TEXTBOOK CONTRACTS AWARDED
Work of Adoption Completed by Edu
cation Board-Radical Changes
Columbia, June 22.-The verdict in
adoption of the school books of the
State was rendered this evening. There
was a radical change in the list. Su
perintendent Swearingen protested
against what he terms too sweeping
and unneessary changes, but he was
in a minority.
The books adopted are these used in
five thousand free schools in the State,
but do not niecessarily apply to the
graded school districts that have their
For the past five years the State de
pository, R. L. Bryan company, man
agers, handled $508,243 worth of
school books on the list in use during
the five years. The present list will
result in as many sales.
This afternoon Superintendent
Swearingen had the verdict read to
the assemb'ed agents of the p:blish

Personnel of Board.
The board that adopted the serie
of text books was appointed by Gov
<:fnor Ansel, and retained by Gover
nor Blease. The board is constitute<
ed as follows: First district, D. M
O'Driscoll, principal Bennett school
Charleston; second district, H. F
Rice, attorney at law, Aiken; thir<
district, D. W. Daniel, professor o:
English, Clemson college; fourth dis
trict, A. G. Rembert, profelssor o:
Greek, Wofford college, Spartanburg;
fifth district, J. L. Glenn, attorney a
law, Chester; sixth district, Nathax
Toms, superintendent of city schools
Darlington; seventh district, A. J
Thackston, superintendent of cit3
schools, Orangeburg. Governor BleasE
and Superintendent Swearingen arE
ex officio members of the board. It i.
stated that there is no record vote o
the preference of each member, the
secretary being directed not to record
the motions or records of votes. At
exceedingly liberal provision wac
made as to the exchange of old books
The agreement is that children may
exchange books on the same subject
although not necessarily in the same
grade, with a cash difference. ThE
adoption will be in effect for fivi
years. Superintendent Swearingen an
nounced that he would be ready to
make the contracts as agreed upon in
Book Adoption Echoes.
Columbia, June 22.-Although Col.
Waddy Thompson's history, the re
cent casus belli, was adopted by the
State board of education, it was with
the understanding, as stated by Gov.
Blease tonight, that a sentence be in
serted stating that Sherman's army
burnt Columbia. That this direct
statement be made was, according to
the chairman of the board, the condi
tion upon which the book was adopt
Governor Blease's objection to Col.
Thompson's history was that it did not
make the direct statement placing the
responsibility for the burning of Co
The board is to receive the reply
from Mr. Thompson about the inser
tion of this sentence. Governor Blease
will not sign the contract, he stated
this afternoon, unless this feature is
provided for. In other respects, Gov
ernor Blease did not have objection
to the book.
It is learned that one of the arith
metics rejected had this problem in it:
"Of all the cotton goods produced
in the United States, about one-third
was made in Massachusetts, one
eleventh in South Carolina, one-four
teenth in Pennsylvania, one-nine
teenth in Georgia, one-thirteenth in
IRhode Is-land, one-twentieth in Con
.ecticut, one-twelfVh in North Caro
lina and one-fifteenth in New Hamp
shire. Arrange the names of these
States in order ~according 1o a'nount
of cotton goods produced."
This is taken to be a somewhat pre
judiced statement against South Caro
It is learned that the selection of
geographies created considerable dis
cussion; finally Baury's won out over
Frye's by a vote of 5 to 4.
