Nos. 4 and ."? are of prime impor

The existence of more than one club
'.ithin the auine precinct presents a
difficulty in preventing tho overlapping
of vot< ri an t of territory, which is
met by GUtSKoStloh from Kershaw that
the primary elections be confined to j
ibe gurrai election voting places,
so that all the club rolls of a precinct
will Lc u:;:.c;?. tiled at tho same place,
where all the enrolled democratic res.
idents within that precinct can vote,

It is not known whether or not the
Bethelite High school team of Spar

grudge against the team representing
the Anderson High School but it cer
tainly did seem to yesterday. The
home hopes journeyed over to Spur
tanburg last night, confident that they
would romp ull over the Bethelite ag
gregation but it seems that some mis
take was made in their calculations.
Tba Uethelitc team shut out the An
derson team by a score of 7 to U.
However, the lads were undaunted,
and they telegraphed home lust night
to the effect that they would remain
In Spartanburg and play tlie Bethelite,
team today for two out of three. The
Anderson feam won from the B.. ti.
s. when the team came here some
time UKO and so the Bcorc now stands
1 and I. The winner of this after
