## Long Beach Lodge Holds Ordeal; Name & Totem Chosen

Last Winter I posted that a new OA lodge was being formed in Long Beach Area Council. Now I am pleased to report that Tico Perez has passed along news to me that this new lodge has held its first Ordeal. 38 candidates have become the first Ordeal members inducted into this lodge with the help of three lodges from southern California.

The brothers have chosen the name Puvunga, translating as “The Gathering Place”. The lodge totem will be the porpoise. I eagerly await their first lodge flap. Given the totem choice, a talented artist could create an outstanding flap.

"Mathematics has beauties of its own -- a symmetry and proportion in its results, a lack of superfluity, an exact adaptation of means to ends, which is exceedingly remarkable and to be found only in the works of the greatest beauty When this subject is properly ... presented, the mental emotion should be that of enjoyment of beauty, not that of repulsion from the ugly and the unpleasant."
