A Scout works hard to attain a certain rank. When his badge, the recognition of achievement, is presented, let's make the presentation a dignified and impressive one. He deserves this. The story is told of a little English girl. The queen was coming to her village, and she was selected to present a bouquet of flowers. She rehearsed her presentation speech for hours, but when the big moment came all she could do was thrust the flowers under the queen's nose and say, "'Ere!" We don't want Scout presentations to be like that. To a boy, his investiture as a Tenderfoot Scout, or the attainment of some higher rank, is an eagerly awaited event--a high point in his life. First impressions are important. They affect Scout spirit, growth, and tenure. We should not, therefore, let him down.
