Census Enumerators
They Have Rights Which Must Be Respected
In the month of June Uncle Sam's enumerators will call on you. Under a recent ruling they shall have the right of admission to every dwelling and to every manufacturing establishment for the purpose of obtaining information for the census office. They have the right to put every question contained in the schedules and to obtain answers to each and all of them. They are cautioned not to obtrude needlessly on any person and it is of the utmost importance that

the manner of the enumerator should under all circumstances be courteous and conciliatory. Should objection be made to answering any of the questions a note of it should be made and the fact reported to the supervisors. Enumerators must not accept any statement which they believe to be false, and they are charged not to communicate to any person any information obtained in the discharge of their duties. Enumerators are cautioned not to show their schedules or in any way give information bearing on them. In canvassing a district enumerators have not the right to omit any dwelling, establishment or residence nor to entcr on a schedule of population the name of any fictitious person or persons; and for a willful falsification of the returns, a fine not exceeding $5000 and imprisonment not exceeding two years may result. In the enumeration of the population no enumerator will be permitted to act as a canvasser for papers or the sale of any article, nor are enumerators allowed to delegate their authority to any other person. On entering a house they are to transact their business in the quickest possible time and leave the premises. All of the duties of enumerators are to be performed under the direction and control of the supervisor of the district, who has authority to discharge them for negligence, inefficiency, incompetency or misconduct of any sort. The department cautions the avoidance, as far as possible, the use of interpreters and says no additional expense should be incurred except where it is absolutely necessary.

Livermore Holds Own With HerNeighbors
Population statistics of a number of the smaller towns in the state have been given out by the Census Bureau during the past week. While Livermore has made no startling gain in the past ten years, its growth has been substantial and its percentage of gain is equal to most of the towns of its class as will be seen from comparison of the following list:

1910 1900
Hayward 2746 1965
Hayward 3093 1965
San Leandro 3471 2253
Livermore 2030 1493
Pleasanton 1254 1100
Emeryville 2613 1016
Martinez 2115 1380
Gilroy 2437 1820
Los Gatos 2232 1915
Santa Clara 4348 3650
San Mateo 4384 1832
Redwood 2442 1653

The appearance of Hayward twice in the above table is due
to the first census having been unsatisfactory to the Super-
visor of Census for the district and a new enumeration
taken.

It's That Time Again!

We are looking for donations for this year's LHG AUCTION. The auction will be upon us soon. Donations of goods and services are greatly appreciated. All usable iterns will be accepted except books, clothing and furniture (unless considered antique). Unfortunately, computer equipment not working for more than 4 years also cannot be accepted. Time to clean out those garages and let us help you dispose of those items that need a new home. Phone 449-9927 for pickup. This has been a fun event for everyone and we look forward to seeing you at the auction!
