Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication


Relations with the press throughout the territory continue friendly. Only three articles calling for correction or explanation were published during the past year. Two of these were syndicated articles originating outside the territory and the other did not refer to Christian Science by name. Where corrections were necessary, letters from this Committee were promptly published.

Four island newspapers are now receiving The Christian Science Monitor—three dailies and one weekly; and of these, three are new subscriptions on the Monitor-in-Exchange-for-Advertising Plan. Newspapermen speak in highest terms of the Monitor. The editor of one of our largest dailies says that he uses the Monitor continually, and gets more inspiration for his editorials from it than from any other single source. Many Monitor articles have been republished in the Honolulu papers. For these due credit has been given except in certain cases where items from the column, "In Lighter Vein," were reprinted without credit. When this was brought to the attention of the editor he promptly agreed to correct it. One more Honolulu paper, a weekly, this year for the first time printed a synopsis of a Christian Science lecture.
