Each crate contains about 200 garments. Atotal of 3,056 crates were shipp ed during the last half of the year, compared with 1,426 during the first six months.

Rapid development of the American Amer-ican Christian Science War Relief Committee into a large production agency was a suprise to the Christian Chris-tian Wartime Committee, in London, Lon-don, and put the latter to some stress to keep its organzaion and facilities equal to shipments from the United States. Now, the adjustment adjust-ment has been made and more active ac-tive almoners with adequate quarters quart-ers have been located throughout where the greatest need is apt to occur and disperses their storage. Headquarters for the Christian Science War Relief Committee Unit for Utah is located on the fifth floor of the Dooly Building in Salt Lake City where a corps of workers work-ers is actively engaged In the preparation pre-paration of clothing and other items for shipment to England. To date more than 1,000 pounds of clothing and blankets have been shipped from Utah. That interest and support of the activity is increasing in-creasing is shown by the fact that contributions of clothing and money mon-ey have been received from anum-ber anum-ber of points throughout the state and home knitters are donating their services irrespective of creed. Even a Greek boot-bla:k, whose brother was in the Greek army early in the war, does his b!t by shinging without charge all shoes handled by the Committee. The Committee is grateful for the generous contributions already received, however, more home knitters knit-ters are needed and additional support sup-port is welcomed in order that this commendable work may not bo hampered. Information as to used and new clothing that is acceptable and as to instructions for use In knitting various items will be gladly glad-ly given by the Committee upon request.
