While this may not be of much of a help in your project, here is an
interesting anecdote.

Our Lodge used to have our general membership meetings at 10.00am each
Sunday. Usually the ES met between 9.00AM and 10.00AM. We had a couple, who
were members of TS and ES. They would come to the ES meeting very
religiously and as soon as the ES meeting was over they would not care to
attend the general TS Meeting nor even take a few minutes to meet those
assembled and leave immediately. This they did year after year till they
moved out to another city. The husband later held a very important high
International Office. If I had an opportunity to meet them, I would remind
them of their behaviour.

What this seems to show is that there appears to be a mistaken idea in the
minds of many ES members that their meetings and activities are somehow
more important than that of the ordinary TS membership. (I would very much
like to know, if possible what the Adepts think about this possible attitude.)

I do not know if any of you like to share your interesting experiences.
