Subject: Distance Computers
My troop has some sheets of "Distance Computers." These are xeroxed sheets
of paper with two parts to be cut out and put together with a prong
fastener which you use to convert feet and meters to paces and vice versa.
The instruction sheet "How To Use the Distance Computer" has the page
number 574 at the bottom. Where did this come from? The copies I have are
terrible. Is this on the net somewhere? What book can I find this in?
The book seems to be about 7" x 10" in size. I would go into CorelDraw and
make these; however, the lines are not all spaced alike. Please help.
The Distance computers is found on the last page of Boy Scout Handbook
Edition 9. It was meant as a tear out and Xerox Page. I have this on my
computer as an image in PDF,tif,pcx,bmp form. When I can figure out how to
post an image file to my web page on compuserve it will be on the internet.
In the meantime contact me privately and I'll try to email it as an
Anyone out there with an old Boy Scout Handbook Edition 7 I would be
willing to make a deal. I was in Scouts with this book and alas I can not
locate it in my parents house.
