Larry Woods, a s s i s t a n t director of. the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission, told councilmen that the annual arrangement is HUD's consolidated grant ap plication program. HUD is asking certain cities to submit applications for funds on an' annual basis rather than on a project basis, Woods explained. He said cities with a population of more than 10,000 persons and those which have received HUD money in the past were invited to participate in the annual arrangements. Fayetleville and Springdalc were both invited. Woods said. Their joint community development statement to HUD would be for more than {1 million. Woods told the councilmen HUD officials would be more likely to accept the joint application because cities with a population of 60,000 and more will be given priority. A joint effort would put the application Into that class. Woods said that 90 per cent of the HUD money will go to cities accepted in the annual arrangement program. The remainder would be distributed to the other cities in the state. LAND MANAGEMENT In another regional matter, Woods presented the council with a recommended land resource management plan currently being considered by the regional planning commission. He asked the councilmen to carefully study the plan and forward any comment or suggestion for change back to the regional planners. The regional planning commission is expected to consider the plan for adoption at its regular April meeting, Woods said. Following the commission's adoption of the plan, Woods told councilmen, the plan would come back to Springdale and the other localities for their approval. Once approved the regional plan will be used by the regional planners as a guide in making many decisions.'

How can people call hemselves Christians and yet ack humility? Would 1 you please ell me your definition of humility? M.E.S. Augustine once said: "It was pride that changed angels nto devils; it is humility that makes men as angels." Now, it's one thing to report actually of possessions you lave. It's another when you do t pompously or boastfully. That's what bragging means. True humility is a simple recognition of what we are. You see, the word "humility" comes 'rom the same root word as 'humus" does, so you recognize t has to do with a sort of 'groundness", a return to the larpan of facts. It's good to remember that God requires us to cherish no views that contradict the truth. Se wants from us no false lumility. God is not pleased with a cringing sort of self- contempt. I think of the words of the old hymn, "Naught have '. gotten but what I've received.' This, then ,is the Christian philosophy of life that gives birth to repentance and faith and the true humility. Paul suggested that arisinj out of the total commitment o his faith, his "humility" if you please, was a certain discovery "I have found it to be the onl svay really to know Christ, am to experience .... power. Philippians 3:10. | D o n ' t spend any time becking the humility readings f others. See to your own, for hat's all God expects! Farm Work Is Delayed By Boggy Fields WASHINGTON (AP) -- Se- rere weather that has plagued he harvest of 1972 crops since early last fall is keeping fields oggy as farmers prepare to urn to spring work, the Agriculture Department reports. Besides field problems in many Corn Belt areas where armers still are trying to salvage corn and soybeans, the advent of warmer weather is raising concern over the condi- ,ion of stored crops, the department said Tuesday in a weekly weather bulletin. "Much corn was picked anc stored at rather high moisture evels and was expected to be marketed by this time," the re port said. "However, local grain dealers 'do not have storage space available, and they are not buying much corn now." In the South, the cotton harvest dragges on in many areas, By this week, the report said, three per cent of the nation's cotton remains in fields, although the big Texas crop was picked by Feb.- 20, FCA Plans Game For Tomorrow Night At FHS THE UA chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes will sponsor a basketball game tomorrow night at the Fayelte- ville High School gym.
