About our cover:
Every other month in the
city of Metropolis, III., the
Scouts of Troop 101 visit the
homes of residents to collect
newspapers for recycling.
The 22-year tradition, which
the troop started four years
after the town adopted Su-
perman as its official super-
hero, helps pay camping
expenses for every troop
member. Our account of
this super troop's super ef-
fort begins on page 30. Pho-
tograph by Stephen Seeger.
