While South' Carolinians maifjudily a
be proud of the activity manifested-in a
the State today in cotton manufacture, a
yet when euvreygo are turned to Otheir
lspheres of industridl activity We tind a
tibe contrast between them and cotton 0
manufacture quito' marked. In no e
other lines may the State be said to be t
doing what slhi' might easily do. The 8
great need of the State today along in
tiustrial lines is % proper realization i
and Uppreciation of the wealth of un t
i developed resources which sho has c
within her borders. Some of these are
unknoWn- to the vast injority of the t
people of the State while others, if a
known, are not appreciated by her'dwn c
people, and are unknown to outsiders, a
and, more than this, there is at pro c
sent no means by which either the I
people of the State or the people of t
the rest of the word may become ac- t
quainted with the opportunities for in- g
dustrial ,levelopment that lie idle in s
tIc Statu. Theio is need of some i
direct mueans of properly investilgating t
these resourees and calling the atton- I
tion of the public to them. An organ- o
ization with this special object in view I
is Ono of the greatest needs of thu 8
State to:day. Prof. Holmes of North a
Carolina has very recently caillti our 1
attention n.ost forcibly to what our V
sister Stato is doing to systematically
develop her resources, and has also
shown us how successfully this work is
I being accompiliA bed. A simuilar State
bureau sloi le be etablished in South I
The objects of such a survey would
be quito varied, and w4outi incItiude not
only a determination and i nvestiga
tion of the mineral resourct.s of tie
Stat-, tuch as her depo-its of iron,
old and other nii.rajo, because theo
are pi obably of coilm paratively small
value, but wouid give its attention
imiuch more largely to a number of
other lines of work that would mean
far more to the State thathhe devel
opinut of her mineral resources alone.
One of the imost prqsing question ,
before the peopeu of thb Stato today ib
that of securing better roads. A
bureau is neLI- to determine the dis
tribution of road building, materials in
tlhe Stato and to make tests of the dur
baliity of tneso materials before the
counties in a blind way ko ahead and
spend probably thousands of dollar"
putting the suit-ability of such ma
terials forroa. building purposes to
the test. G
Purther, a systematic guidance will

With the d v Aopmei.t of oltAr ind'us- o
tries, there is coming yearly a greate )
demaid for building btone, and quar- (1
ries ate being ueveloped that are indi- r
eative of an :it-euLry tiat should soon 0
be of large proportions. In many pot -
Lions of the State there are doubtlets I

while there are doubtless also many e
