Photograph byClifton Adams TALL TALES AMONG THE TALL TIMBERS Like Indians at a powwow, Scouts sit in rapt silence as the story-teller weaves his spell. One night a tale of adventure istold, the next ayarn ofthesea or aghost thriller, and the third night a local legend, all accompanied by solemn ceremonies. No part of camp life is appreciated more than the council fire under the stars. "Call to Quarters" and "Taps" come all too soon.
