Christian Science Board of Directors Announces Major Reorganization Board Adopts Earlier Management Structure; Monitor Channel Cable Service to Be Curtailed; Newspaper and Other Publications to Continue


THE Christian Science Board of Directors yesterday announced in a meeting with employees a significant reorganization of the management structure for the Church of Christ, Scientist, and for its worldwide publishing and broadcasting activities.
