•Quthori^ ad l^on
At a recent troop committee
meeting the 1953 budget was the
main topic of discussion.
After studying the 1952 budget
in which almost $800 was spent for
the administrative costs of a scout
troop averaging 25 members it
was suggested that the 1953 budget
be raised to $250 per quarter to
cover the costs of an average mem
bership of 51.
The possibility of organizing an
other troop and another cub pack
was discussed but did not meet
with much enthusiasm as it is felt
that one large troop is better than
two partly filled troops.
General Doan chairman of the
committee elaborated on some of
the plans for the coming meeting
of the Bell Cove District Council.
New type training aids and in
struction techniques and a film on
the National Scout Jamboree are
a few of the things in store for the
visiting district members from all
towns in the Killeen-Belton area.
Lt. Col. Harrell Reagan was ap
pointed chairman of the Board of
Review and was also designated a
member of the Scout Jamboree
Fort Hood has invited all scouts
of the nine county Heart O' Texas
Council to an outing April 10-12.
The program commences Friday
night April 10 and lasts through
Sunday April 12.
Firing demonstrations tank rides
and firing the carbine are just as
few of the activities awaiting the
Heart O' Texas scouts. General
Clarke and General Doan have
prepared a fine week-end program.
Complete details will appear in
this column in the near future.
