The hundreds of thousands of boy
scouts throughout tbe country will be
greatly pleased to learn that the new
manual of the boy scouts of America
will come from the press on June 1,
and that at the same time the new

chairman, announces that all the chap
ters have been completed and will go
to the printer within a few days. The

interest to the active, growing boy. It
treats of life in the woods, games, chiv

boys. While the old manual wrs writ
ten chiefly by one or two men and
largely adapted from the manual pre
pared by Sir General Robert Baden
Powell, the originator of the boy scout
movement, the American manual has
been prepared by many men, every one
of whom Is an expert In his special line.
Among the Interesting features of the
new manual will be subjects which
never before have been treated In a
manner suitable for boys. Ten or
twelve of the ablest government ex
perts In Washlngton'have prepared this
material. They have spent much time
in writing these articles because of
their Interest in the scout movement
and because the subjects on which they
write have not been placed before the
boys hitherto in a popular vein.
For instance, there will be articles on
insects and shells, never before treat
ed In a manner that would appeal to
boys. In the same style, experts in
the geological survey, the Smithsonian
institution and department of agricul
ture, and various other bureaus In
Washington, have written articles.
Such subjects as fish, birds, rocks, flow
ers, butterflies and the art of angling
be discussed thoroughly.
The new manual is arranged in nine
chapters. The first chapter, by John
Alexander, expert in boys' work, treats
in a new manner of "Scoutcraft and
How to Become a Boy Scout." "Wood
craft," by Ernest Thompson Seton,
member of the National Audubon so
ciety, and government experts, is chap
ter No. 2. The next chapter deals with
"Campcraft and Outdoor Life," by H.
W. Gibson, boys' work secretary of
Massachusetts, and Arthur A. Carey of
Cambridge, Mass. "Tracks, Trailing,
and Signaling," by Seton, takes up a
chapter. "Health, Endurance, and Hy
giene," by Dr. George J. Fisher of the
International T. M. C. A.; "Chivalry:
Ancient, American and Modern Knight
hood." by Alexander; "First Aid and
Life-Saving," by Major Charles Lynch,
medical director of the American Red
Cross; Commodore William E. Long
fellow, U. S. volunteers' life-saving
corps, and H. W. Gibson, take up other
chapters. Chapter No.' 8 treats of
"Ganles and Athletic Standards," by
Seton, Lee F. Hammer, associate direc
tor of the child hygienic department ol
the Russell Sage foundation, and Alex
ander. The last chapter is on "Pa
triotism and. Citizenship," by Waldo H.
