in the average course bat received all grades above 90 in six courses, two more than the average student carries. Louis Acheson, sophomore, and Karl Schug, senior, also set a high record by getting grades above 90 in five courses. Other students who also earned honor rating for getting four grades above 90 and an additional class above 85 were David Gibler, Gene Shook and Dolores Kintz of the 10th grade, Virginia Archer and Martha Jean Oberlin in the With a new rich continent and the most efficient industrial system in the world, we've been an extravagant people the past few decades. When things were a little worn, we discarded them and got something new. When it was a nuisance to save things, we simply threw them away. But now, the industry'which has provided for us so lavishly is at work on the machines of war. Now, its main objective is not to raise our standard of living, but to win this war as soon as possible. Sp it's up to us to cooperate by saving . . . conserving.. . making ov<ar ... e^en doing without sometimes. ... / -<-Pw%fea.il do tnis*-viK'u1 good -grace here in America, bteau&e we know that*when victory comes, industry will go right to work for US again. At this moment, I think we all agree that nothing .matters but the war. When other things do matter, we will' again be able to buy all that we need of every good thing. Like the bear in spring, we will soon begin to accumulate fat once more. * Something to Remember What will happen to. America after the war? How will wel meet our rising government debt, change our economy back' to a peace-time basis and continue with our job of making America into the best place to live in the world ? Such problems are causing grave concern in the minds of many Americans at the present time. In a recent speech v Dr. Eobert G. Sproul, president of the University of California, pointed out some facts that should reasure us on these points. After the war, he said, "the land and its resources will still be here; all of the knowledge of mankind from the beginning of history to the present will still be ours . . . Such adjustments as we may have to make in our social and economic scheme -will not destroy our democracy as long as we preserve inviolate its central and fundamental principle of respect for and recognition of the dignity and worth of the individual." fo That concept of the. individual has always been one of the foundations of our freedom. Because of it we are able to work where we please, save our money or spend it, worship as we wish and enjoy all our other liberties. Whatever happens in the months to come, we must remember that and let nothing destroy it. Waste Not. .. Want Not America has always been a wasteful country. Nature has been so lavish and mass production so prolific that we've had an abundance of everything from crude oil to hair pins. Advertising and attractive prices have encouraged our natural tendency to get something new rather than to patch things up or get along with the old. Now things are different. Over night, almost, there are shortages. We begin to see dimly for the first time what it would mean to have to make the old thing "do" much longer than we wish—what it would mean to "get along" with what we have. We begin to realize that discards tucked away in the attic, or piled up in a shed in the back yard, or even thrown on the village dump heap, have value. Freedom to waste is among the luxuries we must sacrifice during the war. We've got to begin saving our resources, turning them to the best account for victory. Though we may have to pull in our belts now, in the long run the habit of saving will do us good. Perhaps after the war, when our factories begin turning out all kinds of civilian goods again, we'll make more careful use of our raw materials and have a greater appreciation of manufactured products than we've ever had before, Norma Harrison, Doris Hanel and Maxine Detimore received honorary mention. Five members of the 8th grade, Thelma Huth, Howard -McCamant, John Owen, Margaret Smith, and Folden Stumpf were on the honor roll and four others, June Bear, Dolores Newell, Marilyn Overholt and James Yonally were on the honorable mention list. Robeit Ebel, Doris Chelpka, Peggy Capley, Joan Boeske, Pauline Hess and Arthur Schneider received all grades above 90 and Jack Kintz, Inez McDowell, Richard Braucher, Ed Bierly, Ellen Sponseller, Don Stover and Dick Studer received honorable mention. Jean King, Robert Mathie and Carol Price of the 10th grade were on the straight honor roll while Patricia, Bernard, Alice Wise, Richard Firestone and Mary Metzger, had one grade under 90. *In the 10th grade honor roll students were Barbara Curry and Elva Keith while Doris Day and Tom Smith made the honorable mention roll. Richard Claypool and Kenneth Schug were the only seniors, other than those carrying extra courses) on the honor roll, while Zane Schlemmer and Paul Schwaliie were on the honorable mention list. All of these students, in addition to five others were also on the honor roll or honorable mention list for the last six weeks period. The other students were Loren Fawver, Ellen Holben, Roberc Smiley and Bud Warstler of the junior class who were on the honorable mention list for the six weeks and Norma Daily, senior, who was on the same list. V Class in fSutrifion io Start Next Tuesday Board of Education Sponsors Evening Study for Adults A class in nutrition for adults wil be started in the home ec department of the high school next Tuesday evening at 7:30. The classes, sponsored hy the Board of Education and conducted by Miss Helen Schleppi, home ec teacher, will be held for 8 or 12 meeting's, lasting for two hours each time. They have been planned to teach women the best ways to get the most nutrition from their food, how to purchase economically, establish good food habits in their families, make more use of local foods, and make better use of money used for food by studying the market and price lists. Other problems brought up by those attending the class will also be discussed. The first meeting will be health movies and registration. A similar- class was held several years ago and proved very successful. o John Deetz Succumbs i Following Heart Attack Howard McGtte Dies in Veterans9 Hospital Funeral Services Thursday at Home and Zion Lutheran Howard C. McCue, 48, of 363 Hower St., died in Veterans' hospital in Dayton Monday afternoon, Feb. 2, 1942 at 2 o'clock. He had been in the hospital since last fall. He was employed by the General Baking Co. and had lived in North Canton for 10 years. He is survived by his widow, Edith McCue, one daughter, Eileen and two sons, Robert and Howard Jr., all of the home; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George E. McCue of Delroy, Ohio; a sister, Nell K. McCue of Canton and two brothers, Ernst L. McCue and James L. McCue, both of Canton. Funeral services will be held from the home Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock and from Zion Lutheran chuich at 2:30.

The Lewis parlors are in charge of the arrangements. o — Hoted Hoosier Poet Speaks at High School Author-Lecturer Tells Would Be Authors to Write of Things at "Home Martin Reese Pogue, widely known lecturer, author and professor h&ld~the entire high school student body in close attention as he entertained and lectured on poetry at the North Canton high school Monday morning. The poet is one of those dynamically interesting men who are always in great demand and his simple homespun philosophy and humor have a quality that is welcomed alike by old and young. He will be fifty-one on Feb. 13—"one day too late to be a Lincoln and too early to be a Valentine," he says. He gave his philosophy of life, Keep Smiling, by quoting from one of his poems: "Keep smiling till victory is won." Mr. Pogue had a word to say to those interested in writing. His advice is: "Write about the thing at your own door step, not about far away places that you have never seen . . . Write about the things common to yourself and everyone." The poet's success along this line could easily be judged by the breathless attention of the students and their hearty, genuine laughter at his humor as they listened to such poems as "The .Cookie Jar," "The Icin' in the Pan," "The Peanut Bucket Lid," and "Fix the Fire." Quite realistically, he pointed out the prospects of earning a living by writing are attained only by about one out of ten thousand. But he believes the benefit derived from creative writing by anyone is amply repaid in the achievement of self-expression and the knowledge of doing something original. The versatile author is also a radio artist and is heard twice weekly over WLW. - He has two spots—as he says—in the program, Truly American, at 6:30 p. m. Saturdays and he has charge of the program, Wayside-Windows, Sundays at 10:15. a, m. — o World Christians Stud? for flebecca Glass Students Laugh at Clock; Classes to Start Later School Children to Keep Regular Schedule, One Hour Later br the Clock, if Plan Meets With Approval Tax Collectors at Hoover Co.

At their weekly meetings the leaders stress work planned to teach them the full extent of their duties in any emergency that may happen. They constantly seek new members to aid in the work and J to impress upon the boys the need -/or'full equipment- and uniforrjGto aid them at-their work. The boys also take intensive training in work such as first aid, and other emergency measures as well as advancement in scout rank to better train them for their work. While they study this work they will continue their regular activities in scout work, learning new; arts and going on camping and] hiking trips. ! In January the local North'Stark district, of which the three North Canton troops are a part was organized for the work. Other troops in the district include Troop 3 at Fairhope, Troops 44 and 48 at Louisville, Troop 42 at Middle- branch, Troop 43 at Uniontown, Troop 45 at Hartville and Troop 47 at Greentown, a senior scout troop and Cub Pack 5.

School children in North Canton, both in the public and parochial schools will laugh at the alarm clock next Monday morning when, it shrills out its unwelcome mesr sage, turn over and go back to. sleep for another hour. For while the rest of the world- turns out sleepily for work at an advanced hour under daylight saving time, the school children will continue on their regular schedule, although at a later hour by the. clock. School officials plan to try this arrangement until they see how e£-. ficiently" it works and get- the opinion of the parents. Those on the rural routes, who have to leave for school earlier than the others, should benefit most from the later hour.

Rats in Classroom to Prove Lesson in Good Nutrition f Time is Valuable! -: It's the leakage of little driblets of time that saps our accomplishment, writes Robert R. Updegraff, business and advertising counsellor, in the current Rotarian magazine. One harassed war-industries executive, he recounts, found money couldn't replace the wasted periods. Dozens of successful personages, Updegraff relates, have completed their work in moments other people waste.

It is also part of their program to live up to their slogans, "Strong for America" and "Be Prepared." Groundhog Says "Winter"; Robins Chirp "Spring" The comparatively warm days of last week, while not exactly springtime, brought a" definite sign of spring when Mrs. Lee Scott of Portage St. reported seeing four robins in her yard. They \yere very- busy seeking food to eat and seemingly content that they were not out of season. Whether they thought spring had arrived and had flown north or whether they have been wintering here cannot be ascertained. But in any event, although the groundhog says the're-will-beat least six more weeks of- winter, the robins indicate that spring cannot'be too many Chaplain Morman Emch Speaker ai Rotary Democratic Efficiency to Win War, Guest Declares Chaplain Norman Emch of Louisiana, visiting in North Canton last week, was guest speaker at Rotary club Thursday evening.

So I did. It didn't take long to find them —the teacher very willingly showed me where they were. Up at the front of the class room in the home ec department two of them very contentedly curled up in their own little corners, seemingly content with their world and not at all put out at being caught in a school room. Miss Helen Schleppi, the teacher in the department very calmly stated, "This one doesn't act very well. A case of coffee nerves." Coffee nerves? In a rat? But that does seem to be the case. The two rats, both white, are part of a seventh grade hygiene class project, determined to show the difference between good and poor nutrition in the diet. Lulu and Bud, as the students named them lifter much discussion, are on entirely different diets. Lulu, already very tame, is fed meat, potatoes, milk, bread and butter, vegetables and fruit. Bud, much more timid in actions, is being very poorly fed, living on a diet of meat and potatoes, bread, candy, coffee, and soft drinks. (He also has a little lead in his diet now as well because he nibbled at my pencil point when I pushed it through the wire at him). For six weeks, which equals several years in human life, the two rats will be kept on their diets. At the end of this time the students will note the change in their appearance and behavior. The rats are to be weighed each week. Then, for six more weeks, the diets will be reversed, and the changes again noted. The project is part of the class work in the study of nutritions' in food and the value that certain types of food have for the body. o Legion Auxiliary Sews for Red Gross The next regular meeting of the American Legion auxiliary will be next Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 1:30 in the Community building. All members are asked to attend and bring their tax stamps so they can, be sent into state headquarters im- ' mediately. On' Wednesday of this week members of -the -auxiliary met for an all day Red Cross sewing- session at the Community building..At the last regular meeting plans were discussed for a party with'the Legion members in the near- future.
