Don't slacken! Don't let the dazzling rainbow of victories won blind us to the fact that the storm is not yet over, that the clouds are still dark above us. The end is not yet. Winston Churchill warned us of that when he said this ' was., the end of the beginning—not the beginning of the end. And we must take, heed. It is the end of the beginning—of the period of indecision, of the hour in which we woke from dreams of peace to the reality of war, of the days and nights in which we had to reorganize not only our lives but our manner of thought, to reorient ourselves to a word ruled by the exigencies of war. But the end is not yet. We cajmot win the war by over- ••* confidence, we cannot assume the game is over when the play , begins to run our way. The decision will come at the end of the game when the last play has been made and the last battle : fought. We cannot leave the field until the final second of the game. We want to win this war that we may return to what jMSve had. We do not want anything from any other nation. We ;=9Wnt only FOR other people that freedom which we claim for ourselves—the freedom of speech, expression and reli- i gion, the freedom from want and fear. < We cannot win this war by wishing. We have to win it by work. The'quickest way to win the war is the best way to win it, and this means discarding everything that won't help in the all out effort. To win the war we must have neither idle hours nor idle dollars. But money is not enough. Production is'not enough. Men are not enough. We must add to these that extra effort, that all essential will to win. We * must accept restrictions—willingly. We must do all we can— gladly. We must not allow ourselves to be caught by Axis inspired propaganda. We must not hr spreaders of rumor. We Student Honor Roll Reflects Seriousness of Present Day Eighty-Eight Rank in Upper Brackets of Scholarship; Fifty- Seven Have All Grades Above Ninety- Affected by the seriousness of present day affairs around ;hem, the students at North Canton high school have apparently applied the same seriousness to their school work, for :he honor roll this gradihg period has shown a decided' up- >vard swing in the number of students who have attained high marks. Members of the senior class led .he rest of the school in both the lighest honor roll, for all grades Above 90 and the honor roll which j nlso includes those- students with, all grades exxcept one above 901 and the fourth gi-ade above 85. !

We must not be selfish hoarders. Conversely, we must work, we must sacrifice, we must fight for the common good. And we must have faith in the ultimate victory, while putting forth all our strength to win. The beginning is ended. Now the road lies ahead. It will be rough in many places—it will go through vajleys of depression, skirt dangerous precipies, descend perhaps into -quagmires of temporary defeat—but at the end it will lead, i*we are confident, to victory and to ultimate peace for all the * eoples of all the earth. Less Talk, More Conservation So far in this war there has been too much conVERsa- tion and too little eonSERvation. We are still talking about what we^want, rather than working to save what we have. Our whole economy is in the throes of change. We can't catch up on lost time going on as usual. The tremendous resources of which we have so proudly boasted will avail us nothing unless we put them to work. But the change-over from peacetime to wartime production cannot be made thus abruptly without the day by day cooperation of each and ev- . ery one of us. ; We can survive this test as- a nation, only if we survive this test as individuals. If we plan intelligently, we can do our part in conserving and utilizing everything we possess md thus save the materials which are so vitally needed for he conductof the war. We will need all of our ingenuity and our vaunted cleverness to do this, but we can accomplish it by eliminating waste and conserving our resources, not only ' of money and materials but of time and energy. j Conservation is the tank warfare of the home front. For by conserving all our materials for a common war fund, we can plow through obstacles, and smash through barriers with | concentrated strength expended for the sole purpose of achieving Victory in the shortest possible time. _ There is a paragraph sent out by one of the government offices which we all ought to keep in front of us. Seventy gallons of gasoline will drive your car a thousand miles. Seventy gallons of gasoline will keep a fighter , plane up one hour. This is STILL a free country. Make your own choice. \ Conservation isn't so much a doing without, as it is a doing with. What we learn from conservation will be invaluable. There are reserves of inventive power in all of us upon which we can draw. There are reservoirs of good will in America which have never been tapped. When the war is over, we should have learned to consider and judge possessions and ways of life in their proper perspective. We will be able to live better, because we have learned what we can do without, what we can do for ourselves, and how we can work together, shoulder to shoulder, without regard to class or color, race or religion.

C Quiz Program Finishes Twelfth Week; Smiley on Radio Next Week Twelve weeks of Lhe radio scholarship quiz program have gone by, with the third program in tne third round coming up next week. Conducted by the faculty of Western Reserve university, with the 20 leading scholars of Stark county as the contestants, the radio programs have attracted a wide audience of persons interested in the contest. "How widespread this interest is, is evidenced by the bonds purchased each week and the number of votes cast for the various contestants. Tuesday evening Robert Smiley will appear with the other three contestants, unless he is unexpect edly kept away by illness. Thus far Smiley has received fine support from his many friends who have helped to keep him in the upper half of the group. Their continued support may find him one of the four lucky winners when the filial score- has been tot? led. In the event that one of the scholarship winners is drafted for military service when he' completes high school, as may be the case, the scholarship will be held for him until he is released, frcm serv- ice. The students who" win .'one*' of the four scholarships will be able to attend the college or university of their own choice. The remaining sixteen students will each receive a tvvo hundred dollar war bond, Fantasia of Old Familiar Carols to Be Given in Candlelight Service at Greentown The choir at the Greentown Methodist church will present its annual Christmas vesper program Sunday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock in a- candlelight service in the church auditorium.

People 'often say they want to see their home towns go ahead, and they issue complaints because the rate of progress is not so fast as they think it should be.
