Allen RickIes, member of the General Committee of District Grand Lodge No. 4, was most fittingly lauded by members of Port!and Lodge atits last meeting, which the writer attended. Hailing Brother Rickles as "The Father of the Conference Idea," A. Rosenstein, veteran Ben B'rith and one of the most influential Jewish leaders in Portland, declared at this meeting that while the Northwest Conference recently held in Van- COUver, B. C. was not in a position to legislate, nevertheless an inesti- rouble amount of good was accom- plished in cementing the good feeling between the brother lodges in the Northwest. The success of the third con- ference, as well as the two Preceding conferences, is due Primarily to the vision, enter- prise and hard work of Mr. Riekles, declared Brother Ro- senstein. H. Hcrzog, Portland Lodge presi- dent, and Alex Miller, member of the General Committee of District Grand Lodge No. 4, in making their reports as delegates to the Third Conference in Vancouver, were both equally laudatory in commending the Work of Mr. P, ickles in engineer- ins the conference idea. "We need more men with the capa- city for leadership and the willing- ncss to work for our Order--more men with the tireless activity of Brother p. Allen Rickles," stated the President of Portland Lodge. The above remarks voiced by B'nai B'rith leadership in our neighboring city of Portland, impressed the writer most poignantly. For years past POrtland Lodge has served as a sort of a balance of power in the internal political mechanism of District No. 4, according to the views expressed to the Writer by various leaders "in the know.,, In other words, there has recently been developed the fiction that Portland Lodge Was always pulling away from Seattle Lodge in return for favors allegedly granted by the California lodges. As a sub- Stantiation for this allegation, witness the fact that Seattle In Memoriam Seattle Lodge extends its condolences and heartfelt sympathy to Brothers Joseph, Louis and Herman Hurwitz and the bereaved family of BROTHER JACOB HURWITZ Initiated May 22, 1905 Died June 16, 1933 May our thoughts be a com- fort in this, their sad hour.

(00he C[hatterbox Only One President to District Grand LOdge No. 4? Primarily, I believe, uecause we were not united in the NOrthwest. Now that we see evidence of good- Will existing both in our own Lodge and in our b ," , rother Lodges, the 'Ts;tr2Vest is justly entitled to have No 4 ment of District Grand Lodge a Seattle man who has served a22htully and unselfishly and who e endorsement of B'nai B'rlth leadership in the Northwest. We nominate this man on the basis of service rendered--p. Allen Rickles. O AKLAND, CAI,--A resolution Calling on leaders of American Jewry to drop differences and unite for harmo fello nmus action in the interest of , w Jews in Germany was adopted acre this Week at a special meeting of the united Jewish agencies of the East Bay communities. Past President John Stusser of Everett Lodge has joined our ranks. Welcome, Brother Stusser. By the number of members who are taking up equestrianism (horse- back riding to you) we should organ- ize our own polo team. I nominate Max Tobias for captain. They tell me Sam Powell is mov- ing to Tacoma. A good break for Tacoma Lodge, a bad one for Seattle. Sam was one of our real workers. Seattle Lodge certainly wishes you well, Sam. The official record shows that our lodge has only about 50 standing committees. Any member not on one, kindly apply to the Secretary. Don't be afraid boys, most of the standing committees don't do any- thing. They just stand.
