With action in the Held among the

of great interest, to note how elfl

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

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

to that of principal of a large rural
graded school or a county rural su

What is South Carolina doing lo

trustees and President Johnson had
to give their individual notes to pre

?college treated in 1921? She was
given almost $20.000 less than in

balance loft from this inadequate ap
propriation might be used to cancel
the debt of honor incurred in the
effort to prevent tho calamity of hav
ing Winthrop close her doors and |
send home her more than one thou
sand students.
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
