' SAYS IMMORALITY
Cleveland, April 11. In a report
read and discussed by the child wel
fare department 'of the Cleveland
Federation of Women's Clubs, Su
perintendent of Schools R. C. Jones
said immorality is the greatest men
ace of the public school today; that
w are fast drifting toward free love
in this country; that the mothers
of the nantion are not making good
on the jobs and that dancing In
Cleveland schools will be barred en
tirely, unless It Is conducted as a
wholesome pleasure and entertain
ment for school pupils.
"Indifference on the part of par
ents toward the activities of their
children is one of the great prob
lems In immorality," Mr. Jones' re
port continued. "It is tip to the
women and mothers to set higher
standards of morality and home life.
Uunless there is a greater feeling of
morality I fear the community and
nation will drift toward free love."
The condition In Cleveland's high
schools, Supt. Jones asserted, was
particularly, aggravated by the ex
treme dressing on the part of many
girls, by night riding In automobiles
and by "close" dancing at school
"Too many young people are
dressing beyond their means. Silk
hosiery, low-necked waists, short
skirts, rouge and powder should be
tabooed by school girls," the report
