Though they have received a very minimum amount of service and supervision from the Council Headquarters, they have succeeded in weathering the storms of misfortune for the reason that there always seemed to appear in the nick of time sufficient Leadership to keep the Troop registered and in good standing. Over a year ago Bruno .Meyer was- elected District Chairman and Professor H. A. Sparrwas elected Vive-Chairman and Chairman of the Court of Honor, but because of the depression In the production of coal, the resulting economic condition made It impossible to proceed further In the development of the District Committee. However Bruno Meyer and Professor Sparr, together with their Troop Committee, and the splendid services of Mr. Hazen Curtis, has made possible the continued success of one of the best Troops in the Council. Eagle Scout, Walter Meyer, con of Bruno Meyer, has distinguished himself as a Camp Leader among the Scouts ot the Piasa Council when he was a member of the Camp Staff during the season of 1929. Walter Is now registered as an Assistant Scoutmaster and was due largely to his efforts, together with the efforts of the above mentioned men • that a splendid project in bridge-building could be made possible as part of the Second Annual Jamboree. As soon as the economic condition comes back to normal, we are assured the men of Staunton will rally to the cause of Scouting, and the need of it for more boys, which will result hi at least one more Troop. The Council Records Indicate that there has been almost one-hundred boys served in Scouting in the last eight years. of I
