H Girl Scouts Continue 50-Year Tradition Of International Friendship Program A half - dozen teen - age girls, chattering and laughing, crowd the rails of the ocean liner and wave excitedly to parents and friends on the pier as the ship moves out to sea. Although they have never met before, they treat each other j girls like old friends. This is not surprising, for they all wear the same trim green uniform of Senior Girl Scouts. These girls are .continuing a 50- year-old Girl Scout tradition of international friendship. Each year, hundreds of teen-age girls and adults participate in an international exchange program sponsored by Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. and carried out with other member countries of the World 'Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. The movement in the World Association's 51 member nations numbers more than five million girls and adults. International Projects Carefully selected Senior Scouts participate in international encampments and other events both here and abroad. They engage in international service p r o j e c ts which offer them an opportunity to meet and share experiences with yirls of different cultures. In the last few years, these junior ambassadors of good will have traveled to Canada, Mexico, European countries, Latin American countries. Australia and the Far East. In turn. Girl Guides from 25 countries attended the 1959 Senior Kound-up in Colorado and the All- States Wilderness Encampment last year in Oregon. They have shared "with American Girl Scouts in service projects including one for handicapped children in the eastern states in 1960, another for underprivileged children of Puerto Rico in 1959. ; Many of these girls attend international gatherings held at the j international resident centers maintained for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts by the World Association. . , j •'Our Cabana," near Cuernavaca, Mexico, and "Our Chalet" in Adelboden, Switzerland. Manyvwho are visiting in England stay, while in London, at the Worlds-Association hostel. Our Ark. Most of the ex­ changees enjoy home hospitality uith Giri Guide or Girl Scout families during part of their trip. Friendship Fund The major portion of the participants' expenses is provided by the Juliette Low World Friendship fund named in honor, of the founder of Girl Scouting in the United States. The fund is supported by voluntary contributions —. pennies, nickels and dimes — from Scouts of all ages across the United States. Exchange programs under the Juliette Low World Friendship are not limited to the girls. Adult members of the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides are • sent on special three-month assignments with sister organizations in "other countries or participate more briefly in international meetings for adults in the movement. They share their own special knowledge and abilities with local Girl Guide or Girl Scout groups and acquire new skills and understanding of other .peoples. In addition to the formal exchange program, more than 1,200 tour abroad each year as members of individual troops. They spend at least two years preparing for these trips and earn the major .part of their expenses at such jobs as ibaby sitting, mowing lawns, washing-icars and organizing community suppers and Saturday afternoon entertainments for younger children. Practice at Home Girl Scouts also .practice international Friendship at home. Many troops across the country — Brownies, Intermediates and Seniors—concentrate on learning all they can about other parts of the world and their rich diversity of cultures. They hostess international visitors, learn foreign languages, dances and songs, and become pen pals of girls in other lands. Internationally-minded girls are encouraged to explore foreign service vocations, both in government and in private enterprise. As'almost three and one-half million Girl Scouts observe their Golden anniversary on March 12, they will also be celebrating 50 years of international friendship.

The world of today "has so imuch to offer—opportunity, choice, challenge. Do you find that • one life- lime just isn't enough to learn all you need to learn, to do all you want to do—in short, to become the best, the happiest, the most successful human being you can be? In our unending search for self- understandment, self-development and self-fulfullment, we fill up whatever spare time we have, and yet, there are vast areas left untouched. Some day, we promise ourselves, we will study foreign language. Some day, we will conquer ' unwanted habits. Some day, we will improve our sales technique, or our memory, or make more money.
