In music Textile Hall this winter
offers kubelik, one of the greatest
violinists in the world ranking with
Ysaye, Kreisler, Zimbalist, Ilman and
others. For singers we have booked
Riccardo Martin for November 2nd.
Miss Anna Case, one of the most
beautiful women on the concert stage
today comes about March 1st. It is
rarely we have the opportunity to
obtain a Metropolitan star and
Greenville is to be congratulated on
this effort. We have also been most
fortunate in securing another fam
ous leader of the Metropolitan stage,
Miss Marie Rappold, who a few years
go was considered by Cazza, the
manager of the Metropolitan Opera
'louse, as the most accomplished
dramatic soprano in the world. Her
name is known to every music lover
n the country.
Another New York attraction is
the great harpist, Salvi, the only liv
ing musician who has turned away
people from the. coliseums of the
North and West. He is the possessor
of the most beautiful harp in the
world, being % a golden instrument
which it required four years to build.
It is the largest harp in existence
and his playing it is said by the New
York press to be the most marvelous
thing ever heard.
There will be no series of concerts
in Textile Hall this winter. Each
concert will stand on' its own merits,
and the box office will be open one
week in advance or more to each
attraction. Textile Hall is now offer
ing these splendid entertainments to
the people of Greenville for the sea
son of 1921-1922. If, when the re
serve seat sale is open, patrons buy
one or more seats, it means that we
shall be encouraged to bring other
attractions later on in the season. If
you do not use the seats you take,
give them to some friend or rela
- tive who will appreciate the courtesy
highly, and you will have given us
r substantial assistance. Be generous
in your support. If you can afford
it, buy tickets whether you are cer
tain you can use them or not, and
urge everyone you Ae to fall in line.
We welcome criticism, and will ap
preciate letters or suggestions that
will help us make Textlie Hall popu
lar. We have tried this season to
Ioutstrip all others in point of variety
of entertainment as well as quality.

ILEMSON NAMES GRID SCI ED.

tary Academy at West Point.
The schedule of the Clemson Col.
lege football team has been announe
ed and in keeping with Coach Stew
art's policies some big teams are to
be played. Of ispecial interest to
Clemson alumni will be the opening
game of the season, that with Centre
College, at Danville, Ky., October 1.
A game with Carnegie Tech at Pitts-'
burg is pending. This game is on the
schedule two days after the Citadel
game at Orangeburg, so there is
some -doubt as to whether it will be
played this year. Stewart, however,
may arrange the dates.
Next year Clemson will open its
season with the United States Mili-I
tary Academy at West Point. That
is in 1922. Coach Stewart's policy
is to schedule two or three big inter
sectional games each year. His re
cor'd gives him prestige and with it
the team acquires prestige. With
the exception of Centre and Car
negie Tech the other teams will be
among thos: played last yeai'. The
1921 schedule follows:
October 1, Centre College at Dan

A CAMPAIGN FOR GOOD ROADS.
Organization.Will Take Advantage of
Every Known Publicity Method.
Columbia, Aug. 1.--An intensive
publicity campaign for good roads is
3eing planned by the South Carolina
Jood Roads Association for~ the near

Lt a meetingSaturday last.
The newvspapers, the bill-boards,
he moving pictures and other agen
~ies will be used in the campaign.
lready posters are being printed
mphasizing the fact that "bad roads
~ost more than good roads."
"Bad roads mean loss and isola
~ion; good roads mean prosperity and
sommunication," reads one of the
slogans being gotten out. by the fs
sociation. Another circular calls at
ention to the fact that, wvhile other
states of the union are spending
mormous sums on state highwvays,
South Carolina is spending practic
ally nothing by comparison.
"We a\.e delighted with the re
iponses that our appeals are meet
ng with," said President L. D. Jen
mings. "The people of the state are
sending in their membership fees
right along. A big membership in
ur organization means a strong or..
~anization, and every county in the
state should have a large number of I
ictive members. We want as mem
ers people who are really interested
n goodl roads and who will get out
