   Over one hundred boy scouts from six groups of the Hong Kong Boy Scouts Association participated in a rally held on Saturday afternoon at the Praya East Reclamation, near Fleming Road.
   After the Commissioner (the Rev. G.T.Waldegrave), in company with Mr. Gordon (Assistant Commissioner for Boy Scouts at Shanghai) had inspected the company, the Scouts broke off and demonstrated branches of work in Scout craft, including fire lighting, camp site preparation and other items. Mr. C.Champkin (Assistant Commissioner), the Rev. E.A.Armstrong (District Commissioner, Kowloon) and Lieut. C.G.H.Christian (Assistant Commissioner) together with a number of Rover Scouts, were witnesses of the very clever exhibition.
   The party later gathered at the Seamen's Institute, where tea was served and entertainments, depicting phases of Scout life, were given by each of the six groups.
   Mr. Gordon gave an interesting speech regarding the Scout movement in Shanghai, and mentioned that all the troops, which were of many nationalities, worked in close harmony with each other. He expressed great pleasure with what he had seen of the local movement.
   The Commissioner also addressed the Scouts and gave an outline of future activities in the training camp at Saiwan.
   The singing of the National Anthem by the gathering brought an enjoyable afternoon to a close.
   The competing groups were:- Sea Scouts, 2nd H.K. (St. Andrew's), 5th H.K. (Roving Fifth), 6th H.K., 20th H.K. and the 28th H.K. Group.
