It is said that the armament limi
tation conference cost the American
government $250,000. Well, it was
worth that and more. Promoting
peace is not nearly so?expensive as
prosecuting war, leaving out of the
question the shedding of human
. . . .
One of the greatest needs of far
mers at this crucial time is better
marketing facilities. According to the
Newberry Observer, Newberry has
the best community market in the
state and Spartar.burg has the next
best. Greenwood also has a fine com
munity market which is of great ben
fit to the consumers as well as the
producers. Suppo.se a farmer brings
a load of fresh vegetables to market,
anstead of having to peddle them
from door to door in an unsatisfac
tory way, he takes them to the com
munity market where the housewives
and others go every morning to sup
ply their needs. In that way chick
ens, eggs, butter, vegetables and oth
er farm products are disposed of at
good prices. In short, a community
market is a means, of making it easy
for the producer to sell and likewise
easier for the consumers to buy. j
Community markets are made possi- '
ble in other counties through the ef- I
forts of county and home demonstra
tion'' agents. Other counties have
these helpers in the time of need, but
Edgefield has not.

The Late Governor's Pardons.
Governor Cooper, in his reply to
the Greenwood Index-Journal, defies
public opinion in South Carolina and
says, "I don't intend to explain my
pardon record or the recent pardons
which have been criticized," and adds
"The records are iri the governor's
office, and anyone can examine them
It would be rather inconvenient for
bis late constituents to go all the
.way to Columbia for that, when he
could do it for them in a few words.
It appears from Ex-Governor
Cooper's statement that he does not
intend to ask further honors at the
bands of the people of South Caro
lina, else he would not assume such an
independent attitude. But whether
be intends to ask for further favors
or not, he owes it to the people, for
what they have already done for him,
to make a reasonable explanation of
his official acts when requested to do
so. As the Newberry Observer says, j
few people have the time to go to
Columbia and dig into the records of '.
Governor Cooper. As he seems so f
averse to making an explanation, j
probably Ex-Governor Cooper would
just a little prefer that the records,
be not given to the public. ?j

music enlivening the moments.
When supper was announced, the
merry company repaired to the din

An elaborate menu of breast of
chicken, rice, giblet gravy, macaroni,
green peas, biscuits, Saratoga chips,
pickles and iced tea, tomatoes with
mayonnaise and chicken salad on let

master, calling on a number of guests
for responses and reading the good
wishes that each guest had written

to be in the Rives-Greneker wedding
on Wednesday evening, entertained
for Miss Gladys Rives.
The spacious hall was adorned
?with roses, the adjoining living and
dining rooms being beautiful with
masses of vari-colored sweet peas,
and in this charming suite of rooms
were arranged the card tables.
Mrs. Rhett Nicholson made top

On Saturday afternoon Miss Gladys

the honoree at a. delightful party
given by Mrs. B. B. Jones and Mrs.

to entertaining as this spacious one.
The guests were met at the door

The honoree and two of her attend
ants, Mrs. Julian Bland and Miss
Elizabeth Rives were served sep
arately, Mrs. Lovick Smith rolling in
a tea wagon adorned with brilliant
nasturtiums and lighted yellow can

group. Miss Rives wore a very be
coming gown of periwinkle lace with
hat to match.
The decorations of the parlor and
drawing room were unique and at
tractive in the extreme. Orange lil
lies were gracefully draped from the
chandeliers, while the lights were
covered with orange shades. Nastur
tiums and lighted candles adorned
the Colonial mantles so that a.yellow
glow was diffused over the group of
beautifully gowned guests.
This was one of the most beautiful
of the number of parties given for
Edgefield brides this spring. The out

Former Federal Prohibition
John R. Kramer, former Federal
prohibition commissioner, who re
cently toured the state of Missouri
under the auspices of the Anti-Sa
loon League of America, in one of his
lectures declared, as quoted by the
Springfield (Mo.) Leader, "that the
enforcement of prohibition is only a
matter of a few years, for within a
short period the coming generation
will take charge of the affairs of the
nation, and that generation will have
little knowledge of the appetite for
liquor, due to the fact that the man
ner in which it is now sold attracts
no one but the man who has an un
usually strong appetite for the same."
Mr. Kramer sounded an alarm to
the supporters of prohibition and
pointed out the following mistakes
made by them.
"Slacking up of efforts of the sup
porters of prohibition after the pas
sage of the law.
"Leaving the enforcement to the
"Lack of interest of local officers
in the law's enforcement.
"Feeling by the prohibition sup
porters that they have won, and a
'cocksure' feeling as to the ground
that has been gained."
One important essential quality of
Americanism is obedience to the laws,
a respect for the majority. That is
the basis for all nationalism. If one
