Peter Butler reports from England that the special Kiddie Porn booklet (based upon the articles written by D. Paul Graunke) has had an excellent response in Britain. It was mailed to M.P.s, schools, and the Press. Apparently about 60 M.P.s have already responded, including Margaret Thatcher, Edward Heath, and the grandson of Winston Churchill. (This booklet is not available else-where at present. It was specially adapted to British Consumption.)
Lesson 12 of the CORRESPONDENCE COURSE has gone to press today and should be available within 4 to 6 weeks. We're glad that project is finally completed. Richard Sedliacik, John R. Schroeder and Ron Nelson have all worked very hard on it.
The Doctrines of the Worldwide Church of God booklet, based on the STP project, has also gone to composing today. We are giving this booklet top priority. It will be sent automatically to all church members. It is chained to numerous booklets and reprint articles which expand on the subjects summarized there in. The international areas will have to edit out some of these chainings due to the inavailability of some of the literature advertised. Those responsible for international chaining and editing should check the manuscript carefully for this.
Results are beginning to come in on the February PT. The largest number of comments came in on Mr. Armstrong's feature article "What Every Reader Needs to Know..." Pro comments slightly outnumber cons on that one. The "Speaks Out" column and the "Personal" were the next highest mail pullers, though Jon Hill's article on tithing drew much favorable mail.
Please announce to your congregations that the June/July and October/November issues of the PT will be combined due to continuing financial restraints.
