Then someone suggested we pick a score and a margin of victory - win or lose. Each person put up a$l. At that time therewere 20 present. Paul Van Engel- enhoven ofHubers,VanEngel- enhoven &. Doornink, Insurance Agency, Inc. kept the scores on a Dutch Mill paper' napkin. The winner whose score came closest had to buy coffee for the losers. In that first game, I think the winner lost money paying off the losers," said Norm. "Then," he continued, "We thought if we could get a few more to go in, we could raise money for- the Northwestern Athletic Department. We decided to hold It at 30 persons putting in $1.00 per game. They may not be the same men each time. However, Orange City business and professional men who usually stop for coffee' at 10:15 a.m. on a Saturday morning after a Friday night basketball game include such Red Raider backers as; Earl Klay andNorman Bastemeyer, Attorneys; Wally Luhrs, of L & K Clothing; Mert Kraal, of Kraai Furniture; John Draayer, of Draayer & DeJong Real Estate; Del De Haan, Postmaster; Harold Paekel, moving; Paul Van Engelenhoven, Insurance; Cliff Bogaard, Tri-State Livestock Auction Co,; Don Jacobsen, N.

The winner Is guaranteed $5,00, but he must put up the money for coffee for the losers. Northwestern receives $25,00, "It's really not gambling," Bastemeyer assured, "H's the same group that has coffee together anyway. It amounts to a weekly gift of'$25.00 to the college athletic department. As we set It up in the beginning, the winner lost, now he may make $1.00.

Development Corp. has annual meeting The Orange City Development Corp. held its annual stockholders meeting Thursday evening, Febr. 3 at Keith ley's Dutch Mill Inn, John Draayer, Wally Luhrs and Paul Van Engelenhoven, incumbents, were re-elected to the board of directors. The board later named Don Vander Welde to serve the unexpired term of the late John Ter Horst, Representatives from Evangel Aircraft, K-Products . and Vogel Paint and Wax gave The anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scouts "of America falls on February 8, and this February the Scouting organization will be 62 years young. The nation has good reason to cherish its Boy Scouts as never before. As they pursue their anniversary observation, adults will be reminded that such things as self-reliance and good citizenship remain very much in vogue where it counts most -- amidst a major segment of the youth, into whose hands the reins of community leadership and business will fall a few years hence. One of the most important aspects of Scouting is an appreciation of the outdoors and of learning to live with the most rudimentary tools of survival. Under the •patient guidance of volunteer Scout leaders, young boys from every walk of life come to that amphitheater of nature where all are equal -- the Boy Scout camp. They return a little wiser, a little more humble and with a little more understanding of the great land in which they are privileged to live. The entire nation benefits from the Scouting experience, thus the entire nation should extend best wishes to the Scouts on their 62nd birthday. HW auditorium gets press box The Northwestern College Auditorium, which barely contains the host of Red Raiders fans who follow the basketball games, has a new look. The Tolman Manufacturing Company has donated a press box which is a 6' by 24' structure suspended from the ceiling. It is strictly for the use of the media, statisticians brief reports on their manufacturing firms, Marvin Vogel, speaking for Vogel Paint and Wax, reviewed the company's acquisition of various paint companies'dur- ing their history and grow in sales from $800,000 to $8 million. Art Cragle of Evangel Aircraft reported that starting July 1 Evangel expects to complete one aircraft per month through mid 1974. He went on to say-Evangel will be getting a sub-contract from a South American firm to manufacture 24 aircraft, Tom Kahout of K-Products reviewed the change two years ago from manufacturing caps only to including jackets iu their line. They are now jobbing out jackets but expect to take over complete manufacture of jackets in the future. He also told the group K-Products is now organizing a second shift on the embroidery equipment, from contending teams and scouts. Norm Wolf, admissions counselor atNorthwesternand sports broadcaster for KIWA, says, "It's a great improvement - an excellent facility. The broadcaster can see the entire floor. It puts us right in the middle of the game. The noise is less than it was before. The structure has a wood floor so there is no vibration." "I've been at a lot of places broadcasting and as far as being able to see and being able to get away from the noise, Northwestern's_ press box can't be beat. ' Some schools have more elaborate boxes but you are too far away from the game-," he continued. "In ours it can get a bit crowded with our broadcasters, two scouts, two statisticians, etc, - but it's great." Besides the press box, bleachers have been added to the balcony where hundreds of fans used to crowd so that even breathing space was hard to come by. The offices of Athletic Director, Don Jacobsen, Coaches, Korver and King, and Women's Physical Edcuation In* structor, Jean Mast, have been carpeted and draperies have been hung.
