SCOUT WRITES A STORY OF CAMP LIFE AT LAKE BOY SCOUTS ARE HAVING A FINE TIME AT MAXINKUCKEE HAVE PLENTY OF FUN AND
PLENTY TO EAT
    By Scout Dean Swadener. BOY SCOUT CAMP Lake Maxinkuckee, Thursday morning, August, 3. -This is a beautiful place where Logansport Troop No, 1 and the delegation of scouts from Fort Wayne, Winamac and North Manchester are in camp and the boys are certainly a happy bunch.

    The weather has been cool and pleasant Blnce we have been here and we eat and sleep and swim and do all kinds of boy atunls without -being a bit uncomfortable. Scoutmaster Chase is pretty rigid with the r ules, and that is just what we want, for everybody knows just what to do and how to do it. Everything runs as smoothly as a well oiled bike

    Major Fred Six and family among the steady visitors at are the camp making their headquarters at the Cbadwick hotel

    Each evening we have a band concert on the porch at the chadwick and everybody is praising the fine music produced by our Logansport bou Scout band, under the diredtion of prof. Sourbrine. The band boys are havin reg ular rehearsals and are making the most of their chances for practice. they play fine now and by the time they get back to Logansport they will be classed among the professionals.

    Dr. Beeman, Scoutmaster from North Manchester, is a favorite with the boys and all of them are glad to have him in camp.

    Meals are furnished in camp are dandy, just the kind of camp stuff that boys like. It sticks to your ribs and makes you feel like a Sandow. Wednesday morning for breakfast we had boiled rice, fried bacon, molasses, bread, butter, coffee and cocoa.

    the boys got passes out of the guard lines from camp Wednesday moorning from 9 to 11. Some of the boys hired boats and went rowing on the lake

    we have a fine spring board built out into the lake and we have a bunch of fun swiimming. SOme of the boys swin and dive like catfish. we got back into cam and all passes were taken up at 11 a.m.

    out 'tummies" were empty and ready for dinner after rowing and swimming and we stowed away the dinner in reg ular Boy scout stayle. dinner was made up of boiled ham, potatoes, (spuds0, bread pudding and bread and butter.

    After dinner we got passes from camp 1 to 3 p.m.

    The health of the camp has been fine, but occassionally, was you can see, with a bunch of boys, once in awhile some person will get out of order. Lawrence zfletcher of the fort wayne troop got sick with an attack of indigestion and his fever climbed up to 106, but he came through fine and is now considerably better.

    After dinner a bunch of the Winamac and fort wayne troops hired boats and made a trip across the lake to Culver Academy. The North Manchester troops took a hike in the afternoon.

    company a of the two drill swquads organized during the afternoon and we had a drill at 4 p.m. wealso hiked to Culver during the afternoon and back, covering a distance of about four miles.

    After supper last evening we had another fine concert by the logansport boy scout band, the concert being given from the porch o f the chadwick hotel, which is the cmap headquarters

    After band practice the scouts disposed of five gallons of ice cream and they did such a good job of it that ten gallons are promised for friday night.

BOY SCOUTS WILL BREAK CAMP TUESDAY EVENING

WILL ARRIVE HOME IN EVENING ON VANDALIA - MANY VISITORS

REPORTED AT CAMP YESTERDAY

By Scout Dean 8wadener. - Lake Maxinkuckee, Monday morning, Aug-, 7, Yesterday was a great day in camp. Many people from Logansport and other placea were among tho visitors, some coming by, train, but tho most of them in automobiles. Some folks even walked in several miles from the country to get a sight of the camp and see how a bunch of real live boys do when they got away from home.

Naturally wo were on our good behavior. We want to go to camp next yoar and to break the camp r ules would mean that next year our name would riot be on the list.

Among tho vsitors to camp yesterday wore Mr. and Mrs Homer Closson of Logansport. We were tickled nearly to death because Mr. and Mrs, Closson live next door and we heard straight from home.

But camp days for 1916 are drawing to a close, Tomorrow the reveille will sound for tho last tlme at noon, the soupee, soupee, soupee will call us into the mess tent for tho last meal and then our tents will be struck and thw camp equipment will be loaded on car ready for shipment back to Logansport. we expect to arrive in Loganaport on the Vandalia at 7:05 Tuesday evening, August 8.

We, have had a jolly time since wo came horo last Tuesday, Everything has gone off without any trouble, There havo boon no accidents worth mentioning, the boys, getting a stubbed toe occasionally and an occasional bump that was always made as good as new by Dr. Beeman, the physician-scoutmaster from North Manchester, Everybody has been good natured only once in awhile has there been any grouchlness and even that didn't last very long.

Scoutmaster Chase has been a daddy all of us boys and we feel that to his good management is due altogether tho good times we have had, The scouts from North Manchester, Fort Wayne and Winamac have been genuine "good scouts" and they and Iho scoutmasters who have been with them have been good shod parts of the finest Boy Scout camp that ever was.

But that's all for this time, Will see you tomorrow
