First and most important, I would like to extend my appreciation to the members of the Scout Movement for their eager participation, co-operation, and, most of all, trust. Thank you all for making me welcome in your troops and for all that I learned from you. I want to thank especially Scouter Ted Claxton for ideas and other assistance. I want to thank my faculty advisor, Prof. Lambert, for patience during this long project and for providing just the right amount of help. Finally, I want to extend my appreciation to Isaac for proofreading and to Maria for helping me with my this, my first LATEXproject.
