PREVIEW. Our cover photo, by Ozzie
Sweet, caught Troop 1 of Dover, Mass., do-
ing what they do best — hiking mountain
trails. The setting was New Hampshire's
White Mountains, a piece of the northeast's
most rugged terrain. The theme of their
outings is always "safety through skill" as
the story, "Accident-Proof Mountaineer-
ing" by Robert Kelsey, clearly points out.
With over 112 million cars and trucks on
our highways, crossing a street can be a
scary and often fatal high adventure. For
you, your children, grandma and grandpa,
Jim Winchester's article "Watch Your
Step!" is worth reading and talking about
around the dinner table or at other family
gatherings. It's well to heed the National
Safety Council's advice: "There must be
more safety training in the homes. It is not
up to the schools alone." If we all follow
their advice, we can help reduce the need-
less pedestrian deaths — over 10,000 of
them occurred last year.
Scout and Scouter badges are a part of
the history and charisma of our movement.
Where they're worn, when they're worn,
and how they're earned are always sub-
jects of high interest with our readers.
Hugh C. Clayton, Chairman of our national
Insignia and Uniform Committee, offers
some up-to-the-minute answers to your
most asked questions in the story "Insignia
— Symbols of Achievement."
You don't have to be a bird lore expert
to wear a Scoutmaster's badge, but it never
hurts to know something about our high
flying friends. To ease you and your boys
into this fascinating hobby, we've called
upon Audubon Society expert Howard
Boyd to offer up some tips. His story: "A
Bird Lore Primer."
It's tough to get Scouting to kids in the
inner cities and the long stretch of rural
areas, but we manage to do it, often with
Scoutmobiles manned by paraprofessional
Scouters. Staffer Bob Peterson gives you
the rundown about how this idea has taken
hold in "Scoutmobiles Stretch Our Reach."
Here’s what’s next.
