True, the literature does not use the word assign, but how would you
interpret the following:
1. Boy Scout Requirements y2k, p. 22. From the paragraph "Pick a Subject."
Fourth sentence. Begin quote. "Your Scoutmaster will give you the name of a
person from a list of counselors." End quote.
2. The Scoutmaster Handbook, 1998 edition, p. 123, last sentence of left
hand column. Begin quote "The Scout obtains from his Scoutmaster a signed
merit badge application and the name of a qualified counselor for that merit
badge." End quote.
Both instances state the Scout receives a name from the Scoutmaster. Sounds
like the assignment of a counselor to me.
