"An armistice has been signed in the great world war, peace treaties have been or are being prepared . . . But no one who looks about . . .can fail to recognize that we are in the midst of warfare perhaps as deadly and destructive as the war just ended. Never before in our own country have the forces of ignorance, selfishness, and brutality been more openly assertive than today. The foundations of civilization itself seem to be threatened as never before. . . I earnestly believe that Masonry must drop some of its ages-long conservatism and become a more practical and active agency in the settlement of the problem that now so vitally concerns not only the life of our nation, but the happiness and welfare of all people."

("These are days of trial - true testing for Freemasons. Atheism, communism, socialism, anarchy, greed, selfishness, ignorance, class hatred, false gods, license in the name of liberty, binding and blinding autocracy parading in the name of democracy . . . Every principle of Masonry, every virtue sacred to the heart and soul of our Fellowship is being held up to execration and singled out for assault and destruction. . . Every true Craftsman worthy to bear the name of Mason has enlisted and pledged the last ounce of his strength to defend the precious heritage of free institutions and American ideals.")
