Happy Boy Scouts Ramble
Through the Country
on Labor Day
Labor Day being a holiday a hike
was planned by the Scouts of our
troop. We left the Scout rooms at 6
a. m. and boarded the car for Mid
dletown. We had to wait for the next
incoming car owing to the fact that
three Scouts missed the official car.
We headed our way toward the
Swatara creek and traveled along the
creek until we came to the first iron
bridge where some of the 6couts
proceeded to take a swim. Our next
stop was at Clifton where we had
our lunch.
Our Scouts built three fires and wo
cooked ham. bacon and eggs. After
another swim we joufneyed to
Stoverdale and visited some friends
in the grove. We then voted as to
whether another swim should be
taken and the affirmative winning,
all proceeded to the creek for the
third daily swim. We all surely felt
clean anyway. We also visited Hum

Tells of Scouts' Experi
ences in Camp Virgin
August 24.—The Scouts of Troop
12, to-day went *o camp chaperoned
by Messrs. Orr. Mentzer and Runkle.
Miss Huber, Mrs. Srnth and Mrs.
Swanson accompanied the Scouts as
cooks and everyone must admit that
they were decidedly welcome. At 9
o'clock that night everything had
been put in good order, and every
or.e was tired enough to sleep*
Sunday, August 25.—Reveille at
6.3o.—The thermometer at about 40
degrees. Orders were given for a dip
in the creek. When the Scouts felt
the cold dew on their Teet they al
most groaned. That certaintly did put
"pep" into the bunch. Then the best
liked bugle call sounded—mess. The
boys took a short hike through the
country to-day visiting farms and
exploring. Swimming and letter
writing took up most of the after
noon. In the evening a short Sunday
school meeting was held and Mr.
Kline gave us a talk.
Monday, August 26. —Another dip
in the creek. It was cloudy and un
settled all day to-day, which made
fine fishing weather and fifty fish
were caught, including rock bass,
sunfish and chubs. Troop 12 played
Troop 11 a game of baseball in the
afternoon. Troop 14 winning. A camp
fire was built in the evening and As
sistant Scoutmaster Samuel and Mrs.
Smith proved themselves first class
Tuesday, August 27. —The Rev.
Mr. Herman, of Harrisburg. visited
us to see how things were going. We
were glad to see him. Eagle Patrol
of Troop 12. had a short hike
through the fields observing every
thing that was to be seen. A skeleton
of some animal was found in an old
well, and a great deal of discussion
took place as to whether it was that
of a small pig or of a mastodon.
In the afternoon everyone took a
hike to Huston's Mill dam for a fine
Wednesday, August 28. —It rained
steadily and pretty hard, which put
a damper on any program planned
for that day. Some of the Scouts
studied and others wrote letters (to
their big sisters). Scoutmaster Orr,
of Troop 12, arrived in the evening
with Wilbur chocolate bars for the
Scouts and peaches for the cooks.
Everybody was satisfied.
Thursday, August 29.—The call of
reveille brought forth one more sick
boy. It was the old story of the green
apples. The cooks soon fixed him
though. Mr. Orr spent the greater
part of the day with us. It was vis
itor's day and not only parents came
but also many friends and good
things to eat. Scout Executive Vir
gin made an official visit in the aft
ernoon and many boys took their
tests in swimming. A campfire was
built in the evening and we were
again entertained by Assistant Scout
master Samuel's stories.
Friday, August 30. —Picture taking
day. Pictures of individuals, cooks,
camp, birds, animals, etc., were
taken. A special one of Howard
Yeager and "Angel" Bell was taken
in a particularly good pose.
Troop 12 took a 20 mile hike
through the country to the mountans
around by New Kingston. In the
evening a minstrel show was staged
by Mr. Samuel. A little comic sketch
was framed up by the cooks and they
gave a good account of themselves
as actresses. Large helpings of ice
cream, grape Juice, cakes and toast
ed marshmallows were served. It was
a big night, and taps were not sound
ed until very late.
Saturday, August 31.—Our going
home Jay. TBe whole morning was
spent in cleaning and packing up.
Mr. Orr again provided his motor
truck and had our luggage in Har
risburg before noon. In the -after
noon the happy Scouts were convey
ed to civilzation once more.
All that we can say is that we had
the time of our lives at Camp Virgin
and that we owe a great deal of it to
Airs. Smith, Mrs. Swanson and Miss
Huber. and also to Scoutmasters Orr
and Haehnlen and Assistant Scout
masters Samuel, Mentzer and Air.
Runkle. Our camping trip was sure
ly a success and we thank everyone
who had anything to do in making
it so.

SEPTEMBER 6, 1918.
Move Started to Make
$75 Minimum Salary For
Pennsylvania Teachers
Action on a bill providing for an
lncrcaso in the minimum salaried of
teachers was taken at a meeting of
county and assistant county super
intendents of southeastern Pennsyl
vania held In Reading yesterday.
Final approval of the measure prob
nbly will bo decided upon at another
meeting to be held in Reading early
in December. The bill probably will
be one of the first upon which :ho
county scnool officials will request
legislative action.
The tentative measure in the form!
j of a resolution was introduced by |
AV. R. Zimmerman, assistant super-1
intendent of Dauphin county, and]
provides tho following: .
"That we favor a minimum sal-1
ary for all teachers for not less than j
$75 a month and $5 additional tori
each successive higher grade eertiil-|
cnte: that the state pay a bonus of
sls a month for actual tiumber of
months taught, to each rural teacher
teaching in a nine-room school, the
'rural school' to be determined by
the county superintendent, and that
the state pay 40 per cent, of ail
teachers' salaries up to and includ
ing a minimum of SIOO a month."
As the resolution was introduced
shortly before the session closed yes
terday no definite action could he
taken, but it is understood that prac
tically every superintendent favored
it and will support it.
Superintendent F. E. Shambaugh
and Mr. Zimmerman attended both
