BOY SCOUTING
REPRESENTS 91 *
OF POPULATION
Scouting is world wide. Prior to
totalitarian invasion Scouts were ac
tive in 73 civilized countries which
represent 91 per cent of the world’s
population. The confraternity works
just as intensively as extensively.
Bovs are enrolled regardless of their
place of residence. There are troops
in the towns and cities; patrols in vil
lages; and Lone Scouts who live on
remote farms.
The founder of Scouting built so
wisely that the program has appealed
to nations of divergent ideologies, and
to all religious groups. Scouts are in
democratic America and in Axis Ja
pan. Troops of Scouts are sponsored
by Protestants and Catholic churches
and by Jewish synagogues; and the
Mormon church was so favorably im
pressed by Scouting that it abandon
ed its own program of boys’ work and
accepted Scouting.
The content of the Scouting pro
gram is just as comprehensive as the
territory that it serves. On the ma
terialistic side it includes vocational
guidance and subject matter per se;
in the spiritual realm, character edu
cation and good manners; and in civ
ics, democracy and patriotism.
Scouts have an unequalled oppor
tunity for exploring the various edu
cational subjects. By means of merit
badges the boys may get fundamental
information about 107 activities di
rectly related to life. This is a val
uable part of vocational guidance.
If a Scout wishes to explore the op
portunities in war service he may
earn merit badges in aviation, signal
ling, radio, and fingerprinting; in the
practical arts he has oportunities in
architecture, protography and taxi
dermy; in the fine arts he may ex
plore, dramatics and music; scientific
merit badges may be earned in as
tronomy and chemistry; for the boys
who are interested there are merit
badges in agriculture and forestry;
and in the trades and professions
Scouts may get honors in journalism,
surveying, plumbing, bookbinding,
salesmanship, etc. It is not the in
tention to give the boys thorough
courses in any of those subjects, nor
do they get a smattering. The aims
are: to enable the Scouts to discover
hobbies or to develop hobbies in
choosing their careers intelligently;
to use leisure in a worthy manner;
to make Scouts loyal and useful citi
zens; and to develop an appreciation
of the out-of-doors life.
Occasionally educators talk about
character education. Scouting ac
tually teaches it. Scouts learn those
homely virtues of trustworthiness,
loyalty, helpfulness and friendliness.
The traits which promote mental
health (cheerfulness, bravery, clean
liness and reverence) are learned by
Scouts; and the noble qualities of
courtesy, kindness and obedience are
not overlooked. This is not mere lip
service. Here is one of the sevei al
requirements which a Scout must sat
isfy to become a first class Scout:
earn and deposit at least $2.00 in a
public bank or other savings institu
tion (premiums paid on life insurance,
if earned, are accepted); or plan, raise
and market a farm crop; or earn and
contribute at lest $2.00 or its equiva
lent to the family budget or to wel
fare work in the community.
Although good manners are a val
uabale asset in social and business
life they are too often neglected in
the home and forgotten by the school.
But Scouting has not neglected this
highly important subject. On page
24 of “Handbook for Boys” we read,
“Good manners are as vital in busi- ;
ness as they are in social life. In
meeting a woman, or a child, a man
should as a matter of course, always
make way for her.”
“When riding in a crowded street
car or bus, men worthy of the name
will offer their seats to a woman or
child. As a Scout, set the example
with a smile.”
“In times of accident and danger,
the strong men stand back to give the
women and children protection; such

ion ships, too, is the chivalry of the j
i sea. Courtesy to women should bej
shown at all times. If you are seat- j
led and a lady enters the room, stand j
i up and see it you can help in an\ \\a\
before you sit down.
Americans believe in democracy,
and the Scout uniform signiiies de
mocracy. Each Scouts wears the ;
same uniform and meets brothci
; Scouts on the same level. It is no j
mark of one who considers himself ;
’ better than others, but it is the mark,
| of one striving toward useful citizen
-1 j ship. In Scouting all creeds, races,
and classes are as one. Each fellow,
high and low, rich and poor, stands
[ : upon his own feet.
Patriotism, but not chauvinism, is
, a cardinal principal of Scouting.
[ Nineteen pages of the Scout handbook
I are devoted to My Flag, and one of
i the requirements for a tenderfoot
- Scout (a tenderfoot is a beginner in
l Scouting) is, “Know the composition
; and history of the Flag of the United
• States of America.” The Scout learns
■ the meaning of the colors in thej
■ Flag, what is back of it. the history
[ of our Flag, Flag facts, the respect
due the Flag, what to do with worn
- out Flags, when to fly the Flag, the
; Flag code, cautions, etc.
A corner stone of modern progress- 1
i ive education is “learn to do by do- ;
; ing.” In this, Scouting is peeminent. j
• A Scout learns to cook by cooking; j
he learn safety by practicing it; first j
aid is learned by using first aid.;
■ Thrift, bee keeping, farming, map
reading, and other Scout activities
; are learned in the same direct way.
Scouting uses good boy psychology.
■ It has a sound system ow awards, and
they are free from the objections to
the awards which were used so fre
quently in schools a generation ago.
r Every Scout with perseverance may
win some awards, and the boy may j
choose which awards he wishes toi
earn. Hence, in Scouting, certain,
fundamentals are required of all boys, j
and above this basic training they;
may elect to pursue those hobbies and j
avocations for which they are espec- j
ially fitted. Scouting has never been j
'.accused of lock step educational,
methods.
Scouting teaches the Fatherhood of
j God, and the brotherhood of man.
ilt aims to develop the whole boj,
mentally, morally and physically; and
this concept of education is as modern
l as tomorrow’s sunrise.

YOUNG PUPILS
NOT PROTECTED
FROM DIPHTHERIA
A large proportion of the pupils
: who entered the kimlegarten and first
grade classes of Maryland schools
j this year had never been protected
j against diphtheria. Since this ser
! ious disease usually attacks very
young children Dr. R. 11. Riley, Direc
tor of the State Department of Health
wishes to remind the parents of all
preschool children that it is important:
to have them immunized immediately.
“Have your child protected against
diphtheria now,” Dr. Riley urges.
“Above all, don’t wait until your
youngster is ready to go to school;
because diphtheria attacks very young
children more often than it attacks
their older brothers and sisters, and
with greater severity.
“Diphtheria is preventable. Chil
-1 dren who have never been safeguard
; ed can catch the disease easily from
those who have it or from apparently
normal carriers. However, inoclution
; with toxoid protects them from this
; dreaded enemy of childhood as effec
; tivelv as vaccination prevents small
; POX.
j “If your baby is eight or nine.
, months old and has not been protected
take him to your physician or to the
nearest clinic now,” Dr. Riley advises.
“Authorities on the cai’e of young i
children recommend a first dose of'
toxoid at eight or nine months of age,
some times as early as six months. j
Another dose is usually given later.
“Children who have passed the ages:
mentioned and are still unprotected
should also be taken to a doctor for
immediate immunization. There may
be danger in delay.
“All children should be given the
advantage of protection. Toxoid is
harmless. In fact, it hardly ever pro
duces any unfavorable reaction. On
the other hand, diphtheria—an ever- :
present threat to children who have
not been immunized—is always ser
ious and frequently fatal.”
