Camp Welfare Activities

From the many reports and letters coming to the Camp Welfare Activities department the following have been selected as typical of the fruitage:

A Worker reported that one of our young men in boot camp had gone to sick bay twice for medical treatment, but was not benefited. When the condition again seemed aggravated, he asked permission of an officer to see the Christian Science Worker in another part of the camp, where he was not allowed to go. The officer asked him how he thought he could be helped, when he had not been benefited by going to the doctor. The serviceman proceeded to tell the officer what Christian Science is and how it works, citing certain experiences of healing which he had had. About half an hour later he was all smiles when he appeared before the Worker and stated, "You know, I felt miserable a little while ago; but when I finished telling an officer how Christian Science 'works' and how wonderful it is, I must have given myself a treatment, for I certainly feel fine now and don't need your help after all."

A chaplain wrote of the healing of a very aggravated case of fear. Stationed some three hours' ride away, the man would catch a train to the chaplain's home each evening, beg to remain all night, and take a train in the early dawn back to duty.
