The examinations were held in the jTcital hall of the school. There were eight contestants In the piano depart ment, and four in the vocal depart ment. Mis. Corrie Handley-Rice, Mrs. Laura Jackson-Davids, Miss Prudence Neff, Professor Grambs. and Robert Dolejsi wefe judges for the piano con testants, and Mrs. Rice, Mrs. Davids, Miss Lucile Green and Mr. Lawrence in vocal. Full scholarships were awarded Rolla Gray of Vinemont, in piano, and Miss Mildred Kahn of Bir mingham, In voice. Half scholarships went to Miss Helen Marsh and Miss Orline Barnett, both of Birmingham, in piano, and Irene Jenkins of Bessemer, in voice. So much talent was dis played by all the contestants that both Mrs. Neff and Mr. Lawrence gave ad ditional scholarships of one-third value each, which were awarded to Mrs. L. P. Hunt of Birmingham, and Miss Evelyn Green of Blocton, piano, and Miss Er cell Coyle of Birmingham in voice. . It is the desire of the women’s clubs in giving these scholarships to help develop the talented ydung people of ffhe state who are not financially able try help themselves. This object had something to do with the awards of the fudges, as had also the fact as to what advantage the applicants have taken of opportunities already given them. Perhaps the surprise of the entire I contest was the playing of Rolla Gray. This young man with his simple di rectness and entire lack of self-con rpiousness impressed all present. Tils mother has been his only teacher and l'6r years he was denied the pleasure *>f study because they had no piano. With all his lack of “finish” his nlay ing stood out like a clean cut cameo, and he was the unanimous choice of the judges for first honors. Mrs. C. C. Adams, chairman of the scholarship committee, and Mrs. Bost ick represented the women’s clubs. COMPLETE PLANS FOR WOMEN S DEPARTMENT Mrs. J. B.

It has been evident for sometime that some of the legislators and the commissioners were not in harmony on legislation needed for Birmingham. Yesterday five members of the dele gation, 1 Weakley,' Scott, Tarrant, Welch and Copeland, addressed a letter to President Ward evidently calculated to put the commissioners on the de fensive for their activity in trying to secure legislation affecting the city. In this letter they ask for informa tion on whether the people’s money is being spent to maintain a Birmingham lobby at Montgomery. They want to know the amount spent on such lobby. They ask how much of the people’s money lias been spent on telegrams sent to members of the legislature. They want a complete statement of the expenses of the committee of 100, including postage. They also want a complete statement of the city’s finances for July. Commissioner Ward was informed of liie contents of the letter last night by a representative of The Age-Her ald, and asked for a statement. Mr. Ward said that the letter had not yet reached him and that naturally he could not go into a discussion of the subject without tills letter before him. He indicated, however, that an an swer would be immediately forthcom ing as soon as he had received the communication. The latest development in the Bir mingham situation is told in the fol j.lowing dispatch from one of The Age ! Herald’s Montgomery correspondents j last night: Montgomery, August 10.—(Special)—Five members of the house Jefferson county delegates have formally inquired of George B. Ward, city commissioner, as to whether or not the city government is maintaining in Montgomery, a remuner ated lobby. The letter is significant as being in dicative of a practically irreconcilable break between Birmingham and men sup posed to be representing Birmingham in j the capacity of legislators. In other j words, Birmingham and its representa I tlves are nut working in harmony for the public welfare. Senator Judge. Representative Shapiro and Representative Hogan, local option members of the delegation and those con sidered friendly to Birmingham bills pend ing before the legislature did not sign the communication. Senator Judge and Representative Shapiro stated this after noon that they were not asked to sign the letter, and were not made aware that the letter had been written. Jt is believed that the same is true as con cerns Representative Hogan. •The legislators ask Commissioner Ward to announce the sum paid the lobby in tlie event the lobby is maintained. A.«? far as known, E. D. Smith, attorney, is the only map in Montgomery looking after the interests of Birmingham who Is remunerated for his services. “Hon George B. Ward. President.

Every housekeeper, merchant and manufacturer is asked to clear the premises inside and out of all trash and garbage. The request is made that it be placed in suitable re ceptacles and placed at the rear of the pi emise.s convenient to the garbage wag ons. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday every available wagon of the city will be put Into service for the purpose of col letting the garbage resulting from "clean up” day. Notwithstanding reports to the contrary, It Is stated that after August 16 the city will cut down Its garbage depart ment to meet the requnrements of the re cently adopted budget, and those behind this movement ask the earnest co-oper ation of every citizen in cleaning up pre paratory to the new sonditions. It has been suggested that much of the trash can be destroyed by burning it. which will materially aid the city in col lecting and disposing of the garbage which will necessarily be of large quantity us a n suit of the "clean-up” campaign. The further suggestion is made that every pre caution be taken In burning up the trash so as not to endanger the adjoining build ings.

E. Jackson, president of the Jefferson County bank, in an address yesterday before the members of the Birmingham Ad club at their regular weekly luncheon at the Tutwiler. "While the newspapers of this city and its best citizens have Tren fit to heap praise upon the offi cers of the institution for the record the bank has made since being re opened, I am of the opinion that the people of Birmingham and tills district itself are responsible for the success; we have had; not the personal efforts ol those connected with the bank." Mr. Jackson's remarks were very brief, and he said that speaking was not in his line. Me expressed his ap preciation of the courtesy of the Ad club in having him as its guest. President Holberg, in introducing Mr. Jackson to the members of th« '*ub, paid a high tribute to the press I >>f Birmingham, saying that without the line of dignified advertising which the bank did In newspapers before opening its doors, it would not have had the success which has been its portion. "While the name of A. FJ. Jackson .ias been in the mouth of every man, woman and child in Birmingham, the confidence the people have shown in the new bank. and the wonderful prominence it immediately assumed in 'iie business world of the city were given an Impetus by the dignified copy that appeared in The Age-Herald and the afternoon papers,” said Mr. Hol berg. "The very fact that there was a lack of anything that smacked of self-sufficiency and that the hank al lowed the public to draw Is own con clusions as to the absolute safety of this new financial organizaiton. was a thing that won the confidence of the Birmingham people before the massive doors of the Jefferson County bank were swung open a week ago yester day.” Mr. Holberg gave Mr. Jackson and the other officers of the bank full credit for the success that had accom panied them and referred glowingly to the fact that deposits in the new hank bad been five times as great as with drawals. He predicted that the growth of the bank would be a healthy one. Following the address of Mr. Jack son, John Sparrow proposed that Mr. Jackson be given a vote of thanks by the club for his presence. This mo tion was amended to make it a ris ing vote of thanks, which was accorded amid great applause.

DEFERS ACTION ON LANE’S MOTION TO POSTPONE CHANGE ;Garbage Question Will Be j Settled When Weatherly | Returns — Routine Mat ters Before Commission Resolutions seeking to defer the pro posed change In the system of collect ing garbage until October 1ft were In troduced by Commissioner A. O. Eanc at the regular meeting of the board ol city commissioners held yesterday aft ernoon. Owing to the absence of Com missioner Weatherly, who is in Mont gomery in the interest of the Birming ham bills, no action was taken on the resolutions.

In support of bis resolution Judge l ane stated that he was of the opin ion it would not be wise to make the change during the hot weather, as by deferring it a couple of months the danger from disease would be mini mized.

NO EXEMPTION FROM TAXATION FOR PIG IRON, SAVS M’QOEEN Local Corporation Official Says Montgomery Adver tiser Was Misinformed in Rebuking Birmingham Big Iron Is not exempt from tnxntlon as is tho impression being given by certain interests of tbe state which have attacked the city of Birmingham for its agitation against exemption of corporations of the state from taxation. A long editorial appeared In the Mont gomery Advertiser a few days ago In which the people of Birmingham were taken to task for their Alleged inconsis tency in the matter. It being charged that pig iron, the basis of Birmingham's de velopment and prosperity, had been ex empt from taxation since iw, while now the people of Birmingham were objecting to excn%tlon from taxation of other in terests. Local iron men Interviewed yesterday stated that there is no truth whatever in the charge that pig iron is exempt and that those so stating are merely tak ing advantage of a trivial thing and mak ing it to appear by inftuendo a very im portant thing. "Pig Iron is exempt from taxes in this state, and every other stale I know of.” stated J. W. McQueen, "for 12 months after its manufacture. That's all. it is not exempt because its pig iron or in or der that a sort of protection is desired for the development of the industry. "It Is the common practice In this country, in every state in which I am fa miliar with the laws, to exempt from taxation for 12 months such products ns are made out of tho raw materials, such as farmers’ crops and mineral products. Tt would be folly to attempt to tax a farmer’s cotton crop or wheat crop the minute he harvests It. "The whole Idea is to give tho man who takes a raw material and produces out of It a marketable product a chance to market It. A farmer must have sometime to«inarket his crop, or else he might sell it at a low price instead of waiting for a bettor price and running tho risk of having to pay taxes on It The same theory is applied to pig Iron. We are given 12 months in which to market it, and after thnt time whoever owns it has to pay taxes the same as on any other property. "f am n corporation man myself, nnd all that, hut I believe that none of us she uld be exempt from legitimate taxation for any reason. I think any state legis lature makes a mistake when it exempts any corporation or corporations or any class of property from taxation when other property in the same state is pay ing taxes.” Real Estate Transfers The following transfcrH of rial cs- * fate were yesterday recorded in the office of the probate Judge: IlfiOO- Kudin M.

His v\ork in "Broken Ways” is fully up to ids usual high standard and it Is a play worth seeing. At the Vaudette By special request of hundreds of patrons, the management of the Vaudette theatre announces a return engagement of the great Weber-Smalley drama. “Scandal," which was shown at the Vaudette two weeks ago to the largest crowds that ever witnessed a motion picture play in Birmingham. The crush was so great that the capacity of the theatre did not permit all who wished to vlewr the picture a chance to get inside. These hundreds have been urgent in their requests for a return date and today the picture will be shown. A special musical score which was com posed for “Scandal" will he played by a six-piece orchestra today. Tide Is the same score that was used by the Globe theatre orchestra In New York, when “Scandal” was the attraction at that playhouse. # “Scandal” Is an allegorical drama based cn the effect of Idle, malicious gossip on the lives of men and womep. The story | was written by Miss I«oIh Weber, the author and producer of the world-famed “Hypocrites,” who also produced this play’ It Is one of the greatest morality dramas ever filmed. Miss Weber tolls her story smoothly, dramatically and with logical sequence. She shows the groat harm which often comes from those miserable people who sc'em to find little else to do besides gos sip. It is a picture which shows Just v. hat a woman's jealousy and a man s indiscretion wifi do. The cast is wonderfully well fitted for the play. Jxds Weber as I>alsy Dean; Phillips Smalley as* William Wright and the other members of the cast are at their best.
