Gay enough to hang on anyone's
Christmas tree is the December is-
sue of Boys' Life, with a cover
painting by Lowell Hess.
Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Ex-
plorers will find it worth framing to
hang up in their room — but the
cover is only a fitting wrapper for a
wonderful package of good reading
and good Scouting!
The theme for Scouting in Janu-
ary is "Winter Skills," both indoor
and outdoor, and Boys' Life has its
fine staff of writers loading your
arms with all sorts of bundles,
"things to do," and "things to
make," as well as some of the grand-
est stories ever to come your way.
A timely story "Make Way for
Christmas" by Carl Henry Rathjen
leads the way. The adventure of
flashing blades in the game of ice
hockey is told by Jackson Scholz,
while another terrific "Mudhen"
yarn by Merrit P. Allen introduces
the subject of "Earache in B Mi-
nor"! The popular fire dog hero con-
tinues his adventures in "Fighting
Heart," by Howard M. Brier.
Hobbies? You bet! Shutterbugs
will thrill to the success story of a
boy with a camera in "Guys Who
Make Good," and Glenn A. Wagner
gives you a terrific new idea titled
"Plastic Magic." You can preserve
nature specimens, maybe even go
into business! Ben Hunt is featuring
"Linoleum Block Christmas Cards,"
there is a tin-can lantern by Bob
Jones, and a terrific idea for all of
you on "Memory Slides." Yes, it's
a new wrinkle on neckerchief slides.
There's a lot more, of course. You
will ride across the mountains with
William McMorris , in "Pioneering
Across Philmont," and you'll have
the timely helps of "Hiking with
Green Bar Bill" as he talks about
* * *
There is so much program help
and good reading in Boys' Life, we
suggest that all Troops and Posts
dig into the treasury or earn some
money and buy themselves Boys'
Life for Christmas. It will give you
good reading and better Scouting
for a whole year.

munity and in the state, to the
preservation of democracy and the
American way of life. A boy cannot
receive much of the value of Scout-
ing unless he joins and participates.
Contrary to common belief, not
enough boys belong to Scouting in
most communities. There are hun-
dreds of thousands, yes, there are
millions who should be Cub Scouts
or Boy Scouts or Explorers. Mem-
bership opportunity is every Scout-
er's business and must be planned
like camps and hikes and personal
These are only some of the spe-
cifics which Units will plan for as
they prepare to consolidate the po-
sition in 1951. Weaknesses must be
faced frankly and with the resolu-
tion and courage to correct them.
This may make the difference be-
tween fair and fine results in terms
of real outcomes.
Every Unit Leader and Commis-
sioner should be on the lookout for
the new 1951 Goal Sheets. But
in the meantime, being practical
Scouters and putting first things
first, let us make certain of the rec-
ord we write this December!
Be sure you get SCOUTING
to follow you. As soon as you
know what your new address
will be, send it — together with
your old address — to SCOUT-

The sooner you send in the
change of address, the fewer

do send us word, we must wait
until the post office at your old
