THOSE ABLE TO PAY,
The Herald and News of Newberry,
which is generally sound on matters
pertaining to education, advocates
the abolition of tuition charges in all
State colleges mainly on the ground
that "It.is not only an evil, but it
offers an inducement to many people
to make false statements as to their
financial ability in order to save the
pitiable tuition that they have to pay
for their boy or girl entering college."
The editor also advocates the abolition
of free scholarships practically for the
same reason. We take issue with our
contemparary. Those who are able
to pay tuition for their children should
be made to do so. If, as The Herald
and News says, parents make false
statements to get their children in
Clemson, they perpetrate a serious
offense and can be punished for perjury.
We have heard the same complaint
made at to Winthrop college. It
is said that each year many girls are
given free tuition at that institution
whose parents are abundantly able to
pay for it, but who have sworn falsely
in order to get the benefit of something
like $40 or $50 in the way of
free tuition. There is a way to correct
this outrage and it should be done at
^ n A- 11 1 !
once, uur recouecuon ui me iaw is
that besides the sworn statement of
the parent or guardian, the county auditor
furnishes a certificate showing j
the kind and value of all property j
owned by the applicants' parents. But
if the present law falls short of cor-1
recting this evil it should be amended
so as to correct it.?Lancaster Xews.
The propostioin here discussed'is to
say the least, important, and the matter
is badly in need of more equitable
regulation. We are not prepared to
agree to the amendment of free
scholarships, because we consider the
principle of especial value as a means
of bestowing honor where honor is
properly due; but we do not see a
great dtal of justice in the practical 1
operation of the free tuition principle 1
under present regulations. General ;
disregard of the law that undertakes ,
to give free tuition only in cases where I'
parents are unable to pay, is common, '
and loo'rring at conditions as they exist
rather than as we would like to j
have them, wo do not see how the sit- i
uation could be well straightened out. I ^
The man who pays the most taxes for
education is entitled to most of the !
benefits. At least that is the case with (
the average man. He is wrjng, of 1
course; but unhappily there is no ade- i
quate method of convincing him, and
when it comes to a matter of getting
free tuition or anything else free from
; the State, too many people forget all
about the moral obligation involved,
i The best way around it, we think, is
that suggested by The Herald and i
News. It might be just a little heavier
on the taxpayers; but for all that is
lost there, the gain in general selfrespect
would be more than sufficient
to make it up.?Yorkville Enquirer.
If the Lancaster News would take
the trouble to look up the records of
Winthrbp and C-lemson colleges, it
will find out of th^ seven or eight
hundred boys and girls at each insti
muon uiat less man one nunareu m
each pay tuition. We have not looked
into the matter very recently, but
we recall very distinctly that a few
years ago when tnere wen? ab'mt six
hundred girls at Winthrop about 90
jaid tuition and with more than six
of OlftmcAw rw* 1 TT o V\ rm +
xiuuui^u v\jj o u l. vicaiouu \jlllv auuui
50 paid tuition. With this small number
paying tuition, we have been of
the opinion that free tuition should be
given to them. It shows one or two
things; that most of the boys and
girls at these two colleges are from
families who are unable to pay tuition,
or that a great many of them
are making the statement required in |
order to avoid the payment. In
either event, it is significant that it
would be better if tuition were made
1 free in all the State institutions.
In regard to scholarships, of course,
it sometimes happens that they go to
young men and women who really
need them and without this aid would
have some difficulty in securing a college
education, but in a great many
cases, the ones that need the aid most
are the ones that fail in the examinations,
and others whose parents are
able to pay for the education of their
children get the benefit of these scholarships.
Our views on this subject, we know,
are different from those of a great
;nany.people, but with the small per- centage
of boys and girls of South
Carolina who can go to college, we
take the position that when a State
furnishes higher institutions with free
tuition it has gone far enough in the j
way of higher education and that its j
money otherwise appropriated should :
be sriven to the common schools, where I
more than 95 per cent of the children j[
end their education. And besides that, jj
we desire to repeat what we have said
a number of times before, that we do
not believe there is a boy or girl in
South Carolina who is prepared to
enter the Freshman class of any firstclass
college and has the capacity to
take a higher education who could
not secure it if he or she was sufficiently
interested to obtain it.
We understand that the Citadel is j
maintained almost entirely by appro- j
priations which are made for scholarships
and we would not take the appropriations
aw.ny from the Citadel,
but would require the boys who went
there to pay "Mr own living expenses i
and give them > je tuition.
We notice that Hearst's Sunday
American is going to wage a good j
roads campaign and will map out a |
national highway from coast to coast, j
There is no greater work in which j
any one could engage than the bnild- j
ing of good roads. The first thing
to do is to create the good roads spirit
among the people and there is no
greater agency in this work than the
great and the small newspapers of
the country. Just keep on hammering
the thing into the ears of the
readers and after awhile they will
get the spirit. Mr. Hearst has the !
monev and can do a great work for j
the country in creating the good roads
spirit. The coast to coast route is to
be entirely southern.
It is hoped that the governor will .
give us an enthusiastic road builder
when he names the new supervisor to
succeed Postmaster Hill. This county
in all its history never needed good
roads like it does today. When we
?et a system to build them there must ]
De inaugurated at the same time a system
of maintenance. There is no
?ood business sense in building a good '
road, such as we had from Newberry
:o Prosperity, and then permit it to
?et in the condition this road is to3ay
simply caused by neglect. A sys- ,
tem of maintenance that will cover
the entire county is what we need.
One of the best and strongest addresses
at the conference for the common
good last week was thai of
President H. X. Snyder, of Wofford
college, on "The Majesty of the Law."
We want to quote with our endorsement
the following sentence from his
address: "The stand of the ages is
on the majesty of law and it is the
corner-stone of all of our liberties. It
is impaired by too much special legislation,
by too much delay in executing
the laws, mandates, and the apparent
slowness c,. the courts; in dealing
out justice, an apparent feeling
that some can get more ol ttie resources
of the law than others."
The Herald and News has many
times called attention to the evil of
special legislation and changes of our
laws so frequently.
Death of 3Irs. Caroline Cook.
On the eve of July 7th, 1913, the
spirit of Mrs. Caroline Cook was
called to a fairer and better land.
Mrs. Cook was 81 years 1 month 29
days old, and is survived by three
daughters: Mesdames, Sallie Wicker;
T. F., and T. P. Wicker; two sons:
Messrs. D. B., and E. M. Cook, eleven
grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs.
Elvira Kibler and Miss Esther Moore,
and many sorrowing friends to
mourn her departure.
Mrs. Cook will be sadly missed by
all who knew her, far to know her
was to love her.
She is dead, but the impress of
her life will long be felt in the community
in which she lived. May her
children never waver in their determination
to meet their sainted mother
In Heaven, and let them feel that their
irraparable loss is her eternal gain.
Mrs. Cook had been in declining
health for some time, but she bore
it all without a murmur, all that loving
hands could do, was done, but the
Lord saw fit to call her to a higher
and Heavenly home above.
We grieve deeply, but not without
hope of a happy reunion in a fairer
