Goodwill Industries needs discarded items for repair According to the Rev. John P. Hantla, Jr., Superintendent of Wall Street Mission Goodwill Industries of Sioux City, discarded materials are seriously needed now for continued full time employment of the over 180 persons working for the institution. All types of items are needed (except furniture and major appliances) to be repaired for sale in the Goodwill Stores. Sales In these stores account for most of the income of the organization. Contributions of material can be taken to the nearest Goodwill Collection Box. It is also hoped that churches and other organizations will solicit their members for castoff items. Arrangements can be made for a Goodwill • truck to pick up accumulations of materials by contacting the institution in Sioux City. "Fiddler on Roof" picked as 1972 Night Show GUEST EDITORIAL So, you're a Midwesterner Many of us can find ourselves In the following description of a Midwesterner. Since your editor found it unusually Interesting, it is being passed on to you. Maybe it will make you real proud. Perhaps it will cause you to think introspectively in a manner that is a little different than usual. The Midwesterner seems to get as much done as anybody else, but he never seems to be In a great hurry about it. He loves to talk, but he prefers small talk to big talk. He seems to have an innate understanding of the fact that time has a way of punishing braggarts. He doesn't believe much in hysteria. The periodic panics and alarms that sweep people in coastal areas rarely touch him. He still retains a Idnd of wonderful 19th century feeling of security In both himself and his section of the country. The Midwesterner has a wry sense of humor based on a sound set of normal values. Nothing is funnier to him than when someone or thing gets 'Hoo big for Its britches". He is self-confident in peace and makes a good soldier in wartime because he learns early to adjust. He knows each winter probably will be long and cold and each summer long and hot. He is automatically friendly to everyone he meets. He enjoys doing small favors, but he can be a long hater if he feels his friendship is imposed upon. The Midwesterner is endlessly curious. He likes to hear about how other people live, but he Is slow to change his own ways -- and won't be stampeded into doing so. The land usually molds and patterns the people who live in it and the Midwesterner is the man In the middle, far from the Influence of the seas. His nature is Influenced more by the slow-changing soil than by tidal Impacts. Weather rules his existence from birth and Is always there to ruin or enrich him. He's a great weather-watcher and a great homebody. No other American takes a deeper pride in his home « or works harder at keeping it up. To the average Midwesterner, a steak sizzling }n the barbecue pit in his backyard holds a finer music than any sonata by Beethoven . . . tomorrow's forecast by the weatherman is more meaningful than anything said In Russia yesterday about the international political climate. The Midwesterner, inhabiting as he does a vastrolling • midland, has a timeless feeling, a sense of eternity that springs only from the land. That is why he can spend 15 minutes on a street corner saying goodnight to a fellow hell be seeing at 8:30 a.m. the next day. Come up sunshine or a storm, there is one thing the Midwesterner can't quite understand: why anyone would possibly want to live anywhere else in the wide world except where he does. iiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiN Council enacts business At the City Council's regular semi-monthly meeting held Monday, the Council voted to retain the services of Williams and Company of Sioux City, Iowa to audit the records and accounts of the City of Orange City for the year ending December 31, 1971.

"Fiddler on the Roof," the longest-running musical in Broadway history, has been selected for the 1972 Tulip Festival evening show by the Orange City Tulip Festival Steering Committee. The story of "Fiddler"is simple and appealing. It takes place in the Jewish community of Anatevka, somewhere In Russia in the first years of the century. Tevye, the milkman, faces a basic dilemna. While his people's traditions are crumbling around him, he must cope with the marriages of his three strong - willed daughters. Night Show Chairman and producer of the 1972 show, Herb Ritsema announced this week that "Fiddler" will be under the direction of Keith Allen of the Northwestern College dramatics department. Keith has served as technical director for "Music Man" in 1968, "Oliver" in 1969, "Brigadoon" in 1970, and as director of "Camelot" in 1971.

Alvin Hon- Northwestern students are thanked by Indians Northwestern College students acted immediately to send aid to Pakastani refugees after an impassioned plea by Victor Pandia, youth director for the Church of South India, who spoke in the Northwestern Chapel in November. "The West Pakistani soldiers were inhumanly cruel to the people of East Pakistan," he said and told how entire communitltes were exterminated. The $662 sent to the National Christian Council ofln- dia for relief was only a small amount of the over 5 million needed to supply housing, food, clothing, blankets, medicine, the very basic necessities, for over 10 million refugees, but Chaplain Raymond Weiss of Northwestern has received two letters of thanks. Dr. Lesslle Newbigin, Bishop of the Diocese of Madras for the Church of South India, wrote, ", . .I'm exceedingly grateful to you and to the students of Northwestern College for this generous action, about which Victor Pandian had already told me." •", . .From reports of students who have recently visited- the refugee camps I note that the programme is being well administered and also that the neeed is almost unlimited. I am grateful for your help." "I am sure you will understand that the people of India are much perplexed by the actions of the US government at .this time. I hope that before this letter reaches you we shall be within sight of some solution for the tragedy of Bangla Desh." M, A. Z, Rolston, General Secretary, The National Christian Council of India, also sent greetings and thanks, "The National Christian Council of India is deeply grateful to you for your very generous contribution of $662 towards the relief of Bangla Desh refugees. You may rest assured that the money will be put to good use." "You may know that circumstances have now been created for the refugees to go back to their homes and settle down. The NCCI, with the help of the Churches of India and Overseas, will do its best to help the refugees to find a new life."

Motor Vehicle Registration Division, Department of Public Safety. He further stated that no person shall, with the intent to defraud, operate a motor vehicle with the knowledge that the odometer is disconnected or not functioning. Nor shall any person advertise for sale, sell, use or Install on any part of a motor vehicle or on any odometer in a vehicle, any device which causes the odometer to register any mileage other than the true mileage. "In the event that an odometer is repaired or replaced," Sinclair said, "the reading of the repaired or replaced odometer must be set at the reading that existed prior to such repair of replacement," In explaining the requirement, Iowa Public Safety Commissioner Michael M. Sellers said it is the result of an odometer law enacted by the last session of the State Legislature to ensure that vehicle odometers shall at all times correctly reflect the true number of miles a vehicle has been driven, "There have been numerous incidents throughout the nation of odometer readings being set back so that a vehicle could be sold as a lower-mileage, higher-priced item," the Commissioner said, "This Is a clear violation of the consumer fraud law," "Now, Iowa law provides for a criminal penalty for conviction of a violation of the law with punishment of a fine of up to $1000 or by confinement in a county jail for up to 90 days or both such fine and jailing," Snellers added. Sinclair said that when a 1969 or newer motor vehicle Is transferred, the old owner (Continued on page 2)
