ANDRE LAMBERT, messen
ger, said: "I like the regular
vaudeville acts better than the
vitaphone. Seeing the actors on
the stage is Bnappier than
watching a picture of them,
even though they do sing and
talk just like real Ute."
HUBERT LEWIS. West
Point cadet, visiting In Salem,
said: "The vitaphone acta
bring us artists we could not
get here otherwise. Most men's
voices sound good but the wqm
en'usually sound like a cheap,
tin phonograph. That will be
corrected in time though and
the vitaphone will be as good
as the real actors."
HARRY PLANT, local prize
fight promoter and caretaker
of the Salem armory,' said: "I
can't see that the talking mov
ies areany particular improve
ment over the old silent kind.
Personally, I would enjoy al
most any of their speaking 'pro
ductions just as well without
the sound. I haven't any par
ticular objection to the speak
ing part, though."
MRS. M. CLIFFORD MOYN
IHAN, wife of a local attorney,
said: "I like the 'talkies' 'much
better. Without them It would
be Impossible to hear a produc
tion like 'The Singin' Fool. in
which Al Jolson sang so many
of his songs. You 'enjoy a song

tion, bat you can't see the sing

Jack plays an Englishman this

of Peg. But Jack makes the fatal
mistake of trying to screw his
monocle into the eye with the rov

Eugene Minister Closing
Speaker at Unitarian Con
"Youth Is not religious today,"
declared the Rev. Ernest M
Whitesmith. Eugene minister, at
the closing session of the coher
ence of the Unitarian churches
here last night. The 192 confer-
ence will be held in Vancouver,
B. C. ' --''.I
This is my observation from
my experiences as pastor in var
ious churches in different parts of
ther country, Mr. Whitesmith
said. "The average student win
subscribe to any creed ! thought
lessly as long as no one Interferes
with his actions. i
Instead ot learning to think
these young men and women go to
the universities not knowing what
they want. Real culture, which la
the ability to see Ills In proper
proportion. Is lacking for the7
want to learn how to make a living-
rather than how to live."
Clarence J. Young, Portland at
torney, representing the! lay at
titude of the church and Its func
tion, emphasised the fact that the
value of any religious group to
society must not bo judged by the
numbers ot that group, but by the
contribution ot Its members to
civilization today. i
He mentioned the large propor
tion of Unitarians In the" "hall of
fame" and in Who's Who In
America, in spite of the! compar
atively, small number ot Unitar
ians. . ;
Proeeiytinar HI V'"
He warned -his -hearers not to
cheapen religion in order to in
crease numbers by proselyting
among the established churches.
but said that since 6X) per cent 'dt
the. people of the United States be
long to no church that is Ithe prop
er field for their activities.
The Rev. Charles Pease of Spo
kane closed the conference, speak
ing on the "Function of the Lib
eral Church in Relation to the
Mystic Way." Mr. Pease asserted
that in spite of the fact that many
people think the Unitarian church
Is merely a rational movement in
religion, as a matter of fact It has
the finest element of practical
mysticism. He showed that the
quietism ot oriental mystics could
not satisfy the western! temper
ament, but that the energy" of
modern civUltatlon can. be soften
ed and beautified - by : the mysti
dam' exemplified by the lit and
words of Jesus. ,
";M Conference Closes
The devotional service of the
closing meeting- was conducted by f
the Rev. Dorothy Dyar of the
University Unitarian church of Se
attle, who with the Rev. Ada Ton
kin of Vancouver, B. C. discussed
the problem of religious education
at the morning session. -
