E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Tuesday, December 31, 1912.
The Herald and News wishes all of
its readtrs a happy and prosperous
After these rains, the split log dragj
would be of great advantage to many
of the roads in the county.
We would lite to suggest to President
Kinard of the chamber of commerce,
that he. call a meeting of this
organization early in the New Year,
and endeavor to get all of its members
around the same board, with their feet
under the same table.
Such a gathering would help very
materially in bringing about good fellowship,
and, we believe, would amount
10 much during the year 1913, for both j
the city and county of Xewberrv.
We would like to know if anything
has been done along the suggestion of
The Herald and News sometime ago
looking to the employment of an expert
for Newberry county to co-operate
with the farmers of the county
along the lines of work undertaken in
Greenville county. We understand that
by raising $1,000 a year for two years
we can secure a similar amount from
a company in Chicago, and also have
the co-operation, of Clemson college
and the federal department of agriculture.
If work of this character were I
taken up by the chamber of commerce,
it would demonstrate to the people of
the county and the city, that the chamber
of commerce was a real live fac
tor in the development of the community.
Why not do something and verify
the slogan of The Herald and News,
suggested sometime for Newberry
county?that it does things.
We would be glad to see the automobile
owners of Newberry county organize
an association and co-operate |
with the county supervisor, in the
working of the road from Kinards to !
Little Mountain, and thus give us aj
good road across the county or com-;
plete the link from Laurens to Lex-1
ington of the capital to county high- j
It would require very little effort1
and very little expense, and with the I
effort and expense on the co-operative
plan, so to speak, it would cost but
little.. It would not only be a greatsconvenience,
but a great comfort to f
the traveling public, and it would be/
an encouragement for travel from Co- '<
lumbia to Greenville. We believe it '
would be very easy to secure the co-^
operation of the people who live along v
the line, and the road bed is now in
such condition, that the. cost of maintenance
would be very small.
We would be glad to see someone j'
take the initiative, and we are sure
that it would be very easy to securei
the co-operation of the automobile l
owners in the county.
HIT THE NAIL IN THE HEAD.
Discussing a law for compulsory <
education, which Gov.'Blease has de-?
clared he would veto, The Herald and
News, Newberry, declares that "com-;
pulsory education may not be the so- ;
lution" and then that "we may not be i
ready for compulsory education;" but
it goes on record, "it" the parents will
not see that their children, are educated
then the State should step in and
say they shall be." Why does not The
Herald and News come out squarely ;
and say that Gov. Blease is wrong,
rather than dance all around the bush?
If "the State should step in and say
they shall be" forced to go to school,
then Gov. Blease's views are diametri
cally opposed to those of The Herald:
and News. Own up!?I^aurens Advertiser.
If the Advertiser would read The i
Herald and News it would not ask the
question. The Herald and News has
long been an advocate of compulsory
education. The editor, while a member
of the legislature, introduced a1
bill at two separate sessions carrying
out the idea of compulsory education,
and advocated it as strongly as he
The Herald and News never "dances
:.:u\ ;" 1 i,;i 1." on any qu.'siion. an.l *
certainly on this question. there has
bs en no dancing around the bush.
The rural school problem is one of
of the most important problems before
the people today. As we stated,
eve do not know that compulsory education
would solve the problem, but ii
would help very materially in doing si
The most important work at pres-j
ent is to get the people to see the condition
of the rural schools, and then it
would be possible to do something for
the betterment of the schools.
