The rolioiwlnt- officers were elected president, Mrs. Chllds; secretary, It is possible that yon did not see the Catholic Boy Scouts as they set forth on their trip into the wilds of Washington, because the night of de parture, a week ago Sunday, was such that only romantic and lntreplu spirits would brave the storm ana venture abroad. During a downpour of rain the boys reached the riverfront at 8:30 p. in. and sat huddled beneath a smelly dock waiting for the stecmer. Gentries were posted at the edge of the pier to signal at her approach. At 10:46 the steamer Beaver tied up at the dock and the Scouts wem aboard. Contrary to the wishes of the boys the boat was schedule, to loiter, nere and there, along the river and to reach Oak Point, the destination, as late as nine o'clock the following morning. However, accomodating themselves to these sad contingencies. tne boys spread themselves "like mo lasses" on the deck ot the engine room and tried to sleep. Next morning, the shin's steward. a benevolent riverman Indeed, with sandy balr, pinkish cheeks and kindly ye, served the sleepy crown with a garganthuan breakfast on the "cost plus ' system. So It was not sur prising that this beaming troop of adventurers went ashore in. a burst of sunshine with sprightly step and a shout of youthful but well-Intended pleasantries for the benefit ot a sup posedly charmed and awe-struck crew. Loaded with packs varying In weight from twenty to fifty pounos the two patrols trudged about three miles back Into the mountains a region entirely tree of human Inhabitants.- They were fortunate to come upon two abandoned cabins. One ot them contained a rude fireplace and therein the permanent camp wa made. A tall flagpole was mounted on a knoll overlooking the gorge ot the creek and the bugler sounded "To the Colors." Each day was begun by general at tendance at mass which was said la a tent on the grassy slope at the edue of the forest. Regularly, every morning about 7 o'clock, dozens of greedy eyes glared reproachfully into frying-pans ot slowly sizzling hotcakes, or into pots ot roil) mush. The k. p.'s were lay no means expert, but the troop sur vives. The good genii who preside over the fountains ot the skies were ex ceptionally favorable to the Boy' Scouts: ideal weather was enloyea The boys explored every spot that seemed to promise adventure, but spent most of the time along the creek profitably, as one may Judge irom the number of trout they caught 275 in all. Two of the boys bad the luck to see r. bobcat at a respect ful distance. One morning the Scoutmaster, who usually fished for two hours before the boys awoke, came back from the creek to find the camp deserted ex cept tor two of the "dlpes." The ex planation of the strange and whole sale exodus was this: a hunter from down the creek who had pasaeu through the day before with his dogs. came in at dawn to tell the boys that ins dogs had not come home for tin. night and that they must surely have treed a cougar. He Invited the Scouts to go with him and see the thrilling catastrophe In the mountain cat's career. With what alacrity and blood lust these young .gentlemen Boed away with the man of the woods, it might be Judged from the deserted and disordered state ot the cabin. Aiioui o ciock iney Began to return in two and threes, ravenously hungry and much disgusted disgusted be cause, according to the huntor, the dogs had held their prey in the tree until a few moments before the boya arrived, and thon, despairing of a numan climax to this forest drama, had, through weariness, allowed tl.o panther to escape. One dog was cruelly torn. Several times the boys went swim. mlng In the creek, and took a tare well plunge near Oak Point on the way back to the river. On this oc casion several farm women elected to pass- nearby In search ot berries and It may be thM they overheard the frenzied whispers "g I m m e no pants!", "hey! tro me my drors." Twenty-four Kodak pictures wer. taken In the course of the outlin:. The troops returned to Rainier and St. Helens on the Beaver, Friday night at a late hour. The following made the trip: Carl Tucker, Tom anu Harry Ketel. Mao Holllhan, Willie Fisher, Bernard Llnderman, Arthur LaBare, Henry and George Walter, Carl Cossman, Walter Johnson, Sum and Fred Baseel, and Father Clancy. dens nnd orchards and pastures. A sweeping glance, from thlB altitude. would almost convince one tnat the author ot the expression "God's green earth," had seen the world from an air-plane.
