Com- Philip a recent the Caucus. to act ur own con - ti :ely added. jobe PM as break The In addition, he asked that the Secretary apply the TPM to specialty steel products. In a letter to Klutznick, Clausen com- mented, "Specialty steel is .vital to our domestic economy and must be provided the same. fair- market treatment that the basic steel industry is granted. Any relief provided basic steel would be more than offset by in- creased dumping of specialty steel and thereby adversely impact the entire TPM program." Stressing the need for action, he noted that, "Foreign specialty steel producers are offering their products now in the U.S. at prices below those currently being offered by U.S. producers. Some products are being offered below the cost of production." Clausen pointed to the advantages enjoyed by foreign producers of cheap labor,, government sub- sidles and equipment which is often more modern than is found in the US as reasons for the ability of foreign firms to underprice American products. "Unless trigger prices are implemented, we have every reason to believe that dumped and subsidized imports will continue to enter the U.S. market, and injure the domestic in- dustry. I hope the Ad- ministration will act quickly in response to my urgent request," he concluded.

However, this week's joke is a virgin, new to Cloverdale, I am sure, and it is not everyday that one has the opportunity to introduce into a community for the very first time, a fresh joke. First, I must explain the source. This was related to me by a gentleman who lives in Carmel and works as head bartender at the Monterey Peninsula Country Club. To him, a funny story is like fine wine. He is very selective when dabbling in "storytelling culture." He probably turns down 25 jokes a day because they simply do not qualify in taste. These are sold o other joke brokers who probably sell them to someone else. Not only is my friend selective about circulating material, but he is also particular about the receiving audience. Therefore, it was a compliment indeed that he would call long distance at 8 a.m. in the morning to share one of his latest collector items. If you are not a "Shaggy-dog-joke- appreciator," I urge you to skip the next paragraph. ilERE IS MY JOKE: (See, it's mine now because I inherited it.) There once was an Indian Chief and hisname was  Shortcake. He was loved by all and smoked many a peacepipe. He was one of the early instigators to bring peaceful relationships to the old west. Well, he died. The white folks held him in such high esteem that the governor sent a committee out to the reservation to pay their respects to his squaw. "Because everyone loved Shortcake," said the spokesman. "we would like to bury him with full military honors." But the wife said, "No, squaw bury Shortcake." ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER SPACE: A little bird told me (actually it was a dove) that found Gerry and Ed Vlasak celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in Cloverdale, and congratulations all around. And in other society news, the folks in Cloverdale never cease to amaze me...We have everything from Symphony buffs to rock collectors living around these parts. Last week we reported on David Watchers from Cloverdale who watched the opening night of the san Francisco Sym- phony on Channel 9 with more than a passing interest. Now I've learned that there were also Debbie Watchers among us who may have seen Debbie Kramer in the group which played during the champagne reception opening the gala evening. Debbie, one of the many fine musicians turned out by the excellent Music Dept. at Cioverdale High School under the direclion of the now famous Mr, C. performs with several organizations in the Bay Area. Last Monday, Debbie played wih lhe San Francisco Concert Orchestra at Symphony Hall and she also plays with the Fremont Philharmonic Orchestra. SIDELIGHTS: Incidentally, Mr. C caught the opening per- formance after being alerted by one proud father. AND if you wondered about the big white boxes being carried into the hall by members of the audience, no they were not fancy doggie bags filled with left over hors- d'ouevres, they were Tiffany Bowls given as gifts to those who bad donated $1,000 or more to build the place. Oh, if you happened to use the little girl's room that night, you were presented with gift perfume. Now t ' hat s class? AND TllERE'S MORE' Mrs. Davies, the lady who made the new symphony hall all happen with her donation of $5 million, visited Cloverdale last week as a guest at the ranch of Dr. Edmund Morrisey. While here, she was taken on a first class lout of Warm Springs Dam by local friends including Don Hulbert, Chauffeur de' elegance? LOVE *'CONCOURBE" ALL Over 30 horseless carriages carriages stopped in Cloverdale for a coffee and donut break along their route to the coast. The Chamber of Commerce sponsored the visit which sparked the interest of many passing by. Harold Waiters was in charge of the tour and Armand Shaduck, long-time antique car buff, helped host many of his old friends, and made them feel welcome in Cloverdale. Many of the varticipants expressed interest in entering the Citrus Fair Parade next year, and, of course, the Chamber likes to hear that? Our Parade Committee is already searching for new and different kinds of entries for this year's parade. If you can help, please call with ideas and we will follow through. CENSUS-SHIP: According to the Federal Census Bureau, it would appear that Cloverdale has 70 empty haunted houses...except the City believes they are haunted with human ghosts. While the wheels of bureaucracy grind out the stats on such items as the vacancy rate (70 units or 4.2 per- cent) the folks around city hall sit with expressions of utter amazement...knowing full well, to the best of their knowledge, there are only six or seven units at the most, on any given day which might be declared vacant. The Chamber office alone sees an average of one family a day looking for housing in Cloverdale, and a check with any real estate office in town will confirm the fact that statistics lie. AND IAGINE: How your local Chamber of (ommerce feels after, through years of painstaking work to establish Con- trolled Growth in the community, to find out that the census bureau finds over 100 less people in the population figure that we are currently using. The bureau finally adjusted the figure to population 3905 inside of the city limits, but those of us who follow such things know that this is still 42 people short. Okay, you 42 people, where are you hiding? Whoever is absent, please raise your hand. SIGNS OF THE TIMES: This brings me around to one of my pet peeves, born from a conversation with one of our sister city friends who has been visiting Cloverdale, Ca, for ten years. Don't you folks believe in sex?" she asked. "Yes, I think so," I answered guardedly. "Well," she continued, "your population sign at the north end of town has read 3206 for the past ten years." Since that conversation, I have been on a one woman cam- paign to get the sign changed, but keep getting the run around. Can you help me? It should read 3960 as of this morning. (No graffiti please.) INTO OCTOBER: There is much going on this week, so if you wu! just turn over a new leaf on the autumn calendar we'll get on with it. Last weekend, grape stompers from all over the county me' at the Sonoma County Fairgrotmda during the Harvest fair to compete for the world championship. Cloverdale was represented on Sunday in the big Celeb. stompout and Mayor Jack Domenichelli and Dale Peterson did the honors as our reps. Saturday, was the famous Hysterical Flea Market. Also, on Saturday the Friends of the Library put on a book sale at the Washington School multipurpose room across from the flea market from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. SOUPS ON TIME: There are still a limited number of reservations available for the Chamber of Commerce Membership meeting to be held "in the vault" at ISC tonight. The dinner is to be catered by Allen of Asti and "Soups on Time" is at 7 p.m. EXIT: I can't leave without making a comment on the ex- cellent BBQ put on by the Lions Club, family night Thursday, September 25.
