Greenwood, March 8.-Robert
A. Cooper of Laurens announced
here tonight that he would be a
candidate for governor in the
Democratie primary this summer.
Mr. Cooper's announcement
was made after a conference with
friends from many sections of
the State, w6ho had come to
Greenwood for the purpose of
considering' his duty in the com

been here all the week, attend

meeting place for his friends.
In making the announcement,
iMr. Cooper stated that his plat
form would be given in due time.
Those close to Mr. Cooper say
that he makes the announcement
now so that his position will be
known. He has been urged, be

He at first declined all suggest

come so frequent and so insis

yield to the judgen4ent of his
friends in this mater. He has
never sought puboffice on any
thing other 's own merit
and does no intend to deviate
from this nciple now.

Mr. Stevenson. in his race for
congress, advocates a rural credit
system. In the South, three
fourths of the people are farm
ers. The great banking law put
through by this administration
made some provision but none
for the man who has to buy piis
land and needs long credit on it.
Six months is the longest credit
he can get under that law. There
should have been a land credit
system embraced in it whereby
a man could get a long credit
and low-rate of interest on real
estate and enable him to buy,
