FAVORS FARM BLOC
Editor Herald and News:
In your account of the meeting of
the candidates for congress at Newberry
last Saturday you state that I
indorse Mr. Dominick's position on
the farm bloc. I agre<* with Mr.
Dominick as to the tariff, but in his
sneech he did not refer, as I remern
ber, to the farm bloc at all. I have
not heard him mention it in the campaign
as yet. I did hear him, however,
refer to it, in the state Dc>n-.(
ocratic convention, at which time,
he denounced it as being a Republican
high tariff organization.
I find him to be entirely wrong
about it, because it is a non-partisan
organization for the purpose of
bringing about legislation for the
benefit of the farmers, and is not a
unit at all on the question ci xne
tariff. Unless Mr. Dominick has
changed his views on the subject
1 since I heard him discuss the farm
bloc, then I don't agree with him at
I did not expect to 'bring the bonus
question into the campaign, butafter
Mr. Dominick had devoted 20
minutes of his 40 minute speech in
defense of his vote on the bonus bill,
and after Mr. Shei'ird had stated
his position, I felt it only due the
voters of the district that I state my
nr.iif-inn nr. it. And I stated at WhiiN
mire that my party, the Democratic
party, at Ssn Francisco wrote into
its platform a plank pledging- for a
bonus for all ex-service men, I am
loyal to my party and stand by its
policies. That the San Francisco
platform is the law of the party until
repealed by a new platform. I
might have said that two million,
one hundred thousand ex-service
men have already petitioned congross
to adjust their compensation.
I note that Mr. Dominick as&s
whv we have not paid a bonus out of
our state treasury to the ex-soldier.
It is because I thought nothing surer
than that the United States government
with all of its billions to let
other countries have to bonuc their
ex-soldires with, would surely do
something for its own soldiers, who
saved the world from being overrun
. by the Germans. I wonder if Mr.
DominicK favors a bonus by our
nocr little state and yet opposes it by
the great United States government,
the richest of all nations upon tne
i While we were sending: the boys
I to the war we said, "Ask what you
will and it will be given thee." But
since their return we have offered
"A stone for ?. loaf, and a serpent
for a fish."
I thank you very much if you will
be kind enough to publish the above,
Very sincerely yours,
Ed. P. McCravy,
Candidate for Congress.

> ROTARY LUNCHEON <i>
' i < ,
The faculty of the Newberry college
summer school, several other
invitd guests, the Newberry Rotary
club, an elegant luncheon served a la
Kullcc-k, and an attractive program:
Result?One of the finest meetings
that has ever come the way of the
local Rotarians! The meeting was
held in the grill room of the New
berry hotel on Tuesday at l:3U
o'clock, and fcr the hour and a quarter
allotted there was something doing
all the time, with Rotarian-Prer;ident
Haskell Kibler pulling th-:^
strings. Beautiful favors, bearing
the Rotary emblem. in colors, were
presented to the Rotes' and guests
The tables were decorated with pot
plants and cut flowers, which were
arranged only as Rotarian Hal Kohn
can do it.
An innovation at this meeting
was the flag salute, which was done
while "America" was being sung bj
the assemblage. The American flag:
which stood at the rear of the prcswas
raised as the Rotariam
and guests stood at attention anc
sang* "America," th*?3 feature beins
very impressive. This feature wil
be a regular part of the club's program
in the future.
After thanks had been returnee
by Rotarian Earle Babb, original
limericks were recited by Rotariar
Bill Wallace, the premier "limerick
er" of tne Newberry Rotary club
and Prof. Gilbert P. Voigt, of th<
summer r.chbol faculty, whose pro
duction places him in the front rani
of limerick artists. It will be seer
that the limericks, which follow
were very apropos?and it is need
less to designate which was writtei
by Rotarian Wallace and which b\

According to rule,
And net according to whim.
There is no telling how the secre
tiry, Hal Kohn, is going to call th<
roll of the club. Sometimes he call
the names of the members, at othe:
tirr.es he calls it by vocations. A
Tuesday's luncheon he called the tel
epnone numbers of the members and
actually some of the members di(
not know when to respond! Now, th<
Rotes are wondering just what meth
od will be employed by the ener^et
ic secretary at the next meeting, bu
the likelihood is that the member
will be called upon to respond to th
roll call by standing on their heads
The address of welcome .was de
; iivered by Rotarian Zach Wright?
and it is needless to say that th
guests felt perfectly "at home" afte
the warm wore1-! of welcome of thi
Rote had been spoken. The response
was made by Dr. W. K. Gotwald o:
' i r \ i_ u ~ M ,
tnc summer scnoui latuaj who, m <
few well chosen words, expressed th
appreciation of the faculty and oth
or guests of the Rothrians' hospital
"My Summer School IJrote^es'
was the subject assigned to Rotariai
Sid Derrick, and he proceeded, ii
his inimitably-jocular manner, to in
troduce the members of the faculty
In the most serious moments of thi
Rote-*: talk, he credited a iarg
iv.ensure of the success of the sum
mer school to Rotarian Jim Kinard
director of the school, who has bee:
indefatigable in his efforts to mak
this second year of the school a pro
nounced success. The fact that th
membership h :*.: ? increased fror
eighty last year to one hundred anfifty
t]ys session is evidence enoug
that Rotarian Kmard's eiiorts nav
bei;j; crowned with the success fo
which he has striven. This state
ment can be made without in th
least detracting from the work o
the very iibie faculty which he ha
associated with him. Rotarian Dei
rick's talk was greatly enjoyed, for
be it known, this Rotarian alway
''"says a mouthful" when he gets up <
to speak. ;
I Mrs. J. D.'Quattlebaum of the fa- ]
culty then made a talk in her u^ual I
happy manner on "Making Foot '
rnnts." iransiorming me notari-11
sns into a bunch of boys. Mrs. Quat- ' I
tlebaum proceeded to tell "the chil- !;
dren" a nursery story with a moral, I
' and to say that the "kiddies" enjoy- ' |
' ed it is expressing the fact very :!
mildly, indeed. Mrs. Quattlebaum r
' has sncken before the Roturian.5 beJ
fore, consequently they all knew that 1
a treat was in store for them. True
to expectations, the treat was there
?and the Rotarian-kiddies regretted
that she did not tell another "story."
"Random Recollections of a Former
College President/ by Rota'rian
i*en Lromer, gave tnat note a nne
' opportunity to make a few witty
' thrusts at the college professors
present, and this he did to a "queen's
taste." Rctarian Cromer is always
at h:s best, but he is. perhaps, more
so at a Rotary luncheon. His talk
at Tuesday's luncheon was no exception,
and the Rotes and guests
were sorry that he called time on
himself and considerably abbreviated
I. K. Hunt. Esq., brought the
greetings of the Kiwanis cluo to the
Rotarians, his short talk being greatly
' A drawing contest was then en*
tcred into, the lucky number being
' held by Mr. Joe Shealy, who is con1
nected with the office of the state
superintendent of education, Colum'
b!a. In a nicely wrapped package
' which was opened by the winner,
was a baseball bat, which was made
L the subject of a fine little talk by
1 Mr. Shealy.
A book of pcems was presented by
^ the club to each of the lady members
of the summer school faculty, Mrs.
J. D. Quzittlebaum and Misses Caro,
lyn Cromer and Elizabeth Dominick.
Vpc luncheon was a most en
joyablc occasion and it appeared
j that the gpests enjoyed the meeting
as much as the Rotariar.h did, and
this, to say the least, is goin? some!
Last cummer the Rotes had the summer
school faculty as their gjests at
a luncheon and they got so much en2
joyment from the event that an int
vilation wzr, extended again this
year. It is safe to predict that this
; wmII be an annual event, for the
| notes of Newberry do love "good
: company'' and that summer school

Federal Ccurt Order Served at
Florence Meets No
Florence, July 24.?Announcement
that the Atlantic Coast Line
Railroad company }?ad procured an
injunction against the striking shopmen
at Florence appears to have)
been received here with genuine surprise,
since the company was said to
have abandoned such a move early
last week. As every thing here has
seemed to be more quiet and orderly
than usual, this action was the less
cxpected. The shop crafts will em
ploy counsel to represent them at
'he hearing July 31. A meeting has
been called for tomorrow to discuss
the new situation. Deputy United
States Marshall Murphy of Charleston
has arrived with about 700 copies
of the federal court order. Inasmuch
as the unions are not incorporated
service upon the officers is not sufficient,
and every individual mem1
ber of the striking unions will have j
to be served. Officers of the union '
have furnished the deputy with am
auto and are giving" him all the us- i
sisUnce possible in reaching the meni
to serve the papers. * Sheriff Burch, I
Deputy Sheriffs Connor andvC. L.j

GROOM SENDS TELEGRAM
First Intimation of Happy Evecii
Was Wired to Parents Informing
At 5:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon
the messenger boy handed the
following wire to the parties directly

"Mary and I married today her

"Mary," now Mrs. Henry Burton
Wells, Jr., was Miss Mary Carter of
Ruffin, in the lower part of the
state. She taught school near her
home, and had many friends in Newberry
where she visited on occasions.
She will be a charming addition to
the young social circles of Newberry.
When Burton left Newberry last
week for a visit "down the country"
he gave no hint of the big step he
w-s about to take. The engagement
was known to some, and was no
longer a secret, 'out the marriage
was not expected to take place until
some time later. Hence the news
from Green Pond was somewhat surprising.
It spread fast and created a
ripple of pleasure throughout the
c.ty, as the happy groom is one of
the most popular of Newberry's
young men and his friends were
glad to hear that he had won so
lovely a bride.
The Herald and News reporter
has been knowing Burton * Wells
