An Ambassador for Truth and Love

Comparatively few men will intentionally divert thought or word from the truth as they understand it. The great variance in the opinions of public men as to what should be done for the correction of national and world disorders is mainly due, then, to the different concepts held concerning a given situation or condition and of the supposed result that changes would bring. An instrument having a far-reaching effect in world affairs through its careful presentation of the world's happenings is The Christian Science Monitor. As an international daily newspaper, it is well equipped to present news correctly and to carry it to every part of the world. It conveys salient information concerning the rest of the world, and gives prominence to the various important phases of the world's activities and happenings that have to do with general world welfare. Thus the diplomat, the politician, the business man, and the chief executive of a nation may have before him in one publication a comprehensive picture of the important events of the day.

Usually newspapers mirror the views or political leanings of some one person or group of persons. The Monitor, on the other hand, does not promote the views and policies of any one person or group of persons; it has no political platform to advance, no political ax to grind; and it is conducted with the definite aim of setting forth the important news and upholding right. On this basis its purpose is to give an unbiased, clear, unfettered, and truthful account of world happenings.

It is generally conceded that the newspaper is a potent influence in molding the opinion of the great reading public. To this vast multitude, what the newspaper presents, forms a picture of the outside world. Because of its known adherence to the truth, its unfettered upholding of right, and its nonpolitical nature, The Christian Science Monitor carries weight, and can have only a beneficial effect on the thoughts and actions of those custodians of the people's welfare who are among its readers. In the Monitor, men of large affairs find a record which they can accept with an open mind and without discount. The fact that the truth about current affairs is presented to readers of this daily newspaper constitutes a leaven that is sure to have a wholesome influence on important decisions and acts.
