Governor's Council (Continued from page 1) gained up to 50 per cent over the last decade while others have lost up to 20 per cent, and called for better air service, a stop to railroad aband- onments, more navigational aids for private aviation, and a favorable tax climate to help expand commercial activity In the region. Williams also pointed out that the population of the nine counties represented at the conference had dropped from 251,000 in 1960 to 243, 000 in 1970, a loss of approximately 3 per cent. This doesn't sound like much,he commented, but it represents more than 8,000 persons which is like depleting Osceola County in a 10-year period. Leo Carlson, president of the First National Bank of Sibley, spoke on transportation. He declared there is not one first-class four-lane highway in all of northwest Iowa and declared the routes that have been designated in need of development languish for lack of money. He called highways "economic development corridors" for the region and said, "If government is serious about reversing the out-migration of rural citizens then let it get serious about building economic development highways." John Corey of Spirit Lake told of studies now underway info the water quality of the Iowa Great Lakes and observed that as far as pollution is concerned it is cheaper to prevent It than it is to correct it after it happens. '. Farmer John Cleverlnga of Sioux Center said the nine northwest Iowa counties lost 4,097 farms in the last decade resulting in loss of 13,641 people. Declaring the average age of the Iowa farmer to be 58 years and his average investment to be $131,000, he asked, "Who is going to replace him'?" He asked that efforts be directed toward preservation of the family type farm and suggested worthwhile activities might include working for better roads, a fair property tax, additional livestock raising and better cooperation between farm groups. Remarking on the rising food prices controversy, Mr. Cleveringa said consumers paid 15.6 per cent of their take home pay for food in 1972 compared to 16 per cent last year and 23 per cent 20 years ago. In that 20-year period, the farmer's share of the food dollar has shrunk from 49 to BANK 38 cents, Cleverlnga added. Verlyn De Witt, a Junior at Dordt College, said it Is Inaccurate to say that young people generally want an overthrow of present society. Instead they are more Interested In planning for. the future. Chester Benson of Cherokee addressed problems of the aging and pointed out the major problem Is insufficient Income to sustain a reasonable life. Beyond that, he said transportation is a major problem for those unable to drive and too many elderly are forced to retire from meaningful roles In society when they retire economically. Speaking for the poor and minority groups, Keith Jewltt of Sioux City reminded the officials poor people don't always know where to go and whom to ask for needed help. John Leavitt 'of Marcus detailed the problems his community has had over the last decade in retaining medical care at Its new clinic. He asked more attention to train- Ing doctors for rural practice even to the extent of screening applicants for medical school at the University of Iowa to ascertain their willingness to remain in the state before being accepted. Dr. Glen Van Roekel of Le Mars called for expansion of outpatient facilities at hospitals and greater cooperation between hospitals. Duplication of equipment and personnel should be avoided, he said, and ambulance service needs improvement. Alternatives to cooperation, he said, are for small hospitals to close. In the field of education, Robert Hogeveen of Sheldon called for enlargement of educational units and efforts to change attitudes toward career education. "We need to continue to push career education as a desirable alternative to college." he said. To do this will require exposure to students at lower age levels to the opportunities to be found in the world of work. William T. Berry, of Orange City, director of social welfare for his county, looked forward to the time when the federal government assumes the responsibility for income maintenance of the poor. When this happens, he said, welfare departments will then be free to concentrate on delivering social services such as organized recreation, Big Brother and Big Sister programs, marriage counseling, meals on wheels and escort service for elderly, homemaker and home health aids to the handicapped/ and in- Consolidated Report of Condition of "Northwestern State Bank of Orange City" in the state of Iowa and Domestic Subsidiaries at the close of business on April 18, 1972. .ASSETS Cash and due from banks (including S None unposted debits ................ 980,322.67 U, S, Treasury securities ................ 594,996.78 Obligations of States and political subdivisions . . 634,276.63 Federal funds sold and securities purchased under agreement to resell ............ 2,400,000.00 Other loans .............. . ....... 16,477,000.28 Bank premises, furniture and fixtures, and other assets representing bank premises . 101,091.38 Real estate owned other than bank premises . . . 41,000.00 Other assets ............................ 2,758.72 TOTAL ASSETS ............

In summation, Governor Ray said he sensed an appreciation for the way of life enjoyed in northwest Iowa. He said he sensed a hope for the future, compassion for the handicapped, a desire for a pollution free society, a need for Improved transportation and a concern for the quality of education as being the major concerns of the region. Nine counties represented at the conference were Sioux Lyon, Osceola, O'Brien, Plymouth, Woodbury, Clay, Cherokee and Dickinson.
