FRATERNITY ' * United Benevolent Association twelve years ago and have thus far proven en- tirely adequate. Philadelphia have formed a union. Wel- come to our ranks. If you appreciate anything a friend or employe is doing for you, tell him so. Don't wait until he is dead to place a few withered flowers on his tomb. They can bring no joy to the cold clay that sleeps beneath, when a word of appre- ciation will often not only win you an answering smile, but spur the recipient on to renewed effort. Remember Sweet Sixteen That was four years ago Now write Nineteen sixteen And watch the U. B. A. Grow. Too many dead lodges in the order. We would suggest that the officers of such lodges get a move on, start some- thing, revive interest, be determined to build up. Don't let it be said that your lodge is a dead one. We want to class you among the live wires. Help the order that is doing so much for hu- manity; do your share; make an honest effort; hold a meeting occasionally. If the officers ...

6 FRATERNITY ATTRACTIONS VS. ENDOWMENT fraternal order, but a fraternal order is INSURANCE. By N. J. Wade. Life insurance is obtainable from two sources only, benefit societies and old line companies. The contract of the former is called a certificate, that of the latter, a policy. A policy may be an endowment, that is payable to the in- sured, if living, at the end of a named period, regardless of the beneficiary. But a certificate can be paid only to the beneficiary, after the death of the in- sured, and never before. A policy may contain any and all at- tractions which ingenuity can contrive and money buy; but the attractions in a certificate are restricted to legislative grant. A certificate is sometimes loosely called a policy, but the distinction must remain until the two contracts are placed upon the same footing by law. The tendency of legislation and judicial decisions are rapidly eradicating this abhorrent chasm, limiting the activities of benefit societies; which are reac...

FRATERNITY the matter but little more thought than if buying a sack of tobacco. This is be- cause practically all societies and com- panies are safe, and the prospective patron proceeds in all cases upon this theory. He is wholly concerned in the second question, and it is he and not his beneficiary that is making the con- tract. He wants to know what HE, the insured, is going to get, either during life or at death, exclusive of his bene- ficiary. He discriminates sharply be- tween himself and his beneficiary. Men may have argued with a solicitor the abstract question whether or not to in- sure, twenty-five years ago. But they do not do that now. A solicitor knows the line of reasoning he has got to meet. He gets his man every time, not by showing him what he can give (he kilows that already), but by showing him what the insurer will give HIM. Endowment (or term) insurance is just as benevolent, and as much benevo- lence as whole life insurance. We must cut loose from antedeluvian n...

8 FRATERNITY A traveling carriage is seen upon the brow of a neighboring hill; the horses seem fagging, but the driver urges them onward both with entreaties and the more forcible argument, the whip. The occupants of the carriage, two College youths, they appear to be, take no notice of the grand September sun- set. But few words are spoken, except to entreat the driver to urge his tired and jaded beasts still faster. "Well we never get there, brother Tom?" at length exclaimed the younger. "Be patient, Harry." And as he speaks the elder brother places his hand tenderly upon the boy's shoulder. What a contrast between the two! The younger is the same brown-haired, hazel-eyed boy we saw at his grand- mother's knee ten years ago, only grown taller and looking quite like a student, with an earnest light in his bright eyes. The other is taller by several inches than his brother, one can see, even while they are seated. Short, wavy curls of a purple black cluster round a finely formed hea...

ORGAN OF THE ORDER* FORT WORTH, TEXAS, FEBRUARY, 1916 ImpoBiibU" Number 2 PREMIUMS PAID PROMPTLY PROCURED PAST PARTICIPANTS $869,041.60 THE LODGE SYSTEM VS. THE CO-OPERATIVE SYSTEM. By N. J. Wade. This subject outweighs all others. The others derive whatever importance they possess, be it much or little, by reason of their co-relation to this sub- ject. The lodge system is generally and badly misunderstood. Due in great " measure to the surprising apathy of fra- ternal publications. One is led to believe that the publications themselves do not understand the lodge system. When fishes have learned to swim without water, and potato patches are called vineyards, then, and not till then will we have benefit societies without lodge sys- tems. The efforts of some good but misguided people to substitute the lodge system is like the Indian who fed saw- dust instead of bran to his horse—as soon as he learned to eat it the critter died. The lodge sy...

FRATERNITY systems should get an example and a lesson of encouragement. By the term club life is meant every form of social intercourse except that of the fraternal lodge. The effect on the lodge system is the same. The public invites the lodge system the same is it invites the club system. The trouble lies at the doors of the societies them- selves. Their commissaries are too often a sack of sawdust and their arsenal a flintlock blunderbus. They are too prone to make figures. When they in- ventory themselves they use an adding machine to the exclusion of everything else. In case of an argument (which they usually invite) they use a dollar- mark for a breastwork. Dollar marks and adding machines are essential, but they are clerk's tools. The societies too often fall into the same error as the man who thinks that the rules of domestic felicity are found between the covers of a bank pass-book. When a society tries to qualify in con- duct and reputation as an old line com- pany, it onl...

FRATERNITY « the magnitude and magnificence of which, like the mansion, is the frater- nalist's best vindication. ' At the shrine of the lodge system of the future, we may expect to find the trophies of endowment insurance, whole family protection, federal as well as state supervision and other concessions in ad- dition to those already obtained, not the least of which by any means is the Monument feature, now provided for in many states by law. Co-operative insurance is not bad, but it appeals only to the sordid side of na- ture and its sole argument is duty. Fraternal insurance is emotional as well as sensual. Its seat is in the heart. Hence it "weeps with those who weep, and rejoices with those who repoice." It is not wholly prospective but is remi- niscent as well. It cherishes the past and dotes on mementoes. While it rec- ognizes its obligations it puts service above all things. It does not wait to be awakened but its watchfires keep death- less vigil. It has an altar as well ...

FRATERNITY % 4 # m Our prediction all along has been to "Watch The U. B. A. Grow." Now we can say we told you so. Our prediction has come true. A handsome increase has been added to our membership dur- ing 1915. Now let us not stop at that, but let us all pull together, and boost the Order during 1916; then Watch the U. B. A. Grow, and Grow. Buy-It-Made-In-Texas also applies to your Insurance, which should be a Cer- tificate in the U. B. A. because the U. B. A. enjoys the distinction—namely, that it was the first Fraternal Lie Insur- ance Order granted a charter by the State. Every subordinate lodge should hold regular meetings once in a while. Bring put the-members and create enthusiasm. Let the members know that they belong to a grand fraternity. Let them know that their Certificates.protect not only their dependent ones, but the loved ones of other members, etc. "But just as long as you keep still And plod your selfish way, And I rush on and heedless kill The kind words I could s...

FRATERNITY wish to go home as I had not yet thought up a good plan for the Govern- ment to follow. I did not wish to desert the Government in its hour of trouble. I was sitting there turning the plan over and over in my mind when I heard a deep, guttural cough just on the other side of the partition. I gave this only passing heer, as I had not yet settled the Mexican trouble to my entire satis- faction. Again I heard the same cough, but still I did not wish to drop the subject, although one of my feet was fast asleep. Again came the same disagreeable cough followed by a step, but still I thought nothing of this and continued my plans for a better, greater United States where we could all go to the theater every night and have ice cream twice a day and that I was expecting a raise in salary. Just as I had finished telling her that' she was the only woman who had ever understood me, I heard a door creak on its hinge and in a mo- ment I felt a strange hand on my coat collar. There were...

FRATERNITY MORB PLAUSIBLE. A young and enterprising Kansas lawyer was trying one of his first cases, relates a writer in the Kansas City Journal. He desired to illustrate his contention by means of hypothesis, and began: "We will suppose, your honor, that your honor were to steal a horse—" "No, no, no!" interrupted the judge. "Not at all, not at all, sir. Not a sup- posable case, sir." "Very well, begging your honor's par- don," said the eager lawyer, with more zeal than prudence; "very well, then, supposing that I should steal a horse—" "Ah—, yes, yes," said the judge, "that is a very different thing; very different, Mr. X. Proceed, sir." Shut the Door. Some time since a peevish looking citizen was seated in a cafe when a man entered, leaving the door wide open. Instantly the peevish party be- came violently agitated. "Shut the door, you chump!" he loudly exclaimed. "Where were you raised—in a barn?" The other quietly closed the door, and then, taking a seat at a nearby table, he b...

By N. J. Wade. The "Lodge Reporter" from Green- ville in last issue of "Fraternity" says: "I am opposed to all schemes, or changes that will make any more lia- bility, or that looks to the shaving of the certificate. All these fancy fads that promise these catchpenny and extra things must be paid for. * * * Where we lose one by not having these fancy promises we will gain two who are looking for what they pay for and no more." The second largest benefit society in existence has both the Monument Fea- ture and the scaled certificate.

9 FRATERNITY the individual member in the way of en- dowments or attractions, for the reason that it is better able to provide them. Furthermore, if it fails in this service, unconsciously, yet surely it loses its hold on its best risks who tire of paying the high premium rate without sufficient attractions and eventually lapse. Thus the magnetic table of rates, so well calculated to preserve the order, may become a serious barrier to prog- ress, unless, along with the table and as a part of the order's contract, endow- ment features or attractions as. they may be called, such as is the Monument Feature," are wisely provided. It is these features which give indi- viduality and distinctiveness to the order. In other respects all contracts are the same regardless of their authen- ticity; so that our members might go to a hundred . other sources besides our order for insurance alone, which, like a pocket handkerchief, has its price in every store in town. Our discussion must be kept ab...

FRATERNITY JUDGE GEO. W. RIDDLE, OF DALLAS, TEXAS, Candidate for U. S. Senator. Judge Riddle, being a prominent light among Fraternalists and a staunch mem- ber of Champion Lodge No. 214, United Benevolent Association, is a native of Texas, and naturally believes in his home State, is a strong advocate of Home In- dustry, and all things being equal he is a booster for Buy-It-Made-in-Texas. To Fraternity: "Helping each other should be upper- most in the minds of every Fraternalist. Life in its highest and best sense is nothing more than learning how to know each other better, and how to work to- gether and help each other, and how to be interested in others, as well as our- selves; and the more nearly we can ap- proach these standards, the better we are prepared to enact laws by which others are to be governed." . "The best philosophy that I can find in life, a philosophy that you can live by and die by, is to advocate measures in the civic, in the mo£al°and in the gov? ernment relat...

FRATERNITY • • f e • own business that you can not help your neighbors in those things that benefit the community. Life is too short for selfishness or self-conceit. It takes courage to do that which is unpopular, but which one feels is right. Courage is a great asset in citizenship because it impels us to do right for right's sake and not because it pleases some one else. You should not fail to read the Re- joinder to the U. B. A. Monument Fea- ture by N. J. Wade, which appears else- where in this issue. If you are interest- ed, you should read and be prepared when the question comes up for action. Our Lodge Rooster is crowing from the top of his voice. Just look for him in another column. He is informing you that the U. B. A. has made its annual report, and received its permit to do business in Texas for the year ending March 31, 1917. It is time for the members of the U .B. A. to discuss the plan and feasi- bility of Whole Family Protection. The Supreme Lodge, which meets in Gree...

6 FRATERNITY OUR ANNUAL DIPLOMA. By N. J. Wade. You-Be-a I- Ouf Lodge Rooster is on. He is an- nouncing receipt of our last permit from the Insurance Commissioner to do busi- ness as a domestic fraternal beneficiary association in Texas. This fraternal chanticleer is inviting you to read it in the adjoining double column, as he him- self evidently has done with much sat- isfaction. Hence his triumphant crow. We have had the blessing of state supervision for only a few years. An- nual reports, required by law, are on file as official records in the state depart- ment of insurance, giving for public in- spection detailed sworn information of the general status and business standing of our institution. Upon these reports our permits are based. To prepare this annual report has re- quired the concentrated energies of the entire force in the Supreme office many days. The task was laborious. The ob- ject inspiring. We have crossed the Rubicon, as we always do. The You- be-a has satisfied ...

FRATERNITY gers in the stuffy carriages." Good ven- tilatino of living rooms and sleeping apartments, as free of dust as possible, is one of the best preventative measures. Patients for their own good, as well as others, should remain in bed during the stage of fever. It is impossible to isolate them. The public is not suffici- ently educated in regard to influenze to tolerate such aggressive measures as quarantine. Yet, without contact, you will not fall a victim. The next best thing is to avoid theaters, mass meet- ings, closed and crowded cars and close contact with their fellow-man, and es- pecially those with catarrhal symptoms. It is worth while, to isolate the first case in a household that the remaining mem- bers may not have it. Let them have an individual glass for water and other utensils, separate towels. Destruction of all secretions coming from patient. Avoiding all close contact with the patient. Instructing other members of the family to practice personal hygiene, wa...

s«<2 FRATERNITY WHOLE FAMILY PROTECTION. (From the Fraternal Monitor) The increased attention given whole family protection is evidenced in the journals of the various societies. Some have given over a portion of their pub- lications to the interests of this depart- ment and are endeavoring in every pos- sible manner to assist in the develop- ment. It. is a mater which well deserves the attention given. The movement will be responsible for renewed activity in fraternalism. The efforts made in its behalf must be continued and must ad- mit of no defeat. The proposals fur- thering its development should not be allowed to abate because of any tempo- rary setback. In Illinois a measure opening this field to fraternal societies proceeded no further than the commit- tee. The practical value of whole family protection cannot be denied. It was ap- parent to th£ members of the legislature of New York. Out of considerably over two hundred and fifty members, only five were opposed to its ado...
