M. V. A. NOT TO GO IN
RODY T0HEAR SUNDAY
Omaha Camp No. 120, Modern Wood
men, has refused an Invitation to attend
Bllljr Sunday meeting at the tabernacle
Tha Invitation was extended to the
Vamp by a member of the Sunday cam
paign committee. It u taken up at a
meeting and a resolution M Immediately
offered that the ramp refuae the Invlts
tlon on the grounds that such an action
would be a direct violation of the law
of the order, which command that the
camp shall not take up any religious r
political questions, and also that sucfi
an action might prove offensive to'lKosi'
members of the camp who are not ia
sympathy with the Sunday campaign. '
"We have l.lno member In our camp,"
ask! a prominent Woodman, "and of that
number many ar noman Catholics;
Jews. Unitarians, Cnrtatlan Scientists and
msny who belong to no faith. We coul
hot, therefore, accept the Invitation to
aitfnd In a body as Woodmen."
" The reaolutlon to refuse the Invitation"
was passed unanimously. There was not
a dissenting vote.
Tamp No. 130 also resolved to protest
against any of the other Omaha Wood
men ramps attending the campaign as
Woodmen on the same grounds as they
refused the Invitation.
The resolution offered no objections to
any Woodman attending the meeting,
no criticism was made of Hilly" Sun
day or his methods, but the protest was
made that no ramp atlrnd a tabernacle
meeting officially a members of the
Modern Woodmen because of the fact
that so many religious order were rep
resented within the organisation.
