PASTOR TEARS INTO THE
ARABIAN NIGHT'S BALL
Declaring it to be a disgrace to
any self-respecting people and
something that the police should
stop, Rev. J. S. Ladd Thomas of
the Austin Methodist church in
his sermon Sunday tore the lining
out of the Arabian Night's ball,
to be held at the. First Regiment
Armory, Jan. 10.
He classed the planned brilliant
affair with the old-time First
,Ward ball, and said that "the sale
of wine and cigarets was a dis
grace." Also that its being for the
relief of the poverty strickenwas
a farce and that it meant the
ruination of maiy young men.
Those in charge of the affair,
and the women heads of Passa
vant and Lyingin Hospitals, for
whose benefit, the ball is. to be
given, were shocked at the pas
tor's outburst, and said it was
without foundation and should be
ignored. They declared wine and
cigarets would not be sold by so
ciety debutantes, but by profes
sional waiters.

"SOMETHING AWFUL" IS
PULLED OFF
London, Dec. 23. London suf
fragettes today made good their
threat of two weeks ago that they
Voufd pull off "something awful"
at Christmas time.
They attacked the Christmas
mail. London's entire police
force was inadequate for protection-
The "suffs" poured wax and
colored fluids into the letter
boxes. As there were not enough
policemen to station one at each
box, the attacks were practically
unchecked.. Women dropped the
destroying stuff into boxes while
apparently mailing a Christmas
card.
A million or more people will
fail to receive gifts intended for
them as a result of today's depre
dations. Arrest's were compara
tively few, fhough boxes were at
tacked in every section of the city.
WORTH IT
A newly-married couple and a
friend were traveling by train,
when they suddenly plunged into
the darkness of a tunnel. There
was no light in the carriage, and
when they abruptly returned to
daylight the bride and the bride
groom, were caught kissing fur
tively. The friend was embarrassed,
and he said the first thing that
came into his head: "Thajt ah
that tunnel cost ten million dol
lars." The bridegroom nodded his
head wisely. "Well," he said, "it
was worth it."
