First, it marks the beginnings of the country we hold dear. But it is not that which is of greatest significance. Nearly five hundred years before Columbus, the Norsemen had been here, and other explorers would have come—for the taking of Constantinople by the Turks had shut off the overland route to xhe East, and men were forced out into new courses and new ways of thought. The voyage of Columbus teaches us the value of applied curiosity—the value of doing something with the things we leaniu North Canton Community Fund drive to raise funds for charitable purposes, including general youth activities, gets under way with a meeting of the Chairman, Associate Chairman, and the Captains with Charles Williams at the Community Building Wednesday evening, October 22 at 6:30 p. m.

Every path he followed ?£. But each time he started all over;-again, determined to' find out. At last the way was opened. "When it was, he was ready for his opportunity—equipped mentally to carry through. That is the lesson in Columbus' voyage. The power to find out, the willingness to' see, plus the ability to keep on, is the real secret of success. The greatest advantage in education is that'it teaches us how to find out how to study and how to learn. There may not be new continents to discover', but there are opportunities equally as great before those who have eager jninds. There are no heights to which the man with an idea 1 may not climb—no oceans of ignorance he may not cross to find .the unknown treasure he seeks. Each man is a potential Columbus—and whether he voyages into the unknown depends upon how great is his determination to find out what lies'beyond his horizon. Oiir Common Interests Common suffering welds together people of different nationalities as though they were members of the same family. Condition aims bind together people of different faiths. Common ambitions coordinate the actions of people of different backgrounds. , After all, what does common mean? According to the dictionary it is "usual, average, regular, and pertaining to' or participated in by all". There must be no division in a, democracy*,' A very great man once said: "The foundation of unity is the equality of status of the citizens." In short, if law is to be effective it must be applied always, everywhere and to all. We 'have learned from bitter experience that to be truly free, men must have,the assurance for all alike of an opportunity to work as free men in the company of free men. No .man can be confident in perpetuity of his own safety unless and until every man, woman and child is equally safe. Common ambition is working together toward the same goal—a prize which will be shared. Rival ambition is striving for a goal Which must be seized for the benefit of the one and the detriment of the other. Will we let rival ambitions separate us? If we are to fulfill our duty as Americans, we must, without setting aside any of our individual rights, work together in our community or communal life, to carry out the ideals of democracy, to see to it that there are opportunities for each man to advance according to his talents and abilities, to extend a'friendly hand to those who need help, to keep the laws which we ourselves have made. Only faith behind democracy can foster the common virtues which are necessary for self government and for the preservation of our unity. Centuries ago Euripides stated it thus: * "Look-to the things of God. • ', Know you are bound to help all who are wronged, 7 Bound to constrain all who destroy the law. What else holds state to state save this alone, o,,.'-'„That each one honors the great laws of right. We did this in war..We must do it now, if this is to be an era-of peace and not just an armistice between wars, j ; .

Miss Doris Renner has been elected temporary chairman of the club. 6 YEAR OLD JUDY BRINER OF GREENTOWN HIT BY CAR Six year old Judy Briner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Briner of -Greentown, * suffered a. fractured collarbone and leg, tcalp and hand and face bruises Saturday morning* when struck by and auto on Route 8 in Greentown, deputies reported. The girl was taken-- to Mercy hospital and later transferied to Little Flower Hospital, where her condition was reported as good. Deputies said the child was playing- on the sidewalk and suddenly darted into the street, into the path of a car driven by Gerald H. Zviek of R. D. 2, Louisville. He said he swerved his car but that a rear fender struck and injured her before he could stop. John-A. Bastian, Ohio' fire; control forester, today asked The North Canton Sun to remind its readers that burning- permits are required during October and November in all forest fire protection districts of the state. No fires may be kindled in the open air .within 200 feet of any dry grass or leaves, outside of incorporated towns and villages, without first securing a burning permit from a local forest fire warden. Strict safety precautions are printed on each permit, and these must be followed or the permit.is thereby voided, and the holder is liable for violation of Ohio fire laws. Bastian said that sharp September frosts have set the stage for an early forest and grass fire season this fall. Also, that the sustained heavy rainfall of the past spring and summer has resulted in one of the heaviest crops of tree foliage in many years, thus creating an added hazard. "The Ohio forest fire laws", says Mr. Bastian, "are intended to provide protection to growing timber, crops, fences and farm structures against the acts of careless, irresponsible persons. The good citizen will be quick to see that requirement of burning permits gives protection to his own property and to his community. Outstanding leaders throughout the state, interested in the preservation of soil, water .and wildlife, assert that organized forest fire protection has proved to be one of the soundest conservation practices over adopted in Ohio." if m era imtmn ZION REFORMED BETHANY CLASS TO HOLD PARTY The Bethany Class of the Zion Evangelical and Reformed Church will * hold -a masked Hallowe'en party on Thursday evening, October 16 at S p. m.

CHARLES KIDDER SANG AT HIRAM COLLEGE PUBLIC CONCERT Charles Kidder, who is a junior at Hiram College sang two solo numbers when the college presented a public cooncert Tuesday night in Drury Hall.

When you vote YES on the 4 mill j school levy, remember that it i means only a l-fe mill increase over present taxes and that is onlv t 12Vz cents per month per 1,000 valuation. Compare this insignificant cost for the education of our children with the cost of_ ice cream, chewing "gum, tobacco,' "niovfes "etc. per month. It is also well to remember _that the home owner and small business man. together pay only 48% or less than half the taxes paid in this school district. if To Hold Jubilee mm Kerr, rotinner © www s Traffic Accidents And Violations Charged by deputy sheriffs with failure to stop for a halted school bus east of Canton on Route 30, Gerald A.

School costs have also increased and local income for schools is the same as it was in 1940. It is indeed fortunate that individuals need not purchase food, cars, .radios, furniture, houses etc. on a 1940 income. The school system cannot be expected to function efficientlyji^^^^^t-i a 1940 in- •- There "^^S^^^WwetIlods of Tmancingl-sp^S'A^Jjf the first methods used _and.still .in..use in Europe is that the elementary schools are supported by the public. All education beyond that must be obtained in private schools. Naturally only those with sufficient wealth can avail themselves of a High School education. This is a very undemocratic method and does not conform to our constitutional concept of equal opportunities and freedoms for all. A second method is to depend entirely upon national or state aid wherein a central government also exercises its prerogative of dictating what subjects are to be taught .and communistic or faseistic propaganda is dispensed according to the desires of an* autocratic power. Germany and Italy in the !1930's and Eussia now. are examples oi this niethod of school financing. Schools locally controlled in accordance -with the need of a community, must be financed in part through local - effort. Here again there are two accepted methods. Long ,term bonds can be issued for operation and expansion or a community can plan ahead for 3T~com- paratively short period, say- five years, pay expenses from current levies and accumulate the excess in a reserve fond for future building and modernization. The issuance of long term bonds makes the annual cost to each taxpayer, somewhat lower at the time but he gets measurably less for each dollar. Payment of interest and principal extend through periods of depression as well as through years of prosperity.. The present North Canton High School building was built in 1929. A $65,- 000 bond issue at 5% was passed in 1927 and this is being terminated this year. The total cost of this bond issue was $65,000 on the principal and §38,000 has been paid in interest, thus North Canton taxpayers received '63 cents for each tax dollar. The last addition and improvements to. ..the grade ^school building were financed by issuing 40 year bonds in 1921 for $120,000 at 6%. The total -cost of these bonds, will be $120,000 for principal and $142,240 for interest. The taxpayer here- .receives. omy 45 cents "for each dollar whicn ne pays but the board'had no alternative because voters wanted to keep taxes low during the preceeding years. The old* building "may have to be rebuilt before 1960 when- the last bonds are paid off. It seems that it would be- smart to continue the "2% mill levy .which North Canton has had for the past 5 years, thee making possible a building and improvement res- serve, against the-' time when increased enrollment makes expansion mandatory. Present operating costs are higher than ever and an additional 1% mill levy will barely take care of increased costs: Operating* costs are still.below the per pupil.cost in neighboring cities and carefjal management;. will, niake possible a continued increase in the building reserve -and also -pay operating costs; If..costs,, should drop in the- nexf.' five, years -then more 9 p. m'.';7'7 v .
