Western Division Federation
of Women's Clubs in Edgefield
On Thursday, October 21, Edge
field had the honor of entertaining
the representatives of almost thirty
clubs from the Western Distrist,
about 50 delegates from seven coun
Mrs. C. P. Corn graciously and ef
ficiently presided' and lost no time in
carrying out the splendid program.
The meeting was opened with
prayer by Mrs. Rufus K. Fant, State
president, and the secretary was
Miss Ruth Crouch of Saluda.
Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman, president
of the Philharmonic club of Edge
field gave the welcome address which
was responded to by Mrs Harry Aull
Miss Elizabeth Rainsford gave a
vocal solo with piano accompaniment
by Miss Gladys Padgett.
The report of the vice-president
for the division was very interesting
and hopeful. Mrs. Cora has done
splendid service in her responsible
position during her term of service.
Mrs. Rufus Fant of Anderson,
made a stimulating address on the
subject "Lengthening the Cords and
Strengthening the Stakes." She gave
examples of Deborah, Esther, Joan
of Arc, Frances Willard and Susan
B. Anthony as women of great vis
ion and achievements. Mrs. Fant
stated that there were about 165
clubs in the state, none of them of
a purely social nature, some con
structive aim being required before
they can be accepted into the Feder
ation. "Every woman should belong
to some club for the unlift of hu
manity." "South Carolina stands at
the foot of the list in 'illiteracy, and
committed more murders than any
state in the union last year." Mrs
Fant said the passage of the ISth
Amendment was the greatest boon
to the homes of our country since
the sacrifice of the Saviour. Cheers
followed Mrs. Fant's declaration of
her loyalty to the 18th Amandment
for national prohibition.
The 19th Amendment for Wo
man's suffrage was spoken of as a
sacred shrine, and the people were
looking to the women to solve thc
moral problems of our state. Women
stand for an increase of taxes nec
essary to educate our children; stand
for Smith-Towner bill which will se
cure federal appropriation for edu
cation, for women on all local and
school boards and as superintendents
Mrs. Hugh Mitchell gave a lovely
piano solo, "Alice, Where Art Thou."

from, those of Allendale, Bath, Fair
fax, Ellenton, Ridge Spring and Sa
luda, the Edgefield civic League re
port being made by Miss Katherine

which was secured the first appropri

education and professional training
of the women of the state for teach

and for the duties of life, by provid

Health was sent by Mrs. Dodd of Co
lumbia, and Mrs. Munsell on "Social
and Industrial Conditions."
Miss Zena Payne as chairman of
Americanization made a good report.
, Someone looking on said if they
h?d not known where they were, they
might have believed themselves to be
in a convention of preachers, so al
truistic was the spirit of the meeting
and so full of plans for the good of
the world. If any man doubted the
fact that women want the ballot they
would have had their eyes opened
on this occasion, for there was a
round of cheers whenever anything
on this subject was brought up. The
whole day was one of uplift and en
The next meeting will he held with

dreds of bituminous coal operators
from various producing fields
throughout the country reached
Cleveland tonight for a general meet
ing here tomorrow at which a commu j
nication from Attorney General Pal
mer, urging action toward a lower

will be taken up.
The meeting, which has been call

of the aggregate soft coal output,
which will this year reach nearly
550,000,000 tons, can not, because
of the nature of its charter take any
action relating to price fixng. Be-,
cause of this, Colonel Wentz decided
to put the matter before the general
body of coal operators, but as indi

While it is not thought that the
operators at tomorrow's meeting will
attempt to fix any maximum price
for soft coal, it is understood that

Cleveland tonight might support a
resolution favoring "fair a.id reason
able" prices, and only a reasonable
profit to the operators.
