Acknowledged to be a Big Man.
T&at Mr. McAdoo is a big man
everybody admits, but up to this
timej it has been impossible to deter
mine' the extent of his bigness. He
has ?filled satisfactorily every place
to vthich he has been assigned and
has ??ad a considerable degree of abil
ity ijn reserve. Probably some effec
tive jmeans of sounding his capacity
will be found before this titanic strug
gie ip over. To say the least of it,
Mr. ?jMcAdoo is undergoing good
trair lg for the responsibilities that

Keep Polititcs in Background.
Notwithstanding the fact that a
campaign has opened in which prac
tically^ every office will be filled in
South^Carolina from United States
Senator to magistrate, it is hoped
that pur people will devote them
selves more to "keeping the home
fires bqrning'^ than to keeping the l
political pot boiling. Fifty years from
now it will not matter very much who
was chosen to fill this or that office,
but it will matter fifty, or even a
thousand years, from now whether
the Allies or the Huns win this war.
We are pleased that while the
county-to-county campaign will be
conducted throughout the State as
usual, some of the counties are dis
continuing the community-to-commu
nity political meetings. This is well,
especially in a crisis like the present.
As far as possible, politics should be
kept in the background this year. Of
course, as intelligent citizens, inter
ested in good government we must
see that only worthy aspirants are
elected to office. But this can be
done quietly, and certainly without
causing our people to become
wrought up to a white heat.
The supreme moment has arrived
when we as loyal Americans, with
blood of our blood and bone of our
bone being secrificed upon the battle
field, we should rededicate and re
consecrate ourselves to the cause of
the Allies, which we reverently be
lieve is the cause of God.
Again we urge our people to keep
politics in the background. ff. I
Mr. McAdoo and Mr. Gerard
Will be invited.
William G. McAdoo, secretary of
the treasury, and James W. Gerard
former ambassador from the United
States to Germany, will be invited

Association at its regular annual

Acting Highway Engineer F. H '
Murray Writes a Letter j
(Greenwood Index.) j
The Dixie Highway will not go by ."
Pleasant Lane, it now appears. Act- '
jig State Highway Engineer F. H. ?
Murray favors the route by Reynolds (
bridge and has given his reasons in '
a letter addressed to supervisors G. ]
W. Lipscomb of Greenwood and E. N. ]
Broadwater of Edgefield. J
His letter follows: ]
Dear Sirs: ?
As per your request I met you at 1
Greenwood on June 7th, and in com- 1
)any with you went over the two pro- ?
oosed routes for the Dixie Highway
jetween Greenwood and Edgefield ?
'or the purpose vf deciding upon the ]
jest route to be constructed. i
On this logging trip each mile was i
jiven a rating based upon the loca- ?
;ion, the gra'des, the quality of the ?
;urfacing material, and the distance ]
he surfacing material would have to ]
)e hauled. The number of bridges to ]
>c constructed on each road was also ]
;aken into consideration. :
On the route from Greenwood to
Edgefield via Reynoldr bridge over
Turkey Creek the rating is 93 per <
:ent. The distance from the Cross t
Roads about two miles below Kirkscy ;
;o the point where the two proposed j
routes intersect about seven miles (
ibove Edgefield is at present 11.1 1
niles; however, this distance will be 1
shortened about one mile by reloca- ?
;ion when the road is constructed. :
There are four small bridges on the :
On the route from Greenwood to ;
Edgefield via Pleasant Lane Bridge ?
jver Turkey Creek the rating is 70 .:
per cent. The distance from the Cross !
Roads about two miles below Kirksey :
to the point where the two proposed i
routes intersect about seven miles ;
above Edgefield is at present 10.6 :
miles, but practically no reduction :
can be made in this distance by relo- I
eating the present road.-There are :
fourteen small bridges on this route. ;
To sum up the result of this inspec- I
tion and logging trip, I find that the !
route via Reynolds bridge is the most
practicable route to adopt. On this
route an excellent location can be se
cured with easy grades, which it will
be impossible to get on the route via
Pleasant Lane bridge. Also on the
route via Reynolds bridge an excel
lent quality of top-soil is available
for nearly the entire route, while on
the route via Pleasant Lane bridge
the quality of the material is only
fair. On the route via Reynolds
bridge there are only four or five
small bridges, while on the route
via Pleasant Lane bridge there are
fourteen small bridges which will
have to be constructed.
In conclusion I beg to advise that,
based on the above data and informa
tion I shall recommend to the State
Highway Commission at its next
meeting that the Federal Aid allotted
to Edgefield and Greenwood counties
be allowed upon the construction of
the road from Greenwood to Edge
field via Kirksey, Dr. J. C. Self's,
and Reynold's bridge over Turkey
Yours very truly,
F. H. Murray.

Music the Fourth War Neces
Our leaders in thought and the
United States government has placed
music fourth on the list as a war
necessity, First iood, second, clothing
third, shelter, fourth, music. Thous
ands of musical instruments have
been purchased by the United States
government, because they agreed
that music was necessary. The boys
must sing and have an accompani
ment in order to keep up the morale.
Mr. John A. Holland has brought
over some splendid pianos from his
piano house in Greenwood which are
in the empty store adjourning L. T.
May's store. In each home where
these pianos have been sold, sweet
music will keep up the morale of the
ones who stay at home.
Mr. Holland has offered on* of the
best of these instruments for the use
of the college girls in their concert
on Friday evening, so that when
good musicians and a good piano get
together, something good will be

We, the undersigned, recognizing
the fact that the "Dixie Highway"
has been secured through your Coun
ty, take this opportunity to congrat

fact that it will be of great interest
to our County to build and maintain
a good highway to intersect the "Dix
ie Highway", we beg you to locate
thc road to be known as the "Dixie
Highway" between Edgefield and
Greenwood as near Limestone as pos
sible so that we may intersect at or
near that point,, thus enabling us to
go either North or South on said
highway from the point of intersec
tion. For this consideration we will
ever pray. ,
