The Mother Church Wartime Fund, which was opened in January, 1942, and which so magnificently financed the work of the wartime years, is still open. This Fund is used to alleviate human suffering resulting from the war. It is also used to promote the welfare of Christian Scientists who are serving in our armed forces. This latter activity entails the cost of salaries of our Wartime Ministers, their expenses, and the cost of authorized literature supplied to the men and women in camps and elsewhere.

The fruitage warrants the continuation of this very important work, and contributions are needed to carry on. They should be designated for The Mother Church Wartime Fund and sent to Roy Garrett Watson, Treasurer, 107 Falmouth Street, Boston 15, Massachusetts.

Improved economic conditions in countries overseas, to which food and clothing have been sent for several years, make it unnecessary to continue this relief activity. Since 1940, clothing valued at nearly five million dollars and food to the amount of over two million dollars have been lovingly contributed by Christian Scientists through the relief activities of The Mother Church. This generous support has brought aid and comfort at a time of great need to a very large number of people, many of them Christian Scientists.
