By Brother Sidney P. Brown
Goodwill is the monarch of this house, men unacquainted, enter, shake hands, exchange greetings and depart friends. Cordiality exist among all who abide within. I am the eminent expression of friendship. Character and temperament change under my dominant power. Lives once touched by me become tuned and are thereafter amiable, kindly, fraternal.
I inspire the musician to play noble sentiments and assist the chemist to convert ungenerous personalities into individuals of great worth. I destroy ignoble impulses. I constantly invoke principles which make for common brotherhood and the echo resounds in all communities and princely men are thereby recognized. Education, health, music, encouragement, sympathy, laughter, All these are species of interest given of self invested capital.
Tired moments find me a delightful treat. Hours of Sorrow, a shrine of understanding, at all times I am faithful to the creed of companionship. To a few, I am the castle of dreams, ambitious, successful, hopeful dreams. To many, I am the poetic palace where human feeling is rhymed to celestial motives. To the great majority, I am the treasury of good fellowship. In fact, I am the college of friendship; the University of brotherly love; the school for the Better making of men.
