But above all WORK THE PLAN. Each Terror must perfect himself and herself in the work assigned"; Eight, that "idealism, insight and philosophy underlying the Invisible Empire constitutes the last thought in Anglo-Saxon, Protestant progress. Our principles are hoary with age and are commensurate with Israel's, (Anglo-Saxon_ struggle for rightful, human liberty. [...] Do not pass lightly over these teachings. Think them through. Put them into practice. The Klan is not "Ritual Bound" [...] Invisible Empire is found in "THE HOLLOW SQAURE" or "OPEN QUADRATE". The Quadrate was first used in Human history by Moses following a plan show him from Heaven. At the Exodus, the twelve tribes were formed about an open quadrate, three tribes to the corner. [...] The Ark of the Covenant was placed on the altar in the centre of the Quadrate, Moses stood at the centre of the Quadrate line -open space. The other three sides of the Quadrate were filled in by the twelve tribes. Our Klaverns are perfect quadrates - Hollow Squares. No one ever passes between the altar, the Ark of (our) Covenant and the station of the Exalted Cyclops. [...] Great Britain, long centuries ago, adopted the Quadrate, hollow square, as the basis of her offensive army formation. The Klan is symbolically following Moses to freedom. Following the Quadrate idea, K-UNO is a quadrate of quadrates in its fundamental principles and teaching. [...] The sign of the Quadrate [...] same as the sign of "KLANISHNESS" and also the sign of "KLAN LOYALTY". The sign is made by closing the fist of the right hand and placing it over the heart, then by closing the fist of the left hand and placing it over the elbow of the right arm. This forms a perfect quadrate in all men. This sign is made at all opening ceremonies, at all funerals, at all public demonstrations and is made and held in all Klan parades. [...] The quadrate revealed, both Kloranically and philosophically, is as follows: Dedicated in (1) body (2) mind (3) spirit (4) life; Dedicated to (1) our country (2) our klan (3) our homes (4) each other (humanity); Our Program (1) one of chivalry (2) one of humanity (3) one of justice (4) one of patriotism; Our Spirit: (1) honor (2) chivalry (3) industry (4) love; this completes the quadrate of quadrates for K-UNO [...] Take the principle of klannishness alone. The application of this fundamental principle in actual, practical demonstration, is a quadrate. We have sworn practice klannishness: (1) socially (2) physically (3) morally (4) vocationally; Our Ark of the (our) Covenant is composed of the following which constitute our sacred altar. They are: (1) the flag (2) the bible (3) the sword (4) the water; Our oath (Covenant) pledges protection to this Ark. We shall protect these even unto death. The symbolism will be further unfolded in Bulletin #30. The Ladies of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada will understand these Bulletins apply to them also." Document signed by the "Invisible Empire Ku Klux Klan of Kanada".

The robes worn by members are white, with white girdles and also white helmets". As for Open Air Demonstrations, they recently had a successful on in Kingston on July 31, where some thirty thousand people came.

Continues to quote Tennyson, "I dreamed that stone by stone I reared a sacred flame, a temple, neither pagoda, mosque, nor church, but a loftier, simpler, always open-doored to every breath from Heaven, and Truth and Peace, and Love and Justice came and dwelt therein". Further quotes "To live as gently as I can,/ To be no matter where --a man;/ To take what comes of good or ill,/ And cling to faith and honor still;/ To do my best and let that stand,/ The record of my brain and hand;/ And then should failure come to me,/ Still work and hope for victory".

Bulletin No. 40.

Addressed to "Faithful and Esteemed Klansmen and Klanswoman". Begins with addressing the large "Publishing House in Ontario" that is "interested in our Anglo-Saxon Movement", that will publish a paper in their interest and financed by subscriptions from members. This "official paper" will help spread articles of instructions to members and others interested in the principles of their movement. The Publishing House has requested the Organization to supply material relative to their work, and they will publish items of current topics and general news. The weekly paper would cost $2.00 per year. Further addresses reports that there are too many that are "not" interested in the Klan, but use it as a "centre to air their family quarrels and social differences". This will only humiliate the Klan in "the eyes of the alien world". They thus need more members who will live up to their obligations, and work in Clannish unison. Signed by George Marshall, Imperial Wizard, and J.S. Lord, Imperial Kligrapp.
