Bailey BLYTHEVILLE GIRL SCOUTS Are following- the 1945-47 plan of work, .which is "Citizenship in Action Around the World." Anyone who is .working .with and'for youth as one.does in Girl Scouting-, feels an added tingle of urgency today. Other things can .wait. Youth can.not. The citizens who will be making homes, holding jobs, and helping to run the .world are being prepared for those jobs now. They will be prepared somehow — perhaps badly prepared—whether we do anything about i.t or not. But they can be better prepared through contact with t h e practical experience and ethical code of Girl Scouting. Why not fook around among your !adult men and women friends and begin to remind them that GirljScouting has a place and a welcome for them? We are over a million strong, but still only seven out of .every one .hundred girls in the United States are Girl Scouts. In 1947 let's try to make it possible for many more girls to have this citizenship training.

JULIETTE LOW She gave the lead. She is not dead if we but keep alive the spirit that was hers—Love, humor, courage, keenness and common sense and achievement. It was largely thanks to these qualities of Juliette Low that scouting took its root and gained widespread power for good that it holds today. The best memorial that we can raise to her is to keep her ideals alive and, in making them our own, pass them along to other girls.
