In order to introduce a topic in scouting it is necessary to have some understanding as to the purpose of scouting. It is a common conception of many that scouting is a school for juvenile delinquents. Others believe it is an organization only for the purpose of employing leisure time. A few of the people of the moderate and lower incomes feel that it is an organization for only the privileged class. Scouting should be an organization for all the boys over the age of twelve years and should offer the same opportunity and training for each boy regardless of his home life. It should be an organization that offers training and pleasure for boys who have the proper attitude toward life to continue in social activities without changing that attitude.
