In the first place,  it is the only house of worship  of any size in the city which  was entirely planned and the erection commenced during war time.  It also has the distinction of being  probably the most fire-proof . church  in the city, as far as construction  and materials are concerned, a fact  that is borne out by having the lowest Insurance rate of any place of  worship in the central part of the•  city. It has also the advantage of  facing on two streets. Altogether, it  is an edifice of which the members  and adherents of First Church of  Christ, Scientist, can feel justly  proud. For thanks to the genius and  ability of Robert M. Matheson, the  rising young architect  who designed  THE   MAN   WHO   CONCEIVED   AND  DESIGNED   THIS   MODEL  CHURCH  ROBERT   M.'-MATHESON  Architect    '  it, this newest of Vancouver's places  of worship not only provides an  " ideal and commodious auditorium for  divine service, but also affords every  facility and accommodation for the  different branches of church work  that go so far towards assuring the  successful existence of any church in  these  times.,  The exterior of the edifice presents  a   pleasing   appearance,    the    typical  Colonial      design      being,    admirably  worked out  in a special  make of the  celebrated    Clayburn    vitrified    brick  with   which    is   strikingly   combined  trimmings     of     Haddington     Island  ^tone.     The dull red  brick is all laid  up   with   wide,   white   mortar   joints,  and    the    combination    of   the    two  colors   gives   an   artistic   effect   that  looks good at a distance and heightens with closer inspection.    The general    construction    has   been    carried  out  in  vitrified  brick, stone,  concrete  and  hollow  tile—a  combination  that  will  readily appeal  to any builder as  being   about    the    nearest   approach  possible   to  absolute  fire-proofness.

Representing   a   total  outlay    of   between   $05,000   and   $70,000,    which   the  building  committee     of     the.   church   la  ready to admit wan all wisely expended  and splendid value secured for every dollar of outlay,  the new church stands as  not  only  a  credit to   the city;:- but  also  an   enduring  monument, to  the  progres-  siveness of the local  follower;* of Mary  Baker  Eddy,   founder  of   the • Church   of  Christ,  Scientist    In  size,  the edifice  is  6C by 131 feet, occupying the fiillof the  lot.    Incidentally, it also affords by con-  «   trast a mute but eloquent tribute to the  successful   progress ■. of.   this    particular'  church locally, for it adjoins the former  church/building,   which   for   some   time  has been far too small  to accommodate  the   worshippers.    An   exchange 'of   property   was  effected and   the  new  church  .   erected on the adjoining lot to the east—  an   achievement   that   is   also'unique   in  church history.  Still another unique advantage,  which  this   new  church    possesses     is    that   it  fronts  on   two  streets,   Georgia  and   Alberni.    And   .the-   advantages    of     this  double  entry  and  exit   have  been   taken  full advantage of by Architect Matheson  In designing tlie edifice.     Entering from  the  Georgia  street  front   through   three  large double doprs with typical Colonial  arches, one finds oneself in a roomy vestibule,   faced   with   dull   red   brick   and  finished   in   white   and   mahogany.       At  either side,  flanking'the stairway leading  o o  o o  VANCOUVER'S NEW FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST, SCIENTIST  o o  o o  •first  a very  completely  fltted-up   cloak     room,   "which   with   its  ultra-modern    equipment    affords    ideal.  fac|lities for rapidly taking care of and  checking'- large numbers  of  hats,  wraps  and -clonks  of all  kinds.     Adjoining  the  cloak room   is  the  men's   retiring   room  and lavatory.   •  Cosy Quai'tera Provided  for   Church. Official*.  and  elaborately   Auditorium Is  Considered  A Model of Ita Kind.  • The crowning feature of this' splendid 'edifice, however, is conceded to be  the big auditorium, which in the matter  of the three prime requisites—seating,  lighting and heating—is considered to  be a model of its kind. For it embraces  some features distinctly new- and ultramodern  in its designing and execution.  further'along''on   the   west   side   are   The total seating capacity is S50,  which  the ladies' room and behind that the  organ motor room, wjiere. behind thick,  sound-proof walls, is housed the p6wer-  ful electric motor which drives the fan  for the organ. Further still along on'  the east side of the foyer are neatly-  fitted up rooms for the readers, the organist, soloist and the ushers. The latter room has a nicely fit ted-up wardrobe  for tlie conventional frock coats which  the ushers wear when officiating. In  the south-east corner is located tho  or children's primary--  with   its,  low    benches,  necessary equipment .for   opening   services  , :•:■ despite   the   fact  If one enters from the Alberni street  side, a short flight of steps brings one  down to the foyer,, where on the west  side at that end is another elaboiately  fitted   up   cloak  room.    Next   comes   the  primary < room,  Sunday school,,  desks and other  the little folk.  in; a building of that size , is . in . itself  remarkable. This capacity is, secured  by placing the speaker's platform in  the centre of the. auditorium on the  east side and arranging the pews in  amphitheatre style around it, thus  utilizing to advantage every foot of.  floor space. And every seat 'In every  pew gives a clear and uninterrupted  view of the speaker, due to nicely calculated incline of the floor.  li\ acoustic properties, too, it would  be hard to beat this-auditorium. That  faot was strikingly demonstrated at the  held recently,; when,  that every seat ' was  filled, even a whisper from the speaker  could be clearly heard to the furthest  corners. One thing that conduces to  the excellent acoustic properties is the.  fact that there is not a single pillar or  post to obstruct the sound or view in  the whole auditorium.;" The clear span  of C6 feet in the roof is secured by  clever use of massive steel and wood  trusses. ,: iv:.-,--.  and artistic housing that has been  given the intricate and elaborate mechanism of the grand instrument. To  the layman, probably tlie most striking  feature is the big organ case which  occupies a large section of the oast'wall  of the auditorium. Differing noticeably  from most church organ mountings,  there is an entire absence of pipes visible anywhere, yet the tonal effects of  the splendid instrument have not been  hampered in/ the slightest. This artistic result lias been achieved by placing nil the pipes in tiers of chambers  which in turn are concealed behind one  of the most artistically executed organ'  cases in the whole Dominion, specially  designed  by Architect Matheson.  To  Messrs.   Rush  &   Head   belongs  the  credit of executing the superb ornamental   plaster   finish   on     tlie     organ   ease.  The   sculpture   work     and      ornamental  fret  work  on  this  organ   screen   Is   con-'  ceded to be a masterpiece.    It is beautifully   finished    In   old    ivory.    Standing  out   in   relief   on   the  rail   of"   tho   organ  case and  immediately above  the speaker's   plaform   is   lettered   the   words' of  the First Commandment, a touch of gold  bringing   out    the   beauty   of   the .neat  Roman   lettering.    Tlie   open   fret   work  of   the   screen   gives   every   facility   for  resonance  and   sound • diffusal,   and   this  radical   departure  from   the   stereotyped  style  of  exposed   organ   pipes   has   been  pronounced  by expert musicians as  eminently   practical   as   well   as   artistic.  Decorative  Motif  Is Study  in Warm  Greys.  The organ console and pulpit rail are  in mahogany finish to "match the woodwork of the pews. The. reader's desks  are both equipped with ^Clever mechanical devices, specially designed by Architect Matheson, by which tlie incline  angle of the desk top can be'changed or  the height of the desk raised or lowered  over six inches to suit the stature of  tho  render.  Last, but by no means least, it may be  said thai a full mead of praise Is due  to fue artistic and stately decorations  of the auditorium. The 'decorative motif is very cleverly carried out as a  chiiste  study   in   warm   greys.

Iii thorough keeping with the artistic  setting given it, is the grand Canadian  made organ, which besides .meeting the  most exacting tests in tone and volume  which the most gifted musician can  devise, also demonstrates that it is no  longer necessary to send out of the Dominion for one of these monster instruments. It was built by Messrs. Warren  & Son. of Woodstock, Out., a firm that  can date its existence back to 1S30, when  it was founded by Samuel Warreri, of  whom the present head of the firm is a-  great-grandson.

And either by natural or artificial light, there is a restful and artistic  predominant note of soft, amber shade  in' the lighting effect. By day, this is  secured through the daylight entering  through the large, arched windows at  either street front of the church, as well  as a large skylight over the centre of  the auditorium. These high, full length  windows are. of light amber shaded  cathedral glass supplied by W. Holt,  glass   manufacturer   of   this   city."

The flooring of the  Georgia street vestibule is. of inlaid  brick in conventional design.  Bamp Gives Easy Entrance  from Alberni Street.  At the Alberni street entrance, owing"  to the difference in grade, access to the<  auditorium is effected by.a ramp with a  very gentle incline/ This makes .it possible to wheel an invalid •'. chair, right  into the church, off the-street if desired  without disturbing the invalidr^an advantage which it is doubtful if any  other. church possesses. The Alberni  street entrance is also finished in white  and mahogany, while an. appropriate  text in neat gold lettering is on the railing in front of the doors entering the  auditorium.  On the Georgia street side two massive but. neat stairways iead"iip to the  auditorium from each side of the vestibule. These stairways are finished in  white and mahogany', matching the rest  of the decorations. Right in front of  the main entrances on the Georgia street  end are two double doors in design identical with the exterior doors! These doors  enter upon a large roomy, well-lighted  foyer which extends nearly the whole  length of the building under the auditorium. This foyer represents one of the  very latest developments in -church design, for it not only affords an ideal and  comfortable place for ttiose impromptu  gatherings, both before and after the  service, but it also greatly simplifies the  problems of access to cloak rooms, Sunday school library, directors' rooms,  children's Sunday school, ushers' room  and other necessary accessories of any  modern devotional edifice.  On the east side of the foyer on entering from the Georgia street end. there is  boiler room where a large Gurney steam  boiler furnishes ample steam at low  pressure to make the whole church comfortable in even the lowest temperature  Vancouver ever experiences. "Further  northward on the west side of the foyer  cornes the directors' room, fitted with'  the conventional large table and also a-  large   lire-proof    vault     neatly    located  Mr. John Duck; local manager, for Farr, iat fits  opening,   as   "simply   perfect  arid  iiobiiison , &   Bird, ;^ versatile "iti-  actly the same sof.t, amber shaded rest- >' strument he''had ever played."

One noticeable feature which is sure to  favorably impress; a visitor to this  church for the first time—and especially  if it happens to be in the showery winter months—is the self-locking umbrella  racks conveniently located in both the  Georgia and Alberni street vestibules:  In these two banks of umbrella racks,  which were furnished by the Backus Novelty Company of Smethport, Penn., there  is "capacity for automatically taking care  of 000 umbrellas. There is no need to  take a damp umbrella into the churoh  auditorium and stow It under the seat.  Instead, the umbrella is simply placed  in the individual rack which automatically locks it in place and delivers a small  numbered check to the owner of the  "gamp." And no one hut the holder of  that little key-like check can open that  particular  rack and  get   the  umbrella.  This feature, together with the admirable facilities for checking hats ...and  wraps, promises to entirely obviate wnat  is often a very disagreeable feature of  attending divine service in the damp  winter months in churches where such  facilities do  not exist.  have   fully   lived   tip. to  expectations   in  exacting tests.    Architect Matheson has--  cleverly   combined   both   systems   to   secure   maximum   results.     The   fresh   air.  enters   through   a   number   of   ducts   in  the walls close to.the floor of the audi-;  torium.    These • ducts   are   located    im-.;:  mediately below the numerous radiators- 7  so; that  in   cold   weather  the  low   pres-';  sure   steam   heating  system   warms   the,-:  incoming   cold   air.    The   expulsion    of  the   foul   air   is   mainly,  through   large -  ceiling   ventilators   above   which   are   to",  be   located ' powerful   electrically-driven  suction   fans   to   draw,  out   the   foul   air. .  Sections of the large cathedral windows-  are also  arranged   to  be  opened  as   desired   from   the   floor,   thus   assisting   in  the summer  months  in  securing a constant current of fresh air.  The pews' are all of mahogany of  special design to conform with other  decorations throughout the church. Their  rich coloring gives a pleasing note to  the floor view of the auditorium, and in  the matter of practical utility they are  Ml.so remarkably comfortable to sit in.  Their workmanship reflects credit on  the Globe Furniture Co., of Waterloo,  Ontario, who supplied them.  Magnificent Organ Given  Moat  Artistic  Setting.
