Vol. 37 — No. 35 2 Sections — 14 Pages NORTH CANTON, OHIO. WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 1963 10c Per Copy The Bible - Source of Melodious Joy False Perspective Can you remember back to the days before television and radio? When you were small and had to make up your own amusements instead of having them neatly set before you? If so, you probably found it great fun to look through the wrong end of a telescope ancl see how odd and different things appeared from that perspective. There are times today when it seems as though half the world is doing just that—far too many people seem tc, have lost their ability to judge distance, to see events in their proper significance. They just don't see the whole picture. It is a case of a false perspective. For example—we read the headlines on a newspaper story and, instead of getting the facts out of the text, we supply them according to how the headline strikes us. We don't stop to think that the headline writer was interpreting the story from his viewpoint. I know I have often found a story and a headline to be at complete variance. Then there is the false perspective of putting one's self in the forefront of a picture and determining distances as they relate to one's self. Hitler did that. So did Mussolini—and both of them found out they Were way out of perspective. We had a false perspective about the Soviet after the war. We forgot it was the Soviet and though of it as Russia, a nation which, during the hot war, had ultimately been allied with us—and whom we helped with arms and ammunition when it was a life or death struggle for her. We didn't realize that she was with us then only because she 'had a fight on her hands and needed help. We had lost our perspective and thought of Russia as & nation, rather than as a Soviet of States, dominated by fanatical zealots who hated all for which we stood. We underestimated the fact that Communists, wherever they are, may retreat before superior forces, but they fight back every step of the way. There is no truce possible with such enemies. We had a false perspective about time. We knew we cjould outproduce and we were certain we could outthink any nation in earth, but we lost our perspective and didn't see that they were working while we were talking. That we were playing hare to their tortoise—and unless we woke up, we would meet the same fatal result. ,Now we must wake up ancl look at things as they really are—not from the wrong end of the telescope. It is time for us to do what we can do—not talk about it. To correct our perspective and to get down to work to make our country strong and united, ready to face anything that might develop. Narrowing Space Gap It comes as a bit of a shock' to realize that Girdon Cooper's multiple orbiting of the eartH comes almost exactly tw.o years after Alan Shepard made the first U. S. manned rocket flight of a mere 302 miles down-range from Cape Canaveral. This short time span emphasizes the swift progress being made in space capability. There may be some disagreement with this view. Some observers assert that the United States should be moving forward more rapidly. There are demands for a greater effort to catch up with the Russians, who continue to be a move or two ahead, of this country in manned space flight. It is true that the Russians are ahead. And there is reason to think that President Kennedy was not speaking idly the other day when he predicted that tlle Soviet Union would maive "additional spectacular efforts in the next few months." If one considers that we started our push for manned space flight several years late? than the Russians, however, the Ui. S. performance appears strikingly good. Following the Cooper flight there is likely to be a long gap. Probably no further Mercury launchings will be made. Nepct on the manned flight agenda will be the first of the two-man Gemini orbitings, scheduled for late in 1964. The Russians may beat us to such a flight, too, but the gap is being narrowed. Ike On Experiments Former President Eisenhower said something recently which, though often said, bears repeating. It is particularlj good to have it said again by one who cannot by any excess of imagination be thought of as a radical. What Ike said on the occasion of the University of California's 95th anniversary concerned another anniversarj of vastly greater importance. He noted that the Americai system of government is now almost 200 years old. But hi added—and this is the point to be stressed—tha't it "is stil an experiment" and is "even today being tested." This is thfe thing so often forgotten. We tend to bi satisfied with the way things are, or to assume they hav< always been that way. Not so. They a,xve stall changing;, Tht changes can be for the better if we all work Kara enough at it, HH Frosh Coed Tops in State In English A Hoover High School fresh- nan was among 315 Ohio high .chool students who took top rate honors in the Final Dis- rict-State Scholarship Test con- lvicted May 4. announced E.

'Big' Deposit Made After Bank Hours r The deposit that really shook I Richard L. orth Canton's First 'National | "1(; peeler, Nor Bank branch came after regular banking hours. Tons of fre.'i.ght deposited itself in the southeast corner of the bank at 3:17 a.m. Tuesday, May 21. The freight was in a Commercial Motor Freight semi, which left its parking spot in front of The Hoover Co., crossed Main St. by itself and swung past the post office into the bank parking lot. Concrete auto 'blocks evidently guided the truck straight into the side of the brick bank structure. The impact knocked out a plate glass window and pushed the brick wall in. While the little drama took olace outside in the early morning hours, truck driver, Oliver B. IRusaell, 59, of '2905 Cherry Ave. SE, Canton, sat unsuspecting in Bill's Diner, enjoying a coffee break. He was told about his "miss- :ng" truck toy a fellow truck driver. 'Five other auto accidents were investigated within the last week by North Canton police.

Bend- roth, 38, of 934 Pine Ave. The accident took place at 8:05 a.m. lights On' Urged For Holiday Weekend Drivers Memorial Day weekend is almost here again. This holiday marks the beginning of increased highway travel and also increased highway hazards. Governor James A. Rhodes and Warren C. Nelson, director of the Ohio Department of Highr- i way Safety, are asking the co- j operation of all motorists in an all-out-effort to reduce holiday accidents. Police Chief Col. Robert D. Fulk has added a voice of warning for North Canton area drivers an-j pedestrians to take extra care, keep themselves and "t'ier« from harm, and maintain the City's good safety record. the official tabulated holiday period begins Wednesday, May 29. at 6 p.m. and lasts until midnight Sunday, June 2 — a total of four and one-fourth days. Local law enforcement officials and the county and state patrolmen will be working around the clock to eliminate a.s many accidents as possible. Again, it. is suggested tha' autoists participate in the "Lights On" safety campaign as a special reminder to drive carefully.

Spot checks will he continued irovtghout the summer, says | olice Chief Fulk. Art Really Has Ideas The Hoover Co'.s Bernard Art" Dow received his third lggestion award in three onths recently.
