CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TO
OPEN INFORMATION BUREAUS
Beth Tourists and Farmers to Be
Benefited by the Opening of
Announcement is made that tha
Newberry chamber of commerce
plans to open a new department in
connection with their regular routine
n ' ' - -1 - - i. ? nt I ml .1' f
01 activities lUWiUU U1C Wi
a greater Newberry city an\l county.
The new department to be opened
will be known as the Tourist's and
Farmer's Information bureau, a department
where the many tourists
passing through Newberry c:n go
and get detailed information concerning
condition cf the highways
throughout the country and the
shortest, and best routes to various
cities throughout the entire S^utn,
arid where farmers can go and get
information concerning diversified
farming in all of its branches.
In speaking cf the opening of this
infnvnut.i'nn bureau Secretary Mc
Daniel said: ''This matter was discussed
at an official meeting of the,
officers and directors held on Wednesday,
August 16, and it w.is unanimously
decided that this department
should be opened at the earliest
"While we have maintained a farmers
information bureau for some
* r _ _
time, it is planned to add many lectures
which will be of greater benefit
to the farmers of Newberry and
surrounding counties. Of course,
this part of the work will be carried
out in cooperation with the two demonstration
agents who have offices in
the same building and the direction
of this work will be under the supervision
of the agricultural committee
of our organization and the two demonstration
"AS 10 me tourists niiuiui u ju
bureau, it will be carried cut entirely
under -ik- supervision .of. our
organization. The need of this dc/partment
has been felt for a Ion?
time, in view of the fact that tourists
and traveling men who puss
through Newberry do not havs any
place where they can go to get information
such as will be given out
by us. To give this department publicity,
a large sign is being painted
snd will be placed o.i the corner of
Mr In and College streets on the side
on the building occupied by Haltiwanger
and Carpenter. This s.'^ji
directs tourists and farmers to go-to
the chamber of commerce for information."
Citizens Shculd Cooperate
Mr. McDaniel raid further that every
citizen of Xe> <;erry should cooperate
in. every possible way with
this department and he urges them
to do ro. When a tcurist stops and
asks for information send him to the
charr.'ber of commerce, likewise the
farmers. The tourists will not only
be given what information they desire.
but will be told something of
the many advantages offered in the
city cf Newberry and in Newberry
r-rmnrv A rpfristpv will hp knnl in
the office and the name of every
tourist seeking information will be
registered, with a view of mailing to
each of th,em printed matter concerning
Newberry from time to time.

COL. C. J. FURCELL CLAIMS
FIELD OF COTTON NO V/EEVIL
But If the Inscct Should Strike
i Grown Boll Then Lcok Out? ,
Worse Than Tire Punctures
Col. C. J. Purcell claims that the
boll weevil hasn't got his cotton.
The -boll weevil has got lets cf other
people's cotton and is going to get
ai! the cotton bel'ci'e he is done with
his job. We hope not, but Col. Pur-cell
s field may yet be like a field of
cotton near the home of the reporter.
The field is situated just# beyond
Mr. Jno. A. Lindsay's, colleger ard.
Mr. Geo. P. Hill, living near '.y, has
been occupying some of his time going
through the patch looking for
punctures. Week after week he
couldn't find a puncture. The cotton
was large and growing beautifully
w.'th its weli developed bolls, ail
seemingly weevilless, the lovely
<.;reen sikeen of the unpanctured bolls
being well pic ising to the eye. Other
people's cotton was ruined by the
bad boll wicked weevil. All around,
everywhere it seemed, the dreaded
^ thing was getting in its work of ruin.
Not so, in this particular and favored
field, where the prospect was promising
up to about two wee'vs ago., when,
- * * ' * /-v t -?T TT'll
io and beftold. une aay ivir. nin saw
a puncture. The weevil had started'
to take possession of that patch. He
was there with both feet. The wee-.
vil has charge. Col. Purcell had better
lock for punctures in his cotton
boils. Punctures in cotton bolls are
worse than punctures in automobile

One Hundred Cars to Go From Newberry
Loaded With Newberry
Merchants and Business Men
Friday a committee from the retail
trade committee cf. the Newberry
chamber of commerce, consisting of
McHardy Mower, Miss T. E. Salter
and Hal Kohn. went to Chappells and
met with a committee from that town
locking towards arranging a scrt of
friendship or get-better-acquainted
gathering in Chappells so that the
people of this city could go up there
and meet the folks cf Chcppells. A
good meeting was held in Mr. Coleman's
cctton o?ice with representatatives
from the different business
houses of Chappells attending. The
object of the trip was explained and
heartily approved by all and arrange
ments were maae to na\e uie meeting
Thursday, the 24th, at 4:00 p.
m. It is hoped by the retail trade
comnrttse to have at least one hundred
cars go up from Newberry, each
one full of pecpie, to meei with the
Chappells people. It is thoroughly
understood that there will be no business
discussed, at least Newberry is
'carrying none of her problems to
V>nf r>nn iri (' tlT
V^llcippciio, UUl; v/ uv w* J
realizes that this city must be up ani
doing if the volume of business from
Chappells is diverted this way. Just
Thursday it was noted that the
creamery frcm Greenwood was making
a collection of cream bought prior
to this trip. Certainly this business
and much other should be encouraged
to ccme to the county seat
and th<i people of the Chappells community
feel very friendly towards
their county scat, yet much remains
to be done before the flow is directed
t Newberry, and a few trios of ac
quaintvjncc will do more tnan anything
else to cement the two towns
-together-. At , the._ gathering there
will be no great flow of oratory, yet
each place will have some 0.12 to say
a word of welcome and appreciation.
Another committee visited vVKitmire
Friday and held an enthusiastice
conference with representatives
from that piace. Messrs. ]?. A. Carpenter,
Marvin Summer and C. P.
McDanicl made this trip and they reported
a fine gathering with v.uch
enthusiasm. They did r.ot arrange
for a general gathering, bur plan t.n
do so at y later dat;?. 1 h 2 plan of
the retail trade committee is to make
trip- to all of tY_- communities of
this county and mevt ?vith the people
and learn to know them bcti,2'\ The
Unofficial mpfto -"f ihe r.?iail truce

the boys and their leader according
to the reguhr camp style. During
the first 'day the time was spent in
laying ball and pitching horseshoes.
Two teams motored to Chapin

a'round which the club boys enjoyed
a most wonderful time, with
music, songs and short talks furnishing
entertainment. The Little Mountain
school house was used as "barracks"
for the clubsters at night.
Most of them got to sleep not later

Troop No. 3, Newberry's youngest
troop of Boy Scouts, held a very enthusiastic
meeting last Thursday
night in the Legion hall, the regular
meeting place of Troops 1 and 3.
After the business session, which included
the reading and adopting of
the trcop constitution, a general discussion
of matters pertaining to the
welfare of the troop was indulged in
by all members, after which the election
of a patrol leader was called for
Scout Emory Bowman receiving the
greatest nunvber of votes was "elected
patrol leader of the Panther patrol.
John L. Epps is the leader of
the Tigers. The troop was very for-,
tun ate in having as its guests some
very distinguished scouts from other
troops who were called on for
speeches. First Class Scribe Walter
Mcintosh of Trcop 11, Columbia, responded
in a very pleasing manner
by saying that he was glad to be the
guest of a troop where he felt at
heme. Senior Patrol Leader Wra.
Eddy of Troop 1, Newberry, was so
pleased with the conduct and general
demeanor of some members of
Troop 3, that he offered to effect a
transfer of this member to Troop 1.
Needless to say his motion was ruled
During the social period of the
program a race was conducted which
caused much amusement for both the
participants and the spectators. At
the conclusion of the regular program
the scoutmaster, Howard Oeerby
announced that a drawing contest
would be held and a pri?e given the
winner. . Much excitement prevailed
for the prize and method of drawing
were both a secret. The prize, a
box of Sunshine Dainties, was won
by one of the visitors, First Class
Roy Anderson, who very liberally
dispensed "sunshine" to all present.
