[The State, 18th.
Hon. A.'C. Woods of Marion has de
lined to accept the presidency of the
outh Carolina college recently tendered
im in so flattering a manner. This
nnounceinent will be received by friends
f the institution throughout South
arolina. The very ground that Mr.
Voods takes for declining the offer
hews that the State is a loser in fail
ig to secure such a man as the head of
ne of her most famous institutions.
On Tuesday the committee from the
ooard of trustees consisting of Mr. Mc
dahan and Mr. MacFarland went to
darion and. waited upon Mr. Woods.
dr. McMahan returned to the city yes
erdey bringing with him Mr. Woods'
leclination, a copy of which was not
vailable until afternoon. The com
nittee talked over the matter fully
with Mr. Woods and was earnest in its
mdeavor to persuade him, but he stood
>n high ground, and could not be moved.
Here is the letter of declination:
Marion, S. C., Sept. 16, 1902.
1on. Miles B. McSweeney, Governor,
Chairman, and Gentlemen of the
Board of Trustees of the South Caro
The great honor you have conferred
n electing me to the presidency of the
outh Carolina college has touched me
leeply, and it is quite impossible for
me to express my profound apprecia
ion. It is a post of duty that has been
eld by the most illustrious men, and
around it cluster the noble traditions of
the past and the bright hopes of the
future. Surely I never could have
thought of myself in connection with
the office, but your deliberate judgment,
reinforced, as it has been, by generous
expressions of approval from other
citizens, whose opinions are entitled to
great consideration, has given me mucl
oncern lest I should fail to see my
luty clearly. To the right man there
is no station in the State of greater op
portunity of usefulness, and none where
successful effort could bring more joy.
[ have tried to think you are right in
regarding me equal to this opportunity,
but then after the most careful consid
eration of the earnest and strong pre
sentation of your views by your distin
uished committee I cannot bring my.
elf to the conviction that I could rea
onably expect to win success. I ami
mtrained in educational matoers, and
without that insight and acquaintance
with the science of education requisite
or the position. The labor of my life
as been in another field, and I am un
ble to resist the conclusion that to make
his change now would be at too great
>eril to the college.
The confidence expressed by your
oard I earnestly trust will stimulate
ne to strive for the greater usefulness
s a citizen.
-C. A. Woods.
