Girl Scouts of U.S. Receive $20,000 Gift A two-year project to expand and strengthen Girl Scouting in the state of Iowa has been made possible by a grant of $20,000 to the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., by The Frank Phillips Foundation. Mrs. Hoy F. Layton, national president of the Girl Scouts, announced yesterday In outlining the state-wide program. This support, Mrs. Layton pointed out, renews a long interest by the Phillips Foundation in Girl Scout work in the middle and southwest. Well known for its activity in behalf of young people, the Foundation has supported pro* grams that prepare for the responsibilities of citizenship. The grant will be used to make Girl Scouting available to girls in all parts of Iowa. At the present time, 32,000 of the Scout-age girls in Iowa are Girl Scouts. * * * The new project will provide Girl Scout activities to many thousands more, bringing- the to> tal number to an estimated 50,000 girls in the state, Mrs. Layton said. It will also result in the establishment of camping facilities for Girl Scouts where none now exist and will give Girl Scouts more opportunities to take part in regional, national and international Girl Scout events. The over-all program will be under the direction of Mrs. Elinor Webster, member of the national Girl Scout staff. Two new Girl Scout councils will be established in western and central Iowa. The Iowa Great Lakes Council will provide Scout activities for girls in Dickinson, Emmet, Kossuth, Clay and Palo Alto counties. Current Girl Scout membership in this area is 1,032 The new council will be able to provide leadership and Scout activities for more than 7,000 girls * • * The second council to be estab lished will be the North Central Iowa Council covering the counties of Pocahontas, Humbolt. Wright, Calhoun, Webster, Carroll and Greene. The council is expected, to make Girl Scouting available to more than 12,000 girls. Current Girl Scout membership in these counties is 1,413. In addition, Mrs Layton declared, existing Girl Scout Councils will be expanded to include 22 additional counties. "In two years, we expect that Girl-Scout councils, will ..coyer the whole state," she said, "so that any girl between' the ages of seven and seventeen who wishes to be a Girl Scout may join a troop of Brownie Scouts, Intermediate Scouts, Senior Scouts, Wing Scouts or Mariner Scouts."
