LEWIS 503 Pacific Block Ell. 8573 The B'nai B'rith has lived up to its traditional policy in giving swift and liberal financial aid in every great emergency. When news of the tor- nado catastrophe came to President Kraus, then in Florida, he immediate- ly got into telegraphic communica- tion with every member of the Ex- ecutive Committee, with the result that before the end of the day, it was unanimously voted to contribute $10,000 to the American Red Cross for emergency relief, out of the emer- gency fund. The B'nai B'rith contributed more promptly and more liberally in this instance than any of the other Am- erican fraternal organizations. Members of the B'nai B'rith will remember with a glow of pride that the Jewish National Library, now part of the Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus, officially opened on April 1, was founded by Jerusalem Lodge of the Order in 1892. Under the management of Jerusalem Lodge, the library acquired a collection of 32,000 volumes at the out break of the World War. In 1922 the library was turned over to the Zionist Organiza- tion, where it forms part of the Uni- versity Library of 90,000 volumes. This collection of books is still ac- commodated in the building of the Lodge and is administered by a com- mittee of representatives of the Zion- ist Organization and of the B'nai B'rith. When the National and University Library eventually ac- quire their own building, part of the books will remain in the lodge build- ing, which will function as a city library. In order to ascertain how much was made on the concert for the benefit of the war orphants adopted by Se- attle Lodge, those members who attended the concert, and also those who received tickets will olease send in their cheeks at once. Do it now. Watch for the date of the B'nai B'rith Picnic at Fortuna Park. If you don't want to come on the boat you can drive around the lake but we want to see you there. Owing to Pesach falling on our meeting night, the meeting of April 15 has been postponed. Bro. President Rickles will announce the date of the special meeting in the next issue of The Transcrip. Be sure and call the Secretary's Office, Eliot 8573 if you hear of a brother who is sick or in distress. Don't blame the organization if the President or Secretary is not notified. Don't forget the vohmtary sub- scription of 50 cents per ye'tr for the Transcript when you send in your check for dues. Y(m are saving $1.5'; Fer year. "B. B. SHOTS" No time for Shots this week, or Trip Around the World with Rob- bins, or Convention in 1926, etc. Only got time for new members, and more members. We want the 1,000 strong; get busy and then we'll all be happy. Yours for 1,000 members. "MEMBERSHIP" This issue is being devoted to the membership committee. It has long been the cherished hope of Seattle Lodge to reach the 1,000 mark. Time and time again have we been promised by various members that we would be in the charmed com- pany of 1,000, but never have we real- ized that dream. This is the first time in the history of Seattle Lodge that we really can reach this goal. Chairman Sol Esfeld and Vice- Chairman Samuel Asia have out- lined a complete plan of action. No fraternal organization in our city can boast of any more capable men than either. With a little coopera- tion of the membership Seattle Lodge can pass the 1,000 mark without much difficulty. The effort is worth while and any member who has the interest of the lodge :it heart sh(mld do his bit. Get a member, if you (.tHl't get a nlcl-JQber ge( a lU'Osl)ect. it' you (':m't get a ln'()spect at least bo)st your lodge. It is your du!v te help your committee is muoh" as possible. Yours for 1,000 rnenlbers. MEN'S CLUB MEETING The first annual meeting of ,the Men's Club Temple De Hirsch will be heht Monday, 6:30, April 13th, Temple Center.

Worthy Brethren: April 3, 1925 It has long been the ambition of Seattle Lodge to boast a membership of 1,000. With your help this ambition can now be realized. Wr have a total of 830 members; only 170 short of our goal. We shall endeavor to take in this number during our next membership drive to be held April 22 to May 6. We are particularly anxious to reach this goal, as it will help our delegates to obtain recognition from the Grand Lodge in choosing Seattle for the District Convention in 1926. This drive is being held in honor of all past presidents of Seattle Lodge, which number about 30, and whose pictures are reproduced above. How much do you ap- preciate your president? Has he earned your support and cooperation, and are you willing to make a little effort to prove that he has? The most important factor in the membership campaign is to obtain a good list of prospects. This is where you can help. All we ask you to do is to fill in the names of several of your friends or relat.ives who are not members of the lodge. This will take but a few minutes of your time and costs you nothing. The enclosed card is addressed and stamped, ready for mailing. If each member will send in this card filled out, the success of our drive will be assured. Your past presidents and your lodge are entitled to this much support from you. Please fill in the card and mail it now, so that the committee can get started at once. Cordially yours, MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE, Sol Esfeld, Chairman. "EVERY MEMBER GET A MEMBER"--"MAKE IT 1,000" Samuel Ostrow Julius Rickles Herbert Schofeld Here You Are! A full coverage policy in one.
