Warden’s Retreat Application
An investigation of a Petitioner consists of a great deal more than a casual interview or a couple of hurried calls to the Petitioner’s references on the very day that the investigation report is due. It is human nature that a Petitioner will give as references those who are most likely to give him a clean bill of health. We need to face the fact that more than just a few Lodges have taken in members of whom they cannot be proud, and who, had they been thoroughly investigated, would never have passed the ballot box. What every Lodge desperately needs is a group of men who will not only consider the statements of the Petitioner, but will go behind those statements and take them to pieces to see if they are really true in fact, or are partly or wholly fictitious.
