Among the Churches

Current Notes

Montana.—There is a continued evidence of fairness toward Christian Science on the part of the newspapers in the state. This is made manifest in their willingness to report items of interest which have been offered them for publication. Our own newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, is doing much in molding public thought in this state in regard to the world conflict and other matters of public concern.

During the past three months there has been a vigorous campaign of medical propaganda manifested in newspaper articles, women's clubs, and public gatherings. The committee on publication has tried to meet this situation by having published in the newspapers articles from our periodicals which would tend to offset this propaganda. This office has secured the regulations for contagious and infectious diseases in every city and town in Montana, and has furnished each church, society, and practitioner with copies of these regulations. The state board of health knows that all Christian Scientists in Montana have these regulations, and has knowledge that Christian Scientists are cooperating to hinder the spread of contagious diseases. This board also recognizes that Christian Scientists have some rights which cannot be infringed upon.
