PRINCIPLES OF THE BOY
By Dr. W. D. BALDWIN
I shall endeavor to set down some of the fundamental reasons for
Hie Boy bcout Movement, the principles upon which this organization
stands, and why there is good reason to believe the institution will be a
permanent one and not simply a passing fad.
All other organizations for boys, as far as I know, have certain
limitations, are more or less one-sided, and do not offer the all-around
training for manhood that scouting offers if properly conducted.
Athletic organizations, such as base ball clubs, teach mainly the
physical side of life. They develop the bodies, and add to the fun of
living, and often teach good sportsmanship, which is well and good.
The schools develop mostly the intellectual side of li fe, and of course
their teachings are essential, and cannot be displaced, but only supple
mented, by what is taught the boys by their scout leaders.
, The Church teaches the moral and spiritual side.
Military organizations, such as the Cadets, teach manliness and
discipline very good as far as they go. ,
But Scouting includes a happy blending of all various means for
development ,and is carried out in a most practical way. Right living
is taught by living right; that is, for instance, instead of simply urging
a boy to be helpful to others, thre matter is followed up by asking the boy
to report on actual "good turns" that he has done. As far as possible
precept is put into actual practise.
The physical side is well represented by all sorts of sports, by hikes
to places of interest to boys, such as the mountains, the woods, and sea
shore. The element of fun enters very largely into the life of a scout,
but not, as I take it, as a bait to attract boys into an institution in order
to make them good, but simply because fun is a boy's right by nature,
and it would be unnatural and wrong to leave this element out of the
The intellectual side is represented by nature study and various
handicrafts. He is taught to observe and to use his brains in practical
No particular form of religion is taught, and the word is probably
yeldom used, but if the essence of Christianity may be defined as good
will towards our fellow men, then, in this sense, the Boy Scout is taught
tt it j i . - , , . . . .
n.-u(jiun. ne is usuaiiy aavisea 10 attend wnatever cnurcn ne would
naturally go to, but in his training as a Scout he is taught good-will
and brotherhood, which may be called religion without its theories and
; ' One of the most marked features of Scouting is its emphasis on
, discipline. The idea in America of freedom is too often confused with
license and lawnessness; there is too little respect for law and order
The true Scout learns the great lesson of obedience to and respect for
his superiors, which, when not carried to the extreme of militarism,
is very wholesome indeed. Discipline breeds loyalty and the "get to
gether ' spirit, and leads not only to greater respect for law and order,
but to greater efficiency in later life.
In these times we are all thinking of war. Conflict in life is inevit
able and good, for, by this way, the world advances but there are
right and wrong methods of conflict. As the world goes, very serious
disputes must be settled, and if not by peaceful means then by resort
to force. If the disputants have a sense of justice and fair play, are
good sports, and have good-will, there is little danger of resorting to
force; but if both, or even one, of the disputants, have not these quali
lties, then there is war. This sort of conflict, based on the idea that
"might makes right" is abhorrent to the true sport, because it settles
nothing as between right and wrong, and is contrary to all his training
m sports which is to abide by the decision of the referee or judges.
And yet, if the matter in dispute is a very vital one, both "parties in the
dispute must have this spirit of sportsmanship and good-will, or the
result is war. It often taken only one to make a quarrel. The spirit
in our country for settling disputes by force is too prevalent and is a
constant menace to peace, so that many thinking people have thought
that we are in grave danger of a French Revolution. Capital tries to
force Labor; Labor tries to force Capital; lynch-law and the spirit of
slavery is still very prevalent in the South ; etc. Arbitration agreements,
and peace alliances between nations, are all well enough, but they can
no remove the danger of resorting to "might makes right" until the
majority of individuals are controlled by the spirit of fairness, of sports
manship, and good-will.
Now it is hard to conceive of any single institution that could be
better adapted to bring about this end than the Boy Scouts. It gets
the young before their habits and ideas are formed; it takes in all races;
all religions; includes the rich and the poor; it is not confined to the
cities but goes to the towns and the country places ; and it is not confined
to one country but is rapidly spreading to all civilized lands.
The instituiion is based on a most sympathetic and intimate knowl
edge of boys, and. it certainly shows every evidence of being destined
to be a world-wide and permanent institution.

the reader to decide for himself weth
er or not it is worth his while to lend
a hand In helping to develon this snlrlt
of helpfulness, manliness, and unself

I am not the only one who had an
opportunity of seeing what the well
trained Boy Scout can do in time of
great hurry when quick errands are
required, and many other things to be
done in the nick of time. On such oc
casions it is the trained Scout, who
