proposal with him, it was announced
here. Me. Riegel told the Laurens
delegation he would take the matter

Johnson Shoals, it was pointed out,

a cotton mill, with the sufficient fall
to furnish hydro-electric power.
President Riegel is. spending several
days at Ware Shoals, having come
down from New York for the annual

The Erothesian, the monthly publica

diction of general interest and at the
same time to furnish a means of ex
pression for the students who have
literary or journalistic tendencies, has
been started at Lander and is receiv-I
lg the active support of the faculty.
The Lander College Press Club has
been organized under the direction of
Miss Ruth Milbrandt of the English
faculty, and Dr. John 0. Wison, pres
ident of the college, and Mrs. Willson,
are sponsoring the movement to make
the monthly magazine of Lander Col
lege one of the best college publica
tions in the South.
*A definite policy has been adopted
by the Landsr Press Club to require
each member to submit one manu..

sketch, essay, criticism or anecdote.
In addition, the members of each class
in turn are required to submit manu

The aim of the Lander magazine is
a production that will be entertain
ig, and of sufficient merit to appeal
to persons of literary taste. The Ero

of the usual college magazine and to
publish a periodical that will stand out
for its own merits.

ON SUBJECT OF GOOD
ING HERE LAST SATURDAY
The prospects of carrying the elec
tion for a $500,000 bond issue for
good- roads in Fairfield county in the
election Tuesday was tremenduosly
strengthened at a mass meeting here
Governor Wilson G. Harvey and
Mr. Brodnax, of Columbia, and CoL
L. T. Kirkpatrick, chairman of the
North Carolina Highway Commission,
- d Mr. C.. 0. Kuester, secretary of
the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce,
addressed the meeting. This is the
first time that the people of Winns
boro have had an opportunity of hear
ing Governor Harvey and they were
most favorably impressed with his
sincerity, simplicity of mannar, and
clear forceful presentation of facts in
connection with the building of roads
and their benefits. Contrary to the
usual tactics of politicians and office
seekers, Governor Harvey did not ex
press sympathy for the tax burden
which the people have to carry, but
stated that the fact that South Caro
lina has the lowest tax rate in the U
nited States is not a matter for South
Carolinians to point to wgh pride; for
just as they have the lowest tax rate,
so also have they made the least head
way in matters of material. progress.
Col. Kirkpatrick was the principal
address with. some pleasing anecdotes,
and a tribute to South 'Carolina's
governor; "When, ypi Qogh(aro

clation inmediately after and how
later the South has made such ama
ing strides forward as a manufact
uring center, as compared with the
country at large. He recited figures
to prove his statements, and with a
burst of oratory led his hearers into
a dream of the South recovering her
one-time power. He discussed this
from the standpoint of material pro
gress and education, mentioning the
fact in the educational line North
Carolina had moved from a relative
standing among the states from forty
seventh place to seventh; that on
Monday morning one person out of
every five in North Carolina would
be in school. "North and South Ca
rolina present advantages to manu
facturers which no other States in
the South possess, and standing shoul
der to shoulder they can wrest from
New England the textile industries
which rightfully, are ours," he said,
and one of the best inducements to
offer them is good roads, along with
schools and churches." We must have
these things, and the office-seeker
who will not assure us of these must
be put aside.' He said that we must
build roads not only to induce others
to 'come here but also to protect our
present interests. "The City of Char
lotte is spending one million dollars
on roads leading into South Carolina,
to take trade out of South Carolina
into Charlotte." He then left the
field of generalities and applied him
self to how good roads will affect
Fairfield county. Col. Kirkpatrick
seemed more familiar with some con
ditions in the county than the average
citizen and showed just how much ad
ditional tax would have to be paid.
"There should be no more room in a
community for any man who is op
posed to paying the extra tax for good
Mr. Kuester made a short address.
His remarks were very pointed, strong

good roads and their bearing on com
Mr. Broadnax addressed the meet
ing for a few minutes, stating that
the only man who could rightfully ob
ject to the issue is a dealer in auto
mobile springs and the man who
makes repairs on cars. With figures
taken from the county's tax books he
showed that this would be a good in
vestment. He showed thht with a
very small per capita payment the
roads could be built, and out of the
'savings effected a bonus on the ex
pense could be paid .back to the cit
A barbecue dinner was served aft
