Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication
One of the noteworthy evidences of public recognition of our religion came during the general strike in the San Francisco Bay area in July, 1934. At that time the Petroleum Emergency Committee, empowered by strikers and employers alike to take care of gasoline rations, readily acknowledged by its action that the healing work of our practitioners was of fundamental public importance and therefore should not be interrupted. Accordingly, this office was authorized, and supplied with equipment, to issue gasoline permits to bona fide Christian Science practitioners on both sides of the Bay, in order that they might use their automobiles for calling on those needing and desiring their help, exactly as the privilege was granted to physicians.
The Committee on Publication has responded to invitations from groups of Scientists to address them. One of these invitations was extended by the President of the San Francisco State Teachers College, after a protest had been made in regard to one of the programs of the Sphinx Club of that institution, wherein a book which grossly misrepresented our Leader had been reviewed and apparently accepted as true. In response thereto the Committee on Publication read an original paper, approved by The Christian Science Board of Directors, entitled "Mary Baker Eddy and Her Work," and answered questions from the floor tje facts of our Leader's life and the history of the Christian Science church. The members of the Sphinx Club received the speaker courteously and listened with evident interest. The Committee on Publication was later the recipient of a letter from the President of the college expressing appreciation of his coming.
