"The Canadian Family. In Bulletin No. 128 we dealt with evident trends in the size of Canadian families. It presented a fateful picture. Here we publish a statement by Professor Elton Scott of Bishop's College pointing out the dangers and challenging our Church people, and Canadians generally, to face the issue. We thank the author for his article, and `The Mitre' (of Bishop's College) for its courtesy in allowing us to republish it."
"Sex Instruction in the Parish. Intimately related to the well-being of family life is the matter of instruction regarding sex. Since we believe that this should be given in a spiritual setting and that religious sanctions are not the greatest safeguards of the sex life and of the family, the clergy are necessarily interested. .... The Reverend Gore Barrow, rector of Schreiber, who formerly had useful contacts in this field while in a parish in England, has written this article at our request. We are grateful for his assistance". -- [Foreword].
