ARCIHIE WILLIS IN .$W FIELD.
Well IKniowi Advedtishin dfan, Native
of tlits County, 101118 Ativint Adver.
Friends in .this county of J. Archic
iiIs, native of Gray Court, who has
becn with The Atlanta Jour'nal for a
-number of years, will be interested in
a now connection he has made with
the Geo. W. Ford Adveiising Agency
in Atlanta. In carrying the announce
ment of the change, The Journal had
a very complimentary notice of MNr.
Villis and the line worg 1te has done
on that paper, 'which The.Advertiser
reproduces, as follows: - -
J. Archie [Willis, one of the most
capable and widely-known a(vertis
lng men in the south, left The Jour
nal Monday to become associated with
the (icorge W. Ford Advertising agen
cy, of Atlanta.
Announcement of Njr. Willis' new
Connection will he read with interest
througiout the soutl, for he has
friends in practically every city in
'Dixie and is Particularly well known,
through his work, to -the business
mn of hundreds of cities and towns.
Mr. Willis has3 been -with The
Journal for six years and has been
In the advertising bImsiicss for. more
than ten years. Durin la.,at time he
has won a well-deser eputation
for ability in every ph f adver
.tising second to none.
For the last two ye r. Willis
has conducted the land and industrial
department of Tie Joirnal, a tposi
tion In whIch his worlkN.,Ws nothing
short of brilliant. The p,;qoto of the
department was, "Know hsout and
let the south know you,' -- rl readers
of The .lotrnal will tesjf recalling
the editions of the Sunah4 paper in
whiclh the department tigured promi
nently, that Mr. Willis Ann his asso
clates just about made tha(. motto ap
ply' to every community of, prominence
in half a dozen states.
The higher character 6t Mr. Willis'
work gained him a recognition that
resulted in more than one flattering
offer for his services. He leaves The
Journal with mutiual regret on both
sides, to go with an agency that has
collie rapidly to the fore as one .of the
soutil's most prominent and progres
sive. INIlth such 'well-known advertis
ing men as George W. Ford, T. E. Fal
vey, A. M. Waples and others, Mr. Wil
l1s Is certain to Increase the prestige
and sticcess of the Ford agency to a
ipoint even greater than that which
It now enjoys.
PEEPLES MAY RUN
AGAINST ED SMITH
Issues Statement After Conforence
Here. Will Oppose League.
The Statc, May 4.
Thomas IH. Peeples, attorney gen
eral for three successive terms, will
most likely be a candidate for the
Ujnited States senate this summer in
tht campalgn against . ). Smith.
A conference of a grouip of friends
of Mr. leeples was held in Columbia
yesterday, and wliIle no definlite an
iounceient is made by .Mr. Pleepies
that he will be a caiididate, he says;
lie will be in the race, "provided lily
friends from other counties'' feel Iii
cilined to urge his entrance. Another
Icoiference is to be held within tile
next few weeks.
'Following the conference Mr. Pee
pes issued a statement in whicli he
indicated the chief points of his plat
form, should lie go into the campaign
this summer. le is opposed to the
adoption of the league of nations, along
with the peace treaty, and against the
18th, or prohibition amendment and
the Susan h. Anthony amendment
granting suffrage to women.
Mr. 'Peeiples was elected attorney
general in 1912 and served three sue
cessive termi's In that oilee. In the
summer of '1918 Mr. Peeples vohuni
teered for service in the ITl11ted States
army. .1list prior to the (late for hir
ifnduction into the service at Pa Ic
Alto, Calif., the armistice was signed.
<lie was subsequently commissioned as
nia.lor in the judge advocate generatl's
department In "Washington, where he
served seven months. Only within the
last few weeks .lr. Peeples was com
missioned with the rank of major In
the oflicers' reserve corps and Is sub
ject to call at any time.
'rhe following Is the statement 18
sued by Mr. 1Peples at the concli
sionl of the conference:
"At a conference of my friends from
other counties who have urged me to
day to make the race for the United
States senate I consented to do so,
provided 1my friends from other coun
ties not here today felt the same way
as those present. I 'will await further
expression at a subsequent conference
before definitely announcing my can
didacy. .IHowever, I have no hesitancy
In saying from all present indications
I expect to be a candidate,
I f eel it is Only fair to slate my
platform before asking any fiurther ex..
presslon from my friends. I am op
posed to the Susan 11. Aqthony amend
men i, Which grants o(itial suffrage to
women, and which would allow the
women of our state to vote under fed
eral supervision. I anm not opposed to
Our white Women enjoying the right
orsuffrage anl voting the same as our
White men when controlled by our
state election laws. Otherwise our
primary system In South Carolina
would be destroyed.
'"I am oppose(d to the'adoption 01
the 18th amnendment to the federal
constitution In toto. It cireulmserlbs'6
the Inherent liberties of our people
as the moral stamina of any )eolplc
rests entIrely with the Inividual. Not
can it be recoeciled with the preambli
of the constitution of tle Ilnited States
In Ihat s;entimnent ex I)eVssed as fol
"'To secure the blessings of libert3
to ourselves and to our posterity.'
"I am opposed to the league of na
tIons being embodied lit the peact
treatty. The peace treaty should hi
comitplete( without delay, amd thit
league of niations tak (enI up afterwards
"In other Words. I stand first. las
and always for state rights which
have been usurped by the federal gov
"I will make a more full and de
tailed discussion of these questions at
a later date both upon issues and facts
-facts which 'were ascertalned diring
my recent stay in Washington while
serving as major in the judge advo
cate general's department, where I
had opportunity of constantly bleing In
touch with the affairs of the govern
ment and the eillciency and prestige of
our representatives, both in te sen
ate and in the house."
