Japanese Boy Scouts Due Here
Party Of Fifty On Fushimi Maru
Fifty Japanese Boy Scouts will pass through Hongkong on the N.Y.K. liner Fushimi Maru on July 1 on their way to a goodwill tour of Italy and Germany.
"No local arrangements have yet been made to welcome the Japanese Scouts," said an official of the Hongkong Scouts' Association this morning.
He could not say what plans, if any, might be made to receive the Japanese Scouts but the matter was being considered.
The party of scouts will leave Kobe on July 23 and after their tour of the two Fascist countries will go on to Switzerland and England.
The party will return to Japan on October 15.
