This is written about two weeks after Easter. I have just listened to a report over the telephone concerning the progress of the "Building for Christ" effort. You will probably have more up-to-date figures when you read this. As of now: $3,000,000.00 from approximately two thousand congregations and 600,000 communicants. Judgment of observers at 210 North Broadway: With some thorough follow-up work the entire sum of $5,000,000.00 will be gathered before the leaves turn brown on our elms."
