About the Cyclopedia

Girl Scouts.

There is no community of organization and administration bet. Girl Scouts and Boy* Scouts. Like scouting for boys, the Girl Scout movement has these features: 1. a pledge and a law; 2. uniforms and insignia; 3. degrees of advancement; 4. ch. troops and non-ch, troops; 5. program of indoor and outdoor activities; 6. regular organization; 7. trained leaders. Supervision is exercised by headquarters to maintain uniform prescribed standards for advancement in degrees, but no attempt is made to encroach on the duties and prerogatives of ch. and home.
