Familiarities of Waltz and

Morally Bad,- Says Rev.

Failures, Not Nearly So
Good as Golf, Tennis or
Even Croquet.
tty Nixola Grcclcy-Smith.
Tho very last tlmo I danred a ono-
Mcp and my partner tramped on my
loot my eonscienco begun o hurt me,
as it nlwnyu doe.s
on such occasions,
lji I thought
olMiut Miriam, sis.
ter of Moses and
Aaron, dancing
on tho banks of
tho Hed Sen, nnd
was reassured. If
Miriam danced, 1
said to myself,
you n a o d n ' t
i
worry. It must
bo quite, all rlplit.
Hut It was not, Just tho sumo. For
tho Itnvorend Joseph W. Kemp of
Calvary Baptist Church, who
preached last Sunday on "Tho I.tblcs
of tho Dnnce," declares that all mod
ern dancing Is sinful and that there,
Is no Uso going to tho Hilda for Justi
fication of It, bccatiso though
fiourcu the good book from cover to
cover you will not find In it a slnglo
ItiMaucu In uhlch both ooxob united
In dancing either for worship or for
amusement.
Dr. Kemp, who Is preaching a e-
lies of M-rmons jn modem sins, Is
piepailng the way of Hilly .Sunday In
.Now York. A week ago ho exhorted
his congiegutlon In tho great gray
church In West Fifty-seventh .Street
on "The Tragedy of tho Theatre." an
institution of sin
This wenk ho devoted his pownrs of
denunciation to tho modern round
dance, and net Hundav he will ex
pound "The Curtn of tho Card Ta
ble." From which you may gather
that If you uro looking for a templo
of good old-fashioned heavy theolog
you need tint fenreh lurther than
Oalvniy Haptlst Church.
THE DEGENERACY OF THE
DANCE IN 150 YEARS.
Dr. Kemp was called to Saw York
from a Scottish parish several years
ngo and no moio Clod 'fearing, ear
nest domlulo thuu ho can bu found In
tho pages of Stevenson or Walter
Seott. He believes every word ho
preaches, and such Is tho forco of his
personality that few pet sons can
listen to one of his sermons without
agreeing with him.
"Thero nro two kinds of dances,"
Dr. Kemp told me yestorday In his
study. "In any discussion of this
subject wo must dcllne. You ask tho
question, 'Do you consider dancing
wrong?' I reply, 'What kind of danc
ing?' The danco of polilo society of
15ii years ago is no moro llko the
danco of to-day than tho old stage
e.nnch Is Hue a is;yiiniipr nutomo
bile. Dancing covers a wldo range of
moral conduct, ns 'transportation
covers various mothods of locomotion
but ther is a dinereneo. Tiioro is no
similarity as to social and physical
privileges granted between tho stato-
i
(bayerJI
I I'll II 111 lZaJ 11 V- I
ly minuet of tho seventeenth century
and tho umbraco and Intertwining ot
tho bodies of tho 'roUnd' danco of to
day. Tho declluo can easily bo traced
thiuugh recent years through tho
minuet, through tho 'square,' dance,
through tho waltz nnd now 'two
step,' which hns been characterized
recently aa a hideous und rowdy
sbunio.'
".Many people defend dancing from
tho Hlhln, but this betrays a dogreo of
Ignoranco and stupidity bordering on
sacrilege. No Instances of dancing
aro found In tho Hlblo In which two
sexoH iinlto In tho dxi-rclsQM eltlmr in
or out of worship or as nn umuso
ment. "Mttlo can bn said for tho valuo
of dancing ns nn exercise," Dr. Kemp
continued. "It Is recognized on ovcry
hand that sohools of physical culture
far mirpass tho schottlscho nnd th
vnllz for this purpose, and tho exer
cise of tho gymnasium, tho croquet
groen. tennis court and golf give
Physical development Ar surpassing
tho ballroom.
THE "OUTRAGEOUS LIBERTIES"
PERMITTED.
"Dancing masters nil over tho
country hnvo denounced tho license
of present day (. uicl g. it Is con
trary to the moral law. No man hns
any moral or social liberties granted
t to blni with women on or off tho
niiiico noor, ami surely thero is somo.
thing radically wrong with any
amusement wherein ethical princi
ples so rapidly disappear 113 is tho
case In Hie dance,
"Wc aie told it In necessary for
proper dancing that tho gentleman
Hhoiild place bis. right arm gently and
carefully about tho lady's waist whllo
he takes tho lady'H right hand In his
left, his left arm should i)0 extended
and held in a gracetul eurvo lialf way
between the lady's waist aild Mhoul
der. Tho only excuse for nuch cOur
ageous liberties Is inuslo and motion,
and this, forsooth, makes right and
pioper what under othor clrcum
Htunces would bo indignantly resent
ed except In close contldentlal family
relations. Omit tho music and mo
Hon and so called society would not
condone tho net for ono moment.
Surely what Is ethically wrong off the
dance floor cannot bo ethically right
on It."
Sow, before we proceed further, If
you have any doubt that what hap.
pens uii t)u danco Moor Is wrong,
ponder tho description of tho jound
dance as It appears to Dr. Kemp und
then ask yuursclf, as I have asked
myself, how wo could possibly havo
been so foolish as to havo all this In
iquity going on around us without
gi Ulng a single solitary thrill from
It, Hero 1 have been concentrating all
my energies mid thoughts on watch
ing my step and keeping my elbow
out of my neighbor's ribs and not lot
ting my French heels skid on a newly
wa.ved ttoor when nil tho tlmo I might
havo reveled in U.icchnnallan bliss.
You, too. If yon don't bellovo It
hearken to Dr. Kemp's description rf
dancing, as ho was onco condemned
to witness it on Hoard an ocean linn
when the only way to escape such
iniquity was by leaping- into tho sea.
MODERN DANCE A SIGN OF DE
GENERACY IN MAN.
"Wo havo Bomctlmes been com
pelled to witness on board ship the
utter abandon of a young, beautiful
woman to tho gleaming eyo of her
partner. Ills breath breathing upon
