Clinkscales of Wofford College, Spar
tanburg, today accepted the chair
manship of the prohibition enforce
ment campaign, it was announced by
J. McSwain Woods, state director.
The acceptance of the vice-chairman
ship by the Rev. C. E. Burts, D. D.,

divines in South Carolina.
Appointments of state executive
committeemen will he announced
shortly and the complete organiza
tion of the state for the movement
will be effected as rapidly as possible.
The South Carolina campaign is
part of the general Southeastern
? campaign to enforce prohibition and
to wage a campaign of education and
Americanization. The campaign will
co-operate with D. J. Gantt, recently
appointed by the government to su
pervise the enforcement of prohibi
tion in the Southeast. The necessity
for such a campaign has been
brought home to prohibitionists of
South Carolina by the increased ac
tivity of moonshiners and bootleg
gers and by deaths from wood alco
hol, sold as corn liquor.
Leaders of the drys declare that
the hardest fight for prohibition is
just ahead and that the enforcement
of prohibition will be more difficult
than its enactment into law.

Why Use Bank Drafts?
Why do the large business houses with whom you
deal always ask you to remit by "bank draft."
Because they know it it the safest and most econom
ical way to remit funds. We advise all our custom
ers to get the habit of using our drafts. They are in
expensive, absolutely safe and expedient. You cannot
lose money transmitted in this way and always have
an automatic record of your transactions. If you do
not thoroughly understand the bank draft system we
will be glad to explain it to yon.
