Members of the head camp law com
mittee of the Modern Woodmen in
their report to the coming head camp
have suggested a way to avoid the
taxing of the society's funds becoming
a burden upon the membership in
general. They offer an amendment
to the society's by-laws which provide
that If any state in which the society
Is doing business 'requires the pay
ment of any sum as a tax on the re
ceipts or funds of the society, a spe
cial assessment for the amount of this
tax shall be levied against the mem
bers In the state In which the tax la
levied. In the case of Illinois, the tax
would be $300,0000 and as there are
150,000 members in Illinois, the as
sessment would be 12 a member each
Just whether or not the Illinois
members would submit to this extra
tax Is a question.
