OUR WORLD

ISSUE ONE --- 1969
AMERICAN FIELD SERVICE

Cover

Expanding from a green circle of fertility, the tree---like AFS---draws upon many sources in its progress upward and outward. As dimensions grow, both the tree and its background are continually changing. New offshoots are born, and there is need for more nourishment. Exploding into thousands of individual yet interrelated silhouettes, the tree will flourish and reach fuller growth as long as it is maintained by constant life forces.
