But by watchfulness and prayers,
“Be prepared.’’


Mind you smile !
Broadest grin for hardest mile.
Whistle o’er the stony ways,
Brightest be on dullest days.
Mind you smile!


Play the game!
“Scout” must be a brother’s name.
Wide world o’er, when scout meets
Know a comrade is about—
Play the game!


Play the man!
Do a good turn when you can.
By kindness and by courtesy,
By knighthood and by chivalry,
Play the man!


Scout! Watch out!
What’s the enemy about?
Is your heart all calm and sure?
Is your motive high and pure?
Scout! Watch out!
