Nine Students at Furman Ex
Nine students of Furman Univer
sity at Greenville, baseball players,
have been expelled, one of them for
a year, the others permanently, be
cause of their attack on one other
student of the college., a freshman.
The fight between the lone fresh
man and the nine upper-classmen re
sulted in blood and bruises for the
freshman, but a member of the facul
ty witnessed the fray, and a faculty
meeting was held the same day and
the men expelled. This was last Sat
urday, but Prof. S. E. Bradshaw, of
the Furman faculty, has issued a
statement for the press, explaining
the details surrounding the entir? af
The students who have been denied
the privileges of the institution
claimed that the student they hazed
drew a knife on them, but Prof. Brad
shaw explains that the young man
was sharpening a pencil. The student
attacked, D. J. Lay. suffered wounds
about the head.
Dr. Bradshaw's statement, as made
public from Greenville, follows;:
"A group of students discussed a
remark alleged to have been made by
D. J. Lay, freshman, that certain stu
dents were a 'dirty bunch.' They de
cided to go in search of Lay and in
quire if he made the statement. In
this party were J. A. Lambright, B.
lu Williams, W. C. Wright, R. C.
Stevens, T. Gressette, J. D. Holzclaw,
L. E. Lenhardt, M. C. Crisp joined
the party later. The testimony show
ed that it was the purpose of the
, group when they started in search of
Lay to give him some sort of bodily
punishment. Lay denied having made
the remark attributed him and tried
to avoid a conflict. The knife in his
hand he had been using to trim a pen
cil before he saw the group of stu
dents coming up to him. They asked
him to go to McGee Hall and he re
fused. In the excitement, it seems
that Lay used some profanity, which
he admitted he might have done, but
did not recall it with certainty. It was
impossible to determine how many
blows were struck and by whom. The
testimony showed that J. A. Lam
bright was the main spokesman of
the group in search of Lay. Tatum
Gressette and Lay did most of. the
lighting which was immediately in
front of the library about 9 o'clock
Saturday morning. Lay appeared to
suffer most and came out of the
struggle with a bloody ear and other
bruises. A part of the affair was wit
nessed by a member of the faculty
who happened to be passing at the
time and he immediately exercised
his good offices to disperse the assem
bled students. A meeting of the fac
ulty had-already been set for 9:30 o'
clock, so that it was possible to pro
ceed without delay when the matter
was reported by Dr. Bradshaw. The
students involved were brought be
fore the faculty and gave their testi
mony. The faculty was in session over
five hour's and patiently investigated
the case. As a result, J. A. Lambright,
W. C. Wright, R. C. Stevens, Tatum
Gressette, J. D. Holtzclaw, L. E. Len
hardt and B. L. Williams were direct
ed to leave the university immediate
ly and not return at any time in the
future. M. C. Crisp was suspended
from the institution for one pear and
directed to leave immediately. L. E.
Lenhardt, the only senior involved,
was also permanently denied gradua

I would soon be in the bed and In a
serious condition for I felt so badly

hardly live. My husband asked Dr.

said, 'It's a good medicine, and good

felt greatly improved.. .before taking
