Personnel:  Six Cub Scouts

Equipment:  Large cardboard cutouts of ships, on which have been printed the following words:  SCHOLAR-SHIP, FELLOW-SHIP, SPORTSMAN-SHIP, WORKMAN-SHIP, STATESMAN-SHIP, and FRIEND-SHIP.

Arrangement:  The Cub Scouts hold their ships and repeat their lines (which are written on the backs of the ship cutouts.)

Cubmaster:  Tonight we would like to tell you about the six ships of Scouting.  These are ships that we must help to sail forever.

1st Cub Scout:  SCHOLAR-SHIP  This ship is very important to the Sea of Education.  On her deck stand such officers as Ambition, Determination, Intelligence, and Application.  Her flag bears the symbols of the letter "A" and the "plus sign".

2nd Cub Scout:  FELLOW-SHIP  This ship stands for good spirit, fine cooperation, and never-failing unity.  It's flag flies high - the flag of Scouting.

3rd Cub Scout:  FRIEND-SHIP  This is the most beautiful ship of all.  It is true blue and its flag is golden - since friendship itself is golden.

4th Cub Scout:  SPORTSMAN-SHIP  This ship stands for all that's fair.  It never veers from its course.  Its flag is never at half-mast.

5th Cub Scout:  WORKMAN-SHIP  This ship's every line, every part, every mast, represents the best that a person can give.  Its flag bears a laurel wreath.

6th Cub Scout:  STATESMAN-SHIP  This ship represents wise guidance, constant counsel, unselfish interest, and sincere endeavor.  Its flag is whit for purity.

Cubmaster:  And there you have six strong and sturdy ships to brave the Sea of Life.  Three cheers for the Scouting Ships.
