161 Has Troop Paper.An interesting Troop paper called the Scout Courier is issued monthly by Troop 161. The editor in chief is Noah Pines, and associate editors, Sam Shapiro and Will Pankln. Some excerpts follow:
…Ned Pines has organized the Rattlesnake Patrol. This is the third patrol, leaving only another patrol to be filled to complete the troop roster. Who is going to found the next patrol?
…Rattlesnake—Ned Pines, patrol leader; A. Wassenberg, assistant patrol leader.
…Troop 161 meets at the Borough Park Y.M.H.A., 14th ave. and 60th st.The Eagle, November 23, 1919, named Pines’s father and older brother as members of Troop 161. Pines’s future as a publisher was foretold in the Eagle, April 11, 1920, below:
In another publishing venture, Pines “advertised” in the Eagle’s Junior Eagle Exchange on May 2 and 9, 1920: “WANTED—Amateur papers for a collection. Write Ned Pines, 1430 50th st., Brooklyn, N.Y.”Form Company.At the last meeting of the board of editors of the Scout Courier, official organ of Troop 161, it was decided to form an association to be called the Scout Courier Printing and Publishing company. The purpose of this company is to print and publish Scout magazines. Any troop desiring its paper printed should address Ned Pines, editor, at 1430 50th st.
Scout Myer Beckman has been appointed senior patrol leader. Scout Albert Kaplan, assistant senior patrol leader. Former Senior Patrol Leader Sydney Cantor has resigned, but is still staying with the troop. Veteran Scout Ned Pines has been made Assistant Scoutmaster.

Preparations for the biggest ball in the history of the Junior Federation of the Brooklyn Federation of Jewish Charities are being made this year, the committee in charge announced yesterday.
The ball will be held at the Hotel Plaza on Saturday night, Feb. 17, and the proceeds will be added to the funds raised by the junior group to meet its quota in the Spring campaing [sic] to be conducted by the Federation to take care of the budgetary allotments to the 25 affiliated societies.
This year's event will be the fifth annual ball and the first time it has been held outside Brooklyn. Several thousand tickets have been sent out and there has already been reported considerable response.
Among those giving a large proportion of their time to the arrangements are Ned L. Pines, chairman; Miss Blanche Posner, Miss Anita Hirschhorn, Miss Charlotte Seplowitz and Miss Josephine Bachrach.
…Sangor had entered publishing with Cinema Comics, which was incorporated in September 1939….It also packaged comic books for other publishers, starting with Nedor Publishing Company. Nedor was owned by Ned L. Pines, who had married Jacquelyn Sangor….It was probably that family connection that brought Sangor into publishing in the first place (and provided him with the necessary financing). Pines was a leading publisher of pulp fiction….Pines needed to take only a short step to enter the comic-book business.
Sangor testified in 1943 that Pines called him in July or August 1941—that is, around the time that Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Comics made its debut —“and told me that he would like…to get a magazine with animals in the order of the Fairy Tales, talking animals and we discussed it, and I started on it about that time. Early in 1942 Sangor delivered the contents of the first Nedor talking-animal comic book, Coo Coo Comics no. 1, for publication in August….
