    November, 1964, Dutch East Indies, shore leave.

    Why do they need the clapper? Can't they just get up and turn the light on and off like everyone else?

    The Senate made a wise decision. The Clapper is an excellent device for seniors to turn off lamps, radios and other devices. I am glad the Clapper was approved.
