In your "As It Appears to the Cavalier" column of June 11, there is a reference to Christian Science which requires correction.

Christian Science does not teach that the cure for war is a mere denial of its existence; nor does it instruct its adherents that they may get rid of any undesirable condition by such a method. It is the understanding of God and His laws which enables the Christian Scientist to cope successfully with any untoward situation. Through obedience to the law of God human thought is liberated from discordant qualities such as distrust, envy, greed, and hatred—all of which promote strife—and mankind begins to express the higher qualities of justice, unselfishness, honesty, and kindness. In the degree that this transformation takes place in the world-consciousness will the brotherhood of man be recognized, and we may confidently look for the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy, "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more."

However, much remains to be done before world peace is established, and the Christian Science church is helping to hasten that day. Through its international daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, a better understanding is being established between races and nations. The Monitor not only refuses to print anything that could provoke racial passions or cause ill will and misunderstanding between nations, but it is playing an important part in the movement for world peace by its advocacy of the Pact of Paris, of further naval and land disarmament, and of other measures looking to the banishment of war.
