A Christian Science program was conducted from Station WEAF, New York City, on Sunday, March 29, 1942, at 1.15 p.m., by Mr. Daniel W. Gleason of New York City. This program was given under the auspices of the Committee on Publication for the State of New York and had the approval of The Christian Science Board of Directors. The soloist, Arthur Davies, was assisted by a staff organist.

The program opened with a solo, "I am Thy God" by Caro Roma. Then Mr. Gleason read an address substantially as follows:

Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and rights of assembly and petition are some of the privileges set forth in the Bill of Rights, the first ten Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America. We may not all be familiar with the exact wording of the Bill of Rights or realize how far-reaching and inclusive our constitutional rights are, but we all know through daily life what they are. We pursue our daily course without thought of questioning or challenge from anyone, as long as our activity is not in opposition to or interfering in any way with the general welfare. Yes, we go about enjoying the freedom which has been won through vision and sacrifice.
