Both Church and State in high Circles, Including

certainly never before was there a
greater hub-bub over a more insignifi

after the tango. The poor old tango is
being talked and written to death.
And why? Nobody seems to know.
Nobody eFer yet was kidnapped, drag
ged by the hair onto a ball-room floor
and made to dance the tango. Those
who do not like it are at liberty to
let it alone.
The dance, though, may be said to
have received several death blows
within the last few days. The Catholic
church turned its thumbs down on the
tango and it had an immediate effect
in New York. About the same time
several Irish peeresses, who are among
the leading London hostesses publicly
announced a boycott of the dance. Sev

a nasty cut in the north of Europe

to set her heel on the neck of the gy

"negroid" dance and

when Cardinal Farley and high Protes
tant clergymen let it he known that
they opposed It and that everything
possible be done to discourage it. Pope
Pius has not banned the tango but
he has made it , plain that he disap
proves of it and prelates the world
over are now fighting the tango. The
New York cardinal did not ban the
dance, but his known disapproval is as
effective as a ban. When the secre

cardinal's attitude, thousands of Cath

tango. The cardinal feels that the
tango is degarding and he has resolved
to do all he can to discourage it," the
secretary said. A Monsigner high in
Catholic affairs in New York went fur
ther in his condemnation of the tango.
He said:
"Any person of intelligence can see,
by watching any ball or cabaret in the
greater city that the present mode of
dancing is open to the charge of im
propriety, if not actual indecency."
Abandoned the Tango.
Because of the elearlcal opposition
to the tango, the Junior Auxiliary In
stitute, an organization of fashionable
women, abandoned a dance and eter
tainment they had arranged at Del
monlco's and recalled 600 invitations
that already were out. For the same
reason the Knights of Columbus an
nounced there would be no tango at
their gigantic ball in Madison Square
Garden next month. Ten thousand peo
ple will dance at this ball, and the
Knights of Columbus have appointed
a censorship committee of 150 to see.
there is no tangoing.
But while these crusades against the
tango are under way and undoubtedly
are doing great execution, the dance
continues popular in many quarters
is even gaining ground. Out in
Angeles one of the vaudeville thea
très has arranged intermissions be
I tween the acts, during which time the
I patrons are at liberty to tango up and
I down the aisles and in the foyer. It
is safe to say that not a performance
is given in any one of New York's hun
dred-odd vaudeville theatres that there
Is not at least one dancing number on
the program that includes an exhibi
tion of the tango. It is an even safer
assertion to say that there is not one
restaurant in the thousands in the
greater city where a cabaret is main
tained, that the tango is not danced.
Experts portray the tango on the plat
forms and the guests in the spaces be
tween the tables.
Matter of Opinion.
Broad minded people say that the
goodness and badness of the tango
is a matter of opinion and of tlie per
sonal equasion. All that dips is not
tango, say the experts. There is tango
and tango. The dance, they say, may
be done gracefully and beautifully, so
that the most prurient cannot object,
while there are varieties of dops,
leaps and hugs, unjustly called the
tango, that are undeniably shocking.
Some persons with a smattering ot
Latin think that tango comes from
the Latin verb meaning to touch, and
evidently that is why they like it. But
the tango of polite ball rooms is not
of Latin extraction. Latin-American
perhaps, but in no wise dead. Such
well known women as .Miss Anne Mor
gan and Mrs. James Lees Laidiaw, so
cial lenders, have come to the rescue
of the maligned dance. They say that
the tango, as done in their set. is as
modest as a waltz, and those who see
evil in it have themselves to blame.
Taking It by and large, being neither
for or against the much discussed
South American dance, it may be said
without qualification that the tango is
in great danger of decadence when
both church and state, the prelates and
the royalties who are social arbiters,
turn against it.
