Attending the National Baha'i Convention in Wilmette, II1., April 29 to May 2 was Mrs. Virginia Martig, Shelton. Of a total of 171 delegates from the United States, 5 are apportioned to the electoral district of Western Washington. The main purpose of the annual convention is to elect the nine-member administrative body. the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States, for the ensuing year. The four day session gives the elected delegates the opportunity to consult with representatives from all parts of the country and to hear the reports of various departments and committees of the national institution. Delegates and observers learned that the Faith had more than doubled its membership in the United States during the past year. A large number of these new believers represent minority groups, over 20,000 in the South, mostly blacks, hundreds of Spanish speaking persons and scores of American Indians. A basic goal of the Baha'i Faith is to unite the diversity of all the peoples of the world, not in sameness but rather the coordination of diversity for the mutual benefit of all. This past year the Baha'i International Community was granted consultative status to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. It was learned that the new Baha'i House of Worship now under construction in Panama City will be completed by December of this year and the dedication of this edifice will take place in the Spring of 1972. At present there are such Baha'i Houses of Worship in Africa, Australia, Europe and the world-famous structure in Wilmette, site of the National Convention. Around the world the Baha'i Community has grown from a few hundred centers in 35 countries in 1921 to over 46,000 centers in 31 7 countries, territories and islands at present. New National Baha'i Assemblies were formed in seven countries this year, five in Africa, one in the Pacific and one in South America bringing the total of these bodies to 101. As a member of one of the Baha'i School Committees in this country, Mrs. Martig was present on May 28th for a pre-convention meeting called by the National Baha'i Schools Committee for the purpose of bringing together representatives of all ten of the School Committees for deliberations on standardizing curriculum and procedures for the various Schools. The Northwest Baha'i Summer School will be held at Seabeck Conference Grounds, June 26 to July 1. The Baha'i Faith is an independent world religion. It originated in Persia. Baha'u'llah, Prophet-Founder of the Faith died in 1892 in the Holy Land. EQUALS :i:i:i:i Two Year * $1,000.00 * When Compounded Daily !iiiiiii!~ :!iii!}i!i?i!i)i! ,., ,....,. ,,... , ,..,...
