Federation Official Discusses Soil Bank H. R. "Bud" Morgan of thc National Wildlife Federation met with members of the State Conservation Commission's Fish and Game Division December 16 to discuss the conservation reserve features of thc 1958 Soil Bank Program. Morgan outlined the provisions of the conservation reserve feature of the Soil Bank Program, emphasizing its value to tbe fanner and sportsmen alike, through creation of new wildlife habitat. Iowa is one of several mid- western states being visited by Morgan on behalf of the program and its important role in wildlife conservation. Iowa, according to Morgan, has "vast potential" in the amount of acres it can assign to participation in the conservation reserve phase of the 1958 Soil Bank Program.

It's doubtful whether there is any solution other than that of faith. It was in something of Job's spirit that Christ cried in His agony in the garden, "Father, if it be possible, let the cup pass." Yet, His supreme concern was that the will of God should be done. He went to the Cross in the courage of faith, knowing that it was God's way. The mystery of suffering has never been made plain.
