COLLEGE OPENS THIS WEEK.
Formal Opening Exercises Will be
Held in Holland Hall on Thurs
The vacation season at Newberry
college has come to a close and this
week will be the scene of much acti
vity on the college campus. Students
are beginning to arrive and by Thurs
day morning it is expected that col
lege hill will be alive with them. The
first student to arrive was W. H. Dut
ton, of North Carolina. Bob Wilson
was the next to turn up. They are the
harbingers of the season of college ac
tivity. Tuesday and Wednesday will
be given over to examinations for en
trance on the part of the new students
and working off of conditions on the
part of the old students. The schedule
of examination was posted on the bul
letin board at the college on Monday.
Besides the new and conditional stu
dents who are reporting, there will be
a large committee of old students on
the ground to welcome the new boys
and to help them get settled. President
Roberts, of the Y. M. C. A. will be on
hand as the head of this committee.
The formal opening exercises of the
session will be held Thursday morn
ing in Holland hall at 8.45 o'clock. This
is always an event not only for the
college but for the people of this com
munity and President Harms will be
glad to have the town people attend.
These formal opening exercises have
been held every year since the relo
cation of the college at Newberry, cov
ering a period of 33 years. It has
been customary at these occasions for
the pastors of the various churches of
the city to be present and to extend
a word of greeting and welcome to
the student body. Chief Justice Pope,
who has been a member of the board
during all these years, has always
been on hand also, and it is hoped
that he will be able to attend this
year. Another who has not missed
any of these occasions since the relo
cation of the college at Newberry, was
Dr. E. P. McClintock, but he will not
be present this year as during the year
h( has passed away. The pastors of
the town, however, will be expected to
atend and to make brief remarks. Col.
W. H. Hunt has been invited and has
accepted the invitation to make the
principal address to the students on
Thursday morning. President Harms
will also make brief remarks. It is
expected that the standing committee
of the college will also be present.
The exercises promise to prove an en
thusiastic send off to the college for

LITTLE ROCK CONVENTION.
Two Newberry Carriers Attended Na
tional Meeting of the R.F. D. Let
ter Carriers Last Week.
Mr. Frank P. Devore has returned
from the National Rural Letters Car
riers' convention, held in Little Rock.
Newberry had two delegates to this
convention, the other being State
President Thos. E. Wicker, who has
not yet returned to Newberry on ac
)unt of having taken an excursion
trip to Hot Springs. Mr. Devore is
enthusiastic over the entertainment
given by Little Rock. Mr. Wicker had
been mentioned prominently as a pos
sibility for president of the national
association, but when there was a
successful fight to cut down the salf
of the president from $500 to $200
per year and to curtail his expense ac
count to one trip to Washington per
year, it was figured out by the South
Carolina contingent and the support
ers of Mr. Wicker that It would take a
rich man to hold down the job, and Mr.
Wicker's name was not presented. At
the recent State convention of the car
riers held In Newberry Fourth Assis
tant Postmaster General DeGraw said
that, while he could not mingle In the
routine affairs of the organization of
the carriers, that he knew Mr. Wicker
personally and that it would be highs
ly gratifying to him to see him at the
head of the national organization. The
other delegates from South Carolina,
in addition to Messrs. DeVore and
Wicker, were: S. A. Burch, Florence,
memnber of State executive commitee;
Paul K. Crosby, Ruffin, secretary of
the State association and who is a
member of the national committee on,
resolutions, and Miss Florence Living

proposition up to him yesterday morn
ing. He had before him a white man,
one D. B. Thompson, for drunk and
disorderly and also for keeping and
storing contraband liquor in the town
of Newberry. The mayor fined the
man $50 for the first and $100 for the
second offense, but the sentence is
suspended until 10 O'clock tomorrow
morning on condition that Thompson
leave town and not return, as his re
putation has been reported to Mayor

as being so bad that Thompson is not
a desirable citizen for any community.

Adams worked up the case. Thomp
son had been here about three months.
He and his wife and daughter were
running a restaurant and little store

progress of the South in agriculture,
mining, manufacturing and commer

cluded in the Appalachian territory is
South Carolina, and one of the arms
of great importance is "the promotion
of thA Appalachian nati.onal park, to
be situated so as to include portions
of Tennessee, North andl South Caro

position. "The grounds are located
three and one-half miles north of
