INTRODUCTORY

The Grand Commandery, by resolution adopted at I
Sixty-third Annual Conclave in Kokomo, fixed Eva.
ville as the place for the Sixty-fourth Annual ConcL
to be held May 8th and 9th, 1918. Th< of

Evansville made elaborate preparation notwithstanding
the fact that they were handicapped more or less by
the extraordinary conditions of the country because of
the war, eliminating many features for the entertain-
ment of the Knights that they had anticipated when
their invitation to the Grand Commandery to meet at
Evansville was accepted. With all the drawbacks,
however, the Sixty-fourth Annual Conclave was a
great success from every viewpoint.

The General Committee and Local Committees of
LaValette Commandery are entitled to the thanks and
praise of all Knights in attendance for the splendid ar-
rangements made for the comfort and consideration of
the Grand Commandery. Everything was done by the
splendid Commandery of Evansville to insure a success-
ful conclave and such entertainment for the ladies as
was in accord with the times.

The arrangement for a patriotic demonstration
at the Coliseum evidenced a spirit of love of country
not only by the Knights but by the public of Evansville,
At this demonstration, Senator Watson was to have
been the principal speaker but on account of missing
his train connections, was unable to be present. Hia
place was taken by Dr. William F. Kuhti. Past Grand
Commander of Missouri, who delivered a most eloquent
address and while all regretted the absence of Senator
Watson, the place was so ably filled by Dr. Kuhn, that
everyone was delighted with his presentation of the war

problems. Dr. Kuhn was followed by ex-congressman
Chaney who also delivered a very pleasing and forceful
address. The music by the specially arranged choir of
many voices added very largely to this patriotic demon-
stration.

We are pleased to give the names of the committees
who worked so faithfully to make a success and to
maintain the reputation of the city of Evansville to
entertain those within her gates.
