The Boy Scout movement in South
ern Pines was organized by the Rev.
Samuel F Holden in 1914 or 1915. Mr.
Holden continued to be the scout
master until 1918 in which year he
was called away fiom tha city. The
leadership was then taken up by Mr.
Bickford who seems to have done
good work for the youth for some
two years, after which the work was
continued by Captain Thiers who with
Mr. Ruggles served until 1924.

They were observed going about the I been spending the winter months j

what it means for youth to grow up
with tco much leisure.
One of our citizens suggested to
another of us that something ought
to be done to add a little guidance,
and some zest, to their ongoing, Cnn-
srquently a picnic was arranged and
put on, very much to the pleasure of
the boys. Very soon another was ask
ed for. It was arranged with an ap
propriate hike. A third gathering
with hike and eats was arranged for
them. The number of the lads increas
ed and the suggestion was offered as
to why some thing shouldn’t be done
for them in the way of an organiza
It was remembered that, some
years ago, there was a flourishing
scout organization in town. Since
there is no organization for youth
with so many useful phases of use
ful information, character building,
and development in real Americanism
the idea pr:sented itself to organize
the boys into a scout troop. This was
for the younger boys 8 to 12 years of

Thursday evening the Firemen’s Or
ganization of Plnehurst held its an
nual banquet at the country club,
when special guests were wives and
sweethearts of the firemen; making
about sixty attending. Sherwood
Brockwell, State Fire Commissioner
of Raleigh, was present, entertaining
in his inimitable style with songs
storie.o and dances of the Southern
Negro. An added attraction was the
floor show from the Club Chalfonte.
The entertainment committee for tnis
delightful occasion was composed of
Frank McCaskill, Harold Kelly and
Travis Wicker.
The Ninth district Art Apprecia
tion contest will be held at Southern
Pines High School Auditorium on Ap
ril 24th at 10:00 a. m. Every school
is entitled to two contestants, one rep
resenting the high school.
A program is being prepared for
the contestants. All the schools In
this district are invited to take part
in this contest, and also the creative
16 years of age? The real scouts are
of the latter age. In order to make
a complete organization it seemed to
us that the older boys should be in

manifested as great enthusiasm for
the organization as did the younger
Since a very large part of the scout
work consists of technical elements
it was very necessary that the woods
be scoured for a competent scoutmas
ter. He was found, but because of the
pressure of business he could not,
through the winter season, devote the
time to the scouts they really need
The organization was held togeth
er, however, and that notwithstand
ing the many nights that were too
ccld and stormy to hold meetings.
Enough scouts presented themselves
to make up three patrols. Of the cubs
there was an equal number.
The organization could not be let
There was a scout camp, or club
house. It looked like an abandoned
orphan asylum. A large part of the
roof had been renewed; the balance
cried aloud for someone to put it into
shape. Scaffolding and trash littered
the yard as though some sort of a
black death had visited the place and
there were not enough folks left to
clean the place up. It is wonder the
town didn’t do it as a matter of com*
munity cleanliness and pride.
There is a great need here that
something be done for the on-coming
generation of our youth. Upon re

boys attending school whose ages
ranged from eight years to sixteen.
That list gives ninety-nine of them,
and for whom nothing was being done
in their leisure hours until the gen
tlemen at present somewhat identi
fied with the movement took it upon
themselves to endeavor to do some
thing to meet the demand. They are
the future leaders in our civic life;
they are the leaders of the life of
our churches. They are the future of
ficers and supporters of the institu
tions we regard as very necessary to
the perpetuation of an atmosphere in
which the democratic spirit may find
welcome and operate.
There is a complete patrol of
scouts. Another can very soon be
formed. There are two complete pa
trols of the cubs. Another will soon
be ready for formatk>n.
The gentlemen voluntarily present
ing the present leadership would like
to urge parents and other thought
ful citizens to kindly give their mor
al support to the work that it may
be lifted back to something like the
influence it had under the leadership
of Messrs. Backer and Pierce.
This should be said concerning the
scout work that there is nothing In
it of a foreign, or sectarian ,or «t11
bias of any sort. Its principles incul
cate the very finest principles of
American citizenship.
