May 3-- (UP)--Tr* Washington Federation ci Churches look up today the drive siari- ed by Xew York churches ^r.jr burlesque theaters. Through its committee 0.1 civic affairs, the federation nlacced a showdown with District of Columbia police '·about some pretty terrible things going on" at Washing- ion's only burlesque house, the Gayety. James Lake, Gayety msnsger, defended his strip-teas* emporium. He said he was confident that "There'll be no trouble." "Burlesque just isn't the sroae thing here as it is ia New York," he said. "There's been so much competition there, and ont thing has led to another." But Wilbur Laroe, chairmen ol the federation's civic affairs committee, had a different idea. My committee has been csrry- ng on an investigation," he said, "and we find some pretty terribJe hings going on. We're going to the police for a showdown." The federation's drive sttmcted he "interest" of the Washington Sodality union which acts for ihe Catholic Legion of Decency. Miss a Ecthermann promised SB investigation soon with E view to action.
