"You Must In general the people of a democracy decide for themselves what they will do. To be sure, there is a constitution to observe and there are laws to obey, but the people can amend the constitution and revise the laws. In an election the "losers" agree in advance to submit to the will of the majority. The spirit of democracy is expressed in, the words "I will." In a dictatorship an over-all authority says "You must." ' Even in the rare "elections" there is little choice but to line up with the "leader" by voting "Ja." Compulsion is the characteristic of a dictatorship. . When war threatens, and more especially when it breaks, democracies find it necessary to use some compulsory methods. In the United States the Selective Service Bill (popularly called "The Draft") was the first of the compulsory war measures which affected any Considerable number of Americans. Even under that act it was still possible for men to choose their branch of service, that is, to volunteer. As the war progressed in extent and intensity, more and ^jpnore features of our daily living have been put on a compulsory basis. This is naturally resented by many freedom- loving people, even though they recognize the reason and the need for compulsion'. Some—a minority—either refuse to comply or comply so reluctantly that serious enforcement problems arise. These non-compliers violate the rationing regulations by secret hoarding. They cause others to violate price regulations by offering bonuses in order to get scarce articles. (This pjFacJJigcy^F-alled a "black market" or "bootlegging.") They ■tf^re .nibber and gas by fast driving, by taking unnecessary trips, by failing to pool their cars. In several instances the government has postponed prt- [ting compulsory regulations into effect, preferring to aero'.*-*.-' i Although the outlook on the battlefronts may not be good, the folks at home.can do their part to improve it for their own side if they go all out for the nation-wide scrap drive. For America is short on the scrap iron needed to keep her armament factories producing the arms for the men on the front line. So the anpeal is going out to every loyal American to look in every possible corner for some metal to add to the- collection. And America is short on rubber to keep her armies rolling and her navies in the battle. So she is also appealing to her citizens to save every scrap of rubber they can find and add it to the pile of available stock. And America can use old rags, too, and manila rope and burlap bags and other metal of all kinds in her war effort. Her only possible source for most of this material is from the homes and farms of those who are supporting this war with all their effort in order to finish it as quickly as possible and bring the boys home safely again. To all America, not the neigh bor next door or the man up the street—but to every last citizen in this town, in this vicinity, in this county, state and country, there is just this to say, "your status after the war depends on the stand you take now; to support your country and contribute every bit of junk material that you can and keep that country free and whole; or to let it down with an indifferent attitude now, and bow down to a dictator later." Families with men at the bat- tlefront know the great necessity of doing all they can to help — and other families are going to learn it in the future. For the war will be paid for in blood, sweat and tears and the quicker we in America can help to end it the less the cost will be. So when the scrap collection committee calls at your home for your contribution, have your scrap leady for them. Those who live in rural sections are asked to call the chairman and he will see that it is collected.

There are two principal ways: 4 1. They can become thoroughly informed. 2. They can create public sentiment. Most people will voluntarily and gladly comply with governmental suggestions for the common good when they really understand the situation which confronts this nation today, the absolute need for everyone to help, either as a member of the armed forces, as a producer in industry or agriculture of vital supplies, or as a transporter of those supplies, and by care In using essentials, by sacrificing non-essentials, by investing in war bonds and stamps. Rotary clubs can help in this spreading of information by means of their weekly metings and their club publications. Individual Rotarians can further the effort through the other organizations to which they belong. Churches, lodges, clubs of many kinds, chambers of commerce, granges, and scores of other organizations ought to be encouraged to inform their members about these important matters by means of Jectures, discussions, study groups, forums, etc. - Law enforcement officers say that public sentiment be hind a law is almost essential to its effective enforcement. An informed public will develop s. sentiment which will facilitate the enforcement of regulations already passed. It may even bring about voluntary compliance, however reluctant, and so obviate the necessity for some further regulations. The United States is engaged in a titanic struggle, an all-out, total war. To win it is going to take the cooperation of every American. If compulsory measures are necessary to get cooperation—to that extent we are misusing a part of our resources. If we meet the challenge voluntarily—to that extent we are demonstrating the strength and effectiveness of democracy. Let's say "I will" and then do whatever is necessary. —From The Journalette, Rotary Club of Minneapolis, Minn.

New Rate to Go Into Effect at Once North Canton residents who use only an average or small amount of .gas each month will find their August bill slightly lower than it has been for the past several years. This reduction is due to a graded reduction in rate from, the East Ohio Gas Co. that is to go into effect immediately. However, due to this graded reduction, those who use large amounts of gas for heating their homes will find that their rate will rise higher during the winter. months. In reducing the-cost of the gas, the company stated that approximately 85 per cent of all users will be able to effect a reduction in their regular monthly bill. Under the present rate the consumer pays $1.18 for the first 1000 cubic feet of gas used, while under the new arrangement he will save 28 cents on the bill for the month. This amount is reduced as the amount, of gas used increases. HARRY WILLIAMS SAYS— 'i'i'ihi No-,.'-' a . jv. i0-.iiei'j . ic ?.'•: .■■.stc-i ,i - '• '_, Dcretie Cr.r'kyj', tY-tty sl'.y-r.

Due to the response of ' the audience last week another water baseball game, with floating bases will be held. This will start at 7 o'clock, with the water show afterward. .The program will last more than an hour. Only a small audience turned out last Friday evening to watch the spoiling' events. However, the swimmers had plenty of fun and exercise before the evening was over, playing baseball without a bat, two games of volleyball and water polo. Junior McCue's team won the baseball game from Frank Burk- holtz's team. Several doubles were hit but there were no triples or home runs. In the volleyball games the teams split the wins, with the first team winning the game four to two and the other team taking the second game four to one. The polo game was a scoreless tie. A canoe tilting contest is planned to be held at the pool in the near future.

Alaska, Land of Mountains, Flowers,Has Charm All Its Own Right now Washington is being told by all kinds of experts' that there are many ways to make synthetic rubber and to do it without delay. This suggestion leads to all kinds of disagreements that have reached the stage mentioned by Alexander Pope considerably over 200 years ago, when he tasked the question: "Who shall decide when doctors disagree?" The political doctors of the war administrators do not agree with the heads of 14 of the biggest oil companies, 5 of the greatest chemical corporations, and 4 of the-biggest rubber manufacturers of the United. States. They agreed with Secretary of Commerce Jones in April to produce all the synthetic rubber needed for civilian and military needs. But . none of these concerns have been given the "go" sign by the government. Temperature in Southern Part of Country Ranges From 15 to 79 Degrees Above Zero; Game Plentiful and Sometimes Dangerous "It is a beautiful place to live and, its beauty just grows on a j person so that7 he never wants to leave there," is about the way Harry Williams sums up all his enthusiasm for Alaska, northern possession of the United States. And Mr. Williams is one person who knows whereof he speaks for he has just returned from a small village there after a stay of several years. Son of C. B. Williams, executive secretary of the Community building, Mr. Williams is not a stranger in North Canton but with his lively conversation about the land where he has spent the last several years he leaves no doubt that he is just as much if not more at home there th.n here." And as he talks of Alaska, one begins to see with him th- beauty of the- land, the rugsvidnc-ss of the frontier life the people theie must live, and the excitement that bor ders many of the daily experiences there. Likewise, as he talks, one learns a whole new geography lesson, for the Alaska of ice and snow and Eskimos is much different from the Alaska of vivid flowers, Indian natives, rainy weather and garden clubs he describes. • On the island of Wrangell in southeastern Alaska where Mr. and Mrs. Williams and their small daughter, Judy Pat, lived there are 1500 persons living in the village stretched along 7 miles of roadway. There are no homes off that highway because the mountains rise high behind them and the ocean stretches out in front. Thirty per cent of these persons are white and the rest are Indian natives. Fishing is the chief means of making a living, with a small group of business and professional men living there to handle the necessary work in that line. In good years the rewards of the fishing season are high while other years they -re comparatively small. But on iin „ plentiful and often ferocious. The Kodiak bear, much larger than a grizzley, is a man eater common there and Mr. Williams can tell several stories of experiences with them—or rather, running away from them. Bull moose, deer, smaller bears and wolves are also common there. "Should the island by any chance be cut off from the rest of the country for a time," Mr. Williams said, "there is enough game there for the people to live on." On the island of Wrangell there aie seven missionaries, representing seven different denominations. And although they have converted the natives to Christianity they still hold their tribal religious dances to their Gods, including the Christian one with their own. The environment of the town is typically frontier, with the women doing most of their shopping for clothes from Sears and Roebuck and Montgomery Ward catalogues. j Movies there are usually about j five years old.

The plea goes to all mothers to do this as part of their contribu^ tion to the war effort because it is essential that working men and women get plenty of rest, If there is a park or place away from the home where the children may play, send them there during the play hours. An(i when they are at home keep them at quiet games as much as possible. Small children do not realize that they are particularly noisy and are disturbing other people. So it is up to the parents to guide them in their play and do all that they can to help their neighbors.

For regardless of their classification as defense workers or other special groups, they will be denied the right to new tires if they have carelessly wasted their old ones. This warning comes from Birkett L. Williams, regional administrator of the Office of Price Administration who stated that investigation indicated too many cars and trucks are continuing to operate at speeds well in excess of 40 miles per hour. and a rationing board certificate to buy new tires is not a license to waste our inadequate and precious national rubber supply by excessive speed on highways," he stated. State highway officials have been asked to cooperate with the OPA in reporting the license number of every highway vehicle running over 40 miles per hour. This information regarding excessive speed will be transmitted to the local rationing hoards with the request that the offender's application for tires will be denied. In view of the fact that every possible means must be taken to I conserve rubber, officials feel that this will be the only means of making some motorists observe the re- quate to .meet legitimate demands quested speed limit. Eight Arrested Here in Week With the slackening of traffic through North Canton, traffic arrests fell off to a minimum'. Only fi^e motorists were arrested in the village during the past week, setting a new low in recent police records. August Miller of Massillon "was arrested for driving while under the influence of liquor and the others who faced reckless driving charges were Fred Glover of Akron, John Duff Tremelling of Canton, W. H. Dorn of Canton and Virgil R. Hoffman of R. D. 6. State officers arrested Earl Miller of Akron and Ivan Davis of Ravenna for speeding and deputy sheriffs arrested Raymond Wayt of Sebring for reckless driving.
