BIG PROGRAM OUTLINED BY BAPTIST CHURCH Sixteen Departments Organ ized to Carry Out So cial Work. Th Federated Eaptits Churches -of Indianapolis as an organization came Into being a year ago. Previous to that time on City Mission Society had existed for several years. The need for a Jargej vlsioji and more completely co-ordination of the wort In Baptist churches in Ma rion County was revealed by the Rev. F. A. Hayward, called to be the super intendent of the Baptist work in Marion | County. With this larger and more pro- j pressive program before them the Bap- j tists of the city re-organized and adopted j anew constitution and outlined a larger work, according to F. A. Hayward, exec utive secretary. This larger program developed sixteen departments, each under the direction of sub-committee of three or live. These committees ate as follows: Religious education, church life, work j among foreign speaking peoples, work • among men and boys, work among the j women and girls, athletic or recreational department, work la colored churches, j work in mission churches, publicity de- • pamnent, finance, suburban churches, ! young people's department, pastor's : union, statistical department and depart- | meat of music. In the year passing the department of j Religions Education has conducted the. dally vacation Bibio schools, the church j school institution and special programs! and special features of religious educa- 1 tion. The church life department has! studied the city situation with the desire to readjust the working places of the j Baptists os they will grow larger in i service end more orderly in parish; form. : In some cases this department has suggested the elimination of organized j churches and the organization of new j churches. Mora of this constructive ! work will be attempted as the meat becames convinced of city popula tion trendings. The work among the foreign speaking peoples has reached several groups of peoples of other nationalities and plans nre on foot for the enlargement of this work so it will be adequately housed and organized into a substantial center. .tenons the work taken up with men end boys has been occupational ventures, i employments, programs, organization j end developments of classes and brother- | hoods, radio demonstrations end studies.; The work among the women and: girls has Interested itself in the or- j gacized form and the special f *a- j tures and programs. One special thing ; which this department has made possl- | ble has been the welcoming of Baptist; girls to the city, No Baptist girt or j f.irl of any other church need come to: the city s'one and unprotected. A lady ' will meet any girl coming to the city , end take her to a Baptist home where she may remain housed and cared for; until she shall have found work or se- j cured the desircc. room under moral; conditions. The recreation department has or- ; panlzea an a.'.-Baptist baseball league of; twelve teams and has & program under way for tennis and horseshoes end has; set up a field day for the Baptist ■ schools of th coanty to be held on July ! I>J. The work among the colored churches has made possible the part- • time employment of a special worker. The publicity department has endeav ored to see that people understand cor nu tiv the nature of the work conducted in the Baptist Churches in the city and county. It has also end-nvored to send ent to the Baptist Churches themselves lnf of various kinds for the i - cToser fellowship The suburban Churches have n line organization in which they find a common ground of work and companionship and also a very viral contact with the churches of the city. The young people's department meet regularly each month for counsel and plans. Rallies and special city work social and education ft* w-U as Inspirit: nel is carried on in this department. The Pastors’ Fnion has brought to g-t . r each month Its ministry and through veil defined programs and studies made possible an in’eligent lead ership ur.d Baptist fellowship. The department of music has listed ail Baptist choirs, chorus leaders, evangel istic singers and musicians and so render service to the churches calling for such aid as well as planning for a great mu sical fete in the near, future. Non-resi dent membership Is to be reduced to the minimum as pastors from out of the city write regarding their members coming to the city and the pastor of that particular pariah" is informed of the new resident pear his church. Hospital calls are part of the daily programs and either bv mail or in person tho messages of che r are carried to every patient of which the office learns. Many Baptist people out of the city come here for operations and sj mpatby end flowers are sent to bring cheer and encouragement. The city law and order situation is carefully studied and fre quently reported to the pastors of the city or the men In the Baptist brotherhoods for lnformatoin or action. Thus the program for coordination and cooperation goes on in an organized nd orderly manner each day of the year, Mr. Hayward states.

Class Bronze Tablet to Be Dedicated in Honor of All Men of Class Who Took Part in the World War . By THE VISITOR. Memorial Sunday tomorrow at the Third Christian Church will be observed the members of the C. M. B. class by dedicating a bronze tablet In honor of the war service men of the class. Two hundred and twelve members of the class were in war service during the World War and six were In Y. M. C. A. world. When the smoke of the war cleared away there were two gold stars on the service flag in honor of the mem ory of Don Hayward and Karl Bueus All of the service men in the class will be honored Sunday when the class dedi cates with a proper ceremony the un veiling of the tablet. The C. M B. class, meaning Christian Men Builders, of the Third Christian ' Church holds a unique position among ; the young men's Bible classes of the city, as this class is incorporated under the laws of the State of Indiana for the purpose to ‘‘build Christian men ’ The slogan or motto of the class Is as high as the object. It Is “To Help j Young Men Make Good.” The object and the slogan seems to tell Its own wonderful story. The visitor has heard a great deal about this class and of Mr. Merle Side net', leader and teacher of the class. When a young man telis me that he obtains great pleasure in attending .Merle Sidener'* class at the Third Christian Church, I become interested and have decided to base my story upon the facts given me j by a member of the clues. In the first place, the C- M. B. Clpss ' ts a real man’s class us r real business man each Sunday teaches the class. His name Is Sidenor. He lias found time in these busy days to make a Sunday school room a real “he-man s” gathering place • m a Sunday morning. Every man who is a member of the class gladly pays his own share of the expenses of the or ganization.

It Is my personal pet prove against the church that it docs not put enough importance of money in religion. There Is too much talk about ‘free salvation’ which is nsually interpreted literally*. I never found anything in the world that was worth while that did not cost something and the more worth while It is, the more it costs. So we make our meu understand that it U worth some thing to them to belong to our organiza tion and that they have to pay their way.” This class has grown from a charter membership of five about seven years ago until today It is claimed by members that It has an active membership of about SOU and an average attendance of from 2r,0 to 800 on Sundays. The age limits of the members are from 17 to 30 years, but some of the memtters have passed the 30- year limit and yet they demand that they be Allowed to remain. Even the an-p limit worries those who are approaching it. “Some of our members have been with ns long enough to pass the 30 mark, but we do not seem to find it desirable to drive them out," Mr. Si loner states. Under the rules of the riass, a man present three times on Sunday mornings is automatically entitled to membership in tile corporation and a certlfi ate, duly signed and eeaiert, ts furnished him.

In a sentence, blackmail is the threat if you and n't do us I aoi, I shall toil what 1 know.” At the moment bin- kmail is the pet word en the lip of et ry tongue In the metropolis due to the ci.-iim of a dapper ■rich young man In New Rochelle, that ho shot and killed a fellow being who was blackmailing him. une. lias to won ibT whether the drive to establish the truth of Walter S. Ward's < ontenfiun of blackmail set up by himself as hi* de defeiise, U aimed nt ills crime or whether It is designed ,o uncover some scandal worth headlining for a few days. George SI. Dougherty, formerly deputy police commissioner of New York anil as hard-boiled and wise a detective as ever took up the scent of mystery, said to day that in New York City alone, millions of dollars are annually paid in black mail. “Scores and scores of victims . settle, and lle.-lr sad plight never is 'known outside of the small circle In volved,” lie said when I asked him for | his experience in handling such matters. “There is no known case where money had been paid over that the bh-d'ng process did not continue, the black mailers retiming again and again for more money. Hundreds of victims have been bled until they were either paupers or suicides.” Mr. Dougherty divided blackmailers into two classes, amateurs and profes sionals. An amateur could be the office boy who, from the private flies he keeps f- r ids employes, discovers in a jeweler's liill the origin of the pretty steuograph , ef's new diamond ring, and acts upon Iha information by demanding promo tion; or the lady’s maid, who procures the "gift" of some almost new gowns from her mistress by gently letting it be known that she intercepted a telephone message from some male other than the master. He said hlackmniilng is the only business that requires no capital other than "the goods." How much can lie obtained depends upon the extent of their value In stimulating fear upon the mind of the victim. ‘‘.Suppose you outline the tools used by blackmailers,” we asked. ‘■Tn New York City the professional tlaekmailei s, by that l mean men and we men who follow blackmailing as a business, have everything systematized," he replied. “They study their victims before the approach Is made with ‘the goods’ and decide whether lie or she Is tin* sort likely to ‘come through’ without calling in either a lawyer or the police. Manj of the big men of tile country have been found to tu> blackmail-proof, ami they are left well alone. liicrimlnat- i lug letters or documents make tho best i background for blackmailers. Next are ! the photographs. Then there nro the! careless conversations overheard and cor- j roborated by witnesses or something i written, which is always better for tbelr purpose than the spoken word. “‘I have reliable Information that, etc., etc.,’ begins the contact individual of tho blackmailing gang. “ ‘Yon have no proof," bravely answers i tbs victim, hoping there is none, adding, | 'Come now, all cards on the table.’ j “ Tlow would you like your husband (or wife) to see this?’ answers the con tact individual, handing over not the original of a letter, but n photographed copy. Presto! A few moments allowed for the complex of fear of exposure to sink In, Ihen In a leering voice the con tact Individual tightens everything up with ‘now, what are you going to do?' And seeks to be engaged at once to act as ‘go-tween’ with the parties unnamed, who hold the originals only to be sur rendered for a cash consideration which is stated as tho bottom price.” Mr. Dougherty stressed the thorough ness with which the professional black mailers are organized, each group keep ing to itself and exchanging no con fidences in which they differ radically from pickpockets, safe bugiars, stick-up men and other departments in the under world. “Some of these groups are very small, nn T v t-n or fbr (.. v t-i-L- mntin;* the INDIANA DAILY TIMES Slogan Adopted by Class Is 'To Help Young Men Make Good’ and to ‘Build Christian Men ’ liar to the stock certificates of a business proposition. The member states that the class op erates under the budget system and Is financed by subscriptions made by the members of the class. Each member makes a pledge to pay a certain amount each week and to make tho payments as sume a business proposition, a series of fifty-two envelopes are prepared and dated and furnished each member. In these envelopes, the member places his weekly pledge. And the member states that Irregular attendance does not mean an excuse for not paying as “a man owes, whether he is present or not.” It is pointed out that it is the duty of the treasurer to collect. This business arrangement appears to be one of the features that the men enjoy. In other words, the men themselves are running the class and paying the bills. Business and religion wi! 1 mix, you know. Tho trouble generally appears to be that there isn't enough mixing of the two. The idea is becoming so popular that former members of the class on moving out of the city have established C. M. B. classes in Tulsa, Okla.; Detroit, Mich., Peru and Connersvilie. Ed Palmer was the first president of the class when it was organized as a Bible class In the fall of 18X2. When the class was incorporated, Frank Wood was president. The present officers are as follows: Paul Knowles, president; Roland Schme del, vice president, advertising; Sum Molloy, vice president, employment; Frank Newland, vice president, member ship; Ike Riley, vice president, social; Ed Donaldson, sccrclury; Herb W ode wen, treasurer; Merle Sidener, leader. Mr. Sidener states that James M. Dun pan, who is over 75 years of age .arid living at 2218 Broadway, first talked to Sidener and impressed him with the great good to he obtained by teaching a men's Bible class. For that reason, the men of the class call Mr. Dungau “the grand-daddy of the class." The. C. M. B. C!ns has done a won derful thing—it has made a practical business pri position in “hnli.Fug Chris tian men" and In "helping young men make good.” That is a mighty wonderful business. Mr. Sidener. and the dividends will mount Into the billion*. clique,” he said. "I bad recently brought to my attention two young women who make it their practice to travel together upon trams Arimtlc steamships; one was pood looking, lively and free in low ways. Hiid tin- of bet quiet, plain lo- king Jici religious. Their practice is f--r the r tractive V. ,f.-r' (they represent tin i -elves as ’si-tiers') to make up with s->ru>* nan of wealth, and m -lire by invita tion a compromising situation.

An instance of that sort of black mailing work came to my attention only j last week. The ‘cashing in' is done by n white female confederate who calls ‘ around and reveals the supposed and irlt ; compb'xiohod white man ns a negro, <\ n ■ fronted with this woman, the very light colored man, noting hie role, breaks down ! and confesses ho Is not white, adding; ! "This Is a dangerous woman, and wo must silence her,' and thus the first ; blackmail is paid, it is astounding what 1 a man and a woman will put into a loiter ; when under the influence of w hut they j think is extraordinary lore. They write tilings, and give cosily tokens that they j would not think of doing under ordinary 1 circumstances. | "One of tiio most prolific operating | areas for blackmailing bands are the : motion picture houses. The victim is escorted there by some woman he has met at Ills hotel. He thinks he has picked her when in reality sb has picked him, knows all about him, where he comes from, his business and what he Is worth. "Blissfully Ignorant of this, the poor victim Is escorted to a picture hou.-e and seated alongside accomplices usually a man and woman posing as husband and wife. The girl makes violent love to him during the darkness of the theater and when ail are out In the street again the ‘husband’ approaches with tho claim that his ’wife’ has been Insulted. Tho gLrl hangs her head and tho man usually pays up. In New* York we have lawyer's w ho have started legal action based upon such a frame up, and blackmail mi* paid over to have them dropped. Tai lors unconsciously help blackmailers by putting the names of their customers in side coat pockets." Mr. Daugherty said it has been es tablished that blackmailing gangs suc cessfully used the Mann act and shad owed couples from olio State to an other. He told of a recent instance where SIOO,OOO was collected upon a threat being made to notify Federal authorities. We called his attention to the exposure of tho “blackmail ring'’ in Boston, half of which has not been pub lished in the newspapers, bug he re plied, “I am talking of this town—New York.” “When I was the head of the detective bureau at police headquarters,” he said, “1 learned much of the work of black mailers in the Italian colony. In nine out of ten cases there, the source of llie knowledge leading up to the threat of kidnaping of a child or the bombing of a store, was back lu Italy, at some small town where the victims and at least one of the blackmailers was raised. Jealousy of the success made by the victim in the new country was at the bottom of the demands for money. “Thieves, forgers and receivers of sto len property are always engaged in blackmailing each other, and most of the murders of tho criminal world have origin in some dispute over ill-gotten spoils.” • For the HOME BUILDER and BUYER Square Houses Save Space L pp iKC , J feieUJJi tmw ! nurlL*- ' (Copyright, Curtis Companies, Inc., Clinton, la.)
