Item of Interest

Under the auspices of some of the Christian Science churches in Chicago, several talks on Christian Science are being given in the auditorium of the Hall of Religion at A Century of Progress. The first of these talks was given on July 28 by Professor Hermann S. Hering, C.S.B., a member of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship. A second talk by Professor Hering followed on July 29. The lecturer spoke especially for World's Fair visitors. The auditorium was very well filled, and much interest was manifested by some who had known little or nothing about Christian Science.

This lecture hall is used by various religious denomination, many of which have exhibits in the Hall of Religion, where the Christian Science church maintains a booth. To those who feel that interest in religion is waning, it may be significant to learn that about ten thousand people pass through the Hall of Religion and examine the various religious exhibits daily. At the booth maintained by the Christian Science church, courteous attendants are ready at all times to answer questions about the Christian Science literature which is displayed and which may be purchased there. The item in the exhibit that attracts most attention is a glass case at the entrance which contains the Bible and Science and Health opened to corresponding passages defining "I Am" (see page 588 of Science and Health). It is reported that a large number of young people enter the Christian Science booth and earnestly read some of the texts displayed in the cases or on the walls.
