Newberry, S. C., June 1, 1915.
Editor Herald and News:
The Herald and News being so given
to pair play, I was rat;:er surprised
to read the above little comment in
Tuesday's paper, so sorry, because, as
you know, Mr. Editor, there are so
very many people who depend chiefly
upon their county papers for inform a
B tion as to current events. In view <.f
that fact I would be glad if you can
V publish the enclosed clipping from the
current issue of the Youth's CompanH
ion. Interested Reader.

H The British Navy.
|| " The spectacular character of the
f1' German submarine campaign, culminating
in the destruction of the Lusitania,
has blinded many people to the
real achievents of the Britis'a navy in
nrAsp.rvme the economic position of
1 Great Britain during the war, and in
imperiling tfcat of its enemies.
At the very outbreak of the hostilities
the German, merchant fleet vanished
from the sea; with its vessels
ahut up in German harbors or in those
of neutral nations, it still remain useless
to the empire. The blockade that
tihe allied governments have declared
against German ports has been effectively
carried out by British warsihips?
atl east as far as the North Sea ports
are concerned. The isolation of Ger
(many is not complete, ior mere muai.
Still be some trading with Scandinavian
'ports across tlie Baltic Sea; but
b&yond question the cordon of British
cruisers has cut off from Germany a
supply of war material and foodstuffs
that would be of the greatest value
to th?- empire. The desperation with
whic&the Germans have waged their
retaliatory submarine campaign proves
' One by one t^e German commerce
destroyers that were at large when the
? v?ViaiFA KrkOfn />a ntnrftrl
( ' 'Y/xXriT UXV&C VUt ii?? t vw|/vv??
sunk, or driven, into neutrai harbors.
Under the conditions that have pro
vailed in former wars, British commerce
could proceed today in utter
indifferlnce to the fact that the nation
is engaged in a terrible^ war.
Only against the submarine has the
Britisiii navy found no satisfactory defense;
but the novelty and the dramatic
viciousness of the attacks of the
submarines have made their exploits
seem more remarkable than t':ey really
are . They have sunk about seventy
British merchant 'vessels in ten
months; but during a single year of
the war of 1812, American cruisers
and privateers took or sunk 639 British,
ships, and that at a time when Bj-itish
commerce was much smaller than it is

Yankee privateer of a hundred years j
Br ago was far more dangerous than the!
German submarine of today. The j
normal annual loss to the British mer- j
$;> -chant marine by peril of wind andj
^ "wave is probably greater than the peril j
i% of the submarii e torpedo.
f i Finally, the German high-sea fleet,
A like its merchant fleet, has felt obliged!
M to keep to its fortified f:arbors; the|
British navy is too strong for it to
< ;, risk a battle. And still England in
concert with France can spare vessels
HL enough to make a very serious attack
on Constantinople. That campaign still i
hangs in t^e balance, but the allies J
P believe that it will succeed. On the
& whole, the British fleet, by performing
I successfully the duty wita which it is
[charged?the protection of the economic
welfare of the island kingdom
even under the stress of a mighty war
?has well repaid the nation for the
great sums spent on it.

The Hoge School Closing.
The Hoge Graded school held its
closing exercises May 28-31 in the 'Miller
chapel, A. M. E. church. Rain interfered,
but despite the weather, good
crowds witnessed all the exercises.
Enthusiastic patrons pronounce the
| exercises the best ever rendered by
I the Hoge school. It is fair to state
that the program was entirely creditable,
and the contestants in the ninth
grade contest, on Friday night, and
vAiin? men and women who took
tw? JV?Q -
part in the graduating exercises, on
Monday night, reflected hard training,
excellent poise and self-possession.
Tfhe nintih grade contest was held on
Friday night, the 28th. At this time
nine representatives of th-e ninth grade
contested for prizes given by the citi^
zens and Hoge faculty, respectively,
for excellence in speaking. Tlhe first
prize, a gold medal, was- won by Eliza
Irene Ruff, with the subject, "Knowledge
as a Power;" the second, a set
of gold ihat pins, by Addie Lucile Pearson,
with the subject, "Our Pilgrim Ancestors."
The judges made honorable
mention of Fannie Mae Chalmers. Her
subject was "Return of Regulus."
I The annual sermon was preached
by Rev." E. J. Gregg, of Rock Hill, himself
a former principal of Hoge school,
I 'Sunday morning at 11 o'clock, in Milx
i ier chapel. Jtiis text was taxen irum
i'Luke 2:52, "And Jesus increased in
I wisdom and stature, and in favor ^ith
i God and man." His discourse, "Tfoe
1'Ideal Character," was a masterly, yet
; a clear and simple presentation,
i The graduating exercises were held
I on Monday nigfot. At this time ten
young people were given certificates
i of graduation. The salutatory was delivered
by Benjamin. Franklin Stewart,

were as follows: "The Value of a

! Simon Walter Allen, Jr.; "The Negro
of the Present," Robert Simpkins,Jr.;
"The Choice of a Vocation," Hattie
j Bell Baker; "Carve Out Your Own
j Fortune," Elizabeth Sheppard.
Tilie annual oration was delivered by
i Rev. Gregg, his subject being "iVoca'
tional Training." He held that many
! men have an avocation, but few a voca!
tion. Every one should have a defi'
nite vocation, so as to be able to care
; for himself and earn a living. Booker

special training'. The high school does
*iot prepare for a special vocation, giving
only the foundation. We should
1 strive to do some one thing well. Few
can do many things, and many fail
to do one thing successfully. The
' speaker deprecated the fact that many
girls marry for support, instead of
! pursuing a course that would make
them independent. Take time for
' preparation and avoid "short cuts."
! No one can choose a vocation for the
| young people who *re going out of
our schools. They must choose for
themselves. This choice should be de

Preachers yersns Picture Shows.
The moving picture show has sprung
up in hamlet, town and city in re'
sponse to a popular demand to be
; ententained and instructed. It fur1
nisibes a wholesome amusement to a
j large class of people wjho had here,
tofore been denied the privileges it
affords. It attracts attention and attendance
from other places whose
moral intliiftnoftft ata not sn srood. It
j is true that at some shows the scenes
I throwD on the screens are not pleas(
ant or elevating, but if the patron is
discriminating and patronizes only
; such shows as are known to be un|
objectionable, tftere is a possibility
j for an entertaining and a profitable
( evening not afforded by any other form
j of amusement. Would the preachers
be serving the best interests of their
people by shunning the moving picture
show, thereby indicating that the
amusement they afford is of an uni
wholesome character, or would it not
. be better for feaem to lend their influ
: ence to tfoe maintenance of these
, places for the pleasurable occupation
| of the people and thus give encouragel
ment the progressive refinement of the
shows? As a form of popular diveri
sion for the family the moving picture
: has become a powerful influence in
