All Kind ot Subjects.
Ia the preceding articles which
have run la The Daily Statesman we
hare told you a little about the or
ganization called the "Boy Scouts of
America." We have also had some
thing to say aboat the fact that scout
ing appeals to and inspires all kinds
of boys. We presented our facts by
means or samples of different kinds
of boys and showed how the life of
the scout .would reach them, over
come their difficulties, provide a
means of proper expression, - train
them to kindness and usefulness.
Now we want to talk a. bit abont the
many subjects that are presented to
the scout and how they are made t
make the appeal we have claimed for
How Much it Costs the Boy.
Dnt somebody was asking the oth
er day how much it costs a boy to be
a scout, and we would like to answer
that very important question be for

been reading these articles ami he
was thoroughly Interested because he
thad one of .those boys we ealked
about. But he said: "I don't know
if we can afford it. How much does
it cost the boy? Of course, we'll
"have to put up the money for his
This man was an interested father.
He took the trouble to Investigate.
He just couldn't wait until the end
of these articles to find out whether
this Boy Scout movement was within
reach of his pocketbook.
He made a most natural error in
thinking that perhaps the scout
movement was run for profit. But
it isn't. It is an Investment of the
citizens of a community almost the
same as the public school. It is sup
ported by the voluntary subscriptions
of public spirited citizens who be
lieve la investing in boys.
Well, it costs the boy 25 cents a

That Is the annual registration
fee. The only required sum ia this

can't wear it at first anyhow. And

And then there is something else.

taught In the period preceding his

should himself earn the money to
buy IL Some troops vote an asses-

use in the troop. But that' is option

The father. or mother mtgnt put
up the 3S cents for a scout hand
book. There Is nothing else to be
put up. The boy pays his own way.
Kow for Those Subjects. .
There are so many things that are
taught the Boy Scout that the cam
paign would be all over before we
should have finished if we tried to
tell the mall. So we will have to do
the same as we did with the kinds of
boys, just present a few samples.
But yoircan find the rest If you want
to procure one of those handbooks
at the local scout's headquarters here
Ia Woods or City Streets.
The scout is taught not to get lost
in either. In the open he learns to
tell north from south, east or west
by means of signs plainer than tboso
at our city street corners. In the
city he must become so familiar with
It that he can guide strangers, lie
is taught where the fire alarm boxes
are. where the nearest doctor Uvea
from many different points, .where
the hospitals are and the quickest
way to reach them. He knows the
names of his city officisls and what
their duties are. What do you think
of the civic Importance of that In the
days to come?
In the open the scout learns to
tie a knot that will hold. He is
taught to climb a tree that would
stump folks who didn't know how.
He. can swim a river, pitch a tent,
mend a tear la his trousers. He can
tell poisonous plants. He knows the
stars by name and can find bis way
by them. He' learns of animals and
fish and the habits and. habitat of
Ills Trained Eye.
A scout walks through the woods
with silent tread. No dry twigs snap
under his feet. When he has learned
that he makes less clatter at home.
When he gets his feet under control
the furniture is not marred and ho
doesn't bring in so much dirt.
The scout seesc many things In the
woods that others might easily pass
without observing. He has been
taught the tracks of the forest. He
knows the signs that reveal the na
ture and habits of the creatures that
made them. He learns to see much
and be but little seen.
Like the old frontiersman, he does
not shout his wisdom from the house
tops. He learns the quiet that comes
from knowledge. He is taught to
speak softly and to answer questions
modestly. He recognizes a braggart,
but does not challenge him. simply
smiling as" the loose-wagging tongue
reveals the other's ignorance.-. He is
never looking for trouble, but neither
does he fear it. for his motto has con
stantly been that of the scout: "Be
The Honor of the Scout.
. A scout holds hos honor to be his
most sacred possession.
True, once In a great while, a boy
goes back onhis oath. But here is
an Interesting bit of actual fact that
occurred about one such that did
land In a juvenile court. His face
wassaet and hard. He had steeled
himself not to give an inch. The
judge talked with him and his father,
then of his mother. Yet be did not
yield. Then he found that the boy
had once been a scout. That wise
judge began to talk about the Scout
oath and law. The boy shuddered
minute he started on the road back.
