* Saturday's Tragedy
Thee murder of Prof. M. Goode
Homes of the state University, Saturday
morning by Marshal Ben Haile
and the suicide of Marshal Haile, is
a tragedy which shocked the state.

fortuate conditions which apparently
led up to it.
We do know this: That even a
marshal, as a peace enforcement officer,
on the campus fo the University
of South Carolina, has no business
carrying an automatic revolver.
Marshal Haile, it is reported, haa
been a- chief of police of some small
town before accepting the position of
, marshal r?n the University campus.
His duties there as a preserver of
peace .:nd" order undoubtedly must
have been light. He seems to have
had something to do with the repair

Wofford, Furman, Erskine, Newberry
and Clinton do not have a marshal
or even a constable. Twentyfive
years ago the old colored janitor
at the state University who used to
summon young men to "the president's
office'' was generally known to
the boys as "sheriff" but there was no
such thing as a peace officer thought

OF THE LONG AGO
Yes, I wanted to tell how the good
1 old people 50 years ago observed th<;
Lord's day. Mother was so strict
; over her children until I was afraid
i to whistle on Sunday. I remember
| the old bake oven that stood in the
j backyard and every piece of bread,
: potato pie, cake and anything else
'that was to be prepared for Sunday
was put in the o>en on Saturday and
: baked or roasted and put away for
Sunday. And when Sunday came
the mother was not woriied to dsath
over the hot fire cooking. For there
'were no cook stoves in those days.
( Not every one in the community
had these old bake ovens, and several
of' our neighbor women would bring
their bread, potatoes, cakes and pies
to our home on, Saturday to get the
use of the old bakery that the Lord's
day might be observed.
| Mother taught us not to swear
either by heaven or by earth. So
brother and I adopted the words, "I
declare it is so," when there arose
any doubt as to what the other was
saying. We knew it woud never do
to say "I swear it is so."
j We didn't have then what is known
as dining rooms. They were called
kitchens in those days. Yh? old kitchen
stood some distance from the
house in the back yard. And. I shall
never forget one summer night'wh?n
brother and I got through supper,
washed our feet, went into the house
and lay dowft on our pallets. While
mother was quietly washing the
di?hes in the kitchen we began to test
our manhood and it was not long before
brother got the best of me and
I began to squeal and it was only
about a minute later that we felt that
old switch that had been seasoning
for the longest, ringing over our
backs, and not another word was
said. This medicine is better than
paregoric to put children tb sleep.
This was mother's reformatory and
didn't cost anybody one cent only a
little motion of the arm.

If a doctor had spoken of contracting
disease by germs who would have
known what he meant?
Mother had been taught that an
jounce of prevention was worth a
pound of cure, and when one of the
children failed to take his so.^re
meal it was no use running ar<>-.;n<l
