A Big Hand
Have you ever given much thought
to the Scoutmaster that trains your
son in 'the Scouting methods? He
is a very busy man, but he finds
time to do his share In making
this world a better place to live,
by training better men tor the fu
ture. He is a man who loves to
work and play with boys, a man
that believes in the Ideals of Scout
ing. He knows that Scouting will
help make your son a better 'citizen,
a man of strong character and a man
that is developed properly in body
and mind. He is a man who seldom
gets a word of thanks from the pa
rents of his Scouts or any other
citizen of the community, yet he
attends meetings every week to
train your son to be a better man.
Most people think that Scouting
for an adult is just a one night a
week job. That my friend is wrong;
there isn't a Scout leader in this
county that doesn't average three
nights a week working in some
way for the boys of his unit Any
man who gives this mucn time
should have a 'big hand shake from
