MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY DECEMBER 31 1959 Cw Thi Pper Tour On Bible now in 1000 languages British society dedicated to mission work By CECIL NORTHCUTT New Yxrk Herald Tribune News Service The Bible is now printed in approximately 1000 languages and about onehalf of the known tongues throughout the world At the headquarters of the Foreign Bible Society here 320 different translation projects are at various stages of completion and organization The society began its work in 1804 and its first venture in translation was the Gospel of St John into Mo hawk for the Red Indians in Canada Its distribution is a mixture of sale and gift ac cording to circumstances and it lives on voluntary subscrip tions One of the biggest recent ven tures is the translation of the four Gospels into modern Rus sian published a few months ago It was produced by a group of Russian scholars in Paris who tried to give Rus sian readers a modern version while retaining some of the tra ditions of the older text THE SOCIETY is not allowed to distribute freely in the So viet Union but the new version is known to the authorities of the Orthodox Church and has been welcomed by them One of the difficulties

groups of people are now appearing regularly in the lists of Bible translations One just published is the Acts of the Apostles for the Guerze speaking African people in Guinea who number 100000 The demand comes from the 1000 people among are Christian of whom only 400 can read So far they have managed with mimeographed copies of St Mark and St John and 10 NOW COMRADE FOR WCRC THOSE TAINTED OR
