Huber J. Snyd-r-r. i-ommisf-ion secretary, said thai four failed in the janitor and janitor-fireman tests, while three of 18 failed to receive passing grades of 70 in a city firemen exam. Skywatclier On my recent night time visits to the Observation Post I have been met by a squad of men from the Canton Civil Air Pa- ; trol which is guarding the shelter against yandals. In full Air Force uniforms and equipped with helmets and, business looking night sticks these fe"lows are certainly a force to be reckoned with by any one without the best of intent. It gives us a thrill to observe the faithfulness and zeal with which these young men stand guard thru out the long hours of the night. Here too, this effort which really is considerable, is compensated for only by the devotion to a need which is recognized to be real and the appreciation of grateful citizens. We are steadily increasing our enrollment of ground otfservers. School boys over thirteen with !h-ir parents consent, housewives, men who work nights, for daylight observation, and men who work days, for night duty. We sti'l can use-many mere, as the adaq-e goes, "Many .hands Tiake light work". By the way, I was talking to a '•■.-■u.ewife and mother the other ''ay who mentioned that this was he ideal way to get her letter -.vriting done — one of those :hings that is so difficult to find 'ime for ordinarily. While the '.Tier watcher is outside-observ- ' -ig. she is inside where its warm and comfortable writing letters. Another, told me she likewise gets lots of soxs mended in the same manner. Of course during these warm bright days such di-.ties can even be done while watching and listening for aircraft - with the report form and telephone close by. For those of you who did not get up for the housewarming or who would like to see the observers in action, the latch string is always out. I suggest, however, that it would be better to pay your visit during the day light hours. Won't you join us in this worthy effort? The duty is not hard nor arduous, it will not come with such frequency a.s to be a bore and the pay is I'eal- you're doing something for your country. Tho Board of Education has three vacam-ies to fill, with four men running lor the office. Robert J-. Lrauchcr, the present president of the board is running for ro"lcr.-tion. He should bo returned to office by an overwhelming majority, for the excellent job he has done in representing the people of the school district: for always being avail- albo to any and all who wish to voice their concern about the school and its affairs, and for the fair and honest manner in which he carries through his prornjsc.- to the people in pre- ..emine. to the Board of Education tiie people, side of the story. •Of tho other., running for a place on the Board of Education the people also have excellent men to fill the other two po=ts on the Board.

Nearly a year has passed and the resentment of the people against the extension of a runway for the purpose of bringing in jets has simmered down to a smolder , . , however, it has all the earmarks of bursting into flame again ... if some of the, shall we say, hand writings on the wall are interpreted correctly! The officials in charge along with the military last year decided against doing anything more a't the airport on proposed extensions of runways, due 'to the ire of' the people, who were concerned with the danger of the proposed runways and the fact that 'jets with live amunition would be flying over them. Their decision then was to do nothing until the public had cooled off and forgotten about the deal. No report has been made by any of the officials who are responsible, regarding what they have done or contemplate doing, with 'the airport, which still is p\iblic . property and-which the people who foot the bill have the right- Ho /know* However within the' past week a jet plane was brought onto the field from Youngstown. Does this mean they intend to use jetE here at Akron - Canton regardless of the danger involved? The military made' the statement they needed longer runways in- order to assure safe landings and takeoffs of theyjets. . .have they changed their minds of the necessity ... of safety-precautions? Are they planning on using the jets coming down from the north as one officer said they would at 30,000 feet and circling back over the base at 2300 feet' from the south over Canton to land. . .what if they overshoot the landing strip and have to pull up into the airlanes of the Akron Municipal Airport? Or will there be another crash such as happened at the air show, due to the inexperience of these "Week - End Pilots? Some of the big brass from Washington have been known to be in conference with local officials within the past few months yeg even weeks. . .Erivate closed meetings are known to have been held.
