RAISE A COLT" SLOGAN.
The Intelligencer wishes to call at
tention to a grave mistake being made
in many sections of the State in selling
horses and mule* to agents for ship
ment to the war countries. Several
car loads of farm animals have al
ready been shipped from this and ad
joining counties, and while they will
bring those who sell a little ready
cash, it is a bad policy. They will be
badly needed by the farmers, and it
will be found thai the matter of re
placing them ?will bo one of difficulty,
and horses juid mules will sell to the
farmers when they have to buy again
at a greatly advanced price, or we do
not correctly read tho signs of the
Instead of selling their work ani
mals our farmers should bo trying
their hand ut raising horse and mule
colts. Now, if Anderson and adjoining
counties raised more horses and muics
than they need for their own purposes
there would be some excuse for selling
so many, but till tnls Is done there
should be no more sales made. It is
a safe bet that these buyers have
exhausted the large stock farms out
west before coming South, and it can
thu3 be readily seen that the price of
!>rn? antmuls will go up as the price
of whe.1t has risen. It is a part of
economy and good business Judgment
to hold on to the horses and mules
of the country.
As a slogai. to take the place of the
foolish ''Buy-a-Uale" slogan* of a few
weeks ago, let us f start this one:
"Raise a Colt." On a recent visit to
Clemson College we saw several very
fine colts being raised there, and we
were told that a mule colt could be
raised to work at a cost of not more
than $100. Of course, this means that
there must he good pasturages and'
business methods employed in attend
ing to them. How many members of
the "Raise a Colt" campaign can we
enroll in Anderson County?
"THE TRENTON ID*EA."
The card of Chairman Hamraett
calling attention to the necessity for
liberal subscriptions for the support
of the chamber of commerce was
timely, and we trust has resulted in
material increase in the amounts sub
scribed by many. If the chamber of
commerce is to do its greatest and best
work it must not be hampered by a
lack of funds. As suggested by Mr.'
Haromett, debt and ' financial strin
gency will defeat the ends for which
the organization is striving. An active
rhnmher is very much needed Just now,
more so, porhnps them ever before.
It occurs to Th? Intelligencer that
Ulis would be a good time to institute
the "Trenton Idea" and extend the
membership of the organization be
yond the limits of the city. There are
muny good and able men outstde the
clly who would make valuuhle mem
bers, und whose duca would ko far
towards keeping up the efficiency of
tho, work. Then, too, the work of the
chamber of commerc e should be ex
tended, und there are many county
wide projects that should engage at
tention. True, these have been pro
moted, but why not have some mem
bers from the rural districts to help
push them along? We puggest "The
(LKMKON AS A MILITA It Y
President Uiggs told the editors at
the recent conference at Clemson Col
leg*' that he wished them to offer any
suggestion or criticism that came lo
mind as to the management of the col
lege. The editor of The Intelligencer
does not wish to he classed as a critic
of this splendid institution, and mo
saw much there to commend, and lit
tle that could be criticised. We shall
offer one small suggestion which we
believe would add to the efficiency of
the college, and would create a bet
ter impression upon the observer, and
have a better effect upon the student
body. We would like- to see Cletmnrr
t'ollege more military.
This college is a military college,
and as .such has the services of an
army olncor as' commandant. In the
man the military features are ob
served, but there are many Hi tie
things done that are not strictly mil
itary. For instance, cadets are allowed
to wear citizen overcoats, and a lew
cadets may wear them while many do
not. The cadets do not* respond as
promptly to military commands as
strict military discipline demands. In
/lurching at attention the ranks are
not kept as well "closed up" U3 they
.might he. and one cadet was Been
marching into chapel with his hands
in his pockets. So far as we saw, this
was not corrected. Marching into the
dining hall they were allowed to fall
out of ranks, and the marchers to
class rooms did not keep strict order.
We are not calling attention to these
things in a fault finding way, ' hut
simply to afford a reason for a sug
gestion we shall make.
We would 8ugge3t that strict, mil
itary discipline bo enforced, and that
cadet officers require strict obedience
to nil. commands, thus placing Clem
son College on a par with other mil
itary institutions. As a further sug
gestion we would like to see alt pro
fessors and officials of the college in
uniform. This would add* greatly to
the appearance of the corps and to
the neatness of the dress. It would
be uniform, and would not be more
costly thaq citizens clothes are. ; We
.feel sure that the commandant will
agree with us that these suggestions
arc worthy consideration.
In a recent address on the military
college, Col. O. J. Hond, superintendent
or the Citadel said: ,. ' ^X-V-l
"The invaluable lessons of prompt
and cheerful obedience, of consistent
punctuality, or orderliness-.and 'Indus
try taught by military disclpllnejare
among Its best recommendations. ' The
systematic routine of military training
is not wanted time, but a recognition
of proper proportions.
"In the military system, duty is a
word much heard and often cordially
hated. Hut the moral value of placing
duties upon college students, arduous,
oftentimes unpleasant duties, has a
high value in appearing to their man
hood and sense of honor.
"Hcspect for law aud authority is
one of the first lessons taught in mil
itary discipline. In fact, there 1j an
objection raised to military training
b. cause it teaches a boy to obey un
questlonlngly. But It seems to me that
.the military system, where a young
man leads for four years a life of self
restraint, obedience to law, and atten
tion to duty, produces habits which
w??H be of Inestimable service in after
Hcferring to the matter of wearing
uniform he said:
j "Consider for n moment the
democracy of the uniform. The bro
ganned boy from the plow handle on
the farm and tho well-dressed youth
from the city do not look much unlike
when they stand in uniform side by
j side in the ranks. In uniform they
start at the post together, neither
with any handicap, and it is to be the
better man who wins the race, char
acter and merit alone will count."
The above remarks arc Intended as
ja kindly suggestion and not meant as
a criticism. To the casual observer,
not Initiated in strict military usages*
these minor oversights in discipline
would not.be observed, but they are
noticeahlo to. a man of military ex
perience. Clemson College in her S00
strong young mon, has the making of
o. military college second to none in
the country. We hope to see this
school the peer of the Citadel, the V.
M. I., or any school in military tactics
as well as m other. Unes.
