Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

In general the attitude of the press has been friendly and interested. As an instance of this, the editor of the well-known weekly paper, The Queen, in a special feature entitled "A Gallery of Great Women who Infiuenced the Past Seventy Years," included Mrs. Eddy, and made the following striking reference to her: "Though little more than a name in England during her lifetime, the twentieth century saw her the most eminent figure in America."

On several occasions papers throughout the country commented favorably upon editorials in The Christian Science Monitor, and expressed high appreciation of a special series, such as that upon "What Great Britain has done for India," and the World Achievement edition. Quotations in the "Signs of the Times" column of the Christian Science Sentinel from papers here are always appreciated by the editorial departments of the papers from which they are taken.

An interesting comment on the law was contained in a charge to a jury by the Recorder of the City of London in a case heard before him recently, in which he was reported to have said in part: "The medical profession is an honorable profession, but it has no monopoly of the healing art. ... There are osteopaths and other people who profess the healing art in various directions who have a perfect right to treat patients every bit as much as any qualified [medical] doctor so long as the public know with whom they are dealing. If the public know they are dealing with unqualified [medical] men and women the public are entitled to go to them except where various statutes say that unqualified [medical] practitioners may not treat certain diseases."
