More entire Bibles were distributed by the society in Brazil and in the Caribbean agency, and- more than twice as many in the Upper Andes 'agency than in 1932. In Japan the circulation was greater than in any year since the organization of the agency in 1876. while in China, despite internal disorders, the various Scrip ture distribution agencies circulated more complete Bibles than in any year since the beginning of evange* lical effort in that great missionary field.

Robinson I upwards of 70,000 individuals. The I erection of two new modern Bible houses in Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo during the year aided in increasing interest in Bible work in these two countries. Thes reports of distribution in the United States showed not only a larger circulation than in 1932. but also an increase of more than 50 per cent in the circulation of entire Bibles. Against this record stands the state ments made by one of the society’s workers who, in calling upon nearly 8.000 American homes during the year, found practically 40 per cent of the homes without Bibles. In a western state one family admitted that for four generations its members had been without a Bible. In Cuba the political disorder and strikes did not hinder the work seri ously. At the height of the revolu tion when there were no newspapers and no mails one colporteur sold twelve Bibles and 102 portions of the Bible in less than a half hour. A se ries of droughts, cyclones, and floods in the eastern part of Mexico gave the society’s agency an opportunity for a special distribbution among the sufferers, while in one province, dur ing a hitter anti-religious persecution, three of the society’s colporteurs were the only religious workers of any kind able to remain. In the La Plata agency of South America two Bible coaches purchased during the year were a large factor in the work. In Paraguay important work was done among the Bolivian prisoners of war. Scientific invention and progress helped to counterbalance some of the unfaboravle economic conditions.

In Africa, according to the society’s report, translation work in three dia lects progressed, the New Testament in Tetela, the revision of the New Testament in Luba-Lulua, and the gos pels in Shilluk, while the New Testa men in Myore was completed. New Testament translation in both Quiche and Mam for Indian tribes in Guate mala was carried on. In the Philip pines the work was chiefly that of improvement of translations already published, with revision work on other dialects and the first publication of the Psalms in Samareno. In China the revision of the New Testament in the Hinghwa colloquial was completed, and in Turkev the re vision of the Old Testament for pub- Mcation in the Roman alphabet con tinued to advance. Announcement was made that the latest statistics show that the Bible or some part of it has n-jw been trans lated into 941 languages and dialects.

The society continues to face many publication problems in supplying Scriptures in from 150 to 175 different languages. Whne Scriptures are need ed for a remote tribe the edition will likely involve special technical pro cesses, The demand for penny por tions at times is so great that editions of a million or more are printed at one time. Frequently publication must be in two languages in parallel columns. The American Bible Society is in its 99th year of supplying embossed Scriptures for the blind. 2,969 vol umes, furnished at the special price of 25 cents a volume, were distributed from the Bible House in seven dis ferent embossed systems. A special appropriation for enlarging the work among the society’s foreign agencies was granted during the year and the publication of the gospels of St. Mat thew and St. Mark in the new stand ard English occurred, the first volumes of the Scriptures to be embossed in this system.

RY J BASKERVILL. Raleigh, April 10-Aid in the sup pression of forest fires cannot be given counties that make no provi sion by appropriation for this form of protection. State Forester J. S. Holmes said yesterday in explaining why assistance could not be extended in response to calls received from such counties during the recent severe fires in the northwestern part of the State. Regulations of the Federal govern ment. Mr. Holmes explained further, prohibit the use of these in the CCC camps for fighting fires in counties that do not have forest fire organi zations. No provision sfor protection were available in several of the conn ties suffering most heavily in the re cent outbreak of flames in the woods Showing the limit of funds available for forest fire suppression, the State forester pointed out that State appro priations for this purpose are only $2.- 562 for the current year. If this amount were spread evenly among the 100 counties, only $25.62 would be available for each. Because of this limit and following out the system under which forest fir<~ control activities have been carried out since the program was initiated in North Carolina, work is centered i” counties where cooperative funds ar made available. State are supplemented by federal fund and an allotment from the game fund and countv appropriations are match ed dollar for dollar by a combination of states, game and federal funds This money is budgeted by counties and is obligated for expenditure en tirely within the counties making pro visions for cooperation. At various times, the Department of Conserva tion and Development has offered tc supply firefighting funds equal to those furnished by any county. "Forest fire control to be effective must be carried on permanently or continuously,” said State Forester Holmes. “It is a waste of time and effort to extinguish a blaze one day, only to have another break out later and burn over the same territory. Wardens should be on the job or avail able for duty at all times, day or night to meet any emergency it we are to be successful in reducing carnage to our woodlands. Federal officials realize the futility of spasmodic fire control and this is why they have de clined to let forces from the CCC fight, fires in counties that do not provide a permanent organization. "The effectiveness of organized control is demonsrtated by a contrast between counties with organizations •and those without protection in 1933 Our records show that the average fire in cooperating counties last year burned only about 68 acres while tb average fire in counties without any form or organized control burned some 1.399 acres. In other words, the fires in counties where no organize' efforts were made for their suppres sion, covered more than 20 times ar much territory as those having organ izations for this purpose.” The early church said that all the r.agan gods were fiends.
