BOY SCOUTS' DM
Campaign in Washington
Must Succeed in Next
Tomorrow night. Boy Scout week,
as proclaimed by the President, of
ficially ends, though an appeal will
be made for the scout organization
throughout the churches of the Die*
trict on Sunday. The campaign for
associate members of the Boy Scouts
of America must be made a success
?within the next forty-eight hours, so
far as Washington is concerned.
The District committee in charge
of the campaign is making every ef
fort today to help put Washington
"over the top." Only by the earnest
co-operation of the people and all the
campaign workers will it be possi
ble to reach the desired goal. E. B.
Eynon, jr., chairman, said today.
Dollar Fee Is Emphasized.
"Don't forget the home boys," is
an appeal which the solicitors are
asking. Much emphasis has been
placed upon the dollar membership
fee for associate members of the na
tional organization. Of course, the
national fund will be used in all parts
of the country to develop the scout
organization and to make it stronger.
But the solicitors are asking sub
scribers not to stop with the one
dollar membership fee, but to con
tribute additional dollars, all of
?which will be used exclusively for
the Washington Boy Scouts. The lo
cal organization is growing so rapidly
that it requires considerable funds.
Silver Cup Brill Tomorrow.
Tomorrow is to be a big day, not
only for the campaign for associate
members, but also for the Boy Scouts
of the District themselves. In the
morning will come the competitive
drill for the silver cup offered by
Secretary Daniels of the Navy De
partment several years ago. to be
won and held each year by the scout
company making the best record in
thlB competitive drill. The boys are
on their toes for the event, which is
set for 10 a.m. on the Ellipse, south
of the White House.
The field day for the winners in the
six Boy Scout divisions will be held
tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
There will be twelve events, and
about 150 boys will participate.
James E. West, formerly of this
city and at present chief scout ex
ecutive of the national organization,
has sent a message to Washington
urging its support of the campaign
for associate members and dwelling
particularly upon the reasons why the
churches should support the Boy
Binds Boy to His Church.
"The churches." he said, "particular
ly will lend their support to the move
ment. for. first of all, 80 per cent of
the vast number of scout troops are
connected with churches. As the Rev
Franklin D. Elmer of the Northern
Baptist convention has said. 'Scouting
binds the boy to his church and af
fords mutually helpful opportunities
for the church to serve him and for
him to serve in his place. The troop
of today may be built Into the church
'"The religious policy of the scout
movement is consistent with the best
Of ecclesiastical principles. In all mat
ters of faith the boy is directly under
the guidance of his parent church. No
religious teaching is thrust upon him
from the outside. No attempt is made
to wean him away from his proper
religious environment. Scouting turns
the boy toward his church and home
Instead of drawing him out of It.
Indorsed by Every Creed.
"It Is indorsed by every faith* and
creed. It is approved ad generously
supported by Catholic, Protestant and
Jew alike It is thoroughly Ameri
can, thoroughly religious."

Congress approved the request of
the Dupont family to remove the
statue and replace it with a memorial
of greater artistic value, on condition
that there would be no cost to the i
government and that the commission )
