NOTES Of INTEREST
FROM CI FMSON COLLECE
Clemson College, Oct. 31.-The
cross-country team is being whipped
into shape now and sore muscles and
stiff joints are now a thing of the
past. Prcfessor W. D. Reed of Mis
sissippi A. an:l M. College has Large
of the team this year. Prof. Reed
has had much experience with cross
country running and is putting out
some good men this year. From all
indications Clemson will have a win
ning team this year. A score of men
have reported for training anad they
are all being trained to run the three
and five mile races. Two meets have
been scheduled and, more are to be
arranged. Clemson will send a team
to the State meet on Thanksgiving
day and another team to the A. A. U.
meet in Atlanta, Ga., on the same day,
and, hence, must have two teams.
Clemson has already ,won the State
meet two years in succesison and if
we win this year the cup will be ours
permanently. But, Coach Reed says
he will have no second-string team
and any man makin gthe teams must
be able to show his heels to any of
Clemson was well represented at
the State Fair last week. The mem
bers of the college band, the football
squad, several members of the faculty,
many alumni, and several members of
the Junior and Senior Classes attend
ing. The Clemson exhibits this year
were numerous, and proved interest
ing and instructive to all who saw
them. Cadets were given the pri
velege of attending the Fair by hav
ing leave from Wednesday afternoon
until Sunday night. Cadet J. E.
Hodge, of Manning Route 1, was
among those attending. Cadet Iodge
returned to the college on Sunday and
reports a big time.
On Thursday of Fair week Clemson
played The University of South Caro
lina and the "Tigers" had a hard fight I
but finally won by a field goal which.
netted three p)oints. Carolina was
within one yard of Clemson's goal but
were unable to score. Clemson's score
came in the last two minutes of play.
Robinson, of Winnsboro, was success
ful in sending the pigskin through the
bars. Carolina defeated Clemson in
1920 and 1921, and the dope said
Carolina would win again this year
)but the Tigers demonstrated that
Clemson was coming back into her
old place in the football world. Clem
son has won from Carolina a total
of fiftoen times out of twenty-one,
Carolina winning five times and ty
ing once. Classes at Clemson were
suspended from 12 o'clock until three
and the game, play b yplay, was re
ceived by Radio. On Thursday night
the Clemson students celebrated with
a big bonfire on Bowman Field and
an apple scramble afterwards. Clem
son meets Georgia Tech in Atlanta,
on Saturday, November 4th and the
game promises to be a very interest
The October issue of 'The Chronicle'
the Clemson magazine, came out last
week and is up to its usual standard.
The Chronicle contains quite a num
ber of poems, essays, and short
stories and has bright prospects for
a very successful year. One of the
poems appearing in this issue was
written by Cadet E. D. Plowden, of
Jordan, an dis entitled "The Parting
Day." The poem follows:
Did you ever stop to think
glow beautifully the sun
Bade farewel Ito parting day
When it's work was done? '
flow it sank beneath the clouds,
Shedding rays of brilliant light;
Driving. off the glorious day,
And ushering in the night?
It hid it's face 'neat h cloudiedl fol,
Of skies in colors rich and rare;
Thew middlay's heat was changed to
And then't the ntight was in the air.
The evening star~ rose o're the hill,
The tintedl sky grew dlim and hare;
Soft, deep notes of the wvhippoowvill,
Rang from the creeks and filled the
Tlhe lonely, raiain t, full-orbed moon,
llegan to shed it's silvery light,
Andl this perfect dlay of .June
Slowly faded into night.

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
AND THE AMERICAN FARMER
The Republican Party has always
been the friend of the American farm
er. This has been a consistent at
titude on the part of this great poli
tical organization. The present Ad
ministration is not an exception. No
Congress in the entire history of the
country -has been in such complete ac
cord with the aspirations of the
American farmer, so sincere in every
effort to assist him, so successful in
legislation for his benefit so active in
his behalf, as the present Congress.
The agricultural interests of the na
tion were facing disaster. As an in
dustry agriculture was at a low ebb.
Credits were gone. The American
farmer was suffering a slow death by
financial strangulation. A Republican
Congress saw his plight, heard his en
feebled cries, and the result was a
series of laws whose beneficial in
fluences are becoming more apparent
every day. Already the American
farmer is filled with new hope, cheer
ed by new prospects, and ready to go
to work again under the encourage
ment of better days.
Before the Republican Party came
into power again on March 4th, 1921,
millions of pounds of wool and mutton
from Australia, great quantities of
corn from South America, and wheat
from Canada, had been dumped on our
markets. A Republican Congress had
attempted to stop this disastrous de
luge of agricultural imports by pass
ing an emergency tariff, but this was
vetoed by President Wilson. If an
adequate tariff had been imposed on
such importations after the signing
of the armistice, agriculture would
never have suffered such a terrific'
slump as was witnessed by the Ameri
can people. Wool 'became so cheap
that it was 'largely substituted for
cotton. Cotton in turn slid to the
One of the first acts of this present
Republican Administration was to re
enact the Emergency Tariff Law. It
was approved on May 27th, 1921.
Prices on wool and cotton. began to
move upward almost immediately. It
put a stop to the tidal-wave foreign
agricultural products. Our own pro
ducts began to take their places in the
American market, with the profit to
the producer commencing to improve.
The consumer was also benefitted.
Whatever has a tendency to make
farm production unprofitable natural
ly results in lessened production, a
smaller supply of food at the source,
and a consequent higher cost to the
consumer. With the increased pro
duction on the American farm under
the .protection of a Republican tariff
against foreign imports, came the
begiiniig of an era of prosperity for
the farmer, and a lowering of the cost
of living for the consumer.
The farmer is not only the nation's
gr-eatest andl most vital producer but
he is also the nation's greatest con
sunmer. The farming class is the
greatest single buyer in A merica of
manufactured produc ts of all kinds.
The American farmer is the largest

this condition must cease. Cotton

The government must help him to
market his products at a comfortable

money at a reasonable rate of inter
