years he shall automatically be vested with full membership in the 
Society. 

Section 2. No one shall be entitled to membership in any State

or failed for two years to pay its annual dues to the National Society, 
fifteen or more persons duly qualified for membership in this Society 
may associate themselves as a State Society of the Sons of the Ameri- 
can Revolution, and organize in accordance with this Constitution, they 
may be admitted by the Board of Trustees to the National Society as 

"The Society of the Sons of the American Revolution," and shall 

thereafter have exclusive local jurisdiction in the State or Territory or 
in the District in which they are organized, subject to the provisions of 
this Constitution, but this provision shall not be construed so as to 
exclude the admission of candidates residing in other States. 

Section 3. Each State Society shall judge of the qualifications of its 
members and of those proposed for membership, subject to the pro- 
visions of this Constitution, and shall regulate all matters pertaining to 
its own affairs. It shall have authority to establish local Chapters 
within its own jurisdiction, and to endow the Chapters with such power 
as it may deem proper, not inconsistent with the charter of the Na- 
tional Society or with this Constitution. It shall have authority, after 
due notice and impartial trial, to expel any member who, by conduct 
unbecoming a gentleman, shall render himself unworthy to remain a 
member of the Society.

of the National Society a report, setting forth by name the additions, 
transfers and deaths, and any other changes in the membership, and the 
progress of the State Society during the preceding year, and making 
such suggestions as it shall deem proper for the promotion of the 
objects of the National Society. 

Section 5. Whenever a member in good standing in his Society shall 
change his residence from the jurisdiction of the State Society of which 
he is a member to that of another, he shall be entitled, if he so elects, 
to a certificate of honorable demission from his own State Society, in 
order that he may be transferred to the State Society to whose juris- 
diction he shall have changed his residence: Provided, That his mem- 
bership shall continue in the former until he shall have been elected a 
member of the latter.

sion of members by transfer.

shall be held to include within its meaning the District of Columbia

Section 7. A Society may be formed in any foreign country by fif- 
teen or more persons who are eligible to membership under this Con- 
stitution.' which shall bear the same relation to the national organization

PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRTIETH ANNUAL CONGRESS 

OF 

THE NATIONAL SOCIETY OF THE SONS OF 
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION 

HELD AT THE HOTEL STATLER, DETROIT, MICH., 
MAY 19 AND 20, 1919 



The Congress was called to order at io a. m. by the President Gen- 
eral, Louis Annin Ames. 

The Chair: The Thirtieth Annual Congress of the National Society 
of the Sons of the American Revolution is now in session. We will be 
led in prayer by the Chaplain General, Rev. Dr. Lee S. McCollester. 

The Chaplain General : Let us pray. Almighty God, our Heavenly 
Father, as we come together in this session for conference, first of all 
we would turn to Thee with gratitude in our hearts for the blessings 
which Thou has bestowed upon us in the days that are past. We thank 
Thee for the long history of our country, for its ideals, its noble men, 
its true service to humanity. We thank Thee for its course onward in 
the service of the world and its enlarging usefulness in the cause of 
humanity and free government. Gathering here from many States, rep- 
resenting different organizations, we bring Thee our thanks for those 
who have preceded us in the long years, our forefathers, who, with 
their high ideals and their spirit of sacrifice, served their day in places 
along the New England coast and inland, wherever they might be 
called, and who have given to us the blessings and the memories and 
the hopes which we enjoy. We are thankful for our Nation today. 
We return to Thee our gratitude that Thou hast raised up in these 
latter days men with the same spirit and the same courage and the 
same ideals as those who founded our country, and who have gone 
forth to service on land and sea, at home and on foreign soil, and have 
served the cause of democracy and righteousness. We thank Thee, 
Father, for the sacrifice of some, and here today in silence we refer to 
those who lie in foreign soil. Be Thou our guide amidst the sorrows 
and fill our hearts with thankfulness for those who gave the utmost in 
the service of our country and for our common good. We rejoice as 
these boys come home from overseas. May we receive them with grati- 
tude and thanksgiving, being glad for what they have done and feeling 
in our hearts a new responsibility to carry forward the work for which 
they have fought. Be with those who are in authority in our country, 
at home and abroad. Give them wisdom. Give them vision. Give 
them a consecration to their high ideals which have always stirred in 

77 



y8 sons of the; American revolution. 

the heart and work of our Nation. Be with us here at home. Be with 
all whom we love, wherever they may be. Guide us in this meeting 
here during these days, and may we not only feel the good fellowship 
as we come together representing our different Chapters, but may we 
organize some new plans which may make for better service to our 
country, that we may thereby help to make a better world, in which 
permanent peace may live and in which true democracy may thrive. 
Bless the officers of this organization; bless those who guide and direct, 
and bless us each and all, and by and by may Thy will on earth be 
done, may the true and loyal men who have served their honorable 
duties to the right and to the world gather in that house not made with 
hands, Thy Kingdom, where Thou hast gathered those who made for 
righteousness and truth. May we go with the flag and with the spirit 
of the Nation, and do Thou, the God of nations and individuals, bless 
and save us, and at length bring the peace which the world needs over 
every land, and may wars cease from off the face of the earth. As 
Sons of the Fathers and as children of Almighty God, wilt Thou be 
with us forever more. Amen. 

The Chair: The Chair inquires if the Honorable Albert E. Sleeper, 
Governor of Michigan, is in the room, or his representative? We know 
that this is a day of days for the city of Detroit. We know that the 
Mayor of Detroit, the heart of the Mayor of Detroit, is with the hearts 
of all Detroiters, and he is extending the welcome of Detroit to the 
returning boys of Detroit ; otherwise he would be with us ; but he has 
sent some one as his personal representative, one that we are very glad 
to welcome, the Honorable Clarence E. Wilcox, corporation counsel, 
who will now extend to us the greetings of the city of Detroit. (Ap- 
plause.) 

GREETING BY HON. CLARENCE E. WILCOX. 

Mr. Wilcox : Mr. Chairman and members of the Society of the Sons 
of the American Revolution, it is indeed a very great pleasure to have 
the privilege of welcoming you to Detroit. We have looked forward 
with anticipation to this meeting by your society, and we feel confident 
that great inspiration and benefit will come to us all because of it. It 
seems that Detroit is peculiarly fortunate in the time it has selected to 
have your Congress held in our city. There may be those here today 
who will recall that just twenty years ago, at the successful close of the 
Spanish- American War, your Congress for that year was held in this 
city, and many of the men in attendance at that time were prominent 
in that great conflict ; and yet, in these intervening years, how many 
have gone? Among them our own Mayor Maybury, Governor Pingree, 
Hon. Thomas W. Parmelee, Gen. Russell A. Alger, and others. Today 
you are met in Detroit at the end of a great, victorious war; yet a year 
ago the world trembled, as the guns of the German Empire sent their 
shot and shell against that wavering line extending from Calais to 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 79 

Switzerland, which was struggling there to uphold those principles of 
freedom and liberty which your forefathers fought for and established ; 
so that, in this great period of remodeling and reconstructing, our 
minds turn instinctively to that great struggle of 1776 — a struggle which 
has sanctified to us Americans the name "Revolution." Here in Detroit 
we regret that we were not a part of one of the Thirteen Colonies. 
That might be an idle wish from some cities, from many cities, for at 
that time they were but an unbroken wilderness; but in Detroit it was 
different. Judged by human standards, we were already an ancient 
city, having passed threescore years and ten; in fact, some of our 
neighboring cities have been wont to say in times past that we were so 
old that we were dead ; but as to that last we do not hear so much 
recently. Detroit was founded in 1701 by a band of French settlers 
and continued under French control until 1760. During that period 
one of the interesting experiences of the settlers was the standing of a 
twelve months' siege by the Indians under Chief Pontiac, and you may 
see at the head of Belle Isle an island where the Indians gathered in 
their canoes to attack the town of Detroit. Detroit in 1760 was ceded 
to Great Britain, and its territory was then much greater than now, as 
it extended as far west as the Pacific; but Detroit has generally given 
up that territory in order to make possible San Francisco and St. Louis 
and Chicago. During that period the Ohio River was the border line 
between the Indians and the French and British. Detroit, together with 
Niagara, formed a key to this great territory, where many important 
battles and Indian skirmishes took place. By the treaty of 1783, at the 
close of the Revolutionary War, Detroit passed to the United States; 
but the inclination on the part of all the people who have once lived in 
Detroit seems to be to remain here; so, contrary to the terms of this 
treaty, the British continued to hold Detroit for seventeen years, or 
until 1796. In 1812 the territory was surrendered to the British by 
General Hull, but in 1813 it was regained by the American forces; so 
that we feel that while we have not those historic things to mention 
that the cities of the past have, we still feel that we are strictly an 
American city with a historic past. Detroit has also contributed her 
share of the men who have stirred the Nation. Among those might be 
mentioned a Postmaster General, a Secretary of the Navy, a Secretary 
of War, and a member of the Supreme Court of the United States, 
and it is not the fault of some of our citizens that we cannot include a 
Presidency in that list. (Laughter.) So Detroit feels that she is hon- 
ored in having served under those three great flags— the French, the 
British, and the American— which during the year just passed have floated 
together as one flag against the tide of Prussian militarism. (Applause.) 
During the present struggle Detroit has played an important part indus- 
trially. Her manufacturers responded unanimously, and as a result 
great stores of munitions, artillery supplies, liberty motors, aeroplanes 
and hospital supplies were provided. There were maintained here three 
barracks— Fort Wayne, the one at the Eagle plant, and the one at the 



80 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Aviation Field — and the U. S. General Hospital, where today over six 
hundred wounded soldiers are being taken care of. In the Liberty 
Loan, Detroit has been among the first of the large cities to go over 
the top, and in the Victory Loan campaign just closed, with a quota of 
$55,000,000 to raise, Detroit the first day subscribed for $63,000,000. 
(Applause.) I would not have you think that these matters are men- 
tioned boastfully, but only for the purpose of explaining to you that 
Detroit must have a real, sincere, patriotic interest in those ideals for 
which your organization stands. Detroit has been credited with being 
first in a great many things, commercially ; but this is not really enough 
for any city. She has been favored, richly favored, with an increase 
in area, wealth, and population; but this alone is not enough. Frankly, 
we want to confide in you that this is not enough. Our ambition here 
is to be known as a clean city, as a city with high civic ideas, a place 
where it is safe to rear fresh-souled childhood, a place where young 
men can stay clean and sober and old men can pass their time in peace 
and happiness. This is the spirit of Detroit that welcomes you here 
today and trusts that you may find in this welcome the warm hand of 
fellowship given by a host to an honored guest. Thank you. (Ap- 
plause.) 

The Chair: Compatriots, Brigadier General Charles A. Coolidge, 
U. S. A. (retired), and President of the Michigan Society, Sons of 
the American Revolution, will extend the greetings of that Society. 
(Applause.) 

WELCOME BY BRIGADIER GENERAL CHARLES A. 
COOLIDGE (RETIRED). 

General Coolidge : Mr. President General and Compatriots of the 
Sons of the American Revolution, on behalf of the Michigan Society 
of the Sons of the American Revolution, in whose name the invitation 
for your coming here was extended (the Detroit Chapter has the honor 
of providing the local entertainment), I bid you welcome to this great 
and growing city, whose prosperity is typified by its vast commercial 
interests yet only in their primitive growth. We propose to show you 
a few of the prominent points of interest during your official visit here. 
If you really desire to see and investigate all our attractions, you must 
prolong your visit and remain a week or two, which would amply repay 
you, and if you would take in the resources and phenomena of this 
peninsula settled by Marquette, La Salle, and Cadillac, I freely offer 
you the privilege of roaming over my entire jurisdiction and assure 
you a hearty welcome from the five other societies of the Sons of the 
American Revolution. If you have time and opportunity, I would ad- 
vise you to take the trip up the St. Clair River to Port Huron and 
through Lake Huron to St. Clair Flats and to the Sault Ste. Marie 
Canal, which is one of the most wonderful canals in the world and is 
a big sight. You can then go on up Lake Superior, to the copper and 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 8l 

iron region, clear to Duluth, and return to Michigan again. If you 
want to go by rail or trolley to see the automobile industry, of which 
you have not seen enough, after you get through here, you can go to 
Flint and Pontiac by trolley. You can go to Wyandotte and see the 
salt works and the alkali works, which are the largest in the world. 
You can go to Ann Harbor to see our Michigan University, or you can 
go to Lansing, the great agricultural colony. You can go to Battle 
Creek to see Camp Custer and the food sanitarium, where you can get 
your health restored. You can go to Grand Rapids, the furniture city 
of the United States. You can go to Kalamazoo, noted for its match 
factory, its asparagus, and its fruit ; you can go up the Sound to Sagi- 
naw, where they make wonderful plate-glass, and to Port Huron, where 
they make sugar out of the sugar-beet, which you had to use for your 
coffee and tea when cane sugar was not allowed. You can go to Trav- 
erse City, Petosky, and Charlevoi, the upper route of the summer re- 
sorts, which are very agreeable and beautiful places to visit. I leave 
Detroit to my Compatriot, Dr. Knight, and would advise you, if you 
have rheumatism, to go to our Mt. Clemens bath, and also to hear the 
million-dollar libel suit between Mr. Ford and the Chicago Tribune. 
(Laughter.) Unfortunately, Michigan is a dry State (laughter), and 
you will be compelled to drown your thirst in the waters of oblivion — 
a rather different thing from what you had to do twenty years ago, I 
assure you, when, although I was in Chicago, I came here. But we 
will all be in the same boat the first of July, so it is well to grow used 
to the swish of the waves. The activities of our actual warfare in 
Europe seem to have terminated, for the present at least ; but even a 
League of Nations cannot bring eternal peace, and it is essential that 
the American Nation should stand for preparedness in the future, and 
not be caught childlike and bland the second time. (Applause.) Bol- 
shevism is exerting its tenets and its sway among us and we must en- 
deavor to instill into our alien citizens the spirit of Americanism, true 
democracy, and the patriotism for which our armies in Europe fought, 
and there is no greater organization or more powerful society to settle 
these difficulties than the Sons of the American Revolution and their 
descendants. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Bates : May I be permitted to make a congratulatory 
announcement, known to but two persons in this town, and I hope that 
the Detroit press will make a note of it. At the meeting of the Naval 
and Military Order of the Spanish-American War, at Philadelphia, on 
Saturday, the 17th, our compatriot, General Coolidge, was elected Com- 
mander-in-Chief of that order. I think we should congratulate him. 
(Applause.) 

The Chair : I take great pleasure in calling to the platform Dr. 
Stephen H. Knight, beloved President of the Detroit Chapter. (Ap- 
plause.) 



82 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

WELCOME BY DR. STEPHEN H. KNIGHT, PRESIDENT OF 
THE DETROIT CHAPTER. 

Dr. Knight: You don't expect a doctor to make a speech; anyway, 
all my thunder has been stolen by our good lawyer over here and our 
noted townsman. However, it is up to me to make a little address of 
welcome for the Detroit Chapter, the Detroit Chapter being the one 
which has really had the hard work of getting things ready for you; 
and if you do not find everything exactly as you want it, just kick at 
me. I have a few knives and things left in my kit, so that if you kick 
too hard, why, I will have something to kick you with, and you know 
it says in the Good Book not to kick against the pricks. 

I could go back a little bit further than our good corporation counsel 
here, and I am glad he did not go back of 1700. You know, in 1670 
the first white man trod these wastes. Joliet, in 1670, sailed up this 
beautiful river which we call the Detroit River, and which we think is 
as beautiful as the Hudson or the Rhine, or the Chicago River, as that 
may be (laughter) ; it certainly flows the right way. That reminds me 
of a little story I heard of a Bostonian — and, by the way, I was born 
within sixteen miles of Boston and fled that country to come out where 
we could get plenty of air and room. A Bostonian was floating grace- 
fully down the river, and after he had floated a number of miles, he 
noticed that he still kept floating the same way, and he said to a native, 
"How soon does the tide go the other way?" "Well," said the fellow, 
"I have been here nigh on thirty years and I never saw it run but this 
way all the time;" so, instead of floating back, he had to row against 
the tide. 

Can you imagine, in those early days, before the white man had pol- 
luted this soil, as we say — can you imagine what that Detroit River 
might have looked like, with the beautiful trees, the scenery, and the 
island in that river? You will see it a little bit when you go to Belle 
Isle. Then, the story I am going to tell you now is connected more or 
less with Belle Isle. 

When, in 1670, Joliet and his companions came here they were re- 
ligious men; they had been trained in the church and been trained to 
war over on the other side, and when they found, at the foot of what 
we call Woodward Avenue, a stone image which represented the great 
Manitou of the Indians, in their religious zeal they broke that image in 
pieces and cast it away. When the Red Man came again and found his 
image destroyed, he naturally was very much discouraged, and the 
great Manitou came to them and said, "Gather the pieces together and 
take them down to the foot of the island," what we now call Belle Isle; 
and so they took them down there, and he changed them into snakes, 
in order that his resting place might be kept free from the white man, 
and for a long time snakes abounded in that beautiful island, in order 
that the great Manitou might have his revenge on the white man. 
Then what did the white man do? He is always practical, even if not 



PROCEEDINGS OE DETROIT CONGRESS. 83 

sentimental or religious; so he bought a lot of hogs and turned them 
into the island, and they ate the snakes, and for a while our beautiful 
Belle Isle was called Hog Island ; and then the city bought it, after the 
snakes had been cleared away, and turned it into a park. Then they 
passed a prohibition law, and the snakes have been taken away, even 
from the city of Detroit; so we can all wander about free and easy, 
knowing that nothing can harm us. 

Detroit was always great on the welcome, and if you noticed the 
streets today, you noticed how crowded they were. We have tried our 
best to advertise the coming of the Sons of the American Revolution, 
and you see what we have accomplished — the streets are crowded today 
to welcome you. (Laughter and applause.) They also welcome some 
others home, our own boys. Detroit sent at least sixty thousand, at a 
conservative estimate. Thirty thousand were taken in the draft and 
the other thirty thousand by voluntary enlistment in the Naval Reserve 
and other branches ; so at least sixty thousand went away from Detroit 
to the war. Of that sixty thousand, some nine hundred will never 
come back; and as the boys come home, that is the great welcome that 
we are giving today, and we are glad you are here, in one way, to see 
that welcome, although it may crowd the city a little bit. We are glad 
for you to see that welcome, because it is partially a welcome to you 
also, because we represent the same principles that they represent. 
They went away to save the face of the earth from cruelty and despot- 
ism, and our fathers came over here to save the face of the earth from 
cruelty and despotism. 

Now, then, in the name of the Detroit Chapter, I bid you welcome. 
If anything does not go to your pleasure, let us know and we will try 
and make it so. I would say that we want you all to attend the luncheon 
of the Louisa St. Clair Chapter, which has provided generously for us. 
We would also like to have you go to the reception of Colonel Alger 
and also on the ride. Plenty of transportation will be provided for all. 
There will be plenty of good things to eat in the other room, and we 
hope that you will have a very good time. I have also a little letter in 
my pocket which I received this morning. There is another small 
Chapter of the ladies which is known as the Fort Pontchartrain Chap- 
ter. Do you know that Fort Pontchartrain was named for that great 
Frenchman, Count Pontchartrain; and right below you, just a little 
ways below, was Fort Pontchartrain. I want to say again, you are 
standing on historic ground. We are no new place; we are not nuevo 
rich, although we are a little richer than we were twenty years ago, 
when you were here the last time, and we are in a bigger hotel. 

To say that we make more automobiles than all the rest of the coun- 
try put together, that we go over the top the first day for the Liberty 
Loan— those are mere bagatelle; we pride ourselves on being a city 
with a history, and part of it was right on this spot. Just below us was 
the Fort Pontchartrain for which this Chapter was named; just a little 
down the river Perry fought his victory on Lake Erie, and won. Now 



84 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

we did not have very many things to boast of in the War of 1812 — 
General Jackson and the men who fought on the ocean — but we fought 
right out here on Lake Erie, and Perry's victory on Lake Erie gave 
this part of the country to the United States. Had the British won that 
victory, Detroit would have been Canada instead of the United States, 
and likewise all this great western territory. 

So the ladies of the Fort Pontchartrain Chapter send their greetings 
to the Sons of the American Revolution and wish them a happy and 
good time. I thank you, gentlemen. (Applause.) 

RESPONSE BY THE PRESIDENT GENERAL. 

The Chair : To Mr. Wilcox, the representative of His Honor the 
Mayor, and Compatriots General Coolidge and Dr. Knight, I desire to> 
say it affords me great pleasure on behalf of the Congress to accept the 
welcome that has come out of your hearts. Many of us have come 
back here after twenty years to renew our youth. We have come back 
knowing the kind of a welcome we would receive. We have all come 
feeling that we are a part of Detroit, a part of Michigan. This is a 
family gathering, as you will see. 

Looking out of the windows of this hotel, you see the boys who have 
come back. They are the boys of every compatriot here. It was a 
Detroit boy who, in the trenches, aided after an accident a lad who had 
been in my home for three years ; so it is impossible for me to make 
any distinction between the Detroit boy and the New York boy. 

A little lad who stood on the sidewalk last night said : "Papa's regi- 
ment is coming back tomorrow, but papa is in France, and he is not 
coming back, but papa's regiment is." The boy who told that story was 
a Brooklyn boy whose father was an officer in a Michigan regiment. 
So, you see, these are all our boys. They all belong to all of us. They 
are all Americans. 

One of the speakers suggested that he wished that Michigan had 
been one of the Thirteen Original Colonies. In the great army that 
went over seas some were regulars, some were volunteers, some were 
in the reserve. Michigan was not among the first Thirteen Original 
Colonies, but she was in the reserve of the Colonies, for what would 
the American Revolution have been if its achievements had not been 
sealed and safeguarded by the War of 1812. The War of 1812 finished 
the war of the American Revolution, and in that latter war Michigan 
played an important part. (Applause.) The battle on Lake Erie de- 
termined more than any other event its successful conclusion. In ex- 
pressing to you the gratitude, the joy, and the thanks of the National 
Society of the Sons of the American Revolution for these greetings, I 
assure you that you have made us feel at home. We are glad to be 
here. 

The Chair : I desire to extend the welcome of this Congress to the 
Past Presidents General who are here, and I ask Past Presidents Gen- 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 85 

eral Nelson A. McClary, R. C. Ballard Thruston, and Newell B. Wood- 
worth kindly to come to the platform, where seats are waiting for them. 

The compatriots called on responded to the Chairman's request and 
were greeted with applause. 

The Chair: Before I had the opportunity of adding the name of 
Past President General Wentworth he arose. I wanted to say that 
while he is a Past President General, he is also one of the Executive 
Board, and I was going to ask him to come up in his double capacity 
to occupy two chairs and give him two welcomes, but he took that all 
away from me and didn't let me complete what I had to say, but the 
welcome is double for him, just the same. (Applause.) 

The Chair : The Committee on Credentials has already been ap- 
pointed and it has assured me that there is a quorum present, and with 
that assurance I will not ask for a temporary report, at this moment, 
because I desire that we shall proceed with the business of the day in 
as quick order as possible, giving due consideration and attention to all 
details.

The Chair: In order that we may expedite business, I appoint two 
session committees, if it meets with your approval. These committees 
will be known as the Committee on Official Reports and Recommenda- 
tions and the Committee on Resolutions. As chairman of the first 
committee, I nominate Nelson A. McClary, of Illinois, Past President 
General; Col. Fred M. Alger, of Michigan; Dr. Horace N. Allen, of 
Ohio; Judge Harvey F. Remington, of Rochester, N. Y., and Dr. 
George C. F. Williams, of Connecticut. On the Committee on Resolu- 
tions, I nominate Compatriot R. C. Ballard Thruston, Past President 
General, representing Kentucky; Dr. Stephen H. Knight, of Michigan; 
President Carl M. Vail, of New Jersey; Admiral George W. Baird, of 
the District of Columbia; Compatriot Walter B. Hopping, of New 
York. Are there any objections to the appointment of these commit- 
tees? Not hearing any, the appointments will stand. 

I ask the compatriots, as they rise and address the Chair, to announce 
not only their names, but the States from which they come. I recog- 
nize Compatriot Clarke, President of the Virginia Society. 

Compatriot Arthur B. Clarke, President of the Virginia Society, 
S. A. R. : At our annual meeting there was a little poem of four verses, 
composed by Mr. Rosewell Page, brother of the Ambassador to Italy, 
and read by him, and since reference has been made to the boys who 



88 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

will not come back and who stayed in France, I looked in my pocket 
and found that I had a copy of this poem, which I will take the privi- 
lege of reading: 

"Did you," I asked of an oldish man, 

"Have any son in France?" 
"Three," said the oldish man to me, 
In tone straight set like a lance. 

"Will they come back, now that peace has come, 

Will they return apace?" 
"They'll stay there," he said to me, 

Though calm and placid his face. 

To this I said to the oldish man, 
"They have fallen in love in France?" 
"They have fallen for love of her," he said. 
In tone as clear as his glance. 

"Were they together?" I helplessly asked. 
"No ; wide apart they stood, 
Chateau-Thierry, and San Mihiel, 
And John in the Argonne Wood !" 

"Are you, dear sir, not sorry they went?" 
"Not I, by God, I'm glad. 
The one vain thing I now regret, 
They lie away from their dad !" 

President General Ames then delivered his annual address, as follows : 
ANNUAL ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT GENERAL. 

Another year has gone by since last we met in Congress assembled — 
a year that has brought perplexities to organizations as well as to na- 
tions and individuals. 

A year ago this Nation of ours was engaged in a holy war, having 
pledged its manhood and treasure without limit for the preservation of 
those principles of liberty, justice, equality, and progress for which our 
American Revolutionary forefathers pledged their lives, their fortunes, 
and their sacred honor. 

Over 12 per cent of our entire membership have answered the call to 
the colors. On the field of battle, in the camps, and at home, 166 of 
our compatriots in the past twelve months have answered the "last 
summons." These loyal Americans of our membership who have "jour- 
neyed on," during life enriched our Society, endeared themselves to us, 
and are now held in sacred memory because of their splendid activities, 
devoted service, high character, and generous nature, prominent among 
whom was that commanding figure, Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, The 
Great American. 

On the last night of the old year, great was the sorrow that came to 
our Order. From earth to heaven passed A. Howard Clark, the de- 
voted and efficient Secretarv-Registrar General of the National Society 



PROCEEDINGS OE DETROIT CONGRESS. 89 

of the Sons of the American Revolution for over a quarter of a cen- 
tury, who performed until the last day official duties with an energy 
and a faithfulness that characterized his entire life. The memorial 
adopted by your Executive Committee can only indicate the great esteem 
and affection which he justly merited. 

Progress. 

We meet today, as official reports will show, better organized and 
equipped, stronger financially and numerically than ever before. 

Organization. 

Your favorable consideration is asked for the proposed amendments 
to our Constitution; one provides for a junior membership; the other 
elevates the members of the National Executive Committee to Directors 
General, thus giving them an official standing as members of the Con- 
gress. 

Patriotic Legislation. 

This field of patriotic endeavor should be cultivated by our Society 
and a Committee on Patriotic Legislation appointed to secure Federal 
enactment of laws to enforce proper respect for the flag of our Repub- 
lic, to safeguard our institutions of American freedom, to teach the 
alien, and also, if necessary, the citizen, his duty to this Nation and its 
people, so that the spirit of America shall be the example and the hope 
of the world. 

The Committee on Patriotic Legislation in the Empire State Society, 
Sons of the American Revolution, placed upon the statutes of New 
York State laws providing that the American flag shall on registration 
and election days be displayed at every polling place; that the custody 
of the Nicholas Herkimer Homestead shall be entrusted to native-born 
citizens ; repealing the charter of the German-American Alliance ; pre- 
venting the display in public of the red flag of anarchy; prohibiting the 
building of a penal institution on the site of Fort Clinton, of the Revo- 
lutionary period. 

The appeal of your President General for the removal on the facade 
of the New York Custom-house of the allegorical figure of Germania 
bearing the shield of Kaiser Wilhelm II was acceded to by the Secre- 
tary of the Treasury and in place thereof the custom-house is adorned 
by the symbolic figure of Belgium. 

The time is ripe for a Federal enactment making it obligatory for 
every newspaper enjoying special mailing privileges of our Government 
to print on the editorial page of each issue, in the language of the pub- 
lication, this statement of loyalty: 

"We pledge allegiance to the United States flag and to the Republic 
for which it stands: one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice to

It may be the part of wisdom to demand by Federal legislation that 
aliens shall not be naturalized until they are sufficiently familiar with 
the language of this country as to read and write good English. This 
will make for Americanization. 

The American's Creed. 

This statement of an American citizen's duties and obligations, com- 
posed by Compatriot William Tyler Page, was approved by our Na- 
tional Society at its last Congress. 

The report of the Committee on the Dissemination of the Creed 
should have your deepest interest and hearty support. 

Service Medals. 

The National Society has caused to be struck bronze service medals, 
to be presented to all compatriots and sons of compatriots who served 
in the World War defending the liberties of civilized nations. These 
medals may now be procured from the office of the Secretary General 
by the various State Societies. The cost is $1.00 each. It is suggested 
that the presentation be made with some formality, in the presence of 
a National Society officer. 

Constitution Day. 

The Sons of the American Revolution again call attention to Sep- 
tember 17th as the anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution of 
the United States and urge that our local Chapters invite the co-oper- 
ation of other patriotic societies, to the end that the day may be fittingly 
observed. 

Certificates of Membership. 

There ought to be issued to all compatriots certificates of member- 
ship, and I trust the Congress will instruct each State Society to issue 
same to newly elected members. These framed certificates of member- 
ship find prominent places in the homes and offices of our compatriots. 
They are a daily reminder of the patriotic purposes and objects of our 
Society. 

No report can pay fitting tribute to the efficient service rendered this 
Society by the various committees and officers with whom it has been 
my honor to be associated during these past twelve months. 

Special mention should be made of the work of the Vice-Presidents 
General. 

From January 1st the office of Secretary General has been ably filled 
by Compatriot William S. Parks, of the District of Columbia Society, 
and Compatriot T. D. Huntting, the efficient Registrar of the Empire 
State Society, has fittingly discharged the duties of the office of the 
Registrar General. These gentlemen have labored industriously for the 
good of our Society without salaries and without price. The salaries 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 91 

of these officers have gone to Mrs. A. Howard Clark, who has greatly 
assisted in the work. The hearty and sincere thanks of the Society are 
due these compatriots for their great service rendered and for their 
gracious acts. 

The thanks of our Society are also due Compatriot Walcott, of the 
Smithsonian Institution, for his generosity in putting at our disposal 
rooms at the National Museum as a depository for our archives. 

Americanism. 

During the past year, at home and abroad, the spirit of Americanism 
has been written large. 

Sons of the American Revolution desire an intelligent and patriotic 
membership, ever eager to champion the principles that insure life more 
abundant, liberty eternal, and happiness found in service to the common 
good. 

To be worthy sons of noble sires, to be respected brothers of those 
compatriots who in France and on Flanders Fields gave their all that 
the ideals of America should triumph, our efforts should be devoted to 
the end that every citizen of this democracy shall have unrestrained 
opportunity to develop to complete capacity, that this Republic shall be 
an exemplar for the nations of the earth in their onward march for 
human rights and justice. 

The Chair: This report will be referred to the Committee on Official 
Reports. I would like the liberty of inquiring, from one of the local 
compatriots, if they can inform the Congress the hour at which the 
welcome will be extended to the returning heroes, that we may take 
a recess and pay our respects to them as they march by? (Applause.) 

A Compatriot: I think, Mr. President General, if you will allow one 
of us to retire and find out, we will bring you the answer in a few 
minutes. 

The Chair : Thank you very much, if you will do so. I call for the 
report of Vice-President General Charles F. Read, of Massachusetts. 

Compatriot Charles F. Read: Mr. President General and Com- 
patriots : I will not make a formal address. I will say that during the 
past year I had some correspondence with other States, but have no 
formal report to make. 

The Chair: We thank Vice-President General Read for his report. 
The Secretary has taken it down and it will be referred to the Com- 
mittee on Official Reports. Vice-President General Williams, of New 
Jersey. 

Compatriot Williams: I am sorry to say that I have prepared no 
written report of my official duties during the past year, but the report 
will be rendered later by Compatriot Lewis B. Curtis, who will in- 
corporate in his report the activities of the Vice-President , General 
along the lines of increased membership. I have done what I could 



92 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

during these strenuous times of the past year, in which every business 
man has been more or less involved, and I am sorry that our work, as 
planned out a year ago, I have been unable to prosecute to my satis- 
faction. I have attended quite a number of meetings in our own State 
Society, in New Jersey and others, but I have been handicapped more 
or less by the troubles that we have gone through during the past year. 
(Applause.) 

The Chair: I will ask the members of the Color Guard to kindly 
take our flags, and with your permission we will now declare a recess 
until after the boys have passed by, and then you will please return 
promptly to the room. 

(Recess of a half hour.) 

Upon reassembling called to order by President General. 

The Chair : Will the compatriots kindly be seated, and we will pro- 
ceed with the business of the Congress. May I inquire if Vice-Presi- 
dent General Henry is in the room? He was here a minute ago. While 
we are waiting for his appearance, I would like the privilege, if it 
meets with your approval, of asking the Secretary General to send the 
greetings and best wishes of our Congress to the Past Presidents 
General who are not with us today, among whom are General Greeley, 
General Porter, Mr. Marble, and Mr. Murphy. Both of the ones I 
first mentioned have reached an advanced age in life, which would 
make it a hardship for them to be with us, and Mr. Marble is not well 
at this time. Mr. Franklin Murphy will not be able to get here, and I 
know all our Past Presidents General would appreciate greatly a mes- 
sage from the Congress. If that is your wish, messages will be sent. 

Compatriot TorbErt, of the District of Columbia: I make a motion 
that the Secretary General be directed to send a note or a telegram to 
each Past President General, expressing our regards. 

Compatriot Guthrie (Pa.) : I suggest that you add to that list the 
name of General Hancock. 

The Chair: General Hancock's name was included. The motion is 
that the Secretary General be instructed to send a telegram of greet- 
ing to all of the Past Presidents General who are not in attendance. 

The motion was seconded and unanimously adopted. 

The Chair: I have the pleasure of introducing the Vice-President 
General of this district, Hon. Albert M. Henry, whom we all love. 
(Applause.) 

Compatriot Henry: Now, gentlemen, we invited you here with good 
hearts and strength and we have worked to make this Congress a suc- 
cess. There is a motto which you will find on your badge, "If you 
would seek a beautiful peninsula, come here." Look around. All 
you've got to do is to look around you and see whether it is all that 
we have told you. In a day or two we will take you around in auto- 
mobiles, and we are going to show you a beautiful place, provided it 
don't rain. We are going to take you along the boulevard and show 
you our magnificent automobile factories. We make more automobiles 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 93 

in Detroit than in all the rest of the country put together. Now, you 
ask me to speak to you about my duties as Vice-President General. 
I confess I have not done much. I have been down in Ohio and seen 
the Society there, talked to them about our Committee on Publicity and 
new membership and all that, and I have been to Mexico, but I really 
think I should have devoted more time than I have done. I hope you 
will be satisfied with what we have to show you in this City of the 
Straits. 

The Chair : I regret to say that our Vice-Presidents General from 
the Pacific Coast and from the Southern District are not with us 
today. The Secretary General informs me that there is no report from 
Frank W. Rawles, the Vice-President General of the Southern District, 
the President of the Arkansas Society, nor have we a report as yet 
from Compatriot Thomas A. Perkins, Past President of the California 
Society and Vice-President General from that district. We may have 
these reports in a later mail, so I will pass on to the report of the 
Secretary General, Compatriot William S. Parks. (Applause.) 

Secretary General Parks submitted his report. 

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY GENERAL. 

The Secretary General has the honor to report that during the brief 
period — four and one-half months — that he has served the National 
Society as Secretary General he has endeavored to do his full duty 
as an officer of the Society, and that during that time he has had the 
hearty support of the President General, the members of the Executive 
Committee, and the general officers of the Society. To them, to all 
of them, he is under very great obligations, and he takes this oppor- 
tunity to express his deep and earnest appreciation of their courtesy 
and helpfulness. To step into the place of such an accomplished, ex- 
perienced, and competent Secretary General as our beloved compatriot, 
A. Howard Clark, almost without notice and without experience, was 
most trying, to say the least. His aptitude, his training, and his years 
of service as your Secretary General had brought to the office a ripe- 
ness of judgment, a readiness of knowledge, and a capacity for accom- 
plishment that can hardly be realized or appreciated except, possibly, 
by comparison. 

Notwithstanding the fact that more than six months have elapsed 
since the armistice was signed, the activities of the National Society 
have increased in volume and the work — war work — growing out of 
the World War has not diminished to any appreciable extent. We have 
turned our attention to the problems growing out of the war, to the 
dangers that confront the stricken nations of Europe and to the 
menace to our own security, to our own institutions, to our Govern- 
ment. If ever there was need for such an organization as the Sons 
of the American Revolution, it is now, in order that this Nation under 
God should continue to have a new birth of freedom, and that govern- 



94 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

ment of the people, by the people, and for the people should not perish 
from the earth. 

The work of the State Societies has been outlined in the quarterly 
bulletins that have been issued since the last Annual Congress. Of 
these, only the March Bulletin has been issued since the death of 
Compatriot Clark. Reference to the special efforts need not therefore 
be repeated. It might be said, however, that State Societies and local 
Chapters can aid the editor to a very great extent by keeping him ad- 
vised of their work and progress along patriotic lines. 

Two amendments to the Constitution have been proposed for action 
at this Congress. I will not read them at this time, as they have been 
printed in full in the last Bulletin. At the proper time and in the 
regular order of business they will be laid before the Congress. 

The applications of 1,220 new members have been received during 
the year ended March 31. The net gain in membership was 525. A 
full and detailed report will be made by the Registrar General. 

The volume of correspondence has increased enormously. The letters 
cover almost every subject, appertaining to love of country, patriotism, 
membership, genealogy, naturalization, the Constitution, and the cur- 
rent work of the various State Societies. 

The Secretary General departs somewhat from the usual practice in 
refraining from making any recommendations as to the general policy 
of the Society. There is room, however, for an abundance of work 
and well-directed effort in promoting the interests and success of this 
great organization. 

In connection with his report, the Secretary General made the fol- 
lowing extemporaneous remarks in reference to the late A. Howard Clark, 
late Secretary General : 

He rendered to this National Society the last full measure of devo- 
tion. Of him it may be said, as Halleck said of Admiral Drake: 

"Green be the turf above thee, 
Friend of my former days ; 
None knew thee but to love thee, 
Nor named thee but to praise." 

It was my privilege to know A. Howard Clark for 38 years. I have 
been a member of the Society for a dozen years or more, and during 
my incumbency of the office of President of the District of Columbia 
Society he was to me a tower of strength. During the time that has 
elapsed since his demise I have had the advantage of the suggestions 
not only of the general officers of the Society to whom I have deferred, 
but to the widow of A. Howard Clark. The office of Secretary General 
and Registrar General, as you well know, has been combined in the 
person of our deceased brother and friend. Mrs. Clark is an honorary 
Vice-President General of the National Society of the Daughters of 
the American Revolution ad vitam, is an accomplished genealogist, 
and I think at one time was the Registrar General and Corresponding 
Secretary General of the National Society of the D. A. R. To her I 



PROCEEDINGS OE DETROIT CONGRESS. 95 

have gone for assistance, and I wish to say here, before this assemblage 
of our compatriots from all parts of the country, that to her is due 
most of the credit in connection with the work of the Registrar General. 

The duties of Secretary General I have taken up to the best of my 
ability, and I have endeavored, as I said, not only to carry out the 
wishes of the Society, but to do full justice to the work that has been 
presented to me. It is now more than six months since the armistice 
was signed, and the activities of the National Society of the Sons of the 
American Revolution, as measured by the work of the Secretary Gen- 
eral, have increased enormously. I do not think that any of you can 
appreciate what it is to have a growing and live society, officered in 
the presidency and in its committees by men who take not only a 
personal interest, but who do not hesitate to aid pecuniarily the Society 
in the best way to insure its success and its prosperity. We have turned 
our attention to the problem growing out of the war, to the dangers 
that confront the stricken nations of Europe, and to the menace to 
our security, to our institutions, to our Government. If ever there 
was need for such an organization as the Sons of the American Revo- 
lution, it is now, that this Nation under God should continue to have 
a new birth of freedom, and that government by the people should not 
perish from the earth. In the report of the Registrar General his 
figures and mine may not agree exactly, but the difference may be 
explained by the fact that some belated reports have added to the 
sum total of the figures as prepared for the Registrar General. The 
volume of correspondence has increased enormously. It is a rare day 
that the mail-box is not filled with letters for the attention of the 
Secretary General ; and those letters, compatriots, are the most wonder- 
ful collection of letters that a man could look over. They cover almost 
every subject, pertaining to love of country, patriotism, general in- 
formation, Americanization, naturalization, and the Constitution of the 
United States and work of the State Societies and Chapters. 

As I said to the President General several months ago, let us take 
a leaf out of the activities, out of the things that the Daughters do; 
let us organize local Chapters that promote companionship and make us 
feel that we have something to live for besides correspondence with 
some compatriot in a distant city about the details .of the organization. 
This, to me, has been a remarkable exhibition of what the Society of 
the Daughters has done, what this Society can do, and what we should 
do as compatriots of this great Society of the Sons of the American 
Revolution. We have more than 17,000 members on the active rolls, to 
say nothing of nearly as many more who have ceased to be active in 
the membership of the Society. Let us ever keep in mind the fact that 
this great war, happily, has resulted as it has; that it has put us in a 
position where we lead the world; that it has been made possible by 
the work and by the acts and by the things that were done by the pro- 
genitors of the Sons of the American Revolution. (Applause.) 



96 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

The Chair: The report of the Secretary General is received, the 
thanks of the Congress tendered to him, and the report will be re- 
ferred to the Committee on Official Reports, if there be no objections. 
Hearing none, it is so ordered. I call for the report of the Registrar 
General, Mr. Teunis D. Huntting. (Applause.) 

The report was presented as follows : 

REPORT OF REGISTRAR GENERAL. 

Your Registrar General has the honor to report that since the 
founding of this Society, just thirty years ago on April 30, 1889, more 
than 32,000 applications have been approved and the same number of 
members enrolled. Added to this, about five thousand supplemental 
papers have been approved; so that a great fund of historical data 
relating to those who established the independence of our country is 
contained in the archives of our Society. 

There were registered during the year ending March 31, 1919, 1,248 
new members, which, with the exception of last year, has exceeded the 
work of any of the previous years and is an average of more than 100 
new members a month. Nineteen former members have been reinstated. 
New Jersey added the greatest number this year — 141 — the Empire State 
Society being next with 1 18, Louisiana following with 113, and Massa- 
chusetts no new members. In the present active membership, Massa- 
chusetts still takes the lead, having 1,770 active members ; New York 
is second in size, having 1,594; New Jersey, 1,433; Illinois, 1,182, and 
Connecticut, 1,084. The details in gains and losses for each State are 
as follows :

98 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

This makes a total active membership, after deducting losses, April 
1, 1919, of 16,201, a net gain of 548. While the losses from various 
causes have been large, it is gratifying to note that even from this year 
of war and pestilence through which we have passed the losses by 
death have been but 168 as against 258 of last year. Death has claimed 
41 of our Massachusetts members and 39 from New York State. The 
Society received this year the greatest shock of its existence, when, on 
New Year's Eve, death claimed for its own the managing head of the 
Society — the one who since 1893 had served as Secretary General and 
Registrar General, and who during all those succeeding years had never 
missed attendance upon these Congresses and had always been ready 
to assist each incoming President General with his wide experience 
and good judgment in affairs pertaining to the organization — A. Howard 
Clark. A few days later the country was called upon to mourn the 
death of Col. Theodore Roosevelt, ex-President of the United States 
and a member of the Empire State Society. Among others who have 
passed away are Admiral Thomas Perry, of Maryland; Mr. Chris- 
topher Rhodes, for 25 years Secretary of the Rhode Island Society; 
Hon. Herman W. Pratt, of Massachusetts; Hon. Edward Everett Roll- 
ings, member of Congress, Pennsylvania Society: Hon. Hendrick 
Holden and Hon. William C. Cady, of the Empire State Society; Gen- 
eral Edward Davis, of the Hawaiian Society, and two of our rapidly 
diminishing list of Real Sons of Revolutionary soldiers, one being the 
last on record in the State of Rhode Island. Among our members who 
have died honorably in the service of our country are Major Lyman 
W. V. Keenon, U. S. Army, and Captain Frederick S. Towle, of the 
District of Columbia Society; Captain Merritt U. Lamb, of the Michi- 
gan Society: Lieutenant Walter Stillmrn, of the Nebraska Society: 
Second Lieutenant George Gaylor MacNish, of the Wisconsin Society, 
and Lieutenant Louis Hamilton Bayly, of the District of Columbia 
Society, only son of the late William Hamilton Bayly, at one time 
Vice-President General of the National Society. 

A few years ago a Traveling Banner was presented by the Colorado 
Society, to be awarded each year to the State numbering 100 or more 
which can show the greatest net percentage of increase in membership. 
This has never been won by any State in the Far South. This year, 
however, Louisiana will have the honor of receiving this trophy, having 
made the enormous percentage of increase of 1084/5, this Society hav- 
ing- more than doubled its membership during the oast year. 

The Syracuse Banner, to be awarded to that Society showing the 
largest increase in membership during the year, was won last year from 
New Jersey by the Massachusetts Society, who will now return it to 
New Jersey, that State having a record of 141 new members. 

At the beginning of this year President General Ames generously 
offered to award a silk banner bearing the name of the State Society, 
and to be held by it in perpetuity to each Society, that increased its 
membership 20 per cent during the year ending March 31, 1919, pro- 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 99 

vided the increase would not be less than 10 over the number of mem- 
bers reported April i, 1918. This banner has been won by the follow- 
ing States : 

Louisiana, 1084/5 P er cent; Oklahoma increased 28^ per cent; Mis- 
souri, 27^ per cent; Arkansas, 25 per cent; Idaho, 24 per cent'; Wis- 
consin, 223/10 per cent; Utah, 21^2 per cent. 

In 1901, through the generosity of the late President General Logan, 
of New York, there was prepared and published a large volume con- 
taining the full pedigrees of every member up to that time. This work 
has been continued in the Year Book, and an abstract of each pedigree, 
together with the ancestor's service, now appears in the quarterly Bul- 
letin. The card catalogue of both members and ancestors is being 
continued ; the card of notification of enrollment, commenced last year, 
is being sent out and permits for badges have been issued to each new 
member. Added to this routine work, 690 certificates of membership 
have been engrossed. 

Now that the war is ended and our young men are returning to their 
homes, let the States redouble their efforts to secure as members many 
of those whose patriotism has been awakened by the actual sacrifices 
and sufferings for their country, and many of whom must be, no doubt, 
eligible to membership in the Sons of the American Revolution. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Teunis D. Huntting, 

Registrar General. 

The Chair: The report of the Registrar General is received, the 
thanks of the Congress extended to the Registrar General, and the 
report will go to the Committee on Official Reports and Recommenda- 
tions, unless otherwise advised by the Congress. Not hearing any ob- 
jection, it is so ordered. Is the Treasurer General ready to report at 

this time? „, 

Treasurer General Burroughs: I know that the report of the Ireas- 
urer General is not very interesting, because it has only figures to pre- 
sent to this body of compatriots; therefore I am not going to elaborate 
by any remarks before the report, in its proper form, is presented to 
you. I wish, however, to say that there are a greater number of State 
societies this year that have failed to pay their annual dues than for 
any year I have been Treasurer, and that covers a term of ten years. 
I regret to make such a report, but I think it should be put upon the 
report of the Treasurer General that that is the fact. The Treasurer 
General tries to get the annual dues collected early in April and he is 
handicapped to a great degree when those dues are held back until the 
very last moment and the last day. There were five remittances re- 
ceived on the day before and the last day of the fiscal year, and 1 
places upon the Treasurer General considerable work to get his report 
in time for the Auditing Committee on the following day, and I would 
urge here, in this Congress, that the State Treasurers help out the

Treasurer General by sending in the remittances early, when the bills 
are sent to them. 

Treasurer General Burroughs then presented the following report,

are received and referred to the Committee on Official Reports. If 
there be no objection, this course will be followed. Hearing none, it 
is so ordered. 

Compatriot Bacon (N. Y.) : I would like to ask one question. In 
the investment of these funds, permanent funds, is there any rule of 
the Society as to the class of investments that the money shall be

The Treasurer General : I will answer the gentleman from New 
York. The Investment Committee has to invest in such securities as 
are acceptable to the savings banks of the State of New York. 

The Chair : The Congress will take a recess until 2 o'clock. 



Thirtieth Annual Congress,

The Chair: The Secretary General will please read a telegram that

The Secretary General: This telegram is from the President Gen- 
eral of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revo- 
lution and is as follows : 

Independence, Kans., May 18, 1919. 
Louis Annix Ames, 

President General, N. S. S. A. R., Hotel Statler, Detroit, Mich.: 

The Daughters of the American Revolution, through their President 
General, send greetings to the Sons of the American Revolution in 
Congress assembled and wish them a most successful Congress. 

Sarah E. Guernsey, 
President General, N. S. D. A. R. 

The Chair: In the business of the morning, we were receiving the 
reports of the general officers. We will now have the report of the 
Historian General, Compatriot George Carpenter Arnold, of Provi- 
dence, R. I. 

The Historian General submitted the following report: 

REPORT OF THE HISTORIAN GENERAL. ■ 

Mr. President General and Compatriots of the Thirtieth Annual Con- 
gress of the Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, 
Greeting : 
The history of Detroit is closely interwoven with that of the whole 
Northwest, for its settlement is one of the earliest in America. 

Visited by the French and explored by them as early as 1610, they 
saw that the swiftly flowing waters of the Detroit River were a minia- 
ture Straits of Gibraltar. 



108 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Their admiration of the fertility of the soil, the fine hunting grounds, 
and the grandeur of the forests was Nature's invitation to the first 
visitors. 

The first European locating at this point was a native of France, a 
man of nohle birth, named De La Mothe Cadillac, who took up his 
abode here in 1701, under the rule of France. Cadillac proved himself a 
man of great capacity and immediately proceeded to the work of 
settlement. 

Trees were cut down and a fort about 200 feet square built on the 
banks of the river, near the spot where the Michigan Mutual Life In- 
surance Co. Building is now located, which he named Fort Ponchartrain 
in honor of the colonial minister. In the spring of 1712 Cadillac left 
Detroit, having been appointed the first Governor of Louisiana. 

Within a short time hostile Indians surrounded the fort, seeking to 
dislodge the French ; but the French traders soon demonstrated that 
they were willing to deal more liberally than the English, and thus the 
Indians soon had cause to regret their change of masters, for the 
English always practiced a cruel policy. 

The French and English struggled long for the control of the West- 
ern Continent. The victory of Wolfe at Quebec in 1759 and the subse- 
quent surrender of Detroit did not please the Indians, and in 1763 
Pontiac, a powerful Ottawa chief, formed the intention of expelling 
the English and besieged the fort. It lasted nearly four months and 
was full of incidents of the most stirring character. 

In the meantime the war clouds of the Revolution were gathering. 
Detroit was the center of British power in the Northwest, and a fort 
was erected as an English outpost in 1778, as a defense against the 
Americans, afterward called Fort Shelby, the present site of the post- 
office. 

King George, fearing the hardy settlers of western Virginia and 
Tennessee would aid their brother colonists in the East, planned, and 
from here sent forth, Indian expeditions to harass them, furnishing the 
Indians with guns, scalping knives, and tomahawks. 

Governor Hamilton, then in command, went forth from here with a 
force of British and Indians in the fall of 1778 to protect British in- 
terests, and was with his whole force captured at Vincennes the fol- 
lowing February. 

In 1783 Detroit was yielded by the Treaty of Paris with Great 
Britain, after a seven years' struggle of blood and tears, to the United 
States, but the British did not evacuate until July 11, 1706, at which 
time Gen. Anthony Wayne's army, under Captain Porter, took full 
possession and for the first time raised over the fort the American 
flag. 

The animosities growing out of the Revolution were not allayed by 
the peace declarations, duly signed at Paris, which declared therein 
that these colonies "were, and of right ought to be," free and inde- 
pendent States. But the autocratic King George III of Great Britain 
(himself a German) maintained "That once a subject, always a sub- 
ject," and thus the treaty of peace became "a scrap of paper," the Brit- 
ish regaining possession of Detroit August 16, 1812. 

Major General Ross and his torch-bearers attacked the National 
Capital, wantonly destroying the public edifices, some of these being 
costly monuments and depositories of the public archives, not only 
precious to the Nation as the memorials of its origin and early trans- 
actions, but to all nations, from a historical standpoint. Of the public 
buildings only the post-office was saved from the barbarous conflagra- 
tion. The Britons, "the paragons of perfect men," as sung by their 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. IOO. 

own Spencer, in the nineteenth Christian century plundered the houses 
and stores, committing acts of vandalism and atrocities against the 
young republic no less brutal and inhumane than the Jersey prison- 
ship "martyrs" experienced twenty-five years before, which constituted 
one of the most frightful chapters in American history. These and 
many more outrages committed it would wrong history not to record 
and civilization not to reprobate. 

Detroit remained in possession of the British until September 29, 
1813, when, as one of the results of Commodore Perry's notable and 
decisive victory of September 10, 1813, on Lake Erie, the English were 
driven out of the country and the English flag was replaced by the 
Stars and Stripes by General Harrison and the city again became 
American. 

But the Detroit of today I may well leave in your hands, as the evi- 
dence is sufficient to convince all that she is not only a historical city 
in a pre-eminent degree, but a progressive city — progressive in popula- 
tion, commerce, manufactures, wealth, education — in fact, in all those 
elements that constitute a truly great and prosperous city, for more 
tonnage passes annually through "the Detroit River than in the same 
time enters and clears the combined ports of London and Liverpool." 

The descendants of the soldiers of the American Revolution have 
truly ascended to protect and preserve the great principle upon which 
George Washington devoted his life and upon which America is based — 
liberty. Washington now belongs to humanity. 

Faithful to the memory of Lafayette and his country, America went 
to the aid of France, because France herself was faithful to her 
traditions, and through unity of action and the noble humanity of 
America the great victory was won. 

A. Howard Clark. 

I would pause now for a moment, for during the S. A. R. year just 
ending, very peacefully, on Thursday, December 31, 1918, passed from 
earth to his reward the spirit of our late and distinguished Secretary 
General and Registrar General, A. Howard Clark. Compatriot Clark 
was born in Boston, April 30, 1850, and became a member of the 
District of Columbia Society at its organization, in 1890; he was elected 
Assistant Registrar General May 5, 1890, and was one of its Secretaries 
from 1891 to 1893. In 1892 he was elected Secretary General of the 
National Society, and in 1893, at Chicago, he was elected Registrar 
General, serving in that capacity over a quarter of a century. 

At the St. Louis Congress, in 1904, he was elected Secretary General, 
performing the joint duties of Secretary General and Registrar General 
until his death. Educated at Boston and at Wesleyan University, Mid- 
dletown. Conn., the university in 1906 gave Compatriot Clark the honor- 
ary degree of Master of Arts. 

From 1867 to 1875 he was engaged in the mercantile business^ in New 
York City, in 1879 was assistant on the U. S. Fish Commission, and 
later expert on the Tenth Census. 

From 1881 and to the time 'of his death he was connected with the 
Smithsonian Institution as Curator of the Division of History in. the 
National Museum and as editor of the publications of the institution. 

In 1883 he served on the executive staff of the U. S. Commission at 
the International Fisheries Exposition in London, and was a U. S. 
expert commissioner to the Paris Exposition of 1889 by appointment 
of President Cleveland, when he was honored by order of President 
Carnot with the decoration of Officier du Merite Agricole of France. 



IIO SONS OF THF AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Compatriot Clark held membership in many patriotic societies, his 
life was one of great activity and usefulness and his prominence in 
national and international affairs and in social and patriotic societies 
brought around him a large circle of acquaintances. Firm in his con- 
victions of duty, he maintained the principles for which he stood with 
an adherence and persistency that emulated the sturdy spirit of his 
ancestors. 

Compatriot Clark is survived by a widow and two sons. The oldest 
son, Chester Morrow Clark, is a member of the Sons of the American 
Revolution, and the youngest son, Howard Sears Perry Clark, is a 
member of the Washington Guard. His wife, Alice Morrow Clark, 
was one of the 18 original organizers of the Daughters of the American 
Revolution, October II, 1890; its Registrar General from 1890 to 1892; 
Vice-President General in 1894, and in 1895 was elected Honorary Vice- 
President General for life. 

Numismatics. 

My interest in numismatics prompts me to record briefly President 
Washington's personal supervision of the first United States mint, the 
building being the first ever erected by authority of Congress for a 
public purpose. 

By the act of April 2, 1792, a mint for the purpose of national 
coinage was authorized to be established in Philadelphia ( then the 
capital of the United States) : the names the coins were to be known 
by, also their values, weights, and finenesses, were adopted, and thus 
were banished from the free Union of States the English pounds, 
shillings, pence, and farthings forever. 

The national coinage was a subject in which Washington exhibited 
the greatest interest, and immediately after the act of April, 1792, he 
caused the purchase of an L-shaped piece of ground on Seventh Street, 
midway between Arch and Market streets, and now known and num- 
bered 37 and 39 North Seventh and 631 Filbert street. 

On the 31st the foundation stone of the mint was laid and early in 
October President Washington gave some of his private plate to fur- 
nish the silver from which the first half dimes were coined. All bore 
the supposed portrait of Martha Washington on the obverse and date 
1792, of which your historian has taken from his cabinet a specimen, 
which he will be glad to exhibit to the compatriots after the meeting. 




In Washington's fourth annual address to Congress, November 6. 
1792, he makes mention of this first coinage as follows: 
"There has been a small beginning in coinage of half dimes," etc. 
Washington made the mint almost a "hobby," referring to it fre- 
quently in his official communications, visiting it constantly, and super- 
vising its every detail. The regular series of the United States coinage 
commenced the following year, 1793. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Geo. C. Arnold, 
Historian General. 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. Ill 

The Chair: Our Historian General merits the thanks of the Con- 
gress. The report is received, and referred to the Committee on Offi- 
cial Reports, unless otherwise advised. It is so ordered. 

In the reading of the President's report this morning, the statement 
was made that your Executive Committee had presented a memorial on 
the death of our late Secretary General, A. Howard Clark. It was 
ordered printed in the Bulletin and a copy sent to Mrs. Clark. There 
was no engrossment ordered of that memorial. It was thought that if 
it were the wish of this Congress, that that resolution should be your 
spoken word of sympathy and esteem, you would pass a motion for it 
to be engrossed. Perhaps you would prefer that another resolution 
should come from the floor of the Congress and be engrossed and sent 
to Mrs. Clark as your expression of sympathy. That is the reason why 
the engrossment was not made, and I call the same to your attention 
at this time. 

Compatriot Bacon (N. Y.) : It seems to me that the services ren- 
dered by Mr. Clark should be recognized by us as suggested by the 
Executive Committee, and, further than that, the memorial should be 
engrossed and presented to his wife in testimony of our respect for 
him. I move that the resolution be engrossed and presented to the 
widow of Mr. Clark. 

(Motion seconded.) 

Compatriot Torbert (D. C.) : I appreciate the dignity of the me- 
morial that was gotten up by the Executive Committee. I also appre- 
ciate that, on such occasions as that, the death of a beloved husband 
means much to his widow. I think I am heartily in sympathy with the 
motion to have those resolutions or that memorial engrossed hand- 
somely and presented to the widow from the Executive Committee of 
this Society. It is their work, their sentiment, etc. I also think that 
this body, as a Congress, should take some separate action, and I think 
the memorial and the separate resolutions presented from the Congress 
would have an added weight with the widow ; so I would suggest that 
not only the memorial gotten up by the Executive Committee be en- 
grossed, but also that this National Congress now assembled draw up 
suitable resolutions to present to the widow. 

Compatriot Bacon : My idea in making the motion was that the reso- 
lution as drawn by the Executive Committee should be endorsed by 
this Congress and be engrossed, which would cover the points that our 
friend from Washington makes. That is my idea of it and that is the 
reason that I made the motion. 

The Chair : The vote is on the motion that the resolution passed by 
the Executive Board be engrossed and the copy forwarded to Mrs. 
Clark as the expression of this Congress. 

(The motion was unanimously adopted.) 

The Chair: I now ask for the reading of the minutes of the last 
Congress. The minutes of the last Congress were printed in the Year 



112 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Book, but the Constitution provides for the reading of a draft of those 
minutes, if it is the desire of the Congress. 

It was moved and seconded that the reading of the minutes be dis- 
pensed with, inasmuch as they had already been printed. 

The Chair : I presume that motion will carry with it the adoption 
of the minutes as printed. Do I so understand? 

(The maker of the motion assented.) 

The Chair : The Chair understands that the motion is that we omit 
the reading of the minutes of the 29th Congress, and that the minutes 
stand approved as printed in the Year Book. 

(The motion was adopted.) 

The Chair: We will take up the report of the Memorial Committee, 
of which Past President General R. C. Ballard Thruston is chairman. 
(Applause.) 

REPORT OF THE MEMORIAL COMMITTEE. 

Compatriot Thruston : Some two years ago or a little over I was 
made chairman of our local Chapter, in Louisville, of the Red Cross, 
and a year later Assistant Manager Lake Division, A. R. C, for the State 
of Kentucky. The past two years of my life have been given up to 
Red Cross work. I have allowed nothing whatever to stand in the 
way — social, family, nor anything else; so my entire time has been 
devoted to that instead of to the work of the Memorial Committee. 

When I was named, two years ago, as chairman of this committee I 
declined. Mr. Clark wrote me, urging me to reconsider. I again de- 
clined. Mr. Clark again put it to me in a way that I could not decline, 
and he said, "If j r ou will allow your name to be at the head of the 
committee, I will promise you that I will do the work." Now he was 
Secretary of the American Historical Association for twenty years. I 
was very, very close to him and one of his most sincere admirers in 
our whole organization, and as a result I was willing to lend my name 
to any work that Mr. Clark would do, and there is no one, aside from 
his own immediate family, who will miss him more than I will. I sin- 
cerely regret his death. 

I made a trip into Virginia recently, a trip really for a rest, as a rest 
is a change of occupation and a change of scene. In my case it was a 
change of scene, and the use of different brain cells from those I had 
been using before, and I will promise you they were used just as 
actively as the others were. On this trip I tried to locate the birthplaces 
and the burial places of some of those Signers of the Declaration whose 
burial places are unknown. 

It is rather singular, but of those whom Virginia had as the Signers 
of the Declaration, the burial place of Carter Braxton is not known. 
I visited his birthplace, on the Mattaponi River, with a beautiful lawn in 
front, extending for nearly half a mile. The old house is gone. It was 
built by his grandfather and inherited by his father and by his elder 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. ' 113 

brother; and in this connection let me state that in the general gene- 
alogies of that period there is a generation missing; his father is left 
out. From them he acquired this place considerably later in life. Just 
about the period of arriving at the age of 21 he bought a place known 
as Ensing Green. Shortly afterward he went over to Cambridge Uni- 
versity. While he was gone, Ensing Green was burned, or rather the 
interior. The walls in the basement were forty inches thick, so they 
are still standing. On two occasions that house was burned and has 
been rebuilt without having to rebuild those walls. He bought it in 
1758 and on one of the bricks are the marks of his initials and the date. 
But he did not like it after he returned from England and sold it. His 
grandfather was buried at Mattaponi Church, which was abandoned 
during the Revolutionary War and not reoccupied as a church until 
1828. It is not probable that he was buried there. 

I have succeeded, therefore, in eliminating three of the supposed 
burial places of Carter Braxton. He built, after selling Ensing Green, 
only a few miles distant, a beautiful place. There are two burial 
grounds, one down near Pamunkey River, in the bottom, which is quite 
wet in damp weather and in which many of the family were buried. 
Another on higher ground, in which Carter Braxton's own son was 
buried, but his remains were later removed to Richmond. I find no 
evidence of Carter Braxton being buried there. 

The facts are that he was a member of Congress until 1795 ; then he 
returned to find his home burned down. He lived in Richmond and 
died there in 1797. I want to state that the President of our Virginia 
Society, the Hon. Arthur B. Clarke, who is here today, is making a 
search to see if in one or two of the old burial grounds in Richmond 
he cannot find evidence of Carter Braxton's burial. 

It is singular that his descendants, proud of the fact that they are 
Braxtons, carrying the Braxton as a part of their name to this day, do 
not know where their Revolutionary ancestor was buried. 

The grave of George Wythe is located in St. John's Church. There 
is a little dispute as to which of two spots is the identical one. It 
makes very little difference, because the head of one spot will be the 
foot of the other. I have reason to believe that in the reasonably near 
future our Virginia Society will make efforts to locate the exact spot 
of the grave and erect there a headstone, suitable to the other head- 
stones in St. John's Churchyard, to the memory of Wythe, one of the 
greatest chancellors Virginia ever produced. 

I went out to Berkeley, the home of Benjamin Harrison, where five 
generations of that same name resided, and there I failed to find any 
evidence of the burial spot of the Signer of the Declaration. His 
grandfather was buried not far away, at Westover Church— the old 
site of that church. The river has infringed and was undermining the 
old church, and it was moved two or three miles away. It is at the 
old site of the church that old Benjamin Harrison is buried. There 
are the slabs covering the remains of him and his wife, and also William 
Byrd, of Westover, and his wife and granddaughter, Evelyn. 



114 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

I hope through our Virginia Society and through our friends in Vir- 
ginia to obtain information as to where the family papers are, in order 
that this committee in the future may be able to work out that history 
of which we now know so little. Again we will have to have the cur- 
rent newspapers of the day searched. 

Unfortunately, in the Civil War there were so many papers and 
family residences destroyed, and county residences and county records 
and State records, that we are having great difficulty in obtaining that 
information which sixty years ago was so prevalent throughout that 
whole section ; but I believe the results will be accomplished in the 
future. 

At Yorktown, old York Hall has been bought by Mr. Blow, whose 
ancestral home is adjoining it. He has fixed it up as a residence in the 
old Colonial style, and it is one of the most fascinating places that I 
have ever seen. He has in it paintings of great value. Nothing is 
overdone. There is no museum about it ; it is his private residence. 
He received me most hospitably and showed me the cannon balls that 
were fired in there by the Americans during the siege of Yorktown. 
There are two of them imbedded in the exterior walls of the house, 
and one which passed through a window and is imbedded in the in- 
terior walls. Old Nelson himself offered a reward for battering down 
his own homestead, which was the headquarters of Cornwallis during 
that battle. 

The grave of Nelson is covered by a granite slab, 3J/2 feet by 7 feet, 
bearing his name and the inscription. That is in the churchyard, not 
far distant. 

I told you the trip I made was one for rest, and I enjoyed it, every 
bit of it, and I was accused of enjoying work more than play. Well, 
I believe that the accusation is correct. I neither deny it nor do I 
defy the accuser. 

The graves of the two Lees I did not attempt to locate on this trip ; 
it will require another. Nor did I go to Monticello, to visit the grave 
of the great Thomas Jefferson, as that is so well known and so well 
marked that it would not be necessary to go there in order to locate it. 

One of my most intimate friends, of South Carolina, is a descendant 
of two of the Signers. He was one of my predecessors as President of 
the Kentucky Society, Mr. Arthur M. Rutledge, and through him I hope 
to obtain access to the Rutledge and Middleton papers for study, and at 
a future date I will endeavor to visit the graves of the Signers from 
North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, as well as from Maryland. 

But for the present you will have to accept this verbal report. I had 
no time and no opportunity to give you a written one, but I have from 
Mrs. Clark the statement that Mr. Clark during his lifetime took a 
tremendous interest in it. He has a vast volume of papers, copies of 
wills and other documents bearing on the Signers, a number of which as 
yet I have never had the opportunity of going over, and I hope that 
my successor, with what assistance I may be able to give to him, will 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 115 

be able to bring out the history of these Signers in a way that will 
make it as charming and interesting to us as have been those prepared 
by our other State Societies. I thank you for your attention. (Ap- 
plause.) 

The Chair: That report has a personal charm and the copy taken 
down by the stenographer will be furnished the Committee on Official 
Reports. You have all expressed your own thanks of the Congress to 
the chairman of that committee. 

The Chair: I will ask the Secretary to give a notice now, and at the 
same time the Secretary of the Maryland Society will make distribu- 
tion of some documents that will bear upon a future report from one 
of the special committees. 

The Secretary General: Compatriots, there is a limited number of 
rosettes and also service bars in the possession of the Secretary Gen- 
eral, and if any member of the Society desires either he can consult the 
Secretary during one of the recesses and he will be glad to furnish 
them. At the last Congress emphasis was placed on the request to wear 
your rosette, show your colors as a member of the National Society 
and the State Society to which you belong, and that rosette is distinct- 
ive, and we will endeavor to supply those who haven't them. 

The Chair: The distribution is going on so very quietly that I am 
going to take the opportunity of calling upon the chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Patriotic Education to also report for the Special Committee 
of the Executive Board on the American's Creed. Will Judge Reif- 
snider kindly come forward at this time. (Applause.) 

Judge Reifsnider presented the following report, and in connection 
therewith made the following statement at the conclusion of the report : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON PATRIOTIC EDUCATION. 

Mr. President General and Compatriots: 

When we look at the list of members of the Committee on Patriotic 
Education, of which I have the honor to be the chairman, and see how 
widely separated in place of residence they are, it is hardly necessary 
for me to say that no meeting of the committee has been or attempted 
to be held. 

However, desiring to offer something deemed worth while in the dis- 
charge of our duty and having in mind that some of the objects and 
purposes of this Society are to inspire not only the descendants of those 
men who by their services and sacrifices during the War of the Amer- 
ican Revolution achieved the independence of the American people, but 
the community at large, with a more profound reverence for the prin- 
ciples of the Government founded by our forefathers; to foster true 
patriotism; to maintain and extend the institutions of American free- 
dom, and to carry out the purposes expressed in the preamble of the 
Constitution of our country and the injunctions of Washington in his 
farewell address to the American people, the idea occurred to the chair- 
man and was concurred in by at least a majority of the committee — i. e., 
unanimously by all from whom he has heard— that we recommend the 
promulgation of the American's Creed and the lessons to be learned from 
this brief epitome of true Americanism, based upon the political prin- 



Il6 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

ciples which have made this country great, in the public, parochial, and 
private schools throughout the country, to the favorable consideration 
and prompt action, we hope, of every State Society of the Sons of the 
American Revolution as a work than which none seems more impor- 
tant, and in thorough accord with the objects and purposes of this 
Society which we have just quoted. 

Especially important does it seem to us in times like the present, 
fraught with so many dangers to our Government from within, equal if 
not greater than those with which we were confronted from without in 
the momentous period through which we have so recently successfully 
passed, not only as a means of imbuing our own members with a more 
profound reverence for those principles of freedom, equality, justice, 
and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and 
fortunes, but the community at large, thereby tending to perpetuate for 
all time, please God, that which has been won, maintained, and ex- 
tended at such tremendous cost of blood and treasure. 

The history of the American's Creed is fairly well known to the 
members present, but a brief resume will not be out of place at this 
time. As most of you know, the Creed idea originated with Henry 
Sterling Chapin, of New York, who was managing editor of Educa- 
tional Foundations and who is himself of Revolutionary stock of New 
England. 

When the contest for the writing of the American's Creed was an- 
nounced, the active manager of the contest was Compatriot Matthew 
Page Andrews, supported by a representative group of literary critics 
and editors throughout the country. 

The prize or Creed award was offered by Compatriot James H. Pres- 
ton, then mayor of the city of Baltimore, who offered it on behalf of 
Baltimore as the birthplace of "The Star-spangled Banner." 

No proceeding ever undertaken in America received such wide and 
favorable publicity, both in regard to the progress of the contest and 
the announcement of the Creed when chosen ; but it must give all loyal 
Sons of the American Revolution genuine and lasting pleasure to know 
that William Tyler Page, the author of the successful Creed, is not 
only of Revolutionary stock and a descendant of one of the Signers of 
the Declaration of Independence, but that he is also one of us — a mem- 
ber of the Maryland Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. 

From this it is seen that the Creed is almost exclusively a product of 
our great Society, not by any prearranged program, but by a most re- 
markable connection of circumstances most creditable to the faith of 
those who are descended from the founders of this Republic. 

It will be seen by our National Year Book for 1918, pages 99 to 103, 
that the American's Creed was endorsed at our National Congress at 
Rochester. At the time the Secretary General was instructed to convey 
to each of the Secretaries of each of the State Societies a copy of the 
resolution, with instructions to read the same at the next general meet- 
ing of their respective State Societies. Apparently this was not fully 
carried out, due, no doubt, to the illness and death of our lamented 
Secretary General. At least one State Society of the Sons of the 
American Revolution, that of Maryland, has outlined a course of action 
and the results are here noted to illustrate, by just this beginning, the 
apparently unlimited possibilities in the use of the American's Creed, 
and a plan which the committee recommends and urges every State 
Society to adopt : 

1. The Society itself has made the recitation of the Creed a part of 
its opening ceremonies. 

2. It induced the Maryland State Board of Education to adopt a 
resolution in February last making the Creed part of the curriculum of 
the public schools throughout the State and urging the local boards of 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 11/ 

education to purchase enough copies to furnish each pupil with a copy. 

3. It presented framed copies to the public high schools of the State 
(about one hundred) in the name of the Maryland Society of the Sons 
of the American Revolution, on Maryland Day, being the 25th of March 
last. These were presented with appropriate ceremonies and in many 
instances through the medium of a member of the Maryland Society. 

4. It procured three thousand unframed copies to be presented to the 
local boards of education in the twenty-three counties of the State and 
Baltimore City, with the understanding that they will be framed by the 
expenditure of public moneys, the pupils in the respective schools, patri- 
otic citizens, or other means and hung in the schools. A number of 
local boards in the counties and Baltimore City have already been pre- 
sented these copies. 

5. The local boards of education of the counties particularly were 
urged to procure a sufficient number of an authorized educational and 
illustrated edition of the American's Creed for at least the eighth grade 
of the grammar schools. Some responses were made even this year- 
one county, Allegany, procuring 13,000 copies of this artistic edition of 
the Creed for distribution among the pupils — and it is particularly to 
be noted that this county is a mining county, with many foreign-born 
inhabitants. 

6. Plans have also been made for co-operation with the parochial 
school authorities of the Catholic Church for the use of the Creed in 
these schools and for presentation of framed copies to those of high- 
school grade and unframed ones to all of the others. 

Finally, Compatriot Matthew Page Andrews, chairman of the Na- 
tional Publicity Committee of the American's Creed, after answering 
thousands of letters of inquiry from every part of the Union, prepared 
a little pocket volume entitled "The American's Creed and Its Mean- 
ing," for Americanization purposes and for use in the schools. This 
little volume contains the complete story of the Creed and the doctrinal 
authorities upon which it is based and the historical or political expla- 
nations of its various phrases. The volume is also illustrated by pic- 
tures of Washington, Hancock, Jefferson, Madison, Lincoln, Webster, 
the United States Capitol, the Great Seal of the United States, the 
scene at announcement of the Creed in the National Congress, etc. 
The committee believes that the adoption and use of this book by the 
school authorities would make the teaching of the Creed more effective 
in accomplishing the desired results. Baltimore City has already done 
so. Of it our distinguished President General has written to Com- 
patriot Andrews as follows : 

"There has been no finer expression of the sentiments that should 
actuate the true American than those expressed in The American's 
Creed, compiled by William Tyler Page. You have done well to write 
a book on 'The American's Creed and Its Meaning,' and I trust this 
book will find its way into every educational institution of the land. It 
ought to be a text book in every school, for it breathes on every page 
not only the spirit of patriotism, but the spirit of 1776, that established 
the independence of the United States of America. 

"We need have no fear of a lack of national spirit in our land if our 
citizens adhere to the principles of this Creed. There is no nobler work 
that can be done for the youth of our land than to have them memorize 
the American's Creed and become familiar with the authors of the 
various phrases embodied in that Creed, and to learn of their character 
and their service to our Nation." 

And, again, to the publishers, Messrs. Doubleday, Page & Company, 
under date of April 3 : 

"Yesterday I received a most courteous letter from you announcing 
that you were sending under separate cover, a book entitled 'The Amer- 



Il8 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

ican's Creed and Its Meaning,' by my friend, Mr. Matthew Page An- 
drews, chairman. 

"The book arrived this morning and I am deeply grateful to you for 
your courtesy. I assure you that this publication ought to be used as a 
text book in the grammar schools of the United States, and it should 
be the duty of all patriotic societies of America to advocate the use of 
the book in such institutions, and particularly would it be advisable for 
municipalities to present a copy of the book at the time that final papers 
are given to aliens as naturalized citizens." 

The Committee of the Maryland Society, of which I also have the 
honor of being chairman, has been co-operating with the National Creed 
Committee, composed of Matthew Page Andrews, chairman, 849 Park 
Avenue, Baltimore, Md. ; Porter Emerson Browne, Henry Sterling 
Chapin, W. B. Chapman, Irvin S. Cobb, Hamlin Garland, Ellen Glas- 
gow, Hermann Hagedorn, Julian Street, Booth Tarkington, Charles 
Hanson Towne, and Richard Gwinn, treasurer, together with the ad- 
visory council, representing men prominent in both public and private 
life. It has consequently avoided making the mistake made by this 
committee in the beginning in furthering the promulgation and teach- 
ing of the Creed printed on cheap and unattractive folders. Hence, in 
Maryland it recommended the authorized editions of the Creed only, 
which are not only artistic, but at the same time give something of the 
history of the Creed, except in the case of large posters for display in 
school-rooms or offices, the idea being that, attractive and worth pre- 
serving, they will be carried into the homes by the pupils and thou- 
sands — yes, millions — outside the schools reached in this way. 

It may be readily recognized that a knowledge and appreciation of 
The American's Creed represents in itself a certificate of good citizen- 
ship. Its use throughout the country may carry on to a successful 
conclusion ideals of accomplishment that might well have been deemed 
impossible prior to the creation of this wonderfully brief summary of 
American political faith. 

It so happens that the chairman of the Committee on Patriotic Edu- 
cation was also appointed by the Executive Committee at its meeting in 
Newark on January 31 last, together with Compatriot David L. Pierson 
and the Secretary General, as a Special Committee to Exploit the 
American's Creed, and this committee now desires to concur in the 
recommendations of the aforegoing report. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Jno. Milton Reifsnider, 

Chairman. 

With your permission I desire at this time, on behalf of the Mary- 
land Society, to present to the Detroit Chapter of the Sons of the 
American Revolution a framed copy of this American Creed, of which 
I have just spoken, and I also desire to announce, on behalf of the 
Maryland Society, that we have here, I think, a sufficient number of 
unframed copies which we desire to present, with the compliments of 
this Society, to the representatives of the State Societies represented 
at this Congress. We also present, in the name of the Maryland 
Society, the copies of the Creed which have just been handed you, to- 
gether with a printed copy of the report of the committee. (Ap- 
plause.) 

The Chair: Dr. Knight would like to receive that from your hands. 

Judge ReifsnidEr: Coming from such a proud State in the great 
galaxy of the States composing this Union of ours, it is with some 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 119 

hesitation, after hearing how ancient Detroit is, that I undertake to 
make this presentation. It is with a great deal of pleasure on the 
part of the Maryland Society that we present this, hoping you will 
accept it, and at the same time, for further information, we desire 
to present a copy of the book of one of our members giving informa- 
tion on the American Creed. 

Compatriot Knight : In accepting this for the Detroit Chapter, I wish 
to say that, although this city of Detroit may be quite ancient among 
the cities of the West, the Detroit Chapter is a very young Chapter; 
so we can readily accept something from an older chapter and an 
older State than the State of Michigan. I would say, in accepting this, 
that the Americanization idea is not a strange one to us. I think the 
Detroit Chapter and possibly the Michigan Society, before the Detroit 
Chapter was organized, was early in the field in Americanizing our 
people here. 

You know, Detroit is a large manufacturing city, and consequently 
has drawn here men from all over the world. The national types 
represented here, I imagine, are as varied as in any city of the country. 
We have them of all kinds, all religions, and all shades; but they work 
together here, in one harmonious body. 

The Detroit Chapter and, as I said, the Michigan Society took this 
matter up early, and from our beginning it was transferred to larger 
agencies. The Board of Commerce here in Detroit has undertaken 
that work very extensively, and not only the Board of Commerce, but 
the various manufacturers have done a great deal in that line. They 
have educated their people ; they have taught the American language ; 
they have taught them the American spirit. We have had the social 
service among all our large manufacturers. They have provided 
various means for the entertainment and for the education of their 
workmen. 

As you go about the city, if you do, you will see many evidences of 
it, one of which I will call your attention to : As you pass along the 
boulevard tomorrow on your ride, you will see one large sign in which 
the company says to the people that work for them, "One country, one 
flag, one language," and that is what we are endeavoring to teach here 
in our Americanization. Proof that we are a harmonious people, proof 
that there are many Americans here who have come to us from other 
lands, exists in the gold stars that you will see spread up and down 
the streets. If you look at those names there, you will find that not 
one out of six — perhaps even a smaller percentage than that — not one 
out of ten or twelve — is a familiar American name. They are the 
names that carry you to Italy, to Poland, to Russia, to Germany, and 
other places so strange to us who have not traveled. They are names 
of those that were not born in this country, although their holders 
may have been born in this country, but they have become American 
and they have proved that they are Americans by going across the 
water and laying down their lives for the defense of our country and 
their country. (Applause.) 



120 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

President Frank Drew Hall, of the North Dakota Society: I wish 
to say for your information, in regard to this Creed, that I come from 
the State of the Non-Partisan League. A great many of them really 
ought to be denationalized, but we have a heavy percentage of foreign 
population, and in the naturalization process our district judges are 
accustomed to have addresses by prominent, well-known citizens on the 
flag and upon the nature of the act in which they are about to partici- 
pate in becoming naturalized citizens of our country. That has become 
quite a custom in the last two or three years, and the point of informa- 
tion I wish to ask for is whether this organization could in some way 
provide that one of these small copies of the Creed could be furnished 
to these courts that are about to naturalize these foreign-born citizens, 
that they might put one of these into the hands of every man as he is 
naturalized? That is just a suggestion or a question. I do not know 
whether they are for distribution in any way like that, but it strikes 
me that it would be one of the finest things we could do for our new 
citizens. 

The Chair : You are the President of your State Society. 

President of the North Dakota Society: Yes, sir. 

The Chair : You will kindly get into communication with the chair- 
man of this committee and he will tell you how the various State 
Societies, are taking it up with these various organizations throughout 
their individual States. 

President of the North Dakota Society: Thank you. 

Compatriot Knight : Before I leave the stand, I would like to say 
a word about the reception tonight. There will be automobiles at the 
Bagley Avenue entrance of the hotel, so that those who wish to go 
that way can do so ; and also on Elizabeth street, Elizabeth street being 
one block north of the Methodist Church, over on the corner, there 
will be a street car on a siding, and any who wish to go that way may 
do so. That car will be there until half-past seven. The car will take 
you directly to Colonel Alger's house. Those who miss that car and 
the automobiles can go at any time in the street cars, which go di- 
rectly to Colonel Alger's house. Those who do not take the auto- 
mobiles can go by the special car. Those who are too late for the 
special car, which leaves at half-past seven, can take any car which 
goes to Grosse Pointe. The Chamber of Commerce in Detroit has a 
fine building and has sent a communication saying that it will be glad 
to see any of the members here. It is very unusual in its methods of 
distributing information, furnishing manufacturers and others in- 
terested in that line with information about anything in the city or 
country, and will be glad to have a visit from any one here. 

The Chair : The question before the house is the report of the Com- 
mittee on Patriotic Education. That is also one for which you have 
expressed your thanks, and it will be referred to the Committee on 
Official Reports. I am sorry that time does not permit of our ex- 
pressing our approval from the floor of the various reports that have 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 121 

been made today. They have all been magnificent. Before we pro- 
ceed with the next report I desire to make an announcement, which is 
that the invitation extended from the Chamber of Commerce has been 
referred officially to the Committee on Recommendations, and indi- 
vidually you accept the invitation. 

Compatriot Clark (Va.) : At our Congress at Rochester last year 
Mr. Andrews, of Baltimore, read this Creed and also a paper telling 
the source from which these expressions were taken. I think I called 
his attention to the fact that I did not think he gave the proper credit 
for the expression used, "government of the people, by the people, for 
the people" ; so I wrote him a letter, as he had asked me to do. I 
wrote this letter : 

420 Mutual Building, May 28, 1918. 
Mr. Matthew Page Andrews, 

849 Park Avenue, Baltimore, Md. 
My Dear Mr. Andrews: Referring to our conversation in Rochester 
as to the origin of the words in the "American Creed," "A government 
of the people, by the people, and for the people" — 

(1) In the opinion of Chief Justice Marshall in the case of McCul- 
lock vs. The State of Maryland, delivered in February term of U. S. 
Supreme Court, 1819, the sentiment of these words runs through the 
120 pages of this far-reaching opinion. (See Wheaton's Reports, Vol. 4, 
pages 315-435- edition of 1883.) 

On page 404 are these words : 

"The government of the Union, then, is emphatically and truly a 
government of the people. In form and in substance it emanates from 
them. Its powers are granted by them and are to be exercised directly 
on them and for their benefit." 

I am indebted to Hon. Lunsford L. Lewis for this reference. Judge 
Lewis is a retired Associate Judge and President of the Virginia Su- 
preme Court of Appeals and was a United States district attorney for 
this district. He is an ex-President and Historian of the Virginia 
Society, Sons of the American Revolution. 

(2) Daniel Webster, in a speech in the United States Senate, January 
26, 1830, said : 

"The people's government, made for the people, made by the people, 
and answerable to the people." (Bartlett's Quotations, p. 532.) 

(3) Theodore Parker, in a speech delivered in Boston, May 29, 
1850, said : 

"This is a government of all the people, by all the people, for all 
the people." (Bartlett, p. 639.) 

(4) President Abraham Lincoln, in his speech at Gettysburg, Novem- 
ber 19, 1863, said : „ 

"A government of the people, for the people, and by the people. 
(Bartlett, p. 622.) . 

In the article accompanying the Creed, it is stated that these words 
are from the preamble to the Constitution. I am unable to find such 
in either the Constitution or the brief preamble. I have examined 
several publications of that document. . 

Please kindly understand that I have not brought up this matter in 
any spirit of criticism or unfriendliness— not at all— but only to assist 
in locating the real origin of the words and giving credit where it 
belongs.

Trusting this may aid you in further search for the truth, and hoping 
to have the pleasure of meeting you again, I am, 
Yours truly, 

Arthur D. Clark, 
President Virginia Society, S. A. R. 

In subsequent publications the same words are contained, that it is 
from the Constitution, which I am utterly unable to find. John Mar- 
shall is really the author of the words. 

The Chair : We have a report from the Committee on Americani- 
zation, Mr. Chancellor Jenks. (Great applause.) 

Compatriot Chancellor Jenks presented the report as follows : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON AMERICANIZATION AND 

ALIENS. 

Detroit, Mich., May 19, 1919. 

To the Thirtieth Annual Congress of the National Society, Sons of the 
American Revolution: 

This committee came into existence ten years ago, in response to a 
patriotic ambition to hasten the amalgamation of the foreign-born into 
the ranks of desirable citizens. Our Society was the first to define and 
enter this field of labor. The word "Americanization" then received a 
somewhat restricted interpretation. It was confined to instructing the 
new or prospective citizen of foreign birth in the practical and material 
advantages of the American form of government and its protecting 
power. Rapidly its scope has broadened, until it now embraces every 
effort made to build up, strengthen, and fortify the American Govern- 
ment through implanting and fostering a higher ideality in the indi- 
vidual citizen, whatever his birth. As a consequence the activities of 
this committee are covering a larger field. Its members are gladly 
reaching out welcome hands of co-operation with other agencies of 
patriotic uplift, in order that the results may be multiplied and made 
more universal. We have found 'a great truth, which may be ex- 
pressed in a biblical paraphrase: "America, if it be lifted up, will draw 
all men unto it." Wherever we find America being so lifted up, there 
this committee finds its congenial work. Whoever seeks this aggran- 
dizement of our country's institutions and ideals we join hands with in 
a common cause. Yet we do not forget that our Society first announced 
and entered upon this important work, nor do we suffer the laurels 
which rightly belong to the Sons of the American Revolution to be 
wrested from our brow. 

Every member of this committee has been engaged during the last 
year in absorbing war work. Some have been so fortunate as to don 
the uniform of the American soldier or sailor ; others remained in the 
files of the plain-clothes men who served behind the firing line. All 
were essential parts of a great Americanization machine, which needed 
every part to be effective. From every portion of the United States 
come reports of the activity of members of this committee in the 
great Americanization movement. It is interesting to note the char- 
acteristic style of these several chronicles. Those of us who know the 
writers are enabled to visualize them through their reports. 

Alfred Coit, of New London, Conn., modestly regrets his inability 
to do much in the Americanization way because of his duties as Gov- 
ernment appeal agent, as director of forty "4-minute" men, and as 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 123 

major in the Liberty Loan campaigns. Can better Americanization 
work be imagined? It is purely inspirational. The scholarly Judge 
Harvey F. Remington, of Rochester, multiplied his strength by co- 
operation with the Americanization Committee of the Rochester Cham- 
ber of Commerce. On Washington's birthday his committee, in the 
presence of 4,000 applauding Americans, conferred citizenship certifi- 
cates upon more than a hundred students of American institutions. 
They brought to Rochester James W. Gerard and Job B. Hedges, to 
picture America's ideals and ambitions to twenty thousand people. 
They organized and carried out flag-day celebrations in many industrial 
plants, thronged with prospective voters, and infused enthusiasm and 
vim into societies and social and industrial groups without number. 

Dr. Samuel Judd Holmes, a vice-chairman of this committee, carried 
his untiring zeal and loyalty into the Y. M. C. A. classes of Seattle, 
and in his own striking personality furnished proof of the inspirational 
value of a line of loyal American forebears. 

Another distant committeeman, Dr. Rawlins Cadwallader, of San 
Francisco, unspoiled by his new entitlements of captain of Medical 
Corps and assistant commanding officer, was engaged in the work of 
completing the naturalization of alien soldiers. At Pittsburgh, Thomas 
Stephen Brown found time, despite the pressure of his professional 
duties, to impress the Americanism of our Society upon half a score 
of important committees whose functions were to hold up the hands 
of the Nation and to guard it from disloyalty and treason — in a word, 
to insure the fruits of solid Americanism. 

Compatriot J. H. Weston, of Logtown, Miss., in a district untouched 
by any foreign strain or suspicion of disloyalty, found in the prestige 
of membership on this committee the opportunity to awaken into definite 
expression the dormant patriotic spirit of his community. 

From Montclair, N. J., W. J. Lincoln Adams writes that his Ameri- 
canization activities were nil because he was in active military service! 
Active military service is practical Americanization. Our soldiers and 
sailors have been engaged in Americanizing the world. How many 
thousands of Germans were persuaded to throw up. their hands and 
voice their complete conversion in the cry, "Kamerad." 

Edwin S. Crandon, of Cambridge, sees the word of this committee 
looming into greater importance as peace tries to hover over a nation 
aroused to the highest degree of pugnacity. Concerted effort of all 
agencies which seek to touch the hearts and minds and consciences of 
men with the appeal of American ideality is needed to offset in the 
mill centers of Massachusetts the socialistic, anarchistic propaganda 
which is so rife. But first the alien must learn English, so that the 
requisite contact may be made. 

Frank B. Steele, of Buffalo, carried his Americanism into his work 
as the executive secretary of the Home Defense Committee of Erie 
Count}'. He took the census of the aliens and illiterate. A Subcom- 
mittee on Americanization and Naturalization operated in the public 
schools and with the U. S. Bureau of Naturalization; classes were 
formed for the study of our institutions and laws, and the certificates 
presented to the students were accepted by the naturalization officer 
without further examination. His committee conducted a great cele- 
bration on July 4th in connection with the conferring of these certifi- 
cates. As in many other districts, employers of labor were induced to 
advance men as a reward for learning English. Prominent in this 
activity is Mr. George W. Whitehead, assistant superintendent of the 
Lackawanna Steel Co., a member of the Sons of the American Revo- 
lution. 

Prof. Vernon P. Squires, of the University of North Dakota, has 



124 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

made many addresses at Grand Forks and elsewhere on American 
ideals and America's part in the war. 

In Milwaukee, Walter H. Wright plainly rose to the urgent necessity 
of the perilous situation and, as member of the Wisconsin Defense 
League, the Wisconsin Loyalty Legion, the County Council of Defense, 
the Patriotic Speakers' Bureau, the Draft Board, the "4-minute" men, 
and many other emergency groups, has been furthering the objects of 
our committee. 

Many and momentous have been the problems which have arisen out 
of Wisconsin's complex citizenry. The State Society of the S. A. R. 
has maintained an alertness which has contributed to the solution of 
them all. It spoke a ringing note of fealty when our Nation entered 
the war. It circularized the schools and colleges of the State in ad- 
vocacy of the observation of Constitution Day. It awarded medals to 
high-school students for the best essays on these subjects: "America, 
the Melting Pot of the World," and "The Constitution of the United 
States." It inaugurated a successful protest against the presentation 
of plays in German, and only last week was an active promoter of a 
tableau representing Trumbull's famous painting, "The Signing of the 
Declaration of Independence." All this is Americanization work of the 
highest type. 

Last, but by no means least, I would mention the work of our much- 
loved and respected compatriot, Commander John H. Moore, of Wash- 
ington, D. C, who, notwithstanding the increased responsibility and 
labors incident to higher rank and honors, has been distributing broad- 
cast the three pamphlets issued by our Society, entitled "Information 
for Immigrants," "Naturalization," and "The Constitution of the United 
States," Requests for these have come from public and technical 
schools, State Societies and Chapters, Y. M. C. A.'s, Americanization 
committees in different cities, the Bureau of Naturalization, and the 
Bureau of Education of the Department of the Interior, etc. 

On account of the action of our Executive Committee in discontinu- 
ing the publication of these leaflets, it was decided that the remaining 
copies should be divided between the Bureaus of Education and of 
Naturalization. During the past eleven years this committee has sent 
out hundreds of thousands of our leaflets to all parts of the country, 
and it is believed that they have had stimulating effect upon the 
Americanization movement. 

If, as I have rehearsed the labors of the members of this committee, 
you have said to yourselves, "Why, we've all been doing these things 
ourselves," I can reply, "So much the better for our land and for our 
Society." The Sons of the American Revolution, when they rise to 
their highest worth, are only a Committee of the Whole on Americani- 
zation and Aliens. As American citizens, as members of this Society, 
we all have the same work to perform, the same road to traverse. We 
must study American ideals until we understand, love, appropriate, and 
live them. Then will we be fitted to impart them to others, and to 
make our own lives an object-lesson of their worth. As lovers of our 
country, let us first to our own selves be true ; then will it follow, as 
night the day, that we cannot be false to any man. 

Chancellor L. Jenks, 

Chairman. 

The Chair: We owe thanks to Chancellor Jenks for his magnificent 
report, which is referred to the Committee on Official Reports. We will 
now have the report of the War Service Committee — President Carl M. 
Vail, of the New Jersey Society, chairman. 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 125 

Compatriot Vail: Air. President General and Compatriots, the data 
contemplated regarding the war service work of our National Society 
and its members is far too voluminous to read at this time. I have 
the report prepared, a very brief report, to give you a few of the high 
spots. I will say also that as yet I have received returns from scarcely 
half the States, so that I could not in any event make a complete report 
at this time. 

Compatriot Vail then presented the following report : 

REPORT OF THE WAR SERVICE COMMITTEE OF THE 

NATIONAL SOCIETY OF THE SONS OF 

THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

The War Service Committee of the National Society of the Sons 
of the American Revolution consists of the Presidents of all the State 
Societies. After due consideration it was decided that better results 
would be obtained by each State Society caring for its own war service 
work than by handling it all through one central committee. The 
President of each State Society, therefore, became practically a sub- 
committee chairman for his State. Due to some kind of war service 
being still in progress as well as to other causes, rather less than half 
of the States have so far reported to the national committee. There- 
fore, at this time, only a partial report is submitted. The period 
covered is from the entrance of America in the World War, on April 
6, 1017, to date. 

The war service activities of the Society and its members have been 
so varied and extensive that it is not possible to tabulate them under 
a limited number of specific heads. The detail work of each State is 
separately reported as exhibits attached hereto. 

The following illustrations are given, not as a complete list of im- 
portant services rendered, but to indicate the extent and variety of the 
work done by our Society and its members : 

The Massachusetts Society as an organization collected and dis- 
tributed goods to soldiers passing through Boston to the value of 
$120,000. In addition to their many other activities, three ambulances 
were sent abroad by the Empire State Society, one by the Illinois 
Society, and one by the New Jersey Society. The members of the 
Empire State Society subscribed to over $153,000,000 worth of bonds 
of the first four Liberty Loans. The returns for the Fifth Liberty 
Loan are not in, but will probably bring their record to about $200,- 
000,000. What the total of loan subscriptions by all the members of 
the National Society is cannot as yet be said, but it will run into many 
hundreds of millions of dollars. 

Of the 24S members of the Utah Society, 55 enlisted in the Army 
and Navy. 

About 25 per cent of the membership of the Wisconsin Society 
served in the Army and Navy. 

Many State Societies presented service bars to their members who 
enlisted and will present bronze medals to them. 

Individual services of members cover work on exemption boards, 
local advisory boards, Liberty Loan committees, in Thrift Stamp drives, 
Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., in Department of State, in Department of 
Justice, American Protective League, Armenian Relief, as four-minute 
speakers, getting up public meetings, Home Guard, fatherless children 
of France, as food administrators, as coal administrators, and in fact 



126 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

in practically every form of war service. In a large number of in- 
stances, the chairman of not only local but of county and State com- 
mittees were members of our Society. 

Lieut.-Col. C. Seymour Bullock, of Connecticut, organized the Ameri- 
can Legion of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces. 

Compatriot Noyes, a former President of the Illinois Society, gave 
property to the University of Chicago to the amount of $3,500,000, as 
a perpetual educational fund for American soldiers and sailors who 
served in the great war for liberty. 

Important and splendid services were rendered by every State So- 
ciety, and the details of such service will be found in the reports at- 
tached, or to be attached, hereto. 

Exact figures as to the number of our members who were enlisted 
in the Army and Navy are not as yet available, but in excess of 12 per 
cent of the total membership of the Society, or, say, about eighteen 
hundred, so served. They were in all branches of the Army and Navy 
and of all ranks up to and including major general and rear admiral. 
The record of those who gave their lives for their country is as yet 
by no means complete, but the following have so far been reported : 

Capt. Merritt U. Lamb, of Michigan. 

Lieut. Edward H. Locke, of Michigan. 

Lieut. Clarence F. Conner, of Michigan. 

Lieut. Harry Hastings Melick, of Nebraska. 

Lieut. Walter Stillman, of Nebraska. 

Lieut. Harrison Cummins McHenry, of Iowa. 

Lieut. Burr Budd Boies, of Iowa. 

Lieut. Charles Cedric Seevers, of Iowa. 

Brig. Gen. Lyman W. V. Kennon, of District of Columbia. 

Lieut. Louis Hamilton Bayly, of District of Columbia. 

Capt. Waterbury, of Illinois. 

Lieut. George R. Sutherland, of Wisconsin. 

Lieut. Macnish, of Wisconsin. 

Lieut. Gormley, of Wisconsin. 

Lieut. Richard Earle Beall, of Idaho. 

Lieut. Briggs K. Adams, of New Jersey. 

Lieut. William W. Punchard, Jr., of New Jersey.

Lieut. L. W. Bates, Jr., of New York. 

Lieut. Edward C. Kimble, of New York. 

Lieut. Edgar B. Lowerie, of New York.

incomplete, but advices as to the following have been received : 

Sgt. John Lamb, of Michigan — Distinguished Service Cross. 

Lieut. Robert L. Nourse, Jr., of Idaho — Croix de Guerre.

PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 27 

Your War Service Committee asks that, in addition to submitting 
the present report, it be permitted to turn over to the Secretary Gen- 
eral further data as rapidly as it is collected, until such time as the 
war work record is completed. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Carl M. Vail, 

Chairman. 

The Chair: The partial report of the committee is received with 
thanks and will be referred to the Committee on Official Reports. I 
ask you to remain just for a few minutes longer, that we may com- 
plete the receiving of the reports so as to have the morning free for 
unfinished business and new business. Is there a report from the Flag 
Committee, of which Compatriot William V. Cox is chairman? 

The Secretary General submitted the report of the Flag Committee, 
Mr. Cox, the chairman, being unable to be present. It was as follows : 

REPORT OF THE FLAG COMMITTEE. 

The Flag Committee, National Society, Sons of the American Revo- 
lution, begs to report that American manhood successfully defending 
the Flag of the United States on and beyond the seas has made the flag 
more glorious in the eyes of the world. 

On this side of the Atlantic, the great German invasion in Europe 
has made the flag more precious; Americans everywhere reconsecrating 
themselves to it and the principles for which it stands and for which 
our sons fought and died. 

Never before have there been so many flags triumphantly waving, nor 
so many tributes written in prose and poetry to the glory and honor of 
the flag, at the same time so little said of the needs of a Federal law 
to protect its sanctity as the symbol of the Government of the United 
States. 

As a people we honor the flag, but there are men and women living 
under its protective folds who are not in sympathy with our institu- 
tions and who love another flag that has no place in the Republic 
established by our fathers. Anticipating conflicts, riots, and possibly 
bloodshed with these un-Americans, the Honorable Henry Zenas 
Osborne, of California, introduced a bill on December 3, 1918 (H. R. 
T 3I95» 65th Congress, 3d session), to prohibit the public or private dis- 
play of certain flags and emblems and prescribing for violation thereof. 
This bill, referred to the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of 
Representatives, was not acted on. 

There is room for but one flag in the United States, and that the 
flag of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution— the flag 
that stands for order, justice, and peace. 

In recent years this flag has been torn down and trampled on. It 
has been abused and commercially misused by promoters, fakers, and 
others, who for business purposes have taken advantage of its beauty 
and made it an advertising banner. 

The records show that the Sons of the American Revolution and 
other patriotic societies have petitioned and urged the Congress of the 
United States to enact a law to protect its flag from every kind of 
degredation. All efforts have failed to secure the passage of such 
a bill in both bodies of the same Congress. If individuals and societies 
would agree on a measure and unitedly present it to Congress, as 
recommended in previous reports of this committee, it seems rational 



128 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

to believe that the creators of the flag would protect that which they 
created. Mr. Justice Harlan has said in legal dictum : 

"To every true American the 'flag is the symbol of the Nation's 
power, the Emblem of Freedom, in its truest, best sense. It is not 
extravagant to say that to all lovers of the country it signifies govern- 
ment resting on the consent of the governed; liberty regulated by law; 
the protection of the weak against the strong; security against the 
exercise of arbitrary power, and absolute safety for free institutions 
against foreign aggression." 

Thoughtful Americans believe that a Federal flag law is needed to 
prevent desecration, intentional or otherwise. Experience has shown 
that merely the sense of propriety and knowledge of fitness cannot 
always be relied on, an additional reason why offenders against the 
flag and Federal Government should be restrained by due process of 
law. Absence of well defined legal protection of the flag has caused 
violence and disorder, as witnessed in many of the States of the Union. 
In a large number of cases indiscriminate physical punishment has 
been inflicted on those outraging the flag by infuriated citizens and 
soldiers who had upheld that flag on the battlefields of France. 

The committee believes that the foreign-born enemies of our country 
who dishonor the flag should be deported from our country for our 
country's good. American-born enemies should be imprisoned, and 
thus prevented from spreading treason. 

To force a traitor to kiss the flag as a punishment is a mistake that 
should not be repeated. Unworthies should never be permitted to 
place their lips on the flag that represents American civilization, a flag 
which should be kept clean and free from pollution. If such willful 
abuses of the flag are not punished by law, would it not be a more 
fitting punishment to force foul-mouthed desecrators to kiss the shadow 
of the flag in the dust of the street? 

The flag is more frequently desecrated unintentionally, thoughtlessly, 
and through ignorance than maliciously, which shows the need of 
further inspiration as to what the flag stands for, its proper use and 
abuse. Mrs. Isabell Worrell Ball, the well-known patriotic writer, 
tells the following, illustrating ignorance and lack of propriety by well- 
meaning persons : '"In a haberdasher shop there posed a clay figure, 
dressed presumably as a gentleman. On the corner of his turned-down 
collar two flags were woven; his necktie had two flags on it, worn up- 
side down (a signal of distress in the language of the flag) ; a bow- 
knot flag, upside down, ornamented the lapel of his coat. A flag hand- 
kerchief, also upside down, was in his breast pocket. Conspicuous blue 
socks with two white stripes, between which two flags were woven, 
covered the feet. Two young ladies appeared. Looking at the 
grotesque figure, one, who also wore a flag hat and flag stockings, ex- 
claimed, 'Oh, isn't it just too sweet the way that figure has the flags 
arranged. I am just crazy about the flag.' " The bad taste here dis- 
played confirms the diagnosis. Fortunately cases like this grow fewer 
each year as the result of the campaign of education carried on by 
teachers, patriotic instructors, organized and unorganized, and by the 
various patriotic societies. 

President Wilson in his Flag Day Proclamation said, "Let us on that 
day (June 14) rededicate ourselves to the Nation * * * for an 
America which no man can corrupt, no influence draw away from 
its ideals, no force divide against itself — a Nation signally distinguished 
among all the nations of mankind for its clear individual conception 
alike of its duties and its privileges, its obligations, and its rights." 

Among patriotic instructors may be mentioned Capt. E. R. Lewis, of 
Chicago, President of the American Flag Day Association, who has a 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 29 

large collection of examples of flag desecrations, which he uses with 
telling results when addressing meetings in American cities on the proper 
use of the flag. Captain Lewis wrote President Wilson asking him to 
have war-workers keep the flag at the front, protesting against it being 
in the background of uncensored war posters. 

The National Association of Advertising Specialty Manufacturers of 
Chicago is to be highly commended for the advanced position taken 
in protecting the flag in advertising and for its publication and dis- 
tribution of flag laws of the States. 

The District of Columbia Society of the Sons of the American Revo- 
lution recites the American's Creed at all its meetings. At two func- 
tions this year the Creed was recited by its author, William Tyler Page, 
of Maryland, as follows: "I believe in the United States of America 
as a Government of the people, by the people, and for the people; whose 
just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy 
in a Republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect 
Union, one and inseparable, established upon those principles of free- 
dom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots 
sacrificed their lives and fortunes. 

"I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support 
its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag and to defend it 
against all enemies." 

Rules as to the use of the flag, prepared by our associate, General 
James Rush Lincoln, Professor of Military Science and Tactics, Iowa 
State College, have received the approval of the committee and may 
be found in the appendix. 

The form of respect due the National Anthem has also greatly im- 
proved. This is ascribed largely to the training of our sons in the 
cantonments and by patriotic instruction by willing war-workers. The 
regulations of the War Department provide that, "Whenever the Na- 
tional Anthem is played at any place when persons belonging to the 
military service are present, all officers and enlisted men not in forma- 
tion shall stand at attention, facing toward the music (except at retreat, 
when they shall face toward the flag). If in uniform, covered, they 
shall salute at the first note of the anthem, retaining the position of 
salute until the last note of the anthem. If not in uniform, and covered, 
they shall uncover at the first note of the anthem, holding the head- 
dress opposite the left shoulder and so remain until its close, except 
that in inclement weather the head-dress may be held slightly raised. 

"The same rules apply when 'To the Color' or 'To the Standard' is 
sounded as when the National Anthem is played. 

"When played by an Army band, the National Anthem shall be played 
through without repetition of any part not required to be repeated to 
make it complete. 

"The same mark of respect prescribed for observance during the play- 
ing of the National Anthem of the United States shall be shown toward 
the national anthem of any other country when played upon official 
occasions." 

Attention being called to the condition of flags that had become dis- 
colored, weatherbeaten, and torn by long usage, as not properly repre- 
senting the pride of the Nation's Capital, those responsible immediately 
substituted new ones. In this connection, the committee calls atten- 
tion to the action of the National Association of Dyers and Cleaners, 
representing over a thousand plants in various cities, which adopted a 
resolution at its last meeting at Atlantic City, tendering its plants to 
the Government for whatever use the Government might put them, 
and volunteering to clean free of expense every flag in home localities. 
This patriotic offer, novel in character, is highly commended. 



130 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Bills protecting the Flag of the United States will be introduced 
again at the coming session of the Sixty-sixth Congress of the United 
States and with your approval will receive the active support of your 
Flag Committee, emulating the example of General Omar Bundy at 
Chateau-Thiery, when he said, "The American flag has been forced 
to retire. This is unendurable. * * * We are going to counter- 
attack." 

W. V. Cox. 

Chairman. 

APPENDIX. 

The following rules will be complied with in the use of the United 
States Flag: 

When the flag is displayed from a staff the upper halyard will be 
attached to the upper corner of the flag, or upper corner of the union, 
and drawn up tight to the pulley. The lower halyard will be attached 
to the lower corner of the flag and will be allowed to be loose so as 
to not unnecessarily whip out the flag. The flag should be raised in 
the morning and lowered before sundown. When the flag is to be 
displayed at half staff it will first be raised to the top of the staff and 
then lowered to a position not more than one-third the distance from 
the top of the staff. When it is to be lowered from half staff it will 
first be drawn up to its position at the top of the staff and from there 
lowered. Never raise the flag and stop at half staff or lower it direct 
from half staff. On the Fourth of July the flag flies at full staff, and 
at 12 o'clock a salute to the Union is fired when artillery is available. 
A salute to the Union consists of one discharge for each State, at 
present being a salute of forty-eight guns. Memorial Day the flag is 
raised to the top of the staff and dropped to half staff. At 12 o'clock 
the flag is raised to full staff, from which position it is lowered at 
sunset. The flag at half staff is in honor of the dead. At full staff 
it is in honor of the living. When it is changed, on this occasion, from 
half to full staff, if practicable, the Star-spangled Banner should be 
played and followed by other patriotic airs, if desired. 

The flag represents the Nation and should be saluted when carried 
by a color-bearer with a guard of at least two men. When the flag is 
carried without being in charge of a guard it is not a representative 
of the Nation. It requires a guard to give it its full dignity. When 
carried as indicated, when the flag passes, it should be saluted by 
facing toward it, and when in uniform and covered, by coming to the 
position of salute, the hand held at salute until it is passed, when the 
hand is smartly dropped to the side. If passing the flag, the salute is 
rendered as you pass it in the same manner. If in civilian clothes, 
face toward the flag, remove the hat and hold it in front of the left 
shoulder for the time, as indicated in the preceding instructions. If 
uncovered, stand at attention, facing the flag, and salute. If passing 
the flag uncovered, salute with the hand in passing. The flag carried 
on a lance as indicated with a guard is called "colors," and should 
never be witout a guard unless it is placed where it is kept for safe- 
keeping. 

The Flag Used in Decorations. 

The flag, when displayed from a window or a door of a building, 
should have the union on the side opposite the building. When sus- 
pended from a rope in the center of the street, in streets running east 
and west, the union should be to the north ; in streets running north 
and south, the union should be to the east. When used for interior 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 131 

decorating the flag should be displayed on the wall, the union on the 
left. In this position the flag can be draped as desired. If it is desired, 
can be draped with their unions approximately together, the stripes 
being draped to the right and left. The "National Colors" render no 
salute; hence in decorations the flag should never be drooped which 
brings the stripes perpendicular. Flags should never be used as a 
covering for tables or stands or placed in any position that they can 
be soiled by contact. 

Jas. Rush Lincoln. 

The Secretary General : I wish to say, in connection with this re- 
port, that if the program of the National House of Representatives 
was carried out as expected, the Hon. William Tyler Page was elected 
Clerk of the National House of Representatives today, a position in 
the National House of Representatives second only to that of the 
Speakership itself. 

The Chair: The report will take the usual course. We will now 
have the report of the Special Committee on Increased Membership, 
of which Mr. Lewis B. Curtis is chairman. 

Compatriot Curtis : I think my report is unique in one thing — it is 
all on one page. I might state, in connection with the report, that in 
some of the smaller States having a smaller membership the per- 
centages ran very much higher than in States with a large member- 
ship. One State gained over 100 per cent, but it was due to its small 
membership. New Jersey made the banner gains of the larger societies. 

Compatriot Curtis then presented the report as follows: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON INCREASED MEMBERSHIP. 

Immediately on your committee receiving their appointment at the 
close of the last Congress, the undersigned, as chairman, wrote all the 
members of the committee and suggested to them that, on account of 
their being so widely scattered, it would probably be impossible to hold 
regular meetings and direct the work as a body, and suggested that of 
necessity some one member must carry on the work under general 
supervision of the committee. The undersigned was unanimously 
elected to carry on the work and most of the correspondence has been 
done by him. This statement is made without any idea of claiming 
credit but rather to assume responsibility and to show that any defects 
in the carrying out of the purposes for which the committee was ap- 
pointed should not be chargeable to the other members of the com- 
mittee. . , ;.. 

After this preliminary, the writer at once got in correspondence with 
all the Vice-Presidents General, urging them in turn to work on the 
presidents of the various Societies and endeavor to get the member- 
ship committees appointed and a campaign started in each ot the State 
Societies This correspondence has been carried on continuously 
throughout the year, supplemented by personal visits in as many places 
as possible. In many parts of the country the results have been very 
-ratifying, as the following figures will show, but still we feel that our 
efforts would have been crowned with still greater success had we 
have been working in normal times and under ordinary conditions. 
During the past year we have been working in the midst of war excite- 
ments when campaigns for all kinds of things were being carried on, 



I32 SONS OP THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

and we found that so many people were interested in war work and 
societies pertaining to the war that it was difficult to arouse interest 
in our Society. 

The figures of the year are before us, but we will not repeat them 
here, as they probably will appear in the report of the Registrar 
General, excepting to state that, in spite of the above adverse conditions, 
we have added 1,220 members, or an increase of 8 per cent in our total 
membership. In many States the percentage has run much higher than 
this, as in the case of New Jersey, where the percentage of increase 
was approximately 14 per cent. 

We found that this work was much greater than any ordinary busy 
man could do justice to. We found that, to do it right, it was a man's size 
job, which would take the entire time of the very best man who could 
be secured. To do it properly, a man should devote his whole time to 
it and be prepared to devote a large part of his efforts as a field secre- 
tary, working out local problems for the various State Societies, con- 
ducting meetings, campaigns, etc., in the localities where the Societies 
need strengthening. In fact, we believe that several such men could be 
used to advantage. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lewis Beers Curtis, 
Chairman of Committee on Increased Membership. 

The Chair: The report is received with the thanks of the Congress 
and referred to the Committee on Official Reports. Have we a report 
from the Committee on Local Chapters, of which Past President Gen- 
eral Woodworth is chairman? From the Committee on Naval and 
Military Records, of which Compatriot Charles W. Stewart is chair- 
man? From the Committee on National Archives, of which Major 
Frederick C. Bryan is chairman? From the Committee on Colors? 
I presume Col. George V. Lauman in the presentation of the colors 
made the report. We will so accept it. There is no report from the 
Legal Aid Committee, because nothing has been referred to that com- 
mittee during the year. Is there a report on The Washington Guard, 
of which Compatriot Merrill is chairman, or from the Publicity Com- 
mittee, of which Compatriot Pierson is chairman? 

The Secretary General : Mr. Pierson wrote and said that he would 
be unable to be present at this Congress. All of you know him. He 
was for years Historian General of this Society. 

The Secretary read the following letter from Mr. Pierson, chairman 
of the Publicity Committee, as follows : 

REPORT OF PUBLICITY DEPARTMENT. 

Compatriots of the Thirtieth Congress of the Society of the Sons of 
the American Revolution, Greeting: 

It was the intention of this department the moment it was created by 
appointment of the President General, Compatriot Louis Annin Ames, 
to conduct a vigorous campaign in behalf of the society, and to stimu- 
late, where necessary, the compatriots to a keener realization of the 
duty involving upon them as citizens as well as members of our be- 
loved organization. 

With this object in view, we began to prepare the plan for the anni- 



PROCEEDINGS OE DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 33 

versary remembrance of Constitution Day, on September 17. The 
proclamation of the President General calling upon the members to 
celebrate the day was anticipated by a letter sent out by this depart- 
ment on August 15, 1918. This was sent to all the general officers, 
presidents of Societies and Chapters, to a number of governors of 
States, mayors of cities, and also to many newspapers. Through the 
kindly offices of Compatriot Arthur S. Thompson, an article prepared 
by the chairman was sent over the wires to every newspaper patroniz- 
ing the Associated Press for release on the morning of September 16, 
the day preceding the anniversary. 

Gratifying reports were received from many of the Societies and 
individual compatriots of the success attending the celebration, the 
second in the history of the country, and which was inaugurated by 
our Society. 

The epidemic of the fall and early winter, with the many important 
happenings in the country and the world, forbade any active work 
after that date till the thirtieth anniversary of our Society, on April 30. 

On April 30 a circular letter was sent to the presidents of Societies 
and Chapters, and to others, by direction of our President General, call- 
ing attention to the forthcoming anniversary of our National Charter 
and Guide, and requesting immediate action by the societies for pro- 
moting the movement in their respective communities and localities for 
its nation-wide observance. The attention of the compatriots was also 
called to the importance of this Congress. 

Please let me ask each and every member of this Congress to use 
every honorable means at his command to bring about an enthusiastic 
and inspirational celebration of this most notable day in our national 
life. Individual participation in the movement is absolutely necessary 
if we are to make it more impressive than the two previous ones. Let 
us send up our prayer of thanksgiving to Almighty God that He has 
safeguarded us on our journey of nearly a century and a third; let us 
proclaim to the world our belief in the true American spirit of loyalty 
to the principles of the Founders as enunciated in the two great docu- 
ments; let us reaffirm our allegiance to the flag and to the glorious 
institutions it represents ; let us, through the mediums of public meet- 
ings and individual missionary work, impress upon the new-comer and 
the indifferent citizen the mighty responsibility devolving upon all who 
claim protection of the best and most enlightened government in the 
world. 

Respectfully submitted, 

David L. Pierson, 

Chairman. 

The Chair: The report is received with the thanks of the Congress 
and will take the usual course. That concludes all the reports of the 
officers and committees. There is but one item of unfinished business 
I know of. If it is your pleasure, we can transact that in two minutes, 
so as to close about five o'clock and leave the morning session free for 
the transaction of new business and hearing reports from the two im- 
portant session committees. Is it your pleasure to take up unfinished 
business, which refers to proposed amendments to the constitution? I 
will read the proposed amendments, which are as follows : 

The Massachusetts Society gave notice at the last Congress and also 
through the Official Bulletin, thus complying with the necessary re- 



134 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

quirements asked for by our Constitution. The Massachusetts Society 
offers this amendment to Section i, Article 3, of the Constitution of 
the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution: 

Amend Section 1 of Article III of the Constitution of the National 
Society of the Sons of the American Revolution by adding thereto after 
the words "Great Britain" the following words and figures : 

"Provided, however, that any male person, above the age of 18 
years and under the age of 21 years, whose qualifications in regard 
to ancestry and personal character are as above prescribed, shall be 
eligible to a qualified membership to be known and designated as 
junior membership, said junior membership to permit to each junior 
member all privileges granted to full membership except those of 
holding office, of voting, of holding any interest in the property or 
funds of the Society or of any Chapter thereof, or of receiving a cer- 
tificate of membership except as hereinafter provided, or of wearing 
any insignia of the Society other than the rosette ; a special certificate 
may be issued to such junior member in such form as may be pre- 
scribed by the Board of Trustees: providing such junior member 
shall not be in arrears for dues, on attaining the age of twenty-one 
years he shall automatically be vested with full membership in the 
Society." 

The Chair: I recognize the President of the Massachusetts Society. 

Compatriot Henry Fuller Punderson: Our members, many of them, 
obtain membership in this Society from ancestors whose service was 
performed when they were very much under 21 years of age, and we 
think it is unfair that men of Revolutionary ancestry who are con- 
sidered of military age in the present war should not be associated 
with us because of the age limit in our By-Laws. The present motion 
is in the way of a compromise. Our original idea was to admit the 
men of 18 years of age into the same membership that all of us 
enjoy, but this was found to have some legal difficulties which made it 
inadvisable, because it would require a change in the charter. As a 
consequence, the present measure is drawn, which I am told by various 
members of the legal fraternity who are members of our Society, amply 
gets around that from the fact that the junior membership proposed de- 
nies to the man any voting power or property rights in the Society 
and in nowise invalidates the charter of this Society. We are anxious 
to have this resolution adopted by the National Society, and I so move. 

(Motion seconded.) 

A Member: Has the committee passed on this? 

The Chair: It has been passed upon by the Executive Committee, 
who recommended it for adoption, and by your trustees, who recom- 
mended it for adoption. Are there any remarks? 

(There being no discussion, the motion was unanimously adopted.) 

The Chair: The other proposed amendment was offered by the 
Maryland State Society and seconded by the Empire State Society, 
and reads as follows : 

Amend Section 4, Article V, of the Constitution of the National 
Society by adding a new paragraph to the section : 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 35 

The members of the Executive Committee other than the President 
General shall be known as Directors General, and by virtue of their 
office shall be members of the National Congress and entitled to vote 
at the annual meeting of the National Congress during their terms of 
office. 

The Chair : I recognize the representative from the Maryland Society 
on our Executive Board, who was the former President of the Mary- 
land Society, Judge Reifsnider. 

Compatriot Reifsnider: I will not undertake to comment upon this 
amendment, which has been before the compatriots and was published 
in the publication from which you have just read. I move the adop- 
tion of that amendment, making the change in the Constitution. 

(The motion was seconded and unanimously adopted.) 

The Chair : Is there any other item of unfinished business that you 
would like to take up at this time? 

Vice-President General Read: Mr. President General, I noticed as 
you were presiding over the deliberations of this Congress that you 
moved the gavel as if it were something which had no special signifi- 
cance. I come from a State which is rich in historic memories, and 
without going into further details, compatriots, I have the consent of 
the President of the Society to present this motion, that the State 
Society of Massachusetts will present the National Society, in order 
to have it produced at the next Congress, with this historic gavel, 
which contains pieces of wood from buildings which are memorable 
in the history of this country, and I submit that proposition to you. 

The Chair: That proposition requires no action by the Congress. 
The Chair most promptly and graciously accepts this offer of the his- 
toric gavel from the Old Bay State. I thank you very much for this 
kind offer, though I presume the gavel will go in the archives of the 
Society, as other historic gavels have gone, and that the next President 
will preside with a gavel similar to this and it may be an inspiration 
to receive other historic gavels. Is there any other business to come 
before this session? If not, we will take a recess to the hour that 
you suggest. 

It was moved and carried to take a recess until May 20, 9.30 a. m. 

Thirtieth Annual Congress, 
Detroit, Mich., May 20, 1919. 

Congress convened at 9.30 a. m., President General Ames in the 
chair. 

The Chair: I ask the compatriots to kindly come to order. Our 
gavel has disappeared, but I do not believe this gathering needs a 
gavel. Vice-President General Thomas W. Williams will please take 
the chair. 

(Vice-President General Williams takes the chair.) 

The Secretary General read a telegram of greeting from the Wash- 
ington State Society, and also the report submitted by Mr. John Lenord 
Merrill on the Washington Guard, the same being as follows: 



136 sons of the: American revolution. 

66 Broadway, New York, May 14, 1919. 

To the President General, National Society, Sons of the American 
Revolution, in Congress assembled at Detroit, Mich. 

Mr. President General : I regret extremely that I can report little 
progress in the work of the National Commandery of the Washington 
Guard of the Sons of the American Revolution. I have given con- 
siderable time to the work, but without the active co-operation of the 
State Societies we can accomplish little. Our work has been handi- 
capped to a considerable extent by war conditions. I rejoice to say 
that the honor roll of the Washington Guard is of credit to the Sons 
of the American Revolution, and I trust some day that we may be 
able to compile a full record of the services of all the sons of our 
members under age who have so zealously and heroically served their 
country in the great World War. 

May I respectfully urge upon this Congress that instructions should 
be issued to each State Society to compile a list of the sons of members 
in the respective States. With such a list and full data accompanying 
the same, we can proceed to thoroughly organize the Washington 
Guard. Without it we can do little. 

I consider the Washington Guard a valuable asset to our Society 
and my services are always at your command. I trust, however, that 
it may be possible to interest a number of younger members in the 
work, appointing them to the general offices and allowing us to aid 
them in the work. 

Respectfully submitted. 

John Lenord Merrill, 

Governor General. 

The Chair: You have heard this report. What is your pleasure? 
If there are no objections, it will take the usual course and be referred 
to the Committee on Official Reports. Will the Secretary General 
kindly read a letter just received from Vice-President General Frank 
W. Rawles? 

The Secretary General read the letter, as follows. 

Little Rock, Ark., May 17, 1919. 
Mr. Louis Annin Ames, 

President General, S. A. R., Detroit, Mich. 

Dear President General: I regret very much to find, at the last 
moment, that I cannot attend the National Congress at Detroit this 
year. I had looked forward to this with a great deal of pleasure. 

I had hoped to be able to report something as to all the Societies in 
my district, but am unable to do so, owing to many of them not giving 
me the data. 

The State of Louisiana, reported last year as having 102 members, 
now has 215 members, with six applications pending — an increase of 
113 members, or over 1 10 per cent. This will not only entitle her to 
one of the "Ames Banners," but also to the Traveling Banner. 

I regret that President C. Robert Churchill cannot be there. The 
Society will be represented by delegates, however. 

I am informed by President E. G. Spilman, of the Oklahoma Society, 
that they have surpassed the requirements necessary to win one of the 
Ames banners, though I cannot give you the exact figures. 

This Society has been active in war measures, and, through a peti- 
tion presented to the legislature, steps have been taken toward the 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 37 

erection of a suitable soldiers' and sailors' monument for those who 
gave their lives to their country. Constitution Day was observed. 

North Dakota has been doing good work, though their increase will 
probably not entitle them to a banner. 

Minnesota has been doing good work, though I have not been in- 
formed as to late activities. 

Arkansas has had the best year in her history. Though her report 
last year showed 61 members, in reality it was only 59, as one of the 
members reported had died the year before, and another member was 
counted who did not complete his papers nor pay his dues until last 
February. She paid on 74 members this year, or an increase of 15 
members net. 

Arkansas observed Washington's Birthday, La Fayette's Birthday, 
and other events. Our Society, unaided, secured the passage of a 
flag law last winter, modeled after the national bill. It was signed 
in the presence of members of all the patriotic societies. 

Her members took active parts in all war activities, eleven of her 
members were officers in our National Army, and several of them 
were wounded on the field of battle. Mr. Marc F. Sanderson will 
represent Arkansas at the Detroit Congress. 

Regretting that I have not further data as to the Mississippi Valley, 
West District, and wishing Detroit a most successful Congress, 
I am, most cordially, 

Frank W. RawlES, 

Vice-President General. 

The Chair: If there are no objections, the report of Vice-President 
General Rawles will take the usual course and be referred to the 
Committee on Official Reports. 

(President General Ames takes the chair.) 

The Chair: We are ready to receive the report from the Committee 
on Official Reports and Recommendations. Is the chairman ready to 
report? Past President General Nelson H. McClary is chairman of

delightful manner and the efficient way in which he has disposed of all 
of yesterday's official reports of the officers and committees. 

We will now have the report of the Committee on Resolutions, of 
which Past President General R. C. Ballard Thruston is the chairman. 
Is Past President General Thruston in the room or has he designated 
some other member of the committee to report? While we are waiting 
for the report of that committee I ask if there is any new business 
to come before the Congress at this time? If not, it is my pleasure 
to call to the platform the Presidents of the Massachusetts and New 
Jersey Societies. Last year, as you know, New Jersey had the honor 
and the distinction of presenting to the Massachusetts Society the 
Syracuse banner, to be awarded to the Society showing the largest in- 
crease in membership during the year. This banner was won the 
previous year by New Jersey, and presented to Massachusetts, who will 
now return it to New Jersey, that State having a record of 141 new 
members during the past year. Will the representative of Massa- 
chusetts, Compatriot Silsby, kindly come forward, and I call upon 
President Punderson to make the presentation. Will President Vail, 
of New Jersey, come forward and receive the flag in trust for another 
year? Compatriot Punderson has the floor. 



I40 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Compatriot PundErson : Mr. President General and Compatriots, it 
becomes my duty to present to the representative of the New Jersey 
Society this beautiful banner, known as the Syracuse Traveling Ban- 
ner. The Massachusetts Society worked hard to obtain this banner 
and we strove manfully to retain it. The New Jersey Society could 
not be overcome. I want you to take this banner and keep it care- 
fully, for we are determined to take it from you next year. (Laughter 
and applause.) 

Compatriot Vail : Mr. President General and Compatriots, a year ago 
I stood at the Rochester Congress opposite the President of the Massa- 
sachusetts Society and I was obliged then to pass this banner over 
to Massachusetts. New Jersey worked hard to keep it, but failed; 
but at that time I said to the President of the Massachusetts Society 
that New Jersey was not going to be without it for more than one 
year. I wish to call attention to the fact that New Jersey has made 
good. (Applause.) The President of the Massachusetts Society has 
said that we should keep it carefully, for Massachusetts was going 
to make a desperate effort to get it back. If Massachusetts gets it 
back, it will have to run for its money, for we are going to keep it 
more than one } r ear. (Applause.) 

The Chair : A Traveling Banner was presented by the Colorado 
Society, to be awarded each year to the State numbering one hundred 
or more which can now show the greatest net percentage of increase 
in membership. This banner has never been won by any State in the 
Far South. This year, however, Louisiana will have the honor of re- 
ceiving this trophy, having made the enormous percentage of increase 
of 108.8 per cent. This Society has more than doubled its membership 
during the past year, and I ask the representative of the Louisiana 
Society, Compatriot J. H. Weston, to come forward. (Applause.) 
And I ask the President of the State who won this banner last year 
to kindly come forward, the loyal representative of the loyal State 
of Wisconsin. 

Compatriot Walter H. Wright (Wis.) : I trust that the com- 
patriots will not think that Wisconsin has kept the banner up there, 
for we shipped it down here, but it has not arrived. 

The Chair : I am sorry we cannot find this banner, and I ask Com- 
patriot Robinson to bring forward the brightest and best banner in 
the world, and we will use that as the presentation banner. President 
Wright, of the Wisconsin Society, will make the presentation. 

Compatriot Wright: Mr. President General and Compatriots, Wis- 
consin, very much to its surprise, received this banner last year for 
having the largest percentage of gains. This percentage question, if 
you gentlemen have ever figured it out, works very peculiarly. I recall 
the story of a gentleman who was representing a nursery. He sold a 
friend of his some very choice grape settings, and after the trade 
had been made, the gentleman asked him what percentage he had 
made on the sale. He said, "Well, my friend, I have charged you 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 141 

three dollars a root; I know nothing about figuring percentage, but 
they cost us 6 cents apiece. If you can figure the percentage, please 
do so." After figuring for a long time and covering two pages of 
paper, he said, "It can't be done; it runs away out of percentage into 
highway robbery." (Laughter.) I do not mean to intimate that my 
friends from Louisiana have committed highway robbery, but Wisconsin 
has been very proud to be the possessor of this flag for the past year, 
and we take great pleasure in handing it over to our good brothers 
in the Southland. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Weston (La.) : As long as the Wisconsin people have 
failed to produce the Traveling Banner, I am very proud to receive the 
true banner of all Americans, our American Flag. (Applause.) I wish 
to state to the compatriots that we in Louisiana and throughout all the 
South value our citizenship in this country very highly. We are jealous 
of it; we have tried to guard our ballot. We have tried to make it an 
American country, and I think that the Louisianians who were in the 
Marines at Chateau-Thierry and the other points did their service to 
this flag the same as the man from Wisconsin or Michigan did. I 
thank you, compatriots. (Applause.) 

[The Traveling Banner was found in the care of the Secretary of 
the Michigan Society and presented to the representative of the Lou- 
isiana Society.] 

The Chair : I ask Vice-President General Charles French Read to 
kindly come forward and take the chair. 

(Vice-President General Read takes the chair.) 

The Chair : Mr. President General and Compatriots, I esteem it a 
great honor to preside temporarily over the affairs of this Congress and 
accept it as a great honor for the Old Bay State, which I represent. 

President General Ames: May I have the floor for a few minutes? 

Mr. Vice-President General and Compatriots, It is a very pleasant 
duty that I have before me. Some of you will recall that a year ago, 
at the Congress, when so many of our compatriots had answered the 
call to the colors, when so many of our compatriots were engaged in 
activities that were necessary for the faithful carrying out of the enter- 
prise that our Nation had entered into, I offered a banner, to be pre- 
sented to each State Society who during the year which is now closed 
had achieved at least 20 per cent in increased membership, a banner to 
be held in perpetuity by the State Society. And now that we have 
achieved the desired goal, a victory for the world and for the principles 
which this Nation holds most dear, it is my privilege to make good on 
the offer that I made at that time. There is one disappointment, how- 
ever, and that is that there are not to be 48 banners to be presented 
today instead of seven banners. I am very happy to say that quite 
early in the year I knew that Louisiana would win a banner, and the 
banner is here. I did not know until the latter part of last week what 
other State Societies would be entitled to these banners; consequently 
they are not here in completed form; but they are here in sufficient 



142 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

condition to be presented, and my good friend, Compatriot Robertson, 
the Secretary of the Maryland Society, has consented to assist me in 
the presentation. I ask him to bring forth the banners as called for. 

Compatriot Weston, the representative of the Louisiana Society, 
please kindly come forward. I have the great honor and pleasure of 
presenting to you, Compatriot Weston, as the representative of the Lou- 
isiana State Society, this banner for having gone over the top, Lou- 
isiana having increased the membership of its Society over 108 per 
cent, and there is no happier duty devolving upon me at this Conven- 
tion than to present this banner. I trust that Louisiana will keep the 
banner, not only as a memento of the great increase in membership 
that it has made, but of its devotion and loyalty to the ideals of the 
Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, and particularly the 
interest it has in the National Organization. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Weston : Mr. President General, Mr. Chairman, and 
Compatriots, in receiving this banner in behalf of the Louisiana So- 
ciety, we will always remember Detroit, Mr. Ames, and all the members 
we have met here very pleasantly. I say we ; I speak for our whole 
Chapter. I would like to call the attention of the Society to the absence 
of representatives of Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and the Carolinas. 
The Daughters are strong in those States. Why is it that there is no 
representative of those States here? There are, I think, in New Orleans 
descendants of the Signers of the Declaration. We tried to get them 
to come into our Society, but we have failed. Now I think that there 
is a very large field in those States that is being opened up as a new 
country. I would like to invite every man's and woman's attention to 
our South. In Louisiana we have some of the greatest salt mines. We 
have the largest sulphur mine, one of our principal assets during this 
war. We contributed largely to the oil and gasoline supply. We con- 
tributed sugar and cotton. Louisiana is the second lumber-producing 
State in the United States. We were not dependent upon any foreign 
country for sulphur. We furnished the bulk of the lumber for the 
cantonments. The South furnished about 300,000 cars of lumber in 
about ninety days for the cantonments, and that is some feat for any 
people to do. Even if they do have the hookworm down there and 
mosquitoes and things like that, I don't think we are so very slow. I 
thank you all. (Applause.) 

President General Ames : I would like to have come forward the 
representative of Oklahoma. Oklahoma has the distinction of having 
increased its membership 28 per cent during the past year. Is there any 
representative from the State of Oklahoma present? I ask President 
George Albert Smith, of Utah, to come forward. (Applause.) 

It is a pleasure, on behalf of the National Society, to present this 
banner to the Utah Society for its interest in the National Society. 
The National Society asks you to accept this banner, when completed, 
as showing what a deep affection we have for the Utah Society, of 
which you are the worthy President. (Applause.) 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 43 

Compatriot George Albert Smith : Mr. President and Compatriots, 
this is a very auspicious occasion to me. I have been coming to these 
meetings regularly, and last year we thought we had the Traveling 
Banner, but we missed it by just three members, and I think that we 
missed it because we figured that we would keep it another year and 
we did not get all the members we might have had ; so we blame our- 
selves. This year we started out with a determination to have one of 
these banners, and I am grateful, on behalf of the Utah Society, to 
receive this, and accept it with the feeling that it will be one of our 
treasures. Utah is one of the newest States of the Union, way out in 
the mountains, but we always feel at home with our compatriots, and 
I take this opportunity, as a representative of the Utah Society, to 
thank the members who are here for their uniform kindness to the 
delegates from Utah who have attended the Congress. I have come 
farther than any other member here to attend the Congress, and I be- 
lieve I have got as much out of it and as good a time as any of you. 
(Applause.) I accept this banner from President General Ames, and 
desire to say to him that there are a number of our associates in Utah 
who are interested in him, and it gives us a special pleasure to receive 
at his hands this beautiful gift. I would like to say further that the 
Utah Society pledges itself not to be satisfied with 20 per cent, but to 
continue to increase the membership of the Society out there as we 
find members in different places. And now I would like to say that the 
last time we calculated Utah was sixth among the States of the Union 
in membership in proportion to her population. We take this back with 
the hope that we will carry off the Traveling Banner next year, and we 
would like the two contending States to take notice that we are after 
it and that we intend to carry it off. (Applause.) 

President General Ames : The representative of the State of Arkan- 
sas. Arkansas has an increased membership of 25 per cent. The banner 
is here. I regret to say the representative from Arkansas is not here. 
The banner will be sent. 

Will the representative from the State of Idaho come forward? 
Idaho increased its membership 24 per cent, and the banner is here and 
will be forwarded to Idaho. Is there a representative present? I know 
there is one from Wisconsin, and I ask President Wright to come for- 
ward. "To him who gives, he shall receive." (Laughter and applause.) 
Compatriot Wright: Mr. President General and Compatriots, you 
see what you can do with percentage. (Laughter and applause.) We 
will take this banner to Wisconsin, Mr. President General, and with it 
we will take the recollection of your generosity in presenting it, and 
we shall always hold you in grateful memory, and we trust at some 
time in the future that we may have a visit from you in person. I 
thank you. (Applause.) . . 

President General Ames : It will be a pleasure and an honor to visit 
the State of Wisconsin and the S. A. R. Society and look upon their 
consolation banner in their own home. (Applause.) 



144 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Will the representative of the Missouri Society, Mr. Linn Paine, 
come forward? Missouri has the record of having increased its mem- 
bership 27.5 per cent. (Applause.) I am very happy to present this 
banner to the representative from the State of Missouri, and I know 
that he will be just as happy to take it home, and with it the friendship, 
the fellowship, and the joy of the National Society in the increased 
prosperity of the Missouri Society. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Paine : Mr. President, it appears that this entire Na- 
tional Congress rejoices with me in the fact that Missouri has won this 
prize. I assure you that I am very proud of it and very grateful to 
you as the donor and very grateful to the Society for the assistance 
that they have given us. I shall convey this to St. Louis and see that 
it is presented to the State organization with fitting ceremony. This is 
given to us as a mark of work well done, but we prefer to receive it as 
a token of work well begun; we have not ended. (Applause.) We 
believe that this will lead us on to greater achievements. We will see 
that it is exhibited in the State of Missouri and throughout the Missis- 
sippi Valley, and we shall use it as an aid in promoting the great prin- 
ciples of the Sons of the American Revolution, the truest and purest 
Americanism. (Applause.) 

The Chair : Compatriots, I think we are all agreed that we are very 
much indebted to our President General for having introduced this new 
feature into our Congresses by his courteous and generous offer. 

Past President General Thruston : Your Committee on Resolutions 
think that President General Ames has introduced into our proceedings 
a most interesting and unique feature, one which has never been intro- 
duced before except in a smaller way. It was done by the Colorado 
Society a number of years ago, in the form of the Traveling Banner, 
and we feel that President General Ames is entitled to special thanks 
for these beautiful banners and for this beautiful ceremony which he 
has instituted. We therefore desire to introduce the following resolu- 
tion: 

Resolved, That the thanks of the National Society of the Sons of the 
American Revolution be, and they are hereby, tendered to President 
General Ames for the banners presented through the Congress to the 
State Societies of Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Idaho, 
Wisconsin, and Utah, whose membership has been, during this past 
year, increased 20 per cent or more. 

And we would suggest that, if it meets with the approval of the 
Congress, this be done by a rising vote. 

The Chair : Compatriots, you have heard the motion as introduced 
by Past President General Thruston. 

Compatriot Curtis, chairman of the Committee on Increased Mem- 
bership : As chairman of the Committee on Increased Membership, I 
rise to second this motion. I feel a personal interest in it because 
Mr. Ames made this generous offer not only for the benefit of the 
Society, but to help me in my work on that committee. (Laughter.) 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 145 

It is a thing that has never been done before, and he made the offer 
through my committee. And believe me, gentlemen, it has helped us 
very much, and it gives me great pleasure to second that motion of 
the Past President General. 

Compatriot Bacon : These banners as presented by Mr. Ames have 
a recruiting value to this Society, and recruiting is what we need. This 
Society has 17,000 members, I believe, in the whole United States; the 
Daughters have some 100,000 or 110,000, I believe, and I feel a little bit 
ashamed of the men, and it seems to me that if the effort is made, as 
our friend from Louisiana says, in those Southern States, which are 
very much American, that something could be done in this recruiting 
line by banners or whatever it might be, not particularly from a per- 
sonal donor, as Mr. Ames, our President General, has done, but even 
by the Society, and we could build a Society up to the point that it 
should reach. We talk about educating the aliens ; we talk about the 
Creed of the American Nation ; we circulate that among our people. I 
want to say that we are a failure as a Society of the S. A. R. if we 
cannot, in this great United States, produce more than 17,000 members. 
(Applause.) I am heartily in favor of this resolution of thanks to 
our President General. It is going to do a great good. 

(The motion was then adopted by a rising vote.) 

( President General Ames takes the chair.) 

The Chair: After the rising vote I am here. (Laughter.) Com- 
patriots, I thank you. I appreciate greatly your expression of good-will 
toward me, but the pleasure connected with the banners was entirely 
mine. I was thankful that I had the opportunity and that it was my 
privilege to make this slight contribution as an incentive to increased 
membership this year. And the joy of it is that all of the banners that 
have been won have been won by State Societies whose membership 
at the beginning of the year was less than 200 each. We have strength- 
ened seven of our smaller State Societies. I wish all Societies could 
have had banners ; but, as that was not to be, I am reconciled that the 
larger Societies, who have memberships sufficient to take care of their 
interest and to keep them alive, had to go without banners. I only 
wish that the banners had been here all in completed form, but four 
days gave very little notice for the workers; but soon the banners will 
be sent to the State Societies in completed form, like the one that was 
presented to the Louisiana Society. Is there any new business to come 
before the house? 

Compatriot Remington, President of the Empire State Society: I 
would move, Mr. President General, that this organization continue 
giving these banners, and that the expense thereof be defrayed by the 
Treasury : that a banner be given to each State increasing its member- 
ship 20 per cent, at the expense of the National Organization. 

(Motion seconded.) 

The Chair: And I presume that also carries with it the regulation 
that the increase must be at least ten members. 



I46 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Treasurer General Burroughs : I would like very much to see a 
resolution like that adopted, but the Treasury of the National Society 
is not so large as to entail a cost of this character. If the advocates of 
increased membership should induce all the State Societies to have 
banners, we would have a bankrupt treasury, I am sorry to say, and I 
think this motion ought to be presented to a committee and not be 
adopted by this Congress at this session. 

Past President General Thruston : Just before Treasurer General 
Burroughs spoke, I had had the same thought in mind. Having been 
President General of the Organization and having had the finances to 
consider, it struck me that it would be better to suggest to the mover 
of the motion that this matter be referred to the Executive Committee, 
to take such action as they think the Society can afford in that matter. 

Compatriot Remington : I think that is very proper, and I accept that 
suggestion, and I believe that if we get to work that the question will 
be properly solved. The increased membership will certainly take care 
of the finances, but I think it is very proper that this resolution should 
be referred to the Executive Committee with power. 

The Chair: The mover of the motion accepts the amendment, and 
the motion now is that this matter be referred to the Executive Com- 
mittee with power. 

Mr. Bacon : I will speak upon the amendment. It seems to me that 
reference to the Executive Committee is a little too far off. We have 
in the Congress here representative men who have traveled a good 
many miles to attend this convention, and it seems to me that we might 
raise a fund here today, among the members who are assembled, of, 
we will say, $1,000; it can be done at $25 or $50 apiece, if necessary. 
Now, if you want to show your Americanism and show your desire 
for recruiting, that is something that I believe we should do here 
today. I believe these banners are a great incentive for all the Societies, 
and I believe that each one of us as individuals should today contribute, 
if decided by this Congress, toward a fund to have these banners for 
next year, and I make that as an amendment to this motion, that we 
take subscriptions from the members here today in order to put this 
thing in effect. 

Compatriot Banks (N. J.) : It seems to me that the prize is the 
individuality of this beautiful banner, and for this Organization to 
plan to give a banner to each State which in one year increased its 
membership 20 per cent I think would be a great mistake. If a State 
has gained in membership, it should have an order of merit added to 
it in some way, but the beauty of this banner is its individuality, which 
would be destroyed by having it given out every year by the Organi- 
zation. 

The Chair : There is no second to the amendment, so the motion as 
first amended by the mover of the motion is now before the house. 

Compatriot Arter : I move to amend by substituting 50 per cent for 
20 per cent. 
(No second.) 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 147 

The Chair: The amendment is not seconded; so the motion before 
the house is the original motion as amended, the amendment being 
accepted by the mover of the motion. The motion is that the Society 
donate a banner to each State organization whose membership is in- 
creased 20 per cent, provided that that increase shall not be less than 
ten members, and the matter is referred to the Executive Committee 
of the Xational Society with power. That is the motion for which the 
question has been called. 

(Motion adopted.) 

Compatriot Curtis (Conn.) : It has been suggested by my neighbor 
that we put an extra star on the banner for each additional 10 per cent 
they get, very much as they did with the Liberty Loan banner. That 
question, of course, can be taken care of by the Executive Committee 
when it comes up. 

The Chair: Is there any other item of new business to come before 
the house at this time? The Secretary has an announcement to make. 

The Secretary General : The representative of the Louisiana So- 
ciety, Mr. John H. Weston, has had prepared, or, rather, the President 
of that Society has had prepared, a book in connection with the 
Society. It is not local in its interest, but it is general, and he has 
brought a sufficient number of copies to supply the delegates. I am 
somewhat familiar with the contents of this book, and can therefore 
say that the delegates will be very highly edified if they will read some 
of the reasons for becoming members of the Sons of the American 
Revolution. This Louisiana Society during the past year has com- 
piled this book of about 70 pages, containing a lot of useful informa- 
tion in connection with the Society. 

I also want to announce, as supplementing the report of Mr. Curtis, 
of Connecticut, or, rather, Mr. Jenks, in regard to Americanization, 
naturalization, and the Constitution of the United States, and the 
copies of papers in reference to those subjects, the Department of 
Labor, the U. S. Department of Labor, has taken over the distribution 
of these pamphlets, or pamphlets in reference to these subjects, and 
any member of this Society or any person interested can get them 
upon writing to the Department of Labor at Washington. The particu- 
lar man in charge of these pamphlets and books is the Hon. Raymond 
F. Crisp, and during the past few months I have had occasion to refer 
to him probably 25 or 30 applications for these books. They come 
from all sorts of societies, particularly from societies educating the 
aliens, and the requests come from schools, private and public. 

The Chair: I recognize the chairman of the Committee on Resolu- 
tions, Past President General Thruston. 

Past President General Thruston: Those of us who have had the 
pleasure of entertaining the Congress of the National Society appre- 
ciate what has been done here, and what has been done wherever we 
have been entertained. We know and we realize that in thanking a 
State Society we are thanking each and every individual member. We 



I48 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

know that in thanking the chairman of the committee we are not thank- 
ing him personally, but we are thanking the body which he represents ; 
and therefore your Committee on Recommendations has prepared a 
resolution expressing our appreciation of the courtesies extended to us 
here and by the various organizations, and with your permission I will 
read this resolution : 

Be it resolved, That the Congress of the Sons of the American Revo- 
lution record its appreciation of and extends its thanks to the Gov- 
ernor of the State of Michigan and the Mayor of the City of Detroit, 
represented by the corporation counsel, for the cordial welcome ex- 
tended to the delegates and visiting women of the Congress; 

To the Michigan State Society and the Detroit Chapter, Sons of the 
American Revolution, for their labors in behalf of and hospitality to the 
Congress assembled in this city; 

To the Louisa St. Clair Chapter, Daughters of the American Revo- 
lution, for the delightful luncheon, entertainment, and hospitality ex- 
tended to the delegates and visiting women ; 

To Senator and Mrs. Truman H. Newberry for their cordial invi- 
tation to the reception for the delegates and visiting women, although 
the necessary attendance of Senator Newberry at the extra session of 
Congress required the cancellation of plans for their reception ; 

To Major and Mrs. Frederick M. Alger for the reception for the 
delegates and visiting women at their home "By Way," Grosse Pointe 
Village. 

(On motion the resolution was adopted by a rising vote.) 

The Chair: The chair would state that at this time it would be the 
pleasure of the Congress to receive invitations for the 31st Session 
of the Congress, a year from now. We had an invitation that the 
Congress of next year should be held in Massachusetts ; but, as the 
ceremonies- connected with the Tercentenary of the Landing of the 
Pilgrims has been postponed for one year, it is thought advisable by 
the Massachusetts Society and by your National Society to postpone 
the meeting in Massachusetts for a year. Are there any invitations to 
come before the Congress at this time from any of the State Societies? 
These invitations will be received and referred to the Executive Com- 
mittee. The announcement is made so that, in case State Societies 
would like to entertain the National Society, they may present their 
invitations by mail or on the floor of the Congress, which will be re- 
ferred to the Executive Committee. 

There seems to be no other item of business at this time, so we will 
proceed to the election of officers. The chair will be pleased to receive 
nominations for President General. I recognize on the floor of the 
convention Senator Henry W. Austin, of Illinois. I am very glad to 
present him to the Congress. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Austin : Gentlemen, three years ago at this time a body 
of compatriots went from Illinois to New Jersey and had the audacity 
to put in nomination a candidate for the office of President General. 
I say audacity, because Illinois has never boasted of more than one 
Revolutionary patriot, and even George Rogers Clark was born in 
Virginia. Yet such was our prestige, even at the time of the un- 



PROCEEDINGS OE DETROIT CONGRESS. I49 

pleasantness of 1776, that Mr. Clark wanted to join the Society and, 
not being able to find the Illinois trenches in any sector of the battle 
front, he went to the headquarters of the Continental Army and stated 
his case with such good effect that it resulted in his taking the war 
out to Illinois, and in that way he accomplished just the same result 
and became the Revolutionary hero, not only of Illinois, but of the 
whole Mississippi Valley. But the trouble was that he was the only 
one we had, and when we went to New Jersey, where the Revolution- 
ary heroes are as numerous almost as the leaves on the trees, it really 
awed me. We were on territory there made sacred by the blood of 
the soldiers who suffered at Valley Forge. They took us from the 
Convention Hall to the identical spot where Washington crossed the 
Delaware. We saw buildings and places made historical by the presence 
of Washington and Lafayette. It was then that we really knew what 
it meant to be Sons of the Revolution. We had a great time. We 
will remember that all our lives; but after we came to think the matter 
over, though it overawed us to a certain extent, when we came to 
realize that the blood of the same Revolutionary ancestors flowed in 
our veins as was to be found in the veins of the men who lived in that 
Revolutionary territory, we thought the exigencies of the situation de- 
manded that we put up a candidate. By that I mean that we had a 
candidate so good that we thought the Society absolutely needed his 
leadership. It was certainly interesting to us to see how amused some 
of those Eastern delegates were at the faith we had in Chicago and in 
our Chicago candidate ; but we really told everything there was to tell 
about him ; there was nothing to conceal. We told them, in the first 
place, that he was a man among men. We told them he was popular, 
as was evidenced by the fact that a certain election where he was the 
only candidate, there was a large vote as a personal tribute to him, and 
for no other cause. We said he was generous, and it is evidenced by 
the fact that when he was on a certain committee to build a building 
and the money ran out, he finished it with his own money. We told 
them he was an educated man, and also said that he was a man who 
had plenty of time, that he was a man who had retired from active 
business and was a man of leisure, a man who gave more time to public 
than to his own affairs. But that was three years ago. Since then we 
have had a great war, and I think it is proper today for me to say a 
few things about the war service of our candidate. In the first place, 
his office and mine are in the same block and not far apart, and I have 
had occasion to see him from time to time; but for a year at least 
previous to the signing of the armistice, if I ever got to that office 
after a quarter past nine in the morning, the invariable reply was, "He 
is on the Exemption Board." If you know what Exemption Board 
service means, the Exemption Board for drafted men, that is quite a 
service ; in fact, our Brother McClary was the Exemption Board Presi- 
dent for a while. I know something about that. That was merely one 
thing our candidate was engaged in; he was the chairman of the War 



150 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Council in Evanston; he was U. S. Government lecturer at the U. S. 
Training Station; then he was precinct captain in five separate Liberty 
Loans, and he was the chairman of the Sons of the American Revolution 
in Illinois for our war activities. But while on the subject of com- 
mittees, just let me call your attention to this: For some years he has 
been chairman of our Committee on Americanization and Aliens, and 
incidentally member of the national committee that does the identical 
work, which meets in New York. Each of those committees has been 
mutually beneficial to the other committees. Before we leave the sub- 
ject of the war, let me mention one other thing: This man has an only 
son. A year ago that son was a lieutenant in the war in France, and 
that man is thanking Providence yet for having saved his son for him, 
at the battle of Chateau-Thierry. 

Now, friends, I mentioned that we had a candidate before the con- 
vention three years ago. You all know he was not elected, but I did 
not say that he was defeated. Defeat is a word which some men 
never quite understand, particularly if they happen to have a surname 
beginning with the letter J. Now, I do not refer to the kind of ex- 
perience that our old, perpetual, quadrennial presidental candidate, 
William Jennings, has from year to year — I do not mean that kind of 
a jay. (Laughter and applause.) He is' defeated and he ought to 
know it; the J comes in the wrong place in his name (laughter) ; but 
let me call your attention to two cases in American history which I 
think are applicable in our case today. 

Now, I am an enthusiastic and loyal Republican and always have 
been. Yet whenever the Democrats have anything on us I am willing 
to give them the benefit. Now, if you will take the period of American 
history between our two great Presidents, Washington and Lincoln, the 
period from 1797 to 1861, who are the two great Presidents that stand 
out. Take, first of all, Old Hickory; he had his faults and lots of 
them ; he had a tempestuous career ; he had probably more enemies 
than any one man in the country, but of course, also, more friends, and 
when he was in the White House everybody knew that we had one live 
President. That was his character. Now, if we turn back the pages 
of history for a quarter of a century, to the time of Jeffersonian 
simplicity, we have another great President, a President who was the 
most far-seeing statesman of the first half of the century. We hear a 
great deal these days about the Monroe Doctrine. But history will bear 
me out when I say that it was really Jefferson's Doctrine. Before 
Monroe put forth that doctrine he communicated with the Sage of 
Monticello and got the necessary data. 

Why do I mention those two men, Jackson and Jefferson? What 
have they to do with the case I will tell you : I did not know until 
I looked it up, but one of these men when he first sought the office of 
President did not receive it. Was not this a blessing in disguise? It 
put him before the people; they knew he was a presidential possibility, 
a candidate for the Presidency for four years ; they scrutinized him, 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 151 

looked at his character, saw his qualifications, and when the right time 
came, four years later, they said to him, "Well done, good and faithful 
servant, take the Presidental chair." And later on, four years after 
that, they were so well pleased with his service that they gave another 
term to each man, Jefferson and Jackson. Now what does this mean? 
Do you call such men as that defeated before the people of this coun- 
try? No. Was it not rather an introduction to the public? Now, my 
friends, the situation with us is a parallel one today. We have a candi- 
date who has all the necessary qualities. As I say, he is popular; he is 
generous ; he is enthusiastic ; he has the time to give us. We know by 
our experience in the Illinois Society that he does things well, when he 
does them, and anything he undertakes is well done. He has given 
a large portion of his time to the public service. 

Now, just incidentally, I might mention that last week he gave me 
a bill to introduce in the State Senate. He is a member of the school 
board; he saw a necessary improvement in the school law, and that 
bill, T hope, will be a law before very long. It is well on its way. 
That is just incidental. But, friends, can we afford not to give the 
ability and the energy of such a man as this a larger scope than can 
be found in the offices of any State Society or in the offices of the 
National Society less than that of President General? 

A few years ago a man was elected a justice of the peace in South 
Carolina. He hunted up the town clerk and said he wanted to be sworn 
in. After the necessary amount of profanity or otherwise, the clerk 
said to him, "Well, it's all right," and he turned around to the clerk 
and said, "Well, Mr. Clerk, am I now to understand that I am entirely 
empowered and qualified?" The clerk happened to be of a different 
political party, and did not like this fellow very well, and he said to 
him, "You are empowered all right enough, but all the saints couldn't 
qualify you." 

Now, my friends, we are in a diametrically opposite position today 
with our candidate. We have a candidate who is amply qualified, who 
is qualified in every respect, and we leave to all the saints here present 
to empower him. (Laughter and applause.) I use that word with 
discretion, because we have confidence in this jury. You have our case. 
It is with great pleasure that I put into nomination for the office of 
President General Chancellor L. Jenks, of Illinois. (The audience rose 
and applauded.) 

Dr. George C. F. Williams (Conn.) : Mr. President General and 
Compatriots, in accordance with the unanimous wish of the men of 
Connecticut who are here, a wish with which I am in full sympathy 
and hearty accord, I rise to second the nomination, and it is with 
special pleasure that I second the nomination of a compatriot so worthy 
and so well qualified, so fitted by natural endowment and by experience 
to carry on with deep sincerity and high purpose the noble work con- 
templated by the founders of this Organization. It is, sir, therefore, 
with profound satisfaction that I second the nomination to this office 



152 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

of great opportunity for genuine service, the Presidency General of the 
National Society, of our compatriot, Chancellor L. Jenks. (Applause.) 
I do this in behalf of the Connecticut Society. 

Compatriot George H. Barbour, of the Michigan Society : I am very 
proud to follow a gentleman from Connecticut, because that is my 
native State; I lived there some 48 years ago. I hold in my hand 
copies of resolutions that were adopted by the Illinois Society of the 
Sons of the American Revolution endorsing Mr. Chancellor L. Jenks, 
and in behalf of Michigan I wish to second the nomination of Mr. 
Jenks. (Applause.) 

Judge Remington (N. Y.) : I do not rise to represent the signers 
exactly, but on behalf of the Empire State Society I desire to second 
the nomination of Mr. Jenks for the office of President General. We 
have seen his work at the various sessions of this Congress and the 
sessions of preceding Congresses, and we feel that he is a man who 
will add luster to the roll of distinguished Presidents General of this 
Organization. It is therefore on behalf of the delegation from the 
Empire State that I second his nomination. 

Compatriot Guthrie (Pa.) : If it is in order at this time, I, on behalf 
of Pennsylvania, would offer a motion that the nominations close. 

(Motion seconded.) 

Compatriot Curtis : I would supplement that by asking that the 
Secretary be empowered to cast one ballot for Chancellor L. Jenks. 

Compatriot Guthrie : I accept the amendment. 

The Chair: The motion is that the nominations close and that the 
Secretary General be instructed to cast one ballot, as the expression of 
the Congress, for Chancellor L. Jenks, of Illinois, for President General 
of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, he 
being the only nominee before the Congress. 

(The motion was unanimously adopted.) 

The Chair: It is unanimous and the Secretary will carry out the 
instructions of the Congress. 

The Secretary General: Mr. President General, in accordance with 
the unanimous wish of the Society, the Secretary General has the dis- 
tinguished honor to cast the ballot of the entire Society for Chancellir 
L. Jenks. of Illinois, as President General. 

The Chair : The chair declares that Chancellor L. Jenks, of Illinois. 
is unanimously elected President General of the National Society of 
the Sons of the American Revolution for the coming year. (The mem- 
bers rose and applauded.) I appoint as a committee to escort our dear 
friend, the newly elected President General of the National Society 
of the Sons of the American Revolution, to a seat upon the platform 
Past Presidents General Wentworth, Thruston, McClary, and Wood- 
worth. I think they can bring him in. 

(The members rose and applauded Compatriot Jenks as he entered 
the hall.) 

The Chair: Compatriot Jenks, it is my good fortune, my honor, and 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 53, 

ni}- privilege to welcome you to this platform as the newly elected 
President General of the National Society of the Sons of the American 
Revolution. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Jenks : Mr. President General and Compatriots of the 
National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, I hope you 
don't expect a speech ; I had a perfectly good one, but it is gone. I am 
trying to show my appreciation of this honor by not making a speech. 
I have got the notes in my pocket (laughter), but I know that I can't, 
read them, and all that I can do is to tell you that I cannot give utter- 
ance to my sense of the greatness of this honor; and yet I know, 
compatriots, that it is a compliment, not so much for me personally 
as for the great Society to which I belong, and on behalf of the Illinois 
Society I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I recognize 
in this election, so unanimous, so spontaneous, a call to the very best 
that there is in me, and the best in me will respond to that call. I am 
driven in self-defense to turn to the splendid principles and ideals of 
our Society to guide me in the responsibilities which will rest upon me. 
The decorations of the Society, which it will be my proud privilege to 
wear, will arouse in me the most earnest desire to absorb more and 
more the inspirations which form the basis of our loved Organization. 
I have seen, we have all seen, the strengthening, inspiring, quicken- 
ing power of our ideals, and if I can absorb those ideals I can perform 
the duties of this office in a way to reflect the united sentiment which 
has placed me in this position. The call to the colors put every one 
of us in active service, but the declaration of peace has not ended our 
labors, nor has it removed from us the responsibilities which rest 
upon us. 

It is not difficult, under the quickening impulse of a war in progress, 
to be alert, but, compatriots, in the relaxed hour of triumph and vic- 
tory the enemies of our Nation lurk unnoticed. We have as much to 
meet now as we had at the beginning of this war, and the responsibility 
lies more upon us who appreciate the value of the American ideal and 
who proclaim it than upon others upon whom it has not made the 
same impression. The Sons of the American Revolution should lead, 
not follow, those who search out, denounce, and destroy the hidden 
dangers that menace our blood-bought peace. I feel a sense of great 
indebtedness to those who have preceded me in this office, especially to 
those with whom I have enjoyed a warm and loving friendship. They 
have set a pretty rapid pace for me. But they have not only done that, 
they have illumined the way. It will be my great desire to continue to 
reflect the impulses which have controlled the splendid patriots whom 
this Society has honored. This unanimous action of yours today 
throws upon me the responsibility, which I gladly assume, of reflecting 
in my administration the oneness of the patriotic thought of this So- 
ciety. Thank you. (Applause.) 

The Chair: I trust it will not be misunderstood, but it is out of the 
kindness of mv heart and consideration for you that I am going to 



154 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

ask that the nominating speeches from now on be limited to three 
minutes and the seconding speech to one minute. Nominations are 
now in order for Vice-Presidents General. I recognize Compatriot 
Curtis. 

Compatriot Curtis : Mr. President General, in making this presenta- 
tion I recognize that the chief quality must be brevity; the President 
General almost took the words out of my mouth. The second qualifi- 
cation must be practicability. I have been working with the Vice- 
Presidents as chairman of the Committee on Increased Membership for 
the past year. I know well the difficulties and I know also that we 
must have Vice-Presidents that can be worked with. We want men 
who will take hold of the problems of their different States over which 
they are elected, men who will work with the administration, men who 
will work with the presidents of their various Societies and adequately 
represent the National Society in their districts. As the author of the 
amendment creating the new order of vice-presidents, I am particu- 
larly anxious to get a good man in New England. The Massachusetts 
Society had that honor last year and did splendid work; in fact, I 
might say (if Mr. Read will close his ears for a minute) that he gave 
me as much aid as any vice-president we had. Now, in looking for 
another man, as Mr. Read feels that he has done his share, I offer you 
as my personal candidate Mr. George F. Burgess, President of the 
Connecticut Society, as Vice-President General for the New England 
District. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Merrick: In behalf of the Maine delegates, I am very 
glad to second the nomination of Compatriot Burgess as one who will 
render the best possible assistance for the District of New England. 

Compatriot Punderson : On behalf of the Massachusetts Society, it 
gives me great pleasure to second the nomination of Mr. Burgess. He 
is known and loved by us all. 

Compatriot Vail (N. J.) : I will make my remark about as brief as 
possible. I rise to nominate for Vice-President General of the Middle 
District one who is known to most of you, one who has attended the 
Congresses faithfully and been a hard worker for the Society in 
national work as well as State work, one who has shown by his ability, 
his promptness, and attention to work that he is well fitted for any 
office he may be elected to. I therefore have the honor of nominating 
for Vice-President General of the Middle and Coast District Thomas 
W. Williams, of New Jersey. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Reifsnider : It is with pleasure that the Maryland 
Society seconds the nomination of Compatriot Williams for Vice- 
President of the Middle and Coast District. 

Compatriot Guthrie (Pa.) : It is with great pleasure that Pennsyl- 
vania seconds the nomination of Compatriot Williams, of New Jersey. 

Past President General Woodworth (N. Y.) : In behalf of the Em- 
pire State Society, I wish to second the nomination of Mr. Williams 
for the office of Vice-President General. 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 55 

Compatriot Sherman (Ohio) : I rise to nominate a candidate from 
Ohio. For man}' years he has served the Anthony Wayne Chapter of 
Toledo. For many, many years he has served the State Society, and 
for many, many years he has served on the committees of the National 
Society. He is Past President of the Anthony Wayne Chapter, Past 
President of the Ohio Society, and past master of the committee work 
of the National Society. I wish to present the name of Moulton Houk, 
of Ohio, as Vice-President General for the Mississippi Valley (East) 
District. (Applause.) 

A Member: For the Illinois Society I take pleasure in seconding the 
nomination of our faithful and loyal compatriot, Colonel Houk. 

Compatriot Taylor (Mich.) : I take pleasure in seconding the nomi- 
nation of the candidate already named. I think he should be rewarded 
for his great ability and his long and faithful service. 

The Chair: Are there any other nominations? There are five Vice- 
Presidents General to be elected; only three have been nominated. 
There are Vice-Presidents General to be elected to succeed Frank W. 
Rawles, of the Mississippi Valley (West) District, and Thomas A. 
Perkins, of the Mountain and Pacific Coast District. The chair will 
entertain nominations for these two Vice-President Generalships. 

Compatriots Steele : I represent New York and wish to nominate 
and do nominate Mr. Paine for the Mississippi Valley (West) Dis- 
trict. 

(The nomination was seconded by compatriots representing New 
Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana.) 

Compatriot Woopworth (N. Y.) : Many of us who were out to the 
Pacific Coast in 1915 met a gentleman, a member of the judiciary of 
the State of Washington, and were charmed with his personality and 
his intelligence. He qualified when he first took the office. I think 
he was interested in our Society and our work, and all of us were im- 
pressed, I think, with his interest. It is with great pleasure, in the 
absence of a representative of the State of Washington, that I place 
in nomination as Vice-President for the Mountain and Pacific District 
Judge Overton Ellis, of Olympia, Wash. 

Compatriot Curtis: I move that the nominations be now closed and 
the Secretary be instructed to cast one ballot for these five Vice- 
Presidents. 

(The motion was seconded and unanimously adopted.) 

The Secretary General: In accordance with the order of the con- 
vention, I deposit the ballot for Compatriot George F. Burgess for the 
first district, Compatriot Thomas W. Williams, of New Jersey, for the 
second district, Compatriot Moulton Houk, of Ohio, for the third dis- 
trict, Compatriot Linn Paine, of Missouri, for the fourth district, and 
Compatriot Overton Ellis, of the State of Washington, for the fifth 
district. 

(The Chair declared the above candidates duly elected.) 

The Chair: I ask the Vice-Presidents General newly elected who 



156 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

are present, Compatriot Burgess, of Connecticut; Compatriot Williams, 
of New Jersey; Compatriot Paine, of Missouri, and Compatriot Houk, 
of Ohio, to kindly rise and receive the congratulations of the National 
Society upon your consent to serve us. 

(The gentlemen called on did as requested and were greeted with 
applause.) 

The Chair : I am afraid as we all rose up we thought we were vice- 
presidents. (Laughter.) The Chair will now entertain nominations 
for the office of Secretary General, and recognizes Past President Gen- 
eral Elmer Marston Wentworth, of the United States. (Laughter and 
applause.) 

Compatriot Wentworth : Mr. President General and Compatriots, 
those of you who have been regular attendants at the National Con- 
gresses of the Sons of the American Revolution are gathered with 
heavy hearts today. You miss sitting on the platform, at the right of 
the President General, the beloved compatriot who for so many years 
had guided with tender, skilful, statesmanlike spirit the destinies of this 
great Society, and I know that the thought that is uppermost in your 
hearts today was expressed by the poet, 

"Oh, for a touch of the vanished hand, 
And the sound of a voice that is still." 

It is a peculiar situation and a difficult one that we must confront in 
the Sons of the American Revolution to find a man to succeed A. How- 
ard Clark as Secretary General and Registrar General. The members 
of this Congress, long acquainted with the work that has been done, 
had a just right to feel that it was a time when we should do everything 
that could be done to make that name as splendid as we could, and 
your memorials have testified in that respect that we are facing the 
future. Five States had men who were competent and qualified, as did 
every State in our great Society, to carry on the work ; but, at this 
particular time and in respect to the man who is gone, it seemed best 
that we should unite upon one man, and those who were candidates 
for this office from the various States have most kindly withdrawn 
their candidacy as a tribute of respect to the man whose office we are 
about to fill and his successor. I take pleasure in presenting the name 
of Philip F. Lamer, Past President of the District of Columbia 
Society, the friend and comrade of our retired, our lost Secretary 
General and Registrar General, as his successor. (Applause.) 

Admiral Baird, of the District of Columbia Society: I beg to second 
that nomination. The District of Columbia has a number of qualified 
men ; it is the capital of the Nation and has the largest library in the 
country, but, better still, it has the library of the D. A. R., who have a 
splendid genealogical library and a card index there better than any- 
thing I have ever seen, and a lot of charming little women who hand 
out exactly what you want, almost instantaneously. Therefore I think 
the District of Columbia is the proper place for the Secretary General. 
T would not say that Mr. Larner is as qualified as many of our dele- 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 57 

gates are for the office, but he has the faculty of smoothing people the 
right way; he never forgets anything; he is always with us; he has 
been in the business for many years and has a large office, with 
stenographers and typewriters and all that kind of thing; but to say 
anything about him personally I think would be like trying to paint 
the lily. 

The Secretary General : Mr. President General and gentlemen of 
the Convention, when the President General selected me as acting 
Secretary General and the Executive Committee confirmed that nomi- 
nation by electing me, under Paragraph 5 of the Constitution, on the 
31st of last January, at a meeting in Newark, it was with a great deal 
of diffidence that I accepted the nomination, and I have endeavored dur- 
ing the five months that have elapsed, as I told you yesterday, to con- 
duct the office in a way that would suit you and win the approbation of 
the President of the Society and the members of the Executive Com- 
mittee. Today, with the nomination of my friend, my brother, my 
companion, and my Sir Knight, my Past President, Philip F. Earner, 
it gives the Society a name to conjure with, and I want to say to you 
that I take the greatest pleasure in seconding the nomination of Brother 
Larner. (Applause.) 

Compatriot G. Barrett Rich (N. Y.) : On behalf of the Empire State 
Society, it affords me great pleasure to second the nomination of Mr. 
Larner. I believe that in the selection of Mr. Larner the Society 
honors itself. We are very fortunate in the selection of Mr. Larner 
for Registrar General. 

Compatriot Robertson ( Md.) : I rise on behalf of the State of Mary- 
land to second the nomination of our brother from the District of 
Columbia Society. I myself, was a candidate for this office. Readily 
realizing that I could not fill it with the capacity it had been filled 
heretofore. I very gladly withdrew from the contest, and it is a great 
honor to second the nomination of Mr. Larner. 

Compatriot Vail (X. J.) : On behalf of the New Jersey Society, I 
desire to say that we were one of the States that had a candidate for 
Secretary General. We withdrew our candidate in favor of Mr. 
Larner, and I am very much pleased, in behalf of New Jersey, to 
second the nomination of Mr. Larner for Secretary General and 
Registrar General. 

Compatriot Wentworth : I move that the nominations be closed and 
the Secretary General instructed to cast one ballot for the nominee, Com- 
patriot Philip F. Larner, of the District of Columbia Society, for both 
offices. Secretary General and Registrar General. 

(Motion seconded and adopted.) 

The Secretary General: Past President Philip F. Larner. of the 
District of Columbia Society, having received the unanimous vote of 
this Congress, I therefore deposit the ballot for him as Secretary 
General and Registrar General for the ensuing year. 

The Chair : You have heard the vote of your Secretary General and 



158 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

the chair declares Compatriot Philip F. Larner, of the District of 
Columbia Society, elected unanimously Secretary General and Registrar 
General of the National Society, and I will ask Admiral Baird to 
escort our newly elected Secretary General and Registrar General to 
the platform. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Larner: Mr. President General and Compatriots, I must 
confess that I am appearing here somewhat under embarrassment. 
When I came to Detroit a few days ago, it was with the idea that I 
was going to have a good time, free from any trouble or difficulty, such 
as I have always had at the gatherings of this splendid Society every 
year. I certainly had no idea of hunting for an office, and it was a 
far remote thought that an office would hunt for me. Now, I am 
certainly deeply gratified at the splendid action here this morning and 
at your unanimity. I hope I shall be able to comply with your require- 
ments to the full, but I doubt very much if I can come up to that high 
standard which many years of efficient service by my dear old friend, 
Howard Clark, has fixed. I shall try to follow as near as possible his 
paths. I have been a friend of Mr. Clark and his wife for thirty 
years or more, and I hope to have some little advice and a guiding hand 
from her. I think that what there is of the affairs of the National 
Society of the Sons of the American Revolution that she does not 
know is hardly worth knowing by anybody. That has been my obser- 
vation, and I assure you, most heartily, that whatever I may do. 
although there may be errors, it will be the very best that I can give 
you. (Applause.) 

The Chair: The chair will receive nominations for Treasurer Gen- 
eral. 

Compatriot Williams (N. J.) : New Jersey has a very warm spot 
in her heart for the man who has made good in every office that he 
has filled, a man who has faithfully served this organization, a man 
of finance, a man that we all love. It gives New Jersey great pleasure 
to place in nomination for the office of Treasurer General John Bur- 
roughs, President of the New York Chapter. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Guthrie : I move that the nominations close, and that 
the Secretary be instructed to cast the unanimous vote for Compatriot 
Burroughs. I don't think that nomination was seconded and I would 
like to go on record as seconding it. 

The Chair: The nomination of Mr. Burroughs was seconded by 
Connecticut. The motion before the house is, that the Secretary be 
instructed to cast one ballot as the expression of this Congress for 
John H. Burroughs for Treasurer General for his eleventh election. 

(The motion was unanimously adopted.) 

Secretary General Parks : May I delay the Society one minute, to 
say that I appreciate this, because I have done business with that man 
for the past five months, and he answers his letters the day he gets 
them. (Laughter.) 

(The Secretary General then cast the ballot as directed.) 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. 1 59 

The Chair: I am very happy to declare the election of my dear 
friend and predecessor as President of the Empire State Society, John 
H. Burroughs. He is known to all of you, and all you have got to do 
is to rise and make his nomination unanimous. Kindly rise. (The 
audience rose arid applauded.) Mr. Burroughs knows what is in our 
hearts for him ; he has been with us ten years in that one office, and 
I trust that for ten years more he will consent to serve us. (Applause.) 

Treasurer General Burroughs: Mr. President General, this renewed 
honor granted me by the compatriots of the National Society is highly 
appreciated by me. At the time of the Congress held in Baltimore, I 
was honored by your confidence in placing me in the position of Treasurer 
General of the National Society, and as the years have gone by, you 
have increased that honor year after year, and, if I remember cor- 
rectly, this is the eleventh year I have been honored. I appreciate your 
confidence. I feel that the duty is an important one, and you will 
understand that in opposing resolutions calling for expenditure I am 
doing it for your sake and not my own. I want to thank you again 
for my election this the eleventh time. (Applause.) 

The Chair : The chair will entertain nominations for Historian Gen- 
eral. 

Compatriot PundERSON : I nominate Compatriot George C. Arnold. 

Compatriot Smith (Utah) : On behalf of the entire delegation from 
Utah. I take pleasure in seconding the nomination of Mr. Arnold. 
(Applause.) 

A Member: As an individual numbering as many as the whole dele- 
gation from Utah, coming from the Southland, south of Mason and 
Dixon's line, I want to second the nomination of my friend, Lieut. 
George C. Arnold, of Rhode Island, for Historian General. 

Compatriot Weston : I would like to second his nomination in behalf 
of the Louisiana Society, and I would also like, during the coming 
year, for him to look into the history of the Southern colonies during 
the Revolutionary time. Our Massachusetts friends, sometimes, like 
to take the lion's share of patriotism, and I think it is well to look 
into that country a little, too, and I second the nomination. 

A Member: For the Connecticut Society, I second the nomination. 

A Member: The State of Maryland wishes to second the nomination 
of Lieutenant Arnold, and moves that the nominations be closed, and 
that the Secretary be instructed to cast the ballot for Compatriot 
George C. Arnold for Historian General. 

(The motion was adopted and the ballot cast accordingly.) 

Historian General Arnold: I thank you from the bottom of my heart 
for the confidence you have reposed in me, for this the second term of 
my election ; it will be my endeavor as Historian General to so officiate 
that I will recall the Revolutionary doings and be an honor, not only 
to myself, but to my State and the United States of America. (Ap- 
plause.) 

The Chair: The chair will receive nominations for Chaplain General. 



l60 SONS OE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Compatriot Punderson : On behalf of the Massachusetts delegation, I 
have the honor to place in nomination as Chaplain General of the 
National Society Dr. Lee S. McCollester, who has so ably performed 
the duties of the office during the past year. 

A Member: On behalf of the Michigan Society, I second the nomi- 
nation. 

(It was moved and carried that the nominations be closed, and the 
Secretary be instructed to cast the ballot of the Congress for Dr. Lee 
S. McCollester for Chaplain General. The ballot was cast accordingly 
and the result duly announced.) 

The Chair: I will ask Vice-President General Albert M. Henry to 
kindly come forward and preside over the Congress at this time. (Ap- 
plause.) 

(Vice-President General Henry takes the chair.) 

President General Ames : Compatriots, I would be unfair to this Con- 
gress, I would be unjust to myself, if I let this opportunity go by 
without expressing, out of the depths of my heart, gratitude; without 
expressing on your behalf thankfulness for the great service that has 
been rendered to your President General and to the National Society 
of the Sons of the American Revolution by the two gentlemen who 
kindly consented, when asked, to serve in the respective offices of 
Secretary General and Registrar General. The President of the Dis- 
trict of Columbia Society, William S. Parks, has rendered a great 
service to this organization in the past four and one-half months. 
Without receiving any salary, he devoted his time to the great work of 
that office ; and the Registrar of the New York Society, Teunis D. 
Huntting, served in a similar manner as a Registrar General; there- 
fore I move the thanks of the Congress to the retiring Secretary 
General, William S. Parks, and the retiring Registrar General, T. D. 
Huntting. 

(The motion was seconded and adopted by a rising vote.) 

Secretary General Parks : Compatriots, this is worth all the work 
that I have done for you, and I am just as ready now to do as much 
more as I can. Thank you. (Applause.) 

Compatriot Wentworth : Before Compatriot Henry sits down, I 
want you all to look at him. I have been trustee from the State of 
Iowa in this Congress for twelve years; I think I am finishing up ten 
years as a member of the Executive Committee. I have served with 
a great many men ; I have known something about what has been done 
in this Congress, and in the past congresses, on the Boards of Trustees 
and Executive Committee, and Albert M. Henry has had no superior 
in loyalty, executive work, splendid comradeship, and humanity, among 
all of my acquaintance with the comrades of this Society. When we 
are here in Detroit, his home town, where he is not without honor, we 
desire to do him this additional honor. (Applause.) 

The Chair: Compatriots, I thank yon. 
(President General Ames takes the chair.) 



PROCEEDINGS OF DETROIT CONGRESS. l6l 

The Chair: Before turning over the office of President General to 
the newly elected President General, I desire that the Vice-Presidents 
General should have an opportunity to preside over this Congress, and 
it was a closing benediction to have our beloved Vice-President Gen- 
eral Henry to close the last work of the Congress. Before turning 
over the office, however, I would ask those among the compatriots 
present who were here in Detroit twenty years ago to kindly rise. 

(Several members rose.) 

Compatriot Clarke (Va.) : As everybody knows, or ought to know, 
the first settlement was made on this continent at Jmaestown in 1619. 
The Governor called the General Assembly, and this first General 
Assembly met on the American continent in the choir of the church at 
Jamestown in 1619. I just want to announce that that event will be 
celebrated this summer in Virginia. The Legislature of the State has 
appointed a committee, and our Society has appointed a committee to 
join in the celebration of the event. Just what the dates will be I 
do not think is yet settled, but I simply announce the fact of the three 
hundredth anniversary of the first General Assembly of Virginia, 
which will be celebrated this summer, and I would like you all to 
come down. (Applause.) 

The Chair : The next business in order is the election of the Trustees. 
They are nominated by the State Societies, and in the absence of any 
nomination by a State Society the President of the State Society be- 
comes ex officio member of the Board. I will ask the Secretary Gen- 
eral to read the list of Trustees nominated by the State Societies and 
the names of the State Presidents where no nominations have been 
made. 

(The Secretary General read the names.) 

(It was moved and carried that the rules be suspended, and that the 
Secretary General be instructed to cast one ballot for the election of 
the nominees named as Trustees. The ballot was cast accordingly.) 

(The list of Trustees appears on page 4 of present Year Book.) 

The Chair: The Trustees named are elected. It becomes my pleas- 
ant duty, as the retiring Past President of the National Society of the 
Sons of the American Revolution, first, to express to you my deepest 
thanks for all the kindnesses you have shown me while being the in- 
cumbent of this office. Particularly would I thank you for the courtesy 
you have shown me during the time I have presided over this Congress. 
You have made it a pleasure to preside, yesterday and today, and in 
turning over the emblems of this office I first present your newly 
elected President General with the symbol of authority, the gavel of 
this Organization (applause) ; and then it becomes my pleasant duty 
to bestow upon him this added emblem of authority, the gold pendant 
of the President General of the Sons of the American Revolution. I 
turn over to you, sir, everything that I have received as President 
General of the' National Society of the Sons of the American Revolu- 



l62 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

tion, with three exceptions : the esteem, the love, and the kindnesses 
that have come to me at your hands. No power on earth would ever 
permit me to pass them to any one else. (The audience rose and gave 
three cheers for Past President General Ames, while President Gen- 
eral Jenks took the chair.) 

President General Jenks : Past President General Ames, it is a great 
honor to step into the place which you have filled so splendidly. I re- 
ceive this honored insignia with great humbleness, and I want to assure 
you of my earnest desire to wear it worthily. I am advised that my 
only function at this Congress, as presiding officer, is to administer the 
last sad rites. If there is no more business to come before the Con- 
gress, a motion to adjourn without day is in order. 

Before adjournment, telegrams expressing appreciation for the greet- 
ings sent by the Congress, and extending good wishes to all members, 
were received from Past Presidents General W. A. Marble, of New York; 
Francis Henry Appleton, of Peabody, Mass. ; Morris B. Beardsley, of 
Bridgeport, Conn.; Franklin Murphy, of Newark, N. J.; Edwin War- 
field, of Baltimore, Md., and Cornelius A. Pugsley, of Peekskill, N. Y. 

(A rising vote of thanks was given by the Congress to Past Presi- 
dent General Ames.) 

On motion, the Congress then adjourned sine die. 

Phiup F. Larner, 

Secretary General.

MEETINGS OF EXECUTIVE; COMMITTEE. 167 

MINUTES OF MEETING OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, NA- 
TIONAL SOCIETY, SONS OF THE AMERICAN 
REVOLUTION, HELD OCTOBER 25, 1919, 
AT NEW YORK CITY. 

A meeting of the Executive Committee of the National Society was 
held at the Hardware Club, New York city, at 10 a. m., October 25, 1919. 

President General Jenks presided, with the following members of the 
Committee in attendance : George E. Pomeroy, John Milton Reif snider, 
Lewis B. Curtis, E. M. Wentworth, and Louis A. Ames. There were 
also in attendance Vice-Presidents General Thomas W. Williams, of 
New Jersey, and George F. Burgess, of Connecticut; also Past Presi- 
dents General C. A. Pugsley, M. B. Beardsley, and William A. Marble; 
also Treasurer General John H. Burroughs, President C. M. Vail, of 
New Jersey State Society; Dr. G. C. F. Williams, President of the 
Connecticut State Society; Mr. George D. Banks, Second Vice-Presi- 
dent of the Empire State Society, and Secretary General Philip F. 
Lamer. 

The minutes of the meeting of the Executive Committee held May 
21, 1919, at Detroit, Mich., were read and approved. 

The Secretary General made to the committee a general report on 
the business and condition of the affairs of the Society, stating that the 
work of his office was in good shape and practically up to date in every 
respect. Various matters of detail were discussed by the members of 
the committee, among which was the very general increase in cost to 
the Society for printed matter, which would render it necessary to 
make new schedule of prices to the State Societies for various items 
of supplies furnished to them. The committee ordered that all such 
matters should be referred to the President and Secretary General 
with power to act. It being understood that especially in the matter 
of furnishing application blanks the State Societies should be charged 
therefor the exact cost to the National Society. 

The Secretary General reported upon the removal of the official 
headquarters to a new location, and stated that while a second change 
had been made for a larger room in the same building, the office was 
still greatly crowded, and that it had become evident that additional 
space would very soon be needed for necessary file cases and other 
furniture required to accommodate the increasing records of the So- 
ciety. The matter received the careful attention of the committee and 
it was unanimously decided to refer this entire matter for decision to 
the President and Secretary General with power to act, it being under- 
stood that the President General expected to visit Washington in a 
few days. 

The attention of the committee was called to the fact that at the 
meeting of the Executive Committee held on December 12, 1918, it was 
voted that a committee should be appointed to secure bronze memorial 
medals or badges for members, sons of members, and families of de- 
ceased members who have served in the late World War, the State 



l68 SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Society to pay the cost of the badges and the presentation to be made 
with some formality in the presence of a National Society Officer. 
Some confusion had arisen in several instances caused by the require- 
ment that the medals must be presented "with some formality, in the 
presence of a National Society Officer," the presence of a National 
Society Officer not being convenient in many cases and the State 
Society not always being able to secure the presence of those entitled 
to receive the medals. 

The matter was fully considered and discussed by the committee, 
and it was ordered that the previous action be modified, so that the 
medals could be conferred with such ceremony as may be most con- 
venient in each instance, preference being given to presentation by a 
National Officer if available, or otherwise by a State officer. 

The attention of the committee was called to the proposed amend- 
ment submitted by the Empire State Society and published in the 
October, 1919, Bulletin. It was understood that the constitutional 
requirement that notice of amendments should be sent to the Presidents 
of the State Societies would be complied with if a marked copy of the 
page from the October Bulletin should be forwarded to them. 

The committee was also informed that an application had been made 
for one or more of the Grave Markers heretofore proposed by the 
National Society, and upon which subject Past President General Wood- 
worth, as chairman of a Special Committee on the subject, had sub- 
mitted a report at the Rochester Congress in 1918. No progress having 
been made in the manufacture of the markers, the Secretary General 
was requested to communicate with Chairman Woodworth, of the Com- 
mittee on Markers, and ascertain from him the name of the manu- 
facturer who had offered to make the markers, and hereafter to refer 
all applicants for such to the manufacturer direct, sending a proper 
authorization to the manufacturer, he to be informed that such markers 
could be made only on an order from the Secretary General. 

The committee considered for action the question referred to it by 
the Detroit Congress, covering the permanent gift of the banners as 
presented by Past President General Ames to certain State Societies at 
the last Congress. A motion had been submitted that a banner be 
given by the National Society to each State increasing its membership 
20 per cent during the year, such increase to be at least ten members, 
and the expense of such banner to be defrayed by the Treasurer of 
the National Organization. As this subject was referred to the Ex- 
ecutive Committee with power to act, the matter was given very full 
and careful consideration. In view of the very great expense involved, 
it was unanimously decided to lay the subject on the table. 

A letter was submitted from Compatriot T. D. Huntting, chairman 
of the Credentials Committee, requesting a definition of "members in 
good standing." Under the Constitution of the National Society, the 
committee decided that the question was fully covered by Article VI of 
the Constitution, to be found on page 34 of the 1918 Year Book. 



MEETINGS OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. 169 

Mr. Ames submitted a verbal report on the Observance of Constitu- 
tion Day, September 17, 1919, as chairman of the committee having 
that matter in charge. It was shown that many thousands of meetings 
were held throughout the country in the observance of the day and 
under the influence of the National Society Committee. The report 
was adopted. 

On motion of Mr. Curtis, and at his invitation, it was decided that 
the usual meeting of the Executive Committee preceding the next 
Congress, to be convened at Hartford, Conn., should be held at his 
house, in Bridgeport, Conn., on the Saturday in May, 1920, before the 
meeting of the Congress, the committee then to motor to Hartford. 

Mr. Ames submitted for the consideration of the committee a motion 
providing for the observance of what shall be known as Victory Day, 
as follows : 

Whereas the winning of the World War was a triumph of right 
over might, liberty over bondage, justice over injustice, equality over 
partialism ; 

Resolved, That we ask the American people to observe November 
nth as Victory Day, not merely a victory of one group of nations over 
another, but a triumph of those principles of liberty, justice, honor, and 
equality which are the foundation stones of this Republic. 

The motion was unanimously adopted. 

The matter of making a charge for the filing and registration of 
supplemental blanks sufficient to cover in a measure the expense of 
labor and all printing was considered by the committee, and on motion 
it was decided that a fee of $1 should be charged for filing and regis- 
tering a supplemental blank at any time. 

President General Jenks reported, as a matter of record, that an 
invitation from the Connecticut State Society to hold the next Congress 
in May, 1920, in the city of Hartford, was presented to him in June 
and submitted by wire vote to the individual members of the Execu- 
tive Committee and unanimously accepted. 

Treasurer General Burroughs submitted a statement of the financial 
affairs of the National Society under date of October 22, 1919, by which 
it was shown that the balance on hand May 22, 1919, was $8,781.83. 
Total receipts since that date, $1,019.84; total disbursements, $3,131.86; 
balance on hand October 22, 1919, $6,669.81. The report was accepted 
and adopted. 

Mr. Curtis, from the Committee on Increase in Membership, sub- 
mitted a verbal report, which was discussed at considerable length, 
and on motion the committee was discharged from further service. 

It was voted that the Secretary General should send to Past Presi- 
dent General Edwin S. Greeley, now ill at his home in New Haven, 
Conn., the greeting of the Executive Committee and a warm expression 
of its regard and well wishes for him and his immediate recovery to 
good health and strength, and at the same time advising him that five 
ex-Presidents General now present united in this greeting. 



I70 SONS OF THF AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

Mr. Pomeroy submitted and read a report covering the recommen- 
dations of the committee appointed for the establishment of a National 
Committee of Patriotic Societies and a National Patriotic Society 
week throughout the United States, the committee being composed of 
R. Morgan Galbreth, Walter K. Tuller, and Pierce W. Banning. Upon 
full consideration of the matter, the report was referred to President 
General Jenks and Mr. Pomeroy for further consideration and report. 

In view of the presence in this country of King Albert of the Bel- 
gians and the high regard in which he is held by members of the Ex- 
ecutive Committee and the Society in general, it was voted unanimously 
that the greetings of the committee and the Society should be sent to 
King Albert by the President General as speedily as possible. 

The committee discussed various matters of interest to the Society 
without particular action, and thereupon adjourned. 

Philip F. Larner, 

Secretary General. 

SOCIAL FUNCTIONS INCIDENT TO THE MEETING OF THE 
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. 

The meeting of the Executive Committee was suspended during its 
session to accept the very cordial invitation of the President General 
to luncheon in the adjoining room as his guests. During the luncheon 
those present were entertained by remarks of interest from President 
General Jenks and others present, among whom were Past President 
General Beardsley, of Connecticut. 

Invitations were extended to this luncheon to all Past Presidents 
General now living, and those not present sent in notes of regret be- 
cause of ill health. 

On the same evening the President General and : Mrs. Jenks were 
entertained by the New Jersey State Society at a reception held at the 
Woman's Club in Orange, N. J., at which a very large number of

were accompanied to this reception by Past President General Ames 
and Mrs. Ames, Vice-President General Williams, of New Jersey; Vice- 
President General Burgess, of Connecticut; Hon. John Milton Reif- 
snider, of the National Executive Committee, and Secretary General 
Larner.
