E. H. AULL, EDITOR,
Friday, August 25, 1922.
The Observer and The Herald and
News in order the better to serve the
people and to facilitate the getting
out of the news promptly have decid*
' - Jf ? J :
ed to comoine iorces anu issue uui>
one table of election returns on the
night of the election.
Headquarters will be at The Observer
office and the bulletin board
-will be placed in front of the office
and the news will be placed on the
board just as lapidly as it is received.
Friends of the papers and those
who are managers will confer a favor
and assist materially in getting
returns out early if they will phone
the result as soon as the count at any
fcox is completed. The Observer
phone is 87. Sonv- one will also be
at the phone at The Herald and News
office and will take returns there.
The phone of The Herald and News
|s 1. But we ask that all returns be
sent promptly to The Observer.
We will have experts to handle the
figures and the tables and the type
and with the cooperation of the managers
and our friends in the county
we will be a'ble to get out the full
We will also buleltin such news
from the state as we may be able to
The Herald and News.
We are publishing copies of the
official ballots for state and county
officers so that- the voter may look
them over and decide on his ticket
and save time when he comes to vote.
The election is next Tuesday and
the vote will be a large one this
year, nearly twice what it has been
heretofore and the count will take
longer and it will necessarily take
longer to get the result.
The candidates got a little rowdy
toward the end of the campaign and
a few of them passed some ugiy
words but it was a campaign remarkably
free from bitterness and mudslinging.
Now let the voters go to the
polls and cast their ballots as to
them seem right and proper for the
men or the woman they think best,
fitted for the position sought. The
trouble with too many of us is that
fitness is the last thing we consider
when we come to vote in the primary
election. Of course it should not be
that way and let us hope it will not
be that way in the election next
The work on the three miles of
road from Chappells to the Saluda
river is getting along rather slowly
but may be we are anxious for that
stretch to be completed and it appears
slow to us. The top soil has
'been put down on the little portion
" n_ ?j <-Uo4
leading oui irom ^nappens anu men,
will help some. Now if the traveler
could just go over the portion on to
the Simkins place he could avoid the
greater part of the bad road and
most of this has been graded. If the
contractor would just top soil it and
build the two or three little concrete
crossings and open this much of the
road i4 would avoid almost all of the
really bad section and make traveling
up this way much more comfortable
and easy. Why not do it?
The passing of Dr. fP. G. Ellesor
calls to mind a happy past. From the
then, looking to the present, it was a
long, long time, but from the now,
looking back to the then, it seems
but yesteryear. It calls to mind the
<4ovc ix-Vipn T was tpachini? in Xewber
ry college, and for two years I had
about twenty to twenty-five boys in
one class of whom I was very proud,
and whose record and life work I
have watched since those days with
a great deal of pleasure and pride,
because you will scarcely find so
.large a class of boys all of whom
liave made good and useful men and
most of them have made a high stand
!n their chosen life work.
Gray Ellesor was one of those
boys, and it has always been a matter
of great pleasure to me the success
he has made as a physician, and
even when he for so many years
clerked in Pelham's drug store he
was at all times a hard worker, and
took great interest in serving the
people who traded at this store, and
he always had lots of friends. Pelham's
drug store in the early days
4>* the college at Xewberry after its
return from Walhalla. was a favorite
Joafing place for the boys at Newber
? ??B? II !
ry college in the afternoons, ibecause J
there was not much loafing time in!
those days for the college boy who;
expected to make his class. I don't j
think Gray went to school after >
those days at Newberry college to
which I refer, until he went to the
medical college. Of course his training
in the drug store was of great
assistance to him as a physician, and
I have all the time felt a personal
interest and felt a sort of gratification
at the success he made as a physician,
and his taking off in the full
vigor of his manhood gives me a1
feeling of sorrow, and I sympathizewith
the wife and daughter, and can :
in some degree appreciate the loss
they have sustained,
That was a fine class of boys.'
There was Frank Bynum who has
made a success as a lawyer and has
sat on the supreme bench of the
state, and Hamp Hunt, a good law-1
yer, and also has the distinction of J
being an associate justice of the su- j
preme court, and both have written
opinions in important cases which
opinions have been highly commend-:
ed for their knowledge of the law
and the clear and fine diction in declaring
the law. Then there is Colie
Blease who has represented his county
in both branches of the legislature
and twice elected governor of the
state, and the indications are pointing
strongly to his election for a
third time as governor. Roland
Dickert, an especially bright mind
who has made a success as a railroad
man, and Elliott Evans who went
west and succeeded in railroading.
There is one thing about Elliott that
I always remember. In those days
it was the custom to have the boys
speak or declaim every Friday after
poon. iiilliott wouia inai\.e k wvuvtnient
to be absent every Friday afternoon
and when I got behind him
for his absence he said he could nor
make a speech, and really I think'
quit before the session was out 'be
cause he said he could not speak in 1
public. Somehow in that school we
did not take excuses unless they j
were mighty good, and all the boys;
iiad to do the things we put to them j
to do. Then there were the three'
Martin boys, George, James and Fos-i
ter. George and James died young,!
and Foster is still a very useful citi- >
zen of Newberry and has been in the 1
banking business and other indus-j
fr?r the advancement of the city, j
xClarence Hunter went to Texas manyj
years ago and I am told is getting)
along nicely in business. Wiiliam!
J)rayton Baxter, a son of Major J.;
VM. Baxter and bearing the name of;
his two forbears of sacred me.nory,!
William Nance and Drayton Ruther-j
ford, was a very bright mind but
somehow he did not like going to
school. He passed away in early
manhood. All the boys in this class
were from the town of Newberry ex-!
cept Frank Bynum who hailed fromj
Mavbinton and Roland Dickert who!
came from the Broad river section!
TVioro mnv have been I
oi tne tuuiH,v. v. _
others in this class but these are all j
I can recall just now and I am writ-;
ing purely from memory. Now,!
don't you think I have a right to feel
proud of these iboys and of their success
in life. Well, if you don't I do,
and I am glad to be able to say that
I had a little part in their training
when they were young, and I am
gratified at the success they have attained.

The State Board of Education
adopted the past summer books for
the use of the public schools but in
the adoption they left a good many
texts optional, that is they --adopted
what is termed a basal book, and
then an optional book, and that
means that a teacher may use the
basal or the optional book. It is the
desire of the county board of education
for this county that ?o far as
possible or practicable there be a uniform
text 'book in all the schools of
the county so that pupils gping from
one district to another would not
1 -P?v? .*c? U'O
have to change oooks. on iai
could we followed the books to be
used in the city schools of Newberry.
The State Board in its foreword
makes the following observations:
'"Extensive modifications of this
course are necessary in schools
taught by one teacher and in shortterm
schools. For details and suggestions
see Manual for Elementary
Schools, and Manual for High
"The State Board of Education
strongly recommends that no pupils
be expected or required to prepare
and recite more than five lessons Der
"Note: Texts marked basal and
texts marked optional afford teachn
ers freedom of choice between such*
texts on the same subject."
To assist teachers in this freedom
of choice and to assist in the making!
the use of books in the schools of the
county uniform the county board offers
the following suggestions as to
the texts to be used:

The purpose in recommending thei
books here mentioned is to have as
near uniform system and set of i
books in the rural schools as possi-i
ble so as to save cost and help the j
children who may move from one (lis-1
trict to another during the school j
term as is often the case. The state
board left a good many options and 1
xvhile the basal is recommended our
board thought some of the optional
basal were better adapted to the
schools of this county than the basal
and for that reason we have recommended
some of the optional (basal.
And in most cases they are the books
used in the city schools of Newberry.
E. H. Aull,
Superintendent of Education Newberry
The schools of the county are
soon to open the fail session. In
practically all the schools the teachers
have been elected and accepted
and yet tnere are a few schools
where the trustees have not elected
the teachers. This should be done at
once. I desire to remind all the teachers
who expect to work in Newberry
county that they must have state certificates
in order to get their pay
end that these certificates must be
record in my office. Where the I
certificate has expired it will be an
easy matter to have it renewed and
