Each month on about the same day we recieve at my home copies of Boys
Life and Scounting magazine. If I am lucky I see Scouting again within a

says, and it takes him a day or two to digest all of the ideas in the
Perhaps "National" should look at putting out a magazine aimed more at
the teen aged Scout. I think it would be one step to let these boys know
that "scouting" is interested in them too... as this is a group we seem
to be having difficulty holding the attention of.

We live together, we act on, and react to, one another;
but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves.

they are crucified alone. A.H.
