approach to Lent Selfdenial is theme By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International Next Wednesday millions of Christians will observe one of the most important and least popular holy days on the church calendar It is called Ash Wednesday and it marks the beginning of Lent Saints may look forward1 to Lent But the ordinary strug gling sinner is apt to wince at its approach Exercise is en joyed least by those who need it most and Lent is a rigorous spring training season designed to exercise flabby muscles of selfdiscipline and obedience For many the first Lenten ex ercise is a 40day wrestling match with conscience Even in churches which stipulate cer tain minimum rules of fasting and abstinence it is up to each individual to decide what furth er acts of sacrifice and selfde nial he will undertake volun tarily The decision may be made in the spirit of the solemnly irifdrnied his that lie was giving up vegetables for Lent But if conscience wins the wrestling match the rules which a person prescribes for himself during Lent will be based on an honest examination of his own spiritual needs Since every individual is dif ferent the Lenten discipline which precisely suits one may be useless or even harmful to another Giving up vegetables for ex ample might be just the ticket for someone who had developed an obsessive lust for carrots Most people however prob ably will find other appetites swollen by selfindulgence In a society which is greatly con cerned with creature comforts it will be a rare person who cannot pinpoint at least one area in which he needs to bring the gratification of his senses under firmer control of the will Behind Lents emphasis on acts of selfdenial is an ancient Christian intuition that no pleasure is innocent if it be comes so greatly desired that it threatens to usurp Gods place as the object of supreme love and devotion man can serve two mas ters Jesus warned his disci ples The real purpose of dis ciplining bodily appetites dur ing Lent is to free the spirit to acknowledge God as its only In aster Giving up pet pleasures is not however the only kind of Lenten discipline that helps to free the spirit As Jesus pointed out in the parable of the sower the cares of world as well as the pleasures may become a weed that chokes out he seedsof life Pressure tension and har assment are at least as wide spread in modern society as the penchant for selfindulgence And they can be just as deadly to the human spirit The man or woman who is too tired to pray too busy to worship too drained of emotion to respond to an other persons need for love is scarcely closer to the kingdom of God than the less respons ible souls who are preoccupied with the pursuit of pleasure For the overworked and over scheduled simplification of life may be the best form of Lenten selfdiscipline Instead of giving up coffee or cigarets they might consider giving up some of the hustle and bustle of the hectic pace that has driven them to de pendence on chemical com forters The purpose is not to make lifeeasier but to make room in for God CLOUDY Iowa Increasing cloudiness Saturday night occasional snow extreme north warmer east portion lows 5 to

farmer Ed win A Jaenke associate admin istrator of the Agric u 11 u r a 1 Stabilization and Conservation Service charged Friday night Speaking to the final session of the second annual North Iowa Agricultural Institute at Hotel Hanford Jaenke said that with the redistricting that is taking place across the country this may be the last chance farmers will have to select their own program who are against this program want to give the choice of selecting a farm program to the city folks Jaenke con tended One reason the administration has proposed a new mandatory farm program rather than try to continue the present which Jaenke called a success no matter how you measure it is because under the present voluntary program noncoopera tors have the ability to nullify production limitations or to part of the gains brought out by produce without restrictions on cooperators production and to accept the The growing and unpredictfarm prices that follow able cost of the voluntary pro j vv VSULxJ

dead ly weapons will never have to be our preparations for war will bring us the preservation of peace But he said bluntly that the next and critical move is up to the Kremlin In the last analysis it is the leaders of the Soviet Union who must bear ihe heavy responsibili ty of choosing in the weeks that lie ahead whether we proceed with these steps for arms con proceed with new tests Kennedy said His reluctant but long consid ered decision was made Kennedy said because of gains in nuclear weapons power made by the So viets through a series of more than 40 tests fired last fall after months of secret preparation The Soviets did not gain superiority in nuclear power through those tests Kennedy said but they achieved progressin weapons de velopment which could lead to im portant breakthroughs in some la ter test series I must report to you in all candor the President declared that further Soviet in the absence of further Western prog ress could well provide the So viet Union with a nuclear attack and defense capability so powerful as to encourage aggressive de signs Unless the armsrace can be brought to a stand still with a test ban treaty policed by an in ternational inspection system Kennedy asserted the United States must advance its own weapons development in order to preserve the free worlds ability to deter to survive and to re spond to an allout attack Members of both parties in Congress also were quick to hack the President Kennedy said a careful evalu ation of the Russian test series indicated the Reds were work ing on an antimissile defense This more than anything prompted his decision to give approval to YUS tests along that line The President said the US still holds a commanding lead in small nuclear devices but with regard to larger weapons and an antimissile defense the lead is less definitive Fallout hazards that will come from tests are considered remote and infinitesimal he fri uiiio 13 U11G lllaLlLcLoUCCLle i used for many years in cotton

now appears to be no hazard for space travelers The Air Force said Friday a yearlong study based on infor mation obtained from a scientific package aboard what the Air Force referred to as Agena Sat ellite showed the lower Van Al ien belt may no longer be a problem in manned space travel The Air Force said data indi cates the belt is only onehalf as big in the area of major radia tion concentration as originally surmised However the heart of the belt has six times more radiation than previously estimated the Air Force said But since this area is smaller in size than originally thought a space vehicle would pass through it quicker than previously be lieved and thus would be subject to less bombardment by protons the Air Force said The outer Van Allenbelt is still undergoing

feed grain program Speaking tomore than 400 area i farmers and industry representatives thlH S i o u x City Republican said claims of a smashing success by program supporters and cries of a billion dollar bust by critics were exaggerations Miller did pointout however that he thought thV supporters of the program generated these exaggerations by their claims of a smashing success If indeed the program has been a smashing success Mil ler continued one naturally wonders why the secretary of agriculture doesnt ask that it be continuedinstead of having the President call for manda tory acreage allotments under a socalled supply manage ment program While the program can hard ly be termed a smashing suc cess neither should it be termed a billion dollar bust Since 1962 will be the last year for the emergency pro gram Miller continued the im portant thing now is where do we go from here Miller called the proposed supply management program of the a d m i n i s t r a t ion an program Either twothirds of the farmers are going to vote for a program with a mandatory acreage allotment which will include price supports or there will be no farm program and no price supports We have learned a great deal from the 1961 program Miller added and before re sorting to a regimented agricul tural program we ought to try to improve the 1961 program first I believe that if a program contains the elements of fair ness if we are willing to pay i adequately for taking good acres out of production if we are will ing to administer the program n a way that will prevent over reaching a voluntary program will work and we wont have to submit our farmers to the choice of loss of freedom or loss of their farms Also on the program of the afternoon session of the institute was a panel of representatives from three major Iowa farm or ganizations They were Oren Lee Staley Rea Mo president of the National Farmers Or ganization Kenneth Schuman president of the Iowa Farmers Union and
