J.M. Sharp, Reidsville attorney and vice counselor of the National Junior Order, called for a revitalization of the three principal tenets of the order.
Speaking to the order's Greensboro council, Sharp said new emphasis should be put on those tenets: maintaining separation of church and state; maintaining the public school system; and protecting the nation's four freedoms.
He said there also is a need to protect against "isms" and "schisms" and called for restrictions on immigration to keep undesirables out of the country.
