Boy Scouts Get Rorick’s Goat

As Morenci Troop’s new home nears completion and the boys are about to move into their new quarters, their enrollment is increased by Mr. Kirk Rorick’s gift of a two months old, Billy. Mr. Rorick announces that the gift is made unqualifiedly, without any “ifs,” or “butts.”

Besides the generous contribution of money and labor which made the new Boy Scout building possible, nearly everything necessary to equip it has been contributed.  The boys still need carpenter and wood carving tools.
