Franklin C. Caruthers, Post 148's first Commander was elected Second District Commander at the State Convention.

Two resolutions were also passed that year. One urged passage of veteran's preferences in hiring. Another opposed appointment of anyone "who advocated Communism" to anyone in a teaching position. The delegates also voted to amend their Constitution to allow naming of a negro Department Vice-Commander to represent the interest of negro veterans.
