Let's not allow this to become perfunctory

Good Turn is to inculcate habits of courtesy,
kindness, helpfulness, self-forgetfulness, serv-

Why Shouldn't Your Troop
THE CUT at the left shows in fairly
clear detail, a good working model of a
lean-to, put up by Troop 5, Akron,
Ohio (who have had the same Scoutmaster,
H. A. Shuman, for seven consecutive years).
This is excellent activity for week-end hikes
at any time of the year, but particularly
now. Permission from owners to cut and
use material must always be obtained.
The best plan is to try to gather up enough
fallen timber. Note that the walls and roof
are thickly lined with dead leaves, held in
place by slender saplings which are evi-
dently nailed to side walls and rafters, but
can be lashed fast or held in place by up-
rights instead. Apparently, some wide
strips of bark have been used on roof. It is
a matter of taste how you trim the whiskers
on a roof. Troop 5 prefers them scraggly.
Do not overlook the pot-hook. A green
troop can put such a lean-to up by closely
following this piece of workmanship.
For other shelter and shack ideas, get a
copy of the Camping Department's "Camp
Building and Scout Shelters" from our
Supply Department. It will cost you only
15c each (50 for $6.00, 100 for $10.00).
