• The Hon. William P. Clements, Jr. Governor of Texas State Capitol Austin, Texas 78711 Dear Bill: A program for Cub Soo"routs, and Explorers National Office—Boy Scouts of America North Brunswick, New Jersey 08902 Telephone: 201 249-6000 TWX 710-480-6262 ec You really gave all of us a thrill and a lift in your agreement to host a dinner to spearhead the leadership to obtain $10,250,000 for the national headquarters of the Boy Scouts of America. It is exceptional that you would do it with all of your pressing priorities--but I find it to be typical of your vigor and unusual commitment to Scouting. I believe it will be a very significant achievement that will help build the climate and impetus to help us move forward. It is an opportunity to dramatize the concern that people in our area have for citizenship training for our young people. We could find no one better suited to mobilize the attention and response needed. You are greatly appreciated! I will be following up with your staff to select the best date and get the suggested names to you for your review and approval. Best regards. Sincerely, L. Tarr Chief Scout Executive hy cc: Downing B. Jenks John D. Murchison 1APY ‘449vsfte r ?)1444A. L46""b. itjt ; 4. ii:d4° A.43 414). ertr04441 4tir (t.
