J. Finley Wilson, Grand Exalted Ruler of
the Improved Benevolent Protective Order of
Elks of the World. The most dynamic frater-
nal leader the world has ever known, has com-
pleted his llth year as the Grand Exalted
Ruler of the I. B. P. O. E. of W., and it would
have been hard to have found a leader who
could have carried the Order through the rough
shoals of the depression of the past several
years, as the "Little Napoleon" as he is fondly
called by his friends, has done. It is felt by all,
that his experience is needed for the successful
continuance of a larger Elk's program. It is
hoped that he will continue his work for the
love of God and the good of Humanity.
