Talk about style! Well those Scouts
of 13 who paid a visit to the Scout
Camp over the Fourth surely went
in style. They were met at Boyd
Memorial Building by two large
touring cars and started forth look
ing like millionaires. They arrived

22, talk of the good eats they had
just put away, and to get the news
that they were to sleep in the hay
(if anybody ever says "hay" to
Troop 13 again that person will be
mobbed.) Scout Moeslein declares
that the hay tickled his back, Just
like cooties, and it tickled Scout

The Scout Commissioner's Good Turn
Every Scout must do a good turn
daily, and this includes not only
Scouts but also Scout officials.
This is the beginning of a good
turn story;
The scene is laid at Camp
Time—6.ls last Friday morn
Characters are Scout Com
missioner German, Bill Ma
glauchin and a mob of, fifty
Reveille was sounded and Bill was
still snoring soundly. Suddenly he
was awakened by his blankets dis
appearing to the ground. He was
out of bed like a flash for visions
of no breakfast came before his
eyes. As he stooped to pick up
those blankets there was a sudden
R-l-P in the rear. Bill stopped
right then and there to find out
as a penalty for making it a sleep
less night.
We went to Carlisle on the Fourth
to see the hugh celebration there.
Toward evening we returned to
camp and after eating suppei visited
the city of Mount Holly. The peo
ple there never knew theie was a
war because ice cream sundaes are
the same Rize they were in 1914.
About 9 P. M. when Harrlsburg
was roasting we pulled- double
blankets over ourselves, and In spite
of shivers, went into the soundest
sleep a Scout ever had, with the re
sult that the next morning we needed
what that noise was. To his intense
chagrin he discovered that theß-I-P
was really all it said tt was, and
that in some manner he had torn
the seat of his trousers. Poor Bill!
After many attempts at trying to
repair them himself he was forced
to admit his disaster. Here is where
the Scout Commissioner lived up to
his office, by coming to Bill's res
cue. He called for more thread
and seated himself on a log. taking
Bill over his knee in order to make
a good job of it. Now Bill is none
too steady anyway, and something
on the road distracted hie atten
tion. Forgetting the circumstances,
he loudly yelled, "Yea, fellers, look"
and gave a Jump of joy, which was
Immediately followed by a deep
groan and exclamation of disgust.
"Hey, Mr. Scout Commissioner,
you don't have to sew them to me.
I've got another pair."
an extra call to stir our desire for
eats. This was our last day tnr camp
and after eating two dandy meals
we returned home byway of the
famous trolley line.

Scouts Are Getting
Plenty of Publicity
To-day I read a story In which the
author stated that Boy Scouts grow
fat on the memory of a kind deed.
That sounds queer doesn't it. I know
I've never yet seen anyone who
would get fat on the memory of the
huckleberry pie he had for dinner.
No, he'd be more likely to get thin
from wishing for more of that same
pie. But think it over, fellows, and
you'll see just what he means by that
statement. He must be a pretty
good old scout himself. I don't know
whether you know it or not, but it
is almost impossioie nowadays to
pick up a paper oi magazine which
does not mention Boj Scouts in some
manner. How does it feel to be
popular? Ask a Scout. He knows.
That was a very fine good turn
you fellows did for ilia Chamber of
Commerce last Thursday, and I know
you must all have gained a little
weight for over the Fourth.
The boyg from Troop 13 who
spent the glorious day at Camp
Hacoboscam must have had a pretty
fine time. Every day since, a differ
ent one comes in l , and asks for pen
cil and paper to write up his story
of that memorable trip. Some of
their stories are on this very page.
And by the way, speaking of
camp, it gets mighty cold down there
at night so I'm told. We just got
in a new shipment of blanket pins, i
so if you're planning to go down in
the future, come around and supply
yourself before you go.
The Scout Page is beginning to
dwindle again In size. Get busyl
Summer is really the best time for

Is no school work to prevent you
from writing up your little story.

Troop Sixteen Has
Total of 60 Members ;
We have completed our rcgislra-'
tion questionaire. How's that for
spelling it right out? And find that
we have 28 active Scouts, 3 asso
ciates, and 4 officers, a total of 35.!
Including 25 Cubs wo are just 60 '
strong. I-ast Friday our room was'
so cool that we hated to leave it. '
That's a fact. Give us a basement
to meet in and we are happy. Our i
election resulted as follows: Presi
dent, Hester Mehring, Scribe, Huston
Treasurer, Foose, and Chaplain!
Kidman. The merits for June were
as follows: First, Foose 496, Second
Wilbur Criswell 4461, Third, Cleori
Criswell, 460.
The Eagles had an overnight hike
to the Hut last week and raised so
much dust going through New Cum
berland that the correspondent of
the Evening News devoted a few
lines to the affair.
Foose and Saunders are still at
Camp and it looks as if we'll have
to go get them if we expect them to
come to the meeting tonight. But
I don't blame them I had a good
ten days of it.
Tonight the officers will be in
stalled nn dthere will be other
things too numerous to mention to
keep us busy. Some changes have
been made in the Patrols. You'll
be interested in this. Seven-thirty
is the hour.
Boy Scouts Learn
About Signalling
We had a snappy meeting last
week—only twelve present, but I'm
sure every fellow was glad to get
In the cool basement. We learned
something about signalling. Mr
Mehring talked to us about twenty
minutes, and some of the fellows
were able to receive short, easy
words before he had finished. He
has promised us some more, real
soon. We played a lively game of
our favorite Puss the Belt. Ktchard

that none of the fellows want to pay
any dues until Treußurer Crego
comes home from cump, but we
should worry. Happy-go-lucky

Richard Adams has returned front

we'll huve a new supply of one

you need one.

Troop No. 2 Loses Its Former
Troop 2 is pleuscd to announce j
that wfc have procured Daniel i
Rumpf as scoutmaster. Mr. Toor, j
our former scoutmaster was forced
to resign because of press of busi- j
ness duties. We accepted his resig
nation with a great dea! of regret,
because he was the kind of leader
that boys can't help admiring.
However, we are veiy fortunate in
obtaining the serviceo of Mr. Rumpf
who was at one time Assistant Scout
master to Dr. J. H. Fager, now a
deputy commissioner. Dr. Fager
and Mr. Rumpf had charge of the
first troop organized in this city. This
Troop had over one hundred mem
bers listed on the roll and aii those
boys were scouts in the true sense
of the word. You can readily un
derstand why I say (hat we aie

Our re-organizai.i> t meeting was
very successful. Everything was run
off snappy. A new scribe. Earl
Handler, was elected and a tempor
ary executive committee consisting
of Ben Devi, Sam Isaacman, Arthur
Rosen, Earl Handler, and Bernard
Koplovitz was appointed. A motion
was passed that the meetings should
be presided over by one of the boys
instead of by the Scoutmaster, and
that each boy should inko a turn
in having charge of a .nceting Ihe
next meeting will therefore he in
charge of Ben Devi. The pui pose of
this is in order that the boys may be
come more fumiliar with matters of
law and order.
