Friday. Please take notice that the
[Aiken game has been changed from
[Tuesday to Friday.
The whole school waa shocked
to hear on Sunday of the death of
the father of one of the best stu
dents in the school. John M. Crox
ton's father passed away last week
after a very brief illness. The son
left Sunday for bis home in Ker
shaw where he goes to a widowed
mother and several small brothers.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to
our bereaved adjutant. Cadet Cap

month acid they promise to give the
visitors an enjoyable time.
The Cadet minstrel was a pro
found success. All of the three acts
were greatly enjoyed and I am sure
everybody was satisfied. Congratu
lations to Capt. Taylor! The whole
school responded to the earnest in
vitation and were present. Quite a
few town folks were present but we
are sorry more did not come. Not
all of the seats were taken. Captain
Taylor announced that the proceeds
went to the athletic association. We
tender our thanks to the college or

with music between aots.

Mr. D. A. Tompkins of Char
lotte, a son of Edf-e?eld who has
reflected lasting credit upon the old
mother county, has from the day
the announcement was made that
the S. C. C. I. would leave Edge
field manifested the deepest con
cern in the town's interests educa
tionally. Mr. Tompkins very ear
nestly desires that the people of j
Edgefield establish the best school
that it is possible for them to have.
It has been his deep and abiding in
terest thal caused Mr. Tompkins to j
enclose the following pertinent and
timely article in a letter which he
wrote his brother. Mr. Arthur S.
Tompk'ns, a few days ago:
It has been proposed that tnt*

departure of the co-educational in
stitute from Edgefield.
A suggestion has been made that
the new,system be made thorough
ly modern, and that it include, not
only scholastic and literary in
structions, but vocational and in
dustrial and agricultural tl ai oin g as
well. It has'been said that ail this
can be done with the same money
to run it as it would take for a
scholastic school only.
The 20th century idea of educa
tion includes both teaching the mind
and training the body. It includes
some measure of apprenticeship in
the practical operations that sur
round the school. Here in Edge
field, pains will be taken to teach
in and out of the school, agricul
ture, the manufacture of cotton oil,
the manufacture of cotton cloth.
Also domestic science. In this way
the boys and girls of the communi
ty accustomed themselves to the ac
tivities of the community. This is
3xactly as it was during the planta
tion days. A boy or girl went to
school to have scholastic and litera
ry accomplishments. On the plan
tation they were in a natural en
vironment of oractical instruction
and training in the activities of
plantation life. They learned every
ph?se of planting and making cot
ton. They learned the peculiari
ties of the accomplishments of
mules, of dogs and guns. They
knew how to raise corn, and going
further they knew how to raise
hogs and meat. They knew the
economies of all the things on the
plantation, and the consequence was
by the time a boy waR 10 or 18
years old, he was not only pretty
well educated, but he could run a ;
whole plantation. When he chose i
to go to college and cam?*, back at ?
21 or 22, he was an accomplished ?
practical and educated planter. He*
was at the same time, whenever he ;
chose to enf.er politics, a statesman
and not a polit ician. In having a
practical training on the planta
tion, his college education did not
become a handicap. This was the
19th century education par excel
lence, and surpassed any other kind
in the United States. The young
man who had graduated from the
plantation and then from college
could not well be embarrassed with
anything. It was easy for him to
get into his life work and ea*y for
him to handle it after he got. in it,
buoause he had been preparing for
it since childhood.
There is a '20th century education
which is similar, bnt many southern
localities have never gotten into it.
As an educated southern school boy
used to know all about plowing, so
in this 20th century he ought still
to know about plowing. Bnt he
ought also to know about cotton
seed oil and cotton yarns and
cotton cloths and manufacture of
machinery, and the girls ought to

know all about the domestic house
hold. Then hunting cheap jobs
would disappear, and a boy would
enter into important activities, as
he entered into plantation' life be
fore the war. Then also if the cook
did not turn ap in the morning, the
daughter ot' the house could get a
breakfast that would shanie the
cook, as the planter's son used to
show a darkey how to harness a
mule, or do any other practical
thing on the plantation.
The modern soutLern education
wants to qualify the modern south
ern boy and girl for the activities
of life, the same as the planter's
son and daughter were well qualified
for the plantation lifo. When this
is done, the same success will be
attained for the people as was at
tained in the 19tb century by the
planter's non and daughter. Com
petence makes life seem easy and
pleasant. It was not so much the
conditions that surrounded the
plantations that now makes as look
back on it sometimes with regret,
but it was the competence that
lived in that time to do the duties
ofthat time. What did it mat
ter to the competent planter's son
whether there was a negro availa
ble to drive a ti-mulc team. The
planter's son could drive the 6
mnle team himself when occasion
required, but in many cases to-day
the boy "annot make a gallon of
cotton oil, or a yard of common
white cloth. The modern educa
tion must be a iOtb century educa
tion if it is as effective as the 19th
century education was effective.
