That is a pretty good list of names
to petition to leave the wagon yard
I? as it is below the old court house and
% they are good citizens as well. The
only and main trouble about the matter
is the petition comes too late. It
should have been sent- to the lasc
legislature. The act passed at thai
session not only gives authority, but
directs the highway commission to
set aside this lot for a park and for
a monument to the veterans 'of the
world war. Of course $here is a condition
aoout keepingfup the streets
and a hitching place,, but after th?
(lot has been usea xwr * yam _
monument what good will it do to
have the condition of reverting to the
county. A park would look mighty
nice down there but it is not the place
for a monument of any k:nd.
The highway compression has commenced
the work of buKding the road
from Mr. John C- Neel's down by
Union school house and on to Jolly
Street, a road greatly, fieeded. There
are some mighty bad creeks and bottoms
to cross, and where a road is
greatly needed. The .next road is to
Tabernacle out from Jalapa. That is
very much needed ^lso. And then
the road out from the- Pomaria high
way by" Bethlehem church to Zion
school and on over to the Broad river
???<? And that too is greatly need
I - ed. Ill fact sonie of these cross
roads are really of^jpore help than
some of the highways, but we would
not abolish any of tliem. We have
made wonderful progress in road
building in Newberry county during
tbe last couple years.
That was a very gracious act on the
part of the local post of American legion
in sending a committee to each
school in the county^cpi Tuesday, and
presenting a flag, ant^ explaining the
various courtesies due the flag, and
Kow and when to make the salutes. It
will look mighty nice to see a United
. States flag floating at each school

; - and it should be along either side of
Scotts creek with a "drive way on either
side and nice tt^s planted along
pj the banks of the^rrck and flower
gardens and walks and so on. But
the first civic improvement that Newberry
should unite in making is the
improvement of Rosemont, and make
it Rosemont the beautiful.
A LITTLE ABOtfiP OURSELVES
We feel that we should say a little
about ourselves. Not much just now,
but if things go as we feel they will
go with us, then we will crave the indulgence
of our readers for just another
word some time, very soon.

States flag, and in most of the schools,
the flag pole was ready and the flag
was hoisted and will wave every
school day while the school is in session.
It will be nice to see the flag
unfurled at every school house in the
county. Where the pole was not ready
I hope the trustees and the teachers
will see to it that the flag pole is
put up at once and that the flag is
hoisted. A good suggestion made
by Dr. Knotts is for the teacher to
appoint some boy each week to act as
color bearer for that week, and make
him responsible for the proper care
of the flag and for seeing to it that
the flag is unfurled every morning
and that it is drawn down and furled
every afternoon when school is out,
and that it is properly taken care of
