A Good Deed Every Day

The Boy Scout Movement was founded in 1908 by the British Lieutenant-General R.S.S. Baden-Powell. Since that time, boys from all over the world have been attracted by Baden-Powell’s ideas.

The Boy Scouts are taught such things as reading maps, camping and first aid. To become a scout a boy must promise to do his duty to his country, to help other people at all times, and to do a good deed (поступок) every day.

Every four years a “World Jamboree” is held; it’s a meeting of thousands of scouts from many parts of the world, who camp together as one large family.

Scouts who are over 11 years of age are called “senior scouts”, those who are younger are called “wolf-cubs”.

Donald has been a wolf-cub for a few months. One day he found a letter in the street. There was a name and address on the envelope and Donald decided to return the letter.

Mrs. Miller, who had lost the letter, was very glad: “That’s very nice of you. I have been looking for this letter for a long time. Here is twenty pence for you”. And she took the money out of her purse.

“Sorry Madam”, said Donald, “I won’t take it. I’m a scout, it’s my good deed for today”.
