THE FORT MOLL TIMES ! D?mocrm.tlo?Publl?b?d Thw^Uy,, The Times invites contributions on live subjects but does not agree to publish more than 200 words on any subject. The right is reserved to edit every communication submitted for, publication. t On application to' the publisher, , advertising rates are made known to those Interested. Telephone, local and long distance. No. 112. Entered at the poatofllce at Fort Mill, S. C., as mail matter of the second class. THURSDAY. JUNE 80, 1921. The vote by which the national house of representatives Monday night passed the bill to prevent the sale of beer as a medicine shows that the' prohibit ion forces are in the saddle in Washington and are alert to the wishes of the country in allowing no opening wedge to be inserted in the liquor laws. All this talk about beer being good for the > sick is so much bunk?it is principally useful to fatten Germans and hogs?and was spread broadcast mcr me country ov tlie liquor interests who foresaw that if they could induce Congress to modify the prohibition laws by allowing beer to be sold on physicians' prescriptions there would be opened a thousand and one ways for the sale of beer and that eventually it would result in the undermining vof the whole of the prohibition laws. The anti-prohibition agitation, confined in the main to the big cities which have large German and Jewish populations, will have to be watched, however. The victory in the house of representatives Monday night does not mean that the agitation is at an end. On the contrary, the liquor interests are rich and powerful and it will require constant vigilance 011 the part ot' the Anti-Saloon league and other societies and individuals promoting good government to checkmate the moves of their organiza tions and lobbyists in Washington and elsewhere. The power of the American pre^s to interes* the public in a particular subject is strikingly illustrated in the prize fight which is to take place at Jersey City Saturday between Dempsev, American, and the Frenchman Carpentier. For the last month or six weeks practically all the daily papers and many of the weeklies have published article after article describing the ring prowess of the two men and telling of the prospects of eaeh to wiu the fight.* The press associations have daily sent out dispatches from the training quarters of both men, to be supplemented in many . of the larger papers by articles from special writers So it has come to pass that however distasteful prizefighting may be to the average man, he has recently seen so much in print ubout the two men to meet July 2 for the heavyweight championship of the world that unwittingly and unwillingly he feels a certain amount of interest in the outcome of the fight, albeit he is aware of the fact that it will draw together more plug-uglies, low-brows and other ; Hnpinuu a f ?U 1 ' -r?-v0 vi uiugH ana tougns than \ have ever before assembled in one place. This interest has been heightened by the impression many of the press writers have sought, not unsuccessfully, to create that there is involved in the fight a matter of patriotism, that should Derapsey be defeated it will mean humiliation for America, and that therefore it is , the duty of every citizen of the j country to at least hope the; Frenchman will have to take the count. There is nothing to this line of reasoning. Ordinarily Americans, however degrading nnd immoral they consider prizefighting. would prefer to see an American hold the championship, but in the fight between Demp- ' sey and Carpentier to many it is! v : . : &'\ J*&3mE5&V'"v*. li*' y v' ^#*/T*? SXm- *vV '*I K Vr> tx%*?JC;3 "* vv - ? % % matter of no moment whether the American wins.' There is the unsavory odor about Dempsey of i&ving been a slacker in the World war and notwithstanding his acquittal q? the charge by a federal jury? that j\iry did not ilo the thinldng of the country. Carpentier, on the other haiul, early was in the trenches for his native country and did his duty from first to last as a soldier;For that there are many on this side of the Atlautie who will wish hiiu success iu the fight Saturday. Census figures recently made public give the surprising information that 45 million of the 105 million people in this country are affiliated with some religious denomination. .Church membership has doubled in the last 20 years, whereas the population of the United States lias increased but 68 per" cent. This growing realization of spirituui value must soon have its effect on this age of materialism. This materialism, expressed in eating, drinking, spending, competing in display with one's neighbors, in a general empnusis on exterior trimmings rat iter tliun interior values, culminated in such false ideals of life that the inevitable outlet was a clash of arms involving the whole world, liven today it is collected in a lower staiulurd of morality, in selfishness, in avarice, in gross appetites leading to grosser indulgences. Hut the pendulum is on the backward swing. 1 here is duwning in the minds of constantly growing millions a vision of life that places the spirit above the material things of life. It may not be a religious renaissance, but it is bound to result, in individual realization that a personal readjustment of moral values is the first requisite for a spiritually awakened nai ion.
