ON THE DANCE
Rev. 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
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
