The Christian Science Monitor of January 15 announced the opening of the Boston Emergency Relief Campaign for 1934, and the arrangements made by The Christian Science Board of Directors, whereby the contributions of employees of The Mother Church and of The Christian Science Publishing Society, as well as other voluntary contributions received directly by the Treasurer of The Mother Church for this purpose, may be expended through the Church's Unemployment Relief Committee and the direct agency of its Almoner. This plan of giving relief in the present emergency is similar to that heretofore followed. The Relief Committee of The Mother Church has been continuously active for two years or more in dispensing comforts, such as clothing, used and new, food, and other necessities, to worthy and needy applicants. Some branch churches are following a similar procedure to help meet the unusual needs of this period.

A representative of a Christian Science organization at one of the colleges in the United States was recently surprised to learn that in order to carry on its work a college organization formed under Article XXIII, Section 8, of the Church Manual need not have two Readers among its officers, and need not have Readers conduct its meetings. As was indicated in this column in the Christian Science Sentinel of October 28, 1933, the president of an organization may preside at its meetings; and the order of the meetings is usually somewhat like that of the Wednesday meetings in Christian Science churches.
