We have knocked on 12,000 doors in two months in the negro Community alone; although the percentage of adult interest is small, we have gained 185 children who attend each Sunday. We have 130 active Caucasian children. Thus we have a combined group of 315 youngsters who will be thoroughly educated in brotherhood to lead the Church tomorrow.

Our Temple has the loyal services of three Negro and two White educators which includes a principal from the Indianapolis Public School System to guide us in this crusade.

Three buses are utilized in this great work.

Although you may be a member of another parish, you could help Universal Brotherhood tremendously by sending a contribution, great or small, to enable us to purchase another Sunday School Bus that we need immediately.
