The General Executive Board believes that the Brotherhood should purchase a lot and erect a suitable building as a permanent home, preferably in the outskirts of some city in which reasonable competition upon our printing can be had. This matter should be given thought so that it may be dealt with intelligently and satisfactorily at the General Assembly to be held in Rochester, N. Y., in 1913, or, if no Convention be held, by the membership, through the referendum. If we continue to rent, no change can be made advantageously unless the Constitution be amended to provide that Headquarters shall remain for a specified period in the city selected. The expense of removal and of fitting up new offices to meet our needs forbids frequent changes.
