Tuskegee, Ala., May 10, 1907.—The Twenty-sixth Anniversary Exercises of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute are to be held at Tuskegee Institute, Alabama, beginning Sunday may 26th, at which time the Annual Sermon will be preached by Right Rev. W. A. Chandler, Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Bishop Chandler is one of the ripest scholars as he is one of the most eloquent speakers of the South.
The Annual Commencement and the Annual Industrial Exercises will be held on Thursday, May 10th, at 10 a.m., and 2 p.m., respectively. The Commencement Address will be delivered by Hon. Charles W. Anderson, United States Collector of Internal Revenue, New York City.
A cordial invitation has been extended Governor B. B. Comer by Principal Booker T. Washington, asking his presence at the Commencement Exercises on Thursday, May 30th, and he will probably find it possible to be present and deliver a short address.
Reduced rates of one and one third fare, plus 25 cents, have been granted for all the Commencement Exercises.
