Mormons To Start Campaign To Polyamize Europe After Conclusion of World War Polygamy for all the world as at res-ult of the tremendous slaughter (of the men of this generation, is the 'ambition of the Mormon church to-t day. Reports from their semi-annual conference held in Salt Iike City last week, suggest that they are only waiting for the end of the war to ttart out on a world campaign. design d to put polygamy on the! map everywhere, according to Dr. L L Mills, of the board of home missions of the Methodist Lpiscopal church. Quoting from reports made at this conference, lr. Mills says that over $2,000,000 was paid out last year by individual Mormons "for the fur- therh: of th'.i religion of the I-atter Day Saints" as they call themselves. There were 85,602 tithe payers in the church last year, that is, men and women who gave at least one tenth of their entire income to the church, and there were "47.S20 loyal Latter Day Saints who contributed to the church by giving fast offer ings." An exhortation by Joseph F. Smith in his presidential address before the conference. that all widowers who are not too old should feel it lhpir lut' to marry again, uggests a tactful paving the way for a polygamy propaganda. "Just as Soon as the war is over," said Dr. Mills, "they are going to make a tremendous drive to spread polygamy all over Europe, because they realize of course, that the tre mendous surplus of women over men in all the belligerent countries will offer such an opportunity for their propaganda as they have never had before." Dr. Mills, who is superintendent of the frontier department of the home mission work of the Methodist Episcopal church, has recently been ordered to New York, as staff sec retary of the centenary celebration of the mission work of that church. He was formerly stationed in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he observed the Mormons at first hand. "It is easy to find evidences of preparation on their part for a world campaign on a new scale." Dr. Mills continued. "For the first time in their history, they are branching out as a world religion. Heretofore they have built temples only in Utah. This year they will finish two new and elaborate temple?, one in the Hawaiian islands, and one in Al berta, Canada. In the past when the Latter Day Saints, as they call themselves, wanted to perform those mystical rites which confer the high est Idessings, they had to go to Utah, to visit one of the temples. The new temple in Hawaii will be near at idence, Ilaney ar. TAhVi scLool at ö:C0 a. m.; It. Wliite. superintendent. Lindea Avenue Church of Christ Linden ar. and Carlisle st. Rev.

First Lafnyett Monroe st.. Rt W. II. Preahiey. pastor Sunday school WITHOUT A Edward Everett Hale's story of the man who wished he might never see America or her flag again is fraught with a great lesson of patriotism. It was a terrible price that the sailor paid for his incon siderate words. To take away the church would be to eliminate much that is vital in litera ture. It would remove the character shaping part of education. Youth would be robbed of its ideals and old age of its comfort. A thousand benev hand for Mormons scattered through the South Sea i5land. and the Alberta temple will serve for all Canadian Mormons. There is no doubt that as soon a.s the war Lp over, they will beglin building temples in Europe. Probably tha first two will be in London and Copenhagen. "Another evidence that the Mor- j mons are preparing for a world campaign on a vastly larger mmI-s than ever before attempted, is to be found in the activity of their press bureau, which is hard at work, send ing out items designed to break i prejudice againrt Mormonism, ami j to familiarize people with the idea of polygamy. Mrs. Susan Young Gates, mother of Kmma Lucy Gates, the famous opera singer. i one of Rrigham Young's numerous daugh ters. She has recently syndicated a series of Interviews in some of tho Sunday papers throughout the coun- try, in which she gently insisted that polygamy was not so bad. once you pet used to it. All of thin propa ganda shows a reaction to modern criticism. Instead of the scornful attitude of their earlier days toward the Christian religion and 'Gentiles' In general, they now appreciate the fact that they are under a stigma, and they are occupied in trying to prove that the stigma is false, and does not apply. "However," said Dr. Mills, "I do not want to seem to be an alarmist over the Mormon situation, because on the contrary, I believe that Mor monism as a religion is passing. In the very nature of things, the time forMormonism has gone. For in stance, the doctrine of polygamy is essentially for a pastoral people. It is based on the old fashioned family unit, that was a self-supporting community, on a small scale. The husband and father was, so to speak, mayor over a little village of wom en and children, who by their labor on the farm and in the house, kept down the expenses of such a large establishment. In our modern in dustrial and commercial life, there is no place for such establishment. The ordinary Mormon has enough to do to support one family without running around borrowing trouble, especially as the average educated Mormon girl has tastes in dress and home furnishing fully equal to the financial ability of her husband. She would not be satisfied with the sort of life her grandmother had. "Any one familiar with conditions in Utah must realize that a gradual disintegration of the entire religion is going on. It is due to the influ ences of modern ideas, such as evo lution and higher criticism. The Every at 9:30 a. m. ; Geoie J. Long, superin tendeut. Lesson ; "Jesus Transfigured."

The Mormons brilt up a tremendously strong business or ganization. It was a product of necessity. The early Mormon eld ers went out to those Utah plains in IS 47 to get away from the United Statt s. They were a thousand miles from everything. They had to pro duce strong men to lead them, or perish. The financial, social and traditional ties crtated in those pioneer days, hold over today, and are what is keeping the institution alive ven as long as this. A church that can take in over $2,000,000 a year In tithes, beside the income from their investments, will con- tinue indefinitely and the increasing compet.tion of evangelical churches will force further modifications in the belief and practice of the re ligion."

Religion is the saving salt of societv, is all mature thinkers admit. South Bend would not long be a fit city to live in without the church. Now, if all this be true and it is submitted to the reader's judgment as merelv suggestive of a vast fleW of speculation then the obligation of every good citizen to conserve the church becomes apparent. For is not neglect as unfriendly an attitude as op position? Go to church today for reasons of citizenship and there find other reasons for church-attendance.

Mary' Greer, tne eldest or tne group, who haI mothered them all felt a subtle change in Elinor since i the old days. the was even more beautiiful, with added poise which! the years had brought, but there was a coldness that had not been there before. Mary' wondered if the blighted romance with Claud Edmonds ad had anything to do in bringing this about. However, Mary's attention was attracted at this moment by the discussion about the sundial that had been their clubs gift to the college. "We're obliged to move it." an nounced the club president. "The growth of the college necessitates more buildings, and that makes it necessary to move our sundial. Rut the powers that be have Käven us permission to choose our site where the sundial is to be placed." "Why not consult with the new landscape gardener who's heie superintending some sork on the campus," spoke up another. After some discussion, Elinor was chosen to interview him. "As my old cook used to say, 'You have a glib tongue,' " laughed Mary. "Why, yes, 1 11 see him if you want me to. What's his name?" asked Elinor. "I've forgotten. He's recently come form California. They say he went out there a few years ago, a penniless young fellow threatened with tuberculosis, and got a job with Dan Clemmons, the big plant expert, in his experiment station. His health improved rapidly. Mr. Clemmons, took a fancy to him for he showed marked ability along the, lines of landscape gardening, and now they say he's at the top of his profession." "He's in the summer-house now, why not see him?" suggested one. "A good time to beard the lion in his den," laughed Elinor and made Stranger Within Our Pes every night except Wednesday.
