NEW DAUGHTER OF
Miss Lucy white Hayneft, Graoddaugk.
ier of Jeff Davis, Signally Hon
ored by Confederates.
Mobile, Ala. April 26.?A slender
black-clad frightened girl stood on
a raised platform today, and while
6,000 Confederate veterans cheered
and while the bands played "Dixie,"
a score or more gray-bearded Confed
erate general officers passed in re
view before her and with uncovered
heads kissed her hand. The young
gild was Miss Lucy White Hnynes. a
granddaughter of the only president
of the Confederacy. The incident was
the climax of the first day's session of
the United Confederate reunion. The
big tent, which is said to hold com
fortably ??.000 people, was packed to
its topmost tier of seats. The sides
had been raised and the throngs nut
side had pressed In. When the now
"Daughter of the Confederacy" was
being presented to the convention the
old veterans went mad. The hand
was playing "Dixie"?three of them
wore but the combined ?_,r'-,.ut:oii could
not drown out the cheers. The vet
erans surged forward, but the ropes
stopped them. Then one by one, the
stately general officers on the stage
moved in review before the frightened
trembling girl and each kissed her
hand as he passed. Miss Hay lies' eyes
tilled with tears and she seemed over
come with emotion as she passed back
to her seat on the arm of her maid
of honor. Miss Ella Mitchell.
Miss Haynes is the "sponsor for the
Southern Confederacy" in the reunion
and takes rank over all other spon
sors and maids.
Meet Next at Little Hock.
Mobile. Ala., April 27.?With Little
Hock. Ark., chosen as the reunion city
for lit 11 and New Orleans endorsed
for the honor In 1915 and with an
election of officers, the United Con
federate Veterans' association closed
its business session tonight.
The program for the election of of
ficers was car 'led out to the letter.
Gen. George W. Gordon of Memphis,
commander of the department of Ten
nessee, succeeds Gen. Clement A.
Evans, of Atlanta, who declined re
election. General Evans was elected
past commander-ln-chief, and Gen. W.
L. Cabell, comander of the trans
Mississippi division was also elected

don, has the distinction of being one
of the four living Confederates who
were actually major generals before

Prof. Frank Evans Addresses Spar
tan burg Teachers1 Association.
Spartanburg, April 30?The meeting
of the County Teachers' association,
held today at the court bouse, was
one of unusual Interest owing to the
fact that Prof. Frank Evans, super
intendent of the city schools, by spe
cial request discussed the subject of
compulsory education. Those who
heard Prof. Evans on this subject
declared that new facts were present
ed and that they had their eyes open
ed. The address was a strong plea
for a law to compel the children to
be put in school, and kept there as
long as necessary.
In speaking of the slipshod methods
generally pursued In schooling or
rather not schooling them, Prof. Evans
said people would not stand Idly by
and watch an animal being punished
and not raise a hand, yet they stand
by every day and see children treated
far worse by not being kept In school
and denied the privileges of an edu
In speaking of the education of the
negro. Prof. Evans said that the Im
pression that an education filled ne
groes' minds with absurd Ideas of
social equality was a false one. He
said he was not afraid of the educated
man, white of black, that it was gen
erally the uneducated whites and the
uneducated blacks who wrangled over
questions of social equality. To his
mind, the educated negro knows his
place, and the more educated the white
man and the negro the further they
get from social equality.
