1958   A cartoon drawn by Eleanor G. Bowman. Eleanor is the wife for FEBC Co-Founder Robert H. Bowman. She provided the art and layouts for FEBC publications from the start of the organization in 1945, until 1969.
The cartoon, patterned after the characters of Pogo, by Walt Kelley, depicts her personal view of the realities of FEBC in the formative days. Robert Bowman is shown as Pogo himself, moving from church to church, telling the stories of FEBC. In the lower left the "Home Office" staff works tirelessly to support those who are on "deputation," The tree with "916" represents the household of the Bowmans, largely bereft of dad who is constantly on the road telling the story.
