ONE PURPOSE of the Boy Scouts of America program is teaching leadership to young men.

These Scouts will decide the next six months' programs for the troop and guide its indoor and outdoor activities -- including a role in planning for a weeklong summer camp. The new leaders of the troop's Flaming Arrows and Pedros divisions were formally installed at a troop dinner Thursday at St. Christopher Episcopal Church.
