We wonder if the hltiuble brjekayer
making his $8.00 a day aspires to give
his kids an education so they may
have a chance in the world.
What (10 Ou reckon the hens think
about the high price of eggs? Do they
complain about tile profits between
the aroducer and consumer?
School teachers at Gatfney have pe
titioled for a i inimnumnt salary of $90

The school trustees are 'i) against a
stiff proposition. The teaclhers must
have more and the people, living in
luxury, are complaining of taxes. The
situation can be solved only by facing
the Issue. We are to have good schools
or we are not to have them. If we de
cide that we want them and cannot
pay for them while maintaining the
muchly flaunted "American standard
of living" then we will have to reduce
this standard by giving i) some of
the things it calls for. If we want
schools and cannot. have them and a
blig time too, we will have to do away
with the big timle.

There is nothing like -team work.
Yesterday was "Clean-Up Day" at the
University of South Carolina. Thle
campus needed attention. Tie pro
fessors and men students and women
students were organized into two regi
ments with all the commanding offic
ers and staff positions that could be
thought of and at 9 o'clock they went
at it hammer and tongs or shovels
and rakes, and found plenty to do,
which they did, of course, as the
members of tie Legislature had been
especially invited to witness the very
unusual performance. The State said
"T.ihe morning is to be spent in clean
ing up the camipurs, replanting the mle
morial trees which lhave died since
Arbor Day and otherwise beautifying
tihe university caripus, which has for
a lon g tlime surffe ed fromt a lack of
attention, finally reaching such a state
that tie students decided to take tie
matter into IhIr hwn hands and
spend the holiday tomorrow at work,
removing all signs of this long neg
At I o'clock a barbece dilinerI was
served by "the womeni of tIre camPus"
to the workers in the tieh, and to the
mellibers of the ILegislature. an(d here,
again, it -will be noted that the stir
dents and the statesmen maintained
the tIroe traditiois of the State by
eating. The wonmei, as usual, pre
pared the food and he omen, a1s ursmal
ate it. or of it, as they say in Laaurens.
Th'lere is one statemernt about tire
event, however. that Nwe do not < luite
