New Selections in the Library Have you ever missed a movie that you wanted to see? Are you looking for something exciting to do in your spare time? Or do you just enjoy a good book? These are all good reasons to stop into the library and look over the many books and magazines at your disposal. Also, there are many new books that just arrived and will soon be on the shelves. First of the new books is "Bless the Beasts and Children," by Glendon Swarthout. It was once a movie. The book dwells on nine boys, who were cast-away offsprings of parents, and their adventures at a summer camp. "Lisa, Bright and Dark," by John Neufeld is another paperback soon to be available. It was an NBC-TV "Hallmark Hall of Fame" drama. The novel tells of a young girl's journey toward the strange world of madness. Ann Head is the author of "Mr. and Mrs. Bo Jo Jones." The story involves a 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy who are thrown together in a marriage. Joining the number "one" bestsellers in the library are "Alive" and "Centennial." "Alive" deals with a plane crash in the Andes and its survivors. Those who are bookworms or those who aren't will enjoy reading all 1086 pages of "Centennial." James Michener writes about the U.S. land and people, and the adventures and experiences of our legendary west. "Fog" by Mildred Lee was selected for Best Books of the year by three separate organizations, the New York Times being one.

Staff Advisor: Miss Farrell ' No Accurate Record on How Many Elderly Persons in Iowa By Robert Kolarik (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES - Finding lowans over age 60 is a lot easier than finding the total number of them. In 1976, the most accurate accounting of the numbers of various groups within the 50 states is the last federal census taken five years ago. "We don't really know how many older lowans there are," said Gary Miller, statistical research analyst for the Iowa Commission on the Aging. "About all we have to work with are projections." Miller's group was created by the Iowa Legislature in accordance with federal regulations to coordinate various programs for older citizens. As a guideline to what "old age" is, the commission uses age 60. The commission helps channel available state and federal funds to various programs for the elderly. The number of the state's elderly is important when applications are made for federal funds for special projects. "It gets hard to figure sometimes," Miller said. "Wh.en getting funding from the federal government, the amount is usually divided between the states on a father is in the war. so he is sent to live with his mother in New Mexico. It is at this time he begins the process of growing up. "I Never Loved Your Mind" is ; a mad, funny, serious novel th'at explores the relationship of two teenagers working in a hospital, living in a commune. The author is Paul Zindel. Byron Carmichael didn't especially want to be a winner or a loser — he just wanted to be somewhere in between. You may read about him. his friends, and adventures in "Don't Play Dead Before You Have To." There are also three new hardback books — "Love is a Missing Person." by M.E.- Kerr, "Green, Green My Valley Now," by Richard Llewllyn, and Paige Dixon's book, "May I Cross Your Golden River?" 21 — B's conference track — Lake City 22 —G's state track: B's-G's district golf 25 — Semester tests 26 —Semester tests 27 — Teacher's records 28 — Report cards: B's-G's state golf; B's state track percentage basis, with the state having the highest number of old people getting the most money." The last census showed 470,392 persons over age 60 residing in Iowa, out of a total population of 2,824,396. Since those figures are dated, two government projections have been made in an attempt at updating. The Iowa Department of Health, Miller said, in 1975 estimated the number of older lowans at 508,500, while in 1974. the Administration on Aging of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare estimated'that'there were 490.000 elderly residents in Iowa. "The problem is," Miller said, "there is a difference of 18,500 people. "Who's to say which is closer? The next federal census is another four years away." While the commission uses age 60 as the turning point in a person's life, the U.S. government does not keep comparative statistics for states until a person reaches age 65. According to the 1970 census of the number of residents age 65 and older, Iowa ranked third nationally, with 12.4 per cent of its population over that mark. Florida led with an elderly population of 15 per Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, April 30, 1976 10 cent, and Arkansas was second with 12.5. Miller said most of Iowa's elderly live in what he called "rural small towns." "By that," he said, "I mean those towns with populations of 500-2,500 in a farming area. Usually the towns are kind of like going out of business, with the business districts closing and the younger people moving to the city or out of the state." Miller said most of the elderly are concentrated in the southern one-third of the state. "We've, noticed that they tend to be in areas where there was a lot of coal mining at one time or another," he said. "However, most of the old people in the towns are either people who have lived there all of their lives, maybe running a business there in the past, or have moved in off a farm in the area." Miller said that the Administration on Aging has noted in studies that the small towns have, in one way or another, been a "home to them." Why do the elderly continue to live in small towns? Miller said he thinks there are two possible explanations. "First, I think the old people want to live in a familiar setting, and second, I think it is economically impossible for a lot of them to move. After all, it's cheaper to live in a small town than in Des Moines or Cedar Rapids." Miller also said he thinks a lot of elderly who move out of the state to retire eventually move back because the cost of living here is lower than in other parts of the country.
