I hope every school will do what

woolon quilt squares. The boys each
gave ten cents to buy tho lining, and
Mrs. J. A. Hendy pul the .squares to

In tho war, and has so much sympa

MANNING S IMO A KS FOI? ACREAGE
Reduction-Thousands Who Do Not
Vet Realiz? Seriousness.
Columbia, Feb. 21.-Speaking at
a meeting of the South Carolina Ag- J
ricultural and Mechanical Society on |
last Wednesday night, former Gover
nor Richard I. Manning declared
that financial ruin faces the South
unless there is a material reduction
in tho cotton acreage this year. He
declared that there are thousands of
people who do not yet realize the
seriousness of the situation.
Mr. Manning said that there was
I a large surplus of cotton on hand,
and that tho production of anything
' over a half crop this year would
mean ruinous prices next fall. He
said that .tho truth of the situation
ought to be driven homo to every
citizen of the State.
A letter which is being sent out
over the country by tho thous;.ods
by a prominent New York banker, in
which the statement is mnde ih.il
the welfare of the whole cou uti y
rests on the outcome of the cotton
depression, was quoted by Governor
Manning. The banker warned tho
South that credits extended it by the
bankers of the North would be regu
lated by the reduction In the cotton
acreage.
Governor Manning urged the so
ciety to lend its hearty Bunport to
tlie acreage reduction campaign we
llig conducted by tho American Cot
ton Association.
At tho conclusion of Mc. Man
ning's remarks the society unani
mously adopted a resolution, offered
Ijy Capt. G. N. Nicklcs, of Due Wost,
endorsing the acreage reduction
campaign of the American Cotton
Association and calling on every far
mor of the State to not plant over
one-third of his cultivated land in
cotton.. The resolution ?. .asks * ever*

NOTICE TO SCHOOLS OF COUNTY.
Time for Compulsory Attendance Not
Yet Expired.
There have been various questions
asked about the compulsory school
attendance situation.
The County Board of Education
put the "compulsory law" on the
15tb of November, 1920, nnd to con
tinue for four consecutive months,
and that time ls not yet out, and all
those schools that did not start at
that time will have to complete tho
four months, or the whole term, ns
some districts have the compulsory
law for the whole term; and in such
schools as do not have a four-months
term, the school law requires tho
pupils to attend the full term.
Now, I have in my hnnds the evi
dence ngalnst severnl patrons who
are violating this law, and 1 am only
waiting to get tho papers from the
State Board of Education to toke tho
action in the premises that the law
says shall bo taken, nnd that, action
j will be to proceed against tho de
linquent ones. ?
Now, I am your friend, and want
to help you to send your children to
school, in ordor that those children
may be able to make bolter citizens
than you have been. Our solo object
ought to be to make this old world
better by having lived In lt.
Now. those who think thal this
"compulsory law" is a fake will find
themselves disappointed soon. I do
wish that, our legislntive members
could see tho homos and haunts that
I have visited In some sections of
our great county while visiting the
schools and looking up delinquents.
A community ls judged by the
schools nnd churches lt has, and
there is something strange when ono
ls placed in n position lo note how
they rise and fall. With efficient
preachers and teachers they go right
up. end with deficient preachers and
teachers the communities soon dlo
away. So it is willi the counties and
on to the States.
I took the position of county at
tendance officer In ordor that T could
be In n position to help moko Oconeo
county tho banner county in tho
State, and I fool that I have not
worked In vain. J. R. Plyler.

oral statement after a long confer
ence between the'tw? men on the
foreign problems that must bo. solved
after March 4tb^Ieither Mr. Hard
ing nor tho prospective hoad of tho
State Department added any formal
comment.
There was no element of surprise
in the selection, for il had been
known for severn! weeks that Mr.
Hughes virtually was certain to be
given the place. Ho ls understood
to have beon Mr. Harding's choleo
from the first, despite strong pres
sure on behalf of other aspirants.
In making this announcement Mr.
Harding declined to go Into details
about tho subjects discussed with Mr.
Hughes during their all-day confer
ence, saying that one of the policies
of hl6 administration would bo to lot
each department hoad speak for
himself. Mr. Hughes, in his turn, de
clared no public statement on tho
problems ahead would be expedient
nt this time.
"Of course," Mr. Hughes added,
"1 appraise lt as a groat privilege to
be Invited by Mr. Harding to serve
In his administration, and I regard
lt as an imperative obTigattoh to ac* .
cept."
