The Cubmaster asks the Cub Scouts and their parents to join hands all around the room. The Cubmaster then explains that a chain is no stronger than its weakest link. The Cubmaster says: The real joy of Cub Scouting comes when complete unity exists between parents and Cub Scouts. Every boy and his parents here tonight can help Cub Scouting keep America strong. A boy is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He will sit right where you are sitting, and attend, when you are gone, to those things you think are so important.

You may adopt all the policies you please, but how they will be carried out depends on him. Even if you make leagues and treaties, he will have to manage them. He will assume control of our cities, states, and nations. He is going to move in and take over our churches, schools, universities, and corporations.

All your work is going to be judged and praised or condemned by him. Your reputation and your future are in his hands.

All your work is for him, and the fate of the nation and of humanity lies in his hands.

It is well that we pay attention to him, for now, for today, and above all, for his and our tomorrow.
