"GOOD TIMES" OR HARVEST
There has been an idea running
around in our mind for some time
which we want to call to the atten
tion of the town authorities. This is
to set aside a day each fall which
may be called Harvest Day, or any
other suitable name-this year it
might well be called "Twenty Cent
Day" or "Good Times Day."
Our idea is this: To invite ev
erybody in the county to come to
Winnsboro and get acquainted -.l
over again. The crops* will soon be
gathered and to a large extent sold.
The farmer will have more tinie on
his hands. To offset all the difi
culties with which he has had o
contend this year he has had to be
on the job every minute from da
Lght till dark, doing more hard
work than heretofore, economi'yin
in labor expense, cultivating more
intensively to overcome the using of
less fertilizer-working, plannin-.
yes, scheming, more so than ever
before. And if it were not for the!
increase in price, with the certainty
of a short crop, he would be finan
cially ruined. To a certain extent
every man who has been in businles3
this year has had unprecedented dif
ficulties to overcome and problems
to solve. We are all-everyone of us
-entitled to a day of relaxation de
voted to social purposes and - urre
pleasure, trying, if possible, to for
get the worries. of yesterday. By so
doing we shall all go back to the
job in a fresher state of mind.
Let's everybody take a day off.
Let's have a big picnic dinner or
barbecue. And the expense of the
day's pleasure must not be taken too
seriousiy into consideration. Along
with the dinner and barbecue we
r .st have a band. "Harvest Da
will become a yearly celebration to
which all the' people, may look for
ward. We have in the county mem
bers of the national corn and nig
clubs, and members of these county
clubs have this year won State
prizes. We a've it to these boys and
girls to have some public acknowl
edgement of our appreciation of th r
It must be borne in mind that the
idea is that this celebration is not
intended for any class or faction. It'
is for every nian, woman and child,
business house and organization.
The town of Winnsboro must be~
dressed for a holiday, and what a
gathering there will be when the
people of this place, the Winmnsbora
Mills, and every section, each com-~
mnunity and every farm, no matter
how small, shall get together for a
day off. The schools of the county
may come in a boy, and their parents
will welcome them here when they
Of 'course there will be speeehes,

lhope, of optimism and good cheer, of
piosperity and happiness.
Of course the suggestions tbove
enly touch the generalities of the
entertainment, and the details would
have to be developed by committees
-if the idea is adopted.
This is the community spirit in
which we believe and which we

from that section. The view was
expressed by high treasury officials
that the purchasing power of the
South should be sustained through
the winter as a result of the im

Better business in the South, it
w's asserted could be expected to
have its effect upon the courttry gen

sections. In coal and steel, howeaver,
