OFETilIEO7iTPAP.ER OF PICKENS .OF THE FOdTH~tL3' * COUNTY A NEWSPAPER WITH A CONSCIENCE VOLUME 51-NUMBER- 26 PICKENS, S. C., OCTOBERl, 20, 191 WESLEYAN METHODIST COL Only Wesleyan School In South lb At CentaI. A Greenville N'ews .staff corres pondent, who recently visited Pick eris county, wrote the following ar ticle about the' Wesleyan Mi-thodist College: at Central-* for' his paper:. The &ly institution in the south maintained by -the membdrs 'of that denomination is the Wesleyan Meth dist College, located but a short dis tance from Central, and which has an enrollment of -115 students. The local college, which is one of the four in the nation maintained by the Wesleyan Methodist church draws its students all the way from Virginia t Alabama. A large 'number are from South Carolina, although North Carolina, Virginia and other states are close seconds. The institution is coeducttional. Prof. L. B. Smith, a graduate of Wofford and a native of Spartanburg, is at the head of the Wesleyan Metho dist College. He has. been connected with the school for nine years, having been president for the last seven, years.' -The faculty consists of ten insetrugto&s The college owns 80 acres of land, virtually all of which are utilized in the campus or as sites'for the college bulidings. The administration build. ing is located on a gently sloping hill and is the center of the college colony being flanked by the dormitories and homes of the professors. Since its establishment in 1906 the college has enjoyed a steady growth having received the undivided support of members of the ilenomination throughout the nation. Much aid is received from the Wesleyan Methodist Educational Society of Syracuse, N.' Y., which owns and operates the local college. Three years after its estab lishent the school was chartered un der the laws of South Carolina. The majority of students are here' for religious. reasons, Prof. Smith! stated. Every student, it is said, is either a member of the denomination or else is favorable to the creed. Recently a revival was held at the college, conducted by the Rev. H. H. Williams. At the close of the revival every student of the institution made' a profession of their faith in Christ. Many of those here are ministerial, ftudents and are pursuing courses in the theological department. Others are preparing for work in the foreign mission fields. The school now has one graduate in the foreign mission fields while another is to leave for this work on January 1. Th dream of the Wesleyan Metho dist denomination, Prof. Smith said, was to make of the local college a, great institution and one that will compare with others throughout the south. Because of the small number of Wesleyans in the Southern stats, the work has grown steadily rather than by leaps and l-oun:ls. Hwev-.' a college course, theological course, high sichool and primary work are all available for students matriculating The cost to students is probably the lowest of any institution in the state, Prof. Smth said. The total co(st per') year' for eac'h studlent, in eluding board andl other expenses, is only $100. In .,accordlance with the dIoctrine of the (denomination, no inter-collegiate athletic games a'e permitted. Games and sports are encourged between the various classes but studen~its of the school are not allowed to indulge inl contests wvith other schools.

Hendricks when they were joint hos. tesses-last Tuesday afternoon at the home of the former and entertained in honor of Mrs. Van Clayton, a re cent bride. The attractive new bun galow of Mrs. Boggs was artistically decorated, green and white being the color scheme, together with sugges tions of the approaching Hallowe'en seasbn. The 'guests arrived before the honoree and were given hand painted cards upon whieh they were to write their best receipe for "man. aging a husband." These were later read by Mrs. Clayton and produced much comment and laughter. On the wall at the entrance of a nar row pathway made by green a:nd white crepe paler tied to chairs was a schedule of trips. and all unmarried ladies pi-esent were asked to write opposite the nian'e of a. month when they would begin the 'matriimonial journey. Mrs. Chiyton then began the journey down the pathway and tile first sign she encountered was, "Jt's a long, rocky road to. matri niony." She indeed found many orig inal signs and more than an armful of "rock" before she reached the end Cf the way. Upon opening thc-e "rocks" they were found to be 'iice and useful gifts from friends. Mrs Clayton was then given examination blanks and asked to stand an exan ination for entering matrimony. E'eh guests present asked a question re lating to the way she would do whO-j marriel alnd her answers, later read by Mrs. Boggs, were so good and ori ginal that it was unanimously voted that she be iven a first. grade eer tificate. The hostess, assisted by Miss Thelma Lewis, Bernice Carey, Mary Morris and Mrs. John C. Carey, served delicious fruit salad, san(d wiehes antd coffee. Mrs. Clayton was then given a market basket tied with green and white crepe paper and bearing the sign, "may your purse nlways be heavy and your heanr light," and asked to g marketing, This' she did by drawing from thi basket pieces of money (small card boards) upon which were direction where to find the right articles These proved to be jars of canne< fruits, jams and preserves.

At The Easley High School Building November 5th. There will be a meeting of the teachers of Pickens county held at the Easley High School Bulding Nov ember 5th, at 10:30 A. M. The pur pose of this meeting is to perfect.an organization for the benefit of the teachers of the county. A reading course will be discussed with numer ous other questions pertaining to the work of the teacher. Every teacher is urgently request ed to be present, for we believe this meeting will be of great benifit to all. If a reading course is inaugura ted it will be of great help to teach era in getting their certificates re iewed as well as helping seeure higher grade of certificate. The State Supervisor of Rural schools Mr. D. L. Lewis will be pre sent ind give valuable assistanse. Let every teacher in the county, whether he or she be teahing at the present time or not, feel it their duty to attend this meeting. Those teach ers who refuse to attend unless pro videntially hindered will not be given the same consideration as those who do attend. So please bear in this in iniid and come for your own as well as your schools good. F. V. Clayton. Supt. of Education. The Plesant Grove School building as well as the Town Creek school building has been completed and re ceived. They are now ready for oe cupancy, andi are credits to the old buldings they supplant. Other dis tricts anticipating building shouln see these buildings and go and do likewise. The Teachers examination was held Oct. 7th, and 8th., with about seven ty (70) standing. Previously there has been a larger number presenting themselves for certificates, and the fact that only 70 stood the examina tion this time leaves the impression that there might be a teacher short age in the county. The State Superintendant of Ed ucation forwarded to Pickens last week the State Aid for the Night l school work done during the past summer. Last year this money was n t received till November 11. Supt. of Education F. V. Clayton. has moved his offiee into the one pre viously occupied by the Sheriff. A door has been cut into an adjoining office thus giving two rooms for his work. This move was made necess ary by the increased work of the .compulsory attendance law being placed on the county Su perintendent. Those having business with the su perintendent of education will please -bear this in mind. County Agent T. A. Bowen may also be found occupy ing one of these oflices. D~r. O'Brien of Columbia is in Pick.. ens county mnak ing a mental Hygeine Survey of at least 5'00 school children of the county. This is a great step1 tow~ardI progress as it will some time in the future he of great assistance to the school workers in solving many dIifficulIt school problems.
