A launch load of children from orphanages leaving Dunedin wharf for the annual picnic given by the Otago Yachting and Motor Launch Club. Owing to the kindness of Mr P. R. Sargood the Boy and Girl Scouts were able to spend a very pleasant afternoon on his property at Newington yesterday. While the desire was to provide the boys and girls with some amusement there were other objects in view, which, Mr Sargood explained at the end of the afternoon, were to popularise and make more widely known the Boy Scout and Girl Peace Scout movement. He also pointed out the necessity for funds to carry on the movement with. A beginning has already been made in Dunedin by the establishment of a Girls' Social Centre in a building opposite the General Post Office.
