We come n contact with so mn boys who?i very appearance plainly shows that to all intenta they have no parents, and we so frequently dis cover that a boy Is surprised when we suggest thst possibly his Dad could show him or help him to do something, that we are forced to be lieve (hat many, very many fathers, are not in the confidence of their sons. We have in mind a certain bov who ha been truant from school for about as many days aahe has attended since last September. He is a habitual smoker and in general is of the type that i classed as a "regular rough neck." We recently cornered this boy and had s real heart to heart talk with him. He was mighty loyal to his home and atoutly. maintained that Jie had folks who were interested in him and looked after him. But in answering direct questions the truth was aoon apparent and how- Ur heart warmed to the lad. In the flrst r'e the clothes the bey wore were so dirty and covered with grease that one lnsticttvely drew away from him. Hje coat was ripped and torn In' a number of places. The only redeeming feature about his clothing was the shoes which were new. An outfit of this kind precluded his en tering the homes of many boys whose companionship would be helpful to him. He is narked as a "dirty hret" and mothers would quite naturally tell their boys not to bring him around. This boy's own home seemed to of fer little that attracts a normal boy and the reault has been thst hr has sought sach companionship and in terests as he could And outside his home. And he .has found compan ions and interests. He knows where to buv cigarettes ind how to us them. He knowf where ' hsng out and bum around and where to find com panions whose influence aids his downward ter.dencie. "Does your father ever take you out to an entertainment or anywhere.? he was asked. It Id been so long ago that he could not remember th last occasion. When this unfortunate Id has run his course and comes before the courts we feel that the Judge may well ask the question "Did this boy sin or his father?" "An extreme case, exclaims many a parent but let me tell you tha there are plenty of slmlrar cases In a less degree. In many hnmea it is customary to permit the children to f"--j"ir ii in, in. Ill hi i if 3' iV: 'I CrJjaai'j: ycy.TMMia lmiA '(? -1 Vv.ji-'Hfll f - .i- iii w ii in Kl i tt-vT T' V-f x S3 . VS HH.-Vv . - -v:4 5 Swift & Company buys more than 9000 head of cattle on an average, every market day. Each one of them is "sized up" by rxpert3. Both the packer's bayer and the commission salesman must judge what amount of meat each animal will yield, and how fine it will be, the grading of the hide, and the quantity and- quality of the fat. Ebth must know market ccralitfoCT for lira etods and meat throughout the country. The buyer must know whore the d&rect qualities, weights, and kinds of cattle can be best marketed as beef. If the buyer pays more than the animal is worth, the packer loses money on it. If he oners less, another packer, or a shipper or feedar, gets It away from him. If the seller accepts too little, the Evenstock reiser -gets less than he is entitled to. If he holds out for more than it is worth, he fails to make a sale. i. A A variation of a few cents in the price per hundred pounds is a matter of vital importance to the packer, because it means the difference between profit and loss. Swift & Company, U. S. A. seek amusements unshared by an adult member of the family. Unshared amusements mean un censored amusements. There are few legitimate amusements that a parent csnnot share in some way and none in which a righteous parent can af ford not to be interested. Can a mother be interested in some me chanical contraption that her boy Is building? Should she permit him to clutter up the house with tools and shavings and doubtless mar some paint and possibly dent the furni ture? Tes, a thousand trrnes. For Is It not better to mar furniture and muss the carpets to mar furniture and muss be driven from his home to seek his amusement elsswhere and where he, and such companions as he may elect, without aupervision, jroreed to mar not houses artd furniture, but their very souls. What am I driving at? Just this. In svery little quarter of the city are small groups of boys who form a nat ural gang. Every normal boy belongs to some gang and by a gang I do not mean a "bad bunch." A gang Is a small group who are mutually attract ed to each otheo by reason of natural likes and dislikes. Each gang has a natural leader. Rome gangs have sev eral kindred spirits who mould the policies of the bunch. The disposition of these leaders determines the line of activity that the gang pursues. Shall we break up the gang and de stroy Its organization? No. But we should capitalism its possibilites and drect its energies slong constructive rather than destructive lines. It Is not the destruction of property that need sorrt us In dealing with the gang but the destroying of high Ideals and atandaids of living. What can you do? You can do a lot. For instances suppose that we have in mind a typical gang of six or eight boys, or even four or five. Sure among their families there will be found one room that ran be utilized as "headquarters" or "club." Let that be the contribution of one family. In another family is a father, big broth er, or uncle who can spare an evening: or two a week from 7 to 9. Another family has a few spare tools, and an other some table jrames. Let these things be accumulated and turn the hunch loose to do what? Just the nat ural things they m-ant to do. To mend their wagons, build bird houses, make simple electrical experiments, play games, and enjoy the fellowship of each other. Terhaps one of the families has some spare canvas or an old tent, or failing this, some Dad might donate the price of a tent, and when the warm weather comes a few fathers take the bunch out for in overnight hike. Meals rooked over the open fire. Going to sleep to the tune of katydids. Up early and bathing in the river or lake. Gee. Dad, can't you remember when you were ten years old. , And it will all come back ,and many of the forgotten stunts will be revived and the prowess of youthful days will re turn. This la not . dream, hut a practical working plan that has been success Cattle Buying fully tried many times. It Is not at all difficult and there need be no hard end fast rules that those" who lead do so because they love the boys and wish them to grow up to noble man hood snd good citizenship. And those who have tried It have found that in the dirtiest clothing and behind the roughest exteriors there are often real Jewels characters that we cannot help loflns; when we come to know them. And it amply repays all the tjme and effort we put Into It to ha that one-time "onery, tough Bill Jones" hunt us up to tell of S'ine plan or Jor that he wants to share with us. Then Indeed we are "pals" and they fall sway fronivthe stooped shoulders. We "old heads really get more out of this sort of thing than we put la snd It even approximates the fsmous Fountain of Youth that Ponce De Leon sought in vain. To bring this ill Into yoi:r own ex periences, why not drop In at tha Scout office and talk It over some day. The Executive has known boys for twenty years and has dealt with thou sands. He Is anxious to help you to help the boys. He belleres that the only problem there Is Is not a "boy" problem but a "father and mother" problem. He will be glad to see you at your convenience.
