In behalf of Christian Scientists, I wish to protest to your readers against the following paragraph in your column headed, "The Moaning Waves": "There are many people who believe that their minds govern their lives, but they would be insulted to be called Christian Scientists." Doubtless there are many people besides Christian Scientists who believe that their minds govern their lives, but usually they are intelligent people who would not be insulted to be called Christian Scientists. In fact, there are more than a few people who are not Christian Scientists but who wish they were.

The paragraph in question reminds me, by contrast, of the different comment made about a year ago by Dr. Hugh Cabot, then and now dean of the medical school of the University of Michigan, but during the war a distinguished medical officer in the United States Army and previously a well-known physician of Boston, which was publicly reported as follows: "There is no question but that a great many people have been made useful citizens by the doctrine of Christian Science."

We'd love to hear from you!
