BEN CUT IN GERMANY
London. May 10. (1. X. S.) The
ranish newspaper Hlbestlits Tldende
claims to have dincovereil ly a month'j
lrvestiKatlon that the belief prevails
in Germany that it is impossible to
continue the war to the end of 1011.

"The rations of the German soldiers j
were cut ix weeks ago. Meat is be- i

ounces dally and food parcels from j

"Desertions are numerous and 'they

incidentally the paper announces the
discovery of a process of making a
certain quality of steel for muni

"A neWproof of thla is presented

STYLE OF DRESS HELD
AT FAULT FOR MORAL
STAIN UPON YOUTH
(Continued From P Orr)
youth of moving pictures, uncensored
vaudeville, suggestive advertising, lack
of proper sex education and over-fa-mlllarlty
'between the sexes.
Sr. Boyd Propounds Question.
But it va through a question, pro
pounded by Dr. John H. Boyd, pastor
of the First Presbyterian church, that
the first real stir In the session came.
Harry 11. Moore of the Oregon So
cial Hygiene society had delivered
an address in which he particularly
emphasized the harm resulting from
perverted, rather than wholesome sex
education. particularly received
through moving pictures.
This was followed by an explana
tion of censorship in Portland by Rev.
W. G. Eliot Jr., who asserted that
while pictures are censored In the
city there Is no censorship through
out the state and that pictures offi
cially refused exhibition in Portland
may be sent to any other Oregon
Then President W. T. Foster of Reed
college, chairman of the meeting, said
that while there is censorship of mov
ing pictures in Portland, and while
moving picture managers give evi
dence of desire to cooperate in
elevation of the pictures, there is no
censorship of vaudeville and little de
sire to cooperate to be found in vaude
ville managers, while vaudeville is
much lower in moral tone in Portland
than moving pictures.
Creations In Gowns Attacked.
At this Juncture Or. Boyd inter
posed his question. "What effect liiis
the modern place of woman to tlu
problem of the moral strain upon
youth?" he addressed II. H. Moore, lie
"To my mind modern feminine dress
Is far more significant than the mov
ing picture show. And not so many
people attend vaudeville. But we have
woman in a new place. Her natural
condition is negative and receptive.
She has become aggressive and trained
in knowledge of her powers. I his
shortening of the dress, this lowering,
this exposure, isn't there a meaning
In this. Why. it has not been so long
since that a dance participated in by
the sons and daughters of our friends
and neighbors had to be dismissed be
fore the hcur for dismissal because
those young folks refused to be con
trolled. What have we here in this
form of feminism. Should we not
have an agitation in the home and a
sincere and definite cooperation on the
part of parents to correct these
Another Question Is Added.
Rev. J. D. Springston added to the
question this: "Do you not thinx that
the advertising of the motion picture
is more suggestive and harmful than
the picture itself?"
Moore answered indefinitely but to
the general -effect that the conditions
described are not so serious a factor
as had been Indicated in the lives of
Both questioners Intimated person
ally that Moore did not answer the
question adequately because nc fears
to do so.
While the main thought of tins
morning's sesfiion was that vigorous
correctives must be used by educa
tors, religious ami social woraers 10
keep youth from harmful, modern in
fluences. Dr. W. K. Conklin, professor
of psychology in the University of
Oregon, struck a contrary note.
"The necessity of preaching politi
cal and economical sermons," he com
plained, "demanding a wide study of
the non-spiritual, and the constant
demand to be a good mixer, a social
reformer and an institutionalizer of
his church work, makes it Impossible
for the clergyman to cultivate the
spiritual qualities of life. To be sure
he may be more spiritual than the
average man of the world hut he is
not enough so to make a very deep
Draws Conclusion From Literature.
"In fad. it is getting so Ui.u one
can scarcely tell a clergyman from
any otfier man. Women to wncm we
naturally look next, are, I am airaid,
losing something of their spirituality,
although here perhaps I am not a
capable Judge. Still, the literature of
the last few years would indicate that
it certainly Is- not improved. And the
decline of home life gives them by so
much the smaller opportunity to make
their spirituality felt. The teaching
profession, which had a spiritual an
cestry, is now mechanized by method.
The saints to be found In the schools
are so In spite of, not because of, the
"There was a time when we could
look to the cloistered life of the college
professor for spirituality. But the
cloister wall has fallen and the unpro
tected professor has surrendered to the
demands of the world. The man whi
once lived a quiet life of study and
meditation and profound Influence
must now be practical and up-to-the-minute.
The extension idea drags htm
from his study and meditation to
stump the country with the popular
izations of hla science."
Preliminary to the arrival of Dr.
Foster the morning session was
called to order by Rev. W. G. iillot Jr.,
chairman of the program committee.
