Monitor Exhibits Reach the Stranger

Many thousands of strangers make their first acquaintance with Christian Science through receiving copies of The Christian Science Monitor at expositions, fairs, exhibits, industrial shows, and conventions. This has become a world-wide activity. Branch Churches of Christ, Scientist, in many countries now sponsor booths and exhibits in behalf of our daily newspaper.

At the St. Louis Mid-America Jubilee, branch churches in that area ordered thousands of Monitors for distribution to visitors. The recent Chicagoland Fair provided nearby churches with a unique opportunity to reach many strangers with our newspaper. The Los Angeles County Fair at Pomona, California, received a large number of Monitors by air each day. Great interest in the Monitor was shown at the Oklahoma Semi-Centennial Celebration. From these four fairs alone, over one hundred twenty-five thousand people took home copies of the Monitor.

Booths and exhibits have featured our international daily news paper this year in South Africa, Australia, the British Isles. Canada, and across the United States. Among these were attractive and interesting Monitor displays at the National Dairy Cattle Congress and Midwest Industrial Exposition, Waterloo, Iowa; another at the Eastern States Exposition, Springfield, Massachusetts; and one at State Teachers Convention, Baltimore, Maryland. There were other exhibits in Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, and in literally dozens of various cities and towns.
