Probably nothing Is- more confusing to the thoughtful child of today lian the great variety . of faiths, ot;emanations ;0t ~th'e nature .of God' »bd. of the ;i possibility of an after life -of whloh he hears on every hand.- Not only-may father belong-to one church and. mother to another, DUt an admired uncle may be an agnostic and an aunt may be much influenced by spiritualism. His Mends from many different homes may represent as many different creeds. Parents with the same orthodox religious affiliations have no hesitation as to what to teach their children. But in those homes where father and mother do not necessarily concur ia their beliefs, or where, if they do, these no longer follow orthodox lines, It is not so deal wisely with the child's questions concerning the nature of graduation. Chances for playing with the advent of the talkies in theaters have been eliminated, he pointed out. A bill was defeated Wednesday Mr. King continued, which woult have cut out the chance for cltie to levy for bands. He said that th present state law left the lavy en tlrely up to the cities and was fai in. .every respect. The Iowa band law, he said, had been copied in 28 other states. Alonzo Leach, Des Moines, secretary of the Iowa Bandmasters' association, stated that legislation which would have struck at the existence of municipal bands was nearly passed when he began a strenuous campaign.

Weaver pointed but that the tax, placed at one and one-half mills in Mason City, was not a* burden, a person owning a home valued at ?6,000 only, giving- 70 cents a year to the support of the band. He said that if the present band law were repealed, cities could not vote whether or not they wanted the band tax, and support of bands would be dependent on solicitations, considered highly objectionable.
