[Christian Science Organization at Columbia University, New York City, by the Corresponding Secretary of the Organization, 1936-1937]

By invitation of the chaplain of the university, our organization holds its weekly meetings in the choir room of St. Paul's Chapel. The president of our organization opens the meetings and makes necessary announcements. He then turns the service over to a member of the Religious Program Committee, which is composed of two students who alternate each week in conducting the meetings, and who read selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. From a few steadfast members our attendance has grown until it now numbers from thirty-five to forty during the regular school year, and as many as seventy-five to eighty during the summer session. Many of these are undergraduates, though some are in graduate and professional schools and some are teachers. An informal reception is held each semester, to which are invited all those listed in the university records as interested in Christian Science, as well as all members.

A small circulating library, from which students may borrow the Bible, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and other authorization writings on Christian Science, is maintained.

Our organization subscribes to two copies of The Christian Science Monitor for the School of Journalism. One of these is clipped for the files, while the other is bound and kept for reference. Letters of appreciation from the school give proof that they recognize the worth of our newspaper.
