WORK UNDER WAY
FOR GREAT LAKE AT NEW MOTOR CLUE Contractors Building 1000 Foot Dam to Impound the Water SPEEDWAY WILL BE THREE MILES ROUND Club Owns 380 Acres and Has Made Financial Arrangements to Carry Elaborate Country Club Plans—The Officers IJy CHARLES II. MANDY What | is probably the largest artificial fake in tthe United States for Bport and pleasure ^purposes Is being constructed ■within thnee and one-half miles of the Woodward building by the Birmingham Motor and- Country club, which has be gun work In earnest In developing Its large estate. A dam 1000 feet long, 20 feet high and 60 feet wide on top to provide for the specdway-boulevSrd, which will encircle the lake is now under construc tion, the contractors being Hill Bros., who have built many of the levees on the Mississippi river for the United States government. The lake is a mile and a half long and one-quarter of a mile wide, and will contain over 300,000,000 gallons of water. The lake will be formed of a t part of Shades valley and Is beautifully located. On three sides the natural banks are thickly wooded and with the construction of a speedway and a boulevard all around it will make an ideal spot for a day's outing. Boating, swimming and fishing will be the features, astwell as motor boat racing. The new officers of the club have made all the necessary financial arrangements to carry out the original purpose of the club, and they state they expect to make the club and grounds the \jnost attrac tive in the south. Officers of Club Charles E. Rice of the law firm of TIU Ofnan, Bradley & Morrow is president; Solon Jacobs, Tice president;1 Hngh F. Lat imer, second vice president; George A. Blinn, treasurer; John L. Shelby, secre tary. The board of directors consists of the above officers and II. B. Wheelock, G. T. Brazelton and T. II. Joy added. Mr. Rice stated that the club owns ,1S0 acres, with a beautiful clubhouse already built. lie states that the work of build ing the lake and the other Improvements will be carried on to a speedy completion and predicts that the club will provo one of the big assets of the city. He and the other directors are very enthusiastic over the proposition and have great and abid ing faith in the future popularity of the club. The Edgewood car line has been ex tended 1100 feet into the club grounds, and will be extended about 600 feet further to a point within 200 feet of the clubhouse. Artesian wells have been bored on the property and more than one mile of road way built on the club grounds. The men on the board of directors have under taken the development of this purely at* a matter of civic pride. They intend giving Birmingham the biggest thing of its kind in the United States. The goll links will be an 18-hole course, built under the supervision of the expert ob tainable. The lake will have a large sand beach for the bathers, and the depth ol 6 to 14 feet is sufficient fof large motor boats and launches, while there will also be a number of sailboats. Speedway Three Miles The speedway-boulevard will be more than three miles around the lake, and will be banked on the turns to allow the fast est driving. Fishing will be quite an at tractive sport, and In addition to the bream and trout already in Shades creek, other suitable fish will be se<?u|c*d from the national government to stock the lake. The club will take an active part in good roads work, and will also render ser vice to motorists in various ways, such as keeping perfect and get enacted law's per taining to traffic and motoring, and .sup plying route, records for tourists. At present there are 483 members of this club, but this will be increased to 3000 during the summer. A large number of out-of-town members will be secured also. The officers of the club are considering the setting aside for the free us of the public the arm of the lake that comes up alqngside the Edgewood car line outside the club’s grounds, and also a five-acre tract across the car lino and the Colum biana pike from this small lake. These can be used by persons not members of the club. Of course the big lake, club house and grounds proper will be for the exclusive use of the club members. Domitory at Club The dormitory addition to the clubhouse will afford the members a place easily reached at the end of a hot summer day, where they can enjoy a night’s rest in cool mountain air, a swim in the lake at sunup and a good breakfast, and back to work in a 30-minute car ride. The out of-town members can bring their families here instead of taking*them to North Car olina. Solon Jacobs, In speaking of this club, said he could not help but compare the work of building this club and present conditions with the w’ork. of the few faith ful ones who built the present Athletic club, and the conditions that prevailed at that time in Birmingham. "There were few people in Birmingham then," he said, "compared to the present population of 185,000, and the city was so new, the people nearlj' all newcomers and strangers to each other that it was dif ficult to get them to w>ork together for anything. In fact, a number of the wiser and more conservative ones said, ‘You can’t do it.’ But enthusiasm and youth prevailed, and today the Athletic club has a handsome home, which is practically all paid for. Of counse, Birmingham has grown into a big city, but there is still too much of that same spirit of ‘You can t do it.’ When we eliminate this spirit, At lanta will have to take a baeik seat. "The crowd of men buildfcng this Bir mingham Motor and Country club can do anything in Birmingham, and the day is not far distant w’hen the magnificent body of land so close to the heart of the city, wlt-h a lake one and one-half miles long, will be appreciated. I do -not hesitate to say. 'There Is nothing liketlt in the coun try. Hugh I/atlmer says he takes a great pride, in this big outdoor playground, and that bo feels satisfied the best people of Birmingham and the estate at large will appreciate a club of tdiis kind run In a good, clean manner. John\Shelby, the Rotsarian, is greatly en thused Vover the club '.and says It Is like Rotarianism. in that y«ou do good for oth ers. He and George Blinn recently visited Atlanta, and were very proudly shown by some of their Atlanta friends the Capitol City’s club’s town chub and then drive 12 miles out to its country club, all of which was very pretty indeed, but both Mr. Shelby and Mr. Blinn returned to Bir mingham more pleased than ever with the Birmingham Motor and Country club, and say tbat when it is,»completed Atlanta's , clubs will not standi a show by compari son.

The Southern Industrial Edu cational association, founded by a former Alabama woman, Mrs. Martha S. Gielow of Greensboro, has aided these mountain schools materially. 'In North Carolina, Virginia and elsewhere the association has introduced industrial departments into the mountain schools. The very poor and the many homeless children of the remote country districts are gatn *red into these institutions, which are prac tically homes, orphan asylums, and boarding schools all in one. The buildings are the plainest Imaginable, for these mountain schools are pitifully poor. There is no attempt at luxury and little chance for what seem necessary conven iences. In them the children are given food and shelter and are taught the way to sane and sanitary living. Somehow Alabama has neglected to go into this field. She has schools and schools and schools and yet there are many of her children who remain un provided for and untrained. It is an ac tual fact that there are thousands of white children of school age in Alabama who do not enter school at all. One re liable authority places the number of these children at 100,000. While many do not go to school on account of indiffer ence In their homes, there are many oth ers who are out of school ‘because they have little or no opportunity to attend. A peculiar case Is that of a family liv ing about 15 miles from Birmingham. A family of six children have been reared by their aunt since the death of their mother and the refusal of their father to support them. The aunt has been an excellent mother* to them but she has never pent them to school, for she firmly relieves that the few months her brother, fhelr father, spent in senool are responsi ble for his utter worthlessness. In a county adjoining this has been lived a veritable tragedy of a life for a certain family. One hot summer day there ap peared at one of the cottages of a sum mer colony two girls anud a boy. The girls were 16 and 38 and their brother was younger. All three were barefooted ana scantily and poorly dressed. They were as sunburned and workworn as if they had never known anything but the hardest kind of inanuel labor. They were making a crop, they said, out their sup ply of food was exhausted, and they had gone over to the village to sell a. few po tatoes. The boy had a sack of potatoes on his shoulder and they were trying to sell these so they could buy soma meal. They had walked six mile.? and would walk six miles back to their home. In their lives there had never been and would never be anything but drudgery; they will never know anything of the beauty of life. School, with all its means o ftraining, development and improve ment had no place In their lives, yet they were intelligent and energetic and they could have learned to be capable and in dependent if they had only hud a little help and encouragement. Theirs was not an unparalleled case, for later two women who were neighbors of theirs paid a visit to the summer colony. They were probably 25 and 45 years old and they .represented the extreme jf pov erty of every sort. One of them was bare footed, and they w'ere so poor and their lives were so barren that they were bit ter and suspicious, and they seem°d crushed and depressed beyond recall. All about In those hills there w'ere, and are. just such cases. There are boys and girls who are becoming men and women wdth out a chance for anything more than a life of toil and a struggle for mera exist ence. These children are worth helping; they deserve a chance, *and they are worthy of far more than they receive from the wealth of those who could and should help them. With all that is given for charity and with all that Is done f* r the poor, the fact rgmains that the children of the state’s poorer native whites have been neglected. Many of them are the kind that does not ask help, many are too proud to seem dependent, and they aro the very ones who need help enough to start them on the way to self-help. A few succeed with no help, but they are the very few, and that is too much to ask or expect of a child. It remained for a south Alabama man to take definite steps to aid these chil dren. This Is Mr. J. M. Shofner, a Meth odist minister. Tn his years of traveling and visiting as a pastor, he came to feel that he was needed not as a preacher, but as a teacher; not to tell people how to live that they might know l.ow to die, but to show them how to live that their lives here and hereafter might not be the empty mockery of a life that he saw' all too often. In villages, in the county, here and there, he saw girls who so much needed a knowledge of sewing, cooking, house keeping, dairying and gardening. He saw so many girls who needed and de served an opportunity to make something useful and beautiful of their lives Instead of becoming Inefficient and unhappy household drudges. Sometimes it was the daughter of the house, sometimes an or phan girl who lived as an adopted daugh ter in the home of a neighbor or a rela tive, sometimes a girl who served as a domestic. Mr. Shofner’s realization of tlm pressing demand for a home school where these girls could be taught and trained to fill the place that was theirs was the begin ning of the Downing Industrial School for Girls. It Is located near Brewton, Ala., in Escambia county. This is In the ex treme southern part of Alabama, near the Florida line. For years it has been a lumber district, acres and acres of pine trees furnishing timber for the saw’ mills. As the timber has been cut the land has been converted Into farms, and a new V- 1 ' The Bank That Renders the Full Measure oi Service Is Operated For Its Patrons And the fundamental rule of this progressive hank is ser vice.

Brewton is one of the larg er towns of the district. For the less well-to-do girls of this sec tion was the school established. As to hli reasons for having the school for girl! exclusively, Mr. Shofner says those girli are at a greater disadvantage in point o self-reliance and independence than an their brothers. Then, too, for the ulti mate good, for the sake of future homes the education of the girls seemed mosi essential. The object of the school Is t< develop happy, competent homemaker! of the girls who do not have in their owi homes the opportunity to become sucl women. Mr. Shofner has said that the establish ment of the school seems a realization o: the impossible. It was begun 10 yeari ago with absolutely nothing but his de termination nnd an abiding faith that s< worthy an undertaking could not fail. Mr Shofner began without the support o any organization. He bought a few acrei of land and erected the first building it his own name. In 1906 the school was or ganized and incorporated urider the nami of the Downing Educational society. I was named In honor of Mr. E. Downing a personal friend of Mr. Shofner and ar earnest advocate of the Institution. Es cambia county was Mr. Downing's hom< during ids entire life. He made his owi way and rose to an enviable social anc financial position. Doubtless remember ing his own struggle, he helped the schoo from the outset, and later guaranteed the $10,000 Brewton endowment fund. The first money ever contributed wai $100, given by Miss Martha Vincent o: Rehoboth, Ala. The next was a contri button of the same amount from Miss Grace Dodge of New' York. After an un pretentious beginning had been made anc just when it seemed the work would hav< to be abandoned for want of funds, Mrs Martha Gielow of the Southern Industria Educational association investigated tin school, saw' what it proposed to do anc what place It hoped to fill, and she be came thoroughly In sympathy with the Institution. Through her relation w'ltl the association the Downing school has received substantial help.

C. Richardson of New Orleans, the latter the only sister of Mrs. Richardson. The private car Tennessee of Mr. Crawford’s was attached to the Queen and Crescent train for New Or leans last night. The funeral services were held yester day afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Gordon Crawford, and were conducted by the Rev. Willoughby New ton Claybrook, rector of St. Mary’s-on the-Hlghlands. Mrs. Richardson was a communicant of the Episcopal church. The interment will take place this aft ernoon In Metaire cemetery In New Or leans. Mrs. Richardson’s death resulted from a protracted indisposition, which neces sitated two operations, the last one be ing performed 24 hours preceding her death at the hospital. She was indisposed for some months, and frequently visited her daughter here, as Improvements were noted while In Birmingham.

A Neal and other local citizens are large stockholders. What South Americans Think The American's chief difficulty lr South America la that he la not un derstood, writes J. A. Hammerton, lr Harper’s Weekly. Everywhere through out the spacious lands of these repub lies the Englishman Is known and hon ored. When two natives are making n bargain and one of them wishes tc exact from the other the utmost pledge of honor, he says, shaking hands or it: Palabra lnglesa? And the other re plies with Latin solemnity: Palabra ln glesa. That Is to say, "the word of ar Englishman." But they are not Eng lishmen who are bargaining and the result may be different. Again, wher one wants a friend to meet him punc tually, he adds the words hora Ingless (literally "English time," or “at such and-such an hour prompt"). But, again as they are not Englishmen who art making the assignment It Is safe bet ting the one will be half-an-hour late and the other three-quarters. Still the fact remains that English honor and English punctuality are universally recognized by people who are dimly struggling towards these Ideals. On the other hand, when the mattei In question Is one of suspicion, wher there is reason to suspect trickery what Is the phrase wo find on tho lips of the South Americans, what comet readiest to the pen of the Journalist’ Often have I heard, frequently have 1 read, some such sentence as this: Er fin, estamoB convencldo que el nsunto no es mas que un "yanqut bluff." ("In short, we are convinced the matter Is nothing more than a Yankee bluff.") Yes, It Is rather a painful reflection to the American that yanqul bluff (pro nounced "Yankee bloof") should have become the stereotyped phrase for any t of swindle. But It Is a fact, and of course It must derive from some due cause. There Is more than one reason for this slur. At least, I think I can ad vance several. In the firBt place, the American Is badly represented In the south. Outside of Bolivia, Peru, and parts of Chile, where the great mineral wealth has attracted many American prospectors, one Bees few evidences of American activity, but finds In the Ar gentine and In the populous centers of Chile frequent traces of some ”get rlch-qulck" faker, who has passed that way. Nor are the American employes one encounters representative of the beet. There may be a natural expla nation of this In the fact that the United States, offering so many oppor tunities to Its worthiest citizens within the broad lands of the "old flag,’’ has had to spare for South America only a lower grade worker! At all events, there Is a general feeling In these coun tries that since most able Americans can do well enough at home, it Is a fair supposition that those who have come to South America are not of the best. The same feeling does not ob tain In respect to the English nor the Germans, for the obvious rsason that sent $1250 and gave $5000 for the erectio' of a building. This is the Pauline Taylo hall, as Miss Taylor asked that ft bea her sister’s name. Miss Taylor’s last gif i was $15,000. Mr. Downing’s contributions have al i ready been mentioned. Another Escambli ■ county man who made generous dona i tions was Mr. C. D. Wiggins. He wa one of the very successful sawmill oper ators of that district, and he was note' for his generosity In helping lndividua cases of need and for Ills support of al i worthy causes. Several business mei have given scholarship upon Mr. Sof ner’s recommendation of certain cases Records show contributions ranging fron 6 cents to $10,000 In single gifts. The schoc ’ now has property valued at $44,619.11 am an endowment fund of $23,287.50, bearing per cent interest. It has been a long, hard struggle V reach this point. Not until two years ag' ' could electric lights and waterworks b afforded. During the past year a nev . brick dormitory of 32 rooms hafc beei built. Electric lights have been put In al i tho buildings, a flowing well has beei , bored, and a laundry department ha been established. The girls are taught needlework am dressmaking, and they do their own sew i lug under the direction of the teacher Each girl works an hour or more a da: In the dining room and kitchen, ant learns cooking and dairying by actua , experience. In one sense the school is i i big home where the girls learn to d< skillfully and properly the various kind; i of work required of a homemaker. Fo the past summer or two several girl; have been staying at the school and can nlng vegetables. The school gives then their board and they can make enougl money to pay most of their expenses fo; i the next term. On the school farm veg etables are raised for tho table and foi the local market, beside those that an canned. Winter before last $100 was real ized from half an aero of cabbage. In the literary department are the reg i ular grammar grades and high schoo classes, with state-adopted text book! and course of study. There is a largi piano class and a chorus. A husjnes: course including stenography, typewrit , Ing and bookkeeping has been a featur their countries are spilling over wit! competent men for use In foreign fields. I do not submit this as my own opin ion, but I must confess that the North American type in South America is not calculated to inspinre the native with any exalted idea of the American al home. A Misconstrued Situation “How are you getting along at youi new place?" asked a lady of a girl wnon slie had recommended for a situation. "Very well, thank you," answered th( girl. "I am glad to hear It," said the lady "Your employer is a very nice person aud you can't do too much for her." "I don’t mean to," replied the girl. Didn’t Seem Enough From Judge. "My goodness, Pat,” protested Mr. Skids, "the man was guilty! Why don’ you convict him?” "Bcgorra," replied Pat, “hanging would have been too good for him." 11 of the school for some time. This course r may be taken exclusively or In addition - to the English course. A late addition is t the summer session with special classes for those preparing for the state teach - ers' examination and for girls who want l extra study for the high school classes. - The music and business departments are i open during this time. The school has cared for some splendid i girl*:—girls who would have lived nar 1 row’, incomplete existences if they had 1 not had this home school within their i reach. A girl of whom the school Is espe - daily proud is now one of the teachers. . She went to the school in the summer i of 1910 and was given a scholarship. Her 1 mother paid for her nooks and clothes. I She graduated In 1913, and remains in the i school as a teacher. Mr. Shofner says that she alone Is worth all the efforts and ) money the Institution has cost, even if > she had been the only girl ever benefited i by it. r The school has been a home ror three i sifters, triplets, whose mother is dead. I They are energetic, happy girls and in the i school they have the best substitute for j a home. It Is a far better home than many girls know for it gives them proper l training in all home duties and it teaches ■ them how to live to the best advantage in the sphere they will occupy. It trams ■ mind and heart and body, and fills each I day with work and play that will make I the girls’ lives really worth living. The day begins with cooking oreakfast. > Then all troops to the long dining hall. » Next comes house cleaning, chapel exer • cises, several hours In the classrooms, ; at the pianos or over typewriters and ledgers, preparation of dinner, churning, , gathering vegetables. A half hour • r i more is spent in sewing; there is a game • of basket ball, a walk, a bit of work in the garden or the dairy, an hour’s study, ’ a- Y. W. C. A. meeting, chorus or piano • practice, and there are teachers to show the girls how to do each of these things in the best way. The girls are those who ask i nly a ■ chance, and the school means to give1 i them that chance. No more worthy un i dertaking .could be found and none de i serves more the sympathy of Alabamians than does this one that helps Alabama » girls. What Father Said Prom the National Monthly. A little 6-year-old tot had gone her first day to school. Teacher had quite a time getting her to tell her last name. That evening after school she was playing with a little friend and the “last name’’ subject was brought up.

The present drilling Is being done neat Atwood In Franklin county, which Is on the Illinois Central railroad. Mr. Hob son's intentions are to drill six wells in the sand slopes In this vicinity.
