THE ORIOLE 79 Historical Sketch of Scouting in Pulaski “One-two-three-four, one-two-three-four, left-left-left, troop right, march. " O, glory, see those Pulaski Scouts, clad in khaki, faces tanned and smiling, as erect in carriage and elastic in step, they file past with beating drums and flying colors. A long time that, for they began coming ten years ago and the end of the column is not yet in sight. In the summer of 1912, two years after the National Boy Fcout movement was launched, Mr. Sam Hurst, then a resi- dent ot Pulaski, invited all boys of scout age in the town to meet with him for the purpose of forming a local troop. Shortly afterwards a full troop of four patrols was duly organized and chartered. These first Scouts of Pulaski went on many hikes and did some camping; however, within a year interest began to wane and ere another twelve months elapsed the organiza- tion had practically disintegrated. Nevertheless a start had been made; good seed had been sown; a splendid boys’ program had been introduced to the community. Troop No. 2 was chartered, in October, 1914, with Mr. Hensel Eckman as Scoutmaster. This body of Scouts was purposely limited by the leader to two patrols only, so that in- tensive work might be done. In the beginning, this was a church troop, originating in the Presbyterian Church, constitu- ted by boys of that congrega tion, and meeting regularly in their house of worship.

Mr. Eckman continued as Scoutmaster of this troop until September 15, 1918, at which time he changed his place of resi- dence to New York City. During this period these Scouts did much hiking, went on a troop camping trip each summer (the favorite site being Foster Falls), and made commendable pro- gress in scoutcraft. While during this time no merit badges were awarded, a few of the boys became first-class Scouts. In the meantime, although Troop No. 2 had absorbed much of the material of Troop No. 1, which disbanded before the or- ganization of No. 2, it became evident in the spring of 1917 that there was an urgent need for two troops in the community. Upon being approached concerning the matter, Mr. Richard Ham consented to form Troop No 3. Fifteen candidates were
