Informal class teas were served again on the lawn from 5 to 7 o’clock. Play Given on Campus This evening the Thalian Players, a company secured in Chicago, and brought here for this purpose, are giving a per formance on the improvised lawn stage on which the scenes of last night's sunset pageant were given. Those who had witnessed the per formances of the Sunset pagent pre vious to the final presentation of the plays of lasl night were unable to anticipate the grandeur of the scenes and the elaborate expenditure of the performance. Many of the men and women who came down from the north ern universities to witness the per formance were very generous in their praise of the undertaking, and in some instances were skeptical of the ability of Judson to carry out the programme as outlined, but today say the event will hr* copied by many large universi ties during the next two years. There were 1000 to witness the per formance. in which no less than 500 persons took place, and the costumes which represented every period -of Judson. history, as well as almost every century for 1000 years, there were no two alike. And with the blending of i he colors, the movement of the rythm and the beauty of the young women the scenes were the most splendid to have j over been staged in the southland. Recommendations Agreed lo 'Pile board of trustees of Judson ad journed today after making a complete examination of the affairs of tlie in stitution. All of the recommendations of the president were agreed to and so far as practicable the present facul ty were re-elected, some changes be ing made each year among the minor members of the music department.

I _ __ __ MUCH INTEREST HERE IN~ NAT GOODWIN’S MARRIAGE I The announcement that Nat Goodwin, the actor, is to again enter the bonds of matrimony arouses considerable interest •here by reason of his wide acquaintance in Birmingham, and also the fact that Mis« Moreland is also known in Birminng liarn. The announcement recalls to mind the appearance here of the well known actor last fall. His car was being switched on to a special train when a re porter happened to spy the actor in the observation compartment. Few actors or actresses are afraid of reporters, so he was asked for an audience. “Sure, come right in," replied Mr. Goodwin in answer to the request. ••Tell us the story without any prelimi naries. ' he was asked. “Well, I am passing through," he said, reaching for a bottle of Scotch and shuf jllng a deck of cards. "1 will be back to Birmingham next week for an engage ment. You know, I have as my leading lady Miss Moreland. She is a southern Kiri. “And believe me. she is wonderful. She is a perfect dream. In that connection J •hope you will understand that I know what I am talking about. Hey! Miss Moreland is an accomplished actress and a fine, dear woman.” it was suspected that the comedian had some matrimonial intentions toward his charming leading woman of whom lie raved. When later it became known that in trying to serve her he was almost drowned on the California coast, there was little doubt but what the announce ment of yesterday would come along in due course of,time. Mr. Goodwin has played golf here many times. Me is not unwilling to discuss his matrimonial ventures, and to many per sons in this city the “real” story lias been often told. He has been married four times, the most famous beauty of the quartet being Edna Goodrich, now playing in vaudeville at Hammerstein's theatre in New York. SUNNY DAY GENEROUS WELCOME TO W. H. PAGE Liverpool, May Jl.—“That’s what I call a generous welcome,” was the comment of Waite/ Hines Page, American ambas sador at London, when he landed here today from the liner Baltic. He referred to the sunny day wlucti he thoroughly enjoyed after the chill which had pre vailed outside the bar and on the Mersey. The ambassador was met by Irwin if. Laughlln, seeretarv of the American em bassy. and Horace Lee 'Washington, American consul at Liverpool, and was cheered by a considerable crowd. The Stars and Stripes and union ja* Us were ; seen in all directions. “I am glad to see you," Ambassador1 Page said to the reporters, “but I have nothing to say.” Mr. Page then glanced at newspaper re ports of interviews with him before he left New York and at Queenstown. He repudiated ,a report crediting him with saying that' because be was not rich, he had no Intention of entering largely into j society functions. He warded off political I questions. HAYNE AND BROWN WILL BE REINDICTED Alleged to Have Conspired to Corner Cotton Mar ket in 1909 New York. May 24.—The department of justice has decided to seek the re-indict ment of Frank Hayne and William P. Brown of New Orleans; Eugene Scales of Texas and Col. Robert M. Thompson of New York on the charge that they con spired to corner the cotton crop of 19C9. This was learned today when subpoenas were Issued by United States District At torney Marshall for the appearance next week before tlie federal grand jury if the witnesses upon whose testimony the indictment now standing against them was found. The document contains flaws, it is un derstood, which t he government fears might stand in the way of conviction. It charged that, with James A. Patten of Chicago, the defendants conspired to cre ate a bull pool with the intention of artifi cially raising the price of cotton to obtain a profit of $10,000,000. Patton pleaded guilty last February to the sixth count of the indictment, known as the "contract count." which alleged that the defendants entered into contracts to buy up all the raw cotton produced in 1909 and to hold it out of the market until November. 1910. He was fined $400 and under an agreement between him and the department of justice the other counts were nolled.

Thompson Tells What the Alabama Land Con gress Is Doing In order to facilitate the movement o obtain desirable white farmers for the unused lands of Alabama, five railroad I presidents have been Invited to attend the I meeting of the Alabama Land congress 1 1° Birmingham In November. Col. N. F.^Thompson, president of the land congress, yesterday gave out the following statement as to what the so ciety was doing in this direction: "It was che announced policy at the Mo bile meeting that the first year’s work of the land congress should be devoted to educational and organizing work, In order to make It easier to obtain desirable set | tiers for Alabama, but It had been found j that these classes were difficult to locate i in many portions of the state owing to j unfavorable conditions in those localities. | A man with a family to educate, who | had been accustomed to good schools, and j where he could get banking accommoda j tions on reasonable terms, was confront ed with the absence of these conditions, and the further difficulty in marketing his crops to advantage, to say nothing of the want of good road* and those social environments to which he had been ac customed. "The land congress set itself to the task of getting the business men of the town and cities of the state to take up t-hese problems as a condition precedent for the advancement of Alabama, and j much has been done in this direction, so I now the land congress Is preparing to take up this larger problem of settlers, and to this end it has Invited the presi dents of five leading railroads in the state, the Southern, the Louisville q,nd Nash ville. the Frisco, the Illinois Central and the Seaboard, to attend the meeting of the congress to be held in Birmingham next November. It was believed that tlie mere assem bling of these officials at that meeting would attract the widest publicity to Ala I bama, and of itself prove of great advan I tage in the direction Indicated, and several of these had been seen and their, influ ence pleged In securing thd others, but j | there came a sudden hesitancy from these j | sources due to recent political announce- | ! ments. and It is now a work for the pub lic spirited citizens of the stats to take j up in order to aid in satisfying these* of ficials that their coming to ajp .an.,* • that time will not be taken ai| vaota*. j by the politicians and used for then : sonul ends. "There is no question but thi; th< cu** - ! ing of these railroad officiate wt n tie] principal landowners of the stptfft* ..end to gether considering how they y^iV'vcHt co operate the securing of riofifH* •tiers for Alabama, would p«A''* of li" grealcfti important*.’’ _ .
