Scouting Trip
Two hundred and fifty scouts from the Clarksburg area spent a weekend on Cheat Mountain the first weekend in October. This trip was planned by Dr. Thomas E. King, formerly of Marlinton, as chairman of the Camping and Activities Committee.
After riding the Cass Scenic Railway to the Gum field they shouldered their packs and hiked four and a half miles to make camp at the old lumber town of Spruce. Here, at 4,000 feet elevation, they spent much time examining the debris and foundations of the mill and lumber town. A campfire program Saturday night and church service Sunday after the hike back to the railroad rounded out the weekend.

When I quit this mortal shore,
And mozy round this earth no more;
Don’t go and buy a big bouquet
For which you’d find it had o pay;
Don’t mope around and fret all blue,
I may be better off than you.
Don’t tell the folks I was a saint,
Or any old thing that I ain’t;
If you have jam like that to spread;
Give it to me before I’m dead.
If you have roses, bless my soul,
Just pin one in my button hole;
While I’m alive and well today,
Don’t wait until I’m gone away– Sent in by T. M. Sutton
