HAPPY NEW YEAR to the readers of THE AMERICAN Mis-
SIONARY! The past year has been notable in after the war

achievements, but greater days are ahead. The Forward Movement presents a challenge the like of which we never before have faced. This magazine always attempts to do its part in disseminating information and meeting the challenge of the new day.

1919 Achievements The First Church, Sylvania, Ohio, was the banner church last year, sending us a club of 200. Pilgrim Church, St. Louis, Missouri, comes next, with 158; then the church at New Milford, Connecticut, 126; Hyde Park, Massachusetts, 123; Whitewater, Wisconsin, 121; First Church, Meriden, Connecticut, 117; the Finnish Church, Astoria, Oregon, 111; Painesville, Ohio, 107; Central Church, Madison, Ohio, 106; Westminster Church, Spokane, Washington, 105; First Church, Bellevue, Ohio, 102; Central Church, Philadelphia, 101; North Church, St. Johnsbury, Vermont, 100; Florence, Massachusetts, 100.

1919 Testimonials The pastor of a church of 1,500 members recently said the following about THE AMERICAN MISSIONARY: “The magazine is of increasing value, not only to the home missionary who is facing conditions the magazine presents, but to the pastor of a large city church as well.”

Another pastor in commenting on the increase in his missionary contributions, said: “Our long list of subscribers to THE AMERICAN MISSIONARY is not without effect. People give as they become informed of the need."

Our Aim for 1920
To disseminate information with regard to the Forward Movement.
To discuss problems of Christian Americanization.
To be a true interpreter of present-day missionary needs.
To enlist the strong in the support of the weak.
To treble our subscription list.
