Sunday Meetings
At the meeting for boys and men held
at the Unitarian church Sunday after
noon cards were distributed with pledges
signed as follows: Accept Jesus Christ as
my Savior and Leader, 71; to unite with
the church, 22; to teach a Bible class, 10;
to carefully consider Christian service as
a life work, 39; to do personal work, 35;
to read the Bible and pray daily, 39; to
give up some bad habit, 28.
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

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

j The Unitarian Conference
In its Fifty-Eighth Annual Session in Bel
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.

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.

B. H. S. Commencement Week.
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.

A. Trask were married at 9 a. m. June

Belfast’s New Bridge.
The Frank D. Hazeltine Post of the

Govern lent to lend its influence to have
the new concrete bridge across Belfast
harbor dedicated in honor of the boys of
Waldo County who lost their lives in the
recent war.
In order that the City Government may
act in conformity with the opinion of the
majority of the citizens of Belfast, it is
requested that any who would object to
the bridge being thus dedicated shall
send in their objections and the reason
for them at the earliest possible moment.
The opi lion of the City Government is
that such a dedication would be fitting
and proper, but in order that those of a
contrary mind may have the opportunity
of expressing their view point, we are
making the above request.
