I wouldn't call myself an expert, but looooonnnng ago, when I was a Cub,
(1960 or so) WeBeLoS was exactly what you described, an acronym for the
ladder leading to Scouts. I think it must have been part of what you had
to memorize for the Bobcat pin... (Bobcat wasn't a badge back then) just
as you have to know what the current meaning is to get the Bobcat badge.
