Training Camp Activities
. . . !
Nearly n million and a half young
men are now, or will soon be, in!
the various training ramps of the
mainland., These men will have
left bvhind all the congenial atitl
helpful surroundings of their homes'
ami friends, clubs, ehurclies, libra-i
ries, theatres, moving pietijres, etc.
and they will miss thescj things,
and will suffer for the ncedjof them.
Some will be discontendctl, some
wiil fall into evil ways foe thick 'of
them. 'j I
To meet this lack a ccrtimission
has been appointed by the Secretary
of War on Training Camp Activities
and this commission has; formulat
ed ami-instituted a plan bf cam
paign to meet the situation
The Y. M. C. A. and the knights
of Columbus are the main" igencies
that will undertake to halidle the
situation under the commit ion, the
former representative of .tht Protes
tant interests and the latter' of the
Roman Catholic. They will work
together i n the organization of
clubs, recreational facilities, social
entertainments, etc. '
From nine to fourteen recreation
al and social buildings have been
erected in each cantonment which
include nn auditorium seating 3000,
which will also be supplemented by
many tents. i
Among other things the recrea
tional outfit will include a piano,
motion picture machine, phono
graph, olliee supplies, stationery,
reading matter, etc. all free. l
There will be a regular moving
picture service, which involves the
presentation of eight to ten million
feet of film a, week, ; i
There will be mass singing, ama
teur dramatics, etc , a weekly news
paper "In Trench and Camp" for
each of the thirty-two camps. '
The American library association
has undertaken the important task
of furbishing books, magazines, etc,
as well as the librarians to handle
them. The idea is to have a good
book within the reach of every sol
dier whenever he wants it.
Much attention will be given to
recreative athletic work, with spe-i
eial stress laid on boxing and other
hard, competitive sports. "Each
camp is to have a cooperative store,
where the men can buv the hundred
and one little things that the gov
ernment does not furnish. Any
profits accruing from these stores
are to be expended by vote f tncj
I men. J
I Camp music is to be developed in
, each cantonment with trained lend
er" in command who have already
, accomplished wonders in the way of
mass music Of one of these song
evenings, in which six thousand
participated, the commanding olli
eer says, "It was the greatest thing
I ever listened to."
Finally there will be a fully equip
ped modern theatre building in
each of the sixteen national camps.
A committee of theatrical managers
is assisting in the organization of
the talent for the program to be
given in theso buildings. The ad
mission .charge is to be fifteen,
twenty, and twenty-five cents,
which is supposed to barely cover
Along more distintivcly educa
tional lines courses in conversation
al French, and in French geography
will be given so that any soldier
can, during t h e time of his training.
The Log of a Whaler

in whaling and trading ships, and

During those old rough-and-ready
dars when American ships
were on every sea
port, Capt. Gelett was a promi

in every part of the world, from
lighting lions and savage negroes
in Africa to bears in Kamchatka,
mutineers on board ship and whales
