FAIRBANKS A SCOUTMASTER
When Chief Scout Executive James
E. West returned to New York from
his extensive western and north
western tour, the most Interesting
piece pf news he had for the boy scout
world, at least as far as the boys
were concerned, was the announce
ment that Douglas Fairbanks will be
come an official scoutmaster.
Mr. West with Wm. G. McAdoo, na
tional vice president of the Boy
Scouts of America, had an Interesting
visit with Mr. Fairbanks ln'Callfornla;
at which time Mr. Fairbanks consented
not only to take up active leadership
of a troop of his own, but to develop
a film of this troop, showing the recre
ational activities and character build
ing and citizenship training of the
Boy Scout program.
Douglas Fairbanks, "Movie" Star
(Right), who Becomes a Scoutmas
ter; an Eagle Scout (Left) of a Lot
Thomas Patton, the Los Angeles rep
resentative of Will Hays, wus also a
member of the party which called on
Fairbanks. Fairbanks has agreed to
give the boy scout film his fullest and
best efforts. He is delighted with the
prospect of serving the boyhood of the
nation as scoutmaster In "the greatest
boy movement In the world today." He
"I wish to pay my respects to Mr.
McAdoo and that wonderful bunch of
fellows, the Boy Scouts. Tell them I
am thrilled to denth with the prospect
of being a scoutmaster, and I am
sure when my little band Is humming
we shall make a noise that will circle
For five weeks Mr. West has been
touring scout centers of the Middle
West, West and Northwest. He Is en
thused with the healthy condition of
acoutlng In America today, but be
lieves there Is nothing more Important.

VICE PRESIDENT'S ADVICE
The friendship of former Vice Presi
dent Marshall for scouting Is of long
standing, dating back to the very be
ginning of the movement. Mr. Mar
shall as president of the senate signed
the congressional bill, Incorporating
the Boy Scouts of America, February
8th, 1910. The former vice president who
keeps In close and sympathetic touch
with scout affairs, recently In Indian
apolis, conferred the highest award of
rank which scouting offers, the Eagle
badge, on three boys at a Court of
Honor meeting.' "I sincerely hope that
when you grow to your majority you
will practice the same loyalty to your
country that you now show to your
scout leaders," he said In addressing
the scouts, "You have attained
high honor In scouting, but do not let
It make you 'chesty.' Just -think that
nature has made you a little more fitted
to qualify for this honor, and always
remember to lend a helping hand to
your less fortunate brother scouts, and
aid them In every possible way to at
tain this honor also."

BOY SCOUTS FIND LOST BABY
Boy scouts of Kenllworth, Utah, and

THE GREAT HEARTED
ONLY the great-hearted can be true
All along the shadowed ways of life
the great-hearted are constantly send
ing out sunlight and cheer, which hu
mans of inferior natures can never
know or beStow.
To do good, without having their mo
tives suspected. Is their grand inten
tion. They seek no praise.
They move about with the quiet of
summer breezes, leaving In their trail
the delicious scent of gardens and the
peace of tranquil skies.
In the happiness they give to others,
they find a gratification rich beyond
price. If but once In your Ufa you
should be fortunate enough to meet t
great-hearted man or woman, the re
membrance of It will linger In your
mind until the end of your days.
Great hearts often dwell In lowly
Sometimes they are found In frail
bodies, poorly clad, but there Is about
them a radiancy of spirit brighter than
a thousand stars and clear as the
beaming of the noonday sun.
Great hearts blow to flame the spark
that blazes with love; they espouse
Truth and Mercy ; they sing from morn
till night of kindness and good will,
when their days are lonely and their
tables are bare.
They are neither silent nor neglect
ful when the 111 and the discouraged
need succor or sympathy.
Meek or lowly, they are the minister
ing angels from heaven, carrying to the
sorrowing "good tidings of great Joy."
From Idle slumbers they call youth
and point the way to honor and fame;
from the valley of gloom they bid the
despondent to look up to the glorious
heavens ; from the mire of sin they lift
up the fallen, seeking no reward but
the Joy that Is theirs from doing good.
They sin as we all sin, but unlike
most of us. they are charitable towards
all mankind, prayerful, watchful, faith
When the chimes In the belfry chant
their evening hymns, no souls on earth
are more serenely peaceful than the
great-hearted ; when at the setting sun
of their life the streams of light grow
dim In the golden west, and the som
ber shadows fall all about them, no
souls on earth are happier than they,
or more eager to go.

Lincoln was self-taught. Instead of

a book that he might pursue the quest of
knowledge which was a supreme passion
with him throughout his life.
Lincoln Instinctively knew that knowl
edge was the key that unlocks the door
to lame ana lortune, or any success mat
man desires. He went directly after
knowledge to prepare himself so that
when his chance came he would be ready.
