Woman pulls razor blades on police Excitement hit Orange City last Saturday night when the mystery woman hit Orange City. The Le Mars police had radioed to Larry Hoekstra, on duty that night, that this woman had gotten on the bus in Le Mars and to be on the lookout for her in case she got off in Orange City. Larry had alerted the people in The Dutch Mill Inn about her and Sheriff Ted Hoogland told the Bowling Alley to watch for her. Hoekstra watched her get off the bus but could not pick her up because she hadn't done anything. He had been warned by the Le Mars police that she roamed alleys. The first stop she made was at Mouw's Super Valu where she asked, to use the phone; after being on the phone for about half an hour she was asked to hang up because it •was a business phone. During that time she was talking to a local minister about how people were out to get her. From there she went to The Dutch Mill Inn where she kept hitting a coin on the counter because she wanted change to use the pay phone on the landing. This time she called another local minister and talked along the same line. The Dutch Mill Inn called the hospital to radio to Hoekstra that she was on the pay phone there. Hoekstra, Sheriff Hoogland and Mrs, Hoogland went to the restaurant to talk to her. As they approached her she reached into her purse and grabbed three single edge razor blades and clutched them tightly in her fist. Hoogland tried to talk to her and explained to her that they could go some place and have the minister come and talk to her there with that she started "The Canadian West" another Cooper Brothers' film, is to be presented Monday, November 22, in the Orange City Town Hall at 7:45 PM as the second program of the Travel and Adventure Series. Scenic splendor, ghost town, industry, wild life and agriculture combine to give a refreshing look at this great land of our Northern Neighbor. From the prairies of Alberta, through the Canadian Rockies and the vast forests of British Columbia, to the Pacific Ocean, Dennis and Don Cooper follow the trails blazed by Alexander Mackenzie nearly two hundred years ago in his search for an overland route across the continent. The film is truly travel and adventure as It included canoeing down .the mighty Mackenzie River; following Mackenzie's famous "Wrong Turn"; watching Indian tribal dances, rodeos and the Royal Canadian Mounties; rafting on the Stikine and comparing the majestic Rockies rising from prairies with the buildings rising in the grand cities such as Victoria, Calgaryand Edmonton. Dennis Cooper, born and raised in logging camps of Western Montana, returned to the logging and sawmill business after attending Montana State University. Like his father before him, Dennis has logged the forests he knows so well in a way that does the least damage and preserves the natural beauty of the surroundings. Both Dennis and Don now spend winters on the lecture circuit and summers producing new films. Don is not new to this community as he pleased audiences here twice in 1969 with films on Alaska screaming and said "The cops are always after me!" Hoogland the.n tried to get the razor blades away from her and was cut several places on his right hand in the scuffle. Mrs. Hoogland and Hoekstra were nicked by the blades. Three more blades we re found In her purse. She was, taken to the State Hospital in Cherokee that night. She gave different names and addresses In Le Mars, Orange City and Cherokee. So far no one knows who she really is. Hoogland reported that the dress she was wearing was one like they wear in Institutions. area had 2,104 persons willing and available to go to work if a new industry was interested in locating here. "I know that we have had new Industry since the 1966 study was made," De Haan says, "and I am sure the results of the last manpower study helped us to attract them to the Sioux County area. These new industries have meant new jobs for our young people, permitting them to stay at home and earn a good living. It has also meant a broadened tax base, and enabled us to develop more and better community services. "We want to make this study as good as the one In 1966, because the results of It will be used to attract more business and industry to our area. We urge each and everyone of you to take a few minutes right now to complete and return your manpower ques- tionaire. It could be a big investment in your future and the future economic growth of Sioux County." De Haan says.

This program Is designed to incorporate all the subjects taught to students into an outdoor atmosphere. Bach, the 5th and 6th grade science teacher, was quick to ooint out that although science is the most obviously sub ect that can be covered outside, math and English will also be covered, They also suggested a 3-day field trip might be arranged to Springbook State Park near Guthrle Center. The total cost would be less than $5 and the students would have a fund-raising project to cover part of the cost. Although the board took no definite action, all the members seemed enthusiastic about the Idea, The board also accepted the resignation of Mrs, JoDunlop, girl's physical education instructor. Her resignation is effective at the end of this semester, January 14, The board Is still considering applications before hiring a re- placement. They hope to make a final decision soon, New board member, Orville Beltman, attended an orlenta-. tlon meeting in Spencer to get a better Idea of what a school board's responsibilities are. Beltman said that the meet- Ing was fruitful and extremely thorough. The board discussed the subject of girl's sports In high school. Principal Bob Wlnegar explained what would be in r volved in both a GRA (Girls' Recreational Association) and a varsity program, but until some action is taken by the students the board will make no move.
