G,I1 would draw the attention of "Sacerdos" to the fact that in "Policy Organisation and Rules" of the Boy Scouts Association it is clearly stated: "Where it is not permissible under a rule of the religion of any Scout to attend religious observances other than those of his own form or religion, the Scouters of the Group must see that such a rule is strictly observed while the Scout is under their control."
If "Sacerdos" had written to the Association feel sure the instance to which he referred would have been closely investigated. If parents whose boys wish to become Scouts desire to fully safeguard them against attendance at non-Catholic services, they could do no better than ask their parish priest where the nearest Scoutgroup sponsored by the Catholic Church is, and. if practicable, get their boy to join it. More priests might then consider the desirability of having such a group within their own parishes. C. .1. Moore Group Scoutmaster,
