Army units in Ko- rea have now an adequate number of Chaplains. Chaplain Bennett visited army chaplains in Korea and Japan in the course of a 'round-the-world tour of U. S. Army installations. Father (Lt. Col.) Joseph S. Cbmie- lewski, of the Camden diocese, per- sonnel chaplain in the chief-of chaplains office in Washington, was among those accompanying Chaplain Bennett. Before his appointment early this year to the top post in the Chaplains' Corps, Chaplain Ben- nett was chief chaplain of the Far East Command in Tokyo. During his visit to Eighth Army he recalled that "at one time there were 30,000 soldiers in Korea without religious [service." To provide adequate i chaplain coverage for troops in Korea, he said, chaplains had !been taken from army posts at i home, leaving vacancies that civili- ;an priests and ministers are filling as far as possible. Bishop James H. Griffiths, Mili- tary Delegate, declared here, that the sufficiency of chaplains in Ko- rea has resulted from a program "of robbing Peter to pay Paul" he said that in order to transfer an adequate number of chaplains to Korea many vacancies had to be left at home. "It has been insisted that prior- ity of consideration must be given to combat units in the matter of chaplaincy coverage," the Bishop said. "But~ the shortage of chap- lains is an objective fact." The shortage in numerous places in the United States is almost a project. There are military posts or stations which are scores of miles from the nearest Catholic priest. They are without chaplaincy coverage because the slots in Korea had to be filled as well as possible.
