Dave Meylink, Steve King, Steve Searl, Jim Johnson, and Kelvin Korver will bring to an end their football careers in the final Northwestern game against Concordia on Nov. 6. "All five of these young men have played outstanding football for Northwestern," said Coach Korver. "Dave and Steve have played in every game for four consecutive years. Jim has worked his way to a starting position this year and is having an outstanding year. Kelvin has played in every game for three years and has been called upon to do double duty this season. Steve started as a freshman, dropped out for two years, and has now completed his last two years as a de- fensive leader. These five men will be hard to replace." Dave Meylink is a senior from Orange City. He has had four seasons as a regular flanker and has also played defensive halfback. He was a first team District NA1A selection as a sophomore and junior and All Conference as a sophomore and junior. He holds the NW pass receiving record and holds the national punt return record.

Dr. R.J. Hassebroek was absent. A 30-mlnute videotape film , of, ...gig, .elementary,: >,Junior high, and Senior high was shown' to the board members. The film showed the aspects of a student's availible classes and facilities. It. was designed to show how the schooj promotes citizenship, provides guidance .and the means to attain these goals. It will be look. "It is unique," added Rev- nen. "It is an international trade center and an oil depot and at the same time there are Arab Bedouins maintaining their ancient culture as though there have been no changes in the world." The small country of Kuwait does feel the tensions brought on by the Israell- Arab conflict. "As a stlfdent in Kuwait I felt the influence of both countries. At first I thought that the Israelis and their backers were in the wrong establishing an Israeli State. Now I think both sides have made mistakes. Antl Americanism is not a problem In Kuwait, however. Because fljere are many evacuated Palestinian Arabs in Kuwait, there is a hostile feeling against the American government for its actions, but not against the private American citizen." Bob Reynen agreed, "They'll be very friendly to you as an American while at the same time they are raking the U. S. government." "As an American citizen I felt very much at ease living in Kuwait," said Tim. "It is a socialist country that provides services for all persons living there—hospltalization and education, for instance, are free. There are no taxes. The substantial part of the state's money comes from oil, profits from oil are shared by all. The standard of living for most persons is comparable to that in the United States. The per capita income is higher than the United States Up until the Alaska oil strike, Kuwait was thought to be founded on the largest oil deposits in the world. The american School in Kuwait has approximately 600 students of whom almost half are Americans. But 32 countries are represented. Ever since the founding of the American School, Norhtwestern Alumni have taught there. At the present, Paul Leemkuil from Little Rock, Iowa and Don Vander Wai from St. Anne, Illinois are teaching in the American School. shown to groups such as the Lion's Club, Jaycees, and Women's Clubs. The board was told that Miss Helen De Jager was tutoring Scott Mulder for 4j hours a week for $5 an hour. Principal Leonard Krommendyk advised the board on the purchase of a sound sys- ' tern for use by students confined to their homes. It was decided by the board to connect an extension phone in the bus barn in Maurice to the regular line. The board is accepting applications for the job of girl's physical education teacher. The position is being advertised in college placement bureaus. Only one application has been made to the board. After hearing the bids from The CAPITAL and the Democrat for the publishing of school legals, the board chose to go with The CAPITAL. The subject of the prom came up again and Principal Bob Winegar told the board that the Junior class is $500 short of the $1200 required for a prom and banquet. Members of the Junior class are now considering alternatives to a prom. Floyd Valley and Sibley have made application for admittance to the Siouxland Conference, Superintendent Frank Hulsart has advised the board. The subject is now under consideration by the board.
