The big job for each scoutmaster is
the lining up' of three, men as troop
advisors. An outline of duties of
each of these committeemen has
been worked out at local head'
quarters and if these duties are un
dertaken the scoutmasters should
have some real help-in conducting
their troop from now on.
A splendid Scoutmasters' course
of training has been worked ont and
will start sometime in Octojber.
Ii nose completing mis course - oi

times this winter inasmuch as sev

Bonner ia a charming young girl

doubt, playing opposite Jack Pick
ford in "The Man Who Had Every

lieutenant colonel now stationed in
Chicago on tHe staff of Major Gen
eral Wood. ' Most of her early life
she spent in out of the way army
posts and it's a very, very different
life from the motion picture studio
is her verdictv '
"I have acted airmy life," she
explains, "not really but make-believe.
Tou see, kiddies who are
reared in army posts do not have
all of the advantages that city chil
dren do and so I just had to amuse
myself most of , the time. - My fa
vorite game wasvplay acting and I
usually had to take air the parts
and do the scene . shifting myself
because there were seldom other
children to play with. I used to act
out every book I read and I used
to imitate air the men ana women
who came to our house." . '
. Miss Bonner says ., it never oc
curred to her to really act until she
was quite grown-up, which - can
hardly be true, for the young miss
is scarcely grown up yet ,
