To Preserve Iowa Culture Congressman John Culver has announced a statewide meeting will be held Jan. 21 in Des Moines at the New Grimes Office Building, to focus attention on the preservation of Iowa history and culture. Culver, working in conjunction with Adrian Anderson, state liaison officer for the Historic Preservation Act of 1966, has arranged for two representatives of the Department of Interior- William Murtagh, keeper of the national register, and Russell Keune, director of historic preservation — to meet with interested organizations and people within Iowa to provide for an exchange of ideas and to activate the federal register historical preservation program within the state. Culver said, "Despite the many structures and sites of his­ toric value in Iowa, our state was not included in the more than $5 million in federal matching grants awarded to 46 states last year. This money, awarded under the Historic Preservation Act of 1966, may be used for surveying, recording and preserving sites with historical, archeological or architectural significance." Culver said he hopes this meeting will act as a catalyst to activate the national register program in Iowa. "Surely it is important that we record the distinctive and irreplaceable reminders of Iowa's history by preserving the events, the people and the time periods which provide visible continuity with our past. We must begin this work immediately before the memories of the past are covered over and forgotten by the building and construction of the future," Culver pointed out. $1,170 Damage City Teachers In Accident Will Evaluate At Pocahontas GLEN PETERSEN Completes Basic SAN ANTONIO — Airman Glen A.
