(Central Press Photo) First Baptist Church Young People Planning Patriotic Dinner Here Considerable interest is being manifested by the young people of the First Baptist church in the patriotic dinner which they are giving Thursday night from 5 to 7 p. m., calling for colonial costumes for both men and women. But a suit for the representative of Abraham Lincoln has been difficult to get. A tall youth has been selected to impersonale "the greatest American," but frock coats have been rather scarce. "One has been found," said Mrs. C. A. Van Meter, 1034 Fourth, street southwest, who is heading the arrangements committee, "but it is too short for the junior college youth selected. The sleeves are too short and the-coat is not long enough." When told that it is said by many that Mr. Lincoln was very tall, that his clothes often fitted him poorly, that many remembered him as ungainly and gawky, Mrs. Van Meter thought that the shrunken coat might do. The national coolrs will be used in the decorative scheme ot the room and tables. Patriotic music will be played and the tables will be served by members of the Hi- BY dressed in the costumes of colonial days, including the Wash- mgtons. James Barnelt, 121 Sixtli street northwest, slated the object ot the dinner was "to raise the wherewithal to purchase a suitable curtain for the proscenium arch ot the lecture room. We wish it for the religious drama, 'The Rock,' by Mary Hamlin, which we are giving on Palm Sunday night in the church." Rehearsals have been going on for some weeks for this excellent Biblical play. --o-PHOENICIAN CLUB HOLDS MEETING Miss Eleanor Irons entertained the Phoenician club at her home, 718 Pennsylvania avenue northeast, Tuesday evening, when the lesson on "The School of Fem- inity" by Margaret Lawrence was given by Miss Eleanor McLaughlin. Guests were Mrs. Hushes Bryant, Mrs. V. T. E. Pearson Miss R u t h Bliss and Miss Katherine Sheffler. Association Hears Talk on Scouting Cedar Falls Pastor Speaks at St. Joseph P. T. A. Meeting. "The philosophy of scouting is to put the boy in touch with good men--men who are interested in the ideals of a Catholic life and in the higher things of life rather than the lower, men who are willing to give of their time and effort to help the boy to apply what he has learned at home, nt school and at church. Scouting does not demand money, but it does demand that (he men 'of the community give their time." The Rev. John C. Weinecke, 33 years ago, assistant at St. Joseph's, but now pastor of the Cedar Falls parish, used these words to sum up the philosophy of scouting when he addressed the St. Joseph Parent-Teacher association Tuesday evening. The program for the evening was in charge of the fathers with W. D. Lattimer and Leo Carle as chairmen. Songs by Larry Reardon and Grace Marie Ryan and dances by a group of children supplemented the talk. The place of scouting in the Catholic youth movement directed by the bishops of the country was explained by Father Weinecke. He pointed out that up to last June, 2,800 troops of Catholic Boy Scouts had been established in 70 dioceses of this country. The church in furthering the Boy Scout program aims to save her youth from subversive influences at work during the recreational period and to rescue them from crime. Recalling the old-fashioned home with its chores to keep · young people busy outside of school hours, the speaker showed that it was idle to bemoan the loss of such a home or to wish for its return. Instead there is to be met the problem created by modern living of 3,650 hours of leisure time yearly for each boy. This leisure, Father Weinecke demonstrated, is utilized by the scout program in forming good citizens and leaders. . Mrs. W. B. McGrane presided at the meeting and Mrs. E. F. Vaughn read the minutes.
