38 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

My Brethren: 

Once more, my Brethren, we are assembled in 
the City of Toronto, — this time for the 96th Annual 
Communication of our Grand Lodge; and for the 
second time we thank Brother Hiram E. McCallum, 
Mayor of the City of Toronto, for coming' to our 
meeting and extending such a kind and gracious 
welcome. Again we are indebted to the Board 
of Education for this fine auditorium in which we 
meet and we extend to them our sincere thanks. 
And we would be negligent if we did not express 
to the Police Department our appreciation for their 
unfailing and efficient direction of traffic around 
our place of meeting. As I stated a year ago, an 
Annual Communication of our Grand Lodge entails 
a great deal of work for the Past Masters', Masters' 
and the Wardens' Associations wherever it is held 
and we do wish to let them know that we appreciate 
all they have done to make this Annual Communi- 
cation the great success that it is. 

There are two other members to whom I wish 
to accord our thanks and appreciation. For many 
years they have served in a capacity which carries 
with it little glamour and much less recognition. 
Very few of those who have the privilege of attend- 
ing these gatherings realize that Very Worshipful 
Brother J. W. Hamilton, Chairman of the Committee 
on Credentials and Very Worshipful Brother E. B. 
Thompson, Chairman of the Committee of Scruti- 
neers, have been serving our Grand Lodge in a 
most valued manner and with quiet efficiency. 
Seldom is it possible for these two worthy Brethren 
to attend the meetings of Grand Lodge or to enjoy 
the Grand Master's Annual Dinner. During this 
time they are either making the necessary arrange- 
ments for the ballot or are summing up the result 
of the election. We also wish to express here our 
sincerest thanks to that worthy band of scrutineers 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 39 

who serve from year to year, motivated only by 
their desire to serve the Craft in general and our 
Grand Lodge in particular. 

For many years our Grand Lodge Communi- 
cations have been signally honoured by the presence 
of a large number of representatives of Freemason- 
ry, from Grand Lodges in Canada and in the United 
States. Some are here for the first time; others 
have been with us on many occasions. Whether 
this is your first visit or whether you have been 
with us before, we extend to you a most hearty 
welcome and we trust that your stay among us 
will be a most pleasant one and one that you will 
long remember. 

As my term of office is rapidly drawing to a 
close, it is necessary to give a final accounting of 
my stewardship as Grand Master. I contemplate 
the record and commit to paper this report to give 
you as far as possible a complete picture of my 
administration. 

As I write this final Address a host of emotions 
crowd into my conciousness. Would that I could 
write of a world at peace. Truly these are anxious 
days. The world seems caught in a veritable 
maelstrom. It is impossible not to have sympathy 
with those who have charge of international re- 
lationships. Regardless of what decisions are made, 
there are those who will disagree. Would that 
some power could be given to foresee the result of 
their decisions! How many pitfalls, how many 
errors could be avoided, if only hindsight could 
reveal the future. In my message to you a year 
ago, little did I think that we would be facing the 
crisis of today. Since then the relations among 
the nations of the world have become worse. There 
never was a crisis in history such as there is today — 
not a war for territory but a war for principles — 
a war of minds and standards and ideologies. How- 
ever, those of you who recall the late thirties will 
remember that we faced a terrifying situation at 
that time. I might suggest, to any of you who 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

are fearful, that you think back to the days when 
dictators were goose-stepping- across Europe. The 
responsibility of directing our destinies is in the 
hands of many capable men and we can do little 
about it but ask God's guidance in their decisions. 

In striving to understand world affairs as we 
all do, and in seeking to know the involved circum- 
stances pertaining thereto, we can reduce our per- 
plexity to one fundamental principle, which is that 
it will be either the church or the hammer and sickle 
for the generations who will become our future 
citizens. 

Happily there is another side. It isn't so spec- 
tacular, so dramatic, so exciting; it isn't noisy and 
often its colours are subdued but it is a part of the 
world of today, just as it was a part of the world 
of yesterday and will be tomorrow. It is eternal 
and in it grow the roots of faith, hope and charity. 
The spark of Divinity in man has not been lost. 
There still dwells in his heart the spirit of love. 
One of our troubles is our inability to see all things 
in proper perspective. Because of that, a two 
inch headline far out-weighs in importance a simple 
act of kindness that never rates print at all, yet 
may influence a multitude of lives. These little 
acts of kindness — and many big ones — are happening 
around you every day. They are done by people 
like you. Very likely you do some of them. To 
their eternal credit counts the fact that most people 
do these things and think little of it. 

Even into the grim and terrible business of 
war that spirit of goodness and love marches with 
our soldiers. Who has not read stories or seen 
pictures of them risking life and limb to help their 
fellows or the innocent victims of conflict, especially 
children? If the brutal work of war cannot oblit- 
erate that unborn spirit of charity, love and decency 
we need not lose our faith in humanity. 

Yes, verily, the world is full of bad things and 
bad people who do bad things but it is also well 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 41 

supplied with good people who do all manner of 
good things — things you never hear about, yet they 
make their impression upon the life of our day. 

So long as people are ready with help and 
assistance to those who have been unfortunate; so 
long as many people hold in their hearts a love of 
beauty, music and friendship, we can know that 
the image of the Creator has not all been lost. 

Was there ever a passport into more wonderful 
friendships than that represented by your mem- 
bership in Masonry? When you extend your hand 
in fellowship and understanding, it is received, not 
by a limited group, but by millions. 

Pause and consider what your Masonic mem- 
bership is worth to you — not in dollars, but in 
things that dollars cannot buy. 

May I suggest that thought be given to the 
strength and inspiration that we receive from the 
lessons of Masonry and how those lessons enrich 
our lives and broaden our vision. They even make 
possible an education, the like of which is not 
possible through any other course of instruction. 

There is the constant need and privilege of 
service which Masonry offers, and the happiness 
derived from such service and sacrifice. 

When we enter the portals of Freemasonry 
we evidently have certain qualifications which are 
necessary to become a Mason, and if we take stock 
of ourselves we will find that we have grown spir- 
itually and mentally over the years that we have 
worked in the Craft. 

Many of you have looked upon the face of a 
Brother who is about to receive a medal for fifty 
years of service to Masonry. Imagine just what 
Masonry has meant to such Masons! They were 
proud occasions when I had the great privilege 
of presenting this medal and I have remarked what 
an inspiration they should be to the younger 
members. 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Truly, as I have said many times, we are the 
windows through which the world looks at Masonrv 
and, remember, this is the only way that the rest of 
the world can judge just what Masonry really is. 
When I say this, I mean that every member of our 
Fraternity is a window of Masonry. Whether he 
be the youngest or oldest member, whether he be 
an officer of the Lodge or the Worshipful Master 
or a member of Grand Lodge or the Grand Master, 
we are all the windows through which the world 
looks and judges Masonry. Let us see to it, let 
us make sure that we keep these windows bright 
and shining and make them a living memorial so 
that those who come after will be inspired to carry 
on the torch of Freemasonry and the world cannot 
help feeling the goodness of that influence. 

It has been said that an organization must 
justify its existence. Our aim is the building of 
character; we take the material that comes to us 
and try to make better men out of that material. 
If Freemasonry does that, it has lived up to its 
purpose and has fulfilled its highest ideals. 

Should we not give thanks to God that we are 
privileged to live in a land where Masonry is free 
to practise its precepts; a land where we can think 
for ourselves, work where we desire, worship in 
our own way, and travel wherever we wish without 
the arm of dictators stretching out a forbidding hand. 
In spite of difficulties and dangers, Canadians 
should and can face the future with hope and cour- 
age, and also with confidence that freedom, justice 
and right will prevail. Therefore, let us cherish 
and preserve our liberties, guard them most care- 
fully and see to it that we do our best. By so 
doing, we shall individually have done our part and, 
as a result, we cannot help but find some happiness 
and contentment of mind in the days to come. 

Within the past number of years, it has been 
my endeavour to visit Lodges in many of the smaller 
communities. A visit of a Grand Lodge Officer, 
and particularly the Grand Master, is greatly ap- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 43 

predated by these sterling Masons, these pillars 
of the Craft who know and practise Freemasonry. 
It is not possible for many of them to attend Grand 
Lodge and a visit by a Grand Lodge Officer is a 
memorable occasion. Many times have I stressed 
the great importance of visiting these smaller 
Lodges and the sparsely settled sections of the 
Province. 

It is humanly impossible to reach every mem- 
ber of the organization throughout the Jurisdiction 
and the only means of contact for many is through 
the Bulletin or the Grand Lodge Proceedings. The 
Bulletin should be received by every member and 
a copy of the Grand Lodge Proceedings is forward- 
ed to each of the Secretaries of the 580 Lodges in 
the Jurisdiction. In the Proceedings a wealth of 
information is contained. The Grand Secretary, 
the Grand Treasurer, the various Chairmen of Com- 
mittees expend a great deal of effort and give 
generously of their time in making their annual 
reports. Many long hours have been spent by 
your Grand Master in compiling this report of his 
stewardship. 

Because the Proceedings contain such a vast 
amount of information, it does seem unfortunate 
that some Secretaries (and I am glad to say, not 
all) feel that it is for their information only and 
very often merely file it away in their desk. I 
would suggest that an announcement be made in 
each lodge that a copy of the Proceedings is on hand 
and that it is available to all members who may 
wish to peruse its contents. Where time permits, 
interesting parts of the Proceedings can well be 
read at lodge meetings; in fact, I know that this 
procedure is followed by many lodges and is greatly 
appreciated by the members. 

IN MEMORIAM 

And now for a moment, and if only for a mo- 
ment, we pause in our deliberations to think of 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

those who were with us a year ago and have since 
passed to the Grand Lodge Above. At times I 
find it difficult to realize that some of those who 
were very close and dear have passed into the un- 
known. It is with much regret that I find it 
impossible to mention more than a few, realizing 
to the full that others are deserving of more than 
a mere reference. During the year we have all 
felt deep personal loss and in this we have a common 
bond of sympathy, not only among ourselves but 
with those families that have been bereaved. We 
are grateful that they passed our way; we are 
grateful for their friendships loaned us for a little 
while in this great span of time; grateful for their 
memory which we shall ever hold most dear. As 
I write this memorial a host of recollections flash 
across my mind and I find it most difficult to 
restrain myself to mention only the following; 

Most Worshipful The Grand Master, His Grace, 
The Duke of Devonshire, K. G. 

It was with profound sorrow that we learned 
of the sudden death of the Most Worshipful, The 
Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of English 
Freemasons, His Grace, The Duke of Devonshire, 
K. G., at his Eastbourne County Seat, Compton 
Place. To hear the unexpected announcement was 
a sharp shock, for it was just over three years ago, 
in 1947, that he was elected to his high office amid 
the unanimous approval of Grand Lodge acknow- 
ledging him to be most qualified to sustain and 
maintain the honour of Freemasonry. He had 
amply proved himself in his occupancy of his office 
a worthy successor to The Right Honourable, The 
Earl of Harewood, K. G. Our deepest sympathies 
go out to the brethren in England on the great 
loss they have sustained. 

k Right Worshipful Brother 

George Frederick Kingston. 

Once again, a great son of Mother Church has 
gone to his rest, and she remains to carry on her 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 45 

mission, both the richer for his life and the poorer 
for his death. George Frederick Kingston was the 
third native-born Canadian to rise to the highest 
office within the gift of the Church of England in 
Canada. A great scholar, a fine Christian gentle- 
man and a natural leader among men, he has, in 
his years as Bishop and as Primate, made an in- 
delible imprint on the pages of the church's story 
in all parts of our Dominion. 

He was born at Prescott, Ontario, in 1889 and, 
since his earlier years, has never lost his love for 
and interest in his "home town". There, his 
education began in its public, high and model schools, 
and his feet were firmly set upon the ladder of 
learning which was to carry him to high positions 
in the councils of the church. In 1913 he received 
the degree of B. A. from the University of Trinity 
College, Toronto, and, a year later, the degree of 
M. A. In 1916 he was awarded the degree of 
B. D. by the University of King's College, Windsor, 
and in 1923 the degree of Ph. D. was added to his 
growing list of laurels by the University of Toronto. 
Two honorary degrees of D. D. (Jure Dignitatis) 
completed the list, being conferred upon him by 
the University of Trinity College, Toronto, and the 
University of King's College, Halifax, in 1940. 

The death of the Anglican Primate of Canada 
on November 20th, 1950, was, indeed, a shock to 
the people of Canada. It occurred only a few short 
days after he delivered the sermon at our Annual 
Church Service which was held in St. Paul's Anglican 
Church, Bloor Street East, Toronto. He was a man 
of unlimited ability, modest, gentle and understand- 
ing, whose kindly philosophical outlook endeared 
him to all. He was initiated in Ionic Lodge No. 
25, Toronto, on February 2nd, 1927; was Worship- 
ful Master in 1937 and was appointed to the Board 
of General Purposes in 1941 to 1944. He was 
Chairman of the Committee on the Grand Lodge 
Library when Bishop of Algoma and, on his election 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

to the Bishopric of Nova Scotia, it became necessary 
for him to relinquish his office. 

A most impressive service was held in St. James 
Cathedral which was filled to overflowing-. Rep- 
resentatives of state, of church, of Freemasonry, 
of every walk in life gathered to pay homage to 
this great man. The hearts of thousands who 
have known him personally are full of sorrow and 
the sympathy of the whole church goes out to his 
wife and family. 

Right Worshipful Brother 
Robert William Watchorn 

We wish to pay tribute to the memory of Right 
Worshipful Brother Robert William Watchorn of 
Merrickville Lodge, No. 55, Merrickville. Few of us 
will be able to equal his memorable record. He was 
believed to be the oldest living Mason in Canada and 
was reputed to be the seventh oldest living Mason in 
the world. He always took an active interest in 
the affairs of his municipality and held an outstand- 
ing record of service to the community and the 
church. He was initiated in Evergreen Lodge No. 
209, Lanark in 1873 and affiliated with Merrickville 
Lodge, No. 55, in 1874 ; in 1884 was elected Worship- 
ful Master and served as District Deputy Grand 
Master in 1899. He was a man of fine principles 
which he lived to exemplify until the honourable 
age of ninety-eight years, four months and four 
days, when he passed on to the Grand Lodge Above 
on December 19th, 1950. The high regard in which 
he was hold was more than demonstrated by the 
large number who gathered from all parts of the 
district to pay their last tribute to his merit and 
his public service. 

Right Worshipful Brother J. Howard Blowes. 

Just a few short days after he was installed 
as District Deputy Grand Master of Bruce District, 
we were greatly grieved to hear of the sudden and 
tragic passing of Right Worshipful Brother J. 
Howard Blowes. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 47 

He was initiated in Port Elgin Lodge, No. 429, 
in 1925 and was Worshipful Master in 1938. He 
was Secretary of his Lodge for a number of years 
and passed to the Grand Lodge Above on July 31st, 
1950. Always a lover of music, he served in the 
choir of his church for some twenty-five years, and 
his interests were his home, his church and his 
lodge. 

We extend our sincerest sympathies to his 
family who, in his passing, lost a good husband 
and a good father, while we lost a good man and a 
good Mason. I requested Worshipful Brother 
Samuel Vog-an of Saugeen Lodge, No. 197, to take 
over the duties of District Deputy Grand Master, 
and was very pleased when he graciously consented 
to do so. Accordingly, I made the appointment in 
the regular way. 

Right Worshipful Brother George L. Gardiner. 

We were all saddened to learn of the death of 
Right Worshipful Brother George L. Gardiner in 
December, 1950. He was initiated in Beaches 
Lodge, No. 473, and became Worshipful Master in 
1915. Greatly interested in Freemasonry, he assist- 
ed in the formation of St. Aidan's Lodge, No. 567, 
and Victory Lodg-e, No. 547, Toronto. He served 
as District Deputy Grand Master of District "B" 
Toronto in 1926. He was exalted into Royal Arch 
Masonry in Beaches Chapter, No. 163; was elected 
First Principal in 1914, and Most Excellent Grand 
First Principal of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch 
Masonry of Canada in 1935-36. He gave much of 
himself in his conscientious performance of his 
daily duties as well as in our Masonry which he 
loved so well. We will all miss his genial person- 
ality and again we extend our most sincere sympathy 
to his loved ones. 

Right Worshipful Brother W. Lome Hartsell. 

It was a great shock to receive the message 
of the passing of Right Worshipful Brother W. 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Lome Hartsell, District Deputy Grand Master of 
St. Thomas District on April 17th, 1951. Only a 
few nights previously we had been tog-ether for the 
District Reception which was held in Ridgetown, 
Chatham District. Right Worshipful Brother 
Hartsell had been with me on a number of occasions 
and I had grown to greatly admire him for his 
sterling qualities. He was initiated in St. Thomas 
Lodge, No. 44 on 5th April, 1928, and the members 
of that District have suffered a severe loss in his 
passing. We extend our sincere sympathy to his 
family. I requested Right Worshipful Brother 
R. Bandeen, Past District Deputy Grand Master of 
St. Thomas District, to take over the duties of 
District Deputy Grand Master and was greatly 
pleased when he kindly consented to do so. 

Most Worshipful Brother O. Frank Hart. 
Right Worshipful Brother Matthew Gait, Junior. 

Two of our good friends and dearly beloved 
brethren who have paid us so many visits and en- 
deared themselves to us all will be greatly missed. 
Since we met here last, Most Worshipful Brother 
0. Frank Hart, Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge 
of South Carolina, and Right Worshipful Brother 
Matthew Gait, Junior, Grand Secretary of the Grand 
Lodge of Pennsylvania, have passed on to reap the 
reward for their faithful services. They served 
well their Masonry; they served their community; 
they served their country; and they served God. 
We extend our sincere sympathy to their families 
as well as to the Grand Lodges whose destines they 
guided for so many years. 

Very Worshipful Brother Raymond V. Harper. 

On August 23rd, 1950, I suffered a personal 
loss in the death of my good friend, Very Worship- 
ful Brother Raymond V. Harper. For over a 
quarter of a century we were closely associated and 
in 1934, when I was elected District Deputy Grand 
Master, I was greatly pleased that he consented to 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 49 

act as District Secretary. As well as being a most 
devoted friend, he was forever endeavouring to 
relieve me in every way possible. His sympathetic 
understanding was a great assistance as we travelled 
many a long mile together. His company was 
always a joy and an inspiration to me. He is 
greatly missed by his Lodge and his many friends. 
His thoughtfulness in his many kind deeds to others 
will never be forgotten. His life depicted the words 
of an unknown Australian poet. 

"Two things stand like stone: 
Kindness in another's trouble, 
Courage in your own." 

Our minds are not clear as to the path our 
departed brothers may have trod, nor the stairs 
they may have climbed, but softly we say to them. 
"Goodnight, may you have eternal joy in the beauti- 
ful realm of perpetual peace." 

MANITOBA FLOOD RELIEF 

I am pleased to report a magnificent response 
to my suggestion regarding the Manitoba Flood 
Relief. On May 30th of last year, I addressed a 
letter to all Lodges in the Jurisdiction requesting 
their assistance for the relief of those who, through 
no fault of their own, encountered such a disaster. 
As I reported last year, we immediately forwarded 
$5,000.00 from our Grand Lodge funds and, through 
your generosity, I was very proud to present on your 
behalf to the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of 
Manitoba, at our last Annual Communication, a 
cheque in the amount of $10,000.00. I am also 
pleased to report to you that we forwarded a cheque 
in the amount of $2,000.00 to one of our own mem- 
bers from Algoma District who was farming in the 
southern part of Manitoba and was left completely 
destitute by the flood. We also contributed $500.00 
to one of our members from St. Thomas District 
whose home was badly damaged by the rising 
waters in the city of Winnipeg. As you all know 
the fund was closed on March 31st of this year and 



BO GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the balance amounting- to $5,222.90 was forwarded 
to the Grand Lodge of Manitoba. 

The contributions from the brethren of this 
Grand Jurisdiction amounted to $17,722.90, which, 
along with $5,000.00 from Grand Lodg-e funds, 
made a gross amount of $22,722.90 forwarded to 
our distressed brethren in Manitoba. 

This is another splendid example of your co- 
operation and support and, as I have said on many 
occasions, the encouragement is such that the re- 
sponsibility of a Grand Master is considerably light- 
ened. Therefore, from the depths of a grateful 
heart and on behalf of those who have been helped 
by your generosity, I say, "Thank you, thank you 
very much." 

DONATIONS 

During the year the following donations have 
been authorized by me and I ask for your approval : 

Boy Scouts' Association, Ontario Branch... $ 500.00 
Canadian Red Cross, Ontario Division 2,000.00 

ANNIVERSARIES 

In the report of the Committee on the Grand 
Master's Address of July, 1950, M.W. Bro. W. J. 
Dunlop, Chairman of that Committee, stated that 
it was hoped I would not have as many anniver- 
saries this year. It is rather a coincidence that 
the previous years I was privileged to attend anni- 
versaries of from 25 to 150 years, while the past 
year has brought only 25th, 35th, 75th and 90th 
anniversaries. Needless to say, it is necessary and 
desirable that these Lodges should celebrate their 
25th and 35th anniversaries and in the same course 
of time each of them will be celebrating its 50th, 
75th and 100th anniversary with the same en- 
thusiasm and with the same painstaking- care, giving 
thought to every detail in order to make the occasion 
memorable in every respect. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 51 

On October 19th, 1950, accompanied by a large 
number of past and present Grand Lodge officers, 
including the District Deputy Grand Master, R.W. 
Bro. Harold W. Taylor and the Grand Chaplain, R.W. 
Bro. Reverend G. S. Scovell, I attended the 35th 
Anniversary of High Park Lodge, No. 531, Toronto. 
The walls of the College Street Temple fairly bulged 
to accomodate the brethren from many sections of 
the Jurisdiction and all who were privileged to be 
present must have received inspiration from the en- 
thusiasm with which the committee in charge of the 
anniversary made of it such an outstanding success. 

Delta Lodge, No. 634, Toronto, celebrated its 
25th Anniversary on December 12th, 1950. On 
this occasion I was honoured bv the presence of 
M. W. Bro. C. S. Hamilton, R.W. Bro. M. A. Searle, 
District Deputy Grand Master, Toronto District "D", 
and the Grand Director of Ceremonies, V.W. Bro. R. 
H. Saunders. A large number of the members of 
this Lodge are on the Hydro staff and came from 
far and wide to be present for this Anniversary. It 
was a grand Masonic meeting and one that will be 
long remembered by all who were present. 

Immediately after the Annual Communication 
in July, 1949, when I was elevated to the office of 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. John Ness approached me 
with the good advice that I was to guard well my 
health and refrain from attending too many meet- 
ings. In the same breath he endeavoured to make 
an appointment to ensure that I would attend the 
25th Anniversary of Caledonia Lodge, No. 637, on 
December l&th, 1950. As is characteristic of his 
great and persistent Scottish race, he never faltered 
in his insistence with the result that, accompanied 
bv the District Deputv Grand Master of District 
"B", R.W. Bro. William K. Bailey, and R.W. Bro. 
M. A. Searle, District Deputy Grand Master of Tor- 
onto District "D", and a host of other past and 
present Grand Lodge officers, I was ushered into the 
Lodge Room to the "skirl" of the bagpipes. My 
prayer might be, that when the Grand Master 



62 GRAND LODCJE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

attends the 50th or the 100th Anniversary of this 
same Lodge he be forewarned to procure a pair of 
earmuffs, for, when sitting six feet in front of the 
bagpipes, the roar of the kettle drums and the boom 
of the mighty drum, one is fairly deafened for days 
to come. Yes, this was indeed a great meeting 
with some four or five hundred members in attend- 
ance and it was truly an outstanding Masonic event. 

Georgian Lodge, No. 348, Penetanguishene, had 
the happy occasion of celebrating its 75th Anni- 
versary on Friday, May 4th, 1951. Accompanied 
by the District Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. 
M. D. Morrison, V.W. Bro. R. H. Saunders and many 
other present and past Grand Lodge officers, a 
most interesting and enthusiastic anniversary cele- 
bration was enjoyed. The brethren in this grand, 
little lodge endeavoured to make this an outstand- 
ing event which was amply demonstrated by the 
large number in attendance. 

The 90th Anniversary of Lebanon Lodge, No. 
139, Oshawa, was celebrated on Thursday, May 10th, 
1951. This was also a truly representative gather- 
ing of the members of the district and I was more 
than pleased to have with me, the District Deputy 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. W. G. Bunker and V.W. 
Bro. B. S. Edmondson. This was an exceptionally 
good Masonic meeting and it gave me great pleasure 
to be able to be present and contribute to the success 
of the evening. It brought back pleasant mem- 
ories of the occasions when I made the dedicatory 
address at the time their beautiful Wurlitzer organ 
was presented by the sons of Wor. Bro. George 
McLaughlin to his memory. 

The population of the city of Stratford was 
greatly increased on Saturday, May 19th, 1951, 
when a large delegation of members from Detroit 
Lodge, Detroit, Michigan, arrived to help celebrate 
the 90th Anniversary of Tecumseh Lodge, No. 144. 
I was happy to greet M.W. Bro. Frank A. Copus 
who journeyed from Owen Sound to be in attendance 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 53 

at this momentous occasion of his Mother Lodge. 
This was really a gala event, graced by the presence 
of the ladies who composed about half of the four 
hundred who sat down to the festive table. Al- 
though I was made an Indian for one night, the 
city of Stratford prides itself on being a Shakes- 
pearian city and carried the celebration off in a 
truly Shakespearian manner. 

ONE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARIES 

In some countries, such as England and others 
that could be mentioned, a lodge that has camed on 
for a century is somewhat of an infant, while in 
a country as young as this Canada of ours (merely 
an infant itself in the history of the world) the 
completion of one hundred years is a golden mile- 
stone. Accordingly, when any of our lodges reach 
that golden milestone of their history, it is an occa- 
sion of rare importance. 

The claim of St. George's Lodge, No. 41, Kings- 
ville, to one hundred years of active existence was 
investigated by R.W. Bro. Nelson C. Hart, Deputy 
Grand Master, at my request and, on his recommend- 
ation, I have authorized the members of this lodge 
to wear gold-trimmed regalia, effective as of March 
9th, 1952. This lodge came into existence by a 
dispensation issued on March 9th, 1852, by the 
United Grand Lodge of England. The Lodge has 
had continuous activity ever since. 

The claim of St. John's Lodge, No. 40, Hamilton, 
to one hundred years of active existence was in- 
vestigated by M.W. Bro. T. H. Simpson, R.W. Bro. 
G. F. Clark and R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon at my request 
and, on their recommendation, I have authorized 
the members of this Lodge to wear gold-trimmed 
regalia effective as of December 27th, 1952. While 
the dispensation came from the Grand Lodge of 
Ireland dated July 2nd, 1852, the first meeting of 
the lodge was held December 27th, 1852 and the 
Lodge has been in active, continuous operation ever 
since. 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The claim of Composite Lodge, No. 30, Whitby, 
to one hundred years of active existence was in- 
vestigated by R.W. Bro. J. R. Rumball, R.W. Bro. 
J. A. Hearn and R.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn at my 
request and, on their recommendation, I have au- 
thorized the members of this Lodge to wear gold- 
trimmed regalia as of June 4th, 1952. 

I am pleased to report that Worshipful Brother 
J. J. Talman and Right Worshipful Brother W. D. 
Love have kindly consented to investigate the claim 
of King Solomon's Lodge, No. 43, Woodstock, to 
one hundred years of continuous Masonic service. 

VISITATIONS 

As the year is rapidly drawing to a close, it is 
with mixed feelings of pleasure and regret that I 
review in retrospect the many friendly and enthu- 
siastic district and anniversary meetings it has 
been my pleasure to attend, receiving always the 
utmost kindliness and a large measure of encourage- 
ment. When one would look over those eager 
audiences and realize the great distances that many 
had travelled in order to be present, one would be 
less than human if there were not a tugging at 
the heart strings. When the shadows lengthen in 
the days that lie ahead, the memory of these friend- 
ships and happy occasions will always be a source 
of comfort and great happiness. These friendships 
made across Canada, yes, across this great America 
of ours have been such as one is seldom privileged 
to enjoy. I am deeply grateful for the cordial 
welcome, the hospitality and the generous kindness 
so graciously bestowed. I could use a thousand 
words and yet fail adequately to express my heart- 
felt thanks. 

You can readily understand that it is quite 
impossible for the Grand Master to attend all the 
Annual Communications of the many Grand Lodges 
with whom we have the most cordial and fraternal 
relations. I do regret that time and human frailty 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 55 

would not permit me to accept many of the cordial 
invitations extended. I, therefore, acknowledge 
and appreciate the efforts of those who took time 
out of their busy lives to represent me at various 
Masonic gatherings and other Grand Lodge Com- 
munications, and I thank them most sincerely. 

I feel I was most ably represented by M.W. Bro. 
C. S. Hamilton who attended the Seventy-fifth An- 
nual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Mani- 
toba, by R.W. Bro. J. A. Hearn who attended the 
Grand Lodges of Ohio and New York, by the Deputy 
Grand Master who attended the Grand Lodge of 
Michigan, by R.W. Bro. G. F. Clark who attended the 
Grand Lodge of Quebec, by M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop 
and R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon who attended the Grand 
Lodge of Pennsylvania, and by M. W. Bro. Frank 
A. Copus who attended the Grand Lodge of Nova 
Scotia and was guest speaker of the occasion. 

In view of our One Hundredth Anniversary, 
which we shall celebrate in 1955, I was greatly 
pleased when I prevailed on our Grand Secretary, 
R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, to attend the Centennial of 
the Grand Lodge of California, which was held in 
San Francisco on October 8th to 14th, 1950. His 
report is such that I feel sure that it will serve a 
good purpose in making the arrangements for our 
Centennial. 

At my request M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop journey- 
ed to the Old Country this spring and I am now 
more than pleased to have him back with us. In 
his usual gracious manner he carried out his in- 
structions with fidelity and extended personal and 
most cordial invitations to the United Grand Lodge 
of England, the Grand Lodge of Scotland and the 
Grand Lodge of Ireland to grace our Centennial 
Anniversary with the presence of several repre- 
sentatives from each of those venerable Grand 
Lodges. I do believe that this will meet with your 
approval. 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I have always looked forward to a trip to the 
Western District and so September 9th, 1950, found 
R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon and the late V.W. Bro. W. S. 
Gibson and myself setting out on the anticipated 
trip. Our first stop was Kenora where we were 
met by the District Deputy Grand Master, R.W. 
Bro. Nelson S. Marsh, and a large number of the 
brethren. Some of these brethren demonstrated 
their appreciation of the Grand Master by travelling 
from as far away as Chukuni Lodge, No. 660, Red 
Lake — some two hundred miles distant, and I under- 
stand that every lodge in this far-flung area was 
represented at this meeting. It was also a great 
pleasure to welcome the Grand Master of the Grand 
Lodge of Manitoba, M.W. Bro. C. E. Cole, accom- 
panied by his Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. F 
H. Blythe. May I extend to the members of the 
northern part of this district my congratulations 
and sincere thanks for an outstanding Masonic 
function. 

The following day R. W. Bro. Marsh, accom- 
panied by the District Secretary, motored us to 
Fort Frances — a distance of some one hundred and 
fifty miles. This was a most pleasant and interest- 
ing drive and I complimented "them on the excep- 
tionally good roads with which they are provided. 
Time and space will not permit mention of the many 
pleasant details, such as a lovely luncheon at a 
beautiful northern camp where our Grand Secretary, 
purchased two bottles of maple syrup which he 
carried all the way back to Hamilton, (Hamilton 
merchants take notice). That evening we had a 
fine meeting and I wish here to record my appre- 
ciation for the cordial welcome we received in this 
Western District. The brethren are sincere and 
enthusiastic and I do hope, in fact, I recommend 
that the Grand Masters of the future make a point 
of visiting this District as the distance is so great 
from the place of meeting of our Grand Lodge that 
it is rather difficult for the Masons of that section 
to communicate freely with lodges from other parts 
of the Jurisdiction. Therefore, a visit from the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 57 

Grand Master means a great deal and is all the 
more appreciated. Indeed I have said on more than 
one occasion that a visit by the Grand Master to this 
part of the Province is more necessary than are 
visits to many of the southern and more populous 
districts. 

Our next stop was Fort William and you can 
understand how pleased we all were to catch a train 
at three-fifty in the morning, especially in a down- 
pour of rain! However, we had a day's rest in 
Fort William before the meeting in Port Arthur 
the next evening of the combined lodges of Port 
Arthur and Fort William. I wish to convey my 
thanks to the District Deputy Grand Master, R.W. 
Bro. David R. C. Lanktree, and his committee for a 
well arranged and enthusiastic occasion. I am 
sure the brilliant red Hudson Bay coat presented 
to the Grand Secretary, will provide ample protec- 
tion when he makes his annual hunting trip to the 
northern woodlands. The next day R.W. Bro. 
R. B. Pow motored us to Terrace Bay where we 
constituted and consecrated Terrace Bay Lodge, 
No. 662. I shall make a further report of this 
under the heading of "New Lodges". 

An invitation was extended to me by Prince 
Edward Lodge, No. 18, in the town of Picton where 
I spent my boyhood days. Accompanied by the 
District Deputv Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Arnold 
V. Gaebel, V.W. Bro. W. A. Goodfellow and V.W. 
Bro. R. H. Saunders, I returned to my home town 
on the evening of September 29th, 1950. This was 
truly a gala occasion. Members from every lodge 
in the surrounding country were there. The late 
R.W. Bro. J. C. Cooper and his committee left noth- 
ing to chance in order that this would be a grand 
meeting. Every minute detail was well planned 
and well executed and I shall always cherish fond 
memories of the evening spent as a guest of the 
brethren of Prince Edward District. The banquet 
held in the Parish House of the Anglican Church 
brought nostalgic memories of the olden days when 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I attended Sunday School in that very room. I was 
indeed happy to have in attendance my own brother 
who still resides in Picton. As I write this and look 
fondly at the oil painting of the beautiful Anglican 
Stone Church of St. Mary Magdalene, so ably re- 
produced by Mr. C. Bone, it brings again to my 
mind, every time I enter the living room of my 
home, the though tfulness and generosity of the 
brethren of Prince Edward Lodge. 

No one could have received a warmer welcome 
than did I on the occasion of my visit to the Grand 
Lodge of Illinois which was held in Chicago on 
October 10th, 1950, and again when I visited the 
Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, which was held in 
Boston on December 27th, 1950. It is my sincere 
hope that we can reciprocate the same kindness 
to our guests assembled here today that I as Grand 
Master and our representatives have enjoyed while 
in your midst. 

Since 1922, my name has been numbered among 
the members of York Chapter, No. 62, Royal Arch 
Masonry. There is nothing out of the ordinary 
about this fact for, as you all know, I have been 
a member of the Masonic Order since 1912. How- 
ever, what seemed to me to be most extraordinary 
and most amazing was the information that they 
wished to confer on me the honour of making me 
an Honorary Past First Principal. The evening of 
November 10th, 1950, was selected. Imagine my sur- 
prise when, arriving at the York Masonic Temple, 
I found there Most Excellent Companion C. M. 
Pitts (our own R.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, Chairman of 
the Committee on the Condition of Masonry) ! It 
was also a surprise to find among those present 
Most Excellent Companion R. B. Dargavel, R. Excell- 
ent Companion F. A. Copus, all the way from Owen 
Sound, and a host of present and past Grand Chapter 
officers from far and near. Characteristic of his 
seemingly unlimited energy and his boundless en- 
thusiasm for Masonry in general, Most Excellent 
Companion C. M. Pitts conducted the meeting in his 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1951 59 

usual gracious manner. I wish to extend my most 
sincere thanks to him and to my Mother Chapter, 
York, No. 62, for the honour bestowed. November 
10th, 1950, will always remain one of the highlights 
among my golden memories. 

January 19th, 1951, was indeed a marvellous 
night for Penewobikong Lodge, No. 487, Blind 
River. The District Deputy Grand Master, R.W. 
Bro. James R. Home, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, and 
R.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, Bishop of Algoma, were 
present. Bus loads came from Sudbury, Sault Ste. 
Marie and Chapleau, and brethren from practically 
every lodge in Nipissing West District gathered to 
do honour to this grand, noble and courageous little 
lodge of which we may all be proud. Upwards of 
two hundred were in attendance; what a contrast 
from conditions of a very few years ago. I have 
never attended a more enthusiastic and spontaneous 
gathering of Masons in all my years of Masonry. 
You will recall the conditions prevailing about seven 
years ago, when the members of this Lodge were 
so discouraged and disheartened. I do not feel 
that it is necessary for me to refresh your memory 
but you, who made it possible for the continuation 
of Penewobikong Lodge, would have been very proud 
of your efforts could you have been in attendance 
that evening. Due to your efforts this lodge is 
today a successful and prosperous Masonic Lodge. 
Congratulations and best wishes, Penewobikong 
Lodge! You have more than justified our con- 
fidence. 

On February 20th-22nd, 1951, the Grand 
Masters' and Grand Secretaries' Conferences were 
held in the city of Washington. I greatly apprec- 
iated the friendships I made and the helpful in- 
formation I received when I attended these Con- 
ferences in February, 1950, but, owing to other 
engagements, it was impossible for me to attend 
this year and I, therefore, requested M.W. Bro. 
W. J. Dunlop and R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon to represent 
our Grand Lodge. 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The Second Conference of Canadian Grand 
Lodges was held in Winnipeg on February 26 to 
28, 1951. I only wish that all our Past Grand 
Masters could have accompanied me to this very 
instructive and inspiring get-together of all the 
leaders in Masonry from the Atlantic to the Pacific. 
I especially regret that M.W. Bro. C. S. Hamilton, 
who called the first conference together six years 
ago at Montebello, Quebec, could not be present 
owing to important business engagements which 
required his presence in Toronto. 

My travelling companions on this trip were 
R.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, Deputy Grand Master, and 
our own Grand Secretary, who has also been the 
Secretary of this Conference since its inception. 

The discussions were most informative and the 
delegates were most enthusiastic. It is my fervent 
hope that this Conference will be continued through- 
out the years. There is no doubt in my mind that 
these gatherings serve a good purpose, not only in 
cementing Masonic relations, but also in bringing 
together the Grand Masters of all the Provinces. 
This will inevitably tend to produce closer ties 
through understanding and personal contacts as do 
such occasions when Freemasons come together to 
talk over their Masonic problems. I might just 
mention that it has been stated to me, quite sincerely 
by many of those in attendance, that the help and 
inspiration they receive from these conferences are 
inestimable. 

Royal Arch Masonry held its Annual Convoca- 
tion of the Grand Chapter at the King Edward 
Hotel, Toronto, in April, 1951. Accompanied by 
our Grand Secretary, I was pleased to attend this 
colorful meeting. Again R.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, 
who was then the Most Excellent Grand First 
Principal of Royal Arch Masonry, was, as usual 
an able, eloquent and most genial host. This was 
a most interesting and well conducted meeting and 
their Annual Banquet, which filled the Crystal 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 61 

Ballroom to capacity, was an outstanding success. 
Our own V.W. Bro. A. G. N. Bradshaw was highly 
honored in being elected to the high office of Most 
Excellent Grand First Principal, and we extend to 
him our best wishes for happiness and success in 
the carrying out of his new responsibilities. 

The week of May 27th, 1951, was a busy one. 
Accompanied by the Grand Secretary, I travelled 
to the northern part of the Jurisdiction to attend 
a large and enthusiastic meeting held at Kirkland 
Lake on the Monday night. Tuesday, we went 
on to Kapuskasing where I had the pleasure of 
addressing another largely attended meeting. I 
was pleased to notice an excellent representation 
from Cochrane and the surrounding district. On 
Thursday night the meeting in Timmins was re- 
corded to have been the largest Masonic gathering 
ever* to have assembled in that community and it 
speaks well of Masonry in this northern part of the 
Province where our members travel many, many 
miles to be in attendance. I would like all who 
read this report to know that R.W. Bro. George D. 
Adams, the District Deputy Grand Master of Tem- 
iskaming District, joined us at Kirkland Lake and 
attended the three meetings in his District. The 
arrangements made by him for these meetings 
showed thoughtful planning and I congratulate and 
thank him for the splendid results of his efforts. 
It was unfortunate that, due to illness, the District 
Deputy Grand Master of Nipissing East District, 
R.W. Bro. William G. Nixon, could not attend the 
grand meeting held in Haileybury on Friday night. 
Members were present from all parts of this District, 
again exemplifying the enthusiasm of Masonry in 
the north. All of these northern Lodges are truly 
to be congratulated on their very fine lodge rooms. 
When any of you are travelling in the northern 
part of our Province you would be well repaid if 
you visit these places of meeting. We left the 
north country with grateful feelings for a warm 
welcome and with the confidence that Masonry is 
strongly established in the northern section of 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

this Grand Jurisdiction and is ably fulfilling its 
God-given purpose. 

CHURCH SERVICES 

As I travel across the Province I hear of 
Masonic Divine Services being held in various 
Masonic Districts. This is as it should be and I 
commend to the full the District Deputy Grand 
Masters and the District Chaplains, as well as 
many Worshipful Masters, who arrange to have 
a Church Service. I hope and trust that our mem- 
bers support these Services and make sure there is 
a good representation present at each and every one 
of them. Due to an oversight it may be possible 
that some Districts have failed to arrange for re- 
ligious services and I suggest that everywhere pos- 
sible you demonstrate to your community by at- 
tending Divine Service that our Freemasonry is 
a supporter of the church. Or, as our Masonic 
ancestors used to say, "Masonry is the handmaiden 
of the Church." This I cannot emphasize too 
strongly. The world must be shown that Free- 
masons are religious men. 

CONFIRMING RANK 

While the Constitution requires a full year's 
service in office of Worshipful Master to entitle 
any man to past rank, I recommend that the rank 
of Past Master of his Lodge be awarded to: — 

Worshipful Brother J. C. Eichenberg, King 
Hiram Lodge, No. 78, Tillsonburg. 

Due to illness of the Worshipful Master, Broth- 
er Eichenberg was installed as Worshipful Master 
in February, 1949. He served in this capacity for 
the balance of the year and the Lodge petitioned 
that he be granted the rank of Past Master. The 
report states that he filled this office in a faithful, 
most capable manner. 

Worshipful Brother N. C. Smith, Doric Lodge, 
No. 623, Kirkland Lake. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 63 

Due to taking a course at the request of his 
department Worshipful Brother Smith was absent 
for part of the year. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

Section 33A of the Constitution provides for 
the conferring of Honorary Membership in the 
Board upon any member thereof in recognition of 
his services, but limits the total number of Hon- 
orary Members to five. There is one vacancy at 
this time and to fill this vacancy I recommend that 
Honorary Membership be conferred on R.W. Bro. 
R. W. Treleaven who has been a member of the 
Board since 1945 and has served most efficiently 
as Chairman of the Committee on Grievances and 
Appeals for all those years. 

As you all know, we shall celebrate our cen- 
tennial in 1955, and we should endeavour to make 
this a fitting climax for our one hundred years of 
peacefull and prosperous Masonic activity. In 
anticipation of this, it is necessary that we make 
our plans well in advance. I, therefore, recom- 
mend that a committee be appointed by the in- 
coming Grand Master and that this committee be 
authorized to arrange the programme, which should 
include such details as the publication of an up- 
to-date history of our Grand Lodge, invitations to 
other Grand Lodges, plans for a mammoth service 
of witness and thankfulness to precede our regular 
business meetings, and all other necessary arrange- 
ments, so that when the history of this centennial 
is written, it will be looked upon as a glorious success 
and as a landmark in the annals of Freemasonry in 
the Province of Ontario. 

APPOINTMENTS 

On the recommendation of the Grand Master 
of Louisiana, I appointed Worshipful Brother Mehn 
as our representative near that Grand Lodge. 

Several vacancies had occurred in the list of 
Grand Representatives of other Grand Lodges near 



64 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

our Grand Lodge. It was important that new 
appointments should be made and these vacancies 
should be filled. Accordingly, on my recommend- 
ation, the respective Grand Masters of the follow- 
ing Grand Lodges appointed the following of our 
brethren to be their Grand Representatives near 
our Grand Lodge: — 

Minnesota — Right Wor. Bro. W. J. Fuller — 
New Liskeard. 

British Columbia — Right Wor. Bro. R. W. 
Treleaven — Hamilton. 

New Brunswick — Right Wor. Bro. W. H. 
Gibson — Tillsonburg. 

New Zealand — Right Wor. Bro. A. L. Bennett 
—Gait. 

Arizona — Right Wor. Bro. 0. M. Newton — 
Trenton. 

New Mexico — Right Wor. Bro. C. P. Tilley — 
Ottawa. 

Washington — Very Wor. Bro. B. S. Edmondson 
— Oshawa. 

Mexico, York — Right Wor. Bro. W. B. Cannon 
— Caledon East. 

Norway — Right Wor. Bro. R. C. Berkinshaw — 
Toronto. 

Victoria — Very Wor. Bro. M. F. Dyke — Blind 
River. 

Denmark — Right Wor. Bro. W. L. Wright — 
Sault Ste. Marie. 

Western Australia — Very Wor. Bro. W. A. 
Bearance — Kingston. 

Nova Scotia — Right Wor. Bro. James Semple — 
North Bay. 

I am pleased to report that these recommend- 
ations were cordially accepted in every instance. 

It was my pleasure, during the year, to make 
the following appointments. In each case the 
member had given long and faithful service to 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 65 

Masonry and I felt it to be in order and very fitting 
that they be recognized as Grand Stewards. 

Very Worshipful Brother George McBain, 
Caledonia Lodge, No. 637, Toronto. 

Very Worshipful Brother Ernest A. Horswill, 
York Lodge. No. 156, Toronto. 

SIXTY-YEAR PIN 

In my Address a year ago, I recommended that 
the Grand Master be authorized to appoint a com- 
mittee to design a bar or other addition to our 
Veterans' Jubilee Medal (50 years a Mason) and 
also to our Long Service Medal (50 years a Past 
Master) in recognition of sixty years' service. This 
recommendation was adopted and I, therefore, ap- 
pointed a committee composed of R.W. Bro. R. C. 
Berkinshaw, R.W. Bro. George F. Clark and R.W. 
Bro. E. G. Dixon. The Special Committee has 
completed and presented to me their report, the 
full text of which is contained in Appendix "A" to 
my Address. I have accordingly authorized the 
issuing of this pin and also recommend the adopt- 
ion of the report of the Special Committee, 

NEW LODGES AND DEDICATIONS 

The growth of our Freemasonry in Ontario is 

an ever-increasing source of inspiration. Last 
year I reported that there were 574 warranted 
lodges and three under dispensation. The three 
under dispensation were duly constituted and con- 
secrated as follows: 

In another part of this report I mentioned that 
on September 15th, accompanied bv R.W. Bro. R. B. 
Pow, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon and V.W. Bro. W. S. 
Gibson, I attended Terrace Bay Lodge, No. 662. 
During the afternoon I constituted and consecrated 
this Lodge and in the evening dedicated the lodge 
room and assisted in installing the officers. As 
ment and the prospects for a successful Masonic 



66 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

many of you know, this town is a company develop- 
Lodge are most promising 1 . A number of the execu- 
tives of the company are 4f f icers and members. Many 
of the members gave freely of their time and talents 
in the beautification of their lodge room and this 
they have succeeded in doing to no small degree. 
I predict for Terrace Bay Lodge, No. 662, a most 
successful Masonic future. 

I wish to thank M.W. Bro. T. H. Simpson for 
constituting and consecrating Brant Lodge, No. 
663, Burlington, on Thursday, September 21st, 
1950. This is a rapidly-growing section of 
the Province and we look forward to hearing the 
very best reports of this Lodge. I regret that 
it was not possible for me to be there in person but 
the brethren of Brant Lodge may rest assured that 
my thoughts and best wishes for a successful future 
were with them on that evening. 

Owing to the fact that arrangements had pre- 
viously been made for my presence in Prince Edward 
Lodge, No. 18, Picton, on September 29th, 1950, 
M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop graciously consented to 
constitute and consecrate Sunnylea Lodge, No. 664, 
Toronto. He reports a very successful meeting 
and feels assured that this will be another one of 
our many good lodges. Again, I am most sorry 
that it was not possible for me to be with my 
brethren there but my sincere good wishes go to 
them for their future success. 

This year also adds four more Lodges under 
dispensation: 

In the rapidly-growing section of Westboro, 
which now forms part of the city of Ottawa, the 
brethren made a request for the establishment of 
another Lodge. After full investigation, the prayer 
of the petitioners was granted and on October 27th. 
1950, the new Lodge, known as Temple Lodge, U.D. 
was instituted by R.W. Bro. M. J. Haggins, District 
Deputy Grand Master of Ottawa District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1951 67 

Some brethren in the new Temple in Belleville, 
where we received a veritable Baptist baptismal 
reception the day of the laying of the corner stone, 
prayed for a dispensation to form a new Lodge. 
The circumstances were so favourable that without 
hesitation I immediately granted the necessary dis- 
pensation and on January 1st, 1951, the new Lodge, 
known as Temple Lodge, U.D., Belleville, was in- 
stituted by R. W. Bro. A. V. Gaebel, District Deputy 
Grand Master of Prince Edward District. 

The home of Freemasonry in Ontario, in keep- 
ing with the progress of Masonry in all parts of the 
Province, made a request for a dispensation for a 
new Lodge in a rapidly-growing section on Hamilton 
Mountain. After full investigation the prayer of 
the petitioners was granted and on February 21st, 
1951, the new Lodge, known as Composite Lodge, 
U.D., Hamilton, was instituted by R.W. Bro. E.G. 
Gawlev, District Deputv Grand Master, Hamilton 
"B" District. 

When R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon and I were in 
Fort Frances September 12th, 1950, a number of 
brethren from Atikokan (Steep Rock) approached 
us on the matter of forming a Lodge in this com- 
pany mining town. We were very much impressed 
with their earnest enthusiasm and as the prospects 
for this town are very promising, we encouraged 
them to proceed with their plans. In due course 
they submitted the plans for their Temple and 
prayed for a dispensation to form a new Lodge. I 
considered that the prospects for a Lodge at Ati- 
kokan were particularly favourable and I imme- 
diately granted the necessary dispensation. There- 
fore, on July 4th, 1951, the new lodge known as 
Atikokan Lodge, U.D., was instituted by R.W. Bro. 
N. S. Marsh, District Deputy Grand Master of 
Western District. In the years to come, as the 
members of this Lodge glance across the river at 
our brethren in the U.S. celebrating the Fourth of 
July, it, no doubt, will bring back pleasant mem- 
ories of the formation of their Lodge on that date 



63 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and they will be happy that they, too, have some- 
thing- to celebrate. 

During- the past year eight new lodge rooms 
were dedicated for Masonic purposes and I extend 
my sincere thanks to the Deputy Grand Master 
R.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, for officiating at the dedi- 
cations at Inwood, Ilderton, Paris, Mattawa and 
Arden, and to M.W. Bro. T. H. Simpson for dedicat- 
ing the lodge room of Waterdown Lodge, No. 357, 
at Milgrove. I have already reported on the dedi- 
cation of the lodge room at Terrace Bay. There 
is a solemnity about ceremonies such as these 
which is always of great interest to the members 
and I am given to understand that the meetings 
were well attended. 

Having been forced to vacate the premises 
they had occupied for many years, the brethren 
of Mattawa Lodge, No. 405, Mattawa, are to be 
complimented on their zeal for Masonry in erecting 
a Temple of their own. As this is a small Lodge 
in a small community it was quite a difficult situa- 
tion to surmount. I heartily congratulate the breth- 
ren of Mattawa Lodge and also thank the Deputy 
Grand Master, who journeyed to Mattawa to dedi- 
cate the Temple, on Friday, October 20th, 1950. 

I deeply regret I was out of the jurisdiction 
and, therefore, it was not possible for me to take 
charge of the dedication ceremony of the new Tem- 
ple at Belleville. As many of you know, this is a 
district in which I spent many of my boyhood days, 
and it would have given me a great deal of pleasure 
to be with the brethren of Prince Edward District 
on this occasion. However, I know that the cere- 
mony was well and truly performed and I wish to 
thank M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, who dedicated the 
new Temple on Wednsday, March 20th, 1951. 

May 11th, 1951, marked the date of a most 
unusual and unique ceremony, when the Deputy 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, and our Grand 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 69 

Secretary, laid the corner-stone and dedicated the 
lodge room at Arden, for St. Andrew's Lodge, No. 
497. To many it might seem strange that the 
laying of the corner-stone and the dedicating of the 
lodge room could take place at the same time. 
However, in this case, the stone was well and truly 
laid, having been kept separate until this time with 
the Temple being completed with the exception of 
the corner-stone. I understand that there were 
some four hundred present from all parts of this 
grand old district, which would be a great source 
of courage and inspiration to our members in this 
little community. 

It was a great pleasure for me, accompanied 
by R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, to dedicate the new 
Temple of Victoria Lodge, No. 470, Victoria Har- 
bour, on Monday, May 14th, 1951. The brethren 
of this Lodge are to be commended for their efforts 
in building a fine meeting place and it was a great 
pleasure for me to renew many old friendships in 
that section of the Jurisdiction. Again I do con- 
gratulate the brethren of Victoria Lodge and I can 
foresee many pleasant and successful meetings in 
their new lodge room. 

LODGE PREMISES AND RENTALS 

My recommendation of last year regarding 
lodge premises and rentals was adopted and I ap- 
pointed a committee composed of R.W. Bro. Nelson 
C. Hart, Deputy Grand Master, Chairman, M.W. 
Bro. R. B. Dargavel, M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, R.W. 
Bro. E. G. Dixon and V.W. Bro. B. S. Edmondson. 
I understand they have completed their assignment 
and will present their report for your consideration 
at this Grand Lodge meeting. 

LODGE ROOMS 

One of the encouraging signs of the prosperity 
in the Craft is the purchase of permanent quarters 
by so many Lodges in recent years. New lodge 
rooms have been built ; others have been enlarged 



70 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and redecorated and in some centres entirely new 
Temples have been erected, providing' other accom- 
modation and space than that required for Craft 
purposes. 

And now I come to a matter which disturbs me 
considerably — the condition of a few — not many — I 
am glad to say — of our lodge rooms. How much 
happier the brethren are, how much better work 
they can do, when they meet in clean lodge rooms, 
nicely decorated and adequately supplied with wash- 
room, candidate's preparation room and well-kept 
entrance and ante-room. How much more favour- 
ably impressed the candidate will be if he receives 
the first light in Masonry in bright and commodious 
surroundings. Perhaps the members have not 
noticed that redecorating is required ; perhaps they 
have become accustomed to the surroundings in 
which they meet. But when these things are 
brought to their attention I am sure they will wish 
to make improvements. Only well-arranged, well- 
spaced, ample quarters, adequately furnished, can 
inspire the officers and members to work more 
diligently and more contentedly in the interests of 
the Craft. I express only a wish (it may not be 
practicable but it is an earnest wish) that neither 
our lodge rooms nor our banquet rooms be situated 
on the third floors of buildings, old or new. Some- 
times I wonder how many of our older brethren 
are deterred from attendance because of the neces- 
sity of climbing two flights of stairways. I suggest 
that the District Deputy Grand Masters should 
inspect the lodge premises, as well as the lodge 
records and the work of the officers, and should 
make sure that nowhere in their District is there 
to be found any lodge premises which do not meas- 
ure up to what we expect of our Lodges. We all 
have a duty to maintain the dignity and high impor- 
tance of the Fraternity on the highest plane but 
we can so easily become careless about appearances 
without realizing the effect of these upon new and 
old members and upon the profane as well. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1951 71 

FIRE LOSSES 

Just recently two of our Masonic Temples were 
entirely destroyed or badly damaged by fire. Within 
the last two years three other Lodges have ex- 
perienced similar losses. These lamentable dis- 
asters prompt me to sound a note of warning to 
all Lodges and to all Temple Corporations that they 
should review, without delay, the insurance carried 
and make such adjustments as will fully protect 
their members against loss. Replacement values 
have increased tremendously in recent years but 
insurance coverage has not kept pace with these 
values. Now is the time to make certain that 
adequate insurance is carried — not tomorrow. It 
may then be too late. 

So often, when loss by fire is incurred the 
original warrant and many valuable lodge records 
are lost forever. These can never be replaced nor 
can their historical value be estimated. I urge 
all Lodges to protect their warrants and valuable 
records against such loss by depositing them after 
each meeting in some fireproof receptacle or vault. 
The inconvenience of transporting the warrant and 
the minute book from a place of safety to the lodge 
room for each meeting would be a small task, 
willingly undertaken by a junior officer at anytime. 

INVESTIGATING COMMITTEES 

Many of you have repeatedly heard me mention 
that we should screen carefully the aspirants to 
membership in our Masonic Fraternity. Literally 
thousands are applying from year to year and we 
welcome and are glad to receive into our Fraternity 
all good citizens who knock at our doors and wish, 
with proper motives, to join our Order. We should, 
however, make sure that those whom we are accept- 
ing will make good Masons and be a credit to our 
Ancient Craft. I would strongly suggest that 
the Worshipful Master, in appointing investigating 
committees, make sure that the committee appoint- 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ed makes proper investigation of the applicant's 
character. It has been brought to my attention, 
on more than one occasion, that a committee has 
been negligent in carrying out its responsibilities and 
has thereby caused embarrassment to others. Unless 
proper precaution is taken, we might find that we 
had admitted those who would disturb the tran- 
quility of our peaceful lodge room. This is a 
matter of grave importance to our 123,000 mem- 
bers, which number constitutes an all-time high 
in our glorious history. I would ask you to consider 
this seriously as I cannot too strongly emphasize 
its significance and its importance, especially in 
these days of crisis and of strain and stress when 
infiltration of enemies of our country might pos- 
sibly occur in some places. In such times it is 
really dangerous to be too complacent, to be too 
credulous. 

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

As in previous years, the Grand Master's 
Banquet will be held at the Royal York Hotel at 
6.45 o'clock tonight. I am pleased to thank R.W. 
Bro. J. A. Hearn for his acceptance of the Chair- 
manship of this Committee. R.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn has again accepted the responsibility of 
distributing the tickets for this banquet. As in 
previous years the demand has exceeded the capacity 
of the hotel facilities and I hope that those who 
have been disappointed in past years will be able 
to be in attendance. Brother the Reverend Harold 
Young, who needs no introduction to a Masonic 
gathering, will be the guest speaker. Brother 
Young is not only well known throughout our Juris- 
diction but has addressed many Masonic gatherings 
from the Dakotas to the Atlantic. He is one of 
the finest speakers of our time and those who have 
the privilege of attending the Grand Master's Ban- 
quet will agree that this prophet is appreciated in 
our midst. I can assure you that this will be an 
occasion which should not be missed. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 73 

CLOSING 

And now the sands of my glass have nearly 
run out. In a few short hours the gavel, with 
which you entrusted me two years ago, will be 
turned over to my worthy successor. I am con- 
fident, in fact I know that you will give him the 
same kind consideration, support and encourage- 
ment which is so much a part of you all. I extend 
to him my best wishes and my hopes that he will 
be blessed with health and strength to carry out 
the arduous duties required of and expected of the 
Grand Master. 

I wish, at this my last opportunity, to thank 
the Past Grand Masters who are a source of Gibral- 
tic strength to our Grand Lodge. Their guidance 
and assistance to a Grand Master is inestimable 
and I only wish it were possible to repay them in 
kind. To the District Deputy Grand Masters may 
I say, "Congratulations, and thank you for the fine 
manner in which you have upheld the dignity of 
your office. I am grateful for your grand co- 
operation in complying with my every request." 
May I say, "I wish you well," to the 581 Worship- 
ful Masters. Yours is a great opportunity to be 
of service to the Craft, to your community and, 
incidentally, to your countiy. This is an oppor- 
tunity that comes only once and regardless of the 
amount you contribute the returns will be greater 
by far. For your support, I do thank you most 
sincerely. 

To the officers and members who are the 
stalwarts of our Freemasonry I say, "God bless 
you, and thank you for all your kind consideration 
and helpfulness." 

Many may not be aware of the fact that our 
Grand Secretary, Right Worshipful Brother Ewart 
Gladstone Dixon, K.C., M.C., is a most worthy public 
relations man for our Grand Lodge. His genial 
personality and sterling qualities make him a most 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

welcome guest everywhere. We have travelled 
many thousands of miles tog-ether and his broad 
experience has been invaluable. His efficient staff 
has helped me in no small way to perform the duties 
of which they are so necessarily a part. 

Some time ago when I foresaw the probability 
of having to make what seemed to me a paramount 
decision, I was torn betwixt the desire to be able to 
return to the peace and tranquility of my home after 
a strenuous day and the desire of being able to 
fulfill the duties of the high office of Grand Master 
for which you, my colleagues, deemed me capable. 
The honour was indeed a complimentary challenge 
and the decision was made only after great deliber- 
ation. To look ahead, it seemed a tremendous 
task, coupled with the daily responsibilities of my 
vocation. I reach the end of my administration as 
Grand Master with mixed feelings, overwhelming 
gratitude for the courage and appreciation engen- 
dered by your loyal, enthusiastic response and co- 
operation, and gratitude to God for His help and 
guidance in these two years, gratitude above all 
for the fine friendships you have given me, friend- 
ships that I shall cherish as long as I live. Human 
limitations made it impossible to accept all the 
glorious opportunities for service to our beloved 
Craft but, as Abraham Lincoln once said, "I do the 
very best I know how — the very best I can; and I 
mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end 
brings me out all right, what is said against me 
will not amount to anything. If the end brings 
me out wrong, ten angels maintaining I was right 
would make no difference." And finally, if I have 
succeeded in leaving some thought, some inspiration 
with Lodges or individuals as I have journeyed 
amongst you, if I have done some act or said some 
word that will count for good, then I shall feel that 
my efforts have not been in vain. 

JAMES P. MAHER, 

Grand Master.

APPENDIX "A" 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master: 

Most Worshipful Sir: 

Your Special Committee, consisting of R.W. 
Bro. R. C. Berkinshaw, Chairman, R.W. Bro. G. F. 
Clark and R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, appointed by you 
to design a bar or other addition to our Veterans' 
Jubilee Medal (50 years a Mason) and our Long 
Service Medal (50 years a Past Master) in recog- 
nition of sixty years of service in each case, recom- 
mends the adoption and immediate authorization 
of the following: — 

1. That designation, in each case, be in the form of 
a diamond-shaped pin, which is appropriate to 
mark the diamond jubilee of the recipient's 
service — the diamond-shaped pin to be three- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 77 

quarters of an inch in length over its horizontal 
axis and nine-sixteenths of an inch over its 
vertical axis. 

2. The pin is to be made of sterling silver with a 
bevelled border within which border shall be in 
raised figures, the figures "60" and underneath 
in smaller letters "yrs". 

3. Within the border and as a background to "60 
yrs" there shall be inserted sky blue enamel 
of the same color as the medal ribbon. 

4. The pin for use with the Veterans' Jubilee 
Medal shall be gold plated to match the medal. 

5. The pin for use with the Long Service Medal 
shall be in silver finish to match the finish 
used on the medal. 

6. The pin, in each case, is to have a single split 
clasp on the back which can be put through the 
ribbon on the medal and spread to either side 
to secure the pin to the ribbon. 

7. The pin, in each case, shall, on application to 
Grand Lodge, be awarded to a member in good 
standing of a lodge in this Jurisdiction who has 
already received, or who is entitled to receive 
either of the above medals respectively and has 
completed an additional ten years', or a total 
of sixty years', membership in good standing as 
a member or as a Past Master, as the case may 
be, of a Lodge in this Grand Jurisdiction. 

8. If part of the additional ten years' membership 
includes membership in a duly recognized Grand 
Lodge outside this Grand Lodge, the award may 
be made at the Grand Master's discretion 
provided that the additional ten years' mem- 
bership includes not less than five years in the 
Jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

R. C. BERKINSHAW, 
Chairman.

APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

At the conclusion of the Address it was moved 
by M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel, seconded by M.W. 
Bro. F. A. Copus, and carried: That a committee 
composed of all the Past Grand Masters present, 
with M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop as Chairman, consider 
and report to Grand Lodge on the Grand Master's 
Address. The motion was put by the Deputy Grand 
Master. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, Chairman, presented 
the report of this Committee, and on his motion, 
seconded by M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, it was received 
and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

So thoroughly and so comprehensively has our Grand 
Master covered, in his Address, the activities of the past 
year that there is little that needs to be said by this Com- 
mittee; but our practice demands, quite logically, that the 
Grand Master's decisions and recommendations must be 
approved by Grand Lodge before they become effective. 
And the approval of Grand Lodge is expressed by the adop- 
tion of the Report of this Committee. 

First, we congratulate the Grand Master on his descrip- 
tion of world conditions and on his observations regarding 
human nature and its peculiarities. He proves himself to 
be a good, practical psychologist and a thoughtful ob- 
server. He reminds us of the priceless heritage we have 
in Freemasonry and he pays really tender and heartfelt 
tribute to those Freemasons who have gone on ahead. 

Of the Grand Master's vivid descriptions of the many 
Masonic gatherings which he has graced with his presence 
and which he has addressed this Committee can only 
remark that he has done well and has made an excellent 
contribution, a lasting contribution, to the welfare of Free- 
masonry in this Grand Jui-isdiction. And we know quite 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 79 

well that, in his second year as in his first, his adminis- 
tration has been wonderfully effective — kind, generous, and 
just. With his remarks regarding Masonic Church Services 
we fully agree. 

We recommend full approval of the Grand Master's 
action with regard to Manitoba Flood Relief and the dona- 
tions to the Canadian Red Cross (Ontario Division) and 
to the Ontario Branch of the Boy Scouts' Association. We 
recommend, too, that R.W. Bro. Samuel Vogan be confirmed 
in his rank as a Past District Deputy Grand Master and 
that Wor. Bros. J. C. Eichenberg, of Lodge No. 78, and 
N. C. Smith, of Lodge No. 623, be confirmed in the rank 
of Past Masters though they were not able to serve for 
a full twelve-month period. 

Your Committee further recommends that cordial ap- 
proval be Recorded to the Grand Master's proposal that 
R.W. Bro. R. W. Treleaven be appointed an Honorary 
Member of the Board of General Purposes; his appoint- 
ments of Grand Representatives and Grand Stewards are 
fully approved; and we concur in his suggestions regard- 
ing lodge premises. 

The special attention of the Brethren of Grand Lodge 
is invited to the paragraph in the Grand Master's Address 
under the heading "Investigating Committees." In these 
days of world crisis, when there are traitors in many organ- 
izations, the duties of committees must not be carried out 
in that perfunctory manner which has occasionally, but let 
us hope not too often, characterized their work. We must 
all be continuously on guard to prevent infiltration of Com- 
munists and fellow-travellers into our Lodges. 

While recommending, as we unreservedly do, that Grand 
Lodge confirm all that the Grand Master has reported, in 
his Address, of his work during the year that has passed 
(including the arangements regarding the sixty year pins), 
we wish to congratulate him most sincei'ely and most 
heartily on the spirit he has developed in the Craft during 
his two years in office. These two years have been high- 
lights in the long history of our Grand Lodge. The mem- 
bership of our Lodges has increased, not spasmodically but 
steadily, until it has reached a total never before attained, 
approximately 123,000. And everywhere there is buoyant 
enthusiasm, cheerful optimism, with a renewed and a grow- 
ing interest in the teachings and the principles of Free- 
masonry. For such a condition, for such an "atmosphere," 
the Head of the Craft is largely responsible. The con- 
fident vision, the clear logic, the earnest faith so concisely 
and so brilliantly set forth in his many addresses and his 
printed messages have stirred the brethren to jubilant 
loyalty to the Grand Master and to a heightened and a 



80 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

deepened attachment to the Craft which he has so skilfully 
guided and governed. 

With all respect and with fraternal affection this 
Report is submitted for adoption by Grand Lodge. 

W. J. DUNLOP, 

Chairman. 

LETTERS OF REGRET 

The Grand Secretary advised that several let- 
ters and communications had been received from 
Grand Masters, distinguished brethren and Grand 
Lodges extending most cordial fraternal greetings 
and best wishes and expressing regret that they 
were unable to be present or represented. 



RECEPTION OF GRAND REPRESENTATIVES 

As the Grand Secretary called the roll of Grand 
Representatives of other Grand Lodges those who 
were present attended at the Altar and were wel- 
comed by the Grand Master. Grand Honours were 
then given under the direction of the Grand Director 
of Ceremonies. 

AUDITOR'S REPORT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I beg to report having completed the continuous 
monthly audit of the accounts of the Grand Treas- 
urer and of the Grand Secretary for the year ended 
31st May, 1951, and I have verified the statements 
submitted by the Grand Treasurer showing the 
Receipts and Disbursements of the General and 
the Combined Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds 
for the year ended 31st May, 1951. 

The Investment Securities of the General, 
Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds as set out in 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 81 

the respective schedules accompanying the Grand 
Treasurer's Report were produced by the Canada 
Permanent Trust Company for my inspection and 
found in order. 

I have also audited the "Food Parcels for 
Britain Fund" and the "Manitoba Flood Relief Fund" 
for the year ended 31st May, 1951 with the Records 
of Receipts from Lodges, etc. and the Vouchers for 
the disbursements. All expenses — printing", post- 
age and bank collection charges — were paid for 
by Grand Lodge. 

All of which is fraternally submitted. 

H. FRANK VIGEON, C.A. 

Auditor. 

GRAND TREASURER'S REPORT 

The Grand Treasurer, M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, 
presented his report as follows: 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

My prediction of one year ago has proved to 
be accurate and Grand Lodge has, as I forecast, 
slightly over one and one-eighth million dollars as 
a rampart against the possibility that conditions 
may be less favourable in the near or in the distant 
future. From June 1st, 1950, to May 31st, 1951, 
Grand Lodge increased its total resources by 
$13,378.74. Not very much, you will agree, but 
still a reasonably substantial improvement. When 
the total of our securities (at par values) and our 
cash in hand are added together, the amount is 
$1,131,564.66. 

The members of Grand Lodge and the members 
of the constituent Lodges are invited to study the 
following outline which shows exactly what our 
financial position was on May 31st, 1951.

Same items last year - 1,118,185.92 



Increase during year _ $ 13,378.74 

Once more I ask for the authority to set aside 
a sum of $2,000 to a fund to be used for the cele- 
bration of our Centennial in 1955. This will mean 
that there will be $6,000 in that fund and I esti- 
mate that $10,000 should be available to make that 
Celebration a real success. 

Donations received for Manitoba Flood Relief 
amounted to $17,722.90 and a total of $22,722.90 
has been forwarded to the Grand Lodge of Manitoba. 
We assisted some victims of the flood who are our 
own members, to the extent of $2,500.00. This fund 
has now been closed. The brethren of this Grand 
Jurisdiction have once more demonstrated magnif- 
icently that they are ready and anxious to assist 
the unfortunate and the distressed. 

During the year the Grand Master authorized 
special donations as follows: 

Canadian Red Cross $2,000.00 

Boy Scouts' Association, Ontario Division 500.00 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 S3 

Almost every month in every year some of 
our securities mature and the proceeds are re-invest- 
ed to the best possible advantage but usually at lower 
interest rates. 

The administration of our Grand Lodge is 
conducted at a minimum cost consistent with 
efficiency and for this satisfactory condition of 
affairs we are indebted to our Grand Secretary 
who is indefatigable in the service of Grand Lodge, 
whether in arranging for special communications, 
addressing gatherings of Masons, or in office 
routine. To him and to the loyal and reliable 
members of his staff my cordial thanks are extend- 
ed for their assistance and co-operation. Our 
Auditor is a super-auditor, a Mason who watches 
every detail with diligent care because Grand Lodge 
is of supreme interest to him. The Grand Treas- 
urer's clerk has carried on, as always, most effi- 
ciently and most satisfactorily. 

In the pages that follow there are many inter- 
esting details of receipts, disbursements, and invest- 
ments. I hope that each member of Grand Lodge 
who is here today will take the printed Report home 
and will study carefully the audited and duly certi- 
fied statement of Receipts and Disbursements and 
the Schedules of Investments in the General Fund 
and in the Combined Memorial and Semi-Centen- 
nial Fund. The Canada Permanent Trust Company 
has furnished and has certified the lists from which 
the Schedules have been prepared and the Auditor 
has personally verified these lists. I should remind 
you again that the values set out in each case are 
the par values of the securities. 

This Report is respectfully and fraternally sub- 
mitted for the approval of Grand Lodge. 

W. J. DUNLOP, 

Grand Treasurer.

and Finance. 



GRAND SECRETARY'S REPORT 

The Grand Secretary presented his report as 
follows: 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren : 

I beg to present my annual report for the year 
ended May 31st, 1951, containing, as usual, a Sum- 
mary of Receipts from various sources placed in the 
General Fund; Details of Receipts on the General 
Fund and Ledger Balances as at May 31st, 1951; 
a Summary of Receipts for the year; Details of the 
Returns of Lodges as at May 31st, 1951; a Sum- 
mary of the Receipts and of Payments to the Grand 
Treasurer on account of the Memorial and Semi- 
centennial Funds; and a Statement of the Receipts 
and Disbursements on the Memorial and Semi- 
centennial Funds Revenue Account. 

As an appendix to the Proceedings are recorded 
the Details of the Returns of the 577 warranted 
lodges as of December 31st, 1950, and the three 
lodges under dispensation. 

It is very gratifying to be able to report again 
a substantial increase in our total membership. 
We have passed the all-time high which I reported 
last year. As of December 31st, 1950 our member- 
ship stood at 120,136, which was then 3,138 above 
the 1930 high of 116,998. As I report to you 
today, with the addition of the net gain for the 
six months' period from January 1st, 1951 to 
June 30th, our membership stands at about 123.000. 



92 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

We have had 312 fewer initiations, 23 more affili- 
ations, 27 fewer restorations, 84 more resignations 
and 107 more deaths. Our net increase, as of Dec- 
ember 31st last, is 3,350.

116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 



REPORTS OF THE DISTRICT DEPUTY 
GRAND MASTERS 



The reports of the thirty-five District Deputy 
Grand Masters were presented by the Grand Secre- 
tary and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by the Grand Secretary, they were received 
and referred to the Board of General Purposes. 

The Report of every District Deputy Grand 
Master is addressed to "The Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master, Officers and Members of the Grand 
Lodge A. F. and A. M. of Canada, in the Province 
of Ontario." Each begins "Most Worshipful Sir 
and Brethren," and every one ends, quite rightly, 
"Respectfully and fraternally submitted." To save 
space these formalities are omitted from the be- 
ginning and the end of each Report. 



ALGOMA DISTRICT 

On September 14th Algoma District had the honour 
and pleasure of a visit from the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master J. P. Maher, accompanied by R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, 
Grand Secretary, and the late V.W. Bro. W. S. Gibson. 
The occasion was marked by a banquet in Port Arthur, 
when a large number of the members of the Craft turned 
out to greet the distinguished visitors, and afterwards 
listened to inspmng addresses delivered by the Grand 
Master, R.W. Bro. Dixon, V.W. Bro. Gibson, and R.W. Bro. 
Everton A. Miller, Editor of the Grand Lodge Bulletin, 
who has taken up temporary residence in Port Arthur. The 
following day the dedication ceremonies of the new Lodge 
at Terrace Bay were performed by the Grand Master, assist- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 117 

ed by many distinguished members of the Craft in the Dis- 
trict, and in the evening I had the honour of installing the 
officers of the new Lodge, the Worshipful Master being 
placed in the chair by the Grand Master. This brought 
to a close a very enjoyable day which will long be remem- 
bered by those who were fortunate to be present, and who 
took part in the ceremonies. 

During my term of office I have visited each Lodge 
in the District, and I have been greatly impressed by the 
efficient manner in which the officers conduct their work, 
and the dignity which cannot fail to make the necessary 
impression upon the candidate. All of the Lodges are 
supported by a loyal body of Past Masters, and I find that 
the Secretaries and Treasurers are very competent, and 
their records and accounts are well kept. There are 
few outstanding dues, and there seems to be no let-up in 
the number of candidates who apply for membership in 
the Order. 

To single out one Lodge, I would like to mention the 
Lodge at Hornepayne, which celebrated its twenty-fifth 
anniversary on my official visit. The membership is com- 
posed almost entirely of railway employees (Hornepayne 
being a divisional point), and consequently many of the 
members are not able to attend lodge very regularly, but 
the officers and members who do attend are very enthusi- 
astic about their work, and it was a great pleasure to visit 
with them and enjoy their hospitality. 

On my official visits I expressed the wish of the Grand 
Master, that each Lodge undertake the responsibility of 
a system of Masonic Education. In this I have been great- 
ly assisted by R.W. Bro. Everton A. Miller, who has accom- 
panied me on some of my visits and I am pleased to report 
that each Lodge has a very active committee. It is the 
general custom in many of the Lodges that, after each 
degree, one member of the committee gives a short educa- 
tional talk. 

At a regular meeting of my own Lodge, I had the 
pleasure of presenting V.W. Bro. R. Routly, a charter mem- 
ber of the Lodge, with his fifty-year medal. Bro. Routly, 
although well advanced in years, is still able to attend most 
lodge meetings, and take part in the work. 

Another unique event in Thunder Bay Lodge was the 
initiation, passing, and raising of his two sons by the 
Worshipful Master, W. B. McMullin. 

Masonic Church Services have been held by the indi- 
vidual Lodges during the year, and I have had the pleasure 
of attending a number of them during my term of office.

118 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

BRANT DISTRICT 

In carrying out my duties, I have visited each of the 
fourteen Lodges and I am glad to report that all are in 
good financial condition. In every instance it was most 
gratifying to see the degree work so well exemplified. 

At all meetings of Inspection I had the District Chap- 
lain attend at the altar and read a few verses from the 
volume of the Sacred Law. He also offered a short prayer. 
It is a pleasure to report that we received many favourable 
comments for including this at our meetings. 

All Lodges seem to be taking an interest in Masonic 
Education and each Lodge is receiving and distributing the 
bulletins sent out by Grand Lodge. 

Many new members are being admitted into our Order 
and I was especially pleased with the fine class of men 
who were received by our Lodges, ranging in age from 
twenty-one to sixty. 

I wish to report that we had a good attendance at our 
District Divine Service, whiich was held in the Burford 
United Church on Sunday, May 20th, with the Rev. Bro. 
Wragg as speaker. 

It was my privilege and honour to present Wor. Bro. 
D. H. Secord, of Burford Lodge, No. 106, with a fifty-year 
Past Master's Medal and on June 18th I presented him with 
a pin given by Grand Lodge to members of sixty years' 
standing. 

Two outstanding meetings of my year as D.D.G.M. 
were (1) The dedication of St. John's Lodge, Paris, with 
R.W. Bro. Nelson Hart, Deputy Grand Master, in charge; 
(2) Meeting of the Past Masters and Wardens in Brantford, 
when the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, James P. 
Maher, honoured Brant District by being their guest at a 
banquet on April 10th. The Most Worshipful Grand Mas- 
ter's visit will be long remembered by the Brethren of Brant 
Masonic District. R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary, 
and V.W. Bro. R. H. Saunders accompanied the Grand 
Master on this visit. Much of, the credit for the arrange- 
ments was given to W. Bro. Fred Billo and his committee 
from the Past Masters' and Wardens' Association. 

W. J. STEPHENSON, D.D.G.M. 

BRUCE DISTRICT 

It was with deep regret that we learned of the very 
sudden passing to the Grand Lodge Above of R.W. Bro. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 119 

J. H. Blowes, of Port Elgin, the newly-elected D.D.G.M. of 
Bruce District. We cherish his memory in our hearts. 

During the year every Lodge in the District was visited 
at least once and in most of them degrees were conferred 
on the occasion of my official visits. I have nothing but 
commendation for the excellent manner in which this work 
was done in every case. 

I feel quite satisfied that every Lodge in Bruce District 
has given more time to Masonic Education this past year 
than ever before. This is one thing which I stressed very 
strongly on my visits. I also pointed out how necessary 
it is that every Lodge should investigate its own financial 
situation to make certain that it can still carry on with 
the old rates of initiation fees and yearly dues. 

On May 27th our annual District Divine Service was 
held in the Walkerton United Church, the service being 
conducted by Rev. Bro. D. A. Elmslie, our District Chap- 
lain, who delivered a very inspiring sermon to a very large 
turn-out of the Brethren of Bruce District. We also en- 
joyed a solo rendered by Bro. W. S. Brown, of Saugeen 
Lodge. 

S. W. VOGAN, D.D.G.M. 



CHATHAM DISTRICT 

All the Lodges are enjoying a period of continued 
activity as more men seek admission to the Craft. Great 
care is being exercised in the selection of candidates, thus 
maintaining a high standard of membership. 

The Lodges of the District are becoming more conscious 
of the necessity of Masonic Education and are devoting 
some time at most meetings to this important phase of 
Masonry. 

It is with satisfaction that I report the financial con- 
dition of the fourteen Lodges is sound, the books and rec- 
ords are well kept and the Secretaries are aware of the 
important duties of their office. 

The District Divine Service was held at Highgate on 
May 20th, with Bro. the Rev. A. W. Barker, District Chap- 
lain, in charge. All Lodges in the District were repre- 
sented. Two hundred and fifty members attended. 

The highlight of the year was the reception to the 
Most Worshipful the Grand Master at Ridgetown, April 
12th, when two hundred and fifty Masons attended a dinner 
in his honour. This was also the occasion of the 75th 



120 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Anniversary of my Mother Lodge, Highgate Lodge, No. 
336, A. F. & A. M. The inspiring address of the Grand 
Master delighted all present on this happy occasion. 

It is with regret that I report the death of R.W. Bro. 
Draper, of Chatham, a Past Master of Parthenon Lodge, 
No. 267, Chatham. 

During the year W. Bro. Henry Bloom, Star of the 
East Lodge, No. 422, Bothwell, and Bro. James Skinner, 
Pnyx Lodge, No. 312, Wallaceburg, were presented with 
fifty-year jewels. 

R.W. Bro. A. Von Gunten, Wellington Lodge, No. 46, 
Chatham, was presented with two medals, one indicating 
sixty years' membership and the other showing that he has 
been a Past Master for sixty years. 

M. S. SCOTT, D.D.G.M. 



EASTERN DISTRICT 

I have visited each Lodge at least once officially and 
may report that Masonry in Eastern District is on a sound 
foundation and is flourishing. The type of candidate is 
good, the officers are alert and energetic; the work is 
well clone and the floor work in most cases is done with 
precision and smartness. All Lodges in the District have 
received several new candidates during the year. The 
finances are in very good condition, and the buildings for 
the most part are all in good state of repair. 

The Brethren of Cornwall Lodge, No. 125, are building 
a new Temple which they hope will be ready after the sum- 
mer recess. The Brethren are to be complimented on this 
fine effort. 

I regret to report that Masonic Education in this Dis- 
trict is very badly neglected. The efforts along this line 
have not been as great as they might have been. I feel 
that the proper time to set up a committee is when all the 
Lodges are represented at the Past Masters' and Wardens' 
Association meeting. I have strongly urged the Lodges in 
the District to have a definite plan for the incoming Dis- 
trict Deputy and try to set uo a strong organization to be 
responsible for inducing each Lodge in the District to take 
a deeper interest in Masonic Education. 

During my term I had the privilege of taking part in 
special ceremonies. On my visit to Alexandria Lodge, I 
had the distinct pleasure of pinning the fifty-year medal 
on W. Bro. John Gray. Bro. Gray is not only active in 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 121 

Masonry, but has taken a keen interest in local municipal 
affairs. My visit to Wales Lodge might be considered as 
"Dave' night. The father and four sons sit together in 
Lodge. The father, Alexander Daye, Past Master, has 
initiated, passed and raised his four sons. John A. is Wor- 
shipful Master, Gordon is Senior Warden, Robert is Junior 
Deacon, Wilbert was raised on May 16th, 1950. Alexander 
Daye has every right to be a proud father. On May 18th, 
Hawkesbury Lodge celebrated its fiftieth anniversary. 
The occasion was fittingly observed by holding a banquet 
and over two hundred guests enjoyed a very delightful 
dinner. R.W. Bro. Pitts, of Ottawa, was the guest speaker, 
his address being most interesting' and instructive. 

JAS. A. McARTHUR, D.D.G.M. 



FRONTENAC DISTRICT 

In submitting a report on the condition of Masonry 
in the Frontenac District I am pleased to state that all 
Lodges have been visited officially and that the officers 
are keenly interested in their work. The meetings have 
been well attended and the various degrees conferred in an 
exceptionally impressive manner. 

I regret very much that illness prevented me, during 
the months of April and May, fi*om personally visiting five 
of the Lodges in the District and I wish to express my 
appreciation to many of the brethren in the District for 
their many acts of kindness to me at that tiime, and espe- 
cially to R.W. Bros. Hyland, Pringle, Baines, Meldrum and 
Hodgston, who so kindly substituted for me on those 
occasions. 

The visit of the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother 
J. P. Maher, to Frontenac District was a great success from 
every standpoint and we owe a debt of thanks to him for 
coming to Kingston on this occasion and delivering such 
an inspiring address, and also to W. Bro. Donnelly and the 
various committees who assisted him in arranging and 
carrying out the many duties involved on such an occasion. 

The dedication of the new Masonic Temple at Arden 
was one of the important events of the year and was very 
capably performed by the Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. 
Nelson Hart, assisted by R.W. Bro. Ewart Dixon, the Grand 
Secretary, and a number of Acting Grand Lodge Officers. 
The new Temple is a great credit to the officers and mem- 
bers of St. Andrew's Lodge who carried out this project. 

One of the most interesting events during the winter 
was the initiation of the two sons of R.W. Bro. Harvey 



122 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Milne into Minden Lodge at Kingston. This ceremony 
was performed by R.W. Bro. Milne assisted by a number 
of Past Grand Lodge Officers. 

HERBERT YORK, D.D.G.M. 



GEORGIAN DISTRICT 

Freemasonry in Georgian District maintained a high 
standard during the year and the utmost harmony prevailed. 
I visited the twenty Lodges, some of them two and three 
times, and was much impressed with the fine spirit dis- 
played. The attendance on the occasion of my official 
visits was most gratifying, accommodation being taxed to 
the limit at most meetings. Nearly every Lodge in the 
District had a busy year with degree work, and there evi- 
dently will be a substantial increase in membership, though 
death has taken a heavy toll. The new members appear 
to be of a high standard and the degree work in most cases 
was impressive. 

The District was honoured on two occasions by visits 
of the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master. On May 4th 
he was guest speaker at the Seventy-fifth Anniversary 
Celebration of Georgian Lodge, Penetanguishene, and on 
May 14th he dedicated the new home of Victoria Lodge, 
Victoria Harbour. On both occasions the Grand Master 
spoke to appreciative audiences. 

The Masonic Officers' Association gave leadership in 
promoting Masonic Education, and in November R.W. Bro. 
Harry L. Martyn, Grand Lodge Chairman of Masonic Edu- 
cation, spoke to a large and appreciative gathering repre- 
sentative of the whole District. 

A Junior Warden's Night was held at Coronation 
Lodge, Elmvale, in November, with the Grand Junior War- 
den as W.M. and Junior Wardens of the District in all the 
other chairs. The first degree was conferred in a most 
impressive way. 

Most of the Lodges in the District have excellent 
quarters in which to meet but a few that do not own the 
building are not faring so well. In one case I found it 
necessary to insist that more suitable quarters be found. 
This has been done and the brethren of that Lodge are hap- 
pier and doing better work since the change. 

The high cost of living affects lodge financing, and if 
it were not for the large number of initiations some Lodges 
would find it difficult to operate- In a few cases I advised 
an increase in the initiation fee or in dues. I also advised 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 123 

the officers of Lodges to check carefully the insurance 
carried on buildings and equipment. 

Fraternal visits among the Lodges were frequent and 
these promote good fellowship. There were a number of 
"Father and Son" nights, when a father had the privilege 
of initiating his son. On one occasion a father, at his first 
meeting as Master of his Lodge, initiated his two sons. 

Many of the Lodges held Divine Service with splendid 
attendance. In May a District Service was held with the 
Grand Chaplain as the speaker. All parts of the District 
were well represented. 

M. D. MORRISON, D.D.G.M. 



GREY DISTRICT 

Every Lodge in the District was visited. Books and 
records were in order. Business was conducted according 
to the rules laid down in the Constitution. Meetings were 
well organized. With one exception meetings closed at a 
reasonable hour. Degree work was given, for the most 
part, in such a fashion as to hold the attention and chal- 
lenge the thoughts of the members. The Lodges are well 
officered and in the junior officers they have men who 
should some day occupy the Master's chair with distinction. 
Lodges should and could give more time to the Grand 
Master's Address and to the more significant parts of the 
repoi-ts of the several Committees of Grand Lodge. At- 
tendance records were examined closely and I found the 
low at one meeting 5% of the membership and the high 
at another 65%, while all the Lodges had an average 
attendance of about 32%. To me this is not a satisfactory 
record and there is a challenge to us more active members 
to find ways and means to increase attendance. 

Masonic Education continues to receive a fair measure 
of attention, but again I ask my brethren of Grey District 
to take a more active part in this work. Masonic Educa- 
tion can be a subject at every regular meeting. It can be 
done. St. Albans, No. 200, Mount Forest, is doing it. 

In October, 1950, Prince Arthur Lodge, No. 334, Arthur, 
celebrated its Seventy-fifth Anniversary, and in May, 1951, 
Prince Arthur Lodge, No. 333, Flesherton, recognized 
its 75th birthday. At both gatherings we had the honour 
of welcoming the Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. N. C. 
Hart, who delivered most inspiring addresses to well attend- 
ed meetings. 



124 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Most Lodges have held a Divine Service. On June 
10th, 1951, a District Divine Service was held at the United 
Church, Flesherton. All Lodges in the Distz'ict were well 
represented. The Church was packed. The District Chap- 
lain, Bro. J. W. Pratt, of Mount Forest, preached the ser- 
mon. Bro. Pratt is a Past Grand Chaplain of the Grand 
Lodge of Saskatchewan. 

WM. COUPAR, D.D.G.M. 



HAMILTON "A" DISTRICT 

I have visited officially each of the seventeen Lodges 
in the District and find that there has been a steady in- 
crease in membership; there are few arrearages of dues; 
and excellent candidates have been admitted. The Masters 
and Officers of the various Lodges are well skilled in 
Masonry and conduct the degrees efficiently, impressively, 
and with dignity. 

The finances of the Lodges appear to be in good con- 
dition. The Secretaries are most efficient and perform 
their duties in a creditable manner. 

May I again draw attention to the important work 
done by the Masters' and Wardens' and the Past Masters' 
Associations in "A" and "B" Districts. They are to be 
congratulated on their interest in Masonic affairs. 

It is with deep regret that I report the passing of two 
Past Grand Lodge Officers: R.W. Bro. Stutt, of Dufferin 
Lodge, No. 291; V.W. Bro. Soden, of Hamilton Lodge, No. 
562. "We cherish their memory in our hearts." 

There were two outstanding events during the year: 
First was the constituting and consecrating of Brant Lodge, 
No. 663, Burlington, Ontario; and, second, the dedication 
of new Lodge quarters of Waterdown Lodge, No. 357, 
Millgrove. 

A Divine Service for Hamilton "A" District was held 
on June 3rd in Burlington in co-operation with Burlington 
and Brant Lodges. Nearly all the Lodges of the District 
were represented and a large number were present. An 
excellent message was given by Rev. Bro. Love, of Trinity 
United Church. Many of the Lodges hold Divine Service 
annually and the Masters' and Wardens' Association hold 
two Divine Services during the year. 

Masonic Education was under the direction of W. Bro. 
Angus McLeish, Supervisor for Masonic Education of Ham- 
ilton "A" District, and two meetings were held during the 
year. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 125 

Regular degrees were worked, members of various 
Lodges taking part. Short topics on the degree were given 
by a number of Past Masters. These meetings were well 
attended and served to promote Masonic Education in the 
District. 

GEO. H. DAWSON, D.D.G.M. 



HAMILTON "B" DISTRICT 

During my term of office I visited each Lodge once 
and some of them on two and three occasions. In every 
Lodge I found the officers were very efficient in their 
duties, the degree work being of a high order and the at- 
tendance good. 

Each Lodge has a committee on Masonic Education and 
the reports of these committees which have been sent me 
are very encouraging. R.W. Bro. H. A. Hewitt, Super- 
visor for Masonic Education for this District, has had real 
co-operation from the Lodge committees and his leadership 
has stimulated an active interest in this phase of Masonic 
work. 

On February 21st, it was my happy privilege to pre- 
side over the ceremony of instituting Composite Lodge, 
U.D., and on May 16th I paid an official visit to this Lodge 
when they conferred the Entered Apprentice Degree. I 
am pleased to report that this Lodge is making excellent 
progress and I can see a bright future in store for it. 

Many of the Lodges have held a Divine Service, all of 
which were well attended. A District Divine Service was held 
on June 24th in New Westminster Church in Hamilton. 

E. G. GAWLEY, D.D.G.M. 



LONDON DISTRICT 

During the year one official visit of inspection was 
made to each of the twenty-three Lodges in the District. 
I am happy to advise that the Worshipful Masters and 
Officers of all the Lodges are most efficient and sincere 
in their work. Masonry, generally speaking, is in a most 
flourishing condition and attendance is exceptionally good 
in most Lodges. 

At my visits of inspection I stressed very forcibly the 
importance of selecting good men and true as candidates 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

for Masonry; also the importance of selecting with care 
junior officers who eventually might be Worshipful Mas- 
ter. I spoke quite frequently on benevolence and charged 
the brethren to act with generosity towards their older 
members who might require a helping hand, and to remem- 
ber the dependents of their departed brothers. 

I regret to report that quite a number of the Lodges 
do not seem to find time to study Masonic Education as it 
should be studied. This is, I am inclined to believe, due 
to the fact that there is still an influx of new candidates, 
especially in the larger Lodges, and, in order that meetings 
be not kept too late, this phase of our work is quite fre- 
quently neglected. On the contrary, however, we have a 
number of Lodges who are really doing a splendid job and 
setting a good example for others to follow. One Lodge 
in particular I would like to mention is Union Lodge, No. 
380, which has an outstanding Education Committee who 
are quite often invited to the Lodges throughout the Dis- 
trict, also beyond its borders. We had the distinct honour 
of having as our guest, at our Annual Past Masters' Asso- 
ciation fish dinner, R.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Chairman 
of Masonic Education of Grand Lodge. His message to 
the brethren of the District was most inspiring. 

Our Annual District Divine Service was held in St. 
James' Anglican Church, London, on May 15th. Rev. Bro. 
Henry E. Merifield, District Chaplain, delivered the mes- 
sage. He took as his subject, 'What is Christian Living?' 
Approximately 450 brethren attended this meeting, which 
was one of the largest in recent years. 

Among the highlights during my term was the recep- 
tion of the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Bro. J. P. Maher, 
on September 22nd, 1950. Many distinguished members of 
the Craft were present on that occasion. Another out- 
standing evening was on November 3 7th, 1950, when I 
assisted the Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Nelson C. 
Hart, in dedicating Henderson Lodge, No. 388, at Ilderton. 
Again at this ceremony a great many distinguished Masons 
were present, many of whom came a great distance. Hen- 
derson Lodge is to be congratulated on having such a 
beautiful lodge room. 

During my tenure of office I had the happy privilege 
and honour of presenting the Veteran's Jubilee Medal to 
two of my brethren who have served Masonry well for 50 
years. I regret, however, to report that a number of our 
esteemed members have passed on to the Grand Lodge 
Above. Among them are V.W. Bro. (Dr.) Warren Doan 
and V.W. Bro. A. B. Crawford. It grieved me very much 
indeed to lose my friend and colleague, RW. Bro. W. L. 
Hartsell, D.D.G.M. of our neighbouring District, St. Thomas 
District. He was called to higher service on April 17th 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1951 127 

and was laid to rest with full Masonic honours in beauti- 
ful Elmdale Memorial Park cemetery. 

ARCH. B. CLINTON, D.D.G.M. 



MUSKOKA DISTRICT 

I have visited all Lodges in the District once and some 
of them on several occasions. I found all Lodges in a 
sound state of prosperity and well equipped as to personnel. 
I also note a decided trend toward uniformity in the work, 
due I think to the results of a Lodge of Instruction held 
in Unity Lodge, Huntsville, last year. 

I was privileged to pay my official visit to my Mother 
Lodge on the occasion of its seventy-fifth anniversary. The 
event was marked by three separate communications start- 
ing fittingly with a District Church Service on Sunday, 
May 13th. This service was attended by a large repre- 
sentation of Masons from the District as well as visitors 
from adjacent Districts. The service was held in the new 
auditorium of the Parry Sound High School with the Angli- 
can Rector, Rev. C. H. G. Peto, in charge. He was assisted 
by R.W. Bro. Cannon Colloton, of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, 
and V.W. Bro. Ven. Archdeacon Lindsell, of Gravenhurst. 
We were most fortunate also to have as special preacher 
on this occasion R.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, Past Grand 
Chaplain, Loi'd Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Algoma. 
The regular communication of Granite Lodge was held 
Wednesday, May 16th, at which I paid my official visit and 
many members of Granite Lodge from distant points were 
present for the anniversary. The final event took the form 
of ladies' night on May 17th, when Granite Lodge enter- 
tained her womenfolk in the banquet room. 

It was my privilege also to present Past Masters' 
jewels to five Past Masters of Algonquin Lodge in Emsdale 
on the evening of June 19th. This presentation completed 
a programme of presentations started by Algonquin Lodge 
last March 20th, when some fourteen Past Masters of this 
Lodge were given their jewels. I would like to record here 
that this undertaking by a Lodge in so small a community 
as Emsdale deserves special recognition as an achievement 
in Masonic progress. 

I am also gratified to report the steady progress being 
made by the Past Masters' and Wardens' Association in 
Muskoka District. The regular meeting of this Association 
was held in the ante-room of Granite Lodge on Thursday, 
June 21st, and w r as attended by representatives from all 
but one of the Lodges. After the election of the officers 



128 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

a very spirited discussion took place in connection with the 
decided looseness of members regarding the handling of 
the book formally called "The Work." It was decided that 
the incoming D.D.G.M. should get some direction while he 
is at Grand Lodge regarding this very important subject. 
Discussion also took place regarding the admission of new 
members and I am glad to report that the utmost discretion 
is being observed by all Lodges in this connection. 

F. R. McKINLEY, D.D.G.M. 



NIAGARA "A" DISTRICT 

During my official visits to the thirteen Lodges in 
this District I was much impressed with the dignified and 
impressive manner of conducting the meetings and the 
conferring of the degrees, also the standardization of the 
work which make a lasting impression on the candidate. 
Under these conditions, Masonry in Niagara District "A" 
is flourishing. All the Lodges have been fortunate in re- 
ceiving good candidates in number and quality; Lodge 
finances are in a healthy condition; there was only one 
suspension, restorations being more frequent. 

On Thursday, September 21st, 1950, I had the distinct 
pleasure of being Acting Master of Adanac Lodge, No. 614, 
when I initiated my only son, David John Barr, into the 
secrets and mysteries of Masonry, at which time I was 
assisted by many relatives of the candidate. Again on 
Friday, April 27th, 1951, I was deeply impressed by the 
sincere and dignified manner in which the officers and 
members performed the business and the degree work while 
on my official visit to St. Andrew's Lodge, No. 661, which, 
by the way, is the newest Lodge in this fine District. 

One of my desires upon entering this office was the 
formation of a Masters' and Wardens' Association and 
toward this end I called a District meeting on October 20th, 
at Merritton. The response to my notice was indeed grati- 
fying and I am very happy to say that we now have an 
Association with a paid-up membership of 165. 

Another of my wishes was realized on Friday, January 
12th, when Niagara Districts "A" and "B" enjoyed the dis- 
tinct honour of having as their guests at a dinner recep- 
tion Most Worshipful Brother James P. Maher and R.W. 
Bro. E. G. Dixon, who accompanied the Grand Master. 

All the Lodges are in a sound financial condition and 
the records of each Lodge are well taken care of by their 
respective Secretaries. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1951 



May I state that I consider that the happy condition 
of Freemasonry in Niagara District "A" can be attributed 
to the fact that its principles and the teachings of the 
Order are the first consideration of each Lodge. The cloak 
of indifference is left outside the door of the Lodge and 
the members meet on the level of Brotherly Love, Relief 
and Truth. There, a man is judged by the strength of his 
moral fabric, not by the length of his purse or the breadth 
of his acres. 



ROBERT BARR, D.D.G.M. 



NIAGARA "B" DISTRICT 

Freemasonry in the District is in a very good condi- 
tion. The individual Lodges are thriving and all are finan- 
cially sound. Insurance has been increased or adjusted to 
compensate for increased real estate values as well as for 
the higher values of furniture and regalia. 

Degrees were conferred on nearly all official visits 
and the work was, in all cases, very ably done. It is indeed 
a pleasure to report that the ritual is being adhered to very 
closely. I was also pleased to find that many of the Lodges 
are according the privilege of conferring much of the degree 
work to their junior officers. These brethren are doing 
very fine work and it must create a greater interest for 
them in the work of their Lodge. 

The average attendance at the regular meetings is 
about twenty per cent in the larger Lodges and up to 
about forty per cent in the smaller ones. As the cities 
along the border are very highly organized, this attendance 
is fair but not good. The membership, on the other hand, 
is good and has increased greatly during the past year, re- 
quiring many emergent meetings. I believe that the ma- 
terial coming into the Lodges is of high calibre, yet I 
have not failed to impress on the Masters that careful 
investigation should be adhered to at all times. In this 
way alone can the high ideals of our Order be maintained. 

Your visit, Most Worshipful Sir, to Niagara "A" and 
"B" Districts was much appreciated by all who attended 
this meeting and many favourable comments were ex- 
pressed by the brethren. 

All the Lodges in the District have church parades 

at least once during a Master's tenure of office. Where 

there are two or more Lodges in a city or town, such as 

Fort Erie, Welland and Niagara Falls, the Lodges combine 
and thus have well attended services. 



130 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Our District Service was held on Sunday, June 17th, 
in Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Chippawa, Ontario, under 
the direction of our District Chaplain, Bro. Rev. Harold 
Bagnall. The Lord Bishop of the Diocese of Niagara, the 
Rt. Rev. W. E. Bagnall, delivered an address which will be 
long remembered by all who had the privilege of attending. 

One of the outstanding events of ray year was the 
happy occasion when my Mother Lodge, King Edward VII, 
burned the mortgage on our Temple. V.W. Bro. S. F. Speck, 
our only living Charter Member, officiated and was assisted 
by the older members of the Lodge. This occasion was 
made use of by R.W. Bro. Gray, who gave an excellent 
address on Masonic Education, tieing it in with the early 
difficulties of forming our Lodge. 

E. G. McKENZIE, D.D.G.M. 



NIPISSING EAST DISTRICT 

There are eight Lodges in the District — four in the 
south end and four in the north end. These two sections 
are divided by a distance of one hundred miles between 
North Bay on the south and Cobalt on the north. The 
greatest distance between any two Lodges is one hundred 
and eighty miles — Mattawa to Elk Lake. Good highways 
connect all sections. 

There have been certain outstanding features during 
the year that are worthy of special mention. 

On October 20th, the new lodge building at Mattawa 
was dedicated, the ceremony being conducted by the Deputy 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. N. C. Hart representing the Most 
Worshipful Grand Master. Mattawa Lodge is to be highly 
commended for its enterprise in providing itself with a 
very fine building, owned and operated by the members 
of the Lodge. 

Sturgeon Falls Lodge celebrated its Fiftieth Anniversary 
on September 14th. R.W. Bro. Bishop Wright was the repre- 
sentative of the Grand Master. This was a real highlight 
in the history and life of the Lodge. Many members came 
from long distances, even from Vancouver, to take part in 
the ceremony. Bishop Wright presented Bro. Jessup with 
a fifty-year jewel. 

On June 1st the District was honoured by a visit from 
the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, J. P. Maher, who 
was accompanied by R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary. 
To mark this occasion a banquet was held in the Masonic 
Temple, Haileybury, where well over one hundred Free- 



I 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 131 

masons were in attendance to do honour to our distinguished 
guest. The Grand Master delighted the brethren with an 
informative and educational address on Masonry throughout 
the Jurisdiction. 

On the occasion of my official visit to Nipissing Lodge, 
North Bay, fifty-year medals were presented to Bros. Martin 
and Oldham. 

The District Meeting was held in North Bay on Satur- 
day, June 23rd, when all but two Lodges were represented. 

I am pleased to report that all Lodges in the District 
are in a healthy condition. Some Lodges have had an ex- 
ceptional year owing to certain peculiar circumstances. The 
Hydro development near Mattawa has brought that Lodge 
many good candidates. Temiskaming Lodge on Thursday 
evening, June 21st, had eleven applications, which indicates 
that the status of Freemasonry in the District is veiy good. 

W. G. NIXON, D.D.G.M. 



NIPISSING WEST DISTRICT 

The outstanding event of the year was the visit of 
M. W. Bro. J. P. Maher to Penewobikong Lodge, Blind River, 
on January 19th, where members and visitors from just 
about every Lodge in the District gathered to meet, greet 
and hear an inspiring address from our Grand Master. 
Buses were chartered from Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury; 
several brethren from Lome Lodge, Chapleau, drove some 
three hundred miles in order to be present on this occasion. 

During my term of office I have made an official visit 
to each of the thirteen Lodges. On each visit degrees have 
been conferred and I am pleased to report that the work of 
some of the Lodges was well nigh perfect while the others 
are striving to reach this state of perfection and are very 
near to that goal. 

. Benevolence, Masonic Education, Blood Donor Service, 
and the holding of Divine Service were stressed at each 
meeting and I am very pleased to report that all are receiv- 
ing attention by active committees and special speakers, 
especially Masonic Education, which in the past has been 
sidetracked somewhat by degree work. 

Most Lodges in the District held at least one Church 
parade and attended Divine Service. A District Church Ser- 
vice was held June 3rd, when the brethren paraded to the 
Church of the Epiphany, where R.W Bro. Bishop W. L. 
Wright delivered a very inspiring sermon. 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

All Lodges in the District are in good financial condition; 
lodge premises are in good order, with the exception of 
National Lodge, Capreol, which has a maintenance problem 
on its hands which, I trust, will be overcome in the near 
future. 

It is with profound sorrow that we record the passing 
to the Grand Lodge Above of R.W. Bro. Wallace, of Doric 
Lodge, Little Current, and V.W. Bro. Alex. Shields, of 
Espanola Lodge, Espanola. Both were ardent Masons and 
will be greatly missed not only by members of their own 
Lodges but by all Freemasons throughout this District. We 
cherish their memory in our hearts. 

J. R. HORNE, D.D.G.M. 



NORTH HURON DISTRICT 

I had the pleasure of visiting each of the twelve Lodges 
in North Huron, once officially, some of them many times. 

I found the work of a very high standard in every 
Lodge, and, financially, the Lodges appear to be in a flour- 
ishing condition. 

As the Lodges throughout the District are busy with 
degree work, there has not been too much time for Masonic 
Education, but on my visits to the Lodges, I stressed the 
need of Masonic Education, especially for the new members. 

The highlights of my year as District Deputy Grand 
Master were: On Monday, September 11th, 1950, it was 
my pleasure to present R.W. Bro. Thomas Brown, of Forest 
Lodge, No. 162, Wroxeter, with his Long Service Medal. 
On October 27th, 1950, my Mother Lodge, No. 331, Ford- 
wich, celebrated its 75th Anniversary, and on November 
22nd, 1950, we held a Lodge of Instruction in Kincardine 
when the Third Degree was exemplified by the Past Mas- 
ters of the District. 

During the year several of the Lodges held Divine 
Service, and on Sunday, May 27th, a Distriat Divine Service 
was held in Fordwich United Church, with the District 
Chaplain delivering a very fine sermon. This service was 
well attended by the brethren. 

W. B. McELWAIN, D.D.G.M. 



ONTARIO DISTRICT 

Each of the thirteen Lodges constituting Ontario Dis- 
trict was visited officially and the degree work conferrec 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 133 

by each Lodge was found to be of a very high order. The 
officers of the Lodges performed their duties in a manner 
which showed conformity to the wishes of Grand Lodge, 
diligent preparation, and a knowledge of the principles 
which underlie our ritual. 

The attendance in each case was good and the average 
attendance at all meetings showed the increasing interest 
in the work of the Order. The financial position of each 
Lodge is strong and improving each year. The arrears of 
dues are kept to a minimum,, which is largely due to the 
efficient work of the Secretaries, who are all doing a 
splendid job, which is further evident in the well-kept rec- 
ords of their respective Lodges. 

I have been privileged to be present at various other 
meetings throughout the District and at their socials and 
Divine Services. These have been well attended and this, 
together with the fact that many of our members take an 
active part in the work of their respective churches, dem- 
onstrates to all our support of the work being done by 
religion as an influence for good. 

The Lodges have maintained a high standard of good 
fellowship and have not neglected the social side of Mason- 
ry. There has been a growing interest in Masonic Educa- 
tion by lectures on Masonic subjects and on symbolism. 
This definite effort towards making better informed 
Masons augurs well for the future. 

There was one Lodge of Instruction held this year 
which was well attended and the work was excellent. 

In May Ontario District was honoured by a visit from 
the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother J. P. Maher. 
A reception was held for him at Oshawa under the auspices 
of Lebanon Lodge, No. 139, which that evening was cele- 
brating its 90th Anniversary. 

The Grand Master was the guest speaker at the ban- 
quet and the large gathering from all over the District 
listened with a great deal of interest to his inspiring and 
informative address. 

Masonry is well established in this District, four of 
the Lodges being over 100 years old. Composite Lodge, 
No. 30, Whitby, will celebrate its Centennial next June 
and several others are nearing the mark. 

The District has lost through death this year 
many outstanding Masons whose ranks will be diffi- 
cult to fill. While we mourn their passing, their memory 
will be revered for many years to come. 

W. GORDON BUNKER, D.D.G.M. 



134 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

OTTAWA DISTRICT 

I was able to visit officially all twenty-eight Lodges. 
Masonry in the Ottawa District is flourishing and Lodges 
are in charge of capable and sincerely interested officers, 
which is clearly shown in the manner in which the work 
is put on. Many petitions for membership are being re- 
ceived over the District generally. 

The Past Masters' Association of the District is very 
active, and is serving the District in many ways, such as 
procuring outstanding speakers for their meetings and 
having a committee to visit the sick and the hospitalized. 
The Blood Donor Committee, also appointed by the Past 
Masters' Association, has presented a very commendable 
report. Thanks are due to the brethren who have volun- 
teered as blood donors in this worthy and worthwhile 
effort, and one has only to read or hear the report to feel 
that it is a service of immeasurable value. Valiant response 
has been appreciated and unflagging support is still solicited, 
as the need is great. 

Masonic Education for the District has not been 
neglected and is carried on successfully by several willing 
workers. 

District Divine Services were held in Ottawa and Pem- 
broke, and most of the individual Lodges sponsored Divine 
Services of their own. In all cases brethren were in attend- 
ance in large numbers, thereby showing recognition of 
their duty to God. 

The first of many meetings of special note was when 
I had the pleasure of instituting Temple Lodge, U.D., at 
Westboro Temple, Ottawa, on Octobebr 27th, 1950. The 
Lodge of Fidelity, No. 231, were hosts to Watertown Lodge, 
No. 49, from Watertown, N.Y.; Chaudiere Lodge, No. 264, 
were hosts to Argyle Lodge, No. 65, from Montreal, P.Q., 
with Chaudiere paying a return visit to Argyle, April 28th; 
Acacia Lodge, No. 561, entertained on all Acacia Night, 
May 5th, when brethren from Acacia Lodges in Toronto, 
Hamilton, London, Detroit, U.S.A., and Buckingham, Que., 
were present, and St. Andrew's Lodge, No. 560, were hosts 
to Liberty Lodge, No. 959, of Utica, N.Y. These exchanges 
of national and international visits do much to promote 
brotherly love and fellowship. 

Commendation is due to Lodges in the District which 
plan one night in the year to entertain their ladies, a social 
event to which the ladies look forward and appreciate. On 
one such occasion, St. John's Lodge, No. 63, Carleton Place, 
celebrated by burning the mortgage on their building, re- 
joicing in being free of debt. At this time I had the 
pleasure of presenting 50-year jewels to W. Bro. J. W. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 135 

Patterson and W. Bro. F. A. J. Davis. Bro. (Dr.) C. 
Brown was unable to be there and received his jewel later. 

It is with sorrow we recall the passing of many mem- 
bers of our Craft, among them of Grand Lodge rank, V.W. 
Bro. Wood, R.W. Bro. D. A. Esdale, V.W. Bro. McKeown, 
V.W. Bro. T. R. Browne. Their influence lingers on and 
we cherish their memory in our hearts. 

MERRILL J. HAGGINS, D.D.G.M. 



PETERBOROUGH DISTRICT 

My official visits to the eleven Lodges of the District 
were occasions of real inspiration to me and, I hope, of 
some interest to the Lodges. Degree work was conferred 
in every Lodge at each visit. This was very well done, 
with special attention given to the spirit and solemnity of 
the work as well as to the correctness of the ritual. Each 
Lodge has been quite active during the year with several 
fine candidates being initiated in each. 

Each Lodge in the District is in good financial condi- 
tion. I have stressed the need of keeping unpaid dues at 
a minimum, especially during these times. 

At most of my official visits, Masonic Education was 
provided, and I am happy to report that some Lodges have 
this very well organized. With such a start, I hope that 
all Lodges will continue to do more along this line. 

On June 24, the District Church Service was held at 
St. John's United Church, Campbellford. Nearly all eleven 
Lodges were represented with an attendance of 105, and 
Rev. Bro. G. J. A. Whitehome delivered an inspiring ad- 
dress. Divine Services were held by three or four Lodges 
during the year. 

It is a pleasure to report that the Peterborough Lodges 
have finally purchased a building and lot. Plans are now 
being made to build a new Temple in that city. 

Last December, I had the pleasure of attending the 
twenty-fifth anniversary of Hastings Lodge, when a special 
programme was arranged for the occasion. On my official 
visit to Clementi Lodge, Lakefield, I had the pleasure of 
presenting fifty-year jewels to Bros. Geo. Hendren and 
J. H. Sherin. 

At the close of my term of office, I am pleased to 
report that the condition of Masonry in the District is 
exceptionally good. A fine Masonic spirit exists through- 
out the District. 

HARRY S. EWING, D.D.G.M. 



136 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

PRINCE EDWARD DISTRICT 

During my tenure of office I have paid an official 
visit to all seventeen Lodges in the District. The several 
degrees were exemplified and each Lodge had degree work 
for the official visit of the D.D.G.M., at the conclusion of 
which I could offer only the most hearty congratulations. 

Each Lodge is most ably supported by their Past Mas- 
ters and I feel this to be a very commendable condition for 
the welfare of Masonry. 

This has been a most memorable and successful year 
for Freemasonry and Prince Edward District has been very 
fortunate in having M.W. Bro. Dunlop, the Grand Secretary 
and members of Grand Lodge perform the ceremony of 
dedication of the new Temple in Belleville. Masonry is 
particularly proud of this Temple and the brethren turned 
out in large numbers for the occasion. 

Later, we were again honoured by having R.W. Bro. 
Harry L. Martyn and his assistants at the new Temple to 
conduct a Lodge of Instruction, which we feel was highly 
successful and will materially benefit Masonry as a whole. 

I was particularly honoured to have during my year 
the institution of Temple Lodge in Belleville on January 
1st, 1951. This new Lodge, now under dispensation, is 
most active, is a credit to Masonry and has the support 
and good wishes of every Lodge in the District. A very 
large number of Masons were present on New Year's night 
for the occasion, this being the first institution of a new 
Lodge in this District in over forty years. 

The outstanding event of the year was the reception 
to the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Bro. J. P. Maher, 
early last fall, by Prince Edward Lodge, Picton. A very 
large number of the brethren were present and again I 
feel it to be a most welcome contribution to Freemasonry 
in Eastern Ontario. 

I am most confident that, in every instance when 
Grand Lodge, or any of the various committees of Grand 
Lodge, have any reason or opportunity to visit this Dis- 
trict officially, a most welcome contribution to the welfare 
of the Order will be made. 

Our Past Masters' Association has been reorganized 
and will hold another meeting in August or September. 
They have accepted a large part of the responsibility for 
Masonic Education and I feel sure that another year will 
mark a vast improvement in this field. 

Prince Edward is indeed sorry to have to recall such 
cases through death as those of R.W. Bro. W. €. Mikel, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 137 

of Moira Lodge, Belleville, and R.W. Bro. J. C. Cooper, 
of Prince Edward Lodge, Picton. They were both very- 
able Masons and the loss is keenly felt throughout the 
District. 

A. V. GAEBEL, D.D.G.M. 



ST. LAWRENCE DISTRICT 

All the Lodges in the District were visited during the 
year and at each Lodge I found the work was being done 
in an impressive and accurate manner. I would like to 
give a word of praise to all the Lodges, and particularly 
to those where the membership is small, on the wonderful 
spirit of enthusiasm as shown by their progress in the face 
of present-day difficulties. The work of the Secretaries 
is well and neatly done. It is also reported that a goodly 
number of new Masons is being made throughout the 
District. 

The annual District Divine Service was held in the 
Athens United Church, when the District Chaplain, Rev. 
N. H. Burgess, delivered a very inspiring and impressive 
sermon to about three hundred and fifty members of the 
Order as well as a goodly number of others. Most of the 
individual Lodges also held local church services. 

The highlight of the year was the visit of the Most 
Worshipful, the Grand Master, to St. Lawrence District, 
on the first of May. We of this District greatly appreciated 
the visit by one whose life must be a very busy one. The 
address was inspiring and educational, with some humour 
here and there. On this occasion we were favoured by the 
presence of Bro. Norman Watford, General Superintendent 
of Transportation of the C.N.R. It is indeed a credit to 
our Order that men of this character are willing to give 
time and work in the interest of Freemasonry. 

J. BEAUMONT KELLY, D.D.G.M. 



ST. THOMAS DISTRICT 

St. Thomas District was greatly shocked by the tragic 
death of its District Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Lome 
Hartsell, who passed away quite suddenly from a heart 
attack on April 17, 1951, on the eve of his last official 
visit in the District. Lome endeared himself to the whole 
District by his quiet sincerity and his steady, unwavering 
devotion to his Lodge and his Church. 



138 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The District Secretary, W. Bro. G. H. Vogan, who 
accompanied R.W. Bro. Hartsell on all of his official visits, 
has reported that the condition of the Lodges with respect 
to lodge work, finances, insurance and bookkeeping, is 
excellent. 

The three Masonic Lodges in the City of St. Thomas 
suffered a severe loss when their Masonic Temple was 
completely destroyed by fire on Sunday, January 28th. 
Plans are already well advanced for the reconstruction of 
the Temple on the same site. At the present time the 
Lodges are holding their meetings in temporary quarters 
on the second floor of the Public Utilities Commission 
Building. 

St. Thomas District was honoured by a visit of the 
Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, James P. Maher, on 
February 9th, when the District turned out en masse to 
welcome him. 

The Past Masters' Association is strong and under 
able leadership. We held three meetings during the year, 
the last being our annual meeting and fish supper at Port 
Stanley. 

Our District Church Service, held in Knox Presby- 
terian Church, St. Thomas, was conducted by Rev. Bro. 
Rodney, our District Chaplain, and attended by over five 
hundred Freemasons. At the Fellowship Hour after the 
service all enjoyed an excellent address by Very Rev. Bro. 
R. C. Brown, Rector of St. Paul's Cathedral,, London, and 
Dean of Huron. 

J. R. BANDEEN, D.D.G.M. 



SARNIA DISTRICT 

During the past year the twenty-one Lodges in Sarnia 
District were officially visited at least once; some Lodges 
were visited several times. Degree work was conferred or 
exemplified in all Lodges except one. This Lodge con- 
ferred degrees later, when an extra visit was made. 

I am happy to report that each Lodge has a capable 
Master and efficient officers in the other chairs. The work 
was well done and uniform in every respect. The books 
of each Lodge were examined and found in good shape. 
The finances generally speaking are in splendid condition. 

The outstanding event was the dedication of Inwood 
Lodge's new home. Some thirty present and past Grand 
Lodge Officers, headed by the Deputy Grand Master, R.W. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 139 

Bro. Nelson Hart, and the Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. 
E. G. Dixon, performed this beautiful ceremony. 

The wives of the members of Inwood Lodge served a 
sumptuous turkey banquet to some three hundred mem- 
bers. R.W. Bro. Hart was the guest speaker. Other Grand 
Lodge Officers, including the Grand Secretary, also spoke, 
congratulating Inwood Lodge on their fine achievement. 

Regarding Masonic Education, may I suggest that this 
be placed entirely in the hands of the Grand Chairman, 
who would appoint the district chairmen and have them 
report directly to him. This would have the effect of 
producing a uniform programme throughout the entire 
Grand Jurisdiction. 

I am sorry to report the passing of R.W. Bro. E. G. 
McKelvey, of Liberty Lodge, Sarnia, and V.W. Bro. R. E. 
Wilson, of Arkona Lodge. The loss of these brethren will 
be keenly felt in this District. 

Divine Services held by each Lodge were well attended. 
I would like to make special mention of the service held 
in Strathroy Baptist Church, where W. Bro. Smith, Master 
of Beaver Lodge, was in charge. This Service, under the 
auspices of Beaver Lodge, took on the semblance of a Dis- 
trict Service, when members from surrounding Lodges came 
to hear the District Chaplain, Rev. E. C. Lacey, who took 
as his "theme "Builders with God." At the conclusion of 
the service, your representative placed a wreath at the 
Cenotaph. "Lest we forget." 

STILSON SWALES, D.D.G.M. 



SOUTH HURON DISTRICT 

In carrying out my duties I have visited each of the 
seventeen Lodges of the District and witnessed degree work 
in each. In most Lodges the work was excellently exempli- 
fied. In many I found a genuine effort being made by the 
officers to interest the junior members by having them 
take part of the work. Masonic Education is being stressed 
in all but a few of the Lodges and these were urged to 
place more emphasis on this program. 

The District Past Masters' Association is active and 
held two interesting and instructive meetings which were 
well attended. 

A number of outstanding events in the District during 
the year will be reported elsewhere in the Proceedings of 
Grand Lodge. 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

In conclusion may I report that the excellent standards 
of former years are being - maintained and there appears a 
keen interest in Masonry throughout the District. 

A. R. SCOTT, D.D.G.M. 



TEMISKAMING DISTRICT 

During my term of office each one of the eight Lodges 
in Temiskaming was visited once officially, and some sev- 
eral times. 

Degree work was exemplified at each visit. I found 
the officers very proficient, and the work was done in the 
very excellent manner for which this District is noted. 

The financial structure of all Lodges is sound; a num- 
ber of Lodges have Finance Committees, who work on a 
planned spending programme. This method is recommended. 

The record books, regalia, lodge furniture and Masonic 
buildings are in excellent condition, and arrears of dues 
are at a minimum. I would like to congratulate the Secre- 
taries on the capable manner in which they perform their 
duties. 

Divine Services were held by all Lodges, with large 
attendances. 

Masonic Education is carried on by each Lodge 
through lectures, talks and discussion, given by competent 
brethren; new members are encouraged to take part in 
the work. 

Invariably where benevolence was required, the Lodges 
have not lost sight of one of the fundamental tenets to 
which we all subscribe. The Lodges are to be commended 
for the high calibre of the candidates being admitted in 
this District; surely a firm foundation for the future of 
Masonry is being laid. 

Temiskaming District was honoured by a visit from 
the Grand Master, M.W. Bro. J. P. Maher, accompanied by 
R.W. Bro. E. G Dixon, Grand Secretary, in May, 1951. 
Meetings were held at Kirkland Lake, Kapuskasing and 
Timmins. 

At the Grand Master's request no official reception 
was arranged in the lodge room, and no regalia worn, his 
meetings taking the form of a banquet at 7.00 p.m., which 
made it possible for the brethren to return home at an 
early hour. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 141 

The Grand Master was the guest speaker and on each 
occasion a very large gathering listened with pleasure to 
his very inspiring and informative addresses. 

The brethren were unanimous in voicing their approval 
to the Grand Master for his foresight in instituting this 
informal greeting on his official visit. Temiskaming Dis- 
trict feels that the Grand Master has set a precedent which 
will become universal throughout all Districts in this Grand 
Jurisdiction. 

It is my sad duty to report that many brethren in this 
District passed to the Grand Lodge Above during my term 
of office, among whom was R.W. Bro. Claude Bolton, 
P.D.D.G.M. of this District and a member of Cochrane 
Lodge, No. 530. 

G. D. ADAMS, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "A" 

In September, 1950, it was my pleasure to attend at 
Lambton Mills Temple and participate, with M.W. Bro. 
W. J. Dunlop, presiding, and under the direction of R.W. 
Bro. E. G. Dixon, the Constituting and Consecrating of 
the Sunnylea Lodge, No. 664; also I had the pleasure, the 
following month, of installing and investing the Worship- 
ful Master and Officers of this new Lodge. 

Viewing the work done by each Lodge, and their book 
records, I am of the opinion that Masonry in Toronto Dis- 
trict "A" is in very capable hands because the efficiency 
of the w T ork was, in general, very good; also the financial 
condition ,of the Lodges was quite satisfactory with proper 
care being taken for conserving, as well as increasing their 
reserve funds; also, in most cases, keeping the outstand- 
ing dues low. 

A Divine Service for the District was held in April at 
Morningside Presbyterian Church, which is in charge of 
the District Chaplain, Bro. (Rev.) Edgar Foreman, who, 
some months previously, had suffered a serious illness but 
who, I am happy to state, was sufficiently recovered to be 
with us and deliver to the brethren and friends, at this 
well-attended Masonic Service, an uplifting and com- 
mendable sermon. The year was outstanding for the num- 
ber of Divine Services within the District, under the aus- 
pices of individual or collective Lodges, most of which it 
was my privilege to attend, and I deem it most gratifying 
to see Masonry maintain its close relationship to Churches 
of varied denominations as well as to Synagogues. 



142 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Masonie Education reached a high level with two Dis- 
trict Education Nights being held, in January at Annette 
Street Temple, and in March at College Street Hall, both 
of which had capacity attendances and were very favour- 
ably received by the brethren. 

The Wardens' Association, as in past years, continues 
the excellent work of enabling these potential rulers of 
Lodges to become better acquainted with each other, as 
well as giving them the opportunity of making themselves 
proficient by visiting some Lodges and taking part in the 
work. 

A number of veteran members of the Craft, within 
the District, were recognized by presentations from Grand 
Lodge and in particular I would like to mention my official 
visit to Mimico Lodge, No. 369, when I had the pleasure 
of presenting R.W. Bro. Emerson Bull, P.D.D.G.M., with 
his "Fifty Years a Past Master" medal. 

Response to appeals by the Toronto Masonic Blood 
Donor Service for blood donors and cash donations was 
readily given by members and Lodges throughout the year. 

As always, there were those sorrowful partings with 
brethren who passed to the Grand Lodge Above. Two out- 
standing members of the Craft who passed away and will 
ever be remembered for their lengthy and able services 
were R.W. Bro. A. B. Rice, P.D.D.G.M. (1917), and R.W. 
Bro. W. H. Tuck, P.D.D.G.M. (1934). 

In concluding this report, may I, as the representative of 
the largest District under the jurisdiction of our Grand 
Lodge, respectfully suggest that consideration be given 
to the formation of a committee to report upon the possi- 
bility of dividing the present four Toronto Districts into 
five more evenly distributed divisions which would not only 
permit each D.D.G.M. greater opportunity to fraternize 
with the brethren and the Lodges, but will also allow for 
expansion of these Districts in the future, which, assuredly, 
will become necessary with the great influx of desirable 
men who are seeking the fraternal friendship of our great 
organization so aptly named, in these uncertain times — 
Freemasonry! 

HAROLD W. TAYLOR, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "B" 

Having visited each of the twenty-nine Lodges once 
and in most instances twice, I can most assuredly vouch 
for the excellent manner in which the cause of Masonry 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 143 

is being advanced in Toronto "B." I have been most im- 
pressed with the high calibre of the ritual work, the zeal 
and sincerity of the officers, and the evident interest of 
the members in the principles of our Fraternity. The Mas- 
ters are to be commended for their work of creating and 
maintaining a zest for things Masonic. They are truly 
employing and instructing their brethren in Masonry. 

The lodge records are being kept in a commendable 
manner and with the influx of members the lodge finances 
are in a very healthy condition. Moreover, most Lodges 
are systematically setting up reserves. 

A realistic attitude is being taken towards Masonic 
Education. Two District meetings on education and in- 
struction were held to disseminate ideas. I was most 
gratified with the response to my request for talks or 
demonstrations on the occasions of my official visits. I 
received much inspiration from them. There is a very 
obvious effort to get more Masonry in the men presently 
in the Order rather than simply to get more men into 
Masonry. Also it would appear that the portals of our 
Lodges are being well guarded. 

In company with Toronto "D" it was a distinct pleas- 
ure and an honour to tender a reception to the Most Wor- 
shipful the Grand Master. That evening will long be re- 
membered by those privileged to attend, as being one of 
profit and enjoyment. 

The close link of our Craft with the Church was mani- 
fested by the excellent attendances at the District Divine 
Service and the several Lodge Divine Services. 

W. K. BAILEY, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "C" 

Masonry is on the march forward in Toronto District 
"C." I believe the condition of Masonry in our twenty- 
seven Lodges has never been better. In every Lodge the 
Master, Past Masters and officers are striving earnestly 
to give proper attention to the economy of each Lodge, 
and to maintain a high quality of work. The results of 
these efforts were clearly shown in the high percentage 
of membership attendance at meetings throughout the year, 
the calibre of the work done in every Lodge visited, and the 
reasonable amount of outstanding dues. In many cases 
Lodges were able to close the year with no amounts over- 
due, and others showed a decrease in the outstanding 
amount from the previous year. 

On every occasion when a candidate was to be initiated, 
I interviewed the petitioner and was greatly impressed by 



144 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the calibre of the men being accepted into the Craft. This 
was particularly pleasing in view of the fact that while a 
substantial number of additions were made to membership, 
in no Lodge was the number high enough to require any 
unfavourable comment. 

I should like to pay tribute to the Secretaries of the 
Lodges for the general excellence of their records. Minutes 
of all meetings are properly recorded, as well as the re- 
ceipts and disbursements. 

During my remarks in the Lodge room, I referred on 
every occasion to the advisability of appointing an His- 
torian, because so many of the Lodges in the District are 
moving towards important anniversaries and a written 
history is essential to the proper observance of those anni- 
versaries. A high percentage of the Lodges have up-to- 
date histories, and in almost all other cases, Historians 
have been appointed and histories are being prepared. 

A good deal of work was done in Masonic Education, 
and I stressed at each Lodge the desirability of enlarging 
such programs. The type of program that seems to hold 
the most appeal for members is that of the discussion 
group and I would recommend that this work be continued 
under interested and enthusiastic leadership. 

I am very happy to report that every Lodge is giving 
close attention to the work of Benevolence, some Lodges 
having made outstanding contributions in this respect. 

The District was particularly unfortunate in the loss, 
by death, of ten past members of Grand Lodge, including 
one Past District Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. G. 
Herbert McKelvie, in whose passing the Craft sustained 
the loss of a zealous and expert Brother. 

One of the most pleasant and enthusiastically supported 
events of the year was the reception to the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master, held in November, when we were privi- 
leged to listen to an inspiring and instinctive address by 
Most Worshipful Bro. Maher, one that will long be remem- 
bered and quoted. Another outstanding event was the Dis- 
trict Church Service held at the Grand Master's Church 
home, St. Michael and All Angels, at which the District 
Chaplain, V.W. Bro. C. P. Shapter, delivered a stirring 
address and in which the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master and I participated. 

The Bar to the Veteran Jubilee Medal commemorating 
60 years in the Craft has been particularly well received 
by the recipients, who number many in the District. 

There is a question which I respectfully suggest should 
receive attention and that is whether the four Toronto 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 145 

Districts should now be divided into, say, six Districts. 
It probably is beyond question that the representatives of 
the Grand Master could maintain closer contact with the 
programs of the Lodges and do a more effective admin- 
istrative job, if each had fewer Lodges under his super- 
vision.

TORONTO DISTRICT "D" 

My official visitation to each Lodge in the District 
has convinced me that all are being administered in accord- 
ance with the requirements of Grand Lodge. Degrees were 
conferred on every occasion and I have been satisfied with 
the efficiency and sincerity of the officers and brethren, 
and particularly the impressiveness which characterized 
the work. It has been inspiring to note that each Lodge 
has an active group of Past Masters who continually give 
encouragement and instruction. 

All Lodges have received many applications and I have 
been impressed with the calibre of the candidates. I have 
found that careful investigation of those seeking admission 
into our Fraternity is being undertaken. However, I sug- 
gest in this connection that Grand Lodge consider the ad- 
visability of adopting a uniform Investigation Form. 

The books and records of all Lodges were thoroughly 
inspected and found to be well kept, and the general finan- 
cial picture is an excellent one. It has been very gratifying 
to note that proper attention is being given to Lodge ben- 
evolence. 

I have seen an abundance of proof that Masters are 
planning their meetings well and bringing them to a con- 
clusion in good time and this has brought about increased 
attendance. All Lodges have active "Sick and Visiting" 
Committees and the work in this respect is worthy of special 
mention. 

Masonic Education is now well established in every 
Lodge and I have been gratified to find strong Masonic 
Study Groups existing in many. It has now become a 
practice in each Lodge for one member to give a short talk, 
which in every instance has not only proven interesting 
but most instructive. On October 27th, 1950, and again on 
April 27th last, a General Meeting on Masonic Education 
was held at the Freemasons' Hall, College Street, which 
proved most successful. These meetings were attended 
by representatives of all Lodges and not only was informa- 



146 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

tion imparted on Masonic Education but also on general 
topics. 

The District Divine Service was held on Sunday, April 
1st, at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, under the auspices 
of its Pastor, the Rev. F. D. Douglas, District Chaplain, 
and this was exceptionally well attended. Several Lodges 
in the District have also held Divine Services, all of which 
I have been pleased to attend. 

The District was honoured when in conjunction with 
Toronto District "B" a reception was tendered to the Most 
Worshipful, the Grand Master, on Thursday, April 5th. 
This was largely attended and the Grand Master's mes- 
sage was very inspiring and will always be remembered 
by those privileged to hear it. 

Two Lodges in the District, namely, Alpha and Cathe- 
dral, had Installation Ceremonies which are worthy of 
note in that the Masters were installed by their fathers. 
The Installation Ceremony at Cathedral Lodge was con- 
ducted by Wor. Bro. Austin D. Hodgins, a member of over 
sixty years' standing and a Past Master for over fifty 
years. On this occasion the Senior Warden and Inner 
Guard were also invested by their fathers, who were Past 
Masters. 

Generally speaking I have been very much impressed 
with the condition of Masonry in the District and feel sure 
the brethren have a full realization of its great purpose 
and mission and consequently we may look forward to the 
future with hopefulness and assurance. 

In conclusion, may I respectfully suggest that Grand 
Lodge reconsider the advisability of enlarging the number 
of Districts in the Toronto area. I am constrained to say 
that by so doing it would afford an opportunity to the 
District Deputy Grand Master to make greater contacts 
with' the brethren and enable him to bring added stimulus 
to the interest and activities of the respective Lodges. 

M. A. SEARLE, D.D.G.M. 



VICTORIA DISTRICT 

My visits of inspection to each of the thirteen Lodges 
in Victoria District were occasions of real inspiration to me, 
and I hope of some benefit to the Lodges as well. 

Degrees were conferred at twelve of these meetings, 
and I am pleased to report that in every case the work was 
given in such a manner as to challenge the thought and 
hold the attention of those present. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1951 147 

The type of candidates being initiated appears to be 
of the highest calibre. Several of our Lodges are holding 
the interest of their newer members by having them take 
part in the work. 

My visit to Murray Lodge, Beaverton, on May 1st was 
the happy occasion of their first meeting in their new 
Lodge rooms, all Lodges in the District extending greetings 
in a practical way. On May 9th I had the privilege and 
honour of presenting a Veteran Jubilee Medal to V.W. 
Bro. W. J. Thorn, who has for many years been Secretary 
of Lome Lodge, Omemee. 

On my visits to North Entrance Lodge, Haliburton, I 
had the pleasure of participating in the initiation, passing 
and raising of my son, Bro. W. D. Warren, with the hope 
that the Masonic tradition will be carried on in our family 
when I have laid down my tools. 

During the year I was grieved to note the passing of 
a large number of our brethren, among these being V.W. 
Bro. Devine, Bro. C. L. Davidson, W. Bro. E. O. Pettet, 
Bro. Wm. Gilbert, Bro. C. D. H. McAlpine, Bro. F. R. Wil- 
ford, Bro. G. R. Wells, Bro. W. C. Ridout, Bro. Angus 
Campbell, Bro. Chas. Shier, Bro. J. A. Walton, Bro. Jas. 
S. Mackey, Bro. J. H. Miller, Bro. Wm. Warren, Bro. A. E. 
Gregory, Bro. Clyde Gregory, Bro. Harry Puffer. We 
mourn their loss and cherish their memory. 

The material received from the Chairman of Masonic 
Education was distributed and has been of great benefit 
in arranging the educational programmes. Owing to the 
amount of degree work throughout the District, Masonic 
Education has not had the support that it deserves; this, 
however, will be improved with the opening of the fall 
season. 

I am very pleased to report that the condition of 
Masonry in Victoria District is healthy, prosperous and 
happy. 

FRED. W. WARREN, D.D.G.M. 



WELLINGTON DISTRICT 

In each of the twenty Lodges of Wellington District 
during the past year I have seen the officers confer a 
degree, generally the E. A. Degree, and in every case it 
was done exceedingly well. The books of each Lodge have 
been carefully examined and they all show that the business 
affairs of each Lodge are well taken care of. Only six- 



148 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

tenths of one per cent of the total membership are twelve 
months in arrears for dues. Several Lodges report all 
dues paid up. 

Best of all, I am very glad to report that the splendid 
Masonic traits of character that mark good Masons every- 
where are to be seen plainly among the brethren of every 
Lodge, producing good citizens, ensuring good morals, 
provoking generous benevolence and kindly sympathy, and 
promoting real fraternity. Reverence for Him whose 
Sacred Symbol hangs in the centre of the Lodge was ap- 
parent in the manner in which the prayers were offered 
and the more religious parts of the lectures were given. 
The attitudes of the brethren in singing the National An- 
them revealed a staunch loyalty to the state. The number 
of Church Services attended by the local Lodges, as well 
as the large attendance at the District Church Service in 
Guelph on May 20th, testified to a high regard for the 
Church. Loyalty to the Most Worshipful the Grand Master 
was shown plainly in the courteous and cordial reception 
accorded the District Deputy in every Lodge, as well as 
in the scores of hearty fraternal greetings extended to 
him by individual Masons he had never known before. The 
numerous inter-Lodge visits reported and the large num- 
bers of brethren who came from many Lodges to fill the 
halls on the occasions of my official visits furnished ample 
evidence of the prevailing spirit of fraternity in the Dis- 
trict; and that the fraternity begets benevolence is seen in 
that all the Lodges have committees for looking after the 
needy and the sick. 

A most successful Lodge of Instruction was held at 
Waterloo, sponsored by Waterloo Lodge. Every Lodge has 
a Committee on Masonic Education and reported the work 
done was limited much by the numerous degrees to be con- 
ferred. (The E. A. degree alone has been conferred 169 
times in the District during the year.) Sixteen Lodges 
own a Masonic library, thereby affording their members 
opportunity for private study. 

I am pleased to be able to report that I believe Mas- 
onry in Wellington District to be in excellent condition 
This is not to say there is not room for improvement, but. 
all in all, the Lodges are doing very well. 

WM. G. KITCHEN, D.D.G.M. 



WESTERN DISTRICT 

In September we were highly honoured with a visi'" 
to our District by our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Bro. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 149 

J. P. Maher; the Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. Ewart G. 
Dixon, and V.W. Bro. W. S. Gibson, Past Grand Senior 
Deacon. Two meetings were held, one in Keewatin on 
September 11th and the other at Fort Frances on September 
12th. These meetings with our Grand Officers were greatly 
appreciated, and they help to stimulate the true Masonic 
spirit in this "farthest-away District" in our Grand Juris- 
diction. 

I have visited every Lodge in the District officially 
once, and as many as possible two or three times fraternally 
during the year, and have found all books and records 
kept in a very satisfactory manner. The degree work, which 
has been very heavy in the District the past year, was 
conferred in a manner well up to standard, all members 
taking a keen interest in the work. Special mention should 
be made on the progress of our baby Lodge of the District, 
Chukuni Lodge, No. 660,, at Red Lake. There is no short- 
age of officer material there,, as many of the members 
sitting on the side can do much of the degree work. 

Masonic Education has received fair consideration in 
most of the Lodges, but, owing to the great influx of new 
members, it has had to take a second place. It is hoped 
that in the near future this all-important phase of our 
work will receive more thought and effort. 

On December 24th, 1950, two of our Lodges at Kenora 
had a very sad setback in the loss of their beautiful lodge 
room by fire; all records, furniture, and many priceless 
historical treasures were lost. We must, however, give 
great credit to these brethren; they are not in the least 
discouraged, as they are in the process of making prepara- 
tions for a new building of their own, in a new location. 

It is also my sad duty to record the passing to the 
Grand Lodge Above of that grand old Mason, R.W. Bro. 
Alfred H. Watson, on February 12th, 1951, at the ripe 
age of 90 years. R.W. Bro. Watson's was a familiar face 
at all Lodge meetings, and he was active in all things 
pertaining to the Craft up to one year of his passing. We 
cherish his memory in our hearts. 

On April 26th, I had the pleasure of presenting, on 
behalf of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, the fifty- 
year jewel to Bro. Wm. Lockhart at Ionic Lodge, Rainy 
River. 

Every Lodge in this District has attended Divine Wor- 
ship in a body at some time during the year, three of which 
I had the pleasure of attending. 

In conclusion I wish to report the condition of Masonry 
in this District as most favourable; all Lodges appear to 



150 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

be in good standing financially, and the true spirit of broth- 
erly love prevails throughout the entire District. 

N. STANLEY MARSH, D.D.G.M. 



WILSON DISTRICT 

I am pleased to report that in my judgment Masonry 
in Wilson District is in a very healthy condition. I visited 
each of the twenty Lodges in the District at least once, 
some more than once, and on every one of my official in- 
spections saw a degree worked. On nearly all occasions, 
the ritualistic work by the Masters, Past Masters, and junior 
officers was very gratifying to me and called for little or 
no criticism. In many instances it was beautifully done. 
The financial and attendance records in all the Lodges 
were good and what in my opinion is most important, the 
fraternal spirit and friendly atmosphere are excellent. 

Masonic Education has received the best of attention 
through the efforts of the Supervisor, Dr. A. E. William- 
son, of Erie Lodge, who, being himself a keen student of 
Freemasonry, delivered at many meetings, concise and 
interesting talks on Masonic symbolism, while he also 
stressed the importance of Masonic Education and urged 
the Masters to arrange to devote a short period regularly 
to this phase of our work. 

Unfortunately, the District Chaplain, W. Bro. Milton 
Woodger, of Erie Lodge, passed away in November. To 
fill this office I appointed W. Bro. Theodore McMillan, also 
of Erie Lodge, and he kindly arranged for a District 
Church Service on May 27th in St. Paul's Anglican Church, 
Port Dover, when V.W. Bro. Canon Cornish, the Rector, 
preached a most timely and thought-provoking sermon 
and was assisted in the service by the District Grand Lodge 
Officers. There was a fair attendance from various Lodges 
in the District in spite of rainy weather. 

T. B. BARRETT, D.D.G.M. 



WINDSOR DISTRICT 

It was my privilege to officially visit all Lodges in the 
District once and several unofficial visits were made. I 
have witnessed the work of all regular officers and found 
that the work is uniform and of high standard. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 151 

We are indebted to Wor, Bro. Wm. Doran for accept- 
ing the duties of Supervisor of Masonic Education. He 
personally visited all Lodges and his enthusiasm, knowl- 
edge and ability to communicate that knowledge to others 
will have a valuable influence on the future of Masonry 
in this District. My thanks to the committee who so ably 
assisted him. 

The healthy condition of Freemasonry in the District 
is marked by the good attendance at all meetings, and by 
the interchange of fraternal visits, not only within the Dis- 
trict, but in other Districts and with Lodges in our Sister 
Jurisdiction, the Grand Lodge of Michigan. This practice 
I have encouraged and have joined in the visits and thus 
further cemented the border Friendship between these 
Grand Jurisdictions. 

Many meetings, including Divine and Memorial Services, 
and events of special significance took place during the 
year, all worthy of note, but due to limitations I am unable 
to enumerate them. 

On January 5th R.W. Bro. Nelson C. Hart, Deputy 
Grand Master, honoured the District on the occasion of the 
Installation and Investiture Ceremonies of Windsor Lodge, 
No. 403. His address was an inspiration to all present. 

January 29th marked the occasion of your visit, Most 
Worshipful Sir. Your presence and the inspiring message 
you broughht to us will long be cherished by the member- 
ship of this District. I assure you I express the sentiments 
of all when I say, "Thanks, may health and happiness be 
yours for many years to come." 

The Past Masters' and Officers' Association is a valu- 
able asset to the District, and may I express special thanks 
to President Wor. Bro. James Burt, Wor. Bro. Charles 
Brown, Wor. Bro. Wm. Doran, Chairman Blood Bank, and 
the various committees for their assistance in all endeavors. 

During the year several brethren, including two dis 1 - 
tinguished Masons, R.W. Bro. L. N. Mallott and R.W. Bro. 
John Briggs passed to the Grand Lodge Above. To the 
relatives and friends, our deepest sympathies. Gone but 
not forgotten. We cherish their memory in our hearts. 

L. J. DEAN, D.D.G.M. 



152 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL DEAD 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. L. 
Wright, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Wright, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Fraternal Dead report a list of 
Masons who have relinquished their Masonic duties, which 
list <is greater than former years. While we naturally are 
reluctant in having this information before us, still we are 
privileged to honour their names and mark their Masonic 
pursuits in this Report. But particularly are we given the 
opportunity on such an occasion to come face to face with 
one of the primary teachings of Masonry, namely the Im- 
mortality of the Soul. What assurance have we of life 
beyond the grave ? It is a remarkable phenomenon that 
age after age should ponder what the question seems to 
imply, and be unwilling to let it go. 

The reason why men will not let this question alone is 
because death will not let us alone. This is especially true 
in our list of deceased Grand Lodge members this year. It 
is, as I have stated, one of the longest lists in history and 
includes many who have contributed richly to the well-being 
of Masonry. One and another of those whose friendship 
has for many years been precious to us, whose Masonic 
comradeship was full of inspiration, suddenly have gone 
away. 

I am anxious to share with you my wonder, and my 
longing, and my hope concerning our brothers who have 
entered the Grand Lodge Above. No one can prove im- 
mortality. One great saying of Martineau is "We do not 
believe in immortality because we can prove it, but we try 
to prove it because we cannot help believing it." The 
scientist knows the truth of that saying. Some things he 
can prove. Other things he believes, not because he can 
prove them, but he keeps endlessly trying to prove them 
because he believes them. 

I. We cannot help believing in immortality because it 
confirms the universal craving of humanity. The belief in 
a life beyond is as widely accepted as religion itself. 
Amongst the rudest and must uncultured and even savage 
races of the earth, this belief has been one of the most 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 153 

general possessions. Through the centuries, the purity of 
belief in immortality has been in the ratio that God was 
apprehended and intelligently worshipped. Cicero said, 
"There is, I know not how, in the minds of men a certain 
presage of a future existence, and this takes the deepest 
root and is most discoverable in the greatest and most 
exalted souls." The great Roman Senator stated a well 
known fact. If we call the roll of the great names of his- 
tory and literature we find that they display a remarkable 
unanimity in their hope of a hereafter. Men like Homer, 
Socrates, Plato, the philosophers of India and the sages of 
China have all agreed in looking for a life beyond the 
grave. To be sure there have been and are sincere and 
clear-thinking men who have come to the conclusion that 
death is the end of all. But even these have not always 
succeeded in crushing the deep desire of their natures in 
this regard. Huxley, who denied immortality, wrote in 
1883 to John Morley: "It is a curious thing that I find 
my dislike to the thought of extinction increasing as I get 
older and nearer the goal. It flashes across me at all sorts 
of times with a sort of horror that in 1900 I shall probably 
know no more of wnat is going on than I did in 1800. I 
had sooner be in hell a good deal." If God, the Great 
Architect of the Universe, has placed in man the instinct 
of a nobler and higher life after death, will He be so cruel 
as to delude and disappoint him? There is something 
satisfying in what Browning has to say: 

"I go to prove my soul; 
I see my way as birds their trackless way, 
I shall arrive! What time, what circuit first, 
I ask not; I shall arrive — 
He guides me and the bird." 

Emerson's last essay was on immortality. In it he 
wrote these words: "The implanting by the Creator of a 
desire in the human bosom, indicates that the gratification 
of that desire is in the constitution of the creature that 
feels it. The Creator keeps his word with us. All I have 
seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not 
seen." The Creator keeps His word. I rest my faith on 
that. 

II. I cannot help believing in immortality because of 
the teaching found within the pages of the Volume of the 
Sacred Law. One great and profound truth found therein 
is that the Saints of God who have crossed "the Divide of 
Death" are living still. To most of us death is still the King 
of Terrors. The unrelieved sorrow with which we surround 
it, the fear with which we shrink from it, give proof enough 
of our failure to realize in the realm of conduct the great 
scriptural truth which we are facing in the Report of the 
Committee on Fraternal Dead. In the memorials of Sir 
Edward Burne-Jones, we read his account of Browning's 



154 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

funeral. It was far too sombre to please him. He writes, 
"I would have given something for a banner or two and 
much would I have given if a chorister had come out of 
the triforium and rent the air with a trumpet." The trum- 
pet, with its defiant note of life triumphant over death, 
that is what Burne- Jones wanted to hear: and I think we 
urgently need to hear it too. It rings with clarion blast 
through the pages of the Sacred Law. "God is not the 
God of the dead, but of the living; for all live unto Him." 
As we stand by his empty tomb we know that death is only 
an episode in continuing life, a bend on the road that leads 
the pilgrim home. As Masons, let us lay hold of this 
great fact. 

With this background we pay our respects to those of 
our brothers in Masonry who at this time, although removed 
from this mortal sphere, are yet with us in spirit. Many 
have laboured zealously and long in the interests of our 
venerable Craft. We convey our sympathy to their loved 
ones, ever remembering that by the Masonic witness of 
our brothers they have left an indelible impression upon 
those who remain. 

Therefore in thanksgiving to Almighty God for the life 
and Masonic influence of His servants we remember with 
reverence and humility the following: —

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 165 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
CONSTITUTION AND LAWS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. R. B. 
Dargavel, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. Dargavel, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Committee on Constitution and Laws begs leave 
to report as follows: 

(1) Pythagoras Lodge, No. 137, of Meaford, has 
petitioned to be transferred from the Georgian to the Grey 
District. There are at present twenty Lodges in the 
Georgian District and eleven Lodges in the Grey District. 
As Meaford is at a convenient distance from Owen Sound 
and from several of the Lodges in the Grey District, it 
appears that this transfer would tend to a more equal dis- 
tribution of the work of the District Deputy Grand Masters 
in these two Districts. 

The present D.D.G.M.s of the Georgian District and 
the Grey District approve of this change and in the opinion 
of your Committee this transfer is desirable. We, there- 
fore, recommend the petition be granted and that Pythag- 
oras Lodge, No. 137, be and is hereby transferred from the 
Georgian to the Grey District. 

(2) R.W. Bro. Home, D.D.G.M. of Nipissing West 
District, has filed a petition from Lome Lodge, No. 622, 
Chapleau. This petition makes two requests: 

First, that the jurisdiction of this Lodge be extended 
to include White River, which is now in the jurisdiction of 
Terrace Bay Lodge, No. 662, and also to include in the 
jurisdiction of Lome Lodge, Cartier, which is now in the 
territory where the two Lodges in Sudbury and the Lodge 
in Copper Cliff have concurrent jurisdiction. It should 
be noted in considering this petition that the jurisdiction 
of Lodges in five of the Districts in Northern Ontario is 
not governed by halfway to the nearest Lodge but by the 
lines of nearest railway travel. White River is 122 miles 
from Terrace Bay and 130 miles west from Chapleau. 
Cartier is 136 miles east from Chapleau and 34 miles from 
Sudbury. This petition is most unusual, as we are asked 
to transfer part of the territory of two other Lodges into 
the jurisdiction of the Lodge at Chapleau. The reason 



166 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

assigned for this unprecedented request is "that sufficient 
territory may be made available to Lome Lodge to main- 
tain a standard of Masonry in this area." 

The material outlook of this Lodge might be less 
favorable. There is a membership of about 125 with an 
average of about five initiations a year. Several of our 
Lodges might well envy the position of this Lodge and 
your Committee submits that we would establish a very 
unwise precedent if we transferred additional territory to 
a Lodge to improve its material prosperity. 

Another reason advanced for the favorable considera- 
tion of this petition is that White River, Chapleau and 
Cartier are railway divisional centres and many of the ap- 
plicants for Masonic membership are in the railway service 
and these applicants desire to continue in their Lodge the 
associations formed in their daily vocation. 

Your Committee submits that there have been many 
requests for special consideration to change the jurisdiction 
between Lodges. These requests, like this one, have some 
special merit and if we were to grant this many others 
must be favorably considered. This would only lead _ to 
difficulty and confusion in our administration. Jurisdiction 
has always been a source of differences and friction be- 
tween our Lodges and to minimize this difficulty we must 
adhere strictly to the Constitution and our regulations. 

Our Grand Masters have always been sympathetic to 
a special dispensation where it was felt a strict interpreta- 
tion of our regulations might be unfair to the applicant 
and our present Grand Master has permitted a resident of 
White River to be initiated into .the Lodge at Chapleau. 
This procedure may be followed in the future. 

Your Committee is always reluctant to refuse these 
requests from our Lodges but, in this case, in the interest 
of the Craft as a whole, we feel that this petition should be 
declined and we so recommend. 

Fraternally submitted, 

R. B. DARGAVEL, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
WARRANTS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. B. F. 
Nott, Chairman, and on a motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Nott, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the 'Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A. M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Board of General Purposes, through your Com- 
mittee on Warrants, consisting of R.W. Bro. B. F. Nott 
(Chairman), M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, R.W. Bros. E. G. Dixon, 
S. W. Vogan, E. G. Gawley, A. B. Clinton and W. G. Bunker, 
beg to report as follows: 

Since our last Communication, our Grand Lodge in 
general and this Committee on Warrants in particular have 
suffered a severe loss in the passing of R.W. Bro. J. H. 
Blowes, Port Elgin, late District Deputy Grand Master of 
Bruce District, who was called "to lay aside his implements 
of labor" just ten days after he had returned home from 
Grand Lodge. He was killed in an accident at the plant 
where he was foreman and he had looked forward with 
anticipation to the performance of his duties for the coming 
year. "He passed over and all the trumpets sounded for 
him on the other side." 

The Most Worshipful the Grand Master appointed 
R.W. Bro. S. W. Vogan, of Walkerton, as his representative 
for the unexpired term and also to serve on this Committee. 

Applications for Warrants for Temple Lodge, U.D., 
Ottawa, instituted on October 27th, 1950, by R.W. Bro. 
Merrill J. Haggins, D.D.G.M.; Temple Lodge, U.D., Belle- 
ville, instituted on January 1st, 1951, by R.W. Bro. Arnold 
V. Gaebel, D.D.G.M., and Composite Lodge, U.D., Hamilton, 
instituted on February 21st, 1951, by R.W. Bro. Ernest G. 
Gawley, D.D.G.M., have been received and are in order. 
We have examined the petitions, books and records and are 
pleased to recommend: 

1. That warrants be issued to Temple Lodge, Ottawa, 
to be numbered 665 on the Register of Grand Lodge and 
to be placed in Ottawa District; to Temple Lodge, Belle- 
ville, to be numbered 666 on the Register of Grand Lodge 
and to be placed in Prince Edward District, and to Com- 
posite Lodge, Hamilton, to be numbered 667 on the Register 
of Grand Lodge and to be placed in Hamilton "B" District. 



168 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

2. In conformity with the suggestions of this Com- 
mittee during the past several years, your Committee would 
recommend that, in recording the minutes, the secretary of 
each lodge leave a substantial margin in which topical notes 
can be entered, should space the sectional items on the 
agenda and commence the minutes of each meeting on a 
new page. 

3. Your Committee also suggests to the new lodges 
that copies of the Lodge Summonses should be kept in 
bound form in order that their contents could be preserved 
not only as records but also for interesting information and 
future reference. These summonses carry very valuable 
datae relating to the lodge's activities, more than appears 
in the recorded minutes. 

4. Your Committee would also suggest that these new 
lodges appoint a well-qualified brother to record the his- 
tory of the lodge each year, such record to be appended to 
the lodge minutes. This practice we consider commendable 
and we would be pleased to find it made universal. 

5. As a further recommendation your Committee 
would urge the secretaries and the officers of the lodges 
to study the Constitution, Rulings and Regulations of 
Grand Lodge and the By-laws of their own lodge. 

We desire to commend these lodges in their anxiety 
for well-kept books and excellent records and extend to 
their officers and members our very best wishes for a 
happy, prosperous and successful future. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

B. F. NOTT, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
AUDIT AND FINANCE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. R. C. 
Berkinshaw, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Berkinshaw, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A. M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The reports of the Grand Treasurer, the Grand Secre- 
tary and the Auditor for the year ended 31st May 1951, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 169 

as previously submitted at this Annual Communication, 
have been reviewed by the members of the Committee on 
Audit and Finance. In their opinion, these reports present 
adequate details of all receipts and disbursements during 
the year under review in respect of the General Fund, 
Combined Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds, The Food 
Parcels for Britain Fund and the Manitoba Flood Relief 
Fund. 

The Auditor's Report sets out the schedules of invest- 
ments in respect of the first three mentioned funds and the 
transactions which have taken place in the investment ac- 
count in the past twelve months. The par value of these 
investments amounts to $1,065,004.65, which is approximate- 
ly the same figure as reported last year. 

The above mentioned investments, together with the 
cash on hand and in the Bank, add up to $1,131,564.66, or 
$13,378.74 in excess of last year's figures. Thus, the reports 
as submitted, show a continued improvement in the financial 
condition of Grand Lodge accounts. They further indicate 
that all expenses have been conscientiously controlled and 
generally kept in line with the budget which was submitted 
to and approved by Grand Lodge at its meeting in July, 
1950. 

Benevolent grants amounted to $90,711.00, of which 
$76,785.00 was paid out of the General Fund and $13,926.00 
out of the Memorial Fund, which represents an increase of 
$4,632.00 over similar grants made during the previous 
year for the financial assistance and the support of our 
Brethren who have been overtaken by illness or misfortune 
or of their dependents and of the widows and orphans of 
deceased Brethren. The total amount of these grants for 
the year under review is the highest reached in the past 
ten years but is some $28,000.00 under the peak year of 
1934-5. 

The demands on Grand Lodge for such financial assist- 
ance are still on the increase both in numbers and amounts, 
but since the case of each individual is thoroughly and care- 
fully investigated, considered and dealt with by the Com- 
mittee on Benevolence and by M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel, 
the Supervisor, in whose judgment and understanding the 
members can place the utmost confidence, we can be entirely 
satisfied that the funds so appropriated are impartially, 
fairly and justly applied. The Chairman and members of 
the Committee on Benevolence, especially M.W. Bro. R. B. 
Dargavel, are again entitled to our commendation for the 
time and thought and the consideration which is given to 
this important work. It is impossible to adequately recog- 
nize, on a financial basis, the value of the work done by 
our Supervisor of Benevolence, but as an indication of our 
appreciation of his valuable services, your Committee again 



170 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

recommends, as in the past two years, that a bonus of 
$1,000.00 be paid to him and an item of this amount is 
included in the estimate of Income and Expenditures for 
the current year. 

Your Committee recommends the endorsement of the 
two special donations made by Grand Lodge during the 
past year, namely, $500.00 to the Ontario Boy Scouts Asso- 
ciation and $2,000.00 to the Canadian Red Cross Society, 
both of which were referred to the Grand Treasurer, as 
well as the Chairman of this Committee at the time they 
were made. These causes are worthy of Grand Lodge sup- 
port. It is, however, suggested that this Grand Lodge 
reaffirm the policy that any specfal donations for such or 
similar purposes should be confined to undertakings which 
are of a national or at least a province-wide character or 
application. 

The Auditor's Report sets out a statement of gross 
receipts for the Manitoba Flood Relief Fund and the dis- 
position of the same. This statement shows that total con- 
tributions received from the Lodges in this Jurisdiction 
to the 31st of May, 1951, and bank interest thereon, amount- 
ed to $17,722.90, which has all been paid over to the Grand 
Lodge of Manitoba, thus closing the fund. The Brethren 
will, however, recall the fact that in addition to the amount 
just mentioned, a donation of $5,000.00 was forwarded last 
year to the Grand Lodge of Manitoba and paid out of our 
General Fund. Also, as stated in the Grand Treasurer's 
Report, some victims of the flood who are our own mem- 
bers were assisted to the extent of $2,500.00, 

The Auditor's Report also contains a final statement of 
the gross receipts for the Food Parcels for Britain Fund 
and the disposition of same. This statement shows total 
receipts of $247,540.97, all of which have now been dis- 
tributed. As has been previously stated, all administration 
costs, printing, postage, etc., were borne by Grand Lodge. 

Fidelity Bonds in the custody of The Canada Permanent 
Trust Company are currently in effect in respect to the 
Grand Treasurer and the Grand Secretary to the extent of 
$10,000.00 each and $5,000.00 on the Assistant to the Grand 
Secretary. These amounts appear to be adequate and no 
change is recommended. A messenger Robbery Policy, in 
the amount of $5,000.00 continues in force. 

Your Committee records its appreciation of the co- 
operation extended to it by the Grand Treasurer, the Grand 
Secretary and the Auditor in making available to it all 
information required for submission of this report. These 
officers are to be commended for the conscientious and 
faithful performance of their respective duties. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 171 

The work in the Grand Secretary's office continues to 
expand as the membership in this Jurisdiction has increased, 
yet the additional burden has been cheerfully assumed by 
the Grand Secretary, R.W. Br.o. Ewart G. Dixon, and the 
members of his capable staff. In recognition of the loyal 
and efficient service so rendered and in compensation, in 
part, for the marked increase in the cost of living' which 
has occurred during the past twelve months, your Com- 
mittee recommends to the favourable considerable of Grand 
Lodge the increases, effective June 1, 1951, in certain sal- 
aries and the cost-of-living bonus indicated in the estimate 
of Income and Expenditures under the General Fund for 
the current year ending on May 31, 1952, which we now 
submit:

It is noted that in the past three years the rate of 
increase in our expenditures considerably exceeds that of 
our income in spite of the increased membership, but if 
the actual income for the current year is approximately as 
estimated and the same careful control of expenditures is 
exercised as in past years, the results which will be pre- 
sented a year from now should show some further though 
slight improvement in the present strong financial position 
of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 173 

This Committee formally recommends to Grand Lodge 
the adoption of the Grand Treasurer's, the Auditor's and 
the Grand Secretary's reports. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

R. C. BERKINSHAW, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BENEVOLENCE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. A. 
Hearn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Hearn, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Benevolence submits for your ap- 
proval, a summary of our activities for the fiscal period 
ending May 31st, 1951, and a recommended projection for 
the ensuing year. 

One year ago we submitted an estimate of the fiscal 
requirements for the Committee at $91,000 — this budget 
was almost entirely expended as the following figures will 
indicate: 

Benevolence expended for the year ending May 31, 
1951, was as follows: 

Grants from General Fund $ 76,785. 

Grants from interest from combined 

Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds 13,926. 



Total grants from Grand Lodge Funds $ 90,711. 

This amount disbursed for benevolence by Grand Lodge 
is over and above any benevolence by constituent lodges; if 
an accurate report were available from all lodges it would 
probably be an additional $75,000 to $100,000. 

Your Committee has examined and approved disburse- 
ments from the Special Emergency Fund. In the light of 
our experience over the past two years, we are asking that 
you approve increasing this fund to $4,000 to be disbursed 
by the Supervisor in cases of special emergency. 

Your Committee recommends that the subscription to 
the Masonic Relief Association of the United States and 
Canada be continued. 



174 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The year just closed has been a busy one for our 
Supervisor, Most Wor. Bro. R. B. Dargavel. Despite a 
slight physical setback for a short period early last winter 
he has continued to work unceasingly in the interests of 
widows, dependents and brethren of this Grand Lodge. 
Down through the years many a heavy heart has been made 
lighter, many young folk have seen a new dawn of greater 
opportunities by being enabled to continue on to a higher 
education, thus becoming a useful and enlightened citizen 
of Canada. These highlights of our benevolence can be 
traced to the wisdom, guidance and understanding of our 
Supervisor, Most Wor. Bro. R. B. Dargavel. 

It may surprise the brethren and be of interest to them 
that the influence of this Grand Lodge through its benev- 
olent activities, extends far beyond the borders of this 
jurisdiction. There are dependents on our roll from most 
of the provinces of the Dominion, and from Honolulu to 
England and Scotland, and in many of the states of the 
United States of America. 

The activities of your Committee on Benevolence have 
been ably assisted by the various Boards of Relief of 
United States and Canada, ten of them being located within 
this jurisdiction at Guelph, Hamilton, Kingston, London, 
Ottawa, Peterborough, Stratford, Toronto, Windsor and 
Woodstock. Very little publicity is given to their endeav- 
ours but those of us who are close to their operations, know 
something of their humanitarian work. 

To give you some idea of the type of Masonic service 
that some of these boards perform, I would like to quote 
verbatim from a report issued a few months ago by the 
Toronto Board, now known as the Masonic Service Guild: 

"A long telegram was delivered to our office by the 
Canadian National Telegraphs addressed only to the 'W.M. 
— .Masonic Lodge — Toronto.' The Telegraph Company was 
at a loss to know to whom this message should be delivered, 
but seeing the title 'Masonic Service Guild' in the telephone 
book, decided they were the best chance. The wire was from 
the Secretary of Morning Star Lodge, Beloit, Wisconsin, 
and advised us of the sudden death of one of their members 
and said they were informed that his only sister lived in 
Toronto and had worked as secretary to a Toronto Dental 
Surgeon. They asked us to try and locate this young lady 
if possible and give her the sad news. You will all appre- 
ciate that this was a poser — to locate one of all the Dentists 
and dental secretaries in Toronto seemed a hopeless task. 
However, our worthy secretary was equal to the occasion. 
He got busy on the phone and in less than one hour had 
located the young lady, still a dental secretary in an office 
near Yonge and Bloor Streets, and in two hours time con- 
tact was made between the Secretary of the Lodge and the 
young lady in question. This, I think you will agree, is 
real Masonic Service." 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 175 

At a recent meeting of your Committee we examined 
in detail 401 applications of which 81 are new. This is 
almost identical in number with that of the previous year 
but it would appear from a close analysis that grants of 
yesterday have little relation with the needs of to-day, in 
the light of money values; hence our grants have to be 
increased. 

After careful consideration of each case and some pend- 
ing further investigation, your Committee is asking Grand 
Lodge to approve the following appropriation for the period 
ending May 31st, 1952: 

From the General Fund „ $ 80,000 

From interest from Memorial and Semi- 
centennial Funds _ 14,000 



Total from Grand Lodge Funds $ 94,000 

I mentioned a moment ago that your Committee had to 
raise their sights with regard to benevolent grants due to 
increased cost of living. I respectfully suggest to the 
Worshipful Masters and to Chairmen of Benevolent Com- 
mittees in contituent lodges that you review your partici- 
pation in benevolent grants. 

When our present Grand Master was Chairman of the 
Committee on Benevolence, he suggested to the brethren in 
one of his reports that in making their will they keep in 
mind the Benevolent Committee of Grand Lodge, as a par- 
tial beneficiary. 

I am now able to report to you that within the last few 
days a cheque for $500.00 has been received from the exec- 
utor of the late Miss Jane Hanton, of Hamilton. It is 
thankfully received and will be faithfully applied. 

The proper functioning of your Committee has been 
greatly facilitated by the splendid co-operation of the Grand 
Secretary's office. Our special thanks to Miss Gardner for 
her untiring efforts. 

As Chairman I tender my sincere thanks to the Mem- 
bers of the Committee; their attendance at our preliminary 
meeting July 6th and 7th was an inspiration. Their inter- 
est and discussion laid sound plans for the coming Ma- 
sonic year. 

And now brethren, this completes the report of your 
Committee on Benevolence for another year. I hope you 
will find it useful and informative. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

J. A. HEARN, 

Chairman.

REPORT ON FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 

M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, Chairman, presented 
this report and read the Foreword to the Reviews. 
The Deputy Grand Master then moved, seconded 
by M.W. Bro. Copus, that the report be received 
and adopted. The motion was carried. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
MASONIC EDUCATION 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro, Martyn, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Masonic Education, composed of 
M.W. Bros. W. J. Dunlop, J. A. McRae, R.W. Bros. N. C. 
Hart, E. G. Dixon, W. L. Wright, J. B. Smith, H. S. John- 
ston, A. L. Bennett, G. S. Scovell, B. B. Foster, W. G. 
Kitchen, W. K. Bailey, A. R. Scott, H. S. Ewing, M. D. 
Morrison, V.W. Bro. B. S. Edmondson, and R.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Chairman, beg to present their report to the Nine- 
ty-sixth Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge. 

During the year seven general communications were 
sent from the Committee to the various Districts in the 
Province. The first two had to do witn the organization 
of the work for the year and some suggestions of plans 
that had been tried in other areas with some measure of 
success. The Committee is indebted to the Deputy Grand 
Master for sending along one of these that had been used 
in one of the lodges in the London District. 

In April and May the forms for the lodge reports to 
the D.D.G.M. and the district report from the D.D.G.M. to 
the Committee were sent out. It is very encouraging to 
find that 409 of the 577 Lodges have submitted a report 
on their activities in the field of Masonic Education. There 
were five Districts that did not submit reports up to the 
time of the preparation of this report. This represents 69 
Lodges and it might be fair to assume that some worth- 
while work was accomplished in these lodges just as it 
was in the 409 listed above. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 177 

At three different times, a "Syllabus of Instruction" 
for a three-month period was prepared and distributed to 
the lodges through the Grand Secretary's office. These 
are mailed directly to the Lodges. Each syllabus is num- 
bered and up to the present five have been issued in the 
last two years. The Committee desires to thank R.W. Bro. 
W. K. Bailey, the D.D.G.M. of Toronto District "B", for 
preparing Syllabus 4 and R.W. Bro. A. C. Dickson, a 
P.D.D.G.M. of Toronto District "D", for preparing Syllabus 
5. The Committee has evidence of a satisfactory presenta- 
tion of questions on these printed forms in the form of a 
panel discussion in a short period at the lodge meeting. 
Those who have prepared some of them have left copies 
with your Chairman and he has some of the suitable ones 
reproduced. Any interested brother may have a copy on 
loan if he wishes to use the idea in his group. 

Some comment has been made on the use of the book- 
lets that were prepared for the use of the candidates as 
they progressed through their degrees. A short explanation 
may clear up some vague ideas as to the way they were 
intended to be used. The booklet was printed in September, 
1948, and at the time it was intended to have it loaned to 
the candidate and then returned to the secretary of the 
lodge as soon as he had received his next higher degree. 
Accordingly inside the front cover was printed "This book- 
let is the property of _ Lodge, No 

G.R.C." In December of that year it was deemed advisable 
to allow the lodges to present these booklets to their can- 
didates if they so desired. This information was embodied 
in the report of the Committee on Masonic Education of 
1949 in these words: "The Committee on Masonic Educa- 
tion believes that each Lodge should be permitted to present 
these booklets to all candidates. The expenditure of twenty- 
eight cents per member would be an excellent investment, 
paying dividends in increased interest and attendance." The 
adoption of that report by Grand Lodge would be sufficient 
authority for the Lodges to present these books to their 
candidates if they so desired. 

Your Committee feel that much has been accomplished 
in the field of Masonic Education in the Masonic year just 
closed. We realize that in this field of Education just as 
in any other that progress can be likened to the progress 
of a car along a super highway. The highway may have 
several lanes or it may be narrow just as our views of 
Masonic Education may be broad or they may be very nar- 
row. They could be so narrow that progress is practically 
nil. Our car will go far if we keep it in good working 
order — if we continue to put in the fuel to supply the 
energy — if we keep it well lubricated to avoid friction that 
might cause moving parts to burn out. The Brethren in 
the various lodges are the moving parts of these mythical 



178 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

cars and they are doing good work in many districts. Un- 
fortunately some of these cars are stalled along the high- 
way with the spark plugs either worn out or burnt out or 
maybe the plug is just missing. The point that the Com- 
mittee would like to make is that progress will only be 
made by those who are ready to work and to keep on work- 
ing. Probably the greatest thing that they can do for 
their lodges would be to see that the young members are 
being trained to take their share when their day comes. 

The following figures come from reports sent in by 
the District Deputy Grand Masters: 

The number of Districts that forwarded reports 30 

The number who have a Supervisor of M. Education 23 

The number of Masonic Education Committees 12 

The number of Past Masters' Associations '.. 26 

The number of District Meetings on M. Education 43 

Attendance at District Meetings ... 4,292 

The number of District Divine Services — 36 

Attendance ~ — 6,403 

Number of meetings with some Masonic Education 1,677 

Attendance at the above meetings „._ _ 83,469 

Lodge meetings devoted entirely to M. Education 144 

Attendance at the above meetings _ - 6,062 

The number of lodges which used the bulletins 380 

Visits of Lodges in their own District - _ 784 

Visits of Lodges to other Districts — 202 

Visits made to other Grand Jurisdictions 66 

Visits made by Lodges from other Grand Jurisdictions 67 

Members who took part in M. E. Programme 1,444 

The above figures represent an improvement over last 
year in nearly all items. It is encouraging to know that 
such a large number of lodges have submitted reports this 
year. 

In conclusion, the Committee wish to thank all those 
who had a hand in making these results possible. We would 
include here the District Deputy Grand Masters who fea- 
tured the importance of Masonic Education in their Dis- 
tricts. Also we include the Supervisors and the Chairmen 
of the Lodge Committees. We wish also to register our 
appreciation to the Grand Secretary for his kindness in 
mailing out the copies of the Syllabus of Instruction on 
the three separate occasions that they were sent to the 
Lodges. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

HARRY L. MARTYN, 

Chairman. 






TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 179 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
CONDITION OF MASONRY 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. C. M. 
Pitts, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Pitts, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Membei-s of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is a pleasure to repoi^t that, though many parts of 
the world have been sorely distressed by the events of the 
past year, in our country and in this Jurisdiction there has 
been peace and a continuance of the upward trend in mem- 
bership, finances and enthusiasm. 

The Craft was never in a healthier condition in Ontario. 
Many of our lodges are purchasing premises of their own, 
building new temples, renovating old quarters, and instal- 
ling much-needed facilities. A great number of lodges 
have increased initiation fees and dues as well as schedules 
for life membership fees. There are now 577 warranted 
lodges and four under dispensation, a total of 581. The 
newest Lodge is Atikokan Lodge at Atikokan. Our mem- 
bership at June 30th, 1951, should exceed 123,000, according 
to our Grand Secretary. 

The reports of the District Deputy Grand Masters re- 
flect the sound condition of Freemasonry throughout the 
thirty-five Districts and their constituent Lodges. In all 
reports received, thanks is expressed for the honour and 
privilege of serving the Craft, and tribute is paid to the 
assistance rendered by the District Secretaries, Chaplains 
and Supervisors of Masonic Education, as well as warm 
appreciation of the uniformly cordial and gracious recep- 
tions tendered by the Masters, Officers and members of 
the Lodges in all official and unofficial visitations. 

There is high commendation expressed at the excellent 
ritualistic work being performed throughout the Jurisdic- 
tion, the orderly and efficient manner in which lodge rec- 
ords and accounts were being kept, and the increased inter- 
est and attendance at lodge meetings, with a steady flow 
of splendid candidates continuing to come forward to benefit 
themselves and the Craft, with their enthusiasm and earnest 
desire to contribute their talents to the advancement of the 
Order and closer association with their brethren. Attention 
has been drawn in many reports to the initiation of sons 



180 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and other relatives of prominent members of the Craft and 
of the success which has attended the utilization of the 
younger members in degree work and other lodge business, 
thereby sustaining their active interest to the betterment 
of the fraternal spirit in the lodge. Some of the Deputies 
are concerned by the fact that much conferring of degrees 
lessens the opportunities for promoting a programme of 
Masonic Education, although all are interested in making 
the membership better Masons. One report suggests that 
the District Supervisors of Masonic Education should be 
appointed by the Chairman of the Committee on Masonic 
Education of Grand Lodge and that they should be respon- 
sible and report to him directly so that there would be a 
uniform approach and an improved interesting presentation 
and impact of the Education programme throughout the 
Jurisdiction. Weaknesses in method and individual material 
could be checked and results more accurately computed. 

Many appreciative comments have been made about the 
work of the Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic Education, 
and thanks expressed for the assistance rendered to the 
local committees. 

It was a great sorrow to learn of the tragic death of 
the District Deputy for St. Thomas District, Rt. Wor. Bro. 
R. L. Hartsell, who passed away from a heart attack on 
the eve of his last official visit. His term was completed 
by Rt. Wor. Bro. J. R. Bandeen, who reported the year's 
work most satisfactorily. This District also suffered the 
loss by fire of one of its finest Masonic Temples situated 
in the City of St. Thomas, but the reports show the breth- 
ren are intent on a rebuilding programme. Kenora also 
lost its Temple in a disastrous fire which destroyed most 
of the lodge records and furniture with the building. Sev- 
eral of the Deputies report that they have carefully checked 
the insurance carried by the Lodges in their Districts urg- 
ing adequate protection against possible loss. Lodge 
finances would appear to be improving, and revisions of 
fees, dues and life membership fees are being adapted in 
order to meet the general increased costs. 

During the year, many of the stalwarts of the Craft 
have passed on to the Grand Lodge Above, leaving behind 
them a wonderful record of faithful service to their fam- 
ilies, their Church, their community and to Freemasonry. 
Their memories will be cherished by the brethren and will 
be recorded elsewhere in our proceedings. We extend to 
their loved ones our fraternal sympathy. 

It is interesting to note on what frequent occasions 
mention is made of the intervisitation of District Deputies 
to neighboring Districts at the time of the official visita- 
tion and the evident pleasure and profit reported to have 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 181 

been derived therefrom. This surely is going the "second 
mile." 

From two of the Toronto Districts comes the suggestion 
that the time is opportune for the appointment of a Com- 
mittee to consider and report on the possibility of redivid- 
ing the present four into five more evenly distributed 
Toronto Districts, which would permit each D.D.G.M. 
greater opportunity to fraternize with the brethren and 
Lodges, and also would allow for expansion of these Dis- 
tricts in future owing to the rapid development of the City 
in its suburban areas. 

Many Districts record enthusiastically the happy recur- 
rence of international visitations between Lodges, as well 
as the interchange of visits between Lodges within and 
outside their own Districts and from neighbouring Canadian 
Jurisdictions. Such fellowship would appear to be definite- 
ly on the increase and to have splendid results in better 
fraternal understanding and regard. 

The usefulness of the Masters' and Wardens' Association 
is being recognized throughout the Jurisdiction and more 
Districts are organizing these Associations with consequent 
benefits from closer personal contacts and better under- 
standing of mutual problems and the means of solving them. 

The Grand Master's visits throughout the Jurisdiction 
have been greatly appreciated and his messages of encour- 
agement and his presentation of the aims and purposes of 
the Fraternity have done much to contribute to the well- 
being of the Craft. The informality of his visits in Temis- 
kaming District was most especially appreciated by the 
brethren, many of whom travelled long distances to hear 
his addresses and to meet him. His consideration in holding 
early meetings and his delightful personality endeared him 
to all. 

He has been ably assisted in his visits by the Grand 
Secretary and other members of Grand Lodge. The Deputy 
Grand Master and M. Wor. Bro. Dunlop have done a great 
deal to lighten the task of the Grand Master by taking the 
responsibility of the dedication of new lodge premises and 
speaking on special occasions throughout the Province. 

Blood Donors Services in Windsor, Hamilton, Toronto, 
Ottawa and Nipissing West Districts have been of great 
blessing. The demands are ever increasing and the grati- 
tude of those who have benefited has been as of those who 
have received the gift of new life. 

The spirit of Benevolence is strong among the Lodges. 
When need arises it is usually something which requires 
more financial assistance than in former days, for in this 



182 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

as in all other departments of life, the high cost of living 
is evident. The Brethren are aware of these increased 
necessities and meet the demands with effectiveness, assured 
of the support of the Grand Lodge Committee of Benev- 
olence which continues to perform such a magnificent ser- 
vice to the Craft under the Chairmanship of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
J. A. Hearn and under the supervision of Most Wor. Bro. 
R. B. Dargavel, whose devotion to this department of 
Masonic endeavour, as in all other activities of the Craft, 
is a glowing example and inspiration. 

It would appear that this year has marked a consider- 
able increase in both District and local Lodge Divine Ser- 
vices, which have been exceedingly well attended. It should 
be remembered that these annual occasions provide the 
brethren with the opportunity of fulfilling their need of 
worshiping God together, regardless of their individual de- 
nomination affiliations. The overflowing attendance gives 
public evidence of the fact that Masonry is the "handmaid 
of religion" but is not a religion in itself. Criticism of 
Masonry has frequently been directed by religious denom- 
inations which evidently resent the influence of our Fra- 
ternity, in company, with other social and service organiza- 
tions which capture the enthusiasm and loyal personal 
service and support of individual members of their religious 
faiths or communions. Masonry, in particular, does not 
interfere with a man's civil, moral or religious duties. 
While strengthening the moral resolution and perfecting 
the social relationships of its members, Masonry seeks only 
to lift the horizon of man's awareness of his brotherhood 
with his fellows and of his sonship with the Father-Lord, 
the Great Architect of the Universe. In order that our 
Craft may outlive, out-serve and risfute the age-old criti- 
cisms of those who fail to understand her high purposes, 
each brother must so order his life and conduct, before 
God, in worship and in service in the sanctuary of his re- 
ligious faith, and before his fellow men in helpfulness, and 
sacrificial service, that no reproach may fall upon our 
Order, so that its unpublicized works of mercy and charity, 
and its beautiful ceremonies and rituals intended to help 
and strengthen, may never be judged as simply for the 
glorification of self, as pagan or heretical. 

Masonry is fundamentally the search for "Light", — for 
"Truth", to be found in its full perfection in the Time and 
Living God Most High. 

"For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall 
we see Sight." (Ps. 36-9.) 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 183 

"Because of life the fountain pure 
Remains above with Thee; 
And in that purest light of Thine 

We clearly light shall see. 
Thy loving-kindness unto them 

Continue that Thee know; 
And still on men upright in heart 
Thy righteousness bestow." 

(M.V.) 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. R. W. 
Treleaven, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Treleaven, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario: 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee begs to report as follows: 



1. RE ACACIA LODGE, NO. 61, VERSUS DONALD 
McLEAN. 

The facts in this case are set out in the Report of this 
Committee adopted by Grand Lodge in 1950. The charge 
had been laid in Acacia Lodge, No. 61, against Bro. Donald 
McLean, that he did on the 2nd of April, 1947, plead guilty 
to being an accessory after the fact to murder, and 
as a consequence of that plea was sentenced to 
serve five years in the penitentiary. Last year this Grand 
Lodge accepted the Report of this Committee concurring 
in the finding of guilt by the Special Committee appointed 
by the Grand Master, and recommended that he be notified 
to appear at this Communication of Grand Lodge to show 
cause why he should not be expelled. Brother McLean 
has not so appeared and your Committee now recommends 
that he be expelled. 



is4 gkand lodge or Canada annual communication 

2. RE BURLINGTON LODGE, NO. 165, VERSUS BRO. 
WILLIAM ALEXANDER WALKER. 

The facts of this case are set out in Reports of this 
Committee in the years 1943 and 1945. Bro. Walker was 
expelled by Grand Lodge in 1945. At the Communication 
of Grand Lodge in 1949 Bro. Walker petitioned to be re- 
instated. Grand Lodge at that time, and again in 1950, 
adopted recommendation of this Committee that action on 
his petition be deferred for one year. Your Committee 
recommends that he now be restored to membership. 

3. RE FARRAN'S POINT LODGE, NO. 256, VERSUS 
V.W. BRO. CHARLES McCONNELL. 

This was a charge laid in Farran's Point Lodge, No. 
256, against V.W. Bro. Charles McConnell of a Masonic 
offence, the said offence consisting of the misappropriation 
of lodge funds to the amount of $675.05 as shown by the 
auditor's report. The charge was duly accepted by the 
Lodge and after due notice to V.W. Bro. McConnell he was 
tried by the Lodge and by a unanimous ballot was found 
guilty, and he was indefinitely suspended by the Lodge. 
Your Committee concurs in the finding of guilt and rec- 
ommends that V.W. Bro. McConnell be notified to appear 
at the next Communication of Grand Lodge to show cause 
why he should not be expelled, and that in the meantime 
he stands suspended. 

4. REMEMBRANCE LODGE, NO. 586, VERSUS BRO. 
CECIL SAMUEL GLENCROSS. 

This was a charge of unmasonic conduct laid in Re- 
membrance Lodge, No. 586, against Bro. Cecil Samuel Glen- 
cross. The charge of unmasonic conduct was as follows: 
That he did steal a number of postal letters containing 
money or chattels, the property of the Postmaster-General 
of Canada, for which he had been sentenced to the term of 
one year in jail. The charge was accepted by the Lodge 
and after due notice to Bro. Glencross the charge proceeded 
to trial and he was found guilty by the Lodge and he was 
suspended by the Lodge, and the matter was referred by 
the Lodge to this Committee for further consideration. Your 
Committee concurs in the finding of guilt and recommends 
that Bro. Glencross be notified to appear at the next Com- 
munication of Grand Lodge to show cause why he should 
not be expelled, and that in the meantime he stands sus- 
pended. 

5. DELAWARE VALLEY LODGE, NO. 358, VERSUS 
BRO. GORDON CANT. 

At the regular meeting of Delaware Valley Lodge, No. 
358, Bro. Gordon Cant was suspended indefinitely. No 



TOr.ONTO, OKTARIO, 1951 185 

charge was formally laid against him, nor was any regular 
trial held. A complaint had been made that Bro. Cant had 
been guilty of unmasonic conduct and the Worshipful Mas- 
ter and a delegation of Past Masters approached Bro. Cant 
and after discussion of the complaint with him he signed 
a statement admitting his guilt of unmasonic conduct and 
that he had been named co-respondent in a divorce case. 
The Lodge accepted this as a confession and as a plea of 
guilt under Rule 31, and suspended Bro. Cant indefinitely. 
Your Committee commends Delaware Valley Lodge for the 
laudable effort made by its officers and members to purge 
its membership of a member deemed guilty of unmasonic 
conduct. Unfortunately, however, the procedure followed 
was not the procedure laid down by the Constitution. For 
this reason your Committee cannot concur in the action of 
the Lodge. Nevertheless in view of the signed confession 
your Committee recommends that Bro. Cant be notified to 
appear at the next Communication of Grand Lodge to show 
cause why he should nut be expelled, and in the meantime 
he stands suspended. 



6. MAPLE LEAF LODGE, NO. 600, VERSUS W. BRO. 
W. R. LAUGHLEN. 

This is a charge of unmasonic conduct laid against 
W. Bro. Laugblen. The charge was accepted by the Lodge, 
and the Lodge requested the Grand Master to appoint a 
Commission to try the charge. This the Grand Master was 
pleased to do, and he appointed R.W. Bro. J. R. Rumball as 
Chairman, R.W. Bro. George J. Hinton and W. Bro. Alex. 
Bissett the Commission to hear and determine the charge. 
W. Bro. Laughlen had been sued by his wife for a divorce, 
and the divorce had been granted after a trial in the Civil 
Courts. The Commission investigated the charge and the 
reasons given in a very full and complete report, found 
W. Bro. Laughlen guilty of unmasonic conduct and rec- 
ommended his indefinite suspension. Upon receipt of this 
Report and recommendation, the Grand Master suspended 
W. Bro. Laughlen until this meeting of Grand Lodge. Your 
Committee concurs in the finding of guilt and recommends 
that W. Bro. Laughlen be notified to appear at the next 
Communication of Grand Lodge to show cause why he 
should not be expelled, and that in the meantime he stands 
suspended. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

R. W. TRELEAVEN, 

Chairman. 



186 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE GRAND LODGE BULLETIN 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. E. A. 
Miller, Editor, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Miller, it was re- 
ceived and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I beg leave to present the seventh Annual Report in 
reference to the publication of the Grand Lodge Bulletin. 

It has been possible to publish during the Masonic year 
of 1950-1951 four issues of the Bulletin in the months of 
September, November, February and April. A policy 
similar to that of the preceding year has been followed 
in connection with each issue. The first two have been 
confined generally to addresses delivered at and matters 
pertaining to the Annual Communication of last year. The 
last two have been given over to excerpts from articles 
obtained from various sources and a limited number and 
variety of news items.. 

The Editor regrets the fact that he has not received 
the same large number of general news items from Con- 
stituent Lodges and individual members of the Craft.. While 
he may have his own opinion in regard to the main reason 
for the paucity of contributions received in comparison 
with the situation as it has obtained in other years, never- 
theless he feels that the value of the Bulletin for many 
readers is dependent upon such informational items. He 
would deign to suggest that in the interests of the Bulletin 
there be a return to the generous supply of factual infor- 
mation about events and historical data that may be avail- 
able in the Constituent Lodges. 

There is ample evidence to support the statement that 
the Bulletin is being read throughout the Grand Jurisdiction 
and elsewhere. Many are the brethren who have informed 
the Editor personally that they look forward to each issue 
and read it completely. Many messages have come through 
various media indicating that brethren who have moved to 
other Grand Jurisdictions appreciate the contact made pos- 
sible for them with things Masonic in this Grand Jurisdiction. 
The Librarian, R.W. Bro. A. E. MacGregor, reports that 
more than twenty-six members of Constituent Lodges have 
written to him for a list of books available in the Library 
as a result of the small paragraph inserted in the February 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1951 187 

issue of the Bulletin. He also states that all of these are 
new patrons and have indicated the paragraph mentioned 
above as being the reason for their writing. 

Consequently it is evident that there is a place for some 
such publication in the life and welfare of this Grand Juris- 
diction. It is suggested that further consideration by the 
Policy Committee be given to the content of the various 
issues and that space be made available in every issue for 
news items in the hope that there may be a renewal in 
interest on the part of contributors, who can furnish personal 
and historical data of interest. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

EVERTON A. MILLER, 

Editor.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. R. 
Rumball, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Rumball, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Library Committee, composed of M.W. Bro. J. A. 
McEae, R.W. Bros. John Ness, E. A. Miller, H. W. Taylor, 
W. K. Bailey, R. E. Baylis, M A. Searle and J. R. Rumball 
(Chairman), submits herewith its report to this 96th Annual 
Communication of Grand Lodge. 

Reference was made in the Report of this Committee 
a year ago to the retirement, due to ill health, of our 
former Librarian, Bro. N. W. J. Haydon. After having been 
confined to his home by physical infirmities for some 
months, he passed to the Grand Lodge Above on December 
32th, 1950. This Grand Lodge and a wide circle of Masonic 
friends and acquaintances, not only in this jurisdiction but 
elsewhere, have thus been bereft of one whose book lore 
and kindly advice were always available to the searcher 
after more light in Masonry, whether he happened to be 
the newest Entered Apprentice or the more advanced 
student of our Art. In addition to his Lodge and Chapter 
affiliations, the late Bro. Haydon was active in several 
Masonic research organizations, and, for some years, had 
been local Secretary for North America for the Quatuor 
Coronati Lodge, No. 2076, of London. 

Reference was also made in the same Report to the 
appointment of our present Librarian, R.W. Bro. Arthur E. 
MacGregor, and the prediction then made has been more 
than fulfilled. He has served to the entire satisfaction of 
this Committee, and has advanced the work and extended 
the influence of our Grand Lodge Library. 

It seems appropriate to your Committee to make men- 
tion at this time of the passing, in the last year or so, of 
two great Masonic writers, one American and the other 
English, namely, R.W. Bro. the Rev. Joseph Fort Newton 
and W. Bro. Douglas Knoop, M.A., of the University of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 191 

Sheffield. Newton's books, such as "The Builders" and 
"The Men's House", are known wherever Masonry is known. 
He wrote with the zeal and fervor of one proclaiming a 
world-wide message. Knoop's writings are particularly well 
known to those interested in Masonic history and research. 
In collaboration with his friends, Jones and Hamar, he pro- 
duced many valuable works such as "The Genesis of Free- 
masonry," "The Mediaeval Mason," "The Scottish Mason," 
and "The Mason Word." These two men were in the fore- 
most rank of writers on Masonic subjects, and their places 
should be filled. While there are more Masons in the world 
today than at any time in the past, it is doubtful if the 
number of Masonic writers of the calibre of those we have 
lost, is on the increase. The fields of Masonic symbolism 
and philosophy are unlimited. Is it unreasonable to hope 
that in the years just ahead more of our Canadian Brethren 
may become interested in Masonic writing and make contri- 
butions to our Masonic literature ? There may be another 
Newton or Knoop in this jurisdiction. Who knows ? 

The Grand Lodge Library at Toronto is now completing 
eighteen years of service to all parts of our jurisdiction 
and has shown consistent progress in each year of its 
existence. The past year has been no exception. Our 
records show an increase in the number of books issued 
to readers in the city, and mailed to brethren outside of 
Toronto, many of whom are new applicants. Our Librarian 
has had more requests, by mail, for books and information 
during the first three months of this year than for a similar 
period in several years. The number of brethren patron- 
izing the Reading Room is also increasing. Your Com- 
mittee has operated within its budget though considerable 
re-binding and repair work have been done and some new 
books purchased, the most instructive of which was "The 
Freemason's Guide and Compendium" by an eminent English 
Mason and scholar, Bernard Jones. Four copies of this 
valuable work were secured and these volumes have been 
in constant demand since they were acquired. The first 
editions are now out of print but the universal approbation 
and the demand for further copies of this outstanding work 
are a guarantee that further editions will be made avail- 
able in the near future. 

Our Librarian has now completed the re-arrangement 
of the books in the bookcases. A new book list is being 
prepared and will be available for distribution by September 
1st. Some volumes in the Reference Section, of which we 
have duplicates, have been loaned to several Lodges outside 
of Toronto on a long-term arrangement. This action has 

been much appreciated by the Lodges to which the sets 

have been sent. 



192 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Your Committee again acknowledges and appreciates 
the co-operation of the D.D.GjM.'s, the Masters and the 
Secretaries of the Lodges who have assisted to a large 
extent in reminding our Brethren, from time to time, of 
the resources of the Library. Our thanks are also tendered 
to R.W. Bro. Everton Miller, Editor of the Grand Lodge 
Bulletin, for the valuable publicity given to the Library in 
the short "commercials" in the various issues of that pub- 
lication. The Masonic Temple Corporation Limited has 
continued to extend, during the past year, the courtesies 
and co-operation which have been evidenced for many years 
and which are much appreciated by your Committee. 

In conclusion, and with the hope of creating further 
interest in the treasures of the Library, we quote the follow- 
ing from the writings of one of our leading Canadian 
statesmen: "This is an age of cinemas and sport. Those 
diversions on which our fathers thrived are not in general 
acceptance now. It is well to remember that there is no 
law of inevitable betterment applicable to our race. It 
should be our utmost endeavour to get the most out of 
our time, for the road downward is easier than the road 
upward. After all accumulations of wealth and harvests 
of science, good literature is still our finest possession, and 
reading is vastly the most profitable occupation of our 
leisure." 

To those who have not yet availed themselves of our 
services, our Librarian extends a cordial invitation to per- 
mit him to serve you; to those who have crossed our 
threshold once or many times, he says, "Will ye no' come 
back again?" 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

J. R. RUMBALL, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF POLICY COMMITTEE ON 
GRAND LODGE BULLETIN 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. Frank 
A. Copus, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. Copus, it 
was received and adopted.

Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Pi'ovince of Ontario. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 193 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Seven years ago publication of the Grand Lodge 
Bulletin was commenced as an experiment and it has been 
issued three or four times each year since. Your Com- 
mittee feels that the experiment has answered its purpose. 
From the many opinions that have been expressed to the 
Committee, we are confident that the Bulletin has enhanced 
the interest and enthusiasm of our members. We are sure 
that our brethren would like us to express our deep appre- 
ciation to the Editor, R.W. Bro. E. A. Miller, for his untiring 
efforts on their behalf. It has, however, been suggested 
to your Committee, and we believe that this suggestion 
represents a considerable body of opinion, that the Bulletin 
in its present form and size is not in keeping with the 
standing and importance of this Grand Lodge. With this 
suggestion your Committee agrees and we feel that the 
whole matter of a Grand Lodge publication should now be 
given further consideration. 

We recommend that a committee be appointed by the 
Grand Master to investigate the size, form, method of dis- 
tribution and editing. We further recommend that after 
the next issue of the Bulletin the publication be discontinued 
in its present form and that when this committee had made 
a thorough investigation and satisfactory report to the 
Grand Master he be empowered to direct the continuance 
of a publication in accordance with the recommendation of 
the committee. 

Fraternally submitted, 

FRANK A. COPUS, 

Chairman.

This total is somewhat less than a year ago, but we did 
not require any Master Masons Certificates this year, being 
the second year of the term of M.W. Bro. Maher. The 
number of pages in the Proceedings was reduced because 
of abridgment of the D.D.G.M. Reports. This also reduced 
the postage on same, a saving of over four hundred dollars. 
This saving was made as a result of a lot of hard work by 
our Grand Secretary in re-writing these reports. 

It is also a pleasure to again express our appreciation 
to the Chairmen of the various Committees in getting their 
reports in promptly. For some of the Chairmen this means 
a real effort owing to the information for these reports not 
being available until the last minute. Also we have had 
splendid co-operation from our printers, which means a 
great deal. 

We wish it were possible to find new words to express 
our thanks to our Grand Secretary and his staff. Only 
those who have occasion to trouble him frequently can 
appreciate his kindness and efficiency. Nothing is too much 
trouble for him if it is in the interest of Masonry, so we say 
to him "a million thanks." 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

H. S. JOHNSTON, 

Chairman. 



GRAND CHAPLAIN'S REPORT 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. G. S. 
Scovell, Grand Chaplain, and on motion of the Dep- 
uty Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Scovell, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 195 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

On this the Annual Communication, I wish to express 
my profound thanks and appreciation to Grand Lodge for 
electing me to this holy and highly esteemed office of Grand 
Chaplain. My one regret throughout the whole term of 
office has been my inability to accept all of the many and 
various invitations extended to me. But, being an active 
rector of a large City Church has, of necessity, demanded 
much of my time. However, I am pleased to report that I 
found time to attend many Masonic functions. I officiated 
at 33 Installation Services, besides District Meetings, Anni- 
versary Celebrations, Divine Services, Memorial Services 
and gave addresses at the banquet hour. The keeping of 
these engagements often meant many miles of travel. How- 
ever, I was well rewarded as all these pleasant duties 
afforded me an opportunity of enlarging my friendships 
and enriching my life. One cannot be in the company of 
men of the high character of those who are active in Free- 
masonry without feeling the warmth, sincerity and geniality 
of these brethren. Time and space will not permit me to 
mention or single out any individual member. They have 
all formed links in a mighty chain of friendship and fellow- 
ship which will ever bind us closer in our beloved fraternity. 

I cannot terminate my office as Grand Chaplain with- 
out a friendly and sincere comment on the need, as I see 
it, of making better Masons. From time to time one sees 
in the daily press and other publications articles condemning 
Masonry because of its pagan rites and ceremonies. Of 
course, the critics are not members of the Craft, but have 
learned of Masonry from the many periodicals and books 
which are available at our libraries and bookstores. How- 
ever, I feel that too many members consider Masonry only 
as a beautiful system of morality veiled in allegory ana 
illustrated by symbols, and never apply the teachings to 
themselves. They are satisfied to be speculative Masons, 
but never operative in the sense that they apply these teach- 
ings to the betterment of their own lives. 

The badge of the Office of Chaplain is the open Holy 
Bible, which should ever remind us of the high and holy 
office of the Chaplain. The Holy Bible holds a central 
place in Masonry. It is upon the Volume of the Sacred 
Law that the candidate is obligated, and all through his 
progress in Masonry the Sacred Writings are taught. Why 
then, with such teaching, can anyone criticize Masonry? 
Let me find the answer to this question in the words of the 
Son of God, whose mission was to expound the Sacred Writ- 
ings. He speaks, in the "Parable of the Sower," of the four 
kinds of soil upon which the seed fell: some by the wayside, 
some upon rock, some among the thorns and others on 
good ground. In other words, a lot of seed was wasted. 
Only what fell on good soil yielded anything. This surely 



196 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

is a picture of what happens in preaching — or any kind of 
teaching for that matter, be it in the Church, Synagogue 
or Masonic Temple. Not all of it takes root and bears fruit, 
but some does, and the explanation of the spread of all 
ideas is the same. There is some good ground in every 
congregation or lodge membership, and because of the seed 
falling on the good ground we have the Church in the world 
today. What is true of the Church is also true of our 
Ancient and Honourable Society. Let us examine ourselves. 
If we are not bearing fruit, it cannot be blamed on the 
seed, but the soil. Give the seed of Masonry a chance to 
take root in your soul and you will be a bearer of much 
fruit. As every applicant is reminded that he gets out of 
Masonry only in proportion as he puts in, may I add that 
he gets out of Masonry only what he has allowed Masonry 
to put into him. 

Yours respectfully and fraternally, 

GODFREY S. SCOVELL, 

Grand Chaplain. 



REPORT OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON 
LODGE FINANCES 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. N. C. 
Hart, Chairman, and on his motion, seconded by 
V.W. Bro. B. S. Edmondson, it was received and 
adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In the Grand Master's Address, appearing on page 65 
of the Proceedings of the Ninety-fifth Annual Communica- 
tion of this Grand Lodge, a recommendation was made for 
the appointment of a Special Committee to study the finan- 
cial circumstances existing among the constituent Lodges 
of this Grand Jurisdiction. 

This recommendation was subsequently approved by 
Grand Lodge, and the Grand Master was pleased to appoint 
the following Committee: M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel, M.W. 
Bro. W. J. Dunlop, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, V.W. Bro. Byron 
S. Edmondson and R.W. Bro. Nelson C. Hart, Chairman. 

The Committee prepared two Questionnaires, — one to 
be forwarded to individual Lodges and the other to Boards, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 197 

Companies or Corporations operating Masonic properties. 
Reports have not been received from all Lodges, and several 
Operating Bodies have failed to reply. In several cases the 
reports have lacked important information which was re- 
quested, and they have had to be returned for revision. 

As the Committee has not had an opportunity to make 
a complete survey and study of the many problems involved 
it begs to submit the following preliminary report. 

Initiation Fees — 

Range— $100.00 to $30.00. 

Increased— 42% of Lodges. 

Range of Increase— $25.00 to $10.00. 

It would, therefore, appear that a large percentage of 
Lodges should review the Initiation Fees and consider the 
advisability of increases. 

Annual Dues — 

Range— Resident— $15.00 to $5.00. 

Non-Resident— $12.00 to $3.00. 
Increased — Resident— 51% of Lodges— $3.00 to $1.00. 

Non-Resident — 45% of Lodges— $3.00 to 

$1.00. 

Almost 50% of the Lodges have failed to increase the 
Annual Dues since 1940. This appeal's open to criticism in 
view of the increasing costs of operation. 

Life Membership — 

There are almost as many schemes as there are Lodges. 
These fall generally into the following classes: 

(a) A few Lodges have no Life Memberships. 

(b) A few use actuarial tables; about 2% appear to 
have adopted the scheme suggested by Grand Lodge some 
years ago. 

(c) Many have a flat rate usually beginning after 10 
to 25 years membership. A deduction from the total sum 
is allowed per year for each year dues are paid beyond 
the minimum membership in some Lodges. 

(d) Flat Rates — variable after five-year periods of 
membership. 

It would appear that the Life Membership Schemes are 
not on a satisfactory basis in probably about 75% of the 
Lodges. 



193 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Less than 15% of the Lodges have a Life Membership 
Fund, and about the same percentage place the fees in the 
General Funds. Around 50% of the Lodges have other 
Reserve Funds in which a part of the Life Membership 
Fees may be placed. 

Benevolent Funds are established in about 10% of the 
Lodges. 

Lodge Properties, Revenues — Rentals — 

(1) Approximately one-third of the Lodges own their 
halls and about 27% are free from debt. 

(2) Around 10% of the Lodges own property jointly. 

(3) Probably over 25% of the Lodges meet on proper- 
ties owned by Temple Boards or Corporations. 

(4) Almost one-third of the Lodges meet in rented 
quarters. 

(5) Rentals have increased for 50% of the Lodges, and 
such increases have ranged from 16% to over 50%. 

(6) Several Lodges, owning their property, do not 
estimate or charge a rental, and the same applies in many 
cases of joint ownership of Masonic Halls. 

(7) Apparently about 60% of the Lodges receive rev- 
enues from other Masonic Bodies meeting in the Lodge 
Rooms — Royal Arch Masons and Preceptories. 

Rentals to such bodies have been increased in about 30% 
of the cases, by amounts varying from 30% to 50%. In 
the majority of the cases the charges appear too low and 
should be revised especially when a flat yearly rate is paid. 
The per capita charge annually seems most satisfactory, 
but is operated by few Lodges. 

(8) In cases where Banquet Halls, etc., are rented to 
outside organizations, the rates often seem inadequate and 
apparently have been increased very little or not at all. 
In several instances membership dues have been raised but 
charges to other bodies, Masonic and otherwise, have re- 
mained the same. This really means that the Lodges sub- 
sidize the other organizations. 

(9) The rentals charged for stores, offices, etc., by 
the Lodges are fairly adequate but might be increased in 
some cases. 

Lodge Insurance — Property, Regalia, Etc. 

(1) Adequate insurance appears to be carried in about 
50% of the Lodges. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1951 199 

(2) About half of the Lodges have failed to increase 
their insurance since 1940. 

(3) In less than 10% of the Lodges the insurance has 
been doubled. This probably represents a somewhat ade- 
quate advance and should be considered by all Lodges. 

(4) Most Lodges should consider replacement costs for 
buildings, furnishings and regalia, and have their insurance 
adjusted accordingly. 

Your Committee feels that it would be premature to 
make recommendations until a complete study of all replies 
has been made, but from this preliminary survey it would 
offer the following suggestions: 

(1) That the constituent Lodges study annual dues as 
related to operating expenses. 

(2) That consideration should be given to the estab- 
lishment of satisfactory reserve funds. 

(3) That rentals to other Masonic Bodies should be 
adequate, and, that charges for halls, etc., to other outside 
organizations should be at rates reasonably close to those 
made by companies or individuals, who operate such proper- 
ties as a business. 

(4) That your Committee be authorized to continue 
its studies in the hope that a complete report may be sub- 
mitted at the Annual Communication of this Grand Lodge 
in 1952. 



Respectfully submitted.

FOREWORD 



The Reviews presented herewith tell the story of Eng- 
lish-speaking Freemasonry in action in many portions of the 
globe. No greater proof of the universality of Masonry 
can be found than what is disclosed in these reports, for 
they show that Freemasons the world over are troubled 
by the same problems, nourish the same aspirations and 
maintain the same loyalties as we do here in Canada. It 
is in the earnest hope that what is reported herein may 
prove interesting, instructive and even inspiring that this 
Report is submitted. 

A multitude of Masonic topics are revealed as the 
rich tapestry of Masonic endeavor is unrolled before us. 
The temptation to dwell in greater detail is in many cases 
almost irresistible, but there are limitations and in most 
cases little more can be done than to indicate where these 
matters are dealt with. For instance, here are a few sign- 
posts pointing to interesting comment: Over-large lodges 
— Scotland; non-attend?nce — New Mexico and Missouri; 
physical perfection — Nebraska; one or two or three rituals 
— British Columbia; benevolence — Alberta; Masonry in 
South Africa — Scotland; practical Freemasonry — New South 
Wales; the Scottish Rite and South America — Maryland; 
lions in the path — Ireland; guarding the portals — Connec- 
ticut; Masonic education — Indiana, Utah and Colorado; the 
problems of the unfit junior officer — Mexico York; new 
time limits and controls — Minnesota and Montana; improper 
use of Masonic emblems — South Australia. 

Of special interest is the stoiy of the new lodge at 
Goose Bay in Labrador that is now functioning under the 
Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia. In three different Reviews 
(Wisconsin, Washington and Manitoba) are recorded the 
lovely and moving farewells of brethren who have grown 
old in the service of the Craft. Noteworthy, too, are the 
views set forth at the Grand Lodge of West Virginia and 
at the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia, wherein 
the negative side of our approach to the menace of Com- 
munism is ably presented. It is of interest to remember 
that the Grand Lodges of England, Ireland and Scotland 
have taken exactly the same stand, a stand that so far finds 
little support in Masonic circles on this side of the Atlan- 
tic. However, it is pei'haps not without significance that 
in 1950 this subject of Communism attracted less attention 
in the Grand Lodges of the United States than has been 
the case for some years. 

The Reviews are the work of R.W. Bro. A. E. MacGregor, 
of Toronto, whose instructions were to pay particular 
attention (1) to the Proceedings of the Grand Lodges 
throughout the British Commonwealth, (2) to the inspira- 



tional aspects of Freemasonry as found in the orations of 
Masonic leaders and (3) to the decisions of presently rec- 
ognized Grand Lodges in connection with the applications 
for recognition that are being received in such numbers 
from South and Central America, from war-torn Europe 
and from the Orient. It was felt that Masonic activities 
in Canada, the British Islands and the Antipodes should 
be of particular interest to the brethren here in Ontario. 
It was felt, too, that extracts from the eloquent addresses 
of Masonic leaders throughout the world should be com- 
mended to the attention of all students of our art. These 
sparks from the thoughts of other men are too numerous 
to mention individually, but it would seem proper to call 
special attention to the address of R.W. Bro. Nathan Roscoe 
Pound, sometime Dean of the Harvard Law School, as 
given under Nebraska; to the address of the Grand Master 
of Virginia, and the eloquent remarks of the Grand Chap- 
lain of South Carolina. 

The third subject referred to in the above paragraph, 
foreign recognition, has suddenly become a major problem 
everywhere, a problem unbelievably confused and with im- 
plications that are serious and far-reaching. At first sight 
it would appear that if there is any matter on which Free- 
masons should be able to agree it would be on the question 
of what is sound Masonry and what is unsound. The diffi- 
culty is that each Grand Lodge is a law unto itself in such 
fundamental matters as recognition of other jurisdictions. 
And Grand Lodges do not all think alike. In other words, 
the well-established and entirely reasonable doctrine of 
Grand Lodge sovereignty looms as an almost insurmount- 
able obstacle to any uniformity of thinking and of action 
— and yet uniformity of action would appear to be essential 
in this matter of foreign relations. 

What has happened in Canada is quite satisfactory, 
for almost without an exception the Canadian Grand Lodges 
have adopted the safe policy of "wait and see," refusing 
any new recognitions until the international situation has 
become stabilized. In the United States certain of the 
Grand Lodges are similarly refusing to commit themselves. 
But such is not the case in many instances and the confusion 
that is building up is disturbing, to say the least. We are 
even presented in several instances with the spectacle of 
a foreign Grand Lodge being granted recognition one year 
and having that recognition withdrawn the very next year. 
Certainly there is no uniformity in dealing with the requests 
for recognition from Italy, Israel, Germany. China and 
from Central and South America. Some Grand Lodges are 
generous enough to recognize nearly all of the applicants, 
some recognize one or two, and some present a blanket 
negative. The observer is tempted to ask "So what?" 
and to speculate as to "So whither." 

However, the records show that Masomy in the United 
States is not without its sound thinkers on this important 
subject. From the little Grand Lodge of New Mexico 



comes this good advice: "Until the political situation clari- 
fies we doubt the wisdom of granting any further recogni- 
tion to any foreign jurisdiction. In all probability less 
damage will be done by withholding recognition rather than 
to withdraw recognition after it is once extended." The 
Grand Lodge of Maine adopts a similar view of this most 
contentious matter. And the Grand Lodge of Michigan 
was informed by that well known and able Mason, W. Bro. 
George E. Bushnell, that his Committee on Foreign Rela- 
tions are delaying in their final judgment on these requests 
for recognition "due to our desire to be in accord, as far 
as possible, with our mother Grand Lodge of England and 
her sister Grand Lodges of Scotland and Ireland." Note, 
too, the constructive suggestion of the Grand Lodge of 
Iowa that some plan should be worked out to expedite the 
obtaining of authoritative information relative to juris- 
dictions not now recognized. For the Grand Lodge of 
Canada in Ontario, and indeed for all, we would add the 
thought that, in addition to such full information, certain 
pledges should be required from the new Grand Lodges, the 
nature of these pledges being indicated below. 

What has been said so far in reference to foreign rela- 
tions brings us to a discussion of the firm and unequivocal 
stand taken by the Grand Lodges of England, Ireland and 
Scotland. The story of the severance of relations with the 
Grand Lodge of Uruguay is fully told in the Review of 
England herewith, supplemented by what is said under 
Scotland. It is quite obvious that the position taken by 
Uruguay with reference to the G.A.O.T.U. hewed down one 
of the chief pillars of our whole Masonic system and that 
it could not be tolerated for a moment. Should certain 
enquiries now in progress show that other jurisdictions in 
Latin America or elsewhere are prepared to follow Uruguay 
we may expect further important developments in the near 
future, perhaps involving other withdrawals of recognition. 
England is determined to clean house. And so say we all. 

The emergence of this matter of foreign relations as 
of immediate importance is the direct result of post-war 
conditions in Europe, of political disturbances in Latin 
America and of the spread of rationalistic doctrines. Surely 
this remains to be said — that it is most desirable that some 
Masonically sound basic principles should be kept in mind 
by all who are charged with the responsibility of dealing 
with requests for recognition, kept in mind as the infallible 
yard-stick by which to measure Masonic acceptability. Few 
will quarrel with the sup-"-estion that a safe example of 
such essential principles is to be found in the requirements 
promulgated by the mother Grand Lodge of the world, the 
United Grand Lodge of England, and which have also been 
adopted by both Ireland and Scotland. These so-called 
"Basic Principles," eight in number, are forwarded in the 
form of a questionnaire to each jurisdiction requesting 
English recognition. It is quite certain that candid answers 
to such a questionnaire should make it reasonably easy to 



separate the Masonic wheat from the tares. Here are the 
English Basic Principles: 

1. Regularity of origin; i.e., each Grand Lodge 
shall have been established lawfully by a duly recog- 
nized Grand Lodge or by three or more regularly con- 
stituted Lodges. 

2. That a belief in the G.A.O.T.U. and His re- 
vealed will shall be an essential qualification for mem- 
bership. 

3. That all Initiates shall take their Obligation on 
or in full view of the Volume of the Sacred Law, by 
which is meant the revelation from above which is 
binding on the conscience of the particular individual 
who is being initiated. 

4. That the membership of the Grand Lodge and 
the individual Lodges shall be composed exclusively 
of men; and that each Grand Lodge shall have no 
Masonic intercourse of any kind with mixed Lodges or 
bodies which admit women to membership. 

5. That the Grand Lodge shall have sovereign 
jurisdiction over the lodges under its control; i.e., that 
it shall be a responsible, independent, self-governing 
organization, with sole and undisputed authority over 
the Craft or Symbolic Degrees (Entered Apprentice. 
Fellow Craft and Master Mason) within its jurisdiction 
and shall not in any way be subject to, or divide such 
authority with, a Supreme Council or other Power 
claiming any control or supervision over these degrees. 

6. That the Three Great Lights of Freemasonry 
(namely the Volume of the Sacred Law, the Square 
and Compasses) shall always be exhibited when the 
Grand Lodge or its subordinate Lodges are at work, 
the chief of these being the Volume of the Sacred Law. 

7. That the discussion of religion and politics 
within the Lodges shall be strictly prohibited. 

8. That the principles of the Antient Landmarks. 
Customs and Usages of the Craft shall be strictly 
observed. 

It is to be noted that Massachusetts and several other 
of the Grand Lodges in the United States and Canada have 
adopted the same procedure as that of England, submitting 
a set of Basic Principles practically synonymous with those 
of the British jurisdictions. Would that all would follow 
their example. 

In concluding, it merely remains to state that much more 
oould be be said in comment on the pleasing story presented 
in the Reviews that follow, records of the difficulties mas- 
tered, the problems solved, the ideals strengthened and the 



triumphs won by the Masonic Grand Lodges that speak 
the tongue that Shakespeare spoke. We can only ask 
that the brethren of the Grand Lodge of Canada in Ontario 
will read with care, read and be thankful to the G.A.O.T.U. 
who has so manifestly blessed our great Institution, read 
and learn what etill remains for Freemasonry to do. 

Fraternally submitted, 

FRANK A. COPUS, 

Chairman, Committee on Foreign Correspondence. 



Fraternal Correspondence and Reviews 



ALABAMA— 1950 

130th Annual — at Montgomery — November 21-22. 

Grand Master (acting) — Franklin Warren Parks 

Lodges, 426. Membership, 62,455. Gain, 2,153. 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. William Joseph Nash, Jr., 
had died on July the twenty-first, 1950, so the Deputy 
Grand Master assumed the vacant chair and at a later stage 
of this Communication was elected as Grand Master. 

It was reported that three Dispensations had been 
issued for new Lodges and these three were duly instituted 
during the year. 

The Committe on Foreign Correspondence gave their 
blessing to four more Jurisdictions: the United Grand Lodge 
of Germany, the Grand Lodge of China, that of Greece and 
the newly-styled Grand Lodge of Israel. Grand Lodge 
approved. It was felt that further consideration was neces- 
sary before favourable action on the Grand Lodge of Trieste. 

Franklin W. Parks of Montgomery, who had headed the 
Jurisdiction for the balance of M.W. Bro. Nash's term, was 
elected Grand Master. 



ALBERTA— 1950 

45th Annual — at Edmonton — June 14-15. 

Grand Master — Howard Burton Macdonald 

Lodges, 153 Membership, 14,962 Gain, 634 

As soon as the minutes of the last Communication had 
been confirmed, the distinguished visitors were received. 
First among them was our own P. G. M. Charles S. Hamilton 
who, as a further mark of esteem, was principal speaker 
at the Grand Lodge banquet on the Wednesday evening. 
His address, in full, is to be found on pages 142 to 146 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 7 

and our members here in Ontario have every reason to be 
proud of the way in which this distinguished brother proves 
himself as an exemplar of the Craft. 

His Honor, J. J. Bowen, Lieutenant-Governor of the 
Province, was next presented. Although he is not a 
member of our Order, he made a most kindly and appreciative 
reply to his introduction. 

Some one has written an appreciation of M-W. Bro. 
Macdonald as a foreword to these 1950 Proceedings and he 
ends his remarks with these words: "As a believer in visit- 
ation he has probably visited more constituent Lodges than 
any other Grand Master." M.W. Bro. Macdonald's comment 
on the state of the Craft in Alberta can therefore be taken 
as that gleaned from wide personal observation. Some of 
the cogent sentences in his Address are as follows: "I felt 
that something should be done by Grand Lodge to give more 
assistance to the officers of the constituent Lodges, and 
for that purpose I set up a Committee to give consideration 
to the question of the establishment of Schools of Instruc- 
tion." "I feel it important that all those holding any office 
in the Lodge should qualify themselves for the work under- 
taken." "I have tritd to impress upon the brethren the 
eminent place which Freemasonry should take in the world 
today. I feel that the Apostle Peter very aptly describes 
our brotherhood when he said — 'but ye are a chosen gener- 
ation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; 
that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath 
called you out of the darkness into his marvellous light.' " 
"The glory of Masonry consists in building, not in idle talk, 
— in deed and in fact." "Do you think we can conquer the 
lack of faith in the world today with material weapons or 
another world war? No! Only a passion can conquer a 
passion. Only a dynamic faith can conquer a faith." "How 
can we meet the challenger? First, we must, as Freemasons, 
rededicate ourselves to the great principles of our fraternity. 
Second, we must, as Freemasons, be prepared to ever practise 
outside the Lodge room the eternal truths we learn therein, 
and infuse them into the community in which we live." 

No report from Alberta would be complete without some 
mention of Yellowknife Lodge, No. 162, — that group of 
Craftsmen who meet in the gold area 800 air miles north of 
Edmonton. This Lodge has now 75 members, owns its own 
Hall, and is in a healthy and prosperous condition. When 
the Grand Master's representative visited there in February, 
in spite of the 40° below zero temperature, 39 members 
wero present. Such is Masonry up near the Arctic circle. 

Some of the members of Grand Lodge had thought that 
Grand Lodge shou-d enter upon some philanthropic or other 
than purely Masonic field of endeavour. A Committee was 
appointed in October 1949 to bring in a report, and to aid 



8 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

them, a questionnaire had been sent to the Lodges. A most 
important paragraph of the Committee's report reads thus: 

"It must be conceded that the advent of the near social 
state has in some degree circumscribed our benevolent activ- 
ities, especially in the case of old age pensioners and 
widows with young children. Otherwise the field appears to 
be as open as it ever was. A review of Grand Lodge 
benevolent activities during the past thirty yeai's when 
related to the express desire that something be done leads 
your Committee to the irresistible conclusion that the mem- 
bership at large is quite uninformed of the nature and 
extent of the activities of Grand Lodge Benevolent Committee, 
and it would seem that this is an opportune time to remedy 
that lack of knowledge." The Committee did not feel that 
"it can recommend any system of Masonic Home or Homes"; 
they felt that the matter of educational scholarships was 
already covered by the activities of the Benevolent Commit- 
tee; and, in conclusion, "that since the present Committee's 
work is incomplete, the incoming Grand Master should 
appoint a new Committee to pursue further studies." 

P. G. M. Ireland, aided by a goodly sized cohort of 
assistants, presents the report on Fraternal Correspondence. 
Apparently our 1949 Proceedings arrived just in time to 
make the printer's dead-line, but we are indebted to Wor. 
Bro. J- V. Downey for a pleasing review. 

LeRoy W. Bond of Calgary was elected Grand Master. 



ARIZONA— 1950 

68th Annual— at Flagstaff— April 24-25. 

Grand Master — Willis R. Pinkerton. 

Lodges, 41. Membership, 8,483. Gain, 344. 

M.W. Bro. Pinkerton reported that during the year he 
had visited the 39 warranted Lodges and the two working 
under Dispensation. He urged the Masters to keep their 
members interested by appointing as many as possible to one 
or other of the Lodge committees. He counselled those 
Lodges still operating on low fees to raise the rates in order 
to provide proper working capital. He had officiated at 
two Corner Stone Ceremonies,- — one for a new Masonic tem- 
ple and one for an addition to an existing temple. A Dis- 
pensation had been granted for a new Lodge at Buckeye. 

The Committee on Foreign Relations recommended the 
recognition of the "old regular Grand Lodge of Italy which 
has the official title Serenissima Gran Loggia Nazionale 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 9 

Italiana Degli Antichi Liberi Ed Accettati Massoni." 
Carried. 

There was a motion regarding the number of names 
which should appear on a petition for a Dispensation for a 
new Lodge. The previous figure was seven; the motion 
proposed twenty; a compromise for fifteen was accepted and 
apparently everyone was satisfied. 

Nelson T. Roach, of Chandler, was elected Grand 
Master. 



BRITISH COLUMBIA— 1950 

79th Annual — at New Westminster — June 22-23. 

Grand Master — Donald McGugan 

Lodges, 131 Membership, 18,449 Gain, 849 

It was originally intended to hold the 1950 Communi- 
cation at Prince Rupert, — about 500 miles up the coast from 
Vancouver, — but serious transportation difficulties developed 
and so it seemed to be wise to again assemble in the 
Vancouver area. 

There are interesting reports from two Special Com- 
mittees. First is the one from the Grand Historian stating 
that as the result of a year's hard woik, the new book 
"A History of Freemasonry in British Columbia" was just 
about completed. Part of the preface will read, "In this 
book we cannot give in detail the stories of the lives of the 
leaders of Freemasonry; but we do hope that the Masonic 
spirit which influenced their best thought shall live in these 
pages, and that the work of those who have contributed 
so materially to our Masonic history will be faithfully 
protrayed." 

The report of the Committee on Ritual fills pages 
131 - 14G. There are three different rituals used in this 
Jurisdiction. These are: 

(a) The Canadian; practically the same as we use 
here in Ontario, and it is followed in 59 of the 
constituent Lodges. 

(b) The English and Australian; one Lodge, No. 44 
. uses the N.S.W. ritual and 11 use practically the 

same work as patterned by Lodges in England. 

(c) The American; as used in 58 Lodges. 

In presenting their report, the Committee begin by 
quoting pertinent pronouncements of the past such as 
Regulation 11 of Anderson's Constitutions: "All particular 



10 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Lodges are to observe the same usages as much as possible." 
On reading the Report, one comes to the conclusion that the 
Grand Lodge has failed to give firm directions as to 
uniformity of the work whenever the question has arisen 
in the past. In 1893 and in 1912 certain recommendations 
were made but evidently these were never fully implemented. 
In 1912 the Committee on Ritual recommended that any 
new Lodge receiving Warrants thereafter, should be free 
to select one of the three rituals. The standard for each 
particular work was to be that practised in a pattern or 
exemplar Lodge, these being defined as follows: "the 
English as practiced by Victoria-Columbia Lodge No. 1, 
the Scotch as practiced by Ashlar Lodge No. 3, the Canadian 
as practiced by Cascade Lodge No. 12." The present Com- 
mittee point out that this scheme, although supposed to be 
authoritative, was not assiduously adhered to. What the 
Grand Lodge of 1950 did was to adopt the report of the 
1949 Committee which made two definite recommendations, 
namely, (a) that the work of the Committee be continued 
and, (b) that the Committee be definitely authorized to make 
recommendations. It seems to your reviewer that the 
existence of three forms of Work in the Jurisdiction would 
demand higher than usual qualifications from members of 
a Board of Trial who might be delegated to examine visitors 
from sister Lodges, and a visiting D.D.G.M. would have to 
have three sets of testing equipment in his black bag. 
However, they may just be that good in B. C. 

A competent Committee under the leadership of R.W. 
Bro. J. Russell Oliver has prepared a very comprehensive 
Review of Correspondence. Our 1949 Proceedings have been 
nicely summarized by Wor. Bro. R. W. Ashworth and he 
has looked kindly on many of our activities. 

J. H. N. Morgan of New Westminster was elected Grand 
Master. 



CALIFORNIA— 1950 

101st Annual — -at San Francisco — October 9-13. 

Grand Master — Ellsworth Meyer 

Lodges, 605 Membership, 196,800 Gain, 6,257 

A forty-five year old Grand Master opened the Cen- 
tennial Observance of his Grand Lodge in the Civic Audi- 
torium before a gathering of 4,924 Masons and from then 
on, the five days were replete with events to fit the occasion. 

It must have been a rare treat to have heai'd the Very 
Reverend Willsie Martin, the Grand Chaplain, give his 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 11 

address at the devotional services, which followed the 
opening ceremony. His theme was "Men to match my 
mountains," and perhaps a few culled sentences will show 
the trend of his discourse. He first speaks of the present- 
day beauty of the mountains and the waters that flow from 
them to make garden of the land below. Then contrasting 
this vista with the fearsome barrier that they presented 
to the dust-stained pioneers of the last century, he goes on 
to say "These mountains that were so ominous and threat- 
ening to our pioneer forbears are a fitting symbol of the 
world today. For we of this generation are confronted with 
mountains of danger more terrible than the Siskiyou or 
the Sierras were to the pioneers." "But as serious as is 
the threat of Communism without, is the threat of corroding, 
disintegrating forces within our republic. Today, the 
whole economy is menaced by the philosophy of the Easy 
Road, by a willingness to barter our dear-bought liberties 
for security, not realizing that there is no security in 
material things, that the only security is an inner security 
based on character. The drift in many fields toward 
totalitarianism is very ominous. Socialism, however one 
garbs it, is a halfway house on the road to Communism." 

"What we need today is men to match these mountains 
of danger with their daring, to conquer them by wise, 
heroic action, and turn them, as did the pioneers of a 
century ago, into highways to opportunity. Men who couple 
dreams with deeds. Men with faith in themselves, men 
with faith in their fellow men." 

"This is an hour for Masons. Destiny hinges on the 
way men act today. Let us match our hour with conquering 
courage, sacrifice, wisdom and faith." The Grand Chaplain 
gave a great lead to a great meeting. 

In his message, M.W. Bro. Meyer first draws attention 
to the fact that thirty-nine Grand Masters were present, — 
from every part of the Union and from countries beyond. 
Our own Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon was there 
to represent M.W. Bro. J. P. Maher and the Masons of 
Ontario. Four new Lodges had been constituted during the 
year. Dispensations were granted for another six. One 
of the Grand Master's Proclamations required the Master 
of each Lodge to appoint a committee to interest sojourning 
Masons, who permanently reside in California, in visiting 
and becoming active in the Lodges of the State of their 
adoption. He felt that "many Masons who came here to 
make their homes but leave their membership elsewhere, 
in time drop off the Masonic tree." M.W. Bro. Meyer had 
travelled in excess of 31,000 miles — mostly by air— during 
the twelve months. 

The Committee on Policy and General Purposes rec- 
commended that California recognize the Grand Lodge of 



12 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Greece. This was adopted. A similar proposal re the 
Grand Lodge of Italy was halted until further information 
is received. 

We here in Ontario think we have a goodly crowd at 
our annual Grand Master's dinner. We do too, but on 
the evening of the first day at San Francisco 2,200 delegates 
attended the Fellowship Dinner at the Palace Hotel while 
at the same hour in the St. Francis Hotel, more than 600 
wives of Masters, Grand Lodge Officers and guests dined 
together. A Symphony Hour at the Opera House and a 
performance of "The Magic Flute" were other divertisements 
offered to the visitors. 

The eighty pages of Reviews presented by the Committee 
on Correspondence are a nice job of printing, well arranged 
and thoughtfully summarized. The main features of our 
1949 Proceedings are well covered. 

Arthur Paulsen of Weaverville was elected Grand 
Master. 



COLORADO— 1950 

90th Annual— at Denver— Sept. 19-20. 

Grand Master — Edwin J. Wittelshofer 

Lodges, 150 Membership, 40,505 Gain, 1,233 

Ther were no less than 15 Special Communications of 
the Grand Lodge during the year. Eleven of these were 
for Corner-Stone Ceremonies, two for the Constituting of 
new Lodges, and two for the Dedication of Craft premises. 

At the opening of this 90th Annual, the Grand Master, 
M.W. Bro. E. J. Wittelshofer, took his place with the Grand 
Representatives as our plenipotentiary. His commission 
as such dates back to 1940. 

In his address the Grand Master stressed Masonic 
education. "Unless the fi - atenity itself gives direction, 
opportunity, and explanation to new members as to where, 
how, and in what manner they can acquire a better and 
more complete knowledge of the great philosophy and high 
tenets of our Order, we cannot expect these new members 
of the Craft, who are unfamiliar with the highways of 
Masonry, to set out alone and without direction on the road 
toward better understanding." Looking somewhat askance 
at the restrictions which limit the field of the Benevolent 
Committee, he states that he is "firmly convinced that it is 
much better to have our coffers filled with the milk of 
human kindness than to have them surfeited with stocks 
and bonds. Masonic charity must at all times be an 
affirmative reality, not an idealistic slogan."

In closing' he says, "to acquire peace and harmony from 
chaos, to render love out of hate, we have only to renew our 
trust in God and seek the simple and old ideals upon which 
speculative Masonry has based its existence and seeks its 
destiny. These principles and purposes are the loftiest 
ever conceived by man. To the extent that we pursue them, 
and to that extent only, do we rise to our profession as 
Masons — that is to be just and upright men. To the pursuit 
of these ideals, I commend you with the admonition that 
the joy, the happiness, the satisfaction, is in the doing, for 
ideals like rainbows, are never reached." 

There was a proposal to set up a Lodge of Research. 
The incoming Grand Master is to appoint a Committee to 
make a further study and report at the January 1952 
Communication. 

C- Wheeler Barnes of Denver was elected Grand Master.

Grand Master — Philip J. Jones

In making his rounds of visits to the constituent 
Lodges, the need for greater care in two essentials of Lodge 
practice came frequently to the Grand Master's attention. 
The first was the necessity of more thorough examination 
of candidates. "Just because some well-known brother 
recommends a candidate does not mean that no personal 
investigation is required." The other topic was the avouch- 
ment of brothers. "Just because you sat in lodge with a 
brother years ago does not prove he is still in good standing. 
When you are asked to vouch for some brother be sure 
and ask to see his present year's dues card." In other 
words, these comments reiterate the familiar warning 
'guard well the portal'." 

From the Report of the Committee on the Masonic 
Home Endowment Fund we note that the total of the funds 
now held is something over one and one-third million dollars. 
"The Grand Lodge dues for charitable relief are now the 
highest in the country, being 86.00 for each individual 
Mason raised since 190*0. Ten years ago the average age 
of the members of the Home and Hospital was 72, but now 
it is 77 years." 

The Committe on Foreign Correspondence had received 
requests for recognition from two Grand Lodges in Italy, 
but the recommendation was for deferment pending the

results of further investigation. Action was also postponed 
on the requests of the Grand Lodges of China, Greece, 
Denmark, and those of Minas Gerais and Rio Grande do 
Sul of Brazil. However favourable decision was made in the 
case of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, and the United Grand Lodge 
of Germany. Readers may bear in mind that Connecticut 
has one offspring in Gei'many, — Stuttgart-American Lodge, 
U.D., which has a membership of 45. 

The Review of Other Grand Lodges condenses the 
contents of 68 Proceedings, giving generous space and 
careful analysis to all. Our 1948 Proceedings are included 
in the group. 

Frederick C. Hesselmeyer of New Haven was elected 
Grand Master. A graduate of Yale Law School, he has 
served with credit in U. S. Naval and Military forces, takes 
an active interest in educational institutions, and busily 
practises law in addition to his Masonry.

There is some real meat in the concluding paragraphs 
of the Grand Master's Address. "We need the assurance 
of brotherhood stressed within the walls of our Lodges. 
We need to know that our brethren will defend our rights 
as their own. We need the friendly handclasp and mutual 
trust which our association inspires. We need to be 
reminded that nothing is more valuable than the individual 
himself. We need the reminder that Masonry gives us that 
there is a Higher Power to whom all, from the youngest 
E.A. in the N.E. corner of the Lodge to the W.M. in the 
East, should reverently bow. Thus our Lodges become not 
just a retreat from the affairs of life, but an inner shrine 
to which we repair to light again the fires of our lives_ at 
those sacred altars. From them we return to our duties, 
determined to practise the precepts of our institution." 

P.G.M. Stewart Allmond heads the Committe on Foreign 
Correspondence. They recommended that the request of 
the United Grand Lodge of Germany for recognition be 
granted. However, postponement of action was recom- 
mended in the cases of the Grand Lodge of Vienna for 
Austria, the Grand Lodge of Greece, that of the Free 
Territorv of Trieste, that of Israel and also that of China. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 15 

It was further recommended that the request from the 
Grand Lodge of Amazonas and Acre be denied. 

The Masonic Home listed 14 men and 20 women as 
guests. The average age was 81 years, and the average 
annual expense for each was $1,068,36 Total securities 
and cash assets on hand are just under $400,000. 

The Abstracts of Proceedings, as prepared by P.G.M. 
Allmond, are presented in topical style. Some of the featured 
headings are Blue Lodge Attendance, Limitation of Mem- 
bership in Lodges, and Pension and Retirement Plans. 

Under the heading of Masonry Beyond Our Borders, 
there are pleasing groupings of comment styled Our 
Brethren to the North, Our Brethren to the South, Our 
Brethren Across the Atlantic, and Our Brethren Across the 
Pacific. As a final word to this very fine review Brother 
Allmond uses the injunction of M.W. Bro. Wall of Tasmania, 
— "Be faithful to our God, our Country and our laws." 

Henry I. Law of Wilmington was elected Grand Master. 



DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA— 1950 

140th Annual — at Washington — December 20. 

Grand Master — Marvin E. Fowler 

Lodges, 48. Membership, 24,876. Gain, 302. 

Grand Master Fowler officiated at two Cornerstone 
Ceremonies during his year and he had a Special Com- 
munication for the Dedication of the new Infirmary Building 
of the Masonic and Eastern Star Home. Fifty-six veteran 
Craftsmen received the Fifty-year Gold Button. 

The new Infirmary, which will accomodate 30 or more 
patients, was achieved by remodelling the former Children's 
Building. These alterations were carried out for ap- 
proximately $33,000, which is only a fraction of what an 
equivalent new building would have cost. The Endowment 
Fund has almost reached $700,000 and the list of guests as 
at November 1950 showed 85 women, 19 men and 3 children. 

The Committe on Correspondence had considered ac- 
ceding to the request of the Grand Lodge of China for re- 
cognition but they pointed out that although this new body 
was quite regular in descent and form, yet in view of 
conditions in that country, they recommended that action be 
deferred. There were no other applications. 



16 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The only difficult thing about reading the Review of 
Proceedings by Brother J. Walter Karsner is to try and 
put the book down before you finish these sketches of his. 
He is one of our favourite writers anyway but this year his 
stock takes another jump upward due to his very excellent 
Foreword wherein he tilts at those Masonic leaders who call 
on the Craft, as a Craft, to fight against communism. A 
sentence or two may give our readers his train of thought: 
"To every man who has even partially absorbed the lessons 
of his Masonic lodge, Communism, Communists and every 
related thing must be abhorrent. As a citizen of these 
United States, through every legal, personal and civic 
avenue he MUST be impelled to fight its damnable philosophy 
and acts to the utmost of his being. But is this proper 
work of Freemasonry ? Are we not straying far from the 
original plan of our Masonic pioneers, just as we are being 
pushed steadily away from the ideals of the framers of our 
Constitution?" 

Then he quotes the recent discussion in the Grand 
Lodge of England on this self -same point and continues: 
"We are organized to provide a series of Lodges where 
Masons can meet in a hallowed atmosphere, where good 
fellowship can be promoted through a Brotherhood founded 
upon the Fatherhood of God, where we can be happy in a 
confidence founded upon mutual trust, where character can 
be moulded and strengthened and aptitudes developed, so 
that our members are thereby better oualified to exercise 
a wholesome influence as citizens in their private capacities 
on all matters of public issue. We believe our influence 
should be confined within that orbit." So Brother Karsner 
poses the question, "sanctuary or battleground, — which shall 
our lodges be? Which is the better way? Freemasonry, 
specially created and wisely limited as a sanctuary from the 
hubhub of the market place, loses much of its finest worth — 
and strength — when it rushes downstairs and out into the 
street to yell with the mob." 

David S. Davison was elected Grand Master.

office in the Mother Grand Lodge. As our readers will note 
from our subject heading, the offices of the Grand Master 
and his Deputy are occupied by two eminent citizens of 
the realm that have added the Order of the Garter to that 
ancient and honorable badge, the lambskin or white leathern 
apron of the Mason. Then there is the Assistant Grand 
Master, Brig. General Darell, who by virtue of his out- 
standing militarv service now wears the C.B., C.M.G., and 
D.S.O. The Right Hon. the Earl of Derby was S.G.W. 
of 1949-50, Sir George Aylwen the J.G.W. The Rt. Rev. 
Lord Bishop of Woolwich was Grand Chaplain and Rt. 
Hon. Lord Newall, G.C-B., Marshall of the R.A.F., was 
Grand Steward. Many other offices were occupied by 
brethren highly regarded in educational, business and 
philantropic circles. 

Quarterly Communications were held on March 1st, 
June 7th, September 6th and December 6th. The Annual 
Installation was on April 26th. The attendance at these 
meetings ranged from 1545 to 1974. 

At the Quarterly Communication on September 6th, 
two very important subjects seem to have been in the fore 
front, — one of a somewhat disturbing nature, and the other, 
fortunately enough, a most happy one. The first had to do 
with the Grand Lodge of Uruguay, the other, of the visit 
to Australia by the Grand Secretary. 

The Grand Registrar brought the attention of the 
brethren to affairs Masonic in Uruguay. He began by 
citing one in particular of those basic principles of the 
United Grand Lodge of England — the presence in every 
Lodge of the open V.S-L. Word had reached England that, 
as the result of a conference of certain Central and South 
American Grand Lodges in April 1947 in Montevideo, a 
resolution was passed which would permit atheists to enter 
the Craft. Official request was made by England for a 
clear understanding of this ruling. Uruguay replied 
ambiguously, and then it was further established that there 
were no prayers in the ceremonies of Uruguayan Masonry. 
The United Grand Lodge of England made repeated requests 
to have these allegations either denied or confirmed, and 
not having received a satisfactory — in fact, not any answer, 
had no alternative but to withdraw recognition. 

The formula agreed on at the Montevideo Conference 
referred to was that the Grand Lodges there participating 
should adopt a basic principle "a belief in a Superior and 
Ideal Principle designated as the Great Architect of the 
Universe," which of course eliminates from our belief the 
personal God, our belief in the imortality of the soul. As 
V.W. Bro. J. Neville Gray put it, "our stand on this matter 
is unequivocal and resolute. The Grand Lodge of England 
regards the Lodges under its jurisdiction as sanctuaries 



18 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

where members meet for the purpose of being- happy and 
communicating happiness under Divine guidance. Nothing 
will induce us to depart from that standpoint." Needless 
to say, the motion to withdraw recognition from Uruguay 
met with unanimous and whole-hearted support. 

Early in 1950 the Grand Secretary, R.W. Sydney A. 
White, M.V.O., had been commissioned to make a trip to 
Australia to visit the several Grand Jurisdictions there in 
the interest of Universal Freemasonry. Before trying to 
condense his report of that trip into a paragraph or two, 
it may not be amiss to refresh our readers on some of the 
salient features of Australia's physiography. Its northern 
tip is just about the same distance from the equator as 
Trinidad in the West Indies is north of it; the city of Mel- 
bourne on Australia's south coast is roughly as far south 
of the equator as St. Louis, Missouri, is north of it. From 
east coast to west is similar to the distance between Mont- 
real and Vancouver. Some island! Little wonder that 
it took the Grand Secretary four months to complete his 
mission, a journey of over 23,000 miles by sea. 

Western Australia was first visited, when his particular 
errand was to attend the Golden Jubilee of this Grand Lodge. 
He refers to the Swan River, which flows by the city of 
Perth. The river is so named from the countless number 
of black swans which inhabit it. He drove 300 miles to 
visit a certain Lodge. "It is literally astounding to see what 
the brethren have done in these out-of-the-way parts. It 
has often meant the clearing of the bush and erecting and 
furnishing with their own workmanship, buildings where 
the brethren can perform their Masonic duties in suitable 
surroundings. And it should be remembered that the 
Lodges in these areas serve brethren living at distances 
of a hundred miles in every direction, with frequently 
nothing but tracks through dense growth which have been 
made by them, at least in part, or their forebears." 

He mentions the reservoir at Mundaring, from whence 
water is pumped over 300 miles to supply the Kalgoorlie 
gold field. He travelled over the Nullarbor (no trees) 
Plain, by rail to get to Port Augusta on the west coast- 
Three hundred miles of this line is a straightaway without 
a curve. 

In turn he visited Grand Lodge functions in Victoria, 
New South Wales and Queensland. He says, "Masonically, 
New South Wales is the largest of the Australian states. 
But size counts little in Freemasonry in the Commonwealth. 
They have another effect in view — to maintain its principles. 
Nothing daunts those whose duty it is to guide the Order 
in discharging their trust." 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 19 

As he said farewell from Freemantle on July 17, the 
Deputy Grand Master told him "these days will be in- 
effaceable." 

The final Quarterly Communication of 1950 was marked 
with great sorrow. The Earl of Scarbrough had to 
announce the death of His Grace, the Duke of Devonshire. 
"Our well-beloved Grand Master has gone from us so long 
before his time as to leave us not only sad in our hearts 
but unprepared in our minds. We shall remember him 
for his sense of duty; he was unsparing in the responsibility 
he was prepared to accept and the leadership he was willing 
to give. We shall remember him, too, for what he brought 
as his own personal contribution to all his many activities; 
he thought for himself, and brought natural dignity to the 
positions he held. But we shall remember him most for 
his courtesy and kindness. This constant kindness made 
him the most considerate of leaders to work with, and one 
of its results was that his three years as Grand Master have 
been singularly smooth and happy and enjoyable for those 
who worked with him." 

The Deputy Grand Master then read a message of 
sympathy which he proposed to send to the Duchess of 
Devonshire. He read it and then said, "I do not think, 
Brethren, that you will want that message to be formally 
moved and seconded. That might seem to make it a matter 
of routine, and you will wish . it to go from the heart of 
Grand Lodge. Will you, then, just show me by the well- 
known sign of assent that that is what you wish?" Can 
anyone fail to sense the hush and the heart-throb of that 
moment? 



FLORIDA— 1950 

121st Annual — at Jacksonville — April 18-20. 

Grand Master — A. Wayne Connor. 

Lodges, 235. Membership, 46,351. Gain, 3,071. 

Two of the highlights of M.W. Bro. Connor's year of 
office were, first, a meeting of a group of Masons on the 
lawn of the Little White House in Key West in December, 
1949, when the rank of Honorary Life Member and Past 
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Florida was conferred 
on the President of the United States ; second, a trip by about 
ninety brethren and their wives to Havana early in July, 
1949. The Grand Lodge of Cuba and the city officials seem- 
ingly could not do enough for Grand Master Connor and his 
party of travellers. 



20 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

No less than nine new Lodges were set to work Under 
Dispensation; eight Corner Stone ceremonies were per- 
formed. One of the latter happened to be for a new Pinellas 
County Jail. It is to be hoped that in future years none of 
those who know the significance of the N-E. corner will be 
numbered among those under duress. 

Florida now has a news-magazine devoted to Craft in- 
terests. "The Florida Mason" was launched during the year 
by a group of well-skilled and capable Masons in Miami. 
Although not an official publication, the new venture has 
been given the blessing of Grand Lodge. 

Our good friend Russell A. Williams, of Miami, initiated, 
passed and raised in a Toronto Lodge, is shown as Chair- 
man of the Committee on Masonic History; Chairman of 
the Committee to Examine Text Books of Public Schools; 
and also Chairman of the Committee on DeMolay. The duty 
of the second of these three is to be on the alert to detect 
any un-American tendencies in school books or youth lit- 
erature. 

We would like to quote a paragraph from the Oration 
of P.G.M. Hal W. Adams: 

"What is the secret of the imperishable vitality of Free 
Masonry? In my humble judgment, the answer can be 
found in the simple truth that its foundation is fixed in the 
Holy Bible; that its house was not builded upon the sand, 
but instead was firmly anchored until time shall be no more 
to the Eternal Rock of Ages. 

"From its pages we can learn what life is, and what its 
responsibilities, duties and obligations are. Masonry has 
always drunk deep from this fountain of faith, hope and 
charity. It is recounted that when the great scholar and 
writer, Sir Walter Scott, had come to his last hour, he turned 
and whispered to a watcher by his bedside, 'Read to me from 
the Book.' The friend bent low over him and inquired, 
'What book, my beloved friend, would you have me read 
from?' Looking at him with surprise in his eyes already 
cloudy with the mists of death, Sir Walter replied, 'You ask 
me what book. There is but one Book, and that is the Holy 
Bible.' " 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence recommended 
the recognition of the Grande Loja do Ceara and the Grande 
Loja do Estado do Para (both of Brazil), and also the Gran 
Logia del Estado de Nuevo Leon of Mexico. Several other 
requests for consideration had been received, — namely from 
the Serenissima Gran Loggia Nazionale Italiana; the Grand 
Lodge of Trieste, Italy; the Grand Lodge of Greece, and the 
Grand Lodge of China. Concerning these latter four, the 
Committee reported that they had not had proper time to 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 21 

consider these applications and they therefore recommended 
no action at the present time. 

R.W. Roy L. Martin has again prepared the Review of 
Proceedings of fifty other Grand Lodges which by reason 
of its scope, selection and style, makes instructive and easy 
reading. Florida is to be complimented on having such an 
able reviewer. 

Gus J. Dekle, of Perry, was elected Grand Master. 



GEORGIA— 1950 

164th Annual— at Macon — October 24-25. 

Grand Master — J. Everett Thrift 

Lodges, 468. Membership, 80,572. Gain, 3,682. 

The experience that the Grand Master had during his 
year of office should qualify him as an adept with the trowel. 
He officiated at no less than 17 Corner Stone Ceremonies. 
Eight of these were for new temples; five were for new 
church buildings and four for new schools. Five new 
Lodges were constituted and two Dedications performed. 
Three Lodges were working under Dispensation. A truly 
fruitful year. 

The Travis family of Savannah established something 
of a mark. Two blood brothers became Grand Masters of 
Georgia. M.W. Bro. John L. who ruled from the Grand 
East in 1937 passed on in May 1950, at the age of 82. By 
the same token, both brothers practised the profession of 
law. Their biographer writes of them, "They are not dead 
who live in the hearts they leave behind." 

Another mark: one hundred and five Fifty-year Emblems 
were presented to faithful members of the Craft. The 
Grand Master says that "some of the best meetings that we 
have attended during this administration have been when 
these emblems were presented." 

Marvin G. Pound of Sparta was elected Grand Master. 



IDAHO— 1950 

84th Annual — at Boise — Sept. 19-21. 

Grand Master — Jay A. Redfield 

Lodges, 82 Membership, 12,946 Gain, 424 

The well-skilled and well-versed Jay A. Redfield, Most 
Worshipful Grand Master, welcomed no less than eighteen 



22 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Past Grand Masters to his session of Grand Lodge at which 
the attested representatives of 72 of the constituent Lodges 
attended. 

On pages 18 and 19 of the Proceedings are listed 20 
questions on Masonic Law which a special committee drew 
up to cover "the most common errors, and of such a variety 
as to encourage a study of the entire Code and Digest." 
The points raised are interesting and instructive not only 
to W.M.'s in Idaho but also to those of any other Grand 
Jurisdiction. 

The Grand Master made reference to his visit to the 
Annual Communication of British Columbia on June 23, 
1950. 

Authorization was given for Lodges to operate under 
dispensation in Boise and at Twin Falls. M.W. Bro. 
Redfield officiated at one Corner-stone ceremony, two 
Temple Dedications and at the Constituting of a new Lodge. 

The Report of the Committee on Foreign Correspond- 
ence comprises matters dealing with fraternal relations 
with other jurisdictions as well as the usual reviews. Ten 
applications for recognition had been received and the 
recommendations of the Committee received the unanimous 
support of the Grand Lodge. These are the successful 
applicants: Ceara, Minas Gerais, and Rio Grande do Sul — 
all in Brazil; China, France Nationale, Austria (Vienna,) 
and the United Grand Lodge of Germany. 

The Reviews by P.G.M. Jay Glover Elridge are enter- 
taining as well as educative. He threatens to resign in 
1951, and if he does, we are going to lose one of our favorite 
commentators. He gives a very fine summary of our 1949 
Proceedings and we thank him sincerely for his kind refer- 
ence to our work. 

Summer G. Davis of Jerome was elected Grand Master. 



ILLINOIS— 1950 

lllth Annual — at Chicago — October 10-11.

Lodges, 975 Membership, 243,519 Gain, 5,552 

Several personalities take the eye of the Ontario 
reader as he scans the Proceedings of this good neighbor 
of ours. First of all, we note that our own Grand Master, 
M.W. Bro. James P. Maher, was received as one of several 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 23 

rulers of outside Jurisdictions. Secondly, it is a matter 
of regret to record the passing- of our former representative 
at the Grand Lodge of Illinois, V.W. Bro. Henry M. Robinson, 
who had served us well for many years. He died on 
February 2, 1950, at the age of 89. He attended our Annual 
Communication in Toronto in July 1948. Bro. William R. 
Peters of Chicago has been commissioned to succeed him. 
Thirdly, it saddens your reviewer to learn of the demise of 
P.G.M. Elmer E. Beach of Raleigh, North Carolina, on 
March 17th, 1950. He was learned in the Craft, was elected 
Grand Master in 1921, and for many years had been Chair- 
man of the Committee on Masonic Correspondence with such 
success that his work was equally a tribute to himself 
and highly creditable to his own Grand Lodge. We shall 
miss him. Perhaps we should also here make record of the 
death of Brother the Reverend Joseph Fort Newton on 
January 24th, 1950. He was raised a M.M. in an Illinois 
Lodge in 1902 and he soon came to the fore and became 
known world-wide as one, if not the greatest, of Masonic 
students and writers of the past half century. His book 
"The Builders" has been translated into six languages. 

The Committee on Foreign Jurisdictions had just 
one definite recommendation to make, and that was 
that the Grand Lodge o f Norway should be accorded 
recognition. A number of applications were , on hand but 
the Committe felt that "these should be treated with a 
cordial, friendly, fraternal and receptive attitude, but 
withal, insistent upon a strict compliance with the standards 
of recognition adopted by this Grand Lodge." Until 
there has been time for further study, no other recom- 
mendations are made. 

P.G.M. Hal C. McLoud, who was the chief head and 
ruler of the Craft in 1935-36, makes his bow as Chairman 
of the Committee on Masonic Correspondence. He has a 
finely balanced style and an excellent choice of adjectives. 
We regret that Canada in Ontario is not included in this 
first survey of his, but we extend our greetings to this 
new incumbent of the reviewer's desk. 

M.W- Bro. Patton was elected for a second year as 
Grand Master. 



INDIANA— 1950 

128th Annual — at Indianapolis — May 16-17. 

Grand Master — John W. Thornburgh. 

Lodges, 540 Membership, 165,133 Gain, 4,182 

In the list of Distinguished Guests present at the 
opening, we note the name of R.W. Bro. Thomas K. Wade, 



24 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

a well-known P.G.S.W. of Toronto, who was representing 
our Grand Master. P.G.M. Orvis A. Dellinger of Fort 
Wayne was there representing our Grand Lodge. 

The Grand Master's Address is quite lengthy and 
covers much ground. Reporting on his visits about the 
jurisdiction, he discovered an intense interest in Masonry 
and a pronounced desire for further material for the 
Masonic student. He comments: "Knowledge of the history 
of Masonry is paramount. The philosophy of Masonry 
must be comprehended, otherwise most of the symbolism of 
the principles of Masonry will be misunderstood." He 
urges the Lodges to move along with the times and increase 
the scale of fees and dues. "Masonry can never be placed 
on too high a plane. It is a good buy at any price." He 
recommends more attention to Lodge room accommodation. 
"Too many of our Lodges are attempting to disseminate 
Masonic light in rooms that are dark and dingy." He 
recalls with evident pleasure his visit to our 1949 Annual 
Communication in Toronto. 

M.W. Bro. Thornburgh conducted three Hall dedications; 
laid two corner-stones with due Masonic ceremony; and 
he presided at the Constitution of two new lodges. His 
monthly messages printed in that excellent journal, "The 
Indiana Freemason," kept him in direct touch with all his 
Lodges. 

The Report of the Commission appointed in 1949 to 
study the Masonic Home was read. The principal conclu- 
sions reached were that (a) there will be an increasing 
need of accommodation for the aged Mason and his widow; 
(b) the need and demand for accomodation for children is 
diminishing; (c) the need for outside cash assistance will 
continue to increase — i.e., other money in addition to the 
income from invested funds now on hand; (d) the con- 
struction of employee housing is necessary. The yearly 
report shows the Home enrollment as 125 men, 157 women, 
44 boys and 32 girls. The total cost per capita for the year 
ending April 30, 1950 was just over one thousand dollars 
per member. 

The Committee on Foreign Relations reviews briefly 
conditions in five outside jurisdictions. Minas Gerais was 
recognized in 1949, and in the light of further reports since 
received, the Committee felt that no mistake had been made. 
Favorable comment is made on the resurgence of German 
Masonry; to its awakening in Italy, and in Greece. No 
recommendations are made for any new recognitions. 

The Report of the Committee on Masonic Education 
is wholesome. Here are excerpts: 

"For three years, the Committee has operated under

best by encouraging each Lodge to develop its own educa- 
tional program along paths of its own choice, assisted by 
material and suggestions to be contributed by this Grand 
Lodge Committee. This policy is based upon the sound 
premise that the training and education of a Mason in the 
esential phases of our Craft is properly as much a function 
of each Lodge as the conferring of the degrees." 

"Whether or not this policy and the Committee's faith 
in the vision of our Lodge leaders has been justified is a 
question that only the Lodges themselves can answer. There 
is no direct yardstick for measuring the results of education 
in any field, Masonry included. They are intangibles which 
are reflected in the lives of individuals and their influence 
upon community, state and nation. Sixty-three per cent 
of our Lodges have reported the appointment of Education 
Committees which are charged with the responsibility of 
promoting a program of instruction for the Lodge." 

"This Committee of the Grand Lodge has no estab- 
lished method whereby a definite check can be made upon 
the educational efforts of each individual Lodge, nor does 
it feel that such a check is necessary or desirable. Free- 
masonry operates upon the basis of 'your own free will and 
accord'. It is evident that there is now prevalent more than 
a casual interest in matters pertaining to Masonic education 
in this Grand Jurisdiction. Yet we must face the fact that, 
to date, we have barely 'scratched the surface' in the 
important, yes vital, matter of producing Master Masons 
who are well informed concerning the extra-ritualistic phases 
of Masonry." 

The review of Proceedings by P.G.M. Dwight L. Smith 
is in his own unique style. His five-page Foreword touches 
on the problems and situations which are more or less general 
to the Craft here in North America. Speaking of "fads" he 
says, "Let us take care that our Masonry does not become 
too modern, too streamlined, too big business." He recalls 
Roscoe Pound's words, "I hope Masonry never becomes so 
up-to-date that it will be out-of-date tomorrow." 

John Edward Baldridge, a business executive in 
Columbus, was elected Grand Master.

26 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Exterior views of two buildings are shown in these 
1950 Proceedings. One is the proposed new Library and 
Administration Building at Cedar Rapids. The present 
Library and Administrative Building was erected in 1884, 
and as the collection in the Iowa Grand Lodge Library is 
one of the largest and finest in the world, it goes without 
saying that it has far outgrown the available accommodation. 

The other building shown is the well established Masonic 
Sanitarium at Bettendorf where an average daily patient 
population of 35 is maintained throughout the year. 
Bettendorf is just outside the city of Davenport. The 
building appears to be designed on pleasing lines. 

The setting up of a Lodge of Research was approved. 
A Charter will be issued and Master Masons in Iowa are 
eligible for membership. The work of the Lodge will be 
confined to study, historical research, discussions and any 
necessary printing or publication operations. With the 
immense resources of the Grand Lodge Library available, 
this new venture is bound to be heard from in years to come. 

The Committee on Grand Lodge recognition recommend- 
ed that fraternal relations be established with the Grand 
Lodge of Panama. Adopted. They feel that further 
enquiry should be made before coming to a decision on the 
Grand Lodges of Israel, Greece, Nuevo Leon, Trieste and 
China. The second part of this Committee's Report recom- 
mends that some plan be worked out to expedite and increase 
the tempo of obtaining authoritative information relative to 
jurisdictions not now recognized but whose applications 
might be received in the future. The Committee thought 
that the Conference of Grand Secretaries which meets annu- 
ally in Washington, might undertake the formulation of a 
workable scheme. 

P.G.M. Ernest R. Moore keeps his Fraternal Review up 
to the high standards of previous years. He allots gener- 
ous space and generous comment to a summary of our 1949 
Proceedings. We feel that a word of commendation from 
him is always most sincere. He has quoted several para- 
graphs of M.W. Bro. T. H. Simpson's valedictory address. 

Glen G. Radcliffe, who lives at Boone, right in the centre 
of his Masonic domain, was elected Grand Master. 

IRELAND— 1950 

St. John's Day Meeting 

Grand Master — Raymond F. Brooke. 

Deputy Grand Master — Frank A. Lowe. 

Lodges: At Home, 686; Abroad, 87; Total, 773. 

The printed record of the work of the Grand Lodge of 
A.F. & A.M. of Ireland is contained in the Annual Report 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 27 

that is published by authority of the Grand Lodge. This 
Report gives the essential facts as to the activities of 
Freemasonry in Ireland but presents these facts in a form 
that differs somewhat from the printed Proceedings of other 
Grand Lodges. It would appear that in 1950 the Grand 
Lodge of Ireland enjoyed a year of peace, of harmony and 
of progress in all the essentials of the Craft. The youngest 
lodge appearing on the official list is numbered 1014, so 
that, after allowing for the usual number of vacancies, 
this Grand Lodge has approximately 773 lodges in active 
work. While the greater number of these lodges are 
located in Ireland, it is noteworthy that Ireland has lodges 
in distant portions of the globe, Provincial Grand Lodges 
being located in New Zealand, Northern South Africa, 
Southern Cape, Rhodesia and Natal. In all these portions 
of the Commonwealth Irish Freemasonry is quite active, 
new lodges having been warranted during the year in 
Natal, Kenya and Southern Cape. In troubled China, 
Ireland is also represented. The lodge at Shanghai has 
been sadly affected by the exodus of members but at 
Hong Kong the Irish lodge is said to be the most popular 
lodge in the Colony. 

For many years the Grand Lodge of Ireland has devoted 
particular attention to the maintenance of the two schools 
that are operated under Grand Lodge auspices, one for boys 
and one for girls. These schools continue to flourish, nor 
is it possible to estimate the great contribution that has 
been made through them, for literally hundreds of young 
people have graduated from the Masonic schools to take 
their places in the outside world. It is to be noted that 
once a child is elected to the schools they are fully main- 
tained as well as taught to the highest Secondary Standard 
during their school years and afterwards provided with 
grants for further education. 

R. W. Bro. Cecil Smyly, M.D., passed away during the 
year, and he is spoken of as one of the best known Free- 
masons in Ireland. It is recorded of this brother that "it 
could truly be said of Brother Smyly that he thought no 
evil, he spoke no evil and he saw no evil, and people rewarded 
him by trying to be what he thought them." How lovely 
a Masonic epitaph! 

Interesting and certainly most unusual is the incident 
noted by the Grand Master in which he tells of the ex- 
perience of an official representative of Grand Lodge who 
was on his way to visit certain lodges near Nairobi, in 
Africa. Driving through one of the game preserves, he 
and his friends, coming round a corner, found themselves 
face to face with 13 lions. They seem to have welcomed 
the representative of Grand Lodge somewhat coldly and 
after a few minutess' inspection the whole thirteen made 
off into the bush, much to the relief of the Masonic party.

KANSAS— 1950 

94th Annual — at Topeka — February 8-9. 

Grand Master — William H. Harrison. 

Lodges, 440. Membership, 89,479. Gain, 2,869. 

The Grand Master made this comment in opening his 
Address: "The prices of everything are still high, but the 
cost of friendship, brotherly love, and truth remain the 
same." He referred to the special expenditures of some 
$25,000 that had been made at the Masonic Home, and to 
the much-appreciated gift of a fine Wurlitzer organ that 
had been donated for the chapel by the Scottish Rite Bodies. 
He spoke at length on the liquor traffic as related to mem- 
bership qualifications, summing up his views on the matter 
in these words: "In all cases it should be borne in mind 
that the Masonic institution is unfriendly to the liquor traf- 
fic. Masons should be discouraged, as far as possible, from 
having any connection, direct or indirect, with this traffic- 
The important question in all cases is whether or not the 
act or transaction is derogatory to the reputation of Mason- 
ry. Our brethren must choose between Masonry and the 
liquor traffic." Emphasizing the care which should be ex- 
ercised by investigating committees, he said "always bear in 
mind that any petitioner you recommend may some day be 
Master of your Lodge." 

The Committee on Foreign Relations commented on the 
plight of the Gi-and Lodge of Spain whose headquarters are 
still "in exile" in Mexico. "We are very sympathetic for 
our brothers in Spain, but it appears that prayer is about 
all the aid that we can give them at this time." The Com- 
mittee recommended recognition of the Grand Lodge of Italy 
and a withdrawal of their previous acknowledgment of the 
Grand Orient of Italy. The Grand Lodge of Nuevo Leon, 
Mexico, was favourably regarded. There had been appeals 
for recognition from several of the Grand Lodges in Ger- 
many, but the Committee felt that "recognition of German 
Masonry at this time is a little premature for the best in- 
terest of regular Masonry." It was also the Committee's 
opinion that the Grand Lodge of Israel at Tel-Aviv was not 
regular. All the recommendations and opinions of the 
Committee were adopted. 

The Correspondence Review by P.G.M. Otto R. Souders 
makes a pleasing concluding chapter to the Proceedings vol- 
ume. Our 1948 Communication is one of 56 that are re- 
viewed and the highlights are well presented. We are par- 
ticularly grateful to Bro. Sauders for his commendation of 
our reviews. 

Lynn R. Brodrick, of Wichita, was elected Grand Master.

KENTUCKY— 1950 

150th Annual — at Louisville — October 17-19. 

Grand Master — Nathaniel S. King, Jr. 

Lodges, 470. Membership, 81,936. Gain, 3,739. 

Grand Master King reported the six Dedications of the 
year and four Consolidations of small Lodges. One Corner 
Stone Ceremony was performed. One hundred and nine 
brothers were presented with the Fifty-year Veterans 
Button. 

The residents in the Masonic Home at Louisville in 
September 1950 were 180 children and 136 widows. At 
the Old Masons' Home at Veachland were 19 women and 
87 men. 

P.G.M. John Henry Cowles again makes his compre- 
hensive report on the Universality of Freemasonry but in 
his concluding paragraph he intimates that this is to be his 
last as such. In the future he will deal only with the "regu- 
larity or irregularity of the various Masonic organizations 
that desire to establish friendly relations with the Grand 
Lodge of Kentucky." We can quite well appreciate his desire 
to ease up on some of his work when we are told that he 
was made a Master Mason in Louisville in 1888. His 
sketches of the present state of the Craft in the various 
countries of Central and South America fill seven pages 
and another four deal with Grand Lodges in Europe. 



P.G.M. Charles S. Johnston has written a most accept- 
able Review of Proceedings of other Grand Lodges and we 
here in Ontario are included in his survey.. He comments 
on our large attendance and the fact that mileage and 
per-diem are not paid to delegates from our constituent 
Lodges, and says "we wonder how many delegates in the 
States would attend if they did not receive transportation 
and expense." 

The three Brothers Freshney of Covington Lodge, No. 
109, were given an ovation when they appeared together on 
the dais. Ernest E. Freshney is the father of the newly- 
elected Grand Master, Edwin E. Freshney, and is the grand- 
father of William K. The latter had been raised a M.M. 
by his father on the previous evening.

LOUISIANA— 1950 

139th Annual — at New Orleans — February 6-8. 

Grand Master — Paul B. Habans. 

Lodges, 252. Membership, 39,985. Gain, 2,286. 

We note that our own R.W. Bro. Joseph A. Hearn, 
representing the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of 
Canada in Ontario, and also as the President of the Masonic 
Relief Association of the United States and Canada, was 
presented as a distinguished visitor to this Communication. 

The Grand Master reported that he had constituted 
four new Lodges, had dedicated three new Lodge halls and 
laid the comer stone for a new City Hall in West Monroe. 

Louisiana maintains a Masonic Home for orphan child- 
ren at Alexandria. It was opened in 1925. A full histori- 
cal report of 22 pages details the bright spots of the inter- 
vening years as well as the days of concei'n when available 
funds dropped during the depression years of the 1930's. 
During 1949, the number of children residing in the Home 
averaged 48, at a total expense of $56,475.99, which sum 
includes repairs and replacements as well as actual operat- 
ing expense. Back in 1933 the Home population rose to 
102. There has been some agitation in Louisiana for a 
Home for aged masons, and in order to give information 
on the subject Past Grand Master Edwin F. Gayle reviews 
what is being done in the matter in 25 Grand Jurisdictions. 

The Grand Master recommended that some loving care 
should be exercised on the graves of Past Grand Masters 
of the pioneer days. The earliest of these was P. Francois 
Dubourg, the first G.M., whose term of office was in the 
long ago of 1812-14. The last resting places of four others 
of later date are also to receive proper attention. 

The Committee on Foi'eign Correspondence recommend- 
ed "that relations be discontinued with the Grand Lodge Zur 
Sonne and the Grand Lodge of Hamburg, which no longer 
exist, and that the United Grand Lodge of Germany be 
recognized and representatives exchanged." They also rec- 
ommended that recognition be extended to the Grand Lodge 
of Israel of A.F. & A.M. The report was adopted. 

Robert Wesley Cretney, a graduate of the University of 
Wisconsin in Chemical Engineering, a vereran of World 
War I, and in religion a Presbyterian, was elected Grand 
Master. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 31 

MAINE— 1950 

131st Annual— at Portland — May 2-4. 

Grand Master — Grenville C Gray. 

Lodges, 207. Membership, 44,181. Gain, 931. 

At the opening, the assembled brethren sang one verse 
of "America" and one verse of "God Save the King." This 
is a well-established custom in many of the border States 
and Provinces, and it does seem to us eminently fittting, for 
an organization that has brotherly love as one of its chief 
tenets, to thus begin such a meeting by first clearing away, 
as it were, physical boundaries and in their place to estab- 
lish the handclasp of true friendship. 

In closing his Address the Grand Master asked that 
oft-heard question, "What is Masonry?" And as a partial 
answer he quoted these words of the late Rev. Dr. Ashley 
A. Smith, who was Grand Master in 1910: "All Masons 
meet on a common ground level of belief and faith; and so 
this institution is today not only one of the safeguards and 
bulwarks of theism but one of the great positive forces for 
religious tolerance and unity; its inevitable and constructive 
tendency is to unite men of varying belief, to level the bar- 
riers of mere denominationalism, to teach all of us the 
belief in one God. The character and the scope of Masonic 
influence is for righteousness and peace and morality, for 
integrity and character. It occupies a very important place 
in the advancement and enlightenment of the world." 

R.W. Bro. Pollard presented the Report of the Com- 
mittee on Foreign Correspondence and their recommenda- 
tions on applications from other jurisdictions for recognition 
were as follows: (a) Uruguay. That the application be 
summarily denied; (b) that recognition be withheld, for the 
present, from the Grand Lodge Zuden Alten Pflichten at 
Berlin; the United Grand Lodge of Germany at Frankfort; 
the National Grand Lodge of Italy at Rome; the Grand 
Lodge of Greece at Athens; the Grand Orient of Amazonas 
and Acre in Brazil; and the Grand Lodge of Tamaulipas, in 
Mexico. The Committee added that they had a great deal 
of respect and sympathy for certain of these applicants. 
However, in view of the extremely unsatisfactory conditions 
existing both in Europe and Latin America, they were not 
prepared to make any favorable recommendations at the 
present time. 

The newly-organized Grand Lodge of China had also 
written for recognition, but here again, although the Com- 
mittee was sympathetic, yet they recommended the post- 
ponement of consideration until the next Annual Communi- 
cation. The Report was accepted. 



32 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

RW. Bro. Pollard is also responsible for the very com- 
plete Report of Correspondence covering the Proceedings 
of three score and ten Grand Jurisdictions. He concludes 
his excellent Foreword with these sane observations: "The 
formal recognition of another sovereign Masonic power is 
by far the most important and far-reaching act which a 
Grand Lodge can be called upon to perform, and a heavy 
bui'den of responsibility rests upon those whose duty it is 
to advise the Grand Lodge on such matters. . . An excess 
of caution today is far better than embarrassment and vain 
regrets tomorrow." Brother Pollard writes appreciatively 
of the picture of Masonry as shown in our 1949 Proceedings 
and we thank him for his kindly remarks anent your re- 
viewer's work. 

Ervin Edwin James Lander, of Augusta, was elected 
Grand Master. 



MANITOBA— 1950 

75th Annual — at Winnipeg — August 9-10. 

Grand Master — Harry Coddington 

Lodges, 106 Membership, 13,549 Gain, 495 

The Officers of Grand Lodge assembled according to 
the Constitution on the first Wednesday in June but as 
proper accommodation was not available, due to the after- 
math of the flood-water conditions, it was decided to adjourn 
until August 9th. On this latter date a fully representative 
gathering met in the Fort Garry Hotel. 

As one reads these 1950 Proceedings, he cannot help 
but note the many, many references to the enforced absence 
through illness of the Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. Dr. 
Peter T. Pilkey. On April 1st of the previous year he was 
overtaken by a severe coronary thrombosis, and he writes a 
touching letter to his friends attending this 1950 Grand 
Lodge. We would like to quote a Masonic message which 
he sends to his brethren, and then his closing personal 
message from that letter. 

"Many years ago a good friend of mine paid me a 
visit. We spent two or three happy days together. He 
has long since ended the journey of life but he has left 
many happy memories with me. As we chatted one day 
in my study, our conversation drifted to the poet Browning, 
and among other things my friend said this: 'the foundations 
of Browning's philosophy of life were — the glory of the 
imperfect, the divinity of struggle, the supremacy of love, 
and the certainty of God.' My friend was not at that time 
a member of a Masonic Lodge but I thought he had 
expi-essed, in his own way, the greatest principles of our 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

noble Craft. Times does not permit me to amplify the 
statement made by my friend. It deserves some thought 
and understanding." 

And here is the brave farewell! "Again let me say 
'thank you' in all sincerity for all the kindness you have 
shown me and for all that it has meant to me in difficult 
and lonely days, as well as the co-operation given on all 
occasions. My beloved brethren, to one and all, 'au revoir.' " 

As it was quite evident that Dr. Pilkey could never 
return to his post, P.G.M. Harry Coddington was elected 
to the office of Grand Secretary. 

We note that our own M. W. Bro. Charles S. Hamilton 
was present and was formally received. He is the Grand 
Representative of Manitoba near our Grand Lodge and 
P.G.M. W. D. Lawrence of Winnipeg represents the Grand 
Lodge of Canada near that of Manitoba. 

The Grand Master reported petitions had been received 
for the formation of four new Lodges, and Dispensations for 
these bodies would be issued by the incoming Grand Master. 
A fine gesture of brotherly love was seen when the visiting 
Grand Master of Alberta handed to M.W. Bro. Coddington 
a cheque for $9,591,53 being the amount contributed to the 
Grand Lodge of Manitoba Relief Fund by the constituent 
Lodges of Alberta, and a further cheque of $5,000 from 
the Grand Lodge of Alberta. 

For several years now, P.G.M. William Douglas has 
presented an interesting chapter of Manitoba history to 
the Annual Communication. This year, being the 75th 
Anniversary, he goes back to the birth of the Grand Lodge, 
but he has an apology to make to the eager student of 
history. "The Red Letter day in the history of Freemasonry 
here was Wednesday, 12th May, 1875, because on that day 
the Grand Lodge of Manitoba was instituted. Strange 
as it may seem, we have to admit that it is impossible to 
name the brethren who participated in this memorable 
Masonic event. Our records do not reveal who was in 
attendance, but by reconstructing the meagre information 
now available, it can be estimated that the number did not 
exceed twenty." The first Grand Master was a native of 
Inverness, Scotland, William Clarkson Clarke. Shortly 
after the new Grand Lodge was instituted, M.W. Bro. 
Clarke moved to Ontario, and when the first Annual Com- 
munication was held in 1876, he was absent. He never 
returned to Manitoba. 

The Committee on Foreign Relations had received 
applications for recognition from these Grand bodies: 
Colombia, Minas Gerais, Italy, Sweden, Israel and China. 
But the Committee adds, "in no one of them has our enquiry 



34 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

advanced sufficiently to enable us to make a definite 
recommendation." 

R.W. Bro. Hugh M. Kerr is again Chairman of the 
Committe on Correspondence and in his topically-arranged 
Review, he quotes at some length from our Grand Master's 
Address in 1949, — particularly those paragraphs on the 
subject of Loyalty. 

Charles E. Cole of Portage la Prairie was elected 
Grand Master. 



MARYLAND— 1950 

164th Annual — at Baltimore — November 21-22. 

Grand Master — Harry O. Schroeder 

Lodges, 124 Membership, 41,262 Gain, 1,261 

The Report of the Committe on Foreign Relations, 
read at the Semi-Annual Communication on May 16th, is 
of more than passing interest because it puts into clear 
language a standard of judgement which is usually no more 
than hinted at. The Committee had to come to a decision 
regarding certain Central and South American jurisdictions 
and we can do no better than quote leading sentences from 
the report they submitted to Grand Lodge. 

This Committee was asked for an expression of its 
wvies as to the recognition of foreign Grand Lodges which 
trace their beginnings to Scottish Rite Masonry. P.D.G.M. 
Emich had said that former Committees had decided not to 
recommend any such Grand Lodges for recognition because 
it was felt that the separation of these Grand Lodges from 
Scottish Rite domination, was, in many cases, nominal and 
not real. Later, in 1949, his Committee voiced the opinion 
that the picture had changed if the Grand Lodge involved 
was the supreme Masonic authority. 

This year's Committee says: "It is our opinion that a 
clear line of distinction should be drawn between clandestine 
or illegitimate bodies, on the one hand, and bodies whose 
origin or formation may have been irregular, but which 
have cleared up such irregularity and, in all other respects, 
conform to the standards of recognition required by this 
Grand Lodge." 

"With reference to the South American Grand Lodges, 
the facts are, in the main, as follows: During the early 
part of the last century the only responsible functioning 
Masonic body in most of these countries was the Supreme 
Council of the Scottish Rite in that country. These bodies 



FRATEENAL CORRESPONDENCE 35 

were entirely regular and legitimate. Therefore, when it 
was desired to form symbolic lodges, it became necessary 
to procure charters from English or American Grand 
Lodges, or to do the only possible thing, organize lodges 
under authority from the only responsible functioning body 
in the country, namely, the Supreme Council. This was 
done in most of the South American countries, but event- 
ually the symbolic lodges became strong enough to assert 
their own authority and, in many instances, we are convinced, 
they completely threw off domination of the Supreme 
Council and their allegiance to it, and organized Grand 
Lodges which have been functioning in their own right as 
independent Sovereign bodies having sole jurisdiction over 
the first three degrees in the particular territory involved." 

"Where the facts convince our Committee that the 
separation is real and bona fide, and that the bodies have 
functioned for a long period of time as independent sover- 
eign bodies so far as the first thiee degrees are concerned, 
and acknowledge no authority over them in the Supreme 
Council, they have purged themselves, so to speak, of the 
irregularity of their formation, and provided they comply 
in all other respects with our requirements, should be 
granted recognition. By adopting this basis for consider- 
ing applications for recognition, we shall be acting on the 
facts as they really exist, rather than upon the mere acci- 
dent of birth, and will also be promoting the universality of 
Masonry, not only by lip service to that tenet, but by our 
actions." This statement of policy by the Committee was 
approved by a motion of the Grand Lodge. 

Following on the adoption of the foregoing decision, 
the Committee reported on ten applications that had been 
studied. Six of these were recommended for recognition, 
they being the Grand Lodges of Rio Grande Do Sul, 
Amazonas and Acre, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, China 
and Costa Rica. Carried. However at the Annual Com- 
munication it was decided to halt or rescind this action re 
the recently formed Grand Lodge of China on account of 
the disturbed situation there. 

Five other applications were reported on at the Annual 
Communication but of these, only one was recommended, 
namely, the Grand Lodge Del Territoria Liberto Di Trieste. 
Carried 

In giving account of his travels during his final year 
of office, the Grand Master refers to his visit to our 1950 
Communication in Toronto. Some of our readers will 
remember that he was accompanied by P.G.M. Huether and 
Grand Secretary Shaffer. He regretted that he had been 
unable to accept all invitations because "there was just not 
enough nights and not enough of me to go around." 



36 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Jacob Stoll New of Baltimore — a lawyer of parts and a 
mature and skilled craftsman — was elected Grand Master. 



MASSACHUSETTS— 1949 

Grand Master — Roger Keith. 

Lodges, 329. Membership, 114,261. Gain, 2,793. 

The constituent Lodges of this Grand Lodge include 
seven in the Panama Canal Zone, three in Chile, and five 
in China. As the first ranking Jurisdiction in the U.S.A., 
it is truly entitled to the initial "A" for Ancient, and also 
we might read "F" for far-flung. 

The features of the 1949 Proceedings are the special 
Anniversaries of the older Lodges. Of these, there were 
Special Communications of Grand Lodge for one 150th, two 
125th, and two 75th celebrations. Two new Temples were 
dedicated. 

At the March 9th Quarterly certain amendments to 
the Constitution were unanimously adopted. Now, each 
Lodge pays $5.00 to the Grand Lodge for each candidate 
initiated. Each Lodge also pays to Grand Lodge $3.00 an- 
nually for its charitable uses. 

There is an interesting account of the Grand Master's 
visit to the Canal Zone. At a reception in his honor in 
January, 1949, held in Panama City, the Temple was crowd- 
ed with brethren from the Panamanian Lodges, and there 
were representatives from the two Lodges on the Register 
of the Grand Lodge of Scotland which are also located there- 
Doric, one of the Canal Zone Lodges, is composed entirely 
of English-speaking Chinese brothers, — a rich testimony 
to the universality of Masonry. 

There is a splendid epitaph expressed in the reference 
to the demise of R.W. Charles Balcon, of Boston. "He never 
refused the warmth of life or the joy of living. He was 
a man among men and yet without compromise of prin- 
ciple. The teachings of Freemasonry became a part of 
his daily life, and there was in his heart the positive con- 
viction that life and love and the beauty of living are 
eternal." Many of us would envy a similar final tribute. 

Those Ontario Masons who were present at our Grand 
Master's Dinner in Toronto on July 19th, 1949, will probably 
remember that Grand Master Roger Keith and his Grand 
Marshal, R.W. Bro. Whitfield Johnson, occupied seats of 
honor at the head table. We are extremely proud of the 



FEATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 37 

cordial relations which exist between this senior Grand 
Jurisdiction of the United States and the Grand Lodge of 
Canada, in Ontario. Our own Deputy Grand Master Hart 
was an honored guest at the Feast of St. John the Evangel- 
ist in Boston on December 27th, 1949.

Master, M.W. Bro. Morend suddenly passed away. The 
Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Merrell W. Russey of 
Pachuca, became Acting Grand Master until the next Annual 
Communication. This Jurisdiction sustained further serious 
losses during the year by the death of two Past Grand 
Masters: Frank DeVotie and Marcus A. Loevy. 

The Committee on Foreign Relations reported that 
representatives had been appointed and exchanged with the 
Grande Loga Simbolica do Rio Grande do Sul. There had 
been correspondence with the Grand Lodges of Venezuela, 
Hamburg, and the Grande Oriente Espanol (in exile,) but 
no action was recommended. The Committee did however 
recommend the official recognition of the Grande Loja 
Simbolica do Ceara, Brazil. 

P.G.M. Walter S. Tumpaugh is evidently a man of 
parts. He held the office of Grand Orator in 1949-50, was 
Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, wrote the 
Reviews of other Grand Jurisdictions, (including ours of 
1949,) and also filled out the unexpired portion of the term 
of the late M.W. Bro. Loevy as Grand Lecturer. He feels 
quite strongly in the matter of proper qualifications for the 
Master's chair. "If a Mason does not completely and faith- 
fully perform all of the duties appertaining to the office of 
S.D., (which I consider as the final proving ground for an 
officer progressing toward the East,) then such a man has 
forfeited his right to be advanced to the South. Merely 
because one is 'in the line-up,' does not all convey any 
promise, any assurance of his being 'entitled' to be advanced. 
Merit, and Masonic merit only, is the reason for advance- 
ment. 



38 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

MICHIGAN— 1950 

106th Annual— at Grand Rapids— May 23-24. 

Grand Master — Hugh J. Johnston 

Lodges, 525. Membership, 157,205. Gain, 3,938. 

Masonically, Ontario has eight bordering neighbors. 
Quebec, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, 
Minnesota and Manitoba. Michigan is always interesting. 
At this Communication, Canada was represented as usual 
by William H. Parker, G. M. in 1937, and we note that our 
own Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Nelson C. Hart, ranks 
high on the list of distinguished guests. 

In his Address to the brethren, M.W. Bro. Johnston 
first referred to the Masonic Home at Alma, telling them 
that in the Hospital there were 75 rooms and all of them 
occupied; at the Home as of May 1st, there were 240 people 
and 19 on a waiting list. He puts it bluntly when he says 
"the only way one of our members can be admitted to the 
Home is when some of the members there answer Final 
Roll Call." He recommended a special assessment on all 
members to provide a fund for building the necessary extra 
accommodation. 

His comment on his visit to our Annual Communication 
of 1949 is as follows: "This is a very fine and unusual 
meeting. The work in their Grand Lodge is quite different 
from our own. More foreign Jurisdictions were represented 
at Toronto than at any other Jurisdiction that we know of." 
He had officiated at the Constitution of four new Lodges 
and at eight Dedications of Craft Temples. We note that 
in his list of Dispensations there are permissions for Laurel 
Lodge of Detroit to be host to our Mountain Lodge of 
Thorold; for Metropolitan Lodge of Detroit to visit our 
Oxford Lodge at Woodstock; for Four Square Lodge of 
Detroit to visit our Great Western Lodge at Windsor; for 
Redford Lodge of Detroit to visit our Durham Lodge No. 
306; to Wolverine Lodge of Detroit to visit our King Hiram 
Lodge at Ingersoll; to Fort Gratiot Lodge to visit our 
Pynx Lodge at Wallaceburg; to Flint Lodge of Flint City 
to visit our Petrolia Lodge; to S. Ward Lodge of Marine 
City to be host to our Victoria Lodge from Sarnia; to Union 
Lodge of Detroit to entertain our own No. 7 of that name 
from Grimsby; to Composite Lodge of Detroit to entertain 
our Great Western Lodge of Windsor; to Wolverine Lodge 
of Detroit to visit our King Hiram Lodge of Ingersoll; 
to Port Huron Lodge to entertain our Liberty Lodge from 
Sarnia; to Detroit Lodge to visit our Ontario Lodge at 
Windsor; to Lincoln Lodge of Detroit to visit our Britannia 
Lodge at Seaforth; to Four Square Lodge of Detroit to 
visit our Speed Lodge in Guelph, and for the same Lodge 
to be host to our Great Western Lodge from Wind-

sor; to Wolverine Lodge of Detroit to visit our Cam- 
eron Lodge at Dutton; to Ashlar Lodge of Detroit to visit 
our Tuscan Lodge at Detroit; to Composite Lodge of Detroit 
to be host to our Great Western Lodge from Windsor; to 
Detroit Lodge No. 2 to entertain our Ontario Lodge from 
Windsor and to Zion Lodge to be host to our Howard Lodge 
from Ridgetown. On most of these occasions the visiting 
Lodge exemplified their own authorized work. Most 
certainly our contacts with Michigan are friendly and 
frequent. Would that it were as easy for all mankind 
to step over international borders! It is a consummation 
devoutly to be wished for. 

The Chairman of the Committee on Fraternal Relations 
is that much-travelled and exceedingly well-informed brother, 
George E. Bushnell of Detroit. Here are sentences from 
the Report: "We hope ere long to make recommendations 
looking toward an extension of fraternal relations with the 
Grand Lodges in the several states of both Mexico and 
Brazil. We have made some progress in this respect, but 
are delayed in our final judgment. This is due to our 
desire to be in accord, as far as possible, with our Mother 
Grand Lodge in England and her sister Grand Lodges of 
Scotland and Ireland." Regarding the Craft in Mexico 
and South America, Brother Bushnell refers to the invest- 
igational trips of M.W. Bro. Melvin Johnston of Massa- 
chusetts to these countries and he adds: "Until Massa- 
chusetts acts, we prefer to proceed with due caution." A 
definite recommendation was made and approved for the 
recognition of the Grand Lodge of Greece. The Committee 
refrained from making favourable endorsement of bodies 
in Austria and Germany, Belgium, Israel and Trieste. At 
the conclusion of the reading of the Report, the Grand Lodge 
adopted motions recognizing the Grand Lodge of Greece and 
the United Grand Lodge of Germany. 

P.G.S.W. H. G. French is the official representative of 
Michigan near the Grand Lodge of Ontario. Whom could 
they have more able? 

Morgan J. Smeed of Rochester was elected Grand Master. 
Many do not know that he is a graduate of the University 
of Toronto, that his mother was a native of Devonshire, and 
that on his father's side, he can go back still two generations, 
both Masonic, by the way, to those critical days of one 
hundred and twenty-five years ago. 

We do have fraternal ties with Michigan. 



40 • GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

MINNESOTA— 1950 

97th Annual— at Saint Paul— March 22-23. 

Grand Master — Ray E. Cummins 

Lodges, 292 Membership, 60,708 Gain, 1,838 

This Grand Lodge, meeting in a city over 200 miles 
south of the International boundary, opened its proceedings 
with the presentation of their National Colors and the 
Union Jack after which the national anthems of both 
countries were sung. We note but one Canadian Grand 
Master in the list of distinguished visitors,and so the above 
salute to our country may be appreciated all the more as a 
genuine hands-across-the-border manifestation of brotherly 
love. As Deputy Grand Master Congdon had died during 
the year, the Grand Wardens were each advanced one chair 
at the opening of Grand Lodge and P.G.M. Tomhave sat as 
J.G.W. 

One of the first items dealt with in the Grand Master's 
Address was the Masonic Home. Evidently conditions 
over the past year or two had indicated some action. M.W. 
Bro. Cummins said, "something must be done and here is 
the vital problem. If you want to take care of more guests, 
it means enlarging the physical structure and providing the 
funds. If you want to provide fewer guests, admission 
requirements must be tightened." As at December 31, 1949, 
there were 167 residents in the Home of an average age of 
80 years. Sixty-four of these were men and 103 were 
women. The cost of care, over the year, was $775.36 each. 
The Special Committee which had been making a study of 
operational costs favoured raising the present per capita 
levy from $1.00 to $1.50 to assist in meeting maintenance 
costs. The survey will be continued for another year. 

Approval was given for a study by a Special Committee 
along these lines: (a) The lengthening of the time between 
the conferring of each of the three degrees; (b) requiring 
a M-M. to pass an examination on the third degree before 
petitioning for membership in any of the so-called higher 
bodies; (c) requiring a lapse of at least one year between 
the conferring of the third degree and petitioning for mem- 
bership in any of the so-called higher bodies. 

An amount of $200.00 was appropriated to provide for 
the purchase of new American and Canadian flags (with 
appropriate case or cover,) for the use of Grand Lodge. 
"Ever keep the colours bright." 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence successfully 
recommended the recognition of the Grand Lodge Nuevo 
Leon of Mexico. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 41 

The Proceedings conclude with a fine review of Foreign 
Correspondence by P.G.M. Montgomery, — his 28th, and his 
writings indicate that experience. He has made quite a 
full report on our 1949 Communication and we thank him 
for the interest and kindly comment that he makes on our 
work here in Ontario. 

Keith M. Brown of Fairmont (down near the Iowa line), 
was elected Grand Master. 



MISSISSIPPI— 1950 

132nd Annual — at Biloxi — February 14-15. 

Grand Master — Don S. Downie 

Lodges, 309. Membership, 41,163. Gain, 1,785. 

There is a slight difference in the top-structure between 
this Grand Lodge and our own. In Mississippi the Grand 
Master and the Grand Wardens are elected; the Deputy 
Grand Master, and the Grand Chaplain are appointed. 
The natural step-up is for the Senior Grand Warden to 
advance to the Grand Master's chair. 

From M.W. Bro. Downie's Address, we select these 
thoughts. "I do not feel that we have reached our ultimate 
aim, nor can Masonry make the powerful impact and be 
the influence for good in the community of which it is 
capable, unless more and more of our members can be 
prevailed upon to attend meetings regularly, and unless 
there are programs of work in the Lodges which are not 
only instructive, but interesting and entertaining." "I 
would respectfully suggest that we do not make the mistake 
of making our Masonry too cheap. Quite to the contrary, 
it should be made commensurate with the high value that we 
want our members to place upon their membership." "To 
make democracy function well is a difficult task. The 
problem grows out of the basic concept of democracy that 
there should be a maximum of individual freedom, and 
that persuasion rather than coercion should be the guiding 
force. But we the people, each and every one of us, must 
accept our share of the responsibility for making dem- 
ocracy work. We need zealots for democracy today. 
We need articulate enthusiasts, competent enthusiasts, 
enthusiasts who will do their share in making democracy 
function." 

Brother C. C. Buchanan presented his two-fold Report 
as Fraternal Correspondent. Regarding applications for 
recognition, he writes that "we again recommend that the 
requests of all these bodies be held up without prejudice 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

for further investigation." He was referring to Ceara, 
Nuevo Leon, Italy, the United Grand Lodge of Germany, 
Rio Grande du Sol, Minas Gerais and Zu den Alten Pflich- 
ten in Germany. 

As a result of his reading, Brother Buchanan lists 
the recurring topics of the day in this order: the need 
for unity among Masons; the need for the education of 
new Masons; the need for opposition to the persistent efforts 
to have public funds allotted for the support of separate 
or church-controlled schools; the establishment of a work- 
able retirement plan for long-time Grand Lodge employees; 
the ever-growing threat of Communism. 

A native son, Hal Kinabrew Jackson of McComb City, 
was elected Grand Master. 



MISSOURI— 1950 

129th Annual— at St. Louis— Sept. 26-28. 

Grand Master — James M. Bradford 

Lodges, 597 Membership, 113,801 Gain, 1,477 

In his Address the Grand Master poses a question to 
the membership. "Lodge attendance is far from being 
what it should be. I am concerned with the failure of a 
large number of the Brethren to attend Lodge meetings and 
to support their Lodges. The records show an average 
attendance of 20 per cent, or less. What about the 80 
per cent? It is inconceivable that Masonry has lost its 
appeal or that Masonic membership- has been extended to 
those unworthy of such privilege. But the ever-present 
question is how to stimulate the interest of the Brethren 
and thus increase Lodge attendance. Unfortunately, this 
problem confronts almost every Lodge and the answer is 
not forthcoming." 

There is an interesting note on his visit to the One 
Hundredth Anniversary Commemoration of Erwin Lodge 
No. 121. "From the time it was chartered until 1922, 
Erwin was truly a German Lodge and all work was done 
in the language of the Fatherland. As a result of the 
bitterness arising out of the first World War, English 
supplanted the German language. Thus did these brethren 
demonstrate that Masonic ties are stronger than racial 
ties. The name Erwin was chosen to honor Erwin Von 
Steinbeck, a Grand Master of Germany, and the principal 
.architect of the Cathedral at Strassburg." 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 43 

M.W. Bro. Bradford refers more than once to his visit 
to our Grand Lodge in Toronto in July of 1950. "The 
impression carried away from the entire proceedings is one 
of dignity, sincerity and devotion to country and fraternity." 
It was the first time that a Grand Master of Missouri has 
visited the Grand Lodge of Canada. 

He speaks with evident pride of the Missouri Lodge of 
Research which, "chartered only nine years ago, is now the 
largest institution of its kind in this country. (Total 
membership now 603.) President Truman is now Senior 
Warden of this Lodge and at the coming election, undoubt- 
edly will be chosen Worshipful Master." 

The Committee on Recognition of Foreign Grand Lodges 
favorably recommended the United Grand Lodge in Berlin, 
the recently instituted Grand Lodge of China, the Grand 
Lodge of Minas Gerais and the Grand Lodge of Greece. 
Due to the unsettled state of affairs in those countries, it 
was proposed that the names of the Grand Lodge of Hungary 
and two once existing in Czechoslovakia be removed from 
the list of Missouri-approved Jurisdictions. The application 
from the Grand Lodge of Israel had been considered but 
the Committee could not "recommend recognition at this 
time in view of the information supplied." In the case of 
Colombia, postponement of action was proposed until con- 
ditions in that country become more stable. 

P.G.M. Ray V. Denslow's annual conspectus, entitled 
"The Masonic World," takes the reader on a personally 
conducted global jaunt, with a stop-over this year in Berlin 
and Germany. "The City of Berlin constitutes an island 
of democracy in a sea of communism. It is not only the 
first line of defense for democracy, but the advance post for 
Freemasonry." The text is supplemented by photos of 
street scenes and persons in the news. Considerable time 
is also spent in Austria, Israel, Italy and the Philippines. 
Affairs Masonic in British Columbia and here in Ontario are 
also scenes along the route. 

Ray Bond of Joplin was promoted from Deputy to Grand 
Master. 



MONTANA— 1950 

86th Annual — at Missoula — August 15-16. 

Grand Master — Herbert F. Hosfeld 

Lodges, 135 Membership, 23,682 Gain, 422 

Sad necessity promoted the calling of four Special Com- 
munications during the year for the funerals of four Past 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Grand Masters. These were Parmalee of 1919, Charteris 
of 1927, Muri of 1929 and Johnston of 1938,— a great loss of 
talent in one year. 

M.W. Bro. Hosfeld visited Canadian Masonry on two 
occasions at the dinner of the Master's Association in 
Vancouver and at the Western Inter-provincial Conference 
at Banff. Plans were approved for the building of five 
new Temples. Thirty-five veterans of the Craft received 
the Fifty-year Certificate and Badge. 

The Grand Secretary reported that "notwithstanding 
the impact of the new legislation providing for automatic 
suspension on non-payment of dues, 38 Lodges — more than 
a quarter of the total — had no suspensions at all. There 
were only about half the number that we expected, and we 
already have word of many re-instatements. One thing 
seems certain: this legislation cleared the ledgers, and also 
resulted in the collection of a lot of delinquent dues." 

The Committee on Con-espondence had received four 
requests for recognition. Those of Minas Gerais and the 
United Grand Lodge of Germany were approved but regard- 
ing China and Vienna, the Committee deemed it "advisable 
to delay recognition of these two Grand Lodges for at least 
another year." 

The thorny matter of a Waiting Period before Advance- 
ment had been discussed at some length and an amendment 
was adopted which now declares it a Masonic offense for 
a M-M. to seek membership in a Royal Arch Chapter or 
Scottish Rite body until he shall have been a M.M. in good 
standing for at least one year. Solicitation of prospective 
candidates within the same period is also subject to the same 
penalty. 

P.G.M. Byron Gaither is now the Chairman of the 
Correspondence Committee and assisted by three others, 
the Proceedings of 54 Jurisdictions are reviewed. Good 
space is given to a resume of our 1949 Communication in 
Toronto. 

Percy W. Doles of Harve, (mid-top of the State) was 
elected Grand Master.

The Occasional Communication on October 21st, 1949, 
at Lincoln not only marked the 75th Anniversary of Lan- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 45 

caster Lodge, but was notable by reason of the presence of 
R.W. Nathan Roscoe Pound. This worthy brother, Dean 
of the Harvard Law School for two decades, has carved out 
a most distinguished career since his initiation in Lancaster 
in 1901. His writings on Masonic Jurisprudence are to be 
found on the shelves of every good Masonic book collection. 
At this Occasional Communication he was made an Honorary 
Past Grand Master of Nebraska, and following that cere- 
mony he gave a most scholarly address on the purpose and 
mission of Masonry. 

He starts out by saying that "the whole structure of 
society depends, on the one hand, upon the free, individual 
assertion involved in competition with our fellow men, and, 
on the other hand, the co-operation which makes the results 
of individual self-assei'tion acquisitions for all of us when 
we look at the development of civilization among men. We 
notice that from the very beginning we do not find them 
isolated. We find them in groups or associations. Of 
course, the oldest group is the kin group, or family. But 
as far back as we know anything about human associations, 
we find associations on the model of the household, on the 
model of kindred, but not kin groups at all. One of the 
most primitive, if not the most primitive of human institu- 
tions is the primitive secret society. It takes that form in 
the most primitive social organization we know of: the 
men's house." 

He then traces this idea down through the influential 
days of the ancient Greeks and Romans, and English 
medieval crafts down to the so-called revival of 1717. "I 
think we may safely hold that we are most authentic rep- 
resentatives of the old builder's tradition today, because we 
have with the symbolism of the operative art the purpose 
of perfection, which one way or another, seems to run 
through this long series of organizations: the perfection of 
the individual character, and raising the individual character 
to its highest possible unfolding, on the model of the build- 
ing that is to be built according to a plan, and that plan is 
to be suited to a purpose of human life; is to be suited, if 
nothing else, to a purpose of civilization; of taking one's 
place in this development of human powers to their highest 
unfolding." 

He then describes the intellectual labors of William 
Preston and Krause and Fichte, the German philosophers. 
Preston's search was for light and knowledge. Krause 
held that purpose of our Craft is to put an organization 
behind morals, and morals were the logical outcome of 
light and knowledge. Fichte said that "what is needed 
to promote civilization, to promote this raising of human 
powers to their highest unfolding, is a training which will 
develope an all-round view of all mankind; which will bring 
men to look at other men and at human affairs, not from 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

their particular calling, their particular walk of life, their 
particular variety of creed, but from a standpoint of de- 
veloped mankind." 

"Here is a program for the Craft, coming from the past 
and made for the future. I put it to you that the one 
thing as Masons which we need particularly to hold in mind 
is the idea of universality. Because Masonry has a world 
purpose, it is a world organization. Masons ought to be 
on the front bench, so to speak, in the school of today, 
because our task of maintaining, furthering and transmitting 
civilization is really the task of the world." 

The Report of the Committee on Jurisprudence involved 
a lengthy discussion on that lively subject, the perfect youth. 
Nebraska has always held closely to the idea of physical 
fitness of the candidate. A certain group had proposed an 
amendment to the constitution which would allow an easing 
of this restriction. But the Committee was definitely of 
the opinion that no change should be made. Here are 
sentences from their Report: "A Landmark is the highest 
form of Masonic law. It is unalterable and unchangeable. 
A Grand Lodge has no right to enact or enlarge a Landmark. 
Neither does it have a right to abolish or detract from one. 
Freemasonry is the oldest organization of its kind in the 
world today. It has attained this position because it has 
fervently adhered to these guide posts througout the ages. 
It will undoubtedly be pointed out that many patriotic and 
worthy men became physically incapacitated in war, and 
have therefore become ineligible to receive the degrees of 
Masonry. This we must admit. We desire to point out, 
however, that no man has a right to become a Mason. The 
fact that good men, seemingly worthy, are rejected is 
nothing new in Masonry. Sentiment and sympathy are 
virtues in their proper place, but they are destructive vices 
when used as an argument to support the violation or 
defilement of a Landmark. The innovation contained in 
the proposed amendments could well be the opening wedge 
to more destructive changes. Any apparent benefit coming 
from the proposed change will be overshadowed by the 
mischief it would create." 

It was then pointed out that every Master and Grand 
Master has taken an obligation to cling to the ancient 
Landmarks and to countenance no infringement of them; 
and having so outlined their opinion, the Committee put the 
decision up to the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge- 
The Report is to be read in full in each constituent Lodge, 
a consensus obtained, and a decision will be arrived at the 
next Communication. 

The Committee in Foreign Correspondence had received 
requests for recognition from the Grand Lodges of Ama- 
zonas and Acre, Germany, Greece, Territory of Trieste, 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 47 

China and Nuevo Leon, but only in the case of the latter 
was a favorable recommendation made. 

It was also recommended that recognition of the previ- 
ous year in favor of the Grand Orient of Italy be withdrawn. 
No alternative is suggested until conditions there become 
more stable. 

John S. Hedelund of Omaha was elected Grand Master.

The Grand Master had laid the Corner Stone for a new 
Church at Galilee and in addition to having visited all his 
Lodges, he installed the officers in six of them. 

The Committee on Legitimacy of Grand Lodges had 
received requests for recognition from the Grand Lodges of 
Denmark, Germany, China, Greece, Italy and Vienna, but 
they recommended only the first named. They desire 
further information regarding the other five. 

P.G.M. Edward C. Peterson, the Grand Secretary, has 
given his brethren of Nevada a comprehensive survey of 
what is going on elsewhere. Sixty-eight Jurisdictions are 
reviewed, our 1949 Communication being one of them. He 
finds worthwhile thoughts in M.W. Bro. Simpson's Address 
and makes kindly reference to the Foreword to our Reviews.

"Grant such love and devotion to Thee, our Creator, 
such unity of mind and high purpose, harmony and fellow- 
ship, loyalty to duty and the noble tenets of our Order, that 
all things thought, spoken and done here may be for the 
advancement of Freemasonry and for the good of all people, 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

and finally for our own salvation in that blessed Kingdom 
where the righteous shall find rest." With this fine 
sentiment the Reverend H. H. Hoyt, P. G. Chaplain, in- 
voked the blessing of the G.A.O.T.U. at the opening of this 
Communication. 

Here is a good thought from the Address of the Grand 
Master: "The strength of a Lodge is suggested by the 
largest number of participating members, and not by the 
largest membership. This I believe is one way of helping 
solve a problem that confronts most Lodges today — at- 
tendance." 

M.W. Bro. McLean referred to a petition that he had 
received to grant a Dispensation for the institution of a 
Lodge in the City of Saint John to be known as Tyrian 
Youth. Certain details of the application had to be cor- 
rected, and so the Dispensation had not been granted. How- 
ever the Committee on the Grand Master's Address com- 
mented that "the prospect of a new Lodge in the Saint 
John District is commendable and should have the support 
and encouragement of all the brethren as well as Grand 
Lodge. The last Lodge instituted in this District was 
New Brunswick Lodge No. 22 in 1868." 

A special Commnittee of the Board of General Purposes 
had made a survey of all Grand Lodges in North America 
and found that the almost universal practice was to elect 
the Lodge Wardens by popular ballot vote. Heretofore in 
New Brunswick they had been appointed by the Master. 
The Constitution is to be amended so that they may be 
elected, providing that the Lodge by-laws are amended 
accordingly. 

The Grand Master also made reference to his pleasure 
at attending the Conference of Eastern Canada Provinces at 
Quebec in the month of May. We note that our own 
Grand Treasurer, P.G.M. Dr. Dunlop, gave a talk on the 
Masonic Education of District Deputy Grand Masters. Our 
own present and past D.D.G.M.'s, all of whom have had 
the benefit of Dr. Dunlop's annual Class of Instruction, will 
vouch that this is a most essential briefing for the worthy 
brother who has been elected to be the "eyes and ears" of 
the Grand Master in that particular District for the ensuing 
twelvemonth. 

M.W. Bro. McLean was elected Grand Master for a 
second year.

The District Grand Master stated that he had just 
finished his 8th term of office. He had dedicated and 
consecrated the new Lodge at Gander Airport. The District 
Grand Junior Warden was well-deserving of the praise 
accorded him by R.W. Bro. Williams for his zeal and courage 
in making a winter visit to the Lodge at Willi ngate which 
is on an island in the Atlantic, north of Lewisporte. The 
trip involved 264 miles by railway and then 45 miles by 
tractor over Arctic ice. He conducted the Annual Install- 
ation of Officers — probably the first time it had ever been 
done by a District Officer. 

Several references are made in the Grand Master's 
Diary to the hospitalization of the Honorable and Wor. Bro 
J. S. Currie, the Deputy District Grand Master. He 

apparently had well recovered by April. 

The state of the Craft in Newfoundland is said to be 
healthy and from the reading of the Proceedings, one gains 
the opinion that the high standards of the Craft are being 
steadfastly maintained to the pleasure and honor of all 
concerned.

There is quite an interesting report from the Committee

Representative of New Hampshire near the Grand Lodge of 
Ireland, with a request that we forward to the Grand Secre- 
tary of the G. L. of Ireland a list of the Grand Lodges recog- 
nized by the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire. The same 
was forwarded and a reply informed us that, because we 
(New Hampshire) recognized the Grand Lodge of Italy, 
they were unable to go into the matter of submitting a name 
to represent us in their Grand Lodge. A later letter in- 
formed us that they were not severing fraternal relations 
with us, nor cancelling the patent of their representative, 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

R.W. Bro. W. E. Dunlap, only that they would not make, 
sanction or approve a new appointment in their Grand 
Lodge." The Committee did not make any recommendation 
in the matter, they merely submitted the incident for the 
information of the members of the G.L. of New Hampshire. 

It was also reported that requests for recognition had 
been received from the Grand Lodges of Israel, Germany 
(Frankfort-main), China, Greece and Trieste. The Com- 
mittee however came to a sound and commendable conclu- 
sion, saying that they were "deeply sympathetic with all 
these newly instituted Grand Lodges, and firmly believe 
that recognition by a majority of American Grand Lodges 
might be of moral support to them; yet, because of the 
present unsettled world conditions we hesitate to make 
recommendations, and would prefer to await action by our 
Mother Grand Lodge and other older Grand Lodges of the 
United States." 

P.G.M. J. Melvin Dresser includes a resume of our 1949 
Proceedings in his excellent Report of the Committee on 
Foreign Correspondence. He has been most kind both in 
allotment of space and in favourable comment on our activ- 
ities here. Our Ontario brethren may remember that at our 
last (1950) Annual Communication we had the pleasure of 
receiving as one of our distinguished guests, New Hamp- 
shire's Grand Master, and his Grand Marshall. 

M.W. Bro. Goldsmith was re-elected for a second year 
as Grand Master. 



NEW JERSEY— 1950 

163rd Annual— at Atlantic City— April 19-20. 

Grand Master — William F. House 

Lodges, 282 Membership, 92,375 Gain, 2,898 

In his Address the Grand Master says that "handicapped 
somewhat by failing health" he was, nevertheless, able to 
carry his year of service to a conclusion. We notice how- 
ever that he attended over 125 functions, so what would he 
have done if he had been in good health? There is a splen- 
did photo of M.W. Bro. House and his Officers of the year 
opposite page 100 in the Proceedings. 

The receipt is acknowledged of the Commission from 
our Grand Lodge appointing R.W. Bro. Adrien B. Hommell 
as our Grand Representative near the Grand Lodge of New 
Jersey. Later in the session this worthy brother was elected 
Senior Grand Warden. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 51 

M.W. Bro. Roger Keith of Massachusetts, in responding 
to the welcome extended to the visiting distinguished guests, 
spoke interestingly, and at some length, on his trip to Eng- 
land and Scotland in 1949. He had seen the 300-year-old 
records of Mary's Chapel Lodge, went into the old lodge 
room of Canongate Kilwinning, and then summed up his 
feelings in this way: 

"I feel that we have a great gift and privilege in our 
hands. We do not need to change a lot of things. Masonry 
in my mind is one organization where you can go into a tiled 
lodge room and meet a group of men who feel as you do; 
who have the same common interest; who believe in moral 
and ethical laws; who believe in certain property rights and 
so forth. Masonry has not changed. Its ancient landmarks 
may vary somewhat in different countries, but essentially 
there has been no change made in Masonry. It is a great 
strength to any community to feel that there is a group of 
men in the state and city and town who have a common 
purpose; who can go to a place and meet and find men of the 
same ideals, with the same courage. We are not trying for 
numbers. We are taking men who have made up their minds 
they want to be Masons because there is something in 
Masonry. We want our influence to be felt by the fact that 
when a man goes down the street, in the town or community 
where he lives somebody will say "That man is a Mason." 
He may not be the most prominent citizen in the state or 
town community, but the fact that he is a Mason, a lot of 
people feel, gives him a certain amount of strength, and 
I am sure that most of us feel that way." 

This quotable verse is from the Report of the Committee 
on Necrology: — 

God hath not promised skies always blue, 

Nor flower-strewn pathways all our lives through; 

God hath not promised sun without rain, 

Joy without sorrow, peace without pain. 

But God hath promised strength for the day, 

Rest for the labor, light for the way, 

Grace for the trials, help from above, 

Unfailing sympathy, undying love. 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations had seven requests 
for recognition to consider: the Grand Lodges of Greece, 
Hungary, Uruguay, Minas Gerais, Sao Paulo, Ceara and the 
United Grand Lodge of Germany. As to the last named, 
the report reads that "the Committee is happy at the op- 
portunity to cement this new tie and with delight recommends 
the extension to this Grand Lodge our fraternal recognition 
and exchange of representatives." As for the other six, 
the Committee recommended withholding of any action at 
present. The Report was accepted and concurrence voted 
in these recommendations. 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

On the morning of the second day, the 21st Annual 
Meeting was held of the Masonic Home and Charity Found- 
ation. The Report of the Trustees reads that at the close 
of 1949, those being cared for "numbered 71 men and 122 
women and waiting, waiting for perhaps three years for 
death to unlock the admitting door, were 59 more." In 
April 1949 the sum of $400,000 had been earmarked to build 
a new wing which would enable about 60 more to be accom- 
modated. The building was actually started in March 1950 
and necessary funds are in hand. The total assets of the 
Foundation, — investments, land, buildings, etc., now total 
over six million dollars. The operating cost is about on an 
average with similar institutions in other Jurisdictions, 
namely, approximately one thousand dollar's per guest per 
year. 

Included in the Report on Fraternal Correspondence is 
a summary of our 1949 Proceedings written by P.G-M. Walter 
S. Gray. All told, 64 are reviewed by the capable Com- 
mittee. 

Franklin E. Pellegrin of Newark was elected Grand 
Master. His father, a member of the same Craft Lodge, 
cast the vote on behalf of the Grand Lodge. 



NEW MEXICO— 1950 

73rd Annual— at Roswell— March 20-21. 

Grand Master— John W. Hall. 

Lodges, 59. Membership, 10,620. Gain, 493. 

The Grand Master gave emphasis to the practical side 
of the Mason's art by laying Corner Stones for one church 
and four lodge halls. 

The Oration by Bro. and General Hugh M. Melton, of 
the New Mexico Military Institute, is an allegory of the 
loom entitled "The Tapestry of Life." It is original in 
concept and beautifully expressed. Here is a paragraph or 
two: 

"One stands at the loom and wonders at the strength 
of the finished fabric. Threads vertical and threads hori- 
zontal, alternately woven, complete the cloth. Upon the 
proper timing and coloring will depend the pictui'e and upon 
its texture will depend its life. . . The Master of the 
loom is possessed with infinite patience, illimitable hope, 
and is omniscient. With what inconsolable sorrow must 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 53 

He accept inferior materials and somber colors for a tapestry 
which. He designed for a masterpiece. 

"But I would not have you feel that the tapestry of life 
is dominantly colored by great men and great works. As 
all great painters realize, a canvas may portray a dominant 
color by having a large area of one shade, or over the can- 
vas a large number of smaller areas of the same shade. 
So it is with the tapestry of life; strong personalities and 
history-making events have given glamour to a particular 
period, but the contributions of smaller personalities or un- 
noticed events will, in the aggregate, accentuate or neutral- 
ize or even entirely change the perspective. Many a man 
has gone unheralded to his grave, who possessed an element 
of greatness unknown to contemporary men of note. 

"The Master of the loom is designing the tapestry of 
tomorrow. You and I are the fibres of the thread of the 
tapestry. When we love honesty, truth and sincerity 
triumph; then the fibre which is each of us, is strong. To- 
morrow needs that spiritual strength as no yesterday re- 
quired it." 

The following, from the Grand Master's Address, is good 
common sense: 

"The main concern in all Lodges is non-attendance and 
lack of interest. What can we do to hold the interest of 
our brethi-en after they have been raised to the Sublime 
Degree of Master Mason ? 

"My best answer to the problem is the Fellow Craft 
Club: to organize to create more jobs for more men in 
Masonry. Tie them in with the institution by giving them 
something to do. Make them feel that they are a part of 
the Order by encouraging them to learn to confer degrees, 
instruct candidates, visit the sick, serve in the kitchen, 
greet visitors — there are many jobs waiting to be done if 
we would but plan and organize to work our brethren into 
them. 

"The Fellow Craft Club is not a cure-all for non-attend- 
ance and lack of interest but it will improve both of these 
problems under pioper leadership. I have seen it in opera- 
tion at close hand and feel that I know whereof I speak. In 
going about the jurisdiction, I have endeavored U> sell the 
plan to many Lodges, and several of them have made the 
start. I am hopeful that succeeding administrations will 
continue to lay stress on the idea. It is past the experi- 
mental stage: it is a proven product. 

"When the day arrives that every constituent Lodge 
organizes with a planned program to make use of the un- 
know talent that knocks at the inner door, not only will we 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

have a stronger Freemasonry but will have better-informed 
Freemasons." 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence is in line 
with many Committees of other Grand Lodges in this rec- 
ommendation: "Until the political situation clarifies, we doubt 
the wisdom of granting any further recognition to any for- 
eign jurisdiction. In all probability, less damage will be 
done by withholding recognition, rather than to withdraw 
recognition after it is once extended." 

The Reviews are, as in former years, by P.G.M. John 
Milne, and he has included his comment on our 1949 Pro- 
ceedings, for which we thank him. 

Charles A. Stevens, of Raton, was elected Grand Master. 



NEW SOUTH WALES— 1950 

Quarterly Communications, all at Sydney 
Grand Master — Frank McDowell 
Lodges, 757 Membership, 113,528 Gain, 6,351 

At the Quarterly Communication on September 14th, 
1949, the Grand Master reported that eight new Lodges had 
been consecrated. And what a fine tribute he paid to the 
late R.W. Bro. Kaglund who had passed over to the Great 
Beyond early in July 1949. "This was a Brother who 
served to the limit of his capacity in all offices of Free- 
masonry with which he was associated." The Board of 
General Purposes recommended grants to 48 hospitals and 
clinics totalling £1865-0. 

A History of the Grand Lodge of New South Wales had 
been completed, and brought up to date. In presenting one 
of the first copies to the Grand Master the author, R.W. 
Bro. Cramp, used these phrases: "It is accompanied by the 
goodwill and the high esteem and the genuine affection of 
over one hundred thousand trusty men and time." P.G.M. 
Maguire remarked: "History is the story of our victories 
and defeats; it is the story of what our forefathers met 
with and how they overcame their difficulties." A few 
minutes later this same Dr. Maguire, in pleading for 
adequate support for the Masonic Hospital, used this telling 
sentence: "Remember, brethren, that we, the doctors, are 
up against a fight with death and, as Kipling said, 'Death 
the Senior Practitioner, always wins in the long run.' Our 
job is to hold up his attacks as long as possible; to make 
the best terms we can for you on your behalf with death, 
and when he does insist on driving his attacks home, to see 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 55 

he does it according to the rules of civilized warfare." A 
motion to amend the Constitution, which would require every 
Lodge to pay into the Hospital Fund 3/- per member per 
year, was carried. 

At the Quarterly Communication on December 14th, 

1949, the Grand Master told his brethren that eight more 
Lodges had been consecrated. Here are some lines from 
his Address: "It is no use talking about our Masonic prin- 
ciples if we do not put them into practice. Our respon- 
sibility in the community is to stand for the things that are 
right and just. We have our freedom — freedom to choose 
our way of life. We should all feel very thankful that we 
are facing the future with such confidence. But it also 
brings to us the responsibilitv, to a greater degree than 
ever, to stand firmly in the community and assist with any 
good works that are possible; aiding those who need our 
help, and encouraging those who are deserving. So much 
has been provided for us, and with such bountiful seasons 
we should thank the Great Architect of the Universe con- 
tinually, and acknowledge with gratitude the blessings that 
have been showered upon us." 

At the Quarterly Communication held on June 14th, 

1950, we read that a further ten Lodges were consecrated, 
so the year was certainly one of progress in New South 
Wales. At this meeting they had the pleasure of greeting 
a very distinguished 'figure in the Craft, R.W. Bro. Sydney 
A. White, Grand Secretary of the United Grand Lodge of 
England. We particularly like this part of his message: 

"When an operative Mason decides to erect a building, 
he knows very well that he has got to comply with certain 
fundamental principles. He has got to apply the square, 
the level and the plumb rule to every stage of the edifice 
as it is in the process of erection. He knows that if he 
does not do so, before long, the whole building will be bound 
to collapse." 

"We as speculative Masons, use these three working 
tools, apart from others, to inculcate into our members many 
sound fundamental principles, some of which are Divine. 
Those principles have produced results which could scarcely 
be anticipated." 

"Masonry is rather like an invisible cord which binds 
together the souls of men. If that cord is ever frayed by 
any dissension or by depreciation of any of these principles, 
we shall get the same results as the physical building that 
has not been erected with the square, level and plumb rule. 
It will fall, just as that building will fall." 

"But there is something else in my opinion which is 
necessary. It does not matter what principles of architec- 
ture the builder employs, that will be of no avail unless 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

he uses the best material. He knows very well that he has 
a selection of all grades of materials, and if he wishes that 
building to remain firm over the natural life of a building, 
he has to select the best. There are hundreds and thou- 
sands of men living today who want to adopt the principles 
of Freemasonry, and there are plenty of others as you know. 
Unless we in Freemasonry sort out the whole of the material 
before us, and only use the best in this moral edifice we 
are trying to erect, then Freemasonry will disintegrate like 
the building that is not founded on architectural principles." 

In the Appendix of this volume one finds excellent 
reviews of other Jurisdictions and our 1949 Proceedings are 
given full coverage and kindly comment is made on our 
work. R.W. Bro. Walter T. Robb, of Orangeville, is the 
faithful Representative of New South Wales near our Grand 
Lodge. 



NEW YORK— 1950 

169th Annual— at New York— May 2-3-4. 

Grand Master — Frank M. Totten 

Lodges, 1041 Membership, 293,553 Gain, 5,322 

The Officer presiding at the opening of this Communica- 
tion needs no introduction to many Masons in Ontario 
for he it was who gave that wonderful address at our Grand 
Master's banquet in Toronto, July 1950. For those of our 
readers who were not fortunate enough to be there and hear 
him, we would suggest that they ask their Lodge Secretary 
for our 1950 Proceedings and then read pages 3 to 8 in the 
Appendix "A". His Address to his own Grand Lodge at the 
169th Annual is very choice. The Committee on the Grand 
Master's Address say that "it should be read in its entirety 
in every Lodge in the Empire State." 

He stresses the fact that "the measure of a life is not 
its income but its outgo" by quoting some verse which de- 
scribes the thoughts of one contemplating the Dead Sea, — 
that inland body of water fed by the clear snows of Mount 
Hermon and the rushing Jordan River, but which has no 
outlet. 

"O, sea that's dead, teach me 

To know and feel 
That selfish grasp and gi-eed 

My doom will seal. 
And help me, Lord, my best, 

Myself to give, 
That i may others bless, 

And like Thee live." 



FEATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 57 

The Grand Master had issued Dispensations for four 
new Lodges and as satisfactoiy progress had been made 
Charters were recommended. 

On the completion of the new Memorial Library building 
at the Pennsylvania Military College, the Grand Lodge of 
New York will dedicate one of the rooms which will be desig- 
nated as the "Masonic Room." A plaque will tell the 
students of future years that it is dedicated "to the youth of 
all nations and origins, as a manifestation of the universality 
of Masonry and its precepts of brotherhood." When these 
lads leave this school and go out into the world with a 
"favourable opinion preconceived of our Institution," it is 
certain that some of them will become zealous Masons and 
seiwe the Craft well, either at home or abroad. 

Our own M.W. Bro. James P. Maher and R.W. Bro. 
Ewart G. Dixon were the first to be introduced from a large 
number of visiting notables. 

These sentences are from the Report of the Trustees 
of the Home: "Every trend, circumstance, and opinion 
indicate that the Home is becoming a refuge for the aged. 
Applications for admission of children are few, but many 
apply who are old and have been made indigent by the 
prolonged and artificial inflation and the age to which many 
live. The increasing problems of the aged, applying for 
the protection of the Home, press more and more on the 
consciences of the Trustees who have to decide who is to be 
admitted." "The imperative need now is an Infirmary 
Building to take care of the many who are infirm. A cane 
or a crutch is not enough to help the one, with only a little 
life left, to take the last few steps before he falls and needs 
no help but God's." 

The Foundation for Medical Research is vigorously 
pursuing its chosen work in the fields of rheumatic fever 
and arthritis. Total disbursements for the year were over 
$367,000 as seven Universities and clinics received specific 
grants. The President of the Foundation, after reviewing 
the work of the first two years, says: "A door in a seemingly 
blank wall has opened just a little. A ray of light glimmers 
when before there was only darkness. What lies ahead ? 
We do not know. But the evidence to date gives us the 
right to hope — and the obligation to make certain, — that 
our research projects will be in a position to carry on their 
studies when an adequate supply of these new drugs, (coi-ti- 
sone and Acth,) becomes available." 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence and Rela- 
tions "had under consideration applications for recognition 
as regular Masonic Grand Lodges from fourteen such bodies" 
but awaiting a complete record, the Committee had not 
taken action and was not prepared to make recommendation 
as to any one of them. R.W. Carl G. Voight, who had just 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

returned from Germany, made a strong plea for the recog- 
nition of the United Grand Lodge of Germany (in Frank- 
fort) and the United Grand Lodge of Berlin and P.G.M. 
Martin Dietz of New Jersey also suggested sympathetic 
consideration of the latter body. However the views of 
the Committee prevailed and further study will be made. 

The Review prepared by the above Committee, under the 
chairmanship of P.G.M. Townsend Scudder, is largely in a 
topical form. Some of his topics are Growing Membership; 
the Stress on Masonic Education; Physical Qualifications; 
Masonry and Communism. Our doings are referred to 
under three headings. 

Richard A. Rowlands, a familiar figure at our recent 
Annual Communications, was elected Grand Master. George 
A. Barnewall, of the Brooklyn Trust Company was elected 
Deputy Grand Maste* 



NFW ZEALAND— 1949 

60th Annual — at Dunedin — November 23. 

Grand Master — Colonel Sir Stephen Shepherd Allen. 

Lodges, 342. Membership, 36,127. Gain, 1,712. 

Sir Stephen Allen was re-elected as Grand Master. Total 
funds and investments were reported as £296,634, which 
was the highest on record, as well as showing an increase 
of £9,238 over the previous year. 

The Report of the Annuity Board contains two sig- 
nificant recommendations. It was the feeling of the Board 
that "additional assistance could best be given by way of 
taking over mortgages on the homes of annuitants. There 
are many cases where the whole or major part of annuities 
is going in the repayment of principal, and the beneficiaries 
are therefore receiving very little, if any, direct benefit-" 
Careful consideration had been given to the establishment 
of a Masonic Home or Homes for aged masons, but they 
reported that "there is generally a fee-lin"- that institutions, 
no matter how well managed, are to be avoided if possible." 
Voluntary contributions to the Widows', Oi - phans' and Aged 
Masons' Fund for the year averaged 7s. 6d. per capita over 
the whole membership of Grand Lodge. 

There were six boys in residence at the Papakura Boys' 
Home and eighteen girls in the Kirkpatrick Masonic In- 
stitute. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 59 

Ten new Lodges had been Constituted and Dedicated 
by the Grand Master during the year. 

The Board of General Purposes had communicated with 
the United Grand Lodge of England asking for its approval 
and support in an approach to the remaining English Lodges 
in New Zealand to consider the transfer of their allegiance 
to the Grand Lodge of New Zealand. The Board hoped that 
something definite could be arrived at by the end of 1950. 



NORTH DAKOTA— 1950 

61st Annual— at Grand Forks— June 19-20-22. 

Grand Master — Harold S. Pond 

Lodges, 118 Membership, 13,672 Gain, 301 

The Grand Master favoured the creation of more Lodges. 
"There is certainly room for another Lodge at Grand 
Forks, Minot, Bismark and possibly Fargo. I am con- 
fident that there is a sufficient number of Masons carry- 
ing demits in these places to form the nucleus of a new 
Lodge, and the more men we have at work, the better 
Masonry will thrive." 

He had this to say regarding our Grand Lodges: 
"It is encouraging to have received requests from numer- 
ous Grand Lodges in foreign lands requesting fraternal 
recognition. Especially gratifying have been the reports 
from Grand Jurisdictions in Europe and even Asia, where 
Lodge properties have been largely destroyed and members 
scattered or put to death, before and during World War II, 
now reviving their interest, restoring their properties and 
going forward with renewed determination and vigor. 
Brethren, here is a sublime courage that puts to shame 
our own passive acceptance of the blessings that are ours. 
It is Masonry on the march and we do well to follow in 
their footsteps." 

Later in the day, the Committee recommended in favor 
of the recognition of the Grand Lodges of Ceara, the United 
Grand Lodge of Germany, and the Grand Lodge of China. 
Other cases were held over until further information could 
be gathered. 

P.G.M. Walter Murfin, as Fraternal Correspondent, 
has written reviews of 45 Jurisdictions. These reports 
are terse but extremely readable. Evidently our Pro- 
ceedings did not arrive in time for the winnowing. 

Harlow L. Walster of Fargo was elected Grand Master. 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

NOVA SCOTIA— 1950 

85th Annual — at Annapolis Royal — June 7-8. 

Grand Master — The Reverend George R. Thompson 

Lodges, 100 Membership— 12,588 Gain, 301 

We must give the Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. R. V. 
Harris, all due credit for having produced a well set up 
and comprehensive Proceedings for 1950. 

The Grand Master naturally refers to those outstanding 
events of 1949 when Nova Scotia celebrated its Bicentenary 
with such eclat. So that our readers may get the right 
perspective, it is a matter of record that Ensign Erasmus 
James Phillips was initiated in the first Lodge in Boston 
in November 1737, and that on his return to Nova Scotia in 
1738, he carried authority from Henry Price to form a Lodge 
at Annapolis Royal. This was the first Lodge of Masons 
in what is now Canada. 

M.W. Bro. Thompson, as the result of his year in office,, 
had several ideas for the betterment of the Craft. He 
advocated a revision of the Burial Service; the establish- 
ment of a suitable medal for metorious service; the prepar- 
ation of a dignified ceremonial for the installation of Grand 
Lodge officers; a Committee to study the DeMolay organ- 
ization. In his diary he recorded with particular pride a 
visit to Composite Lodge in Halifax which has a strong 
RX.M.P. membership. He proposed that it should be the 
official Lodge for men of that force in Nova Scotia. 

This verse from the conclusion of his Address is worth 
while; 

I'd like to think when life is done 
That I had filled a needed post, 
And here and there I'd paid my fare 
With more than idle talk or boast; 
That I had taken gifts divine, 
The truth of life and manhood fine, 
And tried to use them, now and then 
In service to my fellow men. 

There is an interesting Decision on page 44. A Lodge 
wrote to the G.M. and told him that they were having a 
Past Masters' Night and had 9 candidates for a degree. 
They asked if the 9 candidates could be obligated at one 
time by enlarging the A. so that all could kneel around it. 
The ruling was that but three could be taken at one time. 
Of course, here in Ontario, our rules are that each candidate 
must take a separate obligation. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 61 

There were seven Emergent Communications of the 
Grand Lodge during the year; five to constitute and dedicate 
proven Lodges and two to institute new Lodges. One of 
the latter deserves special note, namely the one at Goose 
Bay, Labrador. The project had been under way since 
1946 when there was a fair number of Masons at the R.C. 
A.F. base. Correspondence with the District Grand Lodges 
of England and Scotland in Newfoundland cleared the way 
and finally a Dispensation was issued by the G.M. of Nova 
Scotia in December 1949. The Institution took place on 
January 18, 1950, with 22 brethren on the roll. As their 
temporary meeting-place, they use the same chapel that is 
used for both Protestant and R. C. services. Twelve can- 
didates had been initiated in the first six months of working. 
In order to give the necessary instruction and advice to the 
Officers, it will be necessary for the G.M. or his representa- 
tive to fly some 700 miles from Nova Scotia to this new 
outpost venture. 

The Report of the Committe on Regalia was received 
and approved. As a result of their studies, definite 
standard designs and specifications had been prepared and 
these specifications are practically identical with those 
recently adopted here in Ontario. The use of undress 
regalia for Grand Lodge officers, past and present, is also 
approved- 
Past Senior Grand Warden A. G. Baillie presents the 
Reviews for the first time in topical form. His headings 
are State of the Craft, Aims and Relationships of the Craft, 
Our Homes, The Outer Door, Masonic Clubs, Visitations, 
Celebrations, Physical Qualifications, Decisions and Rulings, 
Communism, Masonic Education, Out of the Ordinary. 
Brother Baillie quite frankly admits that he prefers the 
former system, namely each Jurisdiction treated individually, 
but evidently there was a desire to condense the Reviews 
for economy in printing and also so see if the new system 
would encourage greater reading and study in the constit- 
uent Lodges. 

The speaker at the Annual Luncheon was our own R.W. 
Bro. R. C. Berkinshaw of Toronto. He took a subject, 
"Faith versus Fear," and delivered a stimulating message 
which we might well wish to reproduce here in full. He 
certainly proved himself a worthy representative of our 
Grand Master and our Grand Lodge here in Ontario. 

Harry M. Standish of Halifax was elected Grand Master. 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

OHIO— 1950 

141st Annual — at Cleveland October 20-21.

It was quite fitting that His Honor C. A. Carron, the 
City Manager of East Cleveland, should be tht one to 
welcome the assembled visitors to this Communication, as 
it was in Cuyahoga County that the first Lodge was estab- 
lished in Ohio in January, 1812 and Brother Carron was, 
in 1950, President of the Mayor's Association of that County. 
The attendance was noteworthy: 624 of the 632 Lodges 
being represented. Not many Grand Jurisdictions can tie, 
let alone beat, that mark. 

M.W. Bro. Pringle reported his action in authorizing 
$2500 to be sent to the Masonic Service Association to be 
used in ameliorating the plight of the Masons in Manitoba 
who had suffered by reason of the river flood early in 1950. 

He referred to a clandestine body of Co-masonry 
operating in Ohio, warning his brethren against visitors 
from such a body, and again stressing the importance of 
the correct registration and avouchment of visitors. 

M.W. Bro. Elmer R. Am was Grand Master of Ohio 
in 1935 and for some thirteen years he has been President 
of the Association which has been responsible for the 
direction and management of the construction of the mag- 
nificent George Washington Memorial on Shooters' Hill in 
Virginia, just a short distance out from the Nation's Capitol. 
The Grand Lodge approved a suggestion to have a marble 
bust of M.W. Bro. Arn sculptured and placed in the build- 
ing to commemorize his years of effort and service in the 
project. 

The Committe on Foreign Correspondence recommended 
that fraternal relations be established with the Grand Lodges 
of Greece and Vienna for Austria. Carried. 

The Masonic Home is quite some project. Those being 
cared for as at July 31, 1950, were 223 men and 241 women. 
The operating budget calls for something over $600,000 for 
the year. 

P.G.M. Carl Ellenwood (Grand Master in 1934) is the 
Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Correspondence 
which is responsible for the eighty pages of Reviews of 
Masonic doings in 68 Jurisdictions. The result is a well- 
written and easily readable synopsis and we are pleased 
to note that our 1949 operations are a part of this smwey.

James Joseph Hai-bage of Columbus was elected Grand 
Master. A banker by profession, a Presbyterian in religion, 
he now becomes Chief Ruler of the Craft in this second 
largest Grand Jurisdiction in the United States. 



OKLAHOMA— 1950 

42nd Annual— at McAlester— Feb. 14-16. 

Grand Master— Clay A. Babb. 

Lodges, 384. Membership, 73,329. Gain, 2,943. 

As the Roll Call of Grand Representatives was com- 
pleted, P.G.M. Abernethy asked to be permitted to explain 
the ceremony, particularly for the benefit of any who were 
attending Grand Lodge for the first time. He said, "I feel 
this is more than an idle ceremony. Masonry expresses 
itself in symbols and you behold here a symbol of the unity 
of Masonry. Those of us who are representatives of these 
other Most Worshipful Grand Lodges, stand here tonight 
in their stead as though the real representative of that 
Grand Lodge were here. Though divided into different 
States, different nationalities, tongues and races, Masonry 
does not divide. Masonry unites. It is highly significant 
in a world of chaos and disorder, that here within the 
quiet walls of this Temple we have a symbol of unity, a 
unity of brethren. God grant that it may ever be so." 

During his year M.W. Bro. Babb had laid Corner Stones 
for three new Temples and three schools. Two Lodge 
Rooms were dedicated, one new Lodge was Constituted and 
one Dispensation issued to form a new Lodge. 

Oklahoma certainly has some huge Lodges. One in 
Oklahoma City has 2,843 members; two others have 3,053 
and 1,447 respectively. Tulsa has one Lodge of 1,924 and 
one with 1,222 on the rolls. 

On the recommendation of the Committee on Fraternal 
Relations, the Grand Loja Simbolica do Rio Grande do Sul 
and the Grand Lodge of Panama were granted recognition. 
It was also decided to withdraw recognition previously ex- 
tended to the Grand Orient of Italy and in its place to 
acknowledge the Grand Lodge of Italy. 

Grand Orator L. L. Allen spoke timely on "Building a 
better world by building better character." Here are a few 
of his points: "In a day when many schemes for the im- 
provement of the social order clamor for attention and pose 
as panaceas for the ills of the world, we need to remind 



64 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

ourselves that everything rests back on integrity and sound- 
ness in personal character. Masonry has always advocated 
good government. Upon what is good government based? 
Immediately someone replies that it is based on our Nation- 
al Constitution. But in a very deep sense the foundation 
of our national government rests not upon the Constitution 
but upon the character of our people. . . The ground 
plan of a better social order is faith in God, for only such 
faith can impel men to labor and sacrifice to the attainment 
of goals that outrun the individual's space of life. Only 
faith in God can create character strong enough to build a 
world of happiness and neace." 

The Committee on Correspondence reviewed the Pro- 
ceedings of 49 Jurisdictions and we thank Brother Raymond 
E. Bivert for a very fine report on our 1949 Communication. 

Harold P. Cook, president of a Guthrie oil company, 
was elected Grand Master. 



OREGON— 1950

The name of our new Grand Representative near Oregon 
was announced — Brother Kenneth M. Robb of Baker, who is 
Secretary of Baker Lodge No. 47. This town is over near 
the Idaho border so he is really closer to us than if he 
were living on the coast. 

The Grand Master had held Occasional Communications 
of Grand Lodge for the Constituting of two lodges prev- 
iuosly working Under Dispensation, and for three Corner 
Stone Ceremonies. He recommended the establishment of 
additional lodges in two particular centres. This is 
indicative of a healthy trend, as there is definite opinion 
now in many Jurisdictions that the lodge of unwieldy 
membership does not afford sufficient opportunity for the 
young enthusiastic Craftsman to get to work. 

P.GM. Edward B. Beaty presented the Foreign Cor- 
respondence Report. The recommendations were: that 
relations be resumed with the Grand Lodge of Austria, the 
same as existed prior to 1938; that Columbia, Barranguilla, 
be recognized; that the United Grand Lodge of Germany, 
the Grand Orient of Italy, and Tamaulipas (Mexico) be 
recognized; and finally that the newly organized Grand 
Lodge of China be accepted as regular.

Plans are completed by the Centennial Committee for 
the celebrations commencing September 15, 1951. The 
Civic Auditorium, holding 4,400, has been booked for the 
occasion. 

P.G.M. Beaty also writes the Review of other Jurisdic- 
tions. He calls particular attention to the recent re-affirm- 
ations by England, Scotland and Ireland as to the Aims 
and Relationships of the Craft. He has set this document 
out in full and says "it would be well for every Mason 
to study these Aims and Relationships and follow them as 
a guide for his Masonic career." 

Worth Harvey of Eugene was elected Grand Master. 



PENNSYLVANIA— 1950 

Quarterly and Annual Communications all at Philadelphia. 

Grand Master — William E. Yeager. 

Lodges, 574. Membership, 229,670. Gain, 5,474. 

At the Quarterly Communication on March 1st, the 
Grand Lodge approved of a plan for the instruction of 
candidates by the use of authorized booklets, the subject 
matter of which would be approved by the Committee on 
Landmarks. P.G.M. Richard A. Kern made a report on 
this scheme at the June Quarterly and explained the method 
to be followed in presenting the four booklets to neophytes 
in the Craft. The first one will be given to the applicant 
for his reading in the waiting period between the date of 
of his approval by the Lodge and the time when he actually 
receives the E.A. degree. It is now some years since a 
similar series of booklets was successfully introduced by the 
Grand Lodge of Canada. 

Another scheme adopted for the general good of the 
Craft was a constitutional amendment limiting the number 
of candidates to be received in any one year. Lodges with 
600 members will be allowed to show not more than 10 
petitions on a monthly notice; those with 700 members, nine 
only; and so on up to those with 1100 members, where five 
will be the limit. 

Attesting the minutes of the March, June and Sep- 
tember meetings we note the signature of our friend of 
many years, the R.W. Grand Secretary, Matthew Gait, Jr. 
He had been a most welcome visitor on a number of occa- 
sions to our Grand Lodge in Toronto. At the Annual 
Communication on December 27th, the Grand Master reported 
the death of this valued official. For the long term of 



66 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

forty-three years he had been associated with the Grand 
Secretary's office, and for the last twelve of these he had 
been in charge. R.W. Bro. F. S. Hammann is his successor. 

Requests for recognition were received from the Grand 
Lodges of China, Greece, Vienna, Piaui, Israel, France, Para 
and El Potosi. All were referred to the Committee on 
Correspondence for consideration. 

This Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania has very substantial 
resources in the way of trust funds and financial holdings, 
and further bequests totalling over $890,000 were received 
during the year. The Report of the Committee on Finance 
shows total receipts of $2,327,359.85 for the year ending 
November 15th. That is almost big business. 

The Masonic Homes continue to look after a large 
family which at November 15th comprised 78 married 
couples, 122 unaccompanied men, 315 widows and mothers, 
46 boys and 16 girls — a total of 577. The Endowment 
Fund for these Homes stands at three and two-thirds million 
dollars. The following paragraph from the Grand Master's 
Address is quoted because it states succinctly one of the 
present problems of those Grand Jurisdictions which operate 
Masonic Institutions: 

"At the present time the Committee on Homes is 
handicapped in the admission of guests by the lack of 
sufficient hospital accommodations. This condition also 
exists in the Homes operated by other Grand Lodges and 
the opinion has become quite common that all future ex- 
pansion must provide hospital or infirmary space to care 
for invalids and semi-invalids respectively — a condition 
created by old age assistance and pensions which enable 
individuals to care for themselves until hospitalization 
becomes necessary. Of the 165 beds in our hospital ap- 
proximately 150 are filled with permanent hospital cases, 
leaving only 15 or 20 beds for those under observation and 
for use in case of emergency. While the moving of the 
nurses and attendants to the Nurses' Home will aid slightly, 
the need for at least 85 additional beds and the necessary 
auxiliary facilities is imperative." 

William E. Yeager was re-elected as Right Worshipful 
Grand Master.

Lodges, 98 Membership, 7,524 Gain, 425 

The Honorable Fernando Lopez, Vice-President of the 
Republic, was formally received and welcomed at the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 67 

opening. Though not a member of the Craft, he is 
evidently most well disposed towards it. "My friends, 
frankly, I have no vivid picture of the ceremonials and 
structures of your organization, but I am concious that your 
deliberations and efforts are not intended for your self- 
interest. They are motivated rather by your desire for 
the general welfare of the community and society." Perhaps 
there are some members of the Craft that do not have 
such a clear concept of the mission of Masonry. 

He continued: "The world is now split into two camps. 
There are, on the one hand, those who believe in freedom 
and the dignity of man; and on the other, those who believe 
in a supreme conquering state to which all men would be 

slaves I appeal to your high patriotism to place your 

country's welfare, and the well-being of your people over 
and above social, political or religious considerations, so 
that you and I can bequeath to succeding generations a 
heritage of peace, unity, justice and brotherhood." The 
speaker is held in high esteem by his countrymen. 

The Grand Master referred to his part in the estab- 
lishing of the new Grand Lodge of China. He had presid- 
ed over the Consecration Ceremonies and "was deeply 
thrilled and deeply touched by the solemn silence which 
prevailed throughout the whole ceremony. The spacious 
Hall of the Shanghai Masonic Temple was full to capacity 
and many brethren had to stay outside." It may be noted 
here that by the creation of this new Grand Lodge, the 
Philippines lost more than 600 Master Masons, — members 
of Lodges who were absorbed by the new Jurisdiction. 
Yet in spite of this loss, the Grand Lodge of the Philippines 
showed an increase in membership of 425. 

In telling of his visits to the constituent Lodges, the 
Grand Master refers to those in Yokosuka, Yokohama and 
in Tokyo in Japan. On the latter occasion, "we were 
received by our beloved and respected brother General 
MacArthur, who dedicated a lengthy portion of his valuable 
time to us." 

Two new Lodges were constituted, two dedications 
performed and one cornerstone laid. 

There was a bit of a flurry about dual membership 
which involved La Perla del Oriente Lodge No. 1034 which 
operates under a charter from the Grand Lodge of Scotland. 
The incoming Grand Master is to study the situation. 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations recommended 
in favor of the Gran Oriente D'ltalia, of which R.W. Publio 
Cortini is the Grand Secretary. This body is not recogniz- 
ed by Canada in Ontario. 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Reviews of Other Grand Lodges appear in monthly 
issues of "The Cable-Tow," which is the official publication 
of the G.L. of the Philippines. Some 16 jurisdictions were 
thus covered during the year. 

This verse is from the Report of the Committee on 
Necrology, author not given: 

What is death 
To him who meets it with an upright heart? 
A quiet haven, where his shattered barque 
Harbours secure till the rough storm is past? 
Perhaps a passage, overhung with clouds 
Just at its entrance; a few leagues beyond 
Open the kinder skies and milder suns, 
And seas pacific as the soul that seeks them." 

Clifford C. Bennett, born in the State of Georgia, an 
adopted son of the Island's Republic since 1922, was elected 
Grand Master. 



PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND— 1950 

75th Annual — at Summerside — June 28th 

Grand Master — Harry B. MacFarlane. 

Lodges, 15, Membership, 1,260. Gain, 20. 

This Communication was held in the newly-completed 
Lodge room of Hiram and Lebanon Lodge No. 3 which is 
the largest numerically in this Jurisdiction, 

The establishment of a Board of General Purposes was 
authorized at the previous Annual Communication, and one 
of the recommendations in their first Report is that the 
Constitution should be revised. As there were evidences 
of the lack of uniformity in the Work in the Lodges, they 
recommended that the standard ritual of the Grand Lodge 
of Nova Scotia be adopted. Carried. 

The Committee on Correspondence had received a re- 
quest from the new Grand Lodge of China, asking for rec- 
ognition, but the Committee could not recommend granting 
this at the present time. They gave a similar opinion re- 
garding the Grand Lodge of Israel. 

The Annual per capita dues from each Lodge, increased 
to a new rate of $1.25 for General Lodge purposes, 25c 
for the Benevolent Fund and 25c for the Orphan Fund — 
a total of $1.75 — were apparently carried without objection. 

Harold Randolph Carruthers, of St. Andrew's Lodge, of 
Montague, was elected Grand Master.

QUEBEC— 1950 

80th Annual— at Montreal— October 11-12 

Grand Master — L. F. Crothers 

Lodges, 99. Membership, 16,931. Gain, 320. 

To announce the demise of a valued servant of the 
Craft is at all times a sad duty, particularly so when the 
departed brother is one who has achieved more than usual 
distinction as was the case with P.G.M. Walter W. William- 
son who departed this life on the 4th April, 1951. 

M.W. Bro. Williamson was elected Grand Master of 
Quebec in 1917 and Grand Secretary two years thereafter. 
He had borne the duties of that office in exemplary manner 
ever since that date and was known far and wide as one 
of the great Masons of Quebec. The 1950 Proceedings do 
not carry the news of his death but they do record the fact 
that at the Annual Communication on October 11th, the 
Grand Master announced that M.W. Bro. Williamson had 
expressed a desire to retire from his office, and therefore 
R.W. Bro. R. W. Louthood, a Past Grand Senior Warden, 
was appointed to take up the mantle so worthily worn for 31 
years by his predecessor. M.W. Bro. Williamson was a 
frequent and always welcome visitor to our Grand Lodge 
Communications in Toronto. 

In his Annual Address, Grand Master Crothers empha- 
sised the need for courage and faith: "What the future 
holds, no one can say, but it does, I think, call for two 
outstanding qualities in all of us, Courage and Faith. 
The call goes out to every Mason as it came to Joshua of 
old, 'be strong and of good Courage; be not afraid, neither 
be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee 
whithersoever thou goest.' 

"Courage, however, is a blind thing unless it has an 
inspiration, an ideal. While as Freemasons we lay empha- 
sis on the importance of the individual, living calls for team 
play. One careless, selfish or indifferent player may 
wreck a team or at least lose the game." 

The Grand Chaplain, R.W. Bro. the Reverend A. B. 
Cassleman, of Hull, delivered a stirring address on "The 
Lesson of the Plumbline." He quoted that familiar 
passage from the writings of the Prophet Amos, chapter 
VII, verse 9, and then went on to explain how it came about 
that this shepherd who lived about 700 years before the 
Christian era, wrote his warnings and denunciations of 
the rich and privileged classes of his day and age. "For 
Masons, this part of the Bible is pertinent and profitable," 
he said. "It reminds us of God, the G.A.O.T.U., who 
has created the sun, moon, stars, the seas, and all things of 



70 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

this world. This God demands righteousness in the hearts 
of men, just as a careful workman is ambitious for per- 
fection in his handiwork. The plumbline suggests that 
we search our hearts and practice rectitude of conduct. 

"A Mason believes in the resurrection of the body and 
immortality of the soul. He believes in the control of 
God over all the forces of nature, over nations, and over 
the thoughts of men and peoples. A Mason believes in the 
wisdom of God's plan. He believes that everyone's life is 
a part of God's plan and that man finds happiness and 
peace and satisfaction in discovering that plan and fitting 
into it, as a stone is fitted into a wall." 

Chairman O. E. Stanton, of the Committee on Foreign 
Correspondence, reported on four requests for recognition 
which had been referred to them for examination and con- 
sideration. The recommendation regarding Italy was "that 
no recognition be given to any Grand Lodge in that coun- 
try." As to the applications from Argentina, Israel and 
China, it was the studied opinion of the Committee that 
these be held in abeyance for the time being. 

Considerable discussion ensued following a recommend- 
ation of the Finance Committee that there was a pressing 
need for additional revenue, and it proposed raising the 
existing per capita fee from $1.00 to $1.75, pointing out 
that this increase was warranted by the tremendous in- 
crease in all items in today's cost of living. The final vote 
approved to increase the per capita to $1.25 only. 

J. Wellington Buckland, of Ionic Lodge, Montreal, was 
elected Grand Master.

The closing meeting of the Masonic year 1949-50 was 
the Quarterly, held on June 7th, 1950, and at this gathering 
the Grand Master announced the death of the Deputy Grand 
Master, R.W. Bro. Walter Bruce Darker. He collapsed 
while taking part in the Installation Ceremony of one of 
the constituent Lodges. His successor in the office is the

Grand Master — Howard B. Rice 

Lodges, 44 Membership, 17,101 Gain, 421 

At the Semi-Annual Communication held in the after- 
noon of November 21st, 1949, the Committee on Foreign 
Correspondence made a report on nine applications for 
recognition which had been received from other Jurisdic- 
tions. 

Four state Grand Lodges of Brazil, namely, Ceara, 
Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul and Amazonas e Acre, 
were accepted as regular. Tamaulipas of Mexico also 
received a favorable decision. On the other hand, "no 
action" was counselled in the cases of Uruguay and the 
National Grand Lodge of Italy. It was also suggested 
that action be deferred as to Zu den Alten Pflichten and 
Spain (in exile.) Grand Lodge accepted the Report as 
rendered. 

M.W. Bro. Rice had the great pleasure of presiding in 
What Cheer Lodge No. 21 on January 6th and initiating 
his own son. He himself had been made a Mason in this 
same Lodge just 37 years before. 

Further action was taken on foreign relations at the 
Annual Communication. Both the United Grand Lodge of 
Berlin and the United Grand Lodge of Germany will now 
be recognized by Rhode Island. Action was deferred on 
five other Jurisdictions, — Italy, Greece, Spain and China 
(in exile,) and one in Brazil. 

Jethra Harrison Peckham, the Senior Grand Warden of 
1949, was elected Grand Master. The Deputy Grand 
Master of 1949, Warren A. Sherman, had died just two 
weeks before the end of his year in that office. The Grand 
Master's apron was presented to M. W. Bro. Peckham by 
his son Wor. Bro. William Peckham. Peckham Senior 
had not only initiated his son into the Craft, but had also 
installed him as Worshipful Master of his Lodge. 



SASKATCHEWAN— 1950 

44th Annual — at Saskatoon — June 21-22. 

Grand Master — William Herbert Moor. 

Lodges, 202. Membership, 16,301. Gain, 374. 

An impressive flag ceremony, where the flags of our 
country and that of our great neighbour to the south, were 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

presented at the Altar by two stalwarts of the R.C.M.P., 
marked the opening exercises. The United States flag used 
on this occasion was a gift of the Grand Lodge of Montana 
to their brethren and neighbours of Saskatchewan. The 
Immediate Past Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Fred C. Wilson, 
was received as the appointed representative of our Grand 
Lodge. Then we notice that the first name on the list of 
Distinguished Visitors is our own M.W. Bro. Charles S. 
Hamilton. More of him later. 

In his Annual Address, the Grand Master paid fitting 
tribute to two who had previously occupied the office but 
whose call had come during the year that had just passed. 
These were M.W. Bros. Robert Young and George M. Weir. 

M.W. Bro. Moor had laid Corner Stones for new Tem- 
ples at Conquest and at Macrorie. Twelve fifty-year gold 
buttons were authorized for presentation. Four Lodges 
were amalgamated into two for the general good of the 
Craft. 

When the Grand Representatives were received, M.W. 
Bro. W. B. Tate (G.M. in 1910), was given the honor of 
acting as spokesman for the group. He said in part, "I 
esteem it a great privilege to be here today as the Repre- 
sentative of the Grand Lodge of Ireland, having been 
brought to light in Masonry almost 59 years ago in 
Tyrian Lodge, No. 182, in Ireland." We would say, "Well 
done, Brother Tate." 

There is a paragraph in the Report of the Committee 
on the Condition of Masonry that contains a good sug- 
gestion. It reads, "V.W. Brother Glover (District No. 5, 
Aberdeen Lodge), is the backbone of the research and 
study group. He has a systematic programme whereby 
every brother, at one time or another, takes part in the 
work. He has fitted up a travelling case for the books, 
which is kept at his house so that the brethren can call 
and use the books seven days a week instead of having the 
books locked up in the Lodge rooms, to be thought of once 
a month." 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence, while 
acknowledging the receipt of requests for recognition from 
two Grand Lodges in Italy, recommended that the Grand 
Lodge of Saskatchewan "follow the course of the United 
Grand Lodge of England, with respect to Grand Lodges in 
Europe," and therefore they counselled no action in regard 
to Italy at the present time. They further stated that they 
did not have sufficient information to warrant recognition 
of the Grand Lodge of Israel, but they did commend the 
Grand Lodge of the Netherlands. All their report was 
adopted. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 73 

At the Annual Banquet on the evening of the first 
day, our own M.W. Bro. Chas. S. Hamilton was the prin- 
cipal speaker. His theme was the application of our time- 
honored principles to present day conditions. On the fol- 
lowing morning this worthy brother had conferred on him 
"the rank and distinction of an Honourary Past Grand 
Master of the Grand Lodge of Saskatchewan, in recogni- 
tion of eminence, ability and service rendered to the Craft." 
This marks the fourth time that Saskatchewan has singled 
out our Past Grand Masters of Ontario for this distinc- 
tion. M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop was so created in 1939, then 
M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel in 1947, and M.W. Bro. Frank A. 
Copus in 1949. 

In the appendix are printed a number of educational 
addresses that were given during the year. The printing 
of these very excellent papers undoubtedly will be of 
great value, not only to our Saskatchewan brethren who 
have access to these Proceedings, but also to any of our 
own brethren who may be fortunate enough to secure a 
copy. Some of the titles are: 

The W.M. and His Principal Officers, 
Towards a Better Social Order, 
The Humble Representative of King Solomon, 
Freemasonry and the Ideal of Democracy, 
That truly Masonic Ornament, Benevolence, 
The Apron, 

The Silence and Secrecy of Masonry, 
Historical Sketch of Lodge Canongate Kilwinning, No. 
2, Scotland. 

M.W. Bro. W. M. Martin has again produced an ad- 
mirable report on Foreign Correspondence. His foreword 
touches on current Masonic topics as seen from the Sas- 
katchewan look-out tower. Our 1949 Proceedings have 
been well read and well summarized. We thank him for 
his reference to our work. 

Francis Hedley Aulld, M.B.E., a native of Prince Ed- 
ward Island, a Deputy Minister of Agriculture in Saskat- 
chewan for well over two decades, and an outstanding 
citizen of Regina, was installed as Grand Master.

At the Quarterly Communication on May 4th, the 
Grand Master Mason told something of the trip to South 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Africa from which he had returned shortly before. "Three 
things impressed me particularly. First, there was the 
intense spirit of loyalty that exists there amongst all 
Scottish Freemasons to the Grand Lodge of Scotland. The 
next thing was their overwhelming kindness to all of us, 
and they did an enormous amount of arranging for our 
entertainment and to make it possible for us to see many of 
the things which we should not have done otherwise. Last, 
but by no means least — and I want to stress this — is the 
wonderful spirit of co-operation that exists between all 
the different Constitutions in that country. As you know, 
there are four different Grand Lodges operating there — 
the Grand Lodges of the Netherlands, England, Ireland 
and Scotland. Wherever I went the heads of the Sister 
Constitutions came to greet me with our own people, and 
I thought that showed they were actuated by the very 
highest qualities of Freemasonry, and it was also something 
which touched me very deeply and which I appreciated more 
highly than I can say." There are 126 Lodges holding 
warrants from the Grand Lodge of Scotland in South and 
West Africa. 

A visitor at the Quarterly Communication on August 
3rd was Brother W- E. King from Chile. He spoke of 
Lodge Roof of the World, Cerro de Pasco, No. 1094 S. C, 
which is some 12,000 feet above sea level. He explained 
that "in this very remote part of the world, the Masonic 
Lodge was for many years the only spiritual contact which 
the Brethren had." This is certainly an instance of "on 
the highest hills or in the lowest valleys." 

At the Annual Communication on November 30th Sir 
Malcolm Barclay-Harvey was re-elected as Grand Master. 
He and the other elected and appointed Grand Office-Bear- 
ers were installed and invested by Lord Galloway, and fol- 
lowing that ceremony, the Brethren then proceeded to the 
Music Hall, 54 George Street, Edinburgh, for the celebra- 
tion of the Festival of St. Andrew. In replying to the 
Toast to the Grand Lodge of Scotland, the Grand Master 
touched on Lodge membership. "Our total intrants for the 
year were 14,667. I do not know how far new intrants 
have resulted in any Lodges becoming of unmanageable 
proportions, but if any of them are beginning to feel that 
their jackets are rather tight upon them, let them think 
about setting up a Daughter Lodge. If Lodges become un- 
manageably large, they lose to a great extent the prin- 
cipal points of our Craft, and I would like to submit that 
there is a limit of size beyond which it is neither advisable 
nor indeed Masonic to go. It is very gratifying, therefore, 
to know that during the year we got 13 new Lodges, of 
which nine are overseas and four at home." 

The Depute Grand Master, the Rt. Hon. Lord Mac- 
donald, M.B.E., proposed the Toast of the Daughter Lodges, 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 75 

and we must quote at least part of his speech: "In these 
dark and louring days, there has never been a time when 
there was a greater need for fearless leadership and the 
setting- of a higher moral tone in this country than at 
present, and it is here that the Craft, and particularly the 
Daughter Lodges, can help in no mean way by accepting 
only the very best in the community in our Order and by 
seeing that a high moral standard is set in and outside the 
Lodge. What we are after is that the outer world, when 
they meet a man whom they have reason to believe to be 
a Mason, can say, 'Ah, that man must be a Mason. He is a 
first-class man. He is the best of his type and of his kind.' 
I therefore think that we should not hand on our mystei'ies 
and privileges any too lightly." 

The Report of Grand Committee included a Report 
from its sub-committee on Foreign and Colonial. A section 
of special interest is the Scottish opinion of the Grand 
Lodge of Uruguay. The Grand Secretary had written to 
that Grand Lodge asking for their position regarding cer- 
tain principles or a formula which had been adopted at a 
Conference of Grand Lodges in Montevideo in 1947. The 
specific points raised were whether the formula adopted 
at that Conference insisted on a belief in a Supreme Being, 
and further if the open V.S.L. was present in every Lodge. 
"No reply or assurance on these points has been received 
and in the absence of such, it is recommended that our 
Committee recommend Grand Lodge to withdraw recog- 
nition from the Grand Lodge of Uruguay." The report 
was adopted. 

From all of which the reader may conclude that this 
Grand Lodge of Scotland is a virile body, its constituent 
Lodges intensely loyal, and its reputation and influence in 
the four quarters of the globe, second to none. 



SOUTH AUSTRALIA— 1950 

Half-yearly and Annual Communications, both at Adelaide. 

Grand Master — The Hon. Mr. Justice Ligertwood. 
Lodges, 175. Membership, 20,335. Gain, 905. 

The Board of General Purposes had to draw the atten- 
tion of the Lodges to the sense of the fitness of things. 
"In 1929 it came under notice that in some Lodges, printed 
paper serviettes, displaying a design of the letter 'G' with- 
in a square and compasses, were being used at the festive 
board. Lodges were informed that the Board considers the 
letter 'G' of too great significance to Freemasons to be 
used for serviette purposes, and that such serviettes must 
not be used. Lately several instances have occurred where 



76 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the foregoing requirement has been contravened, and the 
attention of all Lodges is again directed to the prohibition 
of the improper use of the sacred symbol." What shall we 
say of ornamental ash trays, displaying the same emblem, 
that we hawe seen on the desks of some of our business 
friends ? 

Another nicety pointed out by the Board refers to the 
resignation of a Brother from his Lodge. "A Brother 
shall cease to be a member of any Lodge as soon as his 
written resignation shall have been received in open Lodge. 
It is the habit in many Lodges, when a Brother tenders his 
resignation, to 'accept' it, generally with some expression 
of regret. The motives of the Lodge are laudable but the 
language is incorrect. 'Acceptance' of a resignation im- 
plies a power to decline to receive it, which power does 
not exist. 'Record' is the exact phraseology." 

We also note a further indication of the way that the 
dignity of the Craft is upheld in this Grand Jurisdiction. 
There apparently is a Grand Lodge edict that there is to 
be no smoking when wearing regalia. That sounds almost 
as if one of their Grand Masters had been in one of our 
crowded ante-rooms just prior to an Installation. 

Your Reviewer is of the opinion that the above ex- 
cerpts from the South Australia Proceedings may serve 
to indicate not only how they do things elsewhere, but also 
may provide a topic for profitable discussion by our breth- 
ren here. 

Our Grand Representative there is V.W. Bro. Neil F. 
Hopkins, A.G.D. of C. We had the pleasure of meeting 
him at our Grand Lodge in Toronto in July, 1950. For 
their Reviews in the current issue of the Proceedings, 
Brother Hopkins has "written a fine summary of our 94th 
Annual. 

Having served as Grand Master for four years, M.W. 
Bro. Ligertwood retired and is succeeded by M.W. Bro. the 
Hon. Mr. Justice Abbott, B.A., LL.B., a Justice of the Su- 
preme Court at Adelaide. 



SOUTH CAROLINA— 1950 

213th Annual — at Columbia— March 8-9-10. 

Grand Master — James F. Risher. 

Lodges, 285. Membership, 41,581. Gain, 2,323. 

A very fine religious service ushered in the opening 
day's work of this historic body. Well-deserved space is 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 77 

devoted to the Address of the Reverend H. Dwight McAl- 
ister, the Grand Chaplain. These are gems from his dis- 
course: 

"The troubled and uneasy world of today, as never 
before, needs men of vision to direct its destiny. We need 
men who can see victory in defeat, success in the impossible 
and possibilities in seemingly barren rocks. It is to the 
men who can see horses and chariots of fire where others 
see only the enemy's host, to whom belong the laurel 
wreaths. But to those who cannot see these higher possi- 
bilities, there is but the alternative of groping in the gloom 
of their own perishing state, for where there is no vision 
the people perish." 

"Not only do we need a vision of God in our business 
and industrial life, but we need a vision of God in our 
national life. Not only do we need a vision of God but 
we need a vision of the value of a human soul. Human 
life has been divorced from the thought of Divinity. We 
treat life as though it belonged entirely to us. Only when 
death comes do we think seriously of God and the divinity 
in our lives. Religion becomes a life insurance policy 
rather than a life policy. We say that our souls have in- 
finite value and yet there is nothing that men treat with 
such little value as this precious bit of divinity within 
them." 

"If we do not value our own soul, we will value no one 
else's soul. The man who sells his soul for the love of 
money perishes, as did Judas. The man who barters his 
soul for honor and fame perishes, as did King Saul of old. 
And the one who sells his soul for the pleasures of life must 
go the way that Esau went-" 

"But having gained a vision of God and a vision of the 
value of the human soul, there remains one more vision 
which must become a part of ourselves. It is a vision of 
the possibilities of a union of these two values, namely, a 
vision of what God and man can do together. Arise then 
my Brothers; arise above the perishing state of a visionless 
life, lift up your eyes and let your soul catch a vision of its 
own value. Look about you, and let your soul catch a 
vision of service." 

His Excellency the Governor of South Carolina wel- 
comed the Craft to the State Capital, and it is cheering to 
hear woi'ds such as these from men in high places: "I am 
proud to be a Mason. I am proud because of the high prin- 
ciples for which this great organization stands; an organ- 
ization that believes in God and I know that I am looking 
at a group of men who are square, honest men, who have 
reverence for God, men who believe in a Supreme Being. 
I am proud to be a member of this organization because it 



78 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

stands for the improvement of the individual. I am glad 
to be a member of this organization because it stands for 
justice; for what is fair and honest and just." 

Grand Master Risher continued his busy rounds. He 
officiated at Special Communications of the Grand Lodge 
for four Consecrations, six Dedications and three Corner 
Stone Ceremonies. He also convened an Occasional Lodge 
"for the purpose of making Major General George H. 
Decker, the C-O. at Fort Jackson, a Mason-at-sight." 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations recommended 
that recognition be extended to the United Grand Lodge of 
Germany and the Grand Lodge of the State of Nuevo Leon, 
Mexico. Carried. 

The Review of Symbolic Freemasonry was prepared, 
as in former years, by P.G.M. Henry F. Collins, who has 
added to his duties the office of Assistant Grand Secretary. 
Our 1949 Proceedings are included in his comprehensive 
survey. 

Homer M. Pace, a top executive of a big Charleston 
utilities corporation, was elected Grand Master. 



SOUTH DAKOTA— 1950 

76th Annual — at Custer — June 13-14. 

Grand Master — Harry H. Margolin. 

Lodges, 168. Membership, 18,462. Grain, 506. 

The gavel used by the presiding officer at this session 
was one which had been given to the Grand Master by the 
Lodges at Yankton just after he had been elected to office. 
It is fashioned from Black Hills wood and ornamented with 
Black Hills gold. M.W. Bro. Margolin brought it to Tor- 
onto with him in 1949 and arranged for M.W. Bro. T. H. 
Simpson to wield it when opening our Grand Lodge that 
July. It has been similarly used in the Grand Lodges of 
Texas, Illinois and Virginia and at various functions in 
other jurisdictions. 

The Foreign Correspondent is the Reverend David 
Graham, and to put us right he quotes the By-law which 
ordains that "the Committee on Foreign Correspondence 
shall consist of one member." Just in case someone might 
suggest a larger number, he reminds his readers of the sage 
observation of a former Lord Provost of Glasgow who said, 
"the best committee is a committee of two with one 
absent." 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 79 

The first part of Brother Graham's Report deals with 
applications for recognition. He advocated that Nuevo 
Leon of Mexico, a jurisdiction with 39 Lodges, be approved. 
Ceara of Brazil had been recommended at a previous An- 
nual Communication. As to Rio Grande do Sul, China, 
the United Grand Lodge of Germany and the National 
Grand Lodge of Italy the action he suggested was that 
these four all be held in abeyance. Grand Lodge concurred 
in all his recommendations. 

Brother Graham's review of other Grand Jurisdictions 
is written in topical style and offers some interesting side 
lights, as witness his comment on recognition. "One thing 
we have to keep in mind is the fact that a Grand Lodge 
unworthy of recognition this year, may purge itself just 
as an individual Mason may gain freedom from a former 
vote of expulsion, or just as a clandestine Mason may be 
'healed' by the gracious act of a Grand Master. Even clan- 
destine Lodges and Grand Lodges need not suffer forever 
under such stigma. Many a rebellious group, having placed 
themselves beyond the pale, find a ready welcome when 
they return to the bosom of regular Freemasonry. Just as 
every man, no matter how degraded, has value because God 
has placed the guinea-stamp of manhood upon him, so every 
renegade* Mason has the possibility of reform ever before 
his eyes." 

Neil C. Dewhurst, of Aberdeen (the one in South 
Dakota, of course), was elected Grand Master. 



TASMANIA— 1950 

Annual Communication — at Ulverstone — February 25. 

Grand Master— Gerald E. Wall. 

Lodges, 60. Membership, 6,480. Gain, 190. 

We lift these remarks from different sections of the 
Board and other Reports: "Expenditui'es on refreshments 
(in the Lodges) averaged 24% of income. This appears, 
unfortunately, to be on the increase." "In all, 26 widows 
of deceased brethren and eight brethren received help dur- 
ing the six months in the total of £982. 16s." Quite a 
respectable effort for a Jurisdiction of this size. "Huon 
Lodge (112 members) contributed £13, 2s., 3d. by means 
of the collections that are taken during the Charity Charge 
to candidates.". "Regaining the matter of the apron being 
worn outside the jacket when a dinner jacket or ordinary 
suit is worn, this is gradually finding favor with the breth- 



80 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

ren, and no doubt will, as time goes by, become the gener- 
ally accepted practice." "Correct evening dress is the 
white bow with both dinner jackets and evening dress. The 
Australian Conferences had laid this down on several occa- 
sions and Lodges in this State had been informed several 
times that the white, and not the black bow is correct for 
Masonic purposes." 

This thought is from an Address delivered at the Con- 
secration of Lodge Beltana. "One of the big laws of 
Nature is that which provides preservation by means of 
liberation. Lock up the animals in close confinement and, 
ere long, they must become extinct. Preserve all the grain 
from the fields, and ere long it will become useless and dis- 
appear. To save we must sow, to preserve we must liber- 
ate. Masonry is to be preserved, not only in the archives 
of a Lodge, but as it is expressed through the lives of its 
members. If it is to live, it must be lived." 

Our Grand Representative is R-W. Bro. H. A. Wilkin- 
son, the Grand Secretary, and in the appendix to the Pro- 
ceedings he gives hearty commendation to our work here 
in Ontario as recorded in our 1949 Proceedings. He closes 
his write-up with, "I would like to say how interested I 
have been in reading the Annual Report referred to, and to 
express the hope that the Grand Master, Grand Officers 
and Brethren of that great jurisdiction will enjoy great 
joy and good health in the work of our beloved Craft." We 
assure Brother Wilkinson that we do appreciate and thank 
him for his greeting that comes to us from that far quarter 
of the globe. 

M.W. Bro. Wall was re-elected as Grand Master. 



TENNESSEE— 1950 

136th Annual — at Nashville — January 25-26. 

Grand Master — Lucien Campbell Connell. 

Lodges, 375. Membership, 64,875. Gain, 3,623. 

Tennessee is to be complimented on the attendance at 
the Annual Communicaiton: ninety-eight per cent of the 
Lodges were represented, — a very high figure for a Juris- 
diction of this size. 

It was the Grand Master's opinion that the Craft was 
in good shape. "I am convinced that the membership is 
more willing, more ready for the work of Masonry, eager 
to advance the cause. I feel the members are eager to 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 81 

learn more about the cause and effect of Masonry, to learn 
not only the ritualistic work but the real meaning of Mason- 
ry and how they, as individuals, can accomplish the many 
lessons taught within the confines of our Lodges." Later 
he says, "We are happy to report that the attendance at 
district meetings was the greatest in history. It was my 
pleasure to attend all thirty of these." Seven Lodges cele- 
brated their One Hundredth Anniversary. One new Lodge 
was instituted. 

The Grand Master's remarks on charity are well worth 
reading. "It is wonderful to be able to render a service to 
those in distress, but there are so many of us that think 
Charity is spelled m-o-n-e-y. Surely the main pillar of the 
Temple is Charity, that is 1-o-v-e, and how pleasant it is to 
practice charity. We should ever remember that all of 
wealth and earthly goods are only loaned to us by God 
our Father and we are His almoners to dispense it char- 
itably." M.W. Bro. Connell winds up his Address by de- 
claring, "I have had the best year of any Grand Master of 
Tennessee for many years past." 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence success- 
fully recommended the recognition of the regular Grand 
Lodge of Italy. Brother Wallace P. Douglas, as Chairman, 
begins the interesting Foreword to his reviews thus: "It 
is again our privilege to invite you to visit with us, via the 
printed pa*?e, the Annual Communications of some 70 or 
more Grand Lodges throughout the Masonic domain, whose 
Lodges are dispersed all over the world." He makes a 
good conductor for that tour. Our 1948 Communication is 
one of the above number. 

Elbert Carlton Coleman, of Oneida, a railroad executive, 
was elected Grand Master. 



UTAH— 1950 

78th Annual — at Salt Lake City — January 23. 

Grand Master — Newell Beeman Dayton. 

Lodges, 27 Membership, 5,897. Gain, 112. 

The Grand Master, surveying the condition of the Craft, 
had this to say: "Masonry in our Jurisdiction is sound and 
virile. Men of quality are being added to our rolls. Our 
membership now stands at the highest in our history. The 
constituent lodge officers have taken advantage of the 
healthy volume of degree work to perfect themselves in the 
ritual and present it with credit. Attendance has been 



82 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

gratifying at regular and degree meetings. Finances of 
our lodges appear to be in capable hands and the reports 
show that the necessary reserves for charity, building or 
adverse conditions are being maintained or built up." 

M.W. Bro. Dayton greatly appreciated the privilege 
which had been accorded to him of laying the corner stone 
of a new building at Westminster College, and then at a 
similar but perhaps more picturesque function at the new 
International Unit of Shriners' Hospitals for Crippled 
Children in Salt Lake City on June 18, 1949. Photographs 
of both of these scenes are shown in the Proceedings. 

He stresses Masonic Education. "A vital activity in 
every lodge should be its inspiration of new members 
through personal discussion preceding each degree. Those 
lodges with a special orientation committee to instruct 
petitioners in the fundamentals, background and teachings 
of Masonry, have shown tangible results in petitions, at- 
tendance and activity. It might be a suggestion that Breth- 
ren recommending a candidate should be made personally 
responsible for his participation in all lodge activities during 
the period of one year." 

We can quote in part only from the very fine Report 
of the Committee on Necrology: 

"Great Master, nerve and guide. Before us lies dawn 
and the new day. Let us ne'er forget Thy truth as living 
bread. Press to our parched lips Thy cup of wine that 
speaks of sacrificial life. So shall we strengthened be to 
do and dare and live again." 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations had carefully 
considered two applications for recognition, the United 
Grand Lodge of Germany and the Grand Lodge of the State 
of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Grand Lodge approved. The second- 
named body has its seat at Monterrey and has under its 
allegiance 46 lodges with some 3,000 members. 

In his Report of Fraternal Correspondence, Brother 
Edward Gai^e Titus gives a very fine reading of our Pro- 
ceedings of 1949. He expresses appreciation for our Re- 
views of that year, and commends both our Chairman's 
Foreword and the work of your reviewer. We thank him 
for his kind words. 

John Stark, of Ogden, was elected Grand Master. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 83 

VERMONT— 1950 

157th Annual — -at Burlington — June 14-15. 

Grand Master — Arthur H. Sprague. 

Lodges, 103. Membership, 18,492. Gain, 140. 

His Excellency the Governor of Vermont, Brother 
Harold J. Arthur, graced the opening session with his 
presence and spoke appreciatively of the good work being 
done by the Order. 

Our Quebec brethren appear to enjoy most friendly 
relations with the brethren of the Green Mountain State. 
Of course there is nothing more than that geographical line 
of the 45th degree parallel to divide them, so we cannot 
be surprised when we read that St. Andrew's Lodge No. 53, 
G.R.Q., accompanied by their Grand Master, Canon Crothers, 
visited Vermont Lodge No. 18 at Windsor and exemplified 
their work before a gathering of 1200. Not a few of the 
visitors came from neighboring' New England States. 
Another event considerably out of the ordinary was on 
January 19th at Hardwick when five blood brothers of the 
Atkins family were all raised to the M.M. degree in Caspian 
Lake Lodge. 

The closing paragraphs of M.W. Bro. Sprague's Address 
at once compel interest and stimulate thought. Hear him: 
"One thing is very sure. If civilization is to withstand 
another struggle such as World War II, there can be only 
one possible means of survival, and that is in the develop- 
ment of unfaltering, unfailing and unremitting faith; faith 
in something besides an industrial assembly line and an 
undeveloped hydrogen bomb. It will have to be faith in 
a power greater than any force on earth, and faith to believe 
that that power is omnipotent and supreme." 

"Freemasonry has its own interpretations of the prin- 
ciples of morality. It has its own ideas of human conduct. 
It has its own concept of service and its ideals of brother- 
hood. It has its own solution for the great mystery of 
life, and in the closing moments of the final presentation of 
its teachings it gives us the unequivocal answer, FAITH. 
Faith in one ever-living and true God; transcendent and 
supreme, sovereign and majestic; the Great Architect of 
the Universe." 

Here is a good thought from the Report of Grand 
Lecturer Wheeler. "Masonry, like any other organization 
or institution, cannot stand still: it either continues to 
progress or it slips backward. Although founded upon 
the great principles of friendship and brotherly love, these 
good intentions alone are not its success. It has only 
survived because there have always been those God-fearing 



84 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

men who have been willing to put these intentions into 
positive acts and thus insure conditions under which Masonry 
could live." 

The Grand Secretary, P.G.M. Aaron H. Grout, has this 
to say regarding membership statistics: "We are, of 
course, feeling the impact of our automatic suspension, but 
the loss is less than expected. All in all, the wisdom of the 
new regulation seems to be proved. It has, I believe, 
resulted in the collection of a good many dollars which other- 
wise would have been lost to our Lodges." 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence reported on 
applications from seven jurisdictions asking for official 
recognition. Two of these were recommended, — the Grand 
Lodge of Greece and that of Ceara in Brazil. The Com- 
mittee felt that the requests of the United Grand Lodge of 
Germany and the Grand Lodge of China should be held in 
abeyance. Those of Trieste, Israel and Spain in Exile 
failed to gain the Committee's approval. Grand Lodge 
concurred. 

The concluding sentence of M.W. Bro. Aaron H. Grout's 
Foreword to his Reviews runs, "May you, each and every 
one, who compliment this scribe by reading his report, find 
therein something to repay your time and effort." Well, 
a great many will probably read his report with benefit 
and enjoyment, but they probably will not take the odd 
moment to let Brother Grout know. We are in the happy 
position of being able here to express our appreciation and 
to recommend its reading to others. The Proceedings of 
Canada in Ontario for 1949 are one of the group of 70 which 
are admirably presented, and we sineei-ely thank the author 
for his very kind reference to our work. 

Harold E. Brand of Montpelier succeded to the high 
office which M.W. Brother Sprague had so acceptably filled 
for the previous two years. 



VICTORIA— 1949 

Grand Master — R. A. Rowe. 

Lodges, 661. Membership, 81,766. Gain, 5,411. 

The first order of business at the Quarterly Communi- 
cation held in Melbourne was the Report of the Board of 
General Purposes. The names of the recipients of the two 
King Edward VII Memorial Scholarships were announced 
as well as the twenty that had been awarded scholarships 
by the Committee of Management. Further educational aid 
will be possible in the future because the Board had received 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 85 

£5,000 to establish a "Barrow" scholarship in memory of 
the Grand Secretary of 1910-1921. 

The Report of the Freemasons' Hospital revealed that 
for the calendar year of 1948, a total of 1,266 patients were 
admitted and 1,217 operations performed. The average daily 
occupancy was 61. 

Grand Master Rowe was installed in office and in one 
part of his inaugural speech he says: "I remember going 
into my Lod°-e for the first time at my initiation and there- 
by proclaiming my belief in God and my trust in Him. I 
believe that the time has arrived when all men, and certainly 
all Freemasons, should reaffirm that belief and reassert 
their faith in the Great Architect of the Universe. I, as 
Grand Master, on the occasion of this Diamond Jubilee of 
the Grand Lodge of Victoria, reaffirm my belief in Almighty 
God and reassert my faith in the G.A.O.T-U. Will you, 
my brethren, join me in that reaffirmation? If so, will 
you please rise with me, and with the sign of fidelity, re- 
assert those things that we once believed, following which 
will you join in the first verse of 'Guide me O Thou Great 
Jehovah' as a prayer." Done. 

Our Representative, P.D.G.M. Walter Kemp, presented 
greetings on behalf of the Grand Lodge of Canada and the 
other Grand Lodges which were represented at this Instal- 
lation Ceremony. 



VIRGINIA— 1950 

172nd Annual — at Richmond — February 14-18. 

Grand Master — Alfred Douglas Smith, Jr. 

Lodges, 329. Membership, 56,757. Gain, 2,313. 

At the beginning of the 1950 Proceedings there appears 
a "thumb-nail sketch of the organization" of this Grand 
Lodge. We read that there were nine chartered Lodges 
operating which had received their wan-ants from the three 
Grand Lodges of the British Isles. After preliminary Com- 
mittee meetings, the new Grand Lodge held a Convention 
on October 13th, 1778, and R.W. John Blair, a Past Master 
of Williamsburg Lodge, was elected the first Grand Master 
of Masons in the Commonwealth of Virginia. 

The Committee on Higher Education reported a highly 
successful year. Four young men and five young ladies, 
sons and daughters of deceased Master Masons, whose early 
education had been received while in the Virginia Masonic 
Homes, had enrolled in seven different colleges in the State. 
A budget of $7,000 was requested to continue their courses. 



86 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

In concluding his Address, the Grand Master made an 
eloquent appeal for faith in Masonry. We quote: "We 
should be thankful that God willed that we should live in 
such challenging times. We are in the midst of a social 
and political revolution which may be appraised by future 
historians as another renaissance. We are observing many 
of the ancient landmarks of life crashing and compromised. 
We are accepting dogmatically in practice that which a 
quarter century ago was considered radical theory. Any 
notion of a return to the conservatism of a quarter century 
ago seems but wishful thinking. To maintain an equilibrium 
between extremes, seems to be the logical course. 

"Freemasonry, the great paradox, unchanging in its 
fundamentals and yet so flexible in its approach that it has 
helped meet the needs of changing generations, will not fail 
posterity during this interesting period of the world's his- 
torv. In truth, we do not always understand all that is 
hannening about us, but we believe that the Grand Architect 
of the Universe, upon whose Trestle Board has always been 
drawn the designs which have brought order out of chaos, 
even in the beginning, will continue to direct the destinies 
of men into the channels of progression which are agreeable 
to His divine plan. 

"The world needs such an organization as ours more in 
this day than in any other, and it would a^ear that those 
of us who are the leaders should see to it that only moral 
men with courage, character and a sense of responsibility 
should be admitted into our sanctuaries, and no longer 
should we provide a haven for those seeking shallow enter- 
tainment, or to satisfy a personal vanity to belong to some- 
thing. We should not only revert to the high selectivity 
of former years, but also by meticulously planned education- 
al programs, endeavor to permeate the beings of our ini- 
tiates with an understanding of our basic philosophy, chal- 
lenging their lives with the great opportunity to transmit 
to posterity the blessings which have been willed us by our 
noble fraternal ancestry." 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence had received 
an application for recognition from the Grand Oriente 
D'ltalia "but because of the unsettled state of affairs in 
Italy" they recommended deferment for at least one more 
year. The application of the Grand Lodge of Rio de Janeiro 
received favorable consideration, but regarding the Grand 
Lodge of Tamaulipas, Mexico, the Committee again request- 
ed a delay of a year in order that additional information 
might be secured. 

Past Grand Master J. N. Hillman, who is also the Grand 
Secretary, has compiled an admirable Review of Proceedings 
which includes our 1949 issue. This worthy Brother, along 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 87 

with the Grand Treasurer, R.W. Bro. Wm. S. Pettit, was a 
welcome visitor to our 1950 Grand Lodge in Toronto. 

Enoch Dorron Flowers, of Laurenceville, was elected 
Grand Master. 



WASHINGTON— 1950 

93rd Annual — at Tacoma — June 20-22. 

Grand Master — Henry C. Heal. 

Lodges, 272. Membership, 61,870. Gain, 2,382. 

His biographer says of M.W. Bro. Heal that "his year 
as Grand Master was one of the happiest ever experienced 
by Grand Lodge, and it can be looked upon as a year of 
great sendee and growth." M.W. Bro. Heal was born 
in Hampshire, England, and came out to America as a 
young man of 21. 

In Washington they either have their Grand Masters 
very young or the climate there must be especially propitious 
as no less than 19 are recorded as present; one of them, 
Ford Q. Elvidge, is our Grand Representative there. 

That part of the Report of the Committee on Corre- 
spondence dealing with questions of recognition, recom- 
mended that fraternal relations be set up with the Grand 
Lodge of the State of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, and with the 
Grand Lodge of China. Grand Lodge concurred. 

The Senior Past Grand Master, Asa H. Hankerson, 
(elected in 1913,) wrote saying that he could not attend 
due to illness. We would like to quote part of his letter. 
"I shall be with you in spirit throughout the Session, and, 
sitting in my old armchair, I shall add my supplications to 
those of the Grand Chaplain as he asks Divine Guidance of 
the deliberations of Grand Lodge." 

"My old arm chair was hallowed by my father and ray 
mother for years before I was born, and as the sands in 
my hour-glass are nearing exhaustion, as I sit in that chair, 
I lay aside my reading very often to pour out my thanks 
to my Maker for the many blessings he is bestowing on 
me, for the kindness I receive on every hand — from friends 
and from strangers, on the street, in the shops, and in the 
meeting places. One of the compensations for getting old 
is the clearer appreciation of the almost universal spirit of 
kindness in the world." What an ideal way to face the 
setting sun! 



GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 



P.G.M. Loomis Baldrey presents a full sheaf of Reviews 
and about seventy jurisdictions are covered. Our 1949 
Annual Communication is one of these. His Foreword is 
brief but carries a thought. "Fortunately, Masonry is in 
good shape in practically all of the world. There is no 
dissension or misunderstanding- among any of the generally 
recognized jurisdictions. If we are facing a greater tax 
upon our faith in the teachings of Masonry, Masonry was 
never better prepared to meet the test." 

Gail Huhn of Bellingham was elected Grand Master. 



WESTERN AUSTRALIA— 1950 

Quarterly Communications and the Annual at Perth on May 18. 

Grand Master — Dr. James Sykes Battye, B.A., LL.B., D. Litt. 

Lodges, 243. Membership, 17,540. Gain, 1,011. 

At the Quarterly on August 18, 1949, it was recommend- 
ed, and approved, that the National Grand Lodge of Colombia 
at Barranquilla be recognized as regular and fraternal 
relations established. 

The Golden Jubilee of this Grand Lodge, (50 years,) 
was marked by a Communication before a capacity audience 
in the Winthrop Hall of the University of Western Australia 
at Perth on May 23rd, 1950. Grand Masters, or their 
envoys, were present from the other four jurisdictions of the 
Commonwealth as well as from Tasmania and New Zealand. 
Dr. Battye was also celebrating his fifty years in Masonry 
and he was installed and proclaimed Grand Master for a 
fifteenth term. The Installing Master, M.W. Bro. J. A. 
Klein, eulogized him in these words: "He is a brother whose 
intellectual resources, whose faculty for organization, whose 
mental thoroughness, whose habits of discipline and whose 
versatility caused him to be saught after for guidance and 
support. He became the dominant figure in many move- 
ments of a charitable, philanthropic, educational and cultural 
nature, and his name is writ large in the history of many 
benevolent institutions in this State. He has been identified 
with this Grand Lodge for most of 50 years; was elected 
Grand Master in 1936 and came to the office with a full 
life's span of wholesome, fruitful and cultural experiences; 
an intimate knowledge of the citizenry of this State, and 
a faith in Masonry unshaken by the dilemma of modern 
international ideals. He has enjoined us to cultivate an 
alert expectancy, a stout passiveness, and a mind well 
garnished with the lofty ideals of the Craft. He has always 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 89 

urged for individual integrity, a re-dedication of Masonry 
and a faithful practice of its ideals in everyday life." 
Such is the tribute of his brethren to this sterling person- 
ality, one 'which any of us would fervently desire to 
deserve. 

Part of the Grand Master's reply to this reads: "No 
man achieves success without deriving a great deal of 
pleasure and satisfaction from striving after an ideal. We 
are all placed on this earth and pass through it but once. 
It is our duty to do what we can to make life sweeter for 
everyone during that time, and then perhaps we may go 
forth to that Grand Lodge above with the satisfaction that 
we have at least tried, and our failings will be forgotten." 

The Review of other Grand Jurisdictions is again the 
result of the studied survey by P.G.M. J. A. Klein. He 
says: "Some of these Grand Lodges may be orthodox and 
some liberal; some conservative and some progressive; but 
all adhere with a singleness of purpose which permits no 
deviation from our basic tenets and principles. Each has 
its own individual quality and each its own personality; 
but each is doing its part in making the Craft relevant to 
the needs of its jurisdiction; each is motivated by the same 
underlying principles and time-honored verities." After 
mentioning some of the worries that beset Grand Lodges 
here and there he adopts an optimistic note and continues: 
"Beneath these forebodings, however, one can detect in 
our leaders a belief that, after all, humanity is gradually 
becoming one ethically; not by suppression of differences 
but by a widening consciousness of obligations, a more 
sensitive response to the claims of justice, a greater fore- 
bearance towards differences of type, and a more enlightened 
conception of human purpose." He concludes: "We believe 
that the essential reasonableness and goodness of mankind 
will in the end prevail. To this we were born, and as 
Masons only thus can we face the future." 

We thank M.W. Bro. Klein for his good summary of 
Canada in Ontario for 1949. 



WEST VIRGINIA— 1950 

86th Annual — at Huntingdon — October 11-12. 

Grand Master — Daniel C. Bageant. 

Lodges, 164. Membership, 41,956. Gain, 1,518. 

We had to miss West Virginia 1949 in our last issue 
because the Proceedings did not arrive until after all our 
Reviews had gone to press, but there is one page that is 



90 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

as pertinent in 1951 as in 1950. We refer to that part of 
the Foreword to his Reviews where P.G.M. Henry Ahrens 
commented on the pronouncements by various Grand Masters 
and Grand Jurisdictions on Communism. Here it is: 
"While we are in hearty accord with all the sentiments 
expressed, yet we do not understand why the issue, if it 
may so be called, of Communism should be injected into 
Freemasonry. We demand of our candidates a belief in 
a Supreme Being-, and a promise to be loyal and obedient 
to the laws of the country in which they live. To this, 
Communists cannot subscribe. If candidates or members 
were to so affirm they would be guilty of perjury, which 
would be unmasonic conduct. Why denounce Communism, 
detestable and repugnant as it is, alone ? If modern 
Masonry intends to engage in public affairs, let it also 
take cognizance of the insidious and subversive propaganda 
of other organizations which do not have the welfare of 
the country at heart. We realize the danger of Communism 
and all subversive movements but, in our humble opinion, 
if we continue the course we appear to have embarked upon, 
we will sooner or later enter a field far removed from the 
fundamental concepts of the Institution." 

"The strength of Masonry rests in the individual, and 
through the individual we must work. Therefore, would 
it not be better to carefully investigate and scrutinize all 
applicants with the one thought in mind that good Masons, 
not just members, were desired ? Were this done and were 
we, as individuals, to go forth in the outside world and live 
according to the precepts of Masonry, and endeavor to do 
our part in preserving our American way of life, we would 
not need fear for the future of Masonry or our Country." 

P.G.M. Henry Ahrens, as Chairman of the Committee on 
Foreign Correspondence, has produced another fine lot of 
Reviews for these 1950 Proceedings and our Communication 
is one of the 64 to receive his skilled treatment. 

Okey S. Sheets of Huntingdon was elected Grand 
Master. 



WISCONSIN— 1950 

106th Annual — at Milwaukee — June 13-14. 

Grand Master — Albert Elmgreen. 

Lodges, 304. Membership, 61,453. Gain, 1,466. 

In these Proceedings there is a lone paragraph on one 
page before which your Reviewer pauses. It is headed 
"A Great Mason Says Farewell," and evidently it was the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 91 

final salute from Past Grand Master R. O. Jasperson who 
passed on to his reward in the autumn of 1950. 

"Since the following Report was written, doctors have 
informed me that my number is up and I must get ready 
for the supreme adventure — soon. Which means among 
other things that this is my last report on doings hither and 
yon among the grand jurisdictions with which we are in 
fraternal accord, as well as others. It has been a joy to 
be included in the 'round table' which in the past and even 
now has included in its ranks some of the most brilliant 
minds in Masonry. In taking my leave, I do so with 
complete serenity of spirit and a deep gratitude in my 
heart that I was permitted rather early to be a Freemason. 
To one and all, my brethren in Wisconsin and to the Round 
Table, I bid you a cheerful farewell!" 

The Report that he refers to is that on Foreign Corre- 
spondence which, with a Foreword that he evidently wrote 
some months earlier, fills some 56 pages. He had a happy 
faculty of making his reader feel more like a listener to 
an interesting conversation rather than like a reader of 
written words. A thinker with strong beliefs and firm 
principles, Masonry in Wisconsin has lost one of her most 
talented exponents. His readers, far and wide, are going 
to sorely miss his annual comment. 



WYOMING— 1950 

76th Annual— at Sheridan— August 28-29. 

Grand Master — Marshall S. Reynolds. 

Lodges, 50. Membership, 11,106. Gain, 339. 

There were seven Special Communications of the Grand 
Lodge during the year, — six were Corner Stone ceremonies 
and the other was for an outdoor Anniversary Celebration 
at Independence Rock. If one may form an opinion from 
the photographs in the Proceedings, this Rock is a rounded 
protuberance, bare of any kind of foliage or vegetation, 
probably a hundred and ninety feet high and covering a 
couple of dozen acres. Legend has it that the first Masonic 
meeting held on the Old Oregon Trail took place here in 
Civil War days. 

P.G.M. William A. Riner, now Chief Justice of the 
Wyoming Supreme Court, gave an Address on this occasion — 
July 4th, 1950 — and told entertainingly some of the history 
of those pioneer days; how the major supply route of the 
traders and trappers began at Independence, Missouri, 
followed westward the well known Sante Fe Trail for about 



92 GEAND LODGE OF CANADA 

forty miles and then headed northwest to the broad and 
shifting valley of the Platte. Washington Irving' wrote 
of this river as a "strange stream, the most magnificent and 
useless of rivers." Another traveller sarcastically described 
it as a thousand miles long and six inches deep. In the 
course of time this trail became a great rutted scar, "the 
vital link that united the states east of the Missouri with 
the sunset lands of the Pacific." 

The Committee on Masonic Correspondence reported 
that they had received applications for recognition and 
establishment of fraternal relations from a few Grand 
Lodges in different parts of the world, but while most of 
them seemed to be regular, none of these requests had been 
processed to the point where the Committee would feel 
justified in making recommendations. 

Hubert E. Mulholland, a native Wyomingite and a 
business man of Sheridan, was elected Grand Master. 



APPENDIX "B" 

Address delivered by R.W. Bro. Rev. Dr. W. Harold 

Young, at the Grand Master's Banquet, 

held in the Royal York Hotel, Toronto, 

on Wednesday evening, 18th 

July, 1951. 



Introduction of Guest Speaker by Most Worshipful 
Brother Charles S. Hamilton: 

Most Worshipful Grand Master, Distinguished Guests and 
Brethren: 

I have been accorded many, many privileges, Masonic- 
ally and otherwise, but none that I appreciate more than 
having been given the opportunity of introducing our Guest 
Speaker here tonight, a privilege more appreciated by 
reason of the fact that I have known him through many 
years and have had the happy privilege of enjoying his 
company on many occasions. 

Dr. Harold Young really needs no introduction to this 
audience. He addressed us at our Grand Master's Banquet 
in 1947. Following that he addressed the Grand Masters' 
Conference in Washington when many of our friends and 
guests were present and, I believe, has addressed since then 
Masonic gatherings in Massachusetts, New York, Michigan, 
Indiana, Dakota, and I don't know just how many others 
and, as a matter of fact, I think if Dr. Young felt so dis- 
posed, he could devote his entire time to great advantage 
in addressing Masonic gatherings throughout the North 
American Continent. That he was the unanimous choice 
as Guest Speaker for this particular occasion attests the 
applause which was accorded him on each one of those 
occasions. 

Now Harold is Canadian born of U. E. Loyalists and 
Irish stock, and I think probably if they traced those U. E. 
Loyalists back far enough we would find some English or 
Scotch blood in him. He is the son of a minister. 

Now, Dr. Young received his education in various 
Ontario public schools and Montreal High School; in 1908 
he was awarded the Governor General's Silver Medal, en- 
tered McGill University and received his B.A., in 1912; 
entered Columbia University and received his M.A., in 
1915; attended the Union Theological Seminary in New 
York and received his B.D., in 1916; attended Victoria 
College, University of Toronto, and received his D.D. degree 



2 APPENDIX "B" 

in 1931. He started his career with the church in Montreal 
and later moved to Peterborough and in 1925 came to St. 
Paul's Avenue Road United Church, where he remained 
until 1949. He is now Secretary of the Board of Colleges 
and Secretary of the Schools of the United Church of 
Canada. 

The most interesting person is the one who can tell 
us most about the largest number of things. Doctor Young 
has not devoted his entire time to the church and out of 
a busy life he has found time for other varied interests. 
His hobby is golf. I understand that when he started out 
in his early golfing days, walking along the fairway one 
day he asked his caddy what his hobby was and the reply 
was, "I am a Methodist." Dr. Young said, "That is not a 
hobby, that is your belief; for instance, I am a golfer and 
that is my hobby." The caddy replied, "No, Mister, from 
what I have seen that is only your belief." 

He has also found time during that busy life to take 
an interest in Rotary and there he has found the oppor- 
tunity of expending some of that energy which is his. 
Masonically he is a Craft Mason, a Past Grand Chaplain 
of the Grand Lodge of Quebec, a member of the Royal 
Arch Chapter, a member of the Scottish Rite, was Thrice 
Puissant Grand Master of the Toronto Lodge of Perfection 
and is a member of the Supreme Council, 33°, of the 
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, so that he has, through 
many, many years, shown a great interest in and has 
done a great deal of work for Masonry. 

Now, in Masonry we have thoughtful men, but indi- 
vidual thinking is not in itself sufficient. Our thinking 
needs to be stimulated by sharing the thoughts of other 
people. Brethren, a worthwhile opportunity will be ours 
tonight to share the thoughts of one who is able and willing 
to produce thoughts that 1 am sure we will all be delighted 
to share with him. Now, brethren, I have very much pleas- 
ure in presenting to you Reverend W. Harold Young, M.A., 
B.D., D.D. 

DR. W. HAROLD YOUNG 

Most Worshipful Sir, Most Worshipful Brother Ham- 
ilton, Distinguished Guests, Brethren all: He would indeed 
be a very strange sort of person who could not feel himself 
profoundly moved by such an introduction as Most Wor- 
shipful Brother Hamilton has given me, and by the more 
than generous reception which you have accorded me on 
this occasion. 

It's been a considerable time since Most Worshipful 
Brother Maher was good enough to invite me to come down 
and take part in this most enjoyable function tonight. T

have looked forward to this evening with a great deal of 
anticipation and now that the evening is upon us I can't 
help but say it is one of the greatest privileges that could 
be mine to be here to have a chance to say a few words to 
you. Certainly I couldn't conceive anybody who wouldn't 
get a thrill out of confronting a group of men like this 
and I do want you, M.W. Bro. Maher, and all of you to 
know that I appreciate very much indeed the privilege and 
opportunity which is mine tonight. 

As one to whom the Craft is very dear I can't forbear 
saying how greatly I rejoice at seeing the vigor and vitality 
of Masonry at every hand, particularly in this section of 
the Grand Lodge of Canada in Ontario. I suppose the 
credit belongs in a great many places but may I suggest 
with perfect confidence that what I am suggesting is the 
truth; that no small part of the credit for the progress of 
Masonry in these last few years resides and belongs in the 
hearts of the truly great men who have been our leaders 
over these last years of our history, and I want to pay my 
tribute to my good friend M.W. Bro. Maher. 

Shortly before he was elected to his present high 
office I was speaking at a meeting in Boston at which he 
was present, and I recall noticing his presence and telling 
that great gathering there that very shortly he would 
become Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada in 
Ontario and would venture to prophesy that he would make 
an outstanding job of the responsibilities of that high 
office, and I am sure that now his term of office has come 
to its end you will join with me in expressing those con- 
victions that what I said then has been more than borne 
out by the facts. (Applause.) 

So at the end of Jim's term of Grand Master I venture 
to bring out that he has been precisely what he has been 
before but more so, a kindly and just gentleman, the same 
wise administrator, the same loyal servant of all that is 
just, right and time, the same devoted Mason, the same 
friend of man, the same faithful servant of God, and he 
inherited a great tradition from those great men who 
preceded him and he lived up to it, and he hands on now, 
this week, the banners of his office to his successor with 
the shield unsullied and with its lustre increased. For all 
that he has done I, and all of us, will remember him for 
many days to come. 

Tonight I want to say a serious word or two to you 
about something which has been very close to my heart 
for some time past, brought into the focus of my own 
attention of the bewildering and perplexing time in which 
you and I are called upon to live and which is our respon- 
sibility to be not only citizens but Masons. It's a question 



4 APPENDIX "B" 

of the relevancy of some of our Masonic teachings to the 
world and to the age in which we live, and to us who must 
live in it. 

As you go through the philosophy of Masonry you 
will find that, point after point with startling directness, 
our Masonic teachings punch home into life today. I can't 
hope to cover it all but there are two or three things I want 
to suggest because I believe they are particularly important 
for Masonry as a whole and for us as Masons in such a 
time as this, and here is the first one. The Masons, the 
genuine Masons, emphasize a character as the cornerstone 
of personal and social well-being. That runs through all 
our philosophy, the man who does his duty, the man who 
is loyal to his family and his friends, the man whose deal- 
ings are marked by uprightness and intent, the man who 
is just to his employees and the man who is just to his 
employer, the man whose word is as good as his bond; that, 
Masonry teaches us from first to last and he is the kind of 
man who can weather all the storms that may beat about 
him and who can take a stand with his head up and unbowed 
and shoulders thrown back at the end of the longest day 
and at society. And so Masonry goes on and Masonry is 
composed of men of that type, likewise a society which is 
secure in the department of the heart which are the factors 
that make for stability, prosperity and lasting peace. That 
is Masonic philosophy and if there is anything in the world 
that could be relevant to the age in which we live, my 
brethren, surely that is it. 

The trage'dy of the day is not that science has failed 
us. Science has probed the secret of the uttermost stars; 
science has chained the waterfall and harnessed the light- 
ning and made it the slave of our will, the home, office 
and factory. It is not the inventive spirit — rather the in- 
ventive genius of the human spirit that has failed us. The 
inventive genius of the human spirit has taught us how 
to project a voice of a human being around the world in a 
split second by radio; how to fly in the reaches of the 
upper stratosphere at a speed which out-rivals that of the 
swiftest bird. We have learned how to devise and use 
machines and gadgets that our fathers never dreamed of. 
If scientists had had their own unhindered way, ours surely 
would have been a happy generation. 

But the thing that failed us is something far deeper 
than that. The human character has failed us, and that 
is the heart of the human problem; and as I have said on 
more than one occasion the root of our troubles today is 
basically the fact that we have at our disposal power un- 
dreamed of and many other things that men and women 
are not capable of using to their own advantage and to 
their own profit. 



APPENDIX "B" 5 

Mr. H. G. Wells sets down a sentence which has been 
fixed in my mind. He put down his pen and day-dreamed 
for a bit and before his eyes there appeared an image of 
a young girl of long ago, a girl of high intellect, of great 
purity and steadfact loyalty, and he gazed upon that thought 
image of her time. He got the sense of her and what she 
stood for. Then he took up his pen again and wrote these 
words, "We have much improved on the sickle that Ruth 
held in her hand when she reaped the ground in the corner 
of Boaz' field, but by George, we haven't improved on Ruth 
yet;" and that, my brethren, is the heart of the human 
problem; it is character failure that has brought us to 
where we are to-day. 

I hope no one will go home without this point. Nor 
is it only character failure on the part of our leaders— 
that may be true in totalitarian states but not true in 
democratic states. The will of course from time to time in 
history shows up in a few men like Lincoln and Washing- 
ton, Pitt and Churchill and Roosevelt and others who leave 
their stamp forever on the history of mankind. Yet in a 
democracy in the long run the quality and significance of 
leadership is determined by what is going on down in the 
mass of society and your leader is only the focus and 
reflection of what the common man is and thinks and does. 
Also the vital stuff of which history is made is the atti- 
tudes and thoughts and the ideals and the standards of the 
ordinary man. 

Four years ago when I spoke at this function I quoted 
Townbee, that great historian of our day. Townbee is one 
and Butterfield of Cambridge is the other. Townbee said, 
"Civilization may be wrecked without any spectacular 
crimes or criminals, but by constant pity preaches a faith 
and minor complications on the part of men and women, 
generally considered to be very nice people." Similarly 
if civilization is to be saved it will be in the long run saved 
by the integrity and the idealists and the fit and cour- 
ageous and the self-sacrifice of the ordinary man. 

Somewhere is recorded that once a young man with 
high dreams of a better world came to that great Russian, 
Leo Tolstoi, with the blueprint kind of world he had been 
dreaming of and asked his judgment on it. There was a 
period of silence in which the great thinker's eyes looked 
piercingly through the very soul of that young lad and 
his comment was, "My friend, if you really want to make 
the world better you must first yourself be the very best 
you can." I know of nothing which is more relevant to our 
world today than that. That, my brethren, is Masonry. 
First I say then the emphasis is on character as the corner- 
stone of personal and social well-being. 

Here is a second teaching of ours which I think has 
distinctive relevancy indeed to our present world conditions. 



6 APPENDIX "B" 

The emphasis is on the world and value of the individual 
man, and not least the common man. Today we live appar- 
ently in a world of systems. Yesterday it was the Nazi 
system that engrossed our mind and overshadowed our 
pathway. Today it is Communism, the Communist system; 
and there are some other systems near home that might 
be mentioned too. And as you live in a world of wheels 
and systems grinding as the wheels and systems today 
grind in monumental immensity, what can the individual 
do? And what really is the individual worth? 

Is it not true after all that in a world of this kind the 
individual is precisely what the Nazi and the like proclaim 
him to be, simply a cog in a vast machine, simply an insig- 
nificant member of society in which the state is everything 
and the individual counts not at all. That spirit has been 
going on in our day; it is the ruling spirit of Russia now 
as it was of Germany not so long ago. It is not unknown 
in our own land. 

Back in the days of the First Great War there took 
place in the Battle of Verdun, a name that will live forever, 
an incident where a whole platoon of French infantrymen 
were buried alive by a German shell which burst near them. 
They were dug out and apparently not much the worse for 
wear returned to duty again. The Lieutenant in charge 
of the platoon made his report of the incident in such 
terms as these, "A German shell buried my whole platoon 
alive, but we dug the men out and used them again today." 
We dug them out and used them again today! Men made 
in the image of God under the supervision of the Most 
High himself, things to be dug out and used again! Breth- 
ren, that is not Masonry. 

If you go back to the very foundation, the legend of 
Masonry, the first legend that greets you when you come 
into the Lodge for the first time in your life, into Masonry, 
you will find in that legend that there are three characters; 
two of them were kings, Solomon and Hiram of Tyre, men 
of distinguished lineage, men of rank and position and 
wealth and place and power. The third, he was no king; 
he had no distinguished lineage; he had no rank or place 
or power, his only designation being that he was Hiram 
Abiff, a widow's son; and yet if you read that legend on 
for as far as three degrees you will discover that it was 
the fidelity of that common man who never knew a palace 
nor had blue blood in his veins, nor place or power of 
authority, it was the fidelity of that common man that 
saved great issues for our cause in those early years, and 
it was that fidelity which Masonry gathered up and made 
immortal in the Third Degree. 

It so happened the early years of my ministry over- 
lapped the closing years of one of the greatest preachers 



APPENDIX "B" 7 

that Canada ever had. You may know him; his name was 
James Henderson. He had the handicap of being bom 
in Scotland (laughter) but by his long residence in Canada 
became quite a preacher and quite a man. 

Well, he was a prince in the pulpit; not only in the 
pulpit; he had a mind that scanned the horizon; he had a 
heart that was as broad as the sea in its outer reaches, 
and to be associated with him for two years as I was, was 
one of the highest privileges of a lifetime. Every Monday 
afternoon we used to foregather in his study on Roslin Ave- 
nue in Westmount, ostensibly to talk over the affairs of the 
Church, but actually before five minutes had passed it 
would drift into some conversation which would be initially 
devoted to some book he had been reading. He read avidly 
to the end of his days and his mind at seventy-five was 
more active than most men of twenty-five. His conversa- 
tion would drift into books of current events and the great 
issues of our times, and I would sit at his feet as a pupil 
sitting at the feet of a great teacher while he discoursed 
at great length. 

Now, one Monday afternoon he told me a story which 
I have never forgotten. Quite some years before that he 
had been appointed Minister of Carlton Street Church in 
Toronto and he and his family came to Toronto by boat 
on Lake Ontario. As they were drawing near to Toronto 
a very nasty storm swept up over the lake which damaged 
the rudder and controls on the vessel and within a very 
short time that very steamer was piled up a mass of wreck- 
age off the Scarborough Bluffs to the east of the city here. 
Fortunately no lives were lost but when he and his family 
entered the Church the following Sunday morning he went 
into the pulpit to preach and he had to preach extempor- 
aneously because most of his effects, amongst which was 
his sermon, were lying in forty feet of water down the 
lake here. 

Well, several days later a dray drove up to his house 
with some of his possessions that had been recovered from 
the wreck, and the very first box they brought in was the 
box that contained the sermon that he had prepared for 
that Sunday morning. They ripped the lid off and there 
at the very top of the pile was most of the sermon which 
he had written so carefully to be preached as you would 
prepare a sermon to be preached in a new church. That it 
had been under water needs no imagination as to what 
condition it was in; almost every leaf had been washed out 
completely, it was just blurred ink and that was all. 

The family gathered around him and there were dis- 
consolate voices at such a happening as this and the Min- 
ister said to them, "See all the hard work I put into thi3 
preparation of that sermon all gone." There was not a 



8 APPENDIX "B" 

vestige of a word that could be deciphered. Well, his little 
stepdaughter picked up the manuscript and held it up with 
her eyes to the window and exclaimed, "But, father, there 
is something here that can be read." He took the manu- 
script from her hand and he held it up to the window and 
sure enough there,, woven into the very texture of the paper, 
was the water-mark, the name of the man that made it. 

Then the old man paused for a few moments, fixed 
me with a piercing gaze, then pointed his long bony finger 
at me and said, "Young man, never you forget that story; 
it is a parable of life; on the soul of every man that lives 
is engraven the name of the God who made him and not 
all the storms of life nor all the floods of death and hell 
can ever wash it out." 

My brethren, that is Masonry; Hiram, the widow's son, 
humble, a stranger to King's Palaces or geneological tables, 
small, but a man in whom there dwelt the most tremendous 
capacity for fidelity and loyalty and steadfastness and sac- 
rifice. The men we deal with day by day you notice in 
office or factory, on the street or wherever they may be, 
they are not cogs in a great machine; they are people, 
individuals of surpassing worth and rich possibilities, and 
on the soul of every one of them that lives is engraven 
the name of the God who made him. That is the second 
thing which is of relevancy, I think, to us in the world 
that we live in today. 

Then there is a third thing. It is Masonry's insistence 
of the fact that deep in the heart of things, somewhere, 
there is an absolute standard of morality. That at least 
is what Masonry steadfastly believes. It believes that in 
this universe there is somewhere for every circumstance a 
right as God sees it, <and a wrong as God sees it. To be 
sure, our ideas of what constitutes right and wrong differ 
so we need a deeper understanding into the insights of life 
and truth. But the conviction that there is an absolute 
truth of right and wrong towards which our hearts aspire 
and in the direction of which we progress through the gen- 
erations, that conviction is at the very heart of Masonry 
and on the whole structure of Masonry morality is built. 
I don't need to tell you that in this day that whole con- 
ception is being seriously challenged and is under direct 
attack. An absolute standard of morality, men cry, "Not 
so." That is right, so we are told, which the majority of 
men at any given time approve, and that is wrong when 
they disapprove, and beyond that there is no standard what- 
ever. There is a whole school of philosophy moving in our 
world today along that line. 

Just a few weeks ago, I was down doing a Chapel Ser- 
vice at one of your greatest American Universities. There 
were 31,000 students there and in the course of my sermon 



APPENDIX "B" 9 

in the Chapel that Sunday morning I made some mention 
of this business of the attack on the historic conception of 
absolute morality; and as we were walking home from the 
Chapel Service one of the professors who was walking by 
my side said, "I am glad you brought their attention to 
that; the current fad of teaching is that there is no such 
thing; it is rife upon this campus, and what it is doing to 
thousands of our students is too tragic for words." 

And even more serious, not very long ago, so the 
papers said, a company that manufactures liver pills in 
the United States got into trouble. They had a claim they 
had advertised for decades, that their particular products 
had distinctive and unique and specific effects upon the 
disorders of that misunderstood and often much maligned 
organ, the liver. Well, the United States authorities got 
after the situation and you will recall that after much in- 
vestigation they concluded that the pills had no effect what- 
ever on the liver and that the advertising was, therefore, 
false advertising and they compelled the people to with- 
draw all mention of the liver from the name of their pills 
and from the advertising. 

Now, about the time that that was greatly in the public 
eye in the newspapers in Toronto a little group of men 
was discussing this matter in one of the clubs in this city, 
and with my own ears I heard this comment offered by 
one of the men discussing the case; he said, "You see how 
important it is to be honest in your advertising, because if 
you are not honest in your advertising sooner or later the 
public will catch up with you." Be honest in your adver- 
tising! Be honest! Be honest in anything because if you 
are not, sooner or later the public will catch up with you. 
I suggest to you, my brethren, that that is a damnable 
perversion of decency, and when I heard that comment 
offered there rang in my ears, as from some distant chapel, 
a sentence from a bit of our Masonic Ritual in which it is 
set forth that it is the duty of a Mason to make honour 
and duty the polestars to guide his life over the stormy 
seas of time, to do that which is his right to do and not 
because it will insure success or win the praise of men or 
be the best policy, but just because it is right and therefore 
should be done. That is Masom-y. How the world needs 
that kind of thinking today! 

In one of his great plays that Norwegian dramatist, 
Ibsen, set down the story of a young man who knew that 
before very long he was going to be called to the colours, 
but he had no stomach for it so he set about to devise a 
plan whereby he could secure exemption. He hit upon 
one. He went out into the field taking a fowling piece 
with him and very carefully blew the trigger finger off 
his right hand. In due course his call came and he reported 
as he was instructed to do. He simply held out his hand 



10 • APPENDIX "B" 

showing' the maimed finger. The officer at the desk took 
one look at it and nobody said a word. The officer simply 
reached for a form and filled out a certificate of exemption 
for military duty and handed it to him. He gave him a look 
which showed beyond any question of a doubt that he had 
understood and, says Ibsen, "after that whenever that 
young man met one of his fellows on the street he rammed 
the maimed hand into the pocket of his jacket." Why? 
To exhibit it he felt would mean condemnation. I believe 
we, as Masons, know there is more than that to it and that 
the action on his part in shoving his maimed hand into the 
pocket of his jacket was his involuntary reaction to the 
universe again when he knew that he had sinned to a moral 
order by the standards of which he felt himself condemned. 

The Ten Commandments will not budge; they will con- 
tinue still. In this day of easy moral relativism which for 
so many the right is what you can get away with, or 
what the set you happen to move in approves, I think there 
is room for increased emphasis on this thing which we, as 
Masons, steadfastly believe — that we do live in a moral 
order, and that before and beyond us there is an absolute 
morality to which persistently we must aspire. 

Now, I was over in Michigan last winter and I picked 
up a tale there of a man who was running for Governor 
in one of the States last November. He was doing the 
usual barnstorming campaign in a little place where all 
the population of the town had gathered. They came to 
listen to him and he received quite a welcome. He started 
his speech and it was quite a speech. He had been going 
about ten minutes when, as he paused to breathe, to his 
amazement he heard distinctly a heavy voice from the 
audience call out, "too slow." He gasped and gathered 
himself together and went on. About seven or eight min- 
utes passed and he again paused for breath and the voice 
piped up again, "too dull." Well it was a little tough going 
now but he tried again and went on and about ten minutes 
after, when he paused for effect, the voice stentorially 
piped up with "too long," at which the Chairman nudged 
him in the ribs and said, "Pay no attention to him; he is 
just the village moron; he only repeats what he hears 
everybody else saying." (Laughter.) 

With that story on my mind and the moral of it on 
my heart, because the hands of the clock dash by, I hasten 
to one more and final point at which I think Masonry is 
distinctly relevant to the need of our world today and to 
us who must live in a time such as this, and that is the 
emphasis on the fact of God and of our ultimate account- 
ability to Him. 

I shall not need to take any time here expounding the 
significance of the fact that we, as Masons, do believe in 



APPENDIX "B" 11 

God and that we do believe that at the end of the day we 
are morally accountable to Him for what we are and do. 
Nor tragically enough do I need to take any time at all 
to point out this fact, that all of us must realize that in 
this age the sense of God is growing dim and that multi- 
tudes of people liye day after day and year after year and 
many of them a lifetime without the slightest evidence that 
they ever entertain such a thought, and that finally they 
will be accountable to Him for what they have done with 
their span of days and years and with their power. 

There is an old story about that great skeptic. Voltaire, 
how one day he was going down the streets of Paris and 
he and a friend with whom he was walking chanced to pass 
a religious procession and as the central element in the 
procession came uj sight the great skeptic took off his hat. 
"What," said his friend, "are you and God then reconciled?" 
"No," replied the skeptic, "we salute but we do not speak;" 
which is just about typical of the attitude on this most 
fundamental thing of the multitude of people that you and 
I know, and with whom the world is filled today. That 
God exists, they would profess, no doubt; that they have 
any relationship to Him whatever, seems never to cross 
their mind, and as for any sense of the thing that Masonry 
is filled with, the idea of our final moral accountability to 
Him, well, there simply isn't any. 

There are plenty of people on this continent who feel 
that their final accountability is to Joseph Stalin. There 
are plenty of people on this continent who apparently feel 
that they are finally accountable to the office manager or 
the foreman in the factory. There are even a number of 
men, I understand, who feel a certain sense of account- 
ability for what they are and do to their wives, but as far 
as any sense of accountability to God is concerned, it just 
doesn't exist, or if they think of it at all they think of it 
in the terms that Omar The Tent Maker put them into: 

"Then," spake another. "There be some who tell 
Of one who threatens he will toss to Hell 
The luckless Pots he marred in making — Pish! 
He's a Good Fellow, and 'twill all be well." 

I often ask myself what kind of world this world of 
ours will be if the day should ever come when from the 
human heart all sense of God and the final accountability 
to Him have died out? I do not know the answer to that; 
but when I ask the great seers of the race for an answer 
they give me an answer that frightens me, for they say, 
with the greatest of comfort, that a world in which the 
sense of God is dead and from which the sense of moral 
responsibility has vanished, will be a world in which _ evil 
will stalk abroad unashamed, might shall be the only right, 



12 APPENDIX "B" 

conscience shall be dead and the last vestiges of decency 
shall have vanished never to return. 

As Masons who belong 1 to an Order which has for its 
foundation faith in God and for one of its foremost dogmas 
our personal accountability to Him, I want to suggest to 
you tonight that from this Grand Lodge we may very well, 
you and I, go back to our ordinary road of life resolved 
in a new way to live on that basis and to seek to get others 
to live on it too, because it may be by so doing we shall do 
more than we can do in any other way to keep alive in the 
consciousness of this world the sense of the things without 
which it must be lost forever and in which that God still 
remains its one abiding hope. 

And so I suggest to you, Most Worshipful Sir and 
Brethren, having first suggested to myself in all humility, 
that here are things that lie at the very heart of our Mason- 
ry, that are uniquely and distinctly relevant to the world 
in which we live, and to us who must live in it; the em- 
phasis on character as a cornerstone of well-being, of per- 
sonal and social well-being, the emphasis on the worth and 
significance of the individual, even the commonest of him. 
the emphasis on the existence of an absolute standard of 
morality toward which under God we and all men must 
aspire, the emphasis on the final and ultimate fact of in- 
finity, God Himself and of our final accountability to Him. 
It is in these things that the world's best hope lies. May 
you and I, be who we are and what we do, keep that hope 
alive. (Continued applause.)

After M.W. Bro. George G. Wood, Chairman, had wel- 
comed the delegates to the Conference he called upon M.W. 
Bro. Canon L. F. Crothers to give the invocation. 

Deep regret was expressed that neither of the two 
District Grand Lodges of Newfoundland was represented 
as since the first Conference Newfoundland had been ad- 
mitted to Confederation as the tenth province. 

A most cordial welcome to the Grand Jui-isdiction of 
Manitoba was extended to the delegates by M.W. Bro. 
Charles E. Cole, Grand Master, who that same evening was 
host at a formal dinner at which Principal Evans, of Bran- 
don College, was the guest speaker. 

The following program was presented by the Agenda 
Committee, each topic being introduced by a member and 
discussion on the topic presented by another member. 

Topic No. 1. Masonic Relief and its relation to present 
day Social Legislation: (a) Should Benev- 
olent Fund Capital Accounts be limited in 
amount ? 

Topic No. 2. Should Masonic functions and projects re- 
ceive more publicity ? 

Topic No. 3. Freemasonry in South America; (a) Should 
there be uniform Canadian recognition? 

Topic No. 4. What steps should Freemasonry take, if 
any, to the opposition of some Protestant 
Churches ? 

(a) Has Freemasonry any obligation to the 
Church ? 

Topic No. 5. How can Freemasonry best serve in a Na- 
tional Emergency ? 

(a) At Home. 

(b) Abroad. 

Topic No. 6. Freemasonry and Youth: 
What is our obligation? 



APPENDIX "C" 3 

Topic No. 7. Are Masonic Lodges looked upon in the same 
high regard today as in the past? 

(a) Have our standards been lowered? 

(b) To what degree has inefficiency or 
otherwise of Lodge officers been responsible 
for the trend ? 

(c) Do we honor our obligations? 

Topic No. 8. Research Association Meeting (Tuesday 
night) . 

Topic No. 9. Masonic Education: 

(a) Are we obtaining results for efforts 
expended ? 

Topic No. 10. Should Constituent Lodges give publicity 
through local publications? 

On Tuesday evening the members attended a meeting 
of the Masonic Research Association which was held in 
the Masonic Temple, when several interesting and informa- 
tive papers were presented. 

The Committee appointed to make recommendations 
regarding the time and place of and to nominate the offi- 
cers and committee for the next Conference recommended 
as follows: 

(1) That the next Conference be held in 1953 in the 
Province of Quebec, on or about the same time of the year 
as the present Conference, having in mind the dates of 
the Grand Masters' Conference at Washington, D.C. . 

(2) That the following be the committee: 
Chairman, R.W. Bro. C. L. Roman, Valleyfield, Quebec. 
Secretary-Treasurer, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, Hamilton, 

Ontario 

Additional executive members : 

R.W. Bro. P. S. Cochrane, Wolfville, Nova Scotia. 

R.W. Bro. Guy Hummell, Nokomis, Saskatchewan. 

Agenda Committee: 

To be composed of three members, one from New 
Brunswick, one from Quebec and one from Ontario. 

(3) That the representation and financial arrangements 
be the same as those in effect for the present Conference. 

After the members had spent three very happy and 
instructive days together they departed for their homes 
more satisfied than ever that such conferences accomplished 
much good and were a great contribution to national unity 
as well as to national Masonic unity. And so the Second 
Biennial Conference closed in greatest harmony on Wednes- 
day, February 28th, 1951.
