    The February 1979 issue of Boys' Life featured the art of Norman Rockwell. On the cover is his Painting Our Heritage. Apparently the cub scout is reading a history book which has conjured up the spirit of George Washington. The Boy Scout has the Den Chief Cord thus he would be guiding the cub scouts. It is a very fine painting. I believe it was originally done in the late 1940s. It was on the February 1950 Boys' Life cover. I was looking for a good print of this painting and this fit my size and vintage requirement. It is slightly cropped (not by me).
    But it kind of looks like to me a terrified cub scout being guarded by a somewhat terrified boy scout who is trying not to show it. So on with Action Figure Theater!
    Photo #2, perhaps I should have added the horse.
    Photo #3 the ghost of George Washington has run amok! Scouts flee is fear or attempt to stop him with the scout salute.
    Photo #4. It turned out to be the caretaker in disguise. He would have gotten away with it if not for those meddling scouts.

      It's always the caretaker. What's with these guys?

      Thank you very much Toyrebel. I think the caretaker job attracts people who like to dress as ghosts and various monsters.
