Gov John Gary Evans Urges
Women to Vote.
John Gary Evans, of Spartanburg,
jormer governor of South Carolina,
made a forceful address before the
Crescent Community Club and the
Woman's club of the Fifth ward, the
guests of the Crescent Club, at the
home of Mrs. W. B. Moore, on Au
gusta street yesterday afternoon.
Prior to Mr. Evans' speech, Mrs.
Moore introduced Mrs. Henry Allen,
pr?sidant of the Fifth Ward Club who
spoke briefly on the accomplishments
of her club during the past year.
Mr. Evans said that he had made
political speeches in barns, lofts and
street corners, but never before in
the shelter and atmosphere of a cul
tured home, and he saluted the day
of "home politics" and all that goes
with it. The burden pf his address was
a strong plea to the women to enroll,
to vote, to put forward women can
"Women should not stay out of
politics and exert an indirect influ
ence; you should have women in your
delegation-women who have made
a success of their own affairs and
who are familiar with the affairs of
the county and state-call them
'brides of the state' if you will," said
He impressed upon the women that
this is the most important election
that voters have been called upon to
take part in since the war between
the states, and based his assertion,
first upon the financial reconstruc
tion that will have to take place in
the administration of both county and
state affairs. He cited the fact that
lower part of the state has not yet
paid 50 per cent of the taxes due,
that the state has a large debt, that
every educational institution owned
by the state will come up with a defi
cit; hence only the ablest financiers
must hold the offices, men who have
sound judgment on the tax question
and its adjustment. He stated that
it would probably be necessary to tax
like the Europeans, "coming, gwine,
and in the middle, too." Women
should further take note of the crimi
nal organization that exists-what
amounts to an organization, Mr. Ev
ans charges. He read an actual form
for application to the "Association
to Repeal Prohibition," in existence,
wherein the members actually com
mit themselves to vote only for the
candidates who stand pat for the re
peal of the Volstead act. "See that
you women put a man-or a woman
-into office who gives assurance that
he is standing for prohibition, and
one who won't turn the bootlegger
Out of the $12,000,000 that the
state spends for the education, high
er and lower, for its children, there
is provided an average of not quite
six months schooling; properly ad
ministered this sum should secure an
average of nine months, he said. Mr.
Evans also drew applause when he
stated that the women should see that
something is done about a system
that allows the men teachers to draw
almost twice as much pay for the
same work, with the same education,
that a woman draws. Judge Evans'
criticism is that there is to loose ad
ministration of the county affairs;
that the county governments should
be scrutized more closely.
Will Get His Vote.
The Spartanburg lawyer and for
mer governor was most positive in
his statements that the good women
who are out for office will get his
vote. "I don't know one who is run
ning who is not competent. I am go
ing to vote for a good one for the
state superintendent of education
and for the superintendent of Spar
tanburg county." He impressed upon
the women present that if they did
not make a considerable showing on
election day the thugs, the man who
stands for graft, waste, bad govern
ment, will meet it with an "I told
you so. All they care about is dress.
They can't think. They won't think.
They don't want to vote." He urged
strongly the enrolling of all women
on Saturday, set aside throughout
the state as "Woman's Day." Mr. Ev
ans stated that the politics-in-the
home air that pervaded this summer's
election called to mind another scene
he had witnessed. At the inaugura
tion of the last governor, he stated
that legislators of South Carolina
sat around with their feet on desks
smoking cigars or cigarettes as their
tastes inclined, filling the air with
fumes while the most sacred oath of
th 2 state of South Carolina was being
administered. He branded it degener
acy and awaited the actual entry of
women into the administraion.

The East Drowning of Sa
In the spring of nineteen-twenty,
It had rained most every day
And the 'brooklets, creeks and rivers
I Rushed in torrents on their way.
It was on the fourth of April
In the Easter even-tide
That eleven youngsters ventured
O'er Savannah wild and wide. . .
They have crossed, but not Savannah,
Yet beyond this veil of care
When their friends have crossed the
May they find their loved ones there.
Not a dream of lurking danger,
Not a tear stood in their eye,
Not a farewell kiss to mother,
Nor a father's last goodbye.
Forth they went in quest of pleasure,
As so often youngsters do,
In the bloom of youth and beauty,
Brave young men and maidens true.
They had gone to Harpers' Ferry,
For they lived not far away;
And the boatman's wife was teacher
Of the district school, they say.
"Let us cross the brimmnig river,"
Someone yelled in youthful glee,
"It is well," the others echoed
In a voice of ecstasy.
All were on, and then the boatman
With his young and lovely bride,
When the flat was loose from anchor,
Started for the other side.
Now the strong and goodly cable
Held the flat boat in its place,
But the rough and angry waters1
Showed that time had left its trace.
When they reached the mighty cur
Which with wondrous swiftness ran,
Then the cable post was broken;
Thus divides the work of man.
As the flat swung down the river,
Half restrained and partly free,
Then the air was rent with screaming
And with cries of agony.
Soon the goodly flat was sunken;
They must sleep but not to dream;
Eleven start and ten are missing
On that voyage across the stream.
One was left to tell the story,
Thomas Bradshaw was his name,
But the missing live forever
In our memory's hall of fame.
Two of them were Misses Bradshaw,
They were sisters, understand;
Mannings three, two girls and brother
And a boy named Sutherland.
Lester Waters, too, was missing,
With his young and lovely bride;
Charles Mechine and Alice, also,
Perished in that loss of life.
Easter, night was swiftly falling
As the tragic news was borne
To the loved ones of the missing
And the friends who came to mourn.
After days of tireless searching,
Through the sunshine, rain or chill,
In the bosom of Savannah
Three of them are sleeping still.
Gone are they, but not forgotten;
Change is wrought by fleeting time;
In the bloom of youth and beauty
Is the temptor's sweetest chime.
Let us heed this note of warning,
As the path of life we plod;
Then, my precious friend, and reader
Oh, prepare to meet thy God.
Near the Town pf Up-Against-It, in
the land of Root-or-Die,
We have found our finest, inspira
tions, You and I;
Toiling up the hill called Have-To,
with Compulsion for a guide,
We have made the sort of effort that
was never yet denied.
In the way were Can't and Couldn't,
with their brother, What's-the-Use,
While our dearest foe, Born-Weary,
seized with joy each poor excuse;
Yet behind us, unrelenting, drove our
heartless master, Must,
And our feet essayed no lagging,
spite of Hill or Heat or Dust.
It was there we grew the sinews for
the struggle, You and I,
Near the town of Up-Against-It, in
the land of Root-or-Die. ?
Near the village Up-Against-It, in
the land of Root-or-Die,
We discovered possibilities undream
ed, You and I;
Were there heartaches in the juor
ney, little then our master cared,
As along the stony highway, under
whip and spur we fared.
Bread and Butter trudged beside U3
with a keen and ruthless goad,
That should quicken halting footsteps
if we loitered on the road.
Pride and Spunk, two comely sisters,
lured ns on with mystery wiles,
All the master's welts were painless
as we feasted on their smiles.
So our hearts grew strong to con
quer, as we plodded, You and I,
Past the hamlet, Up-Against-It, in
the land of Root-or-Die.
