It featured many items used in Scout ceremonies. At upper right, troop 70 of the local Scouts had an attractive display that featured numerous drawings and many pieces of handwork by the troop. At lower left, troop 53 of the Swea City Boy Scouts are shown as they arranged a mass of collections that ranged from butterflies to Indian symbols. At lower right, a Pocahqh'tas Scout troop puts the finishing touches on their camping out display. In the center, two youngsters wait patiently while Cub Scouts from Pack 70, Algona, get a puppet show ready to roll.
