In his appointment of the commis- ed

Liked to see the commission appointed -
by Governor Ansel retained in office
is a whole, but the governor has not
een able to rise against certain per
3onal prejudices and it is not surpris- se
ing that some of the members of the Ja
:ommission, known to be politically Cc
unfriendly to him, have been displac- Ca
d. That Dr. Babcock, superintendent 19
Af the hospital, and Dr. Wilson, chair- an
man of the State board of health, p1
would remain on the board was taken th
.or granted. Their professional and ag
Eheir intimate acquaintance with con- fo:
litions at the hospital will be of great S.
value to their new colleagues.
Mr. Aull is one of the few news
paper men of the State who supported
xovernor Blease, and his appointment -
ss a fitting recognition of friendship
in time of need. Mr. Aull is perhaps
s familiar with the affairs of the of
state government as any other man t
n South Carolina. His 'three years or g
nore as private secretary to Governor Ar
icSweeney gave him an excellent op- "I
)ortunity to become acquainted with er;
tl1 departments of the State govern- O
nent, and his later service as a mem- ca.

n that committee since the chairman

The other two appointees are men
>f business experience and both are fa
niliar with large affairs. Mr. Floyd
nade an excellent mayor.of Spartan
urg, where he is highly regarded,
nd Mr. Payne was one of the best
ounty treasurers that the State has

ndeed that the governor has selected
hree such capable citizens for what'
'e must regard as the most import
