Scouting has been described as the process of making real boys into real men by a real program that works. This program is adapted to the boy's leisure hours, but its principles are the kind that permeate every phase of his life, becoming part and parcel of himself. Character development is the keynote of scouting. By precept and practice it instills ideals of courage and honor, cheerfulness and kindness, loyalty and obedience, cleanliness of mind and body, faithfulness to duty, devotion to country, reverence to God. By his oath the scout pledges himself to "help other people at all times," to keep himself "physically strong, mentally awake, morally straight." Contents of this bulletin include: (1) The scout movement; (2) Democratic character of the movement; (3) Nonsectarian and nonpartisan; (4) Scout leaders; (5) The plastic age; (6) Growth and extent of the movement; (7) Scouting and education; (8) The scout program; (9) Scouting and the public schools; (10) Scouting courses in colleges and universities; (11) The department of education; (12) Scout handbooks, etc.; (13) The library department; (14) Scouting and the movies; (15) Scouting and war service; (16) Scouting and juvenile delinquency; and (17) Scouting and soldier making.
