Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...Secretary-general Leland: I would like to say, in behalf of Massachusetts, that the dues of the Massachusetts Society are five dollars a year. We give the members two smoke talks a year free gratis; and we have a number of men who live a long distance from Boston, one or two in foreign countries. I think it would be very difficult for the Massachusetts Society to meet the 75 cent per capita tax in addition to other regular expenses of the year. Mr. Arthurs: I would like to ask Mr. Leland whether it would not be better to meet that tax year after year than for him and others of the Massachusetts Society to go down in their pockets and pay these expenses now? Wouldn't you pay less, paying it little by little every year, than by going down in your pockets for $50 or $100 for a meeting like this? Secretary-general Leland: I think one is a gratuitous contribution among gentlemen willing to give $20, $50 or $100, whatever it may be, and the other is a demand for certain dues every year, and a man will tell you that he does not get his money's worth in the membership, whereas he might give $50 in connection with a celebration of this kind. Mr. Arthurs: We do not propose in Maryland to raise our dues, at all, to the members, to pay the 75 cent tax. We will not have to do it. We give about four entertainments a year there, and what we get is paid out in dues. It will not hit us, at all. Dr. Buckenham: The Maryland Society has been very fortunate in having $3 dues for some time. Mr. Arthurs: Only lately. Dr. Buckenham: Well, then, you are even more fortunate. But for some time the $2 dues have been our limit, and I know that in Philadelphia about the most unpopular sort of talk is to talk about increasing dues. We would have just $1.25 left, if we paid more
