THE RACINE JOURNAL-TIMES SUNDAY BULLETIN, MAY 3, 1938, THREE NEW PLAN OFFERS REDUCTION IN CAMP FEE TO BOY SCOUTS Troops Will Be Allowed to Be on Own at Chickagami. Opportunities for Scouts to camp at Camp Chickagami for as little as a dollar a week have been announced. Camp Chickagami is located on the east shore of Norton's lake, one mile east of Burlington in Racine county. The camp committee is encouraging troop leaders to arrange for their entire troop to camp together under the troop's own leadership. Four different plans are being offered at four different prices based on what the troop will provide for itself and on what the council is expected to provide. Individual Scouts may attend camp as in the past, if they do not belong to a troop which is to attend as a unit. Camp Opens June 28. When a troop comes to camp it will move into a camp site all its own. There it will camp under the direction of its own leaders. Camp Chickagami will open on Sunday, June 28, for six one-week periods. The permanent all-summer camp staff will be present. Their work will be to assist and supplement the troop leaders who come . out with their troops rather than handle the camp on a mass basis, as was the case in previous years. Scout Executive Arthur M. Gruhl will serve as camp director. His assistants will be Robert Haight and Robert Bowman, who will be waterfront director and commissary officer respectively. Scoutmaster Al Roberts will be leader of the provisional troop and Scoutmaster Ed Russell will be quartermaster while Chef Adrian Shields will be back on the job in the kitchen. One or two adidtions may be made to the staff. New Camp Layout. The camp will be laid out so as to comprise three units. Two sep. arate units, one made up of wall tents and the other of the tepees, will serve as separate troop camp sites. The third camp site will be for the so-called provisional troop which will be for the accommodation of Scouts whose troops are not going out as a troop and also for such boys who might stay for more than one period of camp. When a troop comes to camp its site equipped with the following council equipment: one tent for each eight boys, a smaller tent for troop leaders, a cot for each boy, one straw tick for each boy, a lantern for each tent, a rake and broom for each ttnt, a mess tent and kitchen fly for each four patrols, chinaware, knives, forks, and spoons for each camper, two garbage cans for each four patrols, one wash boiler for scalding dishes, one dry ice box, one table for each patrol and one work bench for craft activities. A troop coming to camp must provide its own pots and pans for the preparation of food, its own first aid kit and mess kits for individual Scouts. Optional equipment which the troop may bring along is additional tentage desired, special game equipment, a trek cart, radio, stunt night paraphernalia, boats or canoes for their exclusive use and any other equipment desired for special program features. Supervised Swimming. All troops camping at Chicka- gami will be together for swimming. All activity in or on the water will be under the constant supervision of Bob Haight, an American Red Cross examiner. Plan number one is on the ba- sis of a dollar a. week. This dol- ler per boy is to partly defray- the overhead maintenance of the camp, such as the maintenance of equipment, insurance, firewood, dry ice, straw for the ticks, and kerosene for the lantern, all supplied by the council. The Scoutmaster of the troop or some other responsible adult selected by the troop committee will be in complete charge of a troop camp responsible for the program. The troop will provide all its own food and cooking utensils and the cooking will be done by the Scouts themselves or by a cook brought to the camp by the troop. At least eight Scouts of a troop must be in camp at one time with an adult leader in order to take advantage of the dollar per boy week basis in plan one. Plan two costs $3.10 a week for each boy. One dollar is for the maintenance and service fee and the $2.10 is for seven meals at thirty cents a meal prepared by Chef Shields, delivered to the troop and served in the troop's mess tent. Seven meals provided by the camp will be the Sunday evening meal, and a noon meal for each week day. The troop will be responsible for its own breakfasts and suppers. Here again at least eight Scouts from a troop with an adult leader must be present to operate on plan two. 110 Scouts Registered. Plan three calls for $6 a week for each boy. On this plan the council provides and prepares all of the food. At least eight Scouts from a troop and an adult leader must be at camp in order to come under plan three. Plan four is a provisional troop camp which will cost $6.50 per week for each boy. The provisional troop is for the accommodation of individual Scouts whose leaders find it impossible to come with them. One hundred and ten Scouts are already registered for Camp Chickagami. The camp committee sent a questionnaire to Scoutmasters of the council asking their opinion on the troop camping plan. Their replies favored it. • GO TO GOODRICH FOR New Tires E-Z TERMS BACK OF ZAHNS j What Our Readers Have to Say (Continued from Page I) the guilty person reads this and returns the money because we need it badly. (V .A. V. LaSalle St.) Puzzle: Do Police Obey Parking Rules? Dear Editor: Here's hopes you will liave room for me. I have noticed by listening to the Chicago and Milwaukee court that the judge and police officers certainly don't leave any loop holes which is a ffood thing, or too many would slip through. But when a police officer parks his car (No. 5762') on Ninth street where it says (NO PARKING ON THIS SIDE OF STREET) and thinks nothing of it, I guess that's the limit. It isn't a matter of length, it's a matter of parking. (A. H., Geneva Pt.) effectiveness of a Journal-Times want ad. I called the Journal-Times office about 10 oclock Friday morning to insert an ad of a car for sale, and by five oclock Friday afternoon I had sold the car; so only eight hours after I called the Journal- Times to have the ad inserted, the car was sold. If that isn't super service then I'm wrong. Thanks for our Bulletin. . (B. D. R., State St.) What Should Renters $ Do With Children? ;f Dear Editor: I have a pet peeve which I am dedicating to all home owners and realtors: Why are all the want ads in the paper for flats and homes for adults only? What are people with children supposed to do? I think some people with a family can keep a home in a nicer condition than some couples for they aren't so settled as a couple with children. I hope to see this in print. Thank you also for the Sunday Bulletin which we enjoy very much. 1 (J. J. F., Center St.) Jumps OH Buses to Escape Pinching Dear Editor: Just as most people, I also have my pet peeve. Have you had any close calls getting off the buses? I have, and it isn't a comfortable feeling. Time and again I have gotten off the bus just in time, and usually I jump off to be sure that I do get off safely. Several times I have seen people have their coats caught and'once I saw a man get halfway out when- the door closed on him. I do wish that the bus drivers would Journal-Times Ad Effective — and How!

People who find stray doss around their homes and tak« them for a ride are pests especially when they dump them near the Taylor orphanage. We have had more trouble with them chasing and killing our geese and other fowl. - Of late people have let their dogB loose near us and these have bothered us considerably. It, ia quite annoying to have the fowls killed In this manner when our caretaker and boys have worked so hard to raise them. Please, folks, won't you take care of your dogs and pick a better way to dispose of bothersome atray dogs? Thanks to a fine paper. (SI.
