High temperatures Wednesday were from the mid 60s to lower 80s near the coast to 104 at Death Valley. The San Francisco Bay area readings Wednesday were in the warm 80s and lower 90s, but won't be as warm today and Friday because of sea breezes up to 25 miles an hour pushing fog and low clouds into the bay area.

Rain and thunderstorms were scattered across the eastern Great Lakesjregion to northwest Pennsylvania and from the mid-Atlantic states to southern New England.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Constitution, "the single greatest work of government the world has ever seen," is 200 years old today and its hometown has laid on a bell- ringing, flag-waving, star-spangled bicentennial birthday party. "I promise you, the people are in for a terrific, terrific time," said Willard Rouse m, chairman of the organizing We The People 200 committee. This day of superlatives was scheduled to begin with a $35 million, six-hour parade featuring 30 floats, more than 20,000 marchers and 1,500 white doves fluttering skyward. About 750,000 spectators were expected, including President Reagan. Reagan, who led the nation's 68 million U.S. schoolchildren Wednesday in a televised .Pledge of Allegiance, was scheduled to address the nation and ring the Centennial Bell atop Independence Hall. Also beginning was a four-day picnic along the Delaware River for about 1 million people. This afternoon, former U.S. Chief Justice Warren Burger was to _ ring the Centennial bell, cast from COUPICM rOVGrSQS Revolutionary and Civil war can- . . non and modeled on the long-silent 01311 DGrS - 3QBII1 Liberty Bell. r ° His signal at 4 p.m., the hour the Constitution was signed 200 years ago, will trigger 200 seconds of bell-ringing around the globe for the world s oldest constitution, what Burger called "the single greatest work of government the world has ever seen." That work, accomplished over four hot summer months, concluded with the signing of the Constitution by 39 of the 55 delegates who shaped it It became law nine months later when New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify it. In another ceremony today, 214 new Americans from 41 countries were scheduled to take the oath of citizenship before another American institution, a baseball game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs. Suong Dang, a 29-year-old Vietnamese refugee who came to the United States in 1981, was among those to be sworn in as a 247- by 122-foot hand-held U.S. flag was unfurled on the field for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Now, I'm an American," Redwood Valley marks Bicentennial Redwood Valley School eighth-grader Jake Klnney talks to fellow students about the creed created by the founders of the Constitution during the sc ^oi's Bicentennial Celebration ceremonies Wednesday. The event also Included a flag-rising and television viewing of national ceremonies. I t • o c E The Ukiah City Council has continued its habit of reversing decisions by the Planning Commission, this time approving an auto repair operation the commission rejected as "inappropriate." The Planning Commission on Aug. 26 denied a use permit requested by Robert Sandehn and Thomas Parducci to operate a repair business at the abandonded gas station at 635 S. State, immediately north of the Safeway supermarket. However, none of the adjacent landowners or residents objected to the use permit application, a fact that swayed the council, as did the historical use of the building for auto related uses. In other planning matters, the council: .. Low Thursday morning YELLOWSTONE Mont. — 19 at WEST announced plans to buy back 12 million of its shares through a tender offer.
