Krent of Mach Importance to the High
Schools Of South Carolina will be
Palled off on April 29th.
The committee on high school ath
letics at the University of South Caro
lina has completed Its plans for pro
gressive activity during this year and
announces the second annual inter
high school athletic contest for Satur
day. April 29, on the university ath
letic field, in Columbia.
This activity on the part of the uni
versity comes In answer to the vital
need in South Carolina for better and
more systematic participation In ath
letes and as an evidence of the desire
of the university to be of service to
the people ol the State In every way
possible. The plans are broad and
comprehensive. P. B. Schotleld, head
of the department of physical educa
tion, has done good service in direct
ing the organization of county athletic
associations and the encouragement of
county meets. Several sections of the
I State have already well conducted
1 athletic contests, which is but evi
dence of the crowing tendency toward
this featur f education.
tire in Contest.
A circular letter has been sent
throughout the state announcing the
contest. The university will enter
tain all contestants, five from each I
school, for supper on Friday, through
Saturday and for breakfast on Sunday.
The events will be in the following or

Eligible schools are those having nine

cents per man must aceompanx the
application, which must be in before
April -0. No more than two men for
each school will 1 e permitted in euch
event. Medals will be awarded the
Individual winners and a trophy cup
to the school making the most points.
The most valuable feature, perhaps,
of tl'.e committee's work is the pub
lication and sending forth ol a book
lel containing directions for the con
tests and training hints for each of
the events of the meet. Those are
short, to the point and very interest
ing as well as instructive and have
be.mi in great demand.
Correspondence l nvitcd.
Mr, Schotleld invites correspondence
on this subject and holds himself in
readiness to visit localities so desir
ing him. to lend his aid In promulgat
ing healthy athletic activity. He will
be glad to mail copies of the booklet
on "Training" or to give other infor
mation to any who desire same.
Over "0 schools have signified their
intention of participating in the State
contest this year and a great increase
over this number Is confidentially ex
pected. Further plans and announce
ments will he made public in the near
future through the press of the State.

100 Million Dollars
Worth of Shoes
These are stupendous figures, yet this is the yearly
amount that the South spends for shoes. As a curiosity
these figures may attract you for a minute, but the most
curious thing about them is that three quarters of this
money is regularly sent away from the South and the
South is that much poorer for it.
You trade at a Southern shoe store. You give the
dealer your money. You probably buy a western or
northern made shoe. When the dealer pays his bill, this
money, less a small per cent to the dealer, goes north or
west and the South is that much poorer.
Keep your money at home. Let it work for better
times, better wages, more factories, more work for
Ask your dealer for The Craddock Shoe. Made in
the South, by white labor, for Southern gentlemen. The
best shoe value offered by any maker in the land for
$3.50 and $4.00. Money spent for Craddock Shoes stays
in the South, and pays Southern labor, Southern grocers,
bakers and butchers.
It builds Southern factories, homes and schools.
We can support more and better industries. Let's
