FRONT * SECOND FLOOR GRACE STS. FRONT Daisy's Idea Was A Daisy • ... A a & So The Girl Scouts Of America Celebrate Their 35th Birthday By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Newsfeatures Writer ! “I have a wonderful idea,’’ Daisy Low enthused vto a friend 35 years ago in Savannah. Ga. It was and it is a wonderful idea: the Girl Scouts of America, which has had four million mem bers in the ensuing years and is still a-growing from the seeds which vital, energetic Juliette (Daisy) Gordon Low brought with her from England. The year 1912 belonged to the generation which believed whole unbounded confidence in her own ideas — and conveniently hard-of hearing—the heroine of the Amer ican Girl Scouts succeeded in overcoming sll objections. From small beginnings — the meetings of a couple of Scout troops (named after flowers) where the girls discussed home making and learned rudimentary first aid — Girl Scouting has be come almost a must for the grow ing American girl and its courses include everything today from do mestic science to marine navi gation to actual aviation courses. Its basic theme then was good citizenship, and it still is, for the keynote of the 35th anniversary of Scouting is “better citizens build a better world.” Most of the Girl Scouts in Mrs. GIRL SCOUTS THEN AND NOW . . . Joan Nubent (left) and Joan Lineen, of New York, pose “family portrait” stple in offi cial Girl Scout uniforms of 1912 and 1947. heartedly that a woman’s place was in her long skirts an^ that any great amount of physical ac tivity overnight turned a gentle, maidenly teen-ager into a “tom boy.” So Mrs. Low, who had seen ths development of the Girl Guides and the Boy Scouts under the leadership of the Baden - Powells in England, had rather rough go ing in some of the early Scouting progress. A woman of great drive, I Low’s original White Rose and , Carnation troops are willing to I reminisce about the early days of Scouting on the' drop of a hat. The organization meeting of a ■ group of seventh and eighth I graders was held in the carriage (house of Mrs. Lows family. Re ; freshments were cocoa and ( cookies. The whole program revolved j around that of the English Girl Guides. The first uniforms, made by a Savannah tailor, recently were described by “the very first Girl Scout in America.” Mrs. Low’s niece, now Mrs. Daisy Gor don Lawrence of Savannah. “The girl’s uniforms were dark blue denim middy blouses with light blue ties, pleated skirts and hideous, round, blue felt hats.” i Despite parental frowns, the (girls took good sportsmanship seriously—and started with sports. Basketball was the most popular game among the young Scouts and one of the first Scouting crises occurred because the youngsters wanted to doff their pleated skirts and P^y 'n their long, black bloomers. A compromise was worked out during warm weather so that the young Scouts could wear long coats to their playing field, ar range huge canvas curtains around the field, and then, safe from prying eyes, could play in the comfort of their athletic bloomers. The time was ripe for the de velopment of Juliette Low's im port, and soon troops of Girl Scouts w»ere springing up through out the country. Today, the age group has been stretched in both directions, so that a quota of Brownies, children from seven to ten, and Senior Scouts, over 17, are important parts of the million and one-quarter Girl Scouts who at this moment are members of troops.
