MINISTER SAYS "GREAT"! UlbrUbll lON
Ever attend a "Mixer."
Well Pilgrim Congregational church is going to have one to
night and they are going to mix up college students and young
men and women of the neighborhood and wrestling matches and
ragtime with good old fashioned religion..
Some of the deacons are shocked at the Rev. K. C. Wheeler
for announcing regular wrestling matches in the church. Fast is
the grapplers are going to go to the mat right on the pulpit
rostrum.
"Why not," says Rev. Mr.
Wheeler. "I believe in athletics
and clean sports, and I believe
in religion. Religion and athle
tics ought to go hand in hand.
If the athletics can't stand re
ligion it Indicates athletics need
cleaning up and If religion can't
stand athletics It Indcates the re
ligion is too weak to be much ac
count.
"I want religion and athletics
that will be strong and clean and
something that will appeal to the
young people, both boys and
girls." • ■
At the "Mixer" tonight both
boys and girls will be welcome.
It is probably the first wrestling
match in Tacoma where young
ladles have attended freely.
Rev. Mr. Wheeler thinks it will
not hurt them a bit. In fact he
wants them to become alive to
things of today and assist in
making athletics clean.
In addition to the wrestling
there will be other games and
contests and plenty of songs and
other Interesting features.
The Mixer is the first of a
series of meetings to last three
days In which the University of
Washington students will domi
nate the program at the church.
