AN EARLY P1AGlANT
Apropos, as Col. iRion .lcKissick of
the Greenville Piedmont would say,
tile controversy which -has been mild
ly waged recently in regard to the
fIrst historical pageant ever held in
the state, The Advertiser ventures to
lay claim for Laurens County to the
dist-inction of having held at least, an
eurlier )ageant than has yet been
lirOuVht. to light. Possibly, after we
have laid Our cards on the table, some
ot-her scribe may lay claim to a still
egirlier pageant, so we will only make
the conservative cla im of priority over
those already unearthed.
A fow days ago The State recalled
the pageant held on the grounds of the
Ilniversity of South Carolina in 19161
apld claimed that it was the ilrst
-pageant held in the state. We believe,
though we cannot place the time, that
The Greenville News had claimed that
the great pageant, "The Keowee
Trail," in which the Cateechee myth
was exp!c , : '( (. e'', I.t! of thie
Piedmont, %%as the first histoli cal
pageant ever presented In the state.
In Thursday's morning paper of' Co
lumbia, a Winthrop college champion
uppIeared wIth an article refreshing
our memory as to the earliest pageant
of them all, that one shown at Rock
.11111 In 1913 when an old l0nglish
pageant was -pro(luced.
:Now, we go still a little farther back
to the year 1912. In that year there
was a pageant given in I.aurens. It
whos not called a pageant. by the ac
complishedl but riural re)orter for The
Advertiser, but pageant it was, just the
same. It .bore every resemblance to
a pagecant andl may have been called
that !by its producer, MIss WViI Loo
Gray, bitt the ntame, insofar tas the
newspaper r'eport 'is concerned, wvas
The repoit of this, as taken from
The Advertiser of October 23, 1912,1
was as follows:
"An addiltional uini(Iue and1 succss
fuil feature of the fair' yesterday and
one that, in Itself, wvas largely educa
tidnal in its nature, was 'thie exhib't
and ':arade of floats symbolical of
ev~ents and Idleas closely connected
with American histoi'y and lIfe. These
floats were gotten up, with one excep)
tidn, by the rural schools of the couna
-ty.: T his ecotlon wvas tho .beautiful
floait of the klndergarten school, of the
La~urcns mill village. Prizes of $10
anal $5 wvere offered for the floats best
regresenting the idea selected. The
first prize .was won by the Bailey
schocol, representing 'The Nations of
thd 'World'. The Bailey school Is
tai ght by Miss Winona Riley and has
aDR pt forty pupils. The second prIze
'war Won by ,the Prospect school, Miss
Idr~ Turner, 'teacher, the float repre
aer fing 'Applied iArts'. The Lanford
school, with a float representing 'The
Los0t Cause' andl 'Southern Chivalry'
becauso of the sentiments It presented,
was gIven a voluntary contribution of
$6.O0 'by Miss dEmma 'Dial, of Gray
Court, All of the floats were beau
ttitlly gotten up and showed that a
.gregt deal of work-and study had been
giv~1n to thekrypreparation. As one of
the; tadher's kaid at the olose of the
da~ 'I have never seen children so
stIrred up over winn-ing the first
'pride. It Is surprising how much
study they gave It and how anxIous
they wore to :wdn Ifirst place.' 'And,'
.he said, 't-ho trustees ,were Interested
too.~ One of themi said that he would
raileor lead given one of the mules
Iul1$hg the 'wagon tihan to have lost
(he "'ir t -prize.' "lhe children de
rived great deal of benefit from their
studf in getting -the' floats- up and tpe
feat 1e eeigiInly centrlibutes to the
edu tip~a)t egress of the county.

also by reason of a misunderstanding ]
as to time for the parade, two floats
said to have 'been extremely beautiful,
(i( not reaoh the city In time to take
part in "the exhtbit. These schools
were the Fleming school, taught by
Miss Nannie 'Creidgiton, typifying 'A
'S'ettlement in North Carolina,' and
the Friendship school, Miss Nannie
Wallace, teacher, with a Iloat repre
senting 'Ceres, Goddess of the Uar
vest'. Other schools not already men
tioned and taking part in. the exhibit I
were the Rockbridge school, 'Colum
hus Crossing the Ocean',; Gray Court- I
Owings, 'Ilawatha'; Mills school, 1
'Pioneer North Carolina,; Trinity- I
Ridge school, 'United States at Pres
ent Day'. It is confidently predicted
that next year at least twenty-five
flods ,will take a part in this feature
of the falir. The idea of the school I
exhibit originated with Miss Wil Lou I
Gray, rural school supervisor for Lau- t
rens county, and it was largely I
through her efforts that such a credi
table exhibit was iade."
It may truthfully be said, then, that
barring future pageant exposures Lau
rens may lay claim to the introduc
tion of pageantry in South Carolina I

supervisor of adult schools, was its
