AMERICAN LEGION
PASSES IN REVIEW
Distinguished Men March With Their
Buddies.
THREE HOUR PARADE
Demonstration -Probably Greatest of
Kind Veterans Will Ever Have
at Convention. ,
Kansas City, Nov. 1.-Under a bril
liant autumn sky and through crowds
so dense that they repeatedly surged
through the police lines, the American
Legion passed.in review today before
distiriguished military and naval legd
ers of France, Great Britain, Italy and
Belgium, ranking officers of the United
States army, navy and marine corps.
The distinguished visitors, Marshal
Foch of France, Admiral Beatty of
Great Britain, General Diaz of Italy,.
Lieutenant General Jacques of Bel
gium, and the Anerican representa
tives of national defense, General
Pershing, Admiral Hugh Rodman, U.
S. N., and Maj. Gen. John A. LeJeune,
commanding the marine corps march
ed with their "buddies" of the legion
from Convention hall, where the pa
rade was formed, to the reviewing
stand, a distance of ten blocks. Then
they turned into the reviewing stand,
where they stood while the legion
thousands passed by.
Marshal Foch spoke of how much he1
had been impressed by the dignity and
beauty of the long drawn pageant.
"It shows," he said, "the thing-that
war has done. It has brought out
through suffering that whic is dig-;
iified and strong and beautiful in
men's souls. It as done that for us
and for you and for all who fought
with us in the long struggle. It was
that dignity and strength of soul
which I saw today in these marching,
comrades 6f mine. Coming to Ameri
ca has enlarged my vision. I have
found it necessary to see things on a
bigger scale. Today wias beautiful."
Record of Years
The parade was probably the great
est demonstration of its kind the le
gion will ever have as it brought to
gether again the great leaders of the'
war and approximately 40,000 veter
ans who streamed by several hundred
thousand spectators.
Men in civilian clothes marched
shoulder to shoulder with those who
had again donned their uniforms. The
old spirit of discipline and training
was evident throughout the parade as
the veterans strode along in platoon
formation and snapped salutes to the
reviewing officers.
The allied leaders remained in the
procession until the reviewing stand
was reached. There taking places,
they found a distinguished company
including Vice President Coolidge andl
governors of several states. Marshal
Foch and General Pershing arrived
first. In their party was Capt. Eddie
Rickenbacker, the American flying ace
They were followed closely by General
Diaz and General Jacques, with Ad
miral Earl Beatty and Admiral Rod
man not far behind.
The officers had hardly time to set
.tle themselves before they were com
pelled to salute the colors flying in;
front of motor cars bearing the thirty
five congressional medal of honor men
an( the parade had oflicially begun.
The state delegations moved past in
alphabetical order, and alpiost three
hours elapsed from the time the Ala
bama contingent swung 1)ast intil the
last man of the Washington state
posts had receivedl the salute 'of his
former commanders.
Another feature of the day wits the
dedication of Kansas City's liberty
memorial, being built i'n honor of the
city's sons who fell in the great war.
Thousands of American Legioi
members, visitors, citizens, dlistin
guishe leaders from allied countries
and h.gh ranking officers of the,
United States army and navy, includl
ing General Pershing, joined in the
dledication service.
The mronorial is a great column
to be rearet. on the crest of a hill on'
t'3union station plaza.
A number of representatives of the
G~randl Army of the Republic, United
Confederate vcterans and Sp)anish
War veterans marched unider Kansas
City bands, helped by a G. A. R. file
and drum corps, while Florida had
three Confederate veterans in its
ranks.
.There wvere 40 marchers from Flor
ida.
Georgia had many marchers, com
manded by James L. Fort of Ameri
cus.
North Carolina hadj 100 representa
tives, while Ohio attracted attention
with approximately 1,000 marchers.
Rhode Island hiad 150. men andl
South Carolina about 350. Tennessee's
125 were led by Jere Cooper, the pres
ent state commandler.
Two of Virginia's 50 legionnaires
imnpersonatedl George Washirngton and
Roert E. Lee.
The convention laid aside business
today for the annual parade after
receiving Marshal Foch and General
Pershing at a brief morning session.
No business was transacted but
tonight the thommittee was putting in
final shape their reports to be sub
mitted tomorrow.
With the election of officers and
the (disposal of a number of questiorgs
tqmorrow doubt was expressed that
adjournment could be taken at noon
as scheduled.

thority of the recently enacted

AN APOLOGY
The Manning Times was greatly
imposed on last week when they print
ed an item sent in by a party, who
has in the past sent in many items
that were greatly appreciated. This
item read that "Messrs. Dave Wilson
and Ruby Quick had gone to Cuba to
reside." As we were not familiar with
the names of either parties we added
the Messrs. ourselves thinking prob
ably Ruby was a nickname or .abbre
viation for some other name. Our
attention was called to this item sev
eral times Wednesday night and we
then found that the item was a piece
of spite work sent in with the inten
tion of doing these innocent parties
unmentionable harm. Mr. Wilson
was a reputable merchant of Paxville
for some time and Miss Ruby Quick
was a clerk in his store. Miss Quick
is a young lady of many lovable quali
ties and stood very high in the esteem
of the people of Paxville and also of
all those who know her. She is now,
and has been for several months hold
ing a responsible position with a large
concern in Charlotte, N. C.
As to the party vho sent in this
item we are asking them to send us
an apology for this miserable and vile
attempt to ruin the character of lion
orable people. There is a law that
covers the offense of giving false in
formation to newspapers and we ad
vise this party to send us an apology
immediately.
We sincerely regret the printing of
this item and take this means of
apologizing both to Mr. Wilson and
Miss Quick.

RED CROSS ROLL CALL
November 11th to Thanksgiving
The time has come to renew your
membership in the Red Cross. These
are "hard times" you say; and so they
are. No one doubts that. But that
is all the more reason for a continued
support of the work. There will be
more suffering from poverty during
this witer and the ensuing year than
most of us have ever known. For lack
of means many will fail to call upon
a doctor when in real distress, and
thus our Red Cross Nurse will be
neeled more during 1922 than ever
before.
Her work for next year will natural
ly be along thi lines she has pursued
during the pre sent year. The follow
ing figures givo a bare outline of her
work for the r ast ten months:
No. of scholsh inspected -..___.24

of this number, 869 had defective

last Saturday evening at a delightful
lallowe'en Carnival in Cothran's

was fittingly decorated with witches,
black cats, bats and pumpkins and
there were witches and ghosts around
everywhere. The lights were burning
dimly, encased in queer colored
shades. The guests numbering about
60 were met at the door by a ghost
(Fred Chewning) and when once on
the iaside there was plenty to keep
them all amused. Besides side shows,
there was apple bobbing, peanut races,
etc. The crowd was divided into
groups and each group was requested
to get up1) some sort of stunt for the
entertainment of the crowd. The
group that represented the faculty of
the Manning School was noted to be
the best stunt. The witch, (Mrs.
Luce) who served the brew was kept
busy the entire evening.

MANNING BANKS STILL
HAVE SONE WHEAT SEED
What does it profit a man to ov
a crop of 20c or even 50c cotton, wher
to do it he has to impoverish his lanm
as well as, Apend all or nearly all his
cotton dollars for grain, hay an<
fertilizers.
For over fifty years the South has
absolutely been drained regularly of
the billions of dollars that have com<
into it in payment for cotton; beer
drained of this fabulous sum to pay
for food and grain products that
should have been grown on th(
South's own acres. This is what kepc
the South poor as a section; keeps th<
States composing it poor; keeps th(
individual cotton grower poor when
he ought to be the weajthiest farmei
in the country.
Let us look the matter squarely ir
the face. Its a fact that the farmer
in the South who grows enough grair
and hay to see him through the year
is the exception. The farmer who ha
grain and hay enough to , see hin
through and a surplus to sell in town
has been until recent years one ou;
of many.
We sweat and toil all through the
long summer to grow cotton. Sup
p)ose we do grow it and sell it for a
good price; where does that cottor
money go? Largely to States like
Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and others foi
graid, hay and meat, yet with goo.
seed of good varieties, intqlligent cul
tivating fertilizing South Carolina
nd other Southern States need ash
nio odds of those States farther North
in grain and hay production. Th<
time to begin stopping this financial
ram in now and the First National
Bank, The Bank of Manning and The
[Ionic Bank and Trust Co., want tc
ielp by furnishing at cost Wood's
best selected wheat seed which is
ready for delivery by Mr. F. P. Ervin
it his warehouse on Dinkins Street
Price $2.50 per bushel.
HIALLOWE'EN PARTY
One of the best and most attractive
)arties of the season was that given
)y the Presbyterian Church at the
ld 5-10 and 25c stand on last Mon
lay evening. The place was beautiful
y decorated with autunim leaves, moss,
ine tree broughs, jack-o-lanterns and
>ther hallowe'en decorations.
As the guests entered they were
.tshered over to a table presided over
>y Mrs. 1. 1. Appelt to register, then
:old to move on anji mix with the
)ther "spirits" of the evening.
After most of the guests had arriv
ad,a chord was struck on the piano as
i signal for each guest to get his or
artner for the grand march, this be
ng led by Misses Sue Sprott and
Larolyn Plowden.
While the guests were assembled on
he left hand side of the hall, Misscs
UInhaffey, Tora Bagnal, Netta Levi,

ames were being played, the "witch"
ffiss Corinne Barfield sitting ini her
itit brewed her tea and told the for
ines of the guests.
Near the close of the evening the
adies were told to go into the back
oom. Arriving there, they were
,iven strips of paper with numbers
>rnted oti them to be pinned around

1 a table and hold their arms up
ugh so that the men on the other
