The organization of the boy scouts
In Rock Island Is practically com
pleted so far as the preliminaries are
concerned. At a meeting of the ex
ecutive committee held yesterday
steps were taken for the appointment
of additional scoutmasters to take
charge of the boys. The commis
sions of F. W. Walsh and William
barker as masters have been re
ceived and these gentlemen are now
ready to enroll their troops.
Bosy living in the west part of the
city should report to Mr. Barker for
instructions as to the formation of
patrols and for admission as tender
feet, while those living in the vicin
ity of the high school will report to
Mr. Walsh. Other masters in the
east end of town, and on south bluff
will be commissioned as soon as possible.
Younc Men Wanted.
Here Is a chance for men who are
willing to work with the boys to do
some good service. The committee
would like to hear from -any young
men who are willing to take up the
work as scout masters and who are
willing to be commissioned. Any
such are requested to report to H.
S. Cable, or to Secretary R. C. Snied
ley at the Y. M. C. A. The work
is most interesting and will not re
quire a great deal of time. The
scouts are to be divided up accord
ing to location, neighborhood groups
being made into patrols.
In the course of a few days the
committee-hopes to announce a pub
lic meeting for boys, at which the
scout movement will be fully and
clearly explained and an opportunity
given for the boys to enroll. Sam
ples of the uniform and of badges
and equipment will be on exhibition
at this time and the whole will be
