Meeting of Trustees.
Founders' day at Newberry college
is February 4. The observance of the
day with appropriate exercises by the
studients of the college, was inaugu
rated a few years ago under the prasi
dency of Dr. J. A. B. Scherer, and the

Meeting of Trustees.
This is also the occasion of the
meeting of the board of trustees of the
college. The board met Friday morn
-ing and transacted business of im
portance. Resolutions of respect to
the memory of Rev. J. S. Elmore and
Col. 0. L. Schumpert, members of the
board who have died recently, were
-read by Rev. J. D. Kinard, secretary
of the board of trustees.
Petition for Football.
A matter of much interest to the
students was a petition on their part
to be* allowed to play football with
other colleges. It was signed by all
the students, and endorsed by the
Taculty. A year ago such a petition
would have been hopeless, but in view
of the great revision in the rules of
the game almost all of the danger
conneted with the game as formerly
played has been eliminated, while the
good features have been retained.
Definite action on the petition has
-been postponed until the meeting in
June. In connection with this subject
a company was appointed to report at
the next meeting on i.he eMiploying of
a gymnasium director for the college.
Want College Completely Coeduca
Pressure is being brought upon the
college to make it completely coedu
cational in character. At present the
college admits young lad.ies as day
students only. The board will deal
-wisely in this matter and a committee
was appointed to report on the ad
visability of this scheme at the next
The mem.bers of the board s~p '.t
some time in examining the buildings
and walking through the grounds of
the college. The-y exipressed them
selves as being pleased with the care
that is being 'taken'of the buildings,
grounds, and equi-pmrent of the col
lege. The facuiity of the college met
with the board ait dinner at the board
ing hall, and spent an hour of pleias
ant social intercourse together.
;Field Day Exercises.
Field day exercises by the students
of the college -were held in the after
nooyn on the college athletic field. The
president's banner for field contest
was awarded to the freshman class at
the exercises in HoH'a'nd hall on Fri
day evening with an appropriate ad
dress by Prof. S. J. Derrick. -The
urniior class was given second pla.ce
Sand the sophomore class third place
in the contest. The seniors did not
enter a team.
The highest individual score was
made by Jesse Mayes of the class of
1914; the second by J. B. Smeltzer,
of the class of 1912. The running high
jump record for the college was brok
en by L. M. Wise, of the clase of 1912.
The standing high jump record was
beaten by Jesse Mayes, of the class
MIr. Barre to Greenwood.
The exercises commemorating
Founders' day were hel-d in HolMand
hall Friday 'evening. President Harms
a.nnounced that Mr. Chas. P. Barre,
of Pros-perity, would enter the inter
collegiate oratorical conteist at Green
wood, and that Mr. Robert W. Houseal
had been appointed for alternate.
Dr. Miller. who delivered the Foun
ders' day address, is one of the most
scholarly metn of the Lutheran church
of the South, and his address on Fri
day evening was a most excellent and
eloquent tribute to the founders of
the college. He said that they should
be our ideals of great men because
they fulfilled the four requirements
men of great ability, men working
with a great unselfishness, men work
ing for great aims and men working
with great result. He said that Er.
John Bachman, one of the founders of
Newberry college, and for many years
a pastor of the Lutheran church of
Charleston, was preeminently such a
man. Dir. Bachman believed in Chris
tion education, and carrying out that
belief aient his efforts and energies to
the founding of a Christian college.
He also referred to Dr. D. K. Pear
sons as fulfilling the ideals of true
greatness-"great abdlity used wi2.h
great unselfishness, in pursuance of
great aims, bringing to pass great
results." Dr. Miller emphasized tae
importance of Christain education
which alone can produce such men.

MR. MAYES RETURNS.
South Carolinians Enthusiastically
Received at Big Corn Exposition
Mr. John B. Mayies returned to
Newberry yesterday morning from
Columbus, Ohio, whither be went as
the representative of the Newberry
chamber of commerce in the South
Carolina delegation to urge the claims
of this State for the next National
Corn expceition, held this year in
The South Carolina party numbered
twenty, traveling in a special car,
which left Columbia on the "Carolina
Special" on Wednesday afternoon
reaching Columbus on Thursday af
ternoon, and leaving Columbus Sat
urday afternoon on the homeward
trip, arriving in Columbia Saturday
afternoon. President A. D. Hudson,
of the South Atlantic States Corn ex
position, and Mr. Smith, of the gov
ernment demonstration department,
had preceded the party to Coblumbus.
Mr. Mayes speaks in gowing terms
of th, big corn show, and of the cor
dial and enthusiastic recePtion which
was given the South Carolina party
all along the trip and in Columbus.
The South Carolinians were accom
Wanied by Jerry Moore, the boy who
leaiped into national fame last. year
as the champion corn grower of the
world, and Jerry was the centre of
attraction of the South Carolina par
ty, and the South Carolina party was
the centre of attration at the corn
The delegaition went before Presi
dent Funk and the committee urging
that the next sihow be held in Colum
bia. Minnesota had a strong delega
tion which came for the show. The
exposition is of such dimensions that
the fair gounds in Columbia would
not be large enough to hold it, but the
deliegation promised that adequate
grounds would be provided. A com
mittee will 'be sent to Columbia to
investigate, and before the committee
comes the legislature or the city of
Columbia, working with the other
cities of the State, will have to >take
action conditioned upon the accep
tance of South Carolina's invitation.
The coming of this big show to
South Oarolina would be of untold
value to the State, and the delegation
which 'wnt ito Col'umbus is much en
couraged over South Oaroliina's
chances. There could be no doubt,
said Mr. Miayes, that the great crowd
was in sympathy with this State.
South Carolina badiges, which were
the hiandsomest on the grounds, were
in demand, and very few of the dele
gation were able to Ibrinbg their own
badges home with them.
The delegation bad their picture
taken with Governor Harmon, and
then Governor Harmon had his pic
ture taken with Jerry Moore. He said
he took great pleasure in meeting
Jierry-a boy who di:d something.
All along the route going to Co
'umbus the news of the coming of
South Carolina's party had been re
ceived, and the oar was besieged with
newspa.per reporters and photograph
In 'the South Carolina car was Mr.
Hayes, of North Carolina, a son of
President Hayes, who was sin enthus
iastic exponent of the advantages
which South Carolina had to offer the
exposition. Mr. M. V. Richards, land
and industrial agent of the Southern
railway, and Mr. TPhackston, also of
the Southern, went with the South
Carolinians before the committee, in
support of this State.
Mr. Mayes says that no words can
adequately describe the proportions
and the excellence of the big show in
WAhetner or' not South Carolina gets
the ne.v't show, the trip of the Suoth
Carolina delegation to Columbus will
be worth to this State many times
what is cost.
Mr. T. M. Smith was s;howing his
friends in Newberry yesterday twen
ty-one colts, being part of the forty
one head of stock he bought on a re
cent trip to Kentucky. The colts are
about eighteen ngonths of age, and are
about as fine specimens as are ever
seen here. Some of them, even at this
early age, are about fifteen and one
half hands high, and wil.l make big
fine mules. They made a pretty sight
in the pen. Mr. Smith also had a
fine young saddle mare less than
thre yar old which he brought bac:

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
NOW ON HOME STRETCH
LEGISLATURE EXPECTED TO AD
JOURN ON FEBRUARY 15.
[louse Has Made a Record on the Ap
propriation Bil-Partial Review
of the Session.
Columbia, Feb. 6.-The legislature
is not in session today, both houses
laving adjourned Saturday until
ruesday at noon to allow the mem
>ers to spend February salesday at
Four weeks of the session are gonie,
Ld the legislature is now on the
bome stretch. Indications now are
tat final adjournment may be reach
Ad on Februairy 15.
The general iassembly is progress
ng finely with its work. There has
iot been the slightest jar in the even
enor of the lbody. All 'has been
eaceful and contlebtmeht. There have
>een no ugly contests, no bitter feel
ng, no unecessary fighting, but on
he contrary all has gone along like
t May morn.
Marriage License Law.
Th'e most interesting measure that
Arill find its way on the statute books
Is -result of the week's work will be
he marriage license statute. Under
:he terms of ,the sot all parties wish
ng to marry after July 1 must secure
L marriage license. At the outset the
?enalty is to be imposed on the
>reacher or magistrate who performs
;he ceremony without the license hav
ng first been abtained.
After awhile, and when the law has
)een working for a while, the penalty
nay be attached. to the husband who
i4glects to secure the license, but it
vas thought best to make a start.
Compulsory Education and Liquor.
Strange as it may seem there has
.ot been suggested during .the present
session a bill looking towards com
;ulsory education, nor one looking to
state-wide prohibition, or in fact any
naterial change in the liquor ques
on. Both of these issues, that i-n
revious years have been the topic for
ong and spirited discussions, have
>een entirely and absolutely over
ooked and no single proposition look
ng to a 'material change has been
3roposed, unless it be the Fultz meas
ire on the liquor quiestion, which does
lot propose direct l-egislation, bat
-ather a referendum.
The fact of ~the matter is that the
bpensar'yhasan otibeenmentioned, ex
sept in the Stev'enson 'bill, which
;eeks to, provide a p-lan for 'the distri
>ution of the salvage from the old dis
>ensary system and the general desire
s to have the fund expended and to be
u.re that. there is not another year's
lelay in getting the money dis'tribut
The Tax Question.
There does not appear to be any
lisposition to seriously undertake a
revision of the tax system of the
state. All apparently admit that the
tppraisemnnts are out of whack, but
here is evidently no mature effort to
'emedy what is <recognized as a se
'ious evil. On the senate side there
s 'a bill to provide a tax com.mission
hat will not pass. On the house side
here is no general proposition.
Gen. James has a bilH pending
hich seeks to place the bank assess
nents under the charge of the State
>oard of .equalization and take these
natters out of the 'hands of the county
yoards, sas is the present law. There
s another more extreme bill, which
eeks to have the attorney general
Lttack the charters of banks that are
uppose.d to 'have been underassessed.
Tread Lightly, Its Asleep.
T'he indications a week ago were
hat the educational bill, proposed by
he special commission, would be en
cted. The outlook now is that it is
eing chloroformed. In 'legislation
here are many ways o.f killing a
neasure without havin.g a knockdown
nd drag out fight, and the outlook is
:hat the commission bill is going to
rest quietly on the calendar of both
he house and senate without any for
nal action one way or a,nother.
The house has made a record on
bie general appropriation bill. This
d important measure is now in the
ands of the senate, having received
:ts final house reading yesterday, ten
lays prior to the date generally
igreed upon for final adjournment.
