LET U TRY ANDDO 80MMRN
TO GET OUT or THE HOLE
In another colm n we have printed
a letter from on4 who we know has
the ipterests of Clarendon County at
heart. This letter contains a plan for
getting the real facts relating to
proper farming under boll weevil in
vasion to opir people . in the briefest
way and that by men in whom all the
community will have the utmost con
fidence. We know that Clarendon
County.. is too good a place to desert
but if there ever was a time in her
history when .soething. nrdesd tofe
done it is now. It is doubtiul if there
is any place in the southland where
the boll weevil has more direfully af
flicted a community than right here.
The time to do something Is now.
The quetion is what shall we do'? It
appears to us as a thoroughly logical
plan to send a representative number
of men to go out and search out the
land and bring us word again. If we
could get such men as Irvin Plowden
T. H. Gentry, H. K. Beatson, Fleet
DuBose, Elliott Rowe or any more of
a hundred others to make a trip to
othet farming sections of other states
and then have them conic back and
tell our farmers in person and through
the newspaper what they saw and
heard and how farmers who have
been up against what we are
against have found a way to ma
money, we are confident that next
years work mould be undertaken with
a better heart by all.
We heartily endorse the plan of
sending a delegation as soon as it can
be arranged. Of course it will take
some money. If these men are to go
as our representatives we will want to
pay their expenses. The Manning
Times is going to offer to collect such
a fund if the people of Clarendon
County are in favor of sending a dele
gation out. We suggest that every
one who spnds in a dollar nominate
one nMan t5 go. One vote for every
If you are in favor of this send
in your vote and your dollar. If a
fund of sufficient size is not sent in
we will return every dollar entrusted
to us. What do you say? Write us
a letter and tell us how the idea ap
peals to you.
