Volume 5 Issue 7
February 1999


Ni Hao! (Hello) This theme, "Gateway to the Orient" is a wonderful opportunity to introduce your Cub Scouts to the Orient. In this issue you will find pronunciations for commons words we use in here in the U.S.

Watakaushi wa Chris desu.

That is a Japanese phrase for My name is Chris. Mike (PA) sent me a great idea for the cubs to make an abacus. With Cheryl S. help I have a couple of recipes. A lot of scouters helped me pull this issue together. And for that I am truly grateful. This theme was kind of tough for me. As always, I am just the typist and organizer of Baloo's Bugle; it is all the fabulous leaders across the US and other countries, that make it as helpful as it is xie xie (Thank You).
