Scouts Say Farewell When
Leaving Wailuku for Hawaii, Herb
ert Young, Scout Master of Troop III
has resigned his commission. At the
last meeting of his troop held at the
Settlement on January 26th all of the
boys were present and surprized him
with a farewell "feed." The usual
scout meeting was held and then Mr.
Young was requested to step into the
next room where he found a table well
set with food gotten by the boys.
Speeches were made by the scouts and
Commissioner Mathews and with
three rousing cheers the boys wished
their former Scout Master luck in his
new work on Hawaii.
Before the close of the meeting Mr.
Paul Low was unamously chosen
Scout Master to succeed Mr. Young.
He will be assisted by Henry Shim,
who was promoted from Senior Patrol
THE HUNDRED PERCENT
The proudest scout In the troop Is
the one who wears the hundred per
cent duty pin. This pin is loaned the
scout for one month only. At the end
of that time he must return it to the
Scout Master who will award it all
To gain this pin the scout must at
tend all the meetings, conduct him
self in a true scout-like manner, both
at troop meetings and outside and he
must be recommended by some other
scout. A record is kept by the troop
Scribe and at the end of the year the
Bcout whose record shows that he has
had this pin the greatest number of
times in the year will be presented
with a gold pin which he may keep.

in a little time to a most substantial
amount. The public schools through'
out the country have shown the wond
erful things that can be accomplished
by concerted and directed saving, and
suggests the great good that will ac
crue to children and parentB, the
school and the teacher, and to the en
tire community. The same thing can
be true of the Boy Scouts, whose keen
enthusiasm and vigorous effort have
been demonstrated along other lines,
and we have reason to believe they
would adopt the thrift idea as enthusi
astically and as vigorously as have
the school organizations. Surely the
hope for the future lies in the fact
that the country is awakening to the
: need for inculcating the principles of
thrift among her young people, for in
order to get the best out of life, Am
ericans, of succeeding generations,
must learn how to save wisely; and
that community -whose children are
learning and practicing thrift, is sure
to become, thrifty and prosperous as
the children grow up and assume the
affairs of their fathers. Character is
made and strengthened with the over
coming of useless spending.
The saver who puts aside even the
smallest sum, creates by so doing a
definite asset which has a value be
yond its intrinsic worth, for it helps
to establish reputation, and is the
badge of character, integrity and good
sense. Systematic saving in saving
banks by the Boy Scouts would en-
courage thrift and teach the principles
of business to many an American boy.
k is not the amount that is saved
. that is so important, it is the forming
of the saving habit that is vital, for
when the idea of thrift takes hold, the
harvest is a life-long habit of economy
To encourage thrift among the Boy
Scouts of Maui. C. D. Lufkin has sup
plied Scout Masters with special pass
books and has provided special pass
books for Boy Scouts which will be
gladly distributed under the Boy
Scout rules, to any individual Scout
who is enthusiastic to be come a sav
er. This applies equally to the banks
in wailuku, Paia and Lanaina.
