I went into • picture show to spend a feW minutes •nd sat down on the aisle seat. There was a young man beside me who pres ently went out. I moved into the seat he occupied and within a short time he came back and inquired of a pocketbook. “He looked under the seat. I professed , ignorance of the loss and thought that was the end of it. However, a policeman came in. caused me to be led out and in the middle of the sidewalk and in th. presence of a great crowd that gathered 1 was virtually charged with being a pick pocket. I told the officer that T could make a bond up to $100,000 and asked him to go across to Burger’s or telephone Ooodal 1-Brown, with whom T have traded for years. This he would not do. “I then told him that Captain John ston had known me for 36 years and to telephone him. With that the officer hired by Birmingham said that under the cir cumstances he would not believe John ston or anyone else. Finally the cashier of the place, with whom 1 have not the i honor of an acquaintance, very nobly f ame out and told the officer that l had been a patron of the picture show for some months from time to time and was not a thug Finally, after undergoing humiliations that my years should have protected me from, T was allowed to go • way.

PHI DELTA PLANS FOR CONVENTION ARE MAPPED OUT — .. i Are Approved As Submitted—Mem- j bers of General Council of fra ternity Entertained At Newspaper Club—To Be Guests At Lunch To day At the Southern Club. Over 150 members of the Phi Della Theta fraternity, one’of the largest in the world, heard Dr. Guy Potter Den ton, president of the University of Ver mont. extoll thA virtues of fraterni ties at the Tutwiler hotel last night The occasion was the second formal function arranged for the general coundtl of the Phi’s, which is in ses sion here to assist in arranging for the forthcoming biennial meeting in December in this city. The keynote of Dr. Benton’s talk was that fra ternities as fraternities and what they stood for were on trial in America, especially In the south, and that it war the purpose of the Phi Delta Thetas to set such an example of ree- , titude of conduct as to leave no room for the oft heard criticisms of fra ternities in general. ‘‘I want to say to you gentle- \ men that we desire to show by our conduct that some charges against fraternities are untrue,” declared Dr. Benton last night to an as sembly which was all attention. ■‘There has been charged time and again that fraternities were incu bators of indolence, hotbeds of im mortality, and the original creative place of snobbery. T do not care to dignify such statements with any discussion but 1 want to say witn all possible positiveness what 1 believe fraternities, especially the one we have the honor of belonging to, stand for. It is for efficiency in studies; it is for the most circum spect deportment and it is dem ocracy pure and .undefiled. Have National Influence “It is natural for scholars and stu dents to seek congenial companions. Oftentimes 13 or 1 "• or 20 persons are as many as one cun really become attached to for personal social inter course. If It were not for fraternities those few men would flow into small clubs or sets. They would possess no national responsibility or spirit. They would have no great moral force or id.eas behind them and they would in reality become that which we cannot condone. “As it is fraternities such as the one we belong to has national and Inter national responsibilities. We have na tional officers and older members to check us up and we must stand for everything that is clean and noble and worth while, else as I say fraterni ties are a failure as are all colleges. We stand for the advancement of our generation. We want to improve upon that, which has been and which is of the present and we want to live up to the standards set by our forefathers and create something for those fol lowing us to be proud of. “I want to emphasize this truth that this general council has the right to take away the charter and expel every member thereof of any college of our 40 chapters, including two in Canada. A case in point 1 will recite. There is one chapter that has not come up to the requirements in studies, in deportment and in temperance. We gave that chapter three weeks to re cover itself under pain of expulsion, that was enough. This fraternity was the first that ever abolished wine at its banquet table. We have less intoxica tion than any fraternity that I know, of. We will not condone or look with favor or with submissiveiiess upon any excess in drink. “At the convention in Chicago two years ago, although it was New Year’s night and although T witnessed actions of men and women In the din ing rooms that I never dreamed would be enacted, T want to say that not one of our college men was the least bit intoxicated or acted unbecoming during that memorable night. We want to have a good time without any excess of intoxication or without being straight laced. We want to create the real college spirit and maintain such an example that those who are at liberty to become memoers of our fraternity will be the men chosen to pave the way in the world’s work of tomorrow. The men of today must be efficient. There is being exacted the strictest rectitude and i want to de clare that of fraternities this one is lending itself heartily to that move* ment. I Will Be Great Meeting ' “l want to say here that the forthcom ing meeting will be the greatest that wo have ever held (prolonged applause). It will be attended by between 900 and 1100 persons. They will include some of the most distinguished men of this country. (Continued on Laat Pave) ...I !

Bodeker authorized the state nent yesterday that he wouldn’t accept he office of chief of police for any con sideration. This declaration is considered significant n view of the fact* that the report has jeon circulated that Harry Jones, in the went of his election, would reappoint Mr. Bodeker chief. Mr. Jones, in the first place, has nothing to complain of in re gal'd to Martin Eagan, present chief, he j says, and in the second place has not considered Mr. Bodeker an applicant. "You may say for me.” said Mr. Bod I eker, “that 1 have not considered making an effort to be chief again, and that Harry Jones, a report to the contrary not withstanding. has never considered depos ing Chief Eagan. "And please add that in my present bus iness I am doing so much better than 1 did when chief of police, that 1 would not be chief again for any consideration. 1 trust that this statement, plain and un equivocal, will put to rest a false report which could have been circulated only in the hope of doing political harm to the candidacy of Mr. Jones.” Mr. Bodeker added that he was out of politics for all time to come. .I Call On Farmers of State to Meet Here Next Friday IVILL DISCUSS BEST METHOD OF HANDLING COTTON CHOP.

Culpepper Kxum followed Mr. Shook and said that "as a citizen of Birmingham I do hot believe this is tile time to raise a question of an increase in freight l'aies. 1 do not take tlie position tliul the rates are too low. But even If they were, at tilts time it would be more than a hardship on tills community and manufacturers generally were tlie Increase granted. "It is not within the province of this meeting to decide as lb the reasonable ness of the proposed increase. We only know that if the Increase is Rianted it would lie very detrimental in the best interests of Birmingham. Industries In this district have been discriminated against in outbound freight rates to such an extent that manufacturers of the same goods in Other cities can come to this city and successfully compete with local man ufacturers as to price. The increase should not lie granted." Julius Goslln. connected with a foundry company in Birmingham, stated that his company had come to Birmingham some years ago because of the freight rate on eoal and pig iron.

But only resterday was a letter received descrip live of Germany in the war fever, and -vritten from the standpoint of a Ger nar. passionate in her love of country. Mrs. Martha Toeplitz.

Her contention hat the right is with the German 1h in ontrast with the general mderstaiutiiig 3he writes Interesting lines regarding the Popularity of the Kaiser, who, she says, •hows himself to cheering thousands fre quently. The letter, dated Berlin. ..ugust 11, iu part follows: “Of course it was i marvelous ex perience to live through these days of intense excitement, to sen how tills whole nation rose as one in courage, self-sacrifice and unity. One cannot imagine and no pen *an desc ribe the scenes that have been going on dur ing the last weeks. There is not a family, rich or poor, high or low, which has not given up a lather, a son, a brother, or all of them. To se«* all these tine young chaps turn away from science, from ic.*t. from business to defend th<* country in this most cruel, most unjust war that has ever been in history, to see them march away smilingly, hopefully, most likely never to return; u. see the old mothers, ihe young wives with their babies is simply tearing one's heart to pieces. But if the despair, the horrors that are to come are beyond all ex pression, the wonderful courage, the singleness of thought, the finest patriotism is equally as overpowering. "The Kaiser Is the popular idol, fie embodies country and home. When ever he shows himself—-which is fre quently—he is surrounded by cheer ing thousands.

Simple as it was not an eye was dry.” In regard to the men In the field, this German patriot writes as follows: "The army is doing wonders. Russia France, England and so many smaller states are all bound on destroying tills beautiful country, tin* home of culture, of industry and science. It has be come too mighty, loo sucessful for them and they want to crush it into nothingness. But they \re having the devil of a time. Already lias the biggest fort In Belgium been taken, and tills most marvelous machinery, called the Germany army. Is moving like clockwork and is doing wonder ful and fearful execution. There isn't a drop of blood or a nerve in me that Isn’t wishing success for this old fatherland of mine which is defending Itself heroically against the most frightful odds, and has right and jus tice on Its side throughout." in another paragraph, Mrs. Toeplitz thus expresses herself regarding Ameri cans in Berlin: "The Americans ar** very popular here, but they do well to wear the lit tle flag of stars and stripes provided by the embassy.
