SILVER BEAVERS PRESENTED TO 2 MEN IN DISTRICT 11 "Caring for Others" Theme of Dr. Hurt's Address to Scouters "The missing ingredient in life is caring about other people--the most basic need in the world to- DF. H. day," said W. Hurt, national director of the reading program, Boy Scouts of America, at [he 25th annual meeting of the Winnebago council Thursday evening at the Hotel Hanford, "The spiritual essence of the scouting program is caring about other people--the good turn notion---without which you cannot hope to have world peace." The talk was the climax of the banquet program, which was attended by 275 persons, the largest number ever attending the annual event. It was also the farewell party for Scout Executive Eatle K. Behrend, who will go to the regional office at Kansas City after 8 years of service here, and the welcoming of James IV. Norfolk, the new scout executive for the Winnebago council, w h o comes to Mason City from Waterloo. Highlights on the program were the awarding of the silver beaver to A. Wartnaby o£ Sheffield and T. L .Connor of Mason City by Judge W. P. Butler and Dr. J. C. Powers of Hampton. The awarding of. the twin honors closed a scout style show, which featured the latest fashions in what the well dressed cub, den chief, den mother, scout, senior scout, scoutmaster, sea scout and leader, air scout a n d . leader and explorer scout are wearing. ' T believe everything done the past year has been profoundly worthwhile if only one young man had his sights lifted," · said Dr. Hurt, who told the people of scouting that they were part of an enterprise offering opportunity to scores. "We're part of something that is pulling America closer together. "Your greatest product in Iowa is not the produce of the soil, but your people," said Dr; Hurt, himself a native lowan. "Your greatest problem is concerned with, these young men and women. There are 3 million 9 year olds this year. Next year they will be 10 and there will be another group -of 9 year olds.-This job oi scouting is endless, but that's life "The greatest job o£ civilization is to raise up our successors. Life becomes civilization when we consider tomorrow. There is our opportunity--to raise our successors To make them human--to care about other people!" Dr. Hurt said that the preseni generation is living in a confusec world, out that out o£ this is coming an appreciation of youth. The world'is in this mess because "we haven't the moral fibre we learned at our mother's knee." Scouting, the speaker told his audience, would have its effect on the men coming home in the postwar period. They must have a chance to do things voluntarily, to make decisions. He coveted, he said, for these young men a chance to make good and develop; appreciation of finer things; an opportunity to have man friends; to instill a love of democracy; a touch of religion in their lives; and a happy existence "These things elevate character," said Dr. Hurst. "They are the same thing as sunshine to a plant It is a chance to do things for other people." New officers for 1945 were installed by Dr. E. #. Phillips of Garner. The new officers are Dr J. JL. Pauley, president; Ralph Floyd-Jones, vice president; Dr. J C. Powers, Hampton, vice president; Jay M. Tubbesintr, vice president; F. C. Heneman, com missioner and A. J. Marshall treasurer.
