afternoon, the 5th, and talk to us
about scouting. Dr. Hurt also con-!
sented to present the first class badges
to the first class scouts in the

A Message to Parents
*y Clirk E. Schurman, former editor j
boy has a course which only
one bo^ in twenty has the privilege
of choosing?he has chosen to become
one of the Boy Scouts of America.
You have unquestionably a \
right to be finely prcud of him for
this. He is one of the 400,000 boys
out of 10,000.000. What you have
giVen him of birthright, of .ove of
out-doors, of the principles of right
living, and of the goodness to be of
use to his fellow men, has bone fruit,
already, in this enrollment of his in
iDo you realize that it is almost his
first wholly free choice? He went
TfcSturally and obediently to your
church, with you. All of us who are
-_ o y.q. or!qr} -fnr that, and i
CCUULiuasceio - - -
regardless of our religions, we unanimously
encourage scouts to adhere
to the faiths of their fathers.
I He went naturally and obediently to I
- sfchool. All of us who are scoutmasters
want scouts to appreciate school,
to continue in it as long as possible,
and to be thrifty of their educational
resources. But he came to the scouts, i
asked you if he might, pi his own desire.
Because you have a boy who is one
in more.than twenty, a lion and because
he has undertaken this hunt

Of course he is your baby. We understand
that, because most of us are
fathers ourselves. But he is a boy,
now. He is not a little man; nor is
he something merely in process of
manufacture for some ultimate purpose.
He is himself, a citizen, with
obligations to his home, his God, and
his country.. One of these which fond
parents try to bear for him is the obligation
to earn his own way as a
i scout; to earn his own equipment.
We have found, doubtless you have
noticed it, too, that a uniform makes j
a bow carry himself better, expand
his chest for more pure air, and use
both his feet to stand on.
We have noticed, too, that an
earned uniform lasts better than
more expensive clothes bought from
the family treasury. Incidentally it
is conducive to the physical activity
which builds a rugged body.
The ownership of sufficient camping
equipment is within any plucky
scout's own earnings if he has a
streak of stick-to-it-iveness. It will
enable him to spend much time out
of doors, withoiit risk to his health
and with positive benefit to it.
The ownership of compass, signal
apparatus, fire set, etc., develops selfreliance.
The acquisition of a good
ax and knife, their safe use and care,
has a wholesome effect upon character!
It is like play with good com
So we believe in cameras, as a
means of improving; observation and
appreciation of the beautiful things
in the world.
And we believe in sensible first aid
equipment, to ?o on the hike, and to
be constantly at hand in the home. !
Equally we believe in sensible
books, and in a purely boyish magazine
of infotmation, outdoor craft
and adventure such as Boys' Life.
These are tools of scouting, the common
interests of these 40,000 out of j
10,000,000 boys. They characterize!
the boy scout, as^a crap game or burg-.
lar kit, or stolen auto characterizes
the underworld. i
You can help by helping your boy
earn or make the things which will;
make his scout work interesting, successful
He Doesn't Want to Fail
This being his first big independ- \
e^t adventure, and it is a big adven-:
turp, a taste of success in it will whet
his appetite for success in school, for
usefulness as a citizen and for prep-'
aration for his coming duties in
church, business and at home. His
succers is measured in one direction j
by advancement in his test. You will j
find a little study of this Handbook \
for Boys very inteersting, yourself, j
As you do not Want him to be a ;
quitter, tide hini/over his discourage- j
ments and speak the slight word of |
appreciation which will stimulate him j
to be prepared, by becoming a first j
class scout j
Attendance at meetings, loyalty to j
h-"s patrol and troop, and the practice j
of self-reliance on hikes, are factors j
in life success. No scoutmaster wish- i
es to interfere with any boy's home I
duties. Rut the privilege of being j
a hundred per cent scout is one that j
is precious to your boy, and so to j
you. May he arrange his home work !
t<> approach that standard and be a!
hundred poihter in both places.
The fajnily of another of my boys
used the sc-out meeting as a check
room for their offspring for several |
weeks and then calmly sent an ey- j
cuse for his absence as follows: "Wei
are going to" the movies and know fie j
would rather go there but he wants j
his patrol credited with this excuse!"
Oh, well, the kid may come out all
'right in spite of his handicaps.
You and the Scoutnia*ter
I once received a note from a fahter
which began: "'Since we have
been good enough to let Louis join j
the troop will you please?" I would- j
All scoutmasters are volunteer
leaders of troops. They have no axes
to grind. They do not earn a penny.
They are the men who take time
out of their own busy, successful
lives to introduce boys to the scout
life and supervise their numerous activities.
No boy does any scoutmaster
a favor, ever, by attending his
troop. There is warm and fine comradeship,
the^e is often a keen appreciation
by a scoutmaster of the leadership
qualities in some of his boys,

sacrifice- is on the part of the scoutmaster
and the Mrs. Scoutmaster.
The chances are that your boy'g
scoutmaster is pretty much a father
to several orphans in his troop. He
greatly merits your acquaintance,
your friendshipxand support. He can
not take 32 more nights away from
home to visit those 32 boys as easily
as you can slip down to a troop
meeting with your boy to be introduced
proudly by the boy. Then let

You'and the Boy's Good Turn
The good turn is a voluntary thing.
Its magic vanishes when it is bartered
like wag?s. One school teacher reported
that her scouts were very poor
students, while another in the(?ame
school said hers were the best in the
room. A little questioning msi-iwacu |

of any boy, but on one occasion a? a j
stimulus, had said to one boy at a j
time, "I know how hard you are try-J
