New Depot Brigade.
In order to care for men drafted
into the Elighty-first Division during
their period of quarantine and1 assign
.meat, which covers roughly four
weeks, a provisional depot brigade,
consisting of a brigade headquarters
and five battalions of total of 36 com
panies and commanded by Lieut. Col.
I. W. Leonard, has been established
at Camp Sevier, Greenville. WVith few
excep~ons only meni later to be as
signed '.o the dIvision will enter the
Holstein Cow to Front.
Under the heading, "An Inspiration
to the South," The Black and White
Record publishes the folic wing con
plimentary account of the dairy herd
at th farm of the State hospital:
"More and more are we in the North
realizing the possibilities of the South
as a field for future development along
dairying lines which is another way
of saying, opening up new fields of
conquest for the Iolstein cow. Al
ready great progress has been made
in educating the Southern farmer
away from the one crop plan, the pro
cess of education being considerably
expedited by disastrous experiences
with the boll weevil, which played
havoc with the cotton crop in large
areas. A few experiences along this
line and the Southern farmer was in
a decidedly receptive mood for the
arguments in favor of diversified farm
ing. In connection with this change
in mental attitude has grown up very
naturally a strong sentiment. in favor
of co-operation with federal authori
ties in eradicating the fever ticks
which in the past have made it impos
sible or at least impracticable to in
troduce oNrthi growth cattle of mature
years in any numbers. The federal
government now reports wonderful
progress along this line and whole
States have been relieved from quar
"In years gone by our Jersey friends
have looked upon the South as their
legitimate prey, but of late the Hol
stein cow has been coming into her
own and already is challenging the
supremacy of her diminutive sister.
"Even some of our breeders have
been lukewarm on this Souther-n prop
osition as they were not entirely con
vinced that the Holstein cow was best
suited for the Southern environment,
but the experiences of those who have
given pure bred Holsteins a fair show
to demonstrate their adaptability to
Southern conditions have been able to
prove conclusively that this surmise
is not in accordance with the facts.
"Perhaps the most important dem
onstration of Holstein production in
the South is that furnished by the
State Hospital for the Insane at Co
lumbia, S. C. In this herd a number
of, sensational official records have
been completed, two of which stand to
day as world's recorids for their par
ticular ages. We refer in particular
to the work of the two wonderful
yearling heifers, Edith Maple Crest
Pontiac Artis and Daisy Pontiac
Champion Artis, sisters both being
sired by Eli Pontiac Silene. The for
mer of these heifers freshening at the
age of one year, 11 months, two days,
made a seven day record of 27.41
pounds of butter, 521.5 pounds of milk,
which lacks less than a pound a day
of a world's record for milk produc
tion for heifers under 24 months of
age and is a world's record for butter
production with a margin of over a
pound the best previous record being
26.22 pounds. The other sister made
a record of 24.17 pounds of butter,
483.4 pounds of milk at the tender
age of one year, eight months, 16 days,
which is a world's record for both but
ter and milk by a very wide margin
for heifers of her age. Thin, too, a
little earlier the same establishment
hung up a new recohl for all of the
southe-n por-tion of the United States
with their- seven-yeart-old cow, Anne
Johanna Spofford, a dlaughlter- of Ca
lamity Spofford's Son. Her- figures
fot- the seven days made 37 days after
calving were 37.23 poundls of butter,
720 pounds(1 of milk, an avet-age of
nearly 103 pounds of milk per (lay.
Plenty of Cans.

South Cat-almna by the conser-vation
andl pr1oductive division of the footd
admninistr-ation that not only will there
be tin cans in sufficient quantity for

assured that wvater- glass may be se

Rhett has been for more than six
mont!js with the British medical corps
in France. He was taken a prisoner
by the Germans during the German
drive toward Amiens late in March
and through the Red Cros members
of the family were definitely informed
that the young surgeon was in the
hands of the enemy. He was cap

colonel commanding the regiment with
which Lieutenant Rhett was, while at.
tending to the allied wounded.
Conditions Grow More Grave.
Columbia.-So great has become the
European demand for flour that the
Food Administration is urging farm
ers not to hold wheat for seeding their
crop except in a few States where
the period of harvesting winter wheat
overlaps the period of planting.
While it has been the practice in
many communities for farmers to hold
over wheat for seed, the Food Admin
istration regards it as unnecessary. It
is almost beyond belief that in any
part of the country the yield froi the
next harvest will be insufficient to
meet all seed requirements for the
succeeding crop. It has never failed
in the past: there is no reason to be
lieve it will now. In some sections
c'onditiOns are such that. it. would be
practically imp~ossilie to put in a suc
cessful crop except with seed that had
been held over from the previous year.
The Food Administ ration recognizes
these conditions, however, and applies
its requests only to those sections
where the only reason for holding over
wheat would be to pr1otect against the
possibility of failure of the crop now
growing--a contingency which at .pres
ent seems very remote,
Even should there be local crop
failures, it would be entirely feasible
to ship In from othor sections seedl
that is known to be adapted to condi
tions ruling in the afflic tedl commu
Never before has there been such
urgent needl for wheat. Every car
load, every bushel and every grain
that can possibly leave the farm may
within the next few months play an
important part in our war program.
Throughout the countary m-illions of
people are cutting their consumption
to the barest minimum, many of them
going entirely without wheat. The
release of thousands of bushels ordi.
narily heldl for seed wouldl do much
to relieve the present situation and
to insure exportation conditions.
Get Ready for Registering,
Columbia.-Capt. R. E. Carwile, in
charge of the selective service regu.
lations, has advisedl all local boards
of the State to have adequate office fa
cilities and a sufficilent number of
registrars ready for the registration
on June 6 of all the young men who
have become 21 years of age within
the last 12 months.
The registration will be directed by
the various local boards, the hours
being from 7 o'clock in the morning
until 9 o'clock in the evening.
Sings for Soldiers.
Spartanburg.-Miss Margaret W'il
son, daughter of the president, will
visit Camp Wadsworth and will sing
to the soldiers. Miss Wilson is mak
ing a tour of the training camps under
the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. war
work council. Much interest is being
manifested among the soldiers and
people of th~e city over Miss Wilson's
visit andl her coming is awaited with
keen interest. Miss Wilson was here
during the winter, giving a concert at
