From the Field

[Extracts from the report of Christian Science Committee for State Institutions and Agencies in New Jersey]

State Prison at Trenton. It is gratifying to report that the attendance at our services here has shown a marked increase, although the number of men confined in this prison has decreased recently. A keen interest in the services and in the literature, especially The Christian Science Monitor, is manifested by the men. As a consequence, the number of Monitors being read and enjoyed here is three times what it was a few months ago. Each copy of the paper, after being read by a recipient, is passed on to another. We are fortunate in having two of the inmates who attend our services serve as soloist and pianist. A Thanksgiving service was held in the prison, which was well attended and much appreciated by the men, some of whom gave testimonies.
