CROP Fund Drive Being Planned Church agencies of overseas relief and rehabilitation have long been' concerned with the problems of! providing adequate supplies of food, j fiber, and agricultural assistance in view of overwhelming world needs. Actually they have been faced with the difficult and sometimes arbitrary decision of just who are the most needy persons where masses of the population are involved. The churches and others have worked through cooperative associations and programs . . . one such being Church World Service ... in order to get needed supplies evenly and quickly distributed. The program in America, involving some 75,000 volunteer workers in more than 500 counties has resulted in over $18,-900.00 worth of food and assistance since the start of the effort in 1947. Newton County workers, related to the several churches, together with others who also see the need for sharing our surplus, have been making necessary plans for the canvass in the county. Sunday, November 19, has been designated as CROP Sunday, with the effort continuing during the following week. Mr. Lawrence Stewart and Rev. J. S. White are serving as co-chairmen of the County Board, with Mrs. Stephen McKinley, Secretary. Further details will be available, in- formational material is being distributed throughout the county, and workers are scheduling routes and canvassers.
