This chapter recounts Jim Still’s adolescent and high school experiences. As World War I ended, the family moved from the country to town and young Still began playing baseball and visiting the library. He became actively involved in the recently formed Chattahoochee Valley Boy Scout program, eventually becoming an Eagle scout. He wrote a diary, newspaper reports, songs and poems about his scouting experiences. As high school ended he looked forward to college in some place other than Alabama.
