master J. B. Truett. came to this city
Monday, and will camp for ten days
at Randle Highlands.
Senior Patrol Scout Woodruff
Youngs, of troop 61, was present at
the last meeting, after having spent
his vacation in New England, where
he was pursuing missionary studies.
Youngs is a splendid performer on
the ukulele, and will be a valuable
addition to the troop glee club.
The troop's annual exhibition will
be given the first week in December.
Plans will soon be made for the
troop dance to be given the last week
in September. With the return of
the different members, Troop 61 is
beginning to take on new life.
L. L. McDonald, national camp,
director, Boy Scouts of America. Inc.,
was in Washington last week, and
inspected the new camp at Burnt
Mills. He declared it to be one of
the best in the country.
Boy Scouts of this city, as well as
members of that organization through
out the country, will take part in the
safety first campaign to be conducted
under the auspices of the National
Safety Council, beginning August 30,
according to reports received here.
Plans for the campaign have not
been made, but it is believed that the
scouts in this city will take a part
in it similar to that of the "Walk
Rite" campaigns held in this city
several years ago.
The following troops will be at
Camp Roosevelt this week:
Troop S, Col. W. W. Taylor, scout
master; Troop 26. V. O. Yetter, scout
nmaster; Troop 30. Edwin Kirk, scout
master; Troop 35. Joseph Stimnson,
scoutmaster; Troop 40, Thomas E.

Plans for a hike on September 1
through the Shenandoah Valley have
been completed by Troop 32. Forty
boys are expected to go in the party
which will be under the leadershIp
of Scoutmaster Newell. They expect to
visit places where battles were fought
during the civil war, including New
Market. Va., where the Virginia Mili
tary .Cadets held the Union troops.
The historic caverns of Lu ray. Va.,
which have recently been declared by
sightseers more wonderful than the
Mammoth cave in Kentucky, will be
inspected by the scouts.
