SHALL DANCES BE HELD?
SPARTANS NOW ASKING
Proposed "Exposleon Dances" Causes
V(orous )Controversy in Spartan.
1S9artanburg, March 20.-Shall the
so't music of .the orchestra, the bril
liant lights of the ball .room, and thu
light, fantastic step / and the jazz be
barred from Spartanburg?
That is the question -which today
has stirred from one end to 'the other
the "City of Success".
Only a mpnth atfer Billy Sufiday
closed a six -week revival, and before
the tabernacle Is torn away, t'he 20,
000 persons who reside here find them
'selves face to face with this iproblem.
Many Iersons, recalling Mr. Sunday's
Temaiiks nbout the moral effect ' of
dancing, are bitterly opposing the danc
es which -it is proposed to hold here.
Others assort that there is no reason
why the youth of Spa-rtanburg should
'be denied partiipation in 'this pastime.
It all came about overnight, so to
speak, and the pinnacle was reached
Sunday morning when the members "of
the Bethel Mlethodist church of this
city, after a .brief but interesting dis
cussion, wvent on record as oiposing
the dances -to be held this t'eek and
which have been advertised as the
A lengthy communication aplyeared
in the morning news)aper of Spartan
iburg this morning, signed by three well
known members of the Bethel church,
all of whom are prominent in the pro
fessional and business life of Sparwtak
-burg. In the same issue there appear
ed a )aid advertisemen-t, inserted by
some interested persons, presumably
those who had lead the opposition to
the dances, calling upon the fathers
and mothers of Spartanburg to prevent
thc - daughters from attending the
In the advertisement mention was
smade of the recent meetings held here
by Mlr. Sunday and the insinuation, if
not the direct statement, was made that
it would be almost a sacrilege for the
city to so soon forget the teachings of

Meanwhile! plans for the dante
continue.- Three evenings this week,
while' the thousands attend' the 'Pled

position, only a few blocks away, the
youth of Spartanburg and neighboring
cities will make merry on the 'ball room
floor of a local hotel. A Columba or
chestra, engaged for this particular
occasion, -will furnish the inspiration
for the dancers to gracefully glide ov
er the ball room floor. The spirit of
youth .shall not -be quenched; the de
sire to find exvression in dance for
the %iusical side of one's nature shall
not 'be forbidden, say those who are
promoting the dances.
- HIowever, the Spartanburg Chamber
of Commerce, which is .promoting its
exposition, is not behind the dances,
it was stated today by 'E. B. Walker,
scoretary of the trade :body. Mr. Walk
cr stated thdt the dances were to be
held at a local hotel, an out of the city
orchestra was to furnish the music and
the Chamber of Commerce was in no
way resiponsible for the dances or the
name "Exposition dances."
