Eight Christian Science lectures are planned for the penal institutions during the present lecture year. At the first lecture, which was delivered in Sing Sing Prison, there were three hundred inmates present, and great joy was expressed by many. The second lecture will be given in Auburn Prison.

An open meeting in the interest of prison work was held in First Church of Christ, Scientist, Pleasantville, New York, in which the Christian Science Prison Committees for Work in the Prisons in the City of New York and in Westchester County united with this Committee. Many prison workers were present, and the harvest truly was great. Another open Prison Committee meeting, in which the state and city Committees will unite, will be held on Friday evening, November 8 [1936], in Second Church of Christ, Scientist, New York City.

There have been testimonies of healing received which tell of deliverance from hatred, despondency, selfishness, tuberculosis, wearing of glasses, cancer of the stomach, clogged intestines, lumbago, blindness, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
