Dean of Students early 1950s. Introduce speech clubs into Ambassador College first called Ambassador Club.

This is the final installment in this intriguing, eye-opening series. Here is what our Church members should do if they have been Masons. FREEMASONRY is living proof that no teaching of man, regardless of how innocent or righteous appearing, can be taken for granted - that no teaching can be assumed good, just because it looks good - that no teaching can be assumed righteous, no matter how solemnly it declares itself so - or judged honorable because its own cherished records suggest honor. In many ways Masonry is the exact opposite of what it claims to be! Masonic Claims: To its initiates the Masonic Lodge teaches: "Masonry is useful to all men: to the learned, because it affords them the opportunity of exercising their talents upon subjects eminently worthy of their attention; to the illiterate, because it offers them important instruction; to the young, because it presents them with salutary precepts and good examples, and accustoms them to reflect on the proper mode of living; to the man of the world, whom it furnishes with noble and useful recreation; to the traveller, whom it enables to find friends and brothers in countries where else he would be isolated and solitary; to the worthy man in misfortune, to whom it gives assistance; to the afflicted, on whom it lavishes consolation; to the charitable man, whom it enables to do more good, by uniting with those who are charitable like himself; and to all who have souls capable of appreciating its importance, and of enjoying the charms of a friendship founded on the same principles of religion, morality, and philanthropy" (Morals and Dogma, p. 113).
