SCOUTING'S PROGRAM OF ACTION
FOR STRENGTHENING AND INVIGORATING DEMOCRACY
In the lead article, "A Program for Action by
Scouters in the National Emergency," in last
month's Scouting, it was announced that the Boy
Scouts of America cooperated with the Citizenship
Educational Service in issuing "A Call to All
Americans" on the basis that:
"While recognizing the urgent necessity for military 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."
In his lead article this month Dr. West presents
in greater detail a Program of Action, with the
hope that it will help every Scout Leader to make
Scouting more effective. The program suggested
is practical and specific. It calls for an Inventory
and Roll Call of Scouting's strength (pages 6-7),
for the further development of the Scout Emer-
gency Service Corps idea (pages 4, 11-12), and
for preparation to mobilize Scouts and Scouters
quickly to render service in case of disaster or
emergency (pages 4, 13, 16-17). Certain recogni-
tions are provided to acknowledge achievement.
Here’s what’s next.
