              A Scout is Trustworthy:  A Scout tells the truth. He keeps his promises. Honesty is part of his code of conduct. People can depend on him.


          "Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted in important affairs."                                                      -- Albert Einstein

          "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
