Items of Interest

Readers may well consider the fact that there are many kinds of advertising which appeal to various types of individuals in the many walks of life. A few critics of Monitor advertising may unthinkingly expect its columns to uphold an absolutely religious standpoint. A reader may have scruples about the advertising in its columns of something which he himself does not use, but which is of definite aid to a fellow being. A changed point of view reveals the fact that Monitor advertising, being a service, endeavors to meet the legitimate needs of all readers, all peoples—in other words, to inform them of the availability of the products they may desire or require, and of reputable firms offering them.

It should be realized that the Monitor's pages containing news and advertising are not edited from the standpoint of our religious periodicals and are not intended for the consumption solely of Christian Scientists and those interested in Christian Science. The office of the purely religious periodicals of our movement does not belong to a daily newspaper. Otherwise the Monitor's policy would be restrictive or impractical, and we should fail to realize the great field of usefulness lying before our paper—a paper which says to all, "here a little, and there a little" of the human need supplied, till the verdict for the laborer can be reached, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
