Extracts from Letters

[From Welfare Workers]

"Among the first instructions given to our workers are those to the effect that while they are employed by one of the committees of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, they are not to consider it to be among their duties to spread the doctrines of Christian Science, but that they are placed in the camps on the broad basis of service to all, regardless of denomination.

"Among the most important duties of these welfare workers is that of making The Christian Science Monitor available by free subscription to any officer or man in the United States service. In some establishments where the men are not located sufficiently long to permit of subscriptions being properly entered, a daily distribution is carried on by our workers to different points in the camp, these points usually being designated by the officers, but as a matter of policy this committee prefers to have the subscription method followed, as it is particularly desirous to avoid any appearance of a hand to hand distribution of the paper.
