Finally, on pages 77-79, are the requirements for the WEBELOS Badge
and the Tenderfoot requirements (and a nice illustration of the
then "Tenderfoot Eligibility Certificate".
In the 1948 Lion Cub Scout Book, on page 136-139 are the
requirements for the WEBELOS Badge.
In the 1958 version, the 146-159 pages explain the WEBELOS Award
and the Tenderfoot requirements and how to earn them.
