Among the Churches

Current Notes

Milwaukee, Wis.—One of the city's most active war work organizations which has received little publicity is the Milwaukee Christian Science Comforts Forwarding Committee, located in the Merchants and Manufacturers Bank Building. It originated in a number of church knitting circles, formed at the beginning of the war, which have been gradually incorporated in an organization of about one hundred and fifty members.

One hundred of these are divided into teams of ten, each with a captain, and executive matters are attended to by the ten captains. Two teams work each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There are also many outside workers who take pieces home to be made. Since May 1, when the committee was formed, more than eighteen hundred completed articles have been shipped, and in the great closets there are again as many to be shipped shortly. Among these are included many complete sets of garments, each set being counted as one article. Although the primary object is the sewing of various garments, there is an active knitting department. Completed articles are shipped to the Christian Science Comforts Forwarding Committee at Boston.—Milwaukee Sentinel.
