Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

As time goes on, less and less misrepresentation of Christian Science is found in the press. In the English papers during the year one letter of correction only was addressed to the editor, and this he very kindly published, although in a footnote he stated that no misrepresentation had been intended.

Articles, quotations, and pictures reprinted from The Christian Science Monitor appeared ten times in the English press, and of this number the greater proportion were found in the Buenos Aires Herald. The paper was responsible for an article, the opening paragraph of which ran thus: "I came across a copy yesterday of that model newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, an . . . intriguing journal which you cannot just idly skim and cast aside, because it isn't built that way. It is a superstition in the profession that The Christian Science Monitor . . . contains plenty of good, solid meat. So I sat and read until I found a couple of columns I hadn't noticed before." In replying to my letter to him, the writer of the article further commented on the Monitor, "Perhaps I don't have to tell you, that newspaper men universally have a wholesome respect and admiration for a paper which manages to be so interesting, so up-to-date, and yet so entirely free from objectionable features."

The two English papers continue to advertise the services of the two branch churches in Buenos Aires and to print the title of the Lesson-Sermon and the Golden Text from the Christian Science Quarterly. Similar information is published in German, in the Christian La Plata Zeitung.
