The association will have headquarters at the Ottaray Hotel, one

the assembly hall of the hotel has been tendered the Association in
which to hold tihe sessions.
At the banquet several invi-ted guests will 'deliver speeches. -The
full program will be announced later. Acceptance has been receiv
ed from Hon. Lucian L. Knight, editor of the Atlanta Georgian,
who will speak to the toast, *"South Carolina and Georgia.''
Mr. Frank L. Stanton, "Just From Georgia,'' was extended an
invitation to be with us. He promised to come if he could and we
are expecting him to attend the banquet on the 8th.
It is important that the President should know as early as possi
ble how many expect to attend this convention, and it is hoped that
every newspaper published in South Carolina/1will have one or more
If you desire transportation for any one connected with your pa
per who is a member of the Association or for any member of his
fa.nily, please advise the President at Newberry, S. C., at once.
THE SIDE TIP.
I have made arrangements to take the side trip whieh has been
announced but in order to do so and have everything go off pleas
antlv it is very important that you let me know at once whether
you will take this trip or not.
It is proposed to leave Greenville on T'hursday night at one
o'clock and go from there to Atlanta. spending Friday and Friday
niaht in Atlanta returning from Atlanta on Saturday and stopping
at Tallulah Falls over Saturday night and Sunday and Sunday'
night returning to Greenville Monday afternoon in time to make
trains coming South.
I will not complete the arrangemend4s, however, unless I am satis
fied that at least 25 members of the Association indicate a desire
to take this trip.
The cost of the trip will be about as follows: Railroad fare
Greenville to Tallulah Falls via Atlanta and back to Greenville,
$7.26: hotel. Atlanta. European plan $1.50: hotel at Tallulah Falls,
American plan, $3.50.
You will see from this statement that the total actual expense of
the t.rip will be in the neighborhood of $15.00.
Tallulah Falls is considered the Niagara of the.South. Tihe scen
erv is beautiful. "A very healthful and invigorating climate, the
land of health. pleasure, and rest, where blackberries, huckleberries
and fried chicken abound."
If there were as many as 50 who desired to take the trip and I
could get the information at once I could secure a special train, but
I think tihe regular schedules will answer and the railroads will fur
nish a special coach. Of course, those who desire a Pullman from
Greenville to Atlanta will have to pay $2.00 extra.
I must know not later than the 15th of this month whether or not
the trip will be taken so that the railroads will have time in which
to make the necessary traffic arrangements.
Write to the President at Newberry. S. C.. at once.

Teachers to Cooperate With Forest
Service in Tree Study.
Teachers throughout the country
have been invited by the United
States forester to cooperate -with the
forest service in an effort to obtain
more definite knowledge of the char
aeteristies of the most important for
est trees of the United States. To
do this it will be necessary to obtain
a large number of volunteer observ
ers who will collect material on the
time of leafing, blossoming. and fruit
ing of the various kinds of forest
trees. In his letter the cooperation
of the teachers. Forester Pinehot
SKnowledge of this kind is greatly
needed and will be of value from lic
staindIoint bot: of education and (if
practi-al forestry. F1r eVdatioiial
pIurposes tie resultih; obtained for each
species. averaged and presented gra
phically by means of colored eharts,
will be available to all who are inter
ested in the subject, and particularly
to schools. They will form virtual
"tree calendars.' and will be valia
ble aids to nature study.
"Children can readily be interest
ed in the actual work of obtaining
records. This should form an attrac
tive outdoor feature of the school
wvork that should serve to develop the
faculty of accurate observation, and
at the same time'to promote an inter
est in forestry whiich may lead to a
better appreciation of its aims and
methods. It may also prove to be a
profitable additon to botany courses
for older students.
"'A study of this kind will be of
great value to pirae.tical forestry, since
the proper treatm.ent of forests de
pends partly upon a knewlodge of
these eharacteristies of trees. For
example, the time of'year at which a
tree leafs out and blossoms is one of
the indications as to whether or not
it is frost-hardy in a given region,
and the length of time that a tree is
in leaf influences the growt'h it is
able to make ~during the season.
Knowledge of the time when seede of
each species ripen in various locali
ties is of great value to those who are
collecting .seed. since seed. often de
teriorates or is eaten by squirrels and
birds if; not gathered and stored as
soon as nape.
''Another result of this study will
be a more intimate knowledge of cli
mate as manifested by plant growth,
for~j differences in climate are showa
by plant life as well as by instru
ments. and a preliminarv idea can
thus be gained as to whether a given
region is suited to a valuable tree
which it is desired to inltrodluce there.
Many suchI examples could be given,
but sufficient has been said to show
that the results of these observa'tions
will be a real help to practical fores
try, in addition to their general inter
est and educational value. Volun
reers will latell be supplied with pub
lications and charts containinz the in
formatIon they help to gather, as a
return for the services rendered. ''
On request. th:e forest service will
be glad to sendl forms upon which to
record data and a pamphlet contain
ing full instructions as to the nature
of t he observations and how they are
to be made.
According to a report of the United
States census, it is stated that the
mortality of the Indians from tuber
eulosis is undoubtedly far higher
than that of either the whites or the
negroes, although it is believed by
careful investigators that the disease
was entirely absent before the advent
of the whites in America.
The most prominent tuberculosis
specialists in the country agree that
alcohol will not eure consumption.
