Future of Conference.
Columbia, Aug., 9.?"The first State
Conference for the Common Good lias
greatly exceeded our expectations, lu
attendance and enthusiasm." said the
president, W. K. T?te of Columbia,
yesterday. "Several hundred men and
women, representing all sections of
the State have been in attendance.
Subjects of vital importance in the
life of South Carolina have been dis
cussed, and all the addresses have at
tained a high standard of excellence.
As the meetings progressed the en
thusiasm gained in momentum. In
spite of all that had been said at the
preliminary meeting and it: the print
ed matter distributed by the executive
committee, there were a few people
who at the beginning of the confer
ence still suspected that it was ani
mated by some hidden or ulterior mo
tive. As the conference and every
one who attended Its sessions went
home feeling that it was truly 'a Con
ference for the Common Good." "
"The Conference did not attempt in
any way to cover all the needs of
the State," said the president. "A
few topics had been selected which
the committee deemed most pressing
and attention was concentrated u;
them. The dominant note was ru
ral, though the industrial life of the
Slate came in for a share of atten
tion unusual in the history of South
Carolina conventions. The keynote
sounded by Clarence Poe in his pro
gramme for the development if ru
ral community life in the South, witli
many variations, was well sustained
throughout the conference. Commu
nity corporation, marketing, the work
of the country church, the effects of
home ownership, the country school,
and systems of rural credit were sim
ply subtopics of this general theme
"On the Indstrin) side the confer
ence considered seriously the effects
of home ownership in mill villiages
and methods of bringing this gradu
ally to pass. The address by Mr. Hol
lie, giving an individuality and a
community spirit in typical cotton mill
villages, was a revelation to many of
"The subsidary conferences amply
justified their existence. Perhaps the
largest of these were the farmer's
conference and the woman's confer
ence. The conference of high school
and college representatives showed a
discussion of t> ? topic '.Mutual Ad

in the high sei.1 department here
trance committee is typical of the
Spirit which animated all the special
"it was the judgment of nil In at
tendnnce that another conference
should be held next year. In accord
ance with the plans of organization
agreed upon at the preliminary meet
ing in June, the executive committee
then selected will remain in authority
until the aeyt conference, thus en
abling them to cooperate in the plans
for the county conferences.
"The committee feels tlie great work
of the movement will be done in the
county conferences which will carry
the idea to all the people of the State.
It is not the purpose of the executive
committee to supervise or even sug
gest the methods of organization and
the topics of discussion In the coun
ties. The conference is not an organi
zation : It has no constitution and by-'
laws. It is rather a movement and;
depends for its force upon tlie spirit1
which animates it. It bases its ex
pectation of results on the theory that
when a clear, definite idea becomes
the possession of till the people. .'
will finally bring itself to realization,
it invites patriotic men and women in
the various counties to proceed nlong
similinr lines in the organization of a
forum for the discussion of thing:;'
which are to them worth while. The
executive committee offers to county
organizations looking to this end. It
suggests that representatives of the
county press, tlie church, the school. !
the farmers, the physicians, the law
yers, the industrial workers, and the
business men come together in a pre
liminary organization, to he held later
in the summer or in connection with
the county fairs in the fall.
"The subjects for discussion at tho
county meetings will naturally vary
with the special Interest of the conn
ty. The kinship with the State con
ference will he determined by two
questions only: First, is the move
ment entirely non-polltlcnl? Second,
doe^ it exist for the common good?
Several of the counties have already
taken steps looking toward an organ
ization. It is to lie hoped that he
fore the year closes the movement
will gain headway in a majority of
the counties of Roiltll Carolina. The
president and secretary of tho gen
eral conference invite correspondence
with men and women in the counties
who are willing to assist in the pro
mulgation of the movement." \V, Is.
