New York, March IO.-The nation
wide tributo to Woodrow Wilson,
winch has been promoted by a num
ber of his admirers, probably will
take the form of a $500,000 fund to
ho contributed in small amounts, the
interest on which will bo devoted to
rewarding tho ono who during the
year has dono tho greatest service
lo humanity. Tho nature of the ser
vice for which tho award will be
made, it was announced hero to
night, is to he dollnod by Mr. Wil
son, who has boen informed of the
project and is said to have expressed
himself as deeply appreciative of tho
honor paid and tho purpose for
which tho money is to be used.
The idea originated with women
admirers of Mr. Wilson, who work
ed in the last campaign to gain sup
port for the League of Nations.
The proposed fund, at 5 per cent,
would yield $2r>,000 a year and
would be awarded by a jury, lt is
said that it would compare favorably
with the Nobel peace prize, which
amounts ordinarily to $ 10,000 a

An Intorostlng study for tho prac

title ils "Factors that Make for Suc

is well illustrated, concise, and up
to-date, including many charts that
are very illuminating.
lt starts off with the farm ac
counts of a 276-acr? farm in Geor
gia, showing how accounts should
bo kept. Thou there ls a table show
ing how tho size of farms influenced
tho earning powor, tho four-mulo
farms (showing tho greatest variation
In earning powor. A number of tho
farms of Brooks and Sumter coun
ties, Gool gla, were studied by tho
writers und statistics obtained. (This
was just before the World War and
before serious damage by tho boll
Tho influence of crop yield por
aero ls shown by a comparison 'be
tween two far mis of practically tho
same size. eto>. Farm A had 120
acres in crops; Farm B had 122
acres; Farm A bad a yield of 2 27
pounds per acre against 33 6 for D.
The net Income for Farm A was
$3 02 against $1,768 for Farm B.
This shows tho bearing that good
yields per aero have on profit.
Factors that maintain and in
creaso crop yields are next discussed
with many illustrations and charts.
The value of rotation with plenty of j
legumes is stressed. Two fields, each
having 330 pounds of feitilizer per I
acre, showed that with cotton af ter j
cotton 279 pounds per aero was ob
tained, compared with 511 pounds j
with cotton following cowpeals.
Oals after crab grass and oats af-j
ter velvet beans showed a still more
remarkable difference, tho yield in
the first case being 7.1 bushels as j
compared with 28.6 bushels In the
latter case. In five years a corn crop I
wats increased from 18 bushels per!
acre ro 50 bushels per acre by turn
ing under crimson clover, as against |
letting tho land Ile out or "rest"
every othor year.
Tho practice of selecting the corn
In the held for seed showed an in
crease of five bushels per acre over
seed planted on an adjoining acre
whore tho seed was not selocted.
The increased yield of crops due
to a proper rotation is shown very
The loss of money resulting from
harvesting cotton slowly and at late
dates is shown.

Tbl? cotton would he rated as "low

of tho staple ls bringing only three

it is cbeapor to plow it under while

GREENWOOD CLAPS DOWN LID
On Public Dances-llavo Brought
Unfavorable Criticism to City.
Greenwood, March 5.-Editor Ko
oweo Courier: Tho dances given in
tbts city have become tho subject of
so much unfavorable criticism that
at a mooting of the city council last
Thursday night strong steps wore
taken, and all public dances woro
rulen out. The council let It be
known that, If nocesary, an ordi
nance to this effect would bo passed.
Tho so-called oratorical ball boro
last spring, was considered a disgrace
to Greenwood, and was sovoroly
condomned by tho press and by tho
good people of Greenwood. Whllo
thoso dances may not be any worse
than they aro at other places, they
aro not wantod hore. Prosldonts of
colleges have written citizens pro
testing against a dance here In con
nection with tho oratorical contest!
which ls to bo bold hore In April.
Tho chamber of commerce got be
hind the dance proposition, and its
request to council acted. It should
be undoistood that tho good people]
of Greenwood aro in hearty sympathy
with tho action of council, and that
they are strongly opposed to these
dances, as are tho preachers and col
logo presidents, who have mado pro
tests against thom.
Tho following is tho text of tho
resolution passod by tho council and
the lottor of tho chamber of com
"Whereas public dances conduct
ed In this town for tho last two or
three yoars, to which all porsons,
regardless of character, have been
admitted on payment of an admit
tance foe, have given rise to much
advorso criticism and condemnation
by our religious and educational
leaders: Therefore bo it resolved-|
"First. That wu desire to assure
thoso who have tho religious and
moral well-being of tho young peo
ple of trf s community at heart that
we are in full sympathy with them
in all efforts for tho prosrvailon of
the good name of this community.
"Second. That while we do not
think it wise or necessary to enact
an ordinance prohibiting public
dances at this time, wo stand roady
to enact such an ordinance if the
prevailing sentiment of tho good
people is still disregarded."
Following is tho lotter to the city |
clerk from the ^hatobor of com
merce in regard to tho dance situa
"Owing to tho fact that Green
wood has suffered to a great extont
from the criticisms, whether just or
unjust, directed at the open public
dances given In Gibbs Hall, on tho
occasion of tho 11)20 oratorical con
test, wo respectfully request that
you submit to tho etty council at
their next meeting our recommenda
tion that they officially prohibit the'
holding of public dances In tho city.
Wo believe that this action on the
part of the council is well Justified
as a pol leo measure to protect the
good name of the city and to pre
vont any possible disorder or un
wholesome features which might |
arise, and in order to avoid the repe- ;
tition of violent criticism, which at
tended tho gathering of the young
people of thc city and the visiting
students at the dance mentioned,
which was seriously and unjustly
detrimental to the reputation of
Greenwood as a moral community."
