The Oakland, California, Elks Lodge states in the Preface that "the principal object of the primer is to invite the hosts of Elks that are in attendance at Los Angeles to visit Oakland, 171, before returning home. We are proud of our lodge and of our city, and we want to show you both. We will guarantee to make your stay in Oakland pleasant, and with the hope that you will accept this invitation." It is put together in a parody of an elementary school primer with simple works, large print, and illustrations.
