Items of Interest

Hundreds of newspapers, both in the United States and her territories and in countries abroad, have published items complimentary to the new Christian Science Publishing House. Included in the list are farm journals, labor organs, university student publications, and various trade and business periodicals. The architect's sketch of the front of the new Publishing House appeared in a number of rotogravure sections of newspapers, including one in the Egyptian dialect and several foreign-language papers in the United States, among which was one in Greek having a wide circulation in this country and abroad. Countries outside the United States represented by these publications included the following: Africa, Australia, Brazil, Britis Guiana, Canada, China, Dutch East Indies, Egypt, England, Federated Malay States, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Palestine, Panama, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Straits Settlement, Sweden, Switzerland, Uruguay, and Wales.

Some of the newspapers spoke of the building as typical of the standards maintained by the Christian Science organization; and others commended the work being done at this period, in part to relieve unemployment conditions. The following are selected from these newspaper accounts:

"The amazing growth of Christian Science in our day is one of the interesting religious phenomena of the modern religious world. It is one of the few, if not the only religious sect that can maintain successfully a large daily newspaper, circulating all over the United States. The publications of the sect, including the daily newspaper, have grown so enormously that a new publishing house will be erected in Boston at a cost of three million dollars. The building will occupy a whole city block, or fifty-eight thousand square feet of ground."
