Scouting By CA. Weekes Here we are well along into June and despite poets, June days are not so rare with chilly winds making us put our shirts back on after tak- ing them off on hot sunny in- tervals in the garden. How are your gardens and window boxes fellows? Remember that Gardener's Badge and whether you pre- fer vegetables or flowers makes little difference. Why not try a few tomatoes or cucumbers in warm sunny areas? Fertilizer and plastic tents will help to produce that eight pounds to the plant they grow outdoors at Brooks. Water well if your district is short on rain. By the way, if the longer, more spindly flowers you set out are wind-whipped just use those 48-ounce fruit juice tins open at both ends to put over the plants. And, speaking of rhubarb, take a jar of chopped, well sugared rhubarb out with you on that weekend or overnight camp. Add water in a sauce pan and a small pinch of salt. Eat with bread and butter or cookies. Tasty? You bet! The Jamborette is shaping up for July 2-7 and Scout Ex- ecutive Bob Jenkins has been hauling in more new canoes. Our old friend Ray Babbs has been settling in again at Camp Impccsa so all speaks well for summer camping of all sorts. Want a job as a Service Scout? Write to the Camping D e p a r tracnt, Boy Scouts, South Alberta Region, 217 12th St. A South, Leth- bridge. Be sure to give your name, age, address phone number, how far >ou are along in Scouting, and give two references from adults who know you. You should do this immediately stating what weeks you are avail- able. The Jamborette will have no less than 14 programs. Camp chief will be Don White; deputy camp chief vrill be Dr. Scott Angus who will be in charge of sub- camps and all camping. Scouter Colin Oddie is in charge of programs while Scouter Leo Toone will be in charge of administration which includes a canteen. There is a great need for adults as service Get a registration form and reg- ister. Scouts will be there from Saskatchewan and B.C. and all over Alberta. Each group should make every Scout, Adventurer and Leader is registered whether going to camp, Jam- borette, or travelling as members of the move- ment. This makes you sure of insurance protection. Greetings and a happy sa- lute go to Scouter Tom Hart who is our new provincial commissioner. Our provincial president is Rev. Jack Purdic. Our warmest south Alber- ta regional greetings go to National Executive John L. (Mac) MacGrCgor. He is re- cuperating from a heart at- tack in an Ottawa hospital. A happy and speedy re- covery, Mac! We note that Nanton Scouts and Cubs took advant- age of the open house held in the RCMP office. We only hope many others in other towns did the same. We know Stavely boys and leaders did so. A big item was the Por- cupine Hills Barbecue at Wil- low Creek Park. Someone once wrote about "us amphibious Canadians" and it looks as if the TJHey Scouts qualify. They built their own boats and cruised down river through rapids and all to the Medicine Hat bridge. What they saw and did will be a permanent me- mory to boys and leaders. Good going, John Desjardins, Ron Dahl and Joe Simo and crew! Also qualifying are the boys and leaders of the Sec- ond Foremost Troop on the Victoria Day weekend. They travelled some 60 miles from Macleod Meadows to Canal Flats on the Kootenay River. Two 40-foot rafts ac- commodated the 48 boys with a 20-foot raft for supplies. Congratulations go to Lead- >TS Gordon Povrelscn, Harian Ca'ioon, Ralph Briltner and fellow voyageurs! From Kilmarnock, Ayr- shire in Scotland a letter ar- rived the other day from Lord Rowallon. We had writ- ten him after bearing that he was in failing health. By all accounts he is busy and ac- e, far indeed from being an invalid. He was Chief Scout of the Commonwealth when Mrs. Weekcs and myself first met him in Edmonton back in 1346. Later we met him at the 8th World Jamboree at Nia- gara-on-the-Lake in 1955. Sir Ian Boitcn at Stirling gave me his address and now nothing will do but that we must visit him on our next trip to Scotland. That fel- lows, is something that we will do. This week sees me in dear old Impeesa. This time we will be assisting in a school ecological camp. Just a little pre-amble to the Jamborctte. Good hunting, all!
