SERVICE FLAG UNVEILED11
AT 51ETIODIST CHURCH
Time Church has Sent Out Trihirty-Fjve
Men to the Army and One Won1n to
the Red Cross.
With impressive services. Sunday ev
ening a service flag was raised at the
First Methodist church in honor of
the thirty-five mni and one woman who
have gone out in the service of the
country. The flag was presented to the
church by th Davies Missionary Society
whose members made it with their own
hands. The flag contains thirty-live
stars for each of the thirty-five n.a
gone out from the church and a red
cross for the one woman member of
the church, Miss Fannie Boulware, who
has entered the Red Cross as a nurse.
The address of the evening was made
by Geo. B. Cromer, of Newberry.
The )resentation services were pre
ceded by a musical program, a reading
by Miss Rebecca Dial and prayer by
Rev. Squires. The first musical num
ber was "America" played oil the pipe
organ by the organist, Mrs. Hicks, fol
lowe(d by a medley of airs of the allied
nations. Just preceding the introduc
tion of Dr. Cromer Mr. John A. Ilicks
gave a stirring rendition of The
Mlarseilles. While the audience stood
and sang two verses of The Star Span
gled Banner the service flag was slow
ly raised by Misses Lois Fuller and
Myra Steadman, both of whom have
brothers4 in the service.
Dr. Cromer was introduced briefly
hy Rev. Steadman, pastor of the
church, who spoke of him as one whlo
hII(] given unselfishly of his time and
talents in the cause of his country.
The large congregation which heard
his masterly address was richly repaid
by his able, inspiring and patriotic it
terances. For over an hour he held the
rapt attention of his audience. He re
recounted the barbarous acts of the
Germans which finally forced this na
tion into the war and Justified the alli
ance of this nation with her present
allies, both by reason of the common
cause which they represent, by reason
of sentimental and racial ties and by
reason of debts which this nation owed
to France and 'England. Recalling the
gallant LaFayette and other French
men who had come to the assistance of
this country when she was fighting for
her freedom, he pointed out that at the
smrrender of Conwallis at Yorktownt
Frenchmen outnumbered Americans in
the army and navy which forced the
mapitulation of the British. Turning
to the eulogy of Eingland he said that
the War of the Revolution was not at
war of EInglishmuen against the Colon
ists but a war of a German elector oin
the 1English throne against the Aiperi
Pans. Such great Englishmen as Burke
[Ind Fox symna Ithized with the colon
Ists. There were more German Isol
rliers in the British army, he said, than
iEnglish. Touching various episodPe of
international significance since that
time the speaker came down to the
Spanish-American war when Admiral
Chichester, of the British navy, gave
an ominous warning to the German
Admiral Itetrich in Manilla Bay,
which no doubt prevented a wvar b~e
tween this country and Germany. D)r.
Cromer closed his address with a cut
logy of the men who had gone out from
thme church and mlade a stirring appleai
for patriotic suiport of them andl their
comrades inl Fratce. "They atre mnak
lag the great sacrifice," he said, "bmut
none of its yet have begun to sacrifice,.
France has p)ut 7,500,000 men in the
field out of a population of 35r,000,000
and thtat meant that every man, wvomtan
anld child had to make a supreme sac
iIflee thtat thme army amight conltinuec to;
fight. When this nation will htave doneI
whiat France has (lone she will have
25,000,000 men in thec field and nothing
bitt the 01ld men, cripples and children
wvill be left behind to work. For thtis
ireason,"' he continued, "it is fimeiative
that we shtoitld grant every request of
tihe government and sub~scr'ibe to ev
ery loan in order that an ear'ly and vie
toriouts peace nmaiy be won."'

To the Voters of the Fourth
Your loyal support of my candidacy for Congress, as shown
by the spelndid vote given me in the First Primary, fills me with
a sense of appreciation and a confidence of success in the Second.
My efforts to conduct a clean campaign upon a high plane,
eliminating personalties and discussing real, National Issues, of
vital imp >rtance, have met with approval. A just and fair critic
ism of the record of my opponent has shown that he has not
backed the Admini ration as he should in the Great War and
prepared~ness meas esin the_.sixtpfourth Congress. His opposi
tion to the Draf mfFi the sixty-fifth Congress,---that great
Democratic Measure, fundamentally necessary for winning the
war---demonstrates a want of appreciation of the magnitude of
the task before our Nation. Loyalty is the battle-cry of our reo
pie today; and fidelity to duty is demanded of every public offic
ial. This is no time for a question mark to be placed opposite
the F'ourth Congressional District of South Carolina.
Tne policies of our Government toward the war are set
tIed. In spite of our' unpreparedness, we shall win the war glo
riously, and the principles of Liberty shall become the heritage
of all the peoples of the earth. Your C'ongressman-elect will
have to face new problems that will come with peace. Our duty
is ta see that men best qualified to grapple with these great'
questions are elected.
My best endorsement, to which I shall always point with
pride, is the result in ward one in the City of Spartanburg, in
which my opponent and I both live, viz: Bomar 210, Nichols 200,
One thing more: The two weeks between the First and
Second Primaries are noted for the production of campaign lies.
If you will only recall what my opponent has stated time and
again on the stump, namely: "The only thing I have against
Horace Bomar is he wants my job," you will have no trouble in
dismissing as untrue any such manufactured tales as may ema
nate from some of his over-zealous supporters.
