oughly healthy persons It Is absolutely
certain to manifest itself, just as sure
ly, for instance, as the action of tne
diaphragm in breathing.
Not to recognize this fundamental
fact of physiology- andv psychology
means that your conclusions on such
subjects as dancing, which truly enough
is a. secondary sexutvexpression, will
be tainted with hopeless confusion and
the grossest misconceptions.

HIU will build a two-story structure

Far from dancing being wicked and
"sinful," it is in reality a salutary sub

Dancing has teen compared by Have

lightning rod which leads the sexual
Instinct safely to the ground. Other

It is nothing less, than folly to fancy
that this Instinct, implanted In human

back over millions of generations of
living things, can be rooted out or per
manently held back. That method hs
been tried by thousands of puritans
and ascetics, with results often fatal
to health and sanity.
Public morality is genuinely "pro

air is good and no dust arises from the
floor, and where halls aro properly
