Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication for the Year Ended September 30, 1928
District of Columbia.
Your Committee feels that the continued friendly contact of the office with all the local newspapers is cause for deep gratitude. Adverse and critical comment on Christian Science is not knowingly permitted by the editors of our papers. What little creeps in does so through fictitious press committees and news reports. Only six inaccurate or unfriendly references were made to Christian Science, four of which appeared in the daily newspapers, corrections for which were printed. Two occurred in denominational publications, for which corrections were offered but not published. Thirty articles from The Christian Science Monitor were reprinted, either in whole or part, due credit being given in each case. No unfriendly sermons were advertised, but an objectionable advertisement from a counterfeit organization appeared. A reply was presented, but the publisher stated he could not accept a correction to a paid advertisement. Upon the insistence by your Committee that something be done in the matter, the Publisher in lieu of printing the correction, agreed not to accept in future objectionable advertisements.
The Post Office Department in a recent bulletin has again stated that "sick leave shall be granted only upon satisfactory evidence of illness. The certificate of a physician is not an absolute requirement but may be required if deemed to be desirable to protect the interests of the service." However, Christian Science practitioners' certificates are accepted in the Postal service as they are in nearly every branch of the Government service. The Veterans' Bureau has for the first time, to your Committee's knowledge, recognized in the accounting of a guardian a charge for Christian Science treatment, and this too while the ward was a patient in a Government Hospital. In ruling on the award, a part of the instruction to the Regional Manager was as follows: "It is the policy of the Bureau to see that awards in favor of the incompetent beneficiary are expended in the interest of the ward's welfare and while people differ as to the beneficial results obtained from certain methods of treatment, it is the opinion of this service that no objection should be made to the allowance of this item in the guardian's accounting. The Court has approved the accounting over the objection of your office and has indicated his unwillingness to discharge the guardian. You are accordingly instructed to approve the accounting and resume payments to the present guardian." This ruling will stand as a precedent in the Veterans' Bureau.
