T. H. Tarbet, 4th and Benton, Big Spring, Texas, July 6: "During May we had a short meeting with Brother R. E. Griffith of Eunice, New Mexico, doing the preaching. He did an excellent job and a total of 17 came forward. Since the meeting we have had additions weekly. From May 1 until now there have been 39 additions-12 of these by primary obedience. This is better than usual for us. in fact the work has been better in every respect since our debate with the Baptists during the New Year holidays."

Luther G. Roberts, 2110 W. Second Ave., Corsicana, Texas, July 6: "A husband and wife were baptized yesterday at the West Side church here. With a membership of 187 in the church there were 187 present for Bible classes yesterday morning. Of course, some of these were not members and some of the members are "anti-Bible class," at least, in practice. The church building has been completely air conditioned with refrigerated air conditioning. The summer meeting of the church is to be conducted August 9 to 16 with Jack Hardcastle of the College Avenue church, Lubbock, Texas, doing the preaching. I am to preach in a meeting with the Pursley church July 26 to August 2. Then I am to be with the church in Loveland, Colorado, where Gorin Rutherford is the regular preacher, August 28 to September 6."

W. Earl Mansur, 241 E. Arlight, Monterey Park, California, July 4: "The meeting in Comanche, Oklahoma, resulted in two baptisms. Interest and attendance were the best in several meetings I have held there. When in the Los Angeles area we invite you to worship with us at 536 N. Poplar in Montebello."

Louie M. White, San Marcos, Texas, July 9: "We have been laboring with the church in San Marcos for about three months and are very enthusiastic about the growth of the Lord's cause here. We have had 21 responses to the invitation including 10 who came for baptism. Brother James Fowler of College Station, Texas, will be with the church here in a meeting and will also assist with the Vacation Bible School from July 26 to August 2. I will be with the church in Knippa in a meeting from July 12-22."
