About our cover: More than
700 issues of Scouting
magazine have come off
the presses since 1913. So

4 Scouting's Fight Against Drug Abuse
Chief Scout Executive Ben Love introduces the BSA's
program to fight drug abuse.
10 Come Join the Gang

village newcomers, modern-day boys head for a Scout
troop housewarmin' to see what Scouting's about.
18 75 Years in the Life of a Magazine
For three-quarters of a century Scouting magazine has
reflected the growth and vitality of our movement.

What a glorious time! Seven days at camp, often a
Scout's first week from home on his own, learning new
skills, making new friends, passing tests.
28 A Playground for Building Self-Confidence
Project COPE participants face a dizzying series of
physical obstacles that test strength and agility.

In the center of this issue you will find the BSA's 18-

abuse among our children.

more fun or who learns more.
36 Bright Horizons for Catholic Leaders
Of the BSA's 3.5 million youth members, close to 10
percent are in Catholic church units. If 1986's impetus
continues, a great many more will join up.
38 Old-Timers Who Just Don't Act Their Age
Scouting alumni often look back fondly on those "good
old days" at summer camp. But not every Scout council
capitalizes on the good will evoked by those memories
the way they do at Caddo Area Council in Texas.
42 Lady at the Top

Scouter made Anita Gentry the most qualified candi-
date for council commissioner, so her peers didn't hesi-
tate a moment in electing her to this key post.
