MUCH CONSTRUCTION WORK
Gen. W41son Has Recovered and Has

A new camp is being built some two
miles from Camp Jackson. Ma'y civil

area of country. A railroad track

lumber has been hauled and is being

A number of barracks have been
built already and a water tower and
fire station, have been built and are
now in operation. There is much
lumber scattered all over the territory
for several miles where this camp is
being built. The new camp will cover
an area of several square miles.
As yet no soldiers are stationed at
this camp, except a detachment of mil
Itary police for guard duty.
The location of the new camp is
high and dry and sandy. Much of the
land which the camp will occupy is in
pine woods, while many acres of the
area were farmed this year aid here

cotton or a field of corn, as yet un
Some of the scenery around the new
camp is most picturesque. The hills

The extensive program for barrack
and other construction work at Camp
Sevier, re'ently authorized by the war
depatrment, is now well under way.
The work includes the construction of
two story barracks, enlarged mess
halls, kitchens, bath houses, etc., for
the accommodation of approximately
16,000 men. These are to be construct

In addition to these barracks, a do

the former to accommodate 4.000 men
and the latter 1,000 ~men, are to be
constructed further north on a part of

Criticise Prayer Signal.
Greenville.-Greenville's one minute
of 'bsolute darkness throughout the
city every night at 9 o'clock as a sig
nal for prayer for the success of the
allied armies has been criticised re
cently in the public prints by several
citizens who, while appreciating and
praising the spirit of the plan, believe
that the turning out of the lights Is
fraught with possibilities of danger
that would be avoided if some other
prayer signal-the ringing of a bell,
for Instance-were adopted. One well
known physician In an article to a
local newspper, cited a recent surgi
cal operation of a serious nature, the
patient being an 18 months old boy.
At a critical moment during the oper
stion, the lights went off. The 60 sec
Dnds were anxious ones and the long
wait during which practically nothing
could be done for the little patient
wus the source of intense anguish to
the child's father who was pesent.
Others, discussing the situation in a
public way, have expressed somewhat
similar views and it is possible that
the matter of changing the form of
prayer signal will be taken up offi

In wheat, but it is pointed out that
rye should likewise be planted on a
larger scale than ever before. It is
taken for granted that South Caro
lina farmers have realized, generally -
speaking the necessity of making their
lands produce food crops, and that,
therefore, they will plant at least
enough wheat to provide for them
selves, and wherever possible, to help
fill up the nation's wheat bin.
In planting rye also, the farmer has
an opportumhty to help his country and
himself. Rye is an excellent substi
tute for wheat, in fact has almost
equal value as a bread crop. Rye
grows well on nearly all types of soil
in South Carolina, and requires com
paratively little labor to produce it.
It offers financial returns to the farm.
er. It serves as a cover crop during
the winter, and it may be harvested in
time to plant a crop in the spring.
Clemson College experts say that
the Abruzzi is the vasiety to grow in
South Carolina, and that it will do
better if planted on land that has been
well plowed and harrowed early in the
faZ. It will do well, however, if
planted on corn land if plowed into
cultivation, or better still if plamited
with a one-horse drill. Rye does not
require hea;vy fertilization, but it will
do well to apply from 100 to 200
pounds of acid phosphate and about an
equal amount of cotton seed meal at
the time of planting. It should be
seeded at the rate of 4 to 6 pecks per
acre. The time for planting is not as
important as for other small grains.
It will probably do best i planted In
October or early November, but it
may be planted as late as December
