The Soplioniore Cluss l4eivet
tile College W'itl1 Synuipatily oI
Other Cadets.
The entire sophomore class of Clen
son College has left tile institution
and their course has been approvel
by the senior and junior classes. Th
cause of this action on the part of the
StUdOnts Was the SUSpenIsiOn of Cadet
E. A. Thoinwell, of Fort Mill, S. C.,
and when his class asked the taculty to
reinstate him on the ground that a
trivial offence only had been comi
mited, the faculty refused to revise its
action, which resulted in the class
agreeing to leave at once. Only a few
remained after this course was resolved
upon, and they followed within a (lay
or two, making a total of 74 cadets who
joinled in this movement.
Tihe faculty hel I a meeting after the
students had left the canipus, anid at
its close the following statement was
given out by Col. Rt. W. Simpson,
chairman of the board of trustees,
which was endorsed by President Hart
zog, namely:
" The faculty last week awarded
)uniisllment to a student of the sopho
more class by suspending hi until
the ( end of the session. The sopho
More class petitioned tile faculty to re
instate the student. Tile faculty met
again and heard a committee of the
class, but saw n1o reason to grant their
request. Thereupon a number of the
chiss left and went to their several
homes. While the faculty regret thisi
action on the part of the studlents they
feel compelled to maintain discipl hnle."
The offence of which (5adet. Thrn
well was guilty was toking 1011m gLass
test tubes from the chemical labora
tory without per-llsion. ile m11e111
bers of the faculty say they have been
troubled a great deal by coniuct of this
kind and deterinined some tine ago to
break uip the practice. Notice wias
given that tile next offender caught
would be severely dealt with. Cadet
Thornwell was caught, and his suspen
sion followed. These tubes which are
small glass cylinders with little or no
value rmay not have been taken witih
any wrong iltelt, tihe faculty, say, but
the taking of them was a violation of
the rules. As a matter of fact the
faculty say the college has been ani
noyed at great deal by tile disappearance
of a iumiber of small articles such as
tools, wrenches, etc., and it was coi
sidered absolutely necessiary to put an
emphatic end to ti. business.
The students admit there is a rule
that no test t uhes or other college ap
paraltus shall he hiken for use by any
of tihe studeiits witlout the colsent, of
tile professors, but they say it hais not
been observed generally. Cadet Thorn
well did take four of the tubes from
the general store to his (esk or stand,
as it is called, in tile buldiblg, but he
took them for use in class work and
they consider his suspension ani out
rage, as 110 wrong was imtended. The
students say they thought the facts
had been misrepresented or exagger
ated to the faculty and petitioned for a
relhearing of the case ill order that all
the circuistaines mighlt be brotight
ou. When the faculty refused their re
quest they felt that loyalty to their
classmate deiaided that they should
leave the college in a body and this
wvas done1( at once.
Th'le main point urged by the students
is that the punishmemnt intilictedl oni
young Th'lornwell is ini excess of that
warranted hby the case. F~or inlstance
tihey say there is a college rule thlat a
stuldenlt found witih me1ss5 hall1 propert~y
in hlis room shlall b~e given ten demerits,
yet hlere was a stud~entL who simply
violated a rule andl unwittingly took
certain college prioperty for use in his
class wvork, without removing it from
the building, for wichl lie waIs su5
peun :Ied.
The corresponldent of The State
talked with a great, many college stu
(dents on tihe campllus. T1hie sthludents
were I. ry mulchl wioughit up and~ over
whiehingly im sympathy with the
sophlomores. Theli sen1ior class mlet and1(
adopted a resolutionl of sympjathiy for
tile sophomores, ndrigtheir actionl.
A copy of the resolutions will be senlt
to tile family of each of tile st~udlents
Wihe left.
When tile sop~hlomores dcided~ to
leave many of thlem (lid noet have
mnoney enuiigh to get away on,. Money
was furnished them by the members
of' the other classes anid tile coliege so
cieties exhlaustedl their treasuries. '[he

P'resident, Ilartzoz and t~he other
members of the faculty salid thley re
grettd ilhe matter very miuchi, but
thley felt that, thbey 11ad( simply (is
chlarged thleir duty as required iby the
circumilstancdes. " it was simply a
question,'' said C'ol. Simpson, " as to
who shlol run this college, the fiac
ulty or the( students. The faculty felt
that thley were the Ones to run it, and
have proceeded accordingly.
*' There will be n10 mieetimig of tie
board of truiste'3s," sid Col. Simpson,
" because there is noe need for it. The
ineidlent, while very much dieplored,
has caurredl and has d(ed, and the(
college wil l)proeed as5 thouigh nlothing

hasty- action of tihe students, and1( wI
believe 110 one will regret, it more thai
the stuldents themuselvesi wheni they re
alizAe what a mistake they have made,'
Tlhie following is the text of tha
complaint by the so)phomfore class:
To thle lFacumlty and Presient, of Clenm
SOnl College:
Thel( sophomlole class hlas asked for;
rannalaration of Cadelt Thornwwel
i case, and we herewith present our rea- I
Our action is based upon the belief
,hat we consider Cadet Thornwell's
punishient greater than his offense f
deserves. For example, it is obvious )
that the faculty does not consider ('Cadet I
Thornwell's offence the same as that t
of stealing, else they would have ex
polled him. If not stealing, we con- I
sider that his punisiment shoul not
be made so much severer than that in
llicted for similar offenses.
Cadet Thornwell only took the test
tubes for use in the laboratory with
out the professor's permission. We A
calr cite no case of exact parallel. We
do know, however, that two years ago t(
when bottles and chemicals weretaken s
from the laboratory, not even were re- o
ports entered against the boys in e
whoso rooms they were found. In si
cases where property taken from the e
mess hall is found in the students pos- h
sessiOn, the penalty is niot, 8111)siOll, g
but only demerits. ti
in both of these instances we coin- all
sider the offense evidently worse than -
that of Cadet Thornwell, Inasmuch as W
the articles taken were for private use, d
and not for class work. tl
Cadet Thornwell is not guilty of an fo
unusual or peculiar crime,. He simply ti
did what has been the practice of the gi
entire class (luring its course inl cheml- ill
istry. tl
We, therefore, believe that the fae- at
ulty is laboring under a iusunder- tl
standing, or has been led to regard Cl
with great seriousness atinl off(ise li
which has not been so regarded in the fir
past. fat
We appreciateC the position of the m
facully, when it, takes the stald that tit
the co1vlege slhmol I hoe protected. But m

It is because, the refore, of a deep all

Itichmlonid, .June I1, IM2.
Brother Soldiers of the Legion:
In taking leave of you as your colo
nel I cailnot bring myself to do so
through the cold formalities of' aln or
der. I prefer to adopt tie mcde of
communication usual between friends
that I may be enabled to give greatter
latitu ;e to the feeling naural to the
occasiona. One year ago you (lid ie
the honor to enroll yourselves under
mily banner, and )oil added the still
greateri honor of inscribing on that
hanier a iamnie Which you have mlasde
honorably kiown throughout our (!on
fedclacy. IDiring that eventful year,
which has just passed, I have received
from you only evidences of your kind
nes8, your esteem and your conlidience.
The constant, manifestations of theste
feelligs onl your part have niot only
gratiiled me greatly, but have susiained
tme il the arduous duties of' my posi
tioi and made the connection which
existed between us, to ane at least,Oily
a sottne of uanmixed pride and gratili
cation. Such a connectiou is not easily
surrendered, and I have a never been
willing to leave the Legion, aid it is a
condition attached to my promotionI
that I am not to be separatled fron mly
old aind (dear command. As long, the,
as you are willing to follow tile so long
shall I lope to have the honor atnd
pleasire of leading you. This day is
the anniversary of outr corps, auid in
the yeur that hias passed you have
crowded many deeds of enduranco and
glory. You may justly be proud of the
well-earned reputation you have made
for yourselves and you can inidulge ani
honest pride in feeling that with ranks
thiied by disease and the battle there
is not, in the service a command whose t
name is more honored by ou1r frieids J
or feared by our enemies thaw that, of
the liampton I egion. U]nder our pro
posed liew organization I hope youi
will honor ile by still bearing the samie
namc and the samne fiag. Both are safe
inl your keeping, and both will, I know,
be still further illustrated by your Ihle
roic bearing during the progress of the
war. I n assuiming my new duties with
my new rank I slall conlidently hook
to you to set tin example of all hotior
hale conduet to your associates. Note
know better how to do this than youi
do, atnd I know that I shall not alippeal
to you inl vin aa to assist ile in makitg I
<11ur brigade its ('lieient as the Ixgioa
lrother solders, I bid you as yur111,
coloiel, a mnost uaffclionate farewell.
I thank you for your. patielnt enithianatace
of trials, for youl r, sold ierly conduct, for
