The open meeting Sunday evening in the Methodist church was brim full and running over with enthusiasm and life, which comes only with hearty co-opera tion of all concerned. The platform was filled with men and boys taking part, and the singing, led by Joseph Paquette, was a pleasing feature. President Young pre sided and encouraging remarks were made by the pastors, heads of committees and by the delegates. Jelf Smith was given a welcome, the attention and love only boys can make apparent. His closing address had thoughts parents would like to have their boys listen to ana remem ber. The same is true of the addresses of the other visiting Y. M. C. A. secretaries, Wilfred J. LaPoint of Springvale and H. E. Dodge of Fall River, Mass. Mr. Smith congratulated Belfast in having in its teaching force men of Christian charac ters and interest in boys. The closing of the evening program was a novel one, as the boys and their leaders formed a com plete circle around the large auditorium and with clasped hands said their good bys in a ringing chorus and in song and prayer.

At the business meeting Saturday : morning in the Baptist church practical ly every delegate was present and not one left the room from 8 a. m. to 12. Troop Three of the Boy Sccuts were ; conference escorts. There was more than enough homes j offered for the boys entertainment and i from many who entertained have come the best of reports of their guests. The I question of finance was easily met. The handling of about 200 boys meant. real work, but it was done by such ef- j licient committees that it was made a [ pleasure rather than a task. The expies- ; sion was often heard, "we are glad to do ; our part.” Members of the committees have al ready received letters from the parents thanking them for the splendid entertain ment given their sons and also for the good thoughts they have brought home with them. j Anyone having unpaid bills for the i convention are requested to send them to : M.

The opening session of the fifty-eighth annual Maine Conference of Unitarian ' churches was held Monday evening with the First Parish church in this city. There were twenty-five delegates includ ; ing many of the ministers. The devo tional service was led by Rev. Dwight, F. Mowery of Houlton, who spoke briefly on vital arid formal religions. Mayor Clement W. Wescott extended the wel come of the city to the conference mem bers with his characteristic cordial but brief manner, leaving not the slightest doubt of his sincerity of purpose and un bounded pride in Belfast and her people. Hon. William P. Whitehouse, L.L D., the conference president, responded. From frequent visits here he could testify to the truth of Mayor Wescott’s assertions as to the city and its citizens and sug j gested that the delegations wuuld soon I know for themselves. President White house’s address dealt with religion in business, private and church life and was in fact a logical solution of many of the dilficult questions the present day churches are facing and must solve. He also made fair and frank assertions of the relations of the church to politics, the labor questions and cardinal moral issue*, not only of the church, but of the home. The laymen’s movement and its influence is already felt in : the vital life of the church. Presi dent Whitehouse called upon Rev. A. R. Scott, Ph. D. of Bangor and ex pressed the Conference regret of losing so popular and valuable a member. Mr. Scott spoke of the First Parish building, now 103 years old, and its life and church history with promise of a brighter future. He styled Judge Whitehouse’s address a very finished sermon and agreed with his thoughts. In speaking of a recent ad dress given before the Bangor Rotary Club his real regretful impression of the city that had been his home for 14 years, was that her young men were constantly leaving her as soon as their education was completed. He hoped this would not be the fact over Maine, particularly in the farming districts, as it would be a question hard to cope with. Mr. Scott is a great favorite in Belfast and always welcome here. 1 uesday morning the following officers were elected: President, Hon. Wm P. Whitehouse, LL.D , Augusta; Vice Presidents, James H. Howes, Belfast; Guy H. Hersey, Ban gor; Secretary-Treasurer. Rev. Paul S. Phalen, Augusta; Executive Committee, lion. Leslie C. Cornish, LL.D., Augusta; Rev. Joel H. Metcalf, Ph.D., Portland; Hon. Geo. A. Emery, Saco; Rev. Dwight F. Mowery, Houlton; Mr. Eliot Rogers, Kennebunk; Mr. Walter C. Nutter, San ford. Officers of the Maine Unitarian Asso ciation: President, Mr. Elmer T. Roberts, Saco; Vice President, Hon. Charles F. Johnson, Portland; Secretary, Hon. Norman L. Bassett, Augusta; Treasurer, Mr. Edward D Noyes, Portland; Auditor, Mr George S. Hobbs, Portland; Finance Committee, Hon. Leslie C. Cornish, Mr. Hiram L. Pishon, Augusta; Hon. George A. Emery, Saco. Maine Branches of the National Alli ance: Mrs. Paul S. Phalen, Augusta, Di rector for Central Maine. Resolutions were passeiTTaVoring cen sorship of moving pictures for this State and a conference of leading nations for reduction of armaments. After the morning business session Rev. Minot O. Simons, Church Extension Sec retary of Boston, outlined the nature of his new office, and stated that this fall it was the plan to launch a membership campaign. He discussed many problems pertaining to the Maine conference. Mrs Ulara Bancroft Beatley of Boston then gave a fine talk on wfiat the Women’s Alliance can do to assist the Sunday school. Reports of the different branches represented were made by ladies from the respective societies. At noon a delicious luncheon was served in Memorial hall, in charge of the hospitality committee of the Belfast Alliajice, Mrs. Charles R. Coombs, chairman. The address of the afternoon was by Rev. Maxwell savage of Worcester, who for an hour held the attention cf delegates with a very prac tical discussion of Unitarianism today, not in the past or in the future, empha sizing the need of free pews, every mem ber canvass, an effective church mem bership method. At four o’clock seven autos took the out-of-town delegates for rides about the city. In the evening the Rev. Joel H. Metcalf of Portland, one of tne Unitarian commissioners sent to Iransylvania last year, told an interest ing story of his trip and conditions as he found them there, showing the hardships suffered by the people of that land long noted for religious freedom, under the new rule of their heredity enemy, the Rumanians. The conference was one of the most helpful and interesting ever held by the Maine Unitarian churches with about 75 delegates present. THE UNIVERSAL CAR New Prices Effective at Once.

The baccaleaurate sermon for the sen ior class of the Belfast High school was given at the Universalist church last Sunday morning, when even standing room was occupied. The decorations were under the direction of the Juniors and were very effective, the color scheme be ing the senior colors of gold and white. Suspended over the altar was the class motto, “Love, Labor and Laugh” in gold letters on white. The flowers included buttercups, lilies and roses. The entire centre section was reserved for the school, the seniors’ seats marked with paper garlands of gold and white, the juniors’ with green and white, the soph omores with purple and orange and the freshmen’s with green and yellow. The entire school marched in led by class marshals and followed by their teachers. It was a very forceful example of the B. H S.’s increasing efficiency and popular ity. Anothor interesting feature noted was the large number of out of town pu pils in the school. Music was furnished by Miss Katherine E. Brier, Miss Edna Hopkins, Messrs. Earl L. Talbot and Har old S. McKeen, with Mrs Thomas E. Bowker, organist. Rev. Wm. Vaughan preceded his discourse with words of commendation for the Boys’ Convention and a public explanation as to why the church was not opened for their occu pancy Saturday morning. All the dele gates present must have been perfectly satisfied with his remarks. After greet ing the special guests lie took for his fatherly talk to the students the appro priate text of “1 set before you an open door and no man can shut it.” He urged the care of the body, the mind and the spirit. Physical exercise was needed to care for the body, the tabernacle of the spirit, and in order for the spirit of hope, faith and progress to live the body must be trained as well as the mind. In this instance he sighted the development of that most wonderful American citizen— , Theodore Roosevelt. Then came whole- \ some advice which the students will i ever forget. He said never plan to re tire, never think you have attained all you can, have faith to live and help live. Never plan to inherit wealth, but know that the motto on the dollar, “In God we trust.” If the dollar is earned honestly it will be a credit, if not a curse. He closed with Kipling’s “If” and read it with its fullest meaning. Monday morning the class planted a handsome maple tree on the upper school common and dedicated it to the memory of the late Mrs taverett A. Banks, a for mer teacher of the Commercial Depart ment, and a general favorite, who died about a year ago. The program included a prayer by Rev. C. W. Martin; reading. Miss Louise G. Clark; vocal duet, Misses Idres Rogers and Mildred Heald;remarks, Bartlett J. Whiting; music by the school and quartet. The regular graduation takes place in the Armory Wednesday evening, the i class banquet in the Baptist vestry Thursday at 6 p. m., followed by a ball in I the Armory. MARRINER-TRASK Winfield A.
