The governor made the response
for South Carolina today at the riv
ers and harbors convention.
"What is it that the kovernor of
North Carolina said to the governor
of South Carolina?'' he said and
the expectant crowd leaned over for
the reply. He said, "Let us have

round as a barrel and just that shape,

they followed the young man for a

strange stone'?" he asked.

twinkle coming into his eyes. "Waal,
