There seems to be a great deal of apathy on the part of the voters towards the election for delegates to the Con- s~itutional Convention. Granted that the subject is not the most exciting and that it is difficult to understand what we are voting for, we still have an obligation as citizens to inform” ourselves and exercise our franchise. The strength of our democracy rests on each individual. Your missing vote weakens_this democracy. The Constitu- tional Conventiml will convene in September to write up a new document which will affect every one of us. Shouldn’t we be 6~n0erned about Civil rights , reapportionment, a more e~fe©tive government…?The way to get the Con- stitution you want is to send the delegates you want to Annapolis. iBeing a citizen gives you rights and duties.

Cabin John Citizen PICKLE BARREL BEAUTY PARLOR by Morris Fradin ~lh our Brigadoon-like Cabin John there’s a female version of an oldtime “Ge~_~ral Store”, famed for its cracker barrel, pickle tub and pot-bellied stowa~ ~rhere homespun wisdom was generated around continuous checker games. I~rs. Nelson, proprietress of Dorothy Helen’s Beauty Salon, at MaaArthur and 77th Street, doesn’t boast any such props.o.yet…she does serve her patrons coffee, cookies and brownies° She~also sells her customers’ honey, eggs~ apples~ anything that’s in season, with which a customer may have paid for a hairdo. Favorite recipes are swapped~ messages to friends and neighbors are left here. ‘ Distinctive pottery creations by a neighbor are sold in the salon and on occa-: sion original oil: paintings by a local artist have decorated the walls of tha beauty parlor. The shop boasts a “Nursery Nookl! complete with toys and coloring books. Here~ mothers and grannies can leave their offspring in sight while they “get~ the treatment” and learn about local births, marriages and deaths and othem~ ~ ne~s concerning Cabin Johnners in-between those earthly stages. Almost single-handed, the bubbly proprietress has canvassed for thousands of 0cllars for a new organ to be installed in the Christ I~ethodists Chunch acavoss the street, where she is also the choir mistress. She has also sold aprons, ua~3kins~ doilies, preserves and other homemade products contributed by the ~hupch-going c:lientele, to fill the church’s coffers. Customers arrive at Dorothy Helen’s in Cadillacs or jalopies from the Poto- mac Hunt area or from Bannockburn, Bethesda or Broqku~.onto Or they walk in from all over Cabin John. And they leave all aglow and “prettied up”. Sometimes a deserving teenager< without money but with a heavy date can work out the cost of a permanent by washing the windo~rs of the beauty shop. Besides being a grandmother and wife, the sparkplug of the establishment “~ has t~o fame& collegiate football stars for soms (both now reside in Texas with ~ their families) and a daughter, Hoan~ who has remained in Cabin John as the ~ife of Harvey Hook. She is an active church leader, fiddler, singer, mother confessor, friend and neighbor to all in Cabin John. She sparkles into and through almost every event that takes place in the community. Her cheery dis- position and common sense advice have helped smooth out many a rough spot in ~ha lives of~those around her. \ Each summer, the swimming pool she, her husband and sons built for them- selves: in the backyard of their home near the shop is almost i,empty of Nelsons, ‘~ but brimming ~ith neighborhood kids° ..and their dogs. One enthusiastic lady customer suguested that Dorothy Helen’s salon ba renamed the “IIappy flours Beauty Shoppe”. “It’s really fun to come here,” she said. “Like going to a party where I can’ let my hair do~rn, while having it put up.” ~d. note. This article was written several years ago. Since then Dorothy lelen’s has been “prettied up” with new furniture and a very feminine all pink interior. Otherwise, Dorothy Nelson and the atmosphere remain the same.) <, LIBRARY JOBS FOR TEEITAGERS Junior and senior high school stu- dents are eligible to apply for posi- tions of Library Page and high school~ graduates for positions as Desk Assis@ tants in the various branches of the Hontgomery County Public Libraries.

The purpose is to ooint out the problems in our comm::ity and to recommend possible courses of action in order to rectify them, I. Definition of Cabin John A. Cabin John is a to:m of homes~ and~ it should stay that way. It is already an attractive place and geographically is ideally situated. Although it is close to Uashington~ it has maintained somet ing of a “country-town” atmos- phere. Cabin John has not been and should ~ot be s::allowed up by greater subur- bia. As Cabin John continues to grow, new subdivisions should be oriented toward us and not to:Tard Carderock ~’ ” ~prlng~ or other nearby communities° Ue cannot afford the loss of the: talent and the energies of our new neighbors. Ue need them and we must do our best to convinf:e them that they need us and that they do “belong” to our commtmityo B. The Geographic boundaries of Cabin John are set forth in the constitution of the Cabin John Park Citizens’ Association and are subject to revision. II. Uhat are the major problems of Cabin John? Ao Roads and public transportation i. The through streets (HacArthur Blvd. Seven Looks Road 9 etc.) and Io~al streets (Carver Road~ etc.) are poorly paved and maintained. 2. 7me incomplete George Uashington Parhtay at the district line con- tinues to make commuting slow and hazardous. 3′. The bus service into the District of Colombia is entirely inadequate. 4. The lack of sidewalks and sat6 i~alkin G areas expose the pedestrian populationto unnecessary dangers. 5- The Recreation Center’s Parking area is too small. F, 2olice security I’.
