At the formal opening of this scientific exhibit, Charles F.

SUMMARY—Shows TROOP ~55—— ACHIEVED MUCH RECENTLY By EARL SHELDON Troop 25 Scoutmasterv From the affairs of grasshop- pers to the affairs of men, things seem to move in cycles, no doubt a Natural Law that can nevey’ be changed. We move ahead for a period, then seem to stand still or even drop back for a. like per- iod. , It very decidedly shows up in '1 the life of a. Boy Scout Troop over a number of years too, and the Scoutmaster is only a. small part of the “machine.” Take for in— stance ourmilfiroop-25. During the last year, but for the loyal and perfect attendance of a few boys ,the Troop would have lost its ,1 charter. But about November first it was ready to grow again, :and here is a brief summary of since its rebirth at that time: . It has increased its membership ', from eight to twenty-two (with TI only a few being transfers from other troops), and we expect a few more soon. Only one dropped .out during the period and that was not because of any trouble pertaining to Scouting. We sent .up two to graduate as Eagle Scouts. Also the mothers of Troop 25 organized on March 5 the first “Mothers' Club” to be formed in Tumwater, Olympia, or Shelton. We are informed through our lo- cal Council however, that some Olympia parents are “thinking of it." Their activities in no way conflict or interfere with those of the Troop, being mostly con- ;some of the things accomplisde in Scouting with a desire to ad- vance steadily by the entire Troop. One thought recently mentioned by one of the Mothers Club was the possibility of an orchestra .within the Troop, and this would :be entirely possible as far as musicians are concerned as we have either seven or eight boys who can play different instru- ments. But the boys are pretty busy. The future will tell (and MIGHT tell it in music). .

Each Patrol now has its own llittle camp site picked where they can work and play and camp out ,during their spare time. They [are near each other and about two [miles from the boys’ homes. Al- together, with all the activities the Council has planned for us, together with our own plans for the summer, it looks like, “Little Man, You’ll Have a Busy Day.” This scoutmaster was rather glad to see in Thursday’s Journal that transfers will henceforth be made more inconvenient. Al- though we receive fine boys, more is bound to be a strain on the feeling of good-fellowship and co- operative spirit between troops which is so necessary in Scouting, K THURSDAY-Commercial lea- qulied hospital treatment for in- l lwere not serious.
