The annual meeting of the New- i
berry Country eiub was held in the j
court house on August 8th. The pros- ;
ident, .Mr. Z. F. Wright, made a veryj
interesting report to the members ai- :
so the financial report made by the
treasurer showed that the club was i
or sound footing and that the finan-:
ces were in good shape, other com-;
mittees reported that the lake had !
been completed, that work was near- j
ing completion on the clu;') house, j
that the electric light and power line j
was being constructed, and also the j
golf committee said that they were j
working on the golf links and getting |
it in shape.
I At the annual meeting the follow-!
ing directors were reelected for a 1
Term of three years: Welch Wilbur, j
T. Roy Summer and Geo. Y. Hunter.
At a meeting of the directors the |
following officers were reelected for!
the ensuing year: Z. F. Wright, pres-:
ident; L. G. Eskridgt, vice president.)
and W. B. Wallace, secretary and j
P treasurer. !
1 We now have a membership paid i
up of 1335 members, the club is anx-!
icus to get this number up to 200,!
and then we can't take any more into;
the club.
The annual meeting: gave the di-!
rectors the authority to purchase the '
land on which the ciub is situated I
from Mr. Welch Wilbur, and after
this the directors have closed a deal
with Mr. Wilbur for the land consist-!
ing of 55 acres, for the sum of ?5,500.00.
Newberry and the county
are proud of our Country club and!
they have a right to be proud of it;
for it is a credit to the city and
^ county.

election a large number of ballots;

Denies Reports That Causes Other'
Than Fuel Shortage Is Reason
For Closing
Detroit, Aug. 29?Reiteration that >
Henry Ford was "not bluffing" in'
his decision to shut down his big automobile
plants here on September
16, as part of a fight against what
he terms a "hold-up'' on the part of
coal brokers, and denial o* various
reports that causes other .han the
1 fuel shortage were responsible for,
| his action, were made today at the
f Detroit manufacturer's offices,
ft A report from Louisville that when
J the 75.000 Ford workers in the De-1
troit district were released on Sep-'
tember 1G Mr. Ford would advise
them to take employment with the
railroads in an effort to break the
rail strike, was denied emphatically.
The statement was termed ridiculous.
"There may be individual cases of
Ford workers anticipating the lack
of employment making application
fcr work with the railroads," it was
stated, "but Mr. Ford certainly is
not going to advise the men to at- j
tempt to break the rail strike."
Another report that met the em-!
ph3tie denial was that lack of business
figured in the decision to close ;
the plants. Figures were cited to re-'
fute it. "Wh?n the decision to close :
the plants was reached." it was stated,
"we were four weeks behind in
orders for Ford cars and three weeks!
_ _ i
behind in orders far Lincoln cars.
We had only just caught up on or-;
ders for tractors." The decision to.
suspend operations came, it was re-!
iterated, at a time when the Ford
company was doing the greatest'
business in its history. Production'
v figures showed 5.100 cars bein<* turned
out daily against orders for 5,200 |
a day, it was pointed out.
A statement from Secretary Hoo-j
! -
ver that present prices of coal would
add but $1.50 to the price of Ford
cars also came in for sharp criticism,;
and the inquiry:
' Does Mr. Hoover think we should
turn over to the profiteers from $7,000,000
to $10,000,000 that would be
represented in the increased cost of
There were no developments during
th? day, it was said, to support
the hope that the shut-down could be
A. R. Presbyterian.
The A. R. P. church has followed
with much interest the development
of the Hill-crest mission. This work
has always appealed to the liberality
of the church. The tirst building,
erected was the dormitory which was;
used for school work till better ac- j
commodations could be provided.
Under the leadership of Misses Ste-,
venson, Xeel and Love, and other
workers the school soon attracted the
attention of the ambitious boys and
girls of the community, and commended
itself to ail who observed the
splendid service it was rendering.
Since Rev. R. X. Hunter was placed
in charge the work has been greatly
enlarged. The family of Mr. J. N.
Margin of Newberry, S. C., desiring
to commemorate his me,"r,rv in some'
appropriate way, gave $3,000 for the
erection of a hall which would serve
as an assembly hall and provide suf-'
ficient class rooms. This fund was
supplemented by a like sum raised by
the First, Second and Catawba Presbyteries.
Thp hnll was erected in 1921, and
is attractive in design. The upper
floor forms a well arranged and commodious
auditorium, which will serve .
for religious gatherings. The iower
floor accommodates six class rooms,
and will be sufficient for present
The dedicatory exercises were held
on August 3rd, 192?. A large and .
interested congregation was present.
It was a great pleasure to ha%*e present
Mrs. J. N. Martin, Mr. F. N. .
Martin, Mrs. T. W. Sloan, Mrs. H. H. (
Sweets, Mrs. S. W. Reid, Mrs. G. L. '
Kerr, Mr. J. X. Martin, Jr., and Miss 1
Lalla Martin?the wife and living
sons and daughters of Mr. Martin. 1
The service was most impressive.
Rev. R. X. Hunter presided, Rev. J.
W. Carson offered the invocation. ]
The Scripture was read by Dr. H. H. ,
Sweets. Dr. T. W. Sloan preached 3
a very impressive sermon on Matt.,
11:29, "For I am meek and lowly in j
heart." The sermon was a simple .
and forceful presentation of the ;
meekness and lowliness of Jesus. .In .
closing the statement was made that <
these were marked characteristics of <
the man in whose memory this hall
has been erected. i
Following the sermon Mr. F. X. ]
Martin of Newberry read a very in- i
teresting sketch of Ms. J. N. Mar
tin. Mr. J. X. Martin, Jr., of Char- ?
lotto, gave a breaf statement of the <
circumstances that led to the dona- ?
tion, and Dr. S. W. Reid .spoke in appreciation
of Miss Berniie Mar- ;
tin, one of tni3 donors who pass out ;
of this life since the hall was erect- 1
ed. ]
The building was formally presented
in the name of the Martin ,
family, and the Presbyteries that ^
'n.ulo rontribution to its erection, ,
by Rev. G. L. Kerr. A suitable re- i
sponse was made by Rev. W. B.
Lindsay in behalf of the committee.
After remarks by Dr. G. B. White ,
and Dr. J. W. Carson the player of
dedication was made by Rc . W. B.
The music was under the direc
tion of .Airs. U. r*. jviuu ana cum, routed
much to the pleasure of the occasion.
Dinner was served on the grounds
and an hoor of very pleasant intercourse
was enj\.. .. The people of
the community were present in large
members and in every way showed
their interest in the work that is being
done by the school.
The new parsonaee that is bein?
erected through the efforts of Dr. G.
B. White is nearing completion, and
will furnish a comfortable home- for
the superintendent.
Rev. R. X. Hunter is doing: a spu-ndid
work. He :r. ably assisted this
summer by Mr. Gettys of the seminary.
Thus closed a most interesting and
enheartening day for the Hillcrest
mission. The people turned their
faces homeward and many of the visitors
journeyed up the mountain for
the conference at Bonclarken. The
history of Hiiicrest is a prophecy of
greater thing's in the future.
The church appreciates the generous
gift of the Martin family, but.
the family has been more than compensated
by what has already be--n
accomplished. X. X.

.Mr. J. L. Gamble of ihe Columbia

tht* city making: arrangements to
distribute Chtro Cola and otht*r hottied
beverages in this territory. .Mr.
Gamble is very enthusiastic over the
prospects here, and is making arrangements

Newberry with the intention of mak
jng tms ms Home. ;
For the present the Columbia plant
wil! furnish him with Chero Coia ami
soda water, but Inter on they expect
to pui in a plant here. The Columbia
Chero Cola plant is one of the ,
most up to date bottling plunts in the (
South, using exclusively low pressure ]
automatic machinery which guaran- ]
tees a uniform drink with absolute .
cleanliness. j
Chero Cola is fast becoming the
most popular soft drink on the mar- j
ket and it goes without saying that as ;
soon as the consumers and dealers in ,
this territory get acquainted with (
Chero Cola it will be as popular here *
as it is in other places.
No Such Thing as Unsalable Cotton !
and All That We Have Can Be
Used if Cctton in Scarce
D. J. McMillan in Orangeburg Dem- *
Arthur Mazvck of Ber.nottsville
has been elected sales manager of 1
the South Carolina Cotton Growers *
Cooperative association. That is a ^
rather prosaic statement ami was 1
carried in the news dispatches of the *
state some few weeks aero. They went ^
on to state his former connections, ^
his experience as a classer of both
long and short staple. his successful
direction of the Pee Dee River Cotton
company of Bennettsville, whose
wonderful success is so well known
in that part of the state.
But to the average one horse cotton
grower, and many others wlio are *
mtpvpstod in cooperative marketing c
of cotton the statement? contained in 1
these dispatches meant little. The t
directors of course made a searching n
investigation of his record and oual- 1
ifications; they consulted with Lome v
of the largest cotton consumers in c
the world, exporters, bank? and cot- r
ton men. They realized the great 1
impoitance of the position, especial- P
ly during the first year when the success
of the association means so h
much. 11
Frankly I have never heard of Mr. o
Mazyck. That in itself did not mean t
anything, except that I am rure there t
are several thousand members of the
association who, up to the time of his f
selection as sales manager knew ab- e
solutely nothing about him. e
Realizing that the success or fail-- h
lire of the association depends very e
largely on its ability to sell its prod- e
act. profitably, handle it economically, s
and at the same time dispose of it r
as quickly as may be consistent with li
?-ood judgment, and Knowing that the \
sales manager would be the man on v
whom the responsibility would rest t
for accomplishing these things, I con- f
fess to a feeling of extreme curiosity v
to see just what sort of a man hud
been selected to fill that position. I
I am in no position to say how
wide Mr. Mazyck's knowledge ex-'
tends on religion, politics, or any 1
other current topics of the day. But
[ am thoroughly solid on the idea that .
he DOES know cotton. After talking
cotton with him for ten minutes ^
one is impressed and it is hammered
home to him that you are talking }
with a man who not only knows his r
subject but who is dealing with facts. ?
Theories have no place in his lrne of *
reasoning, except as they lead to cer- c
tain conclusions.
He is a hard man to interview. He
knows his subject so well, is so con- '
> * t i (
vorsant with the technical points un....
... i
tier discussion tnat it seemed at rimes
he became impatient with me because
I could not grasp all that he
said as quickly as he thought I ^
should. For instance:
''There is no such thin# is unusable
cotton." Now I knew that. So do
thousands of cotton growers. But ^
when year after year the buyers have (
told us that certain portions of our.
cotton was c.f such low grade that it #
was practically useless; that they.]
wee doing us a favor to buv it at ^
any price, but they would help us out
to the extent of taking the cotton .
off our hands at two, three or four, t
-n 1 nov nmuifl wn cuvt nf lnsr cio-ht i
of the truth of Mr. Mazyck's state-'(
ment. i asked him to explain. jv
"All rijrht, listen, when cotton is (
plentiful the consumers of low jrrade x
colcon will juy a little better jcrade ]
at a low price, but if cotton is scarce. -j
they will u^e the lowest grades and j
pay a fair price for it too/' j j
'"Does that me:;n. then, that the :
only way we can dispose of our low 1
grade cotton at a fair price is for c
this country to have a short crop?" j?
"Not at all," with an air of a very; 1
patient schoolmaster explaining a
simple problem ro a school hoy. it
s!:np!y means that ii' \v._* vi.l market
our cotton methodically, and not
dump it on an already -.rutted market
th.it our higher <rradeV w:-l be
used by the mills who are in the
market for those grades, and the lmvt
r grades will naturally be consumed
by the mills who can use those particular
grades." Perfectly simple, isn't
"Take stained cotton for instance."
he continued. "A jr rower
carries a bale of stained cotton to the
market and a deduction is made on
rU'COUiU Ol ui'iiiu >ti!iisru. ivi uii'i c
are plenty of mills who will buy that
cotton at a fair price. It's my business
to know where that cotton can
be sold so that the grower will receive
i fair price for it. and not be cornjelled
to sell it at a sacrifice."
All cotton will be classed accuratey
as to grade and staple. This is
something which has never been done
sefore in so far as it affects the
grower. If he should take two bales
>f cotton to market, both of them
niddling. one bale should staple one
nch and the other one and one-six-'
;eenth he would receive the same
jrice for both bales. This is manifestly
unfair. Under the cooperative
nnrketing system all cotton is graded
both as to grade and staple. It is
hen classed by tag number. The
rrower will be paid a premium on
he better grade and longer staple."
Every bale of cotton received by
his association will be handled just
hat way. The staple on every bale;
vill be pulled. There is absolutely!
10 chance for discrimination or un-i
airness to any grower. The man
vho sells the cotton hasn't the slight-!
>st idea whose cotton he is selling.
Ie doesn't know whether it's a landord's
or tenant's. A white man's or
i negro's. He is simply selling cot- j
on according to its grade and staple
it the very best price and on the best,
erms obtainable.
"No man today questions the fact'
hat we will be able to handle our;
otton with a smaller overhead than
mder the present system. The fact.
hat it only c~st the growers of Tex-1

He was 4 > years of age at the time I

aeation in the common schools of Ai-j
ten county and later graduated from!
;he Blaekviile high sc-hoo! under 'heJ
nstruction of Prof. H. S. Cunning- i
mm. The year following I:is gr:;du-j

ated in the University of South Car-]
>lina. From thi^ institution he won !
i bachelor of arts degree. After this j
le entered Peabody Institute at Xash- j
ville. Tenn., and later won a Master
of Arts decree.
With the completion of his education
he accepted a position as superintendent
of the ik-auiort high
school at Beau fort. IK* served in this
capacity for three years, resigning to
take up another offer made by the
Rock Hill schools. He took up the
position of superintendent of city
schools ami made an enviable reco-'d.
It was through his efforts that a large
modern brick high school building
was erected there.
He then accepted the position as
supervisor of the rural schools of
South Carolina. This is : onsidered
as one of the most important a.: well
as the mo3t difficult positions to fill
in the educational v.*o.*:d o: South
Carolina. For a mi :nber of yeav^ he
performed the. duties of tlfs office
and at the same time taught pedago<rv
in the Universitv of South Caro

years ago when ho was offered a position
at Furman.

During the summer, of 1921 he
served as dean of Furman Summer
school, but at the close of the summer
course he was taken ill and was
confined to his bed lor number of
months. He was nerhap; the most i
beloved member of the entire tar- '
man faculty.
At the a.ue of fifteen years ho was i
ibaptized and has beeh a devout
N r
Christian since that time. While in
Columbia he was superintendent of
the Sunday school of the First Bap- j
tist church of that city. He taught j
