Accomplishments Since August 15th, {
1921, to Date, and Propositions
Now Under- Consideration
1. During the month of Septem-j
ber, 1921, our Chamber of ( ??nmerce
in connection with the far -: demon-!
stration agent conducted a.resign [
in the interest of divers.;; i of!
crops. During this campaign about
thirty-five community- meetings were
held, the results of which there are
more cover crops in Newberry coun-!
ty today than ever in the history of;
the county. This campaign was re-!
vived during the month of February]
of this year. !
2. Established a credit bureau for ;
the beneiit of merchants and business!
men of Newberry who are members!
of the -ganization; this department!
has rendered and its at the present,
time renndering great service to the
3. Establishd a bureau to protect!
merchants and business men from:
fake advertising and unworthy solic-l
itations, this department has also ren- j
dered a great service and is in position
to render even greater service if
the merchants and business men
would give it proper cooperation.
4. Launched a campaign for the t
building of more homes, but on ac-i
count of the financial conditions this
campaign is being held in abeyance
until some future date, however, the
first attempt resulted in the pledging;
of some twenty new homes.
5. Launched a campaign to encourage
the farmers to take up dairy- i
ing which was really a part of the di-i
versified farming program. This
campaign has resulted in the establishment
of a creamery for Newberry j
which is now doing business and!
within the next few weeks will be in j
full operation.
6. The orgaization has worked
faithfully since it was organized to;
encourage new industries to locate j
in Newberry, but of course, on ac-j
count of financial conditions this,
work has been rather slow, however, j
at the present time the prospects for
two or three new enterprises for
Newberry look very promising.
1. The organization has at all
times cooperated very closely with
the ciiy officials in offering suggestions
and in lending actual work to- j
ward carrying out plans for various
municipal improvements.
8. The organization has likewise.
cooperated with the county officials!
in various movements which meant
the betterment of te county.
9. Some weeks ago the organiza-1
tion took up the matter of the under-;
pass between Prospritv. S. C., and
Little Mountain, S. C., which has:
been closed to traffic since last year,!
with the highway commission of
South Carolina, . and the Southern !
Railway company, and after much |
correspondence on the subject theyj
have been able to get the railroad j
commission to take the matter in i
hand and in a letter received from i
the railroad commission _ dated Mayj
25th, they advise that autom-ebile j
traffic over this highway will not have!
to endure the many inconveniences
in travelling over the detour.
- ~ mi x 1 _ L :
1U. ine organization nas m, va-i
rious times had the question of bet- ]
ter train service up with the railroads
entering Newberry and in a
short time hope to work out a plan
whereby Newberry will have better'
train and passenger service.
11. The organization has received
and answered more than three hun- j
dred inquiries rela^ve to Newberry.)
12. Last, but not least, this organ-;
ization has cooperated with all other j
organizations of the city and county,
in putting across numerous smaller j
TirV?if?Vi cro r\of TYiontinnpH ;
above, and it has at all times worked j
to bring about a better spirit of co-;
operation between the business in- i
terests and the fanners of Newberry i
Note: Neither the secretary i:or!
the board of directors wish to take
credit for any of the work outlined j
above, for without the undivided cooperation
of every member this work
could not have been accomplished. j
"^he scouts of Troop I met at headquarters
last Friday night. After the :
routine business, we discussed our!
summer camp. Those who had
brought their money for the camp
turned it in to the division of finance. |
If the weather permits we hope toj
start Tuesday or Wednesday, but if j
the rain and unseasonable weather1
continue we shall be forced t j nostpcne
our going a week.
It is said the game of golf v/.i - n-'
vented by Scotch shepherds, who, j
having nothing else to do. amused j
themselves by knocking stones acout
with their crooks. They measured:
off their holes :n circles, because in
that way they could keep watch over
their herds. The holes were marked
by a tag of wool attached to a stake, j
An Appeal t"? *he People of Newberry
to Fay More Attention to Their ,
City of the Dead
Editor The Observer:
I noticed in your edition of
12tn the mayor's proclamation f"clean
up week" from May 15:h
20th, urging the various organic-j
tions to cooperate in having a clean
and beautit'ui city. Something has
been done, -some of the stores and
residences are much improved; the
white way lamp columns and hv|
drants have been newly painted and
other necessary improvements are yet
being made to help beautify so interesting
a town.
I have watched the growth an i
progress of Newberry for man\
years; I love the old town and want
to be of service, as I expect to spend
here the remaining dsays alloted to;
me. and to be laid away in its sacred,
sod to await the resurrection morn. j
Along with the improvements be-j
ing made, I would like to see Rose-'
mont cemetery have attention; to'
have funds sufficient for a perma-'
nent perpetual plan for its "up-keep." j
I have wondered why the people of,
?f; good and enterprising a little city j
have paid so little attention to the!
naturally beautiful burying place? j
Kosemont cemetery?where their
own loved dead are resting. The
place could be made beautiful. Can't j
we do something about improving it?;
The name is very attractive; then;
why not make the place so?
I have heard the expression, "The
dead are helpless: the living do not
care." While our cemetery has that j
appearance, I trust it ic not true chat
we do not care. May I say we only;
have not been soncerned in our;
thought in connection with others
that shouhi be equally interested.
Let us get together in des-iring the.
improvement of the grounds where ;
our loved ones sleep and where we
ourselves expect to be at oome time.;
Other towns not so far away have'
beautiful cemeteries; Laurens, for!
instance. The people have made their
.* V. 1 J? I

sacred dead. They would not be:
ashamed to take you to their ceme-;
terv if you were a stranger visiting
there. See the little cemetery at
Batesburg, I know they are proud of'
so beautiful a place for their loved .
dead. Neither of these will compare .
in natural beauty with our own Rose- i
mont. ?
Why rot all lot-owners, and all,
good citizens who care for a nice ,
cemetery to get together and do
things that will tell for Rosemont? i
We contribute of our means for the
Red Cross, Salvationnn r.rmy, Young
r.^en's and Young Women's Christian
associations, the Rescue homes and!
various other good things; but these |
do not improve our cemetery.
Do we really want to improve this!
sacred spot? Or are we just think-j
ing about the money? It will take,
money, and a good deal of it; a few ;
hundred dollars will not do what must:
be done. We must think in the thous-!
ands if we want a beautiful place ami:
wont if loef XK7a mne+ Trstrn -fnr'ficl
for the purpose, invested funds, the i
interest of whiA will keen the cem-1
for all time. Can we have it? i
Do we care to have it? If so, it will j
be a certainty.
Will the trustees of the cemetery j
who have been faithful for many:
years in doing1 all they could to m ike 1
the cemetery presentable, and the'
Civic league call a meeting of the cit- '
izens of Newberry, as well as the lot- j
owners and get some plan started and :
not "let up" till their ideals are!
accomplished? The trustees have j
done the best thefc* could with the i
limited means at their command, j
Most of their money came from the:
sale of lots, and many lots sold have '
not been paid for. If those who nave J
not titles to their lots will consult the!
secretary's books, they could learn j
whether their lots are r.-aid for or not.!
The trustees have r.-j one at work at i
ihe cemetery, as ail money they had :
in hand gave out. They purchased !
the plot of land nortv of the original!
cemetery some years ago, and sold j
all the lots, some of which are not i
paid for yet. The trustees not so'
long ago purchased three acres South
of the original cemetery from the col-;
lege trustees, for which they paid j
SI.800, part of the money being borrowed
from one of the banks, part of ]
which is still due: hence they have no
money to work with. Then, too, I
think it time for the good people of i
our town to take interest in this matter
that should be close to their j
hearts, for they seem interested in !
other things that re^ money.
Rosernont cemetery e.icvM ">e veryi
dear to them.
I may have something -v re to say i
at some time regarding a "perpetual
; care plan," but first let us get this |
matter before the people. While 1
am one of the cemetery trustees, I
am not writing by their request or
I know the trustees are grateful j
I 1
for all the help the town authorities
ami others have rendered.
