SCOUTS RETURN FROM
' - ? " i
Troop 1 has just returned from its
highly appreciated and thoroughly
enjoyed summer camp. Our camp i
this year was at "Oakland Farm,"j
the country place of Mr. Walter I.!
Herbert, who, with the rest of his fa- j
mily, made our stay as complete in
fun and pleasure and good times as it(
possibly could be. Their thought-1
fulness and consideration had a great j
deal to do with our enjoyment of the
We left Newberry on the morning!
of Thursday, the 8th, our tents and
camp equipment being carried by the
Newberry Hardware company's truck
which Mr. Eskridge kindly offered.
The boys, with their personal luggage,
were taken out in the cars of
some of the boys' parents. In high
spirits we made the journey out, and
arrived on our camp site quite early
in the day. After unloading we set
about choosing sites for the tents,
and this being done, we prepared to
erect the camp. We worked hard
ana by the time the mess call for supper
was blown, we had the camp in a
fairly presentable condition. A de-;
lightful repast was served under the
suprevision of Mrs. Julien, the wife
of our worthy scoutmaster, and we
are happy to state that she amply fills
the bill as director of cuisine. Since
we were all tired, we retired early
and just dropped off to sleep when
reveille sounded. " That, of course,
meant get up, and with many a yawn
and stretch the fellows turned out
in time for assembly. Breakfast was
a repetition of the delicious fare and
delightful service of the night before,
so much for that?sh-h! The
S. M. asked for a second helping of
"those molasses" and the scribe managed
to get his thirteenth biscuit!
We completed the arranging of
camp and erected a bulletin board, |
upon which were posted the rules and '
regulations of Camp Herbert. One j
said: "There shall be no swimming
except at specified times and then on- ^
ly under the supervision of good j
swimmers;'' while on the other side j
of the board was the camp program'
and on this was the line, "11:00-l 1-45 !1
?Swimming and water sports." The (
camp Ingersoll (Squeak Caldwell,;
take note!) proclaimed the fact that1

Mr. Old Swimmin' Hole! If you'll
take the word of an eye witness and |
accomplice, the water's fine. We;
went in swimming twice a day, once j
in the morning and once in the even-!
ing. After the day's work and play ]
were finished we would gather around
the camp fire and engage in singing
the old reliables, such as "My Bon-'1
nie," etc., together with the scout j1
songs. This gave rise to the4 forma- j
tion of two singing societies (on the |'
programs, "glee clubs"): The Bull- 1
frogs, and the Cat's Ankles. The hit- j 1
ter might be more aptly named the ;
Cat's Meows, since I happen to be a!.
Bullfrog. I leave it to yon, gentle |!
reader, isn't there more music in a'
Bullfrog than in a Cat's Ankle? :

sevices again, which we snail certainly
do if we are in that community
again. Returning: from church we
found that the visitors had begun to
arrive and they continued to do so
through the afternoon. They, of
course, brought "civilized" eats to
the poor hungry boys in camp, and
the way those eats went was astonishing.
The visitors complimented us
upon our camp for which we wish to
say "Thank you."
The next week we were favored by
a visit from several Rotarians, Messrs.
Hal Kohn, Lad E-skridge, Foster Mar
tin, Earl Babb, ice cream, lemon
cakes, and lime cola. We were glad
to see them all, and especially so
when it was announced that we were
not only to partake of the good things
then, but we possibly would be able
to go to the mountains on our next
year's summer camp. Oh, boy! This
announcement was greeted with a
cheer for the Rotary club. That night

' Surrounding the hill is a stretch of

foot upon the historic place, and took
' possession of it in the name of the
president of the United States of
America. We had accomplished
i what we had set out to do and that
is all that can be expected of any
i one. A second expedition was formed
a few days later for the purpose
: of excavating, and this expedition returned
in triumph with a trophy in
the form of a skull with horns which
they declared to be that of no less a
personage than Sitting Bull, but
: which I strongly suspect once bore
the name of William Goat.
i Our camp has been a decided success
from every viewpoint. It has
accomplished its purpose of advanc|

every one much farther. Mr. and
i Mrs. Julien have made things as nice
for us as they possibly could and we
are aware of the work on their part
I which made this possible. The camp
i has made the boys know each other
better, and has created friendships
which will not be easily broken. It
has strengthened our determination
' to live up to the Scout oath and law,
and we know that while there may be
others, no camp can occupy quite the
position in our experiences as the po,
siron held by Camp Herbert.
