NW students raise $600 in one hour Northwestern College students raised approximately $r,oo in one short hour for relief of East Pakistani refugees. After a compelling plna in chapel by Victor Pan- dian, Youth Secretary for the Church of South India, who has been working with the Fasi Pakinstant refugees, the students collected $450. The amount was Immediately raised by contributions from the senior class and the boys in Heemstra Hall. "We realized that here were dvine brothers, 9,000,000 of Diem," said Ruth Langstraat, student council president. "It WHS our chance to help them if we could." The money will be channeled through the National Christian Council of India. Bishop James Edward Leslie New- bigin of Madras Diocese of South India is the co-ordina- tor of East Pakistani refugees in India. Colleges all over the country were urged to hold November 3 as a day to fast to save the people of East Pakistan by OXFAM-Amerlca, Inc. and Project Relief, Inc, humanitarian agencies. "We felt that because of Mr. Pandian's appeal and because we are a church related college, we would work through the church of India," said Ruth. "But OXFAM gave us the original push."

Music was furnished by Alfred Aalberts.PaulMuyskens, Roland Simmelink and Henry Van Aartsen.

Sioux Center farmer Sixty-four head of feeder pigs were stolen from the vacant farm of Jasper Timmer west of Sioux Center some time Monday. The theft was discovered about 10:00 a. m. on Tuesday when Mr. Tiai- mer went to feed them. There were about 90 head in the feed lot. Total value of the stolen pigs was $960. Sheriff Ted Hoogland and Deputy Larry Zeutenhorst were the in- vestingating officers. nuth Langstraat, a persuasive person with a ready smile, was elected the first woman president of the Northwestern student senate. A senior from, Sioux Center, Iowa, Ruth says, "We're eager to see the student senate have significant power. We are trying to focus the responsibility for what happens to the student where it belongs—with the student." "We as n senate, aro con- rnrnrd'wlth what's happening nt Northwestern. We reali/.e that Northwestern has a lot of potential. We want student support. We need the possibility of growth." "We are trying to meet the students where they are. Our student senate meetings migrate from dorm-to-dorm. They are held at 9:45 P.M. on Monday nights. Even at that, wo don't get many students whoare not senate members," Ruth reflects. "But we're trying." "One thing we do want is to eliminate double standards between men and women students on campus." Although this sounds like "women's lib," Ruth emphasizes, "We want a positive approach. We feel that dorm hours should be the same for men and women but we are sending letters to parents to get their reaction first." "For the first time we have a woman on the athletic committee. There are many women involved in the athletic program at Northwestern. Now they will have a voice in decision making." "The senate is trying to improve the student publications so that they reflect what is happening to kids on campus. We are considering a student publication board," Ruth continues. "Of course, we always do the routine stuff, "says Ruth. "-—Homecoming, Parent's Day. This year, though, we took over the complete responsibility for the social life so that kids will stay on cam- ous on the weekends. Many of our students live near Northwestern and go homo. "A big thing Is that we're getting involved in projects in the world around us. We raised nlni'id $r>00 for Pakistani relief and wo plan to offer our services to community drives. The community does a lot for us. We should contribute (o the community." With this kind of positive approach, Ruth concludes, "We're really trying to get on our feet as an effective student organization. This Is a trasition year."
