Chicago, April 14,—Roger C. Sulli-
▼an, 59 years old, democratic leader,
of Cook county, and prominent In
«tate and national politics for thirty
years, died at his home in Chicago
late today of bronchial pneumonia.
Hp had been seriously ill a month.
Mr. Sullivan returned to Chicago re-
cently from Hot Springs, Ark., where
he had gone for hia health after
spending a part of the winter at
palm Beach* Fla., and at Washington,
where he conferred with political
Mr. Sullivan planned to enter the
flemocratic national convention at
Ban Francisco as the leader of the
Illinois delegation of fifty-eight with,
the intention of making that his last
appearance as a political leader.
Roger Sullivan, condemned in his
own state by his opponents as a "boss"
and more than once "read out" of the
democratic party by no less a per-
lon than William Jennings Bryan, led
the movement that finally resulted In
making Woodrow Wilson president of
the United States.
It was Sullivan who headed the
democratic delegation from Illinois at
the Baltimore convention in 1911—a
delegation pledged to Champ Clark—
and who after sufficient ballots had
been cast to discharge his obligation
to Illinois, switched the vote of the
state to Wilson, and made his nomina-

Roger Sullivan as a business man
had been no less successful than as a
politician. Coming to Chicago in
1S79 to work in the railroad shops as
an apprentice machinist at $1.25 a
day, he was reputed to be worth more

Four yean after coming to Chicago
Mr. Sullivan attended his test polici-
cal meeting, a ward caucus, and from
that day dated his interest In politics.
In 1898 he waq elected to his first
political office, clerk of the probate
In 1914 he was a candidate for
United States senator, but was de-
feated by Lawrence ¥. Sherman.
President Wilson opposed Sullivan's
election. Two years later his friends
proposed his name for vice president,
but he refused to enter the race and
Insisted on the nomination of Thomas
R. Marshall for a second term.
Sullivan's differences with Bryan
dated back to the free silver cam-
paign of 1S96. He had been a dele-
gate to the democratic national con-
tion and then introduced a resolution
indorsing Bryan, which was passed.
Sullivan remained a member of the
national committee until 1916 despite
repeated efforts to oust him.

Is that in each field the same Scout
principles expressed in the Laws and
the Promise, the Motto and the Slo-

movement a unit and require that the

but good Scouts.

(Temple T«l**rara Special.)
. .New York, April , —To those wo-
men who, with the ceasing of the
myriad activities known as war work,
are looking for other opportunities for
community service, scouting is com-
mended. Just as war pressed Into
service women of all ages and con-
ditions, provided only that they were
prepared, so the Girl Scrtut Movemen
can use the most diverse talents.
Like the war, too, the Scout move-
ment needs no propaganda. It is
upon us in the shape of crowds of
young girls and women from all parts
of the country applying at National
headquarters, 189 Lexington Ave.,
New York City for membership at the
rate of 5,000 a month and calling for
leaders, and then more leaders. And
these leaders must be trained.
While the movement is in essense,
recreational, and the bulk of the
activities will always be volunteer in
character, there is more and more
need for paid and full time workers.
In localities where Scouting is
more than a small venture, It absorbs
a larger and larger proportion of the
local director's time and this logically
leads to the necessity for full time paid
service. The director must be able to
organise and administer the local of-
fice, select captains, know where to
turn for expert advfee, and help in
such matters as arranging for ex-
aminations for class and merit badges.
Not a small part of her work lg di-
recting the material business of the
Scouts. In large centers like New
York and Boston, the work involved
in handling uniforms and other
Scouting equipment is considerable,
but even in small places must be done
accurfttely. In all offices central and
local dueg must be accounted for,
literature and information most be
dispensed. But ft is not enough that
the local workers should do their
bookkeeping and clerical work accu-
rately. This local director will have
her office so run that it will be a real
example of Scouting hi practice.
The second sort of trained workers
needed are field captains and organi-
zers. National headquarters now has
four field captains working under the
direction of the secretary of Field
Work. As soon as funds are available
their number is to be increased so
that all parts of the country will be
covered. The field captain's work is
to organize Scouting in communities
asking for it and to supervise and
help local councils and troops over
the rough places that are met with.
There is a good demand for train
ing courses for captains. To properly
develop these will require the ser-
vices of people trained in all the var-
ious Scouting activities. Already en-
terprising councils and captains have
worked up local courses, and uni-
versities like Johns-Hopkins, Colum
bia, and Boston, Include Scouting in
the list of vocations for which they
offer summer school preparation.
So far there has been only one real
training school for Scout officers.
This is the First National Training)
School for Girl Scout Leaders, now in
its fourth year. During the summer
of 1619, two session* of the school
were held at Long Pond Camp near
Plymouth, Mass. The first session
was attended by sixteen girls from
eight states, who were going to act as
councillors in Scout camps later. At
the second session, sixty girls from
nine states camped together three
happy and hard working weeks, when
they learned by doing an amount of
Scout lore that was amazing.
They lived in tents and learned how
to cook, sleep and eat in the open.
The school was self-governing and the
"Pine Tree Patrol" system made it
possible to distribute the work so that
the burden fell equally and lightly,
and each learned all the necessary
camp services by being wood boy,
water boy, mess boy, scribe, and so
forth. But all this was properly sub-
ordinated to the real business which
was to become first class scouts, and
not only this but to learn how to lead
and manage their own troops. Swim-
ming, life saving, first aid, child care,
and woodcraft, drilling, signaling, and
dancing were all parts of the daily
program conducted by competent
The First National Training School
is so named because it is hoped there
will be more, serving all sections of
the country, north, south, east and
The Interest and activities of Scout-
ing have been Increased and diversifi-
ed, and there are now at least three
sorts of Scouts and three correspond-
ing fields of leadership. There is
first the wood Scout, or out-of-door
Scout. Women who are good sports-
men and who love to hike, camp, fish,
paddle, ride, swim, or who know and
love the birds and the beasts, the
flowers and the trees and who not
only love these things for themselves,
but know the joy of sharing, are
wanted for wood Scout leaders.
The second sort of Scout is the
home Scout, and the woman needed
to lead here is the one who nol only
knows such things as cooking, can-
ning, sewing, child care, nursing, but
who can enthuse into these activities
the spirit of play and community in-
terest which raises them from the
level of drudgery-
Then, there are the citizen Scouts
who are specially interested in such
things as public health, clean streets,
keeping beautiful parks, back yard
gardens and take an intelligent inter-
est generally in civic affairs. These
Scouts look to the club and profes-
sional women for their leaders.
This classification of Scout activities
does not mean that there are actually
three separate divisions of Scouts.
The Scoot program Is so arranged that
every Scout shall have all three of
these general fields of Interest snd
