A Survey that Business Men Must Admire
For more than a year hundreds of workers have been
quietly engaged in making a scientific survey of the mission
fields, and of America county by county.
The facts developed are startling. No such picture of

nominations are uniting in a
Nation Wide Cooperative Campaign
Each of the thirty denominations has its own "For
ward Movement" organized and officered. The Interchurch
World Movement is the clearing house for all of these.
It is the agency which the churches have created to
avoid duplication, to foster cooperation and make sure that
very man and dollar render the utmost service possible.
The month of April will be devoted to 'making
the facts of the survey known to America; in the week of
April 25th -May 2nd, will come a united simultaneous

of a country this country is to be.
