Francis DeSart, C. E. Bryant and R. J. McEwen. Grand Master Speaks Principal feature of the state- j wide meetings was an address pre- ] pared for radio delivery by Grand , Master Realff Ottesen which was : received in various lodges. In his address Ottesen read a "Statement of Principles" of the Masonic order. "Many rules of human conduct which our brotherhood has always proclaimed as fundamental," he said, "are being repudiated in various parts of what we have always called the Christian world. "Our brethren everywhere find themselves strangely disturbed by this apparent retrogression in humanity's eternal struggle from darkness to light. They cannot · understand the attacks that are hurled against free-Masonry from various quarters. "Contrary to Principles'' '·This situation has become so intense in some parts of our own country that many Masonic leaders feel the time has come when we should make public declaration of our fundamental principles." One of the princlnles outlined by Ottesen declared that "It is not only contrary to the fundamental principles of free-Masonry, but dangerous to its unity, strength, usefulness and welfare for Masonic bodies to take action or attempt to exercise pressure or influence for or against any legisla- · tion, or in any attempt to procure the election or appointment of governmental officials, or to influence them, whether or not members of the fraternity, in the performance of their official duties."
