“You can’t build a Sputnik, but you can influence your church, your PTA, … or similar organizations to sponsor


a Scouting unit.” LOUIS B. SELTZER, 1958


“It’s hard for a boy to get to be an Eagle Scout, too. It’s hard for you to give your time as Scout leaders and Scout parents. This time that you give, though, is worth it.


… Without you, there could be no Scouting.” JIMMY STEWART, 1960


1960s


For the BSA’s 50th anniversary, Scouting assesses the current landscape: “A view of our fifty states on any weekend would show hundreds of thousands of Scout campfires blazing—each fire a symbol of our growing strength.”


In an article by “Nostradamus,” we learn what a Scout camp will look like in the year 2000. “No gear, no pack, no duffel bag to carry. Radar- rockets deliver anything needed in near-zero time.”


Scouting puts the odds at “five to two that a former Scout will be the first American in space.” Good call, as Alan Shepard was a First Class Scout.


BSA introduces Fit for Tomorrow, lamenting boys who have become soft through their “push-button, power-driven way of living.” Sound familiar?
