Jane Addams, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Helen Keller...

Times Herald

Jane Addams, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Helen Keller are referred to in your issue of April 16 as having been chosen America's "three greatest women" in a nation-wide poll conducted by a prominent magazine.

With all due regard and honor for the distinguished achievements and service rendered by these outstanding examples of noble womanhood, I wish to call attention that in the said poll there were chosen twelve women instead of only three as mentioned in your paper.

It is also interesting to note that the woman who received first place was Mary Baker Eddy, whose contribution to the world is in the field of religion, she being the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, by means of which great numbers of people the world around have been and are being healed of both sickness and sin. In connection with the founding of a world-wide religious movement, Mrs. Eddy established an international daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, which is accorded a high rank in the journalistic world.
