“The Star and Crescent shall not be worn by

every man, but only him who is worthy to wear

it. He must be a gentleman...a man of honor and courage...a man of zeal, yet humble...an

intelligent man...a man of truth...one who

tempers action with wisdom and, above all else,

one who walks in the light of God.”
