Fraternal Society Cartoon

Dusty D found this interesting as a relic from days when fraternal organizations were popular social institutions, in Ypsi as well, whose newspapers used to feature frequent stories about the goings-on of the Knights of Pythias et al.

The caption for this cartoon (click to enlarge) so far as I can read is says "The royal impossible potentate of the flowing purple robe, who had left the lodge rooms in [a ru]sh to shut up a bunch of hootstown [row]dies, came out second in the fracas."

--Ypsilanti Daily Press, November 2, 1933.
