Grantl Patriarch Coombs reported that theio are at present in the State ,T, en campments with u membership of I.5.M. Contenting the Interest shown In the work, the grand patriarch said: "I relieve the greatest evil that confronts our branch of the order to-day is tho lack of .ndividual interest and I am orry t say that the officers in charge of the var ious encampments are. tn a very large degree, responsible for this state or i Hairs. When a chief patriarch ant! otl.er oftlcors s.bsent themselves one-third or one-half of the meetings in the year, wo cannot expect the rank and tile to be very enthusiastic and I do not be lieve such olliiers -hould be promoted and I do not believe a P. c. p. unci, r those conditions should n tve the grand encampment degree. "Another evil 1 llnd is lack of prompt ness in opining ihe met tigs al the slatotl hout and lack of dignity uhile thc meetings arc in session. If we are to attract too attent on of our subordinate brother wo must maintain such tl.gnit.v as U'cftmes a patriarch. Fnless the grand body taki.s steps it, remedy those condi tions we must drift along in the same old rut." He rcrommondf d several changes in the constitution, one of which provides for the raising of the mm mum admission foe from J", to Jin. GAIN OP M HI RING THK VF.AR. Charles W.
