Sam J. Leaphart, manager of the
Lexington Cotton aad Fertilize!* Company
and former editor of The Dis- j
" patch-News, is apparently slated for j
the job of United States Marshal for
the eastern district of South Carolina,
under the new administration. This j
is generally regarded as one of the
best federal jobs and Mr. Leaphart'sj

of political affiliations, would be gl^d
to see him secure a position for which 1
he is well qualified.
Mr. Leajyhart is a graduate of the!
University and since returning from
college he has been identified \vith the '
best interests of Lexington. He
seryed three terms as postmaster of
H^s v :K^HB
- ^^K^C-^llBMi^B
Lexington very acceptably to the
patrons of the p^e. Upon his retire1n'>nt
frornTthre^ pifice, he founded'
The News (afterwards consolidated
with The Dispatch). When the. paper
; was sold to the present owners, Mr.
Leaphart became identified with the
Lexington Cotton and Fertilizer Company,
of which he is now manager. He
is also a director of the Home
National Bank and a member of the
Church Council of St. Stephen's Lutheran
church. 1 /
The Columbia Record in a recent
issue has the following to say in regard
to the matter:
"S. J. Leaphart, of Lexington, graduated
the university and well known
in Columbia, is being urged by many
citizens of Richland and Lexington
counties for appointment as United
States marshal for the Eastern district
of South Carolina under the Re7
publican administration, and it is
thought' likely that Mr. Leaphart will
receive the appointment.
"Mr. Leaphart has been in Wash1Tie-ton
rerentlv and has conferred
with President Harding, Chairman
Hays and others, and he has the endorsement
also of J. W. Tolbert, who,
it is said, will be in charge of the
patronage for this state. It is understood
there are no other candidates
for the office and that Mr. Leaphart
will probably be appointed."
The Bon Heur Club will meet Friday
afternoon at 4 o'clock with Mrs.
E. G. Dreher and Miss Ethel Dreher.

Columbia, March 14.?The South
Carolina headquarters of the Near
East Relief yesterday made public
a Lenten sacrifice appeal made by
Major General Leonard Wood for
funds to save the Armenians from annihilation
by starvation and disease.
"I feel that however many and however
worthy the other'appeals which
are being made to the great heart of
America these days may be," said the
General "this cry from the little children
cannot remain unanswered."
It is annpunced that a "Lenten Sacrifice
Appeal Committee has been
formed with Major General Wood as
chairman .and Cleveland H. Dodge as
Treasurer to put before the American
people the desperate need of the
Christian populations of the Near
East who have suffered and are still
[ suffering the horrors of war. Among
I the other members of the committee'
are Former President W. H. Taft,
Bishop-elect Wm. T. Manning, of New
York, Samuel Gompers, Mrs. Carrie
Chapman Catt, Dr. Henry Van Dyke
and Secretary of Treasury Mellon.

appeal: "As chairman of the
special committee of representative,
men and womeh of the country
charged with placing before the American
people the desperate need of
two and a half million Armenians,
I the remnant of the oldest Christian
nation, whose sufferings through six-,
teen centuries seem to have brought
them no nearer peace, liberty or security,
I beg your personal co-operaI
tion nnri inflnonoA to forward a Len
ten Sacrifice offering to enable the
Near East Relief to go on wjth its
work of mercy.
"Over one hundred thousand little
children who have been kept alive
by American generosity for the past
three years are absolutely dependent
upon the support which Ajnerica
gives them through the Near East
"I feel that however many and
however worthy the other appeals
which are being made to the great
heart of America thgse days may be,
this cry from the little children of
the land where Christ give his life
for mankind cannot remain unanswered."
Check should be made payable to
the Near East Relief and sent to

South Carolina Sent Over Hundred
Million to West Last
Year?Could be
Kept Here.
P j
Columbia, March 14.?South Carolinians
imported $111,000,000 worth
of food and feedstuffs from the West *
last year, according to figures compiled
by the committee on banking, <
legislation and warehousing of the
South Carolina Division of the Amr
erican Cotton Association. The importation
of this enormous amount of
foodstuffs into the state was made
necessary by the eagerness of the
farmers to raise cotton, many of them
pianxing .seventeen acres xo xne piow.
In a statement issued yesterday the
association declared that there was
no reason for the farmers of the State \
to be panic-stricken over the fact
that the price which cotton is nowbringing
forbids them planting over
a half crop of it next year. It is declared
that a study of the figures collected
by the committee on banking,
legislation and warehouses of the association
ought to convince them that
diversification of csops in South will
prove profitable.
, According to the committee statement
that importation of food and
feedstuffs into South Carolina from
the West last year as follows: Corn
$15,000,000; Mixed feeds $13,000,000;
Hay $1-2,000,000; Oats, $10,000,000; ' f
Flour, $20,000,000;Beef, $15,000,000
Bacon, $20,000,000?;, Eggs and butter,
$3,000,000; Canned goods, $13,000,000
making a grand total of $111,000,000.
"These figures," says the association
"are purchases, from this state
only and every item must be paid
fnr in r*ish before the foods are de
livered together with the freight. This
amount could b% spent at home if the
farmers of South Carolina would get
their mirids off of -cotton for a /few
