Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication for the Year Ended September 30, 1929

Activity and progress have marked the past year. An ever increasing respect of our movement and a growing appreciation of our beloved Leader's original teachings are discernible in certain important quarters of the Field. A clergyman was responsible for the furnishing of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and a copy of "The Life of Mary Baker Eddy" by Sibyl Wilbur, to a public library. A King's Counsel, referring to the Nursing Homes (Registration) Act, 1927, congratulated the Christian Scientists on having received such "important statutory recognition."

A veteran medical practitioner recently remarked that he was glad to see the Christian Scientists "disseminating the light," while another doctor stated that his profession recognized that it owed something to Christian Science for having pointed out the mental nature of disease. That Christian Science is leavening public thought is conspicuously apparent in press and pulpit; in temperance, peace, and other organizations aiming at the betterment of the race, and in the improvement of public and national relations.

The newspapers of Kansas continue quite extensively to quote articles from the Monitor, indicating that our daily newspaper is growing rapidly in the estimation of editors generally. In its issue of May 31 the Herington Sun referred to the Monitor as "admittedly the cleanest and one of the most ably edited of daily publication." And on May 21 the the New said: "The Christian Science Monitor has for a long time championed the cause of a better understanding of news values. It has led the way for a better digest of the world's news instead of the gutter stuff that gets by as the doing of a great nation. Mainly as the resutl of the Monitor's campaign there is a gradual change for the better."
