On behalf of the Grand Lodge, I extend a special welcome to our guests from other jurisdictions and to the leaders of all the Masonic bodies in Missouri. It is also my pleasure to recognize the District Deputy Grand Masters

and Grand Lecturers. These brothers are willing to be of service and to go that extra mile. I certainly appreciate their support and assistance during the past year.

STATE OF THE CRAFT As has been the case for approximately the last 20 years, there is good news and there is bad news. Our informal survey reflects a membership with an average age of over 62 years and our total membership continues to decline at almost 2,000 members per year. Only a few lodges show a modest gain; most are holding their own; but large numbers are being lost in the metropolitan areas. The various programs we have adopted over the last few years have not solved our serious decline - one which will become critical as the mortality tables take their toll and our ranks are seriously thinned. I believe several positive things have occurred over the recent past. First of all, the problems are being openly and publicly discussed. Second, many lodges are following the suggestions of the Education Committee and the Public Relations Committee and are trying to develop better leadership, more programs of interest and ac'tivities that involve the whole family. They are becoming involved in community activities and are again being recognized as the positive moral force they have always been. Thirdly, the Grand Lodge Officer line has agreed that the time has come to seek outside professional advice and counsel. With the three other members of the Long Range Planning Committee, they hope to develop the necessary insight into what is this Fraternity's ailment and adopt a cure - positive solutions that will continue for the next eight years. This may mean change that some disagree with; it may mean that the society we know today will force us to follow - but hopefully lead - in order to survive. I urge your support of this undertaking. I am firmly convinced, unless we do something, that we will be, by the year 2000, the second Odd Fellows.

AREA MEETINGS Combined into the Area Meeting was the Lodge Education Officer program. The number of meetings was also reduced to six from what had grown to over 20. This was done both as an economy measure and in an effort to have the programs presented before December. I believe the change and the meetings were a success. These meetings still offer an excellent opportunity for disseminating and exchanging ideas and programs and for the leaders in Missouri Masonry to meet at the local level. Not to be overlooked were the participants' comments on the excellent brunch which preceded each meeting.

GRANDLODGEO~CERS

The Grand Lodge of Missouri is indeed fortunate to be served by a number of dedicated and outstanding men in the next several years. I look forward to many years ofleadership we will all be proud of. Your Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Brother Robert D. Jenkins, has actively participated in every decision and action taken this year. His support and help I greatly appreciate. To your Grand Secretary, R. W. Brother Terry C. Alexander, and his staff, go my deepest gratitude. They truly allowed me to be able to be Grand Master.

NECROLOGY We are always saddened by the report of the Committee on Necrology as more and more of our Brothers are called to the Grand Lodge on High. I have asked the Chairman of the Committee, M.W. Brother Wes Cook, for his report and remarks.

SPECIAL EVENTS The Grand Master's breakfast in St. Louis is truly outstanding and an inspiring occasion. The speaker this year was a young Mason who I believe will influence this State and our Country for rpany years to come Secretary. of State, Brother Roy D. Blunt. Perseverance Lodge's Grand Master's breakfast at Louisiana is another unique event. For the 30th year, Lodge opened at 4:00 a.m., I was received and breakfast was served. The Grand Master's breakfast in Kansas City is also becoming an annual event. May it continue to grow and prosper. A Masonic First was held in Springfield, May 13-14, 1988. The Grand Lodge Officers conferred the Third Degree at Abou Ben Adhem Shrine on Friday evening. This was followed by a one-day Scottish Rite Reunion and a Shrine Ceremonial on Saturday. It was a good Masonic weekend for Southwest Missouri.

MASONIC FAMILY In Missouri, the Grand Lodge enjoys excellent relationships with all our Masonic-affiliated organizations. I have been honored to have candidate classes dedicated to or named for the Grand Master by the Shrine and Scottish Rite. I have been a special guest at numerous other meetings of the Eastern Star, York Rite, DeMolay and others. The Office of Grand Master, as the leader of the Masonic Fraternity, is still respected in Missouri. I must call to your attention a potential for those harmonious relations to be disturbed. In 1987, the Imperial Council of the Shrine adopted a by-law which al-


12

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1988

lows a Mason to appeal his loss of Shrine membership when he is suspended or expelled from a lodge for any reason other than non payment of dues. This action caused several Grand Lodges and the Conference of Grand Masters to issue resolutions urging the Shrine to rescind the by-law and indicating additional measures would be taken if it was not repealed. No edict was issued by me and only the Grand Master of Wisc. and I did not sign the Grand Masters Conference resolution. My thought was that this would nQt be a problem in Missouri and did not represent a threat to Masonic authority in Missouri. At any rate, it was a matter to deal with if and when a situation actually arose. At the 1988 Imperial Session there were, I think, six appeals under this by-law. The Shrine Jurisprudence Committee recommended none be allowed. The delegates - Masons - overruled the Committee on one. In that case, the member belonged in one State and now lives in another where he is a beer distributor. The Grand Lodge in the State where he held membership, prohibited their members from engaging. in the sale of alcohol and expelled. The Grand Lodge where he now lives has no such prohibition. Net result, we now have an ex-Mason who still belongs to the Shrine. I do not know what the Grand Lodge, referred to above, may elect to do in regard to the over-ruling of its legal action. I do think the matter points out that a Grand Lodge needs to be sure that the by-laws reflect the majority view. The next Masonic problem at the 1988 Imperial Session occurred when a Grand Master issued an edict ordering Masons in his jurisdiction to refrain from attending or having anything to do with a certain Shrine Temple. Assuming just cause, that is his business. But to serve that edict on the Imperial Potentate on the reviewing stand while he watched the day parade and on the first day of his session, I believe, was an insult and an affront to a brother. The action certainly did not endear the Grand Masters to our hosts. An attempt to repeal the "appeal" by-law was tabled by a large voice vote. Surprisingly, a vote to sever any Masonic connection failed (287 for and 530 against). What did pass, retroactive to 1980, was a by-law which permits Shriners to remain members in any State where a Grand Lodge takes action to suppress or proscribe the Shrine. That passed 728 to 97. It permits the Imperial Potentate to certify when the by-law applies. I only point out these matters for your information and so there may be informed discussions. I hope cooler heads and our mutual interests will prevail. These "knee-jerk" resolutions, edicts and by-laws only add fuel to the fire. As far as I am concerned, they rise almost to the level of some of the proposed, ridiculous gun control laws. I have often said we are our worst enemy or as Pogo, from the cornie page said, we captured the enemy and found they were us. One personal experience - a number of years ago, the Master of my Lodge was denied membership in the White Shrine of Jerusalem~ That brother has since served for many years as his lodge's candidate instructor; has been a D.D.G.M.; was recognized as the outstanding York Rite

Mason in Missouri; belongs and works in many bodies; and lives Masonry every day better than most of us. My point is, in some Grand Lodge jurisdictions such misuse of the ballot box has caused legislation to be passed providing that no Masonic organization may deny membership to a Master Mason until charges are filed and he is expelled by his lodge. So much for my soap box. DECISIONS A St. Louis area lodge rejected two petitions. Investigation revealed a member present was not of sound mind and no reason warranted the rejections. I ordered the ballot set aside and a new ballot taken pursuant to Section 14.100 (which resulted in election). A Kansas City area lodge was directed by PGM Kinkead to file charges against a member who had entered a guilty plea to a felony. Thinking this was done, I appointed a Trial Commission only to discover the charge was never filed. I ordered the charge filed. The lodge was directed to strictly comply with the Trial Code and should the member not plead guilty and request expulsion, I have re-appointed the Trial Commission. Two St. Louis area lodges are planning to consolidate and requested they be allowed to· adopt a completely new lodge name. I ,uled that Section 7.200 woul~ not allow a completely new name. A lodge in the St. Joseph area has not reported the election of officers nor held a meeting in two years. I advised the lodge unless they took appropriate action, I would arrest their Charter on September 12, 1988, pursuant to Section 2.010 (b). DISPENSATIONS· HEALING ORDERS • CONSENTS AND PERMISSIONS These are reported and included in the Grand Secretary's report. CONCLUSION I am sure every Grand Master leaves office with a certain sense offrustration - there is never enough time to do everything you should or would like to do. I have tried to do my best. I have tried to carry out the duties of an office which comes to few and is an honor ever to be mine. lowe so much to so many. In trying to recognize everyone who worked so hard and went that extra mile, I know I will miss some. To my lodge, Solomon No. 271, and its members, for the support you have given me - thank you. The opportunity to be Master of your lodge can only be second to the Masonic honor of serving as Grand Master. To the Grand Lodge elective Officers and the other members of the line, thank you for your support, your advice, your hard work and your friendship. I believe we have been a good team. To the other Grand Lodge Officials, committee members, masters, officers and members who work so hard for Masonry and for our future, I can-

not express or explain my appreciation. To P.G.M. Charles Scheurich and his Committee for Distinguished Guests, my thanks for making this Communication a success; and just "thank you Charlie" for all you have done. To P.G.M. Dr. J. Edward Blinn, I will never forget what you got me into - seriously, thank you for your confidence. To all of the members of this Grand Lodge, I am deeply proud you gave me this opportunity to serve you. I am far more proud of you for responding to service in your communities and participating as partners in our progress. I know you will respond to the challenges of tomorrow. Brethren, I leave you to work for the future. We must rethink our 19th Century image and without changing our teachings or philosophies, we must adopt to today's society. Mter 167 years, I believe we stand at a threshold. The spirit which made Freemasonry great must be reinstilled. Freemasonry's best is yet to come. Fraternally, K. MCGUIRE, JR. Grand Master

REPORT OF THE COMMIITEE ON NECROLOGY M.W. Brother Lewis C. Wes Cook, Chairman, moved that the Report of the Committee on Necrology be received and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and approved by vote of the Grand Lodge. To the Grand Lodge, AF & A.M. ofthe State ofMissouri:

A young man who makes his living sailing the great oceans recently wrote to us about the mysterious disappearance of a friend, another sailboat captain. He wrote: "I know that no matter who you are, or how experienced, that there is always the possibility of a situation that cannot be dealt with successfully. All of us will die, sometime, somewhere. The bad part is just the timing and circumstances, and, perhaps the greatest tragedy of all is the folk who will not be missed or remembered." We have lost 2,340 of our members in the last year, some, I am sure,

because of situations that could not be dealt with successfully. But because of the bond that we share from having knelt at an altar and accepted the vows of a Mason, each of these brethren should be, and will be missed and remembered. We ask each of you to join with us in remembering. Speak out loud the name of brethren lost this last year who were at one time or another a part of your Masonic life; who touched your life or the lives of brethren of your acquaintance. Speak out loud the names of those brethren we have lost that you admired and held in high esteem, but also remember each and every Brother because, as the Tyler's Toast reminds us: "The Mason feels the noble treuth The Scottish peasant told; The rank is but the guinea stamp, The man himselfs the gold. We meet the rich and poor alike, And equal rights maintain -Happy to meet, sorry to part, Happy to meet again." Now, let us speak their names aloud. Share them with your seatmates and in turn share the names that he recalls. Let this hall ring out in a celebration of those who have gone before us. Let this hall ring out with our voices in thanksgiving for each of their contributions as men and as Masons. (The Grand Lodge was called up and with all of the brethren standing, they participated for a brief period in sharing the names of departed brethren.) Many of these brethren also served Grand Lodge.

service to his church, his community, state and nation. In his address to Grand Lodge in 1952, Most Worshipful Brother Ferguson said: "We, as Freemasons, should constantly remind ourselves that it is not our purpose to make Freemasonry just a bigger and better organization, but to try and make some definite contribution to socieity as a whole. One of the greatest problems in Masonry then is to find more ways to reduce the lofty principles of our Craft to the problems of everyday life." Most Worshipful Bro. Ferguson was born Oct. 10, 1905 and died Aug. 26, 1988. Masonic services were conducted by Most Worshipful Bro. Charles E. Scheurich on Aug. 29, 1988. Conclusion Each of the 2,340 Brethren whose lives we honor and celebrate today is here with us if we listen to the voices of our souls. They touched us then. They touch us now. That "Old 'I)rler" reminds us: "We meet as Masons, free and true; And when our task is done A merry song or social glass Is not unduly won. And only at our farewell pledge Is pleasure tinged with pain -Happy to meet, sorry to part, Happy to meet again"

REMARKS BY GRAND MASTER

M.W. Grand Master McGuire recognized the presence of R.W. Brother Henry W. Fox, present secretary of Temple Lodge No. 299, who had just celebrated his ninetieth birthday. M.W. Grand Master McGuire brought to the attention of the Grand Lodge that on May 13 & 14, 1988 a first for southwest Missouri occurred. The Grand Lodge officers conferred the Degree of Master Mason on Friday evening, May 13, 1988. On Saturday, May 14, 1988 the Scottish Rite Valley of Joplin performed a one day reunion and Abou Ben Adhem Temple, Oasis of Springfield, conducted a "Cold Sands" ceremony. M.W. Grand Master McGuire spoke to the Grand Lodge session concerning the Shrine By-Laws which allow a member to retain membership after certain suspensions from Masonic Lodges. Grand Master McGuire expressed the opinion that we should look for ways to cooperate instead of trying to "shoot ourselves in the foot." R.W. Deputy Grand Master Robert D. Jenkins: "Brethren, the Grand Master's Address will be received and referred to the Grand Lodge Com-


PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1988 20 mittee on the Grand Master's Address, M.W. Brother P. Vincent Kinkead, Chairman."

REPORT OF TIlE GRAND LECTURER R.W. Brother Stanton T. Brown moved that the Report of the Grand Lecturer, as printed in the Booklet, "Reports of Officers and Committees" be accepted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded. By vote of the Grand Lodge, the Report of the Grand Lecturer was accepted.

To the Grand Lodge ofMissouri, AR and A.M.: In obedience to the duties enjoined upon me as your Grand Lecturer and as required by the Constitution and By-Laws of the Grand Lodge, I herewith submit my 16th annual report. One of the duties of the Grand Lecturer is to inform the Grand Lodge by way of written report of the gen路 erl condition of the ritualistic work and other matters of interest connected with that office. As a matter of record, this report is important, for by it and those presented in years past by this and other Grand Lecturers, we are able to follow the progress of the ritualistic skills of the Brethren. The condition of the ritual statewide is excellent. Most of the lodges are able to conduct their work in an acceptable manner. However, from the reports of the District Deputy Grand Lecturers we find year after year the same lodges unwilling to ask for help from the Lecturer to hold old a school of instruction -- which results in poor performance and doubtful identification as a Masonic Lodge. Somehow we must change this direction. There should be pride in expressing Masonic principles and the beauty of the work. It is my hope that consolidation will not become necessary and that with the assistance of the District Deputy Grand Lecturer and the lodge brethren, we can in the coming year assist these lodges in attaining sufficient proficiency to do their work acceptably. I am indebted to the District Deputy Grand Lecturers; those devoted brethren who give without renumeration of their time and talents in behalf of the Grand Lodge and more especially to the Grand Lecturer. Few of us realize the hours spent and the miles traveled by these unselfish brethren in learning the ritual as adopted by this Grand Lodge. They are truly an inspiration to the brethren with whom they work and would that there be adequate words to express my appreciation to each of them. To those brethren retiring from this Grand Lodge session, I extend a special thanks for the many years of service to our Grand Lodge. We shall continue to look forward to their company for we are assured they will continue to support their brethren in the districts through the avenue of ritualistic service. lowe a debt of gratitude to the District Deputy Grand Masters who, although appointed by the Grand Master with the responsibility of upholding the law in their districts, have been so very kind and supportive of me. They have never refused a request I have made and I am grateful for their support of the District Deputy Grand Lecturerss and of the ritual. Again this year, the Grand Lodge officers conferred a third degree. This

year's conferral took place in Springfield at the Abou Ben Adhem Shrine Temple on May 13th and represented the fifth consecutive year that such an event has been held. The officers were in formal attire and the work was well done. I want to thank M.W. Bro. Thomas K. McGuire, Jr. for continuing this practice. I am convinced from the favorable comments from those in attendance that the brethren were well pleased with their Grand Lodge officers and the work that they performed. The statewide Round Robin competition was planned for and executed again this year in five areas of the state, attracting several brethren who had not previously participated as well as those who competed last year. Competition was held February 27th in Springfield, March 4th in Chillicothe, March 5th in Jefferson City, March 19th in Monroe City and April 16th in Sikeston. The winners in those areas were Worshipful Bro. Harold Braden, R.W. Bro. Frederick Troxel, Jr., Worshipful Bro. Robert L. Hudson, R.W. Bro. Delbert Dailey and W. Bro. Curtiss L. Huffines, in that order. These fine brethren came to the Grand Lodge office building in Columbia on April 30th for the run-off, with R.W. Bro. Frederick A. Troxel, Jr. of Blue Springs Lodge No. 337 of Blue Springs being declared the winner. Each of the winners received a medallion to wear, a handsome trophy, and the state victor was presented the traveling trophy by last year's winner, R.W. Bro. John E. Reece. In addition to the official visits to all the districts, we again held 20 sectional meetings in five areas of the state. These meetings are primarily held for the District Deputy Grand Lecturers to sharpen their ritualistic skills. The cities hosting these schools were Cameron, Poplar Bluff, Sedalia, Springfield, Monroe City, Chillicothe, Washington, St. Joseph, Kansas City, Sikeston, and Wentzville, to whom we express our appreciation for the use of their fine facilities and the delicious meals. These schools are well attended during the fall, winter and early spring sessions with the numbers significantly smaller at the late spring and summer meetings. Vacations, field work in the farming areas and the fact that it is no longer a requirement for lodge officers to attend the Grand Lecturer's schools to receive the Grand Lodge Achievement Award can be attributed in part to the decrease in numbers. The schools are extremely important to the deputy system for it is here that he sharpens his ritualistic skills and exemplifies too, the ritual for those uneducated in different aspects of work within the lodge room. In some areas it is becoming very difficult to find a man who will devote the time and effort to become proficient in all of the work, hence we are finding it difficult to fill these positions. Such a man must be patient and kind as well as ritualistically proficient. At the condlusion of the official visits, I again held twenty-one joint meetings for from two to four districts where we were able to do some of the degree work that we were unable to cover in a district visit. Again, the early schools are better attended than those in later spring and early summer. I must assume that the previous conditions given for small attendances apply here also. Members of the Fraternity in the 13th District were saddened when

one of their number, District Deputy Grand Lecturer R.W. Bro. Virgil W. Slaughter (Shorty) was called from labor to rest by our Supreme Grand Master on May 16th of this year. I was privileged to conduct the Masonic service held in Brookfield, May 20, and the numbers of Masonic brethren and other friends who mourned his passing filled the chapel -- and overflowed outside those walls. It was a fitting tribute to a brother who had served his Grand Lodge faithfully for 30 years -. and his community as a good friend and neighbor for many more. The loss of Shorty from the family of District Deputy Grand Lecturers is deeply felt and a replacement in that District is a difficult one. The absence of this brother now, from our midst, reminds us once more of the uncertainty of human life and that no one has the promise of the gift of tomorrow in which to complpte the unfinished task. On August 6th in Southwest City at the annual outdoor degree, those present were permitted to witness an almost flawless degree conferred by the Abou Ben Adhem Shrine Clowns unit. The participants were similarly dressed in white shirts, bow ties and black trousers. They did a fine job with the ritual and the lecture was delivered with accuracy by M.W. Bro. Edward Blinn. It is heartwarming to know that there are yet many brethren who will devote precious time to perfect themselves in the ritual and present these special gifts to this worthy cause. My hat is off to the Shrine Clowns for this outstanding work. I wish to express my thanks to M.W. Bro. Thomas K. McGuire, Jr., our Grand Master, for his confidence in me and for allowing me the privilege of working with the brethren throughout the state as the Grand Lecturer. I am indebted to the Grand Master for his loyal support of me and of the ritual. It has been a most rewarding year working with and for him. It was also, through his generosity, that Johnnie and I were enabled to attend Grand Masters & Grand Secretaries Conference of North America at Cedar Rapids, Iowa this year on February 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th. It was rewarding to have an opportunity to talk with our brethren from other Grand Jurisdictions with regard to their ritual experience and other matters pertaining to methods of generating incentives to our brethren in our own jurisdiction. I found it personally helpful to share some of our mutual problems and solutions. lowe my sincere thanks to all the Grand Lodge Officers who as a united body have given their support and encouragement throughout this past year. This Grand Lodge owes the Grand Lodge officers a debt of gratitude for their time taken from their daily pursuits to share his talents with this body of Freemasonry, each in his own unique way. It is my desire to pass on to my brethren as flawlessly as is possible, the wisdom and beauty found within the ritual of our beloved order, and hope and pray that by precept and example, we, as a Grand Lodge, may continue to give life and meaning to the body of Freemasonry. May the Great Creator of the Universe continue to bless and prosper our efforts to diffuse more light and knowledge to our world. God bless you all. Fraternally submitted, T. BROWN, Grand Lecturer

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RITUAL R.W. Brother Stanton T. Brown, Chairman, moved that the Report of the Committee on Ritual presented in the Booklet, "Reports of Officers and Committees" be accepted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and the Report of the Committee on Ritual was accepted. To the Grand Lodge, AR & AM. of the State ofMissouri. BRETHREN: Your Committee on Ritual met at Columbia, Missouri on April 30, 1988 and proceeded with the following businesses. A request of the Committee to consider including the Pledge of Allegiance as a part of the Ritual in the opening of a lodge. Through considerable discussion the following points were made: 1. We must consider the request on its merits, not just a change for change sake. 2. This would be an addition to our current ritual at a time when there are many who are calling for a reduction in the opening ritual. 3. The singing of an "Ode" has been a part of the opening ritual since its adoption. Since most lodges utilize "America" for the Ode, this expresses Masonry's encouragement and philosophy of patriotism. 4. The Ritual Committee recommends that lodges repeat the Pledge of Allegiance at each meeting; however, it should be optional and not a part of the Ritual. As such, the most logical time for the pledge would be before the Master raps the gavel to begin the opening ritual. The medallions for the Round Robin Ritual Contest were shown. The state-wide winner received a silver medallion and the regional winners received one in bronze. These are beautiful medallions and the committee appreciates the Grand Masters use of his contingency fund to have them struck and purchased for this special recognition. The committee members have been kept quite busy handling the matters dealing with the certificate plans. We wish to express our appreciation to R.W. Bro. Terry C. Alexander and his office staff for their valuable assistance in handling the detailed work which goes through the Grand Lodge office with regard to the certificate plans. The list of names of the brethren who have received Certificates this past year in Subdivision I, II & III will be listed in the proceedings as a part of this report.

REPORT OF MISSOURI LODGE OF RESEARCH R.W. Brother Thomas C. Warden, Worshipful Master, presented the Report of the Missouri Lodge of Research. R.W. Brother Warden moved that the printed Report of The Lodge of Research be received and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded. By the vote of the Grand Lodge, the Report of the Missouri Lodge of Research was RECEIVED. To the Grand Lodge, AR & AM, ofMissouri: BRETHREN: The Missouri Lodge of Research maintained its membership count at around 1,550 during the 1987-88 year and, despite difficulty in securing manuscript on Masonic topics, provided a volume, "Seekers of Truth, " scheduled for mailing in mid-September. This volume, by Allen E. Roberts, recognizes the 60th anniversary of The Philalethes Society and is a collection of articles from The Philalethes Magazine which provide an account of Freemasonry over six decades. Furthermore, a manuscript by Bro. Ray Hilton of Springfield -- selections from The Freemason Magazine -- has been received by Editor C.w. Ohrvall and should be ready for distribution around the. first of the year. Our semi-annual meeting held in conjunction with Grand Chapter, Grand Council in Springfield on May 12 was attended by 97 Masons, and featured Grand Commander Chester Hazen as guest speaker. At that time, the Lodge of Research had the opportunity to purchase a complete set of its printed works and did so, with the goal of being able to constitute a repository of our publications if and when a library is available at the Grand Lodge Administration Building in Columbia. The Lodge would like to take this opportunity to remind the brethren that copies of "Brother Truman" are yet available and suggests that the volume, recounting the Masonic life of perhaps the foremost Freemason of this century, makes an appropriate gift for each newly-raised Master Mason. Brethren, your Master would be remiss if the point was not again made that the Research Lodge needs desperately to reassess its policy on publishing annual volumes. During the past two years three of the most prolific Masonic authors in the United States -- Alphonse Cerza, Alex Horne and James Case -- have gone to their long homes of that Grand Lodge on high. Few Masonic authors remain. The Lodge has been reduced to reprinting past volumes and, as with the two-volume "Case Collection," the "Seekers of Truth," and the forthcoming compendium of articles from The Freemason Magazine, is presently collecting and publishing articles which have been previously published in periodicals. As manuscript increasingly is difficult to acquire, the Lodge must attract more local authors or present in single volumes a collection of several papers and short essays, much as other research lodges are doing. This will be a challenge for the Missouri Lodge of Research in years to come. Brethren, as in past years our appreciation is expressed to SecretaryTreasurer R.W. Bro. Frank W. Hazelrigg, whose diligence and efforts be-

yond the call of duty have been invaluable in the administration of this organization. I beg your indulgence at not being present for last year's annual meeting and for inattention to duties early in the lodge year, as personal tragedies took their emotional toll. It has been an honor serving as your Master. Respectfully Submitted, C. WARDEN, MAsTER

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC SCHOOLS R.W. Brother Albert J. EI Frank presented the Report of the Committee on Public Schools. R.W. Brother EI Frank moved that the report of the Committee on Public Schools be received and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and accepted by vote of the Grand Lodge. To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of the State of Missouri A.F. & A.M.

Most Worshipful Grand Master: Despite continued criticism from what is called the political and religious right, public schools receive widespread support from the general public. They constitute the arm of government which enjoys most support from the public at large. Missouri voters' recent adoption of a constitutional amendment to permit the raising of taxes by a four-sevenths vote, instead of a two-thirds vote, is due, at least in part, to the esteem which public schools enjoy. In recent years there has been growing concern that public school textbooks, especially in history, give inadequate attention to the place of religion in American society. In 1963 the Supreme Court ruled, in essence, that public schools may teach about religion but that they cannot teach religion. Some publishers tended to minimize, even to ignore, religion. At present there are some signs of a movement to get publishers to give fair attention to religion's role, while guarding against promotion of sectarianism or the teaching of religion. Making their way through the Federal judicial process are some cases seeking to clarify the "equal access" law, under which secondary schools which permit student-led organizations may not discriminate against organizations with a religious purpose. So far the Supreme Court has not considered the merits of this law.

There are some bills in Congress calling for vouchers and tax credits to benefit private schools and their patrons. These bills seem to be dormant, mainly due to the enormity of the Federal deficit. Though public schools are not directly involved in current political and legislative discussions about day care, some of the day care proposals under consideration incorporate the principle of vouchers or tax credits. If enacted into law, these proposals respecting day care could become precedents for vouchers or tax credits for private schools. Therefore, there is need for continued vigilance to insure that public schools recognize and strengthen the many-splendored diversity of our society, at the same time leaving private and church schools to their own resources in underwriting these schools' unique purposes.

The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge, The Report of the Committee on Masonic Education was RECEIVED.

To the Grand Lodge ofMissouri, AR and A.M.:ofMissouri: BRETHREN:

The 1987-88 year of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, as it relates to our ongoing program for Masonic Education, has been both productive and successful. Based on a triad of programs - the Lodge Education Officer, the Achievement Award, and the Leadership Training Series - your Committee on Masonic Education began development in the areas of the District Education Officer (enacted into law at last Grand Lodge) and Marketing Development (as it relates to the Lodge Officers' Manual and the Achievement Award). Let us, through this report, analyze where we are and, more importantly, where we intend to go. This year's Working '!boIs of Leadership series (presented at the Regional Meeting Sites) focused on Goal Setting, Motivation and Time Management. The "Action Team", headed by Masonic Education Committee member Tom McCully, again did a superb job. Superb in quality of content, quality of delivery and quality of feedback. The overwhelming number (90+%) of responses given at the end of each session requested more not less instruction, more not less discussion, more not less training and more not less concentration on the issues that confront us as an institution. The next two years of the WORKING TOOLS OF LEADERSIDP will cover the last five delineated areas i.e., Planning for Progress, Leadership Styles, The Next Man, Communication and The Lodge and the Community. By IlQ means will this be the end of


1988

leadership development. Your Committee is hard at work developing ways and means to further amplify the outstanding beginning made in this endeavor. Major credit goes to Tom McCully and the hard working Brethren in Kansas City who are, in a very real sense, the "Godfathers" of our endeavor. Indeed, the Committee's appreciation goes to the Ex-Officio members of our Committee, Brothers McGuire, Jenkins, Warden and Cole, whose support of the program gives it what it most needs - credibility and stability. The newest and proudest development of your Committee on Masonic Education is the implementation of the District Education Officer Program. Enacted last session, your Committee Chairman met with the DEO's at the Deputy Conference. It is heart warming to tell you of the level of support received from these able and distinguished leaders. Letters of support, phone calls and conversations with and/or from many of them tell us that the wisdom of the Grand Lodge again has come forth to aid all Brethren. Your Committee thanks you - the voting members of Grand Lodge - for your foresight in enacting such "landmark" legislation. The future is bright indeed for the DEO program. On October 8, 1988 we will host (for the first time ever) a DEO conference designed to develop a program connecting the Masonic Education Program directly to the local lodge via the DEO. We are, to say the least, excited, motivated, and ready to help forge potentially one of the greatest links between the Grand Lodge and the Constituent Lodge - The District Education Officer. Our Lodge Education Officer Program (together with the widely acclaimed Lodge Officer Manual) is in the capable hands of Dick Nelms. Soon to be Worshipful Master of Gate of the Temple Lodge, Dick Nelms is on the "cutting edge" of Leadership Training and Development and we are as proud as we can be of the time (and great talent) he devotes to this cause. Your Grand Lodge Achievement Award, the cornerstone of this successful living program, is under the guidance and leadership of Dick Smith. Our Committee, and its Chairman, could not function nearly as well without Dick's efforts. The Achievement Award truly benefits because he direets it. Your Committee sells a tremendous amount of material at its booth at Grand Lodge. We firmly believe, that our publications do no good unless they are in your hands at your lodge. Our two newest Committee members, Zel Eaton and Scott Grantham, have the respect, admiration and appreciation of the entire Committee for all they do in this regard. We continue to participate, and in at least one man's opinion, lead the Midwest Conference on Masonic Education. Each of you have a right, yes a responsibility, to know how well your program is received throughout the Midwest. Our other responsibility as a Committee, is to see to the publishing of the FREEMASON magazine. That is, brethren, a joyous "duty". It is joyous because of the editorship ofM. W. Brother J.C. Montgomery, Jr. Jack is, without doubt, one of the finest editors and human beings your Committee or its Chairman, has ever met. Courteous, generous, brilliant, hard

working and unobtrusive - Jack is the consummate Freemason. We are all thankful to God that Jack continues to make steady progress on the road to recovery. He is a true friend on whom we all can (and do) with confidence rely. We thank you,Jack, for all you continue to do. The efforts of this Committee couldn't be accomplished without the support of the Grand Lodge Officers, the Committee on Ways and Means, and the Office of the Grand Secretary. To all we say thank you. In addition' we thank M. W. Brother Thomas K. McGuire, Jr. who supported the above completely. Respectfully submitted, Thomas H. McCully C. Scott Grantham, Jr. Richard L.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS Board of Directors Masonic Home of Missouri St. Louis, Missouri We have audited the balance sheet of Masonic Home of Missouri as of June 30, 1988, and the related statement of income, expenses and changes in fund balances for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of Masonic Home of Missouri's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the fmancial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall fmancial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Masonic Home of Missouri as of June 30, 1988, and the results of its operations and changes in fund balances for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

MASONIC HOME OF MISSOURI NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 1988 NOTE 1. Organization and summary ofsignificant accounting policies: Description offunds: Current fund: Unrestricted - general: General fund unrestricted income includes all income from residents of the Masonic Home of Missouri ("the Home"), dividends and interest from the reserve and endowment funds, per capita taxes from the Grand Lodge and Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star and other ge'neral fund contributions. This income is used to fund the operations of the Home. Unrestricted - reserve: Unrestricted reserve fund income includes undesignated gifts and bequests and Grand Lodge initiation fees which, according to Board policy, are transferable to the general fund and expendable for operations only upon approval of the Board of Directors. Dividend and interest income from reserve fund investments is transferred to the general fund except for funds to pay agency management fees. Realized gains and losses from reserve fund security transactions are recorded in the Reserve Fund. Endowments: Certain gifts and bequests to the Home are in the form of endowments which contain legal restrictions as to the use of such funds. Generally, the restrictions provide that the income from the investment of the gifts and bequests be available for operations of the general fund while the principal amounts are to remain invested and are not available for current operations. .Accordingly, interest and dividend income from the investment of endowment funds is recorded as transfers to the general fund except for funds to pay agency management fees. Realized gains and losses from endowment fund security transactions are recognized in the Endowment Funds. Building fund: Contributions for the improvement of buildings and grounds and future construction and the related expenses have been recorded in the Building Fund. Property, plant and equipment and depreciation have been recorded in the Building Fund. Contributions for the design and construction of the Masonic Home of Missouri Western Unit have been recorded in the building fund. Interest income from these monies and expenditures for design and construction of the Western Unit have also been recorded in the Building Fund.

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

Investments in marketable securities: Marketable securities donated to the Home are recorded at their fair market value as of the date the gift is received; securities purchased by the Home are recorded at cost. Interest and dividend income from these investments is recognized as income when received. Gains and losses from the sale of securities are recognized at the time of sale, and represent the difference between the proceeds received and the carrying value of the securities determined on an average basis. Property, plant and equipment: Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost or estimated cost. Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Home family, pension income and C&A fund: Upon admission to the Home, residents are required to assign and transfer all personal assets to the. Home. Nonmonetary assets transferred to the Home are sold as soon as practicable, and the proceeds are recorded at the time of sale. Monetary assets, except fully-funded insurance policies, are recorded at fair market value at the date of receipt. It is the Home's policy to not recognize the cash surrender value of fully-funded life insurance policies at the time of entrance in the Home but to recognize the proceeds upon death of the resident. Pension and social security retirement income funds available to residents are assets of the Home. The Home provides each resident a monthly allowance of $35 plus additional amounts for birthdays and holidays. The unexpended portion of these allowances ($136,317 at June 30, 1988) is held in custody by the Home in accounts segregated from Home assets. Remaining balances at the time of the death of the resident revert to the General Fund. The following is a summary of the assets and liabilities (unaudited) of the C&A fund as ofJune 30, 1988: Total assets (investments including cash)

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

56

1988

Prior to July 1, 1987, expenditures for property, plant and equipment were expensed as incurred. During the year ended June 30, 1988, the Horne retroactively capitalized these assets to comply with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 93, "Recognition of Depreciation by Not-For-Profit Organizations." The effect of this change would be to reduce the excess of income over expenses before transfers as of June 30, 1987 by approximately $270,000. A summary of the property, plant and equipment and the related accumulated depreciation follows: Land $ 65,000 Land improvements............................................ 91,200 Buildings 7,389,808 Furniture and equipment 892,814 Autos.................................................................... 120,103 $8,558,925 Less accumulated depreciation as ofJune 30, 1988 2,817,494 $5,741,431 NOTE 4. Endowment and Gussie Grenner funds: The endowment funds consist of general endowments and two special endowments which, in accordance with the bequests, are required to be seWegated. The balances of the William Knollman and Jacob and Sallie Simon endowments were $1,046,245 and $1,250,214 at June 30, 1988, respectively. Assets and related fund balance of the Gussie Grenner fund have not been included as part of the assets and fund balance of the Horne. These assets and related fund balance are maintained by the Trustee as required by the donor's bequest. Income from the trust is paid directly to the Horne. At June 30, 1988, the fund balance of the Gussie Grenner fund was $774,707. Income accrued and paid to the Horne was $39,229 for the year ended June 30, 1988. NOTE 5. Pension plan: The Board of Directors of the Horne voted to adopt an employee pension plan which went into effect on July 1, 1984. This plan benefits all non-union employees on a retroactive basis who were eligible and employed as of the effective date of the plan. The plan is a defined-contribution plan, and it requires ~he Horne to make annual contributions equal to 5 percent of each eligible employee's compensation. Past service costs will be funded over the five years commencing July 1, 1984. Pension expense under the plan was $26,338 for the year ended June 30,1988. In accordance with the union contract, all eligible union employees

A CHANGING YEAR BRETHREN: Your Masonic Home report for the year 1987 - 1988 would not be complete without an accounting of the accomplishments your Board has attempted to bring about. The care of our Residents in both the Eastern and Westem Unit was of primary concern this last year and close co-

operation of everyone was needed to achieve this goal. We especially want to thank our Board members who donated their time and efforts to affect some serious decisions. We also compliment our administration department for providing the necessary information to base these decisions on. The volunteer program on both sides of the State, a truly necessary function of all brethren and sisters, is still improving and we wish to express our sincere thanks for all who have participated. Your Masonic Home needs this attention and interest while expressing its thanks for the financial and physical help.

DR. HAROLD WALTERS RETIRES In November 1987 Dr. Harold Walters submitted his resignation effective January 1, 1988 to your Masonic Home Board. Dr. Walters had served the Masonic Home of Missouri since 1955 as a Physician and/or Medical Director and the Home expresses our deep appreciation for his outstanding and dedicated service for over thirty two (32) years. Dr. Walters expressed his regret in leaving but he has other commitments that make the change necessary.

EASTERN UNIT At the January meeting of the Masonic Home Board the resignation of Brother Jim Wilson, Executive Director was submitted and accepted by your Board of Directors. Brother Wilson resigned effective February 1, 1988 and best wishes as to his future endeavors were extend~d by the Home Board. A search committee was immediately appointed and the recommendation of Ms. Judith E. Anders was submitted and accepted by the Board. The Home was very fortunate to have as experienced and qualified an administrator as Ms. Anders available at the Western Unit. She was willing to immediately relocate from Kansas City to Saint Louis and assume this position which filled a very critical need of the Board. It is our opinion that this selection can only benefit our Home in the years to come. If there were one recommendation still of viable concern for this Unit it would be the possibility of relocation. Back as early as 1970, M.W. Brother William Chapman expressed the need for studying this possibility, and it now has become a critical need. Your Home Board of 1988-89 must deal with this challenge and find some solution to support the needs of our residents. WESTERN UNIT Due to the transfer from the Western Unit to the Eastern Unit of Ms. Judith E.Anders, a new Administrator was required for the Kansas City Unit. The selection of Mrs. Susan Brown, a former employee of the Eastern Unit, was completed by February 1988. Mrs. Brown had completed her administrative training and had also relocated to the Kansas City area since leaving the Eastern unit. Because she was very familiar with our operation the transition was very smooth and your Board felt very fortunate that Mrs. Brown was available.

With the landscaping at the Western Unit approximately completed we were blessed with the addition of a beautiful fountain donated from Brother Egner and his wife, Sister Betty Lee Egner, 'fteasurer of the Order of the Eastern Star Advisory Board. Also the remaining two flag poles were furnished and installed by Independence Lodge No. 76. These three items make our Western Unit seem complete from an exterior view. We would also like to note that other lodges donated to the needs and "want" list of the Western Unit and proper acknowledgement, while accomplished, will never adequately express our sincere thanks.

CENTENNIAL COMMITrEE Right Worshipful Brother Thomas C. Warden is chairman of the committee planning for the 100 year anniversary of the Masonic Horne of Missouri. Many plans and programs are being put into place for this celebration. Our sincere thanks to Brother Warden and his committee for an outstanding job of coordination with Slogans, Logos and other promotional material now being published for our use.

COORDmATOROFFRATERNALRELATIONS Most Worshipful Brother Fielding A Poe was assigned the additional Chairmanship of the Fiscal and Long Range Planning Committee this last year. Brother Poe is working closely with the Centennial Committee on budgeting and programs and some outstanding ideas are being developed for future yearS'. Brother Poe's experience and his creative ideas have been a real plus for the Masonic Home. Brother Poe also headed the greeting card program which was a new endeavor for the Masonic Home. This program was instituted with the permission of the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Thomas K. McGuire, Jr. in lieu of his Spring appeal request. Results are still not complete as to the success of this project but should be available by the end of September 1988.

BOARD VISIT With an invitation for Worshipful Masters, Masonic Home Representatives, District Deputy Grand Masters and District Deputy Grand Lecturers to visit the Executive Board meeting on successive months, the March and April meetings were well attended. The Eastern Unit in April had a total 37 Brethren of the 61st Masonic District and the Western Unit in March was visited by 50 Brethren from six different districts. We hope that these visiting Brethren developed a better understanding of the many problems that are presented to this Board and the way such problems are discussed and solved.

ORDER OF TIlE EASTERN STAR Only the most pleasant of memories are left after meetings with the Advisory Board of this Order. We never cease to be amazed at the money raised for certain projects or the time these ladies spend in our behalf.

They seem to be involved in so many of our problems that it would be very difficult to imagine.our operation without their help. Both the Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star and the Advisory Board should be given very special recognition for the way they conduct their many projects. They seem very tireless until success is in their grasp. We can only extend our deepest thanks for the continual concern that exist.

APPRECIATION It has been a great honor to serve as President of the Missouri Masonic Home Board of Directors. Being fortunate to have served on the Board two tenns, it has developed a real understanding of the problems that keep existing in the efforts of operating this facility. The men who have been elected to this Board and have donated so much time and effort to its success have made this a most rewarding and valuable time of life. We can only express our greatest thanks for the opportunity of working with so many talented Brethren. Respectfully submitted ROBERT D. JENKINS, President

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT OF THE MASONIC HOME R.W. Brother Daniel F. Cole R.W Brother Robert D. Jenkins asked R.W. Daniel F. Cole to present a supplemental report to the printed report of the Masonic Home: "My Brethren, the Home Board wants to share with you several items of major importance to your Masonic Home. Most of you are knowledgeable of the dramatic changes occurring in the Health Industry. Entirely apart from any political considerations we must also recognize current activity in the area of public health care and the potential for increased Federal, State and local regulations. In addition to the external influences on your Masonic Home Program, we must also recognize that Missouri Masonry continues to exhibit a downward trend in membership and will likely continue to do so for at least the near term. Coupled with this factor is the growing average age of our membership. The results -- an increasing need for the Masonic Home program with a smaller membership to support that program. These and internal impacts on our Masonic Home require that.your Masonic Home Board remain flexible, creative and proactive to insure that we continue to provide the type of program our members desire and deserve and in the most cost effective manner possible. We are heartened by the increasing activity in the area of wills. Several of our Brethren, their wives or widows have named the Home in their wills. We thank those of you who have done so. However, we need to continue our attention to the financial status of the Home's programs. In this respect, you should be aware of trends the Home is experiencing. In the last ten years the Masonic Home's operating expenses have grown from around $2,000,000 to over $8,000,000 a year. There have been several major reasons for this dramatic change -- increasing costs of wages and supplies, the expense of complying with applicable government regulations and the increasing need for advanced nursing care for our residents. Unfortunately, income has not kept up with our needs. This year our projection indicates that we will have to draw from our reserves on the order of 1.5 million dollars to meet these expenses. If this trend continues Brethren, it is obvious that the Board might be forced to cut back on the portion of the Home's program due to the decrease in income from our reserves. In view of this situation and in reflection of the Board's continuing concern that money under our preview be handled in the best manner possible, we have employed Geritalogical Services, Inc., a well known consulting firm

in the nursing home field, to examine our program and make recommendations on management practices, physical plant, methods of financing and capability to increase giving from members of the Fraternity. As conditions warrant and in the light of suggestion which may be made by these consultants, the Board may deem it desireable to make several recommendations for your action at the next Grand Lodge Communication. If such is the case, the Board will make every effort to inform the membership of any proposals to be considered to allow for intelligent, informed decisions. As always we thank you for your continued support. The Masonic Home, its Board and the Brothem of Missouri Lodges face tremendous challenges in the immediate future. With your help we have no doubt these challenges can be and will be overcome. Thank you Brothem." R.W. Brother Jenkins moved that the Report of the Masonic Home as pre-printed in the Booklet and the Supplemental Report be accepted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. By vote of the Grand Lodge, the Reports of the Masonic Home were ACCEPrED.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 1b the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: The Grand Lodge committee on the Grand Master's Address, composed of all Past Grand Masters in attendance at this Communication, report: Concerning the State of the Craft, we recognize the need for change, and commend the Grand Master and Grand Lodge Officers for their foresight in establishing a Long Range Planning Committee. We are pleased that there is continued cooperation within the Masonic Family in Missouri, and that the "Show-Me" State does not have the many conflicts that are present in other jurisdictions. The Grand Master is to be commended for his strict adherance to the Constitution and By-Laws, concerning decisions and following up on past directives. Each of us recognize that the Grand Lodge line advanced an extra year, which placed Judge McGuire, a public servant, in office a year sooner than expected. This placed him in the demanding position of Grand Master at the same time he needed to devote much time and effort to the tasks of assuring his continuation in an elected position. Although the Grand Master did not make any specific recommendations, the Committee recommends that those parts of the Address that need further study and development be referred to the proper committees.

Accepted Masons ofthe state ofMissouri:

Your Committee on Jurisprudence respectfully reports as follows: Dispensations We have examined the dispensations issued by order of the Grand Master as set forth in the Report of the Grand Secretary and we app!ove t~e same as within the discretion of the Grand Master. Consents, Permissions and Healing Orders We have examined the consents, permissions and healing orders pertaining to the activities and operations of subordinate lodges granted by the Grand Master as set forth in the Report of the Grand Secretary and we approve the same as within the discretion of the Grand Maste Decisions 1. A St. Louis area lodge rejected two petitions. Investigation revealed a member present was not of sound mind and no reason warranted the rejections. The Grand Master ordered the ballot set aside and a new ballot taken pursuant to Section 14.100 (which resulted in election).

The Jurisprudence Committee approves this Decision. 2. A Kansas City area lodge was directed by PGM Kinkead to file charges against a member who had entered a guilty plea to a felony. Thinking this was done, the Grand Master appointed a Trial Commission only to discover the charge was never filed. The Grand Master ordered the charge filed. The lodge was directed to strictly comply with the Trial Code and should the member not plead guilty and request expulsion, the Grand Master has re-appointed the Trial Commission. The Jurisprudence Committee approves this Decision. 3. 'I\vo St. Louis area lodges are planning to consolidate and requested they be allowed to adopt a completely new lodge name. The Grand Master ruled that Section 7.200 would not allow a completely new name. The Jurisprudence Committee approves this Decision. 4. A lodge in the St. Joseph area has not reported the election of officers nor held a meeting in two years. The Grand Master advised the lodge unless they took appropriate action, he would arrest their Charter on September 12, 1988, pursuant to Section 2.010 (b).

TERMINATION OF PERPETUAL MEMBERSIDP (a) Where perpetual members have not been heard from for more than seven years, the Worshipful Master shall direct the secretary to report the names of such missing brethren in the Grand Lodge returns as being "legally dead".

The purpose of the resolution is to provide a mechanism which would allow any member in good standing to provide for future dues by using interest income from a lump sum payment. The Jurisprudence Committee recommended and M.W. Brother Walker moved that these amendments concerned with perpetual membership be forwarded to the Ways and Means Committee and that an actuary examine the cost amount of the perpetual membership and determine if it is sufficient.

REPORT OF COMMITrEE ON CHARTERED LODGES R.W. Brother Gerald W. Burnworth, Chairman, presented the Report


1988

GRAND LOOOE OF MISSOURI

89

of the Committee on Chartered Lodges as printed in the Booklet, "Reports of officers and Committees." He moved the acceptance of the Report for printing in the PROCEEDINGS. The Motion being seconded, the Grand Lodge voted that the Report of the Committee on Chartered Lodges be ACCEPI'ED. To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge ofMissouri, AR and AM. of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master your committee on chartered lodges met in the office of the Grand Secretary on August 25, 1988 and wishes to submit the following report after careful consideration of the 481 annual returns which were in the office at that time. Due to illness, Brother Wilbur M. Daughtrey and Brother Howard J. Gwinn were unable to attend. Brother Walter E. Oerter and Brother Elmer D. Copeland were called at the very last minute. These two Brothers filled the two vacancies with utmost efficiency. The chairman of the committee is most grateful for their assistance. LATE RETURNS: Our Grand Secretary is still plagued with the age old problem of "Late Returns." Four returns were received while the committee was in the office, however there were still 22 returns still absent. The delinquent Lodges were: 44, 52, 60, 65, 71, 239, 291, 360, 383, 400, 433,445,459,484,504,525,540,569,590,606&625. The Section 10.050 of our by-laws was amended at the 1987 session of the Grand Lodge. The "late assessment," is now $10.00 p(;r week. This enactment appears to have had some effect. There were only 50% as many late this year as there were last year at this time. The office of the Grand Secretary is billing the delinquent lodges at the time their returns are received. This delinquent condition should improve still more next year. NEW LODGES: The committee was once more pleased to learn that one new lodges had been organized this past year. Daylight Lodge U.D. was organized in Springfield, Missouri on December 13, 1987 and was set to work on January 4, 1988. As the name implies, this is a daytime lodge, and this should prove advantageous for senior citizens who do not care to drive and be out at night time. The committee on "Lodges Under Dispensation," will give the complete report. CONSOLIDATION: Five lodges consolidated and merged into other lodges during the past year. Rich Hill consolidated and merged into Butler No. 254 at Butler on December 28, 1987; Essex No. 278 at Essex consolidated with and merged into Bloomfield No. 153 at Bloomfield on February 4, 1988; Wardell No. 665 at Wardell consolidated and merged into Odom No. 671 at Portageville on April 7, 1988; Maitland No. 112 at Maitland consolidated and merged into Mound City No. 294 at Mound City on March 8, 1988; Trinity No. 641 at St. Louis consolidated and merged into Keystone No. 243 at St. Louis to become Keystone -Trinity No. 243 on February 17, 1988. MEMBERSHIP: The 481 reports which were checked gave us a total of 72,776 Master Masons. Sixty-four lodges reported a gain of 196 members. (The 5 lodges which had another lodge to consolidate with them, were not


90

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1988

counted in this gain of membership). Forty-four lodges did not show any gain or loss in membership. Three hundred sixty-eight lodges reported a loss of 2658 members. Two hundred seventy-seven lodges raised 707 Master Masons. Two hundred sixty-eight lodges reported affiliation of 771 mulitple members. SUSPENSIONS - S.N.P.D. Three hundred forty lodges reported 1705 suspended for non-payment of dues. There were 4 lodges which suspended 30, 32, 33 and 33 members for a total of 128. The District Deputy Grand Master's reports indicate that we still have many lodges who are not conforming to Section 9.160 of Grand Lodge By-Laws. DEATHS: This decline in membership cannot be avoided. The membership as a whole is getting older while we are not acquiring a substantial number of younger members. Why? During the past year, there were 2269 of our members who left us to attend the celestial lodge on high. We bid them adieu for a while until we too shall join them in that hour of fellowship and refreshment. RESEARCH: Your committee, along with other interested members in this grand jurisdiction, is concerned with the steady decline in our fraternity. Since July 1, 1981 through June 30, 1988 (a period of only 7 years) 46 of our lodges have closed their doors. Forty-three of these lodges consolidated with other lodges. Three lodges surrendered their charters and ceased to exist;. Thirty of the forty-six lodges were chartered before 1900. The oldest chartered lodge to close was Bloomington No. 102 at Bevier, MO in the fourteenth District. It was chartered on May 10, 1849 and closed on November 20, 1982. One hundred thirty-three years of operation. The y~ungest lodge to close was Lilbourn No. 666 at Lilbourn,MO in the fifty-first District. It was chartered on September 20, 1952 and closed October 10, 1983. The short life of 32 years. What went wrong? The number oflodges that are closing, the number of S.N.P.D. along with the number of deaths, tell us something. We members of the fraternity better, "Look well to the future," and rededicate ourselves to the task that lies before us. DUES: The average dues collected in the 481 lodges is $21.40 per member. One lodge has a high of $60.00, three lodges report $10.00, and one lodge collects only $7.75 dues. FEES: The average initiation fee in the 481 lodges is $73.88. There are forty-four lodges who collect only the $45.00 minimum as set forth in the Grand Lodge By-laws Section 10.010. A one hundred fifty dollar fee is the highest amount reported. Three hundred fifty-nine lodges reported their initiation fee is less than one hundred dollars. ATTENDANCE: This is an age old problem. Each year the average continues the downward trend. The question is often asked by many, "Why?" One fact that has crippled attendance in the lodges is the fact that they do not have anything to offer. To open the lodge, read the minutes, pay the bills, close the lodge, and go home, is the most successful way to kill attendance and eventually kill the lodge.

It is the responsibility of the Worshipful Master to plan his meetings with something of interest for the members. In most cases he has only 20 meetings during his term of office. The Worshipful Master, with the assistance of the Senior and Junior Wardens, should be able to plan the meetings with something of interest for the members. Four hundred seventy-one lodges reported an average of 15 at each meeting. There were 27 lodges who reported only seven in attendance. One hundred eighty-nine lodges reported less than 12 in attendance. (Twelve constitutes a full line of officers). One hundred sixty-two lodges had an average under 20 per meeting. One hundred twenty had an average of 20 and over in attendance. Ten lodges did not report an average attendance. This fact raises a question. ERRORS: The figures in this report are not exactly 100% accurate. Our Grand Secretary and his office staff, with their many duties, have not had time to check all the annual ret~rns. While the committee was tabulating the statistics from the returns, some discrepancies were noted. It is difficult to understand. Rt.Wor. Brother Alexander sends a step-by-step set of instructions along with the annual returns. He also encloses a greenwork sheet which can be made out in pencil. This work sheet enables the Lodge Secretary to check and recheck the entries and make the necessary corrections, then copy it on the permanent record sheet. SUMMARY OF THE D.D.G.M. REPORTS: One outstanding fact is that the lodges are auditing their books more regularly. They are reviewing their finances and bringing their dues up to a figure which will cover their expenses. Nearly all lodges report having a constitution and by-laws and also have a set of by-laws for their lodge. There is still a large percentage of the lodges who do not send a notice or trestleboard to their members. It is hard to understand how all the members know the activities of the lodge. This might account for the poor attendance. Such a mailing also enables the secretary to maintain correct mailing addresses by using the "Address Correction Requested" system. It has been mentioned before, but again the committee would ask the District Deputy Grand Masters .to discuss with the lodges, Sections 10.050,9.160,9.050, and 7.030. BY-LAWS; During the past year, a number of lodges have called the Grand Secretary making inquiry about a sample of by-laws for their lodge to use in order to construct a set of by-laws for their lodge. The Grand Lodge Office does have a sample which it does supply. Some few lodges have sent a set of their by-laws to be approved by the Grand Lodge Office. These requests have been referred to this committee, and the committee was pleased to give any assistance it could provide. The committee will be pleased to render this service in the future. The committee would recommend that a file be set up in the office of the Grand Secretary. All lodges be required to furnish a set of their bylaws to be placed in this file. If a lodge should lose, or should their by-laws become destroyed, then a copy could be supplied to them. As these by-laws are received, they would be reviewed for their consistency with Grand Lodge Law. At such a time as an amendment would be made, it would be sent to

the committee or the Grand Lodge Office for approval before it would become a part of the Lodge By-laws. Most Worshipful Grand Master, your committee appreciates the opportunity of serving you and this Grand Lodge. We also want to extend sincere thanks to Rt. Wor. Bro. Terry C.

SOLICITING CANDIDATES - To read as follows: It is a Masonic offense to improperly solicit petitions of candidates for degrees. Improper solicitation being defined as any form of coercion.

Statement ofPurpose: To encourage proper solicitation. It is believed that in many areas of our jurisdiction that Section 13.050, as presently written, is preventing many good men from becoming Freemasons.

The Jurisprudence Committee approved this amendment as to form and recommended its adoption. M.W. Brother Walker moved that the proposed amendment be adopted. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the amendment was adopted.

VIII. PROPOSAL TO AMEND SECTION 15.050 OF THE BYLAWS To amend Section 15.050. SUITABLE PROFICIENCY - To read as follows: "Suitable proficiency" means ability satisfactorily to repeat the obligation of the degree. It is determined after examination in open lodge, by majority vote of the lodge by show of hands. Statement ofPurpose: To curb the loss of membership due to failure to show suitable proficiency. The Jurisprudence Committee approved this amendment as to form and in order to bring this matter to a vote M.W. Brother Walker moved its adoption. The motion for adoption was seconded. R.W. Brother Stanton T. Brown moved that the amendment be referred to the Ritual Committee to be returned to the Jurisprudence Committee for action at the 168th Annual Communication in September 1989. The motion for referral to the Ritual Committee was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge ACCEPTED.

IX. PROPOSAL TO AMEND SECTION 15.020 OF THE BY:LAWS The first sections of the first and second degrees, and the first and second sections of the third degree cannot be conferred on more than one candidate at the same time. In conferring the third degree on any candidate, the first and second sections of the degree must be without any break in their continuity. Each degree must be conferred in its entirety at the same communication. The master shall be responsible for causing inquiry to be made of the candidate whether he has any physical condition requiring any caution or care in conferring the degrees. (Amended 1977-75) The Second Section of the Third Degree constitutes a most solemn and impressive portion of our ritualistic work. In it we are taught the ultimate lessons of Masonic philosophy - victory over death and the immortality of the soul. Nothing must be allowed to impair the deep impression which should be made upon the mind of the candidate. The Grand Lodge forbids any levity, roughness, horseplay, talking, audible laughter, or any other noise which could distract the attention of the candidate Failure to comply with this resolution, or any action by any officer or member in violation or in-


94

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

consistent with this resolution, shall constitute grounds for Masonic discipline. (Res. 1976-146) Statement ofPurpose:

The purpose of this proposed By-Law change is to delete the requirement of the master or acting master of each lodge to read aloud the paragraph pertaining to the Second Section of the Third Degree. We strongly believe reading this statement has accomplished its purpose and is now detrimental to free masonry. The Jurisprudence Committee recommended and M.W. Walker moved that this amendment be referred to the Ritual Committee and returned to the Jurisprudence Committee for action in 1989 at the Annual Communication. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the amendment was referred to the Ritual Committee. X. PROPOSAL TO AMEND ARTICLE 19, SECTIONS 19.010 AND 19.020 OF THE BY-LAWS Article 19. NONPAYMENT OF DUES Section 19.010. NONPAYMENT OF DUES - When a member fails to pay his dues on or before February 15 of any year, the secretary, on or before February 25, must notifY the member in writing of his delinquency. If the member fails to pay his dues on or before April 1 thereafter, he is automatically suspended for non-payment of dues, without action of the lodge. The suspension is recorded by the secretary in the minutes of the first meeting of the lodge thereafter. The Secretary must give written notice, on or before April 11, to all members automatically suspended for nonpayment of dues. Written notice is given' by first-class, fully prepaid, United States mail, to the member at his last known post office address. The automatic suspension of the member is not affected by any failure to notifY or to record the suspension. Section 19.020. PAYMENT WITIlIN ONE YEAR AFTER SUSPENSION - Payment before April 1 of the year following suspension, of the dues for which the member was suspended, reinstates him. The secretary shall report the reinstatement to the lodge and note it in the minutes. A statement of purpose was added at this communication and is as follows: Statement ofPurpose:

By receiving the dues earlier a Lodge will be able to revise their


1988

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

95

budget and change their programs if need be. By having their monies earlier they can be placed in an interest bearing account thereby earning extra dollars. Knowing who will be delinquent earlier will allow the delinquent committee to begin their work earlier. An earlier suspension date will allow the Lodge as well as the delinquent committee more time to investigate the brother to determine his reason for the delinquency and to extend assistance to the brother if required before the annual report of June 30 is prepared. The Jurisprudence Committee approved Sections 19.010 and 19.020 as to form and in order to bring the matter to a vote M.W. Brother Walker moved for adoption. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the amendments were DEFEATED.

XI. PROPOSAL TO AMEND SECTION 10.040 OF THE B짜LAWS It is proposed that the By-Laws of the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of The State of Missouri be amended by changing Section 10.040 to provide as follows: "Section 10.040. GRAND LODGE DUES. Each lodge pays eight dollars and fifty cents ($8.50) to the Grand Lodge for each Master Mason (except those whose dues have been remitted and those exempted under Section (a) of Section 18.050) reported in the annual return, which dues include a subscription to The Freemason magazine. The Grand Lodge, promptly as collected, pays two dollars and fifty cents ($2.50) for each Master Mason to the Masonic Home of Missouri." Statement ofPurpose:

The purpose is to increase the Grand Lodge dues by 50 cents to provide additional funds for the increased costs of operating the Grand Lodge. The Jurisprudence Committee recommended and M.W. Brother Walker moved that this amendment be tables for possible action at the 168th Annual Communication. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the amendment was TABLED.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RELIEF AND CHARITY R.W Brother Terry C. Alexander presented the Report of the Committee on Relief and Charity as printed in the booklet "Report of Officers and Committees" and moved that the Report be accepted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS.

REPORT OF THE COMMITtEE ON MASONIC BOARD OF RELIEF R.W. Brother 'Thrry C. Alexander presented the Report of the Committee on Masonic Board of Relief as printed in the booklet "Report of Officers

and Committees" and moved that the Report be accepted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the Report was RECEIVED. To the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the State ofMissouri: The St. Louis and St. Louis County Masonic Board of Relief had two meetings during the past year. The Annual Meeting on October 7, 1987 and the Semi-Annual Meeting on May 4, 1988. The meetings were held at the Masonic Temple, 3681 Lindell Boulevard, St. Louis, Missouri. At the Annual Meeting, held October 7, 1987 it was regularly moved, seconded, and passed that the same three officers remain for the coming year of 1987-1988. They are: Brother Gerald W. Burnworth, (636) President (& Acting Secretary), Brother James C. Easton (578) Vice-President, Brother James H. Miller (655) Treasurer. The Board was only called on for three courtesy masonic funerals during the past year. Request by St. Marks Lodge No. 93 at Cape Girardeau, Mo. for services for Brother Earl A. Lorimier. Bonhomme Lodge No. 45 performed this service. Request by Winnebago Lodge No. 745 at Winnebago, Ill. for services for Brother Milan F. Baum. Ferguson Lodge No. 542 performed this service. Request by Point Pleasant Lodge No. 176 at Conran, Mo. for services for Brother David E. Bland. Good Hope Lodge No. 218 performed this service. The Board has not had any financial request during the past year. The Board has been called on for 2 graveside memorial services at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. These both were performed by Bro. Burnworth. On February 25, 1988 the Masonic Home at 5351 Delmar Blvd. in St. Louis, contacted Brother Burnworth to perform a memorial service for Brother Erwin Hansen. Brother Hansen was a resident of the Masonic Home at the time of his passing. He was a 70 year member of Hermann Lodge No. 123 at Hermann, Mo. Bro. Burnworth did the memorial service in the Delmar Lounge at the Masonic Home with an overflowing audience. This memorial service sparked an interest. Since that time a memorial service is done each month near the 15th on a Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. At that time the memorial is given for those residents who have passed to their eternal rest during the preceding month. These memorials are done in the name of the Masonic Board of Relief. During the past year the Board has supplied several wheel chairs, walkers, and canes on a tem-

porary basis to those who needed such equipment for a short period of time. The Board has several grave sites at Bellefontain and Vahalla Cemeteries. These are available by request to the board. The St. Louis and St. Louis County Masonic Board of Relief feels that it's operation is definitely a very integral part of Freemasonry. We feel that our masonic funerals, our acts of charity, and our assistance to any handicapped person, is all a part of Freemasonry. These are the things that Freemasons believe in, they are part of our lives. Attached to this report is our financial statement for the year 1987-88. Fraternally Submitted, W. BURNWORTH (636) PRES.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RECOGNITION OF FOREIGN GRAND LODGES M.W. Brother Bruce H. Hunt presented the Report of the Committee on . Recognition of Foreign Grand Lodges as printed in the booklet "Reports of Officers and Committees" and moved that the Report be accepted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the Report was RECEIVED.

To the Grand Lodge ofMissouri, AR and A.M. ofMissouri: BRETHREN: This committee has relied heavily for guidance on the Reports of the Commission on Information for Recognition of the Conference of Grand Masters of Masons in North America. The basic rules for recognition established by the Commission continue to be our guide in determining whether or not a Grand Lodge is eligible for recognition. However, we have not, in every instance, agreed with the Commission's announced findings. The Grand Lodge of Missouri has continued its correspondence with all Grand Lodges it has recognized, and with whom representatives are exchanged. The Committee has received copies of correspondence with a number of Grand Lodges to which Grand Representatives have been appointed and commissioned. The Grand Master of Missouri has also received commissions from other Grand Lodges for Missouri brethren to represent them near the Grand Lodge of Missouri. Last year, this Grand Lodge extended recognition to a number of Grand Lodges, based on the information received from various sources. We have been pleased to note that follow-up correspondence has been the general plan, and recognition has been extended in most cases. The Commission on Information for Recognition of the Conference of Grand Masters has not changed its opinions reached in 1986 and 1987, namely, that the Grand Orient of Italy is not now entitled to recognition. However, through visitation with other interested brethren, whom we believe to be well informed on the subject, this committee does not recommend a withdrawal of recognition of the Grand Orient of Italy at this time. In fairness, it should be stated that a few Grand Lodges have accepted, we believe without question, the opinions of the Commission for Recognition, and have withdrawn recognition. We recommend that Missouri continue to correspond with and recognize the Grand Orient of Italy. Our recommendation is based on a resolution adopted by the Grand Orient of Italy in annual communication in March, 1987, which appears to this committee to meet all the qualifications for recognition. The Grand Orient of Italy adopted (denominated in English): The Identity of the Grand Orient of Italy and the Basic Principles for Grand Lod~e Rec~nition. 1. Regularity of origin. 2. Independence and exclusive jurisdiction over the first three degrees


1988

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

of a Grand Lodge. 3. No inter-visitation with irregular Masonic Associations. 4. Initiation of only good men who express a belief in the Supreme Being. 5. Candidates required to be obligated on the Book of Sacred Law. 6. Display of the ~S.L. with the Square and Compass in the Lodge. 7. No discussion of politics or religion in the Lodge. 8. No members who adhere to associations which are against the peace and good order of society or destruction of Freemasonry, and all members must obey the law of the state. 9. All landmarks, customs and usages of the Craft shall be strictly obeyed in all Lodges. 10. The Grand Orient considers these principles, the "Identity of the Grand Orient of Italy" and the "Charges of a Freemason" to be an integral part of the Book of Constitutions and Regulations." Different members of the commission interviewed Grand Master Armando Corona and others representing the Grand Orient. They reported that while the Grand Orient adopted these principles, it has not adhered to them in practice. This we believe to be a judgmental finding. Again, we state that we believe that Italy will work out its problems and continue to be a valuable member of the regular Masonic family. Grand Lodges in Central and South America have underg<>ne serious hardships in the past few years. We do not believe we should add to their problems with any suggested or real lack of support in these trying times. Fraternally submitted, Bruce H. Hunt, Chairman Herman A. Orlick James M.

er of the 45th Masonic District had previously examined the aforesaid records. Daylight Lodge U.D. is holding its meetings in the Masonic York Rite Temple located at 1930 West Catalpa, Springfield, Missouri. The Committee feels that the location will provide resources for future growth and inspiration to the community as well as to Freemasonry in general. The members of Daylight Lodge U.D. have demonstrated an enthusiasm for our Fraternity and for the advancement of Freemasonry in the State of Missouri. Because of this devotion to the principles of Freemasonry it gives this Committee pleasure to recommend that Daylight Lodge U.D. be granted a Charter by this Grand Lodge.

Our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Thomas K. McGuire, in his address to the Grand Lodge announced that there would be no new programs initiated in 1987-1988 and asked the Brothers to concern themselves with the existing programs. On hearing this announcement it would immediately lead one to believe that 1987-1988 could be a non-progressive year. Quite to the contrary. It is the profound belief of this Com., mittee that it was with great integrity and foresight that Most Worshipful Brother McGuire made this decision. The programs inaugurated by this Committee in 1986-1987, the previous year, were designed to promote "Public Awareness and Favorable Visibility Within The Community". Some of these programs were put in place in the earlier part of that year and after the initial thrust progressively slowed down. Programs that followed later needed time to bloom and could be expanded. We, as a Committee, applaud Most Worshipful Brother McGuire's decision and we thank him for allowing us to devote much of our time to two of our most formative and informative programs. The Organ Donor Program and the expanded program that is now called "Operation Snow Flake". SUMMARY The Chairman of this Committee was given the opportunity to address the new District Deputy Grand Masters and District Deputy Grand Lecturers at a meeting called by our Grand Master. Information on existing programs was made available to those in attendance. Members of this Committee attended all of the Area Meetings and further promoted the ongoing programs. The Missouri Masonic Lapel Pin and visitation program remained strong throughout most of the year. Requests for pins came not only from our own state, but from Brothers throughout the United States, Canada, England, Scotland and Australia. These pins are available from the Grand Lodge Office. Remember, "Buy One For Yourself and Another For A Brother". The Community Road Signs are popping up all over the state. At this time the supply is completely exhausted. We hope that these signs will be available in the very near future from the Grand Lodge Office. The Missouri Masonic Decal Program got off to a rather slow start but is now going full steam ahead as the Brethren become aware of their availability. The logo says it all, ''I'm Proud To Be A Missouri Mason". The Organ Donor Program was formally introduced at the last Grand Lodge Communication. Phase I of this program was put into effect. Informational packets, donor cards, video cassettes and 35mm slides with cassette tapes were prepared and made available to lodges for their use. Three 35 mm slide projectors with matching cassette players were either purchased by or donated to the Committee for their use in the program presentations. With the aid of sub-committees we have made over two hundred presentations to Lodge, Appendant Bodies and Club groups with attendance ranging froni five to five hundred. Throughout the year some changes have been made in the program and for the most part the presentations have been well received. We do re-


1988 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 106 mind our audiences that this program is strictly informational. We as Masons are not in the business of retrieving organs and are not promoting a particular company, companies or associations that do. Although the decision to make "The Gift of Life" is a personal one, we do encourage holding family conferences to discuss this program so that each family member can be informed as to individual wishes in this regard. The design of a portable display unit for use at Lodge,State and County Fairs and other suitable places has been expanded. The project is now called "Operation Snow Flake". This would be a united effort by the entire Masonic Family in the State of Missouri to purchase and put into operation a mobile information unit that would be capable of traveling throughout the State carrying displays, brochures and video presentations depicting the theme "Masonry In Your Community". This vehicle would carry a message about all of Masonry to the people. In real truth of who we are, what we stand for and what we do in the way of charity, not only for our own, but for others as welL After receiving approval of the new concept of this revised project and presenting this project to the leaders of the' Appendant Bodies at the Round Table Discussion December 12, 1987, Most Worshipful Brother McGuire with Right Worshipful Brother Jenkins concurring, informed the Chairman of this Committee that this project was a definite go. A proposal on the road target date was set for June 1988. The condensed general outline of this project is as follows: Trailer Tow Unit Travel Route Mileage Funding

Operation Costs Displays, Brochures and Videos

Drivers

.48 Foot Fifth Wheel (RV type) One ton 350-303 Cutaway Van Conversion (Diesel) Throughout the State .Approximately 25,000 miles per year Initial cost of complete unit (Tow Vehicle and Trailer) would derived from donations from subordinate lodges and individuals, supplemented by the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of the State of Missouri. .Insurance, fuel, license and maintenance would be shared equally by all of the participating Appendant Bodies on a yearly basis .It would be the responsibility of each organization to assume the cost of their display panel, art work of their own choice, etc. Any brochures and videos to be used would be supplied by each organization. Drivers are to be selected from volunteers from around the State. Each volunteer will be screened for experience and capability by a committee in charge of drivers. Experienced tractor/trailer drivers or drivers of RV Fifth

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI 107 Wheels would be preferred although others will be considered.

A complete outline was mailed to the Worshipful Master of each Lodge and to the District Deputy Grand Masters with a cover letter asking for their assistance in presenting this project. Each lodge was asked to contribute One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) or more if possible toward this project. Three Hundred Twenty-Eight (328) Lodges have responded thus far with donations ranging from Five Dollars ($5.00) to Five Hundred ($500.00). Thirty-Five Lodges (35) have declined to participate for varied reasons. The remaining Lodges have yet to respond. Some of our roots are embedded in those smaller Lodges that can't give as much and it surely gives you a good feeling when you see Lodges that are more enabled to do so, give a little more in support of these Brethren. Several Brethren have sent personal donations, many with letters saying it's about time we did something. We have also received over fifty requests from Lodges across the State asking for this unit to participate at Lodge functions or community affairs. The other side of the coin is that we have had three or four nasty letters. A "Snow Flake" update is being prepared and will be mailed to each Lodge soon. Brethren, the difficult takes time, the impossible take a little longer. Any project of this magnitude is going to have pitfalls and this one is no exception. This Committee did not propose this project as a cure-all but rather as a step in the right direction. We have all watched those delicate little snow flakes fall during the winter months. Separately those little flakes of snow are harmless, but look what happens when they all stick together. Missouri Masons are eighty thousand strong and if we all work together there is very little that we cannot accomplish. LOOKING AHEAD Lodges of been encouraged to plan Public Relations Programs of their own. Several of these are being used by this Committee as pilot programs and are being monitored for possible use statewide in the future. A DialA-Lodge information service is being established for possible use in conjunction with billboards at a later date. Brethren have participated in telethons and have set up their own bowl-a-thons, golf and fishing tournaments. Brethren, our beautiful Ozarks could host one of the finest golf or fishing tournaments ever. These could be open to Masons and non-Masons alike. Proceeds from these fun events could go to our biggest charity, Our Masonic Home. What better way to make a new friend than to bean him with a ball, whack him with a club or run over him with a golf cart? How about catching him with a hook on that misplaced cast or letting him get spiked taking that prize catfish off of ~ hook. Every program has its drawbacks and pitfalls. This committee will continue to look for that very special program. One that we will all agree upon, the one that performs miracles

overnight. Hopefully it won't be the one where we all draw up our rocking chairs and grow old together, rocking ourselves into oblivion. On the last weekend of July this Committee played host to the Midwest Masonic Public Relations Conference. In looking ahead the exchange of ideas are important. Most Worshipful Brother P. Vincent Kinkead was ad-hoc Chairman and moderator of this conference and his report is as follows: Twenty-four Missouri Masons and fourteen Brethren from nine other states in the Midwest assembled at Henry VIn Convention Center in St. Louis, Missouri, July 29, 30 and 31, 1988 for the first conference of Grand Lodge Masonic Public Relations Representatives. This conference was so successful that a second conference is scheduled for the last weekend in July 1989 in Iowa. Among the alarming facts presented were the results of a survey, showing fewer than 15% of those surveyed have ever heard of Masonry or Freemasonry. In comparison 40% of those surveyed are familiar with the Shrine. In addition, those jurisdictions who have employed Public Relations firms to promote Masonry have been disappointed with the results. Below is a summary of ideas presented by those attending the conference, to attract more good men into the fraternity. 1. ADVERTISING Television-Radio-Newspaper-Magazine-Outdoor Signs 2. DISPLAYS At public gatherings ( some mobile) Masonic exhibits in museums, Masonic flags, participating in parades 3. PROMOTIONAL ITEMS Lapel pins, neckties, tie chains, belt buckles, decals, stamps and stickers, printed material 4. SERVICE AND RELIEF PROJECTS Organ donor, charitable endeavors 5. OPEN HOUSES Inviting the public into Masonic Temples to educate them about Freemasonry 6. SCHOLARSHIPS Many Grand Lodges are giving financial assistance to students 7. SPEAKER BUREAUS Masons telling non-Masons about Freemasonry 8. PROPER SOLICITATION Selective invitations

The conference was a Masonic Family gathering with leaders from the Scottish Rite, York Rite, and Shrine present. All banding together to reveal to the public the "good works" of Freemasonry. A video tape of the conference is available through the Grand Lodge Office. Respectfully submitted, Vincent Kinkead, ~G.M. Conference Chairman ~

In conclusion this Committee has had another very busy and hopefully productive year. We take this opportunity to thank our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Thm McGuire and all of the Grand Lodge Officers for their support with very special thanks going to our Grand Secretary, Terry Alexander and his staff for all of their help. As we write the final lines, we would like to pay tribute to a very special Brother, one who is very near and dear to each and every one of us.

To the Grand Lodge ofMissouri, A:R & AM.:

During the Grand Lodge year 1987-1988, one local request for assistance from the Grand Lodge Disaster Relief Fund was received. R.W. Brother Wilbert W. Burton, District Deputy Grand Master of the 39th District, requested $2,500.00 to assist in the repair of five homes damaged by a March 23, 1988 tornado in the Rolla area. Aid would be provided at $500 per home. The committee considered this request and forwarded a check for $2,500.00 to be expended for the said purpose. We were informed by the Masonic Service Association that as the result of devastating floods in 'Chile, many have suffered severe losses. As a


110

result of the earthquakes in 1985, Chile has not been able to rebuild charity funding within the country. The committee was informed that all administrative costs associated with the collection and delivery of funds to the Grand Lodge of Chile would be borne by the Masonic Service Association. The committee considered this request and forwarded a check in the amount of $3,000.00 to be expended for said purpose. The committee recommends continuing support of this fund so that in the event of disaster, we shall be in a position to respond quickly and effectively as needs arise. Respectfully submitted, THOMAS

CONTINUED REPORT OF THE JURISPRUDENCE COMMITTEE M.W. Brother Walker, Chairman, continued his report to the Grand Lodge:

XIII. PROPOSAL TO ADD NEW SECTION' 35.025 OF THE BYLAWS "Section 35.025. Referral to Ways and Means. The Jurisprudence Committee may seek advice from the Committee on Ways and Means in respect to any fiscal effect of any proposed legislation." This proposal was read on the first day of this communication for action on 'fuesday, Sept. 27, 1988. M.W. Brother Walker moved that this proposal be adopted. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the new section was ADOPTED.

XIV. PROPOSED STANDING RESOLUTION "It is the sense of the Grand Lodge that each subordinate lodge run a risk of loss from claims for injury. It is therefor recommended that each subordinate lodge acquire liability insurance in the amount of $1,000,000 per person and $300,000 per accident to protect the lodge, its officers and members from loss resulting from injury." M.W. Brother Walkerr stated that the Jurisprudence Committee had


1988

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

119

withdrawn this resolution for consideration.

xv. PROPOSAL TO AMEND SECTION 5.010 OF THE BY-LAWS It is proposed that the By-Laws of the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri be amended as follows by adding thereto the words: "and (V) Insurance." This proposed amendment was presented at the 166th Annual Communication for action at this Grand Lodge Session. M.W. Brother Walker stated that the Jurisprudence Committee had withdrawn this proposed amendment. M.W. Grand Master asked M.W. Brother Walker to inform the Grand Lodge of the matters involved with I.R.S. form 990. M.W. Walker stated that there was a requirement to file an annual report if the lodge's income was over $25,000 with the I.R.S. Failure to file the report may result in loss of tax exempt status. Lodge dues are not tax deductible and dues notices should show that they are not tax deductible, unless it is specified what percent of the dues is given to the Masonic Home. Also, if the lodge has excess funds it may lose its tax exempt status and be assessed a substantial penalty by the I.R.S. If any lodge has excess funds M.W. Brother Walker recommended that they contact their attorney and certified public accountant. M.W. Brother Walker moved that the Report of the Jurisprudence committee, as amended by the Grand Lodge, be adopted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the Report was ADOPTED.

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON GEORGE WASHINGTON MASONIC NATIONAL MEMORIAL M.W. Brother J. Edward Blinn presented the Report of the Special Committee on the George Washington Masonic National Memorial as printed in the booklet "Report of Officers and Committees" and moved that the Report be accepted and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the Report was RECEIVED.

To The Grand Lodge ofMissouri, AR & AM.: No official correspondence or reports have been received by the Committee this year from the Memorial Association, so we have no current progress report. The Memorial has been undergoing very extensive repair and maintenance work which is undoubtedly being continued. This much needed work was made possible by the increased level of contributions from the member Grand Lodges, and it is gratifying to know that this outstanding Memorial to George Washington, and to Freemasonry is being preserved

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON YOUTH R.W. Brother Daniel F. Cole presented the Report of the Committee on Youth as printed in the booklet "Report of Officers and Committees" and moved that the Report be received and printed in the PROCEEDINGS. The motion was seconded and by vote of the Grand Lodge the Report was RECEIVED.

To the Grand Lodge ofMissouri, AR and A.M.: BRETHREN: As any sound construction must be based on a solid foundation, so to, is it necessary that our Fraternity provide itself with a solid foundation by actively supporting our Masonic Youth. Your Committee on Youth has maintained this goal as its guiding star in its deliberations during this past year. Further, recognizing the outstanding efforts and programs instituted by the preceding Committees on Youth, we have endeavored to not only continue their programs but to build upon them as well. One of the most outstanding programs which your Committee has been proud to continue is the Grand Master's Masonic Achievement Award. The young people chosen by our Grand Master as this year's recipients were truly exemplary of the principles of their respective organizations. They are as follows: Sara Diane Freeman - Rainbow Cheryl Smith - Job's Daughters Scott Stever - DeMolay The participation by the three youth groups in this program was overwhelming. The young people that were recommended for consideration were each outstanding and made no easy task for our Grand Master in selecting but one from each organization. The roster of assemblies, bethels and Chapters in Missouri which was developed last year is being updated and will be distributed upon comple-


122

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1988

tion. Also, the list of educational financial assistance has been updated and will also incorporate information for our youth on how to apply for guaranteed loans as well. This information will be disseminated through the various youth groups. Arrangements have been made for our youth groups to have a table at this Grand Lodge to meet and converse with the members here in attendance. The slide program on Masonry for presentation to DeMolay Chapters has been completed in its preliminary form. This Committee was fortunate enough to view the program at its final meeting in August, 1988. The program is an outstanding explanation of Masonry in terms that are understandable to a young DeMolay and can easily be modified for use by Rainbow and Job's Daughters. A very special thanks should go to Keith Klein and Craig Bennett for their efforts in developing this program. The assistance and cooperation of the leaders of the Youth Groups should also not go unnoticed. Special thanks go to Ann Tisdale, Ginny Goede, Jeanne Mueller, and others for their efforts. The participation of these fine people and others from their organizations in the activities of our Fraternity indicates their interest in Masonry's growth. In order to assure and stimulate their continued interest, we should in tum become involved in these youth groups. As an incentive for our subordinate lodges, this Committee would recommend that the Committee on Grand Lodge Education consider the addition of a requirement for obtaining the Grand Lodge Achievement Award. For a lodge to receive that award it would have to satisfy one of the following.: 1. The Lodge's top three officers attend at least one activity of one of the Masonic youth groups during the term of each Worshipful Master; 2. Hold a program at the Lodge for one or more of the Masonic youth groups; or 3. Donate a specified amount to a Masonic Youth Activity.

Your committee on Youth strongly recommends and encourages increased and continued interaction between our Grand Lodge members and the young people of Job's Daughters, Rainbow, and DeMolay. The future of each of these youth groups and of our Fraternity are interdependent, and we should remain mindful of the fact that these young people are our future not only in Masonry, but in our everyday lives. It is up to each of us to see that this foundation remains sound. RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED, ALBERT L. HOWE O. WESLEY KONERING RICHARD A. HOLMES ROBERT W. COCKERHAM RON L. ZUMALT DAVID E.

As you have seen membership loss is a legitimate concern for every jurisdiction within the United States. Nationally membership decreased in 1985 by 77,662, and in 1986 by 74,459. In Missouri our membership in 1985 declined 2,779, in 1986 by 2,537, and in 1987 by 1,911. Even though we are continuing to lose members at least the rate of decline is slowing. Something to be encouraged about? perhaps. In order to gain an insight into the general condition of Freemasonry, an examination at the proceedings of the various jurisdictions is necessary. In. these publications, the problems that we all face and possible solutions are discussed.

POLICY DEBATE The Grand Lodge of Ireland is undergoing the following policy debate: "What was described as "the basis of a framework for a Grand Lodge Policy Document" was presented to the December meeting of Grand Lodge in Freemasons Hall, Dublin, by W. Bro. Arthur W. White (Shakespeare


PROCEEDINGS OF THE

158

1988

Lodge No. 143, Dublin) on behalf of the Metropolitan Board of General Purposes. The Grand Master presided and was supported on the dais by RW Bro. Major George M.Malone, Deputy Grand Master. The matter came before Grand Lodge by way of a composite resolution from the Metropolitan Board, which read as follows: Grand Lodge should 1. Thke steps to reach out to the community and shed the Order's labels of "secret", "sectarian" and "inward looking". 2. Review the mechanics of recruitment taking a more practical approach, but without compromising suitability. 3. Develop a more participative style aimed at the involvement of more younger Brethren with a view to their being placed, if suitable, into some of the leadership positions. 4. Review some aspects of ritual with a view to fostering a wider appeal and dispelling fears but without abandoning any of the fundamental principles of Freemasonry.

5. Encourage development of the social qnd cultural side of the Order to include families and invited none-members. There should be an on-going review and debate at each December Grand Lodge meeting.

In presenting the resolution Bro. White remarked that just as companies had objectives and policies which were reviewed annually so should the order have them and review them. The resolution did not set down how anything should be addressed but rather what should be addressed. It did not set down any objectives but it very deliberately provided for an on-going annual review during which new objectives should be adopted and progress on those of the previous year reviewed.

Labels: Commenting on the first paragraph in regard to the labels, secret, sectarian and inward looking, Bro. White said: "It is a perception of many Metropolitan Masons and I suspect of many throughout the Constitution that the Order is too secret and inward looking. 1b many non-members it is perceived as secret, inward looking and sectarian. In the 1987 Report of the Committee of Younger Master Masons in Antrim, in a strong reference to the Order's public image,the same keywords are used. The public opening in June of the Molesworth Street museum by Dublin's Lord Mayor and hopefully the availability of suitable literature about the Order on that occasion is just one example of how these particular concerns could be addressed." Mechanics of Recruitment: Officially, said Bro. White, it appeared that there should be no misunderstanding on this issue. Nonetheless there was certainly among a sizeable number of Metropolitan Brethren. Again in the


1988

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

159

Younger Master Masons Antrim Report concern was evident in that Province and possibly throughout the jurisdiction. "This paragraph of the resolution is asking for a clarification and re statement of the mechanics of recruitment. Whether or not it is clear to Brethren of the Grand Lodge Board of General Purposes or to most of us here tonight, it is not clear to a lot of Brethren. Most importantly if it is not clear to the younger Brethren it will affect recruitment." Participative Style, Younger Brethren, Leadership: This paragraph did not contain a threat to, or a vote of no路 confidence in, older Brethren, explained Bro. White. Their experience was much valued and essential in the administration of the Order but that experience could often be enhanced with new ideas. Here was where the younger Brethren could play a part. Many new ideas would be unacceptable which is where the experiencedjudgment of the older Brethren played its part. "Many industries today are finding a participative style of management pays off. It is not an abdication of responsibility or authority. It reaches down to all employees and in doing so searches out the concerns and the good ideas, giving that sense of involvement so important to people nowadays - and we are a people of organization. The whole area of communication is tied into the participative style and the proposed News Sheet is a good starting point in the development of that style." Review of Ritual: Bro. White opined that a review of some aspects of Masonic ritual was necessary with a view to fostering a wider appeal and dispelling fears but without abandoning any of the fundamental principals of Freemasonry. He described it as a delicate and sensitive area and no major changes were envisaged. However, to some, possibly a sizeable number of Brethren, there are some irritations. For example they were bored with repetition and there was also a reaction against the strangeness and intimidating nature of the Entered Apprentice Degree. "This section of the resolution signals that there is some concern which must not be overstated and that just as any good business organization will from time to time review its activities, so also should the Order review its ritual. Mter all, ritual is one of our major activities. It is suggested that recommended changes could be drafted by the Grand Lodge of Instruction after a series of private meetings at which all ritual detail had been critically examined." Social, Cultural, Families, Non-Members: This paragraph was selfexplanatory. The family involvement was becoming more and more important among the younger married couples in particular, and a growing number of hard-pressed young executives think twice before abandoning their families on yet another evening. This inclusion of invited non-members at Masonic social functions was a fairly well established practice, at least in some areas and should be actively encouraged. Much of the development in family and non-member involvement must come from the Lodges and the standards set at such like functions must be seen to be high as in all their Masonic activities. Certain amendments


160

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

recently made by Grand Lodge on the recommendation of the Grand Lodge Board of General Purposes were already seen to be encouraging a development in these areas of social and cultural activity and hopefully Grand Lodge would lead further along this road.

Review: Bro. White stressed the importance of an ongoing review and debate at each December Grand Lodge meeting. It was easy to pass resolutions, action was more difficult. It was to monitor their action on this Dublin Metropolitan resolution that made a review necessary. They wanted to discover whether they were achieving their objectives and implementing their policy. It was questions like that that needed to be answered each December. On the proposal of the Deputy Grand Master, it was agreed that there should be an annual review at each December meeting. Bro. White was thanked for his interesting paper which the Grand Master remarked gave them all much food for thought." The Grand Lodge of Ireland is conducting a vigorous debate.One which should be discussed not only in our own but every jurisdiction. ADDRESS OF GRAND MASTERS The Grand Master of New Jersey reported on the establishment of an organizational structure change: "Now, let me highlight some of our programs and accomplishments this past Grand Lodge year. Programs that should benefit all of us. Organization: The first thing that we did was to establish an organizational structure for the Grand Lodge that would reflect an administrative organization on corporate lines, that would provide for centralized strategic planning, coordination and decision making on all policies in getting on with the business of Grand Lodge. An instruction was issued which clarified the position of the Committee Chairman, his authority, prerogative and control. It established policy on meetings, reporting, relationships with other committees and standards by which we could function more efficiently in the execution of the business of the Grand Lodge. It was not easy to get this sleeping giant to roll over and change direction, but it had to be done to ensure the best return for our cause of efforts. We needed to establish guarantees that we are managing in fact and not paying lip service to a concept. There is still much to be done. So, as recommendation No.1, I recommended that this continue to be developed and an organizational manual be prepared for use by the Grand Lodge. We need to move into the 21st century in our running of the affairs of Grand Lodge and this is one step towards that goal. Organizational restructuring was only one area to be worked. We looked at many areas in an effort to vitalize the craft and increase our capabilities to sustain our programs and operation. One man can't do it all and he can't do it alone. Doing, however, we must be firm, positive and yet gentle with our gentle craft. We cannot ramrod or bull our way no matter how much needed the


1988

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

161

change for the revitalization may be necessary, but again, something had to be done to insure the best return for our investment of time and talent as we labor together for the brethren. I am speaking at the Grand Lodge level of endeavor." The Grand Master of Arizona reported on membership 10s8: "It had been my hope that I would be able to report that the state of the Craft was excellent and that our membership was increasing, or at least slowing its decline. Such is not the case. In 1986, we lost more more members than ever before. The number of members suspended for non payment of dues and the number of candidates who have failed to advance remains high. These gross numbers, however, may not reflect the true state of the Craft. A number of our lodges are in excellent condition, a few in serious trouble. Some lodges have experienced a gain in membership and meet almost every week for degree work, practice, or special activities. Others, in seemingly similar circumstances, rarely meet except for stated meetings." The Grand Master of Utah expressed concern for the financial well being of their lodges: "My great concern is for the financial well being of our Lodges and their ability to maintain their buildings and other financial responsibilities. If some immediate action is not taken I fear that the problem may be terminal for some. . When the Lodge initiates twelve members and still loses ground in membership, we must step back and analyze our situation. While I anticipate and hope that we may at least hold our own, I foresee no upswing in membership that will solve this problem of financial distress. Sincere efforts have been undertaken to reduce non-payment of dues. They have met with, at best, lukewarm results. I have personally written to sixtyseven Brethren, one or more years delinquent in dues, and received replies from four. Two wanted to be dropped, one was financially distressed.and received remittance, and the fourth paid his dues. When you consider that some Lodges' net income will not pay the heating bill, that membership is down; that non-payment of dues, at best, is level, then the solution seems only to be more consolidations, or a large dues increase. During the immediate years before us, some difficult and unpleasant decisions are approaching. Still, these decisions ~ be faced. I urge you, the Masters and Wardens, to join together with your Grand Lodge and take action now. Even with this gloomy side to the conditions before us, let me further state that, within this room today are men who can and will solve these problems. Some of you may recall that I entered this Office with enthusiasm and. eagerness. My Brethren, I assure you that I have not lost that enthusiasm, nor have I been discouraged by what I have experienced and seen during my tenure. Quite the contrary, I am encouraged by the vigor and determination of the Officers and members of this Grand Lodge . In all cases, when adversity has occurred,intelligent decisions and actions have been taken. Unfortunately, it is only when these situations present themselves that we take action." .The Grand Master of Virginia states that we need "designs on

the trestle board" for our members as follows: "It's regrettable, but I feel it's my duty to report situations and conditions to you that are not pleasant and probably tell you some things that you don't want to hear about the things that I have observed across the state this year. Out of 355 regular Lodges that we have in this Commonwealth, I dare say that there is not one really strong Lodge. Does that shock you? Good, that's what it was supposed to do! When our Operative ancestors began a task, the Master placed designs upon the trestleboard for the workmen to follow. 'Tho many Lodges are trying to operate today with no designs on the trestle'board! When our Operative ancestors began a task, they had lofty goals in mind as they went about their work. Most Lodges today seem to have no goals at all and unfortunately no real purpose of existing. When our Operative ancestors began a task, they had a Master Workman who was looked up to by a)) of the Craftsmen because they knew he was well trained and would lead them. 'Ibday we are struggling to find anyone who will accept a position as a Lodge officer, whether he is qualified or not. These aren't new problems Brethren! These problems have been with us for years and years. Come down to the Grand Lodge Library sometime and read some of the articles in the old "Virginia Masonic Journals" of the late 1800's, and you')) see that they had same problems then, that we have today. The time has come when we have to let the world know who we are, what we stand for, what we do as an organization and how they can become a part of that organization. Someone once said, "We're drinking from the well we didn't dig and we're eating from the tree we didn't plant." Well, whether we dug it or planted it, it's ours to maintain and preserve. In the past we were blessed with great leaders in our Lodges as well as in our Grand Lodge, men who were devoted to the principles which we believe. They weren't any smarter than the leaders we have today, they just worked harder at being leaders!" MEMBERSHIP The Grand Lodge of Kansas has a Selective Invitation Program. The Grand Master comments: "It is my firm belief that the true results of our Selective Invitation Program will not be obvious for several years. We have many inhibitions to overcome. We have many attitudes to change and probably the largest obstacle of all is to overcome the generation gap that has been created through the social changes during the past thirty years. My Brothers, you are going to have to forget the past in regard to solicitation and get to work. Talk about Masonry. Be proud you are a Mason and find those that may have an interest. It should be obvious by now they are not going to come to you!" The Grand Master of Vermont recommended a solicitation pro-


1988

GRAND LOWE OF MISSOURI

163

gram for new members: "I recommend that this Grand Lodge permit "Solicitation of New Members". The Grand Lodge of England, our Mother Grand Lodge, permits solicitation of members. We should follow our Mother Grand Lodge." The recommendation was referred to the Jurisprudence Committee; the recommendation was not brought before the Grand Lodge for a vote by the Brethren. The Grand Master of Japan commented on Lodge attendance: "There have been many articles written on Lodge attendance. I am partial to the commentary on Masonry that made the following statements: "The most effective way of preventing any droppings, is to bring the candidate into membership in a Lodge which is so attractive, which provides so much for its members, which puts on such good degrees, which provides such interesting Masonic occasions for its members that none are willing to be dropped. Our first obligation, of course, is to scrupulously follow the monitor in our practice of Masonic rules and regulations. Accepting this practice as the primary controlling premise, then I think the next obligation of a Master of a Lodge is to so tailor his Lodge's activities to (1) impress the new candidate with every phrase of the pre-degree, degree and post-degree work and (2) by these same activities, so motivate the brethren and impress the visitors with our dedication, sincerity and fellowship, that they will look forward not only to the weekly meetings but also look forward to participating in these meetings. Keeping in touch is as much the answer to suspensions as any other solution. We spend so much time and effort trying to attract new petitioners; should we not strive as hard to keep those new members as well as our old members? If we had been able to eliminate the suspensions for non-payment of dues and the dropping for non proficiency, we could have reduced our total losses by nearly 77%. Isn't this a very sobering thought?" The Grand Lodge of Western Australia is looking for benefits from involving Entered Apprentices in regularly scheduled Lodge activities: "Entered Apprentices' Evening - The success of these evenings can be seen by the great attendances of brethren and their ladies at each function. This would be one of the most rewarding occasions for a Grand Master. I have noticed over the past three years that the age group has become a lot younger and this argues well for the future of Freemasonry. I extend my thanks and appreciation to all the Past Grand Masters, the Deputy Grand Master and Grand Officers and their ladies who have accepted the invitation to attend these evenings in order to help me extend the hand of friendship to our newly admitted members." The Grand Master of Dlinois reports on the practice of sending a letter to the lady of each new Entered Apprentice: This letter explains the history and charitable work of our fraternity. The letter was designed to answer many of the questions that a wife of a Master Mason might have. The Grand Master reports continued success in this project. The Grand Lodge of Scotland recognizes a special need for


164

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1988

members that wish to read publications concerned with Freemasonry: MASONIC BOOKS FOR THE BLIND "The Grand Lodge Library has available in Braille the following books, published for Freemasons by the Royal National Institute for the Blind: The Ritual of the Entered Apprentice Degree The Ritual of the Fellow-Craft Degree The Ritual of the Master Mason Degree The Ri tual for the Installed Master Ceremony The Ritual of the Royal Arch Degree. All these books are based on English "Emulation Working" and do not take account of Scottish Working. Nevertheless they may be of use and interest to blind Freemasons. Under the present Post Office Regulations they are carried post free if the package is clearly marked "Literature for the Blind". Applications to borrow these books should be made by the Lodge Secretary to Grand Secretary, Freemasons' Hall, 96 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3DH." EDUCATION It is generally recognized that Masonic Education is an important facet of any Grand Lodge program. The Grand Master of Wisconsin states: "There is a definite hunger as well as an obvious need for continuing Masonic education. Most Masons have never been exposed to more than what is taught by and during our degrees whereas there is much more to learn. In fact, most Masons are unable to intelligently discuss our Craft with the uninitiated. We have approached this need in a wide variety of ways such as the Counselor system, suggested Masonic libraries and readings, lodge discussions such as the "Three-Minute Mason" and other projects of the Masonic Education Committee. All of these are excellent and deserve your support and implementation in your lodges. In a further effort to provide enlightenment on Masonic subjects and create a more well-informed brotherhood, the Unity Conference has formed a committee consisting of representatives of the Grand Lodge, Scottish Rite, York Rite and Shrine. This committee is charged with the responsibility of creating and promoting a series of informative and entertaining get-togethers for all Freemasons. We have high hopes and expectations that we can make these appealing and popular forums to "Talk Freemasonry."

The Grand Lodge of Iowa seeks to fulfill need for Masonic Education with the following: Speakers' Bureau "A unique service offered by the Lodge Service Committee is the Grand Lodge Speakers' Bureau. These men give freely of their time, and their talents, and share their enthusiasm for Freemasonry with lodges at


1988

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

165

George Washington Birthday Observances, Friendship nights, Fifty-Year Member Recognition Nights, Masonic Education Nights, Ladies' Nights, Table Lodges...the list goes on and on. The unique part (and perhaps important item for many lodges) of this program is that it is provided FREE OF CHARGE to any Iowa lodge. During the past year, many members of our "crew" were called into service, and continued to do an outstanding job. If your lodge is hosting a special event in the next lodge year, be sure to contact our office and we will make all the necessary arrangements for a speaker. Please try to give plenty of advance time so that a speaker may have ample time to prepare. The following brothers have been called into service to speak during the past year: Paul Berger Edwin D. Blinks Robert D. Butler George Carr Steve Colerick Lawrence N. Crail Rick Crooks Tom Eggleston Max E. Ellis Richard Faxon Kirk Fowler Donald Guthrie, Jr. Robert G. Hibbs Donald H. TIes

A special thank you to these brothers for their service to Freemasonry during the past year in this special way. The Grand Orator of New Jersey made recommendations that would institute the New Jersey Masonic University: "However, we discovered that ail of our biggest problems, those of membership decreases, faltering leadership and sporadic attendance, can be addressed by one word - EDUCATION - EDUCATION - learning is the key to our very existence. Hence, I am recommending that New Jersey take the lead in establishing a total education concept based on our present National Higher Education System. I recommend that we establish the New Jersey Masonic University, NJMU. This would devise, plan and administer a series of courses and curriculum to teach the numerous aspects of Free Masonry to our officers, brethren and new initiates. To this end, I, therefore, submit the following recommendation: No. l. It is recommended that the Grand Lodge function as a sponsoring institution for the New Jersey Masonic University much in the same manner as our present church sponsored colleges and universities providing guidance, monies and man powers, as necessary. Recommendation No.2: It is recommended that the Education Committee function as the Board of Regents overseeing the curriculum, man-


166

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1988

aging the budget and providing adequate classroom space, textbooks and supplies. They would also consider the qualifications of potential instructors and engage them for teaching the courses. Recommendation No.3: It is recommended that the position of Grand Orator be continued and made a permanent place on the Grand Lodge Staff. He would have the same rank and prestige as the Grand Instructor and would function in the same way and manner as that of a College President. His duties would consist of obtaining and recommending qualified instructors overseeing the preparation of lesson plans and their presentation and the supervision of the day-to-day functions of the New Jersey Masonic University. Recommendation No.4: It is recommended that courses consisting of four 90 minutes class sessions be devised and taught by qualified instructors under the guidance of the Grand Orator and the. Educational Committee. I recommend that they be taught on a regional basis in individual Lodge Buildings with the subjects rotated throughout the state. Special courses could be taught in the Grand Lodge Buildings perhaps, on the second floor, where special teaching materials could be kept without disturbance. Correspondence courses could be offered for those unable to attend the regular class sessions. Recommendation No.5: It is recommended that the Grand Order in conjunction with the Education Committee establish several courses which could be combined in the curricula leading to diplomas awarded in given majors of endeavor. For instance, courses in History of Free Masonry before 1700; the Organization of the First Grand Lodge; and Free Masonry in America might be combined in their curriculum in history and evolution of Free Masonry. Or perhaps, program development, Masonic Jurisprudence and Budget Management might be combined in their curriculum in Lodge Government of Officers. Lastly, Recommendation No.6: It is recommended that Graduation Ceremonies for both course completion and the prestigious major curriculum completion be held on a yearly basis. These graduation exercises could involve a dinner, diploma, gifts, speeches and all the accouterments of academia and should involve family and friends as well. In summary, I believe that we must start a Program of Masonic Education for everyone. Officers, brethren and new initiates alike. To accomplish this I recommend that the New Jersey Masonic University be established to develop curricula and course work leading to an enlightened craft. This University could become the model for all other jurisdictions and there is no reason why they could not also avail themselves of our expertise, sending students on for training. It will indeed require hard work. But, then we are no strangers to that. All Temple building requires work. It will require some of you to be teachers, some of you to be administrators, and most of you to be students. So, we ask for your support and help in this large undertaking. But then, our very existence depends upon it. Respectfully submitted, R.W. Brother Theodore E. Torok, Grand orator.

M.W. GRAND MASTER SACKETT: Brethren, it has regularly moved and seconded that the Grand Orator's Report be received and spread upon the minutes of these proceedings. All in favor give the ancient voting sign of a Mason. April 29, 1987 M.W. GRAND MASTER SACKETT: Hands down, those opposed. M.W. GRAND MASTER SACKETT: Down hands, so ordered." The Grand Lodge of New Jersey instituted the University and I have been informed that it has been a tremendous success, thus far.

The Grand Lodge of Wisconsin recognizes the benefits of Leadership Training: LEADERSHIP TRAINING "One of the goals of our Grand Master George A. Wallinger is to have every lodge in Wisconsin complete the Leadership 'fraining Course, and prepare, print and distribute to all members a complete program of activities for 1987. Such a varied program of activities will hopefully increase participation by lodge members,and attract potential new rpembers. The Leadership Training Course, originally developed by the Joint Education Committee, and taught by fifteen to twenty specially trained "instructors" was made part of the District program this year, with responsibility resting with the District Deputy and Area Administrators. They were taught the course at staff meetings in July, August or September, and were to teach the course to their area lodges in October or November. Each lodge was to prepare and print a program of activities in November or December, distributing the program to their lodge members around Installation of Officers. Both the Leadership Training Manual and Leadership Training Workbook were revised and updated, with copies made available for all District Deputies, Area Administrators, and each lodge. Follow up presentations were made at many District meetings, with a special four page handout given to each lodge. Grand Master George A. Wallinger gave special emphasis to the program throughout the year in his "Grand Master's Message" in the Masonic Journal. His direction, instruction and motivation helped many see the importance of the entire program. The goal of having 100% of lodges participate is perhaps unrealistic, but that did not keep the District Deputies and Area Administrators from giving their best efforts. While we are still collecting data on the Grand Lodge Office, it appears that 70-80% of lodges completed the Leadership Training Course, and prepared a program of activities for their lodge. RECOMMENDATIONS My recommendations include keeping the Leadership Training Course in the hands of the District Deputy and Area Administrators, with the trained "instructors" assisting. The recommended time table would have


168

1988

the Area Administrators teach the Leadership Training Courses to their lodges in September or October, each lodge to prepare their program of activities in October and November, then print and distribute that program to members in December or January. The current Leadership Training "instructors" need a new challenge, which might include teaching new courses under development, such as budget preparation, or "how to run a meeting." The District team needs to evaluate and critique activity programs, to share and encourage exceptionally good ideas, and improve ideas of lesser quality. The teaching materials for the Leadership Training Course need to be updated for 1988, including adding a calendar for 1989, replacing the two sample "activity programs" in the handout, and changing the Thol Box message from the Grand Master. CONCLUSION More lodges than ever participated in Leadership Training this year, and I feel that many lodges benefited. Lodges with a varied, interesting program of activities attract both members, and new members. My special "thank you" to the District Deputies and Area Administrators who did an outstanding job of promoting this program. John Bauernfeind, Grand Sword Bearer Report recei ved." PUBLIC RELATIONS

The Grand Master of Rhode Island in commenting on public relations stated: "Public relations in some Grand jurisdictions, has become large and very active, in relatively a short period of time. They have secured commercials for Radio and T.V., bought newspaper ads, bill boards and printed flyers for general distribution. This surge in public relations, is to create a new awareness, as to who we are, what we do and what we stand for with the general public." The Grand Lodge of Connecticut was a fair booth to promote awareness: FAIR BOOTH PROMOTIONS "For the past two years the Goshen Fair Grounds has proven to be an excellent vehicle for promoting awareness of our Fraternity to the public. A tent has been rented by the local Masons who then set up a display consisting of the Story Boards from our Masonic Home and Hospital, posters depicti ng locations and names of Lodges, Eastern Star Chapters, Rainbow Assemblies and DeMolay Chapters. Along with these items are brochures from all Organizations participating in the booth, a video player is run for

the duration of the Fair showing the Quiet Fraternity film. Coffee and pastry are provided at no cost. Folding chairs were set out for those wishing to relax or watch the video presentation. This program was conceived by the Brother Frank Kesl who continues to be our program coordinator. Members of the Committee have been present for the three days of the Fair to answer questions and assist in the operation of the booth. This past year was more successful than the previous year. Then we received three r.equests for petitions for membership, this year we received eleven requests for petitions. We feel this may prove to be a valuable asset to our portfolio of public relations tools, and we are looking into expanding this Fair booth concept. Note that eleven requests for petitions were received from this promotion in one year." Community involvement is stressed in a Virginia program:

COMMUNITY BLOOD PROGRAM "I am extremely proud of the work of the Chairman and all of the members of the Community Blood Donor Program Committee and all of the District Blood Coordinators. Everywhere I have traveled in this state I have been made aware of the good works of these men and how much exposure our Lodges are getting from our community involvement through this program. I set a goal of seven thousand pints of blood to be contributed through this program this year and the Chairman of the committee tells me that we have exceeded this in 1987. I thank all of the Brethren who so ably assisted our committee in obtaining our goal this year. You will hear an in-depth report on this program tomorrow and the new awards program begun this year to honor Lodges who have met the criteria established to receive these awards." The Grand Lodge of Oklahoma is making a strong commitment to public relations: "We strongly agree that the good works and influences of Freemasonry can become widely known and appreciated by scores of good men who have not yet investigated our noble fraternity. By appropriately educating and informing the general public of our glorious history, our proven philosophies, ane! our great philanthropies, we can most assuredly realize the rewards of an ever growing and viable fraternity. The publicity and public relations program has made considerable advances this past year. Emphasis has been placed on initiating a highway billboard campaign designed to simply place the word "Mason" before the public eye in a way that encourages a positive feeling about our fraternity to all who see the bill boards. This campaign has been implemented in the Oklahoma City and 'fulsa metropolitan areas this year. it is proposed that additional bill boards be placed on the interstate highways entering Oklahoma, and in other centers of economic influence within the State. It is hoped this campaign can be continued for a long enough period of time to introduce most Oklahomans to the fact that Masonry intends to be visible


170

and publicly known for years to come. The public image building campaign through the radio and television media is nearing completion after more than a year of development. Public service announcements for radio have been taped and a plan for statewide distribution of these is now complete. Contracts for television spots over the next twelve months are presently being drawn for the consideration of the Grand Lodge 'Ih1stees. Cooperative funding agreements with our appendant bodies are also being prepared to encourage a maximum dissimenation of television spots to every station in Oklahoma. Responses to the suggestion of a statewide cooperative media effort from leaders of our appendant organizations have been quite favorable. It is generally agreed that Masonry can benefit greatly from the wise and proper utilization of media technology. A constituent lodge community activities handbook has also been completed this year. Designed to educate and inform the officers and active workers at the Blue Lodge level about how to organize, fund, and implement community projects, this handbook should prove beneficial to local lodge programs aimed at creating community visibility. It is hoped that this "Blue Book for Masonry" will prove to be a valuable tool for promoting and encouraging public activity by our constituent lodges. There can be no better way to guarantee interest in Masonry than to be visible, active, working partners with our communities in addressing community needs. The Grand Lodge Eye-Screening program, undertaken this year in cooperation with the Oklahoma Society to Prevent Blindness, is a wonderful example of how quickly our Fraternity can become recognized as being a positive contributing force for good. In the very short period of time our eye screening program has been implemented. Oklahoma masons have already achieved statewide recognition as being the principle sponsor of this worthy and needed program in most Oklahoma communities. Brethren, publicity and public relations is an ever-evolving, constantly changing program. In one or two years it may seem that little progress is made. But the image building is a subtle process. It simply evolves over time and grows and grows. It feeds on itself. And it is progressive. But it must be nurtured each year to remain successful. It is therefore strongly urged that Masonry and Masons in Oklahoma arduously continue its support for this vital program. Continued funding by the Grand Lodge is essential to implement the important programs which have been in the developing stages over the past year. Continued support of our constituent lodges and their efforts to provide meaningful philanthropy and programs within their communities is necessary. And continued progress in educating and informing the non-masonic public about our old and beloved institution is most certainly in order in this fast-paced time where good men are seeking membership in strong and active organizations which are contributing to the well being of their communities."

RITUAL There has been extensive discussion concerning the place of


1988

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

171

RituaR in Freemasonry. The Grand Master of Montana issued the following proclamation: "Au~st 28. 1985 - Proclaimed that the minimum acceptable examination to be passed by Entered Apprentices, Fellow Crafts, and Master Masons consist of (1) memorization of the Obligation in full; pages 29, 83 and 156 of the Mnemonics; (2) the perfect points of entry, grips and words; and (3) a narrative knowledge of Freemasonry as contained in the The Lodge System of Masonic Education or the Masonic Service Association's publication Tried and Proyen." The Grand Lodge of Oregon passed an amendment which states that the candidates proficiency of the Master Mason degree be given to the satisfaction of the Master (of the Lodge). The amendment further states that for good reason the lodge may petition the Grand Master for a dispensation to waive the examination. The Grand Master of Queensland has strongly recommended the deletion of the penalties from the obligation. He states that he has not hesitated to present his views concerning this deletion when visiting lodges within their jurisdiction. The Grand Lodge of Oklahoma promotes Ritual with statewide competitions as an attempt to increase fraternalism. The Grand Master states: "The statewide ritual competition was undertaken more as a means of increasing fraternalism than as an attempt to improve the rendering of our ritual. The intent of the competition among individuals was to allow a member of a smaller lodge an equal opportunity to display his talent against a member of a larger lodge. It was felt that the original competition on a district or area basis would have the flavor of Grand Lodge School where fraternalism is certainly found at a high level. I am somewhat encouraged by the results achieved though I had hoped for more. W. "Mike" Wood did an outstanding job as Chairman of the committee, and the competition finals and rally at Guthrie were a great success."

MISCELLANEOUS The Grand Master of Illinois addresses inquiries concerning Black Freemasons in their jurisdiction: "Many questions are being asked about the black men in Illinois freemasonry. As many of you are aware, there are a number of black men in our fraternity in lllinois. The exact number is not known. They have entered the craft one at a time in the time-honored manner. During my term we had one lodge with a black Worshipful Master. To my knowledge we have experienced no problems and each lodge is acting in a truly masonic manner. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity." The Grand Master of Dlinois attended a banquet honoring the Most Worshipful Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, State of Dlinois: "I attended a public banquet honoring Archie C. Senter, Most Worship-


172

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

1988

ful Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, State of lllinois and Jurisdiction. We are both residents of Lake County and have known each other for some time. "The history of Prince Hall Freemasonry in the United States of America is a fascinating study of freemasonry and black men. In Boston, Massachusetts, on March 6, 1775, fifteen (15) free black men including one named Prince Hall, were initiated into Masonry in Castle William (now Fort Independence) in Boston Harbor by Masonic Lodge '441, attached to the British garrison 38th Regiment of Foot, as a military Lodge from the Grand Lodge of Ireland. Sergeant John B. Batt is listed as Worshipful Master. From that beginning has grown the Prince Hall Grand Lodge. The Prince Hall Affiliation masons are masons, but their regularity is not generally acknowledge". "Many subscribe the division of the Grand Lodges in the United States to no more than the effect of a divided society. What the future holds is certainly an interesting question. Certainly, mutual respect and consideration between both groups is consistent with two independent bodies both claiming membership in a great universal society." The Grand Lodge of New Mexico is arguing the merits of their tax-exempt status: "As each of you are painfully aware, the Grand Lodge of New Mexico and the Taxation and Revenue Department entered into a suit in the District Court of Santa Fe County in 1985. As a result of the trial, Judge Bruce E. Kaufman ruled in favor of the Grand Lodge. The Taxation and Revenue Department filed an appeal with the Court of Appeals of New Mexico on May 2, 1985. Additional briefs in the case were filed on March 23, 1987, and on July 18, 1987 the court remanded the case back to the District Court for lack of jurisdiction and that due process of law had not been followed. On July 28, 1987, a Writ of Certiorari was filed with the Supreme Court of New Mexico. The Supreme Court declined to hear the matter which left us to no recourse except to argue the merits of our taxexempt status on a county by county basis. On September 23, 1987, I met with Jerry Bloomfield, our attorney, William Gilbert and Ron Brinkman in Santa Fe and as a result of that meeting on September 28, 1987, I issued the directive to the Lodges instructing them on their course of action if they were served with notices of evaluation by the County Assessors. Presently the Counties of Chaves, Lea, San Juan and Santa Fe have declared the properties of Masonic Lodges and affiliated bodies, (except income producing properties) exempt from ad valorem taxes. There are indications, at this time, that we will be participating in protest hearings at Bernalillo, Colfax, and Dona Counties. On October 6,1987, John Irck and I met with Honorable Garrey Carruthers, Governor of the State of New Mexico, to discuss our situation. he requested chronological chain of events from the Taxation and Revenue Department at that time. I have written follow-up letters on October 12,1987 and February 1, 1988. I had hoped to report additional information at this Annual Communication. We will proceed to argue the merits of our tax-exempt status before the Protest Boards and upon losing the

first pro~st ,~e will again file an appeal with the Courts of Appeals of New MeXIco.

The Grand Lodge of Wisconsin has a working Long Range Planning Committee: "The Long Range Planning Committee is composed of the appointed line officers of the Grand Lodge with the exception of the Senior Grand Deacon. The Junior Grand Deacon serves as chairman. The committee is charged by the Wisconsin Masonic Code, under the direction of the Grand Master, to establish long range goals, analyze trends and make recommendations relative to their findings. This committee meets immediately prior to each full staff meeting of the Grand Lodge officers. This year the committee enthusiastically considered a varietY of topics with some special sub-committee assignments and reports being made. Complete minutes of all meetings are on file at the Grand Lodge office. The following topics were studied: 1. Establishment of a "Masonic College." 2. Preparation of an information packet for use in public relations. 3. Relationship of the Masonic Fraternity and the Church. 4. Changing the penalties of the obligations. 5. Establishment of a provision to split degree work to more than one communication. 6. Promotion of the Perpetual Membership Plan. 7. Establishment of membership age distribution curves for Lodges and possible use of this information. 8. Establishment of minimums for Lodge dues and degree fees. 9. Masonic Square and Compasses Week. 10. Establishment of a program for college students. 11. Looking ahead to the 150th Anniversary Celebration for the Grand Lodge AF&AM of Wisconsin. 12. Establishment of a new method of delegate voting at the annual communication. It is evident and should be noted that there is much unfinished work for this committee to study and evaluate due to the wide range and number of items considered. I am pleased to report that the committee did make the following recommendations to Grand Master Wallinger and the Executive Committee: 1. That a "Masonic College" be established in which educatiQnal materials can be made available to the candidate, in addition to posting. This education would be required for advancement, be presented by Lodge Counselors and be administered on an area level. Wives might be invited to attend. 2. That an information packet to be used for public relations be prepared. The information should basically concern this Symbolic Lodge but also include brief descriptions of appendant organizations and youth groups. 3. That no public response be made to critics concerning the relation-


174

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

ship of the Masonic Fraternity and the Church. We further recommended that Mason-Clergy programs be used to disseminate information. 4. That the Area Administrator system be used to promote the Perpetual Membership Plan as an on-going program. The Wisconsin Masonic Journal, pamphlets and trestleboards should also be used to promote the plan. 5. That the required minimum for Lodge dues remain at the present level and that minimum for the degree fees be increaed. 6. That the Masonic Square and Compasses Week be a continuing program. 7. That the Masonic Organization be established for College Students based on Masonic teachings. A pilot program should be instituted on the U.W. Stevens Point campus. A set of suggested guidelines was provided. 8. That a new method of voting at the annual communication be established. We further recommended that the pac.ket for each Lodge contain three fluorescent colored cards and that voting be by holding up these cards. The committee prepared two resolutions for submission at the annual communication as directed by the Grand Master. One is to change the ritual to explain the true penalty for violating the obligation and to state that the ancient penalties as stated in the obligation are symbolic. The other deals with changing the fine levied against a Lodge for non-attendance at the annual communication. I wish to thank each member of the Long Range Planning Committee for the many hours of frank, thoughtful and thorough study and discussion of the topics presented for consideration. Our fraternity is indeed fortunate to have such devoted members." CONCLUSION According to membership records and the average age of members, a concise report of the condition of Freemasonry could be summed up in one word - terminal! We must look beyond the obvious! The silver lining in this dark cloud of declining membership is that the Masonic Fraternity will be forced to adapt itself through innovative thought. An organization that has existed as long as this one has, must have faced many difficult situations. It is self evident that those problems were solved. I am confident that we will meet and defeat the problems of 20th century Freemasonry. We have read of many innovative programs from various jurisdictions. If leadership is forthcoming from our Grand Lodge officers, cooperation from our committees and understanding from our brothers, there is no problem that cannot be reversed. Fraternally submitted, C. ALEXANDER, Chairman
