VOL. 30 NO. 15 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1955 7c PER COPX There is an attitude abroad that is too reminiscent of a iblack hat and a' furled umbrella and the phrase "Peace in our time."

Of people who mean 'well, who think well, who are all right inside — but who iaire seemingly afraid to stand up for their beliefs.

Frank Bow Reports From Washington, D.C. For the first time 'in the long and colorful history of 'the nation, there will be a small pray. er room open to Members of Congress when the 84th Congress assembles in Washington early next month. The completion of the small, initer-denomihationa] worship room brings to fulfillment the dream of many members of the House and Senate. Built through the cooperation of Protestant, Catholic and Jew. ish leaders, the prayer room will be open twenty - four hours of the day to all Representatives and Senators for meditation and prayer. The beautiful little room, located between the House and Senate chambers, was designed with special emphasis on making it available to all religious faiths. I am pleased to have been a member of the legislative subcommittee that approved the building of the prayer room and I am further impressed with the final result. It is a small room with a plain altar and restful chairs. It has a beautiful stained glass window, otherwise It is furnished quite plainly. Some of the chairs have kneeling benches. There has never been a place of this nature available lor retreat and meditation before, and in our committee discussions on appropriating the funds, It was i sincerely felt that such a room I would be regularly used 'by a Crowning Of The Queen At Snowball Dance Pictured above the crowd watches as Ann Austin was crowned queen of the Snowball Dance, one of the highlights of the Christmas season held annually under tht> sponsorship of the North Canton Community Building for the younger set.

The anticipated overflow in high schools is occurring at a time when fewer college students are becoming interested in high school teaching. In 19#0, 86,890 persons qualified for high school teaching certificates compared to only 55,458 in 1953. j The numerous organizations which have looked into' the problem have cited salary and social acceptability as contributing factors to the !tieacher shortage. We hope the education conferences get the full gup- port of state governors and.territory officials. The ?70Q,- 000 which the new law makes available to defray portions of costs of the vast meetings will be well worth the effort to meet our problem of teacher and classroom shortage head on. Dictators Must Lose We in Ameiica are, throughly familiar with one of the truly remarkable ma'nife.statipns of God's great purposes. Sometimes we forget it, but when we realize that our country's ability, to build the atomic weapons which hastened the ending.of World War II and inay ultimately enable us to prevent wars in the future was based upon the scientific knowledge borne to our shores by men exiled from countries dominated by tyrants, the truth strikes home. Without the brilliant mathematical and physical discoveries and theories of. such men as Einstein and Fermi, we would not be in the position of preeminence which is our happy lot today. Had these men coptributed their brilliance,tjo the dictators of Europe, America's1 destiny would toe far more uncertain than it is at tjfijs moment. Germany, even now, is experiencing a similar development. West Germany*s industry has expanded enormously in .the past five years.
