Religion: Up $1,523,303

This week the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. (the Northern body) issued a bit of pleasant warm-weather reading for its 1,953,734 communicant members. During its last fiscal year the church took in $40,551,108, an increase of $1,523,303 over the year before. Per capita donations rose $1.04, to $21.24. Presbyterian membership dropped 21,112 souls, but only on paper. At Eastertime 25,000 people usually join the church, and the past fiscal year, ending last March 31, did not include Easter.
