terrible because some of the newspapers
have said they would run advertisements
for the prohibitions if they
would pay for the advertising. Why
not? Somebody must pay the bills of
the fellows who are going over the
country making prohibition speeches.
Besides, so far as we have seen, the
newspapers have really been running
a 'lot of free stuff for prohibition.

The editor of The Herald and News
has received the following letter from
the State superintendent of education:
Columbia, September 4, 1915.
Col. E. H. A-ull,
( Newberry S. C,. ;
Dear Colonel: ?
! In a recent issue of /The Herald and!
News, I read your attack on the policy
of the State department of education
with reference to the improvement of
As State superintendent, I have recommended
several activities. Every
recommendation has sought to establish
a homogeneous, home-owning,
home-loving, self-respecting citizenship.
One-fifth of our white population
lives in mill villages. These manufac
turing centers have proved a Diessmg
fry providing work for the operatives
and a market for the farmers Their
schools, however, have been neglected. |
I believe the cotton mill management I
and the cotton mill workers are anx- j
ious for improvement.
The State supervisor of mill schools
and the county supervisor of " mill
schools in Spartanburg are trying to
work out a practical and constructive
program. This program will be an essential
part of the public school policy
_ * XI
ui uie cuiic*
Your suggestions, either in private
or in public, will be appreciated. Since
you are attacking what has been attempted
by me as Sta-*e superintendent,
I shall be grateful for a full statement
of your own views, outlining the policy
you would inaugurate for the betterment
of mill schools,
J. E. Swearingen,
State Supt. otf Education.
We have never made any attack on
the policy of the State superintendent
of education with reference to the improvement
of mill schools, or in any
other manner, so far as we can recall.
Some time ago we did quote with ap
proval an editorial from the Greenville
Piedmont which took tne position that
the mill schools, as they are called,
should be a part of the school system
of the State and should not 'be dealt
with separately, as if the mill people,
or mill workers, were a different people.
If that be an attack, then make
the mast of it. But it seems to us that
you are on the wrong trail, if you are
hunting some one who has made an
attack. We suppose the State superintendent
would call a criticism or a
suggestion that did not agree with his
policy "an attack" on the State department.
Tne very purpose 01 me criticism o; j
the Piedmont was against the effort, i
a? it seemed to us, to treat the people
who live in the mill village as a sep;
arate and distinct race who needed a
separate and distinct plan or system
of education, and also against the mills
owning and operating the schools instead
of having them under the same
board of trustees and the same superintendent
as all other public schools,
and, in fact, endeavoring to encourage
the establishment of " a homogeneous,
home-owning, home-loving, self-re'specting
citizenship," just as the State
superintendent suggests, and the very
thing that The Herald and News com
3 - J
To that end, as we recall i t, the
Pi' dmont did not think it was necessa;y
to have a State supervisor especially
for mill schools. To be frank,
we have felt as much, but we have
not said anything about it for reasons
satisfactory to ounself, and for the further
reason that there are always little
minds ready to question your mo
tives, and who would consider a I
criticism or a suggestion as an attaclc J
on a policy.
You are on the wrong trail, iMr. State
Superintendent, we have made no attack
on you or on the "policy of the
State department of education," and
we have no suggestions to make to
you now, but from time to time, in the
conduct of the editorial policy of The
Herald ?nd News we may have some
thing to say on public matters, and if
they be the schools, or the mill schools
as you term them, we will say it frank. !
ly and plainly and will send you a copy j
ot the paper, as we have heretofore
done. Vv'e might say in this connection,
if your desire is to establish a
hf>ni-: ecus people vvhy have a sep
aratesvstem for the miil schools. Whv j
not have them under the same board
o; trustees and the same superintendent
in the same community. We hope
yeur plan in Spartanburg will work j
out for the good of the citizenship of i
. the State, aDd if it does there will!
i be none more readv to commend it. i
j A e do not now criticise it because we J
j do not know what it is.
i We do not 'believe the mill schools |
should he privately owned and controlled
by the mill corporation, or that
the corporation shou'd pay for the support
of the school, and that is about
what the Piedmont said and what we I
| commended, and that is all the attack
we nave maut; iai as v*e cau uu n
recall. We believe the children of the
mill people should be treated as other
children, and as if they were the children
of the State just as other children
are. That was all. If that is an attack
then we can't help it.

"They were all optimistic, and expect- '<
