BIOGRAPHICAL ARTHUR BASEY VANLANDINGHAM Grand Master, 1965-1966 The Vanlandingham name is among the first recorded in the annals of Missouri history as the state was settled. The forbears of Arthur Basey Vanlandingham firmly implanted the name as they tilled the soil when the State was young. It may well have been the rich farm lands of Central Missouri that first attracted these early settlers. Certainly, this interest in farming and the love of rural life has continued through several generations, and persists today as strongly as ever. In the words of our Most Worshipful Grand Master (1965路1966), "Six generations of us have lived and died within a threemile radius of my home." Basey was born in Boone County, March 30, 1920, the son of Forrest Albert and Marthena Wade Vanlandingham. He was educated in the rural and public schools of Boone County and Columbia, Missouri. He also attended the University of Missouri at Columbia, Missouri. One of the most important events of his life occurred on December 31, 1939, when he was united in marriage with Miss Lorane Glascock. The Glascock family home was in Boone County, near the town of Ashland. To this union were born three fine children: A. Basey, II, February 19, 1943; Forrest Barry, born November 13, 1945; and Becky Lynn, born August 1, 1953. A. Basey, II was married July 29, 1961, to Miss Geraldine Crum. They are the proud parents of two boys, Jeffery Doss and A. Basey, III. Forrest Barry and Miss Sandra Newton of Fayette were married December 31, 1965. Both A. Basey, II and Forrest Barry are associated with their father in the Central Finance Company. Miss ~ecky Lynn attends the public schools in Columbia and resides at home. Each succeeding generation appears to have expanded the overall interests of the family. In addition to the land he owns and supervises in Boone County, Basey devotes considerable time and attention to banking, finance como. panies and politics. He carries on the tradition of his ancestors by an occasional visit to the farm to ride a tractor or inspect livestock. So successful has he been in the latter endeavor that in 1956 he received the coveted Balanced Farming Award in Boone County. The ability of Grand Master Vanlandingham to engage successfully in the business world is demonstrated by his association with the Exchange Bank of New Franklin, of which he is Chairman of the Board. He is President of the Central Finance Company, Inc., with headquarters in Columbia and branch offices in Fayette and California. Success in business has undoubtedly contributed to our Grand Master's advancement in other fields. The Vanlandinghams are members of the Christian Church and are Democrats in politics. At the University of Missouri Brother Vanlandingham became a member of the Acacia Social Fraternity. He is also a member of the State Historical Society of Missouri, Forest Hills Country Club, Rotary International, and the Elks. He lists his hobbies as traveling and hunting.

BIOGRAPHICAL

In 1956 our Grand Master's interest in the affairs of government induced him to offer himself as a candidate for public office, and was accordingly' elected to the Missouri House of Representatives from Boone County. During this term in the State Legislature he so vigorously conducted himself that he was named to receive the St. Louis Globe-Democrat Award for Meritorious Service as the most outstanding freshman representative in the 69th General Assembly. In 1958 he was re-elected to the Missouri House of Representatives, and was so highly respected by his colleagues that he was made Speaker Pro Tern in the 70th General Assembly. These two terms proved to be only an introduction to the Missouri Legislature. After serving two full terms as a Representative from Boone County, Grand Master Vanlandingham decided to run for a seat in the upper body of the Missouri Legislature. Accordingly, in 1960 he was elected as Senator from the 19th district. It was during this administration that he was named a member of President Kennedy's Advisory Board of Natural Resources. In 1964 Senator Vanlandingham was re-elected to a second four-year term as Senator from the 19th district, a position he now occupies. He has served on various committees including Appropriations, Public Health and Welfare, Banks and Banking and Financial Institutions, Correctional Institutions, Employment Security and Economics and Major Expenditures. Probably the committee that interests him most is one that he serves as chairman, the Senate Committee on Agriculture. It is interesting to observe that he was elected to state office the first three times without opposition from either party. The Grand Lodge of Missouri benefitted greatly by the leadership of M. Wor. Brother Vanlandingham. His unusually broad experience in the affairs of State, as well as service in various Masonic offices in both York and Scottish Rites, eminently qualified him as a leader of the craft. His genuine interest in his brethren, manifested by an untiring willingness to hear complete details of all problems however large or small, has carved for him a place forever in the hearts of his brethren. During his year he was in constant demand as a speaker at Masonic functions within and without his own jurisdiction. His many close associates arc convinced that Freemasonry in Missouri profited greatly because he found time in a busy life to serve as Grand Master of Masons in the State of Missouri. MASONIC RECORD

INTRODUCTION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF MASONIC HOME

R.W. Bro. Russell E. Murray introduced the members of the Masonic Home Board. MESSAGES

The Grand Secretary read a telegram from R.W. Bro. W. Larrance Roe, District Deputy Grand Master, expressing his regret at being unable to attend this session of the Grand Lodge. Messages of greeting and good wishes were received from the Grand Lodge of the state of Israel; from the Grand Lodge of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and from the Masonic Service Association of the United States. ANNOUNCEMENTS

R.W. Bro. William H. Chapman announced that busses would be provided for the visit to the Masonic Home of Missouri this afternoon. The Missouri Lodge of Research extended an invitation to all the brethren to attend the business meeting of the Missouri Lodge of Research this afternoon at 4 o'clock, at the Masonic Temple; also to attend the Breakfast tomorrow morning at the Sheraton-Jefferson Hotel at 7: 15 o'clock. There will be a photograph taken of those in attendance at Grand Lodge, at noon. Luncheon will be served in the Dining Room of the Scottish Rite Cathedral at noon, at a cost of $1.25 per person. Dinner will be served at 6:30 this evening in the Dining Room of the Scottish Rite Cathedral, followed by a splendid program for the delegates and their ladies in the auditorium at 8:00 o'clock.


Address of the Grand Master M.W. Bro. A. Basey Vanlandingham, Grand Master, read his address as Grand Master.

To the Most Worshipful Gmnd Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Missouri: BRETHREN: The time has now arrived for me, as your Grand Master, to follow the constitutional provision which requires me to give you an account of my stewardship and make such recommendations as I feel necessary. And for you, as the representative or proxy of your Lodge, to listen whether it suits you or not. I can assure you that it is probably more difficult for me than it is for you; therefore, I promise that it will be given in as short a time as possible, unless you insist that each detail be read. It is with mixed emotions that I stand here this morning. Mixed, because it is with heartfelt gratitude that I reflect the Supreme Architect of the Universe has allowed me the pleasant privilege of serving you as your Grand Master this past year; but with sincere regret that I find I have been unable to visit as many Lodges as had been my expectation, or to complete some of the work that I felt should be done to further Freemasonry in the great jurisdiction of Missouri. Having been given the opportunity to travel this state from east to west and north to south, it has been my pleasure to meet many thousands of the Brethren and their families; and it is my humble hope that I have, in some way, contributed to their being exceedingly proud of the Masonic Fraternity and the motives and teachings found therein. Also, I strongly feel that I have made many lasting friendships during the past year that would not have otherwise been possible; and for this, I am deeply grateful. Even though I may never make a million dollars, I like to feel that, in our great organization, I am on my way to having a million friends. I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to thank all of the Brethren with whom I have been associated during the past twenty-five years, who have made this service, which I have gladly rendered, possible. To them, I express my deep and sincere appreciation. STATE OF THE CRAFT Even though the statistics will show the Masonic Fraternity and its appendant groups to be in a declining cycle, it is my firm belief that this cycle is at an end and we are, at this point, ready to begin an upswing. I believe this because, nearly without exception, I have been met with gratifying enthusiasm throughout the state. This extends from the meeting with the District Deputy Grand Masters and the District Deputy Grand Lecturers in Jefferson City to the Grand Lodge meeting here in St. Louis. The meeting of the Deputies in Jefferson City was attended almost one hundred per cent by those who were appointed and who, from all reports, have done an excellent job of carrying out their duties. Certainly, "my hat is off" to them.

It seems that this Annual Communication ,,,ill show an unusually good attendance, and for this I am thankful. There are some areas in the state where there are rough spots; but those are few, and I am sure they will be worked out. In due time, the Lodges concerned will become a credit to our Fraternity. The Grand Lodge Officers are well aware of the problems of some of the Lodges in smaller towns and villages, as well as those in the larger cities, and I am sure I speak for them when I say that we are always ready to help and assist, even though somewhat reluctant to step in uninvited. Further, I do feel that I perceive a unity within the Craft, particularly in the appendant bodies. This is very reassuring because of the fact that we must work together for the improvement and growth of all. With all these things in mind, I am very optimistic about the future of Freemasonry in Missouri.

APPOINTMENTS Under a Resolution that was adopted by the Grand Lodge in 1920, I felt it was necessary to appoint a special committee which I named the Public Schools Committee. This Resolution may be found in the 1920 proceedings on page 187 and reads as follows: Resolved, The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri, in Annual Communication declares: It regards the free public school as the chief bulwark of the state and nation, to be kept under the sole dominion and direction of the State, and so far as the efforts of Freemasonry in Missouri are concerned, its voice, vote and influence will at all times be excrted in keeping it so. It regards any individual or other influence, that seeks to destroy or weaken the free public school system as now operated in this country, as the enemy of our cherished American institutions. It urges that all teachcrs in our frce public schools, shall be those who are in perfect sympathy with them. It demands that the highest type of manhood and womanhood may be securcd as teachers in our free public schools, that they be paid generously, and be required to realize that loyal, efficient scrvice will be expected at their hands.

To this committee I named the following: Harry C. Avery, St. Louis Herman Huelster, Joplin Robert Arnold, Kansas City Raymond Usher, Hannibal Roy McGhee, Piedmont Marvin P. Blackmore, Columbia Bruce H. Hunt, Kirksville

The committee has been working during the past year, and you will hear its report later in the meeting. SPECIAL EVENTS Among the several outstanding events of the year, the one of great importance, to me at least, was the raising to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason of my son, A. Basey Vanlandingham, II. This degree was conferred

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

路1966

at Columbia, Missouri, in a fine Ritualistic manner by the several officers of the Grand Lodge working in their respective stations. R.W. Brother Russell Murray worked in my place in the Second Section in a very commendable manner. Following the degree work, a Boone County ham dinner was served by members of Acacia Lodge No. 602. I shall always remember my tour through Northwest Missouri, led by R.W. Brother Robert G. Powell, where I met a great number of Masons and their families at the centennial celebration of Agency Lodge No. 10, Western Star No. 15 and Lincoln Lodge No. 138. Moila Shrine Temple and the Divan of this Temple should be and are hereby commended for participating in practically all of the local events occurring in the northwest area. The most outstanding Masonic event of the past year, which created statewide interest and participation in the Fraternity, was the York Rite Class held in Jefferson City in April of this year in honor of Missouri's Governor, Warren Eastman Hearnes. This was the largest known class ever held in the United States, and the Masonic Fraternity is deeply indebted to Governor Hearnes for giving so freely of his time to make this event possible. CORNERSTONES On a number of occasions I had the pleasure of convening the Grand Lodge for the purpose of laying cornerstones of public or Masonic buildings. These occasions, in my opinion, are very good for the Fraternity and should be encouraged in every community. There were four of these ceremonies held in the City of Kirksville during the year. One was of great interest to me as two stones were used at the same time in the same ceremony. Brother Walter Ryle, President of Kirksville State Teachers College, is to be congratulated on his thoughtfulness in inviting the Grand Lodge to participate in ceremonies of this kind. The remainder of the ceremonies are reported elsewhere in this report. HEALING It was only necessary for me to issue two orders of healing during the past year, and this was through a misunderstanding of Lodges in sister jurisdictions.

I

Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446, through proper channels, requested Eola Lodge No. 207 of Orlando, Florida, to instruct and examine Entered Apprentice Louis M. Moeck on the "first degree" after which it would be necessary for him to petition to receive the remaining degrees. Eola Lodge No. 207 instructed, examined and conferred the remaining degrees without informing Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446 until Mr. Moeck had received said degrees. Knowing of no change in the character of Louis M. Moeck since he was first elected, I declared him healed and a member of Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446 in good standing.

Belle Lodge No. 373 of Missouri requested Olney Lodge No. 140 of Illinois to confer the three degrees on Melvin B. Smith, and this was done accordingly under Illinois law. Illinois law permits the conferring of degrees in less than four weeks. Brother Smith received his third degree eleven days after his second which was legal under Illinois law and procedure. It was not the fault of Brother Smith, so I therefore declared him healed and a Master Mason in good standing. DECISIONS Thanks to the excellent job done on the revision of our By-Laws. A few years ago there were relatively few decisions that involved a point of Masonic Law not already decided. Most of the questions posed during the last year could have been cleared up by a careful study of said By-Laws and the Annotations. However, it seemed to me on the following decisions the law may not have been clear, and I therefore call them to your attention. I

The question was raised as to how many letters a secretary must write to the Lodges having concurrent jurisdiction in and around Kansas City to receive a waiver on a petitioner who lives in that territory when the Lodge requesting the waiver is outside of that territory. I ruled that it would be necessary to write a letter to the Lodge whose hall is nearest the place where the petitioner lives; or if two or more Lodges met in that hall, only the consent of the oldest Lodge is required. II

The question was raised as to whether a Brother who had been suspended for a number of years could pay his dues for the years missed and be eligible to receive a fifty-year pin. I ruled that the back dues could not be paid for the years under suspension in order to make him eligible to receive said pin.

III The question was raised as to whether a custodian of a Lodge need be a member of the Lodge or a resident of the town where he was employed as a custodian of said Lodge. I ruled that there was nothing to prevent the Lodge hiring whom they pleased for a custodian. IV A Brother requested that his petItIon for affiliation be withdrawn after being presented and a committee appointed. I rtiled that a petition for affiliation should be treated as a petition for the degrees and therefore could not be withdrawn.

v The question was raised as to whether a proficiency examination given at a special qommunication called for the purpose of conferring the First Degree was legal and was ruled on in the following manner: Section 7.070 of the Grand Lodge By-Laws states that Degrees may be conferred, candidates examined, and ceremonial observances conducted, so therefore the proficiency examination was legal. ESTATES The Roy F. Newman estate which was probated in Randolph County, Missouri, has been closed by our attorneys, Worshipful Brother Richard J. Chamier and M.W. Brother Martin B. Dickinson. The first partial distribution of this estate in the amount of $37,875.00 was received on September 23, 1965, and the final distribution in the amount of $21,960.07 was received on July 21, 1966, for a total received of $59,835.07. After attorneys fees of $8,975.25 and expenses of $18.61, the Grand Lodge received a net of $50,841.21. With reference to a bequest under the will of Brother Spencer 1. Groff of an interest in real estate located in Franklin County, Missouri, upon which there is administration pending in the Probate Court at Union, Missouri, the Grand Lodge has been sued as a party defendant in the case of Louis B. Eckelkamp and others, against Thomas W. Nelson and others, for the partition of this property. While the Grand Lodge has been sued as "Order of the Masonic Lodge of Missouri," which is the way they are mentioned in the will of Brothe~ Groff, an answer has been filed in behalf of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri by Right Worshipful Brother Harry' Gershenson, Chairman of the Jurisprudence Committee. This was done at my request and to protect the interests of the Grand Lodge. I would suggest that the incoming Grand Master keep in touch with this case for future developments. GRAND MASTER'S BREAKFAST Two Annual Grand Master's Breakfasts were held during the past year, the first at Louisiana and the second at St. Louis. Perseverance Lodge No. 92 held its annual Breakfast in Louisiana on November 13, 1965. The Lodge was opened at 4 o'clock in the morning. At this time your Grand Master was called on to make a few remarks, after which a bountiful breakfast was served. Surprisingly, there was a goodly number of early rising Brethren who were willing to get out of bed before the "dawn's early light," and attend this meeting. A freewill offering was taken after the meal, which resulted in a contribution to the Masonic Home in the amount of $403.53. The second breakfast, held in St. Louis on Sunday, May 1, 1966, was also a well attended affair with 1,419 Brethren present there to hear an inspiring talk by M.W. Brother Chester Hodges of Ohio. This meeting is always a well organized function-thanks to a committee that works efficiently at making it a success. The members of this Breakfast Committee were M.W. Brother Richard O. Rumer, chairman, M.W. Brother

Robert L. Aronson, R.W. Brother Alfred M. Frager and R.W. Brother Harry C. Ploetze. Special religious services were held before the breakfast by St. Marcus Evangelical (U.C. of C.) Church, Temple Shaare Emeth and St. John's Methodist Church. A special thanks is extended to St. John'S Methodist Church for contributing the morning offering of $378.20 to the Masonic Home. FOREIGN JURISDICTIONS At the invitation of M.W. Brother Earnest Neath, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Montana, my wife, Lorane, daughter, Becky, and I visited the centennial meeting of the Grand Lodge of Montana. A very interesting three-day meeting was held there, highlighted by a symbolic meeting on a nearby mountain where the first known Lodge meeting in Montana was held. As a guest of Ararat, MoiIa and Abou Ben Adhem Shrine Temples, I attended the Imperial Session of the Shrine at San Francisco; and to these three Temples, I say that I am now and shall be forever grateful and indebted. My wife and daughter join me in expressing our appreciation. This was a most spectacular event because of the many uniformed units of the Shrine from all sections of North America. I was pleased to have been furnished with an automobile with my name and state printed on the side; and during the parade, I heard many inquiries, such as, "how's Harry," showing that many people remember our own beloved Past Grand Master and former President, M.W. Brother Harry S Truman. It was not my privilege to visit foreign jurisdictions other than the ones mentioned above, however, I was very ably represented by other Grand Officers in Grand Jurisdictions from time to time. DEATHS This section will be gone into at length a little later in the proceedings, but I do wish to mention at this time that we were saddened by the loss of three Past Grand Masters, M.W. Brother Harold L. Reader, M.W. Brother Harry F. Sunderland and M.W. Brother Henry C. Chiles, as well as one of our District Deputy Grand Masters, R.W. Brother Burl Rickman. To the families of these good Brethren I have, on behalf of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, extended our heartfelt sympathy. THE GRAND MASTER'S CALENDAR It has been my pleasure to make many Lodge visits this year, all of which have been very nice and rewarding occasions. However, I was disappointed that I could not make more, but was unable to do so because of the limited time available as Grand Master and two special sessions of the General Assembly of Missouri. The following is a detailed list of the visits made and the dates of same: 1965

October 2-New Franklin: Reception and dinner at my home Lodge attended by approximately 600 persons from aU sections of the state.

CONFERENCE OF GRAND MASTERS OF MASONS IN NORTH AMERICA It was my privilege to attend this conference along with M.W. Brother Bruce H. Hunt, R.W. Brother Elmer Wagner, R.W. Brother Freelon K. Hadley and W. Brother John B. Vrooman. The conference was held in Washington, D. C., the last week in February in commemoration of the birthday of the most famous Freemason of all, W. Brother George Washington. It was my pleasure to serve on the committee that visited his tomb at Mount Vernon on February 22 to place a wreath within the tomb honoring his memory on the date of his birth. The meeting was well attended by the Grand Masters of North America, and it is my opinion that a great deal of valuable information was obtained by those present. I would certainly recommend that my successors in office make every effort to attend this conference. TRIAL COMMISSIONS It seems that some of the Brethren are always prone to err during a Masonic year, and it is the duty of the Grand Master to appoint competent persons to hear the grievances and pronounce judgment on same. There were four such commissions appointed during the past year and the Brethren appointed did serve and those, who have reported, have done an excellent job. •

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

To those persons I am deeply indebted, and I wish, at this time, to express my gratitude and that of the Grand Lodge. The following persons served on Trial Commissions: Clayton Lodge No. 601 vs. Earsel William Pollard Richard O. Rumer Roy H. Sander Albert H. Van Gels Westport Lodge No. 340 vs. Grant A. Murry Clovis Collier William J. Hill W. Hugh McLaughlin Westport Lodge No. 340 vs. Robert H. Reid Clovis Collier William J. Hill W. Hugh McLaughlin Crescent Hill Lodge No. 368 vs. William Edward Gier Martin B. Dickinson Charles C. Raymond John Weiss

Some of the commissions are still in the process of hearing the cases and, I am sure, will report to the incoming Grand Master. RECOMMENDATIONS During my year as Grand Master, many recommendations have been suggested to me for the good of the Order. However, I am going to present for your consideration only three at this time. After a great deal of discussion at the Conference of District Deputy Grand Masters and District Deputy Grand Lecturers held at Jefferson City last fall, it was felt that the Annual Communication would be better attended if held on Monday and Tuesday instead of Tuesday and Wednesday. I therefore recommend that the Annual Communication be held on the last Monday and Tuesday of September each year. As many of you know, I have served eight years on the Board of your Masonic Home. I have had the opportunity to be rather close to the operation of this Home, and I feel that, in the foreseeable future, more money is going to be needed to keep it a place where you would wish to have your family, friends and Brothers spend their sunset years. In preparing the Budget for the fiscal year July 1, 1966-1967 we finally arrived at the amount of $844,220.00. This amount is admittedly conservative and it may prove to be inadequate. In estimating the income for the fiscal year, we assumed that the Grand Lodge per capita for the Home would amount to $257,500.00. Actual income from per capita for fiscal 1965-1966 amounted to $260,126.26. Our estimate for 1966-1967 will be close because we have received from the Grand Secretary $250,000.00 thus far and there will be some more to come. On the basis of the Budget of $844,220.00 and income of $257,500.00 the per capita tax this year will produce only 30.5% of our operating funds. Rising costs of goods and services has resulted in increased budgets every year and this will, in all probability, continue. Furthermore, the Home is op-

erating at capacity, as far as adults are concerned, and we have a waltmg list of 17 at the present time. I do not think this will change for the better, but will more than likely get worse. If a per capita tax increase is proposed at the 1966 Communication of the Grand Lodge, it will have to layover until 1967 and, if approved then, it will not become effective until 1968 dues are paid. Thus, the earliest we could realize any increased income from a per capita tax would be for 1968-1969 Budget. The Planning Committee and the Board are considering the possible need to expand the facilities of the Home to provide for more adult guests. I have not received the Auditor's Report but the average per capita costs for the 1964-1965 fiscal year was $1,950.26. Assuming an average cost of $2,000.00, if 100 additional guests are provided for we would need an additional $200,000.00 of new money annually to operate. A per capita tax increase of $1.00, to a total of $3.25 for the Home, proposed in 1966, approved in 1967 and effective in 1968 would provide a substantial part of the additional funds needed just about the time it would be needed. Fifty-one per cent of our 1966-1967 Budget will be provided from income on invested funds. Any reduction in dividends, generally, would therefore result in reduction of funds available for operating expenses. An increase in per capita tax would be a safeguard against such a reduction and possible necessity for curtailment of the service we are now able to render. I therefore recommend a per capita tax increase for the Masonic Home in the amount of $1.00. Early in my year, the Masonic Employment Bureau of St. Louis was called to my attention; and I have caused a confidential investigation to be made by a Brother in whom I place the utmost reliance. The results of this report are as follows: It would appear that this Bureau is operated pretty much under the control and direction of the Executive Director. The officers appear to go along with his operation of this Bureau pretty much as a matter of course. The members themselves are not provided with the details of operation to which I believe they are entitled, even when these details are requested. It would appear that some of the unusual methods of operation are: 1. The approval of all expenditures by voucher number rather than by name of payee. 2. The refusal to divulge such payee when request is made. 3. The refusal to divulge who has been placed in what employment, or any details of employment. 4. Operation of the Bureau under a set of by-laws that in at least one respect exceeds the authority granted the Bureau by the Grand Lodge Constitution and By-Laws. T4e above items coupled with my own feeling that the operation of an Employment Bureau is not a strictly Masonic matter, that this service can be provided just as well, if not better, by commercial employment agencies, and the fact that the operation of this Bureau costs the lodges in the 33rd and 57th Masonic districts between $11,000 and $12,000 per year, makes me feel that a fresh look at this operation would be in order. On the strength of this report, I therefore recommend that some group, possibly the Grand Lodge Board of Relief, make a thorough investigation

of this Employment Bureau and report to the next Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge. CONCLUSION My task is done-a new year lies before U$ to inscribe as we will. I hope this year has found us, all of us in fact, benevolent, consistent and true to the teachings of our Fraternity. Tomorrow I shall yield the helm of the Grand Lodge to one who possesses those qualities of leadership which are so desirable in one who is to lead the Grand Lodge of Missouri. Russell Murray is such a man, and one to whom you may look for guidance at all times. I feel that he is a leader who when weighed in the .balance will not be found wanting. During the past ten years, I have learned to depend on the Grand Officers who preceded me, as well as those who are following me, and I know that my successor can do the same. To those persons I am deeply grateful and to you, the members of this Grand Lodge,' I extend my humble thanks and gratitude for allowing me the great distinction and the priceless privilege of serving you as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Missouri. And in conclusion, let me quote these lines: Mayall go well with youl May life's short day glide on peaceful and bright With no more clouds than may glisten in the sunshine, No more rain than may form a rainbow; And may the veiled one of heaven bring us to meet again.

lowing report. The important matters contained therein merit thoughtful consideration. It is apparent that many demands were made of the Grand Master and that a great portion of his time was given to the Craft in making his official visitations to all parts of the State of Missouri and in taking care of the usual duties of the office. All portions of the address dealing with decisions, healings and Masonic law we refer to the Committee on Jurisprudence. 'Ve further recommend that all other matters not herein specified be referred to such committees as may be appropriate. It is the suggestion of your Committee that all take heed of the several recommendations made by the Grand Master and that they be given prompt and suitable attention. The members of this Committee acknowledge with grateful appreciation the fine administration of Our Grand Master and express the sincere thanks of this Grand Lodge for his devotion to his fraternal duties.

As the 1965 Mileage and Per Diem Committee report had been sent to John W. Adams, chairman of the Mileage and Per Diem Committee to prepare forms for the 1966 meeting, we could not check the cancelled checks to the reports, but examined the bank statements. The various items in the foregoing report have been taken from the books and records of the Grand Secretary and reflect the recorded cash transactions of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Missouri from July 1, 1965 to June 30, 1966. All checks issued were examined in support of the disbursements. In checking the per capita tax received and the per capita tax paid to the Masonic Home, we found a balance of $124.91 due to the Masonic Home at June 30, 1966, We also confirmed the disbursements by examination of apprqved invoices for substantially all items. Payroll records and tax returns were also inspected. The bank balances shown in the report were confirmed directly to us by the depositaries. Respectfully submitted, HARVEY & WAGENER, Certified Public Accountants.

No elective director is eligible to succeed himself and no ex officio director may be elected to the board until the annual communication following expiration of his term. Nominations of directors to be elected by the Grand Lodge are made on the first day of the annual communication, as soon after the Grand Master's address as convenient. If no more are nominated than are to be elected, the Grand Secretary casts the ballot for the nominees. If a greater number is nominated than the number to be elected, the Grand Secretary causes a ballot to be printed with the names of the nominees listed alphabetically. The election is held immediately following the election of the Grand Lodge officers and is by plurality vote.

REPORT OF THE SESQUICENTENNIAL COMMITTEE

M.W. Bro. George F. Morrison presented the Report of the Sesquicentennial Committee which was received and ordered printed in the Proceedings, and is as follows: ' To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons: Brethren: Your committee on the Sesquicentennial submits the following report: For several years this committee has submitted a report; however, to date nothing of a definite nature has been resolved nor has the committee had funds budgeted for its operation. Inasmuch as the Grand Lodge of Missouri will mark the 150th anniversary of its founding and organization in the year 1971 and if it is the wish and desire of the Grand Lodge' Officers and the Grand Lodge that such an auspicious occasion be observed in a manner befitting the dignity, prestige and resources of Freemasonry in the State of Missouri, it should be recognized that an appropriate sesquicentennial observance would require careful planning over the intervening years. In view of the above it is the suggestion of this committee that the incoming Grand Master be authorized to appoint a "Sesquicentennial Commission" to serve from the date of appointment up to and through the sesquicentennial year in order to outline plans and prepare a suitable program for the anniversary occasion. Further, it is necessary that funds for an appropriate observance be budgeted and that the commission be advised as to how extensive a program should be developed. Your approval of the above suggestions will enable the Sesquicentennial Commission to give this important assignment enthusiastic attention: To make a progress report at each succeeding annual communication of this Grand Lodge; to appoint subcommittees and give them authority to function; to make preparations to have all areas and Masonic Districts in the State participate in the celebration; to assign responsibilities to the several Grand Lodge Officers and Masonic leaders wherever situated; to have compiled and written a history of accomplishments; to emphasize our charitable activities, namely, the Masonic Home of Missouri; to develop and present in chronological order a year路long Missouri Masonic Heritage program; to arrange for all news media to receive news releases in advance of newsworthy events; to gather, preserve and exhibit Masonic memorabilia; to culminate


1966

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

the sesquicentennial year's program with an appropriate observance at the 1971 communication of the Grand Lodge. The adoption of this report will necessitate the need for the chairman or a member of the commission to counsel with each Grand Master and at times with the Grand Lodge Officers to assure wholehearted cooperation throughout the entire period. Fraternally submitted, GEORGE F. MORRISON, Chairman HAROLD O. GRAUEL FRANK P. BRIGGS ELMER W. WAGNER ROBERT H. MANN.

DISCUSSION ON TIME OF MEETING

At this point the Grand Master Most Worshipful Bro. A. Basey Vanlandingham called for a sampling of sentiment in regard to changing time of next annual meeting from Tuesday to Monday next year, and upon calling for a show of hands of those in favor of meeting on Monday and Tuesday next year, it was determined that a majority were in favor of such a change of time. CALLED FROM LABOR

The Grand Lodge was called from Labor at 12: 15 p.m. Grand Chaplain R.W. Bro. J. c. Montgomery, Jr., offered prayer.


Tuesday Afternoon Called to Labor 1:30 p.m. The Grand Lodge was called to Labor at I: 30 p.m. R.W. Bro. Herbert E. Duncan, Grand Chaplain, offering prayer. REPORT OF THE MASONIC HOME

R.W. Bro. Russell E. Murray presented the Report of the Masonic Home and prefaced the presentation of the report by the following statement: Brethren, we had the introduction of the Masonic Board this morning, and their duties, each one of them. I am sure all of you by now have received a copy of the Masonic Home Report as written by the superintendent and myself. I do not know that there is any explanation needed. I don't intend to go into the reading of some of these resolutions. I do want to mention one thing in particular, because it may be of some question. I had a Past Grand Master ask me awhile ago if this Eastern Star thing was serious. We have hated to bring that thing before the Grand Lodge. The Home Board has taken care of it in the way they thought proper. Last year there was a resolution presented, which I am sure all of you have read by now, and that same resolution was re-affirmed this year, and another resolution presented which would make it compulsory for the Grand Chapter of the Eastern StaT to present this at its Grand Chapter's session. You can read the resolution and I am sure you will understand it. M.W. Bro. Martin Dickinson presented a couple of resolutions, but before I talk about that, I would like to bring you up to date on that portion of it. Shortly after the Grand Chapter's last year's session the Worthy Grand Matron wrote to me and asked me to nominate a committee from the Home Board to meet with a committee appointed by the Worthy Grand Matron. Such committee was appointed by myself with the concurrence of the Grand Master. Most Worshipful Brother Dickinson, by the way, was chairman of that committee. The Grand Master and I were on the committee with him, along with three others. We did have two meetings with the committee from the Grand Chapter. At the last meeting they came with some recommendations, which were the cause of Brother Dickinson's resolutions. They agreed they would present to the Grand Chapter of the Eastern Star these recommendations thin the solicitation of funds for the Golden Years Retirement cease and no gift or contribution shall be accepted by the Golden Years Retirement, Incorporated. That the O.ÂŁ.S. Golden Years Retirement Residence Incorporated, be dissolved and the monies be returned to the donors. By these resolutions Most Worshipful Brother Dickinson presented, they asked that a votmg member be obtained by being elected by the Grand Chapter at its annual meeting and that the name of the Masonic Home be changed to include the Order of the Eastern Star. Let me make it clear: when we agreed to present these resolutions by this

45


46

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1966

committee appointed by the Home Board, we did not say that the Grand Lodge was going to be for these resolutions, but that we would present them. I thought that explanation might be necessary. We had these meetings, and the committees, at least, are fairly well in accord. I say it is a serious thing as far as our Masonic Home is concerned. I think we ought to consider everything we do in regard to this. I am telling you this because just two weeks from last night I am going to have to appear before the Grand Chapter of the Eastern Star and I don't have any choice as to what I am going to talk about, because they have asked me to talk about this. The Worthy Grand Matron, I am sure, is in accord with our thinking on this. She wants me to talk about this one particular thing. Brethren, I don't want to take any more of your time. I would like to move that the report of the Masonic Home be received. Motion seconded and carried.

SPECIAL COMMITTEE The President also appointed a Special Committee to consider a Retirement Plan for the Superintendent and the Assistant Superintendent of the Home. This Committee consisted of the following: Harry Gershenson, Chairman; William R. Denslow, Albert H. Van Gels.

This Committee met and reported back to the Board several times during the year. At the March meeting the following Resolution was offered to the Board for consideration:

RESOLUTION a. After serving for not less than 120 months as Superintendent, or as Assistant Superintendent of the Home, such employee may, at his option, retire from his position on or before October 1st next, after he shall have attained the age of 62 years and shall then receive a retirement pension hereinafter provided. b. No Superintendent, or Assistant Superintendent, shall continue to serve as such following the 1st day of October next after attaining the age of 65 years. c. As and for such retirement pension, such Superintendent, or Assistant Superintendent, who retires as hereinabove provided shall be paid on the following basis: The monthly pension shall be computed as follows: Two and-a-half per cent of the average monthly salary during the last ten years prior to his retirement date as hereinabove set forth, multiplied by the number of years of continuous full time service; provided however that in no event shall any retirement pension exceed 50 per cent of the average monthly salary being received by such employee at the time of his retirement. d. No retirement pension shall be paid to any such employee who retires prior to becoming 62 years of age, or with less than 120 months of service. e. Neither the adoption nor any amendment of this plan shall give any person or persons any vested right. The right is reserved to amend, nullify or repeal this plan for any reason, or for no reason at all. We suggest that a study be made of the subject of financing the plan by the appropriate authority of the Home and the consideration of the budget and other committees of means whereby the plan may be established. f. If the Board concludes to adopt this, or any plan, we recommend that legal counsel be retained to prepare the plan, which plan shall be approved thereafter by the Board.

This Resolution was presented for action at the July meeting of the Board. After a discussion it was moved by Brother Dickinson, and seconded by Brother Gasper, that the suggested retirement plan, as presented by the Special Committee, be approved with the following exceptions, or changes: 1. That the minimum voluntary retirement age be 65 years instead of 62. 2. That the compulsory retirement age be 70 years instead of 65. 3. That paragraph f. be eliminated.

The motion was carried and the pension retirement plan, as amended, was adopted.

ORDER OF THE EASTERN STAR OF MISSOURI Shortly after the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star held its Grand Chapter meeting in Kansas City, the President of the Home received

a communication from the Wor. Grand Matron asking that he appoint a Committee from the Masonic Home Board to meet with a Committee appointed by her from the Order of the Eastern Star to discuss a problem existing between the Order of the Eastern Star and the Masonic Home Board regarding the O.E.S. Golden Years Retirement Residence, Inc. The President, with the concurrence of the Grand Master, appointed the following Committee: Most Wor. Brother Martin B. Dickinson, Chairman; Rt. Wor. Brother Harry C. Ploetze; Rt. Wor. Brother W. Raymond Usher; Most Wor. Brother A. Basey Vanlandingham; Rt. Wor. Brother Russell E. Murray.

The Committee appointed by the Wor. Grand Matron consisted of the following: Mrs. Ora Gardner, Chairman; Mrs. Nettie Wood; Arthur Raymond; Mrs. Lois Fenton; Dr. C. Leslie Leggett; A. Wendell Herod; Frank Arnold, Wor. Grand Patron; Mrs. Geraldine Molander, Wor. Grand Matron.

The first meeting of these two Committees was held at Boonville, Missouri on March 20, 1966. The Committee from the Masonic Home Board reaffirmed the Board's position with reference to the Resolution that was submitted to the Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star, in 1965. At the close of the meeting it was thoroughly understood that the Masonic Home Board did not intend to deviate from its original stand. At its meeting of July 18, 1966, after a full discussion of the matter, the Masonic Home Board reaffirmed the Resolution adopted by the Board of Directors on July 17, 1965 with respect to the relationship between the Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri, and the Masonic Home of Missouri, which was as follows:

RESOLUTION The Board of Directors of the Masonic Home of Missouri finds that: 1. In 1901 the Grand Chapter of Missouri, Order of the Eastern Star, asked that it be allowed to participate in the Masonic Home of Missouri. In 1902 a contract was made for such participation, subject to modification or termination at any time. Undcr it the Grand Chapter paid a per capita tax of 15 cents per member per year. The Grand Lodge per capita tax was then 50 cents. Ever since 1902 members of the Eastern Star have been admitted to the Home on exactly the same basis as Master Masons and their widows. The policy of the Home has been to require the application to bc made by the Lodge if there was such eligibility. Those who were admitted on applications from Chapters were only those who were ineligible for Lodge applications, so far as disclosed. 2. The per capita tax paid by the members of the Eastern Star has been increased only once, to 25 cents per year, effective in 1922. This per capita tax returns approximately $21,500 per year. The per capita tax paid by Master Masons through the Grand Lodge has been increased repeatedly and now is $2.25 per year. Currently it produces approximately $260,000 per year for the Home. In addition to the per capita taxes stated, the Grand Chapter has, from time to time, made substantial contributions, in kind and in cash, especially for building purposes and furnishings, and the Grand Lodge has raised large amounts for. building purposes. 3. Approximately 350 old folks are members of the Home Family. Of these nearly 100 were admitted on application of Chapters of the Eastern Star, and had no


50

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1966

known Lodge eligibility. Of the remaining 250 old folks, about 60 are men and about 190 are women. Presumably many of these women, and some of these men, are members of the Order of the Eastern Star. 4. The budget of the Home for the year which commenced July I, 1965 is approximately $800,000. Of this amount at least $240,000 is attributable to the care of old folks admitted on application of Chapters of the Order of the Eastern Star. Approximately 35 per cent of the annual budget of the Home is derived from per capita tax, and the remainder from other sources. Thirty-five per cent of the estimated $240,000 annual cost of maintenance of old folks admitted on applications of Chapters of the Eastern Star is $84,000, as against the $21,500 paid by it in per capita tax. The additional contributions made through the Grand Chapter have not averaged as much as the O.E.S. per capita tax. Much of these contributions was for building purposes, including furnishings, for which special contributions were also asked of the Master Masons. 5. The Masonic Home of Missouri can continue its charitable activities, in the relief of needy and indigent Master Masons and their widows and orphans, and needy indigent members of the Order of the Eastern Star, only if it continues to receive substantial voluntary contributions, both gifts and bequests, and is the principal beneficiary of the efforts of the organizations participating in the Home in that direction. 6. Prior to 1962 the principal efforts of the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star for gifts and contributions were toward the Masonic Home of Missouri. In that year, without advance discussion with the Directors of the Masonic Home of Missouri or the officers of the Grand L,odge, and without any vote of the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star, a program was instituted which resulted in the establishment of a corporation known as the O.E.S. Golden Years Retirement Residence, Inc. That Corporation subsequently was authorized by the Grand Chapter, and has engaged in active solicitation for gifts and other contributions. That corporation uses the name of the Order of the Eastern Star with its official approval, and presumably is subject to control of the Grand Chapter of the Eastern Star when and if ever the Grand Chapter chooses to exercise such control. 7. The facts herein stated, as they existed up to that time, were stated by the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Missouri in his address in 1963, with the conclusion that the support of the Masonic Home should consist of both per capita tax and the principal voluntary contributions of the organizations supporting the Home. The Grand Master further stated that if the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star ceased to extend that type of support to the Masonic Home, the Directors of the Masonic Home would have no recourse but to tell the Grand Chapter that the arrangements must be modified or terminated. He expressed the hope that it would not be necessary for the Grand Lodge or the Directors of the Home to take any such action, and the hope and expectation that the Grand Chapter would take action appropriate to the facts on its own initiative. 8. The Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star has failed to take any action appropriate to the facts before stated. On the contrary, it has authorized and encouraged the organization and operation of the corporation before mentioned, and the solicitation of contributions to that corporation, without mention of the lack of charitable character of the enterprise. The officers of said corporation have circulated letters referring to the Masonic Home. There was no justification for any such reference; nor were all the statements accurate. 9. The establishment and support of the O.E.S. Golden Years Retirement Residence, Inc. by the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star diverts from the Masonic Home a necessary and important source of future support. Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the President of the Home, the Grand Master concurring, be directed to inform the officers of the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri that unless it prohibits further solicitations of contributions, whether by gift or by bequest, to enterprises such as the O.E.S. Golden


1966

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

51

Years Retirement Residence, Inc., the Masonic Home of Missouri will modify or terminate its present contract with the Grand Chapter as to future admissions.

The Resolution was read in full by Brother Dickinson and all present, including the representatives of the Order of the Eastern Star, were given the opportunity, and urged to discuss the Resolution. Following a full and frank discussion it was regularly moved and seconded that the Resolution be adopted. The motion was unanimously approved by the members of the Board of Directors present and voting after which the President declared the Resolution adopted. Brother Dickinson then moved that if the Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri, had not taken acceptable action on the Resolution of July 17, 1965 by the end of its forthcoming Annual Session, qr Communication, consideration of further applications for admission to the Masonic Home of Missouri from Chapters of the Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri be indefinitely postponed. This motion was duly seconded and carried. On July 16, 1966 the Committee of the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri, along with the Wor. Grand Matron, Mrs. Geraldine Molander, and the Wor. Grand Patron, Frank Arnold, met with the Committee from the Masonic Home Board. In this meeting the O.E.S. Committee presented the following recommendations, which they stated will be presented to the Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri, at its 1966 Session: "I. That the solicitation for funds for the Golden Years Retirement Residence be ceased. "2. That no gifts or contributions shall be accepted by the Golden Years Retirement Residence, Inc. "3. That the O.E.S. Golden Years Retirement Residence, Inc., be dissolved and the monies be returned to donors, agreeable to original stated pledges."

The Committee made the following requests which they would like to see presented to the Grand Lodge of Missouri: "I. That a voting member be obtained on the Masonic Home Board to be elected by the Grand Chapter at its annual meeting. "2. That the name of the Masonic Home be changed to include the Order of the Eastern Star."

After a general discussion there seemed to be a complete understanding between the two Committees and the meeting was adjourned.

THE HOME FAMILY Reference to the statistical portion of this report shows that at the beginning of the fiscal year, July 1, 1965, there were 383 guests in the Home. At the end of the fiscal year the Home Family numbered 392. This means that, as far as adult guests are concerned, our facilities have been, and are, severely overtaxed. In recent months it has been necessary for approved applicants to wait three months, or more, after their applications have been approved before there was room for them in the Home. At the close of the fiscal year, ]6 aged persons were on this waiting list. Many of those accepted for admission are hospital patients from the time they arrive at the Home, because of infirmities of age but many, too, have had to live in the Hospital for weeks

because there were no rooms available for them in the residence part of the Home. This is not a good situation for those. who are ill and infirm, nor for those who are able to take care of themselves. However, we have been able to receive and care for people in this way. The result has been that most of our 200 hospital beds have been occupied much of the year-at times we have had less than 10 beds in the Hospital available for admittance of patients who suffer from some acute temporary illness needing hospital care. Our average daily hospital census for the year ending June 30, 1966 was 181. We continue to enjoy a fine working relationship with St. Luke's Hospital and the Barnes Hospital Group. We do no surgery in our Hospital. When surgery is needed our guests go to St. Luke's and are returned to our Hospital as soon as possible for nursing care and convalescence. Those of our guests who have eye problems-examinations, cataract operations, etc.-are taken to Barnes Hospital for this care. Similarily, our guests receive excellent dental care at the Washington University School of Dentistry Clinic. Our station wagon, which doubles as an ambulance, travels many miles weekly taking our folk to these hospitals for needed treatment. In view of the crowded conditions of the Home during the past year and the fact that we have a waiting list for the first time in several years, the Administration Committee has discussed the necessity and feasibility of increasing the facilities of the Home. They have suggested that the Long Range Planning Committee make a study of the situation and report to the Board as soon as possible. The Long Range Planning Committee has had several meetings during the year but has held in abeyance plans for any future increase in the facilities of the Home awaiting the outcome of action that may be taken by the Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri, as it would be unnecessary to increase the facilities of the Home were we to discontinue receiving any applicants from the Order of the Eastern Star. During the year just ended our children's population has reached the highest point in several years. At the end of the year we had 35 children, including one of our boys, Clyde Dunn, who is in the Army and is in Korea. Also included was Douglas Sprouse, who was graduated from George Williams College in Chicago in June of 1966, with a Bachelor of Science Degree. The Board has authorized Douglas to continue his education by enrolling in McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, where he is presently working for his Master of Social Work and Bachelor of Divinity Degrees. Our children are again enrolled in the Normandy School District Schools, from Kindergarten to Senior High School. This is an excellent School District and we continue to be most grateful to the officials of the Normandy School District for making it possible for our children to attend their schools.

BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS The Ladies Building completed in 1938 and the New Building completed in 1959 are in excellent condition and present no maintenance problems. As pointed out in previous reports, the Administration and Children's Building is quite old and requires much work on the part of the Engineer and his maintenance crew. The other buildings on the grounds, which are more than 70 years old, are in much the same condition. All of these buildings, however, are in satisfactory condition, considering their age. Altogether, the


1966

53

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

Home presents an attractive appearance and our Home Family is comfortably housed.

ENTERTAINMENT Again this year our Home Family has been well entertained through the year by interested and attentive groups, for which we are grateful. For fear of slighting any person or group, I do not wish to attempt to name all who have contributed so generously of their time and talents, but rather express in this report the very great appreciation of the Home Family, and the Board of Directors, to all who have had a part in bringing so much pleasure to our Home Family. There is included in this report a record of gifts to the Home from the Order of the Eastern Star of Missouri, and a report of the activities of the Masonic Home Cheer Committee of St. Louis and St. Louis County which I commend to your attention. Also included is a list of those organizations and individuals who have contributed to the Christmas and Entertainment Fund of the Home which is used throughout the year to provide for "extras" over and above the necessities of life for our Home Family. To all of these I express the very heartfelt gratitude of the Board of Directors.

CONCLUSION In concluding this report I would like to pay tribute to the Brethren who are leaving the Board, for the long and faithful service that they have路 rendered to the Masonic Home. The term of membership on the Board of Rt. Wor. Brother Harry Gershenson and Rt. Wor. Brother C. Leonard Gasper expires with this Grand Lodge. Each of them has been tireless in his service to the Home. Most Wor. Brother A. Basey Vanlandingham, who also retires from the Board at the conclusion of the Grand Lodge Communication, having served a four-year tenure as a member of the Board prior to becoming a member of the Board by virtue of his Grand Lodge office, has done much for the Masonic Home of Missouri. The entire Board of Directors deserves much credit for the fine work which they have been doing and I have enjoyed working with them for the many years that I have been on the Board. I recommend that the members of the Grand Lodge refer to the statistical portion of this report because it not only indicates the activities of the Home but also it indicates the size of this our One Great Charity. Fraternally submitted, RUSSELL E. MURRAY, President.

MASONIC HOME CHEER COMMITTEE 1965-1966 July 31, 1966 Mr. Russell E. Murray, President Masonic Home of Missouri Dear Rt. Wor. Bro. Murray: Attached is a report of the activities of the Masonic Home Cheer Committee and a complete listing of its receipts and disbursements for the past year. It has been a real joy to be able to bring pleasure and entertainment to our Masonic Home Family. We hope that the programs, as arranged, both religious and entertaining, have in some small measure added to their contentment and meet with the approval of the Officers and Directors of the Home. Ten Religious Services, including the annual St. John's Day Service, were held during the year. The attendance was 1,417 for an average of 142 at each service. We believe that with a little more concentrated effort on the part

of the presiding officers of the various Lodges, Chapters and other bodies, as well as the representatives to the Cheer Committee, this attendance could be increased immeasurably and our beautiful Chapel could be utilized to its fullest capacity to the glory of God. We want to take this opportunity to thank the various Masonic Bodies, Eastern Star Chapters, Job's Daughters and DeMolay for their part in arranging and sponsoring these services. To the Ministers, Organists and Choirs that participated, a big "Thanks." As has been the custom for many years, the entertainment has been provided without renumeration and to those who have been responsible for it we are ever grateful. As I bring to a close two years of presiding over this committee, I want to thank the representatives who have so ably assisted me, and Rt. Wor. Bros.

THE GRAND MASTER: I am going to deviate just a bit from the established order of our proceedings. Here in the Grand Lodge I have a young man who will be 21, I believe, in less than 30 days. He has petitioned Meridian Lodge No.2 for membership. He is a very interesting young fellow; he belongs to the DeMolay. He is the Master Counselor for the Eastern Jurisdiction, John W. Siscel, III. I would like to call the Grand Lodge at ease for just a few moments so he may be brought in and introduced and say a few words to you. At this point there were remarks by John W. Siscel, III, Master Counselor for the Eastern Jurisdiction, Order of DeMolay. REMARKS BY M.W. BRO. LOUIS RICKETTS

M.W. Bro. Louis Ricketts, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Nebraska, spoke briefly to the brethren. REPORT OF GRAND LECTURER

R.W. Bro. Freelon K. Hadley, presented the Report of the Grand Lecturer, which was adopted, and is as follows:

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

107

To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Missouri: BRETHREN: I submit my 15th annual report as your Grand Lecturer. It has been my policy to start my official visits in the early part of September each year. This early start enables me to visit each district once and where it is deemed advisable to make return visits. Following this plan, I have been able to visit every district in the state each year. In addition to these visits I hold 26 regional meetings with my deputies. All of these meetings are open to any Master Mason and their attendance is always appreciated. Missouri has 65 reasons why our ritual is on the high plane it occupies at this time. I am referring to the District Deputy Grand Lecturers. These brethren work tirelessly, year in and year out, striving to keep the ritual uniform and increase the interest of the officers of the lodges. In addition to the lodges of instruction in the metropolitan areas, these deputies have held over 600 schools of instruction during the past year. Brethren, this is a monumental piece of work of which I am justly proud and one which I am sure is appreciated by this Grand Lodge. Even with all this work on the part of the District Deputy Grand Lecturers and their willingness to help any individual at any time, there is the continued use of the "code book" by some brethren. There is no just reason for anyone to use a code book when help is available for the asking and besides it is a masonic offense to use one. (Page 102, 1958 Book of Constitution and By-Laws.) In the past I have openly criticized "degree teams" and will continue to do so when they do not conform to our ritual. By the same standard, I want to compliment and encourage the "degree teams" that conform to our ritual and who by their efforts help improve the ritual and strengthen the position of the District Deputy Grand Lecturers. I quote from the report of R.W. Bro. William W. Forrester, District Deputy Grand Lecturer of the 22nd District, Division B, and also a member of the Committee on Ritual. "On April 16, 1966, the Scottish Rite Bodies of Des Moines, Iowa held their annual meeting for the purpose of presenting the elective officers of lodges in their jurisdiction. The East Gate Travelers Club of East Gate Lodge No. 630 of Kansas City was invited to confer the third degree on a candidate of East G.ate Lodge No. 630 of Des Moines. This event was very successful with about 700 Masons present from some 100 lodges including 89 Masters of Iowa Lodges. The ritualistic performance of the Travelers Club Degree Team was outstanding and the quiet attention of the brethren was evidence of their interest. "M:W. Bro. D. L. Andrews, Grand Master of Masons in Iowa, in his remarks said: 'The Ritualistic work of the East Gate Travelers Club Team was not only outstanding for the near perfect ritual but also because it was performed with the dignity and solemnity which should always be present in all Masonic ritual.''' This degree team of the East Gate Travelers Club adheres strictly to our ritual and is to be congratulated on the fine work they are doing. They have the solid support of the District Deputy Grand Lecturers where they have appeared. It is a difficult task to get the officers of a lodge to realize the importance of conferring the degrees in a solemn, dignified and impressive manner. If we are to make Masons out of our candidates and expect them to continue to come to lodge after they have received their three degrees, we must impress them when we confer the degrees. Too many officers make their first attempt at conferring a degree without any practice. The impression made in such cases is often not too favorable. We realize everyone must make that first attempt, but it should be made in a practice session and not on a candidate. Noticeable improvement has been made the past. year in the reception of Grand Lodge Officers and Distinguished Visitors into the lodges. I am sure the reason (or the improvement is that the officers have given it a little thought beforehand. It ill hoped that this phase will continue to show progress. .

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1966

I had a request under Section 13.110 of the Grand Lodge By-Laws to confer the 'degrees on a man that was almost totally deaf. In 1963 I had a similar request and at that time, after consulting with the Committee on Ritual, the Deputy Grand Master and the Grand Master, the request was denied. Using that decision as a precedent and after consulting with the Grand Master the request this year was also denied. It was a shock when I learned that R.W. Bro. Leo D. Lindsey, District Deputy Grand Lecturer of the 48th District, was fatally injured March 9, 1966, while working on his job as a heavy equipment operator. R.W. Bro. Lindsey was serving his fourth year as a lecturer having received his first appointment in 1962. He had the love and respect of those who knew him and will be sadly missed in his district. One of the outstanding meetings of the year was a special meeting of Acacia Lodge No. 602 held February 12. The purpose of the meeting was to confer the third degree on A. Basey Vanlandingham, Jr., the oldest son of our Grand Master. The chairs with the exception of the craftsmen were all filled by the officers of the Grand Lodge. To my knowledge this has never happened before in Missouri. Brethren from all sections of the state were in attendance which was a tribute to our Grand Master. Acacia Lodge was the perfect host and served a fine dinner after the meeting. I wish to thank the brethren over the state who have done so much to help make this year a success. To the District Deputy Grand Lecturers and the District Deputy Grand Masters, who are indispensable to this Grand Lodge, lowe a debt of gratitude. The Grand Lodge Officers are always a reserve source of strength for the Grand Lecturer and I appreciate their interest and counsel. To our Grand Master, M.W. Bro. A. Basey Vanlandingham, who has done so many things for me these many years, I say "Thanks." Fraternally submitted, FREELON K. HADLEY. Grand Lecturer.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RITUAL

R.W. Bro. Freelon K. Hadley presented the report of the Committee on Ritual, which was adopted, and is as follows: To the Most WorshiPful Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Missomi: BRETHREN: Your Committee on Ritual submits the following report. The committee held two meetings during the year. It was proposed at the first meeting that the movements in the lectures in part one, part two and part three of Sub-Division TI of the Certificate Plan be made a part of the examination. After much discussion, the committee decided it would be better to get the opinion of as many interested brethren as possible before taking final action. The proposal was brought before the District Deputy Grand Lecturers and other brethren at our sectional meetings. It was also discussed during my visits to the various districts. The response was almost 100 per cent in favor of the proposal. The second meeting was then called to discuss and adopt rules and regulations necessary to put the proposal into effect. This was done and the movements are now included in the examination. These movements have been made a part of the examination for uniformity's sake and not to make it more difficult for anyone taking the examination. The words "Authorized Instructor" on the certificates will now mean something. There has been no requests for rulings on disputed points nor has there been any proposed changes in the ritual during the year.

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

Net Loss, June 30, 1966

119 1,297

Net Membership, June 30, 1966

117,218 COMMENTS

We are sorry to note that we have a net loss in membership in the past year of 1,297. A total loss in membership in the last ten years amounts to 6,527. A great part of this loss is due to suspensions for nonpayment of dues. Last year alone 2,082 were suspended and only 1,273 reinstated. The number of deaths exceeded the number raised by 448. Again, we urge the Worshipful Master of each lodge to ask the secretary and some well-known members of the lodge to write a friendly letter or make a personal call, and explain to the delinquent member the many reasons why he should maintain his membership. We feel this evidence of good fellowship will have a beneficial effect. If each of the 590 Lodges had reinstated two more delinquent members we would have had a very small loss. CO~CLUSION

Freemasonry again faces the challenge of an uncertain future. This has happened many times down through the years and will happen again. It behooves all lodges to hold fast to the ancient landmarks of the order-observe the ideals of service and brotherly love. Let the young men know by your words and deeds that the Masonic Lodge makes a wonderful cornerstone on which to build his career of service to his fellowman. Respectfully submitted, J. CLYDE BUTLER, Chairman. BALLOTS CAST FOR MASONIC HOME BOARD

R.W. Bro. Elmer W. Wagner, Grand Secretary, at this point cast the ballots for Roy Sander and Lloyd C. Seaman for a four-year term, and Eugene Northern for unexpired three-year term who were elected by acclamation. REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON APPEALS AND GRIEVANCES

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1966

We are told that in the dim future, we should not seek to peep, trying to fathom things obscure and deep. Youth often laughs at death but old men weep. Wise men know death to be an endless sleep-an endless sleep-few can better describe death .... Endless rest for the body, eternal enfranchisement for the soul.

o life, 0 death, what endless words are these Whose very sounds my mortal powers amaze! I hear the winds among the sighing trees But what it is, eludes my keenest gaze. Across the clouds, I watch the lightning Hy, I see the trees that it has riven wideBut past my ken its wondrous secrets lie, And to its home, no mortal man can guide. Mysterious things are lightning, wind and breath, Which come and go, we know not whence or where, But more mysterious far are life and death Which rule alike the earth, the sea, the air. There was no awareness of death to these our brethren-they have gone on to their restful sleep, it is we, their fellow labours, who taste the pangs of bereavement. We miss them keenly, but we know that theirs is a better state and we would not be selfish enough to seek their return. M.W. Bro. Harry F. Sunderland) Past Grand Master (1949), preceded his two fellow Past Grand Masters in death, passing on on January 31, 1966; M.W. Bro. Harold L. Reader, Past Grand Master (1938) and Past Grand Secretary followed in death on February 9, 1966; and M.W. Bro. Henry C. Chiles, Past Grand Master (1938) laid down his working tools on March I, 1966. M.W. Brother Sunderland served this Grand Lodge as Grand Master in 1948-49. Born at Sterling, Nebraska, May 7, 1897, he was the son of Walter Scott Sunderland and Eva Lee Frye. He attended public school at Lincoln, Nebraska, and also Lincoln Business College. As a young man he came to Kansas City, Missouri, and in February 1924 he married Eula Mae Alexander, a native-born Missourian. They had no children. M.W. Brother Sunderland was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in Rural Lodge No. 316, A.F. & A.M., May 20, 1922, and served as Worshipful Master of that lodge in 1931. He was Exalted in East Gatc Chapter No. 316, Royal Arch Masons on May 6, 1943 and Greeted in Westport Council No. 38, Royal & Select Masters, November 10, 1943. He was a very active Mason, both in and out of State, and served as President of the Master and Wardens Association for the 22nd District in 1931. He had a very friendly disposition, always ready and willing to help in any undertaking. He was well-liked and highly respected by his brethren over all the State. When M.W. Bro. Karl M. Vetsburg was elected Grand Master he appointed Brother Sunderland to the post of Grand Pursuivant, and in the course of time he was advanced regularly to Grand Master. He served the Grand Lodge with zeal and integrity, and retired with the respect and admiration of the members of the Craft. After retiring as Grand Master, he kept up his activity locally, and while vacationing in Southern Texas he was seized with a heart attack, which proved fatal January 31, 1966, and he was laid to his Eternal Rest on February 4, 1966. M.W. Bro. Harold Locke Reader) Grand Master of Masons in Missouri in 19371938, passed away at St. Petersburg, Florida, l'cbruary 9, 1966, after an illness of several months. Dr. Reader, who served the Grand Chapter, Royal Arch Masons of Missouri as its Grand High Priest in 1932-1933, was active in Masonic, Church and Civic affairs. His term of office as Grand Secretary, 1944 until his voluntary retirement in May

1960, was one of service and activity. He edited The Freemason from its inception in 1954 until the time of his retirement. Born at Marblehead~ Massachusetts, May 6, 1885, and a descendant of the Locke family, his family moved to East St. Louis, Illinois, where he completed his grade and high school education, then entered Washington University, St. Louis, transferring to Shurtleff College, Illinois, where he received the degree Ph.B. Dr. Reader was an ordained minister in the Baptist Church and at the age of 27 became pastor of the \Vebster Groves Baptist Church, serving that church for more than 25 years. He received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Shurtleff College in 1928, of which he also served as a Trustee. He was a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity at Washington University. During World War I, Dr. Reader was given a leave of absence from Webster Groves Baptist Church, and entered the military service as Chaplain of the Fifth Missouri Infantry, the famous Joffre Regiment. He was also commended for his army activities and was active in many veterans and Masonic organizations on his return to this country. He became a Mason in Wellston Lodge No. 613, A.F. & A.M., during the time that this lodge was working Under Dispensation from the Grand Lodge. He was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason February 23, 1911, and went regularly through the chairs, reaching the station of Senior Warden in 1917, when he entered military service. He returned to his lodge and was Worshipful Master in 1920. He served as District Deputy Grand Master in 1920, and was appointed in the Grand Lodge line in 1926 as Grand Pursuivant. He served as Grand Orator in 1924. His ability as an orator, his repartee, wit and forceful personality, and his knowledge of the Fraternity, made him a welcome guest wherever he went. M.W. Bro. Henry Clay Chiles, Grand Master of Masons in Missouri in 1938-1939, and Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter, Royal Arch Masons of Missouri, died on March I, 1966, and was buried with Masonic services, at Lexington, on March 4, 1966. Born at Lexington on February 26, 1886, he received his early education in the schools of that city, attended William Jewell College, where he received the degrees of A.B. and A.M., then was graduated from Harvard Law School with the degree LL.B. A practicing attorney, he was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, and was a member of the Missouri and American Bar Associations. His greatest activity, however, was in the military service. At the opening of World War II, he served in the Judge Advocate General's Department, being stationed at Headquarters, 7th Service Command, Omaha, as Assistant Staff Judge Advocate and legal assistance officer. After the War, he became a civilian employee (attorney) with the War Department, going to Germany and France, taking part in the \Var Criminals Trials at Nurnberg, and elsewhere. He did much research and writing on Masonic topics, and his. study of the Old Masonic College at Lexington, its background, history and activities, was one of the outstanding contributions made in that sphere of Masonic action. He was a member of Lexington Lodge No. 140, A.F. & A.M., of which he was a Past Master. Other Masonic affiliations included Lexington Chapter No. 10, R.A.M., Past High Priest;Shekinah Council No. 24, R. & S.M., at Kansas City; DeMolay Commandery No.3, K.T.; Scottish Rite, Kansas City, an Honorary 33° member; Ararat Shrine, Past Patron, Lexington Chapter No. 248, O.E.S., as well as a host of other affiliated Masonic groups. M.W. Brother Chiles was active with M.W. Bro. John Pickard in the activities of the Missouri Council of Research, which prior to the chartering of the Missouri Lodge of Research, was one of the ties between Masonic study and the many Masons who were interested in such activity.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MASONIC EDUCATION

R.W. Bro. John T. Suesens, chairman, presented the Report of the Committee on Masonic Education and moved that it be received. Motion seconded and carried, and the report is as follows: â&#x20AC;˘ To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: BRETHREN: During the 1964-65 Masonic year, your Committee on Masonic Education proposed to the officers of this M.W. Grand Lodge the establishment in Missouri of a Masonic education counselor system on a district and a lodge basis. This proposal still was under study at the time your Committee reported its recommendation at the annual communication of this M.W. Grand Lodge last September. Shortly thereafter, your Committee suggested a pilot Masonic education counselor program to M.W. Grand Master A. Basey Vanlandingham and the other grand lodge officers studying the proposal. On a pilot basis, the counselor system would be tried first in the more heavily populated areas of the statc to determine reception and feasibility. This pilot program was suggested as an alternative to state-wide establishmcnt should the latter not be deemed advisable at this time. In November, 1965, M.W. Grand Master Vanlandingham notified your Com¡ mittee the pilot program had been approved. The Committee acted at oncc. Two members, W. Bro. Lewis C. (Wes) Cook and R.W. Bro. Robert H. Arnold, agreed to prepare the Masonic education counselor's handbook which would be the basis for instruction. They also were to recommend a different name for the program if they thought it more suitable for Missouri's use. Another member, W. Bro. O. Wes Konering, agreed to check into handbook publication costs.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

Preparation of the handbook required much work. It involved study of handbooks in use by other Grand Lodge jurisdictions which have the counselor system. It involved bringing into conformity with Missouri usage information derived from many sources. That handbook will be ready soon. The pilot program will be started shortly thereafter. The Freemason, official publication of this M.W. Grand Lodge, and the Candidates Booklets still are your Committee's principal means of disseminating Masonic education in Missouri. The Freemason's circulation and the cost of its publication continue to rise. The June, 1966, printing was 19,000 copies. The total cost of publication during the 1965-66 Masonic year was almost 80 per cent of the $9,500 budget allowed the Committee. Missouri was represented at the 16th annual Midwest Conference on Masonic Education at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, October 21-23, 1965, by the following: M.W. Bro. Harold O. Grauel, past grand master; W. Bro. Lewis C. (Wes) Cook and W. Bro. O. Wes Konering, all members of your Committee on Masonic Education; R.W. Bro. Elmer W. 'Vagner, grand secretary; W. Bro. John Black Vrooman, editor of The Freemason, and Bro. Robert M. Stowe. This M.W. Grand Lodge was honored by the election of W. Bro. Lewis C. (Wes) Cook as vice-president of the Midwest Conference on Masonic Education. W. Bro. Cook read a paper on "Masonic Education for the Candidate." W. Bro. O. Wes Konering acted as a moderator. R.W. Bro. Elmer W. Wagner served on the auditing committee. The 1966 Midwest Conference on Masonic Education will be in 1\1ilwaukee, Wisconsin, October 13-15. Your Committee on Masonic Education is grateful for the active and intelligent interest our grand master, M.W. Bro. A. Basey Vanlandingham, took in the Masonic Education program during the Grand Lodge year. His counsel and assistance were invaluable. The Committee thanks him and his officers for their consideration. Finally, your Committee wishes to express its appreciation for the co-operation received from the grand secretary, R.'V. Bro. Elmer W. Wagner, and his staff and from W. Bro. John Black Vrooman, editor of The Freemason. Fraternally submitted, JOHN T. SUESENS, LF.WIS C. WES COOK,

REPORT OF MISSOURI LODGE OF RESEARCH M.W. Bro. Martin B. Dickinson presented the report of the Missouri Lodge of Research and moved that it be received. Motion seconded and carried, and the report is as follows:

To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge) A.F. & A.M. of Missouri: BRETHREN: This brief report speaks for 1,269 members of the Missouri Lodge of Research; it is a net gain of 38 members: Nothing to be satisfied with but something to be thankful for. The real stimulus of this organization during the past year has been our secretary, A. W. Griffith; Editor, Wes Cook and Bill Denslow. Many others, like myself, have contributed what they could. The membership received the following books and publications this past year: The 1965 Grand Masters Address; "Masonic Review" by M.'V. Bro. Bruce Hunt; The History of Freemasonry in Pettis County by Past Grand Commander. Harold N. Painter, and Did You Know? edited by Wes Cook. This book Did You Know? is one of the more unique and interesting books we have received. Truly a historian's delight. . 'Ves Cook, Bill Mathews and Elvin Luff deserve our grateful thanks for their fine work in getting the books rebound in the Truman Library. We have even more to look forward to this next year. The transactions for 1966 will constitute the first volume in a two-volume work, Freemasonry Through Six Centuries by Henry Wilson Coil, Sr. Mr. Coil has spent nearly 30 years researching this material; this should be something special indeed. Other publications will follow. I have a strong feeling that this next year, under the leadership of Martin B. Dickinson, as Worshipful Master, that the Masonic Lodge of Research will have the greatest increase in membership of any year thus far. It is a great disappointment to me, not to be able to attend this Grand Lodge session and preside over the Missouri Lodge of Research. My grateful thanks to my successor W. B. Martin Dickinson for acting in my stead. It would be my hope that every member of our Lodge of Research express a word of appreciation and encouragement to those who make the "wheels go round" of and in this invaluable organization-Missouri Lodge of Research. Fraternally and respectfully, JAMES P. HULL,

Worshipful Master.

REPORT OF THE BUILDING SUPERVISORY BOARD

R.W. Bro. Fred C. Heuermann presented the report of the Committee Building Supervisory Board and moved its adoption. Motion seconded and carried, and the report is as follows: To the Most WorshiPful Grand Lodge, A.F. &- A.M. of Missouri: Your Building Supervisory Board herewith submits its report of activities and decisions during the past year. . The year 1965-66 has been a busy and progressive one in Freemasonry, and it has been our pleasure to serve many of our lodges throughout the state by assisting them with problems of purchasing and renovating their buildings, incorporating their temple companies under the Missouri Nonprofit Corporation law, and other matters within the scope of our board. Thirty lodges applied for and were authorized to make substantial building improvements, including the purchase of new buildings and the repair and enlargement of present buildings, with an estimated over-all cost of $335,000. Current plans call for continued building programs. Your board knows of no lodge which is having any financial difficulty at this time, and it would appear that they are all in excellent financial condition. The Building Supervisory Board has continued to recommend the use of the nonprofit corporation as a means of holding lodge property, and a number of the lodges have incorporated such companies to hold the title to their buildings during the past year. All details of the actions of the board are attached as an appendix to this report for publication in the proceedings of the Grand Lodge, and copies of the board's decisions are filed with the Grand Master and the Grand Secretary as they are made, thereby keeping them fully informed of the board's activities. In conclusion, we feel that the lodges of this jurisdiction are operating their temple boards and their buildings in a good, businesslike manner and that the construction and maintenance of lodge properties are such that we can be proud of the interest of the Masons in their Masonic homes. Your board has considered it a privilege to participate in this fine Masonic activity. Fraternally submitted, JAMES M. BRADFORD, FRED C. HEUERMANN, HARRY A. HALL, Chairman. APPENDIX

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MASONIC TEMPLE ASSOCIATION OF ST. LOUIS

R.W. Bro. John Burle presented the report of the Committee on Masonic Temple Association of St. Louis, and moved its adoption. Motion seconded and carried and the report is as follows: To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, A.F. 6' A.M. of Missouri: BRETHREN: Your special Grand Lodge Committee for the Masonic Temple Association of Sl. Louis respectfully offers the following rcport: The Temple Board was again fortunate to have as its president, Robert D. Kerr, who provided competent and inspiring leadership. The board meetings were well attended and many problems and topics of discussion relative to the welfare and maintenance of the temple were capably resolved by the action of the board. While the overall membership of the bodies meeting in the temple continues to decline, the attendance is good by comparison with other lodges and the decline in membership cannot be considered to be an exceptional condition. In reference to litigation proceedings in the case of West Gate Lodge No. 445, A.F. & A.M., M.W. Bro. Richard O. Rumer, at a meeting on October 25, 1965, read excerpts from the "findings of the court," which rendered judgment in favor of The Masonic Temple Association of St. Louis. M.W. Bro. Richard O. Rumer also stated that the defendant (West Gate Lodge No. 445, A.F. & A.M.) had filed motion for a new trial. Actions in the case have not been concluded. It is evident that the increased operating and maintenance care of the temple necessarily limits the hudget as to its expenditures and taxes the ability of the Association to carry out to the fullest extent the programs proposed. However, prudent management of income and expenditures provides a sound financial condition of the temple. The budget adopted by the board for the year 1966 is as follows: PROPOSED BUDGET FOR

The parking lots continue to operate on a close margin between expense and income. Increasing the income from these lots to provide for debt reduction continues to be a problem, but has been able to meet the annual mortgage interest. These parking lots encourage good attendance at all temple meetings. All Masons throughout the State of Missouri should feel a measure of pride in the New Masonic Temple of St. Louis, which continues to be the home of the Grand Lodge and a great edifice of Freemasonry.

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC SCHOOLS

W. Bro. Harry C. Avery, chairman, presented the report of Special Committee on Public Schools, and moved its adoption. Motion seconded and carried, and the report is as follows: Most Worshipful A. Basey Vanlandingham, shortly after he became Grand Master last year, appointed a special committee known as the Public School Committee of the Grand Lodge. This was a new committee which had to explore and feel its way along. It was appointed pursuant to the Resolution adopted in 1920 by the Grand Lodge of Missouri entitled "The Free Public School System" and designated Resolution 1920-187, and is to be found on page 106 of the Constitution and ByLaws, 1958, Grand Lodge of Missouri. It provides, among other things, the following: "It (the Grand Lodge) regards the free public school as the chief bulwark of the State and Nation, to be kept under the sole dominion and direction of the State, and so far as the efforts of Freemasonry in Missouri are concerned, its voice, vote and influence will at all times be exerted in keeping it so." The Committee met once during the year at Columbia, Missouri. However, various members of the Committee have corresponded with each other from time to time and sent each other information appertaining to the public school system and germane to public education. It has served as a very useful vehicle for the dissemination of information about public education in Missouri, and some of the problems in connection therewith. It has also interested itself in matters pertaining to the expenditure of public school funds and taxes. In view of the foregoing Resolution supporting the free public school system and the long advocacy of free public education by the Masonic fraternity, recent events in Washington, D. C., should be of special interest. According to an editorial


1966

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat on September 19, 1966, entitled: "Education 'Commissar' Eyes Textbooks" there is a move afoot for the Federal Government to select, approve and purchase the textbooks for the nation's schools. Your Committee submits that this is a matter of grave concern not only to Freemasons but to every freedom loving citizen. Our whole free public school system seems to be threatened. Because of the many problems facing free public education, as well as freedom of thought and expression and the pursuit of truth, it is respectfully suggested that Freemasons take an active interest in this problem, and that the Public School Committee be continued. Respectfully submitted, HARRY C. AVERY, Chairman,

ROBERT H. ARNOLD, BRUCE H. HUNT. EDUCATION 'COMMISSAR' EYES TEXTBOOKS

The federal education "commissar" now has his eyes on the nation's textbooks. In Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 he has the modus operandi to do the job-withholding federal funds. Hearings held recently before the Labor and Education Committee of the House established beyond the doubt the intent of Democratic ullra-liberals to take federal control of school textbooks. Four members of the committee, including its chairman, Representative Adam Clayton Powell, openly urged the Commissioner of the United States office of Education to get on with the business of putting federally approved textbooks in the nation's schools. A candid Congresswoman suggested this could be done by the direct federal purchase of textbooks! The hearings ostensibly were held to investigate whether textbooks and library materials in public schools fail to give proper treatment to minority groups. Predictably, the hearings quickly got off the track. Powell switched the subject and soon was telling United States Commissioner of Education Harold Howe II that he (Powell) believed Howe already has authority to compel school authorities to rewrite textbooks. Howe, the far-out liberal who has used the "guideline" technique to expand Office of Education power in enforcing school integration far beyond the intent of the 1964 law, first told committee members his office doesn't have the power to dictate textbook content. Then, contradicting himself, he added, "I do not intend to state that we have no power." When Howe spoke of the "overwhelming need" for Negro students to have school books "to which they can be related," members of the committee said they wanted him to have power to see that schools accept the kind of textbooks Howe thinks best. They urged that he be given the same blackjack he now has to bludgeon local school districts into complying with integration "guidelines," the withholding of federal aid. This brazen move to invade and take over the right of local schools to select their own textbooks somehow has gone virtually unnoticed. Instead of standing up to this damnable intrusion, Washington seems cheering on commissars of a federal education monolith. Before he went into his sidestep and fancy broken路field running, Commissioner Howe was right when he said, "Such a power is wholly inconsistent with the concept of democracy as we know it." Having said that, he should have buttoned his lip.

R.W. Bro. Haskell Holman, Grand Orator Benediction ADDRESS OF THE GRAND ORATOR To the Most J;VorshifJful Grand Lodge, A.F. and A.M. Of Missow'i:

Thank you, Most lVorshipful Grand Master. distinguished guests, brethren, ladies and gentlemen, It is a great honor for me to be here tonight as your Grand Orator-as yOll know-a wholly undeserved honor but a greatly appreciated honor. I am sure you have heard this sentiment expressed by many, all much more eloquently, but I do not believe ever more sincerely. In reading the very eloquent and thought provoking remarks of my immediate predecessor, Grand Orator Roy W. Harper, I could not forgct his closing question. "Arc you a good citizen?" I am sure that each of you is, .and I sincerely hope I am, a good citizen in the accepted sense of the term. I am confident that each of you do your duty as it is taught in OUr great order-duty to God-duty to country-duty to your fellowman-and duty to yourself. These constitute good citizenship, But, is this sufficient for us? No, I am sure that mere good citizenship is not sufficient for you-you are expected to be excellent citizens always doing more than just what is expected of vou. , The very nature of our great organization demands always our very best. I would like to discuss each of the four points of our duty as parts of excellent citizenship. First, and I believe always of first importance, is our duty to the Supreme Being. 'Ve require such belief in God as a prerequisite; therefore, we must expend every effort in shoring up our faiths and the faiths of our fellowmen.

In these days when we frequently see the open .encouragement of communistic atheism in our country, we must exert every effort against this materialistic attitude. This reawakening of spiritual values must not only be brought about by alerting and revitalizing the sense of such spiritual values in adults, but must by example and teaching be included in the minds and hearts of our young people. Our young people today are very powerful and a fast growing group. They are wonderful but they must have proper training and leadership. \Vith such training and leadership they will lead our country to new heights of reliance and belief in the Supreme Architect of the Universe. Each of you can contribute much to this onward and upward movement by example and active participation in such worthy objectives. You know you have this unswerving faith and belief in the Creat Ruler of all, but do our actions and statements confirm this. I believe that our great organization and each of us as members owe it to our great fraternity and to ourselves to give more thought and put renewed vigor in our activities which increase spiritual values. There are many ways in which we can indicate our greater interest in spiritual values and I am sure that each of you have much greater insight in how you can be doing certain activities to become not good citizens but excellent citizens. The discussions of our duties in this field of duty to God is infinite in its facets and I am wholly inadequate to attempt to advise you and your rededication to the Supreme Being will be much more beneficial when you have decided how best you can contribute more and more to this end. Second, I would like to mention duty of country. Of course, each of these duties overlap and intertwine to form this great privilege of citizenship in this great country of ours. Every day I live-every day I travel-I think how fortunate we are in being citizens of our wonderful United States of America. I am sure when we stop and think we all feel this way but all too often in our modern world we move so swiftly on our way with our constant preoccupation with major and minor problems that we do not stop and think how fortunate we are to be citizens of a free country in a world beset with great problems-probably greater problems than ever existed in our world before because now with the powerful nuclear weapons in the world today, we truly have the power to totally destroy our world. Our duty to our country is great and if we do not respond with our full ability, the road ahead is very difficult. We must love our country. ''''e must truly believe in our way of life and be willing to sacrifice to preserve it. To truly appreciate our great country we must know its wonderful history and know about the great men and women who made this country great. Many of these great leaders were members of our great fraternity. This is no accident since I truly believe our very teachings make it necessary for us to exemplify our true love of country and perform our duties as excellent citizens. This sense of duty to country called patriotism must always be taught to succeeding generations lest they forget and lose our great heritage. It must be taught at home and must be taught in the schools at all levels, grade schools, high schools, colleges and universities. \Ve as members of our great fraternity can and do, and should do, much to further patriotism and love of country by speaking up and by example. There are many ways to speak up and show your love of country and countless ways to show your patriotism. I sincerely believe that it is your duty to your country to have a part in every election. You should exercise your right to vote at every opportunity at every level.


138

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1966

When informed people exercise this great privilege to vote in sufficient numbers our great country is safe' both from without and from within. You are patriotic Americans. Show it at every opportunity and be the excellent citizens you are. The third duty is our duty to our neighbors-these are all our fellowmen. Here, as I have said before, all of these duties are intertwined because remember the greatest of all said "In as much as ye did it for one of them, ye did it for me." Duties to our fellowman are many and I am sure you perform them as good citizens, but I believe you have special duties as excellent citizens to participate in all community affairs. Many of you are leaders in civic, cultural, educational and social organizations. This truly is wonderful but even those of us who cannot always be leaders can join and participate in these great organizations and groups. Your duty to your fellowman is an unceasing obligation and I am sure you perform this duty well even if at times it seems difficult. The last duty is, of course, your duty to yourself. It is right and just that we place thoughts of ourselves last but this is also a truly important duty but one which becomes much easier if we have performed to the very best of our abilities our duties to God, to our country and to our fellowmen. Our duty to ourselves, I believe, is primarily the duty to do our other duties not to the best of our abilities but by special efforts to perform them just a little better than we thought possible. Remembering always our solemn obligations as members of this great fraternity, I am sure each of you will continue to be not just good citizens but excellent citizens.

CALLED TO LABOR

The Grand Lodge was called to labor at 9:00 a.m. Prayer was offered by R.W. Bro. Herbert E. Duncan, Grand Chaplain. REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MASONIC BOARDS OF RELIEF

R.W. Bro. Elvin K. Luff, chairman, presented the report of the committee on Masonic Boards of Relief, and moved its adoption. Motion seconded and carried, and the report is as follows: To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Missouri: BRETHREN: Reports of the Activity and the Financial Statements were received from all General Boards of Relief except Sedalia. The attention of all Lodges is called to this responsibility which is a direction authorized by Section 23.020 of the General Provisions of the By-Laws. The activity of most Boards has been very low this past year and the expenditures likewise were low. Copies of the reports received by this Committee are included as a part of this report. The report of the Masonic Employment Bureau of St. Louis and S1. Louis County is also included in this report and should be thoroughly studied by the路 affected Lodges. Several times since 1962, when the activities of the Employment Bureau were thoroughly investigated on instruction of the Grand Master, the attention of the affected Lodges has been called by this Committee to the cost and benefits derived from the operation of the Bureau. This Committee has never been informed of any action having been taken by the Lodges to correct the situations of which many complain. It is a recommendation of this Committee that the Lodges of S1. Louis and 51. Louis County be directed to express themselves on this subject as provided in Sec. 23.030 of the amended General Provisions of 1962. . It is suggested that problems of such Boards and Bureaus do not occur when all Lodge representatives participate in the activities. Respectfully submitted, ELVIN K. LUFF, Chairman, ELVIS R. POfF.

PAUL PRIESTLEY,

Secretary. St. Louis and St. l.ouis County To the Most WorshiPful Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Missouri: The activities of the Board have been about the same as in the four previous years. For the first time in the history of this Board we have received an unsolicited gift of over $6,000 from the Moehlenkamp estate. 'We are very thankful for this generous gift, as it will make unnecessary any assessments against the Lodges of the 33rd and 57th districts for several years. Some sick-room equipment has been bought and the present one kept in good repair. The free loan of this equipment to the members of our Lodges is mostly very much appreciated. The activities and financial reports are enclosed on separate sheets. Twelve meetings were held with Lodge delegates on the first Saturday of each month. The attendance at these meetings was good, but could and should, in our opinion, be much better. For the members who have actively participated and for all the Board members it has been a pleasure to serve the fraternity once more during the past year. Fraternally yours, WILLI W.

Masonic Employment Bureau To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, A.F. 6- A.M. of Missoud: The Masonic Employment Bureau of St. Louis and St. Louis County, herewith presents the following report of its activities, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1966. This has been another fine year for many employment opportunities through this office. We were not able to fill all the job requests which we received due primarily to lack of qualified applicants. Our job requests exceeded our registrations for employment by about 2.5 to I. Our referrals per placement recorded run

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

about 3.5 to 1. So you can readily see how many people we are dealing wit.h t.o get one placement. The employers t.oday demand higher level of education, experience and intelligence than ever before. However, we are appreciative of t.he fact that we did place some 200 men, women, boys and girls in good paying jobs and assisted some 50 to 60 students who were seeking summer employment. This in itself is quite an experience. Both to us and to them. Many fine young men and women, potential Masons and Eastern Stars, have some exposure to Freemasonry at work here in this office. In April each year we mail some 300 letters to a select group of our employer clientele seeking employment for our boys and girls through the summer months. We are most grateful to our Masonic employers who respond to our request. Our hope from year to year is to acquaint our people with the Employment Bureau News, mailed to all Masonic Lodges and higher bodies of Freemasonry in the 33rd and 57th Masonic Districts, telling them of the free service offered through the Masonic Employment Bureau, Freemasonry's Most Practical Agency.

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON GEORGE WASHINGTON MASONIC NATIONAL MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION

M.W. Bro. Morris E. Ewing-, chairman, presented the report of the Georg-e Washington Masonic Nation~l Memorial Association, and moved that it be received. Motion seconded and carried, and the report is as follows: It is a very interesting fact that since time immemorial man has had a very strong urge not only for recording what was around him but to collect those articles that give us some idea of the time, the age and the civilization in which he lived. This desire to record so that there may be something for posterity enables us to measure the progress of mankind while we are the trustees of our country. ""'hen we think of this memorial we think of Washington as a soldier. 'Ve think of him as a farmer. 'Ve think of him as a statesman and perhaps we think more of him as one of those who framed that great document which has been copied by peoples all over the globe and which is the foundation of our freedom and the essence of which is the freedom, the dignity and divinity of the individual man. He did a noble and superb job of starting this great Republic. That was perhaps his finest attainment. Not only a soldier, not only a farmer. not only an outstanding citizen, but one who nobly had the leading role of forming the great government under which we live. We should now be the keepers of this America but right behind us is another generation and after it another. Soon we march into infinity and leave the responsibility of trusteeship to the generation that comes after us. It may be worse than tragic if any generation fails to keep unsullied and untarnished and unimpaired the Republic which Washington and his fellow workers left us as a direct legacy. He was a nohle personage in a country that requires no titles of nobility. It is not necessary. His personality and what he left proclaims his mobility. He stood to lose more than any man in the colonies, more in material goods, more in dignity, more in position, yet he gave his heart and hand for the cause of freedom and the founding of the Republic. And no matter what the indignities and castigations were, he held steadily to this course until the job was done.

BROTHER UTZ: Most Worshipful Grand Master, I think it is not proper for this Grand Lodge to take the bequest of a Brother and allocate it to a particular fund, in effect for the celebration of the Sesquicentennial. There is money in the general fund of the Grand Lodge and the Grand Lodge can appropriate from the general funds any proper amount that it sees fit. I don't think you are going to enhance the feeling of people leaving bequests to this Grand Lodge if you arbitrarily take a particular bequest and set it aside for the celebration of the Sesquicentennial. I doubt the wisdom of using that particular money in that particular way. Therefore I am opposed to it. (There were no further comments.) GRAND MASTER: Brethren, you have heard the motion as stated and you have heard the discussion pertaining to the same. Are you ready for the question? VOICES: Question. GRAND MASTER: As many as are in favor of the motion will make known by the voting sign of the Order. (Show of hands.) GRAND MASTER: Contrary minded? (Show of hands.)

GRAND MASTER: The motion fails. The Grand Master, not being able to speak on the motion, thinks you have made an excellent decision. R.W. BROTHER GERSHENSON: I hope the Grand Lodge understands we merely approve the form of the resolution. We take no position with reference to it. Most Worshipful Grand Master, this morning there was presented to me a resolution signed by five Brethren with reference to the Sesquicentennial Committee. We haven't had an opportunity to study it and I would like to move that this matter be referred by the incoming Grand Master to refer this particular resolution to the Jurisprudence Committee. Motion seconded and carried. Brother Gershenson, Most Worshipful Grand Master, I now move that the entire report be approved in its entirety. Motion seconded and carried. GRAND MASTER: R.W. Brother Gershenson, may I congratulate you and your committee on the fine work you have done for me and for the Grand Lodge. To tfie Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Missouri: BRETHREN: DISPENSATrONS

There were various dispensations issued by the Grand Master during the year. A list thereof is in the Grand Secretary's report. Each of these, as we see it, was within the discretion of the Grand Master. Our recommendation is that each of them be approved. With reference to the dispensations denied, these likewise are within the sound discretion of the Grand Master. We recommend that the denial thereof be approved. HEALING

Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446, through proper channels, requested Eola Lodge No. 207 of Orlando, Florida, to instruct and examine Entered Apprentice Louis M. Moeck on the "first degree" after which it would be necessary for him to petition to receive the remaining degrees. Eola Lodge No. 207 instructed, examined and conferred the remaining degrees without informing Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446 until after Mr. Moeck had received said degrees. Knowing of no change in the character of Louis M. Moeck since he was first elected, the Grand Master declared him healed and a member of Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446 in good standing. This action is approved by the Committee as being within the discretion of the Grand Master, as provided by Section 13.140 of the Grand Lodge By-Laws. II

Belle Lodge No. 373 of Missouri requested Olney Lodge No. 140 of Illinois to confer the three degrees on Melvin B. Smith, and this was done accordingly under Illinois law. Illinois law permits the conferring of degrees in less than four weeks. Brother Smith received his third degree II days after his second, which was legal under Illinois law and procedure. It was not the fault of Brother Smith, so the Grand Master declared him healed and a Master Mason in good standing.


148

PROCEEDI:'IJ'GS OF THE

1966

This action is approved by the Committee as being within the discretion of the Grand Master, as provided by Section 13.140 of the Grand Lodge By-Laws. DECISIONS

The question was raised as to how many letters a secretary must write to the Lodges having concurrent jurisdiction in and around Kansas City to receive a waiver of jurisdiction on a petitioner who lives in that territory when the Lodge requesting the waiver is outside of that territory. The Grand Master ruled that it would be necessary to write a letter to the Lodge whose hall is nearest the place where the petitioner lives; or if two or more Lodges met in that hall, only the consent of the oldest Lodge is required. It is probably not a literal compliance with Section 13.020, but it appears that actually each Lodge having jurisdiction should have notice. We wiII consider this as a healing order under Section 13.140, which is discretionary with the Grand Master, and as such we approve the action of the Grand Master in this particular case. II

The question was raised as to whether a Brother who had been suspended for a number of years could pay his dues for the years missed and be eligible to receive a 50-year pin. The Grand Master ruled that the back dues could not be paid for the years under suspension in order to make him eligible to receive said pin, This action is approved as being in conformity with standing resolution on 50year buttons as provided on page lOS of the Constitution and By-Laws. III

The question was raised as to whether a custodian of a Lodge need be a member of the Lodge or a resident of the town where he was employed as a custodian of said Lodge. The Grand Master ruled that there was nothing to prevent the Lorlge hiring whom they pleased for a custodian. This is approved as being within the discretion of the Grand Master. IV

A Brother requested that his petition for affiliation be withdrawn after being presented and a Committee appointed. The Grand Master ruled that a petition for affiliation should be treated as a petition for the degrees and therefore could not be withdrawn. This is approved as being in conformity with'Sections 13.010 and 13.060 of the Grand Lodge By-Laws. v The question was raised as to whether a proficiency examination given at a special Communication called for the purpose of conferring the First Degree was legal and was ruled on in the following manner: Section 7.070 of the Grand Lodge By-Laws states that Degrees may be conferred, candidates examined, the ceremonial observances conducted, so therefore the proficiency examination was legal. This action is approved as being in conformity with Section 7.070 of the Grand Lodge By-Laws. VI

The Grand Master has referred to this Committee the matter of the appeal of 'Vestport Lodge No. 340, A.F. & A.M. vs Roben H. Reid. By reason of the state of


1966

the record the Committee recommends that the incoming Grand Master refer the file in this case to the Committee on Appeals and Grievances for its consideration. PROPOSED Al\IFND\1'FNTS OF BY-LAWS SECTION

2.010

The proposed amendment to the above section was offered at the 1965 Communication and referred to the Jurisprudence Committee, said proposed amendment reading as follows: Section 2.010 GRAND MASTER. Repeal and reenact sub-section (m) to read as follows: (m) He receives traveling, office, stenographic, clerical and other expenses of $5,400.00 a year, to be remitted to him in equal monthly installments. At the option of the Grand Master, the allowance is paid to him on his submission of monthly itemized accounts of his expenses, cumulatively not in excess of $150.00 per month for the portion of the year which has elapsed. Proposed amendment for action in 1966. This proposed action is approved. Section 2.050. GRAND LECTURER. Repeal and reenact sub-section (d) to read as follows: (d) Receives for his salary $8,400 a year payable monthly, and traveling expenses not exceeding $4,800.00 a year. He submits an itemized statement of his expenses monthly, to be paid on approval of the Grand Master. This proposed amendment is approved. Section 13.020. NOTIFICATION TO OTHER LODGES. Promptly after a lodge receives any petition, other than for restoration, if one, hut not more than three, other lodges also have jurisdiction of the place of residence of the petitioner, the secretary of the lodge sends written notice to each such lodge. Promptly after a lodge receives a petition for restoration, or after any rejection, suspension, expulsion or reinstatement, the secretary of the lodge sends written notice to each lodge which has jurisdiction over the place of residence of the petitioner or member. Receipt of the notice is announced at the first stated communication of the receiving lodge thereafter, and it is read in full unless otherwise ordered by the Master. The notice is open to inspection by any Master Mason of the lodge. This proposed action is approved. Section 13.140. HEALING. The amendment was offered to the Grand Lodge at its 1964 Communication reading as follows: Every Freemason, who has received three degrees from a subordinate lodge of Missouri and who has been recognized or accepted as a Master Mason and has been issued a dues card by his lodge for five consecutive years, shall be conclusively presumed to have received his three degrees regularly and legally. At the 1965 Communication a substitute proposed amendment was offered by the Jurisprudence Committee, reading as follows: Section 13.140. HEALING. When it appears to the satisfaction of the Grand Master that any degree has been irregularly or illegally conferred by, or for, any Missouri Lodge, on any candidate without the fault of the candidate, the Grand Master may cause the candidate to be healed; provided, however that anyone who has so received the three degrees from a subordinate Lodge of Missouri, and who has been recognized or accepted as a Master Mason and has been issued a dues card by his Lodge for five consecutive years, shall be conclusively presumed to have received his three degrees regularly and legally. The Grand Master may ?rder a hearing to develop

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

the facts. This section does not alter the law relative to Masonic offenses. The candidate is not required to pay a fee for being healed. The Committee has carefully considered this matter since its referral to it at the 1965 Communication and we move and recommend the adoption of the 1965 substitute amendment. At the 1965 Grand Lodge session the following amendment was proposed: Section 15.020. CONFERRING DEGREES Amend the first sentence of the section to read as follows: The first sections of the first and second degrees, and the first and second sections of the third degree can be conferred on more than one candidate at the same lime. We disapprove this proposed amendment because we do not feel it is desirable to confer degrees in classes. Section 16.110. DUAL MEMBERSHIP. Amend the first sentence of the section to read as follows: A member of a Missouri Lodge may hold membership in another lodge at the same time. ,"Ve disapprove this proposed amendment as being wholly undesirable. Section 21.050. CONSENT BY ANOTHER LODGE. Repeal and reenact Section to read as follows: The lodge desiring consent of another lodge under Section 21.050 must request the consent in writing directed to the Secretary. If one, but not more than three other lodges also have jurisdiction of the place of residence of the petitioner, notice of the request must be given to all such other lodges at least two weeks before the petition is received. Unless a response refusing the consent, or asking a specified additional period for consideration of the request, is received by the requesting lodge within six weeks from the date of mailing of the request, the consent is presumed to have been given. This proposed amendment is approved. PROPOSED RESOLUTION. (For Action in 1966) From the amount received by the Grand Lodge from the Estate of Roy F. ;\lewman, deceased, and income thereon, $50,000.00 is set aside for appropriation by action of the Grand Lodge from time to time for the purpose in connection with the celebration of the Sesquicentennial of the Grand Lodge, as recommended from time to time by the special Committee on Sesquicentennial. 'Vith the approval of the Grand Master not to exceed $2,000.00 may be expended in each Grand Lodge fiscal year preceding the celebration, without further action of the Grand Lodge. The form of the proposed resolution is approved. The allocation of funds for this Committee is completely within the discretion of the Grand Lodge. Resolution disapproved. CLAUDE T. WOOD, WILLIAM

GRAND MASTER: Is the Chairman of the Jurisprudence Committee still present? (No response.) GRAND MASTER: Is a member of the Jurisprudence Committee present? (Bro. Roy W. McGhee responds.) GRAND MASTER: Would you come up here to answer a technical question. Brethren, the question has arisen insofar as the Report of the Jurisprudence Committee was concerned. I have an attorney on my right and another one on my left over there. One of them wonders whether the Report of the Jurisprudence Committee was approved completely. Not being a lawyer and not being bothered at all with these legal questions, I would entertain a motion that it was the intent of this Grand Lodge to adopt those sections and amendments that were so voted and reject those that were voted down. R.W. Bro. William H. Chapman: I so move. Said motion was seconded and carried. APPOINTMENTS

INSTALLATION

The hour for installation having arrived, M.W. Bro. Vanlandingham stated that M.W. Bro. Frank P. Briggs act as Grand Master for the installation; M.W. Bro. H~rold Grauel, Grand Marshal, and M.W. Bro. Harold Jayne as Grand Chaplain, and pursuant to this request they installed the officers. PRESENTATIONS

M.vV. Bro. Morrison presented the Apron, and the Jewel was presented by M.W. Bro. Richard O. Rumer. Gold identification card was presented by Grand Secretary. A gift was presented by the Square Club. A check for three hundred dollars was presented by the Worshipful Master of Missouri Lodge No. l. GRAND MASTER MURRAY: Brethren, I guess the time has come when we are going to have to do some work now. In the past year Basey has done all the work and I haven't had to do very much. Before we close this Grand Lodge I would like to tell you that I have taken it up with the other Senior Officers and according to the By-Laws we may do this: Our Grand Lodge session next year will be on Monday and Tuesday. Brethren, maybe I ought to say a few words to you Brethren out in the seats. Many of you have come to me and asked me to attend your meetings. I want to attend all of them I can. J will assure you that if there is a meeting in the City of St. Louis or there is a meeting out here 50 or 100 miles from St. Louis, I consider that Lodge to be more important than this big Lodge here, because you, I know, would like to have the Grand Master come out. Of course, I won't be able to come to all your Lodges, because there are 590 Lodges and there are only 365 days in the year, but I will do as much as I can. . M.W. BRO. ARONSON: Most vVorshipful Grand Master, what I have to say is not unimportant, but I think I can be heard from here. Arising from the necessary change in our custom is the fact that a Grand Master who retires from office goes out quietly without the recognition that he deserves after a tour of many years of duty, climaxed by one year of exceptionally hard and important duties to the Grand Lodge. Before we conclude I would like to move that the Brethren here assembled extend their appreciation to Most Worshipful Brother A. Basey Vanlandingham by a rising vote of thanks and compliment for his splendid service to us during the year just closed. Motion seconded and carried (applause).
