The question of changing the glass in the church windows was freely discussed, every one present being of the opinion that the amber glass was very trying both on the pastor and the congregation.  On motion the matter was left to the committee on care of church property Mr. Sanborn being added thereto, and the committee was further authorized that if a change in the glass could be made not  to exceed $25.00 the committee was authorized to have the work done.  The matter of ventilating the church was also discussed by Dr. Jackson, and was left with the committee on church property to investigate and see what could be done in the matter and the probable cost.
