NOONDAY SERMONS ON
REAL SPIRIT OF LENT
Bishop Williams Says Penance
for Sins Should Be Inward,
Noondny Lenten sorvlccs In live
churchos and n theatre In the centre of
the city todny were attended by many
persons. Tho development of personal
character and tho spirit of Lent wcro tho
chief themes of tho dlscourtcs.
At St. Stephen's, 10th Btrcet above
Chestnut, Bishop Williams, of Michigan,
concluded his scries of five nddrcs&es. He
pointed out tho mistake of mere ostensible
repentance In the Lcntetrseason. Ho told
the story of the Kins of Samaria who
went dally to tho gates ot his capital
wearing sackcloth beneath his regal gar
ments In the hope or urlngtng to an end
a pestilence that Iny upon his people.
"One should not Inflict 'his sorrows upon
others," he said. "Ono should not Haunt
his penance In tho face of the world. If
one wishes to do pennnco for his sins ho
should not mako an outward dl&play ot
his actions but should wear. his sorrows
"SLAVES OF CUSTOM"
Rev. H. D. Viets Urges Christians to
"Applying tho Character of Christ to
Our Own Character" was tho subject of
today's noon Lenten sermon nt Old Ht.
Potcr's Church, 3d and Pine streets, de
livered by the Rev. Harry D. Vlcts, tho
Junior curate. Ho declared that In the
present age nlmost no ono escaped tho
weakness of aping his fellows and that
Christian life demanded greater Independ
ence. "Men tt our day are molded by tho
society fi which they form a part," said
Doctor Viets. "They yield 'readily to tho
ldens and habits of their fellows. A few
master spirits set the pace for a thousand
"There Is a very real slavery in tho so
cial world. Few men aro strong enough
to cut across the customs and fashions
of their strata of society. The strong
and seemingly independent become meio
echoes of their neighbors and haBten to
fall In behind the crowd In tho well
"Christ was not molded by the society
of his day. Ho could not be manipulated.
He refused to be used. He wns always In
dependent, unshackled and free. Ho
would have us Imitate His tenacity ot will
In the structuro of our Christian charac
tei." WAY OF THE CROSS
llev. J. 0. S. Huntington Tells Hearers
It Is Way to Live.
The P.ov. J. O. S. Huntington, O. H. C,
speaking at the Garrlck Theatre noonday
service today, bade his hearers consider
the ways whereby men come to love
God. "The way to live Is the way ot
tho cross," he said.
"It Is tho pressure of some need or
the sting of pain which rouses us to go
forward. It Is that which drives us from
the love of self for self to call upon God,
which moves us to persevere In our
prayer, which makes us seek, with a
deepening sense of our own unworthl
ness, those better gifts which God has
for us. And so It Is by the cross that
we pass from love of God for self, to love
of God for God. Tho cross reveals to
us the self-sacrificing love of God for
us. To receive God we must sacrifice
ourselves to him. AVe must desire, not
so much his gifts even spiritual gifts
but to give ourselves to Him, Our cry
must be: "Not thine but thee."
CHRIST AS BASIS OF FAITn
Belief in Saviour Foundation of All
Relig'on, Speaker Says.
"Faith" was tho subject of the sermon
preached today by the Rev. Dr. Floyd W,
Tomklns, rector of tho Church of the
Holy Trinity, at tho noonday services
In Old St. Paul's Church, 3rd street below
"Faith," said Doctor Tomklns, "con
sists In facts concerning a divine person.
It Is not a philosophy or a theory; it Is
the unswerving belief In what Christ was
and what Chrlat did. Hence, all our faith
centres in Htm. Without Him there can
ho no faith."

1JISH0P WILLIAMS SILENT ON
REPORT OF HERESY CHARGES
Leaves for Detroit After Lenten Sei1-
Bishop Charles D. Williams, of MlchU
gan, who has been preaching noonday
Lenten sermons at St. Stephen's Church,
10th street above Chestnut, refused to
mako a statement today In regard to
the report that charges of heresy wero
about to be brought against him by
Episcopal clergymen In Michigan.
Bishop Williams said that It was true
that charges of "corrupting the word of
God with Unitarian teachings" had been i
made, but beyond thnt he would not
speak. An agitation In Michigan to have
the Illsliop arraigned before an ecclesi
astical court, according to dispatches re
ceived today, Ib expected to reach a
climax In a few days,
Bishop Williams left for Detroit Im
mediately after the sermon today. He
has been Bishop of the Michigan diocese
for 10 years.

Add L. B. equipment
You've been in offices that seemed over
crowded. Desks, everything, chockablock
hardly room to turn around.
Visitors think a business man of that kind
can't afford extra floor space and floor space
does cost money, Or, that he doesn't know
the value of a well ordered office.
In either case, L, D. counter-hight files would
solve the problem by providing a means of
utilizing floor pace to greatest advantage.
L. B. counter-hight units give you a broad
counter top, with abundant filing and storage
space below. This means more floor space.
Combinations of units depend upon your re
quirements whether your office is large-or
small. Why not find out more about them?

PORTER TO DEMAND
500 MORE POLICE
Blame of Many Rdccnt Rob
beriea Laid to Neglect of Ac
tion by Councils.
Fivo hundred now policemen will be
requested by Director of Public Safety
George D. Porter In a message which ho
wilt Bend to Councils nt t'nelr meeting
next vreeU This will bo the second re
quest for more police mndo by tho DI
rector within tho last year.
The Director answered tho retort ot
opponents of the present administration
that ho was keeping too many policemen
In City Hall clerical positions by citing
figures, Bhowlng that there are now onl?
about one-fourth of tho number there
that hg found when ho nsBUmed posi
tion. At that time, ho said, thero wero
over 200 policemen In the City Hall doing
other duty than that of patrolmen. He
reduced this force to 62 men, nnd thl
number, he said, la not sufficient to do
the clerical work required. He has asked
Councils to grant him clerks, but they
have not scon fit to do so.
Tho criticism that tho thrco platoon
system Is responsible Mr tho Increased
number of robberies was unjustified, ha
added, Tho present system gets more and
better work from the men thnn tho two
platoon system. Philadelphia, ho said,
was tho last of tho largo cities to adopt
the three platoon Bystem and If, through
refusal to grant him more policemen, the
city must return to tho two platoon sys
tem and tho clllclcncy of tho forco Is
thereby i educed, Councils will have to
benr tho odium.
Lack of pollco In different pnrts of the
city and Councils' failure to grant appro
priations for nddltlonnl men, Superinten
dent of Pollco Iloblnson said today, Wero
responsible for 1133 robberies since Janu
ary 1. Police records show that the total
losses were close to $120,000.
Ho said that unless Councils granted
appropriations for more men, especially
in tho outlying sections, more robberies
would occur. Within the InBt 60 days
thero have been 47 highway robberies.
Most of these crimes were committed In
sections where policemen have to cover
beats moro than two miles long, In some
cases thrco miles long nnd a mile wide.
