Washington DC USA Date:1925 Duration:3 min 18 sec Sound:NO SOUND
American Boy Scouts stage a skit to educate fellow Boy Scouts of America about prevention of forest fires. Irresponsible activity leading to forest fire is shown in the dramatized skit, staged on a field with a large group of Boy Scouts seated and watching (possibly some kind of Jamboree). The scouts demonstrate the hazard of a carelessly tossed cigarette. They also show an unattended fire spreading and consuming a tree completely. Sign boards read 'The Trial', and 'Guilty', as the offenders are "Sentenced to Be Educated' (sentencing done by Walter Irving McCoy, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia). Scouts take part in a Tug of War game. Sign reads 'Forest Demon Burned' and the "demon" figure in fabric is set on fire and hoisted into the air. Boy Scouts are seen on the Washington Monument grounds as they take an oath together. Boy Scout plays a trumpet. Sign board on the trumpet reads 'Fight Forest Fire'.
