Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta TUKSDAY. SEPTEMBER 21, ISM PASTOR BLAMES LURE OF PARIS, MODERN BABYLON, FOR OLIVE THOMAS'DEATH LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD The death o! Olive Ttoia Iho beautiful moving picture act- re.3 and wire ot Jack Plckford, who d ed from the streets ot swallowing bichloride of mercury after a gay nlftht iu the Montiaartre restaurant's and claudfEtiue fesorts, has aroused a Blorm ot crlticlsjn aud denunciation ,of the Uabyloolcs jf iho world's capital and gaiety of Rev. Dr. Beelrmati, rector the American church' In Paris who re- cently raised Jl.OOO.OOT In" New York lor a campaign against the vice here which "causes innumerable American girls to lose their souls in Took died Time The death of Olive Thomas Is a tragedy, Inceable to the of Paris modern Babylon. Thousands of Americans come here with the In- tent of haviug a {food time. Thousands come for business, hut lose tb'e'r heads once they are here. Thousands stay just long enough to lose their souls and return, homo broken In spirit and in health and totally unfit to lire a clean life. "Our country would condemn as criminal the trentla of fashion which mark the putrtlc dance halls of Paris instance the eihlbitton of nudes. The slitter of priceless jewels adorning baro throats and bare limbs of vomen under cleverly shaded lights Iho languorous musts, rivers of Iced and too lascivious dances all combine to turn the heads of the youne .American girls unaccustomed so Iho lying attractions of sucU places. It is a subtle poison that slowly but surely -o-lelnlcgrates the stronsest mind and the most solid education In It.frora me to insinuate that1 tba lovely 'youngs-matron who died a terrible death was herself in anr way responsible for her accident, but It is unquestionable that when the mistake was committed the could not been in her risht state of mind. She was terribly excited and from an all-night party amid surround- ings such as 1 hare Ruined By Gay Lift "There are now iu Paris hundreds of Americans who ere destitute yet they enjoyed prosperity iu their own country. They have been ruijjed ut- terly by the accursed lure of tbe mod- ern Babylon. "They now spend their time In prac- tically a continuous state of intoil- catlou from wine and worse. "Washington should send another undesirable ark' similar to the one iu which Goldman.aud the other Beds were deported, to clean up Paris of tbo horde of. good citizens now rapidly rushing to total perdition. "Until that is done, until the women are forbidden to make shameful ci- nibitlons ot their forms In places which under the-name of dance halls are nothing less than twentieth 'cen- tury reproductions of the Greeo-Ho- mau orgies, tho souls and the lives of unsophisticated American girls and young men ar'o not safe In Paris." Tho Duchess D'Uzes, famous suf- fragist and society leader, declared- "The death of Olive Thomas clearly shows the terrible consequences of the notorious gay life of Paris, whicfe since tho armistice has grown moro and more flagrantly immoral. In my opin- ion, Olive was murdered by tho Mont- martre. When the French women gain the reins of power their first ac- tion will he to close the palaces of shamo masquerading as restaurants and ballrooms." Comparison mdsr Candidalc' for President is in Prison-i-No TJge for League '-'of Nations Sept. iS.-The big issue ID the SadalUt- campaign this lall is as usual .private bwhersblp of the means orproduetion, Otto Bra listener, national secretary: and campaign man- ager of Ihe; Socialist party, said liere today dfselisilnE the Socialist cam- paign. Tue Lqague ot Nations issue was viewed by the Socialists as "largely he said. The party felt that troituceci by' the 'Old parties largely 10 cloud the .issues and keep tlie people's attention off domestic issues. ISngchc V. Debs, the Socialist presi- dential candidate, in prison .at Allan- la, On., was not -advising In 'the con- ilUcl ot the campaign to any eitcnt. IJse was being made iu parly litera- ture of what Bo Said to Socialists visit- ing him. The chief speaker !n the campaign is the vice presidential candidate, Sey- mour Stednjan, of re-enforc- ed by IU speakers or moro under thr- national organization. He his com- pleted a tour of the sonthweit and on aoptomber started for the Pacific Oklahoma. He'said ihe party eipcct- cd to poll a larger vote in theso states than ever before. A large part of Ihe party member- ship oulslde of the foreign language federations, has come back, the So- cialist executive reported, referring to Iho split last fall, vchich resulted in formation of Die Communist parly and the Communist 'Labor party. No policy of conccnlratlon in sec- tions where Socialist sentiment is stroug will be carried on by uational lieadiiuarlera, according to the party secretary. He said that the national office was makiiig the campaign as general-as it couid, leaving concen- tration to the state' organizations, which could undoubtedly carry on ouch .1 policy In New York, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.
