Lodge Night is a 1923 silent comedy short released by Pathé and directed by Robert F. McGowan as part of the Our Gang / Little Rascals series. When Joe arrives as the new boy is school and all the girls take a shine to him the other boys in the gang are jealous. The best way they can think of to get him away from the girls is to initiate him into their secret society, the Cluck Cluck Klams.
After figuring out ingenious ways to simulate they are still practicing their musical instruments Jackie and Mickey are finally able to sneak away to the special meeting. Gathering in their ‘lodge’ (really Joe’s barn) the group proceeds to initiate Joe with a few tricks.
As the meeting proceeds car thieves sneak into the barn, and when they make their getaway, Farina and Jackie are in the back seat.
