A lecture on Christian Science was given at Elmira Reformatory in May. In a letter regarding the lecture, the First Reader at Elmira says: "We had about seven hundred boys present out of a population of approximately eleven hundred. Our lecture took the place of the usual 'health talk' and the three reels of movie shorts which precede this talk. No compulsion of any kind was used by the officers in charge. In fact, it was announced that those who came expecting the usual Sunday program might retire to their rooms if they desired, and only about one hundred availed themselves of that permission."
An officer in one institution said, "I don't know anything about Christian Science, but I know that the boys who attend your services do their work well, obey the rules of the prison, and do not give us any trouble." Another officer, during a conversation, referred in glowing terms to The Christian Science Monitor, which, he said, "is the best and most informative newspaper that comes into this institution." He added that the Monitor was used in the "current events class, the printing class, the English class, and in the editorial department of the institutional newspaper."
