Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication for the Year Ended September 30, 1928

Manitoba, Canada.

Relations with the press have been excellent. Corrections of misstatements have been few, and have been readily published. Explanation given in connection with the same has been generally attentively received, and in some cases especially welcomed. The editors of city dailies, particularly, have been friendly and willing to receive correct information, not only on the subject of Christian Science, but also along the lines of medical freedom. During the epidemic in Winnipeg this fall, one daily accepted information from this Committee which resulted in a widely commended editorial allaying fear in the community.

An editorial from The Christian Science Journal was published just before Christmas in a Winnipeg daily paper, affording us timely opportunity to give the public a correct view of the significance of Christmas to Christian Scientists. Editors of country newspapers continue to quote, with due credit, from The Christian Science Monitor. The feature "Good Thoughts for Good People," compiled in this office and containing reprints from our periodicals, is appreciated not only in the newspapers in which it finds space, but by individual students of Christian Science residing at isolated points in the province. An assistant reported that these "Good Thoughts" had proved helpful to a friend in a hospital for mental cases, showing that a seed of Truth brings healing to the receptive thought regardless of conditions.
