would provide my church with a so

under proper supervision, dinning
parties and other gatherings, where

more advanced thinkers the world over.
In suite of the nniKisitlnn of the church
dancing is still the most favored form
of social amusement, jml the church
has lost its hold upon thousands of
young people because of its attitude to

there is lax supervision. The church,
which is really the parents, is probably
