S. possession will be raised on lofty flagpoles extending parallel in two long line in this makeshift city of some 56,000 Scouts form all over the world. At the same time, section flags will be elevated over 2,400 wind swept acres now blanketed with 26,000 tents basking in the shadows of snow-tipped Pikes Peak. ...."
