TranscriptJohn Westbrook -- May 29 '42

Mrs. Frank Smith -- Chm. Committee
in Social Action -- Cent'l Church

Westbrook -- go ahead with Barrow's
offer -- let him form a team -- get
what they can.
Business men in my church
wouldn't justify any large ex-
penditure by G.C.C. on any one
N. Church. Better let such a church die.
Allen Chapel will have to resort
to part time ministry. [illegible characters crossed out] Can't
really afford to support a personage[?].
