A Tribute To A Scoutmaster, And
Boy Scout Activities In Harper
On Tuesday evening I and my son had the priv-
ilege of attending the 5th annual Boy Scout Barbe-
cue, Parents' Night and Court of Honor at the Har-
per Community Park. The event commemorated
the organization of the Harper Boy Scout Troop
about five years ago with Dennis Parker os scout-
master. It was the occasion, also, of the awarding
of the first Eagle Badge to a Harper youth, the
awarding of several Star and Life Badges, a Sec-
ond Class Badge and awarding of numerous merit
badges to members of the Harper Troop.
During the past year or two it was also my priv-
ilege to be at Camp Tom Wooten, near Austin, on
Lake Austin, headquarters for the Capitol Area
Council, of which Harper is a member, and at Camp
El Rancho Cimo on the Blanco River between San
Marcos and Blanco, this spring. At these outings
the Harper Troop was well represented and I could
personally see that the troop had good leadership,
a good Scoutmaster, and adult committeemen who
w@re interested in the boys. My personal observa-
tions were to the effect that the Harper boys were
wall behoved and that they are a credit to the com-
It takes a lot of time for a man to devote to the
Boy Scout effort, especially if he has other things
which he could do during that time. A fine tribute,
therefore, was paid Scoutmaster Dennis Parker for
the outstanding work he has done on behalf of fur-
thering Boy Scout work in Harper during the past
five years. The tribute was paid by committeeman
Victor Marschall to Parker at the Tuesday night
ceremonies. This tribute is well deserved and the
Harper community does appreciate Mr. Parker's
Harper has always been known, far and wide,
for the fine cooperation its citizens put forth in pro-
moting any civic undertaking. The community
park, the lighted field, the Jine school and play-
grounds, the fire department and numerous other
projects have been civic affairs in which the people
here and surrounding areas "pitched in" to help
achieve. The same is also true of the fine Boy
Scout troop of which the community is proud.
There is no better, no finer activity in which q
fey can spend his time during his youth ... those,
days when he must form a background of exper-
ience ^rhich will have to carry him through life.
What Ee learns in Scouting is certainly the "best of
everything" and, if he can, as he should, he will
carry out the Scout oath,- the laws, the teachings
and experience which he has received during his
Boy Scout days.
It was good to see a Harper youth receive jihis
.Eagle Badge Tuesday evening. It is also good to
note' that other young boys of the community have
the ambition which young Malcolm Marschall
Strove ior and succeeded in attaining. Credit is
due not only to the young man for his sincere ef-
forts to attain this highest of Boy Scout ranks, but
also to his devoted parents, his Scoutmaster’ and
the adult leaders, as well as his fellow Scouts who,
no doubt, are happy to see that one of their num-
ber has earned this coveted rank,
A smile costs nothing, but gives much. It enrich-
es those who receive without making poorer those
who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory
of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or
mighty that he can get along without it, and none
is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters
good will in business and is the counter-sign of
friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the
discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature's
best antidote for trouble.
It cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to any one
until it is given away, Some people are too tired
to give a smile. Give them one of yours* as none
needs a smile so much as he who has no more to
give. KEEP SMILING!
LIVE FULLY TODAY
Live a full day today. Don't postpone the enjoy-
ment of the good things of life until some future
time. If your present conditions are not right,
change your thought. Think constructively—
thoughts of health, wisdom, happiness, power, use-
fulness, achievement—and in due course these will
be manifested in your daily -life.
To get the most out of life will depend largely on
what and how much you put into your life. Broad-
en your view. Look for the best. Aim high. Face
the facts. Today is the only day you have. Make
the most of it. —Grenville Kleiser in Health
____________ Culture, Aug. 1955.

Veterans Urged To
Veterans planning to start
school this fall under the Korean
GI Bill today were urged by J.
Norman Lodge, manager of the
VA Regional Office in San An-
tonio, to take action now in or-
der to avoid the last-minute rush
With some 600,000 veterans ex-
pected to be in training this fall,
VA Regional Offices will be op-
erating at top speed to process
their papers. By filing their ap-
plications now, veterans will
save themselves unnecessary de-
lays, Lodge said.
To help veterans get started
the right way, this check list
should be adhered to.
1. Since veterans are allowed
only one change of course, they
should give plenty of thought to
their goal and the training pro-
gram leading to the- goal.
2. Veterans not sure of their
training goal may repuest VA vo-
3. Veteranis should be certain
their course has been Gl-ap-
proved by the State in which the
school is located. VA Regional
Office in San Antonio, Texas,
and not Washington, D. C., can
4. The application should go to
VA as soon as possible. This will
enable VA to iron out any snags
before school starts.
5. Veterans with dependents
should have the necessary proof
of dependeny ready when VA re-
quests it. For a wife, this would
be a certified copy of ehe marri-
age certificate; for a child, a cer-
tified copy of the birth centifi-
6. Veterans should take along
enough money of their own to
tide them over the first two
months of training. It takes that
long, ordinarily, for a veteran’s
first monthly GI check to reach
him. The reason is that payments
are made only after each month
of training is completed, and not
Further, before VA may make
a payment, it must receive a cer-
tification signed by the veteran
and his school, stating that he has
been in class all month. The law
allows 20 days after receipt of
certifications to get checks in the
