NEWSPAPERS MAKE MEN
Many people imagine that the prominence of great
men is due entirely to their own genius. But its is not so.
In this age the most brilliant o? men would be practically
unknown except for the work of the press in following
their careers step by step and reporting them to the coun
try at large. Newspapers have been known to pick up
men of just ordinary intelligence and make them gover
inors, or place them in other offices of honor and respon
sibility. They are commonly known as favorites of the
newspaper. More often it is simply because they are will
ing to allow the paper to dictate certain policies and ap
pointments. But few men ever succeed in getting, into
public office against the hostility of their party press.
The press makes or unmakes them when it so desires.
It is not that the editor is a man of such superior intelli
gence that he towers above the rest of mankind. Far from
it. We of the fraternity claim to be no more than or
dinary humans who are trained in the arts.of observation,
analysis and dissemination. No public man is ever so per
fect but what the editor can unearth glaring flaws in his
career. It is the analyzing and disemination ;) these
flaws that puts him out of the running. This the editor
can do or not, as he desires.
On the other hand, every public official possesses cer
tain admirable traits of which *the public knows but little.
If the press keeps these things to the fore it is only a mat
ter of time energetic service when the official becom'es
what is known as a "made mian."
FotunatIely most editors are rather human. They
know the weaknesses of public men, but they do not ex
pect perfection in any one. They are content to give a fel-.1
low a fair show, and if he makes reasonably good they
boost him along. If not, th ey generally permit him to
gracefully retire at the end of his term, unless his acts are
such as to warant condemnation and exposure.
It is not the w\ill of the editor alone that decides these
things. It is the fact that the editor places his informa
tion before the peol)le and they render their own judg
ment. It is in this Way only that the press makes anad un
makes. Men But it does it, just the same.

Chicago, Dec. 6.-Union officials at
the close of the second ddy of the
strike of packing house employes, as
sertgd 6,000 more workers had joined
the strikers' ranks. in Chicago, while
the packers reported that between 90
and 95 'per cent of their men* were
working and that the places of strik
ers had been filled from the. hundreds
of unemployment applying for work.
While spokesmen for the packers
admitted that more employez had
joined the walk-out, they also asserted
that part of those that went out Mon
day had returned an dthat there was
no difficulty in hiring men. In other
packing centers of the country rep
re'sentatives of the "big five" packers
reported , that the strikers returning
to work while the officials of the
Amalgamated Meat Cutters and
Butcher Workmen of North' -America,
which called the strike, said the ranks
of the strikers were being augument
Union Chief's Statement
Cornelius Haynes, president of the'
meat workers, tonight said that 12,000
workmen were on strike here. He said
no definite figures were available for
other sections but that more men were
out than on Monday when . the union
estimated 29,000. workmen were on
strike outside Chicago.
Figures made public by the packers

100 LIVES LOST, IS REPORT
Berlin, Dec. G.-It is reported that
100 persons lost their lives today as
the result of the explosion of an oil
tank in the Nobel Dynamite Works
at Saarlouis, Rhenish Prussia. The'
works are burning.
SEX FAMIIAARIrY, DANCES AND
MOTION PICTURES ARE SCORED
Greenville, Dec. 6.-That the mod
ern dance is leading many to wreck
age and ruin, that the motion picture
industry is not seriously undertaking
its own reformation and its possibili
ties for good and also for (lire evil
are great, that familiarity between
the sexes among people of all ages
is increasing and that there seems
to be a breaking down of the finer
spiritual sensibilities among the peo
ples which permits of the discussion
of topics freely which would not have
been mentioned in society as recently
as six years ago--statemenis to this
effect and others regarding public
morals of today were made by Dr. R.
C. Granberry, of GalYney chairman of
a committee on social service and
public morals in a report to the State
Baptist Convention here today.
The convention opered its session
this morning and it will continue
through Thursday. Adoption of this
report on public morals, together
with a sermon tonight by the Rev. J.
Dean Crain, featurCd the three ses
sions of the day. Several hundred
Baptists from all parts of South
Carolina are jn attendance.
Dr. Granberry in his report said,
that he and his commit tee are not
pessimists because t hey believ'e in
.Jesus Christ stressedl the fact that.
much advancement in the right dlirec
tion is being miade in the present so
cial order. Regarding thle modern
dance, the motiomn pictures, t he re
lationship between the sexes and oth
er matters, howvever, he urged that
the time was at hand for the church
to take a hand. "I know that i tis
customary for church people to quiet
ly acqunesce in the dant-e situation,'"
he said, "bhut that must. change.'"
P roh ibi tion, t~he committee declared
is ai great success, nlot withstanding
t he fact that the light with the liquor
t rallic is not yet finishedc.
In creasing profanity and i mproper

Colds;, Fever atnd LaG ripp)e.
I's the muost speedy remedy
observance of th' Sabbath also were
discussed. Tie 'convention adopted
the repqrt of the committee.
At another point in the convention,
L. E.,Campbell, of Newberry, created
a sensation when in the midst. of
plea that laymen given more time
preaching, he said: "Let; the jadies
dress as they please. We are what
you lile. God bless you, let' quit
preaching so much about silk stock
ings, 'rouge and leg shows and preach
the Gospel of :Jesus Christ, which
will save us from all sin.i'
In his annual address, J. J. Law
town, of Hartsville, urged the neces
sity for faith, hope, religion, work,
economy and optimism iq working to
a, solution of present work problems.
Senator E. C. Ridgall, of Batesburg,
stated to the convention that ehe lay
men in the church are doing more
work today than ever before, and E.
P. Vandiver, banker, of Anderson, de
livered an interesting address along
Regarding the work of th'e wo'men
through the Woman's Missionary Un
ion Dr. William L. Ball, of Spartan
burg said', that the women are lead
ing Loth the laymen and the preach
ers, andl he parised them highly for
their efforts and for the results they
nip achieving. Mrs. J. D. Chapman,
of Anderson the State president, and
other officers were introduced. A re
port proposing that the Baptists of
North and South Carolina take charge
of the Spaulding Orphanage, at Kings
Creek, S. C., is yet to acted upon.
Follow up work in the Baptist
75 million campaign is to' be one of
the chief topics for discussion tomor
row. The convention late tolay voted
to appoint women as members of
boards of trustees of women's colleges
and academies in this State.
The Convention voted to investigate
the proposal that a two-acre grave
yard near Society Hill be purchased
and maintained as "God's Acre."
