SAN FRANCISCO, July 22. Dr.
K. II. Tratt of Chicago, who was to
address the International Purity
Congress today on "The Actor, the
Stage and the IMay," astounded his
audience when he laid aside his
folded manuscript and turned loose
a volley of pointed criticism of the
propaganda ot the purists.
He was expected to follow out the ex
pressed Ideas of previous speakers who
have maintained that tho stage and
actors needed reforming. But the Chl
cagoan abandoned his text and declared
that the methods and standards of the
International Purity Congress needed
reformation before It could hope to erad
icate the evils It condemns.
"All the talk, steam and force of the
speakers of this convention," he said,
"are In line with suppression, suppres

to do about vice? fan you punish any
