It is of great interest, to note how elfl cieutly tho Winthrop girl is render ing service to South Carolina. Tho phases of work through which this .service is rendered vary widely from that of a mot her. dod rather closely to her home in a remote part of Berkeley or Morry county, to that of one leading the social lite in the busy mart of Charleston or helping to di rect the affairs of state In Columbia. In tito teaching profession the service varies from that of a f?cher In an isolated one-teacher school in the mountain wilds of the northwestern part of the Stato or In tho undevel oped sections of the Snnteo swamps to that of principal of a large rural graded school or a county rural su pervisor, or hoad of a collegiate de partment in some of our leading col leges of South Carolina. In the Held of Industry again tho service Is va ried. In tho Pee-Deo section a Win throp girl Is directing the manage ment of a large tobacco and cotton farm, and another owns and dlrocts the work of a large greenhouse, has acres of carnations, Which she mar kets in Washington, D.

After spend ing the night in the charming home of a Winthrop daughter, Miss Mabel Montgomery, she arose to hoar her and lier mother discussing tho price of cotton and planning to make n salo A little later she was invited to go around to the city schools an 1 was told that tho superintendent was putting in religious education Into Hie schools, each denomination or ganizing its work in connection with the school. This was the day for the Methodists to organize, itoaching the school building at recess, she was greeted by a number of Winthrop girls in charge of the various class rooms, and then she learned that tho young woman to take charge of this religious education In tho primary department was Miss Mabel Mont gomery, a Winthrop girl. The ono doing the work in tho Junior depart ment was Mrs. Lonnie Lettner, for merly Mips Estello Anil, another "Winthrop girl; and, if not mistaken. Mrs. L. ?). diide, nee Miss Fleetwood Montgomery, another Winthrop girl, was to have charge of the senior de partment.

This body of young women showed that they wore greatly concerned also fo' tho boat interests of Marion county. They hud learned that there was a movement on foot to have 'tho salary of the young woman who is giving efficient service ns rural school supervisor struck from the county budget. They agreed to see their rep resentatives about this matter, as well as that of adequate appropria tions for Winthrop, and to urge those men to support heartily both of these. Wit li this illustration before us and it is only one of many that could be given-tho statement that the Winthrop girl ..s rendering efficient service to home, school, church and j State may be reiterated with empha- j sis. j What is South Carolina doing lo support Winthrop College-the one ' institution chartered for the higher education of young women?

In comparison with what has been done for tho higher education of men the State has never been generous with Winthrop College. For the per manent plant she has appropriated during the thirty-six years of the life of the colloge only a little more than $700,000. She has been appropriat ing for the men nt tho University for more than a hundred years, for men at tho Citadel (with some year* ' o' Interruption! siuci 18 12* and lei itt < ie m son KIIICO ?&90. in the pus) three yea rs there in's boen rtjji prepr'ai.od foi ? i . o? tues* in bri's ilioi j . j,u for a new iioin?.
