That this combined committee study the whole matter until the next meeting of the synod, and bring in a detailed report revealing the duplica tions of committee work, to suggest , how to coordinate these activites; curtail expense of management 7 and present any other plans they think will forward synod’s work. s 6. The committee be empowered to elect an executive secretary and such assistants as he needs. The report was vigorously discussed, but finally an amendment offered by Dr. C. M. Richards, of Davidson to appoint these members named in the report as an ad interim committee to consider the question and report to the next synold, was adopted. Religious Education. The report of Religious Education was presented by Rev. T. G. Tate, of Gastonia. This report shows that there are 67,426 pupils in our Sunday schools of which 1,590 joined the church during the year. Forty-one daily vacation Bible schools were held in the synod this summer in which 2,500 pupils were gathered. There were 25 training schools held for teachers during the year under the supervision of Mr. Claude T. Carr, the superintendent of Religion Edu cation in the synod. Credits, given in these schools, 1,818. During June the annual young peo ple’s conference was conducted at Davidson College attended by 411 young people. And in all the pres byteries echo conferences were con ducted. | Presbyterian Sttdents In State Insti tutions. Dr. E. B. Gillespie, superintendent of home missions, whose office is in Greensboro, said that we have 900 young men and women in State schools at Greensboro, Chapel Hill, State Col lege at Raleigh, and Greenville who are from Preshiyterian homes. This is fifteen per cent, of the whole num ber of student. At Greensboro, a paid worker, a young woman works with the 200 Presbyterian girls. At Chapel Hill the pastor is supported largely by synod funds, which also is tnw at Raleigh, where a new church has been established near State Col lege. The Orphanage at Barium Springs. Dr. R. A. White, Mooresville, made the report on the orphanage. The report shows that the synod had contributed $98,500 to this work, com ing as follows: From the churches, $48,000; from the Sunday echools, $12,500; from the personal gifts and so forth, $38,000. There are 355 chil dren in the institution. The budget of the orphanage is $107,000. They are $44,733 in debt. Only $24,500 has come in thus far in the last six months, or half the synod’s year. Dr. tVhite introduced Joseph B. Johnston, manager of the orphanage, who addressed the synod. Mr. Johns ton made a stirring appeal for better support to this largest enterprise of the synod. It has the look of pros perity, and many neglect the institu tion for that reason. Said Mr. Johns ton, “If we were growing weeds in our lawns, instead of flowers, and if the shingles were dropping out of our roof, you would have pity on us.” The report of the committee was adopted, and the overture of Concord Presbytery was adopted that one Sun day in April be set aside as Orphanage Day for a special offering in addition to the budget and the gifts from Sun day schools and on Thanksgiving Day. It was also moved that some relief be given to Mr. J. B. Johnston in so liciting funds for the orphanage so he may devote the most of his time to administration work at the institu tion. " The committee of bills and over tures report was being considered when synod adjourned for lunch to re convene at 2 o’clock. Synod will ably adjourn till next year this eve ning. RICHARDS FIRES STAR DETECTIVE Revokes Commission of W. W. Rogers Without Giving Explanation. Columbia, Oct. 3.—Governor Rich ards this afternoon revoked the com mission of W. W. Rogers as a state constable and detective. ’ Rogers has in recent weeks been serving as state detective without compensation from the government. He left the governor’s staff of detec tives during the summer when the chief executive did not reappoint him, but on recommendation of the Rich land county delegation, Rogers was given a commission on a non-pay basis. He has, since leaving the gover nor’s staff, conducted a private de tective agency here. The governor said that .he bad no statement to make with regard to the revocation of the commission. This, the governor has indicated, appeared as an effort to embarrass him in connection with the case. HUGGINS READY TO GAMBLE ON YOUNG PITCHER IN GAME , With One Victory to Cred it of Yankees Manager k Sends Pigras to Mound in Second Big Battle. ALDRIDGE THE HOPE OF CREW : He Will Work Against the Yanks and Experts Be- N Heve He Will Give Them Mound Trouble. (Speeilal to The Tribune.) Forbes Field, Pittsburgh, Oct. 6. — | After dropping the first game of the World Series to the Yankees largely because his team failed to function ■up to its real class, Donie Bush marshalled his forces here today to “do or die” in the second contest. Vic Aldridge, picked by experts oyer the country as the one Pirate stinger likely to give the Yankees most trouble in the series, warmed up slowly and confidently. Realizing that it was up to him to bring tne Corsairs back to par before the con testing teams entrain for the Yanxee Stadium, the blonde righthander was • out to show Ruth, Gehrig et al mors twisting curves than they have seen in many a day. Johnny Gooch was behind the bat when the teams took the field, replacing “Oil” Smith, who made a costly error in yesterday’s melee. George Pigrass, inexperienced in World Series competition, but con sidered by Manager Huggins as the homing star right-hander of the [ American League, was annoupced as ' the New York mound selection. The ■ former South Atlantic leaguer earned his right to start this "snie by tum , ing in four brilliant exhibitions in , the final month of the regular Ameri can League season. Most of the attention was again , centered on Babe Rath and Lon . Gehrig of the Yankees and on the ( Waner brothers of the home club. Speculation was rife as to which, if ’ either, of the four would have the highest batting percentage when the final game has been played. Several bets werj made on the number of series games that Wiley Moore and his famous “sinker” r- ild see action. It is generally thong™ that Huggins will call on his relief ace in every ■ gam* that Ms starting hnrier begins to wabble it crucial moments. Benny Bengough was named as Pifrgras’ battery mate. The line-up: New York Pittsburgh 1 Combs, cf. L. Waner, er. 1 Koenig, ss. Bamhardt, If. Ruth. rs. P. Waner, rs. Gehrig, lb. Wright, ss. Meusel, If. Traynor, 3b. Lazzeri, 2b. Grantham. 2b. Dugan. 3b.

Waner. Three runs, four hits, one error. Pipgras To Pitch. Pittsburgh, Oct. 6.—C4 3 )—Finding himself in a position to gamble, as the result of the Yankees’ 5 to 4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirate in the open ing game of the Worlds Series, Man ager Miller Huggins today crossed experts by naming George Pipgras to pitch for the Yankees iir the second game. The' New York manager, who is always willing to take a chance when' he can afford it, in nominating Pip gras threw the burden on the broad shoulders of a young pitcher who had performed nobly during the regular season. Another. Day of Sunshine. Pittsburgh, Oct. 6.— UP)— Weather conditions today forecast an other day of bright sunshine for the second game of the Worlds Series be tween the Pittsburgh Pirates and the New York Yankees. There was a fog, but the *un could be seen trying to break through the mists. Women To Meet In Twin City. Winston-Salem, N. C., Oct. 5.

C., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1927 Jordan Declares He Does Not Remember Wedding In Charlotte During Summer r Minister on Stand in Own 1 Behalf Says He Must Have Been HI If Wed ding Took Place There. r STATE THROUGH WITH ITS CASE » _ [ Dr. Davidson, an Alienist, l Will Take Stand For De fense.—Admits He Mar ried Woman in Ohio. Charlotte, Oct. 6.—C4 3 ) —Asserting * that he had no recollection of ever ' having married Mrs. Emma Langridge 1 Jordan, formerly of Washington, but 1 that she had suggested matrimony to J him in a letter, the Rev. Willis T. Jordan testified in his own trial on * charge of bigamy in Superior Court * here today, related a story of his life, I during which he said he had had sev , eral lapses of memory. [ The minister, who ie alleged to have [ married Mrs. Landridge-Jordan in 1 Charlotte last August, while he bad s a living and undivorced wife, took 5 the witness stand as the first of two 1 defense witnesses expected to be in is troduced immediately after the state t- had closed its case. The state was > saved a wait 1 for witnnesses from Vir -3 ginia and West Virginia to prove that Jordan had married Mrs. Veasey V. 1 Ware-Snyder-Jordan in Akron, 0., in * 1926 when the defense admitted the s marriage after Judge Webb had s barred certified copies of Akron rec * ordß. ! The minister told how, soon after * he had called on Mrs. Landridgo after meeting her at the home of her daugh -1 ter in Washington, he had suffered from lapse of memory. When he re alized his surroundings, he said, he 1 was in Fort Smith, Ark. Asked what 1 he did when he recovered, he said: “I went at once to my wife (Mrs. ; V. V. Jordan) where my place was. “I do not remember this marriage ' which they, say I contracted with this woman,” Jordan testified of his Char ! lotte marriage. “I was suffering from amnesia at the time this marriage was said to have taken place. When I came to myself I was in Chester, S. C., and 1 this woman told me I had married her in Charlotte.” CJ , Jordan said he remonstrated with the woman, and tried to get her to leave him. “She refused to leave,” , he said, “clinging to me like a leech.” v He said he had called on Mrs. Langridge at the home of her daugh ter in Washington on July 19th, af ter receiving a letter from her invit ing him to call. She wrote, Jordan testified, that she had secured his name from a religious publication and . a matrimonial bureau. Soon after this call, Jordan testi . fied, that his memory failed and he recovered in Fort Smith. Going into his disappearance from Columbus, Ga., which at first was ; heralded as a kidnapping by masked men, Jordan said he left “principally i to get away from that woman, who * clung to my neck like a leech.” “Two masked men came to my house in Columbus,” he said. “They were friends of the minister I had replaced, and they told me if I valued my life I would leave at once.” He said Mrs. Langride-Jordan urged him to pay no attention to the men and to remain, but that he “left with dispatch” going to Grand Rap ids. Going into the question of the first letter he received from Mrs. Lan gridge in Washington, the minister said she described herself rather fully and broached the subject of matri mony. “I did not,” Mrs. Langridge-Jor dan exclaimed from her seat in the court room. Charlotte, Oct. 6.— (JP) —Admissions of a previous Carriage by attorneys for the Willis T. Jordan, and barring records from Akron, Ohio, of the same marriage marked rapid prog ress made in Superior Court here to day in the trial of Jordan on a charge of having contracted a bigamous mar riage with Mrs. Emma Langridge of Washington, D. C. Immediately after the admission of the marriage of the minister to Mrs. Veasey V. Ware-Snyder-Jordan, of Winding Gulf, W. Va., the state rest ed its case, although several witnesses expected here from ViVgina and West Virginia had not arrived. The defense immediately swore Dr. J. E. S. Davidson an alienist, and the defendant as witnesses. WILL TAKE APPEAL ON KALES VERDICT Government Offers to Accept Verdict Giving Mrs. Kales $2,027,30» So Can Appeal Case. Detroit, Mich., Oct. 4.— UP) —To provide the background for an appeal, government counsel today offered to accept a verdict giving Mrs. Alice Gray Kales, a former Ford Motor Company minority stockholder, $2,- 627,309, plus interest, which ehe seeks to recover as additional income tax levied on the sale of her stock in 1919, to Henry and Edsel Ford. Hal H. Smith, Mrs. Kale’s attorney, asked time to consider the offer, and recess was taken. The offer was made after Federal Judge Ben C. Dawkins, hearing Mrs. Kalee’ suit against the Internal Rev enue Bureau in United States Dis trict Court here, ruled against the government in a motion concerning striking out of all matters relating to estoppal in the plaintiff's declara tion.

RESCUES GREENSBORO MAN AT RISK OF LIFE Reynolds Mcßride Was Unconscious In Stoneville Hotel.—Frank King The Hero. Stoneville, Oct. 4.—Fire of unde termined origin burned Macks hotel at 3 o’clock this morning. There were several guests and regular boarders occupying the holstelry for the night and when the fire was discovered the building was enveloped in flames and the dining room and kitchen were falling in. Reynolds Mcßride, of Greensboro, was a guest of the hotel for the night and was rescued from - his room by Frank King in an unconscious condi tion at the risk of his life, making a second trip to Mcßride’s room on the second floor of the building. He was removed to a nearby residence and finally revived and is now suffering from the shock and the effect of the inhaled smoke. The hotel was of frame construction and built in 1896 by John W. Tew. A few months ago it was sold to Mack L. Roberts. The losses are estimated to be $5,000, with only $3,500 in insurance. The building has recently been re novated and completely refurnished by the present owner and no insurance was carried on the furnishings, which are a total loss. The town is now without any hotel and it is not known what plans the owner is making for the future. u t Only a few weeks ago the citizen ship of the town voted down the bond issue for a complete water system in the town, which would have given fire protection, and last night’s fire made obvious the needs for fire protection and water in the town. The fire was confined to the hotel building as a result of the wet condi tion of the surrounding buildings from the steady downpour of rain that had been blown by high winds and were ■ thoroughly drenched. Efforts are now being made to ob tain a Carnegie medal for Frank King for risking his life to save the strang er. It is conceded that Reynolds Mcßride owes his ilfe to the fearless ness and daring of Frank King, who brought his body out unaided from the room in which the embers then were falling and enveloped in flames.
