BOY SCOUTS ORGANIZE
Each day sees something new in
Perrysburg. The latest is the
organization of a Lone Scout
Tribe, to be known as "Racoon
Tribe, Lone Scouts of America,"
with a membership composed of
some of the "live wire" boys of
the sixth grade.
The chief "Totem" of the Lone
Scouts is W. D. Boyce, of Chicago,
who originated the "Boy Scouts
of America" movement in the U.
The Lone Scouts resembles the
Boy Scouts in its principal fea
tures and includes in its member
ship boys who, on account of be
ing under twelve years of age, or
who live in rural districts, are un
able to be members of the Boy
Scouts of America.
Each tribe is limited to twelve
boys, but more than one tribe can
be, organized m the same com
munity and the various tribes can,
if they so desire, co-operate with
the other tribes.
Their motto is "Do a useful
thing each day," and the object
of the Lone Scouts is to promote
PLAY TO BE GIVEN AGAHST
For the benefit of the large num
ber of people who failed to secure
seats for play given by members
of the Luther League, Wednesday
and Thursday of last week, it will
be given again next Friday eve
ning at the town hall, November
14, at 8 o'clock.
This play has proved to be a
grand success and those who were
fortunate enough to get a seat
found it very interesting from
start to finish.
"The Triumph of Love" is said
to be the best homo talent play ever
given in Perrysburg. Each one
taking part has proved most effi
cient in handling his or her role.
Besides the play itself the music
is well worth the price of admission.
Come early and get a seat !
Owing to the limited time before going to press last week,
the Journal could not show the result of the election in a sum
marized form. Nevertheless, in order that the citizens may see
at a glance just who was elected and who wasn't, we are pleased to
give the final count in each precinct, marking total votes cast for
each candidate and placing a star () before the winners:
