South Carolina Press Associa
The 44th annual session of the
South Carolina Press Association
will be held in Gaffney Wednesday.
Thursday and Friday, September 18,
19 and 20. Owing to war conditions,
at appeared that it would probably
be unwise to attempt to hold the
meeting at Gaffney as originally plan
ned. In order to ascertain whether
or not a sufficient number would at
tend to warrant completing arrange
ments for the meeting, J. L. Mims,
the president of the association, sent
out a number of inquiries to the ed
itors' and publishers over the State.
A sufficient number of affirmative
replies to assure the success of the
meeting were received.
An interesting programme is be
ing arranged and elaborate plans
are being made by E. H. De Camp
and the people of Gaffney for the
entertainment of the members of the
Fourth Estate. The association met in
Gaffney 10 years ago and those who
attended then remember, as if it
were yesterday, the big things that
were done by Ed. DeCamp for their
entertainment. These who were ir.

At first it was arranged to hold the
meeting only two days but in a let

DeCamp he urges that a third day
be added for pleasure. On Friday,

Carolina, stopping at Chimney Rock
All of the members of the asso
ciation .-ire urged to attend the meet
ing at Gaffney. After the close of
the campaign those who have been
continuously at their desks through
the summer need a short period of
relaxation, and there is no better
time cr place for this relaxation than
the meeting of the Press association.
Marriage of Miss Gary and Dr.
The following account of the wed
ding in Abbeville of Miss Eliza Tus
ten Gary, daughter of Judge Gary,
to Dr. W. T. Briggs of North Augus
ta, will be of interest all over the
State, where the two young people
are well known and popular:
"The home of Chief Justice Eu
gene B. Gary was the scene of an in
teresting marriage ceremony Satur
day neon, when Miss Eliza Tusten
Gary, daughter of the chief justice,
became the bride of Dr. William
Traylor Briggs of North Augusta.
"Dr. Geo. W. Swope officiated at
the service, which was marked with
impressive simplicity. The bride was
attractively attired in a brown travel
ing suit. Only the family and imme
diate relatives were present. Private
Eugene Gary, Jr., succeeded in reach
ing the city, after an eleventh hour
trip from Columbia.
"Following the ceremony, the
young couple left immediately on a
bridal tour. They will make their
home in North Augusta where Dr.
Briggs is a practiefcg physician."
To ths Baptists of the Edge
The Baptists of South Carolina
are planning: for a great drive for
education this fall. During Septem
ber, October and November of this
year they propose to cover the state
with a hand to hand icanvass for
three hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars to cover the indebtedness of
their institutions and to add to their
endowment. The Baptist denomina
tion which aggregates about one
hundred and sixty thousand mem
bers in this state is operating five
colleges and five academies. These
properties together with their en
dowments are worth one million,
eight hundred and sixty two thous
and, seven hundred and seventy dol
lars! This is no small investment for
one denomination to make in educa
tion in this state! It will be seen,
therefore that the total indebtedness
of two hundred and ten thousand is
only a little over ten per cent, of the
value of their school and college
property. These debts were incurred
for buildings and improvements
made necessary by their growing pa
tronage. They do not represent fail
ure of these institutions to meet cur
Our people need to appreciate the
great work the Christian denomina
tions are doing in the field of educa
tion in this state. There are fourteen
colleges supported by the various de
nominations in this state-five by the
Baptists, three by the Methodists,
two by the, Presbyterians, two by the
A. R. P.'s, and two by the Lutherans,
and these colleges are giving college
training to more than half the col
lege men and women of the State!
j The Baptists alone are providing
. college facilities for nearly one-fifth
?of all of our college students. This
?is no small service these denomina
tions are rendering to the State of
South Carolina! Our people need to
understand and appreciate this great
work of the church!
Efforts like that being put forth
by the Baptists this year are both
Christian and patriotic services and
deserve the greatest success. Our
whole population needs to be stirred
on the subject of education! South
Carolina now has the unenviable dis
tinstion of standing at the bottom of
the list of all the states in the Union
in the matter of literacy! South Car
olina has \ to her shame twenty-five
per cent, of illiteracy, according to
the last Census report, the largest
per cent, of illiteracy of any state
in the Union! This, means twenty
five per cent, of our citizens can nei
ther read nor write! This condition
constitutes our greatest problem and
our gravest peril! Surely every pa
triotic and Christian citizen in this
state ought to give encouragement
to every educational endeavor put
forth in this state! In this particu
lar movement every Baptist is under
obligation to do his best to make this
effort a great success!
To make the task as easy as pos
sible, and in order not to be in con
flict with the Government in its sale
of Liberty.. Bonds and War Stamps,
they are going to accept Liberty
Bonds and War Stamps for cash,
and will make all notes payable in
Liberty Bonds and War Stamps.
These bonds will not be put on mar
ket during the war! By this method
a man can serve a double purpose
with his money. If he puts a hundred
dollars in Liberty Bonds, it will be
worth a hundred dollars to his gov
ernment and if he gives this bond to
the schools it will be worth a hun
dred dollars to them! Hence, the one
hundred dollars will do two hundred
dollars worth of work!
I This great campaign is under the
direction of the Baptist Educational
Board, of Columbia, S. C., of which
Dr. Chas. A. Jones is secretary and
treasurer. This effort deserves the
greatest success. Now is the time for
all good Baptists to come to the
aid of their institutions of learning!
Let us gladly undertake great things
for God, and if we do, we are promis
ed great things from Him.

Utterances That Will Live.
No president ever uttered more
remarkable words of wisdom and sin
cere appreciation of the ties that
bind human beings together than
President Wilson. George Washing
ton and Abraham Lincoln were in
spired by the tremendous import of
the causes that led to the wars in
which they took so great a part but
Washington's cause was National
and Lincoln's was partly sectional?
President Wilson has been placed
by a divine Providence in the midst
of an international conflict whose
causes and results have shaken the
world and will in its finality write
chapters in history more significant
than any ever written. President Wil
son's expressions on the war have
been read all over the world and have
profoundly impressed other millions
than Americans. An English newspa
per speaks of Wilson's war utter
ances as follows:
The only war-time oratory which
has the suggestion of a posterity
about it is that of .President Wilson.
Such a phrase as "The world must be
made safe for democracy" is already
merged so completely into our na
tional sentiment, has become the
common idea of so many millions of
allied people, that we have ceased to
attribute individual authorship to it,
just because it now belongs to every
body. It is, of course, President Wil
son's phrase, uttered in his address
to Congress in April, 1917. And here
are a few more of the President's
epigrams that are likely to live:
"This is no war for amateurs."
"What f am opposed to is noit the
feeling of pacifists, but their stu
"I believe in the ordinary man."
"There is something very fine in
the spirit of the volunteer, but deep
er than the volunteer spirit is the
spirit of obligation."
And then of course, there is the
notable utterance beginning "Force,
force to the utmost, force without
stint or limit"-perhaps the most
majestic and thunderous words ever
uttered by a statesman in the midst
of a great war.-Greenwood Journal.
Ships Are Needed to Trans
port Men-Use of Substi
There is no chance for the house
wife to relax in regard to the con
servation of food. Just as the wheat
substitute begins to look brighter
though the 50-50 rule is still in
effect-she has now to turn her at
tention to a more intensive sugar
saving program. The food adminis
trator says: 0
"The burden of maintainingyihe
allies falls on us. There is not enough
sugar available for all of us to live
in accordance with our peace time
habits. You must share with our
allies at a common table. Our great
war program has reduced our sugar
carrying fleet; the sugar require
ments of our overseas army are very
large; our domestic crop is less than
we expect; Germans have destroyed
sugar beet fields and factories in Nor
thern France and Italy; more than
00,000 pounds of sugar was sent to
the bottom of tho seas off our own
"If by our selfish use of sugar we
should force the allies to send to Ja
va for 250,000 tons of sugar to piece
out their meagre ration for next year
it would require ll extra ships. These
ll ships would transport and keep
150,000 to 200,000 soldiers in
France. Since about 70 per cent of
the country's sugai passes through
the hands of America's housewives,
it is evident that she has a most im
portant role to play in its conserva
tion. First, it is her part to see that
no more than two pounds per person
per month comes in th? family lar
der. Second, she must make this
amount go around. It must cover the
table use as well as for cooking.
Just as in the use of flour substi:
tutes, she will find other means of
sweetening. She will also learn how
to substitute other fuel giving foods
for the sugar she has relied upon in
the days of plenty. She will shift
from sugar to starchy food. It will
be her voluntary contribution to ul
timate victory.-The State.
