SCOUTS' HEALTH GENERALLY EXCELLENT
PAGEANT IN THUNDERSTORM
The chief medical officer at the Jamboree in a statement to Reuter said that in spite of most unfavourable weather, the general health of the Boy Scouts was excellent. Only two had mild cases of infectious disease since the camp opened, both contracted before their arrival. The minor medical and surgical cases treated in hospital were remarkably low.
A pageant was carried out in the arena this afternoon, in spite of a thunderstorm and torrential rain.- Reuter.
