The matchless parable of the prodigal son, recorded in the fifteenth chapter of Luke's Gospel and familiar to all Bible students, not only grows dearer with repeated perusal, but with every reading unfolds fresh beauty and added inspiration.
At a Christian Science Wednesday evening testimony meeting an aviator gave a testimony in which he pointed out that by being assigned, contrary to his desire, to what in aviation parlance is termed "back-seat duty," which is considered inferior to piloting as he had been doing, he was enabled to realize his divine birthright of dominion over untoward conditions.
One feels that when the aviator takes his place at the controls of his aeroplane preparatory to making a solo flight across the ocean there is one thing, at any rate, of which he must be positively certain.
Thanks, thanks for the wings of thought!With them may I spurn the sod;I may mount to the height of eternal day—I may rise to the realm of God:Though my heel to the hard earth cling,And though mists may cover my eyes,The pinions of Love will lift me aboveThe creature that suffers and dies.

Under the caption of "The Mighty Have Fallen," your issue of June 17 contained misleading statements and inferences relative to The Christian Science Monitor, and space is desired for comment regarding them.

I have read with much interest "Talks on Health" in your recent issue, where "A Family Doctor" emphasizes the necessity for overcoming the habit of worrying, with its deleterious effects on the health of those who indulge it.
Testimonies of healings brought about at authorized lectures on Christian Science will be published in The Christian Science Journal or the Christian Science Sentinel, when verified as are other testimonies appearing in the periodicals.
