A friend informs this newspaper
.that on a certain subject we are
"right.' Of course, we are right.
We are always right. We make a
specialty of being right. It is our
-business to be right. We can br3
right without the least difficul.ty. It
-comes natural for us te ',e right. We
are right on all su.bjects. We make
a study of beifg right. We are al
ways sure we are right before we
take a stand on anything. If you
want to be certain of being right.
just follow us.-Spartanburg Jour
We believe in the man who be

is the business of every n-wspiper
to be right and to.make a study of
the questions discussed. But the mot

gerous to any community to have
any human beings who p)ersuade

The income at Clemson from the
privilege tax has nearly doubled
in five years and the 1board is still
busy trying to devise ways and
means to spend it. If a part of the t
increase in the income had been s-et <
apart each year as~a permanent en
dowment a pretty good endowment '
could have been secured by this time.1
The policy of the boar-d, however,
seems to be- to spend the income as t
fast as it is realized.
