What We Found Out
ABOUT CUB SCOUT Mf BOYS
Boys are the raw material Cub Scouts are made of. They come
in all shapes and sizes, but it isn't the package that counts—
it's what's inside. You can't tell much about a boy by
counting his freckles. It's dangerous to think that all boys
are alike; they're not. All of them aren't noisy; all of them
aren't active all the time. Perhaps the only thing you can be
sure of is that the next thing they do will surprise you. In
reality, no one should be surprised at the things we found out
about boys of this age in the University of Michigan study;
we think it will help make better Cub Scouts because we under-
stand boys a little better.
