Cost of Conversions
Much attention has been direct
ed to the published statement of,
a well-known evangelist, a few ,
weeks ago, in hich he gave what
has been called a "tariff for the
soul3," estimating the cost of
conversions per capita in a num
ber of American cities where
he had hid revival services. Pro
ceeding upon the principle that
there is a commerical as well as
a spiritual side to religious work -he
gave the following figures:
New Orleans $78; Chicago $395;
Boston, $545; Indianapolis, $620. '
