A Bad Disposition Healed

[Of Special Interest to Young People]

Life in "boot" camp was difficult for Bob. He was homesick moody, rebellious. He turned his back upon the fellows about him and let them know he wanted to be left alone. So by the time his company was through the preliminaries and had reached its first training camp, Bob found himself the victim of his own thinking. All the boys left him out of their games during recreation periods and ignored him when boxes of goodies came from home.

It was at this point that an aunt, sensing the reaction that Navy training and discipline were having on Bob, wrote to a Christian Science Wartime Minister requesting him to call upon Bob. One morning, soon after the Wartime Minister received the letter, he found Bob lying face downward in his bunk. He placed a kindly hand on the boy's shoulder and said in a pleasant voice, "Bob, I have come to be your friend."
