At the last .meeting, of tho General1
Assembly, at our suggestion, two
amendments to our Statu Constitution
were proposed for the betterment of !
this school to be voled upon by you
Jt thc coming general election. If
thc.e two proposed amendments aro
appro ved by thu people of thia state 1
voting "Yes" upon both of thom the
Schcol for thc Duci and tho mind
will no longer bc classified with the j
Penal and Charitable but with tho
Educational Department of tho stale.
In order to effect this change of claa- j
slflcatlou lt is necessary to amend
our constitution in two places. First
it is necessary to so amend as tv> take
tho school from tho Penal and Char
il ab lu Section. A second amendment {
lo necessary to.place thc school- under
he Educational Section.
At tba coining^ general election in
VT.-.. ,-.1.-.- ...... ...Itt I.- ..I-1-A

/oui." I.a?Ql eithor for or against these
two proposed amendments. Knowii
that tho people of this state will uni
formly vote "Yes" on these two
amendments ptovlded thoy are in
formed as to their importance to this
scnooi, I deem it my duly, as tue rep
resentativo of this school, to address
thia letter to you.
A century ago the deaf and the
blind children of these United States i
were .allowed to remain a burden to
their parents and their friends. About
a half century ago, great ' advance- !
ment had boen moue when a large1
majority of the states had estab
lished schools under the name of1
"Asylunis" for the deaf and the blind
children. So ignorant wove the masses
of the people in regard to the ability !
and needs of these children that they
could not disassociate the charitable
Idea from a deaf and a blind child.
I Hit thero bas como a general awak
ening in all our states. They are rec
ognizing the fact inii? ?voi y iltJ? ara
every b'.lnd child within tho bounds
ot these United States has a right to '
hope for an education and a right to j
hope that it will not be handed out
to him with the label of charity upon
lt while his more fortunate brothers
and sisters get tho sumo thing and
there ls not the suspicion of charity j
with iL The. work done at our school
ls educational In the highest sense
for lt includes Instruction along lit
erary, musical, industrial, VhyslcaU]
and moral Unes.
Our graduates are successful men
and women winning their way in the
world and gaining' the respect of the
people around them; they are never
objects of charity and the school that
makes them should not be classed
with the penal and ^charitable work |
of our state. For years, for all prac
tical purposes, our classification has I
been educational but legally we have j
carried the clamp pf charity upon us.
To take, away th? hist vestige of tl??
charity idea from our school I re
snectfullv ask that your voto "Yes,r
upon both of these proposed amend
ments. ' Then I say to the boys
and girls under my care and to the
large end respected alumni of oar
school that South Carolina will no
longer stamp charity upon the educa
tion ehe is giving, and will continue
to give so freely to her deaf and her
blind children. Feeling sure that tho
pc-op' . >i tills ?tate wUl .gladly avail
themselves ,ot the opportunity to vpto
"Yes" upon both these amendments,

Tho following debate was written*'
by Frances Bhirley*
? Resolved, That the study Of Eng
lish composition is more important
than the study of bookkeeping. ? *
For several reasons I say that the <
r.?uiiy cf 1*^""l'?>* oe"1 Tvr*T'*'rm laman
important than the study of book
First. In the study of English
composition. correct writing, correct
speaking and correct Apolline are
promoted-three things .which aro
very important for everybody to
knu .r. person learns from thia study
how to express himself lp a free and
easy manner and ap clearly that
everybody can understand what lie
means. .
Secondly, a person ls Judged by the
kind of English he used in. writing
and in speaking. Many people.,hw*
been daprivod ot good positions by
sending in applications written in
correctly. . Do you think a person ap
plying for a position as a bookkeep
er would be given the position il he
did not know bow to write-bia appli
cation -^/irrnrit lu ? Tn ' piomt.. rajima ha
certainly would not.
Thirdly, it is important for every
body to know how to write correctly,
but lt is not necessary.for everybody
to know bookkeeping. No matter
what position you held yon will be .
expected io write correctly.
Therefore, since tho study ot Eng
lish composition promotes correct
writing, correct spuakinj; and correct
spelling; since, a prscn is judged hy
the English he dses In writing" and
in speaking; and since ny matter
what posiUon you boW. yea will be'
oxpocted to write correctly, the de
cision should gp .to the .ainymatlvo.
