Edgefeld School Letter.
The McDuftie literary society
was called to order by the president
Friday afternoon April 14. After
the reading of the minutes and roll
call, the regular program followed:
The first number was current events,
M ?Hedge Holson. He had a well de
veloped paper consisting of an oui
line of the war and other i m per tant
topics and as this was the first time
Milledge had ever appeared before
the society he received hearty ap
plause. Ouida Pattison read a very
interesting selection entitled, "Two
gray wolves." The next was an es
say by Neta Ouzts and the debate
followed: Resolved, "That manual
training should be substituted for
athletic training." Affirmative, Jan
ice Morgan, Frances Jones; Nega
tive, Ilene Marling, Emmie Lou
Edmunds. This was a very inter
esting subject and all the papers
were thoroughly enjoyable. Pen
dleton Gaines, Permelia Hudgens
and Douglas Tim merman were ap
pointed to act as judges and
their decision was given in
favor of the affirmative. The
following subject for debate at the
next meeting was adopted: Resolved,
"That Woodrow Wilson is pursu
ing the wrong policy toward Ger
many." After the report of the
critic the meeting adjourned.
The declamation contest lo select
a boy to go to Columbia as a rep
resentative from the Edgefield high
school took place Friday ni^ht
April 14. The ptogram rendered
was as follows: Music, Misses Ruth
Lyon and Margaret May. Reading
by Miss Willie Peak entitled
"Nebuchadnezzar." Mr. Pendleton
Gaines, "Happiness and liberty" by
Bobert G. Ingersol; Mr. Douglas
Timmerraan, "Abraham Lincoln"
by Henry Watterson; Mr. Fred
Mays, "Social life in the old south"
by Thomas Nelson Page; Mr. Car
roll Rainsford, "America's duty to
resist" by Patrick Henry; Mr. Ed
win Folk, "Devotion tu duly" by
D. N. Shelley; Mr. Glover Tomp
kins, "The new south" by Henry
W. Grady. Each boy delivered his
speech splendidly and it was indetd
an inspiring sight to see these boys
put forth such fine efforts to win.
Messrs. W. C. Lynch, E. E. Pad
gett and J. H: Can tel ou acted as
judges, and after a somewhat
lengthy discussion, they decided
upon Mr. Edwin Folk a. represen
tative and Mr. Carroll Rainsford as
subbtitute. During the absence of
the judges, Miss Hioit gave a
splendid selection entitled "Stutter
ing Sam's letter." This ended the
program which I am sure every oue
enjoyed to the utmost.
Rev. Mr. Bailey made another
one of his interesting talks to the
students Thursday morning. We
all enjoyed his talk immensely and
hope he will pay us another visit

Field Day Athletics by Schools
of the Countv Saturday
(Reported by Prof. Copenhaver.)
The athletic events which were
not held Field dav on account of
rain took plaee Saturday, and re
sulted in a victoiy for Trenton by
the comparatively narrow margin
of thirteen points. The cash prizes,
contributed by Mr. Lulton for the
boy and girl respectively winning
the most points were won by Mis-:
Edith Herlong of Trenton, with lr,
points and Diomede Hollingsworth
of Edgcfield with 21 points.
Through a mistake in counting the
points it was announced on the
irrounds that Spearman of Trenton,
tied Hollingsworth for individual
points. On ihe final count, however,
Spearman was found to have but
twenty points, making Hollings
worth the winner by one point.
Harmony school came third, win
tong thirteen points, while John
ston was fourth with eight. The
contest was really between Trenton
and Edge-field, and the relations of
the two schools through all the
contests were most pleasant. Tren
ton is to be complimented on the
courtesy and fairness of both teach
ers and students. The eveuts and
winners of first place follows: Run
ning broad jump for boys over 14,
Spearman, Trenton; same event for
boys under 14, Bryan, Trenton;
standing broad jump for boys over
14, Spearman, Trenton; same event
for beys under 14, Herlonjr, Tren
ton; running high jump for boys
over 14, Hollingsworth, Edgetield;
same event for boys under 14, Her
Girls' running high jump, Lois
Minis, Edgetield; girls' rope climb,
Alice Prescott, Edgetield; girls'
?fifty yard dash, Edith Herlong,
Trenton; girls' running broad jump1
Sue Mae Herlong, Trenton; girls'
standing broad jump, Lois Miras,
Edgetield; girls' ?ag race, Edgetield
Boys' rjpe climb, Spearman,
Trenton; 50 yard dash for boys
over 14, Hollingsworth, Edgefieid;
for boys under 14. Bryan, Trenton;
IUD yard dash for boys over 14,
Pr ivette, Trenton; for boys under
14, Bryan, Trenton; '220 yard run,
Hollingsworth, Edgefieid. The 440
vard run was rather a freak affair,
Salter of Trenton sacrificing first
place after he had virtually won it,
to Spearman that the latter might
add to his points.
Edgefieid sends Hollingsworth to
Columbia to the state high school
track to meet the twenty-seventh of
April; Privette and Salter go from
Trenton. Needless to say, we are
expecting Hollingsworth as well as
Folk, who goes to represent us in
the oratorical contest, to bring home
