Limestone's Opening. Week
A Letter from Limestone.
Daddy Lodge ask me to give an ac.
count of our opening4o Capt. Bell, th(
editor of the Gaffney Ledger. Now, ii
I could just tell him what I am going tc
tell you, I wouldn't mind. Why, th(
impossible has happened.
You know the motto of the canning
club giris of the state "To make the
best better." We were taught in ou
Seminery English that this was impos.
sible, but it is not with Limestone col
lege, for that is what she does every
year. Each year is the best, and the
next one better. This year is no excep.
tion to the rule. It is the very best
year in the history of the college. Best
in the number.of dollars added to the
treasury in the way of endowment, best
in the number of girls crowding-to be
truthful overcrowding the dormitories;
best in the kind of girls' swarming
through the halls. One of the teachers
began explaining to a friend the unusu
ally fine set of girls. My friend said,
"you don't have to tell me anything
about them, I have seen for myself,
actions speak louder than words," and
then told a particularly sweet, fine thing
the student body did. Pat us on the
The student body couldn't help but be
particularly sweet, fine and thoughtful
after Dr. Lodge's talk to the students
on Thursday morning the 19th, when
we were assembled for our first chapel
exercises. It is a high standard he gave
us to live up to, but he makes us feel
that we can do anything. That talk
I was telling you why this year is the
best in the history of the college. It
must be because we've had only one
homesick girl that I know anything
about, and I am sure she will be the
happiest one in the crowd when her
trunk gets here.
Friday we had the classes on schedule
time but as there was not much study
ing to do, as we did not have all of our
books, study hour was not very strictly
observed, indeed for half of this period
the Dean met us and gave us sonething
to think about, and the last half was
spent in carrying out these plans. She
stioke of the splendid traditions of the
college-the finest of which is the spirit
ual atmosphere that pervades the school
the atmosphere of home and love. Of
course we old girls knew that already.
Saturday night the observance of one
of the best social traditions the Y. W.
C. A. reception to 'the new girls. It
was a wonderful success. We enjoyed
it all. One of the biggest hits of the
evening was made by the director of
music, The president of the Y. W.
surprised the Faculty by calling on each
one for a stunt and Prof. Eyer's mono
logue on love was screamingly funny.
Sunday night is o'ur Y. W. C. A. night.
Our Y. W. C. A is the strongest and
best organization in school. More than
one girl has come to Limestone because
her mother happened to visit our Y. W.
Monday is our holiday, and we started
it right. While at break fast "Joe"
put up a beautiful poster calling for the
Fourth Liberty Loan. Before the poster
,was hardly up the president of the Grif
i4th society called for a meeting of her
society and they subscribed for a $50
bond, the first one subscribed in Gaffney.
The second followed immediatly. The
Cooper society took a $100 bond. Didn't
I tell you if we were anything wve were
Always yours and Daddy Lodge's girl,
and to the newv girls,.

"'When It Poure, lu A
It Reigns" -
Pickens County Sunday School
A very interesttng convention was
held at the Six Mile Academy the 21st.
and 22nd. of September, when the Sun
oay school forcesof the county gathered
for their annual meeting. It must be
confessed that Pickens county does not
stand in the front ranks among the
counties of the stata when it comes to
Sunday school, but there are signs of an
awakening that pron'ses better things
for the year to com,
Prbf. Webb and ' Davis, workers
employed by the Sttr Association, were
present and their !.:vices were both
practical and inspiru 'unal. It is doubt
ful if the valuable service that the
South Carolina Sunday School Associa
tion is rendering to Pickens county is
generally known or fully appreciated by
the people of the county. lrof. Mor
rison and Prof. Conrady of Clemson
Coliege were also among those whoes
presence and wora was appreciated by
the convention. Prof. West of Central
Wesleyan Methodist Cillege showed to
the convention the necessity of having
trained leaders .and laid out practical
plans for securing them- As never he
fore, the world is appreciating the faith
ful work that the Sunday school is do
ing. The words of President Wilson
come with special meaning, "No study
is more important to the child than the
study of the Bible, and of the truths
that it teaches, and there is no more
effective agency for that study than the
One resolution passed by the conven
tion should be of special interest to
every citizen of Pickens county, "'Be it
resolved that Pickens county set for
its objective this year the Gold Star
Standard." That means, among other
things, that a convention be held in each
of the five Districts of the county and
that in these five conventions, every
Sunday school in the county is to be
representedl. WVhat say you, people of
the county, can we do it? Let us go
over the top! S. W. Wright,
County Secy. and Treas.
