New Prices for Our Periodicals

During the past two years publishers of newspapers and periodicals have been called upon to meet a situation unprecedented in the history of the publishing business, due to the increased price of paper and other expenses of production. According to a recently published statement by the president of the American Newspaper Publishers' Association, "most of the newspapers of the country have been compelled to increase the subscription price of their papers as well as their advertising rates, in an attempt to obtain earnings sufficient to carry on their business."

The cost of the paper used for The Christian Science Journal, the Sentinel, Herold, Quarterly, and pamphlets has practically doubled, and the present market price of the paper upon which The Christian Science Monitor is printed shows an increase of about 75 per cent over its cost two years ago. The Christian Science Publishing Society has adopted such legitimate economies as are compatible with the excellence of its periodicals, but cannot of course lower the standard of quality or reduce the size of its publications, as some publishers have felt the necessity of doing to help in meeting the situation.
