Indian Nations CouncilThe Greatest Show on Earth
Scout #4 :I am the opportunity for any boy to become most anything if he has the skill and the will to scale the heights. I am most things to everyone, and everything to most people. As a matter of fact, I guess that's what I am most...people...free people.. YOU!
Scout #5 :Let us rededicate ourselves to our duty to keep American people and our country great and free. Please rise and join in the Pledge of Allegiance.
The US Flag and a pack flag are carried to the front by the color guards. They face the audience. The lights are turned down and a Cub Scout stands in between the flags. A spotlight is turned on the setting. A good reader, reads the verse below.
He's just eight years old
He's made of the following ingredients:
Noise, energy, imagination, curiosity and hunger.
He's the "cute little boy down the street",
That "spoiled imp next door", or
"My Son,"...depending on who you are.
He's something to be kept fed, clothed, healthy, happy and out of trouble.
He's something else, too..........
He's the future we've been fighting for.
He's part of the world's most important generation.
Our generation must also win the peace.
A narrator hides behind the stage to do all the speaking. One Cub Scout dials a play phone or a large cardboard cutout phone and hold the receiver up as if for audience to hear. Seven other Cub Scouts hold up large traffic signs at appropriate times as the narrator mentions them.
The first boy comes on stage with the telephone and dials a number. He holds up receiver toward the audience.
You have just dialed a THOUGHT FOR THE DAY, brought to you courtesy of DEN___, PACK _____.
Sometimes you may have trouble in communicating with those you meet, and you may feel you have come upon a DEAD END STREET. (Cub Scout comes out and holds up sign)
But when that happens, you'd better take CAUTION you see. (Next boy comes out holding cardboard traffic signal which has colored tissue paper glued in proper place over the three lights. He holds a flashlight behind the yellow.)
Then STOP (Next boys comes out, takes traffic signal and holds flashlight behind red) and think a while. Is the trouble with him or me?
Do you always GO (Next boy shines light on green) on and on about the things that interest only you?
Or do you YIELD (Next boy comes out carrying 'Yield' sign) some time to him, so you can hear his thoughts too?
