:'> - f*W(X*X ;«* a-6-«<fc Dane-geld f Kipling once wrote a poem about the Danish pirates who, nearly a thousand years ago, preyed on the coast of England and collected Dane-geld to stay away; and he showed how fallacious was the idea that "paying Dane-geld ever got rid of the Dane." The nations of the world learned again at Munich that "peace in our time" only m6ant that our time was measured. What's the difference in dictators? Whether it be Mussolini strutting on his balcony, Hitler screaming in a rage— or Stalin making his puppetsJ walk out whenever he can't have' his own way—or other lesser dictators, ready to do exactly the same things whenever the chips are not all on their side of the table ? A dictator is a dictator and it never pays to appease him. But—the one thing we always can do is—not to do business with liim. It doesn't make any difference whether for the moment he is on our side of the fence or the other. His methods are wrong. And we certainly learned as children that the only way to make a bully, change his tune is not to play with him. Brutal talk ? Yes, but these be brutal times. The peace we hoped for after the war is not here. The peace we wanted we are not achieving. Our time seems again to be but seconds. Why? Because we have appeased. We want about what we thought was our business instead of taking care of the most important business of all. We agreed, compromised and acquiesced in order to concentrate on our own affairs and forgot tfrat in order to Tiave the read, smooth the line must be true. We paid Bane-geld—and not only overseas. Caifr we -stili^correct mv errors V y/p ean-^-but only if as individuals **^;tM^,back\'x! tii$ st%i«'J5t,iin.eK-and -we must not de it at-)the expense of any one, of any group, of any nation. We must make up our mind what we want—and mak6*every. one know that we do know what we want. This is .^.s true today as it was in the days of which Kipling wrote. We must do as he advised, and stand firm, armed ^tnd ready, that we may be able to say: ' ,' "We never pay any one Dane-geld ,' ' No matter how^ trifling the cost, For the end of that game is oppression and shame, --£, And the nation that plays it is lost!" Questions We Cannot Escape The purpose" of American society to make steady progress toward the goal of liberty and justice for all has never been better defined than it^Was by" Abraham' Lincoln. Starting, from '.the principles of the Declaration of Independence, Mr. Lincoln said, "Public opinion on any subject-always has a 'central idea' from which all its minor thoughts radiate. The 'central idea' in our public opinion at the beginning' was . . . 'the equality of man'; and, although it has always submitted ^patiently whatever inequality seemed to be a matter of act- ^ual necessity, its constant working has been a steady and "^progressive effort towards the practical equality of all men." What Mr. Lincoln said so truly and so clearly in the middle of the 19th century is stillttrue and must always remain true of America. Democracy,in this country is tested and proved in every generation by; the degree to which it succeeds, in applying the principles of the Declaration of Independence to the lives of all the American people. Is there more opportunity for more people so' that the sons of the lowliest may, by the exercise of virtue and hard work, attain the goal toward whic¥ they strive? Are"the civil rights of all guaranteed and protected so that, in the wise employment of them, men of talent, however obscure today; may live to bless the common life of. us all .tomorrow?. Is racial and religious prejudice—and its unseemly offspring, discrimination.—consigned to the limbo of all foul and unjust things which' do not belong in a country like ours? These are the questions which sincere and conscientious Americans have always asked about America and to which they, have sought the right answers. For by them the progress of our American way. of. life is tested. We cannot, escape, them .because, in Mr. Lincoln's words,'the constant working of public opinion in America "has been a steady and progressive effort towards the practical, equality of all men." * Driving to the Right One habit which causes some automobile accidents, is the tendency of some drivers .to drive too near the center of the road. There is a temptation to a fast driver to get away too far from the side., It takes aJittlet-more time on a curving highway to keep near the right side, and the side of the road may be & little rougher^- .. - • -- If on one of these' curves a car comes around swiftly, the driver who' is too" close to the center 3s sometimes in danger of getting hit. Then there are the-impatient people who can't wait a bit before passing a slower car, and who try to pass when they are rounding & curve" when* the road ahead is .concealed. If they get well over to the-left side, and if a car comes*fast in the opposite direction, there is often danger of a smash. , * * ** VOL. 22—No. 43i NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1946 $2.00 A'YEAR A rtGallery Presents Printmakers Show North Ganton Annexation Approved by County Board . . % County commissioners announced that they have approved the annexation of 200.38 acres of-land to the corporation of North Canton. -' ' I ,' j The land is in two tracts, one east of the present corporate limits and the other to the north and residents in the area voted in favor of annexation at the primary election. In hearings 'before the commissioners protests against the proposed annexation were registered by a majority of the resident property owners in the section north of the village and east of the Canton-Akron road but the commissioners held that they could not divide the territory without injury'to the whole general plan. In a formal statement issued in announcing their decision, the commissioners called attention to the fact that a majority of persons affected voted in favor of annexation and that health, sanitary, fire and police protection as well as zoning and building regulations can be handled better by the village than by the county authorities. "The village of North Canton," the statement says, "is a beautiful city of nice homes, large industry, good,business and the best of environment, all of which are very inducive to progress and future growth of the-village." "After careful study of the territory affected, it seems impossible to exclude any portion of the proposed annexation without destroying the symmetry and geographical limitations of the remaining affected territory." The anexation now becomes effective and village officials have declared that the village is now ready to extend all of its muncipal Services to the territory included in the merger.

Beloved Teacher Honored at Reunion Saturday Miss Anna Metzger, was the guest of honor at a reunion dinner held Saturday night, August 3 at the Hoover Camp, by members of her school classes which she taught 56 years ago.
