PAGE TEN. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLli;, f A. D'lUDAY, l'JiBKUAHY IS, ISISo. America's Rumba And Fox Trot Are Banned in Japan TOKYO, Feb. 18.--Dancing is doomed in Japan. The police, for several years, have entertained grave suspicions about the effect of the fox-trot on national morality. There has been much sibiliant hissing, the disapproving kind, over the sight of young couples embracing in public. It was generally believed that Japanese youth was rumba-ing to ruin. To forestall this, the ministry has decreed that public dance halls must close. On the night of March 31, the trumpets will tootle farewell. The taxi-dancers will expose their toes to disaster for .the last time. The saxophones, which, in Japanese Lands seem beset by a perpetual state of doubt about the next note, will sob a quavering swan-song. Then Japan's 52 dance halls, the majority of which are in Tokyo, will be padlocked. Japanese morality will gain. And' only the 2,000 or more professional dancers will lose. They lose their jobs. The majority of them probably, will gravitate to; the innumerable bars, there to eke out a tenuous living from tips. In the bars the "host-, ess" comes with the drink. She stays as long as it does. She is frequently attractive and pleasant, thus differing somewhat from the concoctions 'she brings. Dancing already has been banned in Tokyo's five licensed quarters. It was easy there to forbid the city's 10,000 or more prostitutes from dancing since they, and the entire institutions are legalized under government supervision. · The police simply forbade it on the grounds it is immoral.

(Central Pr«»2 Council Promises Action In Reported Lumber Pile Nuisance at Snyderlown WIFE SAYS SHE HAD TO DIG COAL The danger presented by two large lumber piles in the Snydertown district was related to City Council Monday night by John H. Barnes, who showed several pieces that had crashed a window at a Snydcr street home during a January windstorm when an infant narrowly escaped injury. Mr. Barnes said that about a year ago residents of the community presented a petition to Council asking that something be done about removing the purported nuisance. Nothing had come ot it, he declared, although the solons had been reportedly assured the danger would be alleviated. Mr. Barnes said one pile o£ lumber was about 30 feet high and another about 20. During the height of the storm last month, timbers were scattered over the street. No one was out doors at the time or they probably would have suffered injuries, he explained. He insisted the lumber presented a danger to the safety of tho residents and a fire menace to properties. In answer to a query, City Solicitor J. Kirk Benner declared-that if a condition becomes either a public or private nuisance it should be abated and that the law provides recourse. Council decided to give the matter immediate attention.
