"He (Shoghi Effendi) was deeply gratified to hear that the friends are
attaching such a great importance to the teaching and training of Baha'i children.
The education of the youth is, undoubtedly of paramount importance as it serves to
deepen their understanding of the Cause and to canalize their energies along the
most profitable lines. Inasmuch, however, as the national expenses of the Cause in
America are daily increasing, the members of your Committee should be very careful
not to extend beyond their financial resources the sphere of their activities. The
plans your Committee has made should not develop to such an extent as to hamper
the progress of the Temple work." (To members of Committee on the Teaching and
Training of Children, dated Haifa, April 20, 1933.)
