New Building

Boat piers at the lake (new
last year) will be completed by
summer, and the camp expects
to have a fleet of 12 rowboats
for use by the scouts on this
five-acre body of water. The
camp chapel has been improved
by the addition of a cupola and
a bell given by Fred M. Med-
lock of Laurens, and by the
addition of benches in the
chapel given by Mr. and Mrs.
Traverse S. Foster of Green-

Camp Old Indian had an en-
rollment of more than a thou-
sand boy-weeks last summer
and next season promises to be
even larger, Mr. Williamson
said. The camp had an envi-
able health record last summer,
he added, with no serious acci-
dents, and, according to the re-
port made by Dr. Alva S. Pack,
chairman of the health and
safety committee, the campers
gained 4,000 pounds of weight
during the summer, or an av-
erage of four pounds per boy
per week.

The ideal camp experience
comes to the scout who attends
camp with his troop, camp offi-
cials feel. The camp program
offers an opportunity for troops
to attend as a unit and to
carry on their own program,
supplemented by general camp
activities and the assistance of
the central camp staff.

Periods for next summer, to
begin with the evening meal on
Wednesday and close with the
noon meal the following Tues-
day, have been scheduled as
follows: first period, June
11-17, pioneer camp - camp
staff only; second period, June
18-24; third, June 25-July 1;
fourth, July 2-8; fifth, July
9-15; sixth, July 16-22; and
seventh, July 23-29.

Camp Old Indian is two miles
east of highway 26 (Greenville-
Hendersonville highway), 26
miles north of Greenville.

Today's column is a note of
public thanks to the person or
persons responsible for bring-
ing to Slater two very good
pictures recently. They are
''Sister Kenny'' and ''Stanley
and Livingston.''

''Sister Kenny'' is a pic-
torial story of the life of Miss
Elizabeth Kenny, Australian
bush nurse who discovered a
new and practical and revolu-
tionary method of treatment
for the victims of infantile
paralysis - a method that leaves
the patient whole and well and
uncrippled with no trace of the

''Stanley and Livingston'' is
the story of the adventures of
David Livingston, missionary
explorer who went from Lon-
don to Africa in the latter part
of the last century. The things
he found and the works he ac-
complished while in the Dark
Continent provide a thrilling
and inspiring two hours of en-

Long ago educators recog-
nized the advantage of pictures
as an educational factor, and
more recently many of our
schools and churches have been
using visual aids as a supple-
ment to teaching. ''One pic-
ture is worth a hundred

Mostly, we think of the
movies as a source of entertain-
ment, but they are much more
than juat that; they are a
source of great influence on the
lives of the peoples of a com-

In Slater, the majority of
movie goers are our young peo-
ple. When these young people
see in pictured stories the lives
of the great people who have
had a part in making advances
in medicine, science, religion,
literature, art, music, politics,
or anything that goes toward
making living better, they
themselves are inspired to ap-
preciate and achieve greatness.

Another reason why these
two pictures are especially ap-
preciated is that people natu-
rally seek some form of recrea-
tion, and when good, clean,
stimulating fun is provided, the
tendancy to seek out undesir-
able forms of excitement is

Thanx for a couple of really
outstanding pictures!
