A hail to the lad who always does
his bit!
When there is work, he hustles
into it
With the sest of a batter who is
swinging for a hit—
The ready and the steady and the
heady Boy Scout.
He's often small, and he'e never
very big;
He's always square, and he cannot
be a prig:
And when there is digging you ought
to see him dig—
The ready and the steady and the
heady Boy Scout.
The woodland lore is a bit of what
he knows;
He loves the flag and follows where
it go,
He's a man in the making, the very
best that grows—
The ready and the steady and the
heady Boy Scout.

Troop Twelve Takes
Part in War Pageant
Troop 12 took an important part
in a war pageant held by a society
of the Memorial Lutheran Church.
The scouts demonstrated their abil
ity in flrst-ald, signaling and other
branches of scoutcraft. Beans,
rolls and coffee were served to the
participants in the pageant and the
It has been necessary, owing to
new members to start a new patrol,
of whihc Scout Meadath has been
electe.l patrol leader.
We are planning a hike to Hum
melstown Cave with Scoutmaster
Orr on the evening of September 27.
When the troop was first organized
the Eagle Patrol took the ftrst troop
hike to this cave. They enjoyed
themselves immensely. But two
members remain from this Eagle
Patrol, and the others are very anx
ious to see the cave, too.
Troop 12 is well on its feet and
ready for any work set before them
in the future. All are anxiously
waiting for their chance at the Lib
erty Loan so they can be of more
service to Uncle Sam.
" Wasted r
By Katherlne Lee Bates in Life.
London, May 6.— Lieutenant-Ge
neral Sir Robert Baden-Powell, ad
dressing a central meeting of the
Boy Scouts, at Guildhall, told of the
heroic death of a French Boy Scout
described in a letter found on the
body of a dead German. General
Baden-Powell read the letter, which
"A traitor has been shot—a little
French lad belonging to one of those
gymnastic societies which wear the
tri-color button. The poor little fel
low in his Infatuation wanted to be
a hero. A German column was
passing mlong a wooded defile, and
the boy was caught and asked
whether the French were about. He
refused to give information. Fifty
yards further on fire was opened
from the cover of the wood. The
boy was asked in French If he had
known that the enemy was in the
forest, and he did not deny it. He
went with firm step to a telegraph
post and stood tip against it, with a
green vineyard behind him,* and re
i caived the volley of the firing party
with a proud smile on his face. In
fatuated boy! It was a pity to see
such wasted courage."]
Wasted? O blind of heart, you
wrote it wasted.
The loyalty, the courage and the
Nay, you, who could but pity and
deride j
That pearl of boyhood, smiling as
he tasted
The sacrament of death; you, who
had hasted
By steep descent from where the
stars abide
To heavy darkness; you, who had
The gleam of God in your own clay,
are wasted.
Will not all lovers of the fair and
Forever see that little figure stand
Erect against the post, to die for
Her leafing April vineyard better
The beauty of that deed than your
dull hand.
Wondering at honor, counting faith
Boy Scouts Are Utility
Men in Loan Drive
Every successful team must have
a utility man.
He docs not acquire fame like the
winning pitcher.
He is not in the public eye as
consistently as the captain of a
Harvard football team.
He sacrifices his opportunity for
i becoming an outstanding specialist
j by his willingness to serve whenever,
| wherever and however he is needed.
The Boy Scouts of America are
untilty men in to-day's great game
of Beat the Beast. Always answering
the call of their captain, President
Wilson, they do not attempt to dic
! tate what they shall do nor when or
i where they shall do It.
j Thev do report to the President
i from time to time that they have a
I hunch that such and such a thing
| is the best piece of work for them
to taikle. He agrees, or suggests
| something else, according to the cir
cumstances at the time. "
They have so reputed to him,
through their National Council, con
cerning the Kourth Liberty Loan.
"We did our best as gleaners after
the reapers in thfe Third Liberty
Loan campaign—we are ready to do
the same In the fourth." is the cub
stance of their report to President
"You did well in the Third —our
Government will welcome your as
sistance in the Fourth. Report to
your local Liberty Loan Commit
tees." That is the substance of the
reply from President Wilson, and
from Secretary McAdoo of the
Treasury Department.
The local Liberty Loan Commit
tees have accepted the services of
the scouts in most places. In a few
; places they have declined. In gen
' oral they have followed the sugges
i tion of President Wilson and Secre
' tarv McAdoo.
The duty of the Boy Scouts of
America is obvious. ♦
T *ery troop and every local coun
j oil .should have a plan.
That plan shotfld be submitted
I to the local Liberty Loan Commit
| tee immediately if It has not been
| submitted already.
Need Scoutmasters
Men who are disqualified for serv
ice in the Army or Navy should re
spond right now to the call of the
Boy Scouts of America for scout
What sort of men are wanted?
Well, men who have been regular
. boys and who haven't forgotten how.
Scoutmasters that can be chums with
boys—big brothers without overdo
ing It, real pals—they want such
men. .
The boy Isn't a problem—he just
wants someone he can understand
and who understands him. Boys by
the hundreds are applying every day
and being refused because practi
cally every troop has Its maximum
strength and there are not enough
scoutmasters to take care of new
No other organization Is so well
fitted to take up this training of
boys as the scout organization,
which Is so well established that It
needs no defense or explanation. The
training It give! to boys has been
commended by the greatest public
men of America, and there is no
question but that it is competent
to solve the problem.
The requirements for a scoutmas
ter are very simple: Interest in
boys, remembering your own boy
hood; desire to serve, doing your bit
In training some soldier's younger
brother; a clean, manly character,
to influence the boys by example; a
little time, one meeting a week at
-night. No previous • scout experi
ence is necessary.
There are more than five men
available for every scoutmaster who
will be called. As has proved to be
the case heretofore and In England,
men beyond the draft age as well
as men within the draft age who
are prevented from taking an active
part 'n the war, will welcome the
opportunity of giving definite serv
ice in order that the scouting pro
gram will not suffer because of the
requirements of the wartime con
ditions. e
The scouts wear their uniforms by
authority of Ssetlon 125 of the Army
Reorganisation lAW of June I, 1916,
and are chartered by Congress.
Khaki means service!
Friday night, October 11, will bet
a big night for the scouts of Harris
burg. is the night of the big
scout rally at Grace Methodist
Church hall, in State street, near
Third. It will be a big night for
many reasons.
First of all, the medal and bars
won by the scouts in the Third Lib
erty Loan will be awarded, and it
will also be the startoft of the cam
paign by the scouts in Harrisburg
in the Fourth Liberty Loan. Now
just notice what is going to happen:
The meeting starts promptly at
7.30. Every troo|> In the city is ex
pected to be present in full force,
each scout in uniform, if he pos
sesses one, and every troop carry
ing troop flags and banners. All
troops will march to the Grace
Church hall. The method alone in
which the scouts of Harrisburg as
semble will be a good oMvertise
ment for the Loan.
The orchestra of Troop 7 will fur
nish music, and we all know just
what that orchestra can do from
the splendid showing they nade at
the rally last spring.
George S. Reinoehl, president of
the local council will give a word
of welcome, and William Jennings,
representing the government, will
award the medals and bars won in'
the Third Liberty Loan. The scouts
to whom the awards will be msCfie
are as follows:
Troop 1, Donald K. Royal: Troop
2, Bernard Colin; Troop 7, William
Quaid: Troop, 8, Edgar Spotts and
Russell Waters; Troop 10, Howard
Selsam; Troop 11, Lawrence Re
buck, Thomas Wickersliam, Clarence
Looker, William Murray and Edward
Seiglman; Troop 12, John M. Smith
and Arthur Swanson; Troop 13, Karl
Moeslein, William Fenstemacher,
Edgar Nies, Lome Bayless, William
Maglaughlin; Troop 14. John Earn
l est; Troop 16, Frank Foose; Troop
18, Meyer Gross; Troop 19, Francis
Paul; Troop 20, R. H. Swope.
The Rev. Dr. Robert Bagnell, who
has just returned from a visit to
i the trenches, will tell some of his ex
periences and will show why every
I scout should work to the limit of
| his ability to make this loan suc
i cessful. —"
As a final treat the new scout
| moving picture, "The Lion's Cubs"
(six reels) will be shown. This Is
! a wonderful film, showing the Boy
! Scouts of England guarding the
coast and capturing Germiin spies,
| and bringing out the best methods
of signaling frpm point to point and
the prope. method of using First
Aid to advantage.
You can see that it will be- a b ! g
Before the end of the evening each
scout will be furnished with a man
ual telling how to sell government
bonds. He will also repeive a bunch
f application forms. So that each
scout may know just how to gain I

Hark! Here's the Tale
of Marsh Run Battle!
Did the rest of you scouts ever
hear of the battle of Marsh Run 7
Well, there was one, and it wasn't
in the Civil War, either. It took
place last Saturday and this is how
it all happened. Some of the scouts
of TrooD 2 4 took a hike last Satur
day, accompanied by Scoutmaster
■Chalmer Groflf—but let somebody
who was along tell the story.
"There were seven of us and the
scoutmaster. We hiked over the
bridge into Cumberland county and
on to Marsh Run, where the Gov
ernment is constructing a plant
and hundreds of Mexicans, ne
groes and soldiers are at work.
When we got there they all stopped
their work to look us over, because.
1 guess, they thought we were part
of a new company of men coming.
We had a great time looking around
and seeing everything, but finally the
lunch we were carrying got too
heavy and we just had to eat it.
So we all started down towards the
river and this is why the battle was:
Scout Delbler somehow got his pick
and-span uniform splashed with
mud —he must have tripped and fell
—and by the time lunch was over
he had half the men on his side,
so we had to fight it out. Our weap
ons didn't make much noise nor
smoke, but, gee! how they did sting!
They were, guess What—horse chest
nuts! For about fifteen minutes
horse chestnuts went flying back andj
forth like heavy artillery fire. When
it was over we couldn't decide who
won, but maybe you can when I tell
you that when we started Scout
Spotts' side had seventy-five chest
nuts and when it was over .they had
four, and Scout Dode's side had
theirs and some of Scout Spotts'i
That was some bloody battle."
