THE POWER TO PASS—THAT'S DIXIE GAS STAEBLER OIL COMPANY SALINE In the far north, the far south, the far east, and the far west the Boy Scout oath and law will ring out around 1,000 camp fires and othei meetings this week in observance of the twenty-first anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. A troop of Eskimo scouts of Point Barrow, at the northernmost part of Alaska, Moro scouts in Malay archipelago of the Philippines, and native scouts of Hawaii, will he among those who will join in celebrating the occasion of scouting in America he- coming of age. In the other island possessions of the United States, Porto Rico, the Virgin Islands; and even in the Canal Zone,, native scouts, who aret members, will be standing at attention and- dedicating themselves to the fundementals of the Boy Scout movement. James E. West has been scout executive of the Boy Scouts of America since its inception in 1910. Of the international total of 2,000,000, nearly half are composed of American- scouts and leaders, playing the great game of scouting and constituting the largest organized force of youth in the history of the world... How effective the organization 'can- be -in. emergencies, was shown by the mobilization of scouts for ■ service to the Florida disasters, the Mississippi, floods, the- Arkansas tornado, the New "England floods and the Arkansas flood of two-.years ago. The work that scouts do' in normal times, such as feeding birds' in snow bound sections Of the country,-providing food and clothing for needy families at holiday times and in the daily good turn done for "people -in their home neighborhoods, has proven their value as an economic factor in America. - -■ - * ** - - - ' ■ * - -* - Last year, scouting records show, the scouts planted more than 1,000,- 000 trees and rendered a national service in fighting forest fires, protecting an^ feeding gaine birds eliminating corn rust, removing nails and sharp objects from national highways "ind acting as life guards in swimming .pools and bathing places in every state. Several scouts succumbed in saving others, the National -Court of Honor reports. In some instances, out of the thousands of cases of heroism reported by observers, scouts were awarded the gold Honor Medal, highest honor of the Boy Scout movement, for exceptional bravery under extremely hazardous conditions. The national field department under leadership of Dr. George J. Fisher, deputy chief scout executive, reports a record year, and as a result, the scout program, and character building and citizenship training is available to every boy of scout age living undter the American Flag. Movement Extends Rapidly The vastness of this task is outlined in the yearly reports of the organization and stories from the. far off .portions of the United States, giving news of scouting there, show, in some measure, .the accomplishment of last year in organizing the Territory of Alaska for scouting and extending the work of the movement in each of the other possessiQns. The group of Eskimos at Point Barrow was formed under leadership of Clark M. Giber of the 'Bureau of< lEducation, United States Dapart- met of Interior, who has since moved to a new field of endesver. Two pa-^ trols of scouts vthere are called the Reindeers and the Polar Bears. The Seattle (Washington) Council of the Boy .Scouts took over the work of completely organizing Alaska for Scouting during the autumn of two years ago and have made marked progress. -. Scouting in Porto Rico One of the most ardent scouts of the island of Porto Rico was its Ex- governor, Theodore Roosevelt. He was a member of the national executive board of the Boy Scouts of America, honorary president of the *?orto Rico council of the organiza- and also an honorary scout. The national 'field department reports that interest in the work of .the Boy Scout movement has rapidly spread in every part of the island. Porto Rico is 1399 miles firom New York. Because of the mixed ' population, its represents an unusually difficult problem from a social and educational standpoint. Scouting has long been on a working basis in the Philippines, where Scout Executive A. S. McFarlane. the same man who organized scout- (Concluded on page six) Will'Now Retail Hi-Speed "Gasoline and Ethyl Announces Owner.

The inspectors included George F. Tompson, state budget director; W. J. Rutley, state building superintendent; W. A. Laramie, state prisor industrial manager; Dr. G. F. Inch, who "will be superintendent of the in stitution; J. E. Burnett, who will b^ chief steward; S. E. Johnson statr resident superintendent; L. F. Rand all, state resident auditor. Peggy Joyce asserts that she iz being /a. very good girl, citing ar proof the fact that she hasn't .marled anyone for three or four years. Mr. Allison, of Ann Arbor's 'puWi- schools, gave a fine address at th meeting of the Rotary club las Thursday noon. He spoke on "Inter national Relations." Mr. Allison toured Europe in r leisurely manner last, summer an. took note of a great many thine that have to do with- world affairs He visited the great English ship building plants at Clyde, where ir. stead of a number of great yes£-,:; being unaer construction there is tir one. He, went to the coal fields ir Wales and learned that the miners strike lasted so long that other na tions succeeded in capturing her former coal markets. He inquired ir*"- the dole system, to learn that marr. families out of work are living in better shape under the dole than the" were before it was instituted, because every member of the family out of work, which often includes s wife, is drawing funds from the government. All of these factors combined are responsible for the bad condition England is in financially. The speaker told of his experiences in Russia and-commented on the Soviet's famous "five year plan." The latter, is .being, carried out in a larg scale and results in' virtual slavery for .every.worker in that great empire. The result is that thel products of' this slave labor are^being dumpei? into other countries at what price it will bring and the money thus derived goes back to Russia to further the '•'five'' year plan-.",.-. Not only manufactured goods ajfe -thus disposed of but grain,-;timber| etc. I In Germany ' Mr. AUfson found the people kindly, but bitter at the treatment they feel has been imposed'on (them as regards', war debts. They feel "that they should be given more time, in which tq»pay their huge debts—that the present rates of payment are strangling their industrie? and handicapping . -them in making good on their obligations. The speaker gave it as his opinion that unless our tariff barriers are strengthened to meet the Russian in- vason and war debts among the different nations are more equitablj'- arranged as to settlements, we are in for a 16ng siege of unrest here and abroad'. Ed. Reed if Ypsilanti was a visto- at the meeting. Today's program is to be "Play and Sing," with several of the members designated to perform stunts oi which a few are inclined to believe they're not capable. Whether a Fritz Kreisler or another Caruso is uncovered remains to be seen. WALTER O. THEURER Walter O. Theurer, aged 31 years and son of Mr. and Mrs. George Theurer of Saline, died at his' home in Ann Arbor at 510 Gott street after an illness of eight weeks of after aniline ss of eight weeks of spinal meningitis.

He is survived by the widow, Eleanor; his parents; a brother, Karl, of York township; and a sister, Mrs. Al bert Bredernitz, of Saline.
