INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL WELFARE MAN SAYS THE INSTI TUTION IS IN BEST CONDITION HE HAS SEEN IT. ABOUT 200 BOYS PRESENT JBuIldings Are in Fairly Good Repair, While Farm Is Fourishing With Many Vegetables. Columbia. Secretary 0. Croft Williams of the -state board of public welfare visited the South Carolina Industrial School for Boys recently and reports the school in excellent condition. He said thin school was in better condition at the time of this visit than he had ever seen it. John H. Martin is superin tendent of the institution and Mr. Wil liams considets him a young man of -energy, possessing a grasp of the sit uation and an excellent knowledge of the details of the school. About 200 boys were present on the day of this visit and they appeared to be happy and well employed, ac cording to Mr. Williams. The boys need more clothing, both under clothes and top clothes. However, the gover nor has granted from his contingent fund a sufficient amount to purchase military suits for the boys. "Recreation is looked after careful ly," Mr. Williams said. "The founda tion of the hospital that was projected and 'then abandoned soveral years ago has been converted into a swim ming pool. This pool is 36 by 75 feet and in depith grades from about four and a half to six feet. The brass band is progressing well, though being hin dered by a set of ancient and harsh Instruments. The boys are delighted with the music that they make and are working very hard. One boy was offered his parole several weeks ago but refused to go home as he desired to go on with his study of music. Ten- 1 nis and baseall are also engaged in by the students. "The campus is gradually improving, several plots of flowers having been planted. This campus has been chang ed so often that it is difficult to make anything uniform out of it, but the present management will be con tinuous and a plan may therefore be adhered to. "The buildings were in fairly good repair, though some expenditure is needed along this line. The buildings were clean inside, and showed fairly good care. "The farm is flourishing with corn, peas, sorghum and many vegetales. Some canning has been done and much more is planned. The live stock appeared to ho in good condition, al though more cows for the herd are needed. "The academic department is being stressed. We believe that this de partment should he puished, as mios: of the boys enter the school with iitt'o or no education. The industries are going along well and have good men ait the hecad of them. HIghway Contract Awarded.

South Carolina has received . total ipoprtionmont of $5,007,854.84 of fed 3ral aid for roads and bridges to date, 3xclusive of the $707,000 available July L of this year, acording to figures an lounced by the state highway depart. anent. Of this total $4,935,728.28 has already been allotted, leaving $72,. L26.56 for allotment. . These figures include all the aid sup. plied since the policy of federal aid was established by the government. If the $707,000 to be available July 1 s counted, the total apportionment to south Carolina will be $5,714,854.84. Of the total apportionment $821,374. 77 has been allotted to major bridge projects of the state, not including $250,000 to be given to the Ashley river bridge at Charleston out of the new appropriation available July 1. The Santee bridge of Murray's ferry heads the list with aid amounting to $423,734.69. Charleston county takes first rank in the aid apportionment with $251,. 184.82, while Richland is second with $244,185.55. These figures do not in. elude allotments made out of the new appropriation available July 1. Some of the other larger amounts includo $174,155.09 to Anderson county, $101,. 695.09 to Beaufort, $104,900.54 to Flor ence, $127,852.39 to Greenville. $100, 198.95 to Greenwood, $109,840.60 to Lexington, $160,689.18 to Orangeburg, $206,259.21 to Spartanburg, $138,804.16 to Sumter, $104,617.04 to Union and $115,032.07 to York. Cotton Conditions Better. South Carolina cotton mills are now working more employes than during he corresponding period of last year, iccording to reports of the depara nent of agriculture, factory inspection livision, for 1922, up through May. rho number of employes in the mills is announced by the inspectors is 57, 101 as compared with 50,276 in June, .921. The general condition of the mills s reported to be good, the increase in he employes indicating more work Ind more products turned out. This ncreaso of 6,934 employes over last ,ear was found despite the fact, that 8 mills were closed when the inspec ions were made, it was announced. The report also shows that condi. ions now, as regards employes, are letter than in either 1919 or 1921. In .919 the number of employes was 50, 98 and in 1920 the number was 52, 28. White males employed in the mills ar outnumber all others with 33,816 or 1922 as against 16,843 white fe nalen. The number of negro men was 1,264 and the number of negro won mn was 635. The number of white boys aetween the ages of 14 and 16 years was 1,193 and the number of white iris between the ages of 14 and 16 was 1,250. No negroes between the ages of 14 and 16 were employed in the mills, the report shows. An increase in the mills of 4.796 males over last year is noted in the report and 1,757 females as well as 171 negro men. These increases in ,he number of employes, the inspec ors believe, point to much better con litions in the cotton mill industry in outh Carolina. Neather Favors Plant Growth.

LUBRICATION IS MOST ESSENTIAL Highest Grade and Correct Main tenance of it Are Necessary for Smooth Control. NEED OF SIMPLE PRECAUTIONS Choice of Particular Oii Is for Compe. tent Engineer to Make-Four Basic Factors Affected by Design of Engine. The correct lubrication of an auto mobile, truck or tractor motor de pends on the following three condi tions, all within the control of the operator: The use of lubricating oil of thu highest quality; the use of the correct grade of this high-quality oil to meet the engine operating condi tions exactly ; prover urecautions to maintain the quality of the lubricant while in service and to make adjust ments to insure Its delivery in exactly the correct quantities to the friction surfaces. Failure of the operator to give the necessary attention to any one of these conditions may result in im paired performance. The lubricant plays a vital part in insuring smooth, regular operation and the mnainte mance of power output at its maxi mum; or increased operating costs. Repairs due to incorrect lubrication are frequent and costly. Also, the use of the wrong oil or the improper use of the correct oil tends to increase fuel consumption, the number of forced stops and the rate of depreci ation. Few Simple Precautions. With so iuch dependent on the cor rect lubrication of your engine, it wouli be unwise to neglect the few simple precautions necessary to in sure the very best of results. The choice of the correct oil for any particuiar engine is a matter for a competent engineer. It involves the following four basie lubricating fac tors affected by engine design: First-Engine operating tempera ture (lependis primarily on the service or "loading" of the engine. The steady. uninterrupted, amost full-load work of the tractor engine determines high tentperatures ats contraste'. with the intermittent, variable-load work en counterel by the truck or passenger car engine. The engine size, the capacity of the cooling system and the fuel used are some of the other fea tures of design whieh have ia bear ing on operating temperatures. As all oil tendis to lose body or thin out inler heat we are naturally intlu en(edl towardl the use of heavier hodietl oils where operating tem1pera tures are high. Distribution of Ol.

TROOPS IN SIBERIA TO dE MTHDRAWN JAPAN AGREES TO HAVE LAST SOLDIER WITHDRAWN BY OCTOBER 30. TO PROMOTE VORLO PEACE Action Being Taken at Tokio by Dip lomatic Advisory Council; Nation o nRocord. Tokyo. - Japan sealed her pledge to promote world peace, taken at the limitation of armaments conference at Washington, by declaring her final de cision to withdraw her troops from SI. beria and announcing to the world a policy of non-aggression. The diplomatic advisory council at Tokyo fixed October 30 as the (lay when the last Japanese soldiers must be out of the maritime provinces of Siberia, while a foreign official do. clared that the decision was intended to place Japan on record na a "non aggressive nation to maintain the peace of the world." The diplomatic advisory council's ap proval of cabinet decision is said to have been the logical outcome of Ad miral Baron Kato's accession to the premiership. Kato, who led the Japanese delega tion to the Washington arms confer ence, returned to Tokyo thoroughly imbued with the spirit of that gather ing and strongly in favor of his coun try adopting a non-aggressive policy. The oYlcial announcement of Sibe rian evacuation says: "The .Japanese governmont has de cided to withdraw all troops from the maritime provinces of Siberia by O' tober :10. Suitable moasures will be taken for the protection of Japanese residents." An official of the f'oreign office. coln mentiug on the decision to quit. Sibe ria, said: "It has been a matter of regret that various circumstances Irovented .Ia pan from carrying out her desire to withdraw her troops from Siberia. "It can not he said that political conditions there have attained full sta bility. but a change has occurred in the general conditions of the whole of Russia. ('ominunistlic measures seem to havo been mod ifl.'.
