Of Good Report

The wide appeal of the accurately and constructively presented news found in The Christian Science Monitor was illustrated in the experience of a Christian Scientist in England who left his peacetime work in 1943 to aid the national effort in a factory. He soon found that every month subversive literature was being sold by two employees to their co-workers. At first the Scientist was deeply disturbed, but he soon discovered that this attitude achieved nothing. Quietly, and one at a time, he brought copies of the Monitor into the factory and gave them to the workers. Not one was refused. Slowly the sale of subversive literature fell off, until it finally ceased. Those responsible for the sale of the undermining propaganda, finding subtle agitation failed to revive interest in it, left the factory of their own accord. Since then, the factory has been free of this influence. There have been no strikes and no loss of production.

The Monitor has been made available to the factory personnel from the lowest paid to the directors, including the office staff. Two workers have purchased their own copies of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and have become students of Christian Science.

The steadily increasing evidence of Christian fellowship being shown toward students of Christian Science is apparent throughout the Field. Willingness on the part of other religious organizations to lend their church edifices for Christian Science lectures is no longer exceptional, but is becoming general. Recently a large, centrally located Episcopal church in a southern city offered its commodious house of worship to the local Christian Scientists for a lecture for the first time in its history. The church auditorium was filled to the last row with a representative audience. Evidences of increasing hospitality and good will are found not only in the United States but in many parts of Europe, especially in Great Britain.
