BOY SCOUTS VISIT.
PARTY OF CANTON YOUTHS WALK TO HONGKONG.
A party of Boy Scouts, belonging to the Boy Scouts' Association of the Sun Yat-sen University, Canton, have completed a walking trip to Hongkong from Canton.
They followed the Canton Kowloon Railway and walked the whole distance which they covered in four days. They camped out at night never the Railway line, visiting many villages in the course of their trip. The party consists of six members, under the leadership of their Scout Master, Cheung Yiu-yin.
During their stay in Hongkong during the weekend, the party visited several places of interest. They left Hongkong yesterday for Macao, and will walk from Macao to Chungshan, visiting the birth place of the late Dr. Sun Yat-sen.
In a chat with one of these Canton Boy Scouts, it was learned that there are about 1,000 Boy Scouts in Canton.
Members of the Kuomintang troop of Scouts also visited the Colony during the weekend, but the trip was not organised in connexion with the party mentioned above.
