I •• 9 • AN EDITORIAL Hospitals do more than heal A cynic, It has been said, Is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. That witticism was brought to mind by an announcement from the Orange City Municipal Hospital that the week of May 7-13 Is National Hospital Week. We live in an age of cynicism, and hospitals certainly have been the target of their share. Hospital costs and how 'they've grown'is a. .topic.' that has been a favorite target for the viewers-with-alarm among us, and the occasion for criticism will become even more frequent as the subject of national health Insurance receives increasing national attention. No one—certainly not the hospital people themselves— denies that hospital costs have gone up at an unprecedented rate, as have the costs of all service-oriented businesses which must allocate the major portion of their budgets to wages and salaries. A perhaps less readily understood reason for the Increase In hospital costs Is hinted at in the slogan adopted by the American Hospital Association for National Hospital Week. The theme—"We want You . . . In the Picture of Health"--ls said to "express not only hospitals' traditional dedication to making sick people healthy but also their modern commitment to providing the framework for keeping all people healthy." That's a big order and experience Indicates that it cannot be filled cheaply. This is not to say that the cost of hospital care should not be subject to scrutiny and close monitoring. It should. And often It has been the spokesmen for the nation's hospitals who have been the first to tell us so. But If the American people want a health care system that will provide all the services for all the people all the time— and the action In Washington certainly leads us to think they do—then perhaps it Is only realistic to temper discussions of price with determinations of value. Sioux County town names from Mercedes Moir Caliope was Sioux County's original county seat. A group of rather unsavory characters had organized the county. With a total population of only four, they had elected each other to responsible county offices and then proceeded to float numerous fraudulent bond Issues covering non-existent roads, bridges and buildings. About that time the callope was invented. This was a form of steam organ and played loud, strident music and was used particularly in attracting crowds for circus parades. It usually led the parade. Sioux County officials evidently thought that this attention getting invention would secure untold publicity for Sioux County if the name was adopted to advertise the opportunities in the new Utopia of Sioux County. Hence the name— Callope. There Is quite an exciting story about the changing of the county seat to Orange City. A litttle Information—The county government was so corrupt that a group of Hol- landers'from Orange City descended on Caliope and forcefully removed all the county records to Orange City. A spirited election was then held to determine the site of the Texas and will be graduating in mid-August. He will then be working under the direction of A.D. Van Etten for a year after which he will be eligible to take the state board and become a licensed mortician. He plans to continue to be associated with Van Etten. new county seat, with Alton, Sioux Center and Orange City as the leading contenders. After a rather acrimonious campaign, Orange City was selected by a substantial majority and the present Court House was built to house the county offices. The original safe (weighing a ton?) was saved and at present Is. in the Court House. It will be moved once more--to the museum building when it is completed.

Sees rapid growth in cattle feeding in Sioux County Cattle feeding in Sioux County has grown rapidly in the past several years, according to Maurice Eldridge, Sioux County Extension Director, Furthermore, this has been a steady Increase and In some years, a large increase of several thousand head of fat cattle markteted over the previous year.

The conference, held on the Dordt College campus In Sioux Center, was arranged by Mayor Maurice Te Paske of Sioux Center who presided. The council came to northwest Iowa to "find out what people want ... to determine Dutch pottery to be exhibited at Festival The people visiting Orange City for the annual Tulip Festival May 18-20 Will have an opportunity to see the 80 ceramics of twelve Dutch potters.

A parade of witnesses addressed the meeting on 13 different areas of concern attempting to foresee the needs of the region and what can be done to shape the future. With Governor Ray were a dozen key administration members, together making up the Governor's Rural Development Council. More than 300 citizens jammed the meet- Ing hall to overflowing with many lining the walls at the rear of the room. Paul Berger, mayor of Sioux City, said cities and communities of the region need to support one another. He said northwest Iowa Is painfully aware of the out-mlgratlon of its young adults and must provide meaningful economic opportunity to these "most precious possessions." Atthe same time, he said, "Iowa can be somewhat selective in the type of industry allowed here." A. H. Te Paske, Sioux Center banker, said the demise of small towns has been foretold by prophets ever since the turn of the century but the small towns don't seem to have gotten the message. Mr. Te Paske criticized the report of a Nixon study committee which was prepared to write off towns under 25, 000 population as "shocking and unacceptable." He pointed out that surveys show many people prefer to live In towns of about 5,000 population. Communities of this size can survive, Te Paske stated, if they set realistic goals and are willing to cooperate with each other. William Tobln, city clerk at Rock Rapids, pointed to needed changes In tax laws by saying municipalities are restricted to a 30-mill real estate limit but that additional responsibilities are placed upon them by the legislature. While defending the 30-mill limit, he said additional money is needed and should come from state sources. He also asked for Improvement in the law which allows local governments to join together on common projects. Walt Williams, director of the Spencer Development Commission, cited figures which showed some communities In northwest Iowa have (Continued on page 2) Queen, Court to appear on TV The following TV appearances of the Tulip Festival' Queen, Court and the Dutch Dozen have been scheduled.
