FRIDAY EVENING,
Germany and with no other object
than to transfer the producer's for
tune to a place where it will not
be taxed.
"For their own sakes several
thousand illegal traders and capi
talists are robbing their country
und committing a theft of food by
driving prices upward," the paper
charges.
"Through pressure on the rate
of exchange German war bonds can
be bought in Switzerland for ten
marks und the loan is bought up in
quantities by those who realize that
Germany must ultimately be given
help and that the mark will rise.
"The purchaser of war loan will
then make fifty per cent instead of
live per cent on the Investment."
The newspaper declares that
some means must be found for pre
venting the exportation of goods to
foreign countries. It concludes
with the statement that while the
government is painstakingly spend
ing 40,000,000 or 50.000,000 marks
for oil sand fats, 400,000,000 marks
worth of French perfumes, soaps
and modes have arrived. The Kn
tente, says the paper, must realize
that it is encouraging German in
ternational illicit trade at a cost of
German economic life.

I NEWS ENDNOTES OF THE BOY SCOUTS^
Troop 16
To-niglit's instruction begins
promptly at 7.30. Every member
should be present. This affair was
postponed from last week on ac
count of the Scout Rally at Zioti
Lutheran Church. Of course wo
want to make the best showing we
possibly can, and those fellows who
are loyal will bo on the job. The
time for our semi-annual re-organi
zation is approaching, and we want
to know just what Scouts mean busi
ness. There are several vacancies
in the." Eagle patrol, and one or two
other breaks in tho ranks that must
be closed.
We enjoyed the rally last Friday.
There were thirty-seven Scouts and
Cubs present from this organization.
We congratulate Scout Cleon Crls
well for being decorated with a
League of Courtesy button by Dr.
Fuger. Don't forget the list of good
turns, by the way. I heard that two
members of Sixteen are LKge :md
Star Scouts, and I hope it's true. If
it is, I'll tell their names next week.
An overnight hike to the Hut this
week, leaving the Square at 2 o'clock
on Saturday with food for three
meals and carfare. We hope to re
turn some time after dinner on Sun
day. We have nearly a cellar-full
of wood, and there is no doubt that
we'll be able to keep warm. All the
other details to-night at the meet
ing. Come if you have to travel on
crutches. "HUSTING,"

TROOP 13 HAS
NEW ASSISTANT
| Fred Slcffer lo Aid Direction
of Hustling Units of
Boys
Fred Steffer will bo an Assistant!
Scoutmaster at Troop 13 beginning!
I Friday of this week. His specialty!
lis signaling and the Troop will start
a real signal team at once. The J
first aid team will again he under j
Dr. Ilazen, whom we claim as our,
very own.
In the near future Troop 13 will |
come across with a real drum corps.
You fellows wno saw us on last
Friday must admit that those drums
of tho Boyd Memorial drum corps
attracted attention. So a real cam
paign has started tc persuade Mr.
Franklin to bring his corps into
the troop. Look for us in the next
parade.
The following fellows were up
for advancement on Thursday at
the Court of Honor meeting.• Chas.
Alexander, first class and a merit
badge; James Byreni, merit badges;
Joe Hagar, mreit badges; Bob Kel
ler, merit badges; Joe Hertzler,
merit badges; Dick Hertzler, merit
badges; Bruce Orumlen, merit
badges; Wayne Grunden, merit
badges; John Thompson, merit
bodges. -
That means that out of twelve
first-class Scouts, eight were up for
merit badges at that meeting. The
| Tenderfoot Scouts and Second
j Second Class are going strong, so
I watch out.
The rally at Zion Lutheran was)
very much enjoyed by the members
I of this troop.

Pack Two
j Seventeen of Pack Two went with
Troop 16 to the Rally at Zion last I
Friday. We were surprised at the
1 number of grown-ups present. The
rally was fine, and we certainly
I hope that we have the privi
] lege of getting together oftener
j during the coming year. We were
a little late getting home and some
I parents were uneasy, but we feel that
I being out until 10 o'clock occasion
ally under those circumstances
| ought to be permitted.
Some cubs are mighty poor Scouts,
j About half the fellows had to have
i i drink before the rally had
reached the fourth number on the
program. Help your self control
and will power by doing without
water occasionally. It won't hurt
you.
To-night we will have at least one
new feature at the meeting and
maybe two. We hope to start
promptly at 6.30.
