MASONS DISCUSS IDEA
OF BEING BIG BROTHERS
Spokane, Wash.. Jun IT. Member
Of the. Masonic order throughout the
state are discussing the suggestion by
Jeremiah Neterer of Bellingham, In
hi annual address as grand maater at
the recent fifty-fourth session of th
grand lodge of Washington In Spokane,
that each Maaon attract the confidence
Of a boy and guide him In ways of
right It is expected that most of the
175 lodges In the state, with K.600
member enrolled, will adopt the plan
before the year ia ended.
"I believe that If uch tnovement
were- launched by the Maaona In thl
Jurisdiction," Judge Neterer said, "In
tea, would be th Interest and great
'would be the - result and pleasure In
such Constructive work la, real charac
ter building. . ,
, There exist a necessity for whole
some' Influence and fraternal coopera
tion In behalf of boys. The course of
conduct and treatment of many boy
at home and by th public should be
changed. Worthy example should b
presented and wholesome sentiment cre
ated. ... You - can initiate-a plan which
will properly direct and oonaerve the
energy and ambition of the boy.
"The highest authorities are agreed
that nothing In the. world go shapes a
boy's soul and character aa quiet talk
with grown men about thlAgs they live
for and amidst.' In this way the boy
Is aroused to think and do the very best
there is In him.
"Make a companion of some boy, be
a big brother to him and have him visit
you; go to his home after the labor of
the day has-cloned and. .show him he
is a part of the world and that some one
Is Interested In his welfare; direct his
mind in a wholesome course, place de
signs for his Improvement upon the
trestle-board of life; and thus "bring
hi acts within the extended points of
the compass and yourself nearer the
throne of th eternal God."
