STATEMENT OF SUE WEDDELL, EXECUTIVE SECRETARY, INDIA
COMMITTEE, NEW YORK, N. Y.
Miss WEDDELL. Mr. Chairman and members of the committee, I bring a statement in support of the Luce-Celler bills on behalf of the Foreign Missions Conference of North America. I speak as an executive secretary of the Foreign Missions Conference, and secretary of its India committee.
Dr. J. L. Dodds and Murray Titus, who were here yesterday, are chairmen of this committee, and are the executive secretaries of the Presbyterian and Methodist Boards of Missions, responsible for work in India. They were unable to stay, and I am glad to bring this report
Mr. ALLEN. If I may interrupt for just a moment, to get a little information about what groups fit into the Foreign Missions Conference? I am asking purly for information.
Miss WEDDELL. Yes. I think that is in the very next paragraph: The Foreign Missions Conference of North America is an agency which operates in behalf of 123 foreign mission boards and agencies in the United States and Canada having work and workers overseas. Of these boards and agencies 58 have work in India and make up the membership of the India committee of the Foreign Missions Conference of North America, which we represent.
Mr. ALLEN. Will you put in the record at that point a list of those 123 foreign mission boards and agencies in the United States and Canada.
Miss WEDDELL. I will be glad to supply a list. They are practically every one of the denominations we around this table know anything about, and include practically every denomination that has work in India.
