The Normal class in the Board of Education, which is held triennially in accordance with the provision in Article XXVI, Section 4, of the Church Manual, held its sessions early in December, 1946. (See Manual, Article XXX, Section 1.)

The class of thirty pupils was taught by Miss Mary G.

In addition to her work as a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science, Miss Ewing was for a number of years a member of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

From June 1, 1942, to June 3, 1946, she held the office of Clerk of The Mother Church, and served as its President from June, 1933, to June, 1934. Miss Ewing's parents were pioneer workers in our movement, her mother, Mrs. Ruth B. Ewing, having been one of Mrs. Eddy's pupils, and a Christian Science teacher. Her father, Judge William G.
