It's only a tent town, to'be sure— a soon-to-be-torn-down boomlown •long the illty SchuylkttL River. But practically any of the 30,000- plus Boy Scouts and leaders who will be in residence by tonight would trade you New York, Philadelphia and a dozen oilier metropolises tor a single section of the 625- dcre tract that houses their second national jamboree. By Friday, official opening day. some 47,000 will be on hand—about five times the number of the frostbitten soldiers that stood by Gen, George Washington in these same rolling hills In the hard winter of 1777-78. It's by no means wintry as the Scouts arrive 173 years later. A merciless sun has driven the temperatures Into the 90's. Sunburn reddens the cheeks of the Scouts and scorches the bald pates of some ol their leadens. Ready for HST But they fall to with a will at the task of getting everything shipshape by opening day—when Presi- . dent Truman, if the world situation A^permits, will come here from Washington to address the Jamboree as honorary president of the Bo; Scouts of America. Trained in self-reliance, th Scouts do their own cooking and— under adult supervision—run the! own show. The menu Is standard for al troops each day. It's been tested anc pronounced filling by the Mend ham, N.J., troop, which also—by Invitation of national authorities passed OH the charcoal that Is bci: used for fires. There should he enough to eat judging from the food being trueket from nearby cities: 40,000 ,egg: 409,tMX) quarts of milk, 5,000 gal Ions of ice cream, two freight car full of breakfast cereal — thes quantities are only samples. And just in case a Scout gets hungry between meals there are a number of 80-foot snack bars featuring—you guessed it—Ice cream, soft drinks, frankfurters and hamburgers. International Troop Besides Scouts from all 48 states ' and the U.S. territories, there will be 385 scouts and leaders from 18 foreign countries and a troop representing the United Nations as a whole.
