Value of a College Education
There was never a time when expert knowl
edge was so highly prized and so highly com
High wages for untrained labor will tempt
many a young man to discount the value of a
college education. But such an education, repre
senting the work of four years, viewed merely
as an investment of time and money, is equal in
earning capacity to an estate of more than $50,
What estate comparable with this can give
the parent of average means hope to give or
leave to his son? What young man can acquire
that much value in the same time at any other
Education fits one for a life whose possibili
ties are limited only by his capacity and charac
ter. Eventually for the untrained there awaits
the slavery of ignorant and undirected effort.
Clemson College brings within the reach of
every young man in South Carolina the benefits
and possibilities of a technical education^ At
Clemson College a boy from the humblest home
in South Carolina can prepare himself for a
high place in the service of his state and nation.

Nujol works on an en
tirely new principle.
Instead of forcing or irritating
the system, it simply softens
the food waste. This enables
the many tiny muscles in the
walls of the intestines, contract
ing and expanding in their nor
mal way, to squeeze the food
waste along so that it passes
naturally out of the system.
Nujol thus prevents constipa
tion because it helps Nature
maintain easy, thorough bowel
movements at regular intervals
-the healthiest habit in the
Nujol is absolutely harmless
and pleasant to take. Try it.
Nujol is sold by all druggists in sealed bottles only, bearing Nujol trade
mark. Write Nujol Laboratories, Standard Oil Co. (New Jersey),
