A reported 4 to 5 Inches of snow fell In the Orange City area Sunday before dawn. Monday morning everything broke loose with blizzard conditions starting about 9:30. Winds gusting from 35 to 70 miles an hour swirled snow over the area. It was difficult to tell how much was blowing and how much new snow was falling because of the. low visibility. At times during the day the sun tried to peek out. Schools were dismissed soon after the winds came up. The Orange City junior high students made it home on the bus from Maurice but that was the one and only bus that made it out of town. The students that were stranded in Orange City were kept in private homes. Unity Christian and the Christian School got all their students home safe and sound. The State Patrol reported one accident in Sioux County during the blizzard. Mark Vermeer of Sioux Center hit the back of a car driven by County Nurse, Bernice Bergsma because of the near zero visibility on the highway. The accident occuredone mile east of the Million Dollar corner on Hi-way 10. Damage to the Bergsma car was estimated at $800 and $1000 to the Vermeer car. During all the ice, snow and blizzard conditions the city had very few reports of accidents. During the period only two accidents had to be reported to the state ($100 damage or over). One accident involved Robert Van Zanten and Al Hancock the other, Alan Hofland and Doris Vander Kop. No tickets were issued in either accident because of the weather conditions. Only three minor fender-benders were reported. The hard snow drifts caused by Monday's blizzard were the source of a lot of fun for kids on Tuesday. Jon Hall, Lyle Jeltema and Jack Hall slide down a big drift in the Stewarts' backyard without the benefit of a tobaggan. The drift almost covers the picket fence. People that had drifts in their driveways had to chop them out because the wind had packed them so hard.

Details will appear in next week's issue. Dr. Lars I. Granberg, President of Northwestern College, and Cornelius (Junior.) Siebersma, a partner in Kraal Furniture who served as '71 Northwestern Days Campaign Fund Chairman, were understandable pleased to receive a $5000> accreditation award on Jan. 25 for Northwestern from James L. Johnson, representative of the C.I.T. Foundation, Inc. Alfred E. Drake,' Director of Development, said "Northwestern was offered the $5,000 grant by the C.I.T. Foundation in recognition of Northwestern's accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities in '70, if a matching gift of $5,000 or more was made by the local business community." Orange City business and profession men, under Chairman Siebersma's leadership raised more than $20,000 in cash during the Northwestern Days Campaign. The victory goal was $17,500 and the challenge goal was $22,500. There are still some outstanding pledges which are expected to be honored before the end of the fiscal year. "A matching grant, especially of this size, provides strong incentive for donors," said Dr. Granberg. "Their gifts take on double value for they help us to qualify for the grant." "In awarding such a grant, the C.I.T. Foundation is making a far-sighted investment toward the preservation of that pluralism in education which is so necessary for sustaining our national freedom. Support of this kind from the private sector of the economy is essential and is one more reason why Northwestern places such a premium on the annual Northwestern Days Campaign." "Our heartiest congratulations to Mr.Siebersmaandhis team," continued Dr. Gran-berg. "The outstanding showing of support by the Orange City business and professional community for Northwestern is to be commended. It was the thrust to obtaining the C. I.T. Foundation grant." Junior Siebersma commented, "The volunteer soli- citors during the Northwestern Days Campaign did well to cover properly and on time every business and profession. I am pleased and happy that the campaign went so well. We are appreciative of all who responded." The Northwestern Days executive committee included: Del De Haan, Dale Hubers, Dr. Wallace Vermeer, Art Vogel and Tlarv Zeutenhorst. Jaycees to sell fish (Left-right) Dr. Lars ,1.

P jar ls empty<) s J to them or Sunday , The Orange City Jaycees have announced the dates for their first Annual Fish and Seafood Sale. Project chairman Don Vander Stoep says, "This will probably be the largest Fish and Seafood Sale ever held in Orange City." To enable as many people as possible to take advantage of the sale it will continue for three days beginning on Thursday February 3 and running Friday and Saturday. The Fish and Seafood Sale, will conincide with the annual Crazy Days Sale In Orange City. The Jaycees will be manning the stand throughout the 3 day sale and will be securing their fish from one of the area's largest wholesale suppliers. Vander Stoep further stated: "This Is one of the ways the Jaycees are able to raise money to support their various projects. The foremost .project of the Jaycees going on at the present time is The Children's Playground located in the Veteran's Park." The Jaycee Chidren's Playground was initiated last spring with the installation of two major pieces of playground equipment as well as several other smaller pieces. An announcement of further additions to this playground should be made next week. Preliminary plans now call for a possible addition of six pieces of equipment by Tulip Time. The Jaycees have committed themselves to approximately $10,000 worth of improvements in the children's Storm postpones 4-H planning meeting The meeting, to organize a boy's 4-H Club in Orange City, has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 31, 4:00 p.m. at the Orange City Elementary School Library. The meeting was to have been held on Mon., Jan, 24, but was postponed because of bad weather. All Orange City boys, between the ages of 9 and 19, are invited to attend the meeting. Interested parents are also encouraged to attend. 4-H offers young people an opportunity to "learn by doing" In several project areas such as small engines, plant growth, dog, bicycle, rabbits, . ecology, Insects, livestock, home economics and many others. Sioux County has for a long time had an active rural 4H program and is now enrolling many town young people. Nationwide, more than half of the total 4H members are city or town residents. playground and their only source of income is through projects such as the Fish Sale. Vander Stoep went on to say, "This is an excellent opportunity for people of the community to help in the development of our children's playground. A person has only to drive by the Veteran's Park on any summer day to see the tremendous use of the equipment already there to know that this Is a widely accepted 'and endorsed project. We hope everyone will take this into consideration and then plan to buy some fish and or seafood from the Jaycees next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 3-5." The sale will be held in the parking lot of the Super Valu store. Roger and Butch Mouw are cooperating with the Jaycees and have offered the use of space outside their building as well as the use of their freezers to store the fish and seafood during the three day sale. The exact hours of the sale are not yet decided but more than likely the sale will be held evenings as well as during daytime hours. Firemen will give toward new station Fire chief Orville Beltman informed the city council, at their regular meeting last week Thursday, that the OC Volunteer Fire Dept. is willing to contribute $3,500 toward the construction of the new fire station. This would eliminate the need for further cutbacks in features originally planned, As the total cost to the city will now not exceed the $90,000 authorized in the August 10 election the council awarded the contracts. Beltman also asked the council if they would object to electric doors if the fire* men could raise the $1,100 needed. He was told there would be no objection. Russell's Ready Mix's application to collect garbage was approved. The council was informed by city clerk Don Schreur that seven applications have been received for the opening in the police department. They are being studied. Wally Luhrs, representing the library, Discussed the need for more revenue as operating costs are expected to rise with the move into the new building this summer and the board feels strongly that hourly wages should be raised.
