Very Patriotic People.
Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Norri? and
the editor of The Advertiser went
up to the Sullivan and Fruit Hill
schools Monday to present the War
Sayings Stamps to tlie good people
of that section. About ten o'clock
a representative body of white peo
ple gathered in the Sullivan school
house, the meeting being presided
over by Mr. J. P. Sullivan, who re
quested Mr. Jasper J. Mayson to
oller a prayer. The occasion was a
very inspiring one. As a result of
the rally pledges to the amount of
more than *1,300 were taken for
War Savings Stamps. The people
manifested such a loyal, patriotic
spirit. The committee from Edge
field enjoyed every moment spent
with them. The ladies also organ
ized a War Savings Society.
We accepted an invitation to
take dinner at the beautiful and
very hospitable home of Mr. and
Mrs. J. P. Sullivan near the school
house. We enjoyed a beautiful
feast, notwithstanding the fact
that Mrs. Sulivan made it conform
in every detail to Mr. Hoover's
regulations. The great variety serv
ed attested Mr. Sullivan's energy
and successful management, and the
beautiful manner in which it was
served reflected great credit upon
In the afternoon, accompanied bj
Mr. J. P. sullivan, Mr. S. W. Sul
livan, Mr. G. R. Mayson, Mr. Gus
Winn and several other patriotic
white citizens, the committee wtnt
to meet the colored people at Fruit
Hill school house. They were
promptly on hand and likewise
manifest a loyal and patriotic spirit.
After the War! Savings Stamps
were explained to them, following
a patriotic appeal, they responded
generously, pledges being received
for more than $2,300 worth of
stamps. We do not believe, consider
ing the ability of the white and col
ored people of that section bordering
on McCormick and Greenwood coun
?ties, that any other people in the
State have surpassed them. The day
was thoroughly enjoyed, both morn
ing and afternoon, by each member
of the committee from Edgefield.
Neither of them will have to be urg
ed to visit this community. The peo
ple have proven what splendid people
they are. They are loyal, patriotic
New Red Cross Auxiliaries.

Shannonhouse, chairman of the Edge

the extension committee to organ
ize an auxiliary at Roper's Cross
Roads. After short talks by Mr. Shan
nonhouse and the ladies, the auxil
iary officers were elected. Mrs. W. L.
Timmerman was made chairman;
Miss Sallie May Miller, secretary;
Miss Emmie Lanham, treasurer.
A very pleasant discussion of the
different departments of work now
being done by the chapter resulted
in a request for a number of gar
ments to be given at once to the aux
On Friday afternoon Mr. J. R.
Timmerman again placed his car at
the service of the extension commit
tee, thus helping in the organization
of an auxiliary at Cleora.
A number of ladies assembled at
the schoolhouse, Cfficers were elected
and a request made for immediate
work. The Cleora officers are: Mrs.
W. T. Reel, chairman; Miss Janie
Reel, secretary; Miss Alma Williams,
The Edgefield chapter is happy to
welcome these two auxiliaries whose
enthusiastic interest at their initial
meeting gives promise of earnest,
faithful service to the Red Cross.
