Editor Yearly Subscription Rates Sonoma Lake and Mendicino Counties 9.00 Elsewhere in the United States 9.50 Editorial Time to act on lessons learned The experience of recent weeks in Iran and Afghanistan suggests the timeliness of a line in Milton's "Paradise Lost": "Awake arise, or be forever fallen." What is happening in those countries, is teaching our leaders a lesson about the need to keep our guard up against international outlaws. If the lessons of Iran and Afghanistan prove transitory, forgotten with the first hint of con- ciliation from Moscow, then America will inescapably face perils unmatched since the struggle for survival against the Nazis. The most obvious lesson is that the United. States must rebuild the strength - material and moral - that is indispensable to protect our most v,fal interests and to defend the values that lie at the heart of our free society. America lacks the military capabilities to cope with the challenges we already face, not to mention the far graver challenges that we are certain to confront down the road. The Soviet Union clearly, no longer feels that the risks of sending its armed forces outside its frontiers are prohibitive. America's nuclear power no longer serves 1o deter such expansionist adventures now that Russia has attained parity with the U.S. Nor are the Soviets impressed by the danger of confrontation with American conventional forces except in Europe and Korea, where powerful U.S. contingents stand guard. They know that a decade of neglect and psychological retreat has savagely damaged this country's capacity to respond to challenges, while Russia has utilized the decade to build armed forces to crush challenges to Moscow's interests and to expand Russia's influence throughout the world. Nothing could have brought home the lesson of the changed posture of the two super-powers more than the response of each to the latest tests. Russia's rulers, like the mobs in Iran who oc- cupied the U.S. Embassy, doubtless were em- boldened by an impression of a weakened and irresolute America. . For the Soviets now to seize "the land" next to their own would give them control of the world's greatest source of oil - a disaster for the West and rerhaps a trigger for World War III. If we are to avert this ultimate catastrophe, It is imperative that we as a nation act on lessons that have emerged from Iran and Afghanistan. In practical terms, this means giving the highest priority to the rebuilding of America's power. The world's reaction to events in Iran and Afghanistan should remind us that friends cannot be bought, that allies are good allies only so long as their most vital interests are at stake. Above all, we should have learned from these events that the United States must have the strength, the resolve and the courage to look after its own interests beca.use, in a showdown, it will be American power that will determine the destiny of free men. ,A Challenge "Big Orange" contest Editor: Tom Johnson, President Healdsburg Chamber of Commerce 217 Healdsburg Avenue Healdsburg, Calif. 95448 Dear Mr. Johnson: On behalf of the Cloverdale Letters to the editor Chamber Of Commerce we hands of your president. cordially invite your challenge to the "Big Orange" contest to be held during the Citrus Fair Parade on February 16th.

Shown (left to right) Kahn critical of Southern Calif. water district Sonoma County Supervisor Brian Kahn, sharply critical of Southern California's Metropolitan Water District at the January meeting of the Eel-Russian River Com- mission in Ukiah,.questioned the District's intent to adopt meaningful consei'vation measures to help meet future water needs.

"I get the feeling you think that you can just keep building mammoth new projects to tap the North's water and have the public pick up the tab," Kahn told Clemmer. Kahn pressed the MWD spokesman for evidence of the District's serious intent to support water conservation and responsible land use planning. Clemmer responded that conservation comprises less than two tenths of one percent (.2) of the MWD's budget. On the question of land-use planning, Clemmer said that the MWD "does not have an active anti-growth policy." The answer drew a sharp rebuke from Hdm, who said that the issue is not "growth, norowth," but instead, "the issue is whether Southern California is serious about doing the best it can with limited resources, or if it takes the position that they don't need to worry about it."

Opponents insist that the canal would provide the "plumbing" necessary to divert vital North Coast water to the south. Clemmer's declaration that the California Department of Fish and Game "st=ongly supports" the canal was contradicted by a DFG staff biologist at the hearing, Who said the Department's support for the project was at "best "limited," calling it simply the "least destructive -of several bad aRernaUves." Following 4be neeting, Kahn expressed doubt over Ciemmer's assurance that North Coast rivers were not the ultimate target of Southern California water planners. "Mr. Clemmer says the people talking about dams on the North Coast are politicians, not water engineers," Kahn said. "Well, the people jn Sacramento making the decisions on this canal are politicians, not engineers." Given dominance of Southern California over the State's politics, Kahn said, "We may need more support than just lip service from our federal representative to prevent North Coast rivers from becoming plumbing for Southern Clifornia swim- ming pools." are Cindy Humphry, secretary-treasurer d Center.
