"Why you blessed little sweet

I saw an automobile skid the other day.
The driver of the car had a straight road ahead of him and
he was confident of his ability to drive the car. He knew the
road he must take to reach his destination, consequently he was
not giving the closest attention to the condition of the road.
On passing a large building his companion commented on
its beauty, the driver looked at the building, just as a street car
bell clanged.
Our driver put on the brakes suddenly and the car skidded.
Some men were playing water trom the fire hose on the
street, and the sudden stop on the wet pavement skidded the
car. It hit the curb and broke an axle.
The car was headed in an opposite direction with a broken
axle because the driver took his eyes from the road ahead.
When a car begins to skid, you never know what it will
do what direction it will take, or where it will stop.
No driver of a car want's it to skid.
No driver makes a car skid.
? The reason for skidding is because of some other agency.
Slippery mud, wet streets and oily roadways make cars skid.
They seldom skid when the driver is giving close atten
tion to the road and notes the condition which would induce a
car to skid.
If he discovers danger, he uses non-skid tires or chains, or both.
Some boys drive along in splendid style.
Parent*, teachers and employers are satisfied that the boy
is on tjie right road and ia driving safely.
Then^all of a sudden there is a check.
"I don't know what is the matter with Joseph. Last year
he was making such progress and thlTyear he is failing." This
is what a mother told me.
"I used Tom for three years and planned to advance him and
keep him in our business. He had a good future with us, but in
the past six months he is failing to do his work properly. I
discovered he has some questio lable associates." This is what
a business man said.
"Oh, I started in to make a boat, but I didn't get it finished."
William said this to me.
"Could you have finished it and used it this past summer?"
I inquired.
"Sure, but I monkeyed around too much," was the reply.
Theae boys, like the driver of the automobile, took their eyes
and thoughts from the ROAD AHEAD, and something hap
pened when they looked away, and they SKIDDED.

Seout Leaders'
Training Class
Holds Meeting
The training class for Scout
leaders opened in the Chamber
of Commerce rooiris last Wed
nesday evening with a larger at
tendance than In any previous
year the course has been con
ducted. Senator Seldon P. Spen
cer in his address emphasized
three essentials for the boy or
the man. if he is to experience
real success; namely: education,
perseverance and religion; and
urged Scoutmasters to promote
the development of these ideals
in the lives of the boys with
whom they have to do. He said
that many a boy and man, "with
hiB face in the right -direction,
stops Just short of success; like
the historic wanderers on Mount
Washington, to whom a monu
ment has been erected, who per
ished In a blizzard within 300
yards of the door of the inn they
were seeking. They were lost
through lack of perseverance.
They were headed right, but
gave up just too soon.
Hon. Huston Thompson, presi
dent of the District of Columbia
Boy Scout Council, pointed out
some of the fundamental objec
tives of the Scout Movement, and
complimented the men present
on being engaged dlrectlx in the
biggest work for boys tne cen
turies have .produced; with the
opportunity of modifying by
great improvements the civilisa
tion of tomorrow. The Scout
does his good turn without ac
cepting the tlave - producing
"tip;" and If that uplrlt can be
made the spirit of the nation,
commercial bribery must cease.
The Scout is the great conserva
tionist. he said, protecting, wild
life, putting out fires, planting
new trees. The boy of today Is
the citizen of tomorrow, and
whatever Is done for him Is done
for our countny.
Tomorrow evening Dr. Shep
herd I. Franz, one of the lead
ing psychologist of the countryt
