CAMP AT GRAYSTONE
Boy Scout .Troop 5, of the First Bap
tist Church, went with F. R. Cas
per, their scoutmaster, on an overnight
hike, Friday, September IG, to Camp
Graystone, the Boy Scout reservation.
Mr. Casper is well known as a leader
;unong the hoys, and his troop is con
sidered one of the best in town.
“I’m proud of my boys,” says Mr.
I'asper, “and although the work for
the year has not been announcer, I ex
pect to do great things. I love scout
ing and think there is nothing like it.
Loyalty and co-operation are large
factors in the success of a troop.”
The Boy Scouts have almost com-
]>leted a large cabin at Graystone. They
have been working on it for about three
years. The balcony is large enough for
approximately forty-eight boys, and the
large room is for games and other ac
tivities. The cabin actually cost only
about $G00, but much work. The boys
are very proud of it.
