Download PDF for this date

On his twelfth birthday, Jack Williamson is going to joion the B’nai B’rith Boy Scout troop here.

For it was members of that troop who saved Jack from death last December, when he was caught under a concrete wall in a local creek. He had been reaching for his sled, when he lost his balance and fell in. He was pinned down by a cement retaining wall, with only his face above water. Members of Fairview Troop 1, B. S. A., came to his rescue, and extricated him.
