'The State Journal was unable to get
in-'touch with President L'M. Penwell
of the 'state board of education today.
He was too ill to talk, but F. G. Dren
ning, -member of the board, declared
the Ministerial union rather premature
In its condemnation, saying, "We
should have been given an opportun
ity to pass on such, alleged practices
first." Drenning denied that "dances
nor anything like them goes on at the
high school functions in the school
buildings," but he admitted that "at a
gonoral party given some time last
year an impromptu dance was held, ,
presumably with the permission of Su
perintendent Stout, who was faced at
the party with a request for such per
mission. - -

could not say what attitudethe board
would take regarding the criticism of

Dance Sermon Sunday Arouses
Educational Official.
Lor) man Congregation Ap-
pruyes of Condemnations,
City Scored for Allowing "Open
Town" to 35th Reunion.
The board of education today re
fused to make any formal reply, to the
statement made by the Rev. H. O.
Hniter in a- sermon' Sunday night at
the I.owman Memorial M. S. churcn
to the- effect that "we can not expect
to get the proper moral atmosphere
in the Topeka high school as long as
the home atmosphere is what it is ana
stiffs' on the board of education."
H. W. Bomgardner, prertiJcnt of tSe
board, refused to comment.
Frank" G. Denning, a member of
the board,, said the Rev.. Mr. Holter
would "be afraid to come down to a
meeting of the board and make the
statements he made in' his sermon.
'Let him come down and say those
things and see-what we do to him,"
was Drenning's comment. 1
"Dance To Bo Popular.'"
r. Doctor Holter, in his sermon, dwelt
on the fact that the atmosphere of
the modern home did not start the
children on the right road. More at
tention should be- paid to refined
amusements instead of commercial
ones, he said. He did not blame the
schools, he said, as much as the
homes. The -boy and girl of today, he
declared, thought they had to dance
when they entered high school in
order to be popular. He also scored
the public" dance hall.
A slap was taken at A. J. Stout, su
perintendent of schools, when Doctor
Holter declared, "When such a change
is made in the board of education pos
sibly then we can get a superintendent
who- does not express- regret that he
did not learn to dance when a boy."
Stout refused to answer Doctor Hol
ter's remarks.
The congregation applauded loudly
chruout the minister's sermon on danc
ing and cries of "amen" - were heard
all over the church.
Doctor Holter also, condemned the
Topeka city government for throwing
the city wide open to the members of
the Thirty-fifth division during the
recent reunion. "Gambling is gam
bling whether done by soldiers or any
one, else," -he said, "and it was a re
flection on the soldiers for the city to
declare Topeka 'wide open' during
their stay here.' -

Indian Oil Magnate's Marriage

Settles Disturbance Started
Several Months Ago.
Jackson Barnett, aged Indian oil
magnate and his pale-face bride. are
happily married. That is the conclu
sion of Judge A. M. Jackson of Win
field, In a report to the supreme court
in the suit to set aside the wedding.
Several months ago there was a big
disturbance in the federal department
of the interior When it was reported
that Anna Laurie Lowe had kidnapped
Barnett from his farm In Oklahoma,
taken hjm to CoffeyviUe, Kansas, and
married him. It was alleged that the
woman fled with Barnett in order to
gain possession of his property. Carl
O. O'Hornet went before the Kansas
supreme court in an application for an
order setting aside the Indian-paleface
wedding and returning Barnett to
the custody of the Oklahoma court.
luumaa vuuri, However, reiuseu
to be hasty in annulling the Indian's
wedding. So they appointed Judge
Jackson as commissioner to take testi
mony in the case. The guardian 'Vvas
also ordered to . provide money with
which Barnett's bride might fight for
her rights and enable the newly weds
to live happily during the proceedings.
In his report today Judge Jackson
states that Barnett and his wife have
removed to the Indian's farm in Okla
homa. - Both sides, he reports, have
agreed not to cause further disturb
ances. As soon as the guardian pro
vides sufficient funds for costs Judee
Jackson urges that the action now
pending in the court be dismissed.
Invites Woman to Use Count v
Jailer's Bath Room.
Because Hattie Graham took a bath
Sunday, Paul Lewis, a trusty at the
county jail, is once more locked in a
cell and Robert O. Garrod, jailer, has
a black eye. . .
According to Garrod's story, he was
out to dinner when Paul Lewis invited
theH3raham woman to go to Garrod's
private bath room and take a bath.
He. procured the keys from a deputy
sheriff and locked her Jn the bath
room, then locked her in Irer cell
again when she had completed her
ablutions. When Garrod returned
from lunch and called for the keys
he was told, that Lewis had them.
Garrod declares that the Graham
woman has a social disease and it did
not set well with, him to have her
bathing in his private tub. He cen
sured Lewis for taking so much lib
erty. "One word brought . on another,"
said Garrod: "I told Lewis three dis
tinct times to leave the office but ne
refused. At lasthe left and returnees.
He came to the window where I was
sitting and struck me in the eye. A
ring he was wearing cut my eye. So I
PUt hirn right back in a cell. He has
been taking too much liberty lately.
Putting Hattie Graham up -to taking
a bath in my own tub, I think, was
spite work. He had no right to do it."
Lewis was sentenced to six months
in the county, jail for stealing a Buick
automobile from the Wood Motors
company. His sentence will expire
next Saturday. Garrod said he did not
intend to ha.ve a warrant -sworn for
Lewis. '
