Interest In The Boy, Scout Movement
A STRETCHER OF POLES AND COATS
Early in the Scout Training Comet
"First Aid" Information.
Some have expressed an ndveisej
opinion as to the hoys scoutiuoveiuent
011 the ground that there is loo much
fun connected with the oigani'ation
which would iutcifeie with the hoy's
regular duties. This opinion undoubt
edly grows out of a vciy much
mistaken idea of the toil wotk of
the scouts. There are few men who
can measure up to thu leqiiiretueiUs
of a ilrst class scout. We ate iufoimcd
that there is only one in this stale.
Just to show what it means to be a
scout we give the requirements ol tho
different degrees of scoutoiaft
There are three classes of scouts
among the boy scouts of America, tho
tenderfoot, secoud-elnss scout ami
first-class scoul. A tenderfoot is su
perior to the ordinary boy because of
his training. To bo a tenderfoot means
to occupy the lowest grade in scouting.
A tondeiioot on meeting certain ic
quirciiients may become a second-class
scout, and a .second class scout on
meeting another set of requirements
may become a Ilrst class scout. The
first-class scout may then qualify for
the various merit badges which are
offered for proficiency in scouting.
Tho requirements of the tenderfoot,
second-class scout and Itrst-elass scout
are as follows:
Tenderfoot To become a scout a
boy must bo at least twelve yeais of
age and must be at least twelve years
of age and must pirn a test in the
