A CHANCE FOR WOMEN
)pportunity School At Lander Col lege, Greenwood The State Department of Educa ion with the cooperation of the Joard of Education of the Upper !outh Carolina Conference will onduct a unique school at Lander !ollege beginning July 24 and clos ig August ID. This school is for iris over fourteen and women who 1 youth did not master the i> R's'\ While emphasis will be laced on teaching reading, writing rithmetic and spelling, yet the ;udent will have all the cultural j antact connected with a Christianj oilege. Aside from ami worK 01 le class room there will be pood ^ures, musicals and educational ictures. The dates selected for holding le school were chosen because Ali ust is often a vacation month in oth country and mill and so will ermit the women to utilize their acation in a most valuable way. The school is non sectarian and on denominational. The teachers re among the best in the state and ere appointd because of their pe lliar fitness. In addition to the jgnlar teachers there will be call 1 to their assistance the 'best ained experts and specialists to ve talks and demonstration les >ns on the preparation of foods, ome nursing, personal hygiene, | te. Any girl or woman who hasn't jmpleted the fifth grade and who innot attend a public school will e admitted. Expenses for the onth have been reduced to a mini* um board of $12.50, laundry 50 jnts per week, books $1.50 to 2.50 and railroad fare. The classes will be small and the upils will be classified according to aility rather than grade, thus per litting very rapid progress to be bade. In one month it will be pos ble for an adult to make as much A'lJ A l! I rogTess as a cnna in an enure ear. The educated public is asked to . ssist in making this school a sue- ,] ;ss by calling it to the attention f girls and women in need of s"ch , ( truction.

Summer schools for teachers, min i sters, and doctors are an acknow edged fact; no doubt about the leed for training there. Why not summer schools for illiterate wo nen? Is it not fitting that the Up per (Methodist Conference and the Staftel (Department of Education shoud join hands to lift these wo men from the darknes and isolation Df ignorance, should plan to give [hem a monui 01 actual uibuumun n the needed three "R's", a month of dwelling in college atmospherfe among cultural ideals? Such a school should be com - - * n ?1 I mended by every patriotic ooutn Carolinian anxious to do his or her part in eradicating illiteracy. The school's possibilities should 'be sounded far and wide, that those who need it may bear and be sent by interested friends. GREATER NUMBER OF BOLL WEEVILS Department Urges Farmers To Get Busy And Begin Using I'oison Washington, July 6.?The num ber of over-wintered boll weevils this year is far greater than usual, according to rccords on the emer gence of the insect from nearly all of the cotton States, accumulated by the Delta laboratory of the Bu reau of Entomology of the United States Department of Agriculture, a> Tallulah, La. This situation was fore-east some months ago. In many districts where accurate counts have been made, there are now as many weevils in the fields as are ordinarily present a month later, when the first summer-bred brood has started to appear. With any thing like normal weather condi tions this is going to mean a tre mendously rapid increase in the weevil damage, and this will have an important bearing on the pro gram., to be followed by those using calcium arsenate for the control of the weevil. Ordinarily the department re r>/vrwmorn4c c + a T-ti n-cr ."rvnisnninp' when from 10 to 15 per cent of the cot ton squares have been punctured by the weevil. As a general rule this condition does not arise until after the newly-bred weevils have start ed to emerge from the squares. This year, however, many fields have been fotind where there are already sufficient weevils present to destroy practically all squares as fast as formed. In other words, such cotton will never start bloom ing unless the weevils are con trolled, and from the very outset 50 per cent or more of the squares are punctured. "It is necessary to poison earlier than ever 'before. There is no advantage in poisoning ;he cotton before the squares form, is the weevils are continuing to emerge from hibernation during ;his period and furthermore they ire doing the crop no 'harm. Where i heavy infestation occurs it will >e advisable to make the first ap >lfcation just as soon as the cotton cnnifinfl -frpplv. or about > tuivj cvjuuxi.i,, 7 ? ^ he time the plants average from I to 5 squares each. The regular joisoning schedule should be start ;d at that time and continued alor.g he lines of the usual recomm *"-da_ ;ions for controlling this par?y in. testation of weevils. Another very important effect of ;his heavy infestation will be felt ater in the season. When the wee_ *"* 1 /IIS nrst ?merge iruui mvci aawtvu ;hey move around very little as ong as they can find an ample sup ply of unpunctured squares for their use but just as soon as the in festation becomes sufficiently heavy to puncture practically all squares these weevils start to m?ve n search of fresh pastures. In an jrdinary season this means that a farmer usually has only the weevils t>red in his own cotton to contend with until some time from the lat ter part of July to the end of Au gust, depending on the locality Migration of weevils will probably start several weeks earlier this vear than usual; and, in addition to having to control his own infes tation earlier by poisoning, the planter can expect that before the fruit set during the period of pro tection has had time to mature there will be an immigration of weevils from unpolsoned cotton. Every day a large crop of new weevils will move into these poison ed fields and it is going to take continuous, thorough poisoning to protect to maturity the crop that * * '1 5 'Vtr nas Deen auowea iu act vj earlier applications. Successful weevil control this year is going to require more ef fort and more poison per acre than has ever been the case in the past. On the other hand, wherever the land is sufficiently fertile to justify the effort, the increase In cost per ?-* rrnmKor tttic UUC UU U1C mvicaovu of applications of poison necessary will be more than offset by the fact that weevil damage without poi soning will be far greater than nor mal an (J the margin of profit on the successful crop is tremendously increased.

Unlike the spring planting ''the early bird does not catch the worm" in case of the second or fall crop. Therefore, farmers and gardeners should inform them selves and not handicap their pro duction by planting too early, warns Geo. P. Hoffmann, Extension Horticulturist. The South Carolina Experiment Station recently conducted a series of experiments and found that best results and maximum yields were obtained by planting between July 10 and August 1, depending upon the climatic conditions of the sec-, tinn of the state?warmer climates J calling for the later planting. Of the many varieties suitable for fall planting the Lookout Mountain seems to be the most popular and is usually recommend ed as being the best, not because of the superior eating quality, but be cause of its keeping quality. Sub stitutes for this variety may be such spring varieties as Cobbler and Early Rose, both of which are good but not so good as the Lookout 'Mountain In keeping quali ty and yield. TIip same soil recommendations applying to the spring crop will ap ply equally well to the fall crop. The Irish potato delights in and grows to perfection on a rich, sandy loam soil underlaid by a clay subsoil retentive of moisture. But the absence of such soil should not be a hindrance in the growing of Irish potatoes for home use, as this crop adapts Itself to a great diversity of well drained auiia. FRENCH BONDS DECLINE Belgian Securities Suffer In New j York Market |j New York, July 11.?Selling of j French and Belgian government bonds, evidently based on appre hension that latest developments in Germany may necessrtate complete revision or modification of today's bond dealings on the stock ex change. On very persistent liquidation, French 7 l-2s and 8s suffered ex treme reversals of 2 1-2 and 3 points respectively, vhile Belgian 7 l-2s and 8s showed gross declines of 2 1-4 to 3 points. In neither in stance were final prices much above minimum quotations of the day. Practically all of the so-called French municipals and other loans of that character floated here dur ing and after the war, showed simi lar depressing tendencies. The three-city French loan (Bor deaux, Lyons and Marseilles) of 6 per cent denominations, depart ment of Seine 7s, Soissons 6s and 'Pairis-(L)yons- Mediterrean Railroad ] 6s, were lower by 1 1-2 to 3 points. J Some of the neutral issues of j Northern Europe reacted in sym- I pathy, but British loans were firm I to strong, reflecting the steady | tone of exchange on trade. j Only one crevasse has occurred in the Colorado River, which has been in flood for three ?r four weeks, hav ing reached about 27 1-2 feet at Yuma the 10th of June. The break j in the levee was at Blythe, in River- jj side County, Calif., where the river j overflowed several thousand acres. | j It is expected by the Weather Bu reau of the United States Depart ment of Agriculture that the river will fall from the 11th of June un til the last snow melts and then rise slightly a little later on account of the melting of the snow at the high est elevations of the upper drainage area. 6 6 6 CURES MALARIA, CHILLS AND FEVER, DENGUE OR BILIOUS FEVER.
