CUB SCOUT PACK 914 has a tradition this time of year - giving thanks. No turkey or stuffing is involved. The pack's form of thanks requires gloves, trash bags and lots of energy. These boys say "thank you" by cleaning up. Pack 914 recently thanked Jeffers Hill Elementary School by cleaning the fields around the school. "Every fall, the Scouts pick up trash as a thank-you to the school that provides their meeting place," said Meg Feroli, mother of Scouts David and Danny Feroli. The boys began the tradition four years ago, when they started meeting at Jeffers Hill.

Elijah E. Cummings' South Baltimore Cub Scout pack was so poor that members shopped for uniforms at secondhand stores, made their own patches and shared a single manual. And when their den mother needed rope for an activity, she cut pieces of clothesline for the boys to share. Today, youths growing up in similarly rough city neighborhoods think joining the Scouts is too expensive and, even worse, uncool, said Cummings, now a Baltimore-area congressman. A new partnership between the Maryland NAACP and the Baltimore-area council of the Boy Scouts of America hopes to change that perception, encouraging youngsters from some of the city's toughest areas to excel in the Scouts.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. - The sharp crack of cannon fire silenced the onlookers yesterday morning, the puffs of smoke drifting dirty gray against a sky already overcast. Horses twitched nervously as down the hill muskets puffed noisily. The men in Union blue and Confederate gray lined up against each other on the damp fields, fired and reloaded and strained to hear their commanders' orders above the popping din of the guns. Yet jarring as the thundering cannon were, the blasts were carefully planned and coordinated.

CREATING A HOLIDAY atmosphere not unlike the town in the movie It's a Wonderful Life, Hampstead officials will throw the switch Friday to illuminate the town park and welcome the season. The park in front of the former Hampstead Elementary School has been transformed into a garden of lighted and moving figures, and the town Christmas tree has been placed on Main Street. At 7 p.m. Friday, the flashing lights and screaming sirens of the firetruck from Hampstead Volunteer Fire Department will signal the arrival of Mayor Christopher M. Nevin and Santa Claus, as they are driven down Main Street from the fire station to the park.
