field of endeavor.” The succes-
ful prosecution of the war ef
fort; a promotion of good will
and fellowship throughout the
post; the improvement of work
ing conditions and facilities; an
outlet for social and recreational
activities, and the relief of civil
ian personnel in emergencies are
some of the aims of the club.
Any civilian employee on the
post is automatically a member
and, at present, there are no
dues. The treasury already
boasts a modest surplus derived
from the organization’s two
social functions, and plans are
afoot to open a clubroom or re
creational hall in Bend.
“We are all set,” said O’Don

need a name for the organiza
A prize of ten dollars is offer

“However, there is another
kind of training that is just as
important as physical training.
This training to which I refer is,
‘Training the Soul of Faith in
God.’ Put the faith of God in
your men, and you will have a
soldier. Without that faith, a
man lives in • fear. God created
the ground upon which Camp
Abbot is located. He created the
men that are training here. He
gave us our soul, and the power
to think. He is the only one who
knows when you will die; or
when I shall die. If God can
create a machine such as man
He also has the power to save or
let that man be destroyed by the
enemy. All the training that I
can get here at Camp Abbot, or
any other training camp, is not
going to bring me back from the
war without the Grace of God.
