That uniform ^ a symbol of manhood. The Scout compass, with its lour cardinal points Ls similar to the mariners' compass, By mis Scout co.npass he is able to find his way over ;'LIfc*s Sea" Just ns the mariner uses his to seek his way on the hi?h seas. With the center of the compass us the pivotal point, you will find the Scout's pledge. "To do his Best." The Scout's honor Is the needle »-hlch always points to his "Scout ] duty." At the north pole, "duty to Ood:" Rt the point of the rising sun. "Duty to Country," at the south pole, "Ditty to Others," and at the setting sun, "Duty to Self." Between the four points are the 12 Scout laws. Tests Of achievement and character must be met to paw from one to another of the six scout ranks. When a. boy goes into Scout work he must prove beyond any tjcnibt that he has put the Seoul Law Into practice In his everyday life. Their motto "Be Prepared" doesn't, designate any one certain factor. It I means to be prepared for anything that comes their way to help their fellowman and to help themselves. He is called a "tenderfoot" for his first month. In his oath he makes three pledges: 1. To do my duty to God and my country, and (o obey the Scout law. 2. To help other people at all times. 3. To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. Scouts Xfm-Seclari;tn The Boy Scout'on Is neither military nor antl-inllitnry.
