Nine years ago I was posting about the Section NE-3 1987 Section Conclave. In addition to the pocket patch I posted then, Mia Hubbert sent an image of the hat pin made for the event.

“Every new regulation concerning commerce or revenue … presents a new harvest to those who watch the change and can trace its consequences; a harvest reared not by themselves but by the toils and cares of the great body of their fellow citizens. This is a state of things in which it may be said with some truth that laws are made for the few not for the many.” –James Madison

Chi Sigma Lodge #546 Neckerchief N1

Recently acquired a couple of Chi Sigma Lodge #546 N0.5. While it is pictured on OA Images, so I thought I would show it here, I also plan to post images of the other neckerchiefs from Chi Sigma, so there will be examples from the same scanner. Hopefully that will at least lead to consistent colors.

The Blue Book description is:
N1 – – WHT BLK SSC design like the J issues; scant GRN in bushes
You will see there are now black details in the waterfall, unlike the N0.5.

“No man can well doubt the propriety of placing a president of the United States under the most solemn obligations to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution. It is a suitable pledge of his fidelity and responsibility to his country; and creates upon his conscience a deep sense of duty, by an appeal, at once in the presence of God and man, to the most sacred and solemn sanctions, which can operate upon the human mind.” –Joseph Story (1833)
