THE PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA i mutual lilt insurance company C. "Stan" VERLINDEN 414 21 St. South Phena 327-3550 Scoutin By CA. Weekes Be Prepared to read this. A phone call to former Grizzly commissioner Kurt Seel brought a happy response. He is busy with leadership courses and winter camping. We are back from the Foothills Hospital at Calgary where we again pitched our camp on the fourth floor. In the ward was a genial former scouter, Bill Black of Longview. Baden-Powell's Scout Oath: "On my honor I promise . that I will do my best To do my duty to God and the King; To help other people at all times; To obey the Scout Law." Baden-Powell's Scout Law consisted of nine points: A Scout is loyal to the King, and to his officers, and to his parents, his country, and his employers. A Scout's duty is to be useful and to help others. A Scout is a friend to all and a brother to every other Scout. A Scout is courteous. A Scout is a friend to animals. A Scout obeys orders of his parents, patrol leader, or Scoutmaster without question. A Scout smiles and whistles under all circumstances. A Scout is thrifty. In metropolitan Cowley we have our ears to the ground, especially yesterday, our founder's birthday. We hear of a group of Wolf Cubs who are studying outdoor safety and wild life with plenty of emphasis on antipollution and conservation. At .Fort Macleod whom should we meet but Scouter Lew Blair and over a cup of coffee we heard of real action. Scouter H. Beazer of Fort Macleod's 2nd Troop has been giving his boys a chance to be known as River Rats by summer and Igloo Boys by winter. Everyone knows the 1st Troop is in there pitching in the tremendous effort that Fort Macleod citizens are putting forth to make their centennial plans come up big and successful this year. Scouter Steve Burger's boys have offered their 100 per cent co-operation to the Citizens' Committee. Scouter Lew is proud of them all, as is Cub Scouter Phil Hodnett. The big Southern Alberta regional jamborette is coming up in early July. Better get your plans made for your display in Scoutcraft .and Scoiitarania at Camp Impee-sa. Scouter Charlie Evans and who knows who else will be there. Now then gang, remember the outdoor manners code: Ask permission before going on to private land. This is Scout Week. All Scouts are expected to be faithful in their religious duties. The importance of Scouting in a boy's spiritual growth has been recognized by most religious leaders and the major religious denominations have created special awards for First Class Scouts who do outstanding service within their faiths. The first of these awards was the Ad Altare Dei award established by the Roman Catholic Church'in 1981. We have the Ner Tamid award for Scouts of the Jewish faith and the Duty to God award for Scouts and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is the Sangha award for Scouts who are Buddhists and the Alpha Omega award for Scouts of the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church. We have the God and Country award for Scouts in the Episcopal Church. There are others. Treasure this part of Scouting. Sparwood has a two-way street it seems. Cub Kent Stucker transferred to A Pack from Calgary whereas Cubs Keven and Greg Stuck-ert transferred to Calgary. Dr. F. I. Lundgren gave the pack a fine talk on nutrition and posture.

Mr. Boon, director of preventive social services department of the Barons-E u r e k a NON DRINKERS deserve to pay less for fire insurance They do at Abstainers'. Because our experience has shown that abstainers have fewer accidents, fewer home fires. That's why we can insure for less.

Few mishaps hi January TABER (HNS) -A single motor vehicle accident involving more than $200 in property damage and three minor incidents accounted for the $672 total property loss during January. The previous record shows a total of three accidents in April, 1971, for a total loss of $400. The 32 convictions under the Highway Traffic Act included many speeding offences. There were two "stunting" charges. One cost the youthful driver a fine of $100 for careless driving. In January, 17 persons were convicted on liquor charges. An additional 11 persons were housed in the cells while intoxicated and released when capable of self control. Police reported 11 convictions under the Criminal Code. Charges of theft of goods and a break, entry and theft case brought three local juveniles into police custody. ing and maintenance of the school buildings was higher than anticipated.
