As Regent of Old Ninety Six
District chapter, Daughters of the
American Revolution, I have the hon
or and privilege to submit to you the
following summary of our year's
In a quiet way we hav? been active
in every movement for National and
.State D. A. R. advancements, believ
ing that true patriotism and what
ever tends to develop the institutions
of the Daughters of the American
Revolution adds to our assets. But
^we proudly confess that our great
est interest, efforts and energies
have been devoted to Tamass'ee In
dustrial School ,and with the happy
thought that every dollar invested in
this institution for indigent moun
tain children, is but another bead
added to our rosary of love and de
votion to the pride of the D. A. R.
of South Carolina.
During my encumbency the fol
lowing contributions have been
.made: To Tamassee Industrial school
one pair of feather pillows, sent in
.September, and in October $25, thus
liquidating the first foundership
3>ledge of $100 made in 1916. In
January $25 was again sent as our
ifirst payment on our second founder
ship pledge of $100. This second
foundership is a memorial to our two
deceased members, Mrs. Linie Mims
, Allen and Mrs. Fannie A. Tompkins.
As we buoyantly tread life's fragrant
pathway, we think it eminently and
truly fitting to scatter rose leaves
.and flowers to keep fresh the mem
tory of our departed members.
On recommendation of the Execu
tive Board all chapters were request
ed to contribute $50 for current ex
penses of this school, and according
ly, this plan was unanimously adopt
ed at the State Conference, and for
this purpose the "Tamassee Drive"
-was inaugurated. During March a
canvass was made among our mem
bers when $50 was subscribed to the
""Drive Fund,' 'thus securing the re
quired amount, and consequently
getting Old Ninety Six District chap
ter on the honor1 roll. $10 was con
tributed to the Georgetown School.

Campaign in Interest of De
Columbia, June 15.-New deter
mination to utilize and capitalize thi
possibilities of this commonwealtl
was the outstanding feature of th<
"Do it for South Carol?na" dinnei
given in this city on Monday even,
ing. The message of the occasion was
the need in South Carolina of a keen
er sense of what Governor Coopei
calls "statemindedness," and out of
the gathering came a united expres
sion that "South Carolina can do it,
and she will."
The dinner .was arranged by Gov
ernor Cooper. Former Governor Man
ning and the'members oft the state
committee of which they are the
heads, for the purpose of formally
launching the expansion campaign of
the South Carolina Development
Board. The invitations to the event
included those in each . of the 46
counties who have assumed the lead
ership of the campaign in their sec
tions. In addition, all the editors of
the state were asked to attend that
they might have first hand knowledge
of this movement and the aims and
purposes which have inspired it.
The campaign for memberships
and support for the development
board will open next Monday, June
21. The goals are 10,000 members
and an annual income of $250,000,
all pledged for three years. A large
share of the income will be represent
ed by a sustaining fund apart from
the membership dues. In every coun
ty there is a campaign organization,
the counties being grouped in 10 dis
tricts. The plan is to complete the
drive in four days.
Growing interest in the movement
which is represented by the Develop
ment Board has given members of
the state committees opportunity to
make a new definition of the under
"This is a straight business propo
sition," it is, said. "If there is any
idealism in the organization it is con
fined to the one ambition to make
South Carolina the best state in the
union and then tell the world about
it," which is another way of saying
that we will capitalize our reputa
tion, our resources and our possibili
"The program of the board is a
clean cut appeal to the practical
sense of every South Carolinian, one
which will put money in his pocket.
Every salient feature of the program
has a direct bearing upon the busi
ness interests and personal welfare
of every citizen, no matter where he
lives or how he makes his living.
"Improvement of the educational
system and of health and sanitation
throughout the state, the equaliza
tion of assessment and taxation, the
encouragement of road building in
every section ,the establishment of
home cash markets; attention to all
of these and a dozen other matters
will be reflected in the prosperity of
every citizen and every community.
It would be impossible to take up
these projects in any one county
without benefitting the other coun
ties. But the scope of the work of
the South Carolina Development
Board will be state-wide."
State Campaign to Open on
Itineraries for candidates for state
offices and for the United States sen
ate and congress have been arranged
by the special committee of the
State Democratic executive commit
tee. The state campaign will open ih
June 22, with aspirants for the
United States senate and congress
given the initial hearing in Sumter."
The former will close in Newberry,1
while the latter will terminate in
Charleston. Two rest periods of eight
days each break the monotony of the
long and winding trail. The commit
tee was composed of Wilie Jones, H.
N. Edmunds and G. A. Guignard.
The last day for filing pledges and
paying the assessment fee is noon of
June 21, the day prior to the opening
of the campaign. The pledges may be
filed with Thomas P. Cothran of
Greenville, chairman of the execu
tive committee, or for the conve
nience of candidates with Harry N.
Edmunds of Columbia, secretary, or
Wilie Jones of Columbia, treasurer.
A pledge must also be filed with.the
secretary of state.
The assessments must be paid to
Mr. Jones, treasurer. The fees for
the different offices follows: United
States senate, $400; congress, $175;
governor, $150! all other state offices
$75; solicitor, $75. The assessments
must be paid by 12 o'clock, noon,
