Have you thought of this?
The badge is often the only
tangible souvenir that remains in
the possession of the member who
attended. Very often hundreds
and thousands of dollars are spent
on music, decorations, flowers,
carriages, automobiles, cigars,
as well as general entertainment,
none of which remain in existence
after the convention is over. The
badge does, however, and aside
from being a souvenir in itself, is
a pleasant reminder of all the
other good times experienced.
In view of these facts, should not
a committee give special attention
to the selection of a badge that
is worth of the occasion? In
view of the large sums of money
that go up in smoke, should a
committee allow the matter of a
few cents to stand in the way of
obtaining a suitable badge?
