Rock Valley Bee (Newspaper) - November 23, 1961, Rock Valley, Iowa One of the best ways to combat delinquency, this not so sage sage says, is to get teen agers as interest- ed in sonfething as those kids that make up the Da- kota Cloggers are in square dancing. They were a real fine group with loads of talent and a healthy friendly hos- pitable attitude that I'd like to think is uniquely Amer- j ican. They'll be back in De- cember and I am going to I be sure I see them. It. is with regret that I heard that game little Lar- ry Talsma- died as was pre- dieted. Cancer finally -got Kim off" his feet and then kept him there until, the end.

The Dakota nation- ally famous for their square dances, will appear here De- cember 29 so that ths public will be able to attend. At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors of the Sioux Electric Cooperative association Orange City, Iowa, action was' taken by the board of directors to repay the sum of in patronage refund credits to those members who were re- ceiving service from the Coop- erative during the period from organization and including 1945. Since its organization, the electric cooperative has been steadily improving its system so that this payment can be made, without jeopardizing the financial condition of the or- ganization. Sufficient provision has been made to meet the Cooperative's current obligations, as weel as to continue to maintain a good sound physical plant, an official said. Cooperative principles de- mand that any excess earnings be repaid to the membership in the form of patronage refund credits. These rnve been very care- fully set up on the records, but due to the Cooperative's mort- gage indebtedness, as .well as current obligations, it was not feasible or financially sound to make any repayments prior to this time. It is expecter that these pay- ments will be made to the recipients sometime in Ap-' or May.
