A correspondent writes to The Christian Science Board of Directors of her gratitude for the statement published by them in the March 24, 1934, issues of the Christian Science Sentinel, but she asks the question, "How can those who are not subscribers to the Sentinel know of the Directors' message?" She adds, surprisingly, that she knows of active workers in her local branch church who have, inadvertently perhaps, let their subscriptions lapse.

This correspondent has raised an important question. How can Christian Scientists receive the latest news from Boston, the headquarters of their movement? How can they keep abreast of the progress of their organization? The answer must be by subscribing for and reading the Christian Science periodicals which Mrs. Eddy established; and, in establishing them, she of course desired that they be read.

Many letters recently received from readers of the Monitor attest to greater, more lively interest and helpfulness aroused by that paper's discussion of world problems. The newest feature—the Weekly Magazine Section—which was started after the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Monitor, has attracted much favorable consideration from Christian Scientists and from non-Christian Scientists, and has decidedly increased the circulation of the newspaper. But, more than that, its articles have been lectured on, circulated widely, quoted from, and otherwise applied to the wider fulfillment of the duties of world citizens.
