CRITICISM NAVY Boy Scout Outlines Its Next Three In Detailed Statement, Board Explains What Is To Be Done With Funds Thai Are Being Raised Here in Campaign For $30,000. An official statement, signed by the members of the Boy Scout finance committee, explaining in detail the whys and wherefores of tho campaign for $30,000 in three days, which is now underway, was given by the committee to the Washington public today. This state ment outlines in detail the budget three years giving, giving a statement of the amount and purpose of every intended expenditure of this money. The statement follows TO THE WASHINGTON PUBLIC: Tho undersigned, being tho finance committee of tho Boy Scout Association In your city, will authorize all expenditures made by tho local council and wish to announce at this timo that the $30,000 which it is planned to raise in this three-day financial campaign will bo used first to pay $4,899.1.1 of back debts; that $6,000 will be used in the next six months for all expenses In an active campaign to increase tho boy scout mem bership in this city to 6,000 members. Ton thousand dollors will be expended in the twelve months ending June 30, 1917, in active work to increase the member ship to 10,000 boys, and $10,000 more will be spent up to June 30, 1918, to increase the boy scout membership in this city to 15,000. If we are successful in raising the $30,000 nothing more will be asked of tho Washington public for boy scout work for the next three years. It should be borne in mind that to increase the boy scout enrollment as rapidly as we propose means the employment of high class men who will give their entire time to the work. This is an absolute necessity because these troops can only bo organized at night when the boys arc not in school, and tho hours of tho day are used by these executives to obtain the - volunteers who act ob scoutmasters, nssistant scoutmnstcrs, and merit badge examiners. Of the latter we now have fifty-one, men who are experts in their respective lines, in business, in the medical profession, and in scientific work, who examine the boys when they have been prepared by their scoutmasters and the scout executives for the various testa which they must pass in order to obtain the promotion that the boya themselves seek to obtain. , If you are deeply interested in the boy life of your city and our future citizenship we know there is no better investment that we can recommend to your consideration. The expenditures arc herewith itemized, and we ask the careful scrutiny of the thinking public of all our proposed ex penditures. flfDOirr FINANCIAL STATEMENT Dec. 1, 1J1S. to Scout executive t2,6tii Clerical assistance 1,2"" Kent m Printing Annual camp maintenance ?5 Postage ' Transportation 1'" Telephone 1 uepuiy scout commissioner, northwest -" Deputy scout commissioner, southeast o Deputy scout commissioner, northeast Bf Deputy scout commissioner. southwest 2S National hesdquarters V Scout Master Association . ...

He says: "Tho ' doctors told me nothintr but an oper ation Would (rive roc relief. I decided to first try Fruitola and Traxo, which relieved me of a quantity of Kali stones and I have no further pain or trouble from my old com plaint. I would not take $500.00 for what your remedies have done for me." Fruitola, as the name implies, is a pure fruit oil, combined with cer tain harmless salts, and acts as a lubricant on the intestinal parts, softening the congested masses, dis integrating tho hardened particles that cause so much sufTcrincr and ex pelling the accumulation to tho patient's great relief. Traxo acta on the liver and kidneys, stimulates the flow of gastric juices to aid diges tion and removes bile from the general circulation. It is a splendid tonic and serves to build up and restore the weakened run-down system. Fruitola and Traxo arc prepared in the Pinus laboratories at Monticello, 111., and arrangements have been made to supply them through representative druggists.
