They'll Do It Every Time (c.1950)|
They'll Do It Every Time was a one or two-panel newspaper comic strip, created by James Cecil Hatlo (1897/09/01-1963/12/01), better known as Jimmy Hatlo, and distributed by King Features Syndicate. It first appeared on February 5, 1929 and ran until February 2, 2008.
One panel depicted a fraternal lodge initiation complete with candidate riding a goat and older members standing around the room muttering complaints about how poorly the "ritual" is being conducted. The editor of this website once, briefly in the mid-1980s, saw the panel framed and hanging on the office wall of the masonic lodge hall in Whitehorse, but unfortunately has not been able to find it again. Hatlo made other references to fraternal lodges but none, apparently, specifically to Freemasonry.
