Informal Supper for Secretary
Plans for the work of the State
secretary of the Y. M. C. A. and the
executive committee of ?he associa
tion were laid out at a meeting of
the committee and representative cit
izens last night at the Jefferson Ho
tel. The meeting was in the nature of
an informal supper in honor of the
recently elected State secretary, T.
B. Lanham of Columbus, Ohio, now
of South Carolina and a native of this
State. Mr. Lanham made a brief ad
dress telling of his past work and
what he hoped to do here. He impress
/ed his hearers with his frankness and
sincerity of speech and modest state
ments of what the State committee
must do. .
The committee plans to secure a
county organizer to have charge of
the rural work throughout the State.
This is being done in many States
and has proved very satisfactory. A
State secretary for boys' work will
probably be secured. His duties will
carry him to the larger high schools
of the State in an attempt to organize
the boys for constructive work. While
no definite action looking to the es
tablishing of these two' branches of
the association in this State has yet
been taken it is probable that the of
fices will be created at an early date.
An additional feature of the State as
sociation's plans is the creation of a
secretaryship for negro work. It is
planned to help the negro in his ef
fort for betterment.
A committee of five citizens will
quietly canvas the city today and
raise over $1,000 to carry on the
work of State association. No city
wide campaign will be waged as it is
believed the money can be raised by
private subscription of a number of
leading men in Columba. The com
mittee and State association have ex
pressed great confidence in Mr. Lan
ham, the new secretary, and believe
under his leadership much will be ac
complished within the next year. Mr.
Lanham's talk "?tst night convinced
them that they have the right man in
the right place. His address was re
sponded to by W. V. Martin, indus
trial secretary of the Southeastern
division; Rev. E. M. Lightfoot, pas
tor of the Second Baptist Church, Co
lumbia, and E. H. Wilson of the
Southeastern department. Other talks
were made.-The State.
Blows at South in Tariff Plan.
Washington, June 20.-General
hearings always looking toward a
general revision of the tariff will be
started by the house ways and means
committee soon after July 4, Chair
man Fordn ey of the committe an
nounced today, at the close of hear
ings on the request of the potash and
dye industries for protection.
Statistics and data, Mr. Fordney
said, are being assembled and the
committee proposes to go .extensively
and exhaustively into the whole sub
ject with a view of drafting a bill re
vising the tariff in accordance with
the campaign promises of the Repub
lican majority in Congress.
A ways and means sub-committee,
of which Representative Green, Re
publican, of Iowa is chairman, will
have hearings Monday on the button
In urging protection for the dye
industry today, Dr. Charles H. Herty,
former president of the American
Chemical Society, said German dyes,
disguised as Swiss products, were
seeking entrance to this country.
"I am satisfied," said Dr. Herty,
"that I can prove that $1,400,000 of
, the $1,631,364 licenses issued for im
ports from Switzerland in April rep
resents dyes coming from Germany
and by proving them of enemy origin
I can block them from coming into
this country unless they already have
been brought in."
Southern truck growers and fer
tilizer manufacturers appeared in op
position to the proposed duty on po
tash and their plea was supported by
Representatives Huchinson, Republi
can, of New Jersey and Byrnes, Dem
rocat of South Carolina.
J j<y Geratjr Gires Advice.
" J. W. Geraty, a truck plantar of
? South Carolina, declared that if the
i proposed duty was made effective the
1 cost of potash would be? prohibitive to
"farmers. He told the committee that
to produce nearly normal crops the
first year the German supply was cut
off because of the accumulated a
jnount in the land, but said that for
the second year the yields fell off 30
per cent and that this year crops on
land for which potash was necessary
would be only 25 to 30 per cent of
normal. The American product, he
said, is inferior to foreign potash.
Similar conditions existed in the
potato growing districts of Maine,
New Jersey and New York, Mr. Gera
ty said, and added that Georgia
peaches and Louisiana strawberries
furnished northern markets -this year
were below normal in quality because
of lack of or inferiority of potash.
Thomas C. Atkeson, representing
the farmers' grange, declared ais or
ganization was opposed to all price
fixing, "and there is a suspicion that
the maximum price on potash fixed
in this bill whT become the minimum
Will Hurt Farmer?.
Southern fertilizer manufacturers,
through Walter Motts of Charleston,
S. C., declared the bill would serious
ly hamper their business because
farmers 'would be unable to buy po
tash should the duty proposed on for
eign products become law. He
thought $100 was the maximum price
farmers could afford to pay for a ton
of potash and use it profitably.
Dr. J. N. Harper of Atlanta, direc
tor of the farm service of the South
ern Fertilizer Association, told the
committee of the necessity of potash
in producing crops and especially in
"Were it not for potash the shirts
which you gentlemen have on would
be of inferior quality," he said.
"Cauld the ordinary cotton farmer
use potash at $250 a ton?" asked Rep
resentative Kitchin, Democrat of
"No,' replied the witness who add
ed that he thought that with such a
price the ordinary farmer would not
use it at all.

Henry Ford's Latest
This Henry Ford person is a queer
fist. A few days ago he wrote Sec
retary Carter Glass that he wanted
an expert from the Treasury Depart
ment to come to Detroit and examine
the books of the company so as to as
certain the profit which the company
made on war contracts with the gov
ernment. When this has been done Mr
Ford says he will return every dollar
of it to the Government.
Whether his minority stockholders
will file an injunction against the ul
tra-patriotic impulse of President
Ford remains to be seen.
There is nothing new under the
sun, but Henry Ford's counterpart
has not yet been located m history.
