Item of Interest
This column has already noted the Christian Science exhibits at A Century of Progress Exposition, which closed on November 1, 1934, after a fruitful season. Their most interesting features to visitors were the unit devoted to Mrs. Eddy, the graphic portrayal of the Editorial policy of The Christian Science Monitor, flashes and sketches showing the interior of the new Publishing House in Boston, and the Snubs and Waddles units which delighted children and adults alike. A souvenir Snubs and Waddles booklet achieved the recognition of being one of the really sought-out remembrances of the Fair.
As we gather the sheaves of reported blessings from this undertaking, certain of them stand out as highly gratifying. They include incidents of healing, of the overcoming of prejudice, of the dispelling of misconceptions. Many visitors expressed gratitude for the privilege of "proper rest facilities" in the Reading Room of the Monitor Pavilion, rest which was more than physical rest because it included the opportunity for spiritual refreshment.
When the Pavilion was opened on May 27, 1934, for its second season, between seven and eitht thousand people entered the building that first day, most of them to examine the many interesting exhibits, to ask questions and gain information. The highest daily attendance was on Children's Day, May 31, 1934, when over twenty thousand visitors were present, with not the slightest damage to any of the exhibits, some of which had fragile parts exposed. The attendance at A Century of Progress, and, consequently, at the Christian Science exhibits in 1934 was much less than during the year of opening, yet the 1934 attendance was very gratifying. During the two years the guests at the Monitor Pavilion totaled well over nine hundred thousand. In 1933 at the Hall of Religion approximately three hundred thousand entered the booth of Christian Science exhibits and in 1934 at the Hall of Social Science nearly one hundred thousand entered the booth sponsored by The Mother Church and maintained with dignity and cordiality by the Executive Committee for Christian Science activities at the Exposition.
