In The Journal, May 12, page 1624, under "Physicians Wanted for Civilian Conservation Corps," it was stated that the pay and allowance of a first lieutenant are about $250 a month. A first lieutenant of the Medical Reserve Corps attached to one of these camps considers that statement misleading. While pleased with the work, with regard to the pay he says: "The actual pay that I receive is $166.47 (this includes the recent 5 per cent increase). From this sum I must pay about $15 for mess. The approximate pay of $250 referred to in the article refers only to those officers who have a dependent wife. From this sum there is a deduction of 10 per cent according to the federal economy program."
