Fraternal Time covers 6: East

Time Magazine May 19 1952

On this cover we see the cardinal points arranged with East in the top position where North would usually be. Masons do the same on there Tracing Boards. East is where the sun rises, the all important over arching theme found ubiquitously in Masonry, veneration of the sun. Interestingly the East spoke crosses the word news which is an amalgamation of the first letters of the four cardinal points.
