Chicago, Jan. 7.-The movies, ja? dancing, and the cigarette as they af fect "public morals, were denounced at today's session of the International Purity conference. W. S. Fleming, Chicago, manager of the National Re form Association, addressed .the dele gates on "the menace of the movies," while J. Louis Guyon, a dancing mus ter, also of Chicago, told "the truth about jazz." Mr. Guyon described experiments in his own dancing academy, about the manner in which jazz demoralized the young. Mr. Guyon, in discussing the word "jazz" claimed that for half a cen tury it had been a slang expression to describe immoral arts, and instead of having acquired respectability with its present widespread ' use in con nection with dancing and music, that if regarded properly, "must be ad mitted to be at least the beginning t I-. or acts or immorality, such as trie original coiners of the word intend ed." Mr. Guyon said that if the great numbers of refined persons who now carelessly use this word knew its mutual meaning as used in parts of the underworld, they probably never would use the word again. "Laws need improving," said Bishe p Cvrus J. Kephart, of Kansas Citv, Mo. "Police authorities need to be more exacting, executives need to be more determined, educational process es need to be more comprehensive. But aloug with all this the moral consciousness of America must be aroused. There must come to the peo ple of America everywhere a deep controlling conviction of individual obligation to do the right and abstain from the wrongs." ' Daniel II.
