One ventures nothing in af1irming that
the Laurens girls will compare favor
ably with the representation from any
county in the state. In order to make
good this assertion one need not do
more than call the roll: Misses Clayto
Bailey, Marle Mahon, Pearl Martin.
Brucie Owings, Carol Roper, May
Ridgeway , Jessie Ridgpway, Lenora
Thompson, Nellie Thompson
As you see, these are surpassingly
line girls. Returning thanks to the
county for this fine group of girls and
expressing the hope that their tribe
may increase each passing year, I am,
David M. Raamsay.
Yours duly received and I answer at

Presbyterian College of Soutth Carolina
There are0 thirty-five students from
Laurens county in tile Presbyterian
College of Southl Carolina. As a rule,
those who completed thme graded school
at home anld entered the regular F~reshi
man class are dloinig well in their
work. 'Some of them are among tile
b'est students in college, making high
marks and entering actively Into the
life and spIrit of the institution. But
many of those -w1 o did not complete
the gtraded school hefore entering and
have either Sub-Fresh man or irregu
lar work are not doing so well, which
goes to prove that a student should
take his regular preparatory work in
a good graded school and complete the
course before entering college.
Plhe college appreciates very much
the liberal -patronage it receives from
Laurens county. It is an institution
our people may well feel proud of. The
beautiful new science hall and library
Is almost completed. In it there are
7,000 square feet devoted to scilence.
The laboratories are well equipped and
a new gas-plant has been installed in
connection with them. There is 4,000
square feet for library purposes, which
will give ample space for reading and
study rooms In connection with the It
'The gymnasium is complete and is
in use by the students. It has a clear
floor space 40 by 70 feet, 25 feet in
tile ceiling. Tile floor is of hardwood
laid oil concrete, with the sleepers"im
bedded in tar and sand. 'In contection
with the main gyninasium there is ai
other room -for games, and a - physical
director's ofilce, besides shower baths,
toilets and dressing rooms.
Next year promises to' be the most
successful year in tile history of the
college, and tile president lo)e5 to
welcoine this fall a still larger num

importance in the school year, this be

in the pageant, Uncle Sam's birthday,
and the awarding of the prizas found
the tenth grade, which represented
Uncle Sam and his attendants, with a
blue ribbon and the first grade with
a red ribbon.
Following close upon the fair, came
the Teachers' Institute, from the fourth
to the seventh of November, during
which time the teachers from all over
the county had the opportunity of ex
alulning our building, observing our
teachers at work, and of attending
splendid lectures .by Messrs. Hand,
Swearingen and Harms.
Among the helpful things that have
marked our chapel exercises this year,
Is the flag salute that we have all
learned; the German songs by the
tenth grade; celebrations by the pupils
throughout the school, of the birthdays
of Lee, Jackson, Lincoln and Wash
ington; appropriate Thanksgiving ex
ercises, ending with a collection of
$61.90 for the Belgians' Relief Fund,
and lectures by the ministers of the
town and other noted lecturers.
