A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF OUR 
GRAND MASTER 



Robert Edwin Davies was born in Mount Forest, 
Ontario, October 5, 1931. Here he received his elemen- 
tary and secondary school education. Always a good 
scholar and a fine athlete, he was the recipient of several 
academic and athletic awards and trophies. His extra- 
curricular activities as President of the student council and 
quarterback of the football team attest to his leader- 
ship ability even at this early age. 

In 1948, during his final school year, owing to the 
sudden illness and subsequent passing of his father, he 
took over the family retail business and has operated it 
most successfully ever since. 

In 1954 he married Annabelle Christie of HopevUle 
and the Davies now have three children, the eldest, Kathy, 
a graduate of the University of Waterloo — now enrolled 
at the Ontario Teacher Education College, Hamilton; 
Robert, presently at home in the family business; and the 
youngest, Lynn, a student at the Mount Forest District 
High School. 

He is a member of the United Church and over the 
years has served on many committees and boards, both in 
the Church and also in the Sunday School. 

Always interested in his community, your Grand 
Master is a past director of the Mount Forest Boy Scout 
Group, past director of the Mount Forest Louise Marshall 
Hospital Board, former member of the Mount Forest 
Cameron Highlanders Pipe Band, and past President of 
the Mount Forest Investment Club. His many hobbies 
include all sports, and amateur radio where he is the 
holder of an Advanced Amateur Radio License and can 
be identified around the world by the call sign VE3ERD. 



Being initiated, passed and raised in St. Albans 
Lodge, No. 200, in 1952, he became Worshipful Master 
in 1960, and in 1961 was elected District Deputy Grand 
Master of Grey District. March 1964 saw him appointed 
the Representative of the Grand Lodge of Louisiana 
which Grand Lodge conferred upon him the rank of Past 
Junior Grand Warden. In July of the same year he was 
appointed a member of the Board of General Purposes 
of our Grand Lodge, a position to which he has been 
subsequently elected for five successive two-year terms. 
Chairman of the Committee on Fraternal Dead in 1971 
and 1972, he was then appointed for 1973 and 1974 
Chairman of Benevolence, a committee with which he had 
been closely associated during his entire tenure as a mem- 
ber of the Board of General Purposes. He was elected 
Deputy Grand Master in July 1975 and Grand Master in 
July 1977. 

Our Grand Master is a member of the Royal City 
Lodge of Perfection; Past Most Wise Sovereign of the 
Guelph Chapter Rose Croix; member of the Moore Sov- 
ereign Consistory; Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite 
of Canada; a member of the Ancient and Arabic Order 
Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, Mocha Temple, London; 
the Royal Order of Scotland and was coroneted Honorary 
Inspector-General, 33°, at the Annual Meeting of the 
Supreme Council, A. & A.S.R. of Canada, in Hamilton, 
September 1977. 

In 1961, Robert E. Davies was the youngest District 
Deputy Grand Master in the Jurisdiction and now at 45 
years of age becomes one of the youngest to be elected 
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario.

40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

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

My Brethren : 

It is my pleasure and privilege to address you, my 
brethren, as I did last year, at the end of another Masonic 
year as your Grand Master. This has been a most memor- 
able year in my life, with many honors and courtesies be- 
stowed upon me, a year not without certain problems 
but overridden with the great privilege of serving you 
and the cause of Masonry in all parts of our Grand Juris- 
diction and in our neighboring Jurisdictions both in 
Canada and in the United States. 

We are pleased and proud to welcome so many of our 
fellov; Grand Masters and their representatives from 
other Grand Lodges, as well as those other distinguished 
Masons representing Masonic bodies with whom we are 
at amity. My wife and I (and occasionally a Past Grand 
Master and his wife representing our Grand Lodge) have 
visited almost all the Grand Jurisdictions represented and 
appreciate so much the gracious hospitality and the many 
kindnesses and courtesies extended to us. It is a pleasure 
to reciprocate and I hope that our distinguished guests 
and their ladies will enjoy the activities of this 122nd Com- 
munication of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province 
of Ontario. 

Perhaps the highlight of this year's term of office was 
being selected and elected as Chairman of the Conference 
of Grand Masters of North America which met in Wash- 
ington in February, and presiding over that great Confer- 
ence. This was, I feel, a great honor for our Canadian 
Grand Lodge, as the Conference is composed of 49 United 
States Grand Lodges, 9 Canadian Grand Lodges and the 
York Grand Lodge of Mexico. It was a great experience 
working with M.W. Bro. Wm. B. Stansbury, the Executive 
Secretary-Treasurer of the Conference. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 41 

I was very honored, indeed, to be presented with 
distinguished Masonic Service medals — the Erasmus 
James Phillips Medal by the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia; 
the Josiah Hayden Drummond Medal by the Grand Lodge 
of Maine; and the Pierpont Edwards Medal by the Grand 
Lodge of Connecticut. 

NECROLOGY 

Again, during the past Masonic year, we have lost 
some very diligent and very knowledgeable brethren by 
death, men who will be greatly missed in this Grand Juris- 
diction and especially in their respective parts of the Prov- 
ince where their influence was most notably felt. 

R.W. BRO. W. H. KIPP 

A Member of the Board of General Purposes of our 
Grand Lodge from 1955 to 1959. Bro. Kipp served St. 
John's Lodge, No. 20, London, Ontario, as Secretary for 
23 years. He was called to the Grand Lodge Above on 
February 2, 1977. He will be missed by all who knew him 
and his many contributions to Craft Masonry and other 
branches of our Order will be long remembered. 

V.W. BRO. GEORGE T. KENNEDY 

Bro. Kennedy was bom September 21, 1875, and 
celebrated his centennial in 1975. He was initiated into St. 
Thomas Lodge, No. 44, on September 22, 1897, and was 
at the time of his passing on November 16, 1976, over 101 
years of age. In 1942 he served as Grand Director of 
Ceremonies. Bro. Kennedy was an honorary member of 
all lodges in St. Thomas District and an ardent Mason and 
regular attender of all these lodges almost up to the time 
of his death. A fine gentleman, an outstanding Mason, and 
he will be sadly missed by his many Masonic friends. He 
had been a Mason for over seventy-nine years. 

PAST RANK 

(1) It was my pleasure to appoint V.W. Bro. Cecil J. 
Blake of Wardrope Lodge, No. 555, Hamilton, a 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Grand Standard Bearer on July 22, 1976. Bro. Blake 
served with distinction until his passing on March 
12, 1977. I recommend that past rank be granted 
posthumously. 

(2) Wor. Bro. James Foote of Lansdowne Lodge No. 
387, was to be installed Worshipful Master at the 
regular meeting on December 27, 1975, but was 
unable to attend because of a temporary illness. He 
was installed at the regular meeting in February 
1976 and has served that office with distinction. I 
recommend he be granted rank of Past Master. 

(3) Wor. Bro. Gerald Tearne was installed as Worship- 
ful Master of Sioux Lookout Lodge, No. 518, on 
June 24, 1976. He passed away, suddenly, in 
August of that year. Bro. Tearne was an ardent 
Mason and I recommend he be granted past rank 
posthumously. 

(4) Wor. Bro. Mervin White was installed Worshipful 
Master of Prince Arthur Lodge, No. 333, Flesherton, 
on June 11, 1976, and passed to the Grand Lodge 
Above on May 13, 1977. He attended and presided 
at nine regular meetings. I recommend he be granted 
the rank of Past Master, posthumously. 

(5) Wor. Bro. Harry E. Downing was to have been in- 
stalled Worshipful Master of Doric Lodge, No. 316, 
Weston, on January 15, 1976; he was hospitalized 
and his installation took place on March 18, 1976. 
He carried out his responsibilities in a most suitable 
manner for ten months. I recommend he be granted 
the rank of Past Master. 

(6) Wor. Bro. George E. Williams was duly installed as 
Worshipful Master of Acacia Lodge, No. 561, 
Ottawa, on May 18, 1976. He was promoted to 
Inspector of the R.C.M.P. and posted to New- 
foundland and only presided over three meetings of 
his lodge because of the great distance required to 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 43 

commute. I recommend he be granted rank of Past 
Master. 

(7) Wor. Bro. Donald Morcombe was installed Worship- 
ful Master of Hazeldean Lodge, No. 517, Hazeldean, 
Ontario, on June 16, 1976. He conducted three of 
their meetings, but business interests required him to 
spend much of the year in Alberta. Bro. Morcombe 
flew from Alberta at his own expense to conduct the 
April and June meetings. He directed the affairs of 
the lodge by mail, telephone, etc. The lodge prosper- 
ed under his command. I recommend that Bro. 
Morcombe be granted rank of Past Master.

Colyer, D. H. Felker, B. W. Macdonald, W. J. 
Curtis. 

VISITATIONS TO OTHER GRAND LODGES 
AND MASONIC BODIES 

I had the great pleasure of attending the Grand Com- 
munications of many other Grand Lodges both in Canada 
and in the United States of America. Everywhere the 
spirit of Brotherhood was highly evident and these visits 
(accompanied by my wife) were not only enjoyable but 
instructive as well. Several of our Past Grand Masters 
attended Grand Communications representing our Grand 
Lodge when it was impossible for me to be present and I 
thank them for so doing. 

A list of these visitations to other Grand Jurisdictions 
is found in Appendix A. 

APPOINTMENT 

In recognition of his great work in the building of 
the Ottawa Masonic Temple, on the occasion of the 
Dedication January 15, 1977, I had the pleasure of ap- 
pointing W. Bro. Edwin A. Gardner a Grand Steward of 
the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

I request from Grand Lodge approval of this ap- 
pointment and past rank for this brother. 

LODGE BUILDINGS DEDICATED 

I was pleased to have the privilege of dedicating the 
new lodge premises of Connaught Lodge, No. 511, 
Thunder Bay, on September 18, 1976. I commend the 
brethren on their efforts and wish them well for the future. 

R.W. Bro. Robert E. Davies, Deputy Grand Master, 
officiated at the dedication ceremonies of the new Masonic 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 47 

Hall of Scott Lodge, No. 421, Grand Valley, on October 
13, 1976. 

On January 15, 1977, it was a particular pleasure, 
along with a large group of Grand Lodge officers, to 
dedicate the beautiful, new Masonic Temple in Ottawa. 
The brethren in our nation's capital are justifiably proud 
of this spacious new accommodation. 

It was also a great Masonic event for Norwood 
Lodge, No. 223, Norwood, when on March 28, 1977, I 
was privileged to dedicate their new lodge premises, where 
the building was converted beautifully to Masonic use 
from a church. 

On March 2, 1977, R.W. Bro. Ronald E. Groshaw, 
Grand Senior Warden, with a team of Grand Lodge 
officers, dedicated the new Temple of King George V 
Lodge, No. 498, Coboconk, and, on May 27, 1977, M.W. 
Bro. Wm. L. Wright, Past Grand Master, dedicated the 
new Temple of Hornepayne Lodge, No. 636, Hornepayne. 
The brethren of these two lodges are to be congratulated 
on their faithful efforts to build new Temples.

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

This year, at our Grand Master's Banquet, we are 
especially privileged to have Bro. The Very Reverend 
A. Lome MacKay as our guest speaker. He was until 
June the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Canada, 
is the Provincial Grand Master of the Royal Order of 
Scotland in Ontario, and a good friend. He is coming back 
from his beloved Prince Edward Island to address us and 
I am certain that he will thrill us with his oration. 



OPERATION LIFELINE 

This is a project started in the Toronto Districts by 
W. Bro. Paul Curry and R.W. Bro. R. E. Groshaw, 
Grand Senior Warden, to raise $50,000 to purchase for 
the Toronto Branch of the Canadian Red Cross a mobile 
Blood Donor Clinic — a vehicular unit to collect whole 
blood by donations from the general public within a 50 
mile radius of Toronto. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 51 

This is a fine, imaginative undertaking and I con- 
gratulate those who have committed themselves to its 
successful completion — I understand that over one half 
of the money has now been collected. 

"MEETING THE CHALLENGE" 

A new and very useful book has just been com- 
pleted and distributed entitled "Meeting the Challenge". 
It is, in essence, a manual for lodge officers and contains 
an excellent chapter on Etiquette and Protocol. I should 
Hke, on behalf of Grand Lodge, to thank those responsible 
for this publication, among whom are R.W. Bro. Wallace 
McLeod, M.W. Bro. W. K. Bailey, R.W. Bro. N. R. 
Richards and R.W. Bro. C. D. MacKenzie. 

MASONIC FOUNDATION OF ONTARIO 

As you are aware, the Masonic Foundation of 
Ontario has established a goal of half a milhon dollars 
by 1980, when this Grand Lodge will celebrate its 125th 
Anniversary. Donations are coming in fairly well, but I 
commend it to those of you who have not yet contributed 
— i.e. to make a donation as generous as you can afford 
annually, and/ or arrange for a sum for the Foundation 
in your will. 

PROCEEDINGS 

The cost of printing the Proceedings of Grand 
Lodge has increased to $9.35 per copy for 1976. I recom- 
mend that, in the future, a copy, free of charge, will be 
sent to each of our constituent lodges, to each member 
of the Board of General Purposes, to each incoming 
District Deputy Grand Master, to all Grand Represent- 
atives and to all appointed officers of Grand Lodge. 
Further copies will be made available to all members at 
$5.00 a copy. Should you wish a copy, please place your 
order through the Grand Secretary, enclosing your cheque 
or money order as soon as possible in order that he may 
know how many to order. 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

HONORARY MEMBER OF THE BOARD 

I recommend that R.W. Bro. Eric C. Horwood, 
Chairman of the Advisory Committee on Lodge Build- 
ings, be appointed an honorary member of the Grand 
Lodge Board of General Purposes. Our Grand Lodge is 
fortunate, indeed, to have a man with his expertise and 
one who is constantly and diligently applying his know- 
ledge to the benefit of the Craft. 

APPRECIATIONS 

I have been informed that R.W. Bro. J. J. Talman 
has decided to withdraw from a very important function 
which he has been serving for many years — the analysis 
and summation of our Fraternal Reviews. May 1 express 
to him the grateful appreciation of Grand Lodge for the 
excellent manner in which he has performed this task 
for such a long period of time. 

I should like, also, to thank R.W. Bro. Rod Connor. 
He has driven me many thousands of miles on official 
Masonic functions for many years, but especially during 
my term as Deputy Grand Master and Grand Master. 
This has been very much appreciated and I now seize 
the opportunity to thank our G.L. Chairman of Blood 
Donor Committee publicly. 

The office of Grand Master entails many duties 
and much responsibility, but it could not be satisfactorily 
performed without the dihgent and knowledgeable assist- 
ance and co-operation of so many distinguished Masons 
— the Grand East is a tower of strength (this includes our 
Past Grand Masters, the Grand Secretary, the Grand 
Treasurer and the Deputy Grand Master), and the Grand 
Lodge Board of General Purposes offers firm support. 
I should like to particularly thank our Grand Secretary, 
M.W. Bro. John A. Irvine, whose efficiency, detailed 
knowledge, equanimity and tact never cease to amaze me. 
The staff at our Grand Lodge office, which includes R.W. 
Bro. James C. Guy, V.W. Bro. Douglas H. BHss and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 53 

five very efficient and courteous ladies, are a joy to work 
with. 



SPECIAL MENTION 

A very enthusiastic member of this Grand Lodge, 
V.W. Bro. Albert Batten was, in December 1976, made a 
member of the Order of Canada by Governor General 
Jules Leger — this was conferred in recognition of valua- 
ble work done in many countries on behalf of the League 
of Red Cross Societies. This well deserved recognition 
reflects credit on our Masonic Order and we extend the 
congratulations of Grand Lodge to this worthy recipient 
of that high honor. 

CONCLUSION 

What of the future of Masonry — of our great moral 
and benevolent Institution? It is interesting and perhaps 
informative to ponder this important prognosis and specu- 
late about it. The pessimists among us point out that we 
are losing members, that the members are losing interest, 
and that Masonry is losing its influence as well, i.e. its 
impact on the community. The optimists, however, point 
out that Masonry has always had its ups and downs, its 
waxing and waning, and it has persisted for centuries 
and will continue in the long run to progress as a great 
and good moral influence in the lives of men. 

The past is secure — Masonry has an illustrious 
history with monarchs themselves exchanging the scepter 
for the gavel — but what of the future? Joseph Fort 
Newton, the great Masonic scholar, wrote fifty years ago 
"to go on making men Masons as we are now doing by 
wholesale, without giving them an intelligent and authentic 
knowledge of what Masonry is, or what it means, with no 
definite objects beyond fellowship and philanthropy — 
objects to which other Orders are equally devoted — is 
for Masonry to lose, by ignorance or neglect what has 
been distinctive in its history and genesis, and invite 
degeneration, if not disaster." 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

It is, therefore, important that in our Lodges and in 
Grand Lodge we stress proper, efficient and knowledge- 
able Masonic Education so that our time is devoted, to 
a greater extent, to teaching the great moral precepts of 
Masonry and not just to the usual and sometimes only 
activity of Initiating, Passing and Raising. Entire meetings 
could and should be devoted to Masonic teachings, as 
indeed they are already in certain lodges. 

In order to persist and progress, I feel that Masonry 
must change in its relationship to society in general. By 
this, I do not mean that we as Masons should change 
our basic principles and high moral tenets to conform 
to modern society with its marked relaxation of the moral 
code, its denial of the sanctity of marriage, its ready ac- 
ceptance of common-law relationships, its tolerance of 
the use of alcohol and mood-altering drugs. Rather, we 
should work and strive to have society change to our 
high ideals. 



What is the present image of Masonry in the eye of 
a non-mason? If you converse with members of the so- 
called younger generation, there is no image — many of 
them have either never heard of Masons, or, if they have, 
consider us all Shriners, whom they have seen or at least 
know about. They know little or nothing about Craft 
Masonry. 



It is in our relationship to the community that we 
must change and, to a considerable extent, on this our 
future depends. In days past, even within the knowledge of 
some of our older brethren present, the most active 
men in any community were always known to be Masons. 
These men were prominent in local charitable drives, 
regional projects, church and civic government. Without 
blatantly advertising our Craft, it is encumbent upon us 
to be more extroverted in our outlook, not as introverted 
as we have become, so that it can truthfully be said that 
we are applying our great moral principles in a practical 
way to the life of our community. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 55 

It is my firm belief that Masonry, with its rich 
heritage of history and philanthropy founded on lofty 
principles of morality and with the proviso that we con- 
tinue to adhere to these excellent precepts, will continue to 
flourish, to prosper and to progress in the years ahead, 
but only if we can turn our sights more to the community 
and its needs and each of us take a more active part, 
as Masons, in the worthwhile activities of society in this 
modern world. 

Sincerely and fraternally, 

ERIC W. NANCEKIVELL, 

Grand Master.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 57 

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

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is customary in the proceedings of our Grand Lodge Com- 
munication to draw aside the curtain of memory for a brief 
moment and bring to mind those of our members who have been 
removed from our sphere of activity and have passed to the Grand 
Lodge beyond our sight, eternal in the Heavens and we pray the 
solemnity of this occasion may bind us yet closer to the ties of 
brotherly love. 

Let us remember with thanksgiving those who by their lives 
and vocation have helped to spread the ideals of peace and con- 
tentment, love and charity, throughout our Order; that encour- 
aged by their example we may be strengthened to hand on to our 
successors the noble traditions of our beloved fraternity. 

The Brethren whose memory we recall today lived in the 
faith transmitted to them from a previous generation and we live 
in the faith passed on by them. They have left us a beautiful 
memory of their intense dedication and service, all done with a 
quiet dignity. It is this continuity and sense of security that makes 
Freemasonry of such tremendous import on our lives. 

"And ever near us, though unseen 
The dear immortal spirits tread. 

For all the boundless universe 
Is life; there are no dead." 

We should find some measure of compulsion to offer thanks- 
giving and honour and glory unto the Almighty Creator that 
from ancient times He hath put into the hearts of men to make 
offerings and memorials. We who pass this way should be mindful 
that we benefit from the labours of our Brethren who have gone 
before and may thereby be encouraged to leave something of 
ourselves for future generations. 

In our search for inspiration, let us reflect briefly upon the 
writings of Brother Dr. Rob Morris, LL.D., (1818 - 1888), a 
writer and lecturer on Freemasonry and by universal consent — 
Masonic Poet Laureate. While strolling home from a visit with 
a neighbour he paused long enough to record on a scrap of paper 
what he chose to call — "The Level and the Square," in which 
he breathed out a depth of feeling, fervency and pathos, with 
brilliancy and vigor of language and expressed due faith in the 
immortal life beyond the grave. In part — 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

"There's a world where all are equal, we are hurrying 

toward it fast. 
We shall meet upon the level there when the gates of 

death are past; 
We shall stand before the Orient, and our Master 

will be there. 
To try the blocks we offer by His own unerring square. 

"We shall meet upon the level there, but never thence 

depart; 
There's a mansion, 'tis all ready for each zealous. 

faithful heart; 
There's a mansion and a welcome, and a multitude 

is there, 
Who have met upon the level and been tried upon 

the square." 

The passing of those we honour at this time and of those 
who will not be mentioned has brought sorrow and loneliness to 
relatives and many friends, nor has that period come to an end. 
May our words of deepest sympathy help ease the loss they bear 
and may it comfort them somewhat to know that others care. 

But when the great and good depart, 
What is it more than this — 

That man, who is from God sent forth. 
Doth yet again to God return. 

Such ebb and flow must ever be. 

Then wherefore should we mourn? 

It has been a rewarding experience to be the Chairman of 
your Committee on Deceased Brethren throughout the past year 
and with the concurrence of my twelve associates who have 
served the committee well, I express our profound thanks to 
the Most Worshipful the Grand Secretary and the Grand Lodge 
office personnel for the manner in which they assembled the 
statistical portion of this Report. We also acknowledge the 
efforts of the Lodge Secretaries and the District Deputy Grand 
Masters in despatching the pertinent details pertaining to a 
brother upon his demise. 

When all is done, and my last word is said, 

And ye who loved me murmur "He is dead," 

Let no one weep for fear that I should know 
And sorrow too that ye should sorrow so. 

In conclusion, our fervent prayer would be "We thank thee, 
O God our Creator, for the lives of Thy servants who have gone 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977

from us into Thy presence, those with whom we have shared a 
common love. We praise Thee for all that was good, for all that 
was kind, for all that was loving in their lives. We thank Thee 
for every good influence which proceeded from their lives, for 
the gift of friendship and for the spirit of helpfulness."

MEMORIAL SERVICE 

Grand Chaplain: 

The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the 

everlasting arms. Deuteronomy 33:27 
I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall 

stand at the latter day upon earth. Job 19:25 
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: yea, it 

is even he that shall keep thy soul. 
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy com- 
ing in, from this time forth for evermore. Psalm 
121:7,8 

Prayer of Invocation: 

Almighty Father, the source from which we come, the 
end to which we travel, the light and strength of our pil- 
grimage, and the repose of the holy and blessed dead, 
bind us, we pray Thee, in comradeship with the heroes 
and saints of every age. In this hour of solemn remem- 
brance, we think of our brethren who have faithfully lived 
and died, and especially those most near to us. Lift us all 
into light and love, and give us at last our portion with 
those who have trusted in Thee, and have striven to do 
Thy Will. 

And to Thy Name, with the brethren on earth and 
the brethren above, we ascribe all honour and glory. 
Amen. 

Psalm 23 (Reading responsively): 

1. The Lord is my shepherd; therefore can I lack nothing. 

2. He shall feed me in a green pasture, and lead me forth 

beside the waters of comfort. 

3. He shall restore my soul, and bring me forth in the 

paths of righteousness, for his Name's sake. 

4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow 

of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me, 
thy rod and thy staff comfort me. 

5. Thou shalt prepare a table before me in the presence 

of them that trouble me; thou hast anointed my 
head with oil, and my cup shall be full. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 73 

6. Surely thy loving-kindness and mercy shall follow me 
all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the 
house of the Lord for ever. 

Memorial Prayer (The brethren stand at the S. of F.) 

Almighty God, with Whom do live the spirits of 
them that depart hence in the Lord, and with Whom the 
souls of the faithful, after they are delivered from the 
burden of the flesh, are in joy and felicity; we praise and 
magnify Thy Holy Name for all Thy servants who have 
finished their course and kept the faith; beseeching Thee 
that it may please Thee, of Thy gracious goodness, shortly 
to accomplish the number of Thine elect, and to hasten 
Thy Kingdom, that we, with all those that are departed in 
the true faith of Thy Holy Name, may have our perfect 
consummation and bliss, both in body and soul, in Thy 
eternal and everlasting glory. Hear our prayer, O God, 
and let our cry come unto Thee. Amen. 

All respond : So mote it be. 

Prayer of Dedication: 

Almighty Father, by Whose grace we have life and 
in whose light we see light, mercifully grant that this hour 
of memory may be a mount of vision, from which new 
light shall fall upon our fleeting days; that we may think 
of our lives as sent from Thee, on Thy errand for services 
Thou hast appointed. 

Reverently, O God, we give ourselves to Thee in a 
new dedication. 

Fill our minds with light and our hearts with love, 
that we may serve Thee with patient faith and joyous 
confidence. Build our lives into Thy Temple of spiritual 
fellowship, and keep us as brethren steadfast in that 
fellowship. 

Make our days bright with Thy presence, rich in the 
fruits of the spirit, and tender in human ministry, that our 
lives may be fragrant with happiness. 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Use US as Thou wilt, our hands to do Thy work, our 
Ups to speak Thy truth, our lives to be gospels of Thy love 
and mercy; and to Thee be honour and glory, thanksgiv- 
ing and adoration, world without end. Amen. 

All respond: So mote it be. 

Benediction: 

May the blessing of the G.A.O.T.U. rest upon us 
and upon all our work and worship done in His Name. 
May He give us light to guide us, courage to support us, 
and love to unite us, now and evermore. Amen.

present stood up and were welcomed by the Grand Master.

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 have examined the statement of resources of the 
Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the Province of 
Ontario as at April 30, 1977 and statements of receipts 
and disbursements of the General Fund and the combined 
Memorial and Semi-Centennial Fund for the year then 
ended. My examination included a general review of the 
accounting procedures and such tests of the accounting 
records of your Grand Treasurer and Grand Secretary and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 75 

Other supporting evidence as I considered necessary in 
the circumstances. 

The securities of the General, Memorial and Semi- 
centennial Funds as set out in the respective schedules 
accompanying the Grand Treasurer's Report arc held 
and certified to under date of June 8, 1977 by the 
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. 

In my opinion, these financial statements present 
fairly the financial position on a cash basis of the Grand 
Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario 
as at April 30, 1977 and the receipts and disbursements 
for the year then ended in accordance with generally ac- 
cepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent 
with that of the preceding year. 

Yours fraternally, 

A. W. PARISH, F.C.A. 



GRAND TREASURER'S REPORT 

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: 

Once again I have the honour to submit the Grand 
Treasurer's report covering our latest financial year. 

We have had normal returns of income and expendi- 
ture with moderate and predictable increases in both 
areas. Last year's budget contemplated a substantial 
current deficit in our general account, but I am pleased to 
report that the actual shortage was negligible. Our publi- 
cation costs including printing for resale are included in 
current disbursements and if materials still held for sale are 
credited, we have closed the year with another operating 
surplus. 



76 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The increased per capita assessment enacted a year 
ago has been in force for the latter half of our year and 
in the current year will take full effect. Our reserves in 
the Memorial and Commutation Funds have increased 
moderately from Estate gifts and capitalized fees. By 
constantly replacing low-interest maturing securities with 
more productive new issues, we have realized a total in- 
vestment income which is the highest on record and contri- 
butes in financing the efficient functioning of our Grand 
Lodge. 

Our contributions to our disabled and needy Breth- 
ren and their dependents are moderate but considerable 
and we must always assume that our individual member- 
ship is also responding generously to the needs of others. 

As always, I am deeply indebted to the Grand 
Secretary and his staff for their helpful assistance through- 
out the year in facilitating the work of the Grand Treas- 
urer, and to the Chairman of the Committee on Audit 
and Finance for his ready and helpful counsel. More 
especially I would recognize the masterly performance 
of the Grand Lodge Auditor who gives us constant guid- 
ance with monthly statements of our accounts and pre- 
pares our annual financial statement. This includes 
schedules of the year's receipts and disbursements in the 
General, Memorial and Commutation Fund accounts as 
well as lists and valuations of our securities with sum- 
maries which are informative and comprehensive. These 
will be quoted in the following pages and are commended 
to your attention and study. 



Fraternally submitted, 



M. CLEEVE HOOPER, 

Grand Treasurer. 



Presented on behalf of 

the Grand Treasurer by the Grand 

Secretary.

REPORTS OF THE DISTRICT DEPUTY 
GRAND MASTERS 

The Reports of the 43 District Deputy Grand 
Masters were presented by the Grand Secretary and on 
motion by the Deputy Grand Master seconded by the 
Grand Secretary, they were received and referred to the 
Board of General Purposes. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL RELATIONS 

This Report was presented by M. Wor. Bro. G. E. 
Turner, and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by M. Wor. Bro. Turner, 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. 

M.W. Sir and Brethren: 

The problem of fraternal relations — so troublesome to nearly 
all Grand Lodges — again appears in the story of the proceedings 
of this Committee during the past year. Applications for recog- 
nition that have been held over from past years have been added 
to by applications from new quarters; and hope of developing 
any semblance of a uniform policy in the matter of recognition 
seems as distant as ever, even among our Canadian Grand Lodges. 
For the present, and probably for years to come, reliance must 
be placed on the good sense of individual Masonic authorities, a 
good sense that one hopes will lead to a reasonably correct course 
between a policy that may be too generous on the one hand, or 
in the alternative, to one that is too rigid. 

Certainly it is not unfair to state that at present there seems 
to be a danger in some quarters from generosity in this matter 
of recognition, a danger that appears to be conditioned by a too 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 97 

liberal conception of what is called "Universal Freemasonry". 
This has led in a few cases to an acceptance into certain folds of 
nearly everything that labels itself Masonic, no matter how political 
or anti-religious in its practices the suppliant organization may be. 
Surely this is a grievous error, one that we hope cannot be laid at 
the doors of Canadian Freemasonry. For us, and indeed for all 
English-speaking Freemasom"y, the practice of Masonry pure and 
undefiled, as laid down by the fathers, should be the sole yard- 
stick for acceptance into the household of the faithful. 

We have a very few requests on hand and I suggest that 
these be laid over until next year, not as a matter of procrastina- 
tion, but my feeling is that we should not be hasty in our actions. 
Again, we pay tribute to the late M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, 
for the outstanding contributions he made as Chairman of this 
Committee for so many years. 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Committee. 

GEORGE E. TURNER, 

Chairman.

PART I 
CONCURRENT JURISDICTION 

(A) Wellington District 

R.W. Brother Lloyd T. Millard reports that all lodges in 
Wellington District have voted in favour of concurrent juris- 
diction. 



98 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

In view of this information, your Committee recommends: 

1. That concurrent jurisdiction be established among the 
lodges comprising WelUngton District. 

2. That this concurrent jurisdiction shall become effective 
as of July, 1977. 

(B) Bruce District 

A survey has been conducted in Bruce District re concurrent 
jurisdiction. R.W. Brother E. J. Scarborough reports that all 
the lodges have unanimously requested concurrent jurisdic- 
tion. 

1. Your Committee recommends that concurrent jurisdic- 
tion be established among the lodges comprising Bruce 
District. 

2. That this concurrent jiu-isdiction shall become effective 
as of July, 1977. 

(C) Waterloo District 

In 1974, the Committee on Constitution and Laws moved 
that concurrent jurisdictional arrangements be approved on a 
three-year trial basis. This motion was supported by Grand 
Lodge. R.W. Brother T. R. WilUams now reports that the 
brethren of Waterloo District, comprising 15 lodges, are un- 
animously in favour of concurrent jurisdiction for the third 
consecutive year. 

In view of this information your Committee recommends:

as of July, 1977. 

(D) Sarnia District 

R.W. Brother H. Burton Johnson, District Deputy Grand 
Master for Sarnia District, informs our committee that after 
the vote was taken in the 21 lodges of the District, 17 voted 

in favour of concurrent jurisdiction and 4 against. 

In view of this information your Committee recommends: 

1. That concurrent jurisdiction be established among the 
lodges comprising Sarnia District. 

2. That this concurrent jurisdiction shall become effective as 
of July, 1977. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 99

Your Committee has carefully considered the voting result 
for concurrent jurisdiction in Windsor District. R.W. Brother 
Thomas E. Weaver reported that 13 lodges voted in favour 
of concurrent jurisdiction and 6 against, this to be on a trial 
basis. 

The Committee on Constitution and Laws recommends that 
in view of the distinct divergence of opinion amongst the 
lodges: 

1. That concurrent jurisdiction should not be granted at this 
time. 

(F) Peterborough District 

R.W, Brother Morgan Durnford of Peterborough District 
reports that all lodges within the District have been con- 
sulted re concurrent jurisdiction. Nine lodges approved for 
trial period, two opposed. One lodge abstained from voting: 

1. Yoiu: Committee recommends that concurrent jurisdiction 
be established within Peterborough District for a three- 
year trial basis with the stipulation that the matter be re- 
viewed at the end of the period. 

2. That this temporary concurrent jurisdiction shall become 
effective as of July, 1977. 

PART n 

CHANGING NAME OF NIPISSING CENTRE DISTRICT 

Proper Masonic procedure was followed in all lodges of 
Nipissing Centre District concerning changing the name to 
"Sudbury-Manitoulin District". 

All lodges were unanimous in supporting the change of name. 

1. The Committee on Constitution and Laws recommends 
that the former name "Nipissing Centre District" be now 
changed to "Sudbury-Manitoulin District". 

2. That this change be made effective July, 1977. 

PART m 
NOTICE OF MOTION 

R.W. BRO. WILLIAM S. McVITTIE 
P.D.D.G.M. 

The following notice of motion has been received for pre- 
sentation to Grand Lodge. 



100 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

"I hereby give Notice of Motion that I will move or cause 
to be moved at the Grand Lodge Communication of July 20-21, 
1977, the following Amendment of Section 11 — The addition at 
the end of the present Section 11, 'The maximum term of office 
of members of the Board of General Purposes shall be twelve 
years, specifically to apply to the twenty-eight members elected or 
appointed and not to include the Grand Master, Past Grand 
Masters, the Deputy Grand Master, the Grand Secretary and the 
Grand Treasurer, and shall be effective as of July of 1978'." 

Your Committee notes that the proposed amendment or 
alteration to the present Section 11 only refers to that section, 
which would make Section 1 1 inconsistent with at least one other 
Section of the Constitution, namely Section 33. Consequently, 
your Committee on Constitution and Laws reports that it would 
not be in order for this proposed Amendment to be presented to 
and considered by Grand Lodge at this Annual Meeting of Grand 
Lodge. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON MASONIC EDUCATION 

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

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: 

The purpose of the Committee on Masonic Education is: 

(1) to stimulate, supplement and support lodge and district 
osophy and symbolism of masonry. 

programmes about matters relating to the history, phil- 

(2) to arrange for the preparation and distribution of Ma- 
sonic literature and information. 

(3) to encourage the participation of brethren in Masonic 
education and information programmes in lodge and 
district meetings. 

(4) to provide assistance, when requested, such as helping to 
organize seminars and workshops, suggesting resource 
personnel for participation and attempting to react to 
other requests. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 101 

This report reviews the highlights of Masonic education for 
\'>16-11. It is compiled from the reports received from the District 
Deputy Grand Masters and from personal involvement in a number 
of districts. It is appropriate at the outset to thank the District 
Deputy Grand Masters and the supervisors of Masonic Education 
they appointed soon after the 121st Communication of Grand 
Lodge for the attention, direction and organization given to edu- 
cation and information programmes in each of the forty-three 
districts. 

The Committee is pleased to recognize the valuable contribu- 
tion to the overall education and information effort made by 
several brethren. Often these activities were not part of the organ- 
ized effort of the committee. The Grand Master, in eloquent 
manner, delivered addresses that were stimulating, challenging 
and informative. During the year he dealt with a large number 
of topics and in masterly manner educated and informed those who 
were in his presence. The Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, 
shared his expert capabilities in presenting information related to 
programmes with particular reference to the operation and ad- 
ministration of lodges. Tlie services of M.W. Brother W. K. Bailey, 
Custodian of the Work, were in great demand. Several districts 
held lodges of instruction and brethren benefited from the guid- 
ance, expert knowledge, and interpretation of this learned Mason. 
The kind of contribution made by the Grand Chaplain is illustrated 
by the following comment contained in the report of the District 
Deputy Grand Master for South Huron: "R.W. Bro. Scovil used 
as his topic at the District Divine Service The Romance of our 
English Volume of the Sacred Law'. This proved to be a real 
highlight as far as Masonic education is concerned." Masons of 
Ontario were singularly favoured by the presence of V.W. Bro. 
Harry Carr in our midst. His address "600 years of Craft Ritual" 
was delivered in a manner that will long be remembered by those 
who had the good fortune to hear him. V.W. Bro. Carr is recog- 
nized on a world-wide basis as a renowned scholar, author and 
speaker. 

The majority of Supervisors of Masonic Education were serv- 
ing for the first time. It is encouraging, however, to note that 
many of them had previous experience either at the lodge or 
district level. In twenty-two of the districts the District Deputy 
and the Supervisor of Masonic Education held a meeting at the 
district level to plan and organize a programme for the year ahead. 
Tn several districts the supervisor attended each lodge and partici- 
pated in an educational programme. Twenty-five districts held 
Masonic education nights. Twelve districts reported holdinq 
seminars or workshops to consider topics such as Masonry on the 
Move, Dare to be a Mason, Meeting the Challenge, and others. An 
encouraging aspect of the workshop approach is the trend for 
"reater involvement of larger numbers of brethren. Several districts 
where workshops have not been held expressed an interest in this 
kind of activity and are encouraged to plan for one in the year 
ahead. The new publication "Meeting the Challenge" has been 



102 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

enthusiastically received and will, I am certain, serve a very useful 
purpose. All districts report making use of the Fraternal Reviews, 
the Advance Proceedings, Beyond the Pillars and the First Grand 
Master. 

It has been the practice in previous years to choose a few 
examples of programmes offered in 1976-77 for inclusion in this 
report. Space does not make it possible to report on all the in- 
teresting programmes, but the following will give you a little idea 
about a few of the highlights. Frontenac District held its first 
workshop and dealt with the topics. Turning Discussion into De- 
cisions, Etiquette in the East, Preparation before the Meeting, and 
Effective Ritual Presentation. London East District at the fall 
meeting had addresses on the topics 'The History of Grand Lodge 
in the Province of Ontario" and "Whither Are You Directing Your 
Course?". In conjunction with the brethren of London West Dis- 
trict a schedule of inter-lodge visits was arranged between the 
lodges of the two districts to provide an opportunity for the 
brethren of one district to present Masonic education information 
when visiting the other district. In Nipissing Centre District the 
Supervisor of Masonic Education prepared ten papers for study 
and discussion and these were distributed to the lodges. The Super- 
visors of Ottawa Districts 1 and 2 joined forces and organized a 
programme for a meeting of the Masters'. Past Masters' and 
Wardens' Association. Officers from each district described the 
duties of their respective offices in their own words but within 
the framework of information contained in the book "Meeting the 
Challenge". The continuing planning committee of Waterloo Dis- 
trict provides for continuity of Masonic education programmes 
from year to year. It is interesting to note how well the brethren 
of Waterloo District responded to the opportunity to purchase 
books and reading material for their personal libraries. 

Interesting programmes were offered in each of the seven 
Toronto Districts. In an area where there is a large concentration 
of brethren it is not surprising that unique and imaginative pro- 
grammes are developed. The following serves to illustrate the 
variability of activities. Toronto District 1 had a programme 
"Hands Across the District", Toronto District 2 an address on 
European Masonry, Toronto District 3 arranged a special night 
dealing with "The Many Sides of Masonic Education"; Toronto 
District 4 organized a special night with a theme "Masonry, a 
Progressive Science". Toronto District 5 offered a multi-media 
presentation on the life and music of Mozart by R. Wor. Bro. 
Peter de Karwin, Toronto District 6 arranged an exchange of 
speakers between Willowdale and York lodges and Toronto 
District 7 chose the topic "The Meaning Behind the Ritual" for 
their special night. The foregoing in no way does justice to the 
extent of the programmes in the Toronto Districts but merely 
serves to illustrate the wide variety of topics discussed. 

In the questionnaire circulated to districts, one of the ques- 
tions was "What is the most talked about topic in Masonry in 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 103 

your district?" I find it interesting that more than half the lodges 
replied "attendance". Brethren does this not augur well for the 
future? In my view it suggests that the brethren present are con- 
cerned about what the absent ones are missing. It is appropriate 
to associate this concern about attendance with masonic educa- 
tion and information programmes because it reminds us of the 
continuing need to organize our efforts, so that Masonic educa- 
tion will be interesting, stimulating, and satisfying. 

I choose to close this report by making reference to an Edu- 
cation Night held in Toronto District 1. On that occasion the 
brethren from Toronto District 7 dramatized a masonic trial. A 
meaningful Masonic message was effectively communicated about 
our attitudes to one another as brethren. Because of the oppor- 
tunity and privilege of being a mason let us ask the question, 
are we continuously on Trial? It is refreshing and gratifying to 
know that if we are the verdict continues to be made in our 
favour. This is the message I take from what has happened in 
Masonic Education in 1976-77. The efforts have been sincere, the 
programmes have been effective, the brethren have participated, 
the response has been good, the verdict is favourable. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

N. R. RICHARDS, 
Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
BENEVOLENCE 

R.W. Bro. C. D. MacKenzie presented this report 
and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded by 
R.W. Bro. MacKenzie, 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: 

It is both a pleasure and a privilege to present this report on 
behalf of the committee. During the past year the work of 
benevolence in this jurisdiction has gone forward in a positive 
and pleasant way. 

This work, to paraphrase the general charge, is of a two- 
fold nature. Our first responsibility is to provide direct financial 



104 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

relief to those of our brethren, their widows and orphans who 
are in need of such assistance. There are one or two points 
concerning this that must be made. It is a common belief that 
in today's world of social benefits and reasonable affluence, it 
is rare to find people who are in financial want. Nothing could 
be further from the truth. While it is true that the Provincial 
and Federal Social Services can and do provide much assistance, 
there are many cases where this help is either not sufficient or 
not available for one reason or another. To these we are able to 
offer our help. It is also true that in many cases the assistance 
provided is only sufficient to make life barely liveable. To such 
people we can offer a small measure of comfort to help make 
their declining years a joy rather than a burden. Your committee 
recognizes these responsibilities and endeavours to discharge them 
in a manner that is both understanding of the applicants need 
for benevolence and mindful of our responsibilities to the fratern- 
ity at large. Grants are established at our Annual Meeting which 
was held this year in Hamilton on June 11 and 12. 



Our first responsibility at this meeting is to review the report 
from the Supervisor of Benevolence, Right Worshipful Brother 
James C. Guy. This report was most satisfactory and the details 
of what was accomplished during the year show that the work 
of benevolence in our Grand Lodge is being well looked after. 
Right Worshipful Brother Guy brings to his responsibilities a 
number of talents. His advice, his direct help in a personal way and 
his genuine concern for every person in difficulty is reflected in 
the manner in which he does his job. It has been my privilege 
to be closely associated with him through my capacity as 
Chairman and I want to express to him my personal appreciation 
and that of the Committee for a job well done. We are fortunate 
to have Right Worshipful Brother Guy acting in this capacity. 
He is uniquely qualified. 

A total of 108 applications were received for review. We are 
sorry to report that as usual a large number of these were either 
not complete or lacked sufficient detail for the Committee to 
adequately assess the needs of the applicants and establish a 
grant. We cannot over emphasize the need for complete inforrn- 
ation on each application for Grand Lodge assistance. When this 
is not provided the Committee is not able to properly assess the 
needs of the applicant and it must be deferred until our July 
meeting. As pointed out last year, it is remarkable how there 
always seems to be time to do the job properly the second time. 

A perusal of the reports of the last few years would indicate 
two things. First, while there have been fewer grants each year 
they are obviously of higher average value. This is accounted for 
in two ways. To begin with there is an increasing amount of 
social welfare available and hence fewer demands for our assist- 
ance. Secondly, your Committee is not unmindful of the ravages 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 105 

of inflation and naturally compensates for it in the amount of 
the grant. 

During the year ended April 30th, 113 grants together with 
11 interim grants were made in the total amount of $61,105.00. We 
estimate that in the year ahead $62,000.00 will be required for 
benevolent purposes and request that this sum be made available 
for that purpose. 

During the last year a number of donations and bequests 
were received for the Combined Memorial and Semi-Centennial 
Funds. These amounted to $8,461.25 and are gratefully ack- 
nowledged. 

Donations: 

Merrill Lodge No. 344 Centennial $ 100.00 

Western District (Regalia) 50.00 

Vienna Lodge No. 237 (Late Bro. F. Procunier) . 20.00 

Old Hamilton Blood Donors Association 11,31 

Connaught Lodge No. 501 (Late Bro. J. T. James) 15.00

Bequests: 

Cathedral No. 643 re T. M. Roberts Estate $ 2,008.33 

Estate late Bro. Edgar A. James 1,000.00 

Estate Calvin Flanders 5,236.61 



$ 8,244.94 
Total $ 8,461.25 



It was indicated earlier that our work was of a two-fold 
nature. The second — and one that has demanded much attention 
from your Committee — is the promotion of personal involve- 
ment by all Masons in the work of benevolence. We do this in 
several ways. Each Fall the Supervisor of Benevolence, together 
with members of the Committee, hold meetings at various points 
throughout the province. To these meetings our District Chairmen 
of Benevolence are invited together with as many Lodge Benevol- 
ent Chairmen and Senior Lodge Officers as can attend. These 
meetings have been conducted for several years and initially were 
used to introduce to our brethren the methods of completing 
applications for benevolence. With each passing year an in- 
creasing emphasis has been made on the need for encouraging 
personal involvement for the welfare of our brethren. We urge 
that each Lodge establish a Benevolent Committee and provide a 
Benevolent Fund for its use. WTiile more and more Lodges 



106 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

are doing this it must be reported that we have a long way to go 
to establish this throughout the jurisdiction. We are very grateful 
to those Lodges who have established such Committees and Funds 
and urge that the balance of our Lodges copy their example. 

Establishing such programmes requires the active assistance 
of both the District Deputy Grand Masters and District Chairmen 
of Benevolence. We are very grateful to them for the work they 
have done on our behalf. Without them it is certain we would 
not be making the progress we are. 

The Committee has once again asked that those brethren who 
have satisfactorily served as District Chairman of Benevolence be 
re-appointed to their office. The experience they have is in- 
valuable and should not be cast aside needlessly. We ask each 
newly elected District Deputy Grand Master to carefully consider 
this appointment. The brother occupying this office should be one 
who understands benevolence and appreciates the problems some- 
times faced by our members. 

Our meetings in Hamilton are always enhanced by the 
hospitality of the Past Masters' Association. Each year they 
provide refreshments for a Friday night coffee break and the 
Committee extends our deep appreciation for their kindness. 

Your Committee is happy to report that throughout the 
province more and more of our lodges are accepting their re- 
sponsibility and their obligation to provide assistance to their 
members. As evidence of this we would like to draw to your 
attention two of many such examples. A member of Elma Lodge 
in Monkton, Brother Prescott, died while at work on his farm, 
leaving a widow and six children. While ultimately the estate 
will provide for his family, there was and is an immediate need. 
His Lodge, recognizing this, made an appeal to their members 
and raised in excess of $200.00 to be presented to the widow. 
They then asked if we would participate and we were of course 
pleased to do so through the medium of an interim grant. 

In Frontenac District the plight of Mrs. Muriel A. R. 
Key was brought to the attention of the District Chairman of 
Benevolence. Mrs. Key is the widow of a Mason who, while 
resident in the area, was not a member of a Lodge in Canada 
but was in good standing in the Craft in Scotland. His passing left 
her without resources and our Chairman brought the matter to 
the attention of the Lodges in the District. A voluntary offering 
from an appeal made to three Lodges resulted in the sum of 
$423.00 being presented to Mrs. Key. We on your Committee have 
supplemented that until further aid is forthcoming. Through the 
efforts of members of the district employment has been obtained 
for her When she can return to work. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 107 

These two examples are chosen from many to indicate that 
our brethren realise that benevolence is their responsibility and 
are quite prepared to discharge it. The need exists all around us 
and no one is better equipped than you and your Lodge to look 
after these needs. We stand ready at all times to supplement and 
assist your efforts and your involvement will provide you with 
much personal satisfaction. 

The work done by the local Boards of Relief in the larger 
centres of our Province cannot be overlooked. In most cases 
they administer the grants made to our applicants and are con- 
stantly concerned about their welfare. We cannot express our 
appreciation too strongly for their help. In a similar manner 
benevolent organizations in our sister jurisdictions are always 
anxious to offer whatever help they can. The principal organiza- 
tion of this type is the Masonic Relief Association of United 
States and Canada, of which we are a member. We recommend our 
renewal of that membership. 

May I close with one comment. Your Committee members 
represent every area of the Province and come from many 
avenues of life. We deem it a great pleasure and privilege to 
participate in the activities of this Committee. The opportunity 
and the responsibility is not one which we take lightly and we 
are grateful to you for the confidence placed in us. We hope we 
have discharged our responsibility to your satisfaction. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

COLIN D. MACKENZIE, 

Chairman.

Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Steele, it was received 
and adopted. 



108 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

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: 

On behalf of the Committee on Printing and Supplies, I am 
privileged once again, to present this report. The committee is 
composed of the following District Deputy Grand Masters. Rt. 
Wor. Bros. L. E. Wight, G. A. Lang, H. B. Johnson, D. J. 
Blatchford, J. D. Jackson, M. A. Durnford, H. W. Walker and 
the undersigned as chairman. 

The following is a summary of the receipts and expenditures 
made by the Grand Secretary's office on behalf of the Committee.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 109 

The cost of Printing & Supplies has increased approximately 
$25,150.00 over last year's costs. This increase, however, can 
be attributed mainly to 2 major purchases, Meeting the Challenge 
$25,073.00, and 1 year's supply of Constitutions costing $6,325.00. 
This money will be recovered over a period of time as the books 
are sold. 

I would like to commend the Lodges on behalf of the Com- 
mittee for the excellent selling job done on our latest publication. 
In one year about 6,500 copies of Meeting the Challenge were 
sold. Not only was this a fine selling job, but it was also a fine 
tribute to the Masons who contributed so freely of their time 
and talents in producing such an excellent publication. 

I would like to solicit the assistance of the new D.D.G.M.s 
in promoting the sale of our publications during their term of 
office — First Grand Master, Beyond the Pillars, The History of 
Grand Lodge, and Meeting the Challenge. These books should be 
a must for every Mason's library. Your committee recommends 
that each Officer and Past Master own a copy of Meeting the 
Challenge. 

Once again we would like to thank the brethren of Norfolk 
Lodge No. 10, Simcoe, for their efforts in promoting the sale of 
the First Grand Master at their annual pilgrimage to the grave 
of our First Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. William Mercer 
Wilson. 

I would like to express the thanks of the Committee and my 
own personal thanks to our Grand Secretary, Most Wor. Bro. 
J. A. Irvine, for the efficient and capable manner in which he 
makes purchases on behalf of the committee. Without his fore- 
sight and judgement the expenses of this committee would be far 
greater than they are at the present time. 

We would also be remiss if we did not express our thanks to 
the very efficient staff in the Grand Secretary's office, for their 
efforts in displaying and promoting the sale of our publications. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted on 
behalf of the Committee. 

H. CAMERON STEELE, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE BLOOD DONORS' COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. R. J. 
Connor, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 



110 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Connor, it was received 
and adopted. 

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: 

For various reasons the Blood Donor Service of the 
Canadian Red Cross have had to eliminate some of their clinics, 
particularly in the areas outside of Metropolitan Toronto. Yet 
despite this, or perhaps because of it, two important results have 
happened. First, the final tabulation of results show a slight 
increase over last year, and second, "Operation Lifeline" is well 
underway. 

For those of you who do not know, "Operation Lifeline" is 
the project of the Toronto Masonic Districts to provide a mobile 
blood clinic for the Red Cross of Toronto. W. Bro. Paul Curry 
who conceived and delivered the project, and had it adopted by 
the 7 Toronto Districts, is very pleased with its progress. 

The interests of the Grand Lodge Blood Donor Committee 
have been handled most capably by our Grand Senior Warden, 
R.W. Bro. Ron Groshaw who has become a very valued member 
of the "Operation Lifeline" organization. We thank him for his 
efforts on our behalf and wish aU success to this ambitious 
venture. 

The District Deputy Grand Masters are to be congratulated 
on their selection of District Blood Donor Chairmen, as all have 
done an excellent job both on behalf of their district and of this 
committee. As in past years, several of these district chairmen 
have remained in office and we cannot speak too highly of these 
senior service veterans: R.W. Bro. Chas. Heels, Victoria District 
has dedicated 16 years in this endeavour; R.W. Bro. Cal. 
Krauter, North Huron District — 14 years; R.W. Bro. Wm. J. C. 
Noble, Nipissing Centre District — 13 years and W. Bros. 
Claude Osborn, Toronto 4 District and Elgin Workman, Grey 
District each with 6 years. To these 5 and the 12 others who are 
repeating in office, and to the 26 Masons who were initiated this 
year, we offer our sincere thanks. 

Here are the results of their labours along with last year's 
totals for your comparison.

A short mathematical check of these figures will show 
the following: The highest number of donations, 533, by 
Toronto 1 — W. Bro. John Glabais; the greatest increase in 
donations, 317, by Hamilton C — W. Bro. Ray Carrington; and 
the greatest percentage increase, 193%, by Sarnia — W. Bro. Mel 
Johnston. These brethren have apparently been more than diligent 
in their duty to provide these excellent results. 

We wish also to pay tribute to these brethren who are 
continuing to aid our blood donor cause — Bro. Tom Bailey, 
Keystone Lodge No. 412 who has now made 115 blood donations; 
W. Bro. Draper Martineau, Algoma Lodge No. 469 and W. Bro. 
Robert Cameron, Cobden Lodge No. 459, each with 105 



112 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

donations; Bro. Alvin Baker, Flower City Lodge No. 689 — 
75 donations; and a brother from Cataraqui Lodge No. 92, 
whose name we don't know but whose family made 14 donat- 
ions during this past year. Our heartiest congratulations to 
these dedicated donors. 

The brethren of London East District honoured their 
District Blood Donor Chairman of last year by electing him 
as their District Deputy Grand Master, and we hope that R.W. 
Bro. Bill Pellow has had a rewarding year in this office. 

It is our pleasure to read many of the lodge summonses and 
we note that most of them contain a paragraph about blood 
donors — when the next clinic is scheduled, a reminder to 
participate, and, of course, a plea to report to the lodge when 
you have given a donation. To the lodge secretaries and to the 
Worshipful Masters, thank you for helping to keep our cause 
constantly before your members. 

As has been mentioned before, joint clinics seem to produce 
good results. The 7 Toronto Districts again held their clinic and 
provided entertainment all day long by members from several 
of their lodges. Theme — "be entertained while being drained". 
Frontenac District joined with the Knights of Columbus for a 
very successful one-day clinic, and the two London Districts again 
held their one-day blitz clinic. The competition for trophies is 
another way to encourage donating by lodge members. Several 
districts report that trophies are a part of their program. Sault 
Ste. Marie has a city-wide trophy and in the four years of its 
history, the Masons have won it twice — congratulations — W. 
Bro. Bob Beaton. 

W. Bro. Ross Thomson of Ottawa 1 District feels that there is 
a communication gap between the brethren and their lodge 
Bloor Donor Chairman. Somehow a way must be found to have 
ALL of our members report their donations. He feels, as do 
many of us, that our brethren are participating in this program 
but they are not letting us know of their involvement. 

Charity, benevolence, brotherly love — all Masonic virtues 
and all virtues which can be exemplified by being a blood donor. 
Regular donations ARE essential to have the "gift of life" 
available when it is required. Put Brotherhood into Action by 
being a blood donor and make YOUR action known by telling 
the lodge of your participation. 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted.

Chairman. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 113 

REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. Wallace 
McLeod, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. McLeod, 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 the Library Com- 
mittee, begs leave to report as follows: 

Your Committee was composed of M.W. Bro. W. K. Bailey, 
R.W. Bros. H. J. Johnson, R. W. Kenney, C. E. Drew, G. H. C. 
Hardy, C. E. Frape, C. Torbet, A. D. Grant, J. J. Talman, C. D. 
MacKenzie, and V.W. Bro. C. W. Emmett, with the undersigned 
as Chairman. 

"There are at the present writing more than 100,000 men in 
the [Province of Ontario] holding membership in Masonic lodges. 
If there are seventy-five of this number who have made sufficient 
study of the Institution to which they belong to have awakened 
in themselves any glow of interest in its symbolism, its philosophy, 
or even its history, the fact is certainly not shown in the articles 
published in the Masonic press of this [province] or in the 
speeches delivered before the general public or within the tiled 
lodges. It is a lamentable fact that the general mass of our mem- 
bership [is] as densely ignorant of everything connected with 
Masonry, aside from the mere wording of the ritual, as the peas- 
antry of Spain and Mexico of the true history, biography and 
political philosophy of the Church of Rome." 

These harsh words are not mine. They are taken, with four 
slight changes, from a splendid book written more than fifty 
years ago, more than five hundred miles away (Blackmer, The 
Lodge and the Craft). Are they inappropriate to us here today? 
While you ponder them, let me summarize the Library's activities 
for the twelve months just ended. 

Our Librarian, Bro. WilUam J. McKee, of Runnymede Lodge, 
No. 619, Toronto, this year completed ten years of service. He 
has worked with three Chairmen, and all alike have testified to 
his tact, his kindness, his forbearance, his tenacity, and his co- 
operation. He continues to exhibit these virtues. He has been 
called on to bear many burdens, perhaps none greater than his 
present Chairman. But Bro. McKee responds willingly and 



114 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

cheerfully to every reasonable request, and even to occasional 
unreasonable ones. 

For the ninth year V.W. Bros. Charles S. Gulston and John 
F. Petherick have worked in the Reading Room Wednesdays and 
Fridays at noon-hour. We are, as always, greatly in their debt. 

Once again, with the aid of volunteer assistants, we have kept 
the Library open evenings. Several of those who helped last year 
could not continue, but we were able to enlist substitutes. Let us 
pay public tribute to these devoted Masons by listing their names: 
J. Gordon Baker (Mizpah, No. 572); Clifford J. Baxter (Dentonia, 
No. 651); Charles J. Bishop (Coronation, No. 677); George 
Blackie (Simcoe, No. 644); Brian E. Bond(Dentonia, No. 651); 
William S. Carter (Dentonia, No. 651); Ivan Collymore (Robert- 
son, No. 292); Clifford W. Gazley (Universe, No. 705); M. W. 
Hetherington (Acacia, No. 430); N. Coulson Malloy (Vaughan, 
No. 54), Robert Mcllroy (Riverdale, No. 494); Kenneth Mac- 
Lachlan (Transportation, No. 583); Brian McWhirter (Doric, No. 
316); David Nicholls (Canada, No. 532); Peter Taylor (Sham- 
rock No. 533); Paul Thomas (Mount Dennis, No. 599); Adriaan 
van't Hof (Astra, No. 682); Cal Waters (Maple Leaf, No. 600); 
Carroll E. Waldron (Saint Andrew's, No. 16). The group includes 
a good cross-section of Master Masons, lodge officers, Worshipful 
Masters, Past Masters, and past Grand Lodge Officers. Once again 
Bro. Gazley has been most helpful in serving as marshal. Working 
in the Library is a matchless opportunity, and we appeal for more 
volunteers. Many brethren have commented on the convenience of 
the new extended hours; and your Committee recommends that 
they be continued next year. 

Between May 15, 1976 and May 14, 1977, 266 visitors signed 
the register. During the same period 240 books were loaned to 
local patrons, and 180 were mailed to out-of-town users. In all, 
420 books were borrowed, compared with only 402 last year; 
the total number of borrowers was 133 — an increase of 28% 
over last year. 

During the year the Library's holdings were increased by 
seventy-eight books. Thirty-three were donated; among our 
benefactors we may signal Bro. Frank T. Beimett, the Grand Lodge 
of California, the Grand Lodge of Ohio, the Grand Lodge of 
South Dakota, Independent Royal Arch Lodge, No. 2, in New 
York, and the Supreme Council, A. and A.S.R., Southern Juris- 
diction. By bequest from R.W. Bro. Willard M. Gordon, a former 
Chairman of this Committee (1961-1967), we received two copies 
of Anderson's Constitutions, in the first edition of 1723, and in 
Noorthouck's revision of 1784. They will take their proud place 
in our small collection of rare treasures. The former is the most 
important and influential book on Masonry ever printed; every 
Book of Constitution published since then has been modelled on 
it. Of course the original edition is too precious to leave the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 115 

premises; but if you are interested, we have several facsimile copies 
which may be borrowed. 

In recent years the Library has distributed a certain amount 
of audio-visual material. It has been well received, and the time 
seemed ripe to increase our efforts in this area. We have therefore 
established an Audio-Visual Sub-Committee, under the Chairman- 
ship of V.W. Bro. Charles W. Emmett. His first project is to 
collect slides on "Masonry at Work in Ontario;" to this end, he 
has written to every District Deputy Grand Master in the juris- 
diction. We look forward with impatience to the completion of 
the venture. 

For some time your Library staff has been hampered in its 
efforts to provide adequate service by the fact that the catalogue 
was woefully out-of-date. This year we have begun in earnest 
to reclassify the collection. This will not be done quickly, but it will 
make the Library even more useful when it is completed. We have 
derived guidance, comfort, and support from two booklets, A. R. 
Hewitt's An Elementary Guide for Masonic Librarians (published 
under the authority of the United Grand Lodge of England, 
1965), and William L. Boyden's Classification of the Literature of 
Masonry and Related Societies (published by the Supreme Council, 
A. and A.S.R., S.J., 1946). 

In 1885, M.W. Bro. Hugh Murray remarked, "Our Order 
opens a wide field for investigation, and offers scope for the 
employment of talents of the most intelligent and cultivated 
mind. Its history . . . furnishes a theme, sufficient in itself, to 
fully employ the brethren in its research ... Its philosophy . . . 
supplies innumerable questions, which can only be answered by 
those who have made Masonry a study." The sentiments still 
command our applause. We desperately need a core of Masons 
who are concerned to learn of our rich Heritage, and tell of it to 
others. Inevitably your Library will play a vital role as a resource 
centre in any such process of education. 

We are often asked to name some good books which may 
safely be put in the hands of a new Mason. The information is 
available elsewhere, but is can hardly be repeated too often. One 
might begin with the four booklets, on the Petitioner, the Entered 
Apprentice Mason, the Fellowcraft, and the Master Mason, pub- 
lished by our Grand Lodge in 1975. Then one could add our 
Beyond the Pillars; every brother should have his own copy of 
these publications, which (together with the History of Grand 
Lodge, First Grand Master, and Meeting the Challenge) may be 
ordered from the Grand Secretary, Box 217, Hamilton LBN 3C9. 
There is Rollin C. Blackmer, The Lodge and the Craft; Carl H. 
Claudy, Introduction to Freemasonry, or his Old Tiler Talks, or 
his Foreign Countries; H. L. Haywood, The Newly-Made Mason, 
or his More about Masonry; Joseph Fort Newton, The Builders, 



116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

or his The Men's House; Allen E. Roberts, The Craft and Its 
Symbols or Oliver Day Street, Symbolism of the Three Degrees. 

If you want to read some fine Masonic fiction, turn to 
Rudyard Kipling's stories Kim, or "The Man Who would be King" 
(from Wee Willie Winkle), or "The Rout of the White Hussars" 
(from Plain Tales from the Hills), or "In the Interests of the 
Brethren" (from Debits and Credits). 

Are you planning to attend the Canadian Opera Company's 
production of Mozart's The Magic Flute this autumn? Prepare 
yourself by looking at our vocal score (with piano accompani- 
ment), or at Jacques Chailley, The Magic Flute: Masonic Opera. 

Do you care who have been Masons? We now have the four 
volumes of William R. Denslow's 10,000 Famous Freemasons, as 
well as Haywood's Famous Masons and Masonic Presidents, and 
R. E. Heaton's Masonic Membership of the Founding Fathers. 

Are you inquisitive about Masonry? Try A. R. Chambers, 
Questions and Answers; H. F. Inman, Masonic Problems and 
Queries; W. O. Peterson, Masonic Quiz Book; Ask me Another, 
Brother; H. V. B. Voorhis, Facts for Freemasons; or the newest 
and greatest of them all, Harry Carr, The Freemason at Work. 

Was your interest kindled in April when you heard W. Bro. 
Harry Carr talk about the development of our ritual? We have 
most of his source material: a reprint of The Regius Poem of 1390; 
Knoop-Jones-Hamer, Early Masonic Catechisms (a marvellous 
book); Carr, Early French Exposures; the expose, printed in 1760, 
known as The Three Distinct Knocks at the Door of Most Ancient 
Freemasonry, and a reprint of William Preston's Illustrations of 
Masonry (1775). We also have Bro. Cart's talk, on four cassettes, 
each twenty-five minutes long. 

Last year, for the convenience of those who wanted to buy 
books for themselves, we included a few addresses. Two have been 
changed: Masonic Book Sales is now Box 250, Pefferlaw, Ontario 
LOE INO; and the Masonic Book Club is now to be contacted in 
care of Louis L. Williams, 426 Unity Building, Bloomington, 
Illinois 61701. Another source of good books is the Educational 
Bureau, General Grand Chapter, Royal Arch Masons, Box 529, 
Trenton, Missouri 64683. It is never amiss to put in a good word 
for the Quatuor Coronati Correspondence Circle, which deserves 
the support of every serious Mason. The local secretaries are 
Professor J. S. Basarke, 59 Sandbourne Crescent, Willov/dale 
M2J 3A5 (for Toronto); Brian D. Stapley, 5754 Yonge Street. 
Apartment 410, Willowdale M2M 3T6 (for Ontario East); Oliver 
T. Flint, 22 Extra Street, Guelph NIH 1Y9 (for Ontario South and 
West); and John E. Taylor, Box 39, Hilton Beach POR IGO (for 
Ontario North). 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 117 

The Gentleman's Magazine for 1753 printed a series of 
"Questyons and Answeres, concerning the Mystery of Magonrye," 
with language cloaked in a false semblance of antiquity. Here is 
one quotation, restored to modem English. "Question. Do all 
Masons know more than other men? Answer. Not so. They only 
have right and occasion more than other men to know; but many 
do fail in capacity, and many more do want industry, that is 
necessary for the gaining all knowledge." Two hundred and twenty 
years later, the need for Masonic knowledge is still with us. The 
right to know is yours. Your Library can provide the occasion. 
Heaven knows, we're not in competition with anyone else. If you 
have access to Masonic books from other sources, we are content. 
We simply want you to know that the Library is there, and that it 
exists for you, for the Masons of Ontario — to meet your needs, 
to fill your requests, to provide you with reading material. If you 
want help, tell us. If our service is inadequate, tell us. If you know 
of a book we ought to have, tell us. 

Your Grand Lodge spends nearly five thousand dollars a 
year on the library, sixty per cent of that amount being set aside 
for rental. This is a lot of money, particularly when measured 
against the small number of our readers. Can we assume that 
the thousands upon thousands of Masons who ignore us do so by 
conscious choice, because they have no need of us? Would that we 
could! But how often do I hear a young Mason say, "Library? 
Masonic Library? What Library?" We cannot accomplish a thinft 
if nobody knows we're there. My Brethren, let me close with 
just one request. Will you see to it that every member of your 
lodge is at least aware that there is a Masonic Library? Otherwise 
our efforts are vain, our expenditures are wasted, our very 
existence is pointless. 

AH of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted on 
behalf of the Committee. 

WALLACE McLEOD, 

Chairman. 



REPORT ON THE REVISION 
OF THE CONSTITUTION 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. W. K. 
Bailey, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. Bailey, 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. 



118 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

On behalf of the special Committee appointed by the Grand 
Master in July, 1976, I have the honour to present the report on 
the reorganization and revision of the Constitution of Grand 
Lodge. 

Since 1972 -when the Grand Master requested R. Wor. Bro. 
H. Allan Leal to convene a committee to study a reorganization 
and revision with possible incorporation of the Rulings of Grand 
Masters into the Constitution proper, there have been two progress 
reports to Grand Lodge. The task has proven to be much more 
complex than was at first anticipated. 

Apart from one major revision undertaken in 1887, some 
alterations to about thirty rules and regulations in 1926 and de- 
tailed specifications for lodge and Grand Lodge regalia and in- 
signia in 1947, amendments to the constitution have been rather 
minor in nature in the one hundred and twenty-two years of 
Grand Lodge. 

A framework of reorganization was developed by R. Wor. 
Bro. Leal and his committee composed of M. Wor. Bros. W. K. 
Bailey, M. C. Hooper and H. L. Martyn and R. Wor. Bro. F. M. 
Cass. It was noted that of the over three hundred Rulings of 
Grand Masters listed on pages 135 to 169 of the 1972 Book of 
Constitution there were 127 repeats. The Committee recommended 
that the remainder be classified into three groups: 

(a) rulings to be deleted in that they were made with 
specific factual situations in mind and for the purpose 
of amplification of the by-laws and regulations of Grand 
Lodge; 

(b) rulings to be incorporated into the text without signifi- 
cant change; and 

(c) rulings to appear in amended form. 

Grand Lodge approved the recommendations in July 1973 and 
also the recommendation of the Grand Master that twenty-four 
rulings be rescinded forthwith. 

With the retirement of R. Wor. Bro. Leal from the Board of 
General Purposes in July 1976, the committee was reconstituted 
by the Grand Master, M. Wor. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell, with the 
following brethren as members, namely R. Wor. Bro. H. A. 
Leal, V. Wor. Bro. J. V. Lawer and Wor. Bros. G. T. Rogers and 
A. F. Rodger with myself as Chairman. During the past 10 
months our committee has held 20 meetings. A draft of a reorgan- 
ized and revised Constitution has been prepared for study and 
comment. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 119 

Our Committee recommends that Grand Lodge approve the 
printing of sufficient copies to supply one copy to each lodge and 
one to each member of the Board of General Purposes. The 
copies would be mailed early in September. The lodges and 
members would be requested to study the draft and be invited 
to submit suggestions for alterations or amendments thereto on 
or before January 1, 1978. 

Our Committee would then be obligated to take under con- 
sideration all submissions and to complete any unfinished re- 
organization and revision. On or before April 1, 1978 a notice 
of motion would be mailed or delivered to the Grand Secretary, 
Such notice of motion would propose that the present Constitution 
be rescinded and that the proposed one be adopted. It would be 
expected that Grand Lodge would set aside at least one entire 
day of the 1978 annual meeting to discuss the Constitution sec- 
tion by section. 

It will be noted that the proposed draft submitted for your 
consideration does not contain mention of the following topics: 

(a) The Charges of a Freemason: pages 2 to 11 — no 
changes contemplated. 

(b) Summary of Ancient Charges: pages 11 to 13 — no 
changes contemplated. 

(c) Masonic Clothing: pages 82 to 106 — very few, if any 
changes contemplated other than a web belt to replace 
the rope girdle on all aprons and measurement specifi- 
cation to be metric. 

(d) Rules respecting Trials: pages 107 to 122 — awaiting 
review by the Committee on Grievances and Appeals. 

(e) Rules respecting Grants for Benevolence: pages 122 to 
126 — awaiting review by the Committee on Benevo- 
lence. 

(f) Prayers: pages 127 to 128 — deletion proposed since they 
are in the Work. 

(g) Charges to E. A., F. C. and M. M. candidates: pages 
128 to 133 — propose that since each is an essential part 
of the degree that they be deleted and printed in the 
Work which will likely be up for printing in 1978 or 
1979, 

(h) Forms: pages 169 to 174 — few, if any changes, con- 
templated. 



120 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Any changes in the import and content of the above-mentioned 
topics will appear in the notice of motion. 

The recommended procedure for study, comment and de- 
cision on the Constitution will of necessity mean considerable 
expense for printing and distribution of the two drafts. Our 
Committee, however, is of the opinion that the anticipated in- 
terest, participation and contribution by many brethren will more 
than justify any additional costs to Grand Lodge. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. V. LAWER 

H. A. LEAL 

G. T. ROGERS 

A. F. RODGER 

W. K. BAILEY, Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
THE CONDITION OF MASONRY 

This report was presented by V.W. Bro. Norman E. 
Byrne, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by V.W. Bro. Byrne, 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: 

On behalf of the Committee on the Condition of Masonry 
it is a distinct privilege for me, as its chairman, to present the 
Report on the Condition of Masonry to this 122nd Annual Con- 
vocation of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of 
Ontario. 

The members of this committee acknowledge with gratitude 
to the Grand East, the distinct privilege which is ours, to have 
been appointed to this committee and thereby given the oppor- 
tunity to report to this distinguished Grand Lodge on the 
general condition of Masonry therein as found throughout this 
Grand Jurisdiction by those zealous and dedicated Masons, the 
Past District Deputy Grand Masters, who have represented our 
beloved Grand Master in every part of Ontario. 

A reading of the several reports discloses without exception 
that each and every District Deputy Grand Master has under- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 121 

gone a year of hard and satisfying work, enjoyed a myriad of 
experiences in Masonry, never to be forgotten, and offers a 
humble vote of thanks to those, who by the exercise of their 
Masonic franchise, caused each of them to be elected to their 
high and important offices, coupled with sincere gratitude to the 
Most Worshipful, the Grand Master for confirming their respective 
elections. 

On a personal note I deem my appointment as chairman of 
the committee a high honour and a challenge, as I follow in the 
immediate footsteps of R.W. Bro. H. Allan Leal, a man of great 
physical stature and of even greater capacity for dedicated effort 
and an erudite ability of summarizing in most readable fashion 
the thousands of details contained in the various reports of each 
District Deputy Grand Master. These reports, in addition to con- 
taining the factual summary of lodge facilities, membership, 
advancement in knowledge through various forms of Masonic 
Education, comments on the ability of Worshipful Masters and 
junior officers to press ever forward by dedicated and tireless 
efforts, demonstrative summaries of the real existence of Masonic 
charity by the giving of blood, of money, but most importantly, 
by the giving of self, contain countless resumes of the results of 
innovative ideas, by which Masonic rulers of the Craft have 
sparked the interest and a new awareness of the great benefits to 
be derived from Masonic association into those members of our 
Fraternity who, through lack of attendance and participation in 
lodge meetings and affairs, have missed much of the many great 
and wonderful things life has to offer mankind in this rapidly 
changing world. 

The report of each District Deputy recalls with pride and full 
District support and appreciation, the respective occasions, in fact 
the highlight of the year, when each District was able to welcome 
warmly into their midst, our beloved Grand Master M.W. Bro. 
Dr. Eric W. Nancekivell, as he dedicated a new Temple, con- 
stituted and consecrated a new lodge, addressed the brethren on 
the occasion of a special anniversary or happening, or simply 
joined the brethren in lodge for some moments of fraternal 
fellowship. Everywhere he travels, and he seems to travel every- 
where, he has been a living inspiration to his Masonic brethren 
as accompanied by his distinguished colleagues in Grand Lodge, 
he brings to each brother a real feeling of warmth and affection, 
a witty story, a friendly handshake and a lasting sense of frater- 
nity. May the Great Architect of the universe spare him and 
them for many years, that their service to Freemasonry may 
become a by-word. There are many brethren who have taken 
the time and interest to reflect on man's destiny in this year 
1977, to acknowledge that man's modern lifestyle will respond 
to new concepts and novel ideas and yet have discovered that in 
a rapidly changing world, much pleasure, satisfaction and com- 
forting stability is to be gained by a re-dedication to the time 
honoured principles and ancient landmarks that each of us, as 



122 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Masons, have, by our own individual voluntary obligation, sworn 
to maintain and uphold. 

Your committee extends its sincere thanks to the tremendous 
efforts the respective chairmen of Masonic Education Committees 
throughout the province have put forward this year under the 
very capable guidance of R.W. Bro. N. R. Richards, Chairman of 
the Committee of Masonic Education of Grand Lodge. It is safe 
to say on perusing the reports of the several District Deputy 
Grand Masters that all of us have had the opportunity to im- 
prove in Masonic Knowledge and wisdom at very regular intervals 
in every district. Masonic education sometimes in elaborate 
form and often in short and simple presentation, has now become 
an important part of almost every lodge meeting. 

Several of the Districts conducted workshops to extend in- 
dividual knowledge, explain traditional portions of the ritual, 
delve into how modern methods of communication can create a 
better understanding of our history, how good business and fin- 
ancial planning can remove doubt and uncertaintv in a lodge's 
ability to meet ever increasing costs, and how each of us can 
demonstrate to our friends, our neighbours, and our business 
associates, why Masonry is not just a moral association of men, 
but a real way of life. At the risk of picking out one such pro- 
gram over many others, which reaped real benefits, your com- 
mittee extends its congratulations to Toronto District 1 for a 
repeat of a Masonic workshop, instituted last \ear but with a new 
theme to entice the many, who were in attendance to participate 
again this year. 

Your committee is pleased to report that the brethren who 
met in the East Toronto Masonic Temple, were, by stint of hard 
work, personal sacrifice and an energetic organization, able to 
overcome the disastrous effects of a fire that damaged their 
Temple in February, 1977. 

Your committee is pleased to go on record in extending 
fraternal congratulations to three new lodges which were consti- 
tuted and consecrated in the past year: in Toronto District 1 — 
Mount Moriah Lodge Number 727; in Waterloo District — 
Cambridge Lodge Number 728; in Toronto District 3 — Friendship 
Lodge Number 729. A new research lodge is presently being 
formed in Waterloo District hailing by the name Heritage Lodge. 

It is encouraging to note that many of our lodges are exam- 
ining their dues and membership fees structure in the light of 
today's rapidly escalating costs. Caution must be observed in not 
taking the easy road, leaving dues in their present amount, just 
because the lodge has today funds to meet current expenses. Some 
lodges have taken a more realistic view by looking down the road 
a few years, when greatly increased taxes, which may result from 
the new assessment program in Ontario, may eat up presently 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 123 

adequate resources and create for the brethren of 1980 a serious 
financial problem. Action today may yet well forestall a calamity 
in just a few short years. Much has been said by District Deputy 
Grand Masters and by those Grand Lodge officers charged with 
Grand Lodge financial planning that we, as Masons, may well be 
"selling ourselves too short" in the long run. How much do we, 
as individuals, spend each year for rest and relaxation, to support 
our church, to provide extra luxuries and convenience, to main- 
tain membership in golf, curling, tennis, squash and sailing clubs, 
to indulge in personal extravagances, for travel? Each facet of 
life has a price or a cost. Some may suggest that we, as Masons, 
have not put as much importance on maintaining active, finan- 
cially sound and healthy lodges as well we might. A word to the 
wise should be sufficient. Each of us is called on to personally 
examine his own personal, financial priorities and take such steps 
as will ensure for future generations a happy and precious 
heritage — a Masonic lodge that stands out in our community for 
all to see and admire. 

Your committee is pleased to see that Masonry in Victoria 
District has taken a turn for the better as a result of the brethren 
being able to meet in the new accommodation afforded in the 
new Temple at Coboconk. Our congratulations to those who by 
personal sacrifice and organized effort brought this Masonic 
dream into reality. 

When each of us entered the Masonic portals of our mother 
lodge for the first time we were actively put to the true test of 
Masonic charity and realized personally, many for the first time, 
the plight of those, who, through no fault of their own, had not 
been blessed with too large a measure of this world's goods. 
Charity is one of our landmarks and your committee is indeed 
pleased to see a continuance and an expansion of the custom of 
making a memorial donation to the Masonic Foundation of 
Ontario on the death of a lodge brother, where floral tributes 
have been the custom in the past. What an excellent method of 
enshrining the memory of a departed brother, by investing in 
the future of some young person whose contribution to life as a 
result of being able to continue in studies will reap dividends 
that will benefit humanity for years to come. 

Each of us should personally make our goal each year a 
contribution to our Masonic Foundation, a continuing re-affirma- 
tion, even though it be small, of our obligation to love our 
brother. 

At this time of year, when we, as Canadians, celebrate our 
national birthday, our attention is focused to the reports of the 
District Deputies, to those lodges who have been favourably 
blessed with the realization of one hundred years of service to 
mankind and to the Great Architect of the Universe. Your com- 
mittee, on behalf of us all, extends congratulations to the lodges 



124 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

who this past year have venerated tradition, emblazoned their 
regalia with a glint of gold and celebrate their first one hundred 
years. 

The acknowledgement of wisdom and the elegance of 
antiquity is passed on to St. John's Lodge No. 17 and Moira 
Lodge No. 1 1 on attaining one hundred and seventy-five years of 
service to Masons in Ontario — congratulations. 

The Library Committee of Grand Lodge is composed of 
dedicated Masons who have taken upon themselves the arduous 
task of disseminating Masonic information by making known to 
all who would listen the many great treasures of learning, we 
as Masons have so easily available in our Masonic Library in 
Toronto. Books, audio visual aids and presentations, slides, and 
taped addresses are yours for the asking and the District Deputies 
repeatedly report that while many lodges have large or small 
libraries, many of our brethren are using this most interesting 
facility and thereby enlightening themselves and in most cases, 
extending that enlightenment on to others. 

Where lodge libraries are very small or non-existent, some 
of our District Deputy Grand Masters have presented to each 
lodge on the occasion of their official inspection, a current vol- 
ume of one of our new and appealing Grand Lodge publications 
as an incentive to the starting of a Masonic Library in each 
Masonic lodge. 

The brethren of Toronto Districts have done a great service 
to their community by establishing "operation life line", a cam- 
paign to purchase and equip a mobile blood donors' unit in the 
Metropolitan Toronto area to assist the general public in the 
giving of blood — the gift of life. Your committee extends thanks 
to those energetic Masons who would rather give than receive. 

The reports of the District Deputy Grand Masters are full 
of comments and observations of new and useful ideas and pro- 
grams to stimulate and maintain membership, reduce dues arrears 
to an absolute minimum, assist lodge secretaries in the exercise 
of their continuing responsibilities and increase lodge funds for 
special purposes and objects. Your committee deems it advantage- 
ous to report on some of the more imaginative ones. The recording, 
storage and safekeeping of lodge minutes and records sometimes 
poses a problem when lodge records go back for many years. 
One lodge has found the microfilming of these minutes and 
records an economical yet safe and secure method of preserva- 
tion. The films are readily available when needed for historical 
purposes, yet small in physical size for convenient storage. 

In these days of new concepts and laws in the recording of 
the ownership of real property, your committee recommends that 
lodges consider favourably the ownership of Masonic Temples, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 125 

often in the past, recorded in the names of individual trustees, 
be held in non-share capital corporations incorporated under 
Ontario law, operated widiout profit, by a board of directors, 
capable of the change in personnel made necessary by the frail- 
ties of human existence. The office of the Grand Secretary is 
ever willing and able to render much assistance in the form and 
set up of these Masonic holding corporations and has assisted 
many new Temple corporations to get their start in ventures of 
this nature. Your committee recommends that early contact 
should be made with the Grand Secretary before proceeding 
legally in this area. 

One lodge has reduced its dues arrears to zero by the aid of 
a special "dues envelope" forwarded with the lodge summons to 
those Brethren who have not paid their current membership fees, 
serving as a specific reminder to those whose memory need be 
jogged and making it easy for a member to transmit his payment 
in a timely fashion. 

Some Masters have used, with great success, simple little 
"one liners", items of Masonic education, which further our 
knowledge and understanding of our Craft, take little time to 
digest, and fill a gap in the lodge program arising out of emer- 
gency or unforeseen circumstances. Some careful planning and 
research by those whose responsibility is Masonic education, 
can make a meeting run smoother and enlighten the Brethren at 
the same time. 

For years, members whose interest has waned for one reason 
or another, has caused us all concern and anxiety. Several of the 
reports point out the success "fellowship visitation" programs 
have reaped. Members on emergent meeting nights visit sick and 
older members and those who have not been out to lodge for a 
while, thereby giving these Brethren a real reason for knowing 
that their lodge Brethren care and are concerned, and at the 
same time, have afforded all the opportunity to exchange news 
of lodge affairs, enquire as to the health and the member's physi- 
cal ability to get out to lodge. A personal visit to a member in 
his home is only an extension of lodge visitation and is a real 
way of keeping the spirit of Masonry alive and well, not only in 
the hearts of those who receive the visit, but those who have the 
opportunity of making it. Your committee also recommends that 
before a member is suspended for non-payment of dues, a per- 
sonal visit is almost a necessity to enlighten the lodge of any 
particular problem that may be present which may have caused 
the member to fall into arrears. It also serves well the preceding 
purposes of renewing old friendships and encouraging a brother 
to attend lodge more regularly, if possible. 

We note, with interest, how often in all parts of Ontario the 
constant accumulation of household goods or ornaments has pro- 
moted the new concept of "garage sales". A timely device for ex- 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

changing, what to one person is now an object which must be 
stored, dusted off and moved from time to time, into a unique 
purchase of a needed item, often hard to find, which is just the 
thing to trim that oft-neglected hedge, parts to repair an other- 
wise good appHance, or a knick-knack that will look so well in 
that '"special" shelf or in that awkward corner of the room. Here 
is an obvious way to "clean house" for lodge members and at the 
same time, a painless method of raising funds for that special 
lodge project and fun for all to boot. 

Your committee is encouraged by some reports that our 
Fraternity is meeting with more acceptance by the young men in 
our society. Though Masonry competes for the attention of young 
men with sports and athletic programs, night-time extension 
courses and television and other more material distractions, let 
us continue our efforts to attract young men, for it is this new 
generation that abounds with energy and which will provide us 
with the leaders of tomorrow. 

One must compare the zest and exuberance of youth with 
the wisdom and knowledge of age. Your committee acknowledges 
the debt we, as Masons, owe to so many of our brethren who 
have been recognized by receiving Grand Lodge Jewels as out- 
ward tokens of their many years of service to the Craft. Each 
District Deputy has expressed what great pleasure they take in 
the presentation of these long service jewels to those of our 
Brethren who have earned the right to wear them. 

Our sympathy goes out to the Brethren in St. Thomas District 
as they mourn the passing of V.W. Bro. Dr. George Kennedy 
who, until his death, at the grand age of 102 years, rendered con- 
tinuous service to the Brethren in his District. 

Your committee would be remiss in its duty if it did not 
record, with sincere appreciation, the fine efforts of all the District 
Deputy Grand Masters, the District Secretaries, and the District 
Chaplains. Our gratitude is also recorded to the respective chair- 
men of District Committees on Masonic Education. Benevolence 
and Blood Donors. These Brethren are the mainstay of our 
Fraternity, whose energetic and dedicated effort is an inspiration 
to us all and who, by their leadership and the results achieved, 
have made our Grand Lodge the envy of all who behold. May 
the most high continue to prosper their united endeavours. 

Your committee, in closing this report of the many happenings 
in this, our fair Province of Ontario, and in our beloved Grand 
Lodge in the Masonic year now closing, has great pleasure in 
stating unequivocally that when examined in fine detail, one can 
sometimes see that problems and challenges have caused many 
concern and have, at times, stretched the duties of leadership to 
"bow string tightness" yet in the overall picture, the dedication 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 127 

and self-sacrifice of countless thousands of Masons, working to- 
gether in a spirit of harmony, peace and goodwill, has over- 
come all difficulties and dangers and has so honed and polished 
the condition of Masonry in this Grand Jurisdiction so that it 
shines forth with a brilliance that will clearly light our way with 
certainty into the dawn of another Masonic year. 

May I, on behalf of the committee, extend my sincere 
thanks and appreciation to M.W. Bro. Jack Irvine, Grand Secre- 
tary, and his staff for the many courtesies extended to your 
committee during the year and particularly during the compila- 
tion of this report. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted on 
behalf of the committee. 

NORMAN E. BYRNE, 
Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. G. E. 
Turner, seconded by M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright; it was 
received and adopted. 

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

Brethren: 

Your Committee extends smcere congratulations to our 
Grand Master on the zeal and dedication which he has exhibited 
in discharging the duties of his office during the past year. The 
Grand Master or his representative has visited many of the Grand 
Jurisdictions and has devoted a great deal of time and energy 
in cementing fraternal relations between our Grand Lodge and 
those Grand Lodges with which we are in amity. 

Your Committee congratulates our Grand Master on the 
many well-earned and well-deserved honours which he has re- 
ceived and particularly on filling the Chairmanship of the 
Conference of Grand Masters of North America. It was a signal 
honour and one which our Grand Master richly deserved. 

We recognize and wholeheartedly support the warm welcome 
extended by our Grand Master to our guests from other Grand 
Lodges and concordant bodies. 

Your Committee shares with the Grand Master the sadness 
on the deaths of so many of our brethren and particularly R.W. 
Bro. Kipp and V.W. Bro. Kennedy. These brethren have served 
Masonry well and will be long remembered in their Lodges and 
Districts. 

Your Committee approves the granting of Past Rank to those 
brethren listed in his address. Your Committee also approves all 
appointments made by your Grand Master. We particularly wish 
to join with the Grand Master in extending congratulations to 
those veteran Masons who have served our fraternity for 50 years 
or more and also those who have been a Past Master for 60 years. 
Your Committee also joins with the Grand Master in congratulating 
the recipients of the William Mercer Wilson Medal, may they 
wear it long and proudly. 

Your Committee approves the donations authorized by your 
Grand Master, especially commending him on the donation to 
the striken brethren in Cobalt, Ontario, which was ravaged by 
a severe fire. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 131 

Your Committee agrees whole-heartedly with the recom- 
mendation of the Grand Master that R.W. Bro. Eric C. Horwood 
be appointed an Honorary member of the Grand Lodge Board 
of General Purposes. We agree that Grand Lodge is indeed for- 
tunate to have men of the calibre of Bro. Horwood on our Board. 



Your Grand Master concludes with mention of the contribu- 
tions which certain colleagues have made during his term of office. 
He also writes very fully and coherently on the future of Masonry 
and this particular section should be read over and over again. 

Your Committee recommends that Grand Lodge confirm all 
that the Grand Master has reported in his address and your 
Committee joins with all the brethren in thanking him for his 
stellar leadership during the past two years and wishing him long 
life and good health. 



GEORGE E. TURNER, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. P. S. Mac- 
Kenzie, Chairman; on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. MacKenzie, 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: 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals presents its 
report in the following parts: 



1. ESPANOLA LODGE No. 527, vs. BRO. GERALD 
STANLEY SHEA. 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

A charge of unmasonic conduct was laid in the Lodge against 
Bro. Gerald Stanley Shea under Rule 1(P) alleging that the 
accused had been guilty of a public crime involving moral turpi- 
tude in that he had been charged initially with murder, con- 
victed at the Town of Whitby on the 18th of April, 1975 of the 
included offense of manslaughter, and sentenced on the 26th day 
of May, 1975 to twelve years in a penitentiary. The offense with 
which Bro. Shea was charged was committed on or about the 14th 
day of July. 1973. His first Court appearance seems to have been 
on April 18, 1974, when a plea of Not Guilty was entered by the 
accused. On April 26, 1974, a mistrial was declared and the 
accused was remanded to May 27, 1974 for trial. On that date, the 
matter was further remanded for trial at the next Assizes of the 
Court at Whitby. On October 8, 1974, the case was further ad- 
journed, at the request of the Crown, by reason of the unavail- 
ability of a vital witness. Trial commenced on January 13, 1975, 
the accused entering a plea of Not Guilty. On January 20, 1975, 
after trial, the jury returned to report they could not agree and the 
case was then traversed to the next assize at Whitby. On April 14, 
1975, the accused again entered a plea of Not Guilty and on 
April 17, 1975, he was found fit to stand trial by jury. As indi- 
cated above, on April 18, 1975, a jury returned a verdict of 
Not Guilty to murder but guilty of manslaughter. 

This rather extensive explanation of the events is given to 
account for the delay in processing this complaint by Espanola 
Lodge. Quite properly, they could not proceed with a hearing until 
a trial had taken place and a verdict delivered in the Criminal 
Court. Great difficulty was then encountered by the Lodge's 
Secretary in attempting to discover where Bro. Shea was incar- 
cerated. However, in June of 1976, Bro. Shea was served by 
registered mail at his last known place of residence in the city of 
Toronto pursuant to Rule 5, this residence being out of the juris- 
diction of Espanola Lodge. A Masonic Trial was held on 
September 8, 1976, at an emergent meeting of the Lodge. Bro. 
Shea was not present and a well skilled brother was appointed to 
represent him. There was little however that this brother could 
urge on Bro. Shea's behalf as the evidence at trial consisted of a 
Certificate of Conviction issued out of the Supreme Court of 
Ontario office for the Judicial District of Durham. Espanola 
Lodge found Bro. Shea guilty of the charge as laid and voted for 
indefinite suspension and recommended to Grand Lodge that he 
be expelled. 

Your Committee have been in communication with the offi- 
cers of Espanola Lodge since 1975 and are well aware of the 
difficulties they have experienced in attempting to properly pro- 
cess this charge. While there have been some deviations from 
strict compliance with our rules of procedure, in view of all the 
circumstances and the delay, frustration and difficulties experi- 
enced by the Lodge, your Committee is of the view that any 
technical objections to the regularity of the proceedings should be 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 133 

waived, and the action of the Lodge approved. It is therefore 
recommended that Bro. Gerald Stanley Shea be notified to attend 
the next Annual Communication of Grand Lodge to show cause 
why he should not be expelled and in the meantime, the sentence 
of indefinite suspension should be continued. 

This is the only case for presentation to Grand Lodge at this 
Communication. However, during the course of the year, your 
Committee has been consulted with regard to many other matters 
of concern to our Constituent Lodges and to their Officers. Our 
most pressing problem at the moment is the obvious reluctance 
of Lodges to proceed with charges involving offences under 
Rule 1(S)— 

"Adultery and all lascivious association, whether with the 
relative of a Mason or with a stranger." 

This problem has been adverted to on many occasions in our 
reports to Grand Lodge. Regretfully, our suggestions do not seem 
to have been widely acceptable. The present permissiveness of 
society generally seems to engender a reticence in our members to 
act, even in the most blatant cases of breach of this fundamental 
precept of our Order. The incidence of members of Lodges living 
in a flagrant common law relationship is widespread. Yet, their 
brethren ofttimes refuse to take any action, even in the face of 
incontrovertible proof of their continued violation of their 
Masonic Obligations. The situation has become so serious that 
in two instances your Committee has regretfully been forced to 
recommend to the Grand Master that he establish a commission 
to investigate the continued refusal of Lodges to discipline their 
errant brethren. 

Adherence to a strict moral code is one of the first pre- 
requisites of our Order and one of our ancient landmarks. Two 
excerpts from our ancient charges delineate our duty: 

"A Mason is obligated by his tenure to obey the moral law" — 
"You are to act as becomes a moral and wise man." 

Notorious violations of this fundamental precept result in 
adverse publicity for the Constituent Lodge and an insidious de- 
terioration of the unenviable reputation universally accorded our 
Order in our Communities. It would therefore appear mandatory 
that every officer and member of our Lodges should be prepared 
to assume the often unpleasant task of recommending and pur- 
suing prompt and firm disciplinary action against erring Brethren. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

P. STUART MacKENZIE, 
Chairman. 



134 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE MASONIC FOUNDATION 
OF ONTARIO 

M. Wor. Bro. W. K. Bailey presented the following 
report. On Motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded 
by M. Wor. Bro. Bailey, 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: 

On behalf of The Masonic Foundation of Ontario, I, as 
President of the Board of Directors, have the honour to present 
the report of the Fourteenth Annual Meeting of The Foundation 
which was held at 9:30 a.m., July 19, 1977, in the Royal York 
Hotel. 

At the end of the fiscal year, April 30, 1977, total assets 
were $254,396.67, an increase of $21,219.07 from one year ago. 
Included in the assets are bonds having a cost value of $247,402.50 
and a par value of $255,000.00. Interest from investments was 
$15,985.00, an increase of $2,766.34 over a year ago. 

Disbursements for the year were $11,075.00 in bursaries to 
students in post secondary school institutions and $2,320.00 to the 
Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada (Ontario Division). The 
operating expenses have been $774.69 for audit, postage and 
stationery. 

The Board of Directors is most grateful to the Grand 
Master and the members of The Foundation, especially the 
D.D.G.M.s, for excellent public relations on behalf of The 
Foundation. Although we are receiving financial support from 
ever increasing numbers of lodges, associations and brethren, we 
have been utterly amazed that this worthy charitable arm of the 
Masons of Ontario is still so little known and appreciated by our 
brethren. There is a well-known slogan "Tell it well and it will 
sell". Your Directors have been endeavouring to do just that and 
we plead for more of the members of The Foundation to assist us. 

A total of $16,871.65 in contributions was received from 90 
lodges. 22 associations and 200 members in addition to 2 bequests. 
Your Directors are appreciative of the 5, 10 and 25 dollar dona- 
'tions as of the larger amounts such as: 

$1,700.00 the lodges of Waterloo District 
1,000.00 the Wilbert G. Welby Estate 
1,000.00 the Albert D. Hahnau Estate 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 135 

500.00 Bedford Lodge No. 638 on 50th Anniversary 
500.00 Caledonia Lodge No. 637 on 50th Anniversary 
600.00 Miller Paving Employees in memory of 

Albert Crone 
680.00 London P.M.s' Association 
600.00 Hamilton Scottish Rite Bodies 
250.00 Zetland Lodge No. 326 for the 7th consecutive 

year 
350.00 W.M.s of Toronto 
270.00 lodges of Ottawa 1 District 

Bursaries were awarded to 32 students in 16 colleges and 
universities. James J. Talman of the Board of Directors again 
assumed the task of adjudicating the several requests for assist- 
ance which had been recommended by the guidance counsellors 
of the colleges. We are very appreciative of the cooperation of 
those D.D.G.M.s who personally presented the awards to the 
students. Responses from the awards officers, students and the 
D.D.G.M.s, attest that our emergency financial aid has been 
ministering to an urgent need. Apart from a donation to the 
Multiple Sclerosis Society for research in the amount of $200.00, 
we provided much needed equipment for a young lady who is 
physically handicapped from multiple sclerosis. No doubt you 
will be interested in learning that $1,000.00 was forwarded to 
the Cobalt Fire Victims Fund. 

May I, on your behalf, extend grateful appreciation to our 
Secretary-Treasurer, T. John Arthur, who has processed the over 
400 contributions, mailed double that number of acknowledg- 
ments, responded to requests for memorial folders, fulfilled many 
speaking engagements on behalf of The Foundation and main- 
tained all records to the entire satisfaction of our auditors. 

Finally your Board gives due notice that plans are being 
laid to launch an every member canvas in 1978-79. We have set 
a goal of $500,000.00 in Capital Funds for the Foundation by 
1980 when Grand Lodge will mark the 125th anniversary. With 
added income from such funding we propose to assist in meeting 
the urgent need for equipment for physically handicapped children. 

Since the close of our fiscal year The Foundation has re- 
ceived a bequest of nearly $25,000.00 from the estate of the late 
V.W. Bro. Harry Palmer of Oshawa. 

Respectfully submitted, 

A. C. ASHFORTH J. J. TALMAN

136 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE 
ON LODGE BUILDINGS 

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

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

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Twenty years ago, in July, 1957, shortly after our late 
esteemed M. W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn was elected Grand Master, 
this Advisory Committee was established with the late R.W. Bro. 
Geo. T. Evans being appointed as its first chairman. In the 
interim, inquiries have been received by the Grand Secretary 
from 259 Lodges and'or Temple Corporations. In the last 12 
months, not only were there another 13 inquiries, which is the 
average for the twenty year period, but, also, there were 6 new 
Temples occupied and dedicated. In addition, your Committee 
has had the pleasure of helping four delegations who came to 
the Grand Lodge offices in Hamilton. Each delegation had its 
own particular problem and each was most appreciative of the 
help it received. 

Because the design of most of the drawings, submitted to 
this Committee for approval, do not conform with Grand 
Lodge Regulations, it was the opinion of the Committee that, 
in order to assist those who prepare drawings for submission to 
the Advisory Committee, the following information will serve 
a useful purpose. 

The following Regulations, which must be followed, are. 
for all intents and purposes, those which were adopted twenty 
years ago by Grand Lodge at the Annual Communication in 
July, 1957. 

( 1 ) No property shall be acquired for the purpose of 
erecting a Temple until the plot plan of the same has 
been submitted to and approved by the Advisory Com- 
mittee. 

(2) No new building shall be erected until drawings have 
been approved by the Advisory Committee. 

(3) No building shall be purchased for use as a Masonic 
Temple until the drawings of such building have been 



TORO>a'0, ONTARIO, 1977 137 

submitted to the Advisory Committee to enable it to 
determine if such building can be altered to comply 
with the regulations. 

(4) No lodge or group of members shall enter into an 
agreement to rent or lease any building or part of a 
building until the drawings of such building have been 
approved by the Advisory Committee. 

(5) No lodge shall have alterations which contain struct- 
ural changes and/or additions made to any existing 
building until drawings for such work have been ap- 
proved by the Advisory Committee. 

(6) All drawings must be drawn to a scale of Va" or Va" to 
the foot and submitted, IN DUPLICATE, to the Grand 
Secretary for examination and approval by the Ad- 
visory Committee before any work is commenced. 

(7) All contact with the Advisory Committee on Lodge 
Buildings shall be made only through the Grand Secre- 
tary. 

(8) A lodge cannot occupy or use new or remodelled or 
extended premises before dedication of same without the 
permission of the Grand Master. 

(9) The procedure to be followed by the Lodge, group of 
members, or Temple Corporation, as the case may be, 
is to advise the District Deputy Grand Master when the 
premises are ready for occupancy. The District Deputy 
Grand Master, on completion, will then inspect the 
premises to see that the work conforms with the ap- 
proved drawings and correspondence. To assist him, 
he will receive a copy of Form L.B.I, together with a 
Questionnaire which he will have to fill out for the 
Advisory Committee to check, before the Committee 
can recommend, through the Grand Secretary, to the 
Grand Master that he permit occupancy pending dedi- 
cation. 

(10) Lodges shall not give notice of meeting in the new 
premises unless and until the Grand Master's permis- 
sion to do so has been obtained. This usually requires 
not less than three weeks. Lodges shall govern them- 
selves accordingly. 

The building committee of the Lodge, group of members, 
or Temple Corporation, as the case may be, should warn those' 
whether they be members of the Craft or not, who prepare 
drawings for submission to the Advisory Committee, that it is 



138 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

very important to follow the requirements of Grand Lodge 
contained in, 

(1) Grand Lodge Bulletins, Forms L.B.I and L.B.2 

(2) Fire Regulations No. L 

(3) The National Building Code of Canada (1975) and/or 

(4) Chapter 2, entitled "Common Requirements" of the 1971 
Ontario Building Fire Safety Design Standard, and/or 

(5) The Ontario New Building Code, 
always keeping in mind that 

(a) The National Building Code is essentially a set of min- 
imum regulations respecting safety of buildings with 
reference to public health, fire protection and struct- 
ural sufficiency/ and 

(b) Where variations occur, THE HIGHEST STANDARD 
SHALL ALWAYS GOVERN. Much time, effort ana 
money will be saved in the preparation and time b> 
your Committee and the Lodges in the fruition of their 
project. 

As in the past, the Advisory Committee has been pleased to 
help each of the several Lodges, groups and Temple Corpor- 
ations, which sought assistance but let me assure our Brethren 
that, at no time, does the Advisory Committee derive pleasure 
when it has to inform a Lodge that it cannot approve the 
project as presented. What really distresses the Committee is to 
learn that a project has been undertaken without the knowledge 
of this Committee who, in turn, must inform the Lodge that the 
work must stop until the project does receive the Committee's 
approval. At times, the Advisory Committee has been pleased to 
assist with advice far beyond its responsibilities. 

As Chairman of this Committee I realize how fortunate 
not only I have been, but also Grand Lodge is, in having two 
such dedicated Masons as the other two members of this Com- 
mittee. I refer, of course, to the Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. J. 
A. Irvine, and M.W. Bro. Ewart G. Dixon, Grand Secretary 
Emeritus. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

E. C. HORWOOD, 

Chairman. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 139 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
AUDIT AND FINANCE 

Presented by V.W. Bro. J. W. Millar, Chairman, on

Bro. Millar, 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: 

This Committee has now reviewed and considered in detail 
the reports of the Grand Treasurer, the Auditor's report attached 
thereto, and the report of the Grand Secretary as referred to 
it by this Annual Communication. These appear to fully and 
accurately record the essential details pertaining to — 

(a) the financial position of this Grand Lodge as of April 
30, 1977, and the results of its fiscal operations on a cash basis 
for the twelve-month period ended on that date. 

(b) details of all Receipts and Disbursements in respect to 
the General Fund, The Commutation Fund, the Memorial Fund, 
and the Semi-Centennial Fund; together with particulars of all 
transactions and changes in Capital Accounts of Grand Lodge, 
which have occurred during the said period. 

(c) the Investment Accounts of the above mentioned Funds 
and the summary of all financial resources as of April 30, 1977. 

The following observations respecting certain matters covered 
by these reports, and or, relative to its financial affairs, are 
presented for your consideration. 

( 1 ) The Audited Statements of Grand Lodge accounts show 
that the net balance of all its resources now amounts to 
$1,942,156.67. This net balance includes total investments at 
cost value (not market value), plus cash on hand and in the 
bank and represents an increase in assets of $31,775.25 over 
figures of a year ago. 

(2) Following traditional policy, Grand Lodge Funds are 
invested in Trustee Securities with the exception of $170,000.00 
Series "A" and $40,000.00 Series "B" debentures of Masonic 
Holdings which are payable on demand after June 1, 1978. These 
were acquired under specific authority of this Grand Lodge in 
1959. So far $182,000.00 of these debentures have been re- 
deemed, including $10,000.00 redeemed on April 30th, 1977. 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

All securities, with few exceptions, are fully registered as 
to capital interest, and are currently held in the custody of the 
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Hamilton, Ontario, 
whose certificate of confirmation is referred to in the Auditor's 
Report. 

(3) Total receipts under the General Fund for fees, dues, 
commutations, interest on investments, etc. amounted to 
$304,687.95 while disbursements totalled $305,992.81 leaving a 
current deficit of $1,304.86. 

(4) Grants for benevolent purposes, less those refunded 
and cancelled amounted to $60,128.70 an increase of $3,858.04 
from a year ago. These grants were paid out of the combined 
incomes of the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds, as supple- 
mented by transfers from the General Fund, which last year 
amounted to $21,500.00. The anticipated amount for the coming 
year is the same. The Committee on Audit and Finance there- 
fore recommends that in order to provide these funds, the 
Board of General Purposes authorize in accordance with Section 
119 of the Constitution, appropriation from the General Fund 
up to the amount of $21,500.00. Such funds to be transferred 
as and when required to the combined Memorial and Semi- 
Centennial Funds, in order to supplement the interest and income 
therefrom, thus making adequate provision for all benevolent 
grants which Grand Lodge may make during the period May 1, 
1977 to April 30, 1978. It should be noted that the Committee on 
Benevolence has shown great care in administering its funds. 

Your committee recommends approval of the special dona- 
tions to charitable institutions totalling $4,400.00 which were 
made under the authority of the Grand Master as itemized in 
the Financial Statement. 

In its review of all matters covered by this report, your 
Committee has received the fullest cooperation and assistance 
from the Grand Secretary and his staff. The cooperation of the 
Grand Treasurer is also appreciated. Your Committee now 
formally recommends to this Grand Lodge the adoption, without 
amendment, the reports of the above mentioned officers and 
approval of the recommendations contained in the report of 
this Committee. 

In accordance with Section 101 of the Constitution, your 
Committee submits for consideration and approval, an estimate 
of Receipts and Expenditures as it relates to the General Fund 
for the year ending April 30, 1978.

REPORT OF THE GRAND CHAPLAIN 

The Grand Chaplain, R.W. Bro. Rev. G. C. Coster 
Scovil presented his report. On motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Scovil, it was re- 
ceived and adopted. 

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: 

For the honour and privilege of being appointed Grai. . 
Chaplain and the wonderful Masonic Experience of this past 
year, thank you. Most Worshipful Grand Master. For your in- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 143 

spiration, commencing with your Address at the last Annual 
Communication when, in your conclusion, you emphasized the 
Ancient Landmarks of Masonry and appended to your Address Ap- 
pendix "'B" "Aims and Relationships of the Craft" from the Grand 
Lodge of England, and continuing with your various addresses, 
which I heard throughout the year — thank you. Fortunate were the 
Brethren v/ho heard your talks on "Discipline", "Qualities of the 
Worshipful Master", "Progress" in the world and in Masonry and 
your historical address on the Grand Masters from your home 
area of Hamilton. I will never forget your story of the hen 
and the pig discussing total commitment. Actually your total 
commitment to Masonry and your friendship are wonderfully 
reflected in Grand Lodge Officers and in various lodges visited. 

With gratitude I remember my Brethren of my Mother 
Lodge, Aurum No. 704 in Timmins and the Brethren of Temiska- 
ming District where my Masonic Life began. I appreciate the 
Brethren of Beaver Lodge No. 83 in Strathroy who have 
graciously received me as an affiliated member and with ap- 
propriate honours presented me with the Grand Chaplain's 
Regalia, the gift of an anonymous donor. It was a joy and 
honour to be installed by Most Worshipful Brother William 
Wright, my former Metropolitan, who has encouraged me in 
Masonry. Thank you too, to the Grand Secretary and the Super- 
visor of Benevolence for their vital guidance and encouragement. 
Particularly a thank you to each of the District Chaplains and the 
District Deputy Grand Masters who have been so co-operative. 

We had forty-three District Chaplains of whom thirteen were 
laymen and thirty were ordained clergy. Our ranks included one 
newly entered into Masonry, many Past Masters and a former 
Grand Chaplain of Ontario and a Past Grand Chaplain of British 
Columbia and the Yukon. One Chaplain is seventy-five years old 
but still a man of vigour and young in heart. During the year 
one Chaplain was elected mayor of an important city and 
another became Chaplain in the Canadian Armed Forces. Reports 
indicate much hard work, with one chaplain making thirty-one 
visits to eighteen lodges — giving twenty-one Invocation Prayers 
and five Masonic Education talks. At his District Service over 
one hundred and fifty Masons were present. One Chaplain em- 
phasized the importance of "Work" well done for the sake of 
candidates concerned, and another recommended the importance 
of protocol of "reverse order of precedence" in the official visit 
of the D.D.G.M. 

Every District seems to have had its District service or 
services. Many lodges too have had public Masonic services. One 
service occurred on the Friday Sabbath evening. Services were held 
on Sundays beginning at 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Services took 
place in parks, synagogues, a Salvation Army Citadel and Churches 
of numerous denominations. With one exception, encouraging 
attendance of Masons was indicated. One Chaplain wrote "I find 



144 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the services bring the men together on a slightly different basis 
than the regular Lodge meetings and it improves the relation- 
ship as a whole." Sermons were preached on: "What sayest Thou 
of Thyself", "God and Man", "The Pillars of King Solomon's 
Temple", "The Romance of our English Volume of the Sacred 
Law — the Bible' and "Can you be a committed Jew or Christian 
and a Mason? ' 

Masonic Education opportunities were reported by the District 
Chaplains. Many of them expressed their appreciation that the 
District Deputy Grand Masters gave them opportunities to speak 
to the brethren on the official visits to the various lodges. The 
Bruce Masonic News had an article by the District Chaplain — 
"Things that money cannot buy" and The Tracing Board (Algoma 
and Western Districts) Spring Edition 1976 had an article on 
"Freemasonry and Religion" and another on "Charity". Several 
Chaplains spoke at Masonic Education evenings. 

The opportunities of sharing in Masonic Ceremonial were 
some of the highlights of the year for me. The beauty of the 
words and the dignity of the ceremony underlined the richness 
of Masonic work. On the one hand there was the wonderful 
fulfilment of dreams in the dedication of new temples and 
the constituting and consecrating of new lodges. I was im- 
pressed by the tremendous effort and self-sacrifice of so many 
Masons which lay behind these occasions. It also gave one good 
opportunity to observe the excellency of both our Grand Master 
and Deputy Grand Master in their conducting of these cere- 
monies. On the other hand, it was a joy to share in the present- 
ation and dedication of Centennial regalia when we remembered 
the rich heritage of the past hundred years and looked forward 
hopefully into the second Century. Basic to this is, of course, 
the annual Installation ceremonies, the Work of degrees and the 
opening and closing of Lodges. I am sure that years of Masonry 
will not reveal all the richness of our ceremonial. 

Worship was naturally a part of the Grand Chaplain's ex- 
perience. I preached at two District services, although I prefer 
District Chaplains to do this, and had the privilege of preaching 
at the Annual Memorial Service for our First Grand Master at 
St. John's Church, Woodhouse. A highlight of the year for me 
was sharing in the Annual Masonic Divine Service of the Seven 
Toronto Districts at Beth Sholom Synagogue. The overflowing 
response of the brethren astounded all concerned. We were in- 
spired by the beautiful music of the Cantor and Choir. We will 
not soon forget the sermon by Rabbi Harold Lerner based on 
Jacob's Ladder. I hope that in future years there will be one 
or more rabbis among the District Chaplains and that the time 
will come that a Rabbi will be our Grand Chaplain. Another 
happy event was being invited to preach at the Annual Christmas 
Observance Service of Richard Coeur de Lion Preceptory No. 4, 
Knights Templar in London. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1977 145 

Masonic. Education was a part of the Grand Chaplain's year. 
In this year I have learned a lot about the tremendous work of 
Grand Lodge through attendance at the meetings of the Board 
of General Purposes. To listen to the reports of Blood Donors, 
Masonic Foundation with its aid to deserving students and 
research work and Benevolence was an inspiration — such bles- 
sings to others in our commimities. In an age of moral chaos, 
it is good to find moral standards upheld with justice and mercy 
in The Grievances and Appeals Committee. How excellent is 
our newest publication, "Meeting the Challenge" to aid all 
regular officers in carrying out their responsibilities with dignity 
and fitness! Surely one of the great privileges of this past year 
was to hear the Very Worshipful H. Carr deliver his superb 
lecture on "Six Hundred Years of Masonry." 

Fellowship was another richness for the Grand Chaplain. 
It began with Grand Lodge Night at Centennial Lodge No. 684 
in London when I wore the Grand Chaplain's regalia for the 
first time. Grand Lodge Officers past and present put on a degree 
and then there was a banquet. Then there were the banquets con- 
nected with the Dedications, Consecrations, special District 
visits of the Grand Master and Centennial visits. Inevitable was 
the piper who piped us in, the well cooked meals provided by 
members of various organizations or wives of the local brethren 
and the inspiring addresses of either our Grand Master or Deputy 
Grand Master. Each time there was opportunity to get to know 
one or two brethren and to meet old aquaintances. For Brotherly 
love, thank you Brethren. 

With deep regret I had to turn down almost thirty kind 
invitations. These invitations were appreciated and thank you 
for them. Parochial duties and this past year some academic 
commitments made it impossible to attend many events. The 
gracious understanding of the Grand Master and others helped 
immensely. 

This past year I have indeed witnessed the workings of the 
Most High in The Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario. May He continue to bless our Masonic 
endeavours in the years ahead and may each one of us regularly 
remember in our prayers our Grand Master, Grand Lodge, our 
District Officers and the officers and members of our own Lodges 
as well as our Masonic Brethren in fellowship with us throughout 
the world. 



Respectfully submitted, 



C. COSTER SCOVIL, 

Grand Chaplain.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FRATERNAL 
CORRESPONDENCE 



FOREWORD 

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: 

The Report of the Committee on Fraternal Correspondence 
is a foreword to the reviews which follow. These reviews give 
an analysis and summary of the activities of the Grand Lodges 
throughout the world with whom we are in amity. We are in- 
debted to R.W. Bro. J. J. Talman for his fine work in compiling 
the reviews since 1961. It is a mammoth task and R.W. Bro. 
Talman has accomplished that task so well. 

For the past several years, the Lodges in our Jurisdiction 
have been deeply concerned with the rise in assessment and taxes 
on Masonically owned buildings. The Grand Master of Florida 
laid down regulations for Lodges there to follow, if they were 
to conform to the laws of the state regarding taxation of real 
property. We are not alone in the taxation problem. 

Following Canada's Centennial celebrations in 1967, Can- 
adians became more aware of the need for preserving and mark- 
ing historical sites. The reviews of Indiana, Kansas, Manitoba, 
Massachusetts, Tennessee, District of Columbia, New Hamp- 
shire, California and Ohio, describe the restoration and marking 
of suitable historical areas in a most interesting manner. 

Statistics are usually somewhat monotonous and dull in 
nature. However, the second paragraph in the review of Kentucky 
contains an item that cannot be described in this way. I quote: 
"The Grand Lodge lost M.W. Bro. O. R. Ware (1913-14). At 
the time of his death he was the Senior Past Grand Master in 
the United States. Sixty years a Past Grand Master is an ex- 
tremely rare honour. He was 92 when he died." 

The review of New Zealand contains two items which should 
interest most Masons in this Jurisdiction: 1. A short history of 
the Grand Lodge of Finland. 2. Ways of extending the useful life 
of the Volume of the Sacred Law in the Lodge. 

The Grand Lodge of Ireland celebrated its 250th Anni- 
versary in June, 1975. The review of Ireland discusses this happy 
occasion at some length but the last paragraph includes, by 



contrast, a short reference to the death by other than natural 
causes of a number of its members. Despite the troubles which 
prevail, enthusiasm and support of the Order are very much in 
evidence on all sides. 

The review of England should be read by all. It includes a 
note on the rising costs of maintaining beautiful Freemason's 
Hall, the increasing number of candidates and of new Lodges, 
and a short account of events surrounding the Dedication of the 
first Freemason's Hall, 23 May, 1776. The last item should 
be a treasure for our history students. 

We sometimes hear mild criticism that our Lodges are not 
participating in the life of the community. The review of 
Tasmania offers a fairly adequate answer to this criticism. Read 
also Scotland. 

In Canada we have some concern about bilingualism. In 
Israel they have individual lodges which do their work in one of 
seven different languages. It is interesting, too, that there is 
only one Masonic Temple in each city and all Lodges meet in the 
one Temple. 

This foreword has indicated some of the outstanding events 
and concerns mentioned in the reviews. You are invited to read 
them all because they are informative and well worth the time 
spent in doing so. 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 



BRUCE B. FOSTER, 

Chairman. 



Fraternal Correspondence and Reviews 



ALBERTA — 1976 

7 1st Annual Communication — June 11-12. 

Grand Master, 1975-76 — M.W. Bro. W. A. Milligan 
Grand Master, 1976-77 — M.W. Bro. A. O. Aspeslet 

Lodges, 171. Membership, 16,145. Loss, 276. 

The Grand Secretary's Report listed amendments to lodge 
by-laws which the Grand Master had approved during the year. 
Of the 54 noted, 39 increased dues. The average dues in the 
Jurisdiction run from $8.00 (one lodge) to $50.00 (one lodge). 
The average is $19.67 with 36 at $15.00 and 45 at $20.00. 

The Grand Lodge investigated the feasibility of obtaining 
suitable quarters for a Masonic Temple in the facsimile of Fort 
Edmonton being built as a historic park. The Committee selected a 
building which will be a duplicate of the Masonic Hall built first 
in 1903 and situated on 102 Street half a block South of Jasper 
Avenue. Since the original Fort Edmonton has been completely 
built over, the new construction is on new ground. Lodges met in 
the original 1903 temple until 1931. The reconstruction of the 
first temple did not lend itself for Masonic purposes. The project, 
if proceeded with, will necessitate the raising of not less than 
$12,500 and probably more. 

The Grand Master, in his address, gave his opinion that lodges 
could do more than they are doing in the area of benevolence and 
suggested that the W.M. of each lodge should appoint a Com- 
mittee to study the matter as he said, "Our society still has a 
need for our aid in the way of benevolence but it is our responsi- 
bility to locate this need and the form it should take." 

The Grand Master also made an interesting observation re- 
garding changes he has noticed in the place of Freemasomy in 
the community: 

"I have observed, as I travel around the province, that our 
membership is becoming much more outward looking than it has 
over the years. I find that lodges, through their membership, 
are becoming better known in their respective communities and 
appear to feel more freer to discuss what we stand for with non- 
masons. I believe this to be a healthy attitude which should be 
encouraged as society today requires answers before becoming 



4 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

involved in any function or organization. This change is having 
a good effect in that we are initiating many more younger men into 
the Craft. This reduction in age is a very necessary thing if we are 
to remain an organization with a future. Such things as the Banff 
Spring Workshop, guidance and instruction from District Deputies, 
interlodge visitations and other such activities has had an excellent 
effect within our lodges and is bringing us out into the open for 
all to see." 



ARIZONA — 1976 

94th Annual Communication — May 17-18. 

Grand Master, 1975-76 — M.W. Bro. M. E. Anderson 
Grand Master, 1976-77 — M.W. Bro. T. P. Nelson 

Lodges, 70 Membership, 15,705. Gain, 156. 

Only two Lodges were not represented at the Annual Com- 
munication. 

Bagdad Lodge No. 54 offered a resolution that Grand Lodge 
annually designate one member lodge as a "recipient lodge" 
and as such "through the encouragement and good offices of 
the Grand Lodge be the recipient of voluntary gifts of time, talent 
and financial resources from the constituent lodges" and indiv- 
iduals, the aim of the project being to improve the lodge halls 
in the Jurisdiction. The proposers outlined carefully the method of 
implementation. The resolution was received and referred to 
the General Policy and Jurisprudence Committees. 

The Grand Lodge has an active Building Survey Com- 
mittee which during the year passed on proposals by three lodges 
to acquire, add to or alter lodge premises. In one case a lodge 
had acquired an unused church building. 

The Masonic Home Study Committee agreed that the erection 
and maintenance of a Masonic Home is not warranted at this time. 



ARKANSAS — 1976 

135th Annual Communication — November 16-17. 

Grand Master, 1975-76 — M.W. Bro. D. C. Carmack 
Grand Master, 1976-77 — M.W. Bro. Otis Dyer 

Lodges, 366. Membership, 49,130. Loss, 119. 

The Grand Secretary covered many topics of interest in his 
Report. One comment, applicable in all jurisdictions, dealt with the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 5 

need for adequate fire and extended coverage insurance "and in 
proper form today (no fine print so to speak that you do not 
understand)." Arkansas loses "at least one Lodge per year, usually 
more." He also stressed the need to preserve valuable records in 
a safe place. A second subject which applied specifically to the 
Grand Lodge of Arkansas was headed: "Open Air Meetings. 
Conferral of the Master's Degree under the whole canopy of 
heaven." Since the descriptions give details not often provided, in 
Proceedings, they are given here in full. 

"In Arkansas we presently have two open air meetings: The 
Gravel Pit Degree at Harrisburg, and the Rock Quarry Degree 
at Conway. 

"The Gravel Pit Degree is in its 27th year and is held the 
last Saturday in July and the Rock Quarry Degree is relative new 
being in their 4th year and is held around the middle of Sept- 
ember. 

"As far as the setting is concerned, they are distinctly different. 
The Gravel Pit has seating capacity of around 750 (bleacher type) 
on all four sides of the rectangle comparable to a Lodge Hall 
with standard Altar and Stations from the Lodge Hall. Night lights 
and/or flood lights provide the lighting. The Gravel Pit Degree is 
located in the City of Harrisburg behind the DX Service Station 
east on Highway 14. 

"The Rock Quarry gets it name from the quarry on the east 
bank of the Arkansas River near the New Toad Suck Ferry 
bridge southwest of Conway on Highway 60. It is carved out of 
the mountain and huge boulders are used for the Stations. The 
seating arrangement at present is folding chairs until some other 
type of seating can be provided. The uniqueness of this location is 
that lighted torches are placed along the edge of the cliff so that 
no one will slip and fall into the River. Torches are also placed in 
the crevasses of the rocks in the mountain to give the place an 
atmosphere of the older day of degrees being conferred on 
high hills and in low vales so that they could be properly tyled. Of 
course 'both' are properly tiled according to Law as stated in the 
Special Dispensation which must be requested in writing to the 
Grand Master each year and with his approval. This Dispensation 
is read before the degree is conferred. You will note also that the 
Charter of the Lodge requesting the Special Dispensation is 
always displayed in front of the Master's Station." 



BRITISH COLUMBIA — 1976

Harbour Lodge U.D. at Pender Harbour received a warrant 
and two new lodges were instituted: Moxint Begbie Lodge U.D. of 
100 Mile House and Blue Mountain Lodge U.D. at Port Coquitlam. 

The Jurisdiction is divided into 26 Districts with a D.D.G.M. 
in each. Consequently, each D.D.G.M. is responsible for about 
six or seven lodges. Victoria District No. 21 has nine, one of which 
is Victoria Lodge of Education and Research. Not only did the 
D.D.G.M. make his official visit but he installed the W.M. 
and Officers in each lodge. The D.D.G.M. of Comox-Alberni 
District No. 22, in addition to his official visits, "surprise 
visited" every lodge in the District, some of them several times. 
He found the work well done. Another D.D.G.M. of Okanagan- 
Revelstoke District No. 9 requested each lodge Secretary to 
schedule no degree work on the night of the official visit. Instead, 
the D.D.G.M. returned to each lodge at least twice. It looks as 
though the District Deputy Grand Masters take their responsibilities 
seriously. 

The Committee on the Grand Lodge Bursary Fund told of a 
successful year. TTie Capital Fund now stands at $209,134.00. 

The amount available in August, 1975, was $21,500.00. This 
was apportioned into 65 Bursaries and 8 Educational Grants. The 
average award was $300.00. As in former years, every effort was 
made to ensure that awards were made to those applicants who 
had the greatest need for them and each successful candidate was 
required to have the necessary academic qualifications to enter 
the post-secondary course he proposed to follow. 

Since its inception in 1961, the Bursary Fund has made awards 
to applicants, the total sum awarded being $209,196.00. 

Bursaries are awarded to students wishing to attend one of

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 7 

This is our first Review for California since 1974. The 1973 
report showed that the age of the Brethren was causing concern. 
Now, the Grand Master is encouraged as large numbers of young 
men are joining the Fraternity and are taking part in its activities. 
Attendance at meetings also has improved "in many instances 
where the ladies have been included in dinners prior to meetings 
and provided entertainment while the members are at labour." 

The Grand Lodge laid more than 20 cornerstones. One in 
particular appealed to the Grand Master as a new high in pro- 
moting universal brotherhood. It was the laying of the corner- 
stone of the Christian Brothers High School in Sacramento. This 
school, which stresses training youth from relatively poor homes 
for careers in trade following graduation, is supported by the 
public at large and is highly regarded. The Grand Master believed 
that the ceremony did much for the image of Masonry. 

For the first time in five years a new Lodge, Fountain Valley 
Bicentennial Lodge U.D. was instituted. The membership is young 
and enthusiastic. 

A second Lodge, Daylight Bicentennial Lodge U.D. also was 
instituted. This Lodge in Sacramento will fill a great need in that 
area, enabling night workers and others to attend in the daytime. 

One unusual event was the dedication of the rebuilding of 
Quitman Lodge No. 88 in the Malakoff Diggings State Historic 
Park on August 23. 1976. A bronze plaque is to be placed on the 
building so that all who visit this State Park will know that 
Masonry had an important part of "winning the West." On this 
project the Grand Master was faced with an emergent decision. 
Masons had the choice early in the year to participate in rebuild- 
ing the interior part of the second floor of the building which is 
to house Quitman Lodge or to lose forever the opportunity to 
have the Lodge included in the structure as it was during its hey 
day. Five thousand dollars were needed for materials. Relying on 
a provision in the California Code, the Grand Master authorized 
the amount. Grand Lodge supported his action. 

The Grand Master recommended that the Grand Lodge 
sponsor a pilot travel tour for Masons, their families and friends. 
The Committee on Policy and General Purposes recommended 
against adoption as in their opinion the Grand Lodge should not 
be connected with any commercial activity. Grand Lodge sup- 
ported the Committee.

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Lin was born in and spent 
his childhood days in Taiwan during the Japanese occupation and 
so learned Japanese. When eleven he went to the Diocesan School 
in Hong Kong, where he learned English and Cantonese. On his 
return to Taiwan he had to learn Mandarin and the local 
Taiwanese dialect. He should have little trouble in communicating 
with any Masons he may meet. 

M.W. Bro. Lin reported that the Grand Master's Ball "was 
a huge success from the point of view of excellent attendance." 

Cost of the dinner tickets are kept to a minimum so that 
all Masons and their families could attend. "It was the one op- 
portunity during the year when all Masons on the Island got 
together for grand fellowship, spread good will and fraternal 
love amongst the brethren." Approximately 375 Masons, their 
ladies and friends attended.

Thanks to a donation of panelling and lighting fixtures given 
by the Company of the Grand Master, the offices of the Grand 
Lodge in Taipei were renovated and made much more attractive. 

The Grand Master's Bali was a great success. Furthermore 
"the affair turned out very attractive for the coffers (nearly NT 
$100,000) of the Grand Lodge and to its charity fund." 

Under the heading "Return of Wayward Masons" an expres- 
sion not often encountered but expressive, the Grand Master told 
of his activity in trying to solve this problem. 

"An effort was made this year to get Masons who had for 
some reason or another dropped their membership in Masonry 
back into the fraternity. I established an unwritten rule that by 
paying the one year's current dues and two year's back dues any 
member could be reinstated regardless of how many years he 
was in arrears and with no questions asked as to why he was 
delinquent. This formula seemed to work quite satisfactorily and 
we gained back into our fraternity many members who had been 
absent from us for many years. It is hoped that this effort 
will be continued as there are many brothers who are interested in 
returning to the fraternity."

In addition to many fraternal visitations both in and outside 
his Jurisdiction, the Grand Master accomplished his goal of 
visiting in all 133 of the constituent lodges. Many were memorable 
and special occasions such as the 150th anniversaries of three 
lodges and one 100th. The Grand Master also accompanied Sequin 
Lodge No. 140 on their fraternal visit to Prince of Wales Lodge 
No. 63, Sherbrooke, Quebec. 

The Committee on Brotherhood planned and took part in 
many programmes throughout the State. This group, as indi- 
viduals rather than a committee works with the state heads of 
the fraternal groups: Knights of Columbus, B'nai B'rith, and 
Prince Hall Masons. They held several meetings to discuss common 
problems. One of the highlights of the year was the 10th Anni- 
versary Dance held at the Knights of Columbus Hall, Southington. 
The state heads of all four groups attended. 

The Custodians of the Work developed a revised ritual for 
the conduct of the Table Lodge. This revision was an attempt to 
further enrich the ceremony of the Table Lodge by introducing 
more of the customs and practices of the Masonic Feasts of 
early times. They hoped thereby to augment and improve the 
traditional friendly and joyous atmosphere of the occasion. 
Latitude in the conduct of the ceremony was provided, to give 
adaptability to the requirements and wishes of individual Lodges 
acting as sponsors.

The Grand Lodge held a Special Communication in the 
hall of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. Such a 
gathering, outside the boundaries of the jurisdiction concerned, 
has not been encountered before. The occasion was to celebrate 



10 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the 170 years of the Grand Lodge of Delaware, formed on June 
6, 1806. Following the recognition of American independence in 
1783, the colonies, now states, which had not yet formed a Grand 
Lodge independent of the Grand Lodge of England soon did so. 
On September 25, 1786, 12 lodges of the Provincial Grand Lodge 
of Pennsylvania, including all the five lodges in Delaware, con- 
vened and closed forever the Provincial Grand Lodge of Pennsyl- 
vania. The following day, the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania was 
instituted. The five lodges in Delaware surrendered their warrants 
and received new ones from the newly constituted Grand Lodge. 
This early history more than justified the Special Communication 
held in Philadelphia.

reported that the Committee had cooperated with the Grand Lect- 
urer in conducting a school of instruction on the first and third 
Saturday nights of each month for the benefit of the officers 
and members of the constituent lodges. Attendance and interest 
were high and the results are showing up in the lodges. 

The Grand Lodge laid the cornerstone of the Adas Israel 
Synagogue. The Original Adas Israel Synagogue was dedicated in 
1876 but was moved to a new site where the cornerstone was laid. 
The synagogue is listed in the Register of Historic places as an 
officially designated landmark of the District of Columbia and 
maintained by the Jewish Historical Society of the District. 

Lsst year's Review reported the Masonic Home had vac- 
ancies in both the open home and in the infirmary, rather than the 
customary waiting list. The situation continued, with a slight im- 
provement.

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 11 

The Board of General Purposes was "seriously exercised" by 
the unavoidable costs of maintaining Freemason's Hall. During 
the year new boilers were installed at a cost of £84,579 to replace 
the old ones which had been in use since the building was com- 
pleted in 1933. Freemason's Hall was designed '"on a lavish 
scale at a time when rates, heating and lighting were comparatively 
minor factors." The Board is also considering the possibility of 
letting the Grand Temple for wider purposes such as concerts 
for which its organ and other facilities are well suited. The Board 
added: "this is a novel step, and one which might well have caused 
offence in earlier generations which were not faced with inflation 
at its present rate." 

The President of the Board of General Purposes at the March 
Quarterly Communication in reporting on the usual Annual 
Returns of Lodges on the Grand Lodge Register and of Grand 
Lodge Certificates issued in 1975 added: "It is gratifying to see 
that the number of Grand Lodge Certificates issued shows a mark- 
ed recovery when compared with the figures for recent years, 
and this in spite of the gloomy fears sometimes expressed that 
Masonry is in decline." 

The totals given for Certificates issued at Freemasons' Hall 
and those issued by District Grand Masters since 1966 have been 
something under 19,186 (in 1966). Of recent years, however, the 
figure has been under 18,000 (17,313) in 1974. In 1975, however, 
it reached 18,309. In the period 1966-1975 the Lodges on the 
Grand Register increased from 7,286 to 7,804. 

The M.W. Grand Master commented on the gratifying 
figures at the Annual Investiture: 

"The President also mentioned in March that for the first time 
in some years 1975 had shown an increase in the number of Grand 
Lodge Certificates issued: at a time when the membership figures 
of almost all Grand Lodges are going down this is most heartening 
news. I have little doubt that our policy of more and smaller 
Lodges has helped to bring this about: seventy new Lodges in 
1973, sixty-eight in 1974 and sixty-three in 1975 have given op- 
portunities to more young Masons to gain experience and to en- 
courage the entry into the Craft of their contemporaries."' 

At the same gathering he added his views regarding certain 
restrictions on the office Pro Grand Master: "It has seemed 
illogical to me ever since I became Grand Master, and the office 
of Pro Grand Master was revived after twenty-five years' disuse, 
that with it alone of all Grand Ranks there should be a bar of 
a non-Masonic nature to the Grand Master's freedom of choice, 
namely that the Pro Grand Master is required to be a Peer of the 
Realm: I need hardly say that removal of this clause by Grand 
Lodge would not entail the removal of the Pro Grand Master by 
me and his replacement by a commoner, but I think it is an 



12 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

irritating and outmoded limitation which might present serious 
difficulties in the future." 

The Board of Benevolence granted £1,000 each to the Grand 
Lodge of Guatemala and the Grand Orient of Italy "to meet the 
Masonic needs" occasioned by the major earthquakes in the two 
countries. The Board acted immediately, owing to the urgency 
of the two crises, and sought approval of its action from the Grand 
Lodge which, of course, it received. 

The Grand Lodge celebrated the bicentennial of the Dedica- 
tion of the First Freemasons' Hall, 23 May, 1776, which stood 
on the site of the present Freemasons' Hall. At the June Quarterly 
Communication, W. Bro. T. O. Haunch, P.A.G. Supt. Wks.. gave 
a "well-informed and witty address" describing the events of 
200 years before. Unfortunately it is too long to be reprinted 
here in full. A few lines, however, must be included to record 
this occasion, most significant in the history of world Free- 
masonry. 

"On the morning of Thursday the twenty-third of May. 1776. 
this part of London must have presented a very animated sight 
indeed as carriages bearing brethren and their ladies converged 
upon Great Queen Street. To the rear of the house at No. 61, which 
itself was already let in part as Freemasons' Tavern, stood the 
newly completed Hall built 'for the use of the Society' and to be 
dedicated that day by the Grand Master, Lord Petre, he having 
laid the Foundation Stone a year previously. Robert Edward. 9th 
Lord Petre, had become Grand Master in 1772 and at once he 
actively interested himself in the project for building a Hall. It 
is. I think, noteworthy to record that the realisation of this 
ambition, an event whose Bicentenary we are celebrating this 
year, and one which was such a milestone in the history of Grand 
Lodge, should have owed so much to the interest, and the personal 
participation and financial support of Lord Petre. one of the few 
brethren of the Roman Catholic faith to have presided over the 
Craft as Grand Master. . . 

"The Ceremony consisted of three parts, the Dedication proper 
conducted in the presence of brethren only prefaced and followed 
hv public ceremonials at which the ladies and other non-masons 
were present . . . The first part of the open or public proceedings 
started with the anthem composed for the laying of the foundation 
stone the year before, and set to the tune of Rule Britannia, and 
after this the Grand Secretary, James Hesehine. delivered an 
exordium on Masonry which is reported to have been 'not less 
instructive than elegant' . . . More music followed during which 
the ladies and the non-masons amongst the musicians withdrew 
from the Hall and adjourned to Freemasons' Tavern, there to 
partake of tea and coffee. The tenant Bro. Luke Reilly. had been 
allowed sixpence a head on this account for all attending the 
Dedication. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 13 

"Meanwhile back in the Hall Grand Lodge having gone 
into closed session the Grand Master ordered the Hall to be tyled 
and the lodge (i.e. the lodge board) to be uncovered. All was then 
ready for the essential business of the day to begin. So followed 
the Ceremony proper, the ritual circumambulations accompanied 
by music on the organ, punctuated at the appropriate intervals 
by the giving of grand honours, the while the Grand Master in 
solemn form performed the triple dedications of the Hall to 
Masonry, Virtue and Universal Charity and Benevolence — a 
form of ceremony followed again in its essentials for the Dedi- 
cation of this present Hall over a hundred and fifty years later. 

■'The Dedication completed, the lodge board was again 
covered and the ladies were readmitted (as the record has it) 
amidst the acclamations of the brethren'."

Only four lodges were not represented at the Annual Com-

9 cornerstones laid two were for banks and two for court houses. 

In his Executive Orders, the Grand Master laid down regu- 
lations for particular Lodges to foUow if they are to conform 
strictly to the laws of Florida regarding the Ad Valorem Taxation 
of real property. 

1. That a portion of every Stated Lodge meeting be set 
aside for a lecture, talk or discussion of some Masonic or local 
community charity or charitable endeavour and that members 
present be urged to contribute to and support such charity or 
charitable endeavour and record be made in minutes thereof. 

2. That the Lodge bulletin or trestle board, if one is pub- 
lished, should contain an announcement of the program of the 
Lodge relating to the above. 

3. That every Lodge make its facilities available at cost or 
below cost or at no cost to groups or organizations who support, 
sponsor or perform charitable services and who do not own 
facilities needed for place of meeting. This action is specifically 
recognized by Florida law as a factor to be considered in 
granting or denying tax exemption. 



14 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

4. That the Lodge Board of Relief meet frequently and 
regularly and make report thereof to the Lodge and such report 
be incorporated in the Lodge Minutes. 

5. That every Lodge contribute to some one or more com- 
munity charities or charitable endeavours as may be determined 
by the Lodge.

During January, 1976, the Grand Master and Grand Secretary 
held a "get acquainted meeting" in each of the twelve Masonic 
Districts for the purpose of getting acquainted with the Masters, 
Secretaries and other Lodge Officers and Brethren. The meetings 
were well attended and profitable. 

Georgia acted as host for the Southeastern Conference. The 
threat of Hurricane Dottie forced those in attendance to rush 
the programme and end it a day early. 

The Grand Lodge met in 12 Emergent Communications, in 
practically all cases to lay cornerstones for new lodge buildings. 

The strict rules in Georgia regarding the admission of candi- 
dates associated with any aspect of the liquor, beer or wine trade 
produced a ruling which shows how far the prohibition may 
be carried. The Grand Master reported: 

"I was requested by the Secretary of Clinton Lodge No. 54 
to rule on whether an employee who worked as an overseer of 
freight cars and trucks, and stored cases which contained beer in 
a distributing company warehouse, was disqualified because 
of the nature of his employment to petition for the Degrees of 
Masonry. I investigated this very closely and since the party 
involved could not be determined to be furnishing, manufacturing, 
selling or serving spiritous, malt or intoxicating liquors for profit, 
I ruled that if he otherwise was judged favourably on his moral 
qualifications, that he should be permitted this privilege." 

The Masonic Home ran into many difficulties during the year. 
The laundry was discontinued as the machinery had worn out. The 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 15 

farm, which provides fruit, vegetables and meat for the Home 
and also provides its own feed for livestock, being small cannot 
be run at a profit. It does, however, give an opportunity for many 
of the children in the home to become involved in the operations. 
It is hoped that certain changes in management will improve 
matters. There were 36 boys and 26 girls in the home during the 
year. 

The Grand Lodge owns 932 acres of land, administered by the 
Home board, located in various counties and used for various 
purposes such as the Home farm, camp sites, a pear orchard and 
a timber growing area.

The Grand Secretary commented on a problem which, even 
if not often discussed, is real. 

"Statistics may be of very little interest to many Masons, 
and we often tend to disregard them. However, they convey some 
very revealing conditions which need our immediate attention. 

"As an example, 285 candidates were Initiated during the 
past year and only 184 were Raised. Some will argue that this is 
merely the back-log which normally accumulates prior to the 
ending of the fiscal year. Actually, the file on 'Failures to Advance' 
continues to grow, and this condition has existed for many years. 
We have an annual average of approximately 100 candidates who 
are lost for Failure to Advance. Some of these received their first 
degree several years ago, and in some instances have not even been 
dropped from the record. 

"The application of arithmetic demonstrates that the average 
operating proficiency of our Lodges is only 65 per cent. If all 
Lodges were proficient in the Investigation of petitioners, in the 
conferring of degrees, and in the coaching of candidates, we 
should be Raising the same number as we Initiate. Instead we have 
35 per cent of our candidates who are lost for Failure to Advance. 

"The only possible conclusion is that Lodges are failing to 
direct adequate attention to the duties for which they are 
chartered."

The first distinguished visitor to be presented by the Grand 
Master was M.W. Bro. Eric W. Nancekivell. 

The Grand Master, early in his address, said that before the 
end of his second term he hoped to see the fruition of his fondest 
dream: "a Masonic Blood Bank for the entire State of Illinois." 

Although ten lodges consolidated to form five, the Grand 
Master had an honour which has not come to an Illinois Grand 
Master for many years. He received two petitions for dispens- 
ations to form new lodges. In addition, a group of Brethren 
requested a dispensation to form a Lodge of Research. The request 
was granted and lUinois Lodge of Research, Bloomington, was 
instituted. The Grand Lodge granted Charters to the new Lodges. 

The Grand Lodge met in many Occasional Communications: 
dedicated four Masonic Buildings, laid five cornerstones for new 
Lodge Temples, dedicated a Liberty Tree and a Park Fountain, in 
Decatur, as well as several flagpoles. The Grand Lodge en- 
courages the flying of flags at Masonic buildings.

Eastern Star passed in the Communication held in December 1973 
be rescinded and the matter be dropped for the present. The 
motion was carried. 

The Grand Master reported that during 1975 three new 
lodges had been consecrated. He also stressed the importance of

Charity, telling of the clinics at Delhi, Calcutta and Madras 
which serve well in relieving the suffering of large numbers of 
people, both Masons and non-Masons.

The Grand Lodge of Indiana was constituted on January 
12, 1818 in an upstairs room of an inn called Schofield House, 
in Madison. In 1972 Indianapolis Valley of the Scottish Rite 
bought the building and the Grand Lodge formed a nonprofit 
organization to restore and keep up the property to preserve the 
Masonic heritage in Indiana. As funds were somewhat slow in 
coming in, the 1975 Annual Communication ordered a one 
year "crash" programme to raise funds equivalent to $2.00 per 
member for restoration and eventual endowment of the building. 
The 1976 Annual Communication voted to complete the project. 

A proposal which would have permitted voting at the altar 
was rejected. 

The total of per capita tax and assessments, payable with 
Grand Lodge dues in 1977, is $11.07, divided as follows: Grand 
Lodge General Fund, $1.98; Trustees, 9 cents; Indiana Masonic 
Home, assessment upon each dues-paying member, $9.00. The 
Home has a population of about 425. Annual cost per ambulatory 
resident is just under $6,000.00 and per hospital patient almost 
$11,000.00. 

M.W. Bro. J. N. Allan, P.G.M., represented our Grand 
Lodge at the Annual Communication. He heard the Grand 
Master report that as he travelled about the Jurisdiction he was 
impressed by the many younger officers and members in the 
programmes of individual lodges. "The condition of the Craft in 
Indiana is good and getting better," he declared.

During the year the Grand Lodge Historical Commission 
erected two markers: 

At Vincennes, on the actual site of the print shop where 
Elihu Stout, later Grand Master of Masons in Indiana, established 
the first newspaper in Indiana Territory, 1804. 

At Lafayette, on or near the spot where members of Sierra 
Nevada Lodge, U.D., a travelling Lodge set to work in March 
1849, embarked on a six-month's journey by boat and overland 
to join the California gold rush. 



IRELAND — 1974, 1975 

Annual Reports of the Grand Secretary 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Rt. Hon. The Earl of Donoughmore 

We last reported on the Grand Lodge of Ireland in 1975 
and even then the information dealt with the year 1973. Now we 
can catch up a little but the records, which arrived on August 9, 
1976, are still somewhat belated. Without a doubt, the most 
significant event on which to report was the celebration of the 
foundation of the Grand Lodge of Ireland in June 1975. The 
culmination came on St. John the Baptist's Day, June 24, in an 
Especial Communication of Grand Lodge held in the Concert 
Hall of the Royal Dublin Society, Ballsbridge. 

The various celebrations attracted Brethren from all parts 
of the world while the attendance of those from lodges in Ireland 
was most impressive. Each function drew large audiences. 

The programme followed this order: 

Sunday, 22 June: Service of Thanksgiving in the Cathedral 
and Collegiate Church of St. Patrick, Dublin. 

Monday. 23 June: Morning — Special Communication of the 
Grand Lodge of Instruction in Freemasons' Hall. Moles- 
worth Street, Dublin. 

Afternoon — Special Communication of Lodge of Re- 
search No. 200 in Freemasons' Hall. 

Evening — Reception at the Royal Dublin Society's 
premises, Ballsbridge, Dublin. 

Tuesday, 24 June: Especial Communication of the Grand 
Lodge of Ireland in the Royal Dublin Society's Concert 
Hall, Ballsbridge, at 3 o'clock.

Evening — Dinner for visiting delegations in Free- 
masons' Hall, Molesworth Street, Dublin. 

The Grand Master singled out M.W. Bro. George E. Turner, 
our representative, for special mention. The Official Record of 
Proceedings gave this warm account: 

"The Earl of Donoughmore, in welcoming M.W. Bro. George 
Turner, the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario, mentioned the fact that when the late Ray- 
mond Brooke was Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Ireland 
he had invited him, the then Provincial Grand Master of the South 
Eastern Province, to go to Canada to represent the Grand Lodge 
of Ireland at the hundredth anniversary of the foundation of the 
Canadian Grand Lodge. He had been very glad to go and felt 
highly honoured at being invited. T was a comparatively young 
Provincial Grand Master at that time,' added the Grand Master, 
'but I was thrilled at the opportunity to meet some of my 
Canadian Brethren. Though it is now some considerable time since 
that visit I can still remember — indeed, I shall never forget — the 
wonderful hospitality extended to me, the warmth of the friend- 
ship of our Canadian Brethren and generally the hearty welcome 
which I received. I am very happy indeed that this afternoon 
M.W. Bro. Dr. Turner has been able to make the journey to be 
with us in Grand Lodge on this happy occasion.' " 

The Official Record of Proceedings includes a brief 15-page, 
but comprehensive, history of the Grand Lodge by V.W. Bro. 
Richard E. Parkinson, B.Sc. Unfortunately it cannot be reprinted 
here. 

The account of the 250th Anniversary celebrations has kept 
us from the less happy aspects of Irish Freemasonry, especially 
in Northern Ireland. Yet the picture is not completely bleak. 
The Provincial Grand Master of Antrim, which includes Belfast, 
while lamenting "the depressing shadow that has now hung over 
Northern Ireland for so many years" said "We are not lacking 
in hopefulness." Outside Belfast "country Lodges show them- 
selves as healthy and enthusiastic as ever." They are finding, 
however, that high maintenance costs of their buildings are causing 
some concern. The Lisburn Brethren had built a fine new Hall, 
providing excellent facilities, to replace a less satisfactory meeting 
centre. 

The Provincial Grand Master included one paragraph which 
deserves notice: "I might add here that the Province of Antrim 
provided perhaps an unusual commemoration of the anniversary 
in the special service of thanksgiving for 250 years of Free- 
masonry under the guidance and governance of the Grand Lodge 
of Ireland, organized by Sholom Lodge 636 and King David 
Lodge 820 and held in the Belfast Synagogue." 



20 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Despite the notes of hope one cannot but be moved by half 
a dozen lines in the report of the Provincial Grand Master of 
Armagh. 

"Freemasonry in the Province suffered a severe loss through- 
out the year by the death of a number of its worthy members — 
unfortunately not all by natural causes. I think especially of the un- 
timely passing of three Brethren of Lodge 655 Newtownhamilton 
and deeply sympathise with the bereaved and the Lodge members 
in their tragic loss. To the families of other Brethren who at 
different times met the same cruel fate I extend my deepest 
sympathy." 



IRELAND — 1976 

Annual Report of the Grand Secretary. 
Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Rt. Hon. The Earl of Donoughmore 

This Report arrived just as we were going to press. It is 
gratifying to be able to catch up our arrears in the record of the 
Jurisdiction which, more than any other, exercises the minds of 
Masons throughout the world. We in Ontario are particularly 
concerned as many thousands of Irish men and women migrated to 
the colony or province, as the case might be, during the past 150 
years. 

The Grand Lodge held the March and December Quarterly 
Communications in Dublin. In June, Grand Lodge travelled to 
Londonderry and the Grand Master presided. The Provincial De- 
puty Grand Master of Londonderry and Donegal thanked the 
Grand Master for arranging for the meeting to be held there so 
as to make travel for the Brethren so much more easy. 

Grand Lodge met in the Masonic Hall, Newtownards, Belfast 
in October. The Grand Master who presided, thanked Lodge 
No. 193, MiUisle, County Down, for their splendid donation of 
£2,000 for Charity, which sum was raised to mark the 150th 
Anniversary of the Lodge. The Grand Master also received a 
cheque for £2,050 for the Masonic Boys' School, donated by 
Old Portora Lodge No. 859. 

The Provincial Grand Master of Antrim reported that sub- 
scriptions to various charities showed for 1976 an increase of 
£4,390 over the previous year. 

Despite the troubles which prevail enthusiasm and support 
for the Order are very much in evidence on all sides.

The April 1976 issue of "Haboneh Hahofshi"' or "The Free- 
mason" is of particular interest to us as a major article dealt with 
TTie First Masonic Lodge in the Holy Land. The introduction 
stated: "Our correspondent from Canada, sent us the necessary 
material concerning the first Masonic Lodge, consecrated in 
Jerusalem by the Grand Lodge of Canada. This is no doubt 
a historical matter, and we reprint the relevant citations from 
the proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Canada." 

Unfortunately, the correspondent is not named. The article 
gives extracts from the Proceedings of our Grand Lodge for 1873. 
1877 and 1882 which tell of the constitution of the Royal Solomon 
Lodge No. 293 in Jerusalem and its difficulties. 

The same issue gave an informative account of the organiza- 
tion of the Grand Lodge of Israel on October 20, 1953, under 
the Grand Lodge of Scotland. 

Today Tel-Aviv-Jaffa has 24 Lodges of which 14 work in 
Hebrew, 3 in English, 3 in German, 1 in Roumanian. 1 in French, 
1 in Arabic, and 1 in Spanish. 

Jerusalem has 8 lx>dges of which 5 work in Hebrew, 1 in 
Arabic, 1 in English and 1 in German. 

Haifa has 8 Lodges of which 4 work in Hebrew, 1 in Arabic 
and Hebrew, 1 in German, 1 in French, and 1 in English. 

Cities with two Lodges are Acre with 1 Arabic and 1 Hebrew; 
Petah-Tikva both in Hebrew; Ramat-Gan both in Hebrew. 

Cities with one Lodge are Ashkelon, Afula, Beer-Sheba, Eilat, 
Hadera, Nathania, Rishon-le-Zion, Tiberias, and Zefat all in 
Hebrew, Herzlia in English, Nahariya in German, Rama in 
Arabic and Rehoboth in Hebrew. 

The total number of active Lodges in Israel is 59 with a total 
membership of about 3000, divided among Tel-Aviv-Jaffa, Jerusa- 
lem, Haifa and elsewhere in the country. Their Meetings are 
scheduled so that some meet twice a month, some meet once a 
month, some meet on no fixed day, and 1 meets occasionally. No 
meetings are held on Friday or Saturday because it is expressly 
forbidden to have any meeting other than one for a religious

purpose by both Hebrew and Moslem faiths. Another interesting 
facet is that there is only one Masonic Temple in each city and 
all Lodges meet in the one Temple.

Lodges, 20. Membership, 4,362. Loss, 356. 

The Grand Master expressed concern over the third year of a 
loss in membership, largely arising from suspensions N.P.D. He 
attributed the situation to lack of communication between lodges 
and members. He also was concerned by the large number of 
American military personnel forming the active membership in 
some of the lodges. The transfer of active members in connection 
with their military duties places a burden on the lodges involved. 
He added: 

"Efforts must be made to develop, in relatively compressed 
periods of time, the skills and capabilities of remaining active 
members to adequately compensate for the members lost due to 
rotational assignment policies of the American Military. Effective 
and special Lodge programs are necessary in these cases to provide: 
Masonic education, training in Ritual proficiency, development 
of management and leadership capabilities among the officers." 

He also pointed out that the "influence of Masonry on the 
community and on the social life of Japanese is largely dependent 
upon the activity of our members, individually and as a group. 
Not only must we develop ourselves to exemplify the best traditions 
of our Craft but, in addition, to consider the effect of our actions 
in the light of Japanese culture." 

An intensive effort has been started to revise the Japanese 
version of the Ritual of the entire Three Degrees. The First Degree 
is nearing completion and immediately thereafter, work will start 
in revising the Second and Third Degrees.

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 23 

of Past Grand Masters. During the year 17 were erected. The 
dedication of grave markers and other occasions, required the 
Grand Lodge to meet in 23 Special Communications. The number 
would have been higher had not more than one Past Grand Master 
been buried in the same cemetery. Six Communications met to 
lay cornerstones, including those for a church and a library. 
One occasion of special interest was the dedicating of a monu- 
ment and plaque in River Front Park. Leavenworth, honouring 
Capt. Meriwether Lewis, Capt. William Clark and M.W. Bro. 
Richard R. Rees of the historic Lewis and Clark expedition. 
Lewis and Clark were members of St. Louis Lodge No. Ill and 
Rees, first Grand Master of Kansas, a member of Independence 
Lodge No. 76. 

The Kansas Masonic Foundation, Inc., completed ten years 
of steady progress. Masons have always been known for their 
concern for their members and their families. The Foundation 
was established to aid any who are in need regardless of colour, 
race, sex or religious belief. The Secretary-Treasurer reported 
in part: 

"It is true that the greatest if not all support which has 
come to the Foundation in it's ten year growth has come from 
members of the Masonic Fraternity, and perhaps members of 
Masonic families have benefited most from our operations. How- 
ever th"it may be, the reason for it is that the Foundation is not 
so well known among those outside the Masonic family. We 
consider every application for help or assistance on its need and 
its merits. . . 

"Our Foundation is making solid progress, ever keeping in 
mind that the fundamental purpose is to be of aid to those who 
need it most whether it be aid in securing an education, medical 
assistance in the field of oncology (cancer) or some form of 
encouragement in meeting the problems of life. 

"Greatest emphasis during the past year has been the support 
of the Mid-America Cancer Center located at the Kansas Uni- 
versity Medical Center in Kansas City. Kansas. Patients in in- 
creasing numbers there are being benefited through the latest 
proven methods of treating the dread disease."

24 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

During recent years the Grand Lodge programme has been 
devoted to education, not sent the Masons of Kentucky but taken 
to them by the Grand Lodge Officers at twenty educational meet- 
ings in different parts of the State. Attendance has improved 
each year. 

The Grand Lodge lost M.W. Bro. O. R. Ware (1913-14). 
At the time of his death he vi'as the Senior Past Grand Master 
in the United States. Sixty years a Past Grand Master is an ex- 
tremely rare honour. A lawyer by profession, M.W. Bro. Ware 
served in the U.S. House of Representatives, 1927-29. He was 92 
when he died. 

The Grand Master appointed a committee to update and 
revise the Constitution. "The Constitution has been amended 
with so many recommendations" that if readers are not careful 
they may come to the opinion that it contradicts itself. 

In 1929, a P.G.M., M.W. Bro. J. H. Cowles, created the 
Cowles Benevolent Fund by giving the Grand Lodge $10,000.00. 
The account now stands at $211,487.00.

Lodges, 288. Membership, 47,392. Loss, 234. 

Once again the Grand Secretary has produced a clear and 
well printed volume of 612 pages. The net loss of 234 is negligible 
in a membership of 47,392. The Proceedings include a table which 
shows the Membership and Work of Lodges for Past Fifty Years. 
The peak of total membership was 51,512 in 1964. The present 
figure is comparable with that of 1954. 

In speaking on the State of the Order, the Grand Master said : 

"In comparing conditions of Freemasonry in Louisiana 
with other Grand Jurisdictions, I am very happy to report they are 
very good. In comparing conditions within our own Jurisdiction, 
I am delighted to report, that they are the best I have seen in 
many, many years. This is a fine tribute to all Masons. We have 
had great cooperation from all Masons and related bodies of 
Masonry. Our State is moving forward. One reason 1 guess, is 
that those who are charged with leadership of our Lodges, District 
Lodges and with help of our District Deputy Grand Masters, in 
thinking in a positive manner, can best summed up as a big factor 
in helping bring about a good understanding in our State.

"It is better for each of us to serve the fraternity than try 
to have the fraternity try and serve us." 

The Executive Committee of the Grand Lodge Hall Board 
again reported a nominal profit. Two years before they were 
gravely concerned over finances. Mounting expenses in labour, 
materials and energy were partially controlled through economic 
measures aimed at getting the most out of every dollar spent.

Last year this Reviewer devoted almost all his remarks, 
regarding the Grand Lodge of Maine, to the thirty years which 
M.W. Bro. Ralph J. Pollard (P.G.M.) had spent in writing 
the Reviews for that Jurisdiction. The appreciation was timely 
as M.W. Bro. Pollard died on June 30, 1975. M.W. Bro. Aubrey 
L. Burbank (P.G.M.) has taken over the responsibility. He opened 
with a fine tribute to his predecessor and showed that the task is 
in good hands. 

The Grand Lodge operated two tours. One to Italy involved 
a week in Rome followed by a week travelling through Italy and 
southern Switzerland. The second was an eight-day tour to 
Hawaii. The quota was filled in two weeks, made up entirely by 
tourists from Maine. 

Following custom, the Grand Lodge held two Schools of 
Instruction. Only one officer was missing from the Bangor session 
and all were present at Auburn. Both meetings were successful. 

The Grand Lodge dedicated five Masonic Temples. Three 
were new constructions, one was remodelled from a church and 
the fifth had been the home of the I.O.O.F. The Grand Master 
concluded that these added five really fine temples to the list 
of those being built or remodelled. He did add. however, 
that there still are many more lodges in need of new halls. Some 
of the present buildings are unsafe, hard to heat, and inconvenient 
for the older members to ascend. He did believe however, that 
the new halls encouraged others to become interested in building 
for themselves.

As part of its centennial celebration the Grand Lodge pre- 
pared two plaques. One erected at the corner of Donald Street 
and EUice Avenue, Winnipeg, stated: "On this site in 1895 was 
built the first Masonic Temple, in use until 1969." From 1875 
to 1894 the Masonic brethren held their meetings at or near the 
corner of Portage Avenue and Main Street at one time or 
another in eleven different buildings. A fire in 1894 destroyed the 
then meeting place with all lodge records. Five lodges, with a 
total membership of only 608, had the foresight and faith to 
erect a building which served for three quarters of a century. The 
second plaque, placed on Seven Oaks house, marked the birthplace 
of William Inkster, born there in 1836. the first Junior Warden in 
a lodge in Manitoba and one of the founders of the first lodge 
in the Province. 

In his address, the Grand Master stated that "Appropriate 
papers were processed and filed in Ottawa to form our foundation 
to receive monies from the Brethren of Manitoba for their chosen 
charitable projects. When this foundation begins to operate fully 
we will receive receipts for charitable donations which will allow 
us Income Tax deductions."

The Grand Lodge met in a Special Communication to lay 
the cornerstone of the Paul B. Naylor Masonic Temple in Oak- 
land. Among the contents of the stone were the wills of Paul B. 
Naylor and Sarah B. Naylor. One is left to wonder if a bequest 
from the Naylor family made the building possible. Oakland 
Lodge No. 192 has a membership of 117. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 27 

The Grand Master described one "Special Event" which 
turned out to be extra special. 

"On Thursday, April 3, 1975, the Grand Lodge Officers con- 
ferred the Master Mason Degree in Birmingham Lodge No. 188 
during a power failure occasioned by high winds. What at first 
appeared to be an insurmountable obstacle turned out to be a 
blessing in disguise. The members had scoured the countryside 
and obtained a sufficient number of candles and lanterns to 
illuminate the Temple sufficiently to allow us to confer one of 
the most impressive degrees on two candidates that I have ever 
witnessed. It must have impressed others for I note in one of 
the neighboring Lodge bulletins they are having a 'Candlelight 
Degree'. "

The Grand Lodge met in Special Communication to partici- 
pate in "an unusual but meaningful ceremony" to dedicate a 
monument on the grave of M.W. Bro. Caleb Butler, Groton 
Cemetery, Groton. M.W. Bro. Butler, who was born in 1776. 
was a giant in his day. With limited education, he taught himself 
sufficiently to enter Dartmouth College from which he gradu- 
ated in ] 800. He served as a preceptor of Groton. now Lawrence. 
Academy and also studied civil engineering and lav/. He served 
as Grand Master, 1841-42. 

One of the most perplexing problems which confronted the 
Grand Master was the dispensing of alcoholic beverages in some 
of the Masonic Temples. On many occasions, particularly ladies 
nights and other social events, lodges have forsaken their Masonic 
homes to go to establishments where alcoholic beverages were 
available. In other cases, rules against the use of alcoholic bever- 
ages were violated. After laying down strict safeguards, the Grand 
Master ruled that: 

"The temperate use and dispensing of alcoholic beverages 
during exclusively social functions, fellowship and banquet periods, 
always in the confines of the social rooms, banquet room.s or 
dining halls, and always under the control of responsible persons, 
is not prohibited . . . Whether such use is allowed or prohibited, 
is for the local Masonic body and the Building or Temple Associ- 
ation, as the case may be, to determine."

The Jurisdiction is divided into Districts numbered I, 3, 4, 5

G.M. in all cases, except No. 3, is a P.G.M. All wrote excellent 
if brief reports. That for District No. 1, gives a typical account 
of lodge activity and a good picture of the variety of ways in 
which lodges work. The lodge names are also informative. 

"All the Lodges in the District have worked regularly during 
the year, with peace and harmony prevailing. 

"Toltec Lodge No. 1 : — This Lodge is again returning to its 
old activity and splendor. They had several candidates and per- 
formed good degree work. 

"Anahuac Lodge No. 3: — As usual, their meetings have 
been most interesting and their degree work of the highest quality. 
The W. Master and Officers are very proficient and should be 
congratulated for being the most active Lodge in this District. 

"Aztec Lodge No. 22: — Good advancement has been made in 
the translation of the Ritual and it is expected to be concluded 
during the current year. 

"Mexico Lodge of Research No. 24: — As in the past, this 
Lodge has been working intensively in the study of Masonic 
History in Mexico. Very interesting papers and talks have been 
presented on the subject and in consequence, much has been ac- 
complished. 

"Alexander von Humboldt Lodge No. 26: — The W. Master. 
Officers and Brethren have worked with diligence, enthusiasm and 
love for the Fraternity. Their ritualistic work in the German 
language is worthy of example and it is indeed a pleasure to 
observe the solemnity prevailing in their meetings."

The Fraternal Relations Committee offered some sound 
general opinions, before presenting their report proper, which 
bear repeating. 

"We as Freemasons cannot assume for one moment that our 
fraternity can escape the extremely high rate of tension presently 
permeating world society, because after all Masonic membership 
is also represented among active citizens in every strata of society 
and its affairs. As a matter of fact we can only express a hope and 
a wish, that by placing the Craft's faith in the willingness and 
ability of the administrators of the affairs of Freemasonry that we 
as brethren can sit down together and resolve such differences of 
opinion as may be thrust upon us by the society in which we live. 

"Fraternal Relationships in Foreign Affairs can best be 
practiced by keeping the above declaration in proper perspective at 
all times. Freemasonry caters to the affairs of mankind regardless 
of race, religious creed or national origin, nor is there anything 
in our Constitution which would exclude anyone, provided he 
exhibits a firm belief in the Supreme Being. 

"There never has been a disqualification, because of race or 
color, for Masonic membership . . . Moreover Grand Lodge 
claims no right to direct its constituent lodges as to whom they 
may or may not admit to membership. This is the sole responsi- 
bility of each individual lodge and this responsibility must be 
discharged in the true spirit of Brotherhood." 

The Grand Lodge approved a resolution to set up a com- 
mittee to investigate tiie facilities at the Masonic Home at Alma, 
Michigan, with a view to setting up a "proper Library or Museum, 
where Masonic Literature and other Masonic materials can be 
displayed." The Grand Lodge does not now have such a facility.

The Grand Master stated that efforts to revitalize Masonry 
in Minnesota are showing favourable results. A careful study of 



30 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

membership statistics shows that begimiing in 1973, the differential 
between the total gains per Lodge and the total losses per Lodge 
steadily decreased. Each year since 1972, the average number of 
raisings per Lodge has increased over the preceding year, while 
the average number of deaths per Lodge has decreased slightly. If 
this trend continues at its present rate, a net gain in membership 
should show some time between 1978 and 1980. 

He also commended the Brethren for their participation in 
Masonic workshops, schools of instruction, leadership training 
schools, bicentennial activities and table lodges. 

The Grand Master gave a lengthy account of a meeting 
he and several Grand Lodge Officers had with representatives of 
the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Minnesota. The meeting requested 
by The Honorable Milton Henry, Grand Master of the Prince 
Hall body, aimed to explore the possibility of recognition of 
that organization, was felt to be worthwhile. All agreed that it 
represented the "first step in a journey of a thousand miles."

Lodges, 304. Membership, 48,414. Gain, 6. 

The Grand Secretary, Bro. T. K. Griffis, presented his first 
report and it was notable as it showed a membership gain of six. 
A glance back through these Reviews reveals the last gain as 93 in 
1963. The list of Emergent Communications also reveals a great 
deal of activity. The Grand Lodge met to constitute one lodge, 
dedicate four and lay the cornerstone of one. In two cases the 
dedication was accompanied by the laying of a cornerstone. 

The Grand Lodge does not use any titles such as one finds 
in other jurisdictions. Thus the Grand Lecturer, Grand Master 
in 1953, is called Bro. Watt Carter. He reported on a year of 
marked progress. He attributed the renewed interest to the interest, 
participation and leadership of young members. He added: 

"Another factor contributing to the upsurge in Masonic 
interest is the building of new temples. The erection of new 
Lodge buildings and improvements in the older ones have been 
rather fantastic in recent years. Interest begets progress and pro- 
gress begets interest."

The Grand Master's Address was a model of direct speech. 
He admitted that he had feared that the loss in membership 
would be greater than it was when he learned that less than 
half of the lodge secretaries had availed themselves of the copies 
of letters which he had prepared for sending to members who were 
about to lose their membership for N.P.D. But the Grand Secretary 
sent out over 700 copies to the Secretaries of the constituent 
lodges who did use it. He continued "I have been encouraged 
and buoyed up throughout the year by the number of young men 
who have sought and gained admission into Freemasonry. Many 
of these younger Master Masons are serving as officers in their 
lodges .... Freemasonry in Montana is in good hands and will 
be preserved for future generations of Montanaans to enjoy." 

During the years 1975 and 1976 the Grand Lodges in the 
United States celebrated the Bicentennial of the United States in 
various ways. This Reviewer has not included descriptions of the 
many events as they would have added greatly to the length of 
these Reviews. The list of Dispensations records one type of 
celebration. 

'"Apr. 25, 1975 — To Missoula Lodge No. 13, together 
with Harmony Lodge No. 49 and Sentinel Lodge No. 155, 
to form in procession, officers wearing jewels and aprons, and 
participate in a public parade on May 3, 1975, in observance of 
the Bicentennial of the United States of America. This was a 
Masonic event: the three lodges paraded to a new public park 
and planted three trees to commemorate the Bicentennial." 

One item in the Grand Master's list of appreciations which 
speaks for itself must be included here. 

"Our special thanks and appreciation go to the Knights of 
Columbus Anaconda Council No. 882 for their offer of the use 
of their facilities to the Masonic bodies of Anaconda, following 
the explosion in the Masonic Temple of Acacia Lodge No. 33. 
In reply to our letter of thanks to them we received a letter 
reading in part as follows: 'It is gratifying to note your appreciation 
of our efforts to work in harmony with your organization in their 
time of duress, which I believe shows the true spirit of Fraternal- 
ism, because after all, both organizations strive to obtain the 
same objective, i.e., an undying devotion to God and Country 
and a deep respect for the rights of our fellow-man.' '"

The Nevada Research Lodge No. 1 acted as hosts for a tri- 
state meeting in Las Vegas. Research lodges from Arizona, 
southern California and Nevada took part. Papers and discussions 
covered many subjects. Out of the gathering came the idea of 
developing a research project to discover all the schools in the 
State named after Masons, of which there are many. 

The Policy, Education and Affairs Committee is a hard 
working body. Although they met only twice during the year they 
covered an agenda which dealt with 39 items. Among the subjects 
discussed were: to set a minimum of at least $100 as an initiation 
fee and a minimum of annual dues at $12 or $15, "When does 
Grand Lodge become involved with a lodge evidencing financial 
or management problems?" Should the Grand Lodge review 
papers prepared by a Research Lodge for publication? One item 
which was dealt with finally was the decision to recommend to 
the Records Committee to continue microfilming Grand Lodge 
Proceedings plus items listed as being contained in cornerstones, 
as far as they are available. 

The Committee also discussed "A district deputy plan" but 
agreed to leave the matter to the incoming Grand Master. The 
Proceedings do not list any District Deputy Grand Masters. How- 
ever, the slate of officers does list five W. Grand Trustees.

The Ritual Committee held five district meetings dxiring the 
year at each of which members were in attendance to answer 
questions and assist in improving the Work. The Committee added: 

"Since 1970 present Ritual work in the Entered Apprentice 
degree has been under consideration with a view to making it 
more impressive and interesting both to the Candidate and to the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

Brethren attending, and this has again been given some thought 
by your Committee and the Board of General Purposes. This is a 
very lovely degree and one that is most difficult to find room for 
improvement in, but some further discussion is expected in the 
coming year and this Committee would be most grateful for any 
and all suggestions that might assist in this regard." 

In view of the statement of the Committee one may wonder 
what suggestions may be advanced. When subjects like this have 
come up in other Jurisdictions the conclusion has been almost 
without fail, in the experience of this Reviewer, leave a good 
thing alone. Tinkering is likely to be damaging. 

The Committee also said: 

"Further thought and study has been given to the advisability 
of adopting a form of ceremony for Public or Semi-Public Installa- 
tion of Officers in Subordinate Lodges in this Grand Jurisdiction 
and at a meeting of the Board of General Purposes held on Jan- 
uary 10, 1976 the following motion was presented and adopted: 
'That Craft Lodges be permitted Semi-Public or Public Installations 
provided they be conducted by the Grand Master, or a Past 
Grand Master delegated by the Grand Master, on a one year 
trial basis.' Your Committee concurs with this resolution 
and would recommend that it receive the approval of this Grand 
Lodge." 

Since the report was received and adopted by the Grand 
Lodge one can assume that the proposals will be tried. 

The Junior Grand Warden provided an interesting note on the 
relations between the Grand Lodges of New Brunswick and Prince 
Edward Island. 

"Our sister and adjacent jurisdiction, the Grand Lodge of 
Prince Edward Island, F. & A.M. celebrated their Centennial An- 
niversary covering a period of one week at various points through- 
out the Province, culminating with the convocation of the Grand 
Lodge being held at the Charlottetown Hotel in that City on 
Friday and Saturday, June 28 and 29, 1975. 

"The event is of particular historical interest to the Masonic 
Fraternity of New Brunswick inasmuch as the Grand Lodge of 
New Brunswick constituted and installed the first Grand Lodge 
Officers of Prince Edward Island. This custom has been followed 
out and continued without interruption for the past 100 years. It is 
interesting to note that first installation in 1875 was made by the 
then M.W. Grand Master J. V. Ellis and that 50 years afterward 
in 1925 at the celebration of their fifty years the installation 
was made by his son Most Wor. Grand Master George D. Ellis. 

"The convocation was largely attended with over 300 delegates 
from various Provinces of Canada, the U.S.A. and Costa Rica."

Once again, only one lodge was not represented at the Semi- 
annual Communication and none failed to have representation 
at the Annual Communication. 

The Grand Lodge acted as host for the 20th Annual North- 
east Conference on Masonic Education and Libraries. The Con- 
ference, one of the outstanding Masonic educational conferences 
held in the United States, embraces the Jurisdictions of Maine, 
New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connec- 
ticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, 
Virginia and the District of Columbia. 

The Committee on Restoration of William Pitt Tavern, in 
Portsmouth, looked into the progress of the restoration. In 1971 
these Reviews reported on the project. The Grand Lodge of New 
Hampshire was born in the building on July 8, 1789. The original 
plan undertaken by the Grand Lodge was to restore the lodge 
room area, the third floor of the building. But this cannot be 
done until the lower levels are restored. The structure is of histor- 
ical significance not only to Masons but to the State and the 
Nation. This is the original building, not a restoration. Some of 
those entertained in this 18th century tavern were George 
Washington, General Lafayette and John Hancock. The Grand 
Lodge has already set aside $23,000.00 towards the restoration.

Masonic workshops were held in every district during the 
course of the Masonic year with the District Deputy Grand Master 
of each district presiding. All district workshops were attended 
by the Grand Master. The purpose of these workshops was to 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 35 

inform the brethren of the programmes pushed by the Grand 
Lodge. 

The New Mexico Freemason, now in its 41st year, goes 
monthly to nearly 14,000 individuals including Entered Apprentices 
and numerous interested widows. 

The Grand Lodge has an active Public Schools Committee 
as well as similar committees in the constituent lodges. Desirable 
as the aims of these committees may be such activities would not 
be countenanced in our Jurisdiction as M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop 
pointed out in these Reviews for 1961. 

Plans for the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of 
Masonry in New Mexico are well organized. They include a 
banquet and church service. The Committee is publishing a 
volume, already written, of the History of New Mexico Free- 
masonry through 100 years. The Grand Lodge has budgeted 
$10,000 for a concise history, drawn from the available 500 
page manuscript.

' Although only indirectly related to the Grand Lodge of 
New Zealand, the Proceedings include a concise but informative 
history of the Grand Lodge of Finland. Since the information was 
new to this Reviewer it may also not be without interest to 
readers of these Reviews. 

"The Grand Lodge of Finland has requested the establishment 
of regular fraternal relations. This Grand Lodge was formed in 
1924 under the sponsorship of the Grand Lodge of New York. 
It has a strength of 72 Lodges and 2900 members. The Masonic 
history of Finland stems from that of Sweden and Lodges have 
existed there since 1756. Modern Freemasonry began in Finland 
when in 1922 a group of Finnish Brethren presented a Petition 
to the Grand Lodge of New York for a Lodge to be Chartered in 
Helsinki under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of New York. 
The Petition was granted and the Lodge was warranted and 
constituted on 18 August 1922. The Lodge grew in strength and 



i6 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

daughter Lodges were established and in 1924 three Lodges 
petitioned the Grand Lodge of New York to constitute them into 
a Sovereign Grand Lodge of Finland and this was granted. The 
Grand Lodge of Finland has been accorded fraternal recognition 
by most regular Grand Lodges including those of England, Ireland 
and Scotland and all American, Australian (except Tasmania) and 
Canadian Grand Lodges. By oversight no previous request has 
been submitted to the Grand Lodge of New Zealand until last year. 
The Board will recommend that recognition be accorded." 

The Grand Lodge of New Zealand accorded the recognition 
requested. 

Proceedings, by their very nature, usually contain few refer- 
ences to ritual. One interesting matter which arose during the 
year related to the opening of the V.S.L. The Board of General 
Purposes described the problem. 

"The instruction contained in the standard Ritual of the Three 
Degrees provides that when opening the V.S.L. in the First Degree, 
it shall be opened at either Ruth II or Psalm CXXXIII. Over a 
long period of time Lodges have found that the pages of the 
V.S.L. at these two places have become soiled, torn and loose. 
The Board considers that there are several alternative portions of 
the V.S.L. at which it could be opened which would enable Lodges 
to spread the wear considerably at their discretion, and the Board 
will recommend the adoption of a wider list of alternatives to 
achieve this end." 

It was moved that the Standard N. Z. Ritual be amended by 
altering the rubric following the Opening of the Lodge in the 
first degree to permit no fewer that 33 options, involving all 
Degrees. Although of interest, the references are too numerous 
to list here. Two, however, from the writings of St. Paul were 
deleted by amendment. The motion carried as amended. 

A ruling of the Grand Lodge prohibits the raising of funds 
from lotteries. Many districts support the activities of District 
Masonic Trusts by promoting gala days, fair days and sporting 
tournaments. The Grand Lodge has received numerous requests 
to remove the complete prohibition on lotteries and to substitute a 
qualified approval. The Board concurred and recommended an 
amendment to place the control in the hands of the Provincial 
Grand Masters. After some adverse comments, the motion carried. 



A proposal to add a lengthy lecture (given in full in the Pro- 
ceedings and much too long to be included here) to the ritual of 
the Second Degree which involved an extended explanation of the 
Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences was defeated.

Lodges, 433. Membership, 40,820. Loss, 592. 

Thanks to the early arrival of the Proceedings for 1976, we 
have a really up-to-date record of the Masonic activities in New 
Zealand. 

The first item of business at the Annual Communication, after 
the confirmation of the minutes, was the election of a new Grand 
Master, M.W. Bro. A. E. Shuttleworth having completed his three 
year term. M.W. Bro. Donaldson was the unanimous choice. 

The Board of General Purposes proposed an amendment to 
the Constitution to allow the use of the Square and Compasses 
above funeral notices and other Masonic "notifications" but 
otherwise prohibited its use for commercial publications. The 
Board considered the rule as it stood to be too restrictive and 
thought that the new rule would make notices more distinguish- 
able to Brethren and would disclose nothing to the public with 
which they were not already familiar. 

A representative of every Lodge in the Jurisdiction was 
present at the Installation of the Grand Master-Elect as well as 
many distinguished representatives of the sister Australian Grand 
Lodges. The Grand Master took the opportunity to suggest several 
ways and means to strengthen and extend Masonry in New Zea- 
land. He pointed out the responsibilities which a lodge owes to 
the candidate and reminded his hearers that they do not end 
until the candidate has been thoroughly integrated with the Lodge 
and its customs and is perfectly at home with all members. He 
thought that a new Brother should be encouraged to attend re- 
hearsals where the atmosphere is less formal than it is at regular 
meetings. 

He concluded: "Freemasonry in this country is in good heart, 
and it is encouraging to know that candidates are coming forward 
regularly. Therefore it is for us to make sure that happy state of 
affairs continues."

The Grand Lodge met in six Emergent Communications to 
dedicate new Temples and twice to lay cornerstones. On each 
occasion the record stated: "The Grand Master dispensed with 
Labor and several who were not Master Masons were admitted 
for the Ceremony." Subsequently the report continued "Those who 
were not Master Masons retired and Labor was resumed." On 
another occasion the Grand Lodge met to unveil an historical 
marker commemorating the formation of the Grand Lodge in 
1787. On this occasion the Grand Master "dispensed with Labor 
and the Grand Lodge repaired to the Town Common for the 
unveiling." The Honorable and W. Brother Sam J. Ervin, Jr., 
U.S. Senator (retired). Grand Orator of the Grand Lodge, 
delivered the oration. He also delivered the oration at the Annual 
Communication. 



NORTH DAKOTA — 1976

Grand Master. 1976-77 — M.W. Bro. W. M. Kirby 

Lodges, in. Membership, 10,000. Loss. 171. 

With such a round figure for the membership total it seems 
a pity that the largest Lodge in North Dakota. Shiloh No. 1, 
should have a membership of 601 and not a round 600. However, 
Century Lodge No. 60 has a membership of 100. So much for 
coincidence. 

The loss of 171 in the total membership is considerably lower 
than the corresponding figure for some years. Last year we 
reported that a total of 200 candidates raised had not been matched 
nor surpassed since 1967. This year the figure rose to 213. 

The Grand Master recorded 64 visitations. These included the 
Grand Lodges of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. He also 
attended the Banff Conference; 75th Anniversary, Alameda, Sask.; 
and a lodge meeting in Brandon. 

The Report on the Condition of Freemasonry showed that 
the Masons of North Dakota "are a travelling lot." No less than 
84 percent of the 74 lodges which replied to a questionnaire report- 
ed that they had "visited another Lodge either as a Lodge function 
or as individual members." 

According to the biography of the Grand Master. M.W. Bro. 
R. K. Muhs, Sr.. "His term as Grand Master was highlighted by 
the Masonic Memorial auditorium Project in the Peace Garden." 
The ground dedication ceremony was held on the site in 1976. 
No further details were included.

While the number of raisings, affiliations and reinstatements 
approximate those of the previous two years the number of 
deaths, demits and suspensions showed a welcome reduction. 

The Grand Lodge presented the Erasmus James Phillips 
Medal to M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell. The award is particularly 
gratifying as the number of such presentations is strictly limited. 

The Grand Master was present at the Installations of 36 
lodges, 24 during the month of January. He also attended all 15 
District Meetings. 

The Deputy Grand Master also had a busy year. In addition 
to his many Masonic duties he visited hospitals, shut-ins. Masonic 
widows, and others. Visits covered 120 six hour days.

The Grand Secretary opened his report: "I am almost afraid 
to write this — but at this moment NO Ohio Lodge has sustained 
damage to a Temple because of fire, lightning, wind or vandal- 
ism this year." 

Only five lodges were not represented at the Annual Com- 
munication. 

The Library Committee expressed regret that more Masonic 
students do not make use of the reference library, located in 
Worthington. "It is unquestionably one of the finest Masonic 
libraries to be formed anywhere." 

The Public Relations Committee suggested that the Grand 
Lodge construct a Masonic lodge over the old general store in 
a historic village reconstructed by the Ohio Historical Society near 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Columbus. The Grand Lodge authorized the completion of the 
lodge room at a cost not to exceed $20,000.00, with an annual 
appropriation of approximately $12,000.00 for staffing and 
maintenance.

The Grand Lodge laid five cornerstones for lodge buildings 
and dedicated four new lodge buildings. One cannot fail to be 
impressed by the clear evidence of activity in the constituent lodges. 

The Grand Master attended the 100th Anniversary of the 
laying of the cornerstone of the "Old Union Agency Building" 
at Muskogee which now houses the Five Civilized Tribes Museum. 
This was the first cornerstone laid by the Grand Lodge of Indian 
Territory, the ancestor of the present Grand Lodge of Oklahoma. 
On that occasion, the record states. Father Joseph Samuel Morrow, 
who served as Special Deputy Grand Master for the occasion, 
laid the stone. The record, however, does not explain the title 
Father.

Oregon Military Lodge No. 223, Frankfurt, Germany, which 
has been mentioned now and then in these Reviews was forced to 
move from its military base. The charter was returned to Oregon 
and the Lodge is now established in the Temple of Champoeg 
Lodge No. 27, in Canby, Oregon. Of the 381 members, scattered 
all over the world, 224 chose to retain their membership. 

The Grand Lecturer presented a brief and thought provoking 
report. Two paragraphs stood out. 

"The ritual is the life of Masonry, and all of the beautiful, 
character building lessons of our Fraternity are contained therein. 
The ritual is grammatically correct in every detail; modern; con- 
cise and unmistakably clear, so it should be the ambition and goal 
of every officer and of every member to be proficient in the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 41 

esoteric work of the three degrees: Perfection in the use of the 
ritual requires constant and thoughtful study to the end that 
our candidates and members may be favorably impressed with the 
teachings and aims of Freemasonry. 

"I have always noticed that Lodges that do the best work 
always have good attendance. It seems that the brethren do come 
to meetings to learn and if they know that they will see a poorly 
conferred degree or a poor opening ceremony, they may wonder 
if it is worth while to attend."

The active Committee on Masonic Temples, Halls and Lodge 
Rooms, reported: "We have had a very busy year as many of 
our Symbolic Lodges were engaged in upgrading their facilities 
by acquiring land and erecting new buildings or converting old 
structures for Masonic purposes." The details are impressive. 
Nine lodges have completed or are completing new buildings; 
three have bought and are altering church buildings to suit their 
purposes; two others have bought non-church buildings, one of 
which was an American Veterans' Home; seven have bought plots 
on which to build. Pocono Lodge No. 780, Swiftwater, bought ten 
acres. The Lodge has a membership of 222, an increase of one 
during the year. 

No doubt some time in the future a student of Masonic 
history will write an article on the recycling of church structures 
as Masonic buildings. One finds the activity in many Jurisdictions. 

The retiring Grand Master reported that the programme to 
renovate and refurbish the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia had 
continued. "It is acclaimed by many to be the most beautiful 
edifice of its kind in the world."

42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

During his term of office the Grand Master visited every 
Lodge in the Jurisdiction, supported by many Grand Lodge 
Officers on every occasion. He and his wife, as representatives of 
the Grand Lodge attended the celebrations of the Knights of 
Columbus at their Columbus Day banquet and a few days later 
attended Mass "at St. Pius IX Church in Parkdale followed by 
installation of 'fourth degree' Knights." They also attended a 
lobster supper and dance in Souris that culminated "the State 
Council Annual State Convention." Their hosts were most gracious 
on every occasion. 

Each year the Grand Lodge awards four bursaries of 
$250.00 to Masons, their wives, sons or daughters. These awards 
are based on academic achievement and demonstrated financial 
need. Thirteen applications were received. Two Masons, a son and 
a daughter received bursaries. 

The Grand Historian presented an interesting report. He spoke 
of the problems of communication and transportation during the 
early days of the Craft in Prince Edward Island. In 1876, the 
Grand Master missed the Annual Communication, held in Feb- 
ruary, as a severe snow storm cancelled train service. The first 
word of the formation of the United Grand Lodge of England 
by the "Modern" and "Ancient" Grand Lodges in 1813 was not 
recorded in a lodge in Prince Edward Island until August, 1818. 
St. John's Lodge No. 1, Charlottetown, was established in 1797. 
The Lodge Minutes, held in Nova Scotia, are a veritable history 
of Freemasonry in the Province as the next Lodge. Victoria Lodge 
No. 2, Charlottetown was not chartered until 1857.

The Grand Master reported: 

"With the cooperation of Father Irenee Beaubien, s.j. and 
the assistance of V.W. Bro. J. G. Leboeuf, a Roman C.:tholic 
mass for Masons was held in the Chapel of Le Convent Jesus 
Maria, at which a large number of Brethren of all denominations 
participated. All present agreed that an event such as this could 
only serve to bind men of all creeds closer and promote harmony." 

As the world is large and Freemasonry widespread, one 
must hesitate to call this event unique. Nevertheless, it certainly 
was notable. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 43 

The Grand Master has also planned to form a committee 
without delay to formulate the arrangements for an Ecumenical 
Divine Service to be held in the Spring of 1977. Here again, it is 
hoped that greater numbers will make every effort to participate 
in future services of this nature. 

While visiting during the year the Grand Master laid special 
emphasis on the following themes: 

To determine the reason for non attendance; 

To give aid and comfort to the distressed; 

To endeavour to supply their wants and necessities; 

To give support to the widows and orphans 

To assist the aged and infirm; 

To recognize our ladies for their support given each of us. 

He concluded: 

"Brethren, Masonry is not confined to Lodge Meetings and 
Ritual only. We must strenuously practice the principles and tenets 
laid down by our Ancient Brethren to the best of those abilities 
granted us by the Supreme Being, thereby bringing satisfaction 
to ourselves and honour to the Craft." 

The South Shore Forum and Le Club d'Etude Macconique 
continue with their efforts in providing programmes of Masonic 
education for those who are endeavouring to further their Masonic 
knowledge.

The Grand Master attended a unique ceremony in his own 
lodge. In Charlesville. in November. 1925, four Brothers 
Armstrong were initiated in the presence and with the assistance 
of their father V.W. Bro. John Armstrong, the second initiate of 
that Lodge in December, 1890. Three — V.W. Bro. Tom and Bros. 
Bob and Barney Armstrong — lived to be invested with their Fifty- 
Year Service Jewels on the 22nd November, 1975 in their Mother 
Lodge by the Grand Master whose Mother Lodge is also 
Charlesville. 

The Board of General Purposes reported at the Quarterly 
Communication that a booklet "What is Freemasonry" has been 
readily accepted by all and over 11,500 copies have been circulated 
to Lodges and Brethren. For a considerable time the Board has 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

watched with growing concern the depletion of its numbers and the 
fact that Candidates were not available in sufficient numbers to 
replace the losses. 

The Board explained: "This booklet is aimed at bridging the 
knowledge gap which we all seem to be concerned about — just 
what we can do or tell a suitable person who might be interested 
in Freemasonry. There is nothing in the booklet that cannot be 
read by anyone. In fact we suggest that if you consider a friend 
would become a good freemason, there is no reason why he or 
his wife should not read the booklet and ask questions concerning 
the Craft. Read the booklet yourself and do not be afraid to give 
a copy to any person you consider worthy and who evinces interest 
in the Craft." 

The Board dealt with a matter which has been discussed for 
some time. "There has been a continuous interest in Brethren 
wearing name badges and the Board has now granted permission 
for badges to be worn at Festive Board only. The Board is of 
opinion that badges should be of uniform design and its presently 
considering this matter. It is believed that if the Board obtains 
the name badges and sells them to the Lodge that Lodges would 
benefit in the cost of each badge. As soon as this matter is 
resolved, a circular will be forwarded to all Lodges giving details 
and costs." 

The Grand Master described a new development in public 
relations in Western Australia. 

"In October last in Perth, our Brethren decided to invite the 
T.V. Stations to take pictures inside the Grand Temple (tempor- 
arily located in the Perth Concert Hall, a very beautiful auditor- 
ium). When all the delegations had entered, and taken up their 
positions, we all stood up. Cameramen from two of the Stations 
played on the Brethren and the Hall for several minutes and then 
withdrew. The previous afternoon, at the Lord Mayor's Reception, 
I had been volunteered by the Grand Master, M.W. Bro. John 
Murdoch, to be interviewed. For approximately five minutes, I 
answered and I trust satisfactorilv. questions concerning our 
Order."

The Bicentennial Committee produced a 104 page book 
entitled "A Bicentennial Review of Rhode Island Freemasonry." 
A copy went to every member in the Jurisdiction. 

The Grand Master believes that one of the problems faced 
in Rhode Island is lack of communication. He held discussions 
during the year with members of concordant bodies and thinks 
that it will be feasible to put out a statewide newsletter for all 
bodies.

Lodges, 182. Membership, 13,182. Loss, 251. 

Since there are 182 Lodges in the Jurisdiction, which covers 
a vast area, the Grand Master realized that he could not visit them 
all. At the same time he thought that many should be visited. He 
therefore chose one third, or 60, and asked specific Lodges to 
invite two or more neighbouring Lodges to meet with them. 
In this way he was able to centre on the 61 which have major 
problems and to visit with others. He probably met with half the 
resident members of the Jurisdiction. 

The Grand Master made many sound observations, based on 
the experiences of his year in office. Two paragraphs, of several, 
gave a good example of his thoughts. 

"There are many things that might be of concern to a Grand 
Master, however, I singled out four that I undertook to adjust 
during my year. I endeavoured to reduce the number of demits 
issued to members who had no intention of affiliating immediately 
with another Lodge: reduce the number of suspensions for non- 
payment of dues; provide some instruction and leadership to the 
senior lodge officers and to provide a clearer understanding to the 
membership, their families, their friends, and the people of the 
community of what Freemasonry was all about and to identify 
some of the work the fraternity attempts to do for all concerned. 
I believe some gain has been made in all four areaS through direct 
contact by myself and through the work of the D. D.G.Ms. 

"It is of great concern to me that we have forgotten one of our 
basic principles — Charity. Our Benevolent Fund is there for a 
purpose and so is the Benefit Fund. It seems to me we as Masons 
are not attending to the needs of our members, their families and 
in some cases our friends who need our assistance. Most people 
today are busy and have few needs that they cannot meet in this 
affluent society while the less fortunate are overlooked and indeed 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

forgotten. We must take time to care and think about these lesb 
fortunate who have pride and will not seek our help. The Worship- 
ful Master and his senior officers must be ever mindful of this 
responsibihty and diplomatically ensure that all such cases receive 
their attention. The Worshipful Master is charged with many more 
responsibilities than merely conducting his business and emergent 
meetings."

The Grand Master Mason, replying to the toast to the Grand 
Lodge at the Annual Communication, said that during the year 
the only place abroad which he had visited Masonically was 
France. He confined his travels to Scotland and had at last manag- 
ed to visit the most northerly Lodge in the Constitution. Lodge 
Aurora No. 1654, Unst, Shetland. Lodge Aurora is situated on an 
island with a population of only 1,000 people, which means that 
every Freemason is known and all their actions are closely watched. 
They must endeavour to make themselves worthy of their high 
tradition. 

"What has really delighted me in Scotland as a whole," the 
Most Worshipful Grand Master Mason commented, "has been the 
immense involvement of the Brethren in different aspects of the 
lives of the communities. I was in a Lodge in the Mull of Kintyre 
seven days ago. They had already contributed very large sums of 
money to the war disabled hospital at Erskine, and they made a 
very generous donation to Grand Lodge funds. Other Lodges all 
over Scotland are doing the most interesting and original things 
in the way of the betterment of the unfortunate members of the 
local community — not the Brethren of the community, but the 
unfortunate members of the community — and that is what my 
predecessor. Brother David Liddell-Grainger. and I have been 
stressing to you all along, that it is by involvement in the communi- 
ties in which we live that we as Freemasons can make our greatest 
impact. We can make the world at large see that Masonry stands 
for something that is good not only by practising its principles 
inside the Lodge but outside in the community. That, Brethren, 
is to my mind the important thing, and now that it is happening, 
what a great future we have."

The highlight of the first six months of the year was the 
"Consecration of Lodge Arafura at Nhulunbuy." The new Lodge 
is about 2,300 miles from Adelaide and some hundreds of miles 
from their nearest neighbours in Darwin and Katherine. The 
Grand Director of Music and the Grand Organist combined to 
record a programme of music for the occasion. 

The Jurisdiction suffered a great loss through the death 
of R.W. Bro. Evan Mander-Jones Who had almost completed a 
history of the Grand Lodge. R.W. Bro. Paul Hilbig will complete 
the work.

At seven of the eleven Special Communications called, the 
Grand Lodge dedicated three lodges, dedicated and laid corner- 
stones at two more and laid two cornerstones for two new temples. 
Cornerstones, by their nature, must be laid in public. Masons in 
our Jurisdiction, however, may be surprised to learn that the 
dedications of lodges in South Carolina are also public. The 
typical account of these events runs along the following lines: 

"The Grand Lodge was called from labor to refreshment 
and under the direction of the Acting Grand Marshal, the Grand 
Lodge Officers entered the Hall, assumed their station and 
places, and then proceeded with the dedicatory ceremony in 
accordance with ancient Masonic usage. 

"The Grand Master introduced the Grand Lodge Officers 
and several of them spoke briefly congratulating the Brethren of 
the Lodges upon their accomplishment in the erection of their 
new Masonic Temple. 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"The Worshipful Masters of Shibboleth, Equality, and Pro- 
gress Lodges were introduced. An announcement was made that 
the banquet would be held in the dining room of the Shrine Club 
which was next door to the Lodge Hall and that all were invited 
to attend. 

"The ladies and non-Masons were then excused from the 
Hall after which the Grand Lodge was called from refreshment 
to labor and closed in ample form." 

The Grand Master spoke on the subject of outdoor meetings 
for which there are more and more requests. The forerunner was 
the Rock Quarry Meeting held annually "in Wing's Quarry near 
Traveler's Rest." It was first planned 35 years ago. The movement 
is growing. As the Grand Master said: 

"This year I had the pleasure of attending several other open 
air meetings which I am sure will rapidly grow in popularity and 
tradition. The Inspirational Meeting for the TTiird Masonic 
District is held in the Indian Field Camp Ground near St. George. 
Last year was the third year this particular location has been 
used and is one all South Carolina Masons should visit. The 
Camp Ground possesses an impressive historical background 
which is associated with the religious growth in the St. George 
community and is a place heaped with inspiration. 

"Other open air meetings which seem to be growing in 
popularity are: Ferguson Mountain near York, and the 'Cow 
Pasture' which is located near Hickory Tavern. These unusual 
meetings attract masons in large numbers and the fellowship 
and food are really great."

The dominant theme at the 28 District meetings and at 
many other Masonic gatherings during the year was "A Time 
for Rededication." The emphasis related the Masonic heritage 
to the establishment and development of the United States. All 
but three District Meetings were open to Masons and non-Masons 
alike including ladies and young people. This type of public 
meeting has been used for several years and has been deemed 
effective. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 49 

The Grand Master approved four dispensations for outdoor 
meetings, provided proper precautions were taken. 

Although membership declined, the loss was the lowest in 
seven years. Many lodges are receiving applications for the first 
time in years. Applications increased by 16 per cent. One lodge, 
Rapid City No. 25 had 19 applications for the E.A. Degree at 
one time. This is the second largest lodge in the Jurisdiction, with 
493 members. Rapid City has two lodges, the second Mount 
Rushmore No. 220 is also one of the largest with 392 members. 

For the first time in some years, the Grand Lodge was invited 
to lay a cornerstone of a non-Masonic Temple, the Rapid City 
Boy's Club building. Rapid City must be a stronghold of Masonry. 
It is the largest city in the state and in 1970 had a population 
of 43,836.

At the February Half-yearly Communication, the Grand 
Master spoke at length on the place of Freemasonry in the com- 
munity. His views were clear and he did much to answer the dis- 
satisfaction of those who claim that Freemasonry is not doing 
enough. 

"Freemasons work for the welfare of mankind. It is not the 
business of the Craft to go out into the world as such, and to ally 
itself to particular plans of social reform. Where that has been 
tried by Freemasonry in some countries of Europe, Freemasonry 
itself has disappeared. How then does it work for the welfare of 
mankind? Let me answer the question this way, quoting the late 
M.W. Bro. Judge Book, of Victoria. If we look at the history of 
the past, we find that there have been schemes of every sort and 
kind for the reform and betterment of mankind. Why have these 
schemes not succeeded? The reason, I believe is simply this — that 
there have not been enough men fine enough of soul, wide enough 
of sympathy, strong enough of character, and noble enough of 
nature to make those dreams come true. What we need to make 
our dreams come true, our social dreams, our national dreams, our 
international dreams is not so much more laws and regulations. 
Some people think that perhaps we've got too many of these 
already. What we need is better men with more heroic integrity. 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"Therefore, when Freemasonry, instead of allying itself to 
plans of social reform, and becoming involved in dispute, devotes 
all its benign energy and influence to enobling the souls and 
strengthening the characters of individual men, then it is doing 
fundamental work on behalf of all enterprise. By its ministry to 
the individual, drawing him into the circle of a great fellowship, 
exhalting his faith, refining his ideals, enlarging his sympathies 
and strengthening his character, in this way Freemasonry best 
serves society, the State in which we live, and the world at large. 
The Craft will not attract men into its lodges if it tries to be any- 
thing but Freemasonry. 

"I have pondered deeply on this. I do not think for one minute 
that we should compete with the Service Clubs, but there is so 
much we can do in the community to portray the distinguishing 
characteristic of a mason's heart. I spoke earlier of our Homes. 
Many lodges are doing great work raising money to help certain 
institutions, and willingly donate money at Christmas time to bring 
a little happiness. A group of lodges on the North-West Coast are 
trying to arrange to give underprivileged children holidays, and 
all this I heartily commend. Taking elderly citizens for a drive, 
and assisting the Blood Bank are worthy projects."

Grand Master, 1976-77 — M.W. Bro. J. P. Buck 

Lodges, 387. Membership, 97,806. Gain, 881. 

Last year we reported that the gain of 550 in membership 
was the largest since 1967. The 1976 gain was the largest in 15 
years. For 35 years the Grand Secretary has been able to report a 
net gain, the largest being 5,076 in 1946. 

The Grand Lodge did a great deal of work on the Grand 
Lodge Building in Nashville. The offices of the Grand Master, 
Grand Secretary and Board of Control were redecorated and re- 
furbished. There were 117 windows in the building which had 
either been broken by vandals or had fallen out from age. These 
were all replaced and all windows were "corked, painted and 
cleaned." 

During the year the Grand Lodge learned that the first Grand 
Master of Masons in Tennessee, M.W. Bro. Thomas Claiborne, 
Grand Master, 1813 and 1814, was buried in an unmarked grave in 
Nashville. The Grand Lodge bought and erected an appropriate 
marker. 

The Grand Master expressed his appreciation of the efforts 
of those who secured an amendment to the Tennessee Code to 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 51 

keep lodge properties not used for commercial purposes, tax 
exempt. 

The Chairman of the Bicentennial Committee gave an 
address in which he reported on the Masonic backgrounds of 
Andrew Jackson, Samuel Houston and the Marquis de Lafeyette. 
Jackson was elected Grand Master in 1822, when Houston was 
present. Lafeyette was present in 1825. The speaker also stated 
that of the 14 presidents of the United States only Jackson and 
Truman had been a Grand Master.

The Grand Secretary's report is one of the best organized in 
all the Proceedings read by this Reviewer. Not only does he give 
the figures for the current and previous year but he also gives 
a tabulated statement for three years for purposes of comparison. 
Although a loss figure of 2,183 is not small, it is not great when 
considered against the total membership. It works out at 2.24 
members per lodge. 

The Grand Lodge dedicated no fewer than 13 new lodge 
buildings. In addition the Grand Lodge also "levelled" 13 corner- 
stones. The buildings involved in most cases were schools. Four 
lodges, a county courthouse and county jail also were included. 

The Grand Master wrote a monthly column for the Texas 
Freemason. Among his subjects during the year were: Rededi- 
cation. Public Schools, Masonic Leadership and America and 
Masonry. A column on Past Masters showed the contribution they 
can make to a lodge. 

In the list of "Dispensations granted" 20 lodges were per- 
mitted to move into their new Masonic Temples. Twenty-three 
lodges celebrated centennials. The new, in buildings, and the old, 
in lodges, are well combined in Texas.

52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master was pleased with what he saw in his year 
in office. He found the condition of the constituent lodges to be 
excellent, both financially and otherwise. There is sufficient 
influx of new members to reduce greatly the practice of having 
Past Masters return to the line of officers. The average age of 
members is going down and many lodges are having to hold 
extra meetings for degree work. Since Unity Lodge No. 18 in 
Ogden, raised 13. it must have had a busy year. Three lodges 
raised nine each. One small lodge, Basin No. 20, in Roosevelt, 
with only 65 members initiated four.

Last year we remarked on the comprehensiveness of the Re- 
port of Committee on Grand Master's Address. The current 
Chairman explained "The traditional significance of the Report . . . 
for the past ten years and more has been the unexcelled eloquence 
of Past Grand Master Milton S. Czatt. His incisive observations, 
evaluations and composition have been looked forward to by 
the members of this Body." The new Chairman said that he would 
not attempt to try to use the same mould. Nevertheless, the Com- 
mittee once again presented a most comprehensive statement. 

Ever since 1947, or earlier, the uses and costs of mainten- 
ance and repair of the Masonic Temple have caused grave concern. 
The Grand Master proposed an investigation of the building with 
a view to converting the fifth floor into a lodge room and stage 
to handle 500 people. A new hotel and parking garage in an 
urban renewal plan prompted the proposal. 

The Grand Lecturer described one activity not noticed before 
by this Reviewer. For several years the D.D.G.M.s have divided 
themselves into two degree teams, one in the Northern and one 
in the Southern part of the State. They work in lodges to which 
they have been invited. The effort appears to have been well 
worthwhile. 

The Grand Secretary again listed long-time Lodge Secretaries. 
One has served 46 years. During the year ill-health forced a 50- 
year Secretary to retire. Here must be a record.

From time to time Proceedings of various Grand Lodges 
record requests from constituent lodges to erect signs on roads 
leading into towns listing times and places of lodge meetings. If 
memory serves correctly, such requests have usually been denied. 
The following paragraph in the Report of the Board of General 
Purposes, therefore, is of some interest. 

"A Lodge wishing to erect a Sign on Notice Boards at the 
entrances to a Town or City listing dates of meetings, are re- 
quested to submit for the approval of the Grand Secretary, r 
design of the proposed Sign, incorporating the symbol of the 
square and compasses in the same proportions as that illustrated

"Why is it that we count our blessings on our fingers and 
tally our miseries on a computer?"' That was the question asked 
by the Grand Master when he described some of the "troubles, 
complaints and errors of the computer system" which the Grand 
Lodge had inherited. The trouble arose because the data proces- 
sing company involved serviced only one fraternal organization, 
the Grand Lodge of Virginia and had not done the research 
required when they took the contract. The Grand Master described 
the solution: 

"The Grand Secretary then contacted several Grand Juris- 
dictions whose records are computerized. The issue of the right 
company to do our work was pinpointed to a company handling 
fraternal organizations exclusively. Upon excellent recommenda- 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

tions from the Grand Lodge of Ohio, the Grand Lodge of Kansas, 
and the Grand Lodge of Missouri, a company in St. Louis, Missouri 
was asked to examine our system, rendering a proposal of their 
program to accommodate our needs." 

This information could prove useful to any Jurisdiction 
contemplating moving into the computer field. The Grand Master 
did add, however, "Like the Grand Lodge of New York whose 
first efforts to computerize were a tremendous flop, I would 
agree . . . that it is too soon to predict that the program will be 
a success." 

"I would prefer to withhold an opinion on the program until 
we have gone full circle, including a roster, with the new data 
processing company. Advancing technology is changing the way 
many businesses and professions operate. The future is wide open. 
The advantages are great. The costs, too. are great."' 

The Grand Master devoted some time to comments on 
public or open installation of officers. Of his 193 dispensations 
issued, almost 60 involved such installations. With 345 lodges, 
the total suggests that just over 17 percent hold open or public 
installations.

In reporting on "Permissions" the Grand Master stated: 

"New 1975 legislation authorizes the Grand Master to grant 
permission for the wearing of Masonic aprons in public parades 
and in attendance at certain public meetings such as school 
awards programs. Approval was given for the several requests 
of this kind. While granting permission. I reminded the Brethren 
of the previous prohibition against such appearances which had 
been based on fears of adverse reaction from hostile or uninformed 
spectators." 

During his official visit to the lodges in Alaska, the Grand

The Grand Master granted a petition for a new Lodge to be 
known as Lodge of Recreation, which was sponsored by the 
Lodge of Sportsmen No. 218, Fremantle. It was the first new 
Lodge to be consecrated in Western Australia since December 13, 
1969. 

The Proceedings for April gave a digest of the Transactions 
of the Tenth Australasian Masonic Conference. Some of the 
decisions reached will require amendments in the various Grand 
Lodge Constitutions. Among the topics covered were: 

1. Recognition of Grand Lodge Rank, held by a brother of 
another Constitution. 

2. Card of Recognition. 

This will be a card produced by the Grand Lodge and 
called the "Grand Lodge's Introduction Card." Lodge 
Secretaries will validate the card. 

8. Version of V.S.L. 

The Board of General Purposes of Western Australia 
confirmed that the King James Version be used. 

10. National Anthem. 

All Grand Lodges agreed that the Queen would be 
recognized when singing the National Anthem. 

The Board of General Purposes has arranged for a sign of 
polished "jarrah" (i.e. a piece of polished Western Australia 
mahogany gum-tree) to be fitted at the Perth Air Terminal 
giving the name, location and telephone number of Grand Lodge. 
It has also arranged with the Fremantle Port Authority for 
the name and telephone number to be recorded at the information

desk, of the Terminal. These arrangements will greatly assist Free- 
masons on tour who are desirous of visiting Lodges during their 
stay in Western Australia. 

The Grand Master attended seven Masonic Balls in six 
months. Concerning these functions he said: "It would seem that 
members of Lodges often fail to appreciate the wonderful financial 
assistance that has been given to our charitable funds in the past 
as a result of the efforts of those committees who have organised 
such functions as the Annual Grand Masonic Ball, the Annual 
South of the River Debutante Ball and of more recent origin 
the Masonic Concerts." 



WEST VIRGINIA — 1976 

1 12th Annual Communication — October 1 1-12. 

Grand Master. 1975-76 — M.W. Bro. B. C. Shannon 
Grand Master, 1976-77 — M.W. Bro. W. F. Hathaway 

Lodges. 160 Membership, 45,196. Loss. 187. 

The Grand Secretary presented his 24th annual report. Only 
nine Brethren have held the office in the 112 year history of the 
Grand Lodge. One jurisdiction with an even more spectacular re- 
cord is our own with eight names in 121 years. Each list shares 
the name Logan. 

Grand Masters in their annual reports or addresses, which 
are universal in all jurisdictions, tend to present the bright side. 
M.W. Bro. Shannon was an exception. While a Reviewer certainly 
must not criticize actions in a sister Jurisdiction he is at liberty 
to comment favourably on actions which, though difficult, are 
done for the good of the Order. 

As the Grand Master said: 

"We have been merrily passing through the years proclaiming 
the good health and well-being of our beloved Fraternity. At the 
same time we have been travelling on a path of self-destruction, 
and will continue to do so unless we get our priorities in the right 
order and do some improving in our way of thinking and doing. 
I am speaking specifically of officer proficiency, responsibility and 
obedience to the Laws of Masonry. We have been tolerating will- 
ful disobedience of our Masonic Laws and deterioration of our 
Masonic ritual for years without making one defensive move to 
combat it." 

The Grand Master determined to deal boldly with the 
problem. He attended one installation and prohibited the install- 
ation of the Master elect who was not proficient. He also issued 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 57 

three edicts removing the Masters elect because at the time of 
their election and installation they were not proficient. Other 
relative actions need not be described here. The Grand Master 
summed up the matter: "It is the responsibility of everv Master 
of every Lodge in this Grand Jurisdiction to make sure' that the 
person elected to be his successor is duly and truly prepared before 
permitting his installation. Failure to do so can cause the 
mdividuals directly involved much mental anguish and the Lodge 
great embarrassment." 



WYOMING — 1976 

102nd Annual Communication — August 9-10. 

Grand Master, 1975-76 — M.W. Bro. R. A. Martens 
Grand Master, 1976-77 — M.W. Bro. C. E. Edwards 

Lodges, 54. Membership, 11,063. Loss, 114. 

In his Report the Grand Master said that he had entered his 
>ear in office with two goals, supported by the Grand Lodge; 
First to operate a fiscally responsible budget and secondly to 
promote and foster good will and fraternal relations among the 
Subordinate Lodges and to encourage greater cooperation with 
appendant bodies. 

He achieved his first aim and left a surplus for his successor, 
the first in six years. The difficult task was made at the expense 
of "The Wyoming Mason," discontinuance of the schools of 
instruction and reduction of the Masonic leadership workshops 
from 11 to 4 meetings. 

The second aim he achieved by accepting all invitations 
from lodges, except one when he had a conflict. As he said "I 
believe that the Grand Master has to keep closer contact with the 
Lodges and bring their ideas into the overall plan of Wyoming 
Masonry." 

The Centennial History of the Grand Lodge was completed 
and distributed. One thousand copies were printed of which 700 
were contracted for in advance. When the volume appeared 
many more were sold leaving a small stock in the hands of 
the Grand Secretary.

ADDRESS BY 
BRO. THE VERY REVEREND A. LORNE MACKAY 

AT THE 
GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

Held in the Canadian Room 

Royal York Hotel, Toronto, Ontario 

JULY 20tli, 1977 

THE GRAND MASTER: I am now going to ask M.W. Bro. 
W. L. Wright to introduce our guest speaker. 

M.W. BRO. W. L. WRIGHT: 

Most Worshipful Grand Master, Distinguished Guests and 
Brethren: It has been said that Prince Edward Island and the other 
Atlantic Provinces have been renowned for exporting potatoes, 
preachers and University Presidents. Our Guest tonight fulfills 
that assertion for although he was born in Prince Edward Island, 
he came West to receive his University education at the University 
of Western Ontario and at the Presbyterian College in Montreal. 
He is one of Canada's leading Churchmen — and has served in 
Vancouver, Montreal and for the past twenty-five years in 
Hamilton, thus our Honoured Guest has followed the admonition 
of Horace Greeley, the great editor of The New York Tribune 
in the pioneering days of North America, who inspired many 
young Americans and Canadians with his cry . . .GO WEST, 
YOUNG MAN — GO WEST. 

This past year our speaker was honoured by his colleagues 
of the Presbyterian Church in Canada by being elected Moderator, 
the highest office and as in his local pastoral domain, he dis- 
charged his duties with effectiveness and with dignity. He is a 
respected Humanitarian and in the City of Hamilton where he 
ministers at Central Church, our speaker has devoted his gifts 
in numerous commendable social projects, not least The United 
Way. He is Chaplain of Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of 
Canada. In Masonry he was initiated in Waverley Lodge No. 82 — 
Montreal and through the years has made a distinct contribution 
to the order. He is a thirty-third degree Mason. At the present 
time he holds the office of Provincial Grand Master of The Royal 
Order of Scotland. He is the worthy recipient of the William 
Mercer Wilson Medal for meritorious service. 

A man of such spiritual, mental and moral scature needs no 
further dilation on his many virtues. In him we salute an out- 



2 APPENDIX ••£•• 

standing Churchman, a worthy citizen, a concerned Mason and a 
personal friend. We welcome Brother The Very Reverend Allan 
Lome MacKay, Bachelor of Arts, Dr. of Laws, Dr. of Divinity, 
as our speaker this evening. How do you receive him — Applause. 

Most Worshipful Grand Master, Officers and Members of 
Grand Lodge, Distinguished Guests and Brethren all: 

It is a great privilege to be invited to speak at the Grand 
Master's Banquet on this 122nd Communication of the Grand 
Lodge of Canada in the Province of Quebec — laughter — 
alright — Province of Ontario. — Sorry Eric — As I look over 
this vast sea of faces, I must say I have not had a congregation 
this large in some time. And this presents me with several serious 
temptations. The first of course is very obvious — I am tempted 
to preach a sermon, but since all of you were in Church last 
Sunday, I am sure I can relieve you of that fear. BUT an even 
greater temptation as I look over this great number is to ask that 
we take up the collection. — Laughter — I have to confess I 
am feeling just a wee bit nervous as I've already demonstrated 
rather fully. I am afraid I am going to be a very great dis- 
appointment to some of you. For one thing, I have been told 
on very high authority that some of you have a pool going on 
how long this speech is going to last. — Laughter — That's bound 
to mean I am going to disappoint some of you, quite a few of 
you I guess, but on the other hand, looking on the positive side, 
I'll have the satisfaction of knowing that I'll have at least one 
satisfied customer at the end. I am tremendously grateful for the 
most gracious introduction given to me by a very dear friend 
throughout the years. He has presented me in a very charming 
way and I appreciate it greatly. As I listened to him, I could 
not help remembering the words of Mark Twain who in a 
similar situation said — "Father would have enjoyed it — 
Mother would have believed it". — Laughter — Then too, listening 
to the introduction with its somewhat exaggerated description of 
my talents, I am nervous as well because I fear your expectations 
may have been raised too high. 

A small boy whose religious education had been somewhat 
neglected was sent to Camp and on Sunday, along with the other 
lads, was taken to Church. As the minister entered with his flow- 
ing resplendent robes and began the service this young lad turned 
to a pal and said "Hey Sam, it that God?" No replied the friend 
"he ain't even a Bishop yet". — Laughter — Well I ain't even 
a Bishop, I'm only a Presbyterian — so don't get your hopes up 
too high. I suppose you know what they say about Presbyterianism 
— it doesn't keep you from doing anything — it only keeps 
you from enjoying it. — Laughter — It's not really true. You 
know we ministers really do have a somewhat interesting life, 
one never knows what's going to happen next, but we can usually 
handle things pretty well though we get a lot of help at times. 
A minister friend of mine whose name is Hazlewood was out 



APPENDIX "B" 3 

golfing one day and as he came to the last hole, which was a 
reasonably short one, he needed an eagle to win, so he put 
everything he had into his swing but unfortunately he hit a 
terrific slice. There was a roar of thunder as the ball sent sailing 
high, wide and handsome, hit a tree, bounced off a fence, 
passed swiftly through a sandtrap, onto the green and finally 
rolled into the hole for an eagle. Gordon looked up at the Heavens 
and said "Thank you, Lord, but I'd rather do it by myself". — 
Laughter 

Mind you. we don't always win. One day a man came to a 
minister and said "I stole this chicken — I wonder if you would 
care to have it?" The minister of course was completely horrified 
and said "you know I can't receive stolen goods, you must return 
it to the person from whom you stole it". BUT said the thief "I 
offered it to him and he refused it". "Well", said the minister, "in 
that case you might as well keep it for yourself . . . And when 
the minister got home that night he found one of his chickens 
missing. — Laughter. 

Mostly, however, we can come up with the right answers. A 
certain minister got a phone call from the Income Tax people 
asking if a certain man had given three thousand dollars to the 
Church as he claimed. The minister replied "I'd rather not say 
just now but if you will call me back tomorrow, I think the answer 
will be yes". — Laughter. 

Of course the story I love best of all when it comes to telling 
stories on ministers, has to do with the experience of my dear 
old friend Archbishop Bill Wright. Years ago he was out calling 
on his parishioners and he came to a certain house and he 
knocked on the door and to his complete surprise he heard a 
lovely, lilting voice saying "Is that you Angel?" Without pause 
Bill said "No, but I'm from the same Department". — Laughter. 

I started to prepare a speech on Masonry, gentlemen, but 
when I read my speech I found it very boring and so I have 
changed the subject. I was reminded of a certain Sunday when a 
close personal friend, one of my elders, handed me a slip of 
paper just a few moments before the Service was about to begin. 
There was a glint of mischief in his eyes and when I read what 
was on the paper I understood why — because this is what was 
printed: An earnest young Preacher, eager to improve himself 
bought a tape recorder and recorded one of his Sunday Services. 
After supper that evening he set the recorder, settled himself in 
an easy chair and he began to listen to the playback. The opening 
prayers, the Scripture reading and the announcements came forth 
just as he would have wished them and then cam.e the Sermon. . . 
When he woke up sometime later the choir was singing the closing 
Hymn. — Laughter. 

Gentlemen, this evening I am going to speak on the subject 
"MAKING THE BEST OF LIFE". I realize fully that I may 



4 APPENDIX "B" 

not measure up to this rather ambitious subject but I do say this, 
that while the speaker may indeed put you to sleep the subject 
shouldn't. In a time of tension and uncertainty and uneasiness 
when we wonder where the world is going, we need very much to 
seek and hopefully to discover how to make the best of our lives. 
I recognize very clearly the dangers of such a subject. Of course 
to speak with conviction on such a subject may sound very 
presumptuous on my part. On the surface at least it might appear 
that I were setting myself up as an expert on the subject. That's 
always dangerous. I remember one of my favorite stories which 
I have told all too frequently but which I can't refrain from 
repeating — of a certain rather brilliant young priest in a 
Roman Catholic Church who on Mother's Day gave an impas- 
sioned and scintillating Sermon on the subject "The Glory, TTie 
Beauty and the Sanctity of Motherhood'' . . . Following the service 
one of life's unclaimed treasures who I think is often unfairly 
described as an Old Maid came gushing up to her friend, Mrs. 
Murphy, and said "Oh, Mrs. Murphy, wasn't that a marvellous 
Sermon? Did you ever hear such eloquence? Were you not 
thrilled to hear good Father O'Malley speak so wonderfully 
about the glory and the beauty and the sanctity of motherhood?" 
And Mrs. Murphy, who was the mother of 14. replied, "Yes. it 
was a most eloquent sermon and very well delivered too, and I 
wish to God I knew as little about the subject as the dear man 
himself ..." — Laughter. 

Mind you, if things keep changing as radically in that Great 
Church as they seem to be — I'm going to have to throw that 
story out. 

No, Brethren, I am not speaking to you this evening from 
the point of view of an expert. I'm rather speaking on the theme 
because it intrigues me. It intrigues me from a personal point of 
view because, like you I want to make the best of life and, like 
you, I am a seeker. I want to find the things that really count, 
the things and the convictions which will enable me to stand steady 
and experience deep within myself an inner and undisturbable 
core of serenity. Life is such a short affair even at its longest 
and at the end of it I'd like to think I made something worthy of 
it in my own life and be able to leave behind a memory kindly 
remembered among men. So the question is really important — 
How can we make the Best of Life? 

/ believe that basically we have to find a realistic and wise 
perspective as we journey through the days and the years of this 
strange pilgrimage we call Life. 

We have to discover, if you will, a philosophy of living 
which will enable us to see clear-eyed all the problems and all the 
wrongs without being overwhelmed by them, while at the same 
time giving our best allegiance to the things which we hold to be 
true and good and noble and doing all this in the contemporary 



APPENDIX "B" 5 

situation. One of the ablest thinkers of our time and one of its 
best critics is a man by the name of Elton Trueblood. Elton 
Trueblood has given this solemn and sobering appraisal of our 
present times. He says this "No man knows what the future holds 
in any particular set of events, but every thoughtful person believes 
that we are destined to live the remainder of our lives in tension 
and turmoil. Whatever the course of History may be in the next 
years, it will not be a course of tranquility. Our modern world 
has developed so much animosity, so much justifiable fear, so 
much open conflict that there is no Peace. We are in the monsoon 
and must weather it out. Instead of pining for calmer days, the 
way of wisdom is to learn to live realistically in such a time of 
strain". That, I hold to be a sober and wise appraisal of our 
present times. 

It is true, of course, that our time has experienced great 
physical changes. Its a brand new world in v/hich v/c are living. 
Scientifically, we have made tremendous strides far beyond the 
wildest dreams of our forefathers. In Technological know-how 
and discovery we have made giant advances. We have such 
possessions, such physical comforts, gadgets and conveniences 
that we recognize and acknowledge without question Galbraith's 
descriptive phrase that this is indeed "the affluent society". Yet, 
at the same time, if we look at things realistically we have to 
acknowledge that seldom, if ever, has there been a time of greater 
restlessness, more inner discontent, more spiritual and moral 
decay, more destructive personality problems, and more devast- 
ating inner confusions and soul destroying tensions than in our 
present day. I can tell you, from the point of view of a working 
minister dealing with human beings, this is not an exaggeration. 

TTiis is not an easy age for those who look at life with any 
degree of sensitivity. The breakdown of time-tested standards, the 
growth and devilish ingenuity of organized crime, the increase 
of mindless violence, the creeping slime of vile pornography, the 
influences which pollute the mind and pollute the soul, to say 
nothing of the pollution of the environment and the frightening 
possibility of Nuclear holocaust, all militate against any easy 
peace of mind, and indeed, if we are not careful, can generate 
a kind of inner listlessness which stultifies hope, breeds despair, 
blinds vision and generates a sick acceptance which in the end, 
destroys the soul. It is not an easy day and we are all tempted 
at times to take the cash and let the credit go. nor heed the 
rumble of a distant drum — in short, to settle for less than the best 
and by so doing become part of the problem ourselves instead of 
part of the solution. BY ALL MEANS, I repeat, we must be very 
realistic in our appraisal of our contemporary society. We must 
not in any way try to deceive ourselves about the very real 
seriousness of the evils and wrongs which are present in our 
world. BUT at the same time, we must not permit these evils 
to overwhelm us and lead us into despair and futility. WE 
MUST, rather, see all things in perspective and tackle the problems 
with courage and determination and with HOPE. In short, we 



6 APPENDIX "B" 

must see things in their totality and that's the only way we will 
be able to make the best of life. 

Let me tell you a story which to me is a parable for each of 
us in living. Between the years 1777 and 1832 a man with the 
ordinary name of John Jones kept a diary which was published a 
few years ago. He began his diary when he was quite young 
leaving England to go to Jamaica as tutor to the children of a 
Government Official. During the two years he spent in Jamaica 
his diary is filled with countless complaints. He didn't like 
Jamaica, he didn't like the climate, he didn't like the people, 
he didn't like the food, he didn't like this — he didn't like that — 
he wrote that he would rather live on bread and water in 
England than on banquets in Jamaica. The day he was leaving 
the Island he said he was happy to see it sink out of sight 
on the horizon and that he hoped he would never set eyes on it 
again. He continued his diary in the ensuing years and a few years 
later one comes across a most astonishing entry. Astonishing in 
the light of all he had complained about while he was in Jamaica. 
He wrote in his diary that he would always look back upon the 
years he had spent in Jamaica as being the happiest years of his 
life. This little story is a parable for all of us in the age in which 
we live. 

We complain about things as they are and there are, un- 
doubtedly, as we have seen, many things about which to com- 
plain. In this age of transition, this age of anxiety, this age of 
frustration, the problems loom large in our thinking and in our 
impatience we wish we could see the end of such a time as this. 
AND yet, brethren, in the good providence of God. it may be that 
years from now, like the man from Jamaica, many may look 
back upon these present days as being the most exciting and stim- 
ulating and interesting days of our lives. 

It is said of man that he looks before and pines for what 
is not. But in our looking before and after and in our pining for 
what is not, we often miss the opportunities and the blessings 
of those things which are with us in the HERE AND NOW. We 
need the exercise of a wise perspective which will enable us to see 
and to buttress the good things which we all too frequently permit 
to be blurred or overlooked in our struggles with the problems, 
the tensions, and the frustrations of our day. BECAUSE MAKE 
NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT — the good things are present even 
yet. As an old Prayer of the Church has it, we are the steady 
recipients of "unnumbered mercies, often unnoticed, often un- 
improved and ever undeserved." We may often think there are 
nothing but problems, nothing but tensions, nothing but frustra- 
tions — but he who has real perspective — knows better. 

You may recall a passage from a book written a good 
number of years ago entitled LAVENGRO by GEORGE 
BORROW. There is a little bit of conversation recorded in that 
book which I have always found thrilling. It goes like this: 



APPENDIX "B" 7 

Life is sweet Brother, 

Do you think so? 

There's night and day Brother, both sweet things, sun, moon 

and stars. Brother, all sweet things; there is likewise the 

wind on the heath, Life is very sweet, Brother 

In sickness Jasper? 

There is the sun and the stars. Brother! 

In blindness, Jasper? 

There's the wind on the heath, Brother. 

The point is this, I repeat, he who views life in wide perspective 
will not allow his inner life to be victimized and down graded by 
problems, tensions and frustrations. Knowing who he is and 
possessing the ability to set real value on real blessings, he will 
face the problems with a steady nerve, look upon the difficulties 
without panic, and see the frustrations as challenges to find new 
and better methods of action. A person who has the wisdom to 
appraise life in its totality and the perspective to appreciate life's 
true values will not be intimidated by blustering problems of 
fearful conditions however disturbing. 

Moreover, unlike the man from Jamaica, he does not have to 
wait for years to realize a serene happiness, he can experience it 
in the here and now of any tumultuous present, he can MAKE 
THE BEST OF LIFE. 

This wide perspective will enable him to do certain things — 
will enable us to do certain things. 

From this wide perspective we can make the best of life as 
we find a worthy task to which we can devote our lives regardless 
of material gains. 

By that I mean one who gives himself to a task, not prim- 
arily because it gives him material rewards, but because its what 
he wants to do more than anything else in the world. Its the 
finding of a true vocation. I have the feeling that it is at this point 
that we find the clue to much of the dissatisfaction and the sense 
of meaninglessness which impoverishes far too many lives. They 
are working at some task in which they are not the slightest bit 
interested, they have a job maybe but they have missed a calling. 
To be truly involved in a task which produces a sense of real 
satisfaction is to be well on the way to making the most of life. 

Some of you perhaps may think that this is simply the fuzzy 
and impractical thinking of an ivory-tower mentality which is 
too idealistic for words. Believe me this is not the case. Financial 
returns are important — of course they are — not for one moment 
would I deny that; and even in the most satisfying task there are 
times which can only be described as pure drudgery. This too is 
part of the situation but I still insist, that to discover a worthy 
and useful task to which one can give oneself with enthusiasm 



8 APPENDIX "B" 

and zest; to have the confidence of the task one is engaged in 
adds to the sum total of things and part of the creative process 
of the world is to find the secret of making the best of life. As 
Berdyaev once put it. "The soul will ever prepare creativity even 
to happiness." I believe this is true because it is the sense of 
sharing in the creativity of the world which enables one to find 
happiness, to sense the essential worth of human life. That's 
a giant step towards Making the Best of Life. It doesn't have to 
be out in the forefront. Indeed the world at large may not even 
be aware of it, but if we ourselves see our task as part of the 
essential order of things and are prepared to give it our best, then 
with very few exceptions it is possible for all of us to achieve this 
sense of Making the Best of Life. You know it is of some signifi- 
cance to me that the most serene person I have met in many years 
is a man who labours, who is labouring, and has laboured for 
twenty-five years in a difficult and obscure post in Northern 
Nigeria, working in an almost hopeless situation against terrific 
odds. I couldn't stand what he experiences day by day, I couldn't 
stand it for a month. But he is doing what he wants to do. He loves 
his work. As I recall the few days I spent with him there I think 
of him as a man who really is Making the Best of Life. 

Again, from a wide perspective we can Make the Best of 
Life as we truly appreciate and take into account the importance 
of our fellow human beings. 

Reduced to its basic level its the ability to get along with 
other people, to realize our human brotherhood and our human 
interdependence. Isn't that the essence of the world's problem 
today — the need for Nations to learn how to get along in a world 
which has become a neighbourhood? But before it can work on 
a world-wide scale or even on a National scale, (and my how this 
applies to Canada these days), it has to be learned and practised 
on the individual level. That is where it comes home to each one 
of us. 

To Make the Best of Life, we have to keep in mind that 
there are other people besides ourselves, people who also have 
dreams and aspirations and hopes. We have to keep in mind, in 
spite of inherited prejudices, that people who come from a race 
or a culture or a colour or a faith other than our own also have 
much to contribute to the common good and indeed they may 
have more to contribute than we have. 

This will go a long way towards lifting us up from intro- 
spective self-centeredness, out of petty parochialism, even out of 
a narrow nationalism, to see the glorious greatness of our world 
and the waiting possibilities of the Divine Order. The understanding 
and true practice of real brotherhood will go far to enable us to 
Make the Best of Life. 

Once more, from the wide perspective, we can Make the 
Best of Life as we discover that that life cannot he defeated 



APPENDIX "B" 9 

which has a real faith to give depth and meaning and purpose to 
existence. 

It was Maxwell Anderson, I think, who said "the most im- 
portant thing about any person is what he believes and WHY". 
It is important because it is the thing which determines how he 
reacts when life, as it often does, becomes stern and harsh and 
cruel in our personal experience. 

Long years ago Robert Louis Stevenson, whose own life was 
a continuous battle against difficulties and problems greater 
than most of us will ever know, wrote a very beautiful and a 
very great Prayer. It goes like this: 

"Grant us, O Lord, the royalty of inward happiness, 
and the serenity which comes from living close to Thee, 
Daily renew in us the sense of Joy, and let the Eternal 
Spirit of the Father dwell in our souls and bodies, filling 
every corner of our hearts with light and grace; so that, 
bearing about with us the infection of a good courage, we 
may be diffusers of Life and may meet all ills and 
accidents with gallant and high hearted happiness, giving 
Thee thanks always for all things". 

Isn't that beautiful . . ! 

I suppose this is the sort of thing you would expect a 
Preacher to say. But the fact is, I've seen this thing at first hand, 
times without number, and so have you, that human beings 
Make the Best of Life when their lives are so undergirded by 
that strong faith that no matter how rough the road may be, 
or how cruel the circumstances, their lives just simply cannot 
know defeat. 

Making the Best of Life! That surely is our goal. That 
surely should be our seeking. With the wide perspective which 
these things in their totality; by the discovery of a worthy task 
which gives satisfaction and meaning to our existence; through 
the practical exercise of the true principle of brotherhood; and 
drawing upon the inexhaustible reservoirs of a living faith, WE 
can MAKE the Best of Life. 

As I draw to a close, I want to remind all of you in my 
audience tonight, and I think especially YOU, that there are 
two great institutions which constantly teach and remind us of 
these great principles I have been annunciating and which by our 
involvement in these institutions keep us in steady contact with 
these great principles — these are the Church (or as the case 
may be the Synagogue) and Masonry. These minister to and 
influence us in our seeking and in our discovery on how to 
Make the Best of Life. There is no conflict between them. The 
Church by its proclamation of a Sovereign God who has created 



10 APPENDIX "B" 

us to be His children, and which points the way to Salvation; 
and Masonry, though it is not a religion and has never claimed to 
be, by its Ancient Landmarks, its emphasis on brotherhood and 
its stressing of real morality, TOGETHER can lead us to those 
discoveries which enable us to Make the Very Best of Life. That 
is why I am a Churchman. THAT is why I am a Mason. 

So let me close with these words written in the Boston Book 
Magazine, Boston, in the year 1904. They are tremendously 
familiar to all of you and I think they sum up pretty nearly 
everything I have tried to say to you this evening. These are 
the words: 

"He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often 
and loved much, who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the 
respect of intelligent men, and the love of little children; who has 
filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world 
better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect 
poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of 
earth's beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for 
the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was 
an inspiration; whose memory a benediction." 

My Brethren: Make the Best of Life! 

Thank you (Tremendous applause). 

R.W. BRO. R. E. DAVIES: 

Most Worshipful Brother Nancekivell, Distinguished Head 
Table Guests and my Brethren: 

Once again a very delightful opportunity has been afforded 
me. The opportunity of expressing your thanks to a great man, 
a wonderful Mason and an excellent Churchman and I hasten to 
add that this task is NOT taken lightly for to adequately say 
thanks on your behalf is truly a monumental challenge. 

Brother Very Reverend A. Lome MacKay, on Monday 
morning our Grand Master suggested that this banquet had a 
succession of fine speakers and that he was sure that you would 
uphold and enhance this reputation. Tonight \ou have used your 
God-given talents to do just that. No, our expectations were not 
raised too high for you have not only challenged us but assisted 
us to MAKE THE BEST OF OUR LIVES. The rapt attention and 
tremendous applause which your brethren gave to you must 
indicate their appreciation and now I merely add on their behalf 
a very genuine and sincere THANK YOU. — Applause.
