Winthrop Seeks Ideal of
Kock Hill, July 1.-It is becom
ing more and more a settled idea that
the plant of the great educational in
stitutions should be in use all the
year and Winthrop is fast approach
ing that ideal. Over 2,000 people have
met for various activities at the col
lege since commencement May 31.
Two days after the students left
from every county in the state came
400 women and girls, representing
the home demohstra'tion clubs and
the tomato and pig clubs. Before they
left the members of the State Sunday
School association came in to the
number of 727 from outside the city,
over 40 counties being represented.
A few days after this meeting the
summer school began,, for which
about 1,000 registered. There was an
attedance of 42 upon the conference
of city superintendents land high
school pincipals, held during the past
Other meetings scheduled during
the summer session are a short
course for women, July 4 to 16, a
conference of nurses and hospital
workers, a conference of teachers of
adult illiterates, and a conference of
members of the League of Women
With the opening of the Regular
session September 21, Winthrop will
pretty nearly have fulfilled the' ideal
of all the year work. In fact the ac
tivities will be suspended only long
enough to permit the renovation of
the buildings in preparation for the

Foch Sends July 4th Message
to United States.
Paris, July 3.-Marshal Ferdinand
j Foch of France, commander-in-chief
.? of the allied armies, today sent
through the Associated Press a mes
sage to the American nation on the
occasion of tht. anniversary of the
declaration of independence.
The message embodies a tribute to
the American army, paid by the man
who led to victory the allied forces
with which that army fought, and to
the people of the United States as a
whole for their "unparalled effort in
every branch of national activity"
which did so much to bring ultimate
triumph to the allied armies.
It was Germany's intention, says
the marshal to settle the fate of the
entente before United States could
engage effectively into the struggle,
but America, "acting strongly and
quickly, ruined the plans of our ad
Mashal Foch goes fully into the
record and details the various steps
through which American help was
given the forces arrayed against Ger
many in the great struggle. He points
out the needs of the allied fighting
fr?nt in the early stages of the cru
cial 1918 campaign, and how, item
by item, the American aid to meet
those needs was given-in men, ships
and supplies-as a result of the con
centrated national effort, and final
ly the great and telling part played
by the American army organization
-on the battle fields and behind the
lines in France. 1 ,

AN EMPTY JAIL THAT STAYS
A recent issue of Capper's Weekly
tells of a county which is proud of
its jail because it is empty and stays
empty. Washington County contains
900 square miles. It has 19,000 in
habitants. In the days before prohi
bition it had use for a county jail
with accommodations for sixteen pris
oners. But vacant county jails in Kan
sas and vacant poor houses, are an
oft-told story. -The paragraph is
printed for Eastern consumption
merely. How long could 19,000 people
in any wet community get along with
out a jail and perhaps an insane
asylum? Even in sparsely settled ru
ral Kansas prohibition has proved
that it was booze and the open saloon
which promoted about 75 per cent of
all the crimes .
The Waitress* Revenge.
This girl doesn't pretend to be in
the statesmanship class. But she
showed a telephone manager a thing
or two in simple justice.
She had had occasion to do some
long distance telephoning fom Still
water, where she is a waitress in a
restaurant. She did not get the party
with whom she wished to talk. Never
theless she had to pay for the mes
sage under the Burlesonian station-to
station, person-to-person system.
A day or two later the manager of
the telephone company at Stillwater,,
to whom she had protested in vain
for charging her merely for "the re
port" that the party she wished'talk
to was not available for conversation,
was waited on by this waitress.
Among other things he ordered was
cherry pie. He was advised that the
larder was innocent of cherry pie at
that time. As he came up to the cash
ier he noted on his check that the,
pie was "charged to him just the
He, protested, somewhat violently
just how violently one may imagine
by picturing himself in his place. But
the waitress was there with the quick
reply that the charge was for "the
report" that there was no cherry pie
to be had.
This pie story ought to travel the
length and breadth of the land. The
charge the waitress made was exactly
as legitimate as the charge she had
been compelled to pay.-Sioux Falls
NEW ENFORCEMENT CHIE
CALLS UPON LAW- ABIDING
PUBLIC FOR COOPERA
The new Federal Prohibition Co:
missioner, Roy A. Haynes, of Hil

"In unmistakable language Amei

made for it. Laws have been ennac
ed for its enforcement. The la

man or agency which condones i

"At the very outset of my admii
istration of this office I want 1
preach the gospel of the need of la
enforcement. If . there was ever
time in the history of America whe
all good citizens should unite on
program for law enforcement, in tl
home, in the school, in. the churc
and in the press, it is today. To 'wini
at the breaking of one law an
preach the observance of another ;
unpatriotic and un-American. On ths
basis, I believe former so-called lil
erais will as vigorously aid in the ei
forcement of the dry laws as thos
who always have been dry. Any othe
policy toward law in general mean
chaos; means Bolshevism.
Aid of Press Invited.
"I am a newspaper man by profe:
sion. I have full knowledge of th
power of the press. I believe n
agency has more power in the wielc

much power. I appeal especially t

scenario writer, to the playwright, t

news story, the film or the l?gitim?t

ment or inferential suggestion tha

should be violated, that it is a joke^
is harmful not only in the warpin
of sentiment against the enforcemen
of this one law, but obviously such ir
fluence leads to a disregard of lay
in general. Such suggestions creat
in the minds of the young an unfai
and unfortunate attitude and en
courage among irresponsibles th

Regard for Laws Urged.
"I wish that we might have ii
America a revival of regard for th
sanctity and majesty of the law.

loyal citizen. I pledge, God helping

as all laws, generally and properly

this splendid result and high aspira

the patriotic program of believing,

gospel of law enforcement. To this
piaf orm I shall devote all of my; en

the cooperation of all true, broad
minded, patriotic Americans, who put
love of country and regard for its
very foundation--law and order-in
their proper relationship."

HIGH COST OF LOW LIVING.
By Dr. James I. Vance, in Charleston
It was not a preacher but a law
yer who said it. That makes it ar
resting. He said it in an after dinner
speech, which makes it more arrest
ing: "The high cost of low living."
Low living comes high. The most
expensive thing in the world is sin.
' Let the young man who has wasted
his substance in riotous, living go on
the witness stand and tell what he
thinks about it.
Walk through an alcoholic or a
syphilitic ward in a hospital, and
look at the rotting bodies of the poor
wretches who are paying the price
bf sin, and reach your own conclu
sion. .. i
The cheapest thing in the world is
just to do right.
But the money cost is the smallest
item of expense in low living.
The man who stamps on conscience
and crucifies ideals and follows the
beck and call of the lower side of his
nature, following on in the track of
lust and sensuality, sacrifices the fin
est and noblest things in life.
His own nature is paying the price.
He is daily dropping down into the
animal. The law in his members is
triumphing over the law in his mind.
