They say it cannot function properly and are all for taking it apart,"and putting it together again according to some plan of their own. They speak of it as though it were but the blue print of some intricate machine which,' cloeklike precision, should turn out articles alike to the shading of a hair. :tl Democracy is Jiot a blue print or a machine—not even a machine in the political sense. Democracy is the way of re- yblution by evolution. It is the only way toi overcome slavery pf want, the. slavery of ignorance, the slavery of discrimination—whether it be of class, creed or color. In it lies the solution to all of our problems, for democracy depends upon the wili of the people—which is but the will and the; courage of many individuals banded: together. i' Democracy is the way of action. It is not static. Its-growth is slow but never ceasing. It is not based upon tradition alane. Semocracy is the way to do the things that must be done. It ^jiust always move ahead. Democracy is the traffic rule of _Jfe. It adapts itself to the exigencies of the road. Its green and red lights are spaced on the traffic changes of the time. ^Democracy is. the ivay of justice. Racial or religious discrimination, class hatreds, group's pressure are all breaches bf democracy, are'flaws in the road that must and will corrected in the course of time. The way may be long and hard but the democratic way will prevail in the end! "' Democracy being a way and not an arbitrary law has flaws •i-many of them. But those mistakes are man made aijd can lie corrected by the will of the majority. What rights the majority have, can be retained by them only if they allo^ the same rights to the minority. Because the majority wants free speech, they must allow it to the minority. The right of argument and conversion is open to the minority and majority alike. ;' Democracy like Christianity is a way that must be followed to be proven. Democracy is a way of life -which stems fkm the individual. It is the method by which he learns to liVe amicably with his neighbor. It is the formula which civilized and free people have found most useful in working out ,the great problem of human relations. the Right To Work --' Fair rules and-fair-play applied to everybody constitute the only solution td the 'nation's labor troubles.' Specific application of those rules would remove the restrictions that now shackle the worker's freedom to work. ¥ The right to work- should' no more be decided on a partisan fesis than should.the. determination to go. to war when the nation is menaced, by aggression from outside. *' Curtailment of the right to work through monopolistic Wower is. the mp-st. serious threat to our liberties today.

The city of Akron is fighting the move. American Airlines, in its brief, declared it will "retire all DG-3 (two-engine) equipment by the end of 1947 or early 1948 and replace the DC-3's with four engine equipment. The minimum CAB airport requirements for that type of aircraft cannot be met at Akron airport. Therefore the brief continued, it will be necessary to cease operations at the Akron field. Other air-, lines also have indicated they are anxious to withdraw their two-engine planes from service and plan to do so as soon as possible. Four-engine transport craft can land and take off at Akron city airport but not with a full load, airline officials claim. They maintain that, to use the field, four- 'engine planes would have to operate at half the normal load, which would be unprofitable. The three other airlines and the city of Akron also filed briefs last week. A decision by the board ia expected late next month. Akron based its chief arguments against the- move on the grounds that the new airport"is located sev-' eral miles farther from its downtown area than the municipal field. Akron will provide a major share of airline's traffic and the field should be located closer to it, city officials contended. Mayor Charles Slusser of Akron brought out in the hearing that the city intends to spend more than a million dollars to improve the field and lessen the glide angle, malting the municipal field safer. On Saturday, May io, Mr! Charles H. Schafer of the Schafer-Messerly Drug Company of North Canton was visited by Jiis employer of thirty-eight years ago, Mr. J. W. Dysle of M'arietta, Ohio. Nostalgic memories were in order , as Mr. Schafer showed his former employer abou-t the stored Many modern improvements - in the-- store were enjoyed by Mr. Dysle such as the new sectional file system for storing pharmaceutical products. In the days when Mr. Schafer worked in the old time'store all such products were kept in fancy bottles on the shelves that lined the prescription department of Mr. Dysle's store. In a recent article in The Marietta Ohio Times, Mr. Owen C. Devine, another former employee of Mr. Dysle's, recalled how he and Mr. Schafer worked from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p. m. for $2.00 a week. Also how they would strip to the waist and crank the ice cream maker for ^thirty minutes for a reward of a (generous serving of home made ice cream. \JIr. Schafer [worked for Mr. Dysle for approximately five years. He then attended The Chicago School of Pharmacy for four years and returned to Mr. Dysle's employment for seven more years before coming to Canton, to work in the old Roth and Hug Drug Store. When a decision was made to move one of their stores to North Canton/which was-then, called New 'Berlin, they->brough*fc Mr.. Schafer who was -manager of one of their Canton stores with. them. The store was later purchased from Roth and Hug by Charles Schafer and Max Messerly who formed The Schafer- Messerly Drug Company that has served. North Caraton- for the past thirty-five years. - Mr. Dysle, who-Recently retired from the drug business,.. was re7 turning from the Ohio,'State Pharmaceutical Association' Convention ,wMch-was-held-cin~Aixdirlast-*week-. Hoover Go, Offers I ii Cent Basse The Hoover Company last Friday offered a lli/s cent-an- hour wage increase in negotiations with the United E'lec- tricial, Eadio and Machine Workers of America. Harry L. Bradley, local president, said the ..wage increase offer was made dependent upon union acceptance of a number of other company proposals. He said the union was to discuss the offer with management representatives at another meeting.1 The negotations involve 2,100 factory employes. The union has filed a 30-day strike notice. Two of the issues in dispute in the management unit proposal are a proposed change in -the layoff list and the reclassification of certain men's jobs to women's jobs at a lower rate, Mr. Bradley said. In.f commenting on the proposed layoff list change, a Hoover spokesman said his concern "proposes certain concessions in favor of longer-service employes in return for certain revisions covering the hiring of former war workers. "The company proposes only to assign women to jobs where a substantial change in methods of doing the job have' reduced the skill and physical requirements to well within the capacity of women employes," he said. Mr. Bradley reported >the union plans to report on negotiations at a mass meeting next week and that Conciliator Robert E. Burns of Cleveltvnd has been assigned by the U.;S. Department of Labor to the dispute. The union's 30-day strike intent notice expires May 29.
