MANNING, S. C., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1919.
Now they say Paris gowns are more daring than ever. But seeing is
believing, and-where are they?
It's (ruite aristocratic to take your tea and coffee straight now, you know.
Only the vulgar minded seek to cut a dash with a lump or two of sugar.
COMMUNI''Y SPIRIT '
It requires riny people to make up a community, and in that community
atre many shades of religious and material beliefs. It stands be reason that
there is and will always he much variance of opinion.
Never are two people found whose views are identical on every subject
nor even on any subject. Somewhere th dividing line is found, and there
the community trouble begins.
(Cach of us is prone to think himself right and all others wrong. It is
human nature and will always be so.
But there is a common groundl upon which all may meet, a forum fron
which the community spirit may be developed to the highest degree. That i:
the arena of free speech and public discussion of community affairs.
Where many :ire gathered together and each gives his views as he see;
them, the majority is reasonably sure to arrive at a proper conclusion on an,
ubject. concerning our local welfare.
Such i course might be employed to good advantage 'i this community.
The craniums of our local people are filled with excellent ideas for ou
collective advancement.. All that is required is an opportunity for them t
''OO M UCIf STANI)ING PAT.
The policy of "standing pat" may be an admirable one at times, but i
'the present industrial upheavel it is apparently being carried to extremes.
The steel strike is a fair illustration.
,1udge Gary in the beginning assumel a sphinxlike attitude, refused t
mfleet. the labor people for a conference, and has since been standing pat.
The strike leaders are in a defiant mood and are also standing pat.
The public is holding the bag and is wondering if a time will ever con
\'hen it. can let loose.
The strikers may be right in tying up the great steel industry of ti
IUnited States, or they may not--as you see it.
.udge Gary may be justified in his silent defiance, or he may not----tha
I!so, according to your views.
But one thing is certain. Between the two elements a great intern
Ni1nat industry is at a standstill, and it will require a long time to recove
she ground that is being lost.
.ludge Gary should come down fron> his Iifty perch and talk with I
wojRrnrkmen. It he is too proud to meet them face to face he might delega

naval committee, interrogated Senator
Warren, of Wyoming, chairman of the
