About thirty-six of the members and several guests were present and altogether it was one of the merriest parties tbe club has held. The party was progressive, and while the victrola gave several beautiful selections the company assembled at the home of Miss Estella Ink. A hat auction, Mrs. Wayne Fowler, acting as auctioneer and Mrs. Mabel Costion as clerk, was first on the program. The bidding for the latest creation in hats from Paris was both spirited and hotly contested. A second contest provided partners -"after which the first course in the progressive luncheon was served and the party was then conducted to the home of Miss Estella Jenkins. "What the Ghost Did" caused much merriment after which the second course of luncheon was served and the guests engaged in a second contest for partners.

With better sanitary conditions and with an increased force of teachers working ; True to the old saying, "you can't keep a real man (cr woman) down," the real workers in the News contest, those who understand the value of systematic work, are coming to the front in the standing of candidates, and staying there. They are using judgment by getting into the front rank and in this way are showing their friends, that they WANT the Ford Sedan Car, that they are trying to win it, and that they expect the support of their friends to the extent of a subscription to their home paper. "They are realizing that they have tt ASK to receive; that they have to SEEK to find; 'and when they ask for and seek for subscriptions, they get them, for all enterprizing citizens, those who are interested )n3ieir home under the new plan it may be reason- present at the 1922 reunion.

A split in the Indiana Yearly Meeting of Friends, now in session in Richmond, was averted Monday late in the afternoon session, when the meeting on ministry and oversight, after an all day's argument, accepted a resolution reaffirming its belief in the inspiration of the Bible, the Richmond declaration, and tbe letter of George Fox to the governor of the Barbadoes. For several years, the more con servative members have held that the - body no longer adheres strictly to the traditional doctrines of the church, but has tolerated a laxity in the acceptance of the doctrine of the inspira tion of the Bible and of other denom inational tenets, which are set out in the Richmond declaration, and the letter of George Fox. Friends in all parts of the United States have been closely watching developments along this line in Indiana Yearly Meeting. Monday's debate among the minis ters and elders, which became one of the most spirited witnessed in a yearly meeting for many years, was generally regarded as the aftermath of the investigation last winter of alleged heterodox doctrines taught by members of the Earlham College faculty, which resulted in a divided report by the joint committee of Indiana and Western Yearly Meetings, the majority report exonerating the faculty and the minority insisting that the teachings of the scientific department could not be reconciled with the -expressed doctrine of the church and with the Bible. This investigation was made after members of a number of quarterly . meetings at the session in Richmond, last year, voiced their apprehension over some of the doctrine said to have been taught at Earlham, in which the name of the head of the Biblical department was mentioned. Since the divided report of the committee was published, it has been generally un derstood that the fight would be car ried to the yearly meeting, but its manifestation in the preliminary session Monday came as a surprise. Earlier in the day, Fairmount, Win chester and Whitewater quarterly meetings, in their reports, had indi cated an apparent lack of unity among their members as to whether the church officially still subscribed to its traditional tenets. Whitewater submitted four proposi tions urging Friends "to manifest the spirit of respect and toleration for or.i another's opinions and beliefs, which is the only certain bond of denomina tional unity." Winchester asked for a re-declaration of the Yearly Meeting's acceptance of the Richmond dec laration of faith, and Fairmount asked the body "to re-affirm its faith in the scriptures, as given by the holy men who were inspired by God to write them." These reports called forth a pro tracted argument, in which Timothy Nicholson, 93 years old, said: "Why need we re-affirm our faith in the dis cipline? It may shake the faith of some Friends as to whether our stand is right. The Indiana Yearly Meeting had never taken any other stand than that in the Richmond declaration of faith. No one in authority has attacked our stand." Other ministers and elders, how ever, believed a re-affirmation was necessary to prevent a split. George Furstenberger, of Portland Quarterly Meeting, declared: "If we do not re-declare our faith, we will jeopardize thwhole church, for not only members of Indiana Yearly Meeting but of the whole Quaker Church are watching what -we do." , . S. Edgar Nicholson, of Richmond, who is presiding clerk of the Yearly Meeting proper, said, "If the Richmond declaration of faith or any other declaration will help anybody to find God, I endorse it." He was chairman of the joint committee which investigated the teaching of certain members of the Earlham faculty and signed the N majority report. George Bird, of Van Wert, O., who introduced the resolution asking: for Contiued on Page Eight big dinner at the noon hour and a program during tbe afternoon, which included a business session.

UNIQUE INSCRIPTIONS During the summer months motor Parties are very apt to run across the oJd Indian burying-ground which lies soutn ox jaiontaine ana not a great distance from the Mississinewa battle field. The inscriptions on the head stones in the cemetery are always sure to provoke much interest. Last Sunday C. C. Brown and party visited the grave of the last chief of the Miamas, Me-shin-go-me-sia, whose monument bears this inscription: "Me-shin-go-me-sia Died December 16, 1879 - Aged about ninety-eight years "He united with the Baptist Church and was baptized the second Sunday in June 1861, and lived a consistent Christian until he was taken from the church militant to the' church triumphant in heaven."
