The Boy Scouts of 'America are

the most important features Is the
fact that the Catholics are taking up
; the movement and have a priest as a
scoutmaster. . Governor Frear has re
viewed the scouts and said that he re

Kansas City, Missouri, are planning
to take a trip on horse-back to Wash

charge of J. S. Mendenhall, ; field
secretary of ' the Boy Scouts of
America. Every scout will carry on
his own mount "a small tent in which
will be wrapped necessary cooking
utensils and bedding. The route will
be carefully planned in advance. The
scouts wiM spend some of their nights
on the trip with Boy Scouts in other
cities. Where there is no Boy Scout
organization the travelers -' will camp
out. - '"
'The trip,of course, w ill have great
educational value,'" the scout leader
says "The boys-will see more of the
country than is possible to see mak

will he made for them to meet the
president and to - be shown through
