The proposal to erect a dormitory
next year for female students at the
University is ill-timed. The financial
condition of the state dloes not warrant
a large eX liend iture of money for this
purpose, whe n piei:o.le are alrcady
sorely pressed and the demands for
such a building are not apparent. The
few ." 0om1en1 who desire to take the uni
versity course now are evidently not
being prevented from doing so by lack
of living accottnodations in ColumbI~ia
and we do not hear of others who
have been barred from the university
cours. through lack of dormitory
space. The state has made liberal
provi:;ion for the women at Wtinthrop
and the few who are not satisfied with
the courses it affords are being reas
onably cared for by the good people
of Columbila, so why not give the tax
payers a little rest?

While the ';)resent business lepres
sion is largely a natural result of the
world's impoverishment following the
war, the war's effects have been aggra
vated by the stubborn and shortsight
ed policy 9f Secretary Houston and the
Federal Reserve Board. The two tak
en together and with the assistance of
henry Ford's pronouncement on auto
mobile prices have about scared the
country out of its wits, creating money
stringency and business depression
entirely out of keeping with the
sound financial condition of the coun
try. Besides sound business judgment
with somec provisions for marketing of
our products, we need now more than
anything else sonic steadying
influence to restore confidence. One
thing that could go far toward a
renewI of coniblence w ould be the
luri P'of lis ;1Ziunt rate:: by the Fed

TIME NOW RIPE
FOR LIVE STOCK
County Agent Urges Farmers to Stay
in Live Stock Business Rather Than
To Laurens County Papers:
The folohwing is a circular letter
just out from Clemson College, and
prepared by W. J. Seely, Extension
Animal -1iusbandman. I think this
worthy of the attention of the farmers
of Laurens County.
"To Cattlemen of South Carolina:
The time was never better to go into
the live stock business, nor was it
ever better for those that are in to
stay in. There is a tendency for some
to cash out on account of the shortage
of money. This is a mistake, for live
stock prices are bound to become set-.
tied and breeding stock will be higher,
a much better plan is to feed the
breeding herd through the winter,
keep the cows in flesh by running
them in the velvet bean fields or by
feeding silage, stover, hay and straw
and a little cotton seed meal and vel
"Coy's that are wintered w:ell bring
better calves in the spring. They are
in a better condition to furnish milk
to grow out the calf and get him ready
to eat grain.
"The cattlemen 'who sell veal calves
will find that their caves wil grow out
and develop much faster in the spring
if the cows are wel wintered.
"Do not let the breeding cows get
too thin during the winter months for
the cost of replacing flesh is mor-' than
twice that of maintenance.
"The following few suggested ra
tions will be helpful in wintering
"No 1-Corn .silage 18 lbs.; oat
straw 10 lbs; cowpeas or peanut hay
No. 2-Corn stover (shredded) 11
lbs.; oat straw 8 lbs.; cowpea or pea
nut hay 4 lbs.
No. 3-Corn silage 25 lbs.; cotton
seed hulls (or straw) 10 lbs.; cotton
seed meal 1 1-2 lbs.
No. '.-Peanut or cowpea and grass
hay mixed 15 lbs.; straw 5 lbs.; velvet
bean in pod 4 1-2 lbs.
No. 5--Run in corn and velvet bean
Since there will be qsuite a quantity
of peanuti hay for sale in the lower
part of the state. livestock men rh'ii
make the best use of it in feeding cat
'le and hors:;en rather than Lilying
in ho s.''

Southern products. The company,
with a capital stock of $6,000,000, has
been organized in the 12 Southern
states and would, Mr. Matthews said,
be ready for operation by January.
"The best bankers nwho haye studied
the situation are unanimous in their
expression of approval," Mr. Matthews
said, adding that "any banker who does
not take an interest in the conypany
will be a back number." M r. Mat

paign committee in charge of the or
ganization work in South Carolina.
Representative W. F. Stevenson fol
lowed Mir. .Matthews, describing the
purposes and intents of the Edge act,
under which the international bank
ing company is to be organized and al.
so defending the federal reserve board
from what he termed "a very great
misunderstanding which has gone
abroad." The Edge act, Nir. Steveison
said, was plromulgated for ino pur
poses: To make the United States the
banking center of the world and to
provide for these export con panics

D. R. Coker of Hartsville and E. 11.
Pringle, Jr., of Charleston also ad

company while Richard 1. ,lanning
presented a 'plea of assistance from
