Scoutcraft - Good Points

I had the pleasure, during the past week, in my inspections, of coming across three boys in different centres who were pointed out to me as having been incorrigible young blackguards and hooligans until they came under the influence of Scouting. Their respective Scoutmasters had, in each case, found out the good points which underlay the bad ones in them, and having seized upon these had put the boys on to jobs which suited their peculiar temperaments ; and there are now these three, fine, hulking lads, each of them doing splendid work entirely transformed in character from their old selves. It was worth the trouble of having organised the Troops just to have had these single successes.
