While in the council for almost eight years, Creamer served all three districts, served as camp director of both Camp Warren Levis and the Marvin W. Swaim Wilderness .Camp, was adviser to the Order of the Arrow, and was program director. Creamer told the board that "scouting is a great help to our country. If enough of the right people will get involved, scouting can be of more help in improving our country." Following Creamer's remarks, Edwin K. C. remarks, Edwin K. C. Cun- the council, expressed his appreciation for Creamer's valuable assistance during his stay in the council. At the same time, Cunning h a m announced that Richard Montgomery, 22, has been hired as an executive trainee.

Regarding Boy Scout growth, Cannady said the goal for Cub Scouts was 1,920, and 2,008 were registered/ The goal was 1,695 Boy Scouts, but only 1,510, were signed and 285 Explorers were sought and only 210 were advanced. There was a goal of 149 units, but only 146 were registered. The goal was 77 trained units but 78 were attained. They were after 40 standard units and attained 48. ' H a 1 Belle, treasurer, reported that even though the summer camp program had a $4,500 deficit, the council will have a break even budget for the year. He said the difference was made up in trusts and gifts made to the council from outside the United Fund area. Even though the camp operated at a deficit, camp committee chairman Ed Kozkky has announced that both Camp Warren Levis and the Swaim Wilderness Camp in Missouri will be operated for seven weeks each, next year. Camp Warren Levis in Godfrey will begin its- operation on July 4 for seven consecutive weeks. The .Swaim Camp will begin operation July 3 for the seven weeks, but there will be a flexible schedule, allowing units to come and go when they want. In other announcements, V. J. Brazier, council commissioner, announced the district commissioners. They are Donald Page for the Lincoln-Douglas District; Warsen Cress for Ft. Russell, and Paul D'cvor for Pere Marquette. The annual meeting of the council has been set for Jan. 26 at College Avenue Presbyterian Church.

Performances of the girls are a popular entertainment feature at the high school and a real winner with any audience with their precision marching, dancing, intricate maneuvers and gymnastics. Besides the sheer joy of performing and the satisfaction of captivating an audience, many side benefits are derived from the long hours of patient practice. It broadens their field of experience, gives them a feeling of contributing to a group and is . excellent training in cooperation and team spirit, according to their instructor, Mrs. Shirley McCune. "The drill program is coupled with physic:)! education instruction anci provides training in the execution of movement and agility, and improves coordination, grace, poise and body carriage. • "Developing creativity is another benefit. The girls use their own ingenuity and imagination in creating their number such as "Top Hat", "Umbrella Dance", "Toy Soldiers", and ball gymnastic routine. "Our routines are difficult and require sincere con- centration'and a willingness to work .hard, but they love it. "Belonging much to each of the girls that discipline has never been a problem.
