I know what the answer would be from anyone. "Of course we do. What are we fighting for, if not for the right to follow the democratic way of life?" But how are we proving our belief? We let democracy become endangered because we gave it only lpi service. We did not give to it the fanaticism of the Nazi, the devotion of ; the Communist, the ardor of the Fascist. If we had, democracy would have swept the world and men would, today be living in a brotherhood of nations. We say democracy is the rule of the majority. But how often have we tried to get arountl a ruling in which we did not believe? We say democracy is a way of equal opportunity for all, but how often have we, with smug satisfaction in our own group, looked upon all other groups in our country with suspicion, generalizing upon them, and condemning wholesale because of the actions of a few ? We say that democracy is built upon a belief in God— upon the right to religious freedom. Yet, all too often, we scorn our neighbor because his belief is not like ours. We do not even follow pur own creeds, though we would fight for the right to believe in them. We should remember that Germany fell when the German people forgot God. We say we believe in democracy. Now we have a chance to prove its worth, for in these days we can show once and for all whether freedom of speech and expression have inculcated a desire for true speech and expression; whether free education has taught us how to think; whether freedom of assembly has taught us how to work together in cooperation; whether freedom of enterprise has fostered individual growth; whether freedom of government has built up the capabilities of th'e self-governed;.-and whether, under free- ^fforn ^fSSgfaC^lEKfr ft&i'blossomed'forth'"irito-a migh'ty' tree that can protect us from the storm. Do we believe in democracy? Only you can give the answer. The Threat Behind Free Mail As far back as anyone can remember the postoffice department has shown an operating loss at the end of each , year. And, on several occasions, this ever-present deficit has bfeen projected by some congressmen as argument in favor of increasing postal rates. Such a move again threatens. Through heightened efficiency and economy of operation, the department in the last 10 years has trimmed its annual deficit from 112 million dollars to only 14 millions. However, there is still a deficit and as long as it-exists it'is a potential lever with which some legislators may try J,o raise postal rates. This deficit is due entirely to the free mail carried for the many government departments and agencies. The volume of this mail has multiplied five-fold in the last ten years. Last .'year the postal department estimated that if this free mail had been paid for, it would have brought 72 million dollars .into its coffers, wiping out the 14 million dollar deficit and leaving a 58 million dollar profit. Thus it is clear that the way to turn, the department's loss into gain and eliminate this threat to rates is ot revoke the free mailing privilege and require the agencies to pay postage on all mail they send out. Business mail users and private individuals as well would suffer from an increase of rates at this time. A means to avert this postal rate menace and combat any moves in that direction is passage of hte Burch Bill, (Ii. R. 2001) which provides that all government departments and bureaus be required to pay postage on all mail they send out. Active support of this bill would be in the interests of all mail users, the postoffice department, and sound governmental account ing.

Parade and Pageagt to be Held Friday Evening at 7: North Canton residents have good reason, indeed, to feel gratitude after the stoim Friday night. To the north of us, along the lake region, the tornado wreaked havoc. To the south, in the city of Canton, the twister broke loose in streaks, teaiing down houses and wrecking factories. Many were injured and at least one life- was lost. Mere than 300 people in Canton to day are homeless. With the shortage of houses and wai needs call ing for priorities in building, it may be difficult to replace these homes. Even where tornado insurance is sufficient to care for reconstruction, it may be months before a family can again be located in its own home.

Metzger of Orrville, O., and two Keeping Our Promise People who still doubt that the war is being fought for the supremacy of an ideal ought to regard thoughtfully what is taking place in' Sicily where the Allied military forces are moving in. / . Under the joint auspices of the American and British governments, we are establishing military government to be sure, but in no sense for the purpose of dominating or suppressing the people. One of the first acts of General Alexander, designated by General Eisenhower as military governor of Sicily, was to tell the native population that the Allies planned "to deliver the people from the Fascist regime which led them into war and to restore Italy as a free nation." That sounds very much like the democratic ideal—and even more so when we learn that, as a matter of practical application, it means freedom of religious worship, the repeal of anti-Semitic laws and all other measures based on racial and religious discrimination, and, insofar as military .safety permits, the recognition of freedom of -speech and freedom of the press. Fascist leaders are being removed from office, the Fascist militia and the Fascist youth organizations disbanded. In short, fascism is being abolished in Sicily. As we promised, the fascist tyranny is being destroyed. What-we are doing in Sicily represents the "ideals which we have always held before ourselves in America, and it is ^exceedingly gratifying to know that, in occupying enemy ter- ritory,, we -ar*l/fulfilling our pledge to set the people free in accordance'withythi:;'avowed "purposes for which we have said, that.we^ejfijtf^ ~ - ^ *-" * '" "-'*^v*$S,.-»S.^^^^&S.*CS&.-: was made immediately.

RESTAURANT FIRE CAUSED BY STOVE The volunteer fire department received a call Monday morning about 9 o'clock to the restaurant located at the corner of Main ancl Maple streets, where a faulty stove had caused fire. Some damage was done both to equipment and the building. Both were fully covered by .insurance. It was necessary for the restaurant to remain closed through-out the day, although an attempt was made to prevent people going hungry- by serving pie and coffee.

'$$$??. What began as a hobby has become a miniature enterprise for Mrs. D. O. Corner, Ohio ave., who recently opened a shop in her home devoted to articles made from gourds. About two years -ago Mrs. Corner became interested in the culture of gourds and the handicraft which can be produced from them. Her interest in gourds led her to become an active member of the Gourd Society of America, Inc., in which she has been doing research work in advanced aourd growing. A recent venture of Mrs. Corner has been the combination of "gourd talks" with interpretative piano- accordion music, which she presents before garden clubs and kindred organizations. She is booked, for a talk before the North Canton Woman's club on the first of November and has several numbers booked for.Bexley and vicinity of-Columbus. ' Mrs. Corner calls her talk "The Mjagic Gourd Vine," and in it she combines her talk and music in such a way as to present a true artist's, program. She is well known as a piano-accordion player ' and has ability in working-out original programs. The present,, lecture .which;-she gives includes ahumher -LJaaa^Lj "*Y. r . .- --"' - -a- -..c-w z- ,L -»r*'. I which she calls "Casablanca." This I is a patriotic number and in it Mrs. Corner combines the old and new music of the United Nations. The music of the czarist regime is used in combination -with the new Volga Boat Song, the music of old and new China is also, used, and the Marsellaise " combines with newer music of- France. But it is in the American part of the program that the true theme of "Casablanca" appears. Patriotic music ^s used in a medley that represents the American trend of thought the last two years. Mrs. Corner was formerly connected with the Redpath Lyceum. Bureau. She has a record of. mow than- 1800 -concerts to her- credit and appeared on lyceum courses with such artists as Edgar Bergen and "Charley." She not only appeared on the programs but also managed the companies. At present she is doing her own -booking. Prior to-going into lyceum and Chautauqua work, Mrs. Corner taught dramatics in Columbus schools. ' . Mrs. Comer is a, real gourd enthusiast. She. not .only, raises the gourds-but aiso-. does1.much ot the designing and'painting as well. She* has found helpful advice -from] such authorities as Dr. Liberty- Hyde Bailey, the dean of living plantsmen. Dr. Frank G. Speck, professor of anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, and Sterling Pool, president of the Gourd Society of America. Mrs. Corner felt honoied to have a photo appear on the cover of the April issue of "Gourd Seed," the official magazine of the national society. An outstanding feature of the photo was a picture, within the picture, entitled "A Study of Gourds," which is the work of Miss Rena Pottorf. Those who visited-the. Little Art Gallery showing cf gourds, cactus and Mexican art last November will remember this oil painting which beautifully portrays a bowl of choice gourds with a sprig of vine in the background, from the Corners' garden. Gourd-craft is an art which seems sweeping the country tho last several years. Gourds, it seems, lend themselves admirably to almost any use and can be decorated artistically in many ways.
