The President, Mrs. Gertrude

ceremonies for the evening. After
briefly outlining the policies of
the organization and the future
plans to put Baldrige “over the
top”, Mr. Horton introduced the
speaker of the evening, who in a
clean cut and convincing manner,
formally set forth upon his cam
paign to carry the North side.
It is this writer’s opinion, that
after hearing such a sincere ap

MacBaldrige hasn’t a chance to
lose; nothing short of success is
his. We have an organization of
Power and believe me these wom

men start out to do something,
they usually accomplish their
mission when thoroughly organ

Mr. Joe Rosenbloom. Dr. John
A. Singleton, Candidates for State
Senator and State Representative
respectively, spoke in glowing
oratory and as very sincere and
capable champions of the cause
of the “Grand Old Party” and for
Baldrige and themselves. Mrs.
Elise Turner and Attv. Ray Wil
liams spoke also for the Republic

Our Trip to Camp Gifford
We arrived Monday, August 8,
at Camp Gifford. The first thing
we did was unpack our grips,
clean our cabins and then wait
for the bugle to blow breakfast,
gee the boys were hungry. We
had cereal, eocoa and toast for
breakfast, after breakfast we had
rest period we could then go to
the candy store and draw out
books to read. We had sinkers
and floaters to swim a half hour
and then the bugle would blow
for swimmers swim. Some of the
boys would try and swim their
fifty yards which would help
them to become a first class scout.
After swimming classes there
would be miscellaneous, do what
.Vou please. After that assembly
that means to come get help on
what you need to pass tenderfoot,
second class or first class tests.
After miscellaneous we had gen
eral swim, that was when the fun
came. We played water tag and
diving, after each swim we took a
shower then dressed in our scout
uniforms for retreat, after retreat
we ate supper. We could again
do as we pleased. Every day
was the same only we could go on
different hikes at night. On Sat
urday we had track meeting.

won that. I do not know the
score. We also had iee cream for
dessert for supper. Division No.
1 got double dessert for beating
the staff members in a game of
Sunday morning we had Sun
day school in the woods. Some of
the order boys that were higher
