One of the things that aged them was troop 402 from Dayton Ohio. The year was 1937, and 13 of mus met in the Church social room at 4 . Every tuesday. You have never Selt a such a Bunch of losers. Is e scorched the Cocoa on our Wiener roast. We ate the Gumdrop table favors before our mothers arrived at the Mother daughter dinner. We saluted funny during the pledge because we had to Ink the words on the Palm of our hand to remember them. And we nearly Burnt Down a Forest because we made our fire in the hollowed out Bottom of a tree. I personally contributed my bit by holding up a class of 13 Tenderfoot from getting their badge for two years because i could not tie a sheep Shank knot. I have never understood Why girl scouts had to tie knots. Few of us went into the merchant marines and As it turned out. Most of us wore buckle shoes because we could t make bows. I worked on those Lousy knots Day and night. First. I mastered the bowline which i was delighted to find was used to make a Halter for horses. 11 did t see my first horse until i was 37.1 next. I mastered the reef knot which i used a lot making slings for Peoples broken arms. Then the Clove hitch which we All know is invaluable in puberty came and went and while my friends were discovering boys and making marriage plans i was sitting in the Church social room doing the half hitch the Sheet end. And the overhang Loop knots until i thought i would faint. Then i came to the sheep Shank. It nearly destroyed me. I would t have sweated it but it was used to shorten a Guy rope on a tent or marquee and heaven knows i needed that to get through life. My perseverance paid off one Day in Early Spring. The rope just seemed to move of its own free will and troop 402 graduated the oldest group of tender feet Ever to be recorded. The mystery of Why girl scouts had to spend so much time t ing ropes was finally revealed to me in a copy of the original girl scout handbook which has just been reissued during this birthday year. On Page 42 is a Section of How to secure a burglar with fight inches of Cord. A you make a Slipknot at each end of your Cord. Then you tie the burglars hands behind him by passing each Loop Over his fingers. Place his face downwards and Bend his Knees. Pass both feet under the string and he will be unable to get lets see. For a Slipknot you push end a through the Loop toward b and. I wonder if a horses Halter could detain him until the police came.
