FOR LACK OF A BOY SCOUT
The papers recently gave consider
able publicity to the fact that a cer
tain physician lost himself In the
woods while on a hunting expedition
un,l was found two weeks later, tiearlj
starved with a raw partridge In his
hand, because he had no match) to
start a lire. It la Interesting to notice
how frequently in commenting upon
this Incident the newspapers have
pointed out that "the doctor should
have bad a boy scout ulons. to ho ■•
him how to make a fire by friction and
find his direction by sun and stars."
"By reason of the scout movement,
the next generation will be better pre
pared for such emergencies," observes
the Salt Lake City News. "To laj the
man suffered for lark of a match Is to
misstate his case. He suffered nlmost
to death for lack of fire, and he lacked
fire because we have come to depend
so much on matches. What he needed,
In the absence of matches, was a
knowledge of some earlier way of mak
ing fire." Some knowledge of the arts
of primitive man are desirable for all
who would seek the primitive wilds,
This Is one of the great Ideas of the
boy scout organization; The finished
scout, left In the woods, could make a
lire by rubbing sticks, could make a
wigwam or a hut, anil could estimate
th, genera] direction by his watch with
the aid of the sun. The boy scout or
ganizers did not discover these things,
but they discovered that they could
still be used In an age of great arti

OMAHA SCOUTS PREVENT WRECK
Two hoy scouts, .Jumes Caldwell and
Clarence Swlngholm of Omaha, iv
centlj prevented a serious train wreck
l>> prompt action and presence of
mind. Coming home from a hike they
discovered thai a large tree had fallen
dlrectlj across the track of the
Omaha-Chicago passenger train which
was already whistling around the
bend only a few hundred yards away.
Tearing off the red sweater of one of
the boys they ran along the track,
waring the danger signal frantically.
The train was halted and doubtless
many lives were saved. "Nothing to
it." said Scout Swlngholm when peo
pie tried tO overwhelm the lads with
praise. "We just did a good tuni and
that's what boy scouts are for." The
tree was one which some bee hunters
bad evidently felled and ran away
from In dismay when they saw It had
fallen In BO precarious a place. Tin'
Contrast between the conduct of tin
boys and that of the men speaks for

GIVES BLOOD TO SAVE CHILD
. Charles Hopper, a sixteen-year-old
boy scout of Troop 4, Terre Haute,
Id all probability saved the life of
a twenty-two-months-old baby girl by
giving v pint of his own blood for
transfusion, us .1 voluntary sacrifice.
The child's mother had already given
two transfusions, but was too weak
to give more, and the child's life was
despaired of when young Hopper came
to the front.
