Must We Have Strikes? Not many years ago the workers in cojal mines were paid njggfardly wages. The labor unions broke up the game of selfish owners of anthracite and bituminous coal mines. The early strikes called by the United Mine Workers were justified, and they were so reasonable that wages increased. But the time came when annual strikes were precipitated for very doubtful reasons. In this year 1945, with a great world war still banging- heavily over the United States, most everybody feels that strikes of all kinds are out of order. What have we got a Labor Department for, anyway? Unless that Department can be operated to control labor disputes it should be abolished—not only on account of its own useless- ness, but for the further reason of ridding the country of the ridiculous method by which .another Cabinet Officer, the head of the Interior Department, drops into the game and takes over the mines for the Government, while at the same time stabilization directors, war labor boards and brass-hats, edge in and add to the confusion. ■i,- Let's hope that a way can be developed to prevent labor W strikes during and after the war. * Meet the Gumbatsu Meet the Gumbatsu—and you'll leam something. Gumbatsu is the name the Japanese give to the clique of high ranking soldiers, industrialists, wealthy landowners and members of the imperial household. The Gumbatsu control Japan absolutely. Through the influence of the Gumbatsu the Japanese are indoctrinated with the thought—kill or be killed. They are not afraid to die. On the contrary, death on the field of battle for the Emperor is a one way ticket to the Japanese idea of heaven. There is no finer death, or assurance of a delightful after-life, to the Japanese soldier, w By the most recent count we have killed about 100,000 Japs antf only a handful of prisoners have been taken. The Jap soldier prefers death to capture. The Gumbatsu have sold the Japanese on the theory they constitute the Master Race, with 70 million Japs lording it over the 400 million conquered slaves scattered all over the ejnpn-p. the second largest in the world! It will take sacrifice on our part to lick the Gumbatsu. Thought you'd like to meet them. A Place of Refuge "Only the mind cannot be sent into exile." Though Ovid rwrote that centuries ago, like all truths, it is ageless. <<r Again and again in the history of our nation, it has been proven to us. Wave after wave of exiles from the strife, the hatreds, the discriminations and the persecutions of over- cluttered Europe, have helped to settle and to build the nation which we hold to be the finest on earth. Those who have come recently we call "refugees." However, this phrase wrongly sets them apart. Perhaps some among them are but refuge-seekers. Perhaps the minds of some are still overseas in their erstwhile homes. But these are but few among the great numbers who come here in the same spirit as our own ancestors—because America is the land of promise, the land where a rnian might still be free before his conscience and his God. Their bodies may have gone into 'exile, butt their minds have enriched the country to which they have come. Expressive of these Americans by choice, Earl Harrison, formerly United States Commissioner of Immigration and Naturalization, once told a story which so impressed me that 1 want to repeat it here: "A few weeks ago a leading attorney in one of our large cities was addressing a group of foreign-born petitioners who d-were about to be sworn in as American citizens. The speaker /opened his address by saying that he was going to read several lines from the Preamble to the Consitution. As soon as he started, almost the entire group of petitioners—more than two hundred strong—recited in unison and from memory the lines he was reading. Incidentally, the man who reported the incident said that the speaker was about the only one in th|at room who had to read that part of the Preamble." In commenting on his story, Mr. Harrison continued. "The days of unrestricted immigration are probably gone forever. But in the light of our history and the fine record made here by' those who have come from other lands, we will undoubtedly keep our gates reasonably open. From the humanitarian point of view, we cannot do otherwise; from the point of selfj interest, new immigrants would be giving our country the strength that the infusion of new blood always brings to it, geared to the necessity of fighting for a democratic way of life; new Americans who, thanks to the colossal stupidity of the Nazi regime are rapidly enrichening our nation with the fruits of their skills and their brains. There can be no doubt about the goals these people share in common with the rest of our population." "Only the mind cannot be sent into exile." Let us rejoice that throughout our history America has been the refuge of the best from all nations and from all peoples.

His wife, Mrs. Gloria Horner, resides in Canton. Lorenz Funeral Held Wednesday \« eturning Servicemen About 1,500,000 men of the armed services have already- been returned to civilian life. Probably a considerable portion of them were discharged because they are older men than the services want. What are the chances of the discharged men as they return; to civilian life? Those who have suffered some serious physical or nervous handicap may have some fears of the future, but the excellent training they get is likely to dispel that fear for most of them. Those who lack any such serious' disability are likely to tfee!l new power from new things they have learned, or from hard and difficult and dangerous things they have accomplished. These experiences have stimulated their ambition, and will make them more useful. Employers will be v^ry glad to get them. Daily Vacation Bible School to be Held at Zion Lutheran Church Beginning Monday, May 28 Zion Lutheran Church will conduct a four-weeks Daily Vacation Bible School in the Sunday School rooms of the church.

In the course of the morning the children will be instructed in Bible stories, hymns, prayers, handwork suitable to the age groups, and there will be a period of supervised recreation. Due to limited facilities only 50 children can be accomodated. This enrollment has already been reached from children in the neighborhood and from members of 'the Sunday School. It is hoped that next year the school can be increased for all who desire to attend to worship, "work, and play in Christian surroundings.

Then, even more than -now, the future looked pretty desperate and many folks believed that money invested in the government of tho United States was money thrown to the winds. That was why, with General Braddock facing the French and Indians in the west and supplies so greatly needed, Benjamin Franklin sat down and wrote a plea to his fellow patriots. The first appeal for supplies to aid in the war was written on a postwar, dated May 5, 1755 and was printed in German as well as English. The appeal was for horses and wagons to carry supplies for the advancing army. Covers were requested for the wagons to keep the supplies dry and each wagon was to be equipped with a hook or sickle fit to cut long grass that grew in the country beyond the) mountains. As all the wagons also carried loads of oats or Indian corn, persons who had such grain to dispose of were asked to be cautious in demanding extravagant prices for, their goods. It is recorded that results were obtained in the form of 150 wagons and 259 horses, all of which were obligate to Braddock for the duration of the campaign. Since that first public appeal for help, there have been increasing amounts of advertising when the government asked for public support with money or goods to aid in war. During the civil war an attempt was made to organize the banks in an advertising campaign to aid in raising money for the government. Because the banks did not fully cooperate in the spirit of the time, that first large scale advertising attempt was not successful. "Later, another and more successful campaign was conducted. The last World War saw a large increase in the amount of advertising and the amount of bonds that were sold. When the government has made its appeal to the presses of the nation, the people have responded generously. And now, in the current war, the government is making its Seventh plea to the people of the nation to invest their money in supplies so greatlv needed to wage a successful war. Since the time of that first appeal for supplies the government has faced many a crisis. And always, by the will and the work of the peopple, it has come through. That is why, with the greatest demand of the war being made on the pocketbooks of the people, they must not fail that plea. There is no question about it. The Seventh War Loan must go over. That money must be invested to buy supplies for men who are fighting the Jap hack to his own trap. When Ben Franklin wrote his appeal, he was asking for wagons and horses, and corn. Today, the supplies are better purchased with dollars that are contributed—supplies such as airplanes, machine guns, huge bombs and shells, medical supplies, blood plasma, and everything that fighting men in 1945 need for victory. The plea , then was the same as now—"Give your wealth—they are giving their lives." American Legion t@ Decorate Graves in Brief Service Sunday Community Memorial Service Eliminated Because of Working Hours Dispensing with the pre-war Memorial day Community service again this year, the North Canton American Legion post will attend the morning worship service at Zion Reformed Church Sunday morning as a group in commemoration of the occasion. *->»:-; Sunday afternoon at 1:30 the Legionaires will meet to decorate graves in the North Canton cemetery, Warstler cemetery and -St..

Must We Have Strikes?
Not many years ago the workers in cojal mines were paid
njggfardly wages. The labor unions broke up the game of
selfish owners of anthracite and bituminous coal mines. The
early strikes called by the United Mine Workers were justified, and they were so reasonable that wages increased. But
the time came when annual strikes were precipitated for
very doubtful reasons. In this year 1945, with a great world
war still banging- heavily over the United States, most everybody feels that strikes of all kinds are out of order. What
have we got a Labor Department for, anyway? Unless that
Department can be operated to control labor disputes it
should be abolished—not only on account of its own useless-
ness, but for the further reason of ridding the country of the
ridiculous method by which .another Cabinet Officer, the
head of the Interior Department, drops into the game and
takes over the mines for the Government, while at the same
time stabilization directors, war labor boards and brass-hats,
edge in and add to the confusion.

A Place of Refuge
