BOY SCOUTS IN SIBERIA.
Vice Counsel Thomas Asks for Guidance in Forming Organization.
The Boy Scout movement is developing Siberia, and the national headquarters of the organization here has just received a letter from Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, asking for guidance in their program and for uniforms and equipment upon which they may model. The letter came from Vice Consul Edward B. Thomas at Krasnoyarsk and came through J. K. Caldwell, American Consul at Vladivostok and the State Department at Washington.
Vice Consul Thomas wrote: "I would like to give every aid possible to the Scout movement here, for it is developing in the boys just those qualities of service and good citizenship which are so needed in Russia at this time."
Chief Scout Executive James E. West has forwarded a list of literature and Scout equipment to the Chief Scout of Krasnoyarsk.
