An educational Institution such as Northwestern is the concern of everyone Hrthe Orange City community. Everyone interested in the welfare of the community has a responsibility to participate in the development of Northwestern. , Northwestern not oniy brings many thousands of government and private funds into the community, but also contributes to the educational and cultural atmosphere of the area. Besides providing leadership In the many community activities, Northwestern an- hances the future development of Orange City by introducing the town to outsiders through Us many singing groups, drama students, teacher interns, athletes and many other student activities in the arts and sciences. Northwestern like many small colleges is in need of greater support from Us alumni and friends in order to meet the growing cost of a private education. As one Northwestern professor stated, the cost of a single instrument in the science lab is equal to the cost of his car. And to improve education we must improve facilities as well as to hire a fine teaching staff. Last year Orange City business and professional men raised more than $20,000 for Northwestern. Every gift is greatly appreciated by the college But if the college Is to be secured, many more friends are needed who will supply yearly gifts of considerable size. Understanding Northwestern's need, me Northwestern Days executive committee hopes for a sizeable increase in contributions. Census of Sioux County agriculture The 1969 Census of Agriculture shows that agriculture is big In Sioux county — big in investment, in sales of farm products and in purchase of supplies, according to Henry C. Moss, county Farm Bureau president. The census report issued this summer shows that value of farm land and buildings In the county was $237,818,688. And farmers had an investment of $26,522,526 in machinery and equipment. While there was no estimate of the investment in livestock, farmers had 200,308 head of cattle and calves, 244,434 hogs, 5,987 sheep and 268,574 chickens on hand when the 1969 census was taken. The average farm In the. county contained 217.7 acres of land with an average investment of $106,074 per farm. The total value of all farm products sold from the 2,242 farms in the county in 1969 was $103,696,503 — an average of $46,251 per farm. The sale of crops accounted for $11,355,575 and the sale of livestock products accounted for $92,340,927. Farmers are big purchasers of supplies and products needed for today's farm- Ing, Moss added. In 1969 farm production expenses In the county totaled $87,518,019. Production expenditures included the following: livestock and poultry, $41,375,019; feed, $22,165,623; seed, $1,328,907; fertilizer, $1,950,947; agricultural chemicals, $710,620; gasoline and other petroleum products, $2,093,193, hired farm labor, $1,366,925; contract and customwork, $1,423,503; and other pro- ductlon expenses, $15,027,333. population problem. Dr. Blagen found it impossible to predict when the population would demand too much of the food supply, but he did outline the aspects of the population problem. To begin with he spoke of "population dynamics." He pointed out that not only could the number of people increase but also that behavioral patterns can change drastically if the population density is increased. He also talked of the increase in the rate at which we are consuming coal, natural gas, and oil. If we continue destroying energy sources as we have been in the past, "we have only 13 years left" because the supply is' limited and there is no more — anywhere. Although there are other sources of energy such as fussion, they can be ignored since they can not possibly be available for 20 to 25 years and the problem is more immediate than that, he believes "we must remember that plants are our only direct source of energy." Another factor he pointed out is environmental deterioration. As we use our trees for energy the more erosion becomes a problem. Iowa alone loses 1% of its topsoil per year. Years ago the Sahara was as rich and fertile as Iowa is today, - The loss of topsoil made It the desert It is now. Population stresses is another thing Dr. Blagen mentioned, As technology advances the information received by the brain can cause a serious break-down in health, Another population stress he commented on is the.fact, that stress and an inadequate diet can cause mentaj illnesses such as schizophrenia. A lack of protein coupled with an excess of carbohydrates has been proven to be related to this condition because 80 to 85% of the schizophrenia were relieved by a reverse of this diet, Dr, Blagen also outlined why he believes we are In greater danger than India, First, we are using our irreplacable resources much too quickly. Already 66% of our coal, natural gas, and oil are imported from foreign countries. Second, we pollute to a greater extent than India. We are polluting our bodies with the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. If this continues there won't be any people left to save the earth for. Third, we are leaving ourselves wide open for agricultural disaster by raising one strain of crops. It may be high-yield, but it also can be destroyed by a single germ. Fourth, the rise of the automobile increases the chance of accidents. Fifth, already 60% of the world's population is under 21. This is another disadvantage of the population explosion. In summarizing, Dr. Blagen asked, "Will you be working on the solution or will you become part of the problems?" Dr. Blagen is a native of South Dakota who is now living Christian School elects three new board members (Continued on page 2) At Its recent annual meet- Ing held Sept. 8, the Orange City Christian School Society elected three new members to the Board of Trustees: Elmer Huizenga, Frank Vogel and LeRoy Woudstra. Those retiring after a three year term are Marvin Petroelje, John Te Brink and George Vogel. The newly constituted board met on Tuesday, Sept. 14 and elected officers. Thomas Noteboom was chosen as President, LeRoy Woudstra as Vice President, Dick W. Van Gelder as Secretary and Merlyn Rowenhorst as General Adjutant. Milton Pennings was re-elected as Treasurer. At the annual society meeting Principal Lewis Arkema reported that enrollment was down by 25 pupils from one year ago. This is due to a smaller Kindergarten enrollment as well as transfer to other Christian Schools as (Continued on page 2) Five will run for city council Nov. 2 Petitions have been filed for three men who will run for city council vacancies in the Nov. 2 election on two incum- bants have indicated they will seek reelection.

Balloting will be for three seats on the council -- the two now occupied by Haverdink and Mullenburg and the seat vacated by the resignation of Roy Vander Stoep. Final date for filing is Oct. 5. The council consists of five members serving four year terms. Every odd year the city holds regular election. This year two regular seats are to be filled; in 1973, three will be up for election. on October 1,
