Bankers' association during the closing fiscal year. Charles K. Martin, vice president of the Citizens' P.ank of Fort Valley and president of the bankers' association, in his annual address today, declared it is now incumbent upon every interest and organization in the state to support the organization unstintedly. "Though sponsored by the Georgia Rankers' association," said Mr. Martin. "Greater Georgia is now presented to our state, much larger in its scope and potential possibilities than any other organization for the economical development of the resources and advantages of Georgia." Support of the organization by every interest in the state will bring Georgia to a place where it shall truly merit in every sense the name of the Empire State of the South, he declared. Financial conditions, rationally and state-wide, were discussed by Mr." Martin, and he urged bankers to uphold the IMh amendment, pointing to the large increase in savings accounts, which he attributed as a direct result of prohibition.- lr500 Colored Pupils Will Sing in Opera On Auditorium Stage are btrtsted fee'inr.

IN HARMONIOUS MEET IN NASHVILLE Osborne Wood Plans To Work In California Nashville. Tenn., May IS. OP) Tennessee republicans today in a harmonious three-hour convention, adopted a platform, endorsed the record of ,T. Will Taylor, heard several spellbinders and adjourned with no recommendations as to candidates for any of the state offices coming before the voters in November. Save for the resolution 'endorsing the second district consrressman and sarcastic refer ences by one or two of the speakers to the anti-Taylor leaders, the bitterness of the past few months' factional fight failed to show in the deliberations. Former Governor Alf Taylor in the role of temporary chairman, sounded the keynote of harmony, and Hal H. Clements, chairman of the state executive committee, who called the convention to order, likewise counselled pulling together in the hope of a state victory at the election. (By Leased Wire to The ronstiUitia and The Cliicaeo Tribune.) New York. Ma: IS. Osborne C. Wood, son of Major mr."ul Leonard Wood, governor-general of the Philippine Islands, returned from Havana today on the Siboney. With him were Frank Steinharf. president of the Havana Electric Railway, Light & Power Co.; Mrs. Steinhart. ajid their daughter-in-law, Mrs. L. Steinhart. Wood, who three years ago won a fortune in Wall street, then lost his winnings in Europe and was reported to have recouped in the real estate business in Florida, said he hadn't been in Florida since January. He had been spending his time roaming around Cuba, looking up friends of his boyhood days. He said he would spend two of three days in New York at the Hotel Biltmore and then go to California. He said he intended to connect up with some "well-established firm." but in what line of business he hadn't decided. Asked if he intended to enter Wall street again, he sand : "To play Wall street one must have money. To get money one must first work. Maybe I'll go back there and maybe I won't. "One never can tell," was his verdict as to whether he would try the motion-picture business. Steinhart said he had offered Wood a position in his business. BY THOMAS L. STOKES. Washington, May 18. President Coolidge and several senators were mentioned as being interested in spiritualism and the science of reading the future during a hearing before a house committee on a bill to 'regulate fortune-tellers and mediums in Washington. ' An investigator for Harry Houdini. the magician, told the committee of experiences with local mediums and clairvoyants one of whom described table-tipping seances at the white house and visits from senators desiring to know about the future. Houdini, who is advocating the bill for regulation, nearly engaged in a fist-fight with an excited onlooked who objected to the magician's demonstration of how spiritualists convey messages from the dead through tin Lorns. The two were separated by spectators and Houdini threatened to call the police. This happened after the committee had adjourned, when Houdini and the mystics began a private session of their own. While no authorized statement was made at the white house regarding the alleged -seances,", it was said informally that neither the president nor Mrs. Coolidge is interested in spiritualism. A quiet-mannered, soft-voiced vonn woman, Rose Mackenberg, testified under oath about visits she had made Monday to ten local practioners as an investigator for Houdini, consulting among others Madam Marcia, whom Mrs. Harding visited, and Mrs. Jane B. Coates. . I know for a fact that table-talking seances are held at the white house in the presence of President Coolidge and his family," Miss Mackenberg quoted Mrs. Coates as saying. The investigator said that Mrs. Coates had told her that several senators are believers in spiritualism and frequently came to see them. The two women, with permission of the committee, stood at the side of Miss Mackenberg as she testified about her consultation with them and entered vig- -orous denials frequently. Others in the audience interjected, heatedly, during the session, with such outbursts as "lie," and with the same energy applauded questions from members of the committee indicating doubt, about the wisdom of legislation. ' After the session. Mrs. Coates denied emphatically that she had said seances were held at the white house, enlainins that she had told Miss Mackenberg they were held "in the shadow of the white house."
