Each Cub has a three foot section of rope joined
with a square knot to that of the boy on his left. Boys hold rope back to
form a taut circle. Leader says, "You are now
part of a group of close
friends held together by the square knot - a symbol of being square. Let us
give the Cub Scout promise."
Good Turn Cubmaster Minute
Most of us are happiest
when we are doing something for others. Think for a moment ofatimewhenyou
were helpful to someone. Chances are, it made you feel pretty good. Of
course, we feel best when we do something for others without being found
out. When we help others regularly, it soon becomes a habit and to be a
natural thing. Once a you establish this habit, you will learn the real
meaning of the good turn.
Dog Skills Closing Ceremony
With all the wonderful
skills dogs can learn, there is one thing they cannot do. Dogs cannot see
colors. As a matter of fact,
monkeys and apes are the only animals that can see colors.
Do you ever feel like you
cannot do something because you are too small, too clumsy or too young?
Well next time you do, remember the dog and how he can
retrieve objects, guide the
blind, track lost people all without being able to distinguish colors.

Boys, I want to tell you a
story that has a meaning. When
I was a boy I had three turtles. They
had a beautiful terrarium with rather low sides.
They had everything they needed except one thing . . . FREEDOM.
Every chance they had, they would climb out.
People in many countries in
this world lack the same thing, FREEDOM.
But not in America. In
America we have Freedom to of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom to go
wherever we chose, the Freedom to Worship God as we wish and the Freedom to
choose people to govern us.
A boy like you can grow up
to be wherever he dreams of being. This
is why I love America. Donít
you? Good Night!

Cubmaster or Den Leader
We often speak of horizons, .not one,
but plural, horizons. Did it
ever occur to you that there are more than one?
When you have worked and planned to reach your horizon, you stop to
rest and look up to see before you still another horizon just as far away as
the last. When that horizon is within your grasp, wonder of wonders,
still another is waiting. Few
men ever reach all horizons, some never even reach the first, and still
others never start. Look at
what they miss. All they ever
see is the small area around them. This
is NOT the Cubbing way. Cub
Scouts must reach a series of horizons on their climb to the Arrow of Light.
Small horizons, but they lead to the farther horizons of Scouting and
