All of this talk about WEBELOS stirred up some very old memories for me. I received my AOL in 1948 In Tucson, AZ, Catalina Council.
It seems to me that we were told at the time that we as Cubs did not pronounce the S in WEBELOS because we were not yet Scouts. Once we became 12 years old, (yes 12, not 11) and crossed over to Boy Scouting we would pronounce the S.
OK, OK yes, I'm a fossil, but the memory is pretty good. Now , if I could only find my glasses...
