11 Cub Scouts, each holding a card with a letter on the front and his line on the back. Each speaker holds up his letter as he says his line. Last line delivered by all.

B for BROTHERHOOD, boosting for each other's good
E for EVERY LAND to share in earth's riches everywhere
T for TRUSTFULNESS, trusting more and fearing less
T for TEAMWORK, for joining hands to put things through
E for EQUAL CHANCE for each nation to advance
R for REAL RESPECT in spite of race, creed, or sect.

W for WILL TO WORK for peace with faith and skill
O for OPPORTUNITY to keep our speech and action free
R for REVERENCE for a guiding providence
L for LOVE TO SPREAD around when need and bitterness are found
D for DIGNITY of man devoted to a better plan.
(All hold up letters)
There you have it, that is how you build a BETTER WORLD.

Simon Kenton Council

Arrangement: Cub Scouts hold cutouts of cars made from poster board, with letters printed on back of each one to spell out the word: C-O-N-S-E-R-V-E.

C - Cars and buses and such were invented by men.
O - Oil fields were discovered also by them.
N - Nobody really worried about the amount of fuel this would take.
S - So on no transportation did they put on the brake.
E - Eventually the amount of fuel used grew astonishingly.
R - Raising on everyone's mind a great big doubt.
V - Very soon the world's traffic was put to the test.
E - Now, to conserve fuel, we must do our best.
