This column has told its readers little of late about the progress toward completion of the new Publishing House. But The Christian Science Monitor has mentioned from time to time the occupancy of various sections by the departments assigned to them.

Those who are looking forward to visiting Boston in June will find the building completed, with the possible exception of the globe room. This room is a new and unique development. Its period of preparation could not be so well foreseen as could other features which are not new. But progress is being made in the construction of the bronze framework to which will be affixed the glass depicting on its wide surface the map of the world.

There will be plenty of new and interesting things for visitors to see in June. While Section "A" is occupied by the Publishing Society and all departments are functioning there fully, except the sales room, which is temporarily located in the Reading Room of The Mother Church at 60 Norway Street, there are a few rooms not yet completed nor occupied. The Library of The Christian Science Publishing Society, recently occupied, is a room paneled in English oak and with a capacity for many more books than are now owned, as was set forth in this column in the issue of March 3.
