The Field knows that most of the radiocast programs on Christian Science pass through the hands of the Christian Science Committees on Publication. In fact, all programs given from radio studios, which have to do with Christian Science, are within the responsibility of the Committees. Some of the radiocasting is comprised of electrical transcriptions, Numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4, which have been prepared under the guidance of The Christian Science Board of Directors. These transcriptions are obtained from the Manager of Committees on Publication in Boston by the Committees in various districts, who supply them to local radio studios. The transcriptions are all in the form of dialogues, the latest, Number 4, dealing with the training received by a young lad, the son of two of Mrs. Eddy's students. It shows the effect of Christian Science upon his schooling and his later career.
During three months the Committee on Publication for the state of North Carolina sponsored seven programs of fifteen minutes each over the radio in Greensboro, using these electrical transcriptions. At the conclusion of each program a short announcement was made, stating the location of the Christian Science Reading Room and cordially inviting all listeners to avail themselves freely of its privileges. As the result of a comparison of the first seven weeks during which these programs were on the air with the corresponding seven weeks of the year before, when there were no radiocast Christian Science programs, the librarian of a local Reading Room reported that exactly twice as many books on Christian Science were borrowed from the lending library during the period of the use of radio. It was necessary to purchase more copies of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" for use in the lending library. Some of the strangers who came to the Reading Room, evidently as the result of listening to these programs, began to attend the church services. These programs were made possible largely through the generous contribution of an individual donor. They were pronounced well worth the effort put forth in arranging for them.
