Another pilot escaped and people fled in all directions, they add. They also say that police brought one of the guer- rillas who was covered in dirt and the airfield in a police car and long lines of police vehicles had begun streaming away from the air- port as the drama there ended. Handbook revised for Boy Scouts By JULES I.OH WASHINGTON (AP) For the first time in its 61-year his tory, the official handbook of the Boy Scouts of America has been completely revised. The new version reflects an America short on wilderness if not on innocence. The old post- ers that said scouting is fun still hold true. As the new handbook promises in the style that characterizes its tone: "Man, Scouting is a At first glance inside (he new book, however, it would seem that Hide girls of today arc go- ing to have to fend for them- selves when mad dogs lurk and old ladies will have to get across the street as best they can. Gone are both those in- spirational line drawings of the original handbook. The new handbook's un- mineed pi-escription for scout- like bel-wior: "Don't be a wise guy or a loudmouth." The revised handbook, wh'ch appeared Sept. 1, faces up lo changes that bave swept the U.S. in the last half century. It still teaches, for example, how to deal with and a ratbite. It also includes an eight-page section on drug abuse. Sections on tracking, ing, starting fires with flint and steel, frostbite, fits, con stipation, edible plants, heat ex haustion and sunstroke all have disappeared from the manual. HIKE SCENE CHANGES That doesn't mean that hik ing and camping have gone the way of the Scout shoe tha also appeared in the origina edition. On the contrary, hiking ha been expanded to include hikes in the city: One illustration ti tied "Watch for landmarks' shows a lamppost at the come f 112th and Main. Interesting ildlife to identify along the ray: Starlings, cockroaches, .ouse mice and pigeons. As for outdoor cooking, the 911 handbook conceded that 'amaleur biscuits are not con- lucive to good digestion or hap- piness" but it did include direc- ions on how to make pancakes. ?o docs the new book: "Mix latter according lo instructions an the ready-mixed package." Hygiene has changed as well, mri not necessarily to the Might of a boy. Bathing, for n.stance, now is recommended daily instead of twice a week. On the other hand, "Keep your ingernails neatly trimmed and clean" suffices for what earlier vas a 200-word essay including he observation: "Biting the nails is a filthy practice and mutilates the fingers dread- fully." What it a city hiker gets lost? Does he break out his Scout compass? Signal with his Scout whistle? Neither. He looks for a cop. Anil what it he has lo Yes, that is covered too: "Carry an emergency dime with you at all times." MULTICULTURAL PROGRAM MONTREAL (CP) The Na- tional Film Board of Canada, in co-operation with the depart- ment of the secretary of stale, will impleir.V it a rmillicuHural program during the next four years aimed at acquainting Canada's ethnic groups with NFB movie1} in their own lan- guage. The board, in addition to English and French produc- tions, makes versions of many of its prints in more than 40 languages.
