Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 22, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LETHBRIIXSE DAILY HKRALI) MONDAY, MARCH 22, J92C For Boy Scouts Progressive Calganans Appre cinte Value of Service Organi- {I zation Whose .Members Are the Youths of Today, But the Canada of Tomorrow Limited Finances of Scouts Have Hampered Their and a Province- Wide Appeal for Funds Is Being Made. THE campaign for funds for the maintenance and ex- tension of the Boy Scouts' movement, as inaugurated by the Kiwanis Club of Calgary, is but following along the lines pursued in various centres in the United States where between one and two million dollars have been raised. This onty tends to prove that when the cducatiue value derived from the Boy Association is brought home to par- ents, the supports forthcoming. The people of Alberta can not fail to realize that the Boy Scouts' Association have a mission that affects the welfare and happiness of the home> the upbuilding of its youth.

TJiis entails a considerable expenditure yearly, and ihis expense has been met partly by ihe grunt of ?ron? the provincial govern- ment, a donation irom Canadian council in Ottawa and :i feu- subscription a from men Inter- ested In the provincial side of ihn ivork. Since 151S the dona-Jon from ihb Canadian council in Ottawa has t-een suspended.

While its work has been commended i by. al! .classes of men, one of thd greatest tributes lo it has been through the continual demand of j public aiPl private i business men, and others for the' services of boys who arc and were seouu. Unless the necessary j financial support is forthcoming during the Klvmnls' drive, scout work In the province will suffer and organization of the movement, equal to that being done In ucher prov- inces, will be impossible in ".All clear" has sounded that th war is over and that relief of the strain of those strenuous days has come, but "all clear" othcr meaning; it means that "the way is open" to further successful effort for one's country.

Calgary District Commissioner of the Boy Scouts. Twenty-Four Brave Younn Lads and Their This Province Cheerfully Gave Their Lives On Field of Others W on Military Decorations and Many of Those Too Young to Serve Overseas Gained War Service Badges for Performance of Important and Onerous Duties at Home. D R. JAMES RUSSELL, principal of Teachers' Col- lege, of New York city, speaking of the Boy Scouts' Association and the benefits derived by the youth of a nation through its teachings, says: "It is the man in the boy that is emphasized, and the type of manhood ideal- ized is that which strives to stand for the right against the wrong, for truth against falsehood, to. help the weak, op- pressed, and to loyc and seek the best things of life." How many homes in Alberta have been bowed in sor- row during the past few years because the Boy Scout was true to these ideals, these teachings of the Boy Scout As- sociation? Too often do parents regard the Boy Scout movement as a movement intended for youngsters only a young boys' game, as it were. But the war accomplished much in that it has shown the Boy Scout to be true to his ideals, even though those ideals-carried him unto the field of battle where his life paid the sacrifice of defending'the weak and oppressed. Lt-Col. Doughty Tells of Their Many Good and Pa- -triotic Deeds Alberta's Proud Place. Alberta holds a in ;he empire's honor roll of those Boy Koo-dtg who fell on Flanders fields.

ScouUi and officers in uniform are not allowed to tafco part in meetings or J em oust vat Ions of a poHtlcal na- ture. There ia no military' meaning1 attached-to scouting; even the or- dinary drill employed 'by .no many boys' organizations being reduced to the lowest necessary limits. Peace scouting comprises the attributes of resourcefulness and self-relianco and the miny other.qualities which make scouts men among nieiu "f There is no intention of making thef youth' of the land Into soldiers. At the same time, under patriotism they arc taught that a citizen must "be prepared" to take lits fair share Among'his fellows In tha defence of .the homeland against in return for the safctv and freedom enjoyed by him as an inhabitant, und that he who shirks j anil leaves this duty-to othfers i; neither playing a plucky nor a fair imn.
