The Writing on ihe Wall ••' The_ writing on the wall is everywhere now ,for anyone to see—^regimentation. Regimentation of jobs, of income, of living*conditions, of time, thought, and action. This iii 'on:e*-oX th*** he.'Tfa.uuif'oL lolixY wt-ir in seel<ing"crfe greatest efficiency, and'production, from available man and woman-power.- How to so gear output that our standards of living at home will remain "American" and our armed forces will be supplied on time with all the unprecedented needs of global warfare, is the problem. In theory, it is protection through equalization, "temporary" control of individual activity for tne country's good in time of emergency. jfc) While our people willingly accept "temporary" restrictions as a necessity of war, the thing to remember is that word "temporary." We must not drift into a mental attitude that will pave the way for permanent regimentation. That isn't the kind of people we are. What we have, what we are fighting for, is our roots, growing deep into the soil of free enterprise and free thinking, and the privilege of minding our own business. That privilege is what we must go back to, after war, if freedom as we have known it is to survive in America. Recognition of Scholarship The scholarship and war bond contest now proceeding in Stark county for high school seniors is particularly interesting, in that success in it depends largely on good scholarship. Good scholarship is a thing too little recognized in this country. -It does not get all the reward of popularity and fame Awhich it merits. When we send students to schools, we ask ™hem most urgently to study faithfully, and acquire knowledge. When they follow that counsel and do their best, they have deserved generous rewards and the applauce of the community. This contest gives them the chance to win such a reward,' and we should all shout enthusiastically for these competitors. It takes hard and constant study to do well in such a contest. We should applaud all who have passed the preliminary tests for entrance to this competition. Our people should be greatly interested in this competition and glad to expend their purchases of war bonds and thus gain the right of voting their preference in this competition. Nature's Swan Song There is an ancient fable that swans before their death will sing a bright and melodious song. So many of Nature's trees, before shedding their foliage for the winter's sleep, seem to sing a swan song of glory as their leaves turn to brilliant yellow or red. It is like a kind of grand fireworks demonstation, as if Nature wished to give one more glorious manifestation of power and. beauty before sinking down for her wintry rest. In the days of autumnal foliage, the earth seems toansform- ed to a symphony of color, in which a grand anthem of praise to God is sung by the leafy chorus of verdure.

NO REST FOR fHEMfcKED /
Big Job for Mrs. America
It's an ill wind that blows nobody good, and at least it
can be said of the present emergency that widely disseminated knowledge relative to fire prevention in the event of
incendiary bombing, is making the people of our land actively fire-prevention conscious.
For the first time in history, the American housewife
can systematically do first line work in fire prevention. She
can attack those piles of old magazines and newspapers;
those mountainous collections of desiccated sewing scraps left
by the family dressmaker of a bygone day; the corner by the
chimney partitioned off for young George's dark room, and
still full of highly inflammable equipment, although young
George is now serving in his country's armed forces. Only
the housewife can make a systematic cleanup of such accumulation.
No one ever looks at old magazines and newspapers, although Father has been saving them since 1910, on the
premise that sometime he might want to "find something."
Mother has saved sewing scraps because in the back of her
(||mind for years has been the housewife's dream that maybe
' some day she might make a hooked rug for the upper hall.
Young' George's high school hobby was photography. But
nowadays' Father is busy with air warden duties, Mother
is involved in all manner of war work, and young George has
no time for hobbies.
So the American housewife can really clean the attic,
and more power to her. She can, with traditional strength
and enthusiasm, cripple the red menace of fire.
