GOVERNOR ?AMUNO TODAY
An "?jvept which has been looked for
ward to In South Caroline, for a long
time will take place today at noon.
Richard I. Wanning, will, take the oath
of office as governor of South Caro
lina, succeeding Governor Charles A.
Smith, who hu? tho .?distinction in
South, Carolina history or having suc
ceeded Ex-Governor Blesse.
The large majority 'given Governor
elect Manninr at the primary laut
fall ls an assurance that he will come
the gubernatorial chair bringing
1th him the best wishes of a great
majority of South Carolinians.
The inauguratloh of Governor Man
ing and the administration which will
ushered In will be as great a con
trast to the administration of former
Governor Blesse as ls possible to be
South Carolina politics.
A business man, well ? ?*.? nd In gov
emmental policies, conBP> votivo, yet
progressive, Governor Menning brings
the executive chamber a mind fill
.d with thoughts for the t?st Interests
the Palmetto State..
His ls not an easy task, however
There must be reorganisation in many
departments of the State government
and a complete reversal of the prac
tices of his predecessor, but Govern
or Menning will have with him the
people ot the State who have grown
tired of reckless abuse ot authority,
and we predict for Governor Manning
reign of law and order.,
The people, realising the kind ot!
man, will be alow to permit the crimea
which have become so prevalent dur
lng the past few tnpotha. Crim?nala
will r?alise that with, the exit pt Gov
amor Blouse from the Chief Execu
tlveB's office that it will not be so easy
to secure a pardon, and they will con
sequen tl y be more careful in what they I
do, and wilt not be so 'ready to violate I
the laws of the State.

OIR EDUCATIONAL PAGE
Attention le called In thia tssue to
tbe educational page which has boen j
running In The Intelligencer for a
number of weeba. When we proposed
some time ago to publish a page once j
each week devoted to the educational
Interests of tbe county, lt was not ex- j
peeted that lt would meet with aucb
hearty and ready response, but we
have found a great Interest in things
educational in Anderson county. This
is due to several causes. Anderson
county has a corps of well trained,
conscientious and able teachers. The
school glvernment of the county ls In
the bands of. a man who is devoting
his entire time and thought to build
ing up the educational conditions ot I
the county, and in addition to thin be]
is assisted by one of the most con
scientious, faithful workers In tho
Superintendent Pelton and Miss
Maggie Carlington will stsnd ss peers
to any two educators now engaged In
the work anywhere In the South.
Joined, as they have been quite recent
ly, by Miss Jayne Carlington, who will
have charge of the girls' tomato club
work In the county, and In the near
future by a trained farm demonstra
tor, who will have chsrge of the ag
ricultural work, and who will devote
considerable time to the educational
aspect of this work, we do not.hesi
ta te to predict for Anderson county *
revival and extension of educational
work, whiqh will easily place her in'
the lead among the counties of South j
"BUILD NOW" THE WATCHWORD.
The Baltimore Manufacturera Re
cord gives the following editorial ad
vice whose timeliness la worth noting
Io giving particulars regarding mu
nicipal and county work to be under
taken nt Rome. Oe., to the extent of
about $350.000. Mr. H. A. Wheeling,
secretary of the chamber wi commerce
of Rome, saya: "These imrpovtments
are being undertaken la Une with peel- !
rion taken by the Manufacturers
Record td 'build now,' believing that
such Improvements can be made now
more economically than would be pea.
Bibi? In the next yeer or two."
"Build now" and "do public work
now" should be the slogan through
out the South, and. Indeed, throughout
the country'. The time is propitious for
doing public work now, aa well as for
building operations, by all wht plan
to build, any time in tbe near future
and who are financially able to under
take the work now.
There ta a great advantage at the
present time In doing ail work of thia
kind, both by individuals and by conj
menltieayfor at present thousands of t
people are out of employment, build
ing material lo lower than lt bas been
for years, and lt ls, therefore, possible
So do all of this kind to better advaut- I
age and.a lower cost than it has been
for many years or ls likely to be when
ever 'prosperity returns to the coun
In addition to. the saving in work
thus done, employment would In this
way be given to many of the people
now .seeking employment in vain.
?very public official In public life in
the South ought to take an actlv. in
terest in investigating the feasibility
of taking up Immediately all construc
tion work that can be done to advant
age. Every mgr. who expects to build
a home or do any other construction,
work within the next year or two. and
who ls financially able to do lt now.
ought to do lt now, for bia own food
as well aa for the good of others.
Every man who holds back work
that he could afford to1 have done at ?
present merely out of general timidity
or anwllmgneea to go ahead ls Injur- '
lng th* country. Every piece of muni
cipal or county work that ts delayed
by reason of inactivity on the part of J
rnnalclpal. or, county officials is injur- .
lng the whole community. Railroads
and many buBlnexs organisations, as
well as individuals, are not in a pool- ,
