Orange City was without lights or power between 7:45 and 8:15 Tuesday night as a result of a blow-up of the feeder line from the sub-station to the plant. Part of the necessary repairs had to be completed' before current from the standby plant could be fed into the i city's distribution system. A large fuse had to be repaired before power from the bureau was resumed. Utilities employees worked until 6:30 Wednesday morning to restore normal service.

The men, Al Roos, Fred Dykstra, Rudy Grienke and Stan Van Otterloo, had come , directly to the plant from the annual firemen's costume dinner without stopping to change. New generator keeps muni hospital bright The Municipal Hospital was the one bright spot in Orange City last evening during a 35 minute power blackout. The new emergency generator kicked in within five seconds and while residents were groping for candles or antique kerosene lamps operations at the hospital ran along as usual. Emergencies of this type do occur infrequently but the community should appreciate this addition to the hospital's equipment which Is adequate to meet all power needs, Markets (On Tuesday afternoon at the Farmers Co-op Elevator at Orange City, la.)

Henry Hospers' leadership is currently being recognized by a display In his honor in Ramaker Library on the Northwestern College campus. Hospers, who accompanied the founders of Pella, initiated Pella's WEERBALD, and served as notary, justice-of-the peace and mayor of the Pella • settlement. As a leader of the Dutch who founded Sioux County Iowa Settlement, he became and advocator of Christian education. Higher education was thought to be necessary by the founders of Sioux County. It is recorded that "one fifth of the prceeds from the sale of lots to be set aside as a college fund." Hospers donated the 13 acres of land on the souhern outskirts of Orange City for the establishment . of the Northwestern Classical Academy. He served on the Board of Trustees of the Academy and as Treasurer. He founded a bank in Orange City which he operr'ed until 1900. He published DE VOLRSVRIEND. (The People's Friend) a newspaper which was widely read. In 1811 his people chose him as a member of the Iowa State Legislature and he later became a state senator. He died Oct. 21, 1901. Hospital fund drive dates: Nov. 14-12 The Hospital Special Needs Committee, at their Tuesday morning meeting, set the week of November 14th for a fund drive to attempt to raise $17,000.00. This Is the amount still needed to pay for the new X-ray, emergency generator, addition to the Hospital and remodeling which cost a total of $91,000.00. Gillls Haverdlnk, Corn- mittee Chairman, remarked, "There is never a good time to ask for donations, but we have a deadline to meet on December 1st. This is the date on which the final payment for the X-ray is due and we hope the funds will be available." He also stated that, "The original estimate last year of $85,000.00 to complete this project was optomlstlc. We found some additional new equipment was needed and the costs of the new addition and remodeling overran somewhat so $91,000.00 was the total project cost." A combination of a mail and personal solicitation campaign was decided upon In the attempt to raise the $17,000.00 still needed. NW Parent's Day is set for Oct. 23 Parent's Day at Northwestern College has been set for Oct. 23. "There are going to be a lot of parents coming," says Vicky Birchard, Northwestern sophomore who is the 1971 Chairman. "I have skads of cards back!" Vicky wrote and informal letter to over 675 parents of Northwestern students. "We tried to keep the schedule so that it wasn't so compact.
