This is false.
I'm fairly certain that BP's original Wolf Cub promise included the
phrase 'and to do a good turn to someone every day' at the end. The
Canadian Wolf Cub promise today still includes 'to do a good turn for
somebody every day'.
Perhaps the daily good turn is not a factor in BSA Cub Scouting today,
but it certainly is present in other countries' Cub programmes and I'm
sure it must've been in American Cub Scouting to start with.
