A great need for those in Scouting continuously to speak about this great Movement due to the considerable lack of knowledge of the aims and intentions. The purpose and endeavours of Scouting. The very great part that Scouting has to play in conjunction with the church, the home and the school, in the development of young Canadians. How Scouting is a "way of life." Bringing together different nationalities under one Scouting Camp. Ways in which Scouting can overcome some of Canada's traditional geographical problems. Scouting overcoming traditional "fences" which have been erected over the years between various regions, denominations and races. A similar phenomenon in the armed forces, with illustrative example from the speaker's experience. Scouting endeavouring to guide boys to take their place in "one atomic world."
