Popular and Effective Meet
' ing at First Baptist Church
Last Night
Young people's night at the Hap
tist revival proved to be a popular
and effective meeting. The center
and front of the church was com
pletely filled with young folk who
joined heartily in the singing. Old
favorites were called for and sung.
The trombone solo by Mr. Tebow,
who played "Ninety and Nine"
while Mrs. Tebow accompanied on
the piano, was especially enjoyed.
After the solo the audience joined
in singing the last verse:
All through the mouutains, thun
der riven,
And up from the rocky steep,
There rose a cry to the gates of
"Rejoice, I have found my
And the angels echoed around the
"Rejoice, for the Lord brings back
His own."
The sermon by Dr. Trawin was
on the: rich young ruler who came
to Jesus asking what he should do
to inherit eternal, life. He came
running, the record says, and knelt
before Jesus; but when Jesus told
him what he was to do, to let go of
that which was really his master,
his property, he arose and went
away sorrowful, for he had great
"Anything," said Dr. Trawin,
"that keeps us is our master. No
matter whether riches, or pleasure,
or ambition for self, that which
controls us masters us. This young
man called Jesus master, but fn
reality his riches mastered him.
He lost his great opportunity in
his great refusal."
At the close of the sermon a
number came forward to accept
Christ and an after-meeting for
prayer "was held. There will be
no meeting this evening. Dr. Tra
win will preach both morning and
evening tomorrow. In the evening
his subject will be "Has Man Be
come the Weaker Vessel?" In the
afternoon at 4 o'clock there will
be a young people's rally, to which
all the young people of the city
are invited, and Dr. Shanks, tho
pastor, will address the meeting

"After a conference with the
director of the bureau of investi
gation a circular letter was sent
out to all special agents through
out the country instructing them
to keep a careful lookout for such
violations and alsp with a view
to securing evidence of a conspir
acy. A copy of this circular letter
is enclosed- Under date of Febru
ary 9, lt22, the United States
attorney at Philadelphia called the
department's attention to certain
circumstances in connection with
the circular latter and he was
directed to make a thorough in
vestigation and to prosecute vigor
ously any person found guilty of
transporting the Dempsey-Carpen-tier
film. As it had at that time
been brought to the attention of
the department that the courts
were imposing only a fine which
apparently was having no deter- en defendants."
rent effect, the department con
cluded that it wouy be necessary
for the courts to impose a more
drastic punishment, that there
should be a sentence of imprison
ment. The act prescribes a fine
of not to exceed $1,000 or iiupris-.
on men t. not to exceed one year,
or both.
In the letter to the United
States attorney at Philadelphia he
was therefore required in the
event an indictment was return
ed in his district and the defend
ant proposed to enter a plea of
guilty to immediately inform the
department so that it might del
egate someone to appear specially
for it Subsequently, upon receipt
oE advice as to when the case
would be called an attorney from
the department was directed to
appear before the court and call
its attention to the repeated viola
tion of the law and the need "Of a
prison sentence to secure proper
respect for it.
' The court was told that the
department believed the offenses
were the result of a prearranged
plan to defy the film statute, and
that the payment of a fine did not
seem to deter further violations
whenever a field seemed to offer
good financial returns.
The case was that of Joe CJrif
fis the court fined the defendant
As opportunity has offered from
time to time the department has
in communications to the United
Spates attorney In various parts of
the country as its files show, em
phasized its attitude regarding the
vigorous prosecution or cases oi
this character. There has been an
extended investigation as to the
substantive offense and a conspir
acy in some instances is still in
progress with respect to not only
the Dempsey-Carpentier film but
as to the Willard-Dempsey, the
Dempsey-Gibbons and the Demp-t

tume. Rice and tea formed part
of the menu.
