PAGE FOUR THE CATALINA On Tuesday evening of last week there was a large gathering of inter- ested citizens at the Atwater Hotel, to witness the ceremonies connected with the second Court of Honor of Avalon Boy Scouts, Troop No. 1, and also to enjoy the various exhibitions of Scout- craft on the part of its members. Previous to holding the Court of Honor the Scouts illustrated various parts of camp life on the large stage, which had been admirably fitted up for the purpose. There were a couple of tents, a campfire outfit, camp cooking utensils, etc. The back of the stage had been filled with good sized fresh tree branches, etc., so that when the Scouts came into camp it appeared as though they came out of the woods. There was an illustration of sema- phore signaling, first aid work, carry- ing injured persons, etc. One of the ex- emplifications was of various forms of bindaging, such as for injuries of the head, arm and fingers; binding on sptints~ etc. We understand that con- siderable credit is due Dr. E. W. Min- hey for the fine exhibit in bandaging done by the Scouts. One of the events of particular in- terest to the boys present was the night scene at camp. The lights were all turned out, and with no artificial light except the campfire (red electric lights) aided by the moonlight which filtered down through a large skylight, the effect was quite realistic• The Scouts sang songs, listened to stories, gave their yells, and at "taps" rolled up in their blankets• Following this came the Court of Honor, which was presided over by the local Scout Committee, Messrs. Mc- Millan, Stevenson and Heywood, with the latter acting as chairman. (At ses- sions of the court new members are received, those already members are advanced according to the grade they have reached, and the First Class Scouts are awarded the merit badges they may have earned). The new Scouts received into mem- bership at this time in the Tenderfoot degree were Ralph German, Truxton Ross and Gordon Coleman. Fred McKelvey was advanced from Tenderfoot to Second-Class Scout. Having successfully passed the nec- essary tests, in the order named, the following were admitted as First-Class Scouts : George Minney, Arthur Gould- ing, John Shields, John Minney, Char- les Cliff and Carl Eddy. 'rwent ;-Seven i ]'erit fiadges were awarded to seven Scouts, as follows: George Minney, 5; John Shields, 6; Theodore Sierks, 4; Charles D'eSoto, 1; Walter Coffey, 7; Malcolm Renton, 3; • Arthur GOulding~ 1. : Mr. Ralph Heywood made a few re- marks concerning the work of the local Troop, after which he introduced Tall- man H. Trask, Scout Executive of Pasadena District Council, who spoke very interestingly about the worth of the various things which the Boy Scouts were learning, and gave several apt illustrations of their practical ap- plication. Mr. Trask praised the ex- hibition of Scoutcraft on the part of Avalon Troop---especially the bandag- ing. He also announced that William Wrigley, Jr., was heartily in accord with the work being .!o,e ftw Avalon By Chas. H. Smith boys, and that he had given substan- tial evidence thereof in presenting the Troop with a check for $200. Mr. Trash also called attention to the fact that the "Lone Scouts of America," organized in 1909, have been consolidated with the Boy Scouts of America, which means that there is but one organization in the United States which can now legally use the words, "Scout," "Scouts," "Boy Scout," "Boy Scouts, or Scouting." That or- ganization is the Boy Scouts of Amer- ica, operating under the Federal Char- ter issued by the United States Con- gress. He was followed by Vernon L. Baird, Field Executive of Pasadena District Council. H. Benjamin Robison, Assistant Scoutmaster of Avalon Troop, was al- so introduced. He testified to the pleasure he had received from work among the boys, and thanked the peo- ple of Avalon for the hearty encour- agement he had received from the fathers and mothers and others inter- ested. Avalon Troop No. 1, Boy Scouts of America, is officered as follows: Theodore Sierks, Senior Patrol Leader. Malcohn Renton, Patrol Leader of Seals. John Shields, Patrol Leader of Quails. Walter Coffey, Patrol Leader of Foxes. Carl Eddy, Scribe. George Minney, Quartermaster. John Shields, Bugler. In this connection it may be well to announce that equipment to the val0e of $50 will be given to imtividual Boy Scouts and to the patrols to which they belong as prizes in the three fol- lowing contests, in connection with "KINDNESS TO ANIMALS WEEK," which will be held April 7th to 12th. 1.--POSTER CONTEST--First and second prizes will be given for the best two posters made by Scouts• Each poster nmst be made with "Kin(l- ness to Animals" in mind, and must have the following wording on it: PET SHOW, TOURNAMENT PARK, SATURDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 12th.
