London. Juno -The manner In which the finances of the luorabcrs of the Canadian expeditloiiBfy force are handled reflects tho greatest credit hrn those In lOiigland nisponalblo tor the nilminl.stration of the Canadian force.-" overseas. Thu financial srrangenients of hundreds of thousands of Canadians are attended to by the staff of tho Catiadian I'Hy Corps at Mil'ibnnk. London. Knglnud, and by its representatives, the paymiisters with the various units throughout liu; Itritish Isles and on acflvo' service. The service runs like clock-work and everyone of over ;>00.000 men receives hid pay on the very day of each month when it is due. The men are jiairt in cash. The pay and allowances of officers are placed to their credit in their.bank. This article will deal with the manner in which of(icor--i' financial arrangements are made. It is a great thing for n man to Jiuow exactly his financial standini;, to know that no matter where he is, his .'iionpy will be on deposit at his bank at t!ie end of each month to mee! his cheques, Thit; is the case with tile Canadian officers. Thete is never any deviation from this rule, (onsetiucntly thero is no cause to worry al)out finances through uncertainty. Xo matter whero ho may be or what he may be doing, the Canadian officer knows that ho can pre.s-ent his cheque in Krance, Palestine or Kgypt with ab.solute knowledge as to the state of hie bank account. -Vnd what^ is equally important, he knows that proper assignments have been made to his wife, or friend, or creditor, as the case may be. This relieves him of a very real cause of anxiety. When he is promoted or receive,?! a staff appointment, |he readjustment in his pay is attended to by the pay office automatically on the authority of standing, orders. Two million dollars passes through the Officers' Pay � Department per month. There are approximately four plied with what arc known na "chit" l)oolt.�. which are really cheque books, limited ns to nuhiber and amouttt. ^I'he attention and care bestowed on all matters TipperiidnlnK to Canntlinns who have been taken prisoner of war, are of special Interest. Officer prlsfon-ers are allowed to draw by cheiiuo as much as they like up to J22B. As soon as word comes tlirough that a Onnndinn officer has boon taken prisoner of war. the 15ank of .Montreal, or whoever receives the first notificallou advises the Canadian Red Cross, and parcels of food are at once sent. With regard to spending tnonoy, the demands of tho orficeis vary. Some draw �5, some .I'lo and some �20 a month. This money doe.s not go to direct to thoni, but is credited to the acount which they are permitte�l to liavc with the commandant of the tu-lernment camp. They can draw within the restrictions laid down for that particular camp. Funds necessary for dentistry, clothe.-i aiul things of that description are allowed, but even officer prisoners cannot buy food. The German people theniselvesi are unable to procure soap. Soap or bread will buy more in C.ermany, according to tho testimony of prisoners of war, than money, Mr, Dudley Oliver, -Manager of the West End Branch of the Rank of Montreal, where most of the Canndfaii officers' bttjSlness is carried ou, has always taken a very close interest in Canadian officer prisoners and has kojjt in the closest touch with them in everything concerning their interests, * The Department of Oftlcers' Pay is under the same handicap as the other departments in tho Canadian Pay Office-In tliat tho main work falls on a few e-\perts; most of the staff cannot'work with the spued of highly trained military bookkeepers. If the staff were composed entirely of healthy expert accountants, it would be reduced by nearly half. However, the fact that men who Ou ledgers relating to the pa balanced at the end of each month- just as in Canadian banks.
