THE BRAVE JAMIES AND DAVIDS AND ANDYS EVERYWHERE WHO KEEP THEIR GRIT AND DO THEIR BEST WHEN THE MISTS HANG LOW
"If you and I--just you and I-- Should laugh instead of worry; If we should grow--just you and I-- Kinder and sweeter hearted, Perhaps in some near by and by A good time might get started; Then what a happy world 'twould be For you and me--for you and me!"
Tempting boys to be what they should be--giving them in wholesome formwhat they want--that is the purpose and power of Scouting. To helpparents and leaders of youth secure _books boys like best_ that arealso best for boys, the Boy Scouts of America organized EVERY BOY'SLIBRARY. The books included, formerly sold at prices ranging from$1.50 to $2.00 but, by special arrangement with the several publishersinterested, are now sold in the EVERY BOY'S LIBRARY Edition at $1.00per volume.
The books of EVERY BOY'S LIBRARY were selected by the LibraryCommission of the Boy Scouts of America, consisting of George F.Bowerman, Librarian, Public Library of the District of Columbia;Harrison W. Craver, Director, Engineering Societies Library, New YorkCity; Claude G. Leland, Superintendent, Bureau of Libraries, Board ofEducation, New York City; Edward F. Stevens, Librarian, PrattInstitute Free Library, Brooklyn, N. Y., and Franklin K, Mathiews,Chief Scout Librarian. Only such books were chosen by the Commissionas proved to be, by _a nation wide canvas_, most in demand by the boysthemselves. Their popularity is further attested by the fact that inthe EVERY BOY'S LIBRARY Edition, more than a million and a quartercopies of these books have already been sold.
We know so well, are reminded so often of the worth of the good bookand great, that too often we fail to observe or understand theinfluence for good of a boy's recreational reading. Such books mayinfluence him for good or ill as profoundly as his play activities, ofwhich they are a vital part. The needful thing is to find storiesin which the heroes have the characteristics boys so muchadmire--unquenchable courage, immense resourcefulness, absolutefidelity, conspicuous greatness. We believe the books of EVERY BOY'SLIBRARY measurably well meet this challenge.
BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA,
