By DON PETERSON
One of Scouting’» biggest events,
its Court of Honor, came last Wednes­
day evening and was hardly noticed
by most of the parents of the boys
involved. Isn’t it strange that par­
ents can be so thoughtless that they
will not come out to these really big
events in the lives of their boys?
Scoutmaster Chai les Kelly has
given at least one night a week dur­
ing this past year to guide these boys
in their scouting work. Most of.the
time there has been at least one troop
committeeman from the Lions club,
the troop sponsoring organization,
present to assist the scoutmaster in
his w-ork.
They have given many
hours of their time to make the troop
a successful group of boys.
One
night from a parent on Court of
Honor night would prove very encour­
aging to these men. Bob Veness has
taken on the duties of assistant scout­
master and has proved popular with
the boys while he has been conduct­
ing work in signal work and some of
the working of electronics.
These men deserve a great big
handshake and vote of thanks fur
their devotion to the program of
Scouting.
Let’s see that they get
our thanks!
