A FIRST WORD

In order to meet a wide general demand for such information as is contained in this Year Book, it was deemed advisable to furnish it for the bodies termed and considered religious bodies by the United States Census Bureau. Indeed, it is impossible to draw any further lines of demarcation other than the distinction which is made between those evangelical bodies which are federated in the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America and the other bodies not so included.

For fuller information regarding the Federal Council, its departments and commissions, its constituent bodies and their departments, boards and committees, reference should be made to the large amount of literature continuously published by the Federal Council, an up-to-date bibliography of which appears at the end of the book. Particularly valuable books in this connection are The Churches of the Federal Council and The Social Service Year Book, 1915.

The first Federal Council Year Book is not all its users will wish it to be, nor all its editor would make it. In the next number many things will be added, some things will be omitted, there will be a better arrangement of contents, and it will be issued at an earlier date. It is too much to hope that the first effort will be found without fault; but not too much to say that it is, at least, up to date. The valuable aid of two hundred correspondents is gratefully acknowledged.

H. K. CARROLL.
