Mearl C. Smith anounces that, beginning fcunday night, he will de liver a series of sermons on the sub joct of the dance. It is a well known fact that the Methodist church has al ways been bitterly opposed to dancing and in former years no one would think of identifying himself with the Methodists unless he renounced this practice. The discipline of the church is very plain on this point and al though many people including a etoud of dancing masters petitioned the last general conference to remove the ban of (lancing, the rules of the church still stand. Rev. Mr. Smith maintains that it not an arbitrary rule to keep young people from enjoying life, but is based on the mo.-t fundamental laws of the Bible and the moral universe, and thnt those who break this law, must suiter me natural reaction wiucn is certain to follow. When the sin of dancing is men tioned, Mr. Smi'.h says, many young people will ask questions such as these: What harm is there in dancing? Does r.ot the B ble say, "there's a time to dance?'' Did not David dance? It is not possible to answer these questions in a sentence, so they will be answered in a series of Sunday night addresses. The first of these, next Sunday night at the Methodist church, will answer the question, "Why Is It Wrong to Dance?" This will be followed by a sermon on "The Dance of Death." Rev. Mr. Smith promises to bring ample evidence to show that dancing more than any other amusement is detrimental to one's highe. t develop ment, and is the largest cause of moral corruption which the present age knows. Everyone is invited to attend this series of sermons, but a special invitation is extended to young people and parents of young people or child it n.

A literary program was given at thf Fainiew church Thursday evening of this week, the program including : a . number of songs, readings, dialogues and musical selections. The regular right for the event was Friday of this week, but as a number in the neighbor hood are coming to Alliance this even ing for a meeting with labor unionists at the Baptist church, it was decided to hold the program earlier in the week. There was a large crowd pres ent and standing room was at a prem ium before the evening was over. A Valentine social has been an nouned for the Fairview church for Thursday evening of next week. The affair will be on the order of a "corni valentine supper" and is expected to provide considerable amusement. The Knights of Columbus held a card party at their club rooms Thurs day night, about eighty attending. The ladies were requested to bring box lunches and a pleasant evening was enjoyed.

Is that the reason why so many of them are quitters and will not join the Am erican Legion to help their helpless buddies?" "The father of a buck private,' writing in the Douglas County Legion naire, states his opinions with force and vigor. "A soldier who will not join the American Legion is a quitter,' he says. "From the last pood-bye at the sta tion, on through the homesickness of the camps, through the dayf when 'broke' was the common finan cial condition, over in the jammed shins to France; through the days and nights in the trenches; there grew up a new affection of hian for man . "My Buddy. Fdr him the sky was the limit. The last cigarette would be out fifty-fifty with him . Lives were risked in No Man's Land for him. To the fathers back home this beauti ful new sentiment of buddyhood be tween four million young men meant protection for America from all it ills, Then came the organization of the American Legion. "But what had come over the soldier loys who went through the hell ir France? It looks to me as though the Huns had whipped all the fight out of them. Too many of them refuse tc join the legion. They have laid down cold and refuse to lend a hand to the wrecks of the war who are in 'No Man's Land' in America today. The victims of tubercu'osis, the mental wrecks, the crippled boys, the out of work unfortunates in this country need the help of their buddies more now than during the war, because then we were all willing to do things for the soldiers. Now that our lives and property are safe we are tired of hearing about the fellows who did the fighting. "But is that the excuse for the sol diers who came out able-bodied and in good shape? If the Huns whipped all the fight ut of them we are willing to accept the decision and overlook their quitting, just the same as we would humor a soldier made mentally de ficient by the hell he went through over there."
