THE LODGE SYSTEM OF MASONIC EDUCATION
It is too much to expect any man, that without guidance, he shall be able to make himself at home in such a society, or that he shall unaided, be able to take his own proper place in his Lodge’s work with credit to himself and honor to the Fraternity; he has every moral right to expect that the Lodge itself shall give him much of the information he needs. It is because many of the Brethren never receive this information, and are permitted to come and perhaps go undirected and uninstructed, that they either cease attending Lodge at all or, too often undertake an active part, but for a lack of knowing better, blunder into humiliation to themselves, and damage to the Lodge and the Fraternity.
