WALKER COUNTY DEPUTY KILLED Alleged Negro Murderer Es capes Fully Armed ONE ARREST IS MADE Negro Said to Have Been In Birming ham During Day—Man Arrested By Kennybrook May Be Murderer But Carter, a deputy sheriff, was shot and Instantly killed at 1 o’clock yester day morning at Jasper, Walker county, by a negro alleged to be Tom Owens, alias Tom Stewart, who escaped. Yesterday morning following the shoot ing Sheriff John Gray of Walker county notified all the authorities In nearby cities to watch out for the negro. Notification of the murder and escape rfnched Birmingham at 5:30 o’clock yes terday afternoon. Detectives were im mediately detailed to search a negro house on the Southside, and there the officers were informed that the negro Owens had If ft the shack at 4 o’clock after having slept all day. The officers were told that the negro was armed with a six-inch barrel pistol and threatened that he would never be taken alive. At 8 o’clock last night a long-distance telephone message from Flat Top from Deputy Sheriff Dave Kennebrook, stated that he had caught a negro fitting tne description of Tom Owens. Deputy Kinne brook stated that the negro denied hav ing killed Pat Carter, but admitted having killed a negro at Dora about two years ago. Deputy Kinnebrook will arrive at the county jail with the suspect this morning. According to the information regarding the shooting given out by Sheriff John Gray of Walker county it appears that the negroes, attending an entertainr.ient, had grown hilarious, when they were arrested by Deputy Carter. At the time of tho arrest the deputy took away a shctgun and ordered them to enter a cabin Jn order to thoroughly search them for weapons. One of the negroes entered and the other negro jumped on Deputy Carter. In the struggle that followed the negro Owens is alleged to have secured the pistol of Deputy Carter, killing the officer instant ly. Following the killing of the deputy the negro removed the cartridge belt of the dead man and also picking up his shotgun started off for parts unknown. Deputy Carter had been a regular officer under Sheriff Gray only for a few months. He was well known at Jasper, coming originally from Arkansas.

President Benton Arrives Last night Dr. Guy Potter Benton, pres ident of the Plii Delta Theta fraternity, and president of the University of Var ment, arrived. He headed a delegation of over 100 members that came on a special train over the Alabama Great Southern from Cincinnati. Dr. Benton was due here yesterday morning early but when he reached Chattanooga he found the Cincinnati contingent there and he left his train and spent the day with the party. Dr. Benton went immediately to ths Tut wiler with Mrs. Benton and their daugh ters, where the state suit had been en gaged for the general officers. He said that he did not have any statement to make except that the meeting was des tined to be one of the best ever held by the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and that some work of a most important nature would be transacted. "When I waB here at the meeting of the general council held the latter part of September I fell very much in love with this city," said Dr. Benton. "The re sult was that J asked Mrs. Benton and our daughters to come along to this con vention. I was impressed with the en thusiasm that characterized the members of the various committees having in hand the work of welcoming us and entertain ing us, and X was duly Impressed with the cordiality of the people of Birming ham. I hope that this convention will be the very best that we have ever held, and I am sure that will be the case. We hmave met here because the couth is growing in popularity and esteem all over the country, and I am very much inclined to believe that we have eome very impor tant work to do in this section, and for this section. There can be no doubt of the fact that this meeting in Birmingham will be of great importance, and X want every delegate to attend the meetings as they are scheduled. This fraternity is engaged in a serious work, and I am sure that the delegates will not be prone to neglect what Is to be transacted at this meeting." Other Officers Coming In addition to Dr. Benton, other mem bers of the general council to arrive yes terday included Frederick Cox. secretary of the fraternity; Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Henderson with the two Henderson chil dren. This morning Alexander Pope of Dallas, Tex., treasurer of the general council, will arrive. Mr. Henderson also is historian for the fraternity. He said that the trip to Birmingham was exceed ingly pleasant and he looked for a most successful and profitable meeting. Everything is In readiness for tho convention.

ADVERTISING MAN TELLS HOW HIS ADS ARE WRITTEN Age-Herald Publishes First of Series of Interviews With Ad Writers of Birmingham On Their Methods of Work. Jerome K. Sterne Says Clever Advertising Is Not Necessarily Profitable Advertising _ i Naturally the readers of The Age-Herald are just as much in terested in its advertising columns as"they are in its news col umns, and there is a real element of news in the methods by which the ad writers of Birmingham prepare their advertise ments. The Age-Herald proposes to publish a series of inter views with the ad writers of Birmingham about their work. The first is with Jerome K. Sterne. "Clever advertising is not necessari ly profitable advertising; profitable advertising is a truthful statement of matters concerning a business when the statement is news.” Briefly stated, thus Jerome K. Sterne, advertising manager of Love man, Joseph * Loeb, and one of the best known advertising men in this section, gives his belief as to what constitutes good advertising. Don’t Write For Critics "A man who writes an advertisement,” said Mr. Sterne yesterday, "and at the time wonders what other advertising men arc- going to think of It, does not writ# a profitable advertisement. The successful ad writer must forget his literary train ing and his rhetorical ability; he must write to sell goods, for advertising is noth ing else than a form of salesmanship. “Loveman, Joseph & Loeb's advertising Is not written. It is dictated. When any one writes an advertisement with a penoil or pqp or typewriter, he Is bound to un consciously tangle up with it a lot of lit erary nights of fancy and so forth; but when that man dictates an advertisement he talks it, and there never was a man who did not Confess a great difference in the way he wrote and the way he talked. Loveman, Joseph A Loeb's ad vertising must be 'ad talk’ and not a piece of literature. When the copy la dylcLated it Is put together just the same as If the man writing It was a salesman talking to a customer. Addressed to One Person "One thing that makes Loveman. Joseph A Loeb's advertising successful is that It is written to one person. The effect therefore is the same as when a salesman is talking to one person. Many people write advertisements like a man standing on a stump addressing a mass meeting of 5000 people. They mako their state ments In extravagant language and In great screaming, bold type like the man on the stump shouts extravagant state ments at the top of Ills voice. The same man, probably, If you engaged him in private conversation, would not make either such extravagant statements or shout them. He would be talking to one man Instead of 5000. That's what I mean when I say our advertising is written to on© person. ! "I think the most profitable policy in Loveman, Joseph & Loeb’s advertising is the complete elimination of comparative values, except when an actual reduction is made in our own price on an article—that is, if we should decide to lower the price at which an article formerly had been sold. That policy pays because it com* pletely eliminates deception and misrepre sentation. Women—and it is women who read advertisements more than men—are more or less credulous. Theforo this pol icy payfc because no woman ever reads a Loveman. sJoseph & Loeb advertisement and then is disappointed when she sees the article that was advertised. No merchant can experience a worse injury to his business than for a customer to se cure an impression of an article from the advertisement of it which is not borne out wrhen the customer actually sees the article itself. Must Tell Something New "Ads should be looked on as news of the business; they must be news of something new on the market, some attractive price, or anything that is news, and news is anything that people are interested In. When any kind of advertising ceases to be news it ceases to be good advertising. This store tries to advertise what people want when they want it. "You ask me for an example. Here is one. One of the best advertisements Loveman. Joseph & Loeb s store ever had. I think, was in The Age-Herald In No vember, 3913. It was an advertisement of a diamond sale. It sold $4000 worth of diamonds In one day. Why? Because It was an advertisement of what people wanted when they wanted it and at a price which they knew enabled them to save money. "Another example is a little one-column thiee-lnch ad wfe ran in The Age-Herald a few days ago simply announcing that wo had pecans for sale. Never before bad this store handled pecans. No one in town knew we had any from past ex perience. Yet that little ad sold 1000 pounds of pecans the sume day it ap peared. It was an advertisement of what people wanted when they wanted it, and by a firm that people knew did not mis represent through its advertisements. "Many merchants in Birmingham I have heard to remark to the effect that advertising here does not seem to pay hh well as In other towns. There are many reasons to be assigned for this. But one of the most important, In my estima tion, is this. More than in most towrns, some of the merchants of Birmingham are Inclined to misrepresent things—not by absolute falsehood, not by trickery—but by h wrong conniption of wrhat is good advertising. The people have recognized that fact and consequently they don’t re I spond to the ads like they w’ould If con i dltions were otherwise." Bulding Up—The Salesman By CARL H.

Many of them have sent com mittees to Birmingham In the interest of their claims, and a warm fight is expected to he waged In the conven tion for many chapters.

Carmichael of Good water Writes from Rotter dam About Scope of Work RHODES SCHOLARS AIDING STRICKEN » _ B. H. Branscomb of Birmingham la Also in Party—How Belgium Is Divided Into Various Relief Districts Two Alabama boys are now In Bel gium assisting in relief work. They are B. H. Branscomb of Birmingham and O. C. Carmichael of Goodwater Both are Rhodes scholars. The Age-Herald yesterday received an interesting letter from Mr. Car michael about the work for which he asks as wide publicity as possible. He thinks the whole state should know the importance of the task now confront ing the Belgian relief workers. Mr. Carmichael wrttes as follows: To the Editor of The Age-Herald: As a member of a party of Americans who are going into “Belgium to assist in the distribution of food thert, 1 am sending you a brief account of the work so far as we have been Initiated into it. At 8 o’clock on December 7 a party of seven (all Rhodes scholars but one>, left the Victoria station, London, for Rotterdam via Folkestone and Flush ing. Owing to the danger from mines wre did not leave Folkestone until the r.ext morning at S o’clock. After eight hours of sailing we reached Flushing, having successfully avoided all mines. We were delayed sometime at the cus toms In Flushing and did not leave till 6:15 p. m. We arrived in Rotter day at 8:30. This morning we were taken over to the office of the Belgium commission and Introduced to the plan of the work. It must be remembered that the first of the work was begun only six weeks ago and naturally there are many de tails yet to he worked out. However. It is easily seen, from the plan which I shall outline briefly, that th-* work Is already wrell under way. Three Committees There are three committees with which we have to deal. In the first place, there Is a committee in London whose function It Is to get up funds ami procure helpers for the actual work in Belgium. The members of this com mittee constitute the central commit tee for the entire work . The commit tee in Rotterdam has charge of the transportation since the food from all parts of the world Is sent here first and from Rotterdam as a base is dis tributed by train and canal boats into Belgium. The first cargoes sent In were held up by the Germans and taxed heavily but this was due merely to the fact that they didn't understand the na ture of the work that was being be gun. Now, the food is admitted free of freight charges and the tariff money exacted of the first cargo has boen re funded There is a central committeo sta tioned at Brussels whose function !t is to keep In touch with and direct the actual distribution of the food. Decides this central committee there are others of a subordinate character being es tablished in different parts of the country for the same purpose. There are then three main commit tees for the general organization and support of the work for the transpor tation of the foodstuffs, and for the Im mediate work of distribution and these are in London. Rotterdam aiul Brus sels, respectively. In addition to these, there is a separate committee for each of the nine different provinces into which the country has been divided for the purpose of this relief work, and working under them is a commit tee for each commune. The provincial and communal committees are com posed of Belgians, and the Americans being sent In now are to work in con nection with these committees as rep resentatives of the American govern ment. ^he plan Is to have from two to ihree Americans in each of the nine provinces and it will be our duty to see that the food which is sent in gets into the proper Belgian committees and not into German hands. It will fall to us also to see to it, as far as possible, that there is an impartial distribution of the food. Twelve In Party Thus far there have been 10 men sent Into Belgium for the work of supervis ion. There are seven in our party and flv» more have arrived tonlaht. All 12 of us expect to le^ve Rotterdam on Friday mornlna. the 11th, for Brussels, where we get our Anal Instructions before an* Ing Into our respective prrvlncea to begin the work. In most cases the men are going out In palrB, which is much better than going alone. The work Is not expected to be easy and certainly one will not have the pleasure of Jovial company among the people who have been so deprived of a fatherland any In many rases of house and home. The task of feeding so many people, especially under the present conditions of transportation, is by no means easy. We were told this morning that there are several thousands just now on the point of starvation and that to feed them all properly a ship load of food would have to arrive In Rotterdam for distribution every other day. The total expenditure of the entire organization for the relief of the Belgians is esti mated at $5,000,000 per month. In addi tion to the actual pecuniary expense there are more than a hundred workers who are giving their services free. From tills the enormtfV of the task of giving relief to the strlckon Belgians Is obvious. The part which America Is taking In this work will be, and Is, immensely appreclted by the Belgians and It will no doubt stand out in history as a faot worthy of our pride. It is therefore a work In which we all should assist to the extent of our opportunity and capacity. Eighteen Rhode* Scholars It would perhaps be of Interest to know who have already gone out Into the work of supervision and are now oil the way. Eighteen are Rhodes soholain. They are specially tilled for the work, first, because they are nearby, and. sec ondly. because most of them here learned more or less perfectly either German or French or both, through their travels on the coullnent. A knowl edge of German and French ia of course very helpful lr, the work In Be! glum, where one haa to deal with Ger Extra Money Above A.l “Bank Accounts” Plenty of people who have bank accounts use the American Savings Club for extra savings. It’s mighty good to come out of the small end of the year with an extra check, and it needn’t be a little one. Your other bank ac count won’t know where it came from but you’ll have it.

This lock has a lift of 02 feet and is the last and largest in the Warrior sys tem. Now that the lake is tilled the slack water reaches within 10 miles of Bes semer. At its longest point the lake stretches back from the dam for 00 miles, or far above Cordova. The water docs not quite reach Toudvlne on Val ley creek. Coal from Sypsey and Short Creek As soon as the lock gates are in stalled vessels from Mobile can load coal from Slpsey and Short Creek mines. When the dam was completed wooden autos were put In front of the lock chamber so that the lake could dll and the permanent gates will soon he put Into place. It is stated the dam Itself did not leak a drop of water during the pro cess of filling. Frlel Talks of Completion T. H. Frlel, who has been Interested ir. the water power possibilities of this dam, was greatly pleased last nlcht over the news that the lake had filled. "It Is a great event for Alabama,” ■aid Mr. Friel, "and of course much of the credit for this culmination is due to Senator Bankhead. He watched over it all the time and only recently if ha had not secured that emergency ap propriation the completion of the work would have been delayed at least six months. "Another man who deserves all kinds of plsise Is George K. Little, the gov ernment. engineer in charge of the Tus caloosa office. He was reared in Tusca loosa and taken particular pride id watching over the completion of th« Warrior system. lie has devoted all his energy to the task, and future year* will demonstrate the Importance of what he has done. Will Utilise Power • Naturally the completion of the lock menus much to us who are interested in power development. We have all our surveys and plans In hand ready to utilise this power as soon as Congress passes the pending law, which should be not later than February. The bill simply gives the Secretary of War au thority to grant the necessary permit for our work to begin.” ... ALLEGED FORGER Detectives Claim F. W. En stron Is Wanted In Win nipeg, Canada A well-dressed Individual was mingling with the crowds In the lobby of the Tut wiler about 4 o’clock yesterday after noon. Without ostentation two quietly dressed men entered the lobby and walked to the clerk's desk. A few' questions w’ere asked and the clerk pointed out the gentlemanly stroller. Then the two strangers walked Indifferently about the lobby until It seemed that by chance both met at the side of the \yell-dressed man in a quiet, secluded corner “We would like to see you at head quarters,” said Detectives llarry Gold stein and Detective Ben Brown on the other side nodded his head In an affirma tive way, “but lirst we will take you up to your room and search you-.“ “Me—w'hy me?” nervously asked the. well-dressed man, who had registered as V. W. Enstron of New Orleans. “Why should you want me?” “Buddy, we Just want to look you over," laughed Detective Goldstein, leading the W'ay to the elevator. In the room of En stron on the ninth floor a suitcase was dis covered which contained nearly a g^ss of parks of playing cards. There were also materials to change the spots on the cards and the outfit was dubbed by the police as the tools of a professional gam bler. At police headquarters Enstron was cross-examined by Detective UoldHteln for several hours, and he finally admit ted that he had left Winnipeg, Canada, last September. It was then that De tective Goldstein pulled out a circular from the Winnipeg police department of fering flOO reward for the arrest of John P. Simons on a charge of forgery. En stron fitted the description and it wan claimed was the exact prototype of the photographic reproduction on the Winni peg notice of arrest. However, Enstron would not admit that he was Simons. The Winnipeg police were notified of the arrest by telegraph. Detec tive Goldstein stated that the name Am man officials and a French speaking populace.
