Christian Science The subject of the lesson-sermon n First Church of Christ, Scien- ist, on Sunday, Feb. 22, was: Mind." The golden text was: "Who hath cnown the mind of the Lord, that ic may instruct him?" (I Cor. 26). Among the citations which com- H-ised the lesson-sermon, the fol- owing were from the Bible: "And Moses said unto God, Be- lold, when I come unto the chil- ren of Israel and shall say unto hem, The God of your fathers hath ent me unto you; and they shall ay unto me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I Am That I m: nnd he .said, Thus shall thou ay unto the children of Israel, I \m hath sent me unto you" (Ex 13, 14). The lesson-sermon also Included he following passages from the Christian Science textbook, "Sci- nee and Health with Key to the >criptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: "Mind is the I Am or infinity . . . \llness is the measure of the in- mte, and nothing less can express 3od. . . . The scriptures imply that Joel i.s all-in-all. From this it fol- ows that nothing possesses reality or existence except the divine lind and His ideas ... He is all in- lusive, and i.s reflected by all that s real and eternal and by nothing Ise. He fills all space, and it is im- ossible to conceive of such omni- wsenco and individuality except s infinte spirit or mind" (pp. 336, 31 ) * Merrilyn Hecht Harpist In Youth Orchestra Of Greater Chicago Miss Merrilyn Hecht, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Max Hecht, Park Boulevard, is pictured in the Qraflc section of yesterday's Chicago Tribune as harpist with the Youth Orchestra of Greater Chicago, which holds rehearsals each Saturday. Over a hundred musicians, mostly from Chicago high schools, makes up this musical group. "Merrilyn Hecht has to leave Freeport before daylight Saturday mornings to attend the rehearsals," says the Tribune article. "The requirements arc stiff. To be a member, u person must have genuine talent and must be willing to work hard." The term, Kangaroo court, was brought, to America by Autsralian "forty-niners" during California's great gold rush. F. H.

"A Yardstick for Radio Advertisers" was the subject of his talk. Mr. Taylor, who has had experience in analysis and sale of radio time in both small one-station markets and In national agency operations, explained the use of various types of present-day surveys to determine the effectiveness of radio as a local and national advertising medium. "Local 'patron Impact'," he said, "can now be accurately estimated." "The existence ,ot a station does not guarantee an audience," Mr. Taylor said. The audience, he explained, is the result of a number of factors, including provision of the station and the means of being heard, the combination of programs and the desire of listeners to listen.
