went very swiftly with the appro- j j

? planned by the leaders. * E
"The program for all days ex- E
" cept Sunday was:

xne camp is oeiiig muue mui c

a beauty spot. It is a large build- I

"On Tuesday (June 20) the boys
divided into ' gangs and started t
their work under the instruction of u
" competent leaders. One gang v
started to clear the beautiful coun- g
a cil circle. The circle is in the t
I shape of a small pit and will seat ii
3 a large crowd of people. It is sit- \
' uated in the woods, so that the peo- c
pie can join and have their meetings
without being molested. s
"Another gang started to cut a i
trail to the council circle, another c
to get a flag-pole, another to prune n
I the trees of the campus and anotb- n
er to build a spring-house. t:
This gang was called the "hard b
I i guys' and was under the leader'!
ship of "Jimmie" Riddle and Boyd
