JAMBOREE OF SCOUTS TO
BE HELD IN 1937—WEST
The National Jamboree of the
Boy Scouts of America will de-
finitely be held in the summer
of 1937, according to a nation-
wide announcement by Chief
Scout Executive James E. West.
This confirmation of a tentative
plan was made public on August
8th, the anniversary of the post-
ponement of last year's Jam-
boree at which time nationally
known officials were forced to
"ocommend the cancellation be-
cause of a threatened epidemic.
On the very day that marked
the anniversary of the cancella-
tion, East Texas Scouts pulled
into Tyler at the close of the
first annual Etex Scout Caravan,
an 1800 mile trip which covered
the scenic and historic spots of
Texas. Scouts from local troops
were joined by their fellows from
throughout East Texas on what
is reported to have been the most
unusual trip ever executed in
this part of the country.
The caravan included four
large busses containing a total of
85 scouts and 12 adults. The
"chuck wagon" crew added an-
other three men, and the two
State Highway Patrolmen escort-
ed the party throughout the trip.
Scout Executive L. S. Harliey and
Judge Tom L. Beauchamp served
as advance agents in completing
all arrangements prior to the
arrival of the caravan.
Scouts Logging Trip
Local scouts are busily engaged
in writing their "log" of the trip,
and these will be submitted to the
council office. Historical high-

lights included the visit to the
Alamo, Roy Bean's court near
Sanderson and old Fort Davis.
Army posts along the way ex-
tended special courtesies to the
caravan, including Randolph
Field, Fort Clark, and Fort D. A.
Russell. In addition to three days
of mountain climbing in the rug-
ged Chisos, other distinct scenic
treats included Carlcbad Cavern,
Longhorn Cavern, the Davis
mountains, and Mt. Locke Ob-
Entertainment along the route
kept the caravan in high spirits.
A huge barbecue on the Brite
Ranch and a roping exhibition of
the Prude Ranch brought "wild
west" atmosphere into the trip.
Excellent swimming was reported
at Blanco, Fort Davis, and Fort
D. A. Russell, Marathon, Balmor-
hea, and Cisco. The scouts re-
turned with many things to tell
their troops, and are providing
the program in this week's
In spite of the "On to Wash-
ington" movement in connection
with next year's Jamboree, it is
felt that a similar caravan may be
staged later in the summer of
1937. It is thought that many
other Texas councils will join the
local caravan to make up a party
of over 400 covering substantially
the same route as was taken by
this year's group. Meanwhile
While most of the stuff in this
column has been more or less
puny puns and whatnot, this
week we would like to pass on a
little serious vein of thought con-
cerning something so many of us
are prone to think little about.
We refer to an article written by
Hubert M. Harrison for the East
Texas Magazine, entitled:
UNSELFISH friendship is a
rare luxury in these busy mo-
dern days when the tempo of
life is fast and furious. People
used to take time to know their
friends, to revel in the pleasant,
quiet exchange of thoughts, or to
enjoy the acme of congeniality—
the ability to sit together without
Most so-called friendship is so
mixed up with business or social
aspiration that it is hard to find
the real article. Friendship might
be defined as that quality qt
mutual interests, tastes, respect,
and regard that causes two people
to enjoy being together and
which would cause each one to
help the other if he needed it.
The term, friend, is loosely used
to mean anyone you meet often
and with whom you have been
able to observe the usual ameni-
ties of civilized society. Most of
these co-called friends are mere-
ly acquantances whose loyalty
has never been tried. It has been
said that "a friend is a person
who knows all about you and
still likes you."
Only idealist look for perfect-
ion in their friends. We must
take our friends as we find them,
the bad with the good, the weak-
nesses with the strength, believ-
ing that there is far more good
than bad in everybody. Friend-
ship has its penalties. Nothing
hurts quite so much as disap-
pointment in a trusted friend.
The old-fashioned custom of
visiting seems to have begun to
pass out with the horse and bug-
gy. Those were the days when
friendships had time to grow and
flower. But we can't go back.
Today we must adapt our
friendships to the times and try
to find a few precious moments
to know our friends before it is
too late. We cannot buy that sort
| of pleasures in the temples of
amusements. It is a joy distilled
of hearts in tune.

Like the tradition battle that was lost for

dividends in protection and appearance;
