Advantages Of Program For Boys And Adults Pointed Out We Congratulate the BOY SCOUTS of AMERICA on their42ndAnniversary The Boy Scout movement offers excellent preliminary t r a i n i n g so essential to success in any career.

Dyke Lumber Co. #9 St. Charles Phone 2727 Johnnie MeWhorter, field Scout executive, today pointed out that Scouting can do things for both adults and buys. For adults, he snld, Scouting gives a, chance for social contact and cooperation. It gives the joy of being able to .serve others; it helps lo build homes and insliliilions.

If adults live the ideals of the Seoul OH In and law themselves, Scouting inakro them higher types of citizens--the aim of Scouting, MeWhorter said. Scouting gives boys something useful to do in n way which brings them adventure, fun and romance he asserted. It aids them i n . l i v i n g a useful life today and prepares them for a-better future. It gives them useful .skills and activities and ;fffords thorn stimulation to advance in life objectives by recognizing their efforts. '.'Scouting g\vcs an opportunity for boys to meet the best men in the community and profit by their examples; it gives emphasis on persona! health habits, gives proper physical development.

The home, he says, needs supplemental help. "I t h i n k of Cub Scouting as a great supplement reaching into approximately 800,000 homes. I see father, mother and youngster having f u n , having enjoyment, helping the boy, bul ju.n as important, helping to build and m a i n t a i n Ihc American home of character."
