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.
