CONDITIONS AT CLEMSON.
We tfrint in another column a review
of conditions at Clemson college
by Superintendent of Education J. E.
Swearingen. We refer to it mainly to
call attention to a recommendation,
or rather a suggestion, made by Mr.
Swearingeii. that the matter of charging
tuition in State colleges is an evil
common to al1 of them and should be
We agree entirely with this suggestion,
and six or eight years ago when
thp pditor of The Herald and News
was a member of the legislature, he
offered a bill abolishing tuition charges
in all States colleges. It is not
only an evil, but it offers an inducement
to many people to make false
statements as to their financial abil
ity in order to save the pitiaDie tuition
that they have to pay for their
bov or girl entering college. The tuition
charge is $40.00 a year and from
the S34 cadets at Clemson, the t^tal
collection last year was only $5,050.
We believe also that scholarships
provided by the State should be azolyoung
men and women who really are
? ?"'imnn ivhn rPnllv fl TP
\Oung men miu ?> umcu i
able to educate themselves, or whose
parents are able to pay for their education.
We believe that the State
should maintain all her higher institutions
of learning and say to every
boy and girl in South Carolina that
here are these institutions, free to all
of you who are prepared to enter,
and we believe we could safely make
thP assertion that any boy or girl in
South Carolina, who is prepared toj
enter the Freshman class and has I
the capacity and ambition to take a
higher education, could find a way.
AS TO ROADS.
It is with no intention to criticise
anybody, but with the hope tnat we j
may wake up the proper officials and
the people of the county, that we call
attention to the fact that one traversing
the roads in the upper portion
of his State will be forced to the conclusion
that the roads of Xewberry
county do not compare favorably with
the roads of the otner counties betM-oon
hprp and Greenville, along
either route which may be chosen.
There is a wonderful development
going forward in the upper section of
South Carolina, and there is little
doubt that it was made possible in
the beginning by the improvement of
IliC ? -i v .
One of Newberry county's greatest
needs is better roads, and when the
people of Newberry county wake up
to a realization of this great need
they are going to demand better
roads, and when they demaL'l them
they will have them.

The News and Courier and the
Florence Times have advanced ab-!
surd propositions in connection with
the course of Governor Elease in the
military matter. We are not surprised
at the absurdity of the position
taken by the Times. We are rather
surprised at the attitude of the News
In an editorial reproduced in the
Yotvc nnrl fnnripr. the Florence Times
"Every little bit helps and Adjutant
General Moore is doing his share to*
wards boosting Blease into the senate."
Of course everybody knows that Adjutant
General Moore's mistakes
could not boost anybody into office.
Why not come out like a man and acknowledge
that the course of the gov~

the governor to recover himself
from the highly embarrassing position ;
in which he was left when his corres-'

of the News and Courier.
As matter of fact, the position taken
by the governor has saved one
third of the militia organization of
South Carolina, in that portion of the
State where the militia is really needed,

in a dictated statement in which he
excoriated Governor Cole. L. Blease. (
"I take this opportunity of denouinc- ;

false," asid the adjutant general, in

of the extra pay. Gen. Moore says e

terview carried in The News and j
Courier and several other daily pa- i
pers of July 27, in which he states ;
that I had special orders No. 60 is- I
sued in order that I might draw pay I
on these encampments, I have pre-1
viously denied this charge and by way i
of explanation stated that I had told '
Col. Babb, the disbursing officer for j
South Carolina, who called my atten-:
tion to the provision contained in circular
No. 2, which allowed the adjutant
general pay during State en
campments for 1913, that I could not
conscientiously accept this pay because
of the shortage of funds belonging
to the National Guard of this
State. This conversation with Col.
Babb took place some ten days or two
weeks before the encampment and I
also had a conversation with former '
Adjt. Gen. John D. Frost, covering |
this same subject aind made the same I
statement to him, together with
Major R. Boyd Cole, of the 3d infantry,
and several officers of this regiment
at the beginning of camp at
Aiken, S. C., all of which was previous
to the criticisms made by Governor
Blease, covering the purport of
special orders No. 60. I will, as soon
as I can get them prepared, furnish
affidavits substantiating the above
conversations had with these officers,
which I am sure will conclusively
contradict his contentions to all fair
thinking people, and, as far as he is
concerned, I take this opportunity of
denou/ncing his statement tnat i intended
