ROBBINS' CUB SCOUTS HOLD
"OPEN HOUSE" IN HONOR OF
NATIONAL BOY SCOUT WEEK
In observance of National-*
Boy Scout week, the Cub
Scouts of Robbins, Pack No.
247, presented its First' An
nual "Open House,'7 on Fri
day, February 16, 1951, at
the Lincoln Memorial School.
A crowd of parents, neigh
bors and friends werh on
hand to get acquainted with
the Cubs; learn the aims of
cubbing, and inspect vari
ous cub projects.
An impressive opening
with Cub songs, with every
one participating, set the
spirit for an enjoyable even
ing. Master of Ceremonies,
Mr. Wallace Fisher, assisted
the boys and the group in
pledging allegiance to the
flag, after which the speak
ers were introduced. Com
missioner Ernest Young, who
spoke on "Cubbing Today,"
stressed the fact that cub
bing needed the firm and
sincere support of parents,
since cubbing is primarily a
home project.
A thorough explanation of how
the Scout Executive boards plan
and prepare programs for the boys
was outlined by Mr. Russell Wal
ton, Field Executive of the Pokagon
Trails District. "All our efforts are
directed towards the boy. He is the
most important factor in the Scout
movement," said Mr. Walton.
Highlights of the program, how
ever, were the various projects the
boys in each den had made. Under
the direct tutelage of Den Mothers,
Mrs. Frances Young and Mrs. Roy
Brown, the boys showed adeptness
at making soap carvings, model
airplanes, cigar box banjos, pictures
and mechanical toys. Of particular
interest were a drum made from
an old nail keg, and a xylophone
made of assorted bottles, mounted
on a wooden platform.
More Cub songs, questions by
parents, refreshments, and taps by
the Cubs rounded out the evening.
Particular credit must be given the
boys and Den Mothers for their fine
cooperation in making the. night
such a successful one. One could
n't help but feel, however, that the
boys would progress much fasteT
and ably if more parents, friends,
and civic organizations took more
direct interest in them. Nevertheless,
the boys are looking forward to
next year's "Open House," and
hope to see a crowd twice as I
large.
