MANNING, S. C., MARCH 6, 1918
EVERYBODY MUST WORK
This country has made some very successful "drives"
during the past year. There have been the two Liberty
Loan'drives, the Red Cross drive, the Y. M. C. A. drive
and others. But greatest of all, the 1917 drive for the
greatest development of war gardens the world has ever
seen. And the success of this drive is still plainly to be
seen in the great abundance of canned and dried fruits
and vegetables to be found in the homes of the land. There
is no doubt that these gardens have played a most import
ant part in our plan of food conservation, and are still
And now again the country is called upon for a record
production of food stuffs, an even greater if possible than
the last. The success of the garden campaign of last year
should spur us to renewed and greater efforts this year.
There should not be an idle garden or back yard in the
land. Every square foot of ground should be made to
yield its quota of the food that is to win the world war.
Now is the time to be planning these gardens. It is not
necessary to wait until the time comes for actual plant
ing. When that time arrives every person should have
planned the entire summer's program and should know
just what every foot of his ground is intended to produce.
Fences should be put in thorough repair, the ground
should be cleared of all obstructions and nothing but the
mecahnical working out of matured plans should remain
to be done when spring really opens.
One more thought while on this subject: Plan to not let
the garden interfere with the larger and greater work
each man and woman must do in this year of supreme en
deavor. To effect this, the garden should be made a
means of recreation, and should take the place of baseball,
football, tennis, golf, joy-riding and other amusements
it should be the solace of the jaded business man and the
Fired society woman. Yes, the women will find renewed
iealth and vigor from a few hours each day spent in gar
And then when we have these gardens growing and
producing, let us make a wise use of their products, that
we may conserve even more meats and wheat for our he
roes "over yonder," and our allies who are fighting by
their sides. "Garden sass" is an ideal summer diet.
We admire patriotism in the children. We are willing
they should be drafted into every activity wherein their
zeal and optimistic enthusiasm has such splendid results.
Let them sell baby bonds, push the Red Cross campaign
and engage in any other activity that will further our
cause in this great world war. But for their own. dear
sakes, let's have them regard it all as just a struggle for
the right. Hold before their little eyes the grand princi
ples that animate us, and keep well in the back-ground
the horrors that try our souls. Let us not permit their
young and innocent minds to become inoculated with the
poison of hatred. Time enough in after years to make
.plain to them the horrors of the conflict. Just now it suf
fices that their country needs their enthusiastic services.
The members of the boy's corn clubs, pig clubs, and the
girls' caninng clubs should be actively at work
these dlays, that the enthusiasm may not be perLmitted to
wane in the slightest degree. T~he work of these agen
ties never counted for so much as they will the coming
season. The great dtrgency of food conservation during
the coming year opens a field for the activities of these
'erganiizations never before offered them. Heretofore
their work has been largely as a matter of pride in super
ir achievement for achievement's sake. Now there is the
added incentive that every gain effected counts in the
final winning of the war. Each worker has the full know
ledge that his or her individual efforts are not only appre
ciated but urgently needed. This should spur them to
the effort to discount all former records. The young p~eo
pie of the land are exhibiting a spllenldid patriotism, and
inw may rest assured it is appreciated to the full by their

The town election passed off very
quietly here today, and very little op

ly opposition was Mr. Melvin Shirer,
who defeated Mr. Mack Plowden for
warden by a majority of 15 to 20
votes. The city officials for the en

Independent, with Messrs. Willie Mc

expected that the interest of the town
will be taken care of and that every
thing will go along smoothly. Here's
