TO SCOUTS AND SCOUTERS:
Your cooperation is requested in securing the widest pos-
sible distribution and practical use of the statement and
pledge printed on the inside back cover of Scouting this
month. Separate copies may be secured suitable for dis-
play in offices and homes. See also page 3.
We invite especial attention to the following paragraph:
"While recognizing the urgent necessity for mili-
tary preparedness, we are deeply convinced that
the paramount need in national defense is the
strengthening and invigorating of democracy in
the United States. This we propose to do through
our respective programs of activity and education."
Further, we urge you to reflect upon the importance of
the statement and to subscribe to the Pledge, and do all
in your power to have others do likewise.
A place has been provided for your signature as evi-
dence of your personal commitment and agreement.
Chief Scout Executive and
Editor, Boys' Life
