Hon. J. E. Swearingen has withdrawn
from the race for governor
and entered the race for reelection
as state superintendent of education,

fourteen years, and a position which
he fills with marked ability and discrimination.
We have no doubt in
the world that he is by long and far
the best informed man, or woman
either, for that matter, on the school
situation in South Carolina, and he is
familiar with the problems that are
pressing for solution at this time, and
we felt from the beginning that it
was unfortunate that he had decided
to enter the race for governor. And,
as we have heretofore remarked, the
position of state superintendent of
education is by far the most important
office in the state at this time,
and it takes a whole lot bigger man
to fill it than is necessary in the governor's
office, that is to fill it as it
should be, and as the problems that
confront us now, demand that it shall
be filled, if we are to keep our forward
Keep your eye on Geo. K. Laney in
this race for governor. The Herald
and News is not in politics this year,
but we just give you that hint if you
desire to keep up with the trend as
the campaign develops.
The American Railway association
has on a campaign to avoid accidents
at crossings, and the slogan is "Cross
Crossings Cautiously," and it is a
good slogan and should be observed
by all motorists, but some of them
do not do anything cautiously. They
do not even give you any road where
the road is wide enough for both to
havv plenty. And they pass you without
giving the signal. But of course
every one should be cautious at all
crossings of railroads. With the
noise of the auto it is very easy ior
a train to be coming without the driver
of the car hearing it, and therefore
the 'best way to be cautious is
to stop, look and listen before driving
up on the railroad track.
PROF. CHRIS W. WELCH
The Herald and News of last Tuesday
carried a brief announcement of
the death of Prof. Welch. We are
printing today fuller details of his
illness and death and also an editorial
tribute from the Houston Post.
The passing of Prof. Welch removes
one of the older boys of Newberry
college who were here during
c+mopcrHnsr davs of the college and
11 it OWi. o v
severs a friendship made and cemented
during the days of our college life,
and such friendships are always true
and lasting, even though the duties
of life lead us in different directions
and in fields of labor far apart.
Chris Welch was a hightoned honorable
boy in college and retained^these
high ideals all through his life. He
exempplified that Southern chivalry
which goes to make the fine old Southern
gentleman, and there never has
been and never will be again a higher
type of man. We had seen but little
of him for twenty years or more, but
when he was here two years ago he
was the same Chris Welch of the other
days, though broken in health. He
graduated with the first honor of his
* J :* "'Of * rpmarkfl hi V
C12!jS, <1(1 U it naj u . v
strong class, as the record of the men
who composed it will testify. I
And just here we can not restrain
a little reminiscence. There were
only seven in the class, and it was
considered a very large class in those
days, and it was the largest class
. graduated from the' college to that
time. All of them made good, and
the longevity of the class is a good
Tecord. Up to a year ago there had
been only one death among the seven,
and that occurred only a few
years after graduation. For fortythree
years the class had been spared
to do life's battles, and right well did
they perform their duties. There was
J. Eusebius Beley, a young Luther-:
an minister of great promise, who
first studied medicine and practiced
for a year, who was the first to pars
some thirty-five years ago, while
serving as pastor of a charge down in
Lexington county. Then there were
the two Daniel boys, W. W. and J.
W., both eminent and great preachers
in the Methodist church. W. W.
died only about a year ago, and was
for many years the most able president
of the Columbia college. Walter
is ranked, and properly so, as
among the great preachers of the
Methodist church, and he is also an '
author of books of no mean merit.
Col. John F. Hobbs, a publisher and

cess. There was S. 0. Kaminer whoj
was to be the business man of the [
class and who for everal years conducted
a mercantile" business successfully
at Lexington, and whom we un-i
dertand is living in Florida. And
Edward P. Aull who became an engineer
and afterward in the cotton
seed oil business, has succeeded and
lives in New Mexico. He and his wife
were on a visit to South Carolina last J
year. And Chris Welch, seven in all j
and six of them lived for forty-two!

are still living. Will Daniel and:
Welch and Hobbs while in college!
planned to be lawyers, and oni> !
Hobbs was admitted to the practice I
of the profession. So you can never J
tell where the path will lead, howe'erl
well you plan as a college boy.
Welch was a born teacher and lead-,
er, and somehow we always felt that
he was directed in the right path as to ;
a profession. His first school was at
Spring Hill in Lexington county, and
he was the only teacher. A little red
school house on the hill beside the
road. But a teacher inside, and that
made, the school. He sent us a pen
sketch of the school house while he
was teaching, and we have it yet.
He then came to Prosperity and was
xrvoiNr fU -FnnnHpr of the Prosperity
i COilJ wuv
high school. The old wood school
"house that stood near the C., N. & L.
depot at Prosperity was put up while
he was teaching at this place, and
was really the first forward step made
by the people of this community in
the matter of education. He had a.
fine school with two or three assie-.
tants. He published a catalogue and
we remember very well that the motto
of the school was, "Education is
the Hope of Our Country." It was
true then and is now.
From Prosperity Welch came to
the professorship of mathematics in.
Newberry college, and from here he
went to Texas as principal of the high
school in Houston, and then he came
back to take a chair of mathematics
in Clemson and thence back to Texas
where he made such a success of
his private school. We remember
very distinctly ? Sunday morning in
the early summer some twenty-five
years ago, that Chris and his inter
esting family were living with Dr.
and Mrs. Peter Robertson in the old
Hunter home where the handsome
residence of Mr. Geo. W. Summer
now stands, and we took a stroll down
the railroad toward where the Mollohon
mill is now, and we were talking
about what he should do. He had
just resigned the year before the
professorship at Clemson. I remember
that I said to him, that what he
should do was to go to Texas and open
a private school and prepare
young men for college, and that with
his experience and his record as a
teacher he would have no difficulty in
getting as many boys as he could
handle, if he would only make his ,
tuition charges large enough to attract
men who had money. He said
he did not have the money to go to
Texas. I said borrow it. Whether he
borrowed it or* not he went and the
result was the fine private school he
Welch was a born teacher. He had
ability to-convey to others the knowledge
he himself had, so that the other
could understand it, and that is what
is necessary in the teacher. He was
still a young man and to the human
vision it seems strange that he should
be stricken in the midst of his usefulness.
but it is for some wise pur
pcse in the plans of the All-Wise
Ruler of the universe. We must feel
that it is all. for the best and realize
that somewhere the sun is shining
and sometime it will be morning.
"It's hard to do, I reckon?with the
mist around your eyes,
And not a star a-shinin' in the midnight
of the skies!
But?think! The light is somewhere,
on the hills of life."
My sympathies go out to the wife
who has trod the pathway with him
all the years, through the hard times
and the good times, and to the children,
out you have been blessed beyond
that of many families in that
there has been no vacant chair
around the hearthstone all the many
days of the journey.

<S> AMONG THE SCHOOLS <S>
I will be out of town from Tuesday
afternoon until Saturday morning:. I
am planning at this writing to attend
the State Press association at Myrtle
Beach and it meets on Wednesday
morning and I will leave on Friday
in time to be home by Saturday j
morning. I am making this state-:
ment here so that if there should be
any one desiring to have business
with the county superintendent of education**
he may govern himself accordingly.
It is true I am out of the
office at the court house a good deal
when I am in the county, but when-'
ever this happens I am in the county
or somewhere on business for the
schools. I do not stay in the office
when I have work to do outside. I
nave not taken but two days since
I took charge (=f the office in September,
1920, and those two days
were on the trip to Winston-Salem a
short time ago. j
After Monday no more school
claims will be approved until after
the first of July even if there should
be money to pay them. My books
must correspond with the books of
the county treasurer and we have
adopted this date for the last approval
so that there may not be any
C1&III1S UUl5liiiiUiiJ^ appiuvcu anu iAv/C|
paid by the treasurer. In some of the
districts I do not known whether we
can pay any more or not until the
treasurer can tell how much tax has
been paid. The truth is I do not
know how much tax has been paid in
any district and therefore can not tell
how the finances of any district
stand. It will take some time for the
treasurer to make out his executions
and know how much to credit to the
district. Until this is done it will be
impossible for me to do more than
estimate the income of any districtIt
is mighty bad but it is no fault of
the treasurer or the superintendent
of education. My books must close
on June 30.

1 Passing of Prof. C. W. Welch
Editorial Houston Post, 14.
Among those who give their lives
in ?3ervice to others, the teacher takes
high rank. To compute the value in
material terms of the benefaction
: of one who devotes a lifetime to the
| education of youth were an impossi
[ bio task.
i So, it would be futile to attempt;
to measure the worth to Houston of
such a man as Professor C. W. Welch1
who passed away at hi? 1 )me Monday
morning, after more .an a quarter
of ? century devoted to teaching of
young people of this city in a select
school*of his own founding, and con-'
ducted according to his own lofty,
ideals of education.
Perhaps, the best tribute that could
be paid to him is to point to the lives
of the scores of good and useful citi-;
zens he tauerht and helped to shape in
their formative periods. In them may'
be read a more eloquent eulogy than
can be expressed in words. In them
are the fruits of his distinguished,
though unostentatious, service most
A South Carolinian by birth and
breeding, a teacher in one of the
higher institutions of learning in that
state while he was yet a young man,
Professor Welch came to Houston
more than twenty-five years ago and
immediately became a constructive
influence in this city. For a time he'
was a teacher in the Houston high
school, later establishing the private
academy he conducted for so many
. A refined cultured Christian gen
tleman of the South, he transplanted,
to Texas the ideals of culture and
character which have helped to put
this state in the forefront of Chris- j
tian civilization during the past generation.
As a teacher, he was remarkably
efficient. He taught both by precept
and example. His influence permeated
those about him, because of his
qualities as a man. His pupils not
only honored him as a scholar and instructor,
but loved and respected him
for his kindly spirit, his generous na-,
ture, and his exemplay character.
The passing of Professor Welch
brings a sense of deep personal grief
to a great company who sat at his
feet in other days, and the citizenry
generally feels the loss of a useful
and noble member of the community.
