m,:eting beide. a numthir o the U
der of Pocahontas who will attend.
There will be several special fei
tures of this convention. . The ac
dtess of welcome will be delivere
by Dr. W. T. Brockman, in behalf I
the city of Greer, and the Loyal O

will be extended the convention b
members of the other fraternal o

by the different orders. The r<
sponse to these addresses-of welcon
will be made by Judge W. W. Smitl
Great Senior Sagamore of Sput

the convention will be the big parad

tribes described in their aborigin
costumes and war paint will parad
the streets of Greer, possibly led b
the Piedmont band. This will be
fine opportunity for the children t
see "Hee'p Much Big Injuhs." W
hope to. make this parade interestin
for both the young and old. Th
public is cordially invited to witnes
And still another feature will b
the "degree contest in the Adoptio
Degree," when more than five dc
gree teams will contest for the spIler
did "banner" now in possession o
Oklahoma Tribe No. 3 at Piedmoni
This feature is always an interestin
one, but will be more so this time be
cause of the large number of we:
prepared degree teams entering th
contest. Every effort will be mad
to make this our best convention.
Yours in F. F. and C,

THE MOST IMPORTANT OFFICE
During the recent session of th
Saluda Baptist Association, somebod
offered a resolution requesting th
judges of South Carolina to impos
chain gang sentences on all violator
of the prohibition law. At this junc
ture, T. L. Clinkscales, Jr., a men
her of the House of Representative
from Anderson county, according t
the Rev. D. Weston Hiott in Th
Easley Progress, "made a hit and
home run" when he said in sut
"You blame the legislature for nc
passing more stringent laws to mak
prohibition a success. You come t
the association and pass resolution:
You go back home and vote for an
elect whiskey men to go to the legit
lature and of course whiskey me
will not vote against liquor and the
is the reason we have no more strih
gent laws to enforce prohibition."
Upon this the Rev. Mr. Hiott th
"He told the truth; we could n<
deny it. If the Baptists,. Methodist
Presbyterians, Episcopalians an
Lutherans and Christians would stan
together, we could make South Car<
lina as dry as a bone. If w.e do nc
do this, God will hold us accountabl<
My platform will be, if L am livin
and able to work during the nex
campaign, to support men for th
general assembly who will pledg
themselves to pass laws to punish se
verely men wvho tote pistols, mak
liquor, sell liquor or transport liquo

Strong enough for the most robust,
