The above figures prove that Scouting is reaching many more boys than it
did a year ago. The next question is, "Docs it have any effect on a boys life?" The
men who are in touch with the wirk all of the time can cite some very outstanding
cases where the boys life has been very materially affected but to advertise them
would not be in keeping with the Scouting spirit so some recommendations written
by teachers are printed below. These are on file in the Scout office with tho signa
tures and will be shown to anybody caring to see them.
I have found that boys can be appealed to through the Scout Laws and that a
promise given "On My Honor" means much to a scout. Miss Irene McVaney.
From the schoolroom standpoint real scouts can readily be detected. In many
instances a marked improvement can be noticed since there has been a closer coop
eration between the scout leaders and the teachers. Mrs. R. C. Casteel.
Scout work has a splendid influence, upon the boys of tho school in both con
duct and class work. Miss II. 0. Brandes.
I believe the organization of Boy Scouts to be the best of its kind for develop
ing boys. Boys who can not well be reached by teachers are more easily and suc
cessfully influenced by officers and members of this body composed of the boys them
selves. Its purpose is to develop boys physically, mentally and morally and results
prove that boys are being trained in all three of these ways most efficiently and
successfully. Its value and aid to the school can not be overestimated.
Miss C. Murrlsh.
Since my coming in personal cintact with the work accomplished by the Boy
Scout organization, I am pleased to stato that the Boy Scouts of St. Patrick's school,
North Platte, Nebraska, have shown a gr.eater willingness to yield to discipline,
have been more dependable in shouldering personal responsibility and have mani
fested a greaer desire to be helpful both to teachers and companions since becoming
members of that organization. Sister M. Raymond, Principal.
The scout movement has done a wonderful work for the Junior High. The
scout oath and laws have a real meaning to miu y of the Leys, by tho result which can
bo seen in their school work and deportment In' the study and ciait- room. This at
titude of the boys toward the discipline of the school and their studies has increased
the efficiency of the school very much, not only helping themselves but all other stu
dents of Junior High. I certainly am strong for tho Boy Scouts.
George I. Myers, Principal.
If we can raise four thousand dollars this month and put on a first class coun
cil it will bo possible to reach double the number of boys and in a doubly efficient
Scouting is not a charity proposition, it is an investment in tho boyhood of
