WOULD KEEF CLEMSON
OUT OF NEWSPAPERS
Mr. W. W. Dixon of Winnsboro
Thinks Press Controversy About
Discipline Bad for Institution.
To the Editor of the State.
Is there no earthly way that we
can be relieved of the agony of the
discussion of Clemson's affairs at this
juncture in the public print. I think
all of it injurious and out of order.
Capt. Minus knows enough about mil
itary science and ethics to have con
tented himself with a dignified resig
nation and silence, submitting his
grievances for redress to .h.is superiors
And loving the State, as he does, he.
should have made a personal sacrifice
of his feelings for the good of the
college just at this time. There is
enough fairness in the board to do
justice finally between him and the
head of the institution. The presi
dent of Clemson was precipitate in
his defense and any statement which
he may have had to make in reply to
Capt. Minus should have been made
to the trustees. More than all, if
there 'has been no investigation of the
points in the controversy now being
waged in the columns of the press it
is very injudicious and hurtful for
the trustees to jump into the newspa
pers, prejudicing and trying the case
for the public before a thorough and
painstaking investigation which they
say they have not (had.
I commend the attitude of Col. Alan
Johnstone. the president of the
board. He has been interviewed and
has nothing for publication. Such
silence at such times is truly golden.
W. W. Dixon.
