THx PRUIDENT: Ladies and gentlemen, we will call this meeting
to order. The Rev. B. J. Steeker will lead us in invocation.
By the Rzv. STrcCw
Eternal God, we stand in the presence of the divine truth this morn-
ing, that Thou art the giver of every good and every perfect gift;
that we live in a world which is of wide design and that all therein
is Thy gift to the children of men. The cattle of a thousand hills be-
long to Thee and the gold and the silver is all Thine. Thou hast made
Thine children students of all these things. Thou dost open Thine hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
Not only do we recognize that Thou art the designer and creator
of all things goodly but that Thou hast made man in Thine own
image and in Thine own likeness. That Thou hast endowed man with
an eternal soul and when he leaves this world he Is going on living
in a world to come. We thank Thee that Thou dost not only so
graciously provide for all the wants of man but for the soul Thou
hast endowed him with as welL That Thou hast given him a divine
truth upon which his soul may keep and so in recognition of Thy
divine divinity we as Thy servants bow down In obedience and ad-
miration this day and pray Thy blessing upon this group of men and
direct them and move them in a proper sense of the stewardship we
have in this life.
These things we all ask in the name of Christ, our living Lord and
Redeemer. Amen.
TH3 PRESIDENr: The next on our program will be the address of
welcome by Mayor Albert J. Rosenthal, Fond du Lac. I take pleasure
in introducing Mr. Rosenthal.
Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen: It always gives me great
pleasure when people start their urdertakings or their doings of any
kind in the manner in which you have started them this morning, by
the invocation of the Rev. Stecker.
