Christian 8rUMico camp welfare
work N now Im'Iiik curried on in for
ty five army nml navy -aniiH in (ho
United Ktutrs uiulrr direction of the
Chri.sttuu Science War Relief and
Camp Welfare Committee of The
Kirst Church of Christ, SciontlHt. in
BohIoii. 'I'here are at proHont about
Hoventy men and fifteen women en
gaged in this work, the women ser
ving mainly as welfare room atten
dants. Conducted at first Independently,
the camp wellare work has merged
with the war relief work which the
Christian Scientists were doing In for
eign countries before the United
Ktutes entered the war. Kor both
these purposes about one million dol
lars have been raised.
The aim of the Christian Science
camp workers Is to be as helpful as
possible to all men in the camps,
whether or not they are Chrlsiun
Scienists, and particularly to give
assistance which may not be available
nt the time or place through any of
tho other camp welfure agencies. A
feature of this phase of the work Is
an arangemeut for keeping soldiers
and sailors In close touch with their
Cooperating with tho committee In
Hoston. there Is a Christian Science
camp welfare committee in each state
The committee In the home slate of
a soldier or sailor cooperates by mall
and telegraph with the committee of
the state in which he is camped or
stationed to form a direct and cons
tant link between the soldier or sail
or and his relatives. Thereby the
relatives are quickly made acquain
ted with needs of their boy in the
service, and he is provided with an
avenue of quick communication with
This linking of home and camp,
combined with the personal attention
of the Christian Science worker, in
the camps, has frequently been the
means of changing a soldier's outook
from one of gloom to one of Joy,
and not infrequently it has proved to
be the means of relieving relatives
of financial embarassiuent, the com
mittee in the home state making
loans for use by the relatives until
their boy In camp should be prepared
to forward money to them.
The net result, for which the Chris
tlan Science committees and camp
workers have received many commen
dations, has been a noticeable raising
of the morale of many men in the ser
vice and the development of a better
feeling at home regarding the partic
ipation of heir boy In the service.
The camp workers say there Is an
increased wilingness among the com
manding offices and surgeons to al- '
low Chlslan Science treatment for
those men who ask for it, and many
Christian Science healings have been
recorded. Recently, two requests for
Chistian Science services in hospital
wards were received by camp workers
from medical nurses v.-ho had ob
served he beneficial effects of Chris
tian Science treatment.
In or near -numerous camps, the
Christian Science committee.? have
erected substantial buildings, with
quiet places for reading and writing,
and other buildings are in course of
construction. A light touring car
has been added to the equipment of
the Christian Science camp workers
at each caosp to be used whenever
and wherever possible In assisting

Important question Is. when and where

shot gave his opinion that business Is
much more amusing than pleasure.
I suppose be meant that a man who la
In love with his work will get more
real "fun" out of It than was ever gath
ered In so-called "places of amuse
ment." Many of our pleasures do little
more for us than kill time. They do
not kill care, for It comes back again
the next morning. He Is a wise man
who more and more learns to get his
amusement out of the serious work
be Is doing. Then If he takes an occa
sional hour or day, for sport or the
"passing show," he will come back to
his real task In life to nod bis real en
tertainment. What finer art than that
of having a good time In the thing
which one baa to do? Immensely wiser
and more profoundly philosophical
than the practice of planning for the
good time afterward. Oeorge Clerke

The only special concession o officers
is that they are not required, as civil
