APPROPRIATIONS AND ESTIMATES

FOR 1914
QITH the first of April the new year of the

American Bible Society opened. The most
important appropriations for this year have
now been made. These appropriations were
made by the Board of Managers after a

careful estimate of the receipts which the Society may reasonably anticipate, from a comparison of the receipts of the immediately preceding years, and after due consideration of the urgent needs of the work at home and abroad. In no case are they adequate to the work that should be undertaken. They show a marked decrease from the appropriations of a year ago, and are very far short of the pressing needs of the field, whether in the home land or abroad.

The home appropriations, in order to be a true and complete review of the Society's work in the United States, should have added to them the expenditures of all the Auxiliary Societies, which we regret we have not the data satisfactorily to exhibit.

Many appropriations, both home and foreign, have to be made during the year as exigencies arise, and cannot, therefore, now be tabulated. The more important of these in connection with contemplated work on Versions or such work already in progress, where not included in the appropriations to Foreign Agencies, have been estimated. The following, therefore, will give an outline view of the projected work of the Society for the coming year. We trust the survey may lead to the generous support of these important tasks :
