A. camp. at Holbert Lake, under the leadership of H. S. Curry, secretary of the boys' work of the T. M. C. A., who is In charge of the camp this year, started out for an over - night hike to the Dela ware river and Hancock, N. T. The day was unusually warm and before the boys had gene far they felt that they were near'y roasted. Rations for two meals were taken along In the knapsacks and the boys did full justice to these .two meals. When a dis tance from camp where the campers turned off into a side path, four of the boys got lost and were not found again until they reach, d Hancock. As usual they had a little rain during the afternoon, but not enough to throw a damper on the hike. When they reached Randall Lake they rested a while and almost all of the boys went In for 'n. A little farther on they pass , - - - - - ' - , l 'ed snother lake and found It one of ( 'h Prettiest p'aces i anywhere on the hike. About four miles farther on they came to the Delaware river, and It seemed strange to the boys to realise that on our side of the river was Pennsylvania and just across on tha opposite bank was New Tork state. ' - Soon after reaching the river bank Mr. Curry sent one of the boys back about a quarter of a mile to a farm house to get twenty quarts of milk and four dozen eggs. On the way back the load got too heavy for this boy. and as he Is a boy scout and well versed in signaling, he uaed his scout whistle and signaled back, "Send some one to help me." This message was caught perfectly and help was sent at There Is a big pine forest near - the place where the boys camped and all nanus went out and cathered Dins needles to make comfortab'e beds. During ths night boys were kept on guard duty, serving three - quarters of an nour at a lure r at a tlire. At six o'clock, all were i and busy cooking bteakfast and at clock started for Hancocit, reaching up ociocic started lor Hancocit, reaching mere aooui Most or tne boys made a rush for the candy shops and had a treat of candy, sundaes, stc. Returning, the boyi left Hancock at 19 o'clock and hiking at a lively pace, reached camp at 1:30. ACCEPT PLAINS PASTOR FOR Y. M. C. A.

The first contingent to leave here went to State college. April 29, and their , , , . , 7 . minimum period will expire next week.

Of this number 20 are stationed in Lackawanna, while the others ara located in nearby counties, on Liberty camps and individual farms. Ben F.
