REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT PATRIOTIC INSTRUCTOR.

HAVERHILL, Mass., April 25, 1919. Timothy W. Kelly, Department Commander of Massachusetts, U. S. W. V.

SIR AND COMRADE: — In compliance with orders I respectfully submit the following report.

Patriotism, love of country, — these are the principles for which the members of our organization volunteered their services during the Spanish War, and which citizens of other countries throughout the world have been called upon to manifest when their country was in danger. Any citizen who shows his patriotism and love of country by offering his services in time of war, and who is willing to sacrifice his life if need be for his country and his patriotic ideals, could do no more honorable act or deed in life.

Since accepting the office of Patriotic Instructor I have been called on several different occasions for my opinion. To answer some of the questions I have had to consult the book, but nevertheless, I have answered all correctly. The occasions include churches, lodges, clubs, as well as individuals.

I regret that I have been unable to accompany the Department Commander on all his visitations. Having been connected with the State Guard it kept me somewhere about all the time. I can report, however, that patriotism has been demonstrated up to the requirements by the people of New England.

JUST REMEMBER.
The boys across the water are brave as boys can be.
They have been fighting for Democracy, that the world might he free.
A number out of our ranks have gone, that, you all know, is so,
And a greater number have tried to enlist, but the doctor said no.
So let us all be contented and continue with a patriotic heart,
That the world, the whole world, will know we tried to do our part.

Respectfully submitted,

CHARLES F. GLOVER, Department Patriotic Instructor.

On motion of Past Commander John S. Woodfin, Camp 16, seconded by Comrade Daniel McLellan, Camp 9, it was voted to accept the report of the Department Patriotic Instructor.

REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPARTMENT ADJUTANT.

East Boston, Mass., April 24, 1919. TIMOTHY W. KELLY, Department Commander, Department of Massachusetts,

U.S. W. V. Sir: — In compliance with General Orders No. 6, Series No. 1918–19, dated April 10, 1919, I have the honor to submit the following report as First Assistant Department Adjutant for the term ending April 27, 1919.

Having been previously elected and appointed to various offices in connection with the Department, the Municipal Council and Camp 3, I was appointed by you to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Comrade Columbus, that of First Assistant Department Adjutant.

Though about all my available time has been taken up with Department, Council and Camp activities, I managed to devote some of it to the duties assigned me by the Department Adjutant, one of which was assuming the custody and distribution of the surplus badges to be sold throughout the Department for 15 cents apiece, the proceeds from same to be added to the legislative fund.

STATEMENT IN REGARD TO SURPLUS BADGES. Number of badges received from Department Adjutant, . . Badges returned from Camp 14, . . . . . .

Camps having made returns to date: 3, 6, 18, 27, 38, 42, 44, 48, 50 and 52.

53 and 56.

In view of the fact that a large number of Camps have as yet made no returns, I have filed with the Department Adjutant an itemized account of distribution and receipts from same for future adjustment.

Respectfully submitted,

CHARLES C. DONOGHUE, Assistant Department Adjutant.

On motion of Comrade James A. Haley, Camp 1, seconded by Comrade H. Hector Beaton, Camp 12, it was voted that the report of the Assistant Department Adjutant be accepted.
