K. of P.. and D. O. K. K. News
The force of the influenza has been so
strong in Badin, as elsewhere thruout
the country, as to cause us to suspend
for some weeks all Lodge meetings.
Therefore we have very little to report
in the way of activities.
As the situation has since cleared up
to a very considerable extent, and we
begin to feel that we are about getting
out of the woods, we are again getting
busy in mind, if not in action, and hope
to have soon an opportunity to resume
our meetings and otherwise be m a
better position to carry on the busmess
of our Order.
On Thursday, the twenty-sixth of
November, Suez Temple, No. 73, of the
D 0 K. K., held a ceremonial at Char
lotte,' to’ which thirty or more of our
number went. About three hundred m
all were present. Our Charlotte broth
ers did all in their power to give us a
royal good time; and that they were suc
cessful in so doing we are each and all
ready to testify. After the trip from
Badin, which was made by auto to Char
lotte with more or less mishap, we
reached the “Queen City of the Caro-
linas” about three p. m. After registering
at headquarters, we were taken m charge
bv the reception committee, and a gioup
.".mbW in fr.n. .« th. Meckl.n-
Trg County Courthouse. A brave
photo man exercised his camera on us
At this writing, we have not seen a proof
^^ the result; but we feel sure it must
be a wonderful view-considering the
background-of collective beauty. After
this picture was taken, we were loaded
Lto autos, and taken out to Camp
Greene and elsewhere to see the sights,
which were greatly mterestmg to al .
Ifter a ride thru the Camp and beauti
ful Myers Park and Dilworth, we landed
at the Presbyterian Hospital, and ther
saw the rooms which have been fitted
up at the expense of the Knights of
Pythias and other Orders. These
rooms looked fine, and the spirit which
prompted this action on the part of our
Order and the other Orders seemed to
accord so well with the true spirit of
brotherhood and love that it did us all
good to know of this, and to see it being
exercised in such a practical manner.
Dr. R. B. Alexander, who has charge of
this hospital, did much to show us all
there was to see; and it gave us much
pleasure to extend our thanks to him.
The manner in which the “Greater
Charlotte spirit” has exercised itself
during the last ten or fifteen years is
plain to see. Charlotte haa within this
length of time developed from a slow,
easy-going town to a busy, progressive,
and attractive city of- beautiful homes.
The “home spirit” seems to be upper
most, and this in itself is much to ad
Mayor McNinch, who himself is a
D. 0. K. K., attended the ceremonial, and
also made a short talk, in which he
“turned over the keys of the city to us.”
We were made to feel welcome, and
enjoyed ourselves to the utmost. May
our Charlotte brothers live long and

Maryville Town Manager Here
We were glad to have with us, in De
cember, Mr. P. W. Moore, the Town
Manager of the Maryville Plant. Mr.
Moore came to study our Welfare Work
in Badin, preliminary to establishing a
similar department at Maryville. He
proved to be a man of unique and genial
personality, and a delightful visitor.
Come again, Mr. Moore!
