9AGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW* IATURDAY, JULY 1, 1»M HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Shadow of World War III Hangs Over Tents of Scout Jamboree VALIJET FORGE, Pa., (fl 1 )—The American manhood of tomorrow Is proudly here today, camped in « Tale of fhe past that may also point *o bivouacs in the future. You can look as far as your eyes can grasp across these reaching hills »nd break your heart with terror «nd hope for what you see. What lies in sight? Tents and ttpees holding some 47,000 American Boy Scouts and comrades from 20 foreign countries. They are mostly kids between the nges of 12 and 16 who came hero for fun and frolic and pageantry and to show off their lore of wood and field and itrcam. And the youngsters have lived completely up to the 40-year-old scout motto: "Be Prepared." In a lew days they have built up a camp base so neat and well-policed it would win praise from even the most brass-happy Army commander. West Point cadets could hardly do better—and even they wouldn't have the same quick enthusiasm that goes beyond discipline. But it is an old and sudden irony of history that has overtaken the Boy Scouls gathered for their second great national Jamboree at this spot where George Washington and the country lie founded went through H wintry agony of doubt before the ragged "continental army took up the march toward eventual victory. 'Valley Forge ol Spirit' For now, 172 years later to the month from the time Washington's soldiers trooped from here into battle, the nation has taken action after another long Valley Forge of the spirit. This time it Is toward a summer decision in far off Korea. What was just a cold war before has suddenly become a military heat wave now. America has had to adopt that Scout motto: "Be Prepared." It has also forcibly started to carry out International pledges consistent with its own national safety which are In keeping with the Scout oath: "to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, [iien- tally awake, and morally straight." Scoutmasters Worried The scouts have been too busy exploring the Vnlley Forge Area to pay much heed to the battle developments In the Far East. A Jamboree is an exciting thing, and after all they are boys not men. It Is the first trip away from home for many. But the Korean war has many a scoutmaster worried. They ask newsmen repeatedly: "What's happened? What's behind It all?" And to a visitor who has seen war there is a kind of shadow over this encampment of youth, youth so Innocent It should never be bruised but should go on having fun this way forever. That shadow is'what the future may hold, not so much for them • lone but for all boys everywhere who must grow into men and perhaps dare what men have so often been called upon to face. But tomorrow is another time. Now is the time of happy Jamboree. And the Scouts trail each other skillfully through the forest, cheerful as bear cubs at play, and come home at dusk and sing In comradeship around the new camp fires of Valley Forge, wondering If the ghosts of Washington's old warriors still linger by Mount Misery. TAMPA. Ha., July 1. m—Four, crewmen are missing from a Boeing 13-50 bomber which crashed and exploded after catching fire during lakeoff last night. Eight members of the 12-man crew are known to have parachuted to safety. None of the survivors was seriously injured.

One. other was picked up by a small boat. The blazing ship was an amazing ipcctaclc as it shot through the air.

Air Force officials Imposed Ihe strictest security measures here ince the war on newsmen seeking nformation alxnit the crash. Russian Delegate Cancels Vacation . LAKE SUCCESS. July 1.
