PAGE TEN AVALON COURT OF HONOR WAS LADLES AID DINNER WELL ATTEI%DED PROVES COMPLETE SUCCESS (Continued from Page 1, Col. 1) is indeed a tlibute to the magnitude of scouting in the United States. - The Scouts of Avalon, Troop No. 1, nnder tile direction of Scout Master Ted Sierks, put all a fire-making dem(mstration, which was greatly ell- joyed by the audience. There was a contest between 1)ick Shillander who demonstrated making a fire by fric- tion, and Dick Peterson, who demon- strated making a fire by using flint. The contest was won by Dick Peter- son in one attempt in start a fire, as it required three attempts by Dick Shil- lander to use the bow ar~spindle and generate fire by friction. N,x ,Tile Scout Mothers' Auxili/t'rv, with Mrs. Esther Hite as l)resident, and as- sisted by Mrs. Alice Rinehart and Mrs. Madeline Jennings, served delicious re- freshments, which were greatly enjoyed , by all. The meeting was concluded with Edwin R. Abbott thanking the persons who have been very helpful in improv- ing the Scout Hut. These were: Hugh 1a'. Smith, who put in a new walkway; Harry Johnson, Ernest V. Jennings and Harold M. Hall, who t)ro~ided gas service to the hut: Victor H. Crus- han, who provided a Butane Gas cabi- net, and Ralph C. Ellison who supplied a gas stove. David Ray Arnold atlnotznced that the next Court of Honor would be held on February 12th. This will be a par- ticularly significant event, since it will occur during the thirty-first annivcrs- arv celebraton of Scouting in the United States.

IL I,I'] 'ITT The dinner t)ut on Fridav evening by the [>hmkctt organization in behalf of the Ladies Aid Society of the Com- nmnity Congregational Church, so that they might be able to make a pledge toward the church budget for 1941, was quite successful. Those who attended had a substan- tim meal--in fact, all they could eat. The talks by Mr. Plunkett were educa- tional and interesting, as also were the pictures, shown. And--best of all, the ladies now have a fumt of $23. or more toward what- ever sum they may pledge toward the budget for next year. Then, too, all who partook of the meal took away a valuable memento, while others secured prizes of value. The Plunkett dinners always draw a satisfied crowd.

In a late issue the editor gives this bit of good advice: "There can be no reason at all why most of us should lay up our rods, our guns, or our golf clubs until the war is over. To do so is but to carry out what Hitler would have us' when we think of it rationa foolishness of such a course apparent. There can be but viduals who would not obtain deal of benefit from a fishi or from a few hours waterside; as a tonic angling if any equals." for all the family --JUST A FEW GIFT SUGGESTIONS-- Mother: Dad: Silk Hosiery .
