Columbia, Dec. 20.-The regular
annuanm,etingfof thq% ae f trus
tees of Clemson college" Wah held in
Columbia yesterday. This meeting
was scheduled for lastmonth, but was
delayed that more accurate and com
ilete reports relating to the work of
the instit'ution might be prepared.
Chief among the matters which occu
pied the attention of the board'yester
Adoption of recommendations by
the board of charities and corrections,
whereby free tuition was denied 156
of the 374 making application for
Authorization of President W. M.
Riggs to make application for Clem
son's admission into the reserve of
ficers' training corps.
Establishment of a boll weevil lab
oratory in the border counties of the
State in which the next cotton crop
is likely to become infested and the
engagement of two entomologists for
this fiele duty.
'Ph ward also took decisive action
in extending its plans to eradicate
hazing at the institution, by adopting
resolutiops, requiring a signed state
ment by applicant and parent or
guardian, that the studept will ab
stain from participation" in all forms
of hazing. The student also agrees
to withdraw voluntarily from the in
stitution, should the temptation to
discipline underclassmen prove too
tempting. The statements are filed
before the students will be admitted.
Services for an additional assistant
in the fertilizer analysis department
has been found necessary and the
board yesterday creater this chair.
C. F. Sheffield of Mississippi was se
lected for this place.
A bequest of $1,000 was accepted
from ,Mrs. Mary Cherry Doyle of
Seneca. This amount is to create
the George Cherry foundation, and
will be a permanent loan fund to
students from the Pendleton district,
embracing Oconee county and a por
tion of Anderson county.
During the meeting, T. S. Evans
appared representing the Seaboard
Air Line railway, offering a site near
McBee for the establishment of the
sand hill experiment station and in
viting the board to utilize a special
train over the road to inspect the
property. The proffer was declined,
as the institution has not available
resources sufficient to develop such a
venture within the immediate fu
ture, and also because the board is

The report of the secretary of the
State board of charities and corrdc
tions contained statistics relatives to
874 aplications for' State aid. The
request for 188 was sustained. By
a ruling of the''attprney general. 30

pense of a college education. Presi
dent Riggs emphasized yesterday that
the reference of thisl question to the
corrections board has a decidedly
wholesome influence, in' that the num
ber of students paying tuition, with
out application for State aid, was
practically doubled last fall.
Should Clemson be admitted to the
reserve officers' training corps, no
additional military duty will be im
posed upon the students except in the
junior ani senior years, and then
these duties would be wholly elective.
To those electing the special officer
training, a subsistence fee of $9 a
month will be allowed and one com
plete uniform outfit, which; approx
imates scholarship values.
The institution is having an exceed
ing good year, President Riggs said
yesterday. The total enrollment is
843, and the number of failures and
withdrawals is far below the average.
Another pleasing feature to the ad
ministration is the increased suport
which is coming in from the fertili
zer tax. The returns for the first six
months of hte present fiscal year to
tal the amount of $29,638.95 against
$18,906.90 for the cor ponding
period one year ago. , The first year
of the war fertilizer tax returns were
reduced $121,000, with the falling off
last year amounting to $105,000.
The high cost of living is also mak
ing itself felt at the college. With
the third quarter beginning February
3, studerats will pay $9 a month board
against $8 previously.

terday were: President Riggs; Alan
Johnston, Sr., Newberry, chairman of
the board; B. R. Tillman, A. F.Lever,

for its passage opened the way for
-the resolution in both houses, the
House judiciary committee having
taken similar action two weeks ago.
In the House it is proposed to appeal
soon after the Christmas recess to
the rules committee for a special rule
to bring the resolution before the
House for a vote within a prescribed
time. Champions of the resolution in
the Senate can resort to no such par
liamentary expedients and must take
their chance of getting the amend

ator Sheppard, will urge its conside
ration at every opportunity.
The Senate committee amended the
wording of the resolution, but its ef
fect is unchanged and would prohibit
the manufacture, importation and
sale of liquor for beverage purposes
in the United States.
Even the most ardent advocates of
the amendment do not anticipate vic
tory at this session, as a two-thirds
majority of both houses is required.
But they do expect an increased ma
jority for the amendment in both
houses, and ultimate victory in the
Sixty-fifth Congress is their hope.
