VOLUME LVIII, NUMBER 86. NEWBERRY, S. C., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 31, \D?2. TWICE A WEEK, $2.00 A YEAR
ARMISTICE DAY f
COL. J. M. JOHNSON TO BE ORATOR
Big Preparations Under Way for Fitting
and Appropriate Observance
of Historic Event
Several intimations have been giv- (
en the p-'blie regarding Armistice j
day in Newberry, but as yet no defi- '
nite program has been given out and
just now a defini ? list of the things i
which will take place on the tenth of j
November can not be be given but an
outline will suffiice to interest all
those in and near this city who will
take part in this celebration.
Some will wonder why the celebration
will be given on November the
10th while Armistice day rightfully
falls on the 11th. This is easily explained
when you know that so many
of the fellows who take part in the
celebration work (clerk) on Saturdays
and as the 11th this year falls
on Saturday the local post of the legion,
out of deference to those who
will be busy on that day Jtave moved
forward the local celebration and are
planning a spank up celebration,
which will eclipse any yet attempted
and probably be a guide for those in
Fittingly the legion is behind this
celebration but to get the full cooperation
of the entire community they
appointed a committee and that committee
then asked the various organizations
of the city to meet with them
and discuss the event and as a result
of their request two fine joint committee
meetings have been held at
y which many of the plans were gone
over and a tentative program adapted.
Almo3t without exception all of
the organizations are cooperating in
this affair and the success of same is
assured, and the legionnaires appreciate
the fact that they have the en- ;
tire community with them and ready
to help them in their undertakings.;
Another cooperative angle of the Ar- j
mistice day celebration is that the ,
' two county agents, Miss Berrie and
Mr. Mills, have been invited to the
meetings and the phns arranged are
such that ' the #iarge crowd which
comes here for the parade and other
things will be given an opportunity
to visit the county fair which will be ,
in progress in the i-csrion nan on ine (
9th, 10th and 11th. The plans are to
make it doubly interesting to visit
New-berry during the fair with espec- (
ial emphasis on coming on the 10th,
for that is.the day when most will be
doing and those tfho make this place
their mecca on the 10 th will have
very few idle moments from the time
they arrive until they depart.
Just to give you an idea of what
will take place on Newberry's Armistice
day, I will mention a few of the
details which are assured. ,First will
come the parade, in which more than
a thousand school children will form
in the line of march. In .ddition to .
the students of the city schools invitations
will be given to the trustees
of the county schools and if they see i
fit to furnish transportation for their
school they will be asked to form in
thp line of march and it is certain
that many of the trustees will see fit
to bring: in their school in order to .
p? " their :espects to the service men
of this -county who will gather together
on that day to celebrate the
day which meant so much to all the
world back in 191S, when the hopes
of all lay with the khaki clad boys t
overseas. Of course the former ser-:
vice men will, occupy a prominent1
part in the parade, as well as members
of the Woman's auxiliary, civicorganization
of the city and the veterans
of other wars. Immediately
after the parade, which will form at
ten a. m. will come the services in
the opera house. Colonel J. M. Johnson.
who led the engineers of the
Rainbow division, ot Marion, wm
make the principal address of the day j
and those who have had the privilege
of hearing Colonel Johnson will
know that the lejrion could not have
invited -a man better a-'.Ie to make
an Armistice day address and d-.itt'n:less
the oper* house will be filled
long before the clock strikes eh-vo:;.
Soecial music for this service is boin?
worked up and in all probability
there will be a musical program furnished
such as is seldom seen in a
city of this size and those who enjoy
lino music need have no fears about!
the Armistice day music. Following j
the exercises at the oper.i house will J
come the dinner for the former ser- J
vice men, which will be served in the '
handsome show room of .Mc Hardy :
Mower, was placed at the disposal of
the auxiliary, when it was learned ,
that the Legion hall would be filled
with exhibits. Plates will be laid fori
more than three hundred and every
former service man who comes will
be given a bouteous dinner such as '
the women of Newberry are noted
for serving. Already the details of j
this "feed" arc being worked out and
if the public knew what a job it is to ;
prepare such a feast they would say
it takes lots of work to work out the
necessary detail?, but rest assured
that the ladies will have an abund
ance or gooa inmgs hj a;m i- v. m. ,
be served it a most tempting manner, !
with i setting: of ur.uusual charm. '
Charming young ladies will do the '
serving1 and nor.e of them will inform
the ex-soldier, when he asks for
"seconds/' "fini, monsier." During
the dinner a short, snappy talk will
be made and probably a song or two
by entertainers, while Dn. John Setzler
will probably lead the "bunch'' in
singing some of the songs which can .
only be sur.g to perfection by former ,
soldier. If any one who will not have
the honor cf attending, doubts that
the boys will have a good time lot
them peer through MeHardy Mow- ;
er's handsome plate glass windows
and be corvinced that a royal good
time is being enjoyed by all present.
After the dinner there will two
forms of entertainment: First, for,
those who like foothill, the legi-on :
arranged with the college authorities
to move up the Erskine game from
the 11th to-the ltflh so that the'Armistice
day crowd would have an oni
pcrtunity to see a footbail scrap. The :
college powers that be very kindly ;
consented to do so and at 3:15 the1
Indians will tackle Erskine and
doubtless the splendid new stands at,
the athletic field will be filled with
those who came here to celcorate
Armistice Realizing that not all
would care to go to he football game
the legion arranged to show motion
pictures in the open house in the afternoon;
pictures of special interest
during the celebration and those who
prefer pictures to football will have
a treat at the opera house. The program
for the afternoon will bo an- '
nounced later, as well as other
events not yet definitely arranged, i
Then in the evening the local post
will present a fine local talent play
called "Sittin Pretty, which is being
directed by that director of no small
ability, Dr. John B. Setzler. This
play promises to be a fitting1 climax
to a really interesting day 2nd those
who journey to th's city on November
the tenth will find something: arranged
to suit every taste and the
hours in 'vhich you are not being: oth-!
erwise entertained you v. ill find picasure
in visiting: the county fair and
poultry show (which are, perhaps
forerunners of annual events of !ii:e
nature) and after that the "tempting
displays of seasonable merchandise
will lure many to make purchases
from the local merchants, whose
stores ;ire brim full of fall and win- j
Nothing- has been said about decor- ]
atior.s, but these details are bein^
worked out by a very competent
committee of women and they plan to ;
have the red. white ar.d blue display- 1
ed ali over the city. so that Xewberry !
will assume a reai holiday air and the '
visitor.- will sro away feeling th.it this
is the city that does things and doe?
them up right.
The different members of the committees
will bo very glad to furnish .
information regarding any details of
the fair. For that part whi.-h pertains,
to the county fair Miss Berrie and .
Mr. Mills are in possession of the :
complete plan and either or both of .
thfm may be found at the rhamber of ;

of the Newberry County chapter of
the American Red Cross, to hear reports
of committees, to make plans
for the coming year and to elect officers.
If the interest manifested in those
annual meet;ngs were accepted as a
criterion of the interest on the part
of the general public in the work of
the Red Cross the executive conimite'*
of your chapter would have cause
to feel discouraged. But judging from
our experience in the past we are
constrained to bc-licvo that such is
the cise. And, yet, we can ntt help
but feel somewhat disappointed when
an organization that is counywidc,
and after extensive oersonal invitations,
newspaper advertisements and
solicitations, we can not bring together
more than 25 nersons.

NEW ATHLETIC FIELD TO BE
OPENED NOVEMBER 4
' All the Old Boys and Girls Arc Expected
to Be Mere?Citadel and
Newberry to Fight it Out
When the Citadel Bull Dogs trot
' out on the new athletic field of New'
berry college next Saturday, it will
! be the first time that an eleven of
: that well known institution has ever
been seen here. Some of the most
exciting basketball games ever wits
nesses in the college gymnasium have
been fought out by the local collegii
ans and the cadet's, but not until this
j year have the people of this commu
niv had the opportunity to see the
! elevens of the two institutions clash
Both Citadel aitd Newberry-have
been defeatd by the strong Furman
team, and by practically the same
margin. The Bull Dogs won from
the U. S. Marines, who defeated the
; Indians by a lone touchdown. But,
| on the other hand, "Dode" Phillips,
j the great former Erskine star, has
i pickcd Newberry to finish the season
two places ahead of the Citadel
among the colleges of this state. Furthermore,
the fact that MacLean's
men will be playing their first game
on the new field before a home crowd
: consisting not only of students and
i towns r>?onle but also returning: al
umni, ex-students and friends, will
"lend strength.to them. The return of
Frank Shealy to the line-up will
strengthen the somewhat, inexperienced
line, which is naturally improving
As has already ibeen announced,
this will- be home coming day, and
. the occasion has been widely advertised.
The students are planning to
; have one, or perhaps, two bands on
'hand to accompany them in the sing:
I ing of the college songs and to play
j other selection. Cheering practice
i; will be held during the week. The
new field has not yet been christened,
but a name will be chosen for it
