due subscriptions to The entinel
for afte January there will not be
any of that kind on our subscription
We would not say any more about
these subscriptions, but we do no1
believe that. those subscribers wh<
are in arrears realize how much it
would mean to us if they would all
at least pay thd back dues, if they
do not with to renew.
We have recently gone over our
subscription books. How much do
you suppose is due The Sentinel on
subscription in small amounts of
from $1.00 to $3.00?
More than $2,000.
We do not believe there is a person
but who is able to pay the small
aumdunt due; but if there is, why,
just come in and tell us and it will
be all ri:ht. We will forget about it
and tall: about what a good Christ
mas we. had, and how hard we are
going to work and make good times
come back and show 'em that you
can't keep a good man down.
'I'hese. small amounts do not mean,
much to each individual, but all to.
gether they mean much to us. In
I fact, if you knew just how much it
does mean to us every one of you
would come in at once and pay.
Let'- begin the New Year right.
It is customai for weekly news
papers to skip an issue the week
after Christmas, but as The Sentinel
has some advertisements which the
law requires to be published this
week we are unable to conform to
the usual custom. However, we are
publishing an abbreviated paper this
Greenville Daily News.
From last to first place in education
is the splendid record made by Pick
ens county within the short period
of ten years. In 1910 Pickens coun
'y 'tood at t': bottom of South C.."r
lina counties in the percentage of
illiterates. Ten years later, accord
ing to the United States census
Pia-;ens county had a smaller per
centage of illiterates than any other
county in the state.
And Pickers is continuing to ad
I Vence since Uncle Sam last made his
count. Ten :,ears ago there weare
forty-four schools in Pickens county
- in which only one teacher presided.
Today there are but four of these, the
remainin' forty having passed out of
the familiar "one teacher" class.
F. Van Clayton, the young mar
who heads the educational system of
the county, has cause to feel proud ol
Pickens' posit ion in an educational
way. Hie can experience the thril
of achievement which Conmes witi
success in any worthy undertaking.
But greatest of all the pleasur<
- shoul be the consciousness that th<
citizens of Pickens are solidly unitet
in support of their schools. that
siolid front has been turned on illiter
cy and that in thei initial drive
Scovering a ten-year peritd, educatior
triumphed in Pickens and is now~
flourishing like the green bay tree.
Smaller in area, population and re
sources thani many other counties
Pickens deserves much praise. Th<
fastness of the mountains, the cold
air often working a hardship on those
Swho had many miles, to go, all thest
and other obstacles have not preven
ted thei youth of Pickens from get
Sting an, education.
Those who know the Pickens spirit
believe that the "great white coun
ty'' will continue to lead in the field
wherei it now holds sway. Residents
of the section named for Andrew Pick
ens are not ntade of material which
gives up and 'other Carolina counties
are going to have the fight of their
life if Pickeuns is displacedl from the
head of the educational list.
GOING T1O SCHOOL PAYS WELL
Tlhe fol lowing statements are made
in a lFederal government publication:
['very day spent in school pays
the child $9.02.
Here is the proof:
Uneducated laborers earn on the
avel~ge $500~ per year for forty
e -atotal of $20,000.
High school graduates earn on the
average $1,000 per 'ear for forty
yearsJa total of $40,000.
This educa'tion required twelve
years of school (of 180 'hys each) a
total 'of 2,160 'thys bzl sehool.
If 2.100 days at, school, add $20,
000 to the income for life, then each
day at school adds $9.02.
-The child that stays out of school
to earn less than $0.00 per clay is
losing money, not making money.
Yet there are thousands of chil
dren in South Carolina who are not
going to school,' or who have been
taken unnecessarly out of school by
. Moreover, the percentage of en
rolled pupils in regular attendance inl
South'Unroini schools was only
67ku1 in 1920.
S sss t most be exper
ience I ever got", says MaysPaterson,
the noble sopr'ano of the Mrotopoli
tan Opera Company who is to give
a recital in Textile Hall at Greenville
on Januar" 2nd, was leading the
singing in the little churches in south
ern Wisconsin when X went with my
father on his "circuit". Sometimes
I had a piano to play, sometimes a
pipe organ, sometimes a mealodeon,
but more often . I jlst stood up-I
was only a kid-and lindd. oft the
hymns for others to follow. This
at least taught me.- self-possession
which has never deserted me, entire
ly, although I'll confess that sonic
times I have had very weak knees,
and it taught me how to stand before
an audience. You know audiences
don't. differ very much and if by your
manner you can win a lot of Scan
dinavian farmers in Wisconsin, you
ought to be able to do the same thing
with an a'udience in 'Cernegie Hall,
New York. You know about the
Colonel's lady and Judy O'Grandy
well it's the same with audiences and
the more I see of them, the more I
am convienced that I am right.
