Chest is the Boy Scouts of America.

our local campaign.
Scouting started back about 1910 by
the effort of one Lord Baden-Powell
of England. His first motive was to
better prepare his countrymen for na
tional defense following his experi
ences in the Boar war. He later
realized the terrific possibilities of
such a movement among the youth |
of his country and the movement then
spread to the United States.
Today there are Boy Scout Organi
zations all over the world which are
carrying on a program whicli has for
many years been recognized as an im
portant contribution to the building
of the youth of the world. Locally the

My dear Mr. Aldrich:
There are at least three good reasons ^\'hy everyone should ap
prove heartily the decision of the National War Fund to carry on
with an undinunished sense of responsibility to our own forces and
to our friends who suffered most in the long and bitter war.
One reason, and reason enough, is that all efforts, like yours, re
lated to bringing peace should go forward with full vigor.
Another reason is that our concern for the morale and well
being of our own forces nmst carry through to the hapfyy hour when
a proud America can take back to its hearts and homes the men and
women who have won the fight.
And there is a third reason, perhaps not so readily understood,
but which can scarcely be over-emphasized.
We have won the military fight, but are virtually just beginning
the fight on famine, pestilence and general distress. And I say to you,
with full knowledge of what UNRRA can do, and everything that can
be done by other instrumentalities fnuniced by public funds, that the
private agencies of the National War Fund have a special task to do
that is indispensable and unique.
What these agencies have done, and can do, is important out
of all proportion to the relatively small funds involved. If no other
way can the American people themselves express so clearly their in
telligent sympathy and active concern, and their determination that
justice and mercy shall prevail in this world, with the help of every
good man and woman, and with the blessing of God.
May I, therefore, wish success to the National War Fund, and
all its associated state and community war funds, in the plans you are
laying now for a united appeal to a united people.
Mr. Winthrop W. Aldrich, President
National War Fund
