'in order to relieve every minister of

'themselves for It, for each man needs,
* '(.aside from his uniform, a typewriter
outfit, communion sets, bymnbooks, a
bicycle or motorcycle and some cash,
t The committee on chaplains has
been supplying these wants, but at & J
j. 'inaxtmum of only $300 per man. The
'National Service Commission asks for
- la. minimum of $500 and a maximum
'of $1,000 per man and Is asking that ;

i Campside Churches.
gSt ' .' j in addition to the great work of the j
chaplain in the camps the National j
(Service Commission has helped to susjtaln
fifteen "campside churches" In
L % -.towns and cities near camps. It has
'maintained twenty - six workers In
FfiK; "- these places. The results achieved
- are said to solve many of the most
S& .perplexing problems affecting the
LMll'- .moral and social side of the soldiers'
. and sailors' lives. These "campside
' J churches" are open always to the boys
5*1^ *and*the pastors of them are counsel'joes
and advisers of the boys and aft
i ' '-.ivery popular among them. At these
Pjg ifccampslde churches'" young people,
p, Ttoose from the camps and from the ]
frowns, meet in wholesome social inter- j
(course. The Influences and associations

pl^r t The "camp pastor" has gone from 1
I j 'the Army. He went under an order of
the "War Department although the
1 'chaplain remains. The National Serv^
[w* lee Commission supported seventy-nine i
. - "camp pastors'* and would like to have j

Import them.
"These men did great work.** said
Dr. Ottman, "work that lives In the!

Bte " | -"Did the boys respond to the 'camp-!
pastor's' work?"
v ; "The question may find an answer,"
ly said Dr. Ottman, "In the fact that In.
one ' embarkation camp 5.000 before
IP 'going overseas were converted under
a' Presbyterian 'camp pastor.' No man,
.was more devoted to his work. This
