Item of Interest

As the date for closing A Century of Progress, in Chicago, has been extended to November 12 at midnight, The Christian Science Monitor pavilion and the Christian Science booth in the Hall of Religion will continue their active participation until then.

In their report issued at the conclusion of three months' work at the Fair the Executive Committee for the Christian Science activities included an expression of gratitude to the supporting Christian Science churches and societies in Illinois and near-by states. A minimum force of regular hosts and hostesses has been on duty in each exhibit, with additional helpers chosen from among the volunteers supplied by the surrounding churches and societies. Thus, the required orderliness and compliance with rules have been assured. The hosts and hostesses in the pavilion and at the booth have, the Committee states, "stood daily in the presence of the world as living examples of Christian Science."

The attendance at the pavilion from its opening until September 22 had been over one half million, an average of more than four thousand three hundred a day. One day witnessed a total of nearly nine thousand visitors by actual count. In spite of such a large attendance there has been preserved a sense of order, quiet, and peace among the workers and visitors alike. Numerous cases of healing have been reported from those who have visited the pavilion or reading room. Many who were not Christian Scientists expressed gratitude for The Christian Science Monitor and for the harmonious atmosphere in the exhibits.
