Women and the Lib
erty Loan Campaign
Now that the Third Liberty Loan is
over and Pickens county far over
subscribed her quota, I wish to express
heartfelt gratitude for the efficient
help the women of Pickens county
gave so willingly.
This work is new to so many of us,
but I feel sure that we were only
strengthening ourselves to do greater
things in the future. The results can
not be shown by figures alone, for in
many cases we aroused patriotism, in
formed the people along certain lines of
The committee in Central4with Mrs.
T. M. Norris as chairman, did remark
able work, over-subscribing their quota
by several thousand dollars.
At Dacusville, under the leadership
of Miss Eva Holcombe, the results
were most gratifying.
Oolenoy, with a capable and faithful
chairman, Mrs. A. M. Sutherland,
made a good report.
Miss Clarice Keith, chairman at Pick
ens Mill, never tired in her efforts to
swell the Liberty Bond fund, and of
course made a splendid record.
Cateechee, with Mrs. Furman Norris
as chairman, made a good report.
Misses Elizabeth 'Mauldin and Edna
Earle, our county demonstrators, ren
dered valuable assistance.
The women of Pickens county are
fast becoming awakened to their du
ties, and I feel sure that in the future
we will do even better work.

Supt. Clayton Re
signs to Enter Army
It will be of interest to people in ev
ery section of Pickens county to learn
that Superintendent of Education F.
Van Clayton has resigned in order that
he may enlist in either the U. S. army
or navy and fight for his country.. He
has offered his resignation to the gov
ernor to take effect May 31 and he ex
pects immediately thereafter to enter
Prof. Clayton was placed by the ex
emption board in Class 3D and there
was little chance of him being drafted,
at least soon; but he volunteers from
purely patriotic motives. He has rec
ommended that former superintendent
R. T. Hallum be appointed to fill out
his unexpired term.
The following letters explain them
The Honorable Richard I. Manning,
Governor of South Carolina,
Columbia, S. C.
I hereby tender my resignation as
Superintendent of Education of Pickens
county, to take effect the 31st day of
May, 1918, in order to go Into active
I realize the vast importance of car
rying on the educational work of our
state during these perilous times, yet I
feel that a competent man can be se
cured to fill my place, who as yet, should
not consider military service. 1 feel it
my duty to go, and to retrain would, in
my own mind, brand me as a man not
worthy to be protected by the govern
ment under which I am living.
In resigning my office 1 trust that the
man who takes my place will feel the
fire of inspiration for the schools of
Pickens county, as I was made to feel
for my country, when an acquaintance
of mine told his son on leaving for the
army to "ever keep in mind the right
eousness of the cause for which you are
fighting; remember that you are a man;
go over the top and give them H -1.'"
Yours very truly,
F. V. Clayton.
State Board of Education;
Columbia, S C.
In view of the fact that I have re
signed my office of Superintendent of
Education of Pickens county in order to
go into active military service, 1 hereby
recommend to your honorable body Mr.
R. T. Hallum, of Pickens, S. C., to fill
my unexpired term of office.
My reasons for recommending Mr.
Hallum are as follows:
1. To appoint a man that is not ac
quainted with the work, would possibly
retard the educational work in the
county for a considerable length of time.
As Mr. Hallum is thoroughly aC~liainted
with the work, he can step right in and
carry it forward without having to learn.
2. In the campaign of two years ago,
Mr. Hallum received the next highest
number of votes, showing that he is the
people's next choice.
3. In recommending Mr. Hallum I
feel that I sin recommending one who
is conscientious in his work; one who is
at all times on the square in his deal
ings; and above all I feel that he is tru
ly a nman.
If you, after carefully considering
this recommendation, can appoint Mr.
Ilallum, I am frank to say that I- be
lieve you will make no mistake, and
that it will he appreciated by myself,
Mr. Hallum, and the people of Pickens
county. Yours very truly
F. V. Clayton.
