Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication


A bill was introduced in the House which was an "act to provide for programs of health instruction in all elementary and high schools." This bill was passed, and then signed by the Governor of the state. Our exemptive clause in this bill reads as follows: "Any pupil who objects to provisions in this act on constitutional or religious grounds shall not be required to submit himself to the specific requirements or requirements to which objection is made when his constitutional rights will be violated, providing a statement of such objection signed by a parent or guardian of the pupil is presented to the district school board."

Splendid co-operation has been extended by newspapers throughout the state. One newspaper which has Portland connections published our fourteen lectures in full. Out of town there were eleven full reports and thirty-three of shorter length. Forty-eight newspapers in the state of Oregon published one hundred and seventy-six reprints from our daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, while one very small newspaper printed sixteen per cent of the total number used.
