public recognition to tbe Boy Scouts
movement. Recently, several boys of
the Boy Scouts were chosen from each of
the five wards of Greater New York and
given a free trip to all our national

to acquaint the boys of their country.

scholarship to a deserving slate scout
every year. These are rewards paid for
services rendered to tbe public.
Of what help the uoj Scouts nave been
