The new holiday replaced "Constitution Day" and "1 am an American Day." "Con- stitution Day" had also been observed on Sep- tember 17, the anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution in 1787. The first time the day was noted with any degreeof enthusiasm was on its centennial date in 1887 when a three-day observance was held. As the century turned, the celebration became more popular, especially in Philadelphia, where the Constitution was signed. The National Security League was founded in 1914 to foster observance of the holiday and loyalty to the democratic principles which it represented. "1 am an American Day" was observed on the third Sunday in May. The purposeof "i am an American Day" was to publicly recognize those who, "by coming of age or naturalization, have attained the status of citizenship." It is said that the idea for the day originated at the national convention of the American Legion in Boston in 1940. Of additional importance was the growing fame of the "Manitowoc Plan for Citizens in Training and Induction of New Voters," in 1939, to prepare new voters for the responsibilities of good citizenship. Until the National Conference of Citizenship Day, and in some places Citizenship Week, it was jointly sponsored in Washington, D.C., by the Justice Department and the United States Offices of Education. Patriotic and civic groups throughout the country support the aims of the day. Today, with voting rights extended to include eighteen year olds, some who are our students in the Cloverdale and Geyserville High Schools, this Citizenship =Day is, more than ever, truly a day to remind us of our rights and privileges guaranteed by the Constitution--and of our responsibilities to our nation, as well. One of our most important responsibilities is for all citizens, who are of voting age, to go to the polls on November 4, and to cast their votes for the people of their choice. Another is for older citizens to set examples to young, new voters, to let them know how precious our rights as citizens of this, the greatest of all countries. As you no doubt have been reading, turnouts of voters at recent elections have been extremely low. People have become far too apathetic. We urge every person of voting age to make a real effort to change this-at least in our com- munities of Cloverdae and Geyserville. Let's be down at the polls on election day. The last day to register to vote in the November 4 general election is October 6. Clausen willing to debate Bork Don Emerson, District Chairman for the Committee to Re-Elect Congressman Don Clausen, Ioday said that Congressman Ciausen would be happy to participate in a "meaningful" debate with Norma Bork, although Emerson expressed con- siderable doubt that Mrs. Bork's proposal to debate the issues was serious. "l have Io consider the superficial way in which she issued the inviliation for debate," Emerson said. "Considering lhe lwo distorlions in her press release, I have to believe that she is more interested in free publicity than in any serious 3 discussion of the difficult issues facing us today," Emerson continued. Mrs. Bork's press release said thai she had delivered a challenge tot debate Congressman Clausen on Monday, September 8. In fact, the challenge was not delivered until the next day. Bork was also quoted as saying, "...it will be the first time in 18 years he will share a speaking engagement with a challenger." In fact, Clausen has debated and made joint appearances with his challengers a number of times over the years. ConUnued ea page IS Approximately SO0 supporters honored Congressman.

We had to bring in extra chairs and people were still standing out in the hallway trying to listen to what was going on. It was a fantastic turnout and plans were loosely formulated in Cranston regards to saving the depot for future use as a museum, Chamber of Commerce Of- flee, meeting hall type of building. There was a big cross-section of our population there, some with interesting commePts. It was really interesting to listen to Mr. D. Peterson, the man responsible for moving the gigantic Santa Rosa Post Office. He had been asked by some interested citizens to come up to Cloverdale and look over the depot building to see if, indeed, it could be his field, moved with reasonable ef- many old fort. He described the square having nails construction, the cross- for man beaming and other old The construction methods used in corned building the depot and said putting that it could, indeed, be how they moved with a minimum of venerable effort by any good building will move= moving company. He was anew surprised the upper con- struction showed as little no cost to damage as it does, con- as the sidering the age of the designated building. He is an expert in condems USSR clampdown on Jews Senator Alan Cranston (D., Calif.) is asking fellow Senators to join him in urging formal U.S. condemnation of the Soviet Union for a new clampdown on Soviet Jews. Cranston said Soviet of- ficials have cut the rate of Jewish emigration nearly in half and have stepped up anti- Semitic compaigns and the harassment of dissidents. Cranston said the emigration figure for August was the lowest for any month Since the Soviet Union signed the Helsinki accords in August, 1975, pledging to respect human rights and polilical freedom, including emigration rights. Cranston is seeking Senate signatures on a letter asking President Carter to publicly condemn the Soviets and to instruct lhe U.S. delegation to raise the issue at the up- coming Madrid conference to review the Helsinki agreements. The agenda for the con- ference, which opens November II, will be set at a preparatory session in Window Fashions by Marylynn Amann and Jim Vlasak Brother S*ster team Madrid September 9. Senators Rudy Boschwitz t R., Minn.) and Claiborne Pell (D.. R.I.) have joined Cranston in seeking Senate signatures. "The leadership of the Soviet Union must know that the U.S. will not shrink from its commitment to the principles of the Helsinki accords," the proposed letter says. "A White House statement would do much to focus world attention on the Soviet's flagrant abuse of in- ternational human rights charters...tand) renew the spirits of those at the forefront of the effort to protect the emigration rights of Soviet Jews in these days of darkness." Cranston said that ac- cording to the National Conference on Soviet Jewry, only 17,062 Soviet Jews were permitted to emigrate fdr the first eight months of this year compared to 33,5?5 for a like period last year. Only 7?0 Jews were allowed to leave the country last ABSENCE OF COLOR If you have followed this column, you know we said color, or the absence of color, has a tremendous effect in your window dressings simply due to the volume of area covered. Let's talk about the absence of color. White is most popularly ihought of when you say "absence of color." Off-white drapes on an off-white wall is a popular way to drape. This is especially fine when you use an open weave fabric for a view window or a large expanse of glass. This reduces allenlion Io the window itself while allowing you to see out in the daytime without people seeing in. mother absence of color situation is a neutral such as slraw or nalural.
