According to a new joint ruling of the United States and Canadian censorship offices, newspapers, newspaper clippings, or any other printed matter cannot be sent from the United States and Canada to a neutral European country after September 1, 1942, unless they are sent directly from the firm which publishes them.

This restrictive measure is deemed necessary to national defense, since it is believed that such clippings could be used for the transmission of code messages from the United States or Canada to spy centers in neutral European countries.

The ruling means that in the future a reader of the Christian Science Sentinel or of any other publication issued by The Christian Publishing Society will not be able to forward either the whole publication or a clipping from it to a friend or acquaintance in neutral Europe.
