A headline says '"The world needs

We have been told from our youth
np that figures don't lie, yet it is al
most unbelievable that more cotton
has been ginned in Edgefild county
this fall than last-?-20,442 bales in
1919 and 21,364 in 1920.
-The action of Republican leaders
in Congress in thwarting plans to aid
cstrickes cotton, corn and wheat
.growers, is mighty poor pay for the
loyalty of western farmers during
the recent campaign and election.

Don't you think it would be the
?part of wisdom for Congress to go
a. little slow in making appropriations
until a forecast is made of the 1921
income tax receipts? It is not difficult
to figure on which side of the loss
and gain account the balance will be
.with corn, wheat and cotton growers.

Wages Being Lowered.
The papers report numerous in
stances of reduction of wages of em
ployees of cotton mills. As much as
it is to be regretted, such action was
inevitable. When raw material and
thc manufactured product decline,
.labor, a very considerable item in
the cost of manufacture, must like
wise decline. It is hoped, however,
that wages will never be as low as
at one time in the past. Every labor
er is worthy of his hire, and that hire
. should be sufficient to provide a com
.?ortable living, plus a reasonable j
. amount of luxuries and pleasures.
.No class of people should be forced
by economic conditions to merely eke
While it has made the cost of
. ready-to-wear garments higher tn
price, yet every unselfish person re
joices that the old "sweat shops" of
- the -congested cities are things of the
psst. Along with the decline of seoras
of other things, a reduction of wages
?was expected but let us hope that
conditions will not make too great

Salude Standard Changes Hands. .
We reluctantly bid adieu to Mr.
Grady Hazel who founded the Saluda
. Standard a number of years ago and
who has made it such a creditable
newspaper. He has sold the paper to
Mr. Ira Armfieid and his brother
and passes from the field of journal
ism into more profitable fields of ac
tivity. Mr. Ha2?l has been a credit
and an honor to.journalism and has
through his paper been a strong fae- .
tor in building up the town of Salu
da. But. we. trust that he will not
.It gives us pleasure to say that
Th? Standard is still in good and
capable hands. As editor Mr. Ira
Armfieid will labor unceasingly for
the further growth of Saluda and for
the common good of the county. Be
sides being well qualified as editor,
being a graduate of the Citadel, Mr.
Armfieid, like his brother who is as
sociated with him, is a practical
newspaper' man, which in times of
great stress and strain, like the pres*
ent, counts for much in' making a
newspaper. The new owners of The
Standard have located in one of the
best newspaper fields in the State,
there being but one paper in the
county, and we feel confident that
they will make good by measuring
ap to the highest expectation of the
clientele. The Advertiser wishes them
a full measure of success. They rich
ly deserve it. ...

And of some the folks-see? ?f
First of all our cracker-jacker
Teacher, Dr. R. G. Lee.
Then hurrah for our Baraca,
And the good that we have done;
May our ranks include no slacker
Till we have the victory won.
You should not miss a single meet
You'll always be glad you come
When you h?Ve received the greet
That you get from Billie Strom.
There you'll see our Miss . Ruth

Our pianist so bright and fair;
May she play for us in Zion '.
When we reach the "Over There."
Then Miss Wilson and Miss Parker,
Whose music we so dearly love;
It makes us think of angel harpers
That will play for us above.
Now to all the others, greeting;
I'd like to name them one by one,
But time is precious, time is fleet
And my song is nearly sung.
Then hurrah for our Barac?,
May each day bring members new;
May our ranks include no slacker
Who comes only to the stew.
