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

Northern California.

The press in Northern California, on the whole, continues to be fair. There is a growing cordiality on the part of editors. Publishers rarely print anything intentionally which would misrepresent or seek to injure Christian Science. But occasionally press dispatches, reports of sermons, articles by contributors, and even an occasional advertisement contain reference to Christian Science, which require correction. In such instances, editors almost invariably acknowledge their responsibility by printing letters of correction submitted by this office.

There has been a marked abatement of critical and unfriendly comment on Christian Science in the medical and the religious press. A considerable number of editors are printing short reports of our Lesson-Sermons. These reports are complied in this office under the authorization of Judge Clifford P. Smith, the Manager of Committees on Publication. They give the subject of the Lesson-Sermon, and contain brief citations from the Bible and from Science and Health. Usually they are printed on the page containing the reports of other sermons. Reprints from The Christian Science Monitor continue to in in an ever increasing number of newspapers. Editoriial praise of the Monitor is frequent, the following being a typical comment: "The editor reads many church and daily papers and declares The Christian Science Monitor is the best daily that comes to his desk."
