LADS LIKE THE TRAINING
By A. R. GROH.
Boys take to the Boy Scout idea
like ducks to water. They like to
be scouts; it's good for them to be
scouts and it is good for others that
they are scouts, for a Boy Scout
"must do at least one good turn to
somebody every day."
It is delightful to see their pride
and enthusiasm, in this work. I
watched a couple of troops under
Scout Master Morley Young, which
were bivouacked in their tent on the
third floor of the Brandeis stores.
Clad in khaki siuts, with woodsmen's
axes, knives, ropes hanging from their
belts, they were ready for any emer
gency. Respond to Signals.
Look! A scout is "wig-wagging" a
signal. (Imagine him, please, on some
distant hill, instead of only ten feet
away). His signal is spelled out,
"H-e-l-p m-a-n w-i-t-h b-r-o-k-e-n
1-e-g." Four other scouts rush to his
assistance. They make a stretcher
with two long, sticks stuck through
the arms of their coats. They remove
the 'Victim's" shoes to help "restore
circulation." Then he is quickly
loaded on the improvised stretcher
and carried to camp.
Page Christie demonstrated in maj
terful manner the application of a
head bandage, explaining sagely about
fractures and contusions, as he
wound the bandage round and round
the head of another boy. His father
couldn't have done it better. Another
scout demonstrated the "handker
Fire Without Matches.
Now. our scouts, in the midst of an
imaginary forest, far from civiliza
tion, must prepare tood, tor tney are
famished by their exertions and
forced marches. Apparently their
matches have been ruined in swim
ming nvers and wading through
marshes. But this does not dismay
a boy scout A dry piece of wood, a
pointed stick and a bow are quickly
contrived and then they produce fire
by friction, in the manner of primitive
man. The boys actually produced
tne hre, too.
Tust at this Doint in the demonstra.
tion help arrived in the person of
Advertising Manager Kothen of the
Brandeis stores, who announced that
lunch was ready in the Green Room.
And our intrepid band of warriors
marched away to an eminently "civil
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
of. this week a campaign will be made
to raise $15,000 for the scout move
ment in Omaha. "Three thousand
boys for $15,000. Will you invest?"
asks the committee.
Percentage of It
There are several Boy Scout troops
here now, but there will be a lot of
new troops of the khaki-clad, healthy,
full-of-life kind, helpful, useful lads.
There will be a scout council and a
local headquarters. There will be a
scout executive to train the scout
masters. A court of honor will be
established in Omaha, full records
will be kept and the whole movement
will be organized thoroughly.
The scout law consists of twelve
articles, which command the boys to
be trustworthy, loyal, ' helpful, friend
ly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful,
thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. A
scout "must not take pay for being
helpful or courteous. He may work
for pay, but must not receive tips for
courtesies or good turns."
The Boy Scouts are organized in
twenty-seven different countries.
There are local councils in as many
cities of this country. Over 6,000
scout masters are registered, having
charge of over 300,000 boys in the
United States. In Germany the boys
have taken to the movement in such
numbers that the Prussian and Ba
varian authorities have given them
Eight boys constitute a "patrol,"
one of them being chosen leader.
Three "patrols" make a "troop," and
a scout master, generally a young
man, leads the troop.
Woodrow Wilson is honorary pres
ident of the Boy Scouts of America,
ex-Presidents Taft and Roosevelt are
honorary vice presidents.
Many of the ministers will mention
the Omaha campaign today in their
You know, boys, when you first
join the scouts, you are a "tender-
toot. 1 hen you learn things. You
learn how to make a (ire without
matches; how to swim at least fifty
yards; how to signal, track, give first
aid; how to use a knife, hatchet and
axe; how to cook in the open without
utensils; how to make maps and
sketch, judge distance, height, num
ber, size, weight. You learn the six
teen points ot the compass, so you
can't get lost even in a big forest
When you have become proficient in
such things you are "first class scout."
Take Step to "Stop
The War" Campaign
New York, Nov. 26. Further steps
in a national "stop the war" cam
paign designed to crystalize sentiment
so that any peace move which may
be made by President Wilson will re
ceive the support of the nation, were
taken here today by the organization
of the New York branch of the

SIEGE IS STILL CONTINUING
El Paso, Tex., Nov. 26. High army
officers here tonight declared their
belief that indications were that the
tide of battle at Chihuahua City was
turning in favor of Villa and his
forces after he had been defeated and.
driven off repeatedly during the past
The fact that the telegraph line is
cut is considered significant by these
army officers, who are closely watch
ing developments in Mexico. This,
they say, indicates Villa's force is
north of the capital and far removed
from the artillery on Santa Rosa
hill, and other eminences. The side

the civil and military authorities that
General Trevino, Carranza command

at the close of the three days' siege
by Villa and his bandits.
Aside from this information the

and to report them over the military

suspension ot wire communication
with Chihuahua City is considered by
Carranza military authorities to in

to the north and northeast of the
city and is attacking from that side

of fire which the Carranza artillery
has been pouring into the ranks of
Americans familiar with the topog

able to make his way into the city

Becomes General Attack.
Before the telegraph line was cut
brief reports of the third days' bat
tle for possession of Chihuahua City
received here, told of the preliminary
skirmishing just before dawn, which
developed into a general attack at
4 JO o'clock.
The battle opened with the rifle
flashes of the artillery men in the
first line trenches. The machine guns,
mounted on elevations protecting the
main roads to the city took up the
refrain soon after daybreak and the
heavy artillery on Santa Rosa hill
added its rumblings to the symphony
at sunrise. The assault became a gen
eral one at 7 o'clock with the bandits
attacking from all sides, according to
the dispatches received here. A re
pulse of Villa was reported soon after
9 o'clock after which nothing of the
battle was received until the tele
graph line was cut.
Deny Rumor Is True.
When informed of a rumor m El
Pasom that Chihuahua Cirv had fallen
before Villa's attacks, Andres Garcia,
inspector general ot consulates, said:
"There has been absolutely nothing
received here to indicate such an
event and we control the only avail
able source of information. From our
knowledge of the defenses of Chihua
hua City and of General Trevino's re
sources in men and arms, we do not
feel any uneasiness."

Queretaro, Mex., Nov. 26. High
Mexican officials who are here to at
tend the constitutionalist convention
are still awaiting the full text of the
border control protocol signed in At
lantic City last week and the full text
of Secretary Lansing's statement de
fining in part the policy of the United
States government toward Mexico be
fore they will make any comment on
There is seemingly satisfaction that
an arrangement has been reached for
the withdrawal of the American
troops from Mexico and for the con
trol of the border, but this is replaced
bv the feeling that Secretary Lans
ing's statement will require deep con
sideration. The terms of the protocol
mentioning a delay of forty days fot
the withdrawal of the tf6opi, if condi
tions permit ot sucn action, is au
versely commented on. '
It is known that certain leaders
have vigorously opposed any agree
ment that would permit the pursuit
into Mexico of bandits by the Ameri
can troops, as outlined by Secretary
Lansing, it being stated that such pur
suit can only be regarded in the light
of an invasion. Other influential men,
however, have made the declaration
that the signing of the protocol is the
beginning of an understanding that
will wipe out cause for disagreement
between the two Countries.
Ships Are Scarce!
Yacht of the Spanish
King Bears Freight
New York, Nov. 26. The extraor
dinary demand of commerce for ocean
tonnage which has already called in to
merchant service vessels of war and
army transports and has virtually
swept the world's shipyards bare of
everything that will float and carry
cargo, has now laid toll on the
erstwhile private yacht of a king.
Today there arrived here the Span
ish steamship Alfonso XIII, formerly
the royal yacht of the present king
of Spam. It once was the North Ger
man Lloyd steamer Havel and was
bought by Spain during the Spanish
American war. The furnishings and
luxurious apartments of the ship
pleasing the eye of King Alfonso
XIII, he commandeered it on his ac
cession as the private yacht of' the
royal family and it was used on
numerous excursions of state.
Now operated by the Spanish
Transatlantic company for mer
chant and passenger service the Al
fonso XIII furnishings have not been
disturbed. The regal suite is locked
up, but is still ready for use by the
king or his family if required. This
is the first trip of the Alfonso XIII to
an American port.
