My attention has been called to an article in a recent issue of the Herald-Dispatch in which, after stating that the government had decided to interest itself in pathological research, including the fight against cancer and other diseases, the writer said: "This will not please those who believe that disease is unreal. But when cancer develops, their belief, unfortunately, changes."

In case other persons might be led to believe this had reference to Christian Scientists, I should like to say, through your columns, that while they prefer for spiritual reasons to depend wholly upon God and His presence and power for their health and well-being, Christian Scientists are humanitarians; they are considerate of the beliefs of others, and grant them the same right which they claim for themselves, namely, that of selecting the method of treatment which they prefer.

We'd love to hear from you!
