Update January 2013 Ed White sends along an image of a variant neckerchief. He is aware of at least one other neckerchief with this Red and Yellow color combination. He speculates that it may be a Lodge Chief issue.

    Hi Bill and Neale-
    From what I’ve seen, there is a neckerchief slide (bakelite? type… with black indian head profile and says “Area II-G Conference……….1954”). I have never seen a patch……..I believe the patch confusion has lingered for years with some confusion about the white arrowhead patch with pine tree (actually belonging to the 1955 conference). I do have a color picture of the 1954 slide and will scan and send to you.
    My best-
    -Ray Gould

    Hi Neale,

    Ona Yote Kaonaga Lodge #500 was chartered the year before, should’ve been in that area, but your list confirms that they didn’t attend 2-G (not until 1955). Any ideas why, or maybe they were just too new?
