OPENSJWAY 25
Mansfield Plans Full Season’s
Entertainment At Near
by Resort
With the opening of Carolina
Beach scheduled for Saturday,
May 25, officials at the beach ex
pect one of the largest crowds
ever to attend its opening.
Robert Plummer, president of
the Carolina Beach chamber of
commerce, announced Saturday
that for the past several weeks
hotel, inn, restaurant, cottage and
boarding house managers have
been getting ready for the open
ing.
“Already,” he said, “most of the
business establishments at Caro
lina Beach are opened and en
tertaining visitors. The large
crowd expected will find accomo
dations to their likings.
“Several of the larger hotels
and inns have added additional
space, and modernized their
places to keep abreast of the
times.”
A. L. Mansfield in charge of the
beach’s entertainment committee
is planning full season’s enter
tainment for visitors. This is being
done so that visitors can find
amusement other than regular
beach attractions, regardless of
the time they select to visit Caro
lina Beach.
Bees are especially fond of blue
colored flowers.
SCOUT NEWS
By JACK STILLMAN
Daniel Carter Beard, author, ar
tist, outdoorman, a pioneer in
working with boys in the great out
oi-doors, known to boyhood the
world over simply as “Uncle Dan”
Beard, will be 90 years old next
June 21.
His 90th milestone will be cele
brated by one of the largest birth
day observance ever held any
where, when more than 70,000 Boy
Scouts are expected to gather at
the World’s Fair, New York, on
Boy Scout day, Saturday, June 22
at which time they will pay their
respects to their National Scout
Commissioner, who thirty years
ago was one of the founders of the
movement in America.
The annual field day for the Cape
Fear Area council will be held in
Fayetteville at the high school bowl
June 19.
The line of events will be opened
with an inspection and a street
parade to begin at 10 o’clock. Im
mediately upon the close of in
spection all units will line up in
numerical order for a parade down
Hay street to the market house.
At 11 o’clock the compass relay
will take place. All materials will
be furnished by the council. This
team is composed of eight mem
bers who must know the 16 prin
cipal points of compass and be
able to place markers on a com
pass which will be drawn on the
ground.
An O’Grady drill will begin at
11:30 o’clock No equipment is
necessary. A team of eight compet
ing Scouts to be drilled by Field
Day judges. This event will last
for 10 minutes. The troop having
the most Scouts in line at the time
will be awarded first place, etc.
Should all Scouts be out at the end
of 10 minutes, the troop that has a
contestant last in line will be
awarded first place.
Signaling will follow at 11:45.
Only the Morse or Semaphore may
be used. The signaling teams are
to be composed of four Scouts
each troop. Troops will have the
choice of one type of signaling
which they may use. Sealed mes
sages will be given senders who
will open and read the message at
the sound of the whistle. Signaling
will continue for five minutes at
the end of which time a second
whistle will sound and all signal
ing must be stopped. Team scores
will be based on the length of the
message sent as well as accuracy.
Since there will be insufficient
time to cook a meal, it is sug
gested that each troop bring a pic
nic lunch to be eaten only during
the hours of 12 and 1 o’clock. Each
troop will be responsible for the
appearance of its area. Troops that
desire may go up town to a cafe
provided that they go in a body
under the leadership of the Scout
master and also provided that they
report back to the high school
bowl not later than 1 o’clock.
At 1 o’clock the knot tying event
will take place followed by the
first aid competition at 1:15, com
posed of a team of two Scouts and
a patient. Scouts must use standard
first aid kits and staves for splints.
A chariot race will take place
at 1:30. This will be composed of
teams having five Scouts in each,
four horses and a driver.
Other events and activities are
planned during the afternoon. It is
requested that Scoutmasters try to
have their teams ready on the
scheduled time for each event.
