OK -- Let's get this real straight this time -- the word Webelos is
made up from the following:
1. WE = we will
2. BE = be
3. L = Loyal
4. S = scouts
Now -- if you drop the "s" you have: We will be loyal ----
That should help you remember -- of course it is explained in all the books.
While we are at it --- the word is:
A KAY la -- that too is in the books -- NOT A KEY la.

There is a medical form on the back of EVERY APPLICATION for a boy, and it is re
quired to be completed and surprisingly --- it is on the back of the "unit copy
" of the application! Amazing. We have been teching for at least the last 22
years I know personally about - that the SM and all adult leaders HAVE the res
ponsibility of the health and safety of every boy in their charge; that they MU
ST know about things like reactions to bee stings, etc.; if the boy is on medic
ation; and it follows --- all medical problems.
I find it interesting that you all decided to follow the rules. They are not ev
en new rules.
