A. A.'s Country-wide News Circuit

A.A. in Atlanta, Ga., has made great progress since its birth five years ago. The two groups are plugging for the establishment of an alcoholic ward in the big Fulton-DeKalb County Hospital soon to be built. . . . The Newark Group has moved into its new meeting quarters at 66 North 7th Street, about one block from the Alanon Clubhouse. More than 100 people were at the first meeting in their new home. Another group, known as the North Newark A.A., is growing to such an extent that they are now forming a second one. Other new groups in this vicinity are the Vailsburg and Clinton Hill. . . . Rochester's fourth birthday dinner was attended by 230 members and guests. This group has branched out into morning meetings to provide for night shift workers or others who are unable to attend evening meetings. . . . To extend the scope of its usefulness, the Middletown, Conn., Group each week invites six different guests: doctors, pastors, judges or other substantial citizens.

Two new A.A. broadcasts have gone on the air--in Dallas and Los Angeles. . . . The Cincinnati Fellowship of A.A. celebrated its first anniversary in the new clubhouse early in July. When the idea of obtaining a new clubhouse was first suggested there were numerous objections and many predictions were made of future trouble regarding the administration of the affairs of the club. Happily, none of these predictions has materialized. The financial and administrative affairs of the club are handled by elected representatives and the Board of Trustees, all of whom are two-year-old members.
