' The Boy Scouts of America have adopted from now on the International International handshake of Boy Scouts, as far as using their left hand' is concerned. . Ever since Scouting has been in America, the Scouts have had their own peculiar handshake, using the right hand, giving prominence prominence to a pecaliar position of the three fingers, which stand for three points of the Scout Oath. Now they have added the feature of using the same grasp peculiar to , the Boy Scouts of America, only doing it with the left hand. At the International Conference of Scout Officials, which was held in Paris last summer, it was noted that Scouts of all foreign nations shake with their left hand. Another International feature which the Boy Scouts of America have officially adopted is the star to be worn on the uniform designating designating length of service. Each year that a boy or official serves he will be entitled to wear a star over the left breast pocket of his scout shirt. Five of these stars may be replaced with a five-year five-year five-year star. This new regulation regulation does 'not take the place of the service stripes which have been in vogue, nor of the veteran five-year five-year five-year and ten-year ten-year ten-year pins. It simply supplements supplements them.
