BOYS AND THE BOY SCOUTS
(Continued from last Sunday)
Memorial Day In Franc.
Memorial Day in 1919 possessed
a unique significance. The fuU
meaning of the sacrifices made in
years gone by has been made clearer
now la the light of the sacrifices of
blood and treasure in the war just
The spiritual victory won In 1776
has never appeared so plainly as
now when our boys have won this
victory over the German autocrat.
Memorial Day was observed In
France, where lie the bodies of many
thousand American soldiers who
wore the khaki uniform whose very
color means the blending of the Blue
and the Gray. The address was de
livered by the president of the Unit
And after the service the president
of the United States personally plac
ed a wreath in memory of these
brave men who on a foreign field
had paid "the last full measure ot
devotion" to maintain the honor of
The president placed that wreath
in the name of the Boy Scouts of
It was an act of the forward look,
a deed of the dawning, a memory

The Men of Tomorrow.
These boys, of the generation from
which all scouts enlist, are the men
They are the ones on whom the
burdens will rest very soon.
"How time files'." How often do
do you say that?
Well, this is what it. means In the
terms of boys. All that America Is
to be. the sacred heritage wrought
in blood and tears, the future of de
mocracy, will be in their hands al
most before we know it.. That Is
why th Boy Scout movement as
sumes its present Importance to all
American citizens of today.
Tho Scout Motto.
The motto of the scout is "Tte
Prepared." This has always been
bis motto. Over a decade ago the
Boy Scont first took up as his mot
to: "Be Prepared."
It is not phrased In the thought
of military preparedness. It is our
hope that these boys, or their chil
dren, may never be called on to take
up arms and march to the battle
field for the final arbitrament of any
great moral issue. But if that time
should come for these whose boy
hood's training now lies with ns.
none could ever do it more bravely
than those who have been trained to
obedience and loyalty as scouts.
Hoping, however, that their ways
may be the ways of brotherhood and
all their paths be peace, their motto
possesses even more significance.
"Be Prepared." For the chosen
task of . life whether it be in pro
fessional. Industrial, political, or re
ligious lines, the boy trained to hon
estly and patiently prepare himself
for prospective duties will be more
likely to succed than the boy who
happens to connect with some Job.
"Be Prepared." For civic duties

who has been "Prepared" by study
of community life will bo much mor3
likely to provide a sane solution than
the boy who takes those things Tor
granted like the generation that pre
Memorial htaiul Tent.
America in all her thousands of
communities has been and still is
concerned as to what form her me
morial shall take tn honor of the
boys who went forth to foreign fields
to prove once more the things for
which the Stars and Stripes forever
stand and the spirit behind those
things because of which the Ameri
can flag has never known defeat.
It is not by any means Inappro
priate that each community shall
build for its own some mighty mon
ument, some triumphal arch, some
public edifice that shall perpetuate
in concrete form the courage and
heroism, the valor and chivalry, the
personal and national unselfishness
of the immortal deeds.
But when these men marched In
Flanders and in France the blew a
new note on their war bueles. It
has rung around the world as did
the mesxage of old Liberty BelJ In
'76. It has been given these words
as its interpretation:
It must be the slogan of American
manhood. It has Its meaning now
that the war is over as it had upon
the field of strife.- It must-be real
ized in our manhood of tomorrow.
The Torch (Mm Flanders' Field.
This is the spiritual monument of
an ever-progressive American man
hood which over and beyond all ma
terial memorials American commun

The spiritual torch from Flanders
field came to our hands. We ot to
day have held it aloft to light the
nations on their way. But our hands
cannot always hold it. Tomorrow
shall our eyes prow dim, our ears
be dull. Tomorrow, in spite of all
our will to do. our hand will shake
with age and our feet he palsied on
the paths of progress. What then?
Into the hands of these boys whose
training now lies with ns must to
that torch. The wisdom of Ameri
can freemen will Justify itself if we
adopt the motto of the scouts: "Be
