Cover Illustration: The Crothersville, Jackson County, Indiana Girl Scout Troop at a homecoming picnic in Henryville, Clark County in August, 1912. According to the identification on the picture, "The Henryville trip was a little historic excursion and missionary tour in Scout work. . . . The Day closed with a Scout Entertainment at the High School by the Brownstown and Crothersville Scouts." According to the Brownstown Banner, July 10, 1912, these two troops--called Red Cross Scouts--met in Crothersville on July 7 with the newly organized Red Cross Crusaders, "for the young people not in Scout work."
