BAGGAGE CHECKED AT YOUR HOME TO DESTINATION BOOSTING Herbert R. Baker Feb. 19, 1930. Dear Judge : I ran out of inspiration last week but this is another one. I was the recipient cf an invitation by the Boy Scouts Mothers' Auxiliary to attend a father and son birthday dinner at the church last Wednesday evening Thorefore the reason for boosting. I suppose you wonder how a' man that has no Scouts in the family could join such a gathering, but I was not the only one in that fix, so there mus: be a reason. It was an excellent feast ~,rom start to pie a la mode with favors thrown in for good measure. I am only sorry that I haven't some of Benny Og- den's proportions when invited to such a feast. I want to thank the Mcth- ers for the invite and sincerely hope th.-y have another real soon. The occasion was in honor of sev- eral events. The first is the twentieth annivrsary of Bov Scouting. It was also Lincoln's Birthday and the regu- lar meeting of the executiv,~ commit- tee. To make the event a gala one to the memory of all concerned the ladies played hostess and invited the, So:tits Scout l)ads, Scoutmaster Reid, the executive committee and m,~--aml fed US. After the plates were shoved out of the way, chairs pushed back and feet decorat~d" wi'th bedroom slipl)ers, etc., Chairman Heywood called the session to continue to rest. (The guests could not have done otherwise --too full) He introduced Mr. Tall- man Trask, then placing a grandfath- er clock before Mr. Trask, asked him Storage Packing and Unpacking ,o limit himself to a half, ,evoh, ti.n. = His talk was based on scouting thruout the past twenty years; Sir M. i..

Ile introduced each in turn and asked them to tell a little of 'the plans they have for their department of the work. Each in turn gave an interesting talk for future Scouting in Avalon. When he introduced the publicity di- rector h- nmst have been thinking of three in one oil. Instead of smooth- ing the troubled waters as oil is sup. posed to, it caused the director to skid. He is Conunander of th.," Post that sponsors the Scout troops. It's his duty to see t'aat there is a Scout- master for both troops. It is also his duty to see that they function. The trouble is that the Scoutmast-r of the Sea Scouts is the selfsame person. In trying to uphold his posi- tion of dignity as commander he nearly had a fight with said Skil,per. Now worst of, all it's his job as dir,c- tor to tell every one about it. Boy, oh boy, where's the fire? That's a real problem. A search warrant was issued for two committee m~n that could not be there. They'll have their trial next month. I am sure that the losing out on such an excellent dinner will prov,~ punishment enough. Mrs. Renton was called on for a iew words. She very generously gave tho credit for the successful dinner to her associates. She expressed her ~!eas- ure in being able to entertain the Scouts. Scoutmaster Reid Sr. was next in- troduced. He gave a brief resume of what his troop was doing He intro- duced the troop leaders to the au(l!- ence. The Scout Mothers were praised ~o th- sky for the co-opera- tion given to the tro~:l). The program was then turned over to the boys. They proved excellent entertainers.
