First Edition - 1967-1986:

Edition Notes: The uncredited cover art showed off the new outdoor emphasis for Webelos Scouts. 300 pages eventually dropping to 284. Size 5 3/8” x 8”. Illustrations were two color sketches in various colors with black.

Historical Notes: Lion rank disappeared in 1967 to make way for a newly expanded Webelos program. Activity pins foreshadowed Boy Scout merit badges and the colors of the neckerchief hinted at the boy's connection with the greater world of Scouting (Explorer green, Cub gold, Scout red).

Quote: You can earn money for your uniform by making and selling handicraft articles, weeding gardens, shoveling snow, mowing lawns, cleaning windows, taking care of a furnace, removing ashes, washing cars, washing dogs, taking care of pets while owners are away, baby-sitting, or running errands. The distinctive parts of your Webelos Scout uniform tell everyone that you are an older Cub Scout, a member of the Webelos den, and that you expect to become a Boy Scout when you graduate from the pack.
