Scores Loose Fashions.
"I saw fashions *in woman's
in Italy in 1912, and thank Gc
I saw them, I thought that dow
dear old Dixie such things wer?
known. When lo, I found the :
ions had beaten me home-that 1
taken a slow boat.
"I saw public Move-making'
loose conduct between the sexe
public parks and on public sti
and again I thanked God that t
was a spot down in dear old I
where such things were not seen,
day by day, I find in Augusta
A.tlanta, wherever I go, that
same loose spirit is traveling arc
Dr. Charles C. Jarrell, pastoi
St. John's M. E. Chuch, South
told his congregation Sunday m
ing. The pastor handled his sub
of present day immorality and c
in a plain, unglossed manner. He
cried the present fashions and as
pointedly what is the world con
The pastor of St. John's took as
subject, "A revival or a revolutic
basing his text on the idea that c
a great moral awakening that s!
arouse deep, moral convictions 1
be able to arrest' the evil tendeni
of our times and check the wild r
toward folly and extravagant and
treme fashions; the excitement
making money fast and other pe
that threaten our life today.
"Revivals of religion in a bn
I sense have always made great epoi
in history, Bible movements reco
ed in the Bible and also criti
epochs in church history. The mo
ments that grew out of great reviv
affected were more permanent th
the rise and fall of dynasties and i
tions had done. English and Ame
can history in 200 years differ
from the French and German larg?
while Prussia had her Frederick t
Great, France her Voltaire, Engla
had her Wesley and the moi*al awa
ening of the 18th century.
"English and American types
Democracy have come, from the
moral awakenings under Wesley;
Endland and Edwards and others
America. Great revivals such as tl
had changed revolutions into pro
ress and had saved nations from tl
wild terrors such as the French re
olution knew and such as Russi:
Bolhsevbm had produced," said D
Four Signs of Revolution.
The pastor pointed out four sigi
of revolution in the present day.
1. Political reaction that is on u
recoiling from the spirit of idealisi
and humanity that so unified an
aroused the nation when we face
the common foe. The Congress ha
squandered that hour for the Ame:
2. We are in the back wash of th
war with its crime and immorality
its moral uncertainty and its defiane
of ancient standards of right an
3. Spirit of commercial speculatio;
that is abroad in the land threaten
ing to unsettle the moral stamina o
the nation. Fortunes made overnigh
are almost as demoralizing as a garni
of chance itself.
4. The fashions of the day are to<
full of folly and are so extravagan
and extreme, the spirit of reckles;
frolic and heedless rush after amuse
ments, are threatening to sweei
away all standards that would checl
the mad desire for some pleasure
which would break the gray monot
ony of life.
It was then that Dr. Jarrell told
his congregation of thc daring open
"love-making" and loose conduct be
tween the sexes that he had witness
ed during a tour of Italy and Euro
pean countries in 1912.
"The magazine writers are telling
us that in England the gay young
girls of certain classes, without moral
convictions and fretting over the
scarcity of men arising from the
slaughter of war, are turning life in
to a hunt for sinful pleasure. Thc
writers tell us that they are.making
married men their selfish mark. I
make no indictment against English
womanhood, I simply recite what I
am reading as news from England
and some of the troubles they are
"Another dangerous sign of the
times is certain hysteria resultant
doubtless as a reaction from the in
tensity and restraint feit by the na
tion during the war. Fads take the
day and sweep through thc land like
war crys of salvation. As for exam
ple, the revival of spiritualism, ouija
board monkeying and such like
Challenge to the Church.
"All these things constitute a chal
lenge to the Christian churches. The
biggest brains of the day in business
and in statesmanship on both sides
of the water are telling us that the
religion of the Lord, Jesus Christ,
fired with deep moral conviction and
building strong characters, is the
only force that can save us from Bol
shevism on the one hand, or the man
on horseback on the other. Such a
call has been sent out by Charles M.
Schwab, the steel king; Secretary
Daniels, President Hibben; Secre
tary Wilson, Editor Holt, Secretary
Lansing, Henry Van Dyke, Editor
Edmunds and others,
i "Is the church ready and able to
respond in this hour of need? There
are many wholesome signs and hope
ful tokens but her almost complete
lack of discipline makes it difficult
to rally her moral forces for an at
tack on vice, anarchy, infidelity and
"Protestantism has created an in
dividual spirit. This has been the
glory of democratic institutions, but
individual assertion without consci
entious restraint borne out of faith
in God may lead to license in religion
just as the same may lead to license
Bolshevism in politics.
"Our church leaders have warned
our people against covetousness in
men and worldliness in women and
folly in fashion. Great conventions
and conferences have set the stan
dard high but, the individual church
member goes his or her own, sweet
way, caring not a thrip for it all.
This is the great weakness today of
our Protestant churches. Each Amer
ican boy is entitled to a father who
fears God, believes in the truth and
has something in him to feed the
boy's fondness for a hero. Each
American boy is entitled to a mother
the wife of one husband, unless the
first is under the sod, who does not
drink or smoke or gamble and who
knows how to dress herself and who
dances, if at all, only with her close
kin," said Dr. Jarrell in concluding.
Big Touring Cars Get to Au

Pierce-Arrow, carnying 34 passen

On the trip to this city the pilgrims
