Lndvig 8. Bale Aocepts Important *o
sitton With the Boy Seouts
Ludvig S. Dale yesterday received
from the Chief Scout executive in New
York city an appointment as national
field commissioner of the Boy Scouts of
America. Mr. Dale will go to New York
within a few days, and, after conferring
with the other national officers, will be
gin his new duties, which will take him
into all parts of the United States.
At Cambridge, Minn., Friday night
Governor Eberhart, who is chairman of
the Ramsey County Scout council, heard
of this appointment, and said:
"I am delighted to hear that this
honor has come to Mr Dale, for he has
proved in Minnesota his mastery of
Scouting and his remarkable ability as
a Scout organizer and official. And it is
especially fitting: that such an appoint
ment should come to the Northwest,
where Scouting has reached its finest
fruitage, and it should be added that
the great success of the movement here
has been due in no small degree to Mr.
Mr. Dale is known personally to more
Boy Scouts in Minnesota and adjoining
states than any other man, and all the
boys admire him. Beginning under the
auspices of the Pioneer Press, Mr. Dale
in February, 1911, toured Minnesota,
Wisconsin and North and South Dako
ta, informing the leading citizens what
the Scout movement was, and how it
would benefit their boys, and later or
ganizing in each city and town a Scout
council of adults and one or more
troops of Boy Scouts. In all, he form
ed at least fifty councils and 200 troops,
having a membership of approximately
After Mr. Dale had been at this work
for a while the National officers of the
Scout movement in New York recog
nized the excellence of Mr. Dale's work
by giving him an appointment as North
Has Kong Experience With Boys.
The new national field commissioner
has had long experience in work with
boys. At Willmar, Minn., where he was
graduated from the Willmar Seminary,
Mr. Dale had a boys' cadet corps with
which he was signally successful.
When the Scout movement was intro
duced in the Northwest through arti
cles in the Pioneer Press, Mr. Dale con
verted his cadet corps Into a Scout
troop. He was so successful with that
that he had calls from citizens in many
other towns in Minnesota asking for
his assistance in forming Scout organ
izations in those towns. He assisted
in such work as his time would permit,
and later, upon recommendations which
came from many sources, the Pioneer
Press put him in the field to assist those
who had been attracted to the move
About fifteen months ago Mr. Dale
decided to go to Europe to see how the
Scout movement was progressing there,
various newspaper and magazines arti
cles having told of the remarkable suc
cess of the organization there. He had
letters from Governor Eberhart, who
had helped him materially in his work
in the Northwest, and from officers of
the National Council of the Boy Scouts
of America, and in his travels in Nor
way, Sweden. Denmark, Germany, Hol
land, France, England, Scotland and
Ireland, he came in close contact with
the national and local officials of the
Scout organization and learned all the
details of their plans and methods.
Mr. Dale will be back to Willmar Fri
day to make his last visit before going
East to accept his new appointment.
He will travel In the South during the
winter, and on the Pacific coast next
spring. He considers Willmar as his
home town and will give our city some
good advertising wherever he goes.
We understand that his new position
carries with it a salary of $2,000 and
