On this date in the SCV: In 1941, all local 21-year-olds were ordered to register for the draft.

Today’s Highlight in History: On June 26, 1912, Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 9 in D major premiered in Vienna more than a year after the composer’s death; Bruno Walter conducted the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Ten years ago: The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional because the words “under God” had been inserted by Congress in 1954.

The Group of Eight nations, meeting in Canada, announced that Russia would be made a full-fledged member of the elite group. Chinese basketball star Yao Ming was selected first overall by the Houston Rockets in the NBA draft.

Five years ago: Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, appearing on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” got into a verbal fracas with Elizabeth Edwards, who had called into the program to ask Coulter to stop making personal attacks on her husband, Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards.
