PRESBYTERIES SCORE MODERNIST TEACHING Charge Taint Has Crept Into For eign Missions and Some American Colleges. DEMAND IT BE STAMPED OUT Overtures Presented at Session of General Assembly. By the Associated Press. SAX ANTONIO. Tex., May IT.—From far-off China today came an echo of the fundamentalist-modernist contro versy to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church In the United States in session here. “A taint of modernism" was alleged to have crept into the foreign mis sion field. The charge came from the presbytery of Central Mississippi, which presented an overture passed at its annual meeting at Louisville. Miss. It is referred to the commit tee on foreign relations before the assembly recessed over Sunday to re sume deliberations Monday. Ilrmrd)- for Sin. Sin has caused the world’s needs, the overture states, adding that some churches differ as to what that need is and the remedy for it. Enun ciating the doctrine of the Presby terian Church that “ a crucified and risen Lord" is the only remedy for the need, the Central Mississippi Presbytery asked that the denomina tion withdraw from co-operative mis sion work with churches that do not believe in this fundamental. Referring to an investigation ordered by General Assembly into the church's missions in China, the- overture states: •‘ln the light of what that investi gation has revealed as set forth in the report of the investigating com mittee of the North Kiangsu Mission (China! and from information derived from the press, and because of the dangers threatening evangelical doctrines from what is called the modernistic movement, this pres-by tcry overtures the assembly to direct its executive committee of foreign missions to withdraw from any and all institutions in China which do not recognize the Bible as divinely inspired and the only infallible rule of faith and practice, the diety of Christ, His vicarious atonement and the other essential doctrines of evangelical religion, and further that this committee be directed to give no financial support in any way, to any institutions whose doctrinal teachings may not at any time be investigated by properly authorized representatives of our church." Fight on Modernism. in other overtures the same attitude is reflected. The Presbytery of Kana wha. W. Va., asks that the assembly withdraw its support "from all union colleges, universities, theological seminaries and other union educa tional institutions where modernism is being taught," and that "no money given by* the church for foreign mis sions should go either directly or in directly into the dissemination of in jurious infidel ideas among the heathen.” This presbytery demands with drawal of not only "objectionable teachers,” but objectionable text books from the foreign seminaries. The Presbytery of Lexington, Ky., asks that this whole matter be re ferred to a commission for thorough investigation with power either to take, action or report to the next Gen eral Assembly. The assembly proceeded to a revi sion of many sections of the church law contained in the hook of church order and had completed about half this task when adjournment was taken over the week end. Among the revisions was one de claring the present form of gov ernment of the presbytery more Dnties of Deacons. Duties of deacons were definitely outlined to include the collection and administration of the offerings of the 1 people for the relief of those in need and for the work of the church. Drastic change in church organiza tion was made by the assembly with the adoption of a paragraph which reads: "A church may be organized only by the authority of the presbytery, which may proceed with its organi zation through direct procedure or through a commission or an even gelist to whom the church has in trusted the power to organize churches.” This revision produced much dis cussion, as some believed that the power of the evangelist to organize churches should be limited, while others took the stand that if it were not for tlie evangelists organizing churches there would not be as many congregations now as -records show. Definition of the rights of the moderator were outlined by the as sembly in its adoption of a para graph amending the existing rule and stating that the moderator may change the time and place of the court in stated meetings.

Manhattan Days and Nights; By HERBERT COREY ( Copyright, HtJ-i, by Herbert Corey ) NEW YORK, May 17. —Some one brought the news uptown. “A new place has been opened in the village.” The village is an old story nowadays, but we planned a party. T .t was a drizzling, rainy night. The lights of Broadway were reflected from the shining asphalt. Policemen in black raincoats were shifting cars on every corner as magicians do cards. The other fellow waited in the stage door alley for his girl. At intervals pretty women pushed past the stage doorman and tiptoed out to waiting cabs. The prettiest girl of the lot came out of the stage door and took my friend’s arm. The girl wanted to watch Mazie. Mazie, in evening dress, slippers that were merely high heels held on with straps, carrying a suit case, teetered under the overhang, watching the street. “She’s always bragging about her dates,” said the girl. The meter clicked. The other fellow grew impatient and the cabman resignedly lighted a cigarette. Mazie balanced out to the curb on her high heels and looked both ways. Then she angrily hailed a cab. The other fellow’s girl said we might as well go on to the village. “That makes three times Mazic’s been stood up this week,” she said, with satisfaction. Down in village the cab halted in front of the new signboard o:> which are electric lighted the nairu of the all-night resorts. Behind crept a long line of other cabs, e;, in its turn halting at the signboaru "Dots the manager know you?" asked the doorman of the new re sort. The other fellow said he didn’t know the manager. He tried to climb back in the cab but the door man stopped him. “Go on in.” ho said. "Tou’re ail right.” His job was not to turn away customers. An old-time house of Greenwich Village had been transformed by colored hangings, colored lights, blue and yellow paint. Half a dozen girls in low-cut gowns sat around the walls and hummed as the three-piece orchestra played. The cover charge was $2 and tin highballs cost |1 each. On one of the benches along the walls sat a middle-aged man and a girl of sixteen or thereabouts, both in evening dress. “Kiss me,” she pleaded with him. "Aw. please, kiss me." "Shut up," said he. ** * * A girl who had a good voice sang a French song in a middle west ac cent. She was pretty but tired. A too fat girl in a gown too low sang an Irish song without even a sug gestion of Ireland. Still, it had some thing about mother. Mother Is sure fire stuff in the village. So is home. The middle-aged man with the kiss able kid on the side bench applauded frantically. The fat girl winked at him. The poor little kid turned her shoulder for a moment. There seem ed tears in her eyes. Then she put her arms around his ntek. “Please.” said she, "take me home. I’m tired." “Shut up,” said the middle-aged man. A girl in a black mask and a few black ribbons—otherwise perfectly naked—writhed out on the floor. The other fellow's girl watched her with interest. Then — "Why," she whispered, "I know her. She learned stage dancing where X did." • The naked girl writhed more expres sively. “She didn't learn that," said the stage dancer. “Not where I was taught.” Squaw Dance for Worrier Dead Greets BobbecbHair Palefaces Tomahawking the Hair Has Sacred Meaning to Aborigines, Expressing Grief for Fate of Lovers in Battle . Sometimes there is conflict in cus toms. What is religious to otje mind may be ridiculous to another, and vice versa. This was amusingly demon strated, according to the department of Indian affairs, by an incident on the Glacier National Park reserva tion, where a crowd of tourists had gathered to watch the last Inde pendence day tribal dance of the Blackfeot. Tomahawking the hair by Indian ma.idens was done many moons be fore the rouge-tinted paleface girl ever thought of bobbing hers to be fashionable. But the Indian misses chopped off their locks in grief when their lovers were killed in battle. Having this imprinted on their minds as an act of mourning, it naturally caused a feeling of sympathy among a bevy of squaws gathered for the. tribal celebration when they noticed so many white girls with short hair among the tourist spectators as sembled. Assuming that every bobbed head was for a lover in the world war. the Indian women "out of respect for the departed paleface warriors,” in an impromptu manner ended their part of the program with the “squaw's dance for the ' warrior dead," always a very somber and impressive spectavle to the red men. Angers Western Man. To most of the white people gath ered around the rhythm of the dance movements furnished only comedy. The incident of this wasted soul spirit on the gods of fashion at the ex pense of the Indians rankled a west ern man among the spectators. Later, at the Glacier Park Hotel, for the in formation of bystanders, he gave an impressive interpretation of the "squaw’s dance for their warrior dead.” When the sacrilege dawned NOW PHOSPHORESCENT HAIR. Latest London Fad Launched. “Fish Always Follow a Light.” From tbe Argonaut. We have had women with tattooed faces and legs, women with sprays of forget-me-nots painted around their necks and down their bosoms, women with bracelets and anklets and arm lets and nose buttons and all the rest of it. Now we are threatened tfrith women with phosphorescent hair. And not bad, yea? The new craze appear# in London, at no less fashion able a tavern than the Savoy, where on the ballrooms recently burst the apparition of a beautiful creature whose hair was as luminous as a steamer track in tropical waters. To get just the right effect the lights had to be dimmed, but when condi tions were good it waa startling, not to say enchanting. The chief of the hairdressing salon at the Bavoy explained in part when appealed to. “The effect is produced by using a lotion containing some luminous property," he said. “To my knowledge it has not been used in London before. It is said to be harm less, and the effect la undoubtedly attractive. It does not reveal its presence except in total or semi darkness. In a very strong sun light, however, a faint purple sheen can bo detected If the hair is very dark.” It is understood that the owner of the glowing hair is an Italian countess who has been staying at tha Savoy. She threatens to start a new vogue among American and English women. At least, It seems reasonable to think she will; they say fish always follow a light. She Was Some Scrapper. From the Toronto Globe. Sam unfortunately had picked out an unusually combative helpmate. After three days of married life he returned to his Job looking some what wilted and woe-begone. His employer, knowing the circumstances, sought to joke with him. "Sam,” he said, seriously, “you look as if you’d been in a battle.” "To’ Jes’ bet Ah has, boss,” replied Sam, ruefully. ‘'But dat ain't de wuss of it. Ah pears to have gone and married mahself to the whole world 1 wah!” THE SUNDAY STAB, WASHINGTON, D. C., MAY 18, 1924-PART I. The stage dancer's mother had ao- I -ompanied her. Not as a chaperon, ’t because they kept house and in i way they evaded cooking the jc midnight meal. Mother was . d and yawned once or twjce. "What’s the matter with you?*’ snapped, her daughter. "Can’t you keep awake?" Another fat and lialf undressed girl sang about mother to the aocom l>animent of a whining fiddle. “I love that," said tho stage dan cer. “Ain't It sweet?” Several drunken people in evening dress began to dance on the little floor, that strummed beneath their feet like the sounding board of a gnltiv. One woman fell down. The fat girl joined live middle-aged man. The young girl with him whlspeted in his ear. "What do I care?" ho asked. "Walk!" She crossed the little dancing floor, a slender, immature figure in a mod est dancing gown. When she reap peared, in a coat of handkerchief tex ture and a lacy hat. the door opened. The light fell on gray lines of rain. The fat girl and the middle-aged man laughed together aa she wont out. *♦ * * » "Get the bill,” said the stage dan cer. "Let's see how hard we've been hooked." Pour covers at two dollars, eight dollars. Four sandwiches at one dol llar. twelve dollars. Eight highballs at one dollar, twenty dollars. Two dollar tip—which disappointed the Houston street waiter—twenty-two dollars. Hat tip, orchestra tip. door man tip. making a total of twenty four dollars. “Every time X come down here 1 say I’ll not be a sucker again.” said the stage danger. Mother remarked acrimoniously that It had not been i her daughter who had paid the bill. 1 The stage dancer .said she wished to j Gawd that mother had stayed home !in Missouri. Tho mother said that if I she had not spent all her money hav ing her daughter taught to dance she would not haVe to put up with that sort of talk. The sixteen-year-old girl shivered in a doorway nearby. "Liet's take her uptown,” said the good-natured dancer. "She got a dirty deal.” The mother vetoed that suggestion. She said the girl would 1 get us alt wet. on every one there wah a spontaneous outburst of Caucasian humor. Everybody laughed at what was re garded as a unique joke on the Amer ican Indians for this ludicrous mis take in thus eulogizing the great American horde of bobbed-hair femininity. This angered a serious-minded school teacher who nervously adjust ed the hairpins in her switch as she berated a group of giggling bobbed hair girls standing nearby jocularly ridiculing the Indian women. ‘T think it's Just to sacrilegious for anything!" she exclaimed. "I've a notion to tell those Indians the truth. If I do, they’ll scalp every bobbed head in Glacier Park, and it would serve them ail right, the friv olous things!” Kquaws Philosophical. But the »quaws didn't have any such savage inclination. They had more philosophy than the easterners, realized. For when the seeming joke was disclosed to them that the. white girls in bobbing hair merely wor shiped at the shrine, of the gods of fashion the Indian women only shrugged their shoulders, indicating disgust at the thought of such wide divergence from their sacred Idea of “tomahawking the hair." Rather a serious aspect has pre sented itself as a climax to the in cident, however, in the mind of the Indian agent. Many of the breed girls of the reservation, who are dis posed to tomahawk their hair, have consulted him as to the effect it may have on their social standing with the full bloods. For the sake of peace he advises against the prac tice not caring to risk an uprising among the "mixture of racest” which might result from the ostracism of breed girls by the full bloods over the difference of opinion as to whether tomahawking the hair la a "grave or frivolous” custom. COURTED WIFE 20 YEARS. Then Los Angeles Man's Better Half Left Him in 10 Days. Prom the Lo* Anxeles Times. He courted her for twenty years. She married him. They lived togeth er ten days. She left him. Such was the sad story Thomas Wiseman told Judge Suramerfleld In he Los Angeles court. The Judge granted him a di vorce from Hermlnone Wiseman. Despite the "admittedly ideal weath er” of California, the only reason she gave him for leaving was that she did not like the state, the husband testified. He had known her twenty years and married her when she “happened” to come out to Los An geles, he told the court. Shortly after that, it appeared, she "hap pened” to go back to New Tork. Wiseman's brother testified and corroborated his brother’s story. He said he met tbe defendant in Brook lyn after she returned from the west. “She said she didn’t like California,” he testified: "that she did not care foe Tom and that she did not want any thing more to do with him.” When Clancy Sat TTp.

Queer Tribe on Island of Ceylon Withstand Even Tickling of Feet. From (lie Detroit News. For more than two thousand years, it Is said, laughter has been unknown to the Veddas, a tribe of aboriginal inhabitants of Ceylon, who have maintained a secluded existence in caves and jungles of the region. Cut off from other peoples and sub sisting on hats, owls and crows, that they shoot with arrows, these strange people are said to have lost entirely the sensation of laughter. They are thin and flabby, and a fat man is un known to them. Efforts of a scientist who recently visited them to produce smiles by tickling them on the soles of their bare feet or in the ribbs met with no success. Their stony coun tenances did not even wiggle.

ARREST OF WESTON’S ASSAILANT SOUGHT Warrant Issued Charging Gang With Attempted Murder of Pedestrian. Bj the Associated Press. KINGSTON, N.

Old inns take new lease of life and freshly painted signs flap in the wind. The meager custom of travelers of stage coach days did not require pretentious invitation. The speed and availability of the motor car have resulted in a tremendous in terurban traffic. Motorists are at tracted by pleasant wayside rdaces of refreshment, and they are likely to be better customers for recognition of their means of travel. So it is in England that tavern keepers have shrewdly trimmed their enterprises to accord with the spirit of the times. Signs on many inns and roadside hotels now bear new names taken from the nomenclature of motor transportation. A similar re christening took place with the es tablishment of railroads, and there were those who mourned the passing of the good old days. As automobile traffic is established in rural regions, it will leave a record of its passing English highways that one.; wen marked with the metallic tread of Roman legions now bear the softer tread of rubber tires—a sort of auto graph, so to say. ■Signs of an earlier day were much given to pictures and names of an imals, birds and fowl done in bright colors—“ The Blue Boar.” “The Ked Lion.” ’’The Golden Dragon.” and for feathered life. “The Black Swan” and “The Gray Goose.” Os all that ar ray only the “Gray Goose” could claim kinship with the motor car—its “honk, honk” is now the national password, a countersign to open any tavern door.
