l'"\ f V WlL^iHETSIGN ? X VOL. 23—No. 8 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1945 42.00 PER YEAR A Wave of Colds and Flu Closes Schools for a Week Group Thinkim In an effort to prevent a serious epidemic, the North Canton Schools were closed for a week's holiday after roll call Monday morning showed that 40 percent of the pupils were absent due to illness. While there is no way of breaking down the causes for absences in the schools, the authorities are faced with a cold situation rather than 'Flu' and that condition is not alarming. Three schools in the county were forced to close last week in an effort to control the wave iof colds and flu among the pupils. Jackson Township closed Friday morning when it was found that 220 of the schools 82S pupils were absent. The basketball game scheduled for last Friday with Ellet and the game wtih Hartville scheduled for Tuesday evening have been postponed.-It is not known at this time whether the game with Springfield Township will be played Friday night. I know I seem to keep harping on the dangers of group thinking in this country—but everywhere I go I see evidences of the growth' of this tendency. When I point it out, I am answered with the question, "Well, you believe in (naming their own group) getting their rights, don't you ?" I do— but I believe in something much more than that! I believe in all people everywhere in the world getting their rights, improving their standards of living, and availing themselves of new and wider opportunities for advancement. I do not believe the way to accomplish this is by leveling off. I believe in leveling up. But groitp thinking tends to level off. Whatever the group, whatever the circumstances, group demands for special privileges are disruptive. Dwight L. Moody used to tell a story which illustrated just this point. A small boy caught his hand in a valuable vase and it looked as'though the vase would have to be broken in order to free him. The real trouble was he was clutching at a miserable penny he had dropped in the vase and he couldn't get his clenched fist out. Too many groups are clutching at pennies today. They are seeking things for themselves, regardless of what they may endanger for that larger group of which they are a part. They want things for themselves and in their own way. They do not see ahead and recognize that to seek prosperity and and freedom for all, is the only way to achieve prosperity and freedom for any. Freedom is universal. Only license is privileged. There was a straw once that broke a camel's back, and if <■ we're not careful, some thoughless, selfish group is going to undo much .of the good that has been done by conscientious, -r..public spirited individuals, working throughout the years to *t"il".t ii!if»G prS^2&<*!<!^i'£%l&^'aS-O#"vt<3j*iI0Cj.'cu*y. - - We need above all understanding of our fellow men. We need to appreciate how allied are the desires of all of us. Nine out of ten times the dif erence of opinion between groups is just the same as between individuals, that is, we want our kind of work done in our way—our opponent wants his kind of work done his way .If we would once look at a problem from the other fellow's side—we would start our thinking from the points we have in common, not from our differences, and we would think as friendly individuals, not as opposing groups. HALTERS HURT WHEN CAR SKIDS Victor and Lucille Halter of West Eatchtel Street were injured when their automobile skidded into a ditch a half mile south of McDonaldsville on route 241, Saturday at 9 a. m. deputy sheriffs have reported. Both were taken to Mercy hospital where Victor Halter was treated -ftor an injury of the left eye and Lucille for contusions of the neck and chest.

Victory 'E* Bonds Fall Short of Total Goal Christmas Only Two Weeks Away/and— Only Two Gifts Received for Disabled Soldiers North Cantonites, have you forgotten so soon the wounded soldiers lying in the Veterans' hospitals in our country? Three weeks ago an appeal for gifts was made by radio and newspaper and to date all that has been received at the Village hall have been two, two gifts, just think of it! Are those two gifts going to be all that you give to represent North Canton, we who could raise $50,000 in three days for our own? Have we nothing for the ones who are all alone, and wounded because they stood in our'place? Think it over fellow citizens of North Canton! The Legion and Auxiliary are standing by, hoping that maybe, just maybe, the folks in town will remember by this coming Sunday that there are others besides themselves. Christmas is just a little more than two weeks away— Christmas time with all its colorful gaiety and laughter, -with its gifts and its happiness and its dreams for children and grown-ups alike. But for many folks the season will mean loneliness and heai-tache with their loved ones far away, some of them gone forever. There is little one can do to help them — but there are some folks that can be helped during the holidays ahead, giving them a little cheer and comfort. And those are the men and women in the service who must spend their time in the hospital. Many of them are suffering from wounds received on the battlefields. Many of them have already spent many long weary months in the hospital and face as many more ahead. Unless the folks who can help do so, there is little chance for them to have a merry Christmas at all.

In comparison with the seven other large counties in the state, Stark ranked seventh in E bonds, fifth in total individual sales, and sixth in grand totals. As members of the Stark County War Finance Committee reviewed results of the drive Saturday they reminded residents -of this Committee s The New Army Head The appointment of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to be chief of staff of the army is pleasing to the American people, who have the most unbounded admiration for this wonderful man and his marvellous record in leading the allied forces to victory in Europe. Gen. Eisenhower has had a magnificent history as a military leader, he has displayed wonderful qualities of organization, and has been a grand success in the diplomatic field. He has an amazing gift for winning support and cooperation. Through all the wonderful tributes of admiration given him, j .he has remained ever modest and self-effacing. There is .-—something very fascinating* and magentic about his personality, and he will do a marvellous job in his new position. Gen. George C. Marshall, who retires a!s chief of staff of the army, has made a magnificent record. A big share of the credit for the victory of tlie American forces should go to ,_ him. The people see him retire with keen regret. The Rights of Nations The executive committee of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America has issued a report on the post war situiation, which calls among various aims, for treaties of peace to make a beginning on establishing an "international bill of rights." The American people value the provisions of our constitution which are known as the "bill of rights." These secure freedom to the individual citizen and protect him against tyranny. How far can such a bill of rights be applied to nations, to secure their freedom from oppression and attack? If the. smaller nations could thus be given complete freedom and security in the enjoyment of their own rights, it would be a wonderful step in. progress. The smaller nations need to cooperate and work together harmoniously to secure themselves from attack by warlike neighbors. Folks who have pledged to donate to the Stadium fund are re minded that the deadline to fulfill those pledges is fast approaching. Next Sunday, Dec. 16, is the .day when folks are supposed to have fulfilled their promise to pay. There is still $10,000 dollars outstanding in unpaid pledges. The site has been acquired and grading is going ahead as fast as the weather permits, but just how far and how soon the work can be comnleted is a question in the minds of those on the committee, because the work cannot be completed unless all those unpaid pledges are fulfilled. A spokesman for the committee said it had been quite gratifying the way the pledges have been paid up to date and they wished to thank those participating. Pre-School Mothers j-kve Xmas Party The pupils of Rachel Freeze Green's school of expression entertained the members and guests of the Pre-school Mother's Study club Tuesday evening at the Community building. Norma Jean Bittman gave 'Christmas Confession,' and Nancy Carol Shane entertained with "The'Legend, of the "Christmas Rose." Group singing of carols and Christmas gift exchange climaxed the evening's "entertainment. The hostesses were Mrs. Walter Schiltz, Mrs. Burdette Wise, Mrs. William O'Brien, Mrs. Glenn Braucher, Mrs. Russell Willaman and Mrs. James Miller.

A Wave of Colds and Flu
Closes Schools for a Week
In an effort to prevent a serious
epidemic, the North Canton Schools
were closed for a week's holiday
after roll call Monday morning
showed that 40 percent of the pupils were absent due to illness.
While there is no way of breaking down the causes for absences
in the schools, the authorities are
faced with a cold situation rather
than 'Flu' and that condition is
Three schools in the county were
forced to close last week in an effort to control the wave iof colds
and flu among the pupils. Jackson
Township closed Friday morning
when it was found that 220 of the
schools 82S pupils were absent.
The basketball game scheduled
for last Friday with Ellet and the
game wtih Hartville scheduled for
Tuesday evening have been postponed.-It is not known at this time
whether the game with Springfield
Township will be played Friday
