Item of Interest

On February 12, the California Pacific International Exposition at San Diego, which had its successful first season from May 29 to November 11, last year, reopened its doors. So useful had been the Expostion that it was decided the second season should continue until September 9, 1936. When inviting representatives of The Christian Science Monitor to reopen its building, officials indicated that they wanted it very much, and that they recognized its influence for good upon the Exposition during its first season.

Housed in an attractive cottage provided by the Christian Scientists of California and near-by states, and by friends elsewhere, and especially sponsored and attended by church members of San Diego County, the Monitor exhibit was visited by over one hundred and three thousand persons, not counting the twenty-five hundred responsible for its conduct. The number of visitors to the Exposition as a whole being nearly five millions, one can deduce that more than one in fifty visitors to the Exposition had called at the Monitor Building, where visitors were cordially invited to inspect its many interesting features.
