(The following is an excerpt from the George Washington Council annual report for 1938-1939. The Trenton Times carried a weekly scouting column called the "Scouting Trail." This is mentioned in the article about Trail of the Air, the weekly scouting radio program.)

Press Activities
George Washington Council

Troop Scribes are charged with the duty of reporting the news of their troops, and these items are used by Senior scribes in the Council Press Club, meeting twice weekly for preparation of the weekly scout section carried in the Trenton Times Advertiser. The columns of this paper have carried the Scout Trail for nine years without a break, and the experience available in this department is of considerable value.
