A few days ago a young mother
carno to a friend ia town and said:
"The doctors tell nie that I have an
advanced caso of tuberculosis and
should go to a sanitorium. I have
been sick a long time. Won't you
help me? Won't you write to a hos
pital for me?" She seemed to think
that she had practically no chanco of
getting well, and said, "1 would not
mind so much if il was not for leav
ing my little children, lt is so hard
to leave them. 1 don't know what
they will do." Thou she began to
cry. for she knew that soon she must
tell them bood-diyo forever. Her
friond has boen trying to got a place
for her to go. but every place seems
to be tilled.
There are sixteen thousand active
cases of tuberculosis in South Caro
lina needing immediate treatment,
and only one hundred and nixty beds
1o take care of them. Two thousand
lives are being wast ?nt [\\ south Car
olina by this disease annually, the
funerals alone costing $100,000. Tu
berculosis is the cause of one out of
? every eight deaths, and, disregarding
tho untold sorrow and suffering, it
costs the State an annual economic
loss of live millions of dollars.
The Ked Cross is trying to help
out in this situation They are pro
viding bods, helping lo build s.ini
toriums when? tuberculosis patients
can i; o for treat mont. They are em
ploying nurses, who hold free din
ics. They have nurses in eight of
the counties in our State, trying to
save Ute lives of many from the rav
ages of tins plague.

demand that wo change our present

As a safe program for farming

would suggest 20 acres to tho

Six acron to cotton, followed by
small grain in tho fall.
Six acres to corn, wi til velvet
beans and peas planted in com.
Six acres to small grain-two
acres each to wheat, oats and rye.
Two acres to truck crops, con
