Congress lacks power to curb the war machine, but that will not prevent the effort. We sensed an expectation about the Church which can not be justified on the basis of experience, experience, a reaching out which says: We ex pect the Church to give moral leadership in the nation. Will we rise to it? 68 vocational school students on honor list Northwest Iowa Vocational School announces 68 students on the Director'' Scholarship List for the Winter Quarter of the 1971-72 School Year.
