In a recent issue you printed an Associated Press dispatch from Berlin in which it was stated that the Christian Science Wednesday evening meetings were stopped for that week, and that Christian Science centers had been raided by the police.

The dispatch went on to say that this drastic action was taken by the police because of Rudolph Hess's flight from Germany and his affiliation with occultism; also that the religion of Christian Science and theosophic and anthroposophical organizations had been classified, apparently, as occultism.

Please allow me sufficient space in your column to affirm that Christian Science is not connected with occultism in any way, but is based upon the teachings of the prophets, of the Master, Christ Jesus, and of the apostles, as recorded in the Bible. Therefore, Christian Science is not anthroposophy, which is defined as "a spiritualistic and mystical doctrine, derived mainly from the philosophy of Rudolph Steiner (1861-1925)," a German philosopher.
