A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF OUR 
GRAND MASTER 



Robert Edwin Davies was born in Mount Forest, 
Ontario, October 5, 1931. Here he received his elementary 
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 extracurricular activities 
as President of the student council and quarterback of the 
football team attest to his leadership ability even at this ear- 
ly age. 

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

In 1954 he married Annabelle Christie of Hopeville 
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. Alban's 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 Com- 
mittee on Fraternal Dead in 1971 and 1972, he was then ap- 
pointed for 1973 and 1974 Chairman of Benevolence, a 
committee with which he had been closely associated during 
his entire tenure as a member of the Board of General Pur- 
poses. 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 
Sovereign 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.

GRAND MASTERS 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: 

"I among all men am most richly Blessed" 

These words penned by an unknown author ring loud and 
clear this morning as I begin my address. The Most High 
has blessed your Grand Master by giving to me the strength 
and wisdom required to serve this Jurisdiction. The strength 
necessary to cope with the physical demands of the office of 
Grand Master is only surpassed by the wisdom necessary to 
administer the affairs which demand all the talents available 
to any Grand Master. 

Before you this morning stands a very humble and 
thankful Grand Master: humble when I consider the many 
blessings that have been mine to enjoy and indeed profound- 
ly thankful to Almighty God for his Divine guidance. 



WELCOME 

Welcome to the 123rd Annual Communication of the 
Most Worshipful Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada in 
the Province of Ontario. To those who are attending for the 
first time, I extend a particular welcome. Some of our 
guests have journeyed great distances to be here. I or my 
representative have received the gracious hospitality of 
many of our distinguished guests and now it is our pleasure 
to reciprocate. 

I trust that our guests will enjoy their visit to this 
Jurisdiction and that they may safely return to their homes, 
enriched by the time spent with their Brethren here in our 
Grand Lodge. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 37 

NECROLOGY 

Several great servants of the Craft have been lost dur- 
ing the past year. This loss is felt by all and our prayers and 
thoughts are with their loved ones in their time of sorrow. 

MORTIMER CLEEVE HOOPER 

Most Worshipful Brother M. C. Hooper, our Grand 
Treasurer was attending the opening session of the Annual 
Communication of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario on July 20, 1977. when he collapsed and 
later passed away in hospital on July 22. 1977. Masonry lost 
a most respected Brother and Canada a most distinguished 
citizen. 

Initiated into University Lodge. No. 496. G.R.C.. at 
Toronto, in May 1923; he was elected Worshipful Master in 
1940. He served as District Deputy Grand Master of 
Toronto District "D" in 1951-52 and was elected to the 
Board of General Purposes in 1957. 1961 saw him appointed 
Chairman of the Committee on Grievances and Appeals 
and in 1968 he was appointed Grand Treasurer, an office he 
held until his sudden demise. His distinctions were many 
and merited. This Grand Lodge conferred on him its highest 
honour, Past Grand Master (Hon.). 

He was a past Thrice Puissant Grand Master of 
Toronto Lodge of Perfection, a member of Toronto 
Chapter Sovereign Rose Croix, Moore Sovereign Con- 
sistory, a past active member of Supreme Council of the 
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite and a member of the 
Royal Order of Scotland. 

His civic interests were many and varied. Always a 
man of courage and vision, his talents were freely given for 
the benefit of his fellow man. 

M. C. Hooper was a member of Blythwood Road Bap- 
tist Church, Toronto, and his record of service includes, 
among other things, Chairman of the Ministerial Superan- 
nuation Board and for the past 26 years Hon. Solicitor 
General of the Canadian Baptist Foreign Mission Board. 



38 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Most Worshipful Brother Hooper was truly a giant 
among men and of him it could be said, "This world is a bet- 
ter place because he passed this way." 

WILFRID NASMITH PATERSON 

Past Grand Senior Deacon and present at our recent 
Communications as the Grand Secretary General of the An- 
cient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Canada; a man of quiet 
gentle characteristics who touched the lives of many people, 
Bro. Paterson passed away suddenly on September 13, 
1977, after a life of devotion to his church, his family and his 
beloved Craft. 

CONRAD HAHN 

Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Connecticut 
and a frequent visitor to this Grand Lodge as the Executive 
Secretary of the Masonic Service Association, Bro. Hahn 
passed away suddenly on December 15, 1977. Most Wor. 
Bro. Hahn was a walking encyclopedia of Masonic 
knowledge, a Masonic orater of great renown and one 
whose sound friendly counsel will be sadly missed by all. 

PAST RANK 

(1) V.W. Bro. L. Keith Poss of Scotland Lodge, No. 193, 
was appointed Grand Steward on July 21, 1977. He pas- 
sed away on February 13, 1978. 1 recommend past rank 
be confirmed posthumously. 

(2) As a result of an amendment to the Bylaws Wor. Bro. 
Clayton Boyd of Otisippi Lodge, No. 719, served only 
10 months as Worshipful Master, from December 1976 
to September 1977 inclusive. He served the lodge with 
distinction and I have pleasure in recommending he be 
granted rank of Past Master. 

(3) Because of a change in Bylaws Wor. Bro. Jack Cumm- 
ing of Aldworth Lodge, No. 235, served as Worshipful 
Master for only 10 months. He has served the lodge 
faithfully and I recommend he be granted rank of Past 
Master. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 39 

(4) Wor. Bro. Neil McGowan of Temple Lodge, No. 597, 
because of illness was unable to be installed in 
December 1976, but was installed in January 1977. He 
served the office with great zeal, and I recommend he be 
granted rank of Past Master. 

APPOINTMENT 

Upon the death of M.W. Bro. M. C. Hooper it became 
incumbent upon me as Grand Master to appoint a successor 
as Grand Treasurer. I appointed M.W. Bro. J. N. Allan to 
that office on November 9, 1977, and ask for approval of 
the Brethren. 

NEW LODGES INSTITUTED 

(1) Heritage Lodge, U.D., Guelph, Ontario, instituted on 
September 21, 1977, by R.W. Bro. C. F. Grimwood, 
District Deputy Grand Master of Waterloo District. 

(2) Otto Klotz Lodge, U.D., Cambridge, Ontario, in- 
stituted on October 31, 1977, by R.W. Bro. C. F. 
Grimwood, District Deputy Grand Master of Waterloo 
District. 

LODGE BUILDINGS DEDICATED 

On Monday, October 3, 1977, I was especially pleased 
to return to Cobourg and dedicate the new Masonic Temple 
of St. John's Lodge, No. 17. Congratulations to the 
Brethren for a job well done! They are now in possession of 
a beautiful Masonic home and I wish for the Worshipful 
Master, Officers and members of St. John's Lodge, No. 17, 
a long and happy future in their new Masonic Temple. 

MASONIC DIVINE SERVICES 

It was my privilege to attend and to take part in several 
Divine Services during the past year. Our Grand Chaplain, 
R.W. Bro. Rev. Eric Sisel, is to be commended for the 
leadership he has given in this field. Not only has he guided 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

a fine group of District Chaplains but as you will hear in his 
report, he has personally conducted many Divine Services 
himself. 

I heartily commend R.W. Bro. Eric Sisel and these 
dedicated Chaplains for their endeavours in this most im- 
portant facet of our Craft. 

How good it is to find our Brethren renewing the cove- 
nant of our forefathers and participating as a lodge in 
Divine Worship. 

SPECIAL EVENTS 

This past year has provided a storehouse of memories, 
some of which I would share with you now. 

Early in the fall I was privileged to address the 
Supreme Council dinner on the occasion of the annual 
meeting of the Supreme Council of the Ancient and Ac- 
cepted Scottish Rite of the Dominion of Canada and during 
the same session to be coroneted Honorary Inspector 
General. 

The enjoyment of sharing an evening with our Lieute- 
nant Governor of Ontario, Her Honour Mrs. Pauline 
McGibbon, at the Oshawa Scottish Rite Club banquet and 
to be received a few days later by my Mother Lodge, St. 
Alban's No. 200, at a Reception attended by over 400 
Masons, shall not soon be forgotten. 

The great privilege of representing you in many sister 
jurisdictions and especially in Williamsburg, Virginia, as the 
Grand Lodge of Virginia celebrated 200 years of Masonry 
in the old Dominion is a vivid and lasting memory. 

The opportunity to respond to addresses of welcome in 
Jurisdictions stretching the length and breadth of this 
country and as far south as Florida has been afforded your 
Grand Master on numerous occasions. 

The thrilling experience of presenting my friend and 
brother, M.W. Bro. John A. Irvine, to the Conference of 
Grand Masters of North America held at Washington, D. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 41 

C, in February, on the occasion of his election as President 
of the Conference of Grand Secretaries of North America 
must rank high on my list of memories. 

The challenge of addressing the spring reunion 
luncheon of Moore Sovereign Consistory in May and a 
week later to receive the John Beardsley Medal from the 
Grand Lodge of New Brunswick, as I addressed their An- 
nual Communication, are events still fresh in my mind. 

The enjoyment one receives as he meets and greets 
Masons from five separate continents is second only to 
memories of the many Receptions, Divine Services, social 
functions, meetings and visitations enjoyed right here in On- 
tario.

tending the Grand Communication of many other Grand

sions, I have been represented by other members of the 
Grand East. Each of us has received gracious hospitality 
from our hosts and at all times the utmost respect has been 
shown the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of On- 
tario. This respect is indicative of the outstanding calibre of 
my predecessors in this office and I am ever conscious of the 
challenge that is mine to uphold the position held by this

Master of the Grand Lodge of Ohio, is to be our banquet 
speaker. Those of us who were privileged to hear his keynote 
address in Washington, at the Conference of Grand Masters 
of North America, unanimously agreed M.W. Bro. Rasor 
was the one orator to uphold and enhance the image of this 
great banquet. 

PAST GRAND MASTERS 

Many decisions and actions taken by a Grand Master 
requires the guidance and wisdom of those Brethren who 
have graced the Grand East before him. My gratitude is ex- 
tended to the Past Grand Masters who were so helpful in so 
many ways to this Grand Master. A special thank you to 
our efficient Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. John A. Irvine; 
the Custodian of the Work, M.W. Bro. Wm. K. Bailey; and 
the President of the Board of General Purposes and Deputy 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. N. R. Richards, for their untiring 
efforts and assistance. 



4K GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNIC \TION 

DISTRICT DEPUTY GRAND MASTERS 

This group I single out for special mention for theirs is 
a special role of great importance, they being the Grand 
Master's personal representative in each District. Much of 
the pride we take in our work can be attributed directly to 
the performance of the District Deputy Grand Master in the 
District. I look with deep approval on the men who have 
served this Grand Lodge as my representative during the 
past year. I recognize their place in this Jurisdiction and I 
thank them individually and collectively for their service to 
the Craft. 

GRAND LODGE OFFICERS AND 
MEMBERS OF BOARD OF GENERAL PURPOSES 

We owe a debt of gratitude to those officers to whom 
was entrusted the task of leadership. These talented and 
dedicated Brethren have served your Grand Lodge this year 
with distinction and in an outstanding manner. Participa- 
tion in the fall meetings of the Board of General Purposes as 
well as other official functions, including Receptions to your 
Grand Master, has been most encouraging. Your Grand 
Lodge Officers have given great service to the Craft. Their 
energy and work have meant much to this Jurisdiction and 
to each of them I extend my sincere appreciation. 

COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC RELATIONS 

The Chairman of this Committee, R.W. Bro. Thomas 
L. Wilson, being a modest man, chooses not to make a 
report each year of his efforts on our behalf. My Brethren I 
want you to know the valued service performed by this 
Committee in our Jurisdiction. 

R.W. Bro. Wilson, upon receipt of the Grand Master's 
itinerary, immediately contacts the appropriate newspaper, 
radio or television station and interviews and stories are ar- 
ranged through his association with the Thompson Com- 
pany and as a former member of the Canadian Press. 
Almost without exception wherever your Grand Master 
goes for a Reception he is greeted by the local press and sub- 
sequent coverage of the event is given. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 49 

After the Annual Communication reports are im- 
mediately filed by this Committee with Canadian Press and 
we now enjoy much improved press coverage. 

R.W. Bro. Wilson, we at Grand Lodge appreciate your 
continuing efforts and extend to you a most sincere thank 
you. 

INSURANCE 

Following an exhaustive survey by V.W. Bro. John 
Millar, and his Committee, to ascertain the advisability of 
entering into a broad insurance agreement with a major 
company in an effort to save expense to the individual 
Lodges, the results of the survey dictated no action be taken 
at this time. 

This survey of all Lodges, together with the negotia- 
tions held with several insurance firms, represented a task of 
great magnitude. This Grand Lodge is indebted to V.W. 
Bro. Millar for the job he has done and on your behalf I ex- 
press a sincere thank you to V.W. Bro. Millar. 

May I remind all Lodges of the necessity to continually 
review their insurance coverage, paying particular attention 
to inflated values and always seeking to maintain adequate 
liability coverage, so essential today. Grand Lodge main- 
tains its own liability coverage but this does not cover in- 
dividual Lodges. Please make certain you have proper 
protection. 

CONCURRENT JURISDICTION 

Since the larger proportion of our membership now 
operate under some form of concurrent jurisdiction, and 
having mentioned this subject in my last message through 
the medium of the Grand Lodge Bulletin and having heard 
no opposition to concurrent jurisdiction, but on the contrary 
continually hearing of applicants seeking membership being 
held up while waiver of jurisdiction is sought and sometimes 
denied for petty reasons, I recommend that as of July 20, 
1978, concurrent jurisdiction be established in all Districts

to apply across the length and breadth of the individual 
District. This recommendation would not alter or change 
extended concurrent jurisdiction now enjoyed by some 
Districts but is in addition to any concurrent jurisdiction 
now in effect and shall be reviewed after a two-year period. 

MASONIC FOUNDATION OF ONTARIO 

The Masonic Foundation of Ontario, under the 
leadership of M.W. Bro. Wm. K. Bailey, is about to embark 
on a program to raise $350,000 by the year 1980, at which 
time this Grand Lodge marks its 125th Anniversary. I 
solicit your serious consideration and assistance to make 
this effort a resounding success. 

125th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION 

The plans are now laid to commemorate this event and 
R.W. Bro. Charles Emmett, the Chairman of this Commit- 
tee, shall shortly be unveiling his program. Again, I solicit 
your support to mark this occasion in a fitting manner. 

OPERATION LIFELINE 

This project, under the direction of Wor. Bro. Paul 
Curry and R.W. Bro. Ronald E. Groshaw, has now been 
brought to a successful conclusion. Over $50,000 was raised 
by the Masons of the seven Toronto Districts and as a result 
the Blood Transfusion Department of the Canadian Red 
Cross Society shall soon put into service a fine new Mobile 
Lab Unit made possible by the generosity of the Masonic 
Fraternity. Congratulations to all for an outstanding job. 

SUSPENSION 

On November 15, 1977, I notified, by registered mail, 
Bro. Robert Hodgins of Palace Lodge, No. 604, Windsor, 
that he was suspended by the Grand Master from the Order 
as of that date for alleged Masonic misconduct. He was 
summonsed on June 9, 1978, to appear before the Commit- 
tee on Grievances and Appeals on Monday, July 17, 1978, 
at 12:30 p.m. in the Nova Scotia Room of the Royal York 
Hotel. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 51 

Palace Lodge, No. 604, have been reprimanded for a 
lack of appropriate action in the manner in which they al- 
lowed this member to live under a cloud of suspicion, rightly 
or wrongly, without being given an opportunity to defend 
himself. I deem the inaction of the lodge to be reprehensible 
and suggest that this be a warning to other lodges who may 
be faced with a like circumstance. A further report will be 
made by the Chairman of the Committee on Grievances and 
Appeals. 

REVISION OF THE CONSTITUTION 

Change is one of the slowest things to be brought about 
in Freemasonry but with the professional expertise available 
in the Craft, change that is so necessary is most assuredly 
being made! 

The Committee, under the able chairmanship of M.W. 
Bro. W. K. Bailey, responsible for the Revision of the Con- 
stitution is to be commended for their untiring efforts in this 
regard. You, my Brethren, are to be commended for the 
close perusal you have given the first revision, and now as 
the Committee will shortly be presenting the new revised 
copy, incorporating your comments. I again ask for your 
co-operation. 

This is your Constitution and it is so vital that it reflect 
your Masonic expertise. Please give the new copy your 
careful perusal and hopefully at this time next year the 
revised copy of the Constitution may be adopted. 

LONG RANGE PLANNING COMMITTEE 

It cannot be denied that materially the world is chang- 
ing at a tremendous pace. Indeed, one must run pell-mell 
just to keep up. The fact that in some aspects we as a Grand 
Lodge appear to be lagging must indicate a need for an in 
depth study. After considerable discussion with members of 
the Grand East and other concerned Masons, your Grand 
Master has requested the Deputy Grand Master. R.W. Bro. 
N. R. Richards, to form a Committee, consisting of a broad 
cross section of our membership. This Committee is asked 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

to study all aspects of our present system of operation and 
report their findings, together with any suggestions, directly 
to the Grand Master. 

USE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES 

On May 15, 1972, a directive was issued by the then 
Grand Master, M.W. Bro. W. K. Bailey. This directive 
made provision for the use of alcoholic beverages, if desired, 
at certain functions. 

My Brethren, I would remind you this directive is still in 
effect and I respectfully request you adhere to it meticulous- 

CONCLUDING REMARKS 

Now, I must draw to a close this the report of my 
stewardship as your Grand Master. It has been a busy but a 
most enjoyable term and I hope that my strength, faith and 
courage may be sufficient for the ensuing year. 

My first term is now history — what of the future of 
this great jurisdiction? I observe a significant number of 
younger men coming into our Order. Let us be mindful of 
their needs and listen as they speak for they are the vehicle 
for growth in the future. Change just for the sake of change 
is not what I advocate. However, change when necessary to 
meet man's ever changing viewpoint is essential to insure 
our future. Robert Browning once said, "To be content with 
laurels won means death." Brethren, we must not err by 
failing to make full use of the younger talent. 

The mobility of society today causes Masons to 
become almost itinerant. It should be of concern to each of 
us to constantly be watching for itinerant Brethren who may 
now be residing in our communities. We ought to seek these 
Brethren out and extend to them the welcome hand of 
Brotherhood and invite them to establish a new Masonic 
home in our midst if possible. 

I would hope we would become evermore conscious of 
our obligation to serve our fellow man by greater com- 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1978 53 

munity involvement. When assistance is needed, be it com- 
munity appeals, church support, or participation in any 
worthwhile project, individual Masons should lead the way: 
remember Masonry is judged by your actions in the realm 
of your everyday life. 

During my visitations to sister Jurisdictions, I have 
witnessed several rededication ceremonies. These are being 
performed at the local Craft level, and at Grand Lodge level 
as well. How meaningful it is to see hundreds of Masons on 
bended knee, giving thanks to Almighty God as they 
rededicate themselves to the principles of Freemasonry. We 
here in Ontario would do well to take a new look at this 
magnificent system of morality that is ours to enjoy and 
then to rededicate ourselves to the way of life laid down by 
God for man. If we do this the words spoken by the wise and 
venerable Roscoe Pound will take on a new dimension: a 
dimension of great meaning. 

"Freemasonry has more to offer the 20th cen- 
tury than the 20th century has to offer 
Freemasonry." 

My prayer as your Grand Master during the past year 
has been that I might motivate Masons to fully appreciate 
the great Masonic heritage which we enjoy and then in turn 
to shoulder their parallel responsibility to mankind. Today 
as I mark the mid point in my term as your Grand Master, I 
am even more convinced that "Freemasonry has much to 
offer the 20th century." Yes, "I among all men am most 
richly Blessed." 

Sincerely and fraternally 

R. E. DAVIES, 

Grand Master

APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

At the conclusion of the Address it was moved by 
M.W. Bro. J. N. Allan, seconded by M.W. Bro. B. B. 
Foster and carried: That a committee, composed of all the 
Past Grand Masters present, consider and report to Grand 
Lodge on the Grand Master's Address. The motion was put 
by the Deputy Grand Master. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
DECEASED BRETHREN 

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



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 with solemn remembrance that we, the Committee on 
Deceased Brethren, present this report, in order that we may pay 
tribute to those of our Brethren, who have been removed from the 
cares of this life to that Other Grand Lodge. 



To all Brethren, the word deceased has its own personal 
meaning. For one fleeting moment, it remains and portrays to us 
the realities and frailties of life. Therefore, it is with reverence, 
gratitude, and a profound sense of Brotherly Love that we 
remember them at this time. 



Few men were more modest in their lives, and when death 
claimed them, a great light was extinguished, a deep toned bell was 
hushed, mankind indeed lost valued friends in these Masons. To 
such a life as theirs, death was but going 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 55 

'Out of the shadows of sadness. 
Into the sunshine of gladness. 
Into the light of the blest. 
Out of the land very dreary. 
Out of a world of the weary. 
Into the rapture of rest." 



My Brethren, as we move in the realm of this life, may we 
regulate our thoughts and actions so as not to tarnish, mark, or 
engrave on the memory of our departed Brethren. 



I challenge all Masons assembled of our obligation to hold 
high that torch of friendship. Brotherly Love, relief and truth in 
their honour, and, when those shadows of our life deepen 



"That we have served some useful post. 
That here and there we have paid our fare. 
With more than idle words or boast: 
And that we had taken gifts divine. 
To the glory of mankind. 
That we had used them now and then. 
To serve our God and our Fellowmen." 



It has been my privilege, and an honour to have been 
chairman of your Committee on Deceased Brethren. I do ap- 
preciate the kindly assistance afforded by my associates. 



This Committee is also striving, with an earnest desire, that 
the Memorial Services of our Deceased Brethren be ever held with 
reverence and respect. We wish to dispel the remotest tendency of 
creating an air of pageantry. The Brethren should be carefully 
chosen and instructed to commit from memory a portion of the 
service. In other words, be prepared. In our Masonic Funeral, we 
must leave the best image and a quiet reverence must be practiced. 
Oftentimes, this is the only opportunity the bereaved, and other 
people present, will have to observe Masons as a group. 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 



May we also remind you that Masonic Lodges have a respon- 
sibility to our Deceased Brethrens' widows and children. Not only 
have we a duty as to their financial requirements, but it is ours to 
see as to their general well-being. They should be reminded by our 
actions that they have not been forgotten. To those Brethren who 
have intended visiting that certain family, do not procrastinate. 



Such, my Brethren, is the nature of our being. We have the 
privilege to pass through life but once. Any good therefore, we can 
do, let us be doing it now. I know many of our Brethren, so 
departed, practiced that philosophy. 



The greatest service we Masons can render to the memory of 
our Deceased Brethren, is to build a bulwark, not only against 
hatred and bigotry, but also, and much more, against that 
materialistic philosophy which plays such havoc with our world. 



We, as Masons, must remember it is our responsibility to 
create and cultivate a spirit free, friendly and fraternal, a spirit that 
would sweeten the bitterness of the world hate. 



To this, my Brethren, I leave with you in loving memory and 
affection, as we recall now our Deceased Brethren.

Blessed be the Lord! for He has heard 

the voice of my supplications. 
The Lord is my strength and my shield; 
in Him my heart trusts. 

(Psalm 28:6-7) 

Prayer of Invocation: 

Eternal God, our days and years are lived in Thy 
mercy. Make us know how frail we are and how brief our 
time on earth; and lead us by Thy Holy Spirit, so that when 
we have served Thee in our generation, we may be gathered 
into Thy presence, steadfast in faith and loving toward 
neighbors. And to Thee be the power, the glory and the ma- 
jesty forever. 

Amen

Responsive Reading (Psalm 121): 

1. I lift up my eyes to the hills. 

From whence does my help come? 

2. My help comes from the Lord, 

who made heaven and earth. 

3. He will not let your foot be moved: 

He who keeps you will not slumber. 

4. Behold, He who keeps Israel 

will neither slumber nor sleep. 

5. The Lord is your keeper; 

the Lord is your shade on your right hand. 

6. The sun shall not smite you by day, 

nor the moon by night. 

7. The Lord will keep you from all evil; 

He will keep your life. 

8. The Lord will keep your going out and your 

coming in from this time forth and for evermore. 

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

Almighty God, we remember before Thee those 
Brethren who have lived among us, who have directed our 
steps in the way, opened our eyes to the truth, inspired our 
hearts by their witness, and strengthened our wills by their 
devotion. We rejoice in their lives dedicated to Thy service, 
we honor them in their death, and we pray that we may be 
united with them in the glory of the Grand Lodge above.

RECEPTION OF GRAND REPRESENTATIVES

present stood up and were welcomed by the Grand Master. 
Grand Honours were then given under the direction of the 
Grand Director of Ceremonies. 

AUDITOR'S REPORT 

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

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I 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, 1978 and statements of receipts and 
disbursements of the General Fund and combined 
Memorial and Semi-Centennial Fund for the year then 
ended. My examination was made in accordance with 
generally accepted auditing standards and accordingly in- 
cluded such tests and other procedures as I considered 
necessary in the circumstances. 

The securities of the General, Memorial and Semi- 
Centennial Funds as set out in the respective schedules ac- 
companying the Grand Treasurer's Report are held and cer- 
tified to under date of June 15, 1978 by the Canadian 
Imperial Bank of Commerce. 

In my opinion, these Financial Statements present fair- 
ly 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, 1978 and the receipts and disbursements for the 
year then ended in accordance with generally accepted ac- 
counting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of 
the preceding year. 



Yours fraternally 

AW. 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: 

I have the honour to submit the Grand Treasurer's 
report for the year ending April 30, 1978. I should like, first 
of all, to assure you that the finances of Grand Lodge are in 
a sound and satisfactory condition, the result of careful and 
prudent management of our finances by those responsible 
for this important task. 

The full effect of the increase in per capita tax was ap- 
plicable to this financial year and accounted for an increase 
in receipts from dues and fees of $21,674.91. I am also 
pleased to report an increase in income from investments, a 
result of reinvestment of funds derived from securities that 
matured at a higher rate of interest. A further improvement 
in our cash position resulted from the sale of books and 
printed material that had been paid for in the previous year 
and was taken from inventory. 

It is with genuine satisfaction that I am able to inform 
you that expenditures were kept well within budget, thereby 
enabling us to increase the value of our assets to a figure 
slightly in excess of $2 million which was an all time high. 

Our assistance to disabled and needy Brethren was con- 
tinued, as has been support extended to ten worthy 
charitable organizations, details which are set out in the 
financial statement which follows. 

I am indebted to the Grand Secretary and his staff for 
their loyal and generous assistance in facilitating the work 
of the Grand Treasurer, and to the Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Audit and Finance for his wise counsel. 

I wish also to record my appreciation of the financial 
information furnished the Grand Treasurer on a monthly 
basis by our Auditor, Bro. A. W. Parish, F.C.A. and for the 
annual statement which sets out in detail our financial 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 73 

operation for the year. This statement includes schedules of 
the year's receipts and expenditures in the General. 
Memorial, Commutation and Pension Reserve accounts as 
well as lists and valuations of our securities with summaries 
which are comprehensive and informative. These are 
published in the pages that follow and are commended to 
your attention and study. 

Fraternally submitted, 

JAMES N.ALLAN 

Grand Treasurer.

On motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded by

TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 93 

COMMITTEE OF SCRUTINEERS 

The Grand Master appointed R.W. Bro. Robert 
Strachan, Chairman of the Committee of Scrutineers, to 
supervise and count the vote at the election of Grand Lodge 
officers, with power to name the members of the 
Committee. 

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. E. W. 
Nancekivell, and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by M. Wor. Bro. Nancekivell, 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 purpose or function of this committee on Fraternal Rela- 
tions is to consider requests for recognition from other Grand 
Lodges and to recommend to the Grand Master and Grand Lodge 
an affirmative or negative reply, or in some cases a deferral for 
further consideration at a later date. The committee also may 
recommend withdrawal of recognition if circumstances warrant so 
doing. Your Committee Chairman is a member of the Commission 
on Information for Recognition of the Conference of the Grand 
Masters of Masons in North America and therefore the Commit- 
tee recommendations reflect in many instances the deliberations 
and decisions of that Commission which exists in an advisory 
capacity to the Conference's constituent Grand Lodges. 



94 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

We have at hand several requests for recognition, some of re- 
cent date, some that have been held over for several years. 

Your Committee recommends extending recognition to the 
Grand Lodge of the Dominican Republic. It also recommends 
recognition of the following State Grand Lodges of Brazil, each of 
which is regular in the Masonic sense of the word, and worthy of 
recognition: 

The Grand Lodge do Estado do Espirito Santo 

The Grand Lodge of Pernambuco 

The Grand Lodge of Parana 

The Grand Lodge of Rio Grande do Norte 

The Grand Lodge do Estado de Goias 

We also have a request for recognition from the Grand Orient 
of Brazil. The Commission has written extensively in the past on 
Masonry in Brazil and particularly the problems between the State 
Grand Lodges of Brazil and the Grand Orient. There exists a docu- 
ment entitled "A Treaty of Fraternal Collaboration and Mutual 
Recognition" between the Grand Lodge of Guanabara, Brazil, and 
the Grand Orient of Brazil dated November 14th, 1977. However, 
we received copies of a letter from the Grand Secretary of the 
Grand Lodge of Rio Grande do Sul stating that the Grand Lodge 
of Guanabara reconsidered the treaty and declared it void and a 
letter from the Secretary General of the Confederation of Masonic 
Symbolic Lodges of Brazil confirming the previous letter and 
stating that "neither formal relations between any State Grand 
Lodge and the Grand Orient nor any study toward the establish- 
ment of those relations are under existence right now in Brazil" 
because of irregular procedures in the Lodges of the Grand Orient 
all over Brazil. Your Committee recommends therefore that 
recognition of the Grand Orient of Brazil not be granted at this 
time. 

The Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario, on 
the advice of this Committee (then chaired by the late Most Wor. 
Bro. Harry L. Martyn) extended fraternal recognition to the 
Grana Orient of Italy in 1973. Since then there has been sent to the 
Commission on Information for Recognition a great volume of 
written material from bcth Italian and non Italian Masons outlin- 
ing the seriously disruptive situation in the Grand Orient of Italy. 
The Commission recommended to the Grand Lodges of the 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1978 95 

Conference of Grand Masters of Masons in North America in its 
1978 report that recognition be withdrawn from the Grand Orient 
of Italy, and this action we now recommend to the Grand Lodge of 
Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

ERIC W. NANCEKIVELL 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 

M.W. Bro. B. B. Foster presented this Report and read 
the Foreword to the Reviews. The Deputy Grand Master 
then moved, seconded by M.W. Bro. B. B. Foster, that the 
Report be received and adopted; Carried. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
CONSTITUTION AND LAWS 

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

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

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The efficiency of Grand Lodge is due in no small part to the 
adherence to the Constitution and it's directives by each individual 
lodge. Through the years these rules on the whole have been 
respected. It is inevitable that at times Grand Lodge may be con- 
fronted with changing conditions when a fresh appraisal must be 
made of the Constitution. 

Under the capable leadership of Most Wor. Bro. W. K. 
Bailey, who has been a tower of strength, and his Committee, cer- 
tain changes have been suggested with the strong recommendation 
that the lodges examine these proposed changes. In due course the 
revised Constitution will be brought before Grand Lodge for 
ratification. 



96 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

That part of the Grand Master's address dealing with the 
Revision of the Constitution, is particularly appropria e for your 
Committee on Constitution and Laws. Please read this paragraph 
thoroughly. 

Your Committee recommends that Grand Lodge identifies 
itself whole-heartedly with the sentiments expressed by the Grand 

Master. 

The subject of Concurrent Jurisdiction has been increasingly a 
matter of importance for the Committee on Constitution and 
Laws. The Grand Master has given a practical directive on the sub- 
ject of Concurrent Jurisdiction. His words bear repeating. 

"Since the larger proportion of our membership now operate 
under some form of Concurrent Jurisdiction, and having men- 
tioned this subject in my last message through the medium of the 
Grand Lodge Bulletin, and having heard no opposition to Concur- 
rent Jurisdiction, but on the contrary continually hearing of appli- 
cants seeking membership being held up while Waiver of Jurisdic- 
tion is sought and sometimes denied for petty reasons, I recom- 
mend that as of July 20th, 1978, Concurrent Jurisdiction be es- 
tablished in all Districts to apply across the length and breadth of 
the individual District. This recommendation would not alter or 
change extended Concurrent Jurisdiction now enjoyed by some 
Districts, but is in addition to any Concurrent Jurisdiction now in 
effect and shall be reviewed after a two-year period". 

Your Committee endorses the above statement and asks for 
the concurrence of Grand Lodge. 

In a time of change, the Constitution and Laws of any institu- 
tion must be carefully and sympathetically scrutinized. The Lodges 
of our Jurisdiction are to be commended for their interest, under- 
standing and support of the proposed changes. 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Committee. 

WILLIAM L. WRIGHT, 

Chairman, Constitution and Laws 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON WARRANTS 

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



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 97 

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: 

It is a pleasure for me to present this report on behalf of the 
Committee on Warrants for the year 1977-78. The Committee 
consists of the following brethren: M.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine. R.W. 
Bros. W. A. Isbister, W. S. McNeil, G. B. Rickard. C. J. Hepburn. 
C. F. Grimwood, I. G. Noble, A. Warnuk, J. C. Piper and J. M. 
Napier. • 

Applications for Warrants have been received from two 
lodges presently working under dispensation. We, your committee, 
have examined the books, records and petitions from the two ap- 
plicants and find everything to be in order. We therefore take great 
pleasure in recommending Warrants be issued to the following: 

Heritage Lodge U.D. Cambridge to be numbered 730 and ad- 
ded to Waterloo District. 

Otto Klotz Lodge U.D. Cambridge to be numbered 731 and 
also added to Waterloo District. 

The Committee would like to offer their congratulations and 
best wishes to the members of these new lodges. Special mention 
must be made of the Secretaries of these two lodges, the impor- 
tance of keeping accurate minutes and ledgers is very important 
when applying for a Warrant. We offer our thanks to these two 
brethren for their fine efforts on behalf of their lodges. 

We would also like to echo the suggestions of former commit- 
tees in reminding the lodges of the importance of keeping records, 
minute books, Tyler's registers etc. in fire proof receptacles. 

Your Committee would like to suggest to the incoming 
D.D.G.M.s to check their districts and determine if there has been 
any large scale movement of people into the areas. If there has 
been maybe we have a number of unaffiliated Masons who are not 
attending lodge on a regular basis. One such spot in the western 
part of the province is in the Douglas Point Area. Although we 
have Northern Light Lodge No. 93 at Kincardine and Bruce Lodge 
No. 341 at Tiverton both in North Huron District close to Douglas 
Point, maybe thought should be given to surveying the situation to 
determine if there is need of starting a new lodge in this area. How 
many other parts of the province are faced with a similar situation? 



98 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

In closing, your committee would like to again wish our two 
new lodges the best for 1978 and may you grow and prosper in the 
future. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

H. CAMERON STEELE, 

Chairman

We hasten to point out that the total costs of the items re- 
quired for the year's operation, exceeded the cost of corresponding 
items for the year 1976-7, by $6,592.71. This sharp increase is the 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 99 

result of inflation in the market place generally, and affects the 
financial structure of our fraternity the same as in any business 
operation. A goodly portion of the first edition Cost of Printing 
"Meeting the Challenge" in 1976-7 has been recovered, and is 
reflected in Receipts for last year and by the sale of 1260 copies 
during this year. 

It isn't possible to report total receipts recovered from resale 
of supplies by this Committee this year, as the information 
provided by the Grand Secretary's office was submitted prior to 
the close of the fiscal year, April 30th, 1978. However, such 
receipts will be recorded in the Grand Treasurer's report or the 
Auditor's statement under "Printing For Resale". 

This is the first year extra copies of the Proceedings were 
made available for resale to anyone other than those on the ap- 
proved mailing list, at $5.00 each. While only a limited number 
were purchased, it is a start, the trend will no doubt accelerate in 
succeeding years, the revenue from which will assist somewhat in 
offsetting overall increased printing costs. 

The inventory of Books for resale as of April 30th. 1978 is as 
follows: 

The Work 7700 

Meeting the Challenge 7740 

The First Grand Master 2236 

Beyond the Pillars 3000 

Again your Committee solicits the support of Grand Lodge 
and Lodge Officers to encourage the sale of the three aforemen- 
tioned publications. We need a steady increase in sales and believe 
that with effort a much wider distribution is possible. These excel- 
lent books should be in the hands of younger members, as they af- 
ford an insight into the history and tenets of our Order. 

It is obvious in to-day's troubled world that our confusions 
arise through a loss of a sense of beginnings. We have no 
theological sense, no feeling of coming from somewhere, and going 
somewhere. Everything is present and chaotic and overwhelming. 
Like religion, Masonry affords an assurance of order and progress 
and growth, a dimension to understanding much needed in our 
time. Your Committee believes that these books now available to 
our Craft provide a reading source invaluable to a better under- 
standing and deeper appreciation of the lifetime commitment to 
values founded on Masonic teachings. 



100 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

We would like to express our thanks to the Grand Secretary, 
Most Wor. Bro. J. A. Irvine and his dedicated staff for their co- 
operation, efficiency and dispatch in having available adequate 
supplies of quality printed supplies to meet the demands of the 
Grand Lodge office, the committee of Grand Lodge, and Con- 
stituent Lodges throughout the year. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

HOWARD O. POLK, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
MASONIC EDUCATION 

This Report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. E. 
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 Committee on 
Masonic Education, begs leave to report as follows: 

The Committee was composed of M.W. Bros. W. L. Wright, 
J. A. Irvine, W. K. Bailey, and R. W. Bros. N. R. Richards, J. N. 
Smyth, K. M. Boyd, V. E. Young, A. Walton, E. Sisel, A. L. 
Copeland, C. C. Lillico, D. E. Magee, C. A. Sankey, E. C. Steen, 
A. Youngs, and J. J. Talman, with the undersigned as Chairman. 

In 1929 the Grand Master, M.W. Bro. John S. Martin, pen- 
ned the following words. "I am firmly convinced that the time has 
come when something more definite and constructive should be ac- 
complished in the line of Masonic education ... A few rudimen- 
tary lessons in architecture, a few elementary instructions in sym- 
bolism, imperfectly prepared and understood, a few casual hints in 
moral dogma are no longer enough . . ." He recommended the es- 
tablishment of a committee, to investigate the objectives, the sub- 
ject matter, and the administration of Masonic Education. From 
his impulse came in due course your present committee. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1978 101 

Sometimes it seems that Grand Lodge is not very relevant to 
Masons of today. The important work in the Craft is carried out 
by individual brethren at the level of the constituent lodge. It is ut- 
terly impossible for your committee to come into personal contact 
with any more than a few brethren. That is why our chief task has 
always been to distribute information, to provide guidance and in- 
spiration, and to act as a clearing house. 

In one way or another, many brethren are involved in the 
process. The Grand Master, the Deputy Grand Master, and the 
District Deputy Grand Masters have presented innumerable 
provocative and stimulating talks. The Grand Secretary has been a 
regular and dependable tower of strength. The Grand Chaplain has 
been noted for his thoughtful and inspiring addresses. The Library 
Committee, under its Chairman, R. W. Bro. M. J. Damp, con- 
tinues to supervise this great data bank. The Custodian of the 
Work has travelled all over this jurisdiction, giving guidance to the 
District Deputy Grand Masters and holding Lodges of Instruction. 

In recent years Grand Lodge has published a lot of 
educational material: "A Functional Pronouncing Glossary of the 
Work" (1967, re-issued 1970), Beyond the Pillars (1973). the new 
edition of First Grand Master (1974), the new booklets for the in- 
formation of the petitioner and the candidates ( 1 975), and Meeting 
the Challenge (1976). Since 1974, authorized copies of The Work 
have been available for purchase by any Master Mason who has 
proved himself. Annually the Grand Secretary's Office prepares 
current editions of the Book of Constitution and the Proceedings 
of Grand Lodge. For many years R. W. Bro. J. J. Talman has 
abstracted the reports of other jurisdictions for inclusion in the 
Fraternal Reviews; this year the task has been taken over by R. W. 
Bro. C. A. Sankey. M.W. Bro. W. K. Bailey has compiled a useful 
handbook entitled "Guide Lines for Officers in Lodge 
Ceremonies" (1975). These publications are all available. 

A team of contributors is working on a new History of Grand 
Lodge, which is scheduled to appear in 1980. Another committee 
has been deeply involved in a much-needed revision of the Book of 
Constitution; it has invited the assistance of every lodge in the 
province, and has received responses from many. 

This year your Committee, on a trial basis, has begun publica- 
tion of an Education Letter. Four issues were produced. The first 
one went to every District, and the other three (through the 



102 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

courtesy of the District Deputy Grand Masters) were placed in 
every lodge. It is brief and casual, packed with interesting facts and 
informal advice. Among the topics this year were: 

(1) Twelve questions for use in lodge; 

(2) Police interrogation: the "Third Degree;" 

(3) The Question Box; 

(4) Books for Speakers; 

(5) The Ceremony of Installation and Investiture; 

(6) Our Duty to the New Mason: Step by Step; 

(7) The Secret of Masonry; 

(8) The General Charge; 

(9) A Masonic Quiz; 

(10) Draft of the proposed Revision of the B. of C; 

(11) A 400- Year Old Acrostic; 

(12) The Shield of Grand Lodge; 

(13) A Gravestone at Jordan Station; 

(14) A Mason for over 94 Years; 

(15) Corner Stone Laying; 

(16) Active Lodges founded before 1850; 

(17) The Heritage Lodge. 

Many brethren have submitted material, but we want to mention 
those whose suggestions were used this year: M.W. Bros. W. K. 
Bailey, J. A. Irvine; R. W. Bros. L. D. Barrett, F. J. Bruce, A. 
Walton, R. C. Ward; W. Bros. W. H. Allen (St. John's, No. 68), J. 
G. Baker (Mizpah, No. 572), R. J. L. Butler (Ivy, No. 115), M. H. 
Devins (Composite, No. 667), and B. Thurston (Vaughan, No. 54). 
We need your help! Keep the material coming. 

A particularly happy omen was the formation under dispensa- 
tion of The Heritage Lodge, expressly for the purpose of learning 
and teaching about Masonry. There were four regular meetings 
during the year, with the programmes hinting at a broad spectrum 
of possible activities: 

(1) Ceremony of Institution; 

(2) A paper on "The Old Charges" (subsequently published 
in the lodge's Proceedings); 

(3) A lecture, with slides, on the George Washington 
Masonic Memorial; 

(4) A dramatization version of the Ritual of the 1770's. 

The officers and members of this new lodge deserve our thanks, 
especially V.W. Bro. Jacob Pos, who has long laboured to realize 
this dream of his. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1978 103 

The Districts have a better chance than does Grand Lodge to 
reach the individual Mason. The District Deputy Grand Master is 
close to the grassroots; he knows what will appeal to the Masons in 
his area, and he knows what talent is available. Some Districts held 
Workshops. Others experimented with programmes made up of 
several short presentations, to keep the attention of the brethren. 
Question-and-Answer Sessions are increasing in popularity — a 
format which bridges the gulf between a workshop and an old- 
fashioned education night. We heard of sessions devoted to 
Masonic History (Eastern and Muskoka-Parry Sound), to Sym- 
bolism ("The Making of a Mason" in the combined London 
Districts; "The Symbolism of the Three Degrees," Ontario; 
Masonic Regalia, Toronto 6 and 7), and to Lodge Administration 
(the draft revision of the Constitution, Georgian and London East; 
"Governing a Lodge," Bruce and Georgian; "Balloting and 
Boards of Trial," North Huron; "Protocol and Etiquette," Bruce; 
"Committees of Enquiry," Georgian). 

The play's the thing wherein we'll catch the imagination of the 
brethren; and so the Ritual of 1759 was performed in Niagara A, 
and "Masonry on Trial," a script by W. Bro. George Blackie and 
Bro. Brian B. Thurston which has received mention ere now in 
these pages, was put on in Hamilton and Ottawa. 

A good speaker can still kindle an audience. R.W. Bro. Peter 
de Karwin gave a multi-media presentation in Toronto. In May W. 
Bro. Harry Carr, the dean of Masonic teachers, was in Toronto, 
and talked to most of the Districts there about the Transition from 
Operative to Speculative Masonry, and about Evolution of our 
Ritual. 

Becoming a successful Master does not just happen. Several 
Districts have active programmes which are intended to improve 
the chances. Toronto 1 held a series of Wardens' Workshops, and 
Toronto 3 conducted a Deacons' Programme. R.W. Bro. C. John 
Woodburn and W. Bro. William Robinson have continued to ad- 
minister a Speakers' Training Programme, under the direction of 
Bro. Donald McRea at Seneca College. 

Many of the Districts have sent us copies of the information 
that has been distributed to their lodges. Some of it is outstanding, 
and merits particular mention. From Toronto 4, R.W. Bro. Alvin 
W. Hawley has deposited with the Committee copies of nearly 
thirty brief papers prepared by his Education Committee. And 
from Toronto 3, R.W. Bro. Frank J. Bruce has provided a wealth 



104 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

of superb material: two sets of questions and answers by W. Bro. 
Harry Carr, a collection of sixty book reviews prepared by the 
Library Committee and selected by W. Bro. Brian McWhirter, 
and a splendid Deacons' Programme put together by a team under 
the direction of R.W. Bro. David C. Bradley. The last in particular 
looks extremely useful, and we hope to find some way to give it 
wider currency. 

We have one or two observations about Education at the 
District level. It's hard to do much in Northern Ontario, because of 
the distances involved; but in the South, there's no reason why 
every District should not have an active programme. The key to 
the venture is involvement; don't make it a one man show. There 
should be a certain measure of continuity; if your District Super- 
visor has done a good job, and is willing to continue for another 
year, there's no reason to change. 

It is at the lodge level that the most effective work can be 
done. We are often asked where to get speakers for lodges. For a 
start, you can invite members of the Board of General Purposes, 
who are devoted and well-informed Masons. Soon you will be able 
to get further suggestions from The Heritage Lodge. But is it 
necessary to go so far afield? If you tell a brother one fact he 
doesn't know, and he remembers it, and it gives him a new insight, 
you are teaching him. If you have one piece of information that 
your brethren don't, if you can present it to them in an interesting 
way, and if it makes them look at their Masonry in a different 
light, then you are well on the way to becoming a Masonic lecturer. 
And you will improve with practice! For a start, each of you at 
your leisure might read through the reports which appear in this 
year's Preliminary Proceedings, and bring the highlights to the at- 
tention of your lodge. 

What of the future? The Committee on Masonic Education 
exists to serve Masonry, but it's hard to operate in a vacuum. You. 
the brethren whom we serve, are not very good at telling us what 
you want. When we produced Meeting the Challenge, we invited 
your reactions, but the response has been pitiful. Every issue of the 
Education Letter has appealed for your help and guidance, but to 
little avail. Your Committee has some idea of the type of material 
it would like to prepare and distribute: a Speaker's Manual (and 
we don't mean a collection of ready-made talks); Guide lines for 
running a Workshop; further advice on how to memorize The 
Work; a Deacons' Programme similar to that used with such suc- 
cess in Toronto District 3. Would it be useful for groups of lodges 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 105 

to set up classes of instruction for Entered Apprentices, Fellow 
Crafts, and Master Masons? What do you want? We don't know if 
you don't tell us. 

We pay lip-service to a belief in the need for education. Every 
Mason is exhorted "without neglecting the ordinary duties of your 
station to consider yourself called on to make a daily advancement 
in Masonic knowledge." How many of us do so? 

The great William Preston, the Scots journeyman printer who 
wrote so much of the ritual that we still use, said: "When I first had 
the honour to be elected master of a lodge, I thought it my duty to 
inform myself more fully of the general rules of the society; in 
order that I might be able to explain to the brethren under my 
direction, their utility and importance; and officially to enforce a 
due obedience in them." It sounds reasonable, doesn't it? How can 
we hope to be effective rulers in the Craft, how can we employ and 
instruct the brethren in Masonry, if we don't know what the Craft 
is? Yet how many of us as Masters make any effort to learn'.' 

Hear the words of the immortal Carl H. Claudy. "One ihing 
and only one thing a Masonic lodge can give its members which 
they can get nowhere else in the world. That one thing is Masonry 
...The Master whose instruction programme is strictly Masonic 
has to send to the basement for extra chairs for most of his 
meetings." 

In that context, how are we doing? Well, there is lots of 
material available, but sometimes it is not very well used. Again 
and again your Committee has received requests for information; 
we are always glad to help, but often the answer is already 
available in Beyond the Pillars or Meeting the Challenge. There 
are still lodges that are not using the new booklets for the can- 
didates. Is every Worshipful Master giving those brethren who 
wish to assist in The Work an opportunity to prove their 
proficiency? Even the District Education Meetings we visited were 
sometimes frustrating. They were well planned, well attended; but 
if you looked around the room, most of the faces belonged to the 
Old Reliables, the Past Masters and Past Grand Lodge Officers. 
Where were the Master Masons? Where were the new Masons'.' 
Yet these, surely, are the ones whom we must reach. 

Are we doing our job? How many of our brethren know what 
the Craft is, and what it stands for? Let me close with six state- 
ments. Each of them I heard somewhere this year. I shan't tell you 
who said them, or if I agree with them. Listen to them, think about 
them, decide whether they are right or wrong. 



106 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

(1) "Grand Lodge won't let my lodge do anything." 

(2) "Our lodge is very healthy; it had twenty initiations last 
year." 

(3) "If there is such a thing as improper solicitation then 
there must be proper solicitation." 

(4) "Masonry needs to decide what its objectives are." 

(5) "It's time that we, as Masons, took a public stand in 
questions of morality." 

(6) "The most important thing that Masonry does is its 
benevolence." 

My brethren, what do you think? 

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

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS 

This Report was presented by R.W. Bro. P. S. 
MacKenzie, Chairman; 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: 

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

I. ESPANOLA LODGE No. 527 vs. 
BRO. GERALD STANLEY SHEA 

The Proceedings of this Grand Lodge for 1977, p. 130, contain 
the report of Previous Proceedings in this case. 

Bro. Gerald S. Shea, a member of Espanola Lodge, No. 527 
was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to twelve years im- 
prisonment. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 107 

A charge of unmasonic conduct was laid in the Lodge under 
Rule 1 (p) and after trial the Lodge found Bro. Shea guilty of the 
charge as laid and voted for indefinite suspension and recom- 
mended to Grand Lodge that he be expelled. 

This Grand Lodge, at its Annual Communication in 1977 
adopted the report of this Committee and directed that Bro. Shea 
be notified to appear at this Annual Communication to show cause 
why he should not be expelled. He has been so notified but he has 
not appeared. Your Committee now recommends that Bro. Gerald 
Stanley Shea be expelled. 

2. PALACE LODGE No. 604 vs. 
JAMES ROBERT HODGINS. 

At the meeting of this Committee at our last Annual Com- 
munication, it was recommended to the Grand Master that Bro. 
Robert Hodgins be suspended by him. The reason therefore was 
that from information received by your Committee it appeared 
that Bro. Hodgins may have been guilty of an offence under Sec- 
tion 1 (s) of our Rules. Regardless of advice forwarded to Palace 
Lodge recommending that a charge be laid against Bro. Hodgins 
to clear up the persistent reports from members of that Lodge, un- 
fortunately the Lodge did not see fit to proceed. Therefore in con- 
formity with your Committee's recommendation the Grand 
Master suspended Bro. Hodgins as of November 15, 1977, pur- 
suant to Section 53 of the Constitution. Bro. Hodgins was in- 
formed at that time he would have an opportunity to attend this 
meeting of your Committee to make such submissions as he saw fit 
with regard to the said suspension. He has offered and made 
representations to your Committee, both verbally and with 
documentary evidence as selected by him. He then advised your 
Committee that he had nothing further to present. 

After serious lengthy consideration of his submissions, your 
committee voted to confirm the action of the Grand Master and 
now recommends to Grand Lodge that Bro. James Robert 
Hodgins be expelled. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

P. S. MacKENZIE. 

Chairman. 



I OK GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
THE CONDITION OF MASONRY 

This report was presented by V.W. Bro. Norman E. 
Bvrne, 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: 

It is with pleasure that your Committee reports to this Grand 
Lodge on the Condition of Masonry as found and reported on by 
the many dedicated District Deputy Grand Masters during the past 
twelve months in the Province of Ontario. 

Without exception, each representative of our beloved Grand 
Master has had a busy active year as he went about his and other 
Districts under the proud blue banner of Grand Lodge, completing 
his duties and responsibilities so as to enable him to assess in his 
own mind the state of Masonry as he found it. 

Each one has considered this opportunity to become directly 
involved in the workings of our grand jurisdiction and to labour 
tirelessly for the good of the craft, a unique privilege and has ex- 
pressed his gratitude to those who elected him to that high office 
and to our Grand Master for confirming that election. 

Your Committee would be remiss in its duty if, on behalf of us 
all, it did not extend to each District Deputy Grand Master our 
sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks for a job so well done. 

It is not uncommon, in an organization as vast as that of 
Freemasonry in Ontario to discover in some of the reports of the 
District Deputy Grand Masters, expressions of caution and con- 
cern for various facets of masonic life. 

As ever, there is much concern, and in many cases, construc- 
tive and instructive criticism is made with respect to those matters 
which may tend to allow a casual attitude or a complacency to 
creep into our degree work to the specific detriment of candidates 
for our order. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. I97X KW 

Your Committee in its summary, points out that time spent in 
preparation of ritual work with other masons participating, is 
repaid three-fold. 

Firstly, it gives to each brother who has undertaken some part 
of the work, a feeling of satisfaction on completion of a portion of 
the degree which has been well delivered. Excellence, we are told, 
comes from repeated efforts alone and without that labour of love, 
there can be no just reward. 

Secondly, it necessarily involves a brother with his fellow 
man, all bent on achieving one great end to the enlightenment of a 
new candidate and the betterment of all. A chance to work 
together in close harmony and well being, to get to know a brother 
well and to share with him experiences we all find pleasurable. 

Thirdly, and by no means last, it can have nothing but a good 
effect on our candidates. It demonstrates to them that masonry is 
not just words and phrases, movements and demonstration, but in 
fact is a viable example of the good, the just, the right, that our 
beloved fraternity has come to stand for all around the world. He 
listens intently to all he hears for its language delights him. its mes- 
sages inspire him and he begins to learn and feel that he is part of a 
great brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God. 

There has been a marked increase in the opportunities 
available to every mason to broaden his masonic knowledge and 
experience by being exposed to. or participating in the numerous 
programs of masonic education that are offered. Your Committee 
acknowledges the debt that is owed to the many District Chairmen 
of Masonic Education committees under the capable direction of 
R.W. Bro. Wallace McLeod. Chairman of the Grand Lodge Com- 
mittee on Masonic Education. All have promoted, organized and 
encouraged involvement in every brother mason in the workshops, 
lodges of instructions, short talks and visual presentations. There is 
a wealth of information so readily available through the Grand 
Lodge Library and aided by interesting speakers and "grass roots" 
masons who are directed by district committees on Masonic 
Education that the Worshipful Master of every lodge in this 
jurisdiction should, and most have, availed themselves and their 
lodges of wonderful opportunities to increase in masonic 
knowledge and at the same time, present tremendously interesting 
evenings of learning and good fellowship. 

Some Masters have regularly included in the Lodge Summons 
a short article of masonic lore or historical facts so that everv 



110 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUN CATION 

brother need only read his lodge bulletin to learn new facts and un- 
derstand masonic philosophy. 

Waterloo District is to be congratulated in its one day seminar 
entitled "Involvement '78 - Getting More Out of Masonry" where 
the key note speaker was our own Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. 
Jack Irvine. 

The brethren in Toronto District 7 prepared and presented a 
dramatic presentation of a masonic trial. The great amount of 
work and organization required to carry this out was well 
worthwhile as many brethren saw a "real life" example of 
"Masonry on trial". The "trial" was presented to Hamilton 
District "B" as part of their masonic education effort and was very 
well received. Your Committee hopes that the "trial team" will 
continue their efforts in the coming year so that many others will 
have an opportunity to see this enlightening presentation. 

Workshops and seminars have been presented in several dis- 
tricts for junior officers of the lodges. This affords prospective 
Masters an exciting opportunity to understand and respond to the 
responsibilities of office and acquire timely knowledge that will 
serve them well as they advance through the chairs of their lodge in 
the service of the Craft. Your Committee is of the opinion that 
after several years of tireless work, organization and persevering 
promotion, masonic education has become a regular item in each 
lodge's program. 

In these times of rapidly accelerating costs and spiralling 
prices, all of us become acutely aware of "the shrinking dollar". 
Many lodges have heeded past advice and have increased their dues 
and initiation fees to try to keep pace with ever increasing ex- 
penses. Some lodges still maintain an outmoded dues structure and 
your Committee hopes that each lodge will, at least bi-annually, 
review their monetary situation and compare receipts with ex- 
penses to avoid a calamity which might be just around the corner. 
Many lodges have formed Finance Committees and have learned 
the value of a working Committee keeping on top of this painful 
subject. Care must be taken to manage lodge finances as carefully 
as one should manage one's own personal money situation and the 
concept of "two heads are better than one" has proven itself where 
the Finance Committee is an ongoing and working committee. 

On the other hand, restraint and caution are advised that by 
increasing dues we do not work hardship on our older brethren 
who may be living on a fixed income against which are made in- 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1978 II! 

creasing demands. It is suggested that individual cases of extreme 
hardship which could result in a brother applying for a demit 
should be handled on an individual or specific basis by each lodge. 

One of the District Deputy Grand Masters reports contained 
an interesting breakdown of receipts, expenditures profit or loss 
and outstanding dues on an amount per member. 

One can readily compare costs and financing very easily when 
examined on this basis and numbers and dollars when correlated in 
this manner take on an even greater significance. Budgeting can be 
more easily envisioned when the lodge knows that outstanding 
dues and an excess of expenditures over receipts are costing each 
and every member a specific amount. Your Committee encourages 
this manner of reporting and suggests that if every Worshipful 
Master examined his own lodge's records in this way, he might well 
realize dramatically the need for any apparent revisions. 

Some lodges are finding that inadequately financed life 
memberships have become a serious burden. Your Committee 
recommends great caution in establishing life memberships as this 
dues structure, if not properly amortized, will cause severe 
hardships for the brethren in future years. 

Your Committee notes that the efforts of the blood donors 
committee in each district, under the most capable direction of 
R.W. Bro. Rod Connor, Chairman of the Grand Lodge Commit- 
tee on blood donors, is continuing to keep this area of service ever 
before our membership on a continuing basis. Clinics, District 
Trophies, a tour of a Red Cross Bank and special events remind us 
all of our responsibility to our fellow man, where a little bit of our 
time and our life giving blood can mean the difference between life 
and death to a fellow human being. 

One lodge has prepared an information card for each of its 
members, setting out details of name, address, telephone number, 
blood type and frequency of donation which can be kept on file as a 
ready reference for the lodge blood donor Chairman, who in turn, 
in times of emergency, can call on a brother to make a "special" 
donation to help ease a difficult situation. 

Quite a few districts have formed Masonic Foundation com- 
mittees whose task has been to keep this worthy cause before us on 
a regular basis. More will be brought forward by the Masonic 
Foundation special committee on H.E.L.P. at this communication 
which your Committee recommends to all. 



112 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Each year sees all of us grow one year older and for some 
lodges, this past masonic year has proved a milestone in their 
masonic life. Your Committee heartily congratulates those lodges 
who have weathered the storm and still sail on serenely, proud of 
their heritage and ever mindful of years of wonderful memories. 
Your Committee says "Happy Birthday" to King Hiram Lodge 
No 37 on the occasion of its 175th Anniversary and to St. 
George's Lodge No. 42, St. Thomas Lodge No. 44, St. James 
Lodge No. 73 on their 125th Anniversary. 

The following lodges were entitled to emblazen their regalia 
with the glitter of gold on attaining 100 years of service to the 
Craft. We congratulate: 

River Park Lodge No. 356 
Waverley Lodge No. 361 
Dufferin Lodge No. 364 
St. George Lodge No. 367 
Salem Lodge No. 368 
Mimico Lodge No. 369 

In this area of Grand Lodge recognition of service to 
masonry, all District Deputy Grand Masters report the great per- 
sonal pleasure they derive as they present long service medals to 
those distinguished brethren who have served their Craft for 50 and 
60 years. We all owe great respect for their accumulated wisdom 
and your Committee, on your behalf, publicly congratulates each 
and every brother who is now privileged to wear proudly a jewel to 
evidence his devotion to duty over half a century. One District 
Deputy Grand Master has made a personal practice of inviting 
those brethren whom Grand Lodge has so honoured, to sit with 
him in the East as a special mark of affection and respect. 

We are all concerned with some indication that lodge atten- 
dance in some areas has declined, usually accompanied by declin- 
ing membership and a reduction in candidates. There is no easy 
answer for this persistent problem. Each Master and his officers 
must make it their paramount duty to wage war on this insiduous 
enemy. Lack of parking facilities, long flights of stairs, inclement 
weather, great distances, late meetings are some obvious answers 
but your Committee suggests that proper planning, interesting 
lodge programs, prompt and timely termination of meetings, 
prompt dispatch of the business portion of the meeting, involve- 
ment of more "side benchers" in the work of the evening, 
membership phone and transportation committees, increased 
lodge and district visitations, informative materials to stimulate in- 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 113 

terest, easily read and imaginative lodge notices, attention to the 
delivery of good ritual and just plain good hard work by the of- 
ficers can sometimes work wonders and reduce or overcome com- 
placency in those brethren who need encouragement to come to 
lodge. 

Again, your Committee recommends that each lodge examine 
carefully its inventory of young masons who may be potential of- 
ficer material. Giving a new mason duties and responsibilities that 
he is easily able to cope with, assisted by personal guidance and en- 
couragement from more experienced brethren can sometimes un- 
cover hidden talent that will serve the lodge well in the future. We 
must continually look to our younger members for it is from their 
ranks that the masonic leaders of tomorrow will come. 

In every district in our grand jurisdiction, wherever our 
beloved Grand Master has been received by his brethren, the 
District Deputy Grand Masters report enthusiastically that those 
occasions have been the highlight of the year. As he travels far and 
wide in Ontario and to other parts of our great country and to 
lands beyond our borders, he inspires all with his good humour, his 
charm, his vitality and his inspirational messages wherein he points 
out the great advantages that we each have by adhering to the prin- 
ciples and tenets of our great fraternity and makes us all so proud 
that he is our Grand Master for all the world to see. May the Most 
High guide and aid him as he discharges in such a splendid fashion, 
the great responsibilities that are his. 

In closing this report, your Committee expresses its gratitude 
and congratulates all who have worked so tirelessly for the ad- 
vancement of our cause in this past masonic year, the District 
Deputy Grand Masters, the District Secretaries, the District 
Chaplains, and District Committees of Benevolence, Blood 
Donors and Masonic Education and the many other unsung heroes 
without whose encouragement, personal effort and sacrifice and 
great dedication, masonry and this Grand Lodge would not have 
prospered. 

Your Committee finds in the examination of the accumulative 
reports of all District Deputy Grand Masters that the Condition of 
Masonry in this grand jurisdiction is sound, stable and a continu- 
ing influence on the lives of men from all walks of life. There have 
been problems and uncertainties, disappointments and times of 
adversity, but the united efforts of all who stand "Four Square" 
"has overcome all difficulties, raised ignorance from despair and 
established happiness in the paths of science".

Your Committee expresses its appreciation to our Grand 
Secretary for his great help, assistance and many courtesies ex- 
tended to your Committee during the past year. 

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

responsibility for adjudicating the requests for financial assistance. 
Gratitude is extended to the District Deputy Grand Masters and 
members of the Board of General Purposes for making arrange- 
ments for the presentations of the awards in person. May I on your 
behalf express sincere appreciation to T. John Arthur for attending 
so ably to all the correspondence in connection with the acknowl- 
edgements of the contributions to the Fund. 

We present a sampling of the expressions of gratitude from 
college personnel and students. 

"Your program is particularly beneficial to the Community 
Colleges system where there are no significant trust funds donated 
by grateful alumni to fall back on." 

"It came at a most opportune time as it enabled me to con- 
tinue my course in theology without further financial worry." 

"I know the principles upon which the Masonic Order is 
founded, and I pray that I may exemplify those principles in my 
daily life. Please be assured of my prayers for your continuing 
work of helping good men become better." 

Plans are being laid for a financial campaign during the 
forthcoming year to mark the 125th anniversary of Grand Lodge 
in 1980. Each Mason in this Grand jurisdiction will be receiving 



116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

literature outlining the aims and objectives of the campaign. The 
$350,000.00 which we expect will be raised will be directed towards 
aiding the Ontario Deafness Research Foundation which is a new 
Foundation incorporated as of May 1978. PROJECT H. E. L. P. 
(Hearing for Every Living Person) has been adopted as the caption 
for the presentation and publicity for the campaign. You will be 
hearing much about this deserving project during the 
communication and throughout the year from the 700 leaders who 
have agreed to assume leading roles.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, 
seconded by M.W. Bro. B. B. Foster, 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. 

Brethren: 

The Report of the Committee on the Grand Master's address 
is to give recognition to the highlights of his presentation and to 
ask for the approval of Grand Lodge in the recommendations and 
decisions of the Grand Master. The approval of Grand Lodge is 
expressed by the adoption of the report of this committee. 

First, we commend the Grand Master for acknowledging the 
presence and blessing of the Most High as he, the Grand Master, 
has sought Divine Guidance in the discharge of his duties. His 
words possess sincere conviction. They ring true. From the in- 
troduction to the conclusion of the address, the qualities of 
humility and dependence on the Grace of God are predominant. 

In welcoming the members of Grand Lodge to the 123rd An- 
nual Communication he is cognizant of breaks in our ranks 
through death. The sincerity of the Grand Master's tribute to those 
mentioned by name applies to all our brethren who have been cal- 
led to higher service. 

Your committee approves the Grand Master's recommenda- 
tion that Past Rank be granted to those Masters of Lodges, who 
for reasons beyond their control, were unable to serve as Masters 
for a full year. We also approve the appointment of Most Wor. 
Bro. J. N. Allan as Grand Treasurer, who succeeds Most Wor. 



118 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Bro. M. C. Hooper, a distinguished Mason who was held in high 
esteem by all members of the Craft. Most Wor. Bro. Allan brings 
to the office of Grand Treasurer maturity of skill and experience. 

We share with the Grand Master his congratulations of the 
new Masonic Temple of St. John's Lodge No. 17, Cobourg and 
convey to the Worshipful Master, Officers and members warmest 
fraternal felicitations. 

The committee strongly commends the Grand Master in his 
reference to Masonic Divine Services. The witness of large 
numbers of the brethren at Divine Services acknowledging the 
Sovereignty of God in corporate worship is fundamental to true 
masonic belief and practice. 

The list of special events, Lodge Centennials, District Recep- 
tions and Visitations to other Grand Lodges and Masonic Bodies 
in the Grand Master's year of office, is formidable. It is impossible 
to comment on all these undertakings but your committee shares 
with the Grand Master the joy and honour which was his as he 
visited the Oshawa Scottish Rite Club and shared the fellowship of 
Her Majesty's loyal representative The Hon. Pauline McGibbon, 
Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario. 

This Grand Lodge joins the Grand Master in his rightful pride 
in being welcomed by over 400 Masons at the reception given by 
his Mother Lodge, St. Alban's No. 200. The satisfaction in 
presenting Most Wor. Bro. J. A. Irvine our genial Grand Secretary 
to the Conference of Grand Masters of North America in 
Washington on the occasion of the election of Most Wor. Bro. 
Irvine as President of the Conference of Grand Secretaries of 
North America, evokes the warmest congratulations of this entire 
Jurisdiction to one of our most dedicated and outstanding Masons. 

Your committee heartily endorses the sentiments of the 
Grand Master as recognition of 100 years of active service by five 
lodges is listed. We join him in his tribute to those faithful brethren 
who have served as masons for 70 years; as Past Masters for 60 
years; and last but not least to Most Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon and 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Dr. J. R. MacPherson as they celebrate their 50th 
Anniversaries as P. D. D.G.Ms. 

The committee on the Grand Master's address desires to 
acknowledge the tribute paid by him to Past Grand Masters; 
District Deputy Grand Masters; the Grand Lodge Officers and the 
members of the Board of General Purposes. We encourage all 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1978 119 

brethren to read the Grand Master's address carefully and take 
note of those personalities who are giving outstanding leadership to 
Freemasonry. 

Your committee supports the Grand Master in his recommen- 
dation that as of July 20th, 1978, concurrent jurisdiction be es- 
tablished in all districts "to apply across the length and breadth of 
the individual district and shall be reviewed after a two-year 
period". 

The special attention of the brethren is invited to the perusal 
of the following sections: 

(a) The Masonic Foundation of Ontario. 

(b) The 125th Anniversary Celebration. 

(c) Operation Lifeline. 

(d) Revision of the Constitution. 

(e) The formation of a Long Range Planning Committee. 

The revision of the Constitution has been of herculean propor- 
tions. The Chairman, Most Wor. Bro. W. K. Bailey and his com- 
mittee have given a tremendous amount of time and research to 
this venture. Your committee agrees wholeheartedly with the 
Grand Master as he reminds us of the strategic task being under- 
taken by Most Wor. Bro. Bailey; R.W. Bro. Charles Emmett, 
Chairman of the 125th Anniversary Committee; the brethren of 
the seven Toronto Districts in raising over $50,000.00 for Opera- 
tion Lifeline; and to R.W. Bro. N. R. Richards the Deputy Grand 
Master who with others, will consider future guide lines for the 
welfare of the Craft. 

Our Grand Master has exercised justice and prudence in the 
suspension of a masonic brother mentioned in his address. Your 
committee fully approves of the Grand Master's action and recom- 
mends that it be confirmed by Grand Lodge. 

We recommend that Grand Lodge confirm all that the Grand 
Master has reported in his address, of his work during the past 
year. We congratulate him most sincerely and most heartily on the 
contribution he has made within our Grand Jurisdiction and out- 
side its borders. The statesmanlike qualities evinced in the 
character and pronouncements of the Head of the Craft have cal- 
led forth a jubilant loyalty to the Grand Master and to the Frater- 
nity which he has so skillfully guided in his first year of office. 

All honour to him. May the Most High continue to grant 
wisdom and strength to our beloved leader during the coming year.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. M. J. Damp. 
Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by R.W. Bro. Damp, 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: 

I am privileged to present this the 46th report on behalf of the 
Library Committee to the 123rd Annual Communication of Grand 
Lodge. 

Your Committee was composed of M.W. Bro. W. K. Bailey, 
R. W. Bros. J. J. Talman, C. D. MacKenzie, S. A. Browell. P. A. 
Jordan, F. J. Bruce, A. W. Hawley, A. W. Slade, A. J. Anderson, 
W. D. Henderson and C. W. Emmett, all of whom have been most 
dedicated and rendered invaluable service in the matter of promo- 
tion. 

In our humble opinion, the Grand Lodge Library has served 
another year of genuine benefit and usefulness to Craft Masonry 
and we hasten to attribute any success it may have achieved to the 
resourcefulness and untiring efforts of a host of dedicated brethren. 
First and foremost we would recognize our gracious and beloved 
Librarian, Bro. William J. McKee of Runnymede Lodge, No. 619, 
who has served us well these past eleven years. Those who avail 
themselves of the facilities will attest to his skill, his humanity, his 
kindness and forbearance. 

We owe an immense debt of gratitude to V.W. Bro. John 
Petherick and Bro. J. A. Peddie who have made it possible for the 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 121 

Library to be available to the brethren on Wednesdays and Fridays 
during the noon-hour. It is with regret that we record the passing of 
our dear friend, V.W. Bro. Charles S. G.ulston in his tenth year as 
an assistant librarian. He will be sadly missed by so many of us 
who looked upon him as our chosen critic and mentor and for- 
tunate to be nurtured under his wealth of Masonic knowledge for 
our very existence in Freemasonry. 

For the twelve month period ended May 1, 1978, 270 visitors 
signed the register; 82 out-of-town brethren were mailed 1 16 books 
and 148 brethren from the Metropolitan area borrowed 220 books, 
making a grand total of 336 books in circulation, all of which com- 
pares favourably with past years. The recorded lectures and slide 
presentations were loaned on 35 occasions. 

From September 1977 to June last, the Library was open 1 18 
evenings excluding the regular nights when the Librarian was in at- 
tendance, for the convenience of the brethren. This was made pos- 
sible through the generosity of some twenty-two brethren who as- 
sumed the duties of assistant volunteer librarians. It is with much 
pride that we list them by name and lodge herewith: Lome Alter 
(Mount Sinai, No. 522); Gordon Baker (Mizpah, No. 572); Clif- 
ford Baxter (Dentonia, No. 651); Charles Bishop (Coronation, No. 
677); George Blackie (Simcoe, No. 644); Brian Bond (Dentonia. 
No. 651); William Carter (Dentonia, No. 651); Ivan Collymore 
(Robertson, No. 292); Clifford Gazley (Universe, No. 705); Mike 
Hetherington (Acacia, No. 430); Coulson Malloy (Vaughan, No. 
54); Robert Mcllroy (Riverdale, No. 494); Ken MacLachlan 
(Transportation, No. 583); Brian McWhirter (Doric. No. 316); 
David Nicholls (Canada, No. 532); Peter Taylor (Shamrock No. 
533); Paul Thomas (Mount Dennis, No. 599); Adriaan van't Hof 
(Astra, No. 682); Cal Waters (Maple Leaf. No. 600); Charles 
White (Melita, No. 605); Bruce Findlay (Universe, No. 705); and 
William Sawchuk (Orient, No. 339). 

This group represents a cross-section of all ranks in Masonry 
and are deserving of our best thanks for a job well done under try- 
ing circumstances at times. Of course a special mention of Bro. 
Clifford Gazley must be made for it was he who arranged each 
monthly schedule and without his assistance your chairman would 
have floundered hopelessly. 

This arrangement was inaugurated in 1975 and if the number 
of brethren taking advantage of it is any criteria, one has reason to 



122 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

question the necessity of continuing the plan further. We share the 
disappointment of our assistant librarians who, at times, sit out the 
night without seeing a single visitor. 

Despite every effort to publicize the Library, few Masons 
seem to know of its existence at 888 Yonge Street, Toronto, or that 
one can receive a catalogue for the asking and borrow and return 
books postage free. 

One wonders at the minimal use of these facilities. Is it 
because we are among those who honestly believe that our time is 
too important, that we are too occupied with affairs to spend much 
time with our treasury of books? A goodly number of these books 
may be termed as classics, a description that distinguishes them as 
having worn best, yet little do we realize that reading them may be 
the most important thing we could do in life; upon it may depend 
the continued success of our undertakings, upon it certainly rests 
our mental well-being. 

Likewise, good books broaden our horizon, fill our minds, 
enable us to continue growing in knowledge and wisdom. What the 
great writers recorded centuries ago may be the very thing to help 
us find serenity today. 

Reading has been said to be one of the most effective means of 
getting away from the disturbing and unalterable circumstances. 
Intimate association with noble works, be they literary, artistic, 
philosophic, is a promoter of thought, a refuge from almost all the 
miseries of life. 

We are pleased to report the promotional efforts of four dis- 
tricts that have come to our attention recently. R.W. Bro. F. J. 
Bruce, Toronto District 3 and his committee provided each 
member in the district with a membership card entitling him to full 
privileges in the Grand Lodge Library, together with a catalogue 
listing selected books of interest and the audio-visual material 
available. A subsequent mailing suggested several good books 
worth reading and to have in one's own library and where they can 
be purchased. On April 19th last Bro. Bruce's committee held an 
education night in the library with an excellent attendance. 

R.W. Bro. Sydney A. Browell, Toronto District 1, undertook 
to explore the feasibility of establishing small libraries in temples 
in the district in order that suitable material would be more readily 
available to the brethren. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1978 123 

The Chatham District Newsletter under the editorship of R. 
W. Bro. Edsel Steen has been a continuing supporter and promoter 
of the Grand Lodge Library. 



Simpson Lodge, No. 157, Newboro was grateful to receive 
some twelve volumes of Masonic books through the good graces of 
R.W. Bro. Howard O. Polk which augmented their small library. 



It is encouraging to note the practice of lodges to visit the 
library en masse for an educational evening and mention is made 
of Mount Sinai Lodge, No. 522 in particular. We can only hope 
the idea takes wings. 



In September, 1976, an Audio-Visual Sub-Committee was 
formed under the chairmanship of R.W. Bro. Charles W. Emmett. 
Its purpose was to assemble a "Carousel of Masonry in Ontario" 
comprised of two parts, (a) Masonry in Ontario and (b) Masonry 
at Work. The initial venture was to obtain a 35MM slide of every 
Masonic Temple in the jurisdiction and each District Deputy 
Grand Master was requested to arrange to furnish the slides per- 
taining to his district. 



The committee very much regrets having to report that as of 
going to press, only ten districts had completed their assignment 
despite repeated correspondence with the then D.D.G.M.s and 
their two successors. 



One senses that R.W. Bro. Emmett is somewhat disappointed 
with the result to date since it precludes all chances of a preview 
presentation at this Communication. However, we are assured of 
his perseverance to see the project completed. 



Most Worshipful Sir, may the committee conclude this report 
on a note of thanks for our past opportunities and a hope for 
further desire of service to this Grand Lodge: We would derive a 
measure of satisfaction if in the coming year there were many who, 
perhaps, have not been our patrons in the past but who may be 
curious enough to sample our resources in the near future.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
125th ANNIVERSARY 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. C. W. Em- 
mett, and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded 
by R. W. Bro. Emmett, it was received and adopted. 

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

Most Worshipful Sir, and Brethren: 

In presenting this, our first full report, we are pleased to 
advise that, in consultation with R.W. Bro. Richards, the Deputy 
Grand Master, M.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, Grand Secretary, M.W. 
Bro. W. K. Bailey, President of the Masonic Foundation, and 
R.W. Bro. Wallace McLeod, the following plans and projects have 
been approved as points that will specifically identify our 125th 
Anniversary Program. 

1 . The Theme for our Anniversary Celebration will be: 

"Every Member Participation" 

To this end, immediately following this Communication, each 
member of the Board of General Purposes will be contacted and 
requested to act on the Committee on Public Relations. Each 
Member, with the exception of those who are Chairmen of large 
Committees, will be designated a specific responsibility. 

2. It is our plan to promote, through the members of the Board of 
General Purposes, a Program of Suggestions for the Masters & 
Wardens of the several Lodges, utilizing the Masters & 
Wardens Associations, to emphasize the importance of special 
Anniversary projects. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1978 125 

A few examples of the suggestions are as follows: 
The forming of new Lodges. 
To institute special programs in each Lodge for the purpose of 

visiting each demitted and suspended member, with a view 

to renewing their interest and standing in the Lodge. 
To place special emphasis on the Benevolent work of each 

Lodge. 
To plan a special evening for the widows of deceased 

members. 

3. It is the thinking of this Committee that immediately following 
the annual Communication of Grand Lodge in 1979 the An- 
niversary Program will commence. To this end the various 
Lodges and Districts will be encouraged to schedule their 
special projects to start during the latter part of 1979 and the 
first part of 1980. 

4. Arrangements have been made for the holding of a Divine Ser- 
vice Sunday afternoon, July 20, 1979 at 3:00 p.m. at the 
Bandshell on the grounds of the Canadian National Exhibition. 
Accommodation will be provided for the Brethren and their 
families for approximately 10,000. 

5. Traditional Grand Master's Banquet: 

Negotiations are under way for the accommodating of approx- 
imately 3,000 Brethren for this important occasion. 
This Banquet and all meetings, with the exception of the Divine 
Service, will be held in the Royal York Hotel. 

6. Grand Lodge has approved and authorized the creation of a 
Banner bearing the name and crest of the Grand Lodge of 
Canada, in the Province of Ontario. It is proposed this Banner 
will be ready and officially presented to Grand Lodge for the 
opening of our 125th Communication. It is expected that this 
Banner will be present on all similar and important occasions of 
Grand Lodge. 

7. Grand Lodge has also approved, as part of the Anniversary 
Celebration, a Program of raising a Capital Fund of 
$350,000.00, the interest only to be used to expand and diversify 
the work of the Foundation. 

The first project under consideration will be one referred to as 
H. E. L. P. (Hearing for Every Living Person). 
The raising of the $350,000.00 will be in the hands of a special 
Committee set up under the direction of the Foundation Com- 
mittee. 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

8. Grand Lodge has also taken steps to have a new book published 
covering Masonry in Ontario during the past 200 years. This 
important responsibility is in the hands of R.W. Bro. Wallace 
McLeod. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

CHARLES W. EMMETT, 

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. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee charged with the preparation and presenta- 
tion of a reorganized and revised Constitution to the 1978 annual 
meeting of Grand Lodge begs leave to report that we have been un- 
able to complete the prescribed task in the allotted time. We would 
request permission to continue with the assignment during the 
forthcoming year. 

We desire to express appreciation to the 320 lodges which 
responded to our invitation to submit constructive suggestions and 
comments to the draft which was circulated last September. Two 
hundred lodges expressed agreement with the draft Constitution. 
From the remainder there were many useful observations which we 
have been able to incorporate into the reorganized and revised 
Constitution. Valuable suggestions have been received from the 
Committees on Benevolence and Grievances and Appeals. 

The following recommendations are respectfully submitted to 
Grand Lodge for approval: 

1. That a redraft of the Constitution be prepared and presented to 
the lodges and members of the Board of General Purposes on or 
before the 1st day of October, 1978; 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1978 127 

2. That the lodges and members of the Board of General Purposes 
be requested to study the redraft and to submit, if they so desire, 
comments in writing to the Grand Secretary on or before the 1st 
day of February, 1979; and 

3. That the Committee review submissions received, redraft where 
necessary, and submit to the Grand Secretary on or before the 
1st day of April, 1979, a notice of motion to rescind the 1978 
Constitution and to adopt the Constitution as revised and 
redrafted. 

It would naturally follow that redraft as per notice of motion 
would be circulated to the lodges and members of the Board of 
General Purposes about mid April. 

Respectfully submitted,

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

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In recalling the work during the past twelve months of your 
Advisory Committee, it finds that great majority of inquiries 
which it receives, request information, guidance and approval of 
proposed projects. In many there appears to be a paucity not only 
of understanding the raison d'etre of this Committee but also of 



130 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the Regulations approved by Grand Lodge. This means that many 
of the projects submitted for approval do not conform with these 
Regulations and have to be revised and re-submitted. The result is 
much needless work for the Lodge and the Advisory Committee. 

There are several reasons why some Lodges experience disap- 
pointments; for example - existing buildings have been bought 
without the approval of the Advisory Committee, which requires 
complete information regarding details of construction particular- 
ly of the stair enclosures. Moreover, drawings have been prepared 
by those who were unaware of Grand Lodge Regulations. Again, 
we have received some strange letters from District Deputy Grand 
Masters, such as one who wrote that he thought and felt confident 
that the Advisory Committee could bend Grand Lodge Regula- 
tions, while another suggested that, rather than have a delegation 
come to Hamilton to discuss the Lodge's project with the Advisory 
Committee, the Grand Secretary should go to the Lodge and the 
Brethren would discuss the project with him. Furthermore, in some 
cases it would appear that information has been deliberately with- 
held from the Committee. However, in due course, these infrac- 
tions come to light, and, when this Committee insists on these 
omissions and deficiencies being rectified, great is the disappoint- 
ment of the Brethren of the Lodge. 

Your Advisory Committee regrets that it has to inform the 
Brethren of Grand Lodge that it has had, during the past year, and, 
in fact, is still having unfortunate experiences with two Lodges 
because there were some Brethren who felt that the Regulations of 
Grand Lodge could be disregarded with impunity. The Advisory 
Committee regrets, exceedingly, the steps that had to be taken and 
it will have to take, when Lodges feel they do not have to conform 
with Grand Lodge Regulations. The Committee wants it clearly 
understood that it derives no pleasure whatsoever when it has to 
adopt certain measures and procedures to ensure conformity with 
Grand Lodge Regulations. 

Shortly after this Committee's last year's Report was filed in 
Hamilton with the Grand Secretary, he received from R.W. Bro. 
Wm. R. Pellow, District Deputy Grand Master for London East, 
not only the customary, but also, a separate report, entitled Fire 
Prevention and Safety in each Temple in his District. The Right 
Worshipful Brother made a sketch of each Temple, together with a 
detailed report on the Lodge Room, the Ante Room, Banquet 
Room and the other ancillary rooms, pointing out the various 
deficiencies and how they should be rectified. Your Committee 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 131 

would be most pleased if all the D.D.G.M.s would make a similar 
report, in triplicate, for each Temple in his District. One copy he 
should, of course, retain for his own files, the second copy should 
be sent to the Grand Secretary, and the third copy should be given 
to his successor, who should be required to check each Lodge 
building to ascertain whether the deficiencies had been rectified. 
This Committee recommends to Grand Lodge that this procedure 
be approved and adopted by Grand Lodge. 

In reference to the danger from fire, we read in the daily press 
last fall of a fire in Kentucky which took a toll of over 160 lives. 
The cause of the fire was due to careless wiring and overcrowding, 
and, again, the press referred to the Coconut Grove fire in Boston 
in November 1942 where there were 491 fatalities. In the August 
1977 issue of the New Mexico Freemason there was an article en- 
titled "FIRE" which read in part, and I quote: 

"We seem to be somewhat complacent until tragedy 
strikes and we are shocked from our lethargy. Recently an in- 
terested group of Albuquerque Masons offered their services 
to local lodges in checking storage closets or lockers, fire ex- 
tinguishers, hoses, etc. as a fire prevention effort; encouraged 
by the City Fire Department, these Brethren are available for 
suggestions or to do the actual work of cleaning out possible 
fire hazard areas in Lodge Buildings. The Grand Master ap- 
proved this effort and urged all Lodges to select a committee 
to thoroughly check their building." 

— end of quote — 

Shortly after receiving the above extract on fire, I was sur- 
prised, when talking to a Past District Secretary, to learn that he 
never attended the Banquet Hour in a Temple he frequented. His 
reason was that, if there ever were a flash fire in the kitchen, which 
was located at the bottom of the stair enclosure, the Brethren could 
not get out of the Banquet Hall without pushing some tables over 
to the exterior wall, climbing upon the tables and breaking the win- 
dow sash to get to the outside to escape. The Brother went on to 
say not only that he thought that the Temple was built in the fifties, 
before the Advisory Committee was established, but also the local 
Building Inspector had approved the plans at the time the Temple 
was built. 

Last September. I was attending a meeting in the Scottish 
Rite Cathedral in Hamilton, at which there were about 400 
Masons present, including our Grand Master and three of our Past 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Grand Masters. Some time after the meeting started, suddenly 
burning embers began falling from a spot light in close proximity 
to the proscenium arch spanning the high ceiling. Although the 
agenda of that meeting was nearly completed, it was decided to 
evacuate the building and call the Fire Department. Fortunately 
there was a local Fire Department Station about 150 yards away. 
The fire fighters went into the roof space, found the cause of the 
trouble and extinguished the fire. The cause was due to additional 
insulation being installed without providing means for the heat 
generated by the fixture to escape unimpeded into the roof space 
above the insulation. 

In this penultimate paragraph, your Committee is pleased to 
report it has received requests from another eleven Lodges for in- 
formation and assistance; that six delegates came to Hamilton to 
discuss the various aspects of their own particular problems and 
that three more Temples have been occupied and dedicated. 

Finally, it has again been another most rewarding experience 
for me to have had, as formerly, the ready and willing assistance of 
the other two members of the Committee, namely, M.W. Bro. J. 
A. Irvine, Grand Secretary, and M.W. Bro. Ewart G. Dixon, Q.C., 
Grand Secretary Emeritus. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

E. C. HORWOOD, 

Chairman, Advisory Committee 
on Lodge Buildings. 

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 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: 

"Operation Lifeline", a phrase we have heard since 1976, is 
now a reality. This ambitious venture, the inspiration of W. Bro. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1978 133 

Paul Curry, has been solidly backed by the Masons of the Seven 
Toronto Districts and is now a visible entity. 

Originally, this was to be a mobile centre used as a collecting 
point for areas where it was impractical to set up a clinic, but, at 
the request of the Canadian Red Cross, this concept has been 
changed slightly. Because only blood collected at the main depot in 
Toronto could be converted into much needed components, 
"Operation Lifeline" was asked if this unit could be made into a 
mobile laboratory, so that blood acquired in remote locations 
could be immediately processed into components. This is a whole 
new idea and one which has a very high practical value. 

The committee and the Grand Master agreed that this change 
would be acceptable as it would be a way to extend the lifeline of 
Canadians. 

From all of us - congratulations "Operation Lifeline" - on a 
fine job, speedily and effectively done. 

The work of your Blood Donor's Committee is in many 
hands - the District Deputy Grand Masters for selecting diligent 
Masons as their representatives on our Committee; the District 
Blood Donor Chairmen for being the strong voice of our cause 
throughout all their district; and the lodge chairmen for being the 
record keepers and the constant reminder to the membership. 

We do not know the lodge chairmen who have long service, 
but we are well aware of the veterans serving as district chairmen. 
The senior member is still R.W. Bro. Chas. Heels of Victoria 
District with 17 years of dedication behind him. Following close 
behind are R.W. Bro. CalKrauter, North Huron District with 15 
years, R.W. Bro. Wm. J. C. Noble, Sudbury - Manitoulin District 
- 14 years, W. Bros. Claude Osborn and Howard Daines, Toronto 
4 District - 7 years, and Bro. Brian Stapley, Toronto 5 District 
with 6 years. In all, 18 district Chairmen are repeating in office and 
we thank and congratulate them and the 25 who have now com- 
pleted their first year in this service to their district and to this 
Committee. 

To show their efforts, here are their totals with last year's 
results for comparison:

Highlights from these figures are; highest number of dona- 
tions - 538 by Niagara B District - W. Bro. Wm. Bolton; the 
greatest increase 281 donations, which also produced the greatest 
percentage increase - 135% by Toronto District 3 - W. Bro. Joseph 
Bonney. A superb effort by both these brethren. 

From the district chairmen's reports, it would appear that we 
should be establishing a "Century Club". Bro. Tom Bailey of 
Keystone Lodge No. 412 has now made 1 18 blood donations, W. 
Bro. Draper Martineau, Algoma Lodge No. 469 and W. Bro. Bob 
Cameron, Cobden Lodge No. 459 both with 108 donations, and a 
member of Composite Lodge No. 30 shown only as more than 100. 
This, my brethren, is dedication to the Blood Donor cause and on 
your behalf we say to them a very special "thank you". 

Again this year, joint clinics were held with excellent results. 
The Seven Toronto Districts had their day-long clinic with con- 
tinuous entertainment donated by many brethren; Kingston and 
Fort Erie amalgamated with the Knights of Columbus to maintain 
a high level of support in both these cities; the Sault Ste. Marie 
Masons again won the city-wide trophy and as they have won it so 
consistently they have been given permanent possession of it; and 
in Toronto District 4 the Masters of 1968 conduct a very successful 
annual clinic. These are programs which show what can be done 
with a bit of extra effort, sometimes going outside of your own 
area to find the catalyst to make it work. 

Several previous district Blood Donor chairmen . were 
honoured at the last communication of Grand Lodge. R.W. Bros. 
Gordon Rabb of Bruce District, James Steele of London West 
District and James Napier of Windsor District are now completing 
a successful year as D.D.G.M.s. V.W. Bro. Elgin Workman, Grey 
District is the Grand Pursuivant and V.W. Bros. Laurie 
Brandridge, Georgian District and Keith Poss, Brant District, are 
Grand Stewards. We applaud their preferment and know that their 
Masonic leadership has lead to this recognition. 

This year a great number of the chairmen restated the thought 
that there are many, many, more Blood Donors than are presently 
being reported and expressed the hope that those members who 
haven't reported will have a change of heart and will let us know of 
their involvement. Too long have we played down our activities. 
We ARE involved in our communities and one way of indicating 
our participation is to tell how we share in the Blood Donor 
program. 



136 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On behalf of your district Blood Donor chairmen I say - 
"Keep Giving", talk it up with your friends and your new members 
to get them to develop the habit of donating and REPORT so that 
we can not only show our continued concern but be an increasing 
testimony to the needs of others. 

Share a pint with a friend - be a Blood Donor. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

ROD J. CONNOR, 

Chairman 



REPORT ON 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: 

The Board of General Purposes through the Committee on 
Benevolence, reports to you as follows: 

The Committee is composed of the Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master, Robert E. Davies, R.W. Bro. N. R. Richards, the 
Deputy Grand Master, and R.W. Bros. H. C. Steele, C. A. 
Sankey, W. L. Pacey, W. J. Curtis, C. W. Emmett, R. T. 
Runciman, A. E. Broadley, G. W. Buckler, J. D. Dyer and V. 
Wor. Bro. A. W. Watson. The undersigned and presenter of this 
report has the privilege of acting as Chairman and extend my 
thanks to them for their participation in our activities. 

The Committee on Benevolence is charged with the respon- 
sibility of reviewing applications for assistance from lodges on 
behalf of their members or relatives of deceased members. In 
general, these applications fall into two categories, those requiring 
immediate action and those that may be deferred for action by the 
Committee at its meeting in June. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 137 

Our constitution provides that in case of emergency the 
chairman is authorized, with the approval of the President of the 
Board of General Purposes, to make such grants as may be neces- 
sary to relieve the situation outlined in the application. During the 
year just completed there were 8 of these applications for which in- 
terim grants in the total amount of $4,271.69 was made. These, in 
accordance with the Rules of Benevolence were approved by the 
Committee at our meeting in Hamilton. 

One of these applications is particularly interesting from two 
points of view. A lodge in Toronto, as a special project, undertook 
the task of contacting the widows of their deceased members to 
determine if any assistance or advice could make their lot in life a 
little easier. This was a very active undertaking by this lodge and 
one that has given much pleasure to the Brethren taking part. As 
evidence of the thoroughness of their work the widow of one of 
their members who had died in 1927 - fifty years ago - was dis- 
covered. Her situation was such that both advice and assistance 
was needed. The lodge provided both and then forwarded an ap- 
plication to your Committee and through an interim grant we were 
able to help. We commend this lodge for their interest in 
Benevolence and are grateful for the opportunity of helping them 
achieve their objectives. 

Your Committee met on June 9th and 10th to approve these 
interim grants and to review the other applications received. This 
meeting is held in the Grand Lodge office in Hamilton and with the 
exception of the Grand Master, who was representing our Grand 
Lodge in another jurisdiction, every member of the Committee was 
present to take part in our discussions. 

The first order of business is the receiving of the Report of the 
Supervisor of Benevolence Rt. Wor. Bro. James C. Guy. His con- 
cern for the work of Benevolence in our Grand Jurisdiction, the 
completeness of detail, the thorough knowledge of virtually every 
application and the warm human desire to help those in distress 
which touches everything Brother Guy does was reflected in this 
report. Last year your Chairman stated that we were fortunate to 
have Brother Guy as our Supervisor of Benevolence. The year just 
past has cemented that opinion. The Committee has asked me to 
express to him our appreciation for his work and report to you our 
total satisfaction with his efforts. I am happy to do both. 

A total of 87 applications were reviewed. Once again, as hap- 
pens every year a large number of these were not complete or 



138 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

lacked sufficient information for your Committee to determine 
what assistance is needed. 

We echo the plea of every Committee since the inception of 
our Grand Lodge that each lodge take care to see that an applica- 
tion is fully completed. When this is not done the only person hurt 
is the applicant - the very one we are all trying to help. Those ap- 
plications not completed have been returned for amendment and 
will be reviewed at the Communication in July. 

During the year ended April 30th, 97 grants together with the 
8 interim grants were made for a total amount of $59,306.69. We 
estimate that in the coming year $62,000.00 will be required for 
Benevolent purposes and request that this sum be made available 
for that purpose. 

A number of matters other than the perusal of applications 
demanded attention this year. 

The first of these was a review and revision of the Rules of 
Benevolence for inclusion in the revised Constitution. These rules 
have not been changed for a great many years and certain small 
procedural differences exist between what we actually do and what 
is outlined in the rules presently in use. The Committee met in 
January of this year and examined these rules thoroughly. They 
have been revised to reflect accurately the manner in which grants 
are distributed, the authority required for the various classes of 
grants and the scope of our activities. These will be presented to 
you for your review by the Committee on Revision of the Constitu- 
tion in their draft copy in the fall of this year. We have worked 
closely with this committee on these rules and commend them for 
their interest and assistance. 

The Committee also reviewed the policy of the appointment 
of District Chairman of Benevolence and recommended that the 
practice be continued. This system was introduced a number of 
years ago by Most Wor. Bro. Nancekivell when he was Chairman 
of this Committee. The intent was and is to have in each district a 
Chairman of Benevolence whose responsibility is to assist the 
lodges in his district to properly complete applications for 
Benevolence and to encourage Benevolent activities in the lodges 
and on a district basis. 

The assistance provided by these Brethren is invaluable and 
cannot be overestimated. We would like to express to them our 
deep appreciation for their help. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1978 139 

The Committee has one major concern in this regard. Each 
year we ask that those Brethren who have served well as District 
Chairmen and are willing to continue to serve be re-appointed by 
the incoming District Deputy Grand Master. Too often this re- 
quest is overlooked and we repeat and emphasize it this year. The 
Brother who acts in this office needs to understand Benevolence 
and experience is definitely the best teacher he can have. 

The Committee also recommends that the Supervisor of 
Benevolence continue the practice of holding regional meetings 
with the district chairman, lodge chairman and senior lodge of- 
ficers. These have been held for several years and have proven suc- 
cessful in encouraging the establishment of Benevolent program- 
mes in our lodges and districts. Much remains to be done in this 
regard and these meetings provide one of the best methods of es- 
tablishing and encouraging programmes of this nature. 

From these meetings a number of recommendations have 
been forwarded to the Committee. Among these, two are pre- 
eminent. The first concerns the application forms we use. The peo- 
ple who use them are not happy with them and we agree with much 
of what they say. The Committee recommends that they be 
changed to reflect these views and your approval of this report will 
direct the Committee to prepare new forms for approval by the 
Board of General Purposes. 

The second major point is a request that the Committee 
prepare a manual that will outline the procedures used in preparing 
application forms together with simple recommendations for 
methods of establishing lodge and district Benevolent Program- 
mes. We concur with this request and recommend that the incom- 
ing Committee prepare and distribute a manual of this nature. 

While on the subject of district and lodge programmes may I 
report that this year, at my request, the District Deputy Grand 
Master of Toronto District Three. Rt. Wor. Bro. Frank Bruce, 
granted permission to Wor. Bro. David Gold, the District 
Chairman of Benevolence in his district, to operate a pilot project 
in the development of district and lodge Benevolent Programmes. 
Brother Gold is an active, energetic mason and worked long and 
hard on this task. Detailed plans were worked out and presented to 
the district at a meeting last fall. There were, one must report, mix- 
ed reactions to such a venture. There were those who feel that all 
Masonic Benevolent activities should be sub rosa in nature and 
that any attempt to organize, to seek out those needing help, or to 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

indicate what has been done for others destroys the very soul of 
Masonic Benevolence. On the other hand, some feel that absolute 
organization, publicity and constant surveillance of our members 
needs is essential for a successful result. One can make valid argu- 
ments for both points of view but I believe that somewhere between 
the two lies the proper perspective. No one is interested in embar- 
rassing anyone in need nor do we believe that anyone wishes to 
leave to happenstance the relief of someone needing assistance. 
The intent of this project was to bring to the minds of our Brethren 
the need for Masonic Benevolence in its true sense of concern for 
the welfare of our Brethren in both a personal and practical way. 
We hope the district continues the project and grows with it. We 
have learned much from it and will apply the lessons learned to 
future plans. In the interim may I thank Rt. Wor. Bro. Bruce for 
his support of the concept, the district for their participation and 
discussion and particularly Wor. Bro. Gold for his energy and con- 
cern. 

Our appreciation is once again extended to the local Boards of 
Relief in our Jurisdiction. These have always been active groups 
and are of great help to us in the administration of grants. We 
acknowledge their assistance and are grateful for it. 

We also recommend the renewal of our membership in the 
Masonic Relief Association of the United States and Canada. This 
organization is represented in all areas of the continent and is 
always willing to assist us in any way they can. 

During the meeting in Hamilton we are always the guests of 
the Hamilton Past Masters Association for a Friday night coffee 
break. This is a happy tradition and one we all look forward to. 
Our appreciation is evident in our enjoyment of this occasion. 

May I close by saying a word on behalf of the entire Commit- 
tee. Each member regards his role on the Committee as a privilege 
and a responsibility that is not to be taken lightly. We are grateful 
to you for the confidence placed in us and trust that our direction 
of your Benevolent activities this year has met with your approval. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

COLIN D. MACKENZIE, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
AUDIT AND FINANCE 

Presented by V.W. Bro. J. W. Millar, Chairman, on 
motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded by V.W. 
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. 
1978 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 transac- 
tions 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. 1978. 

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 
$2,012,849.28. 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 $70,692.59 over figures a year 
ago. 

(2) Following traditional policy, Grand Lodge Funds are in- 
vested in Trustee Securities with the exception of $160,000.00 
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 $192,000.00 of these debentures have been redeemed. 
including $10,000.00 redeemed on April 30th, 1978. 



142 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

All securities, with few exceptions, are fully registered as to 
capital and 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, com- 
mutations, interest on investments, etc. amounted to $326,826.45 
while disbursements totalled $281,171.03 leaving excess of income 
over expenditures of $45,655.42. 

(4) Grants for benevolent purposes, less those ref jnded and 
cancelled amounted to $58,256.69 a decrease of $1,872 01 from a 
year ago. These grants were paid out of the combined incomes of 
the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds, as supplemented by 
transfers from the General Fund, which last year amounted to 
$18,000.00. The anticipated amount for the coming year is 
$21,500.00. The Committee on Audit and Finance therefore 
recommends that in order to provide these funds, the Board of 
General Purposes authorize in accordance with Section 1 19 of the 
Constitution, appropriations 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, 1978 to April 30, 1979. 
It should be noted that the Committee on Benevolence has shown 
great care in administering its funds. 

Your committee recommends approval of the special 
donations to charitable institutions totalling $5,300.00 which were 
made under the authority of the Grand Master as itemized in the 
Financial Statement. 

In its review of all matters covered in this report, your Com- 
mittee has received the fullest co-operation and assistance from the 
Grand Secretary and his staff. The co-operation of the Grand 
Treasurer is also appreciated. Your Committee now formally 
recommends to this Grand Lodge the adoption, without amend- 
ment, 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, 1979.

The foregoing estimates have been carefully considered and com- 
piled after consultation with the Grand Secretary and the Grand 
Treasurer. Your committee believes they are realistic and provide 
for all items which might be reasonably foreseen and for such 
amounts as may be required to meet all Grand Lodge financial 
responsibilities, obligations and commitments for the current fiscal 
year. 

The ad hoc committee appointed by the Grand Master in May 
1975 to study a special insurance plan for insuring temples and 
regalia under one general policy, sought information from all of 
the lodges and nearly all of the temple corporations. It also sought 
assistance from seven well known insurance agencies. 

With the information obtained, a report was made to the 
Grand Master in July of 1977. After consideration it was decided 
that such a plan would not be feasible under all the circumstances. 

Your committee recommends that consideration be given to 
revising the pension plan for our employees, as proposed by the 
Grand Treasurer with a view to: 

(1) Increasing the contribution by employees 

(2) Providing for employer contribution 

(3) Making provision for optional additional contributions 

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

JOHN W.MILLAR 

Chairman. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1978 145 

REPORT OF THE GRAND CHAPLAIN 

The Grand Chaplain, R.W. Bro. Rev. Eric Sisel, 
presented his report. On motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R. W. Bro. Sisel 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: 

Looking back on the past year as Grand Chaplain, it is a year 
never to be forgotten. More than a distinguished honor, the Office 
of Grand Chaplain gives a Mason a unique view of the Fraternity. 
Beyond the confines of any district, he experiences the state of 
Masonry in the entire jurisdiction along with the Grand Master 
and other Grand Lodge officers. 

In Lodge Dedications, District Services in various areas of the 
Province and in attending fraternal functions, this wider view 
emerges. Above all, the Grand Chaplain represents the spiritual 
emphasis central to all of Masonry. 

First, we give thanks to the Most High for the Blessings of this 
past year. Without His sustaining Grace and strength we can 
achieve nothing. 

Secondly, we are grateful to you, Most Worshipful Sir, for 
making this year possible. In brotherly affection we have enjoyed 
our association and know that the friendship will continue. We can 
give no greater praise than to call the Grand Master a true Mason 
with all that it implies. 

Thirdly, we congratulate the jurisdiction's team of District 
Chaplains. A finer team never a man had to work with! Without 
exception dedicated and faithful Brethren, who have worked with 
their District Deputy Grand Masters to provide the spiritual 
emphasis on the district level. 

Fourthly, thank you to all other Grand Lodge officers and 
Brethren whom we have met during this past masonic year. Your 
fellowship, help and prayers will never be forgotten. 



146 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Now for a brief summary of the work of the Grand Chaplain's 
Office for the past twelve months: 

It was a busy year. We have accepted all invitations to speak 
at Divine Services, except those on conflicting dates. 

Without exception, all district divine services were well at- 
tended. There were several Lodge Dedications and dedication of 
regalia at anniversaries and numerous other masonic functions. 

The district chaplains report faithful attendance at most visits 
of their District Deputies. Sacrificially they gave of their time and 
effort to officiate at services, lead in grace and invocations and as- 
sist in masonic education, especially in regard to the Volume of the 
Sacred Law. 

Statistics could not do justice to their efforts and we have pur- 
posely omitted them. However, we would like to make suggestions 
to assist them in their work. 

First, an official installation of the District Chaplain, at the 
beginning of his term along with other district officers, perhaps by 
the outgoing District Deputy, would be a meaningful occasion. It 
could take place as part of a service of worship. This would help to 
underscore the importance of the district officers in the work of the 
D.D.G.M. 

Secondly, we urge the Committee on Masonic Education to 
give consideration to preparing an outline of duties and suggested 
functions for the district chaplain. Most of this is now only passed 
on by word of mouth and varies greatly in the experience of each 
district. 

Finally, in closing this report we express our gratitude to our 
Mother Lodge, Unity Lodge No. 376 in Huntsville, for their 
patience and understanding this past masonic year. The Brethren 
provided me with the Grand Chaplain's regalia and excused our 
many absences due to Grand Lodge functions. 

For all the Brethren in our great jurisdiction, may the Blessing 
of the Most High rest upon this fraternity and the Brethren 
throughout the world. 



Respectfully submitted

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 



FOREWORD 



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 my privilege to present the Report of the Committee on 
Fraternal Correspondence. This Report is a foreword to the 
reviews of the Annual Proceedings of our sister Grand Lodges. 
From 1961 to 1977 these reviews were prepared by R.W. Bro. Dr. 
J. J. Talman. This Grand Lodge is indebted to R.W. Bro. Talman 
for his concise and factual summaries and his ability to write in 
such a manner as to interest the average Ontario Mason in the 
work of Masonry beyond the borders of our own jurisdiction. We 
offer to R.W. Bro. Talman our sincere appreciation of his efforts 
to ignite our interest in the work done in the Masonic world and 
keeping that interest burning by his especial talents used in the 
selection of pertinent items and combining them into an easily read 
and understandable result. We welcome R.W. Bro. Dr. C. A. 
Sankey to the office of Reviewer. It is a mammoth task. We hope 
that he will enjoy the challenge, does not find it burdensome and 
reaps the satisfaction attendant upon successful accomplishment. 
We thank R.W. Bro. Sankey for accepting this responsibility at 
this time. 

Lodges in Ontario continue to be deeply concerned with the 
rise in assessments and taxes on their buildings. The reviews of 
Alberta. Connecticut. Florida and Quebec indicate similar 
anxieties. 

The new Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Arkansas plan- 
ned to emphasize the training of junior officers. His advice could 
well be heeded by all junior officers in our jurisdiction. 

Your Chairman has always considered that the Investigating 
Committee on an application for membership to be one of the 
most important committees of the constituent lodge. It is 
refreshing to read in the review of Arkansas that a resolution was 
presented by a subordinate lodge which was meant to increase the 
effectiveness of investigating committees. Unfortunately it was 
held to be impractical. 



The per capita dues to our Grand Lodge were increased to two 
dollars in 1976. The Brethren might be interested in comparing this 
with like dues in other jurisdictions. Read Connecticut, Indiana, 
Maine, Michigan, Saskatchewan and South Dakota. 

Your Committee feels that your attention should be drawn to 
the costs of maintaining Masonic Homes in our sister jurisdictions. 
Read the reviews of Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Mas- 
sachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska and Nova Scotia. 

The report of Japan, as a whole, is earnestly recommended to 
your consideration. It indicates the progress that has been made 
during the twenty years that this Grand Lodge has been in ex- 
istence in spite of difficulties which are slowly being overcome. 

Quotations from outstanding addresses will be found under 
India, Texas and Virginia. 

Freemasonry continues to challenge its members in every 
phase of life. Read what the Grand Master of Alberta has to say 
about a particular challenge he has presented to his Brethren. 

This foreword is your invitation to read about the exciting 
events and deep concerns arising in the Masonic world. Your Com- 
mittee assures you that your time will not be wasted if you read the 
reviews. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, on behalf of the Com- 
mittee, 

BRUCE B. FOSTER, 

Chairman. 



Fraternal Correspondence and Reviews 



Your new reviewer exercises a privilege of change, in giving 
pride of place to the conclusion of M.W. Bro. Mr. Justice Madon's 
address after his installation as M.W. Grand Master of India. 
November 27, 1976. It is a message to Masons throughout the 
world and your reviewer warmly commends it to all his brethren. 

"Freemasonry operates on two planes - the private and the 
public. On the private plane Freemasonry consists of our rituals. 
Our rituals are not just empty routine ceremonies. They are in- 
tended to convey to us, in the form of dramatic representations, the 
great moral and ethical lessons which Freemasonry teaches us. 
Rituals when performed unintelligibly or incoherently lose all 
meaning. It is. therefore, necessary that rituals should be well per- 
formed so that their true meaning is unfolded and lessons they seek 
to convey learnt. 

On the public plane Freemasonry consists in spreading our 
message of Brotherly Love. Relief and Truth. Freemasonry knows 
no boundaries of caste or colour, race or religion. Freemasonry has 
only one creed - the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of 
Man. Let us then bring Brotherly Love to a world torn with strife 
and divided by hatred so that the world may come to know an era 
of peace. --- The important aspect of charity which Freemasonry 
teaches us is charity of the heart. It is to see others as others want 
to be seen, to look with tolerance and understanding upon their 
failings and foibles. It is the ready encouraging word and the quick 
forgiving heart. It is to stretch forth the helping hand, unsought 
and unsolicited, not only to other Freemasons but to all men. --- 

But above all, there is Truth. A man cannot live on the 
material plane alone. There is a hunger in the heart of each man to 
understand the meaning and purpose of life, but here our 
knowledge fails us and logic is powerless. It is not given to any man 
to see the face of Eternal Truth, though a few, albeit a very few, 
may at times glimpse it, but let us at least by the rectitude of our 
actions and the integrity of our character acquire the ability to 
detect untruth wherever it be and to recognize truth when we see it. 
Let us all then this evening, as we embark upon this new decade, 
solemnly pledge ourselves to be ambassadors of Brotherly Love, 
crusaders in the cause of Relief and earnest seekers after Truth; 
and may the Most High God aid our united endeavours."

The reports of the Masonic Home showed 65 residents, a 
decrease of 13. Total expenses are listed at S637.000. Architect's 
fees were paid for construction plans for a new Masonic Home and 
all Home assets (over S6 million) were transferred to the "Masonic 
Home Building Fund". Historical data on the Home from its 
founding in 1913 are being assembled. 

The Committee on Masonic Education suggested that the> be 
given the status of a Grand Lodge standing committee, with budget 
to promote workshops etc. They also recommended approval lor 
multiple degree conferral. These were rejected by the Committee 
on Masonic Jurisprudence, who also moved deletion from the 
education committee report of an additional proposal "owing to 
much confusion and objection". It must have been realK radical' 

The Grand Master attended 150 lodges in the state (including 
20 installations) and 14 outside, numerous assemblies of co- 
ordinate bodies, as well as other Grand Lodges. There uere 
special communications - one to constitute Perfection Lodge No 
924.

the Queen; other receptions; a report of the Jurisprudence Com- 
mittee to clear several notices of motion for action the following 
day; the Grand Master's address; and a report on the twelfth an- 
nual Masonic Spring Workshop. 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Aspeslet, referred to two con- 
ferences: of the officers of the four Western Canadian Jurisdictions 
at Banff, September 9-11 and of the Grand Lodges of Canada at 
Calgary, February 17-18. Topics discussed focussed on the func- 
tioning of masonry in today's world. The Grand Master attended 
District Meetings in each of the 20 districts. The attendance of 
Master Masons and some informal question and answer sessions 
were encouraged. The G.M. also attended numerous installations, 
presiding at only one because "it is not even desirable" for Grand 
Lodge Officers to install Lodge Officers. He made a point of 
visiting Lodges which no Grand Master had attended in recent 
years. Dispensations were refused for the conferral of 6 M.M. 
degrees at an open air ceremony and for holding a special meeting 
of a Lodge on Sunday for the election of officers. Finally, "I 
would, my Brethren, leave you with a challenge. Let us endeavour 
to get away from the service club atmosphere which seems to be 
creeping into our Craft. Masonry, I am sure, is something of the 
heart, not what we wear as pin and jewel or what we tack up on the 
wall in the form of scrolls." The committee on the G.M.s address 
was made up of one past Grand Master, one past D.D.G.M. and 
one Past Master. 

The Masonic Spring Workshop at Banff had an attendance of 
554 under the theme "Walking Tall." The book stall had sales of 
$2000! (We wish we had equivalent masonic book buying habits.) 

The report on the Condition of Masonry includes highlights 
from each District Deputy's report. Taxation is a major problem. 
Taxes on the Edmonton Temple were $28,000. In smaller centres, 
several lodge buildings were sold and one Lodge gave their hall to 
the community to alleviate the tax problems. With population 
shifts, a number of small rural lodges with few resident members 
are in serious difficulties. Some amalgamations are inevitable. The 
city lodges are prosperous.

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 7 

There were 6 special communications of Grand Lodge (5 cor- 
nerstones, 1 new lodge constitution). The Grand Orator spoke at 
each (his ms. being deposited in the cornerstone). An honour guard 
from the 4° Knights of Columbus was present at one of these occa- 
sions. 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Nelson, in his address, 
emphasized "that leadership, communication among your officers 
and brethren, is the secret of progress of our Great Fraternity." He 
advocated "more family involvement in lodge activity and in sup- 
porting our youth programs." He refused permission for a non- 
Mason C.P.A. to audit lodge accounts. 

There is a Masonic Home Endowment Fund, and several 
related funds, but no Masonic Home. Some of the available 
revenue was used for specific benevolent and lodge purposes. Five 
scholarships of $500 each were given (there were 48 applications). 
Next year there will be 10 scholarships of $750 each. 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence renewed a 
recommendation that Grand Representatives submit reviews of the 
proceedings of their respective Grand Lodges. No reviews were 
printed.

A resolution was presented by a subordinate lodge at Grand 
Lodge to require not less than two members of each candidate's in- 
vestigation committee to visit the home of the applicant together, 
and to include the wife and family in the discussion. This was 
received "not unsympathetically" but held to be impractical. 

There were 8 special communications, all for dedication of 
premises or of memorial plaques. 

Twenty-nine Masonic trials were dealt with by the Committee 
on Appeals and Grievances. The result was 12 expulsions (9 for 
selling liquor, a liquor selling licence in a wife's name being appro- 
priate evidence) and 16 suspensions. 



GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 



The new Grand Master planned to emphasize training af 
junior officers. "During the ceremonies of installation is not the 
time to be planning for your role as Master - that planning begins 
upon your appointment or election as Junior Deacon". 

The newly appointed D.D.G.M.s were installed at a private 
ceremony in December when they received their aprons and in- 
structions. 

Resolutions were introduced to elect and install officers of all 
lodges in December and to move the annual communication of 
Grand Lodge to February. The necessary constitutional amend- 
ments, including changes in the fiscal vear, will be voted on in 
1978.

Grand Lodge formally received the Honourable the Lieuten- 
ant Governor, R.W. Bro. Walter S. Owen. Our M.W. Bro. 
Nancekivell was one of the distinguished guests. 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Mitchell, is obviously a warm 
outgoing person. His address was cast as an expression of thanks 
for assistance and support during each stage of a busy year. 

At Grand Lodge, William Tyre was given the rank of Past 
Grand Master for "over 60 years service to this Grand Lodge." A 
resolution providing for gold braid on regalia for Lodges of 100 
years standing was defeated. 

The D. D.G.Ms, are strictly representatives of the Grand 
Master to their district, not of the district to the G.M. A sugges- 
tion for consultation with the District W.Ms, for submission of 
three names from which the new Grand Master might choose his 
D.D.G.M. was modified to requesting the present D.D.G.M. to 
consult some P. D. D.G.Ms, and make suggestions. Constitutional 
amendments will be proposed next year. There will also be some 
distinctive regalia for brethren with V.W. rank. 

Grand Lodge recognized the Grand Lodge of the Dominican 
Republic.

M.W. Bro. Nancekivell attended the annual communication 
and spoke on behalf of the Canadian delegates. 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Chapman, had been especially 
concerned with the minimal use of masonic temples, with taxes. 
and insurance costs. One of the standing committees initiated a 
two-year study. Their first report was largely fact-finding. 76% of 
the temples have limited or no use for non-masonic functions, and 
61% earn less than S500 per year for such use. Half the temples 
cost less than S4.000 per year to operate. Seven temples cost over 
$12,000. Approximately one third paid over S3.000 in taxes, over 
SI. 000 for insurance and over S3.000 for utilities. Only 8 temples 
of 72 had mortgages. Interim recommendations were: insurance 
seminars for Temple officers; attempts to get state tax relief for 
buildings with no commercial revenue: and special local commit- 
tees to promote greater use occupancy. 

Substantial emphasis was placed in youth groups DeMolay 
and Rainbow. A constitutional amendment to reduce the age for 
initiation to 18 was defeated. 

Grand Lodge dues comprise S10 per member for the Masonic 
Charity Foundation. $3.50 per capita tax and SO. 50 for specified 
other purposes, for a total of $14 per member per year. Total 
Lodge dues must be really high.

Bicentennial celebrations played a large part in the year's ac- 
tivities. A special convocation and service were held on Saturday. 
May 29th in Bethlehem Chapel, Washington National Cathedral, 
to honour heroes of the past and solicit divine favour and guidance. 
The principal speaker (and, from your reviewer's personal 
knowledge, they could hardly have had a finer one) was 111. Bro. 
George A. Newbury, Past Sovereign Grand Commander, A. & 
A.S.R., N.M.J., who gave "A Salute to Patriotism". The 
"Washington Bible" from Fredericksburg Lodge No. 4, Va. and 
the "George Washington Gavel" from Potomac Lodge No. 5. 
D.C., and other Washington memorabilia, were presented. 
Another special Communication was held October 9th to com- 
memorate the laying of the cornerstone of the District of Columbia 
near Jones Point lighthouse by Alexandria Lodge No. 22. The text 
of a Philadelphia newspaper with dateline April 21, 1791 was read. 
Part of the original dedicatory prayer read: — 

"May this stone long commemorate the goodness of God in 
these uncommon events which have given America a name among 
nations. Under this stone may jealousy and selfishness be forever 
buried. From this stone may a superstructure arise, whose glory, 
whose magnificence, whose stability, unequalled hitherto, shall 
astonish the world, and invite even the savage of the wilderness to 
take shelter under its roof." 

There are serious financial problems for the Temple at 
Washington. Capital reserves had been depleted to effect past 
repairs. Strong corrective action, unfortunately long overdue, is 
being undertaken.

stone-carving. The Board of Benevolence is being reorganized into 
an Educational Trust, a Foundation, and a Central (or Grand) 
Charity. It will take several years to complete the transition. The 
per capita fees were increased from 16p to £1.2 for brethren in 
London and from 8p to £1 for brethren in the provinces. The 
number of lodges increased by 65. Over 18,000 Grand Lodge cer- 
tificates were issued. 

1,742 brethren attended the annual investiture. The Grand 
Master, Pro Grand Master, Deputy Grand Master and Assistant 
Grand Master were proclaimed by their "several styles and titles". 
H. R. H. the Duke of Kent has completed a decade in office as 
Grand Master. 

At the June meeting, £75,000 was granted to the Queen's 
Silver Jubilee Appeal and, "in Masonic commemoration of this 
great event", special donations of £20,000 to "each of the Masonic 
Institutions and to the Samaritan Fund of the Royal Masonic 
Hospital". 22 new lodges were warranted. Six lodges in the Sudan 
and one in Bahrain were "erased from the roll", as, under present 
conditions, there was "no prospect of their being revived". 

In the September meeting 11 new lodges were warranted. A 
warning was issued to brethren visiting lodges overseas not only 
that the Grand Lodge of reference had to be recognized by the 
United Grand Lodge of England, but also that there must be no co- 
visitors from another jurisdiction not so recognized. "Such a situa- 
tion calls for tact and diplomacy in withdrawing without giving of- 
fence - but the duty (to the English Constitution) transcends the ap- 
parent calls for courtesy". (What would you do?) 

At the December meeting: 7 new lodges were warranted and 2 
erased (one in Bangladesh, one in England). The automatic period 
for suspension N.P.D. was decreased from 3 years to 2. 

The quarterly reports list additions to the Grand Lodge 
library and museum. Many of these are of recent origin but there 
was a collection of 32 craft and Royal Arch certificates 1794-1899 
and a collection of "between 2000 and 2500 volumes, pamphlets 
and manuscript works" on permanent loan from the G.L. of Mark 
Master Masons of England and Wales" and some glass and 
silverware with Masonic emblems from the early 19th century.

This small but active Grand Lodge has recorded a gain in 
membership each year since 1970. A brief summary in English at 
the end of the proceedings refers to "musical executions". Several 
pictures attest to both vocal and instrumental presentations, in- 
cluding an original composition (excerpts of the score are 
published in the proceedings) for "Lux Aeterna," ("And God said 
'Let there be Light'.") The score is of a difficulty to require signifi- 
cant musical competence so it can hardly have been intended for 
general lodge use. 

Finland has four grades of a "Badge of Merit." Five brethren 
received "the Grand Badge of Merit" and there were numerous 
presentations in Classes I, II and III.

Nineteen of the 22 living past Grand Masters were received at

The Grand Master's report includes a detailed list of 49 dis- 
pensations. Three are unusual; to permit a lodge to elect a new 
W.M. - the W.M. having been appointed D.D.G.M.!: to confer the 
F.C. and M.M. degrees short of time and limited to parts with 
which "he can physically comply" on a terminally ill brother; and 
"Dispensation for a Canadian Degree team to confer the Degree 
on their candidate and open a Canadian Lodge --- this dispensa- 
tion subject to a Dispensation and approval o\' the Grand Master of 
one of the Canadian Grand Lodges." (You will, no doubt, share 
your reviewer's curiosity as to which Grand Lodge and which 
degree.) 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 13 

The Grand Master issued 12 "executive orders'*, one order to 
every lodge was "to assist in establishing eligibility for tax exemp- 
tion" by setting aside a portion of every stated meeting for a lec- 
ture or discussion of some Masonic or local community charity --- 
which members be urged to support --- and record be made in the 
minutes; the lodge bulletin to note the above; lodge facilities to be 
made available at or below cost to charitable groups who do not 
have their own facilities; the Lodge Board of Relief to meet "fre- 
quently" and report at the Lodge; that every Lodge contribute to 
some community charitv. 



The Grand Master's schedule was hectic but well organized. 
12 cornerstones were laid, including the Capitol Building at Tal- 
lahassee. 2 museums. 2 schools and a county public works 
building. Visitations were made in and out of state for 180 days 
during the year. Two lodges were consecrated, dedicated and con- 
stituted. Dispensations for two more lodges were issued. 

The Grand Master made 16 specific recommendations dealing 
with regulations and the majority of these were approved. One 
dealt with acceptance of evidence of conviction of a felony under 
federal or state law as sufficient for action for U.M.C.. subject to 
the right of the accused to present evidence in mitigation and of the 
right to appeal to Grand Lodge. Another recommended a 
pamphlet "Freemasonry - truths and myths" be made available for 
distribution to non-members. Twenty-five identification cards 
were issued to qualified Cuban Masons to permit them to affiliate 
with Florida lodges. 

The Masonic Home averaged 151 residents and includes a 
comprehensive care centre. Operation cost was S7.675 per resident. 
A Masonic Relief Care Investigator was recommended to speed up 
evaluation of applicants. The Masonic Home endowment funds ex- 
ceed S8.8 million, divided roughly 21% U.S. treasury securities. 
50% other bonds and 29% corporate stocks. 

The Masonic Education Committee provides a qualification 
examination of 50 questions for Masters. The many Committee 
reports are clear and specific in their conclusions. 

Your reviewer is impressed by the competence of M.W. Bro. 
Griffie and it was a pleasure to read the proceedings of this well

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Pippitt, stressed lodge 
finances; "many lodges still have their heads in the sand when it 
comes to finances. (They) have expenses that exceed their income 
from dues, draining any reserves just to pay current expenses." He 
promoted prepaid Life Membership: "We have the simplest and 
finest Life Membership program of any Grand Lodge." (No 
details in the proceedings). The Grand Master also emphasized 
Masonry's public image: "The more we espouse and expose the 
principles of Masonry to the public, the more interest we incur." 

Grand Lodge has done very well with its investments, current 
value being 114% of cost. The Committee on Masonic Resource 
and Education updated manuals for District Deputies, for 
Wardens, for Secretaries and for Coaches. The Committee on 
Fraternal Relations has a single page report, although referring to 
proceedings "from approximately one hundred Grand Lodges." 
The Grand Orator referred to the "disastrous" attrition (35%!) 
between initiations and raisings. This is the same percentage as 
reported in 1976 and indicates a serious flaw. 

There was one special Communication for laying the corner- 
stone of a high school.

Serious loss of membership in metropolitan Chicago con- 
tinues, - a net loss of 8.35 for each new member, but new lodges are

Masonry" is active and making useful suggestions. The Commit- 
tee on Lodges notes increasingly severe taxation on temples, inade- 
quate initiation and annual lodge fees and, correctly, criticizes a 
"bargain basement" approach to masonry. They also recommend 
a personal visit of two brethren before any suspension N.P.D. Dur- 
ing the year, 2 new lodges were constituted but there were 9 con- 
solidations. 

The Illinois Lodge of Research, chartered in 1976, has 475 
members. There are plans for publication of "a complete history of 
Illinois Freemasonry". 

The Grand Lodge of Pernambuco, Brazil, was recognized. 

The Masonic Home had 272 residents at an average cost of 
$8,000. The Home capital endowment reached $20.4 million. 
There were 5 large donations from estates (2 of $1 million or over). 
One estate of $800,000 was used for renovations and new construc- 
tion. The Children's Home had 19 residents (cost $13,500 per 
child), including 2 attending college. It has just over $6 million en- 
dowment. 

Fraternal reviews of 61 jurisdictions are included in the

the functioning at the time of the Supreme Court in decisions af- 
fecting a critical political situation in India may have been in- 
volved. R.W. Bro. C. D. Natarajan, now the Grand Secretary, 
acted as G.M. in the interregnum. Mr. Justice D. P. Madon was 
elected Grand Master by the Electoral College May 16th and in- 
stalled on November 27, 1976. The proceedings available for 
review are limited to the installation of the Grand Lodge officers. 
The only statistics are in a brief report with audited financial state- 
ments. 

The installation ceremonies were impressive and the new 
Grand Master is obviously a man of ability, intelligence, 
scholarship, integrity and humanity. A quotation from his speech 
following his installation is given at the beginning of these fraternal 
reviews. 

Here is part of M.W. Bro. Madon's "installation message" to 
his brethren: 

"There is one task which urgently awaits us, a task in which 
we can fulfil our real role as Freemasons. The last three decades 
and half have been the most hectic and go-ahead in the history of 
man's achievements. No period in history can match the progress 
we have made in science and technology. --- Fantastic scientific 
discoveries have been made with such breath-taking frequency that 
they are no longer looked upon as wonders. --- Man has walked on 
the moon and stripped it of its mystery and magic so that to the 
boys and girls of today the moon no more stands for love but 
signifies only space-ships and astronauts. Man has sent a machine 
to Mars and commanded it from here to scoop earth. Mars is no 
more the god of war but is a collection of scientific data. We live in 
an age of change, an age of experiment. We are no more satisfied 
with what we have, but must for ever be seeking something new. 
something different - ever restless, ever discontent. We want a 
short-cut to everything - to knowledge, to culture, to success. We 
have, therefore, substituted computerized data for knowledge, cap- 
suled information for culture and we want to get to the top of the 
ladder of success in a helicopter, for climbing it rung by rung ap- 
pears to us too slow and laborious a process. To do this we have 
jettisoned our moral values. --- The first casualties have been in- 
tegrity and a moral conscience. --- The old virtues are despised as 
old-fashioned and out-dated, and an honest man is looked upon as 
an object of pity for being an unpractical fool. --- More than ever 
are these lines of T. S. Eliot, written forty-two years ago, true 
today: — 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 17 

'Endless invention, endless experiment, 
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness; 
Knowledge of speech, but not of silence; 
Knowledge of words and ignorance of the Word, 
All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance. 
All our ignorance brings us nearer to our death, 
But nearness to death no nearer to GOD, 
Where is the Life we have lost in living? 
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? 
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?' 

The principles and tenets of our Order teach us to measure 
our actions by the rule of rectitude, to square our conduct by the 
principles of morality, and to guide our inclinations, and even our 
thoughts, within the compass of propriety. Let us then, as 
Freemasons, strive to bring about a resurgence of the old moral 
values. Let us resolve on this occasion to translate our principles 
and tenets into our lives and conduct, and our teachings and 
doctrines into our acts and deeds. Let us seek to restore in 
ourselves, and by precept and example in others, uprightness of 
conduct and integrity of character. I exhort all my Brethren, not as 
Grand Master, but as a brother to his Brethren, to strive towards 
this end, so that we may become an ornament to our Order and a 
pride to our country."

over half of this amount had been donated and, as most of the 
work had been done. Grand Lodge voted to make the committed 
payment by each lodge mandatory. 

The proceedings are unique in the clarity and organization of 
basic financial information and statistical tables. Funds under the 



18 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

control of Grand Lodge are dominated by the financing of the 
Masonic Home, to whose requirements $6.4 million of $6.75 mil- 
lion capital, and $4.2 million of $4.54 budget are allocated. The per 
capita tax for 1977 will be $11.25, of which $9 is for the Home. 
There are 441 guests, 122 over 90 years of age (oldest 101). Slightly 
over half are in "residence" (annual cost $5,891 each), the 
remainder in "hospital" (annual cost $1 1,603 each). Improvements 
are continually being made, e.g., a new dispensary, a call system 
from each room in the residence, and power plant emission con- 
trol. 

Grand Lodge ceremonies included constitution and consecra- 
tion of 1 new lodge, 8 new temple dedications, 4 lodge centennials. 
The Grand Master approved 186 "table lodges" for St. John the 
Evangelist's day, with 441 lodges participating. 

The Grand Master, in a formal proclamation, requested each 
temple to erect a flag pole or flagstaff (if not already installed) and 
to display the Stars and Stripes on appropriate anniversaries, in- 
cluding 15 stated dates. 

The Committee on Foreign Fraternal Relations recom- 
mended against any action on recognition of the Grand Orient of 
Brazil or the Grand Lodge of Cuba. They expressed concern as to 
the Masonic situation in Italy and reported that rumours of "grave 
irregularities" in Belgium appeared to be unfounded. 

Unfortunately, Fraternal Reviews are not in the proceedings. 
65 proceedings of 62 jurisdictions had been reviewed with publica- 
tion in the "Indiana Freemason". As the reviewer is M.W. Bro. 
Dwight L. Smith, they were unquestionably pertinent, instructive, 
interesting and well worth reading.

Having completed its first 20 years, this Grand Lodge serious- 
ly enters the second phase of its existence, that of reducing 
dependence on American personnel and on the American military 
presence, and becoming a primarily Japanese institution. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 19 

The Community Relations Committee reports: "Unfor- 
tunately, the average Japanese man on the street is not aware of us 
or our functions. For the most part, he has no ties with the military 
community where many of our Masonic functions occur. . . Things 
have started to happen. Events have caught the eyes of the 
Japanese people. Questions are being asked. Who are these 
Masons? . . . (Our) Children's Charity Festival was picked up by 
several of the media and presented in a manner that dispelled much 
of these rumors . . . Our small but extremely active Lodge in Wak- 
kanai, Hokkaido was able to put into operation their voice library 
for the blind . . . They have the continuing program of seeing-eye 
dogs . . . Donations (have been made by Grand Lodge) to the Sight 
Assistance equipment for the blind school at Yokohama." 

Substantial progress was made on revised translations of the 
ritual into Japanese. 

The Grand Master. M.W. Bro. Nishiyama, attended the 
Grand Masters' Conference of North America and was selected to 
respond to the Chairman's introduction of representatives of 
Foreign Jurisdictions.

There were 20 special communications, the most prestigious 
being for the cornerstone of the new Supreme Court Building 
which was laid by "Chief Justice Harold R. Fatzer, assisted by the 
Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Kansas, Ralph D. Walker, Grand 
Master." Some 1,500 people attended. There was a special tristate 
communication near their common border attended by the Grand 
Masters and Grand Lodges of Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas 
and 7 special communications to dedicate markers for graves of 
past Grand Masters. 

The Grand Master obviously promoted public activity. In his 
address to Grand Lodge he said: "We cannot place ourselves in the 
public light too often. People must realize that we are an organiza- 
tion for good, based on ancient rule and ancient principles. I 
believe that, as Grand Master, public relations is one of the prin- 
cipal duties of the office," and on another occasion he asked: 



20 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"Does anyone in the community know you are a Mason? Tell 
someone tomorrow where you were tonight and if you had a good 
time.'" 

The Grand Master wrote to every mason who had been 
suspended for non-payment of dues during 1975; to every member 
of DeMolay between 18 and 21 telling them that no one would ask 
them to join Masonry, but that the Grand Lodge of Kansas was a 
progressive Grand Lodge which accepted 18 year olds; a personal 
letter to each recipient of a 50-year designation; and a letter to 
every master mason in the jurisdiction asking for his interest in the 
Masonic Home and the Masonic Foundation. 

The Grand Master removed one lodge Secretary from office 
for persistent and continuing objection to the G.M.'s appointment 
of his district's D.D.G.M. and unwarranted criticism of the 
D.D.G.M., even after the Grand Master visited the lodge in ques- 
tion in an attempt to settle the issue. 

Strong corrective action was taken by the Grand Master in 
the financing of the Kansas Masonic Home. Its expenses of $1.25 
million per annum were reducing the capital (over $6 million) of 
the Kansas Masonic Foundation Inc. by as much as $250,000 per 
year — obviously an untenable situation. Negotiations were in- 
itiated with Federal Medicade and Medicare which may assist very 
materially; details of "life-care" contracts for new residents were 
revised; the Grand Master's letter campaign more than doubled 
voluntary contributions to the Foundation from $32,000 to over 
$75,000. Progress was made in bringing the home up to present- 
day health and safety standards. An attempt to raise the per capita 
assessment for the home from $1.50 to $5.00 failed (trying for too 
much?). Serious problems remain but the positive and constructive 
efforts must be commended. 

* The Public School committee was active with substantial es- 
say prizes ("Public Schools in the Next Century"), distribution of 
the Declaration of Independence (complete with masonic emblems 
and state flags) and participation in "American Heritage — Public 
Schools Month."

The Annual Communication turned out to be quite a session 
as a new Constitution was adopted. Consideration of this was the 
only item of business for the afternoon session of October 20th and 
this was adjourned to an evening session from 8:30 p.m. to 2:55 
a.m. before it was all settled, over 10 hours of debate! The 
proceedings do not detail or summarize what points were in con- 
tention, or subject to procedural manoeuvre, but record only the 
final formal brief resolutions. There is, however, a long section on 
details of numerous amendments to "the Revised Constitution" 
submitted prior to the meeting by "the elected Grand Lodge Of- 
ficers." Of these at least four may well have been provocative: — 

Under Electioneering: "Adoption of a resolution by a subor- 
dinate lodge stating the qualifications and recommending one of its 
members for an elective office in the Grand Lodge, and the mailing 
of said resolution to the subordinate lodges and Masons in Ken- 
tucky shall not be considered a violation of this section; provided 
that a lodge may not issue more than one letter and that letter shall 
not contain any solicitation of support — (etc. with some ad- 
ditional safeguards.)" 

Under Governing Statewide Jurisdiction: "when a candidate 
petitions a lodge other than the one closest to his residence, he 
must submit in writing his reason for petitioning this lodge." and 
"the lodge nearest the residence of the petitioner must conduct an 
investigation. — The results must be submitted to the lodge 
petitioned (which) must also conduct an investigation." 

Under Time Between Degrees: — " — is one lunar month and 
the Grand Master is not authorized to dispense with this time." 

Under Qualifications: — "No person shall be eligible to an of- 
fice in Grand Lodge unless he be a permanent member thereof (it 
is assumed this means a past master) "except the office of Grand 
Chaplain, which office may be filled by any minister who is af- 
filiated with a subordinate lodge of the state." 

At the end of the marathon session the Grand Master said: 
"In my opinion, we have accomplished more in this Grand Lodge 
today than has been accomplished in any thirty year period 
heretofore." Grand Lodge got back to business again at 9 a.m.! 

One of the many dispensations issued by the Grand Master is 
unusual: — "Vine Grove Lodge No. 603 to move its charter to the 
home of Entered Apprentice Bro. C. T. Norman and confer the 
Fellow Craft and Mas.er Mason degrees on June 19, 1976 and July 



22 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

17, 1976 (respectively). All profanes must vacate the home while 
the Degrees are being conferred." 

Sixteen committee reports had been preprinted and made 
available. These were not read in Grand Lodge but adopted by a 
single resolution and ordered printed in the proceedings. There is a 
special committee "of Legislation of Kentucky" who make "week- 
ly contacts between legislators, committeemen and other members 
of the Craft who (studied) the Legislative Record and discussed the 
effect of new legislation. We are pleased to report that Masonry 
had no bad legislation passed during this 60-day session." The 
Committee on Publicity advocated publicity on such items as 
"recognition of Masons who are elected or appointed to public of- 
fice of trust" and "Lodge participation in school and civic 
programs." Political participation concerning "Americanism" is 
obviously proper. There is a "Committee on Religious Interest" 
chiefly directed to extensive services and prayer meetings at the 
Masonic Homes. The Masonic Home Journal had printed a 
limited number of reviews of proceedings of other jurisdictions in- 
cluding "Canada of Quebec." It would be interesting to know 
which jurisdiction was reviewed. 

There are two Masonic Homes. The Masonic Widows and 
Orphans' Home and Infirmary had 229 ladies and 19 children. The 
annual expenditure was $2.16 million or $8,700 per resident 
provided 40% by endowments, 9% by rents, 32% by payments by 
residents and 19% by Grand Lodge assessment. The Old Masons' 
Home of Kentucky Inc. had 81 residents, including 1 1 couples. The 
cost was $7,700 per resident which "is less than maintaining a 
patient in a nursing home, and what is more important, most of 
our residents are happy and content." 

Five hundred and twenty-eight of the 758 pages in the 
beautifully bound proceedings comprise a complete roster by 
lodges of every mason in the jurisdiction. All officers, past masters 
and 50-year members in each lodge are specifically listed. The item 
for printing in Grand Lodge disbursements exceeded $23,000.

Our M.W. Bro. Dr. Eric Nancekivell was present at the an- 
nual communication. He was honoured by receiving the Josiah 
Hayden Drummond Distinguished Service Award and was the 
speaker at the Grand Lodge banquet. Our new Grand Represen- 
tative, R.W. Bro. Robert E. Strout, was formally presented with 
his commission. 



The Grand Master referred to problems of ambiguities and 
changes in Lodge by-laws and recommended the appointment of a 
standing committee on by-laws. Official Grand Lodge tours were 
made to Munich, headed by the Grand Master, and to Martinique, 
headed by the Deputy Grand Master. Proceeds from these tours 
were used to help finance "The Maine Mason," a Masonic 
magazine of substance of which three editions were issued and dis- 
tributed to every mason of the jurisdiction. Grand Lodge joined the 
state officers of the Knights of Columbus in a visit to the Veterans' 
Administration Hospital. 



Grand Lodge dues were increased from $2 to $3 per member. 



Grand Lodge has a "Blanket Bond" covering Lodge 
Secretaries and Treasurers for all lodge funds in their hands. There 
is also a "Blanket liability insurance," but each lodge is required to 
procure its own liability insurance for its temple buildings and 
premises. 



The Masonic Charitable Foundation has capital assets of $1.3 
million and, in addition, $235,000 is in twelve special funds. Some 
$68,000 for benevolence plus $35,000 for special purposes were dis- 
tributed. The benevolent and special accounts indicate approx- 
imately $12,000 administration charges, including a share of 
Grand Lodge office expense. The Charitable Foundation made a 
loan of $25,000 to Grand Lodge, which was repaid later in the 
year. 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence was renamed to 
that on Fraternal Relations. Requests for recognition from the 
Gran Logia de Chile and from the Grande Oriente do Brasil were 
tabled indefinitely. Proceedings of 23 jurisdictions (some for two 
years) were reviewed at some length. Canada is not included.

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the annual com- 
munication and was one of the speakers. 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Chamberlain, advocated a 
"member involvement program" in lodges, with careful meeting 
pre-planning, district travelling gavels etc., and the division of the 
rural lodges into 3 zones to which the D.G.M., S.G.W., and 
J.G.W. (in line for the office of G.M.) would give special attention 
during their year of office. His list of visitations includes two func- 
tions of the Knights of Columbus. 

One recommendation of the Administrative Committee was 
for a directive "to be followed by constituent lodges in utilizing 
local newspapers to announce future meetings." 

Current investments are utilizing short-term deposit cer- 
tificates. Much of the funds of Grand Lodge is tied up in low in- 
terest bonds whose cash value is significantly below par. 

The Masonic Foundation of Manitoba is working with the 
Grand Lodge of North Dakota to build an auditorium, designed in 
the shape of a square and compass, at the International Peace 
Gardens. Less than a quarter of the requested $300,000 capital 
from Manitoba had been raised to the date of the Foundation's 
report. 

Grand Lodge gives support to DeMolay. 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence submitted a 
summarizing 3 page report under the headings "membership", 
"concordant bodies", "benevolence", "community life" and 
"education".

Some 5,000 people attended the public ceremonies, which in- 
cluded a church service, of the special communication of April 17 
at Easton, Md. to memorialize Maryland's first Grand Master, 
M.W. Bro. Dr. John Coats, who presided at the founding of the 
Grand Lodge of Maryland April 17th, 1787, and to hold rededica- 
tion ceremonies for Coats Lodge No. 102. 

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the annual com- 
munication and spoke briefly. Special recognition was given to 
some individual blood donors — one brother had donated nine gal- 
lons. The Grand Master removed the ban on, and permitted 
membership in, the York Rite Sovereign College of North 
America. 

The Masonic Home, with 82 guests in the infirmary and 95 in 
the homes, has serious problems. The annual cost, over $1.3 mil- 
lion, is not being met by revenue. Part of its land is being sold for 
commercial use subject to clearance of zoning regulations, on 
which the civic authorities have already reversed themselves three 
times (this sounds familiar to us in Ontario). The Grand Master 
comments: "But, the monies received from this sale, if in fact it is 
consummated, cannot be used for our Homes' operation, for we 
must face the hard, cold fact that we are struggling to maintain and 
operate an aging facility, whose design leaves much to be desired 
and, possibly, in the not too distant future, will become disadvan- 
tageous to operate and the replacement would foreseeably cost 
more than the amount received in the proposed sale."

Of the special communications, 3 were in the Canal Zone dur- 
ing a visit of the Grand Master, 8 concerned with building dedica- 
tions and /or cornerstones, 1 to constitute a new lodge, 2 to unite 
existing lodges and 14 for special lodge anniversaries ranging from 
50 to 175 years. Lodge histories, prepared for these occasions, are 
printed in full. 

The Grand Master visited Chile for the 100th anniversary of 
Huelen Lodge (precedence 1876 — Massachusetts lodges are not 
numbered) and also attended the other two Chilean lodges under 
his jurisdiction. He attended a special communication of the Grand 
Lodge of Chile and was designated an honorary member. Ob- 
viously, the presence of 3 "foreign" lodges in the country has not 
led to conflict. The Grand Master was invited to have breakfast 
with the President of Chile with its opportunity to discuss 
masonry. 

Benevolent expenditures were SI. 5 million, 85% of which were 
for the masonic homes. The home is at Charlton and there was also 
a nursing home, the Whittal estate "Juniper Hall," at Shrewsbury. 
The latter property was sold during the year for $400,000. The 
staggering increases in costs are recorded in the Grand Master's 
address at the quarterly communication of March 10th. 

"In fiscal 1955, the annual per capita cost at the home was 
$1,445. In fiscal 1969, it was $4,250 and in fiscal 1975, it was 
$8,745. At Juniper Hall in fiscal 1955 the per capita cost was 
$4,035; in fiscal 1969 it had reached $9,303. But in 1975, it has es- 
calated to $16,250." 

Improvements both in financing and in accommodation are 
being made at the homes. A government grant of $3.1 million will 
be available to build 101 low-income housing units on the Charlton 
property if municipal clearance can be obtained. To balance the 
Grand Lodge budget, and allow for the home expenses, per capita 
dues were raised from $5 to $8. 

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the Stated Com- 
munication. M.W. Bro. Maxwell was installed for his third term as 
Grand Master in full ceremonial form, his traditional response to 
the final proclamation being: — 

"May the Grand Architect of the Universe pour down his 
blessings upon this Society, and enable me to discharge the great 
trust reposed in me to the honor of His name and of the Royal Art 
and may there never be wanting such to fill the Chair who shall

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the annual com- 
munication, and, "the Canadian flag was presented at the Altar 
and displayed there throughout the sessions." 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Vatter, was deeply concerned 
about the continuing loss of membership over the past 20 years. 
Michigan was the 4th state in population but 8th in Masonic 
membership. He said: "We must step back and take a long, hard 
look at ourselves and ask the question 'What is wrong with us that 
more men of good character are not knocking at our doors?'. . . I 
would caution that suspensions for non-payment of dues are only 
the end result of a gradual loss of interest undoubtedly caused by a 
lack of activity within the Lodge." 

At least one current factor in the loss must be the appalling 
degeneration of Detroit. Two resolutions were presented to 
authorize one lodge to move from Detroit to the suburbs: the sec- 
ond was approved but the first, ruled out of order, told the truth 
of the root cause: "The neighborhood in which Pillar Temple is 
located has deteriorated to such a condition that it is unsafe for our 
members to walk outside the Temple to and from the parking lot. 
There has also been destruction to cars parked and injury to 
Masons and their families in the neighborhood." 

Your reviewer had the Michigan proceedings in his briefcase 
during an hour's train ride and relieved the monotony by looking 
over the statistical tables for the 523 lodges. Some reasons for the 
Grand Master's concern came into view: There are 60 lodges listed 
as located in Detroit. Of these only 5 showed a gain in 
membership. The net loss for the 60 lodges was 1045. i.e. 32% of 
the total loss in 11.5% of the lodges (granted that the average 
membership of Detroit lodges was well above the average for the 
state). Lodge membership ranged from 2153 (1 1 lodges over 1000) 
to 26 (2 lodges). Eight raised 20 or more candidates (max. 28) but 
116 (22%) reported no raisings. Fifteen lodges reported 30 or more 



28 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

deaths (max. 54, 3 lodges over 50). Twenty-two lodges had a 
decrease of 30 or more members (max. 96 resulting from a 
"housecleaning" and suspension of 93). Thirteen lodges had less 
than 50 members and of these 2 gained, 3 stayed even and 8 lost 
membership, but only one did not meet regularly. Forty-one lodges 
held 40 or more meetings (high 70 meetings). 

These numbers are recorded in no way as a singling out of a 
jurisdiction with which our Grand Lodge has had for so many 
years, and continues to have, highly valued fraternal relations. The 
special problems in Michigan are present or potential in other 
jurisdictions and it is only by facing up to difficulties that these can 
be overcome. We would also do well to "take a long hard look at 
ourselves." 

The finances of Grand Lodge are monitored through 1 1 funds 
totalling over $22 million, the majority being associated with the 
Masonic Home. A motion to increase per capita dues to Grand 
Lodge from $3 to $5 was defeated. There were 267 residents 
(average cost $7,300) in the Masonic Home and 157 (average cost 
$10,700) in the Masonic Hospital. The business management of 
Grand Lodge is administered by a Board of Directors which meets 
monthly and whose minutes are printed in the proceedings. 

The Fraternal Relations Committee recommended a careful 
review of the status of the Grand Orient of Brazil. Grand Lodge 
policy restricts recognition to the various state Grand Lodges in 
Brazil, but "with more than 620 lodges," coupled with "115 years 
of history (which) does indeed indicate stability," further con- 
sideration is warranted. The Grand Lodge of Cuba is still active. 
Relations with the Grand Orient of Italy were suspended for one 
year due to reports of political corruption and bribery, alleged to 
be condoned by the Grand Master.

A resolution to permit alcoholic beverages in "approved 
buildings" was adopted, but another to permit this in any masonic 
premises, when leased for non-Masonic functions, was defeated. 

The Life Membership Study Committee reviewed regulations 
of several jurisdictions. They preferred the use of actuarial tables 
plus a Grand Lodge fee (substantially the same basis as ours). A 
list of guiding principles was submitted and approved by Grand 
Lodge including: life membership to be optional to the lodge: plan 
actuarially sound; life membership funds segregated from other 
lodge funds: no life memberships as gifts or honoraria. 

The Masonic Home had 170 guests in the Main Lodge (an- 
nual cost $5,087 each) and 135 in the Care Centre (annual cost 
$1 1,619 each). In spite of this near S2.5 million bill, the year ended 
with a surplus "due to the hard work of our Investment Commit- 
tee, as well as generous gifts". The Directors were, properly, con- 
cerned with the continually rapidly increasing cost, the 1976 total 
being equivalent to $47.11 from each Mason in the jurisdiction. A 
special committee, after professional advice, made extensive 
recommendations for future action. 

The Masonic Memorial Hospital Fund contributed over 
$160,000 for Cancer research (including a full Professorship) at the 
University of Minnesota. Grand Lodge also supports a "Hospital 
Representative" at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Some 700 
"Mason Patients" received attention. 

Sixteen Public School Scholarships were awarded (total 
$9,000). There were 400 applicants, first reduced to one boy and 
one girl at each local district level for scholarship selection by the 
Grand Lodge Committee.

He visited every Lodge in the state during his year of office and 
conferred the M.M. degree on 61 brethren. His recorded list 
includes 338 visitations within the state, including one record day 
when he attended separately each of ten lodges in seven com- 
munities. (Did they start at sunrise?) 

The Deputy Grand Master is an appointee of the Grand 
Master and, apparently, is not a line officer. The G.M. is suc- 
ceeded by the Grand Senior Warden. 

Twenty-four Past Grand Masters attended the Annual Ses- 
sion. Twenty-nine Past Grand Masters and 4 honourary Past 
Grand Masters are listed as living. It must be one of the largest 
Grand Easts anywhere. M.W. Bro. John H. Johnson who had 
been G.M. in 1921 died in 1976 — 54 years a Past Grand Master! 
As far as your reviewer is aware, this has only been exceeded in 
recent years by the 60-year P. G.M. record of M.W. Bro. O. R. 
Ware of Kentucky, noted last year. 

The Grand Secretary reports that "only 23 lodges" did not 
work any degrees. One Lodge conferred 100 degrees and another 
96. Membership in individual lodges ranges from 20 to 1285. 

Discipline is in the hands of the individual lodges. Five 
brothers were expelled by their lodges (not by Grand Lodge — the 
Committee on Complaints and Appeals merely "concurs with the 
decision") three of these for being in a business involving "making 
or selling whiskey," the latter, apparently including any intox- 
icating liquor. 

There were 12 girls and 10 boys (age 5-18) in the Masonic 
Home in Meridian. The interest from the Endowment Fund is 
almost sufficient to cover operating costs and all but $13,000 of a 
S60.000 per capita tax for the home from subordinate lodges was 
returned to Grand Lodge general account. The cost per child was 
only slightly over $4,000.

When Grand Lodge assembled, the Grand Lodge officers

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 31 

opened in full form in each of the three degrees. The Grand 
Master, M.W. Bro. Cook, in his address, stressed extensive 
bicentennial celebrations. Five corner stones were laid, two of 
which were at Northeast Missouri State University, where every 
building on the Kirkville campus has a Masonic cornerstone. 

The condition of individual lodges varies from excellent to 
poor. There are 80 lodges with 50 or fewer members and of these 
44 lost membership. It was recommended that some thought be 
given to consolidations for lodges which continue to show 
decreases and do not hold meetings regularly. One lodge was dis- 
ciplined for horseplay and hazing "on several occasions." The 
lodge was forbidden by the Grand Master to confer the second sec- 
tion of the third degree unless both the D.D.G.M. and D.D. Gr. 
Lecturer were present to assure proper conduct. The matter must 
have been serious because a formal statement on the solemnity and 
significance of this section was, by resolution of Grand Lodge, re- 
quired, in the future, to be read by the W.M. in all lodges im- 
mediately prior to the conferral. 

The Committee on Masonic Education spent over half its 
budget on distribution of a letter from the Grand Master to all 
Missouri Master Masons "mailed out before August primary elec- 
tion. This eloquent appeal by Grand Master Cook was surely a 
decisive element in the defeat of the proposed Constitutional 
Amendment which would have allowed tax money to be used to 
pay for various services in private and parochial schools." The 
Committee felt that this "was Masonic Education in a most impor- 
tant sense." (Would we agree?) 

Grand Lodge, after an extended debate in which the Grand 
East was divided, approved by written ballot 638 to 328 to move 
the Grand Lodge office from St. Louis to Jefferson City. 

There are 322 adults and 6 children in the Masonic Home. Of 
these 210 were in the Masonic Home Hospital, whose clinic also 
had over 6,300 outpatient registrations. "A more suitable 
location" is being sought for the children and a second "Masonic 
Home of Western Missouri" is to be established on a site already 
purchased. The total expenses for the Home for the year exceeded 
$2.33 million, less than 10% of which came from a Grand Lodge 
per capita tax of $2. 

The proceedings end with "A Masonic Review" by M.W. 
Bro. Bruce H. Hunt — probably the best Foreign Cor- 
respondence review available, comprising excerpts from various 



32 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

proceedings classified under some sixty subject headings. Our 
M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright has pride of place in the introduction 
with his appeal for high standards of admission. Canada is one of 
four jurisdictions whose taxation problems are noted. 

Here are a few other examples of interest: Under various 
"youth" headings, DeMolay and Rainbow are active in Taiwan. 
Comments on admission of 18-year-olds to the Craft depend on 
whose proceedings you are reading, some enthusiastic, some 
doubtful. The ultimate comes from Idaho where a young man 
became Master of his Lodge, High Priest of his Royal Arch 
Chapter, Associate Patron of the Eastern Star, and an officer in 
both Council and Commandery before he was 21! Such a tragic 
travesty for both the young man and his brethren leaves your 
reviewer speechless. In Wyoming, many lodges "ignored 
Leadership Workshops", so the G.M. set up "Schools of Instruc- 
tion" and ordered all lodge officers, elected and appointed, to at- 
tend or give written reasons! The Grand Master of Arkansas had 
his problems (and handled them with dignity) in trying to diffuse 
sensational journalism re the Wilber Mills affair and the necessary 
masonic action following Mills' conviction. On a more pleasant 
note, the outstanding charity of Japanese lodges, and efforts to 
retrieve masonic jewels from antique shops in Washington are 
recorded. North Carolina follows the same procedure we use when 
a ring cannot be removed before the E.A. degree. The procedure 
was ratified and approved by the Grand Master who ruled that 
"the brother in question is an E.A. without the necessity of 
healing." It is not easy to resist many more items from this review.

A special communication was held to dedicate the new Ravalli 
County Courthouse. Fourth degree Knights of Columbus served as 
Honor Guard, and Leo Revelle, District Deputy of the Knights of 
Columbus of Montana, delivered the dedicatory address. As noted 
last year, relations between Masons and Knights of Columbus are 
excellent. 

Another special communication was to rededicate the original 
Temple and public school building of Bannack Lodge No. 16 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

restored jointly by the Montana Fish and Game Commission and 
by Grand Lodge. The address by W. Bro. M. M. Jones, Grand 
Historian, referred to the turbulent early history of the Bannack 
area. It was the scene of the first recorded Masonic funeral in 
Montana Territory. This was requested, on his death-bed, by Bro. 
William H. Bell in 1862. Bro. N. P. Langford, a member of the 
Fiske expedition (and who was, in 1869, to become the fourth 
Grand Master of Montana) issued a call for Masons to assemble 
and, to everyone's surprise, 76 Master Masons turned up from the 
mining camps around. "The following day Bro. Bell was laid to 
rest with his request fulfilled." 

The Grand Masters of our four western provinces attended 
the Annual Communication. M.W. Bro. Worden referred to this in 
his "oration: — " 

"The United States of America was not founded on peace and 
harmony. Canada has not been maintained by peace and harmony. 
Only by struggle, sacrifice, debate and compromise have these two 
great countries achieved their position. . . . The same principles are 
true of our Fraternity. We have prospered or failed in direct 
proportion to our willingness to debate, to differ and to com- 
promise." 

Grand Lodge per capita dues were increased from $7.50 to 
$11.50 including $5 for the Masonic Home (previously $2.25). 

Grand Lodge has the longest "line" of officers of which your 
reviewer is aware. The original appointment is as Grand Tyler, 
with the prospect of becoming Grand Master twelve years later ( 1 3 
years in office). 

More than half of the proceedings is a complete roster of all 
Masons in the state.

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Stines, in his address, referred 
to laying cornerstones for a low-income housing facility in Central 
City, for a public library in Hooper, and for a community-owned 



34 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Medical building in Ashland. He commissioned our R.W. Bro. K. 
N. Nesbitt as the Grand Representative of Nebraska at our Grand 
Lodge. In his decisions, he reaffirmed that the powers of the 
Worshipful Master are absolute in his lodge and subject to appeal 
only to the Grand Master or to Grand Lodge, the particular case 
being the replacement of some members of a lodge committee by 
other brethren, the master being dissatisfied with previous lack of 
action. He dealt with a request for the "stand" of Grand Lodge on 
whether a black girl could petition the Order of the Rainbow for 
initiation. His reply denied Grand Lodge jurisdiction over the 
Rainbow order (except for their use of masonic temples) and then 
reaffirmed "that the denial of membership to anyone because of 
race, creed, color or national origin is contrary to the principles 
and precepts of Masonry." 

The most striking event in this jurisdiction (remarkably, not 
referred to in the Grand Master's address) was an increase in the 
endowment for the Nebraska Masonic Home from just over $5.1 
to $9.5 million as a result of a bequest of Bro. Glen W. Mclninch. 
The fund received over $4.25 million from the estate and there will 
be an additional final payment when the estate is closed. This, sure- 
ly, must be a record high for a bequest to a single masonic institu- 
tion. To' meet the operating deficit in the home. $250,000 was req- 
uisitioned and the rest invested to provide an approximately equal 
amount to mature annually from 1979 to 2000. It was stated that 
even with the revenue from $9.5 million there would be insufficient 
funds to fully meet projected annual operating costs for the home, 
which, during the current year, were $8,025 for each of the 70 resi- 
dents. Grand Lodge also operates a Home for Children jointly with 
the Eastern Star.

Grand Lodge met in the First United Church buildings in 
Campbellton and, after the usual ceremonies and receptions, par- 
ticipated in a full divine service. The Grand Chaplain, in his 
sermon, told a story of St. Francis of Assissi who invited a young 
novice to join him when he went into the village to preach. St. 
Francis stopped and chatted with every one he met on his way, 
circled the village square doing the same thing and, continuing. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 35 

returned to the monastery. The novice protested: "But Father, I 
thought we were going down to the village to preach." "We 
preached as we walked," St. Francis replied. The Grand Chaplain 
continued, "Many times we are admonished 'Practise what you 
preach.' I would like to turn this around and say. 'What you prac- 
tise, preaches."" 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Ross, made a very strong plea 
to each Freemason to work for the unity of Canada. "The ac- 
tivities of the Masonic Lodge of today are lopsided. They take too 
little account of civic duty." Later in his address he re-emphasized 
individual involvement outside as well as within the lodge. One 
lodge supports an ambulance, another gives scholarships, others 
support local service projects, "and these Lodges are healthy. The 
successful Lodges are those which project a public image that is 
respected." 

The Grand Master referred at length to a bequest of $213,000 
from the estate of Bro. W. G. Quinn. A significant portion had 
come from the sale of the donor's home. His will had suggested its 
use as a home for elderly Masons and their wives but gave Grand 
Lodge the option of sale. The funds now comprise the "W. G. 
Quinn Memorial Trust Fund." 

The Grand Master had visited widely outside, as well as 
within, New Brunswick. He refers, with especial courtesy, to his at- 
tendance at our Grand Lodge in 1976. 

At Grand Lodge, Bro. G. P. Lanyon who "served Carleton 
Union Lodge No. 8 as organist for 55 years, as well as organist for 
a number of other Lodges for in some cases as many as 50 years." 
was constituted a member of Grand Lodge with the rank of R.W. 
Past Junior Grand Warden. 

A motion increasing the per capita fee to Grand Lodge from 
$2 to $3 was defeated. 

The permission, approved in 1976 for one year, of permitting 
"semi-public" Lodge installations, if conducted by the Grand 
Master or a past Grand Master designated by him. was utilized by 
6 lodges. Apparently this was successful as the permission was ex- 
tended for an additional year. 

Grand Lodge approved a report to "exchange Fraternal 
Greetings" with the Grand Orient of Brazil and the Grand Lodge 
of the Dominican Republic. Is this the equivalent of recognition?

The Grand Master serves for two years but the Deputy Grand

There were 5 emergent communications, 4 for dedications and 
cornerstones and 1 for an exemplification by the Grand Lodge of 
Rhode Island of the first degree with all speaking parts in the 
Armenian language. 

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the annual com- 
munication. The Grand Master read an edict forbidding any dis- 
cussion relating to a civil suit between Grand Lodge trustees and 
M.W. Bro. Rutledge which was sub judice. This is a sensitive and 
unhappy matter, including a civil court confirmation during the 
meetings of the Grand Master's right to suspend M.W. Bro. 
Rutledge from Grand Lodge. 

Grand Lodge has been operating with deficits ($34,000 
budgeted deficit for 1977-8) for several years. The per capita 
assessment has finally been raised from $1.50 to $2.50, and it was 
ordered that official budgets be made available at the same time as 
the notice convening Grand Lodge. 

The Grand Master recommended approval of a "Widow's 
Pin" and this was accepted. 

There are 37 standing committees of Grand Lodge. The 
Bicentennial Committee was very active. Two Masonic plays. 
"Prelude to Victory" and "The Petition", were promoted as well 
as a bi-centennial bulletin. 3 films relating to the Revolution were 
purchased. 

The Committee on Insurance has arranged group policies for 
lodge regalia (total coverage $3 million) and is investigating group 
policies for lodge premises and temples. 

The Masonic Home has 186 guests at an average per capita 
cost of over $12,000. Endowments stand at $15.8 million. Capital

has been depleted to meet current expenses. The Foundation has 
changed its accounting methods to an accrual basis and a more 
realistic appraisal. The Home has "an excellent working 
relationship" with Burlington County Hospital. The Acacia 
Lumberton Manor provides 164 senior citizens family apartments 
and these are highly praised.

The centennial celebrations included a gala Saturday evening

Thomas was the principal speaker), an ecumenical worship service 
on Sunday, with Rabbi Celnik participating and the sermon by 
Archbishop Sanchez, and the regular sessions on the Monday and

represented. 

Fraternal relations were re-established with the Grand Lodge 
of Cosmos, Chihuahua, Mexico and their representatives warmly 
welcomed. The committee on Public Schools recommended in- 
creased scholarships, and strong active participation, both as 
Masons and as individuals, in school management and curriculum 
content. A revolving student loan fund is operative (max. $2000 at 

2'/2%). 

A history of this Grand Lodge has been prepared and was in 
the final printing stage.

nominations for next year's officers prior to the Quarterly Com- 
munication, two days later, when elections were held. R.W. Bro. 
N. W. Warren became Grand Master-elect, with his installation 
set for July 28, '76. M.W. Bro. Blight had announced, 6 months 
earlier, that he was retiring. He appointed a special committee to 
prepare for the "Grand Installation" because "one Grand Lodge 
in Australia had a segment of its ceremonies shown on television. 
Another Grand Lodge is planning extensive filming of its instal- 
lation." 

. The reports of the Grand Inspectors of Workings attest an in- 
creasingly open and public-minded attitude, e.g. in the 150th An- 
niversary Celebrations of the Belmont District there was a float 
"representing Freemasonry and indicating the manner in which it 
works for the community — as the Hawkin's Masonic Village, 
Shortland Masonic Hospital and the Newcastle Masonic Youth 
Welfare Fund." In addition many acts of real charity, "Masonry 
in action", were reported such as rewiring a widow's home; 
"erecting in 7 days a comfortable temporary dwelling" for a W.M. 
and family whose home had been destroyed by fire; and es- 
tablishing a "House without steps" for the physically handicapped. 

One decision by the Grand Master indicates increasing 
liberality: — "I now direct that, provided the law relating to lot- 
teries is fully observed, and that the lodge is satisfied that the 
dignity of the craft is not impaired, the decision as to whether a raf- 
fle may, or may not, be held is left to the discretion of the lodge." 

Building the new "Masonic Centre" at Sydney proceeded on 
schedule. The Foundation Stone was laid on May 15, 1976 "at a 
most spectacular witness and public demonstration of the strength 
of the Order". The N.S.W. mounted police and police band led a 
parade of over 6,000 Masons. The Salvation Army Sydney Band 
played the odes and hymns for the over 10,000 in attendance. A 
"fully illustrated report" was to be printed in "The N.S.W. 
Freemason". The land and buildings have a reported value close to 
AS4 million. 

A regional organization of lodges was approved after exten- 
sive debate. Cost of mailing will limit free circulation of quarter- 
ly reports to lodge secretaries. Others will have to pay a prescribed 
fee. 

The William Thompson Masonic School and Hostel is, in line 
with today's social policies, proceeding with building and setting 
up family group homes and, presumably, beginning to phase out 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 39 

the old central establishment. There is also a N.S.W. Masonic 
Youth Welfare Fund, to assist those leaving the home to get es- 
tablished in trade or business. The Masonic Hospital seems to be 
substantially financed by patients fees (over A$l million). 

Several fraternal reviews appear in each quarterly report. Two 
of our proceedings are included with specific reference to our 
Masonic Foundation (1974) and to M.W. Bro. Wright's address 
(1975).

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Markewich, said "I am a 
believer in work by and through a committee." No less than 41 
committees are listed (21 standing, 20 special) in addition to a 
commission on appeals, trustees for the Masonic Hall and Asylum 
fund, foundations for Medical Research and for Masonic 
Brotherhood, a Masonic War Veterans group and a corporation 
for the Tappan Washington Memorial. 

The Grand Master's decisions are written by the Judge Ad- 
vocate and then approved by the G.M. An interesting decision 
dealt with questions from three different lodges as to whether they 
could initiate respectively a Chinese who could speak but not read 
or write English, a Jew whose English was limited and who wished 
to use Hebrew for his instruction, and a deaf mute whose speech 
was very defective but whose reading and writing were competent. 
In each case there was the assurance that instruction was available 
within the Lodge in Chinese, in Hebrew and by a teacher of the 
deaf; the ruling: "When a brother who hails from a foreign 
jurisdiction presents himself for examination for the purpose of 
visiting one of our Lodges ... it should be anticipated that he will 
respond to questions in the language used in his mother lodge. . . . 
Thus the Lodges involved may initiate and advance the candidates 
referred to if they would be able to demonstrate proficiency in the 
work of the degrees by use of a foreign language, sign language or 
movement of the lips." Would we have been as liberal? 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Increasing emphasis is being placed on youth and on younger 
members. This seems to be bearing fruit. There were 2,984 initia- 
tions and the average age of members is decreasing, but as long as 
the age mix yields over 6,000 deaths there will continue to be 
significant annual losses in membership. 

The major supplementary activity is the Masonic Hall and 
Asylum at Utica. Fifty-one pages of the proceedings are devoted to 
the Superintendent's report and related tables. Annual expenses 
were over $6 million ($11,500 for each of the 541 guests, average 
age 83). Grand Lodge provided $700,000 from current funds. To 
meet this and other demands the per capita dues to Grand Lodge 
were increased to $3.50 per member. 

The Medal for Distinguished Achievement was awarded to 
Bro. Dr. Lowell Thomas. The 84 year old explorer and journalist 
was the speaker at the Grand Master's Dinner and his 
reminiscences make delightful reading.

Fifteen special communications were held, 3 for laying cor- 
nerstones of and 1 1 for dedicating new temples. 

To conclude the bicentennial celebrations, the Grand Master 
completed the cycle of visits to each of the communities in North 
Carolina where a lodge was in existence before or during the year 
1787-8. The Bicentennial Committee presented a lengthy report of 
the carefully planned and completed activities over the two 
masonic years involved. Special reference was made to the Grand 
Master's visit to England and his presentation there of a Joseph 
Montfort Award to R.W. Bro. Stubbs at a masonic banquet in 
London, symbolizing the unity between the United Grand Lodge 
of England and North Carolina. 

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the annual com- 
munication. Major developments at the masonic home were an- 
nounced and approved. There are 140 guests (average cost $5,100) 
and a 2-year waiting list. An increase to 180 guests was approved 
and the start of an expansion of family units, to an ultimate addi- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 41 

tion of 1 13 such units, under a scheme whereby the applicant would 
buy the unit, be assured of necessary infirmary care for life, and at 
death the unit would revert to the home for resale to the next occu- 
pant. The initial construction costs were adequately covered by a 
donation. The superintendent reported the present home as the 
"outstanding retirement and care facility in the State . . . Our 
buildings are modern, in good repair and well furnished." The 
financial statement indicates 35% of revenue from the guests, 38% 
from masonic sources, 20% from the Eastern Star and only 7% 
from endowment etc. 

There was also an important decision re the Oxford 
Orphanage (107 boys, 87 girls) to re-establish a regular school 
program at the Orphanage. For some years the youngsters had 
been going to five different public schools and subject to "all the 
transportation hazards, schedule inconveniences and oftentimes 
degrading and demoralizing experiences in the public school bus- 
ses." The increased costs will be underwritten by Grand Lodge. 
There are very good vocational study opportunities at the 
Orphanage, which has been in existence for 104 years, and, based 
on the reports, has been well maintained and modernized and ex- 
cellently staffed. 

Grand Lodge per capita dues were increased from $3.50 to 
$4.50 

Action was deferred on recognizing the Grand Orient of 
Brazil.

have seen more emphasis on the social side of Masonry, and I am 
very happy with this trend." He regretted that "our DeMolay 
Chapters in the Province have all closed." 

The Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. H. F. Sipprell, died in 
December 1976. He had served for 18 years in that office. The new 
Grand Secretary is R.W. Bro. R. A. Coombes. 

Grand Lodge, after requesting such action in 1976, approved 
increasing per capita dues from $2.50 to $3.50, together with an in- 
crease from $2 to $3 per capita for the Masonic Home. 

The Home, with 44 guests (average cost $5,400, 52% covered 
by "guest assigned pensions and contributions", had to use some 
funds from bequests to cover operating expenses. The additional 
dues now approved should assist significantly. Donations received 
for the Home included amounts from Masonic sources in Lahr, 
West Germany, where Canadian forces have their H.Q.

the jurisdiction. The Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma 
(an independent corporation) has an invested capital of $9.3 mil- 
lion. There is a Masonic Home for the Aged, two masonic 
hospitals, a Masonic Children's Home, a Masonic Home Laun- 
dry and a Masonic Homes Print Shop. At the year end there 
were 113 old folk (age up to 97, the oldest resident, 105, died dur- 
ing the year) in the home, 69 under the auspices of lodges and 44 
from chapters of the Eastern Star. The gross expenditures for the 
Homes were slightly less than $6,000 per guest. There is a long 
paragraph on miscellaneous services at the hospitals which in- 
cludes 601 letters written for patients, 1,236 cigarette lighters filled 
and the list ends with "anything the patient might need that you 
didn't have." 

The old home building has become inadequate by today's 
health and safety standards and Grand Lodge undertook in 1975 to 
provide a new home. This was to open in the Fall of 1977. To help 
pay for it a special assessment motion was passed by Grand Lodge 
of $1.50 per year from "every Master Mason on our rolls, this as- 
sessment to be discontinued when the indebtedness of the building 
is completed."

a Special Communication of Grand Lodge with 158 brethren 
present. The E.A. degree (the Grand Master being personally in 
charge) and F.C. degree were given in the afternoon and, after 
dinner, the M.M. degree in the evening. The last occasion for this 
event in this jurisdiction had been in 1965. The report to Grand 
Lodge of the Instructor of Ritualistic Work indicated that "Bro. 
Dixon was the recipient of some of the finest degree work that has 
ever been conferred in Philadelphia." 

As would be expected, Bicentennial celebrations were very 
prominent. The proceedings include the texts of special addresses 
given, at each quarterly communication, concerning Masons who 
were leaders in revolutionary days, and also the Grand Master's 
numerous addresses on related subjects. 

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the quarterly 
communication of December 1. The Grand Master, R.W. Bro. 
McCain, attended our annual communication in July. 

In spite of a $13,000 cost for each of its 505 residents, the 
Masonic homes showed an operating surplus of over $600,000. 
Just half the cost was derived from "guest service revenue". An 
accrual basis of accounting had been in effect for a year. The 
"general fund balance" is close to $20 million. Equity and trust 
fund balances transferred from Grand Lodge had been $41 million. 
Thirty pages of the proceedings give the highly detailed report of 
the committee (e.g. the orchard produced 14,423 bushels of apples, 
the garden 28 varieties of vegetables including 28,656 lb. tomatoes. 
4,417 lb. cucumbers etc. etc., alongside records of 303 inpatients in 
the hospital, 38,502 prescriptions, 12,751 physiotherapy treat- 
ments). Twenty-nine more pages detail the financial accounts. It is 
quite an operation! Extensive modern additions are being made to 
the home facilities. The cornerstone was laid. Occupancy of the 
new quarters is scheduled for 1977. 

There are 18 children in the Masonic Children's Homes. 
Public schools are now being used for their instruction.

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the Annual Com- 
munication. 

Masonry in Quebec is facing two major problems, that of ex- 
istence in a French-speaking society and of a near-crisis financial 
situation from taxes and expenses of the Montreal Masonic Tem- 
ple, in which the Grand Lodge offices are located. 

A few excellent lodges, based on the French protestant com- 
munity, and working in French, have been operative for many 
years. The new situation flows from a combination of decreasing 
English-speaking population in all but major centres, and the 
pleasant necessity of recognizing increased Masonic interest 
among French-speaking Canadians, combined with reduction of 
some of the old religious antagonisms. Translations of the ritual 
into French are essential and are being prepared. 

The financial situation of the Montreal Masonic Temple is 
highly critical. Your reviewer has been advised that the 1978 taxes 
are approximately $120,000. More than half the capital of Grand 
Lodge has been used to provide "mortgages" for the Temple, to 
meet past needs and deficits. A "Save the Temple" fund is active. 
Masonry is going to be very much more expensive for its members 
in Quebec in the future. Substantial increases in all Grand Lodge 
fees were approved, including raising the per capita to Grand 
Lodge from $2 to $5. 

Albion Lodge No. 2, Quebec, celebrated its 225th anniver- 
sary. Reports from the Quebec and Three Rivers District refer to 
increasing French-speaking and genuinely bilingual membership. 
Other non-Montreal Districts lack new members badly. 

Your reviewer, having been a member of lodges in this 
jurisdiction for many years, is well aware that Masonry in Quebec 
has faced serious problems in the past. It is his belief that there re- 
mains the vitality to survive the challenge now confronting it.

At the special communication M.W. Bro. Stephenson, having 
been re-elected, was proclaimed successively in the east, west and 
south, with respective anthems "Lord God our Master bless", "In 
wishes true and hearty", and "Great Architect to Thee we raise" 
by the Masonic choir. Other Grand Lodge officers were then in- 
vested. 

In October, the Grand Master paid an 18 day Masonic visit to 
Papua New Guinea, attending 6 of his own lodges and one under 
the English Constitution, where he was officially commissioned to 
represent M.W. Bro. H. R. H. the Duke of Kent. The distance and 
difficulty of travel to these lodges can be "staggering". Two 
brethren are "frequently faced with an all day boat or outrigger 
canoe trip", another "travels over a mountainous, winding dirt 
road with numerous hair-pin bends". The W.M. of Kavieng No. 
487 travels 170 miles to get to his lodge. The G.M. reports there 
are "only 3 Nationals" who are Freemasons in Papua. "The local 
Brethren --- will be generally happy and pleased to welcome the 
National into our ranks, but it has problems we must try to sur- 
mount. --- I am fully convinced the future of the Craft in these 
areas will depend on encouraging --- the National to join our 
fraternity." 

One interesting regulation in Queensland appears to be that 
lodges require "permission to ballot" from the Board of General 
Purposes. The Board reported permission granted for 720 ballots 
for initiation, 388 for affiliation and 6 refusals. 

A major event was the completion, and dedication of Masonic 
quarters in the Stones Corners Temple. Almost unbelievably, the 
cost, A$674,420, was well below the approved estimate of 
A$800.000. 

The Masonic Homes are the major charity. There were 363 
residents in March. Medals are awarded to lodges and brethren 
who make specified donations. There is real demand for space, e.g. 
the last quarterly report indicates "24 on the waiting list for urgent 
admission and 174 approved for admission when needed." 

The Queensland Legislature passed "An Act to amend The 
United Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Accepted Masons of 
Queensland Trustees Act of 1942" to update the legal basis for 
managing the Home endowment and other trust funds of Grand 
Lodge. Required appropriate changes were made in the constitu- 
tion.

The semi-annual communication was the last, after a 78 year 
stay, in the old Freemasons Hall which had become a Scottish Rite 
Cathedral and was now being replaced by a new Cathedral. The 
cornerstone of this had been laid by Grand Lodge October 31, 1976 
with 111. Bro. George Newbury 33° as speaker. The Grand 
Historian gave a "Farewell address to 127 Dorrance Street" trac- 
ing the history of Masonic quarters in Providence since the 
founding of the Grand Lodge in 1791, a story which included fire 
and hurricanes as well as major Masonic events. The communica- 
tion closed with the joining of hands and the singing of Auld Lang 
Syne. 

Masonic quarters in the new Scottish Rite Cathedral at 
Cranston were dedicated on January 1 1, 1977 and the annual com- 
munication held there May 16. Our M.W. Bro. B. B. Foster at- 
tended. The Grand Master had emphasized Masonic education 
very strongly throughout his term. The "Rhode Island 
Freemason" has been established (cost S8.000 for the year) and a 
voluntary $2.00 addition when paying lodge dues suggested to 
finance it. The per capita tax remains at $4.00. Use of slides with 
lodge lectures "under the strict supervision of the Grand Lecturer" 
was discussed and is on the agenda for possible action by Grand 
Lodge in 1978. The Education Committee met 12 times during the 
year. 178 brethren attended one workshop! Substantial progress 
was made with the Grand Lodge Library and museum. 

New dies were cut for Masonic medals to reduce cost, the 
G.M. reporting "with our jewelry background we found that our 
medals were far over-priced". The accounts include "Masonic 
Home" funds, but there appears to be no Masonic Home. $20,000 
from the fund was paid to "beneficiaries".

Our M.W. Bro. E. W. Nancekivell attended the annual com- 
munication and, by resolution of Grand Lodge, was given the rank 
of Honorary Past Grand Master. 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Gwinn, referred to the 
problems of rural lodges: — "The decline in membership in the 
past few years relates to population shifts from rural to urban 
areas. This presents our greatest problem. How can we adjust to 
this population shift? We are going to lose some rural lodges. I 
think the centres of greater population should make a determined 
effort to increase their membership by making the general public 
more aware of the activities of Masonic Lodges and that masons 
from rural areas taking up residence in the larger centres should be 
made to feel welcome by the lodges." 

Several constitutional amendments were considered. Those 
approved included province-wide concurrent jurisdiction for lodges 
and increased per capita dues from $2.50 to $4.00. A motion to 
reduce the age for initiation from 21 to 18 was defeated. 

The Committee on the Condition of Masonry reports 125 
lodges in excellent or good condition and 50 in fair or poor condi- 
tion, but are less optimistic for the future. A quick scan of the 
statistical tables indicates 20 lodges with 30 or fewer members and 
one lodge with only 18. This lodge held 5 meetings with an average 
attendance of 5 before amalgamation with a lodge in an adjoining, 
but still small, municipality. 

There were 42 benevolent and benefit grants totalling over 
$43,000. Individual amounts ranged from $3,600 to $100, so ob- 
viously each received careful consideration. The Freemasonry and 
Youth Endowment Fund gave two university bursaries, some essay 
prizes and ran a camp, operated by the Y.M.C.A., the highlight 
being a 3-day canoe trip to Prince Albert National Park.

The statistical table on membership contains a remembrance 
of things past. The years 1942-46 numbers for "subscribing 
members" have the notation "Pt. Darwin Lodge 41 (125 members) 
in enforced recess until 8th November 1946 due to enemy action." 

Major additions were begun to the Nursing Home, and new 
Hostel and Day Hospital facilities in the Masonic Memorial Vil- 
lage (operated by a corporate body). The government Department 
of Social Security had approved a subsidy of AS1.7 million 
payable in July 1978. Meanwhile extra per capita dues of A$4 had 
raised A$80,000 to get formal planning underway and over 
A$ 11 8,000 was contributed by various benefactors to the related 
funds. The Grand Master said: "On the completion of this 
programme the Village will rank with the best in the country and 
will stand as a monument to Freemasonry in this Jurisdiction." 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 51 

Remarkably, the Village showed, for the year, a nominal excess 
revenue over expenditures. The revenues included AS346.000 in 
government subsidies. The Balance Sheet records assets of AS3.25 
million of which 80% is fixed. The A$4 special per capita for the 
village was reduced to A$2 but the regular per capita for Grand 
Lodge was increased from A$8 to A$10. 

The Grand Master also reported: "I am not sure whether it is 
generally known that the Rotary Clubs of Darwin (proposed) that 
they be granted permission to build units for the aged on the same 
property as our own units — the whole cost to be their respon- 
sibility, and on completion . . . hand them over to us to be ad- 
ministered with our own establishment." The completion, opening, 
tenanting and handing over was finalized in October, 1976. 

A "Door Knock" appeal to aid the Blind Welfare Association 
raised A$ 154,000. "Our participation in the appeal has gone a long 
way to refuting the criticism . . . that our charitable work is too in- 
sular, being confined only to masonic charities." 

The Grand Master suggested a committee to reactivate in- 
terest in youth organizations and proposed special funds for the 
1984 centenary of the Grand Lodge and for a Temple Fund to as- 
sist constituent lodges with repair and maintenance of their 
premises.

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Wylie, died on June 21, the 
Deputy Grand Master becoming Acting Grand Master for the 
remainder of term. A special communication of Grand Lodge was 
held June 22nd to attend the funeral and conduct a Masonic Com- 
mittal service. 

There were 9 other special communications. 2 associated with 
the bi-centennial, 6 dedications and cornerstones and 1 for the 
"foundation stone" of a new Scottish Rite Temple. The Acting 
Grand Master attended our annual communication in Toronto in 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

1976. He also dedicated a bicentennial monument in the Grand 
Lodge Building in the state capitol, Columbia, and was invited to 
address the legislative assembly. 

Grand Lodge rejected a 3-year trial of statewide concurrent 
jurisdiction and held over till 1977 a proposed increase in Grand 
Lodge per capita from $1.50 to $2.00. 

There were 20 Masonic trials. One seems remarkable in that 
the charge was not attending lodge following receipt of a normal 
lodge summons. The trial commission properly held that no 
Masonic offence had been committed and the lodge appealed! The 
committee" on grievances and appeals fully concurred with the trial 
commission and their report was in terms to settle the issue beyond 
question. Meanwhile, the accused brother (legitimately, in your 
reviewer's opinion) decided he wasn't wanted and was eventually 
suspended N.P.D. 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations recommended no ac- 
tion on a request to recognize the Grand Orient of Brazil. The 
Fraternal Correspondent presented "A review of symbolic 
Freemasonry in certain representative jurisdictions" confined to 18 
of the United States.

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Galligher, who made "A Year

wood in the woodbox than when he first started to take from it". 
That fairly well sums up his administration for the year. 

The Grand Master granted, by telephone, an "irregular" re- 
quest for reading a petition at a special lodge communication. A 
member of the armed forces and severe time pressures were in- 
volved. The G.M. admits "more time and consideration might 
have resulted in the dispensation being rejected". He suggested 
material for use at "Enquirer's Nights" in lodges.

Several constitutional amendments were received for action in

ing disqualification of anyone who was "a proprietor or vendor at 
a place where malt or spirituous liquors are sold as a beverage": 
and for increasing Grand Lodge per capita dues to $5 from S4.

The principal business was the Grand Installation. The Grand 
Masters of all, and the Deputy Grand Masters of all but one. of the 
other Australian Grand Lodges were present. There were 69 
brethren in these visiting delegations - a remarkable demonstration 
of interest and solidarity. 

In his Final address M.W. Bro. Abra said: — 

"I believe with Ruskin that we are not sent into this world to 
do anything into which we cannot put our hearts. We have certain 
work to do for our bread, and this is to be done strenuously: other 
work to be done for our delight, and this is to be done heartily : 
neither to be done by halves or shifts, but with a will." 

The new Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Harnett, was installed 
with traditional proclamations and fanfares.

Referring to the Bicentennial, the Grand Master, M.W. Bro. 
Buck, said "Our celebration was low-key. There were no spec- 
tacular parades or noisy fireworks. We simply fostered a quiet 
determination to uphold our system of government with honour 
and to resist those forces which have sought to undermine it of late. 
We have no fear of subversive forces if our brethren will remain 
awake and vigilant. Our heritage of freedom was not attained easi- 
ly, and that freedom was not really free, but must be maintained by 
constant vigilance." 

The Grand Master made a number of recommendations, in- 
cluding initiating a Lodge of Research and changing the title of 
"District Chairmen" to that of "District Deputy Grand Masters." 
Boih of these were rejected by the Commiuee on Jurisprudence. 
Even the Appeals and Grievances Committees approval of the 
G.M.'s action re one U.M.C. charge was defeated by Grand 
Lodge. There was obviously much so-called "democracy in action" 
— a lot of it concerned with saying "no" to proposals such as per- 
mitting dual membership even outside of Tennessee and for in- 
creasing Grand Lodge dues from $2.25 to $2.75 per year. 

No less than 29 trial commissions reported. The names of the 
accused Brethren are listed even when the verdict was "not guilty." 
Two of the latter cases were appealed to Grand Lodge! 

The Advancement of Freemasonry and Masonic Education 
Committee is very active. The Director made 209 visits for the 
promotion of masonic education. Officer training workshops were 
held in all 30 masonic districts. Two hundred and twenty-four 
lodges, 4 out-of-state lodges and 1 , 1 65 brethren attended. The "Dr. 
Joseph C. Mobley Award" is presented to the Lodge with "the 
most comprehensive program of masonic education."

"Special Representations" of Grand Lodge included 9 dedica- 
tions. 14 cornerstones (9 non-masonic buildings) and 6 to con- 
stitute new lodges. The Grand Master presided at 7 of these occa- 
sions. Texas follows the Scottish tradition and Past Grand Masters 
have Right Worshipful rank, only the Grand Master is Most 
Worshipful. 

The Grand Orator's (R.W. Bro. C. A. Barrow's) address was 
much shorter (and much better) than others your reviewer has 
looked at. Here are some quotes: 

"One lesson that stands out sharp and dear throughout 
the pages of history is that freedom must be continual!) 
earned. --- Unlike the Pyramids, the monument* ul the spirit 
will not stand untended. --- The fact that our forefathers 
pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, and 
most lost all but the latter, --- does not guarantee survival of 
these principles of freedom if we cease paying our tithes of 
devotion. 

We have opened up our system in our zeal for a free 
society and for freedom - but we have opened it up to the point 
where an issue-oriented minority can short-circuit 
representative government and delay, obstruct, or paralyze 
the decision-making process. In our thrust toward an open 
system, we must not lose the capacity to act. --- In our desire 
to create a society wherein no one can abuse authority, we 
must not create one wherein no one can exercise authority. 



Our Constitution declares and promises that all men are 
created equal. True, all individuals are equal in intrinsic worth 
and are entitled to equal access to rights and privileges. But 
equal worth does not translate to equal ability and equal 
access does not equate to equal achievement. Unless we 
cultivate excellence and reward performance, there will soon 
be no opportunity." 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master emphasized the bicentennial in his 
messages in the 6 issues of the Texas Freemason (reduced from 12 
issues because of cost), combined with appeals for a return to 
moral leadership. He issued a special Proclamation for "Public 
Schools Week", strictly limiting use of Lodge rooms for the week 
to "called meetings for programs in observance of Public Schools 
Week", the sole permitted exceptions being stated meetings and 
funerals. 

Your reviewer is impressed with the longevity of Texas 
masons. The Grand Master approved 1,572 50-year service 
awards, as many as 1 1 in a single Lodge. Surely, this must involve 
a major catch-up. There was a workshop on Masonic funerals. 

Some $2 million was raised as a development fund for the 
Masonic Home and School during the past 3 years. The 
endowment stands at $8.7 million, total assets over $13 million. 
Expenditures for the year's operations were $1.3 million. The 
School has 7 "cottages", a registration of 84 children and is fully 
accredited by the Texas Education Agency from kindergarten 
through grade 12. The School band played at Grand Lodge. 
Expenditure of $335,000 is reported donated to the Home for Aged 
Masons "for the care of our widows". 

The Fraternal Reviews are by R.W. Bro. Brannon P.G.M. 
65 jurisdictions were reviewed. In his foreword he writes "Perhaps 
if we would become true Masons, our neighbors and friends, who 
watch us each day, might be seeking what Masonry has imparted 
to our hearts. We believe that this trend of losses will turn to gains 
when we become members and not card-carriers." Canada 1975 
receives a generous review with quotes from M.W. Bro. Wright's 
address at the banquet.

In spite of continually declining membership, which shows no 
signs of abating, this Grand Lodge is intensely active in good 
works. Thus benevolent grants reported throughout the year were 
A$74,000, the largest individual grant of A$2,000 for "care.

education and maintenance of a Brother's four dependent 
children" and numerous other sizable grants for equally worthy 
purposes. There were also 10 interest-free loans, several of 
A$5,000 for such purposes as "to finance home additions for the 
installation of dialysis equipment" and "to reduce outstanding 
mortgage of a widow with dependent son." The Royal Freemasons 
Homes and the Freemasons Hospital were fully supported (5,274 
patients "treated," and 4,390 operations). No less than 50 
"Freemasons scholarships" were awarded (there were 222 
applications) in addition to 7 other named scholarships, some 
tenable for 4 years. The Board of General Purposes also approved 
numerous grants and interest-free loans re specific masonic temple 
construction or improvement projects. 

At the quarterly communication of March the retiring Grand 
Master, M.W. Bro. Risson, announced a very long list of 
"promotions", that is, appointment to past rank in 8 different 
levels, the highest being that of 4 past Grand Wardens to become 
past Deputy Grand Masters. The list is obviously one of upward 
flow with continuing service. 

Following his installation and before the installation and 
investiture of other Grand Lodge officers, the new Grand Master, 
M.W. Bro. James, addressed Grand Lodge. He quoted from Rabbi 
Sanger: 

"Modernism is a kind of idolatry, urging constantly more 
rights, bigger claims, more services and more protection 
against adversity. The time has come to restrain private 
appetites and renew a public ethic — call it a "work ethic," 
call it "honesty," call it what you will, but we sorely need 
it." 

At the quarterly communication in June, amendments were 
passed to the Constitution specifying age limits beyond which 
brethren could not be appointed to the Board of General Purposes 
or to certain offices, the object being to assure turnover, and ad- 
vancement of younger members. 

The quarterly communication in September includes presen- 
tation of the report from the 109th annual general meeting of the 
Royal Freemasons' Homes of Victoria. There are 620 residents, 
divided 286 in the "Homes," 201 in "Centennial House." and 133 
in "independent units." There were significant "operating 
deficits," being expenditure "not covered by Government deficit 
financing," which was substantially covered by Grand Lodge 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

grants, donations and bequests. A motion to increase Grand Lodge 
dues from A$2 to AS2.50 per half-year was defeated. 

The quarterly communication in December saw the re- 
nomination of the Grand Master for a second term. In his address 
he commended work of committees on Masonic Temples, on con- 
stitutional changes and on public relations. He advocated "happy, 
friendly, sociable gatherings" after lodge and cautioned against 
"orators, who usually have nothing to say but cannot help saying 
it." 

One item in the statistics surprised your reviewer — a listing 
among "exclusions" (i.e. suspensions) of a few brethren who "have 
been excluded by the United Grand Lodge of Mark Master 
Masons of Victoria for non-payment of dues and are automatically 
excluded from their respective Craft Lodges under the provisions 
of Rule 184A of the Book of Constitutions." 

Twenty-two Grand Lodges were reviewed in the Report on 
Correspondence, some for two years. Canada is not included.

The above statistics are from a summarizing table. A com- 
puter is in process of "normalization" in the Grand Secretary's of- 
fice. The computer's figures do not agree with the above. 

There were 4 "special communications", 2 to institute, and 2 
to constitute new lodges and 2 "occasional communications" for 
dedications. Four new lodges in 2 years is a sign of vitality. 

Our M.W. Bro. B. B. Foster attended the annual communica- 
tion. 

The outstanding address was given by the Governor of 
Virginia, Bro. Mills E. Godwin Jr., before presentation to him of 
the John Blair medal. Here are two excerpts from it. 

"Set forth in the Declaration of Independence, one of the 
foundation documents, is a principle that among man's God- 
given rights is not happiness but is a pursuit of happiness. The 
opportunity to seek after it, the opportunity to earn it, the op- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 59 

portunity to have it as a part of your life because you are will- 
ing to work to want it. But our forbears understood that only 
the pursuit and not the end product was guaranteed. And hap- 
piness we have to achieve for ourselves. It is something that 
we earn by our own efforts, by the fruits of our own labors, by 
the devotion to ideals and convictions and high purposes that 
guide us. No government can guarantee to its citizens hap- 
piness at all. It is not a commodity to be divided up if it were 
even in ample supply. But it is an achievement that can be 
earned." 

"Many of our forebears and forefathers faced social and 
economic conditions far more rigorous than those that anyone 
in America faces today. They were beset in those days by the 
hostile Indians, by the constant and continuing threat of star- 
vation, by land that had to be cleared, by roads that had to be 
cut, --- by land that had to be set aside and cultivated as it was 
farmed. And yet there was no thought, as they did so, that acts 
against the law perpetrated against their number would be 
forgiven. --- They believed, as you and I believe, that a man 
ought to be responsible for his own acts, and. for the trangres- 
sions of the law, that he should be held accountable and 
brought to the bar of justice. --- They knew that work was one 
of the ingredients that would make life successful and make 
liberty a reality. And whatever happened to the notion, 
gentlemen, that governments like families live within their 
means and the alternative thereto was the road to the 
poorhouse and inevitable bankruptcy. Those early Americans 
knew well that they had to make ends meet by their own 
resources, largely by the labors of their own hands and cer- 
tainly of their own minds." 

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Delano, emphasized the value 
of youth organizations and stressed the importance of the public 
image and public relations of Masonry. 

The Grand Master took the unusual step of changing the deci- 
sion of what, obviously, had been a most difficult Masonic trial. 
An original expulsion had been appealed and a retrial with change 
in venue ordered, to provide "an emotional climate unfettered by 
popular opinion". This retrial ordered a reprimand only. The 
Grand Master set aside both verdicts and ordered indefinite 
suspension. 

Grand Lodge approved statewide concurrent jurisdiction and 
permission for collective balloting in lodge. 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

At the end of 1976 there were 68 guests in the Masonic Home 
(average cost of $9,000). There were 4 marriages in the Home dur- 
ing the year. Patient care was 6.466 patient-days, about 80% in the 
infirmary care centre and 20% in hospital. There was surplus 
revenue over expenses approximating the Grand Lodge assessment 
of $200,000. The endowment capital is over $7 million. 

Fraternal reviews, written by the Grand Secretary, for 41 
jurisdictions are in the proceedings. Six Canadian Grand Lodges 
are reviewed, but our Grand Lodge is not included.

The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Sandoz, visited 18 lodges and 
1 Masonic Club in Alaska in July and returned to Anchorage in 
February for an "all Alaska" meeting. The G.M. recognizes "Life 
is a challenge in Alaska and so is Masonry. The transitory popula- 
tion, distances and isolation pose very real problems, but. 
somehow, they recognize problems as a challenge, and so the\ 
work at them and thus their problems become opportunities --- I 
have a deep appreciation of the indomitable spirit of Alaska 
Masonry - a spirit that will, one day, culminate in a Grand Lodge 
of Alaska." 

A dispensation was granted to form Adak Lodge at Adak, 
Alaska, a Naval Station in the far Aleutians. There were 22 
charter members. A Masonic Club has existed at Adak since 1943. 



There were 5 special communications for laying cornerstones. 
A past Grand Master of Japan attended the annual communica- 
tion and the Japanese National Anthem was played and the flag 
presented with those of the U.S. and Canada. 

The Grand Master wrote to a Potentate that the application 
for "a Class H" (general?) liquor license for a Shrine Club and 
Temple "exceeded all proper rule of propriety", placed the Temple 
"on a collision course with the Grand Lodge" and made him "sub- 
ject to unmasonic conduct". Your reviewer did not find any 
further reference to the matter in the proceedings. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 61 

The Grand Master agreed that funds derived from a "Bingo" 
at Nome, Alaska could be used in part "to buy Christmas 
packages for non-Masonic needy families". This was overruled by 
the Committee on Jurisprudence who held that the Code required 
use of special funds to be restricted solely for "a Masonic purpose" 
and that Grand Lodge had previously ruled that "a Christmas 
party for children" was not "a Masonic purpose". Your reviewer 
would hope, with respect, that such a narrow view would be 
modified in the future. The contrast with Florida (q.v.) is extreme. 

The "Washington Masonic Code" is being rewritten. A draft 
was published and will be considered next year. 

The new Grand Master was installed at a public ceremony just 
before the close of Grand Lodge. 

The Masonic Home endowment is over $8.3 million. There 
were 142 residents, average cost $6,325, and the Home had a sur- 
plus of $190,000 for the year. It is obviously very well run. 

There are excellent reviews of "Frater Jurisdictions". Canada 
1976 receives generous treatment with extensive quotations from 
M.W. Bro. Nancekivell's address and from the report of the Com- 
mittee on the Condition of Masonry.

The first page of the proceedings is a form for lodge 
secretaries to acknowledge receipt of the proceedings. 

Special communications were held on Independence Rock for 
bicentennial celebrations and also for laying cornerstones for one 
church and for one elementary school. 

The funeral and memorial services were revised (full texts in 
proceedings) and now include appropriate wording when crema- 
tion is to be, or has been, carried out. The new text was proba- 
tionally adopted for one year. 

The committee on Fraternal Correspondence and Recogni- 
tion expressed concern over the masonic situation in Brazil and in 
Italy. The Grand Secretary used masonic contacts to confirm that 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

two "kidnapped" children were, in fact, now with their father at his 
estate in his "South American country."' This is a classic case of 
estrangement and conflicting laws as to custody. The masonic role 
was merely to confirm that the children were alive and well. 

As part of the 6-year Grand Lodge "line." the D.G.M.. 
S.G.W.. J.G.W. and S.G.D. are each allotted one-quarter of the 
state, within which they are the Grand Master's representative. 
The incoming Grand Master is. by rotation, therefore well ac- 
quainted with his whole jurisdiction. 

Nearly half the proceedings consists of a complete roster by 
lodges of all masons in the state. 



APPENDIX "A" 

ADDRESS BY M.W. BRO. J. C. RASOR 

AT THE 

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

Held in the Canadian Room 

Royal York Hotel, Toronto, Ontario 

JULY 19th, 1978 

THE GRAND MASTER: Eric W. Nancekivell will 
introduce to you our guest of the evening. 

M.W. BRO. NANCEKIVELL: 

Most Worshipful Grand Master, distinguished Head Table 
and my Brethren: At the Conference of Grand Masters of Masons 
in North America in Washington this last February, the key note 
speaker was Bro. Jerry Rasor, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge 
of Ohio. Present at that conference were our Grand Master. 
Deputy Grand Master, Grand Secretary and myself. We were all 
thrilled and delighted with his address and unanimous in asking 
him to be the guest speaker at this Annual Communication, to 
which he readily and graciously agreed. 

I should like to tell you a little about our speaker of the 
evening. Bro. Rasor is a graduate of Ohio State University where 
he majored in radio-television speech. He is a broadcaster 
employed by the Outlet Broadcasting Company and a member of 
the staff of W.C.M.H.-T.V. Channel 4 in Columbus. Ohio. In 
other words, he is a communicator and he certainly can 
communicate. 

He was the Worshipful Master of Lockbourne Lodge in 1968 
(as recently as 1968) and his father before him was Master of the 
same Lodge in 1951. In the York Rite he became a Royal Arch 
Mason in 1962, Royal and Select Master in 1965 and a Knights 
Templar the same year. In the Scottish Rite he was coroneted 
Honorary 33rd Degree Sovereign Grand Inspector General in 
1976. He is an active member of the Shrine and of other Masonic 
and attached Bodies. He was installed Grand Master of the Grand 
Lodge of Ohio in October 1977. You know they have a quarter of a 
million Masons in Ohio. This is the largest Grand Lodge 
numerically on this continent and what a distinction that is to be 
chosen Grand Master from two hundred and fifty thousand 
Masons. Certainly the pinnacle of a very distinguished Masonic 
career. 



2 APPENDIX "A" 

It is as such that I present to you, dare I say it, rasor sharp 
and rasor keen, Bro. Jerry C. Rasor, the Grand Master of the 
Grand Lodge of Ohio, an ardent, enthusiastic Mason, an expert 
communicator, a charming personality and our guest speaker. 

M.W. BRO. J. C. RASOR: 

That in itself is a very hard act to follow, its one of the finest 
obituaries I have ever heard. 

I am delighted to be here this evening with you. Most 
Worshipful Grand Master, your distinguished Head Table and all 
of the Masons in this room. Its a real thrill to come via Allegheny 
Airlines to Toronto — and make it. (Laughter). 

Yes, I do work in television in Columbus. I work for the 
National Broadcasting Company at the network affiliate and if 
any of you follow the ratings you know that NBC is now number 
three behind CBS and ABC so I'm really not accustomed to 
microphones such as this. We are down to a tin can and a string in 
Columbus. But it is a distinct opportunity to be invited here this 
evening. This is my first trip to Toronto and to this province and I 
was able to see some of the city coming in from the airport this 
afternoon. It is a beautiful, beautiful city and I would like to come 
back at some later date and see more of it. But I am here tonight to 
tell you something about what we are doing in Ohio in 
Freemasonry this year. When I was at the Grand Masters' 
Conference in Washington D. C. in February, Bro. Bob Coley, 
down there was elected chairman of the entire Conference of 
Grand Masters of North America. When you saw Bob stand up 
you can readily see that he is a rather imposing man. I chose that 
word very carefully my Brethren. He is a very, very imposing guy 
and a nice guy. A very very gentle person although he is large in 
stature. We were wondering when he was elected the Chairman of 
the Conference in Washington how he would address the chair with 
him in it. (Laughter) — you're way ahead of me my Brethren — 
and a friend of mine said, "With Bob in the chair I will address it 
very very carefully." And so we do that. 

You know, the theme of that Conference in February, in 
Washington, D. C. was "Quo Vadis Freemasonry" — whither 
goest thou Freemasonry. Now I am not a student of Latin and so 
that caught me a little off base when I was asked to speak to that 
particular gathering, so I went to a good friend of mine who is a 
student of Latin. He also happens to be a Catholic Priest. He is a 
member of the Catholic Hierarchy in Columbus. He is Monsignor 



APPENDIX "A" 3 

of our largest Catholic Cathedral, St. Josephs. He and I belonged 
to the Kiwanis in Columbus and he kids me a lot about being active 
in the Masons and I kid him right back about being a member of 
the Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. He said, I 
understand that you are going to Toronto to talk to a lot of 
Masons. I said that's right, a big audience, maybe a couple of 
thousand Masons will be in the room the night I speak. He said. "I 
want to give you a story, Jerry, that you must tell all those Masons 
in Canada and please give me credit. Tell them that Father 
Murphy gave you the story. So here's Father Murphy's story, let 
me try it out on you. It's about a Catholic Priest named, of all 
things, Father Murphy, a very fine Catholic Priest who was taking 
an airplane trip and one of his first trips via plane. He got on the 
plane, sat down in his seat near the window and just before take-off 
a very hippy looking character came in and sat right down beside 
the Priest. Now I mean, this guy had the hair to the shoulders, the 
beads, the ear rings, the whole deal. You know what I mean. The 
Priest looked at this young man and he thought sometime during 
this trip I'm going to find an opportunity to talk to him, to say 
something to him that will perhaps change the manner in which he 
is living his life. So, the plane took off and you know how it works. 
The first thing that happened after take off a beautiful stewardess 
came down the aisle with drinks and she stopped at these two seats. 
She said, "Father would you like a drink?" He said. "No thank 
you." She turned to the hippy and she said, "How about you?" 
And he said, "Yeah, I'll have two double martinis," and he drank 
them, one right after the other and the Priest looked at the kid and 
frowned. Next thing that happened another beautiful stewardess 
came down the aisle. This time with magazines. He said, "No 
thank you, I'm reading the Scriptures." She turned to the hippy 
and said. "How about you?" And he said, "Yeah. I'll have the 
latest issue of Playboy Magazine." He opened it right to the centre 
spread. Now I've never seen that but I understand it is rather 
interesting. (Laughter). Sure enough at that moment, the hippy 
turned to the Priest, frowned and said, "Pardon me sir. do you 
know what causes arthritis?" And the Priest thought that's not 
much of an opening but it's probably the only one I'm going to get 
so I'll take it. So he looked the young man right in the eye and 
raised his hand and he said, "Young man, I am not a medical man 
but in my humble opinion, arthritis is caused by filling one's mind 
with pornographic thoughts, by drinking too much of alcoholic 
beverages and in general leading a life of debauchery; I think that's 
what causes arthritis." The kid looked right at him and said, 
"Hmmmm, say's here in this magazine that the Pope has 
arthritis." (Laughter). 



4 APPENDIX "A" 

I've been talking to the Bishop here sitting to my immediate 
right at the Head Table. I didn't tell him that I live in a very small 
town in Ohio. A little rural village called Commercial Point. Two 
hundred hearty souls live in my home town. I've lived there all my 
life, I love it. But you know Bishop, in my little town we have just 
one church and we all belong to it. It happens to be a United 
Methodist Church. We had a young Preacher there not too long 
ago. — Someone at the head table said, "Amen." Thank you 
Brother. — We had a very young and aggressive minister who was 
in our little church and before he moved to bigger and better 
things, he — we loved the guy, we loved the guy — was very very 
enthusiastic about his job, but you know in a little church, the 
Preacher does everything. He led the choir, he played the piano, he 
ran off the bulletins, he did everything that had to be done. In 
running off the bulletins, he became a little confused one Sunday 
and I saved this bulletin as a souvenir. This is true, this really 
happened. In our little church, we have a group called the "Little 
Mothers Club". Young married gals belong to it; you know. So in 
the bulletin one Sunday he wanted to announce a meeting of the 
club but it came out like this in the bulletin. All those wishing to 
become little mothers meet the minister in his study right after 
church. (Laughter). 

Also, churches many years ago were very, very conservative 
— lets face it — but today they are thinking more in terms of 
public relations. Have you noticed the signs out in front of 
churches these days — what they say. They don't just say, sunday 
school at such and such a time, church at such and such a time. 
They now have catchy little phrases. And one that really got me — 
driving to the airport this morning — I noticed one near the airport 
in Columbus, it said if you've given up sin, come right in, and 
someone had written underneath in chalk, if you haven't call 782- 
4435! — The laughter is good, but hitting the tables is even better 
men. I like that back there. 

Well, one little story; I love to tell stories to get you in a good 
mood, and then I would like to talk seriously to you; but a friend of 
mine recently went through a rather trying experience in his life. 
His wife had to have plastic surgery on her cheek and they were 
unable to find skin that would take and finally they called him in 
and said, "Sir, we're going to have to search various areas of your 
body to try to find skin that will take on your wife's cheek." And 
they finally found it on his rump and it worked and they put it on 
her cheek in an operation and it took. She came out of the surgery, 
still somewhat under the effects of the anesthesia and she was lying 



APPENDIX "A" 5 

there in her bed of pain and looking up and there he stood over her 
bed as she came out from under the anesthesia and he was standing 
there just smiling. She said. "Dear, why are you standing there 
over my bed like that smiling at a moment like this?" He said. 
"Honey, I can't wait until your mother comes in here and kisses 
you on your cheek." (Laughter) 

Well my Brethren, the question seriously, is whither goest 
thou Freemasonry in 1978. Maybe we're a little arthritic, I don't 
know. Maybe we're a little aged at this point in time and I think 
that we must look to new ideas and new approaches and new ways 
of solving the problems that beset this great old fraternity of ours 
in 1978. When I was installed as Grand Master of Ohio last 
October, in Cleveland, I decided that I wanted an invitation 
installation for the first time in the history of our Grand Lodge. 
And our Grand Lodge was instituted in 1809. I wanted guests to 
come and see this beautiful ceremony. I wanted particularly for the 
ladies to be there, to see the meaning of this beautiful Grand Lodge 
Installation. But I had a little bit of trouble. Some of the Past 
Grand Masters weren't too sure that this was proper and that I 
should do it at this point in time in the history of our Grand Lodge. 
We have never done that before. Some of you have heard that I'm 
sure. We have never done it before in the history of our Grand 
Lodge but I was determined that it would be done. We put in a lot 
of hard work and time and effort to carry it off. My Brethren it 
was a beautiful ceremony. Nearly three thousand people filled the 
Scottish Rite Cathedral in Cleveland to see it. And now. thank 
God, some of those Past Grand Masters are coming to me saying. 
Jerry, we were wrong, we admit it, it was a good thing, it was good 
for Freemasonry even though it was new and it was different and it 
had never been done before. 

When I was installed, on that same day, I said to all the 
Brethren and ladies in that auditorium, that I welcomed the 
challenge of serving as Grand Master of the largest Grand 
Jurisdiction in North America. I accepted the responsibility that 
was placed on my shoulders that day. I said I looked forward to the 
opportunity of serving the nearly quarter million Masons in our 
great Buckeye State. But I also said this, and I believe it as much 
tonight as I did last October, if Freemasonry is going to make 
strides in the future we've got to use imagination, innovation and 
invention if we are going to solve the problems that lie ahead. I like 
to call those the three I's. Imagination, invention, and innovation. 
If we do that, my Brethren, we can change apathy to enthusiasm, 
we can change the negative look at our problems to a positive 



6 APPENDIX "A" 

approach to solving them — that's the name of the game — 
whether its in Freemasonry, Kiwanis, Lions, Rotary or whatever, a 
positive approach to solving the problems that are ours. We can, 
we will, and we shall do it if we but apply ourselves to the task. 

Now I'm told that this is the first time in our Grand Lodge 
history in Ohio that a man in television has been Grand Master. 
It's a new ballgame. When my bosses say I must be there for the 
six and eleven o'clock news on which I appear each day, I have to 
be there. I can't always make the trips that I would desire to make. 
I flew here today and will fly out of here tomorrow morning at 7:00 
a.m. to return to Ohio to appear on television again tomorrow but 
my Brethren, if a Grand Master is to be successful, and I know 
these Grand Masters who are seated here at this table come from 
all walks of life, but if a Grand Master is to be successful, and we 
all want that — we want that mantle — when we lay aside the 
duties and responsibilities of this office we want all of you out there 
to say, that guy, that man, that Grand Master was successful. He 
achieved the goals he set for himself and for our Grand Lodge. 

I can only tell you from my own experience some of the things 
that have been successful, some of the plans I've laid out in Ohio, 
new ideas, new thoughts, new approaches. We've got to walk 
untried pathways if we're going to be successful in 1978. 

Let me say this loud and clear, we will never drop the 
beautiful tenets of our profession or the lessons in the Ritual, they 
are immutable. 

But if we are afraid to try new techniques then the success we 
want so desperately will elude us. I want to be a visible Grand 
Master, and I know that each man at this table wants that same 
title. I want the members of my Grand Lodge to see me. When I 
was Master back in 1968 I saw the Grand Master once at the 
reception held in his honour in Columbus and I was in row 37C or 
something like that; I needed binoculars to see him. That's the only 
time I saw him. I never touched him, I never shook hands with 
him, I never chatted with him. Success, my Brethren, is being 
visible and making yourself a part of all the activities of your lodge 
if you're the Master; of your Grand Lodge if you're the Grand 
Master; a functioning part, not a titular head, a functioning head. 

Last year when I was Deputy Grand Master, I went to see 
Chuck Ward and some of you may remember Chuck, our Grand 
Master, 5' 18" tall. A rather healthy looking chap. I said, "Grand 
Master, I'm only Deputy Grand Master, I hope that you will 



APPENDIX "A" 7 

understand what I'm trying to say to you but I want to go out and 
talk to every Senior Warden in this entire state." He looked at me 
and he said, "Jerry, we've never done that before." And I said, "I 
know we haven't but I want to do it. I want to take my programme 
to every Senior Warden in this state during the spring before the 
summer recess so that next fall when he becomes Master he will 
know my plans and he can help to formulate my plans during his 
year as Master of his Lodge." So we did it. I held a series of 
meetings and I called them "Let's Plan Together." I went all over 
the state of Ohio, held regional meetings and met with the Senior 
Wardens and, would you believe it, they came out to see this guy. 
who would come out before he was elected Grand Master and lay 
before them the plans he had put together for his year in the Grand 
East, and it was most effective. They were excited about the idea 
that a Deputy Grand Master was out there telling them to "come 
on men we're going to do it next year and we're going to do it 
together", we're going to turn this Grand Lodge around. Our 
Grand Lodge has been losing twenty-five hundred members 
annually for the last twenty years and still we remain the largest 
Grand Jurisdiction on this continent. Many of you are in the same 
predicament. How long can we continue to lose members and still 
remain a viable Fraternal Organization. John Lloyd, who is now 
the Emeritus Deputy of the Scottish Rite in Ohio and an insurance 
man, compiled some facts. Let me tell you this. It's rather mind 
bogling. He said in a talk recently if Freemasonry continues the 
downhill slide for the next twenty-five years that its had for the 
past twenty-five, by the year 1990 the York Rite will cease to exist. 
By the year 2037 there will be just one hundred thousand Masons 
left in the entire United States of America. Is this what we want for 
this Fraternity for which we've worked long and hard? 

There's a town in Ohio called Hamilton, down near 
Cincinnati. A good friend of mine told me that in the 20's the 
Oddfellows were the greatest Fraternal Organization in Hamilton, 
Ohio. They had a huge Temple with big marble pillars, hundreds of 
members. Today you go to Hamilton, Ohio and there is not a 
temple, its a parking lot and you cannot find one member of the 
Oddfellows — it is extinct in Hamilton, Ohio, and in many other 
cities all around the country. 

Freemasonry cannot allow itself to fall into this trap. We 
need, I believe more than anything else, my Brethren, — and 
whether you agree with me or not — I want to tell you how I feel. 
Freemasonry must begin to shed that mantle of ultra secrecy which 
has clouded our image for lo these many years. We've got to get 



8 APPENDIX "A" 

our light out from under the bushel. We've got to spread the light 
of Freemasonry and tell all those outside our Temple walls the 
beautiful story we have to tell. 

In Ohio this year it was my desire that to do this we open an 
old Lodge in. conjunction with our historical society. A Lodge 
accurate in every description from the 1800's. We've done it. In 
spite of the fact that we had not done that before and there were 
many of them afraid that we couldn't do it but we've done it and 
thousands of people, young and old, are going to go through that 
old Lodge and be told the story of Freemasonry and will be 
impressed by what they see and hear. 

Another way in which we could tell the beautiful story of 
Freemasonry to those outside the Fraternity and I told you about 
going out and talking to the Senior Wardens, I gave them four 
programmes. Let me very quickly tell you what I told them. I said, 
men I want you to try next year to implement just these four 
programmes. If you'll do that we can turn Freemasonry around in 
1978 and start the uphill climb and not the downhill slide we've 
been on for the past twenty years. Four programmes. This is the 
one hundred, seventy fifth anniversary of Ohio's admission to the 
union. Masons brought our state into the union in 1803 and we're 
celebrating that fact. We're having a big state-wide celebration 
sponsored by the Masons on August 19th and the Grand Masters 
of those Grand Lodges that chartered our six founding Lodges are 
coming in with us and some of them are sitting here at this head 
table tonight. 

I told them to have a widow's night, and to honour the ladies 
whose husbands had given so much of themselves to Freemasonry. 
My mom is a Masonic widow and I know what it would mean to 
her if she were invited to the Lodge for a night in her honour. 
Many Lodges have held these nights and I wish you could see the 
letters I have received from widows throughout our state, 
thanking me, many saying that it is the first time since their 
husband's death that they have been invited to the Lodge. 
Brethren, we can never, ever forget these ladies. And one in 
particular has deep meaning for me. A night with the Clergy is one 
of the programmes that I suggested. To invite the Rabbis and 
Priests and the Ministers into our Temple. Have a night in their 
honour. Tell them this beautiful story and send them back to their 
Churches and Synagogues and Cathedrals with a better insight 
into what this great old Fraternity means. In many areas my 
Brethren we are being talked down by Ministers and Priests and 
Rabbis because they don't know who we are. A friend of mine 



APPENDIX "A" 9 

from the television studio went home for a weekend, went to 
church and she came back in a state of shock and she said, "Jerry, 
I heard the most violent anti-masonic sermon from the pulpit this 
morning I've ever heard — in my home church. This minister did 
not understand us and what he did not understand he feared and 
what he feared he talked against." 

Another programme and I think this is the most important of 
all, and men we've had tremendous success with this programme in 
Ohio. It's called "Lets Get Acquainted". All I did was ask those 
men who were going to be Worshipful Masters of the Lodges to 
have a night called "Lets Get Acquainted" to personally invite 
those quality men in the community who should be Masons but for 
one reason or another are not, invite them into the Temples, have a 
programme for them, tell them about Freemasonry, send them 
away with a good feeling about the Fraternity and let them know 
that we're not just a little secret society meeting up on the second 
floor of that building. We're a Fraternal organization with deep 
roots in the community. I insisted that wives be invited right along 
with these men. 

One little Lodge near Columbus that was having one 
candidate per year held one of these meetings and at the next stated 
meeting they had six petitions all of them as a result of that one 
"Lets Get Acquainted" meeting. 

Gentlemen, public relations is my ballgame, and you in all 
other walks of life I'm sure that each of us does what we can to 
improve our Lodge. We have a little booklet in Ohio — Judge, we 
stole it from Pennsylvania and I want to thank you for that — it's 
called "Freemasonry — a Way of Life" and it is, isn't it. It's a way 
of conducting our lives. We take good men and we make them 
better. This little booklet can be shown to anyone at anytime and 
anyplace and in very concise and easy to understand terms it tells 
what we're all about. In each of those "Lets Get Acquainted" 
meetings those little booklets were given to the guests. 

I have a public relations committee. They put out a little book 
called "Sharing Masonry". How to get prints in the newspapers, 
how to get pictures of your functions in the newspapers. We have a 
brand new publication and I think this is probably most important, 
its called a "Mason's Lady", designed specifically for your ladies. 
You know what these gals tell me? They say, Jerry, my husband 
doesn't know what to tell me about Freemasonry so he doesn't tell 
me anything. He's out of the house night after night going to those 
Masonic meetings, at least that's what he tells me, and I really 



10 APPENDIX "A" 

have no idea what its all about. I would like to know the things that 
I can know. This little booklet is designed specifically for that 
purpose. To let the ladies know the things that they should know 
about this Fraternity. 

We have a film this year for the first time in our history. A 
public relations vehicle called "A Precious Heritage" — the story 
of our Grand Lodge intertwined with the history of our state 
during this the 175th anniversary of Ohio. It's been most 
successful. It received a gold medal at the International Film 
Festival in New York. It was produced by Allan Roberts of 
Virginia. It's in such great demand in Ohio that we can't get it out 
fast enough. Eastern Star Chapters want to see it. York Rite 
Bodies want to see it. The Lodges want to see it — it's a 
tremendous public relations vehicle. Public relations done 
discreetly and tactfully is something that we have to think about in 
1978. something we've got to use because it can do great things for 
us. 

You know, when I visit a Lodge, and I've visited a lot of them 
and all of us do, when I walk into a Lodge and I see a lot of grey 
heads I know that that Lodge is blessed with great experience and 
great maturity but if I don't see any young men I know that Lodge 
is in trouble. Its future is in doubt. We must in some manner 
interest the young men in this Fraternity. You know the young 
men are a new breed of cat. They're not the same as we were, 
they're not the same as any of us. I'll bet most of you in this room 
have spent most of your lives in one spot, maybe in a relatively 
small area of the globe. I read a book not long ago. It said the kids 
today are probably born in one area, they go to school in another, 
live in another, have recreation in another. It's a different world 
and we've got to do different and inventive things if we're going to 
interest young men in becoming Freemasons. Today's youth 
doesn't share with you the discipline of the institutions and the 
people of a single home community. So if he's going to make it, if 
he's going to promulgate a self discipline, and that's what he's 
going to have to do to make it in this world, where does he get it? 
I'll tell you where he gets it. Self discipline is conscience, and what 
is conscience. Conscience is a core of building guidelines or truths, 
self discipline a value system, a deeper conscience. If it sounds 
familiar my Brethren it ought to, because those are the 
fundamental philosophies and teachings of Freemasonry. Robert 
Browning wrote that life has meaning and he defined that meaning 
as "My Meat and my Drink". Young people ioday are deeply 
concerned with discovering their own identities. They want to do 
their own thing. 



APPENDIX "A" II 

Jack Nicklaus — greatest golfer who ever lived — is from 
Ohio. I can say that, he's from Ohio. He's bowing out just a little 
now but he comes to Columbus every now and then and one of the 
first places he goes to is the school for the blind. In Columbus, we 
have a rather remarkable such school. Not long ago Jack was there 
and this boy came out, a young kid came up who of course could 
not see and he said. "Jack I want to shake your hand but not only 
that I've been practicing golf, practicing every day and I can play 
golf and I want to challenge you to nine holes." Nicklaus said. 
"Well I'm pretty good you know, I've played this game a long 
time." The kid said, "Well, I don't care, I've practiced and 
practiced waiting for you to come. Nine holes is all I ask. Will you 
allow me to play nine holes of golf with you?" And Nicklaus said. 
"Well okay, when do you want to play?" and the kid said . "How 
about eleven-thirty tonight!" (Laughter). 

You see they want to do their own thing. They want to 
discover their own identity. They want to know where they are 
going. They want to discover life. This above all to thine own self 
be true and it shall follow as the night the day thou canst be false 
to any man. We can't make these young men aware of the tenets of 
Freemasonry unless we make ourselves available to them, and in 
so doing lead that industrious, self reliant, clean and wholesome 
life that we talk about. We can't only talk about it, we've got to 
practice it. We've got to show an example that can be emulated by 
these young people. If we don't live the teachings of this profession 
then who will? If the leaders are not willing to lead, then who will 

Today's youth are confused and concerned about their role in 
this society. They need a meaningful code of ethics and we've got 
it. We have got to practice it. We have it in Freemasonry like no 
other organization in the world but we have got to practice it. 
twenty-four hours a day in and out of the Lodge. You know 
something and I believe this sincerely, sometimes we put too much 
emphasis on memorization by rote. Let's not worry about "by 
rote" up here. Let's worry about by heart — right here — where it 
counts. I understand the DeMolay Chapters are just beginning to 
be formulated here in Canada and in this Province. The DeMolay 
Chapter in Ohio needed help not long ago and they came to me and 
they said they had all the money they needed — didn't need money. 
Do you know what they needed? They needed Masons to serve as 
advisors and you know something, we couldn't find them. We 
couldn't find enough concerned Masons to serve as advisors to 
those young men who needed help so desperately. The future of 
this institution lies in our ability to communicate with these young 



12 APPENDIX "A" 

men from all walks of life. I think we had better start thinking 
about Harry S. Truman, Past Grand Master of Missouri and 
President of the United States. He said, "The buck stops right 
here." Right here at the doorstep of each of us, who would call 
ourselves Freemasons. 

I want to tell you about one more programme that took place 
in Ohio this year. A first in our state. During Brotherhood Week. 
the Grand Lodge of Ohio sponsored a series of Brotherhood 
programmes, in six major cities, for the first time in history, in 
conjunction with the Knights of Columbus, and B'nai B'rith, our 
Catholic Brethren, and our Jewish Brethren. They were 
tremendously successful. I was made an honorary member of the 
Knights of Columbus — First Grand Master in our history I am 
sure who is also a member of the Knights of Columbus. But it's a 
great thing, ecumenism. You know what ecumenism means don't 
you. It means that now the Jews can eat pork, the Catholics can eat 
meat on Friday and the United Methodists can speak to each other 
in the liquor store. (Laughter). My Brethren, enthusiasm is the key 
to our success. Henry Ford said that with it there is a great success, 
unlimited possibilities; without it there are only alibis. I don't 
intend to offer any alibis at the end of my term of Office because I 
want this enthusiasm to rub off on every Mason in our state and I 
want them to know that we're going to do it. We're going to 
accomplish our goals and we're going to be successful. 

Three things stand out in my mind, many more perhaps, but 
three very memorable moments as Grand Master and I'm sure 
that every Grand Master at this Head Table could repeat things 
that have stuck with them. 

I presented a seventy-five year pin to a ninety-eight year old 
gentleman in Zainsville, Ohio. He lives alone, at ninety-eight. He's 
very stooped, walks with a cane. I went to his home to present the 
seventy-five year pin. I walked in and chatted with him briefly and 
I said that I would like to affix this pin to your lapel. He said. 
"Grand Master, not this coat, I want it to go on my good coat." So 
he went to the closet, pulled out a rather shabby looking coat — 
but that was his good one — turned and faced me, dropped his 
cane, and stood as straight as an arrow and said, "Grand Master 
I'm ready." 

I went to our Ohio Masonic Home to present pins to several 
older members. One gentleman didn't appear to know who I was 
or where he was as a matter of fact. I affixed the pin to his lapel 
and turned to leave. He looked up and said, "Thank you, Grand 
Master." 



APPENDIX "A" 13 

We had an all-Ohio Masonic home day this year and nearly 
five thousand Masons went to our home. We had entertainment 
and it was a cold day but they wrapped the patients in blankets so 
they could watch the entertainment outside, and a sight I shall 
never forget is those patients, wrapped in blankets refusing to leave 
because it was their day, and the Masons of Ohio made it so. 

You know there's a song from Lerner & Lowes' My Fair 
Lady, the title of the song is "Show Me". When I heard that title I 
thought that applied to each of us in Fraternity. I want to close 
with a challenge my Brethren, if you believe in brotherly love, relief 
and truth — show me. If you believe that faith, hope and charity 
are not just words but are a way of living — show me. If you 
believe in the teachings of that book which is open on the Altar of 
each one of our meetings — show me — and if you're willing to 
stand up for this great old Fraternity, and work for it. and fight for 
it, and give of yourself for it, then SHOW ME AND SHOW ME 
NOW! 

Thank you very much. 

(Prolonged Applause).
