It is evident from information
ceived at the Sumter Chamber
Commerce that the citizens of
Turbeville and Douglas township s
tions of Clarenilon county are gett
restless and will soon start the mo
mIet a lu voe into Sumter coul
Several of the citizens of those s
tions have been in conference wv
Secretary Reardon about the prop
ed annexation of that territory wh
has been talked about for the I
five years. It seems that the pron
manner in which the Sumter coul
board of commissioners carried ,
the guarantee made to the Pinew<
and Calvary township people ab
putting the roads of that sect
into good shape, together with
splendid work done on those roi
have made a good impression on
good citizens of Tu'rbeville,
During 1920 a delegation of citiz,
from Turbeville met with the St
ter Channer of Commerce direct
and an agreement was entered i
which satisfied the Turheville e
zens. Later there was a meeting
the Sumter .county board of comn
sioners hieldl at Turheville on the <

It is not important that Clarendon
should elect a lady to the Legislature.
llowever estimable a lady candidate
may be, however attractive, the neces
sity for plain common sense suggests
to every voter that the Legislature is
a place of serious business and should
have a membership composed of rep
resentatives chosen solely because
they really represent the county.
I am not opposed to woman suffrage,
but I am opposed to canvassing the
County to elect a lady just to give
Clarendon the distinction of having
the first woman represuntative in the
Legislature. That is worth nothing
What Clarendon needs is more level
headed business men in the Legisla
