Remember the Scouts? Remember Howard McVey?

Does anyone remember "cranes and crows"? That was the cry of Howard McVey in the white building up the road from the mansion on the mountains where the Boy scouts met and Mr. Howard McVey was our scout master. Was that great, great fun or what? Howard would yell "cranes" and the cranes would come after the crows, the crows would flee back across the line and then Howard would yell "crows" and the crows would peruse the cranes. Howard, also took us on many wonderful camping trips, and we had some great times on those excursions. Howard, was a great scout master, and we all really liked Jean who was the scout masters wife. Growing up in Alderson was one exciting experience.
