It celebrates, of course, the birthday of our nation - that July 4, 1766, when John Hancock, president of the Con- tinental Congress, and Charles Thomson, secretary, signed the Declaration of In- dependence. Observance of the day nationally spread slowly, just as the realization of our sovereignty both internally and around the world took time. But by the early 1800's the Fourth had reached a peak of popularity which it continued to enjoy during much of the century. It was celebrated with a vigor, and at times, almost overwhelming pride. Theron Matcalf in an 1810 Fourth of July speech at Dedham, Mass., claimed that: "No nation can examlne Its early history with so little abatement of satisfaction and pride as our own. W9 are not obliged to resort to fable for our origin, nor to conjecture for our progress. The whole is spread before us in unfaded colors. Nor are we disgusted with a picture of our former barbarism and cruelty. Our ancestors were not outcasts from civilization or society - they sought these shores, not as a refuge from punishment, but as an asylum for liberty, u Nowadays there are many complaints that the day has lost its meaning. Perhaps for some it has, but in any case, new ways of involving ourselves in the holdiay are always important. We need to understand and feel a permanent sense of con- tinuity, as a nation and as a people, from the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the present day when liberty remains the goal of so many of theworld's people. Let's renew the spirit that our forefathers had in 1776. Let's regain the courage, hope and love that we may become again the nation we used to be. ::::::::::;:;:::::::.:::::::::::.::.::::::::;::::::::::::::::::::::::::.::.::::::::::::.:.::..::.::::::::.:::::..:.:;:::::::.::;::.::::.:::..::::.:.:::::::::.::;::::::::::....::::::.:.:::...:::::.::.::.::.:......: Letters to the editor Strong words Editor: Regarding the Mystery Merchants Hunt on June 21, 1900. According to the rules, nohing was .stated that. more than one in a family could not enter the so.called "Contest". My. wife went out and completed all the clues available (2 shops were not even open). Then I decided to try it, having my wife drive me around. Having completed the contest, I turned in an en- velope, not a word was said to me then about entering or not entering. Later I was told by the people who ran this affair, I cheated and was disqualified even though I had the best time. Seems to me these are strong words and I object. If this type of contest is attempted again, I would only hope the rules are specified and printed in black and white and run with a bit more dignity and not be so secretive about the winners. H.B. Spence Cloverdale Hardly Justified" Editor: President Carter has now more delegates than he needs in order to get the democratic party nomination. Yet, ac- cording to what we have been reading and hearing in the news, he can not be 100 percent rowe to be nominated. Why, because some or many of his delegates may not vote for him at the first ballot of the convention to be held in August. Convention delegates are supposed to represent the candidate preference of the people who voted. Otherwise, why do they accept to be delegates of a certain can- didate if they think that some other one would make a better president? And if they change their minds overnight about who is better, they may or may not be sincere, but they leave themselves open to be suspected that they do it for some kind of personal gain. This legal right of ,convention delegates to change their vote preference at the first ballot can hardly be justified by any democratic or moral prin- ciple. Sincerely Jose H.
