THE PRESS MEET AT GREEN
The annual meeting of the South
Carolina State Press Association
held in Greenville last Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday was one of the
most pleasurable and profitable in
every way in the as;sociation's his
tory. The people of Greenville left
nothing undone to make the news
paper men have a g)od time, and the
papers real and talks made before
the association were exceptionaliy
and uniformly good. Then the Rap
assembly was in session at Green
vill: at the same time and some of
the newspaper ml en took advantare
of the opportunity to hear such men
as Dr. G. W. Truett, of Dallas,
Texas, said to he the greatest Bap
tist pr Lacher in the world, and Dr.
B. Y. Mullins, president of the Bap

guests of citizens of Greenville at :
brilliant banquet, both at the Otta

things at these affairs besides some
thing to eat. What we mean by thi
is that there were happy talks an(
some good singing and music. Th(
meeting was brought to a close or
top of Paris Mountain where a rea
old fashion pienic was enjoyed Fri

teresting and unique character. Mr.
Gantt was wvith The Pickens Senti..
nel a short time about twelve years
ago and sent regards to his friends

In a short talk before the associa

of the News, J. Rion McKissick and
Geo. R. Koester, of the Piedmont,
were constantly and unceasingly
working for the success of the meet

Never did men show more untiring
zeal, finer skill and tact than did
these choice spirits of the newspaper
world. God bless 'em every one.

souvenir of the occasion--a neat box
containing three nice handkerchiefs
which were made in Greenville.

.::.....the association's history
t.:..i.e at the Thursday afternoon
: sier.. when two pupils of the Bran
'n4 mil1 adult school appeared be
fore th, as-ociation and gave a prac
tienl demonstration of the wonderful
w.ork being done at that school. L.
M. Brown, one of the pupils-a fine,
intelligent looking man-stood be
-:c the association and told how he
had been unable to get any school
ing whatever when a boy. In a
simple, earnest way he told how he
was induced to go to his first school
when he was 48 years of age, and
-with much feeling told of his great
joy at now being able to read and
write. "I can read your news
papers," he said, "and, thank God, I
-an read the Bible."
Mr. Brown presented a young
'man of the Brandon village whom
he said was a soldier in France dur
ing the war and who could not write
to his wife. This man who attended
the adult school for nine months last
session then read a selection on
"How Horace Greeley Became a
Printer." Following the speeches
of the two men members of the as
sociation spoke strongly in favor of
the work being done by the Illiter
acy Commission and pledged it their
hearty support. The members of
the association were deeply touched
by the remarks of. the two men.
After thanking the two pupils by
a rising vote for appearing before
the association, the members crowd
ed around them to shake their hands.
