Dear Brother Mims:

cessful service at Rutherford College
I am back in the pastorate at Boone,

An Organized Minority May
Destroy an Unorganized
.In Russia there are about 180,000
000 people, but less than 10 per cent
of them, so its said, were in any way
identified actively or passively with
thc Bolshevistic campaign which
brought chaos to that country. Ten
per cent of the population, or less, J
\vs organized and mobilized as
2 ;ainst 90 per cent unorganized and
without leadership. The result is ,
just what will always happen when j
an organized minority of even 10
per cent, aggressively and vigorously
led, can dominate 90 per cent unor
ganized to their destruction. This is
true in politics as in war. An organi
zed army of 100,000 can easily rout
and completely destroy an unorgan- j
ized body of 1,000,000 unequipped
. There are more than 40,000,000
people in the United States engaged
in gainful occupation. It is estimated
by labor union people that there are
3,000,000 members cf labor organi- 1
zations. Secretary of Labor Wilson j
stated some time ago that while there (
are 13,000,000 people in this coun- 1
try eligible for membership in the (
American Federation of Labor, 1,000 (
000 of them are still not organized 1
as members. These 3,000,000 organi- i
zed union men compacted together (
into a solid body under the leader- 1
ship of the aggressive radicals of to- i
day will endanger and possibly de- t
stroy the freedom of more than 37,
000,000 laboring people of other
kinds and of others not members of i
labor unions, unless the non-union 1
people promptly and aggressively 1
make ready to protect themselves. ?
It would be unspeakable folly fer
this unorganized mass to believe in
its own safety by reason of its num
bers. Against a force of 3,000,000
organized union labor men th?! 37,
00v/,000 of unorganized workers will
be helpless, so long as they are not
united in any cohesive power for pro- 1
tecting themselves against this mi- j
Russia's experience should warn j
us of the danger of remaining asleep
while an aggressive minority dig3 at
the foundation of our national life.
It behooves non-union people in
every walk of life, men who value
their own independence and the in
dependence of the nation, to be alert
to these conditions, and in advance
to formulate their plans to see that
.a small minority led by the rankest
radicals of the age shall not ruin
America, in order to rule over this
wreck and glory in the opportunity
of looting it, as Lenine and Trotsky
and their followers have done in
Our safety is not in numbers, but
in organization and in an awakened
consciousness of the situation, and
ja. grim determination that radicals
and the politics which toadied to rad
icalism shall not sacrifice the people
of this country and its existence as a
republic, at the behest of this small
minority, dominated to a large ex
tent by Anarchists, Socialists and

"Tarzan of the Apes" Coming!
Tarzan-the ape-man-who was
stolen from his parents, Lord and
Lady Greystroke, and reared by a
mother ape in the jungles, will thrill
Edgefield soon with his wonderful
daring. The Tarzan books by Edgar
Rice Burroughs need no introduction
t oEdgefield readers, and the knowl
edge that the magnificent photoplay,
under the auspices of the Episcopal
Guild, is to be seen here at an early
date, is of great interest. It cost the
producers three hundred thousand
dollars to film this great scenario. It
shows prowling, growling, skulking
lions, apes, baboons, gorillas, ele
phants, tigers, leopards in the native
haunts. A cannibal village of three
acres was burned to the ground dur
ing the action of the play. Two thou
sand native Brazilians were congre
gated in the jungles of the Amazon
River selvas for the wierd scenes.
There is a thrilling fight between
Tarzan and a lion, also one between
the same hero and a giant-baboon.
There is an elephant raid oh natives
and fights between many different
ferocious animals, hundreds of which
are used in the production.
Tarzan will entertain and educate
alike, thrilling to children and grown

L. Mims, who gave an account of the
recent State convention in Marion,
and Mrs. W. B. Cogburn and Mrs. W.
L. Dunovant who had also been invit
ed to be present, were called upon
for remarks. Mrs. Carroll Cogburn al
so attended from Edgefield.
The hostess served at the close of

Only a Cold.
Are you ill? is often answered
"Oh! it's only a cold," as if a cold
was a matter of little consequence,
but people are beginning to learn
that a common cold it a matter not
to be trifled with, that some of the
most serious diseases start with a
cold. As soon as the first indication
of a cold appears take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. Remember that the
sooner you get rid of your cold the
less the danger, and this remedy will
help you to throw it off.
