YOUNG TO LEARN
OF SCOUT PLANS
Mass Meeting of Boys Called at
s the Y .M. C. A. Next Sat
THOSE OF 12 ARE ELIGIBLE
Full Information to Be Provided by
Liocai Executive Committee and
Masters to He Named.
Every boy who Is interested in the
scout movement ought to make it a
point to be at the meeting at the Y. M.
C. A. auditorium next Saturday morn
ing at 10:30 in order to learn all about
it. There seem to be many boys who
would like to be scouts, but do not
know how to go about organizing, i
They will be fully enlightened as to ;
this, and those who have questions to
ask will have a chance to ask them.
On account of the misunderstandings
which have arisen about the move
ment, it is hoped that a very larg
number of boys will attend the meet
ing, so as to have the truth given wid
circulation. Any boy over 12 years cl
age can attend the meeting.

"The term 'scouting' is not limited
to the scouting done by soldiers in
time of war. There is another kind
peace scouting. That is the work of
Buffalo Jones and of other pioneers of
civilization men who live on the fron
tiers, doing their duty as explorers,
surveyors, missionaries, police, and so
on, where it is hardest, facing all kinds
of dangers from climate and wild
beasts, living apart from their kind,
but doing their duty and trying to help
others. These are men who have been
able to look after themselves in diffi
cult situations, men who can help a
comrade when he is injured, and, there
fore, men full of chivalry.
"Those are the best men of the race
and those are the men that we hold up
as ideal to the boys, because they have
prestige among bovs. Boys are only
too willing to rise to that ideal and
accept it as a guide. Therefore, we
put up scouting, because it is a pur
suit that appeals to the boys, and be
cause it has that in it which tends to
make good men of them, good citi
"At the same time it is possible for
boys to become too elf-reliant. They
can become wanting in courtesy, in
discipline. This scouting may be a
means of teaching them chivalry, of
helpfulness to each other; and those
are attributes recognized everywhere.
All men flock to America to help make
i a great nation. - They need some bind
ing material which will bring them all
the rest of their lives."
