125th Anniversary Of
American Bible Society
The 125th anniversary of th
founding of the American Bible
Society will be celebrated On May
8, when a body of people will gath
er in the City Hall in New York
City where the Society was born
that is now distributing the benp
fures throughout the world. Today
the Society's workers arc distribut
ing nearly 306 million copies of
Bibles, Testaments and rortion
printed in 237 different language
in 40 foreign countries'.
The Society prints the Scrip
lure's, for peoples of almost every
tongue, of Asia, Africa, the Amer
icas and the Paciic Islands. At
the end of 1940 Scriptures for th
Qucchua Indians of the Andes, for
Indian tribes of Guatomala, for th
more remote peoples of the Phil
ippines and for the Aymara In
dians of Bolivia, were i,n process
The Bible is playing a great part
in the establishing of friendly
neighor relations in Latin Amer
. ica. ...
War Increases Demand
the hunger lor. scriptures in
China increases continually, and the
Society has met this call at great
risk and expense. Now that much
of the work of the ereat Bible
Societies of Britain and the Con
tinent is cut off, the American
Bible Society must expand its serv
ices to fill these yawning gaps.
Whenever there is a war the
Society's records show that there
is an increased .demand for the
Holy Scriptures, amd this held
true during 1940. Special editions
of New Testaments were ordered
for the Army, Navy and Air
force. For use in the Dutch East
Indes and for war prisoners in
. Europe and Canada, Gospels in the
appropriate languages were printed.
.From an upper room of. a print
shop on Nassau street in New-
York in 1816, the Society's activ
ities have grown to fill a six-story
building on one of New York's
busiest corners, with 14 officers of
distribution in this country and
32 serving foreign countries.
Through all the busy years of
expansion the American Bible So
ciety has adhered faithfully to its
original purpose, to promote a
wider circulation of the Hoh
Scriptures, 'without note or com

To Nbrth Carolina Counties
To Our Cities and Towns . ,
This $8,149,104.76 total is in addition, of course, to federal taxes
amounting to about $7,000,000. Thousands of new jobs have been cre

of trade in North Carolina.
Social Benefits, Too
Important as well are the social results. The American brewing indus
try has promoted a vigilant campaign to protect the public against abuses,
in the retail sale of beer -a campaign to see that the reputation of the
thousands of retailers operating legally and decently is not smeared by
: the relatively few who would use a beer license to shield illegal activities.
In the past two years, for example, the North Carolina beer industry's
''Clean Up or Close Up" program has resulted in the elimination of 155
