PICKENS BOY IN HONOLULA
Soldier Grover Stansell Writes Inter
esting Letter to Hontefolks.
January 21, 1922
Dear Editor: Seeing as I have a
few spare moments on hand and noth
ing to do, I thought I would write
a few lines to my home town paper,
and the people of Pickens county- As
you see from the heading of this let
ter that I am a long ways from there
now. This is my second trip to the
Hula.iHula land or land of *grass
skirts. But the only trouble is that
the grass skirts are hanging in the
curio shops for sale.
But I will have to admit that there
are some pretty places on these
islands. There is the active volcano
on the Island of Hawaii, which is
about two hundred and fifty miles
from the island on which we are
stationed. I took a trip there about
two months ago and sure saw sonic
pretty sights. The time I was there
the lava was about fifteen hundred
feet from the top of the crater. The
volcano of Kilauca is the most ac
tive in the world. The area of the
volcano is seven hundred and eighty
five miles, and it covers two thou
sand and six hundred and fifty acres.
It sure is a big piece of land to be
on fire all the time. There are also
sulphur bays which are formed from.
the vapor of this crater. There is
also a big place and hotel set aside
for the tourist? who t-omne to this
place to spend the winter months.
It is known as the volcano house and
is about a mile from the main part
of the crater.
Well, we will come back to the
Island of Oahu on which we are
stationed. The main city is Honolulu,
and it is also the biggest city of the
Hawaiian group. Its population is
seventy-five thousand, and' it is one
city where you will find people of all
the nations in the world. Of course
I will admit that the Japs and Chinks
are the most represented.
The real estate men hyd better not
try to conic to these Islands as most
of the houses are niade of grass and
mud and wouldn't sell for more than
a hundred dollars. So I guess that
they would soon go broke and would
have to go into the bootlegging busi
ness, as many are doing over here at
the present time. Also a warning to
the moonshiners -that they are better
off in the states as there is no wood
here to firo the stills. All- the moon
shiners know over here is to miakc
Okolehao and the stuff is strong
to run one these army tractors.
As to rainy weather, we sure havc
get it over here. You have to carry
a raincoat at all times, even when it
is a clear day as the sky can be cleat
and all of a sudden it will start tc
rain, and let mec tell you that it nevei
has rained where I lived as it dloes
over here. It just rains pitchforks
wvith the handles coming dowvn first
I will close as I have a (late wvitl1
an egg andl don't want to break it
So bidding the editor and~ readers
farewcll, I remain,

-The editor of the Dillon Herald
strikes a keynote as to the reason for
unprofitable production of cotton, as.
"Men are gathered in convention at
New Orleans to find out why the pro-'
duction of cotton is unprofitable.
Every delegate to that convention
knows in advance why the production
of cotton is unprofitable, but it does
good for them to get together and
-talk it over. Cotton production is
unprofitable because cotton is made
with free labor. .The man who runs
the farm works for nothing and
makes his wife and children work for
nothing. If it is a family-owned or
family-rented farm there is no pay
roll to meet every Saturday night.
If Standard Oil or the U. S. Steel
Corporation was operated on the
same principle they woul, beve gone
into the hands of receivers long ago.
If a man owns or rents a far n he
ought to get a salary for opcratir.g
it. If his wife and chilirer are re
quired to work on the farm they
hould be pai( the same wages they
could earn in some other kind of
employment. Every (lay of free labor
the owner or renter of the farm and
his wife and their children give to
the farm is a contribution to the
World. Every year since the close of
the Civil War the South has contribu
-td millions of dolla s to the world
through the free labor of its women
and children. Taken in the aggregate
it has been a tremendous (train on the
resources of the south, and if the
south had not been blessed with mar
velous natural resources it would have
gone into bankruptcy many years
ago. That is why the production of
cotton is unprofitable."
When the Southern farmer gets it
under his skull-cap that he and his
family are just as entitled to a living
wnge for the labor they use in produc
ing their crop as the laborer in any
other industry is entitled to such
wage and then by organization puts
himself in position to demand that
wage better times will be just around
the corner for him and his family,
and cotton produc.tion will cease to be
BOLL WEEVIL SERMON
On the second Sunday in April, at
11 o'clock a. i., the Lord willing, I
will try to give the people of Cross
Roads church a Bible recipe to pre
vent the boll weevil or- to destroy the
boll weevil. Everybody invited.
