  • From SCOUTING, March 1921 Annual Meeting issue

    A declaration on the front page of the magazine/paper. Perhaps this is an area to which we "SHOULD" revisit as an organization.

    "Volunteer Workers"

    WHEREAS, the Boy Scouts of America recognizes that its faithful volunteer workers, both in the national and local fields, are the strength and backbone of the Movement, and

    WHEREAS, we desire at this time to express our loyal appreciation and heartfelt thanks for the splendid service of our volunteer workers.

    WE, the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America, in the Eleventh Annual Meeting assembled,
    hereby resolve that such an expression of thanks and appreciation be hereby recorded as a part of the proceedings of the meeting and be published in the next issue of SCOUTING.

    "Don't let it became a salaried organization: keep it a voluntary movement of patriotic service. Lord Robert Baden-Powell in his last message to the vounteer leaders.

      From another portion of the Magazine; a segment of West's report.

      "It must be ever borne in mind that the basis of strength and power of the Boy Scout Movement will not be measured alone by the number of Scouts and Scout officials, the record of activity of the National Council, or the number Local Councils organized; these are but a means to an end. The value of the Scout Movement will be judged by the individual Boy Scout__ his conduct, appear- ance, and the way he puts into practice the Scout Oath and Law, and reveals that he is actually prepared to do things worthwhile because of the program of activities of the Boy Scouts of America."

      How might Mr. West rate our current organization?
