Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

As a result of friendly relations established with newspaper editors, invitations were extended to this office during the past year by two editors to write special religious editorials for their publications. The editor of the Kewanee Star Courier requested a three-hundred-word religious editorial, which, after approval by The Christian Science Board of Directors, was printed in that newspaper as one of a series appearing during the Lenten season. The editor of the Canton (Illinois) Daily Ledger requested a religious editorial of about six hundred words for a series prepared by representatives of various religious denominations. This editor has requested the Committee on Publication to submit additional editorials from time to time, and has commented particularly on the constructive thoughts which were expressed in the editorial prepared by the Christian Scientists.

An interesting account of the value of the radio program was related by a man who had spend three years in the Cook County Hospital. He had been given up by the physicians as a hopeless sufferer. He was quickly healed of tuberculosis through the help of a Christian Scientist. While waiting at the hospital to be discharged, he visited each morning a ward where sixty men, supposedly in the last stages of tuberculosis, were lodged. One of the patients in this ward owned a small radio set, and as he was dialing one morning he came to the Christian Science broadcast. The man who had been healed recognized the voice of the Christian Scientist who had helped him. As the program came into the ward the patients listened, and three nurses stopped their work to hear the healing message. Subsequently this program was received every morning in that ward by an attentive audience.

A young woman who had entered this hospital as a tuberculosis patient heard the Christian Science broadcasts, and asked for help from a Christian Science practitioner. Her healing followed within a few months.
