First Church of Christ, Scientist, Vienna, Austria, writes happily that its services were not interrupted during the recent political disturbances in that country—February 12 to 15—although other religious meetings and assemblies were forbidden by the government. The Board of the church consulted with the authorities, who showed a kindly attitude and permitted the Reading Room also to remain open. The result was the maintenance of a haven, where the stranger found peace and comfort in the midst of uproar. At the Wednesday evening meeting following the restoration to quiet, testimonies of gratitude were given.

It is to be recalled that in Mexico in 1929 the Christian Science services were permitted to be continued during the time of uprising when other churches were closed. This was due to the fact that there is no personal preaching in the Christian Science church, for the Bible and Science and Health are the impersonal Pastor.
