Mr. Underwood's nomination termi-J
nate<? one o: the most spectacular po-1
litical congests in the history of taei
State. With the exception of a whirlwind
speakinf tour during the Christmas
holidays the successful candi- j
dstp'^ f?amr>nisrn was conducted bv his!
friends. One of the chief claims for
recognition for tneir candidate ad-!
vanced by Mr. Underwood's -friends
was the charge that Representative
Hobson was neglecting his duties as a
congressman 10 conduct the campaign.

Mr. Habson .entered J.ie senatorial
race nearly two years ago. He visited
nearly ewry county and town in the (
State. In stump speeches he charged
his opponent "with having been in-1
fluenced by the "liquor interests." He
also charged that corporation influ-1
ence was behind the campaign -of
Mr. Underw ">od for the presidential j
nomination in 1912. All the charges;
were denied by Mr. Underwood.

Compulsory Education iu the Southern;
A vigorous plea for compulsory1
scnooi attendance laws in tne soutnern
States is made by William H.
Hand, State high school inspector 'for
Sout.i Carolina, in a bulletin just issued
by the United stales Bureau of
Education. After poin'ing out that
six Stares still without compulsory |
laws?South Carolina, Georgia, Flor-1
ida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas, \
and the four States with compulsory!
laws that apply only partially?Mary-|
land, Virginia, Arkansas, and Louis-1
ia.:a?are all Southern States, Mr. j
Hand presents statistics showing that;
although illiteracy has been reduced i
rapidly in these S.ates within the last
two decades, they still have the highest
percentage of illiteracy among tlhe!
"The figures can have but one meaning,"
declared .Mr. Hand. "They show
that compulsory education reduces illiteracy.
"The opponents oi' compulsory education
insist that the people will send
their children to school without being
obliged to do so, if only they are shown
Tnpir rintv nriH rhpir nhli^n rinn to
their children. These opponents declare
that the younger generation of
white children are already in school, j
Neither contention is true. In 1910 i
the 32 Southern Stales had 7SS.699 na-j
tive white children beween the ag*-s j
of t? and 14 not in school.
Who are these illi:erato white chil-I
dren, and why are they n t in school?1
Some of t-jem are :he sons and daugnt- j
ers of parents themselves ignoraatj
and unable to appreciate or to understand
what an educa ion means to
their children and to the S ate. S:me
are the children of sordid fathers and :
mothers who are more than willing to |
make wage earners and breadwinners j
of their untaught offspring at the ex-!
pense of their firure manhood and j
womanhood. Many are at work on the j
farms, sacrificed to t'he monotonous!
round of planting crops, cultivating!
crops, harvesting crops, and again]
planting crops. Some are at work in |
stores and s:hops or engaged as mes-;
senger boys, all at a small wage. Many j
are employed in the nerve-dulling
and bloodsapping environment of the
mills, receiving good wages as children
in exchange for vigor of body and
training of mind as men and women; i
while thousands of 'Others are roamins
the streets and country 1-*--es. the
training ground for idlers, vl. grants,
and enemies to law, order, and decency.
"When the State has provided'
schools for all its children, it has per-j
forme;! only a portion of its duty. If j
a universal school tax is justiciable
on t^e gr und tlur p )pular education
is a necessity, compulsory attendance j
by the State is also justifiable. The i
State has no right *o levy and collect
taxes for a specific purpose and then
permit that purpose to be defeated at
the hand of indifferent o: selfish pari

i?pulsory attendance would work hard-'
ships in the homes of :he poor. Is it
pot a fact that the po3r child is the very
one who most needs the aid of the
State to bring him into possession o?
his own? He it is who mus: soon face
;he complexities of modern life and
.jd insistent demands of citizenship
with none oi' the advantages common
to birth or wraith. The poor child is
the very one whom the S ate ought :o '
help, because he himself is helpless.
"<The argifment against compulsory j
attendance on account of the negro j
has worn threadbare; surely the time !
has come o drop it. Some phases of j
i: are pathetic. Is it wise or expedient j
to permit thousands of white boys and
girls to grow up in ig oranee lest in
forcing them into school the aspirati
ns O'f the negro child should be
awakened? Shall the white man remain
ignoran: in order to encourage
or to compel *he negro to remain ignorant?
Is it better for white 'and
black to remain ignorant than for both
to become intelligent?
"I yield to no one in the matter of
pride over what has been accomplished
educationally in the past 40 years.
We have planned bet'er schools, inspired
the taxpayers to vote taxes for |
schools, encourage the people to build
model seuoolhouses, :o lengthen their j
school terms, to employ belter teach
ers and to pay them better salaries,
and to make their schools their pride.
But wha: has been accomplished in the
way of a substantial decrease in the illiteracy
of the citizenship? Of what:
value are all our school taxes, our ele|
gant schoolliouses, our improved
