Feared in England That Person
al liberty Will Defeat Total
LONDON, April 2.-The attention of
the British public still was centered
today on the possibility of the nation
adopting a policy of abstinence from
I-? use of intoxicants. It ls doubtful
If the biggest headlines Chronicling
military activity, could divert atten
tion from the question of prohibition.
Np doubt exists that s'jme drastic
measures are contemplated,, but the
opinion is divergent as to whether
prohibition will be in the total sense
.j personal liberty is so strong in
England that lt may defeat complete
abstinence. It is believed that the
cabinet is rn favor of total prohibi
tion which, under the defense of the
realm act, it has power enough to
force without further legislation.
Several Ixmdon papers appeared to
day with full page advertising, pre
senting petitions with the requests
that the supporters 'nf the prohibition
movement cut tbenf out and send
them to Chancellor Lloyd George. The
petitions read: "I sm entirely In fa
vor of the suspension ot the manufac
ture and sale of intoxicating liquors
during the war. which I consider Un'
negative for the "quick and succeasful
termination of the war. t shall
heartily support the government in
i any euch measure." Thc petition Idea
is supported by the merchants ? and
business men and other employees of
lubor. The opinion ls growing that,
?".: the employees aie deprived of the
right to drink the employers also
must conform to that provision.

Two Member? of State Board
Make Inspection' College With
View Accredited List Mat
Stat? Superintendent of- Education
J. K.; Swearlngen and Prof.. D. W.
Daniel ot Clemson College, member
from this congressional district of
the State Hoard of Education, were
In Anderson? yesterday for the pur
pose of making an inspection of An
derson College, with a view of report
ing ut the next meeting of tho State
Hoard of Education upon the proposi
tion of placing this institution* on the
"accredited list." Were the college
to be placed upon th? .'accredited
1 lat** of the State Hoard of Education
It would mean* that graduates of this
institution would he awarded certifi
patea to teach In thin State without
having first to stand the teachers' ex
amination. The next meeting of the
State Hoard of Education will bc hold
April 6, and while Mr. Hwoarlagen
waa not in a position to state what
the board would do 'with reference to
th? matter of putting the intnltutlon
cn the "accredited "list," one would
infar from his remarks about what
he observed at the college that there
will bo no trouble about the college
being -givi-n that recognition.
Mr. Swearlngen said that he came
to Anderson expecting to lind a splen
did institution, and that he had every
expectation fully realized. He spoke
in most complimentary terms v>f the
college, laying particular stress on
the physical feu tu res of the institu
tion. With reference to the academic
features of tho institution her said
thut on the teaching staff 'there waa
a reasonable number of experts for
the size of the college. Taken on the
whole, he raid, the plant ls one of the
'best in the State, and lt? expressed a
desire to see it have an endowment of
$250,000 or $300,000. He said that the
college was plenty large to accomo
date 250 or 300 young ladles.
Mr. Swearlngen took accesi?n tb
say that tho schools of the county un
der Mr. Kelton's supervision are mak
ing great progress. Ho stated that
the 32 schools in the county having
two and three teachers are doing as
good work as they can do. He thinks
all of the schools having one teacher
should be abolished. He hopes this
will come about in Anderson County
before any great length of time.
Mr. Swearlngen says it would bo
wise for the people of the county to
instruct the county legislative delega
tion to-work to have the laws govern
ing high schools changed so that tney
woutd not operate against country
children. He says high schools are
needed where the children are living,
and it is. strange to say that the law
provides that when a town has
more than 2,500 In populat'on the
high scboul. in that town cannot get
State aid..He sr.ys the high school law
needs changing in two places, and
that, tho change:* -would certainty
work for the' good of the entire
school system.

Boy Work to be Carried
on.-Home is Closed
Conditions throughout the business
world generally having forced upon
practically all limitations operating
upon a financial basis a policy of re
trenchment, the Anderson Young
Mon's Christluu Association aireo?
torc, after mature deliberation ault
with future welfare of the work lu
view, have decided upon a temporary
plan of curtailment, and. following S
meeting last night, in which they hau
lite counsel ot Mr. E. G. Wilson, IU
ter.-ta te Y. M. C. A. secretary for
tho Carolinas, announced certain
changes in the mode of conducting
thc work here, which will be in ef
fect for the next few months, or until
linuucial corni lt ion i are improved.
Foremost In importance and Inter
est to thc general public of the an
nr.uncemouts made by the directora
was the resignation of General Secre
tary F. M. Burnett, who has servoo*
the association splendidly in all re
ipects since he became affiliated
with the association more than a year
ago Mr Burnett's resignation, how
aver, waa placed before thc directors
in order thut he might lie free to ac
cept another position In a larger fltold',
ta mi-; h of a different nature from Y.
M. C. A. work, where the oppor
tunities are greater and the demand
for ability larger. The nature of tho *
new work Mr. Burnett ia to tako up
cannot be announced Just at this time.
To iay that Ute directora of the Y,
M. C. A. accepted Mr. Burnett's re
signation with keenest of regret, -ia
superfluence. The mon, his work and
hlo record are t?o well known to t
every citlsen of Anderson for remarks 1
of thiB nature to be indulged,lp Itt
thia connection.
Report of Werk.
At tile meeting of the directors
Friday night General Secretary Bur
nett submitted a report of the as? ?
elation work, which Included a state
ment as to finances. After a full ai-1
frank discussion of the report it was
unanimously decided that the work
of the association would not be aban
doned, but that a policy of retrench
ment to reduce expenses to a mini
mum would have to bs followed for
the next few months, or until con
ditions in the business world have
undergpn?. a change for the better.
Close Up Building.
To this end it was deoided that the
association home, on West Barle
street, would be closed immediately
and that a successor to Mr. Burnett
would not bo chosen tor the present.
Mr. Wilson, Interstate secretary,
suggested that until financial condi
tions would warrant a cacvasc for
funds for the association's own
building, the work ot the association
in Anderson be limited to a work
primarily for boys, an dthe present
work be merged into what is gen
erally known as "Community Boys
Work." Mr. Wiljon recommended
that this arrangement he perfected as
early as' practicable. The suggestion
met with the unanimous approval ol
the board of directors, and such a
policy will be pursued until funds can
be raised for an association building
In Anderson commensurate with the
size and the importance Ot the town
and for again employing a general
Conmnnlty Boys* Work.
The plan of the Bommunlly Boys*
Work," ai outlined by Mr. Wilson, is -
to have a trained secretar* exper
ic need in work with boys. The aim
of thc work is to cooperate with, the
existing agencies that meet tin, needs
of boy lire in a commnnity. tuunely.
tl.? home, tho church, the sehet! and .
the municipality.
The work IB done wh7i?u> equip
ment by using the equipment of th-,
cooperating agencies. The communty
secretary devotes his time tb promet ..
lng ft program ot act i vi tie? designed
to develop-boy life as welt aa tr. study
of tho causes of misery and wrofig
as 'hey affect boy life, and to bring
tnto existence such forces as will
hasten tta'dr elimination.
This type ot work. Mr. Wilson stat
ed, has been oondoctert for U*e n??t
tw*> years in Rock HUI and with
phenomenal success, and the v-^opi?
of that good town are enthutlaattc
over thb type of work.
As an evidence of Rock Hills ap
preciation ot this work, Mr. Wilson
pointed ont, in a ?recen*; three-day
campaign the sum' ot $0,000 was con
tributed for the support ot ?ho work
sund?n g the financial
