Christian Scientists representing the four churches in St. Louis and those of Kirkwood and Belleville, and hundreds of strangers to the cult, taxed the capacity of the Odeon yesterday afternoon [Oct. 3] to listen to a lecture by Judge William G. Ewing of Chicago. Long before the hour for the lecture to begin every available seat in the house had been taken, and many stood in the foyer during the address. The meeting was the denomination's contribution to the religious services of the day, marking the opening of the centennial celebration. Judge Ewing was introduced by John D. Johnson, the St. Louis attorney, who said that he was not a Christian Scientist, but that he wanted to be. "I have progressed far enough in the investigation of Christian Science to say that it is one of the greatest discoveries of the last century," said Mr. Johnson. "Christian Scientists are all good citizens, for Christian Science means good citizenship."
