One of the most interesting- v
velpoments in the Boy Scout mo\
ment is the civic or community go
turn, in which all the scouts of a co:

service. The extent to which scon
are learning citizenship through d
ing such things, is little guessed i
the general public.

How Clubmen Keep Young
What is long supposed to have bef
a mythical fountain of youth \v:
discovered to be a reality twelve yea
ago, and Rotary clubs, Kiwani
chambers of commerce, the Lions ar
similar business men's club have lat
ly discovered it for themselves. Th
fountain of youth is service to bo;
hoed. The Boy Scouts of Americ
in the twelve years they have bef
with us have enrolled upwards of
hclf million men as leaders in or
capacity or another. Among the be
supporters of the movement are the*
various business clubs, chambers <
commerce and others. They are pr<
