LAURENS, S. C., DEC. 8, 1920
The Advertiser is aware that a few
girls from out of Columbia have
sought admission to the University of
South Carolina and have not been able
to realize their ambition because of
financial reasons. The same may be
said of every college in the state. We
nll know also that thousands aspire
to a college education and are not
able to procure it. There are many
thousands more who aspire in vain
for even a high school educntion. The
logic of the situation would be to give
all the boys and girls an eqIual chance
in life, but as yet this hast not been
found practical. leing T'ractical rath
er than logical We have taken and
continue to take the means of the
'poor and rich alike to make possible a
higher education fo: the rich, poor

for conei ience. There coimp's a tite.
however, wlen we can well fford a
restriction of the educational pro

To the sale of blind tiger whiskey
is ascribed by many the wave of crime
that has sl)read over the state. "The
fruit jar is becomin as common as a
wealipon as the old six shooter," says
the Abbeville Press and Hanner and
probably rightfully. In Iaurens
county, we believe, there is less whis
key being made than in many other
counties, due in part to the (iligence
of our peace officers, and less is being
sold. A "crime wave," if there is such,
has not reached this county, and may
be explained by the scarcity of the
white li:ghtning. Determined peace
officers and stern judges can reduce
'the crime wave if they will,, but after
all, the will of the people prevails.
'If the laws are not being enforced
t;ublic sentiment is not being brought
to bear strongly against it. There is
no reason to decry the sale of intoxi
cating whiskey if the people are afraid
to speak out against the offiers who
refuise to enforce the law.

the University, describing this- condi
The city of -Columbia is deriving
from the University as a coeducation
al Institution a decided benefit--even
though the women students, because
they have no building, are cut off
from much of the University student
life. A Columbian may send his
daughter to the University and save
some hundreds of dollars a year and
more Columbians are taking advant
age of the oportunity each year.
The University is a low-priced
school for men. The same standard
of expenses would apply to women if
they had a University home.
Is this coeducational University to
be maintained with specil privileges
for men and for young women of
Columba, while the young women or
other counties are practically ex
(luded frorn it?
Would it be a wise conrse to close
the University to men for a few years
and turn over the dormitories to wo
men? That seems a preposterous
suggestion--but 1 what is un reasoniable
or illogical in it, seeing that the
policy and the law of the state opens
it to woiii.il --T-'lhe State.

reported to be forming rapidly in the

At midnight O'1)ell said the officers
were expecting an attack at any mo

was planned to prevent the building
from being dynamited
Other reports said that several au
tomobiles loaded with men were seen
to leave Appalachia and that an attack
on the jail some time before daylight
had been determined upon by leaders
of the mob. This report coiing from
unofficial sources said the attacking
force was growing rapidly by new ar
rivals from different parts of the coal
fHeld. It was said leaders were pian
ning an early attack to get posse ssion
of the negro before the arrival of
troops from Roanoke. Prominent cit
zens ,it is. said, are trying to dissuiade
the mob leaders from an a ttempt to
stor1m the jail.

Hiding Old Ta'urus
After t ti npleasantness between
the1 States had ended, many Texas
rangers were stranded here in Laurens
COUniy. One was qtuartered on Cap
C'aptain had14 a vicious old bull that
no pasture fence would turn. lie had
him impounded inl a stable and wi'id
Texas was bragging to Capt. Chris
that he could ride anything that
walked on four legs. Christ carried
him out to the lot and showed him
Taurus and asked him to ride the bull.
Texas requested the negro men to
saddle and bridle him. When ready
he called out, Open the gate and let him
loose. The bull went like a blue
streak down the road, until he got
into some timber, then he went to
jumping the bushes to rub Texas off.
Capt. Christ put his fox dogs alter the
bull to hasten his speed. They gave
him a nice race.
In the evening Texas rode old Tair
uis ul> to Capt. Clhris' hou se--.ist as
*entle' as an old plow mule.
