Mr. S : Mauldin, who was elected
Coroner of Pickens county in the Au
gust priznary, has forwarded his resig
nation to the governor. His reasons
are set forth in the following letter
to Governor Manning.
His Excellency, Richard I. Manning,
Governor of South Carolina,
Columbia, South Carolina.
In di+ primary of this summer I
was nominated by the voters of this
count to the office of coroner, and in
the general election held in November,
I was elected to fill the office of coro
ner for this county. I have bought a
farm and decided to live on this farm
which is-not properly located for the
office of coroner and do not want to
hold any public office, unless I am in
position to give to the people who
electd, me good service. I therefore
beg io h'abd: you my resignation and
beg that you appoint to fill this place
Mr. Oscar Durham, Pickens, S. C.,
Route 2. Mr. Durham lost his left
arm in an accident and has a family to
support. He is well qualifidd to fill
this office and I'think would give the
people good service.
Yours very truly,
S. E. Mauldin
RED CROSS NOTES
"I summon you to the comradeship."
The people of the world know what
the American Red Cross has done in
the past for humanity. We won't
dwell on that but pass immediately to
the future. To meet the demands of
to-day and the coming year the Red
Cross is about to launch undertakings
vast in scone and holy in purpose. Our
obligations to our millions of soldiers in
this country and France must be met.
Our allies must be cheered and helped
to rebuild devastated countries. To
this end the Red Cross has a great
Membership Drive on for December
16-23. So great is our faith in the uni
versality of the Red Cross spirit that
the aim for December is universal
membership. It is hoped that during
this week that the Red Cross will en
roll every American in the land. We
believe that the American people want
to express their moral and spirital sup
port to the victorious armies in the
form of the Red Cross.
The National Tuberculosis Associa
tion. which has conducted an annual
sale of the Red Cross Christmas Seals
for many years past has determined to
abandon the Christmas Seal Campaign
for this year and to unite in the Red
Cross Christmas Roll Call. To insure
support for this work, the war Council
of the Red Cross has appropriated
$2,500O,000 for Tuberculosis wyork in 1919.
Ten seals will be awarded those joining
the Red Cross Christmas Roll Call.
ft. T. Hallum of Pickens is county
Chairman for this work. He has di
vided up the territory of Pickens chap
ter by school districts. *Each teacher
in the territory of the chapter is re
questedl to act as canvassing an~d en
rolling -members under the directions of
the chairman of their local Red Cross
