Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

One newspaper, the Progress-Enterprise, Lunenburg, has printed voluntarily several religious articles from the Monitor. The editor of the paper often has as many as three articles copied from the Monitor, notably those relating to peace. Several reprints from Nova Scotia publications have appeared in the "Signs of the Times" column in the Sentinel, and each time a fresh marked copy has been sent to the editor of the original paper.

The "exchange for advertising" plan, whereby a subscription to the Monitor is obtainable in any place where there is no Christian Science church, has been successful. Oftentimes when an editor accepts the offer he later becomes a subscriber, and many letters of appreciation are received telling of the great value of the paper. Twenty-three editors in Nova Scotia are using this plan. One editor wrote: "The more I see of The Christian Science Monitor the better I like it. It is a wonderful publication." He then asked for the privilege of subscribing for a second number for his assistant editor. The Times, Waterford, wrote, "Although not a Christian Scientist at all, we value the Monitor as a newspaper carrying the ablest writers of any paper in the world today." Another wrote, "The Monitor is a credit to its managers, editors, and all connected with it, and its editorials are an education in themselves." One other said, "The Christian Science Monitor is a model for all papers to follow." Many are the reprints in every paper in Nova Scotia where the Monitor is read in the editorial office.
