SIDEBARLaughs

From the court room to the lodge room, gavels are traditionally used - both symbolically and literally - to control and maintain order. UPBEAT NEWS knows about a certain Worshipful Master (Lodge President) Glenn Latshaw  of USS New Jersey Lodge in South Jersey who has had his share of bad luck with his gavel, snapping the head off of not less than 3 during his term of office. 

This prompted a long-time friend and brother Mason to solve the problem by presenting the Worshipful Master with a Fisher-Price toy gavel belonging to the friend's 2-year-old son, Zachary, at a recent open Installation of Officers as a practical joke,  The  multi-colored toy was very sturdy, plus it gave  a  playful squeak with every use.

Well, after everyone had their laughs, and the festivities were winding-down, the Master dutifully presented the toy gavel instead of the actual one to his District Deputy RW William J. Krassen
as part of the honors given to such a person which allows the Lodge to be closed in an abbreviated manner. 

The quick-thinking Deputy ceremoniously received it and then, after his closing remarks, summoned Zack to join him at the podium to retrieve his toy, but not without giving him the opportunity to grasp the handle with the Deputy to help close his Daddy's lodge with a final official squeaky rap!
