The churches of the United States
have not suffered financially from the
European war and th Increased cost
of living, nor has their ordinary -rate
of growth been reduced the past year.
They have given freely toward the mil
lions of money sent to the war-afflicted
populations of Europe and Asia,
and yet maintained their own regular
work, evangelistic, missionary, benev
olent, and educational, with undimin
ished force. The Year Book of the Fed
eral Council of the Churhees of Christ
in America for 1911, edited by Dr. IL
K, Carroll, gives full statistics, show,
Ipg that "the religious bodies, Cath
olio, Protestant and Eastern Orthodox,
had in 1916 an aggregate of over 40,-
000,000 communicants or members,
crossing the 40,000,000 mark by about
17,008. The net increase of the year
was 747,000 or 104,000 more than the
increase for 1916. In 1890 the total
religious strength was 20,618,000 so
that in 26 years following the net in
crease has, been 19,399,000 or 94 per

Protestant Increase 00,000.
Of the gains In 1916, about 216,000
were of the Roman Catholic and some
-600,080 of the Protestant bodies. Among
xne latter, ise.uuo are creaited to tne
Methodist, 182.000 to the Baptist, and
upward of 79.000 to the Presbyterian
and reformed group. The Episcopal
church had a gain of 7,0Q0, and the
i,utneran bodies of 20,000.
The 80 constituent bodies of the Fed

The 'gain In 1916 In number of
churches was small, only 117. In the
previous year, however, there was a
net loss. The smallness of the Increase
this year is due to decreases reported
by several denominations and denomi
national groups. The Disciples of
Christ sustain an apparent loss of 769
caused by faulty method of counting
in previous years; the Methodist Epis
copal cnurcn loses -68, the Northern
Baptists 33. the Northern Presbyter

The gain in ministers is 2643, which

FRANCE GIVES ITS
WAR REFUGEES GREAT
Among the Homeless Victims
Cared for Are Many Ser
bians and Belgians.
With the French Armies, March 8.
(U. P.) With nearly 1,600.000 war
refugees to be taken care of within
her borders, France today has met
and solved these problems remarkably.
While the bulk of these homeless
victims of the war come from the
invaded and occupied districts of
France, no small proportion of them
are Belgians and Serbians. All have
had the same treatment, and their
welfare looked after on the broadest
In as far as possible the refugees
have been grouped into little colonies
or cities, often a city within a city,
and here they enjoy a sort of a muni
cipal life or their own. In which all
public service such as sanitation, ed
ucation and even the providing of la
bor, are installed and administered by
the local French authorities.
France's army barracks have proved

especially adaptable for the housing
of colonies or , "cities" of refugees.
In Europe the term '"barracks" means
very much the same as the word "xort ,
in America, and indicates the large
group of very substantial buildings In
which a battalion or regiment of ol-
diers is " housed In peace time.
with the entire French army at the
front, the barracks of peace " times
are generally empty and many are
now serving Franca doubly, well in
me nousing .or ner war refugeeo.
" At Nancy the problem of the war
refugees ha been solved In an ex
ceptionally happy manner by the use
of .these barracks, and each one rep
resents a little city all In Itself. In
the province of which Nancy Is the
capital there are 80,000 refugees, and
each group of regimental buildings is
providing homes for about 6000 war
The first effor.t of the authorities at
Nancy In handling this problem was to
guard against not only the separation
pf families, but the separation of
neighbors and residents of the same
towna and villages. Going through
pne of the Immense regimental dormi
tories therefore a visitor will now find
all the residents of a little farming
community In a cluster of apartments
by themselves, and always the rami
lies with a little apartment of one or
two rooms that enables them to keep
up their family life united and rea
(Consist of Women and Children.
Naturally the bulk of the refugees
consist of women and children, as
most of the men are In the armies.
and fully half the problem is that of
the children. In the buildings used
ordinarily Uy -the regiment for li
brary, lounging) rooms and social pur-
poses, complete, graded schools have
been-established for the children
; rrom 4 to 12 years of age, tne boys
and girls, in accordance with the gen

! schools, being taught in separate

for the boys over 12 a department of

ment is found for them.

desks and other articles of furniture
with which to refurnish their homes
and schools later.
For girls over 13, 13 and 14, who
have completed the public school
course and the course In domestlo
economy, work la provided, usually
sewing. Their earnings buy little per
sonal luxuries. j
Special Attention to Mothers. .
, As France Is very much interested
In the problem of re-population, spe
cial rooms are set aside for the women
who are about to become mothers
and here they are given special train
ing for motherhood
All the aged grandmothers who
might be very lonesome in their Iso
lated rooms have a common eoelal
room where they spend the day talk
ing ,and working a little. They are
a brave lot. nearly all with grandsons
if not also wth sons at the front.
, Naturally the organization for each
one of these cities of refugees In
cludes vast municipal kitchens, hos
pitals and dining rooms. While It is
t.ot obligatory on the grown people to
eat In these It Is on the children, for
Franca has found that parents, espe
cially m the hour of common trial,
are inclined to be too lenient with
their children. All of the little tots
are therefore required to eat in the
big common dining halls.
Amusements Are Provided.
Just as the general staff of the
French armies has found that moving
pictures, concerts, lectures. dally
newspapers and plenty of good things
fxtcaslonally to eat a absolutely in
dispensable for keeping up the fight
ing morale of the army, the French
authorities' in. charge of the refugees
nave xouna . mat something- of the
kind is equally necessary in keeping
up the morale ox tne war victims.
Proper amusement for the children is
considered exceptionally important.
As a consequence, one of the largest
buildings at each barracks is set
aside and : gaily decorated for use
a cinema and theatre. Entertainments
are given several times a week.
The prefect of Nancy, who has made
these cities of refugees a special study
and hobby,-is convinced that Ms mov
ing picture show saves him the - ex
pense pf. having to employ at least two
