WESLEYAN METHODIST COL
Only Wesleyan School In South lb
A Greenville N'ews .staff corres
pondent, who recently visited Pick
eris county, wrote the following ar
ticle about the' Wesleyan Mi-thodist
College: at Central-* for' his paper:.
The &ly institution in the south
maintained by -the membdrs 'of that
denomination is the Wesleyan Meth
dist College, located but a short dis
tance from Central, and which has
an enrollment of -115 students.
The local college, which is one of
the four in the nation maintained by
the Wesleyan Methodist church draws
its students all the way from Virginia
t Alabama. A large 'number are
from South Carolina, although North
Carolina, Virginia and other states
are close seconds. The institution is
Prof. L. B. Smith, a graduate of
Wofford and a native of Spartanburg,
is at the head of the Wesleyan Metho
dist College. He has. been connected
with the school for nine years, having
been president for the last seven,
years.' -The faculty consists of ten
The college owns 80 acres of land,
virtually all of which are utilized in
the campus or as sites'for the college
bulidings. The administration build.
ing is located on a gently sloping hill
and is the center of the college colony
being flanked by the dormitories and
homes of the professors.
Since its establishment in 1906 the
college has enjoyed a steady growth
having received the undivided support
of members of the ilenomination
throughout the nation. Much aid is
received from the Wesleyan Methodist
Educational Society of Syracuse, N.'
Y., which owns and operates the local
college. Three years after its estab
lishent the school was chartered un
der the laws of South Carolina.
The majority of students are here'
for religious. reasons, Prof. Smith!
stated. Every student, it is said, is
either a member of the denomination
or else is favorable to the creed.
Recently a revival was held at the
college, conducted by the Rev. H. H.
Williams. At the close of the revival
every student of the institution made'
a profession of their faith in Christ.
Many of those here are ministerial,
ftudents and are pursuing courses in
the theological department. Others
are preparing for work in the foreign
mission fields. The school now has
one graduate in the foreign mission
fields while another is to leave for
this work on January 1.
Th dream of the Wesleyan Metho
dist denomination, Prof. Smith said,
was to make of the local college a,
great institution and one that will
compare with others throughout the
south. Because of the small number
of Wesleyans in the Southern stats,
the work has grown steadily rather
than by leaps and l-oun:ls. Hwev-.'
a college course, theological course,
high sichool and primary work are all
available for students matriculating
The cost to students is probably
the lowest of any institution in the
state, Prof. Smth said. The total
co(st per') year' for eac'h studlent, in
eluding board andl other expenses, is
In .,accordlance with the dIoctrine of
the (denomination, no inter-collegiate
athletic games a'e permitted. Games
and sports are encourged between the
various classes but studen~its of the
school are not allowed to indulge inl
contests wvith other schools.

A most enjoyable affair was given
by Mrs. J. E. Boggs and Mrs. G. R.
Hendricks when they were joint hos.
tesses-last Tuesday afternoon at the
home of the former and entertained
in honor of Mrs. Van Clayton, a re
cent bride. The attractive new bun
galow of Mrs. Boggs was artistically
decorated, green and white being the
color scheme, together with sugges
tions of the approaching Hallowe'en
seasbn. The 'guests arrived before
the honoree and were given hand
painted cards upon whieh they were
to write their best receipe for "man.
aging a husband." These were later
read by Mrs. Clayton and produced
much comment and laughter. On
the wall at the entrance of a nar
row pathway made by green a:nd
white crepe paler tied to chairs was
a schedule of trips. and all unmarried
ladies pi-esent were asked to write
opposite the nian'e of a. month when
they would begin the 'matriimonial
journey. Mrs. Chiyton then began
the journey down the pathway and
tile first sign she encountered was,
"Jt's a long, rocky road to. matri
niony." She indeed found many orig
inal signs and more than an armful
of "rock" before she reached the end
Cf the way. Upon opening thc-e
"rocks" they were found to be 'iice
and useful gifts from friends. Mrs
Clayton was then given examination
blanks and asked to stand an exan
ination for entering matrimony. E'eh
guests present asked a question re
lating to the way she would do whO-j
marriel alnd her answers, later read
by Mrs. Boggs, were so good and ori
ginal that it was unanimously voted
that she be iven a first. grade eer
tificate. The hostess, assisted by
Miss Thelma Lewis, Bernice Carey,
Mary Morris and Mrs. John C. Carey,
served delicious fruit salad, san(d
wiehes antd coffee. Mrs. Clayton was
then given a market basket tied with
green and white crepe paper and
bearing the sign, "may your purse
nlways be heavy and your heanr
light," and asked to g marketing,
This' she did by drawing from thi
basket pieces of money (small card
boards) upon which were direction

SCHOOL TEACHERS MEETING.
At The Easley High School Building
There will be a meeting of the
teachers of Pickens county held at
the Easley High School Bulding Nov
ember 5th, at 10:30 A. M. The pur
pose of this meeting is to perfect.an
organization for the benefit of the
teachers of the county. A reading
course will be discussed with numer
ous other questions pertaining to the
work of the teacher.
Every teacher is urgently request
ed to be present, for we believe this
meeting will be of great benifit to
all. If a reading course is inaugura
ted it will be of great help to teach
era in getting their certificates re
iewed as well as helping seeure
higher grade of certificate.
The State Supervisor of Rural
schools Mr. D. L. Lewis will be pre
sent ind give valuable assistanse.
Let every teacher in the county,
whether he or she be teahing at the
present time or not, feel it their duty
to attend this meeting. Those teach
ers who refuse to attend unless pro
videntially hindered will not be given
the same consideration as those who
do attend. So please bear in this in
iniid and come for your own as well
as your schools good.

The Teachers examination was held
Oct. 7th, and 8th., with about seven
ty (70) standing. Previously there
has been a larger number presenting
themselves for certificates, and the
fact that only 70 stood the examina

that there might be a teacher short
age in the county.

placed on the county Su perintendent.
Those having business with the su
