To enjoy the Great Outdoors as one of the gifts of life
To greet the dawn with a smile and the mess call with a laugh
To spread sunshine and good cheer, just for the fun of it
To play every game on the level, win modestly, lose gracefully, and have a kind word for the opposing side
To speak the truth and to think the truth
To cooperate with other campers and find pleasure in lending a helping hand
To try to see the other fellow’s side of the question and strive for harmony
To be kind, because manliness requires kindness
To be strong, because self-reliance is born of strength
To be careful, because recklessness is the admission of unwise judgment
To be too generous to bear a grudge and too good natured to pick flaws in others
To aim for self improvement
To be a “regular fellow,” a pal to other campers, a friend in manner and deed, a booster rather than a knocker, an optimist rather than a pessimist, and a gentleman under all conditions and circumstances
Dr. Don C. Broadbridge  1930           003
