"Editor Robert Lathan of the Char

rieht in requiring that Leon M.
Green, Columbia correspondent of

The News and Courier. Mr. Green's
position as a "Colonel" on the gov

vr.der obligations to Blease, and in

What Is an Ad Club.
The Augusta Herald defines an ad
club to be an organization of the
advertising and sales managers of
firms] located in any community.
They may be retailers, wholesalers,
manufacturers, real estate men,
printers, publishers; in fact, any one
who is interested in the disposal of
any commodity or product. It means
getting together and rubbing elbows
with the other fellow. Views are
exchanged on important topics that
man concern every firm ptrsonally,
or the community at large.
In other cities these clubs have
proven immensely beneficial to the
merchants and community at large,
spreading a knowledge of the com
munity's resources and benefitting in
various ways. Orangeburg is getting
more and more in the limelight. Ad
vertising in Orangeburg is getting to
be more and more a necessity and
every day doing in the life of
the community. Incidentally, it is
costing more to do .business in Or
angeburg as the city grows. Real
estate ' values are increasing, rents
are higher, clerks cost more, and
there must come an increasing expan
pansion of the volume of trade to
meet these expenses.
There never was a time when the
city as a community should adver
tise more and advertise better. And
the same thing is true of each and
every line of business in Orange
burg. The demand of the times is
for more advertising and better au
vertlsing. The problem of business
Is to reach more people, more quick
ly and more effectively than ever
before, for the.slogan of every enter
prising city and merchant is more
business and better business. Ad
clubs are big he!p3 In studying and
solving the problems of cities and
modern merchandizing these days.
"Thousands of dollars are wasted
in advertising," says Mr. |McXeand,
Secretary of the Charleston Chamber
of Commerce," and much of this
waste Is due to a lack of knowledge
of the principles governing the
science of advertising. It is to study
this science and eliminate unneces
sary waste that advertising clubs
have been formed in hundred of pro
gressive coimraunlties. More money
is wasted on so-called advertising
than any other one thing. At the
same time, greater results are reap
ed from good advertising than from
any other source. The national ad
vertisers and the mail order houses
will come into a community and
create new business right under the
nose of the local merchants. That's
because they have studied advertis
ing and know what they are doing.
The only way to successfully combat
the enemy is to meet him with his

any other body, just what the

National Corn Show.
The announcement made by Mr.
A. 'McP. Hamby, which is published
in another column, that It has been
decided to hold the next National
Corn Exposition In Columbia pro
vided certain conditions are met Is
of the greatest Importance to the
whole State. The News and Courier
says "the magnitude of the Exposi
tion is indicated in the fact that if
is proposed to spend some twenty
months in the work of preparation
for it, during which period at least a
thousand dollars a month will be ex
In order to provide a building cap
able of housing the Exposition the
city of Columbia has already pledged
$25,000, with which there wil] be
erected on the Fair Grounds at the
State Capital a structure that will
have a seating capacity of 35,000
people It will take in addition to
the $25,000 pledge by Columbia,
$40,000 to finance the proposition.
Of this $40.000. $3.500 has been
guaranteed by citizens of Columbia,
$5,000 by one of the railroads operat
ing in South Carolina and $2,000 by
the city of Charleston. This will
leave in round numbers $30,000 still
to be raised.
The people of South Carolina will
be asked to pledge this amount and
we do not for a moment doubt their
doing so. As the News and Cour
ier says, "it is a big enterprise, but
it promises big returns, not only in
the way of advertising of the most
jdesirable type throughout a wide
territory and over a long period of
time, but also in other ways, one
or two of which have already been
hinted at and others of which the
gentlemen In charge of the under
taking will no doubt lay before the
people in due season." The bene
fits of the Exposition can hardly be
Some of these benefits, as nointed
out by The News and Courier, are
that "the exhibi.ion and other at
tendant features will constitute a lib
eral education to the agriculturist,
while there is also a very practical
side to be considered, namely, the
bringing to South Carolina of at
least a thousand farmers from the
middle West, who will represent in
themselves some $30,000,000 o
copitai and who cannot fall to be
interested in a country possessing
such magnificent opportunities for
development and the advantages of
which as a corn producing region
have been so amply demonstrated
and widely advertised during the
last few years."
