I am thankful to you, that
you helped the fresh air camp
get their good food, gym mater-
ial, and that you have a big
camp, to let us have a chance
to pick berries, and( have a
chance to see all kinds of birds,
trees and animals. I like to play
and fish in the Patterson lake.
We have swimming twice a day,
and we have a lot of good things

"I firmly believe," said Homer
Grafton, general secretary of the
Student Christian association and of
the Presh Air camp, "that one of the
greatest goods the camp does is the
actual saving of lives by teaching
the 'boys to swim. The number that
leave without learninga is quite a neg-
ligible percentage. Again, most of the
boys are sickdy and undernourished

be proud of, for it is one of the finest
