the Lone Wolf river, was flanked orx

fought, and Vice Admiral Albert

'sent him overseas and brought him

Sergt. York's Speech.
When it came York's turn to stand
up and address the diners he showed
his modest simplicity:
"I guess you all understand that
I'm just a soldier and not a speaker,"
he said. "I'm just a soldier boy-but
I want to thank the society and Gen.
Duncan, and I want you all to know
that what you all have done for me
is highly appreciated and I never shall
forget it. I thank you very much."
. Round of Festivities.
Today was one round of festivities
for Sergt. York. From morning until
long after his "regular bed time" he
was hurried about the city in taxi
cabs, touring cars and limousines. lie
was shunted from one place of inter
est and one reception to another un
til "eating time" at the Waldorf-As
toria gave him a breathing spell. Then
he announced modestly, and with no
offense intended, that all day long he
had wanted to $lo "just one thing

"That's one place I sure do want
to see," he sighed tonight.
At dinner Sergt. York was hailed as
the soldier "who has distinguished
himself above all men in the war, in
the achievement of the greatest indi
vidual deed in history."
Joseph Cummings Chase, who was
sent by the W'ar Department to "paint
the portraits of all the generals in the
army and Sergt. York," pointed to
what a fine thing it is to see "Gen.
Duncan sitting beside Sergt. York,"
and Gen. Duncan said he was proud
to have at his side the "most distin

"Sergt. York's deeds are of the
character that go down in history
and make our boys patriots in time
of stress," continued Gen. Duncan.
"lie is not only a very unpretentious
soldier, but an unassuming, modest
man. his achievement was the most
outstanding act of gallantry, not only
that this world war ha:- produced, but
that I ever heard of. Ile is not only
modest absolutely, but unabashed, un
afrid in the presence of any gather

'The first words of the German

"A merican!" said Serpt. York.
"Good Lord!" exclaimed the major.
lI.'TE TO T'IR' 't(ti
SIRE IN SOUTH CAROLINA
Clemson College, May 26.-"Just so
lone' as our people buy grade and
scrub bulls, just so long will live
stock lag; and we will have scrubs
for our trouble and lose money- in
the cattle business," advises W. J.
Sheely, animal husbarainian of the
Extension Service, who feels that it
should be a misdemeanor for a man
to offer a bull for sale for breeding
purposes unless it is registered.
There is a growing demand for good
breeding cattle in South Carolina. This
de:.mn: has been brought about by
the high cost of meat animals and
meat products, and by the desire of
our people to change into a safe
rounded system of farming. The com
ing of the cotton boll weevil has has
tened this demand for breeders; and
the passing out of the tick has left
the field clean for good pure-bred cat

Some of our breeders are taking ad
vantage of this situation and are feed

and furnishing the farmer wvith pure..

Other clever' men (tradlers and
bushwhackers) also have sized up the
situation andl have shipped in eulls
and infdrior animals andl are sedling
them as "pure-bred but not regis

money, and they care nothing for the
developiment of the livestock industry.
Any aimal that carries the color and

It has been shown that when a
pure-bred beef bull is used wvith a
head of 20 cows the increased value
of the first calves at a year 0old will
more than pay for a good registered
bull. Since the bull is half the herd
andl more, it is good business always
to select a bull that is bet teir individ
uail than the cowvs he is to be bred
to. In the same proportion; as the
bull is better than the cows, the
calves will be better than their moth
ers;bu if the' bull is inferior' to the
cows, in the same proportion wvill the
calves be inferior to their mothers.
It follows then that we' can't afrord to
use a grade or scrub bull even
though he be given tom us; for his
calves wvill be too inferior and scrubby
