BEFORE LEAVING HIS hometown of
Marietta, Ga., last October to study glacial
geology on the frozen continent of Ant-
arctica, Eagle Scout Mark W. Leinmiller
had prepared himself physically and
emotionally for cold weather. So he ad-
justed very quickly to living in a tent on
Darwin Glacier where summertime Ant-
arctic temperatures routinely drop to 20
Leinmiller was following in the historic
footsteps of two other Eagle Scouts. Paul
Siple had gone there in 1928 with Com-
mander Richard E. Byrd. And Richard
Chappell worked in 1957-58 with the U. S.
International Geophysical Year expedi-
tion. Mark felt compelled to do his best,
because in a way he represented every
member of the Boy Scouts of America.
How did he do? Well, not bad. Not bad
at all. He left knowing full well that his
Scout training had given him know-how
that made life in Antarctica a lot easier.
Map reading, backpacking, and other
Scouting skills made the difference. Read
the story. It's called "Report from the
The October Boys' Life, as usual, con-
tains a full complement of program arti-
cles designed to help boys and leaders in
packs and troops. Want to learn a little
about wok cooking? You can in October. It
ties in with the Feast and Famine Boy
Scout program feature for November.
Also in the program section are short
features revolving around Knights of
Yore, the Cub Scout theme.
And that's not all that October Boys'
Life offers. For there's lots of exciting
reading. Try "The Biggest of All
Animals," naturalist George Laycock's
informative article on the monsters of
several different animal species. Or read
the "Statue of Liberty" and discover what
it is that attracts more than one million
people a year to the island in New York
Harbor where she stands.
Then there is the exciting conclusion of
"Thirst"—exciting, contemporary fiction.
No need to tip you on how it comes out.
But you'll like it, and so will the Scouts and
Cub Scouts who read it.
The Bicycling column tells how to map
your bike hike. That way every member of
your unit can have his own detailed direc-
tions. And in the Magic column, learn the
story of the vanishing quarters. Or read
about whippoorwills and other night birds
in the Nature column.
Several how-to stories are in the Oc-
tober issue. Read about troublefree decals,
hobby glue and cement, and a model
mobile. There's a Slide of the Month,
always popular. Collecting is even more
popular, and the story on "Free and Low
Cost Collecting" tells you how to do it.
Boys' Life always has good reading.
The magazine is a good investment in
Scouting. For only $3.60 a year, anyone in
your pack or troop can get it sent to his
home. That's only 30 cents a copy, about
the price of a candy bar. As a gift for
others, send requests to Boys' Life, P.O.
Box 61030, Dallas/Fort Worth Airport,
Tex. 75261. For nonmembers the cost for a
year is $7.20. It's $12 for two years and $17
for three. Subscriptions going outside the
U.S. require an additional $ 1.75 a year. ■
