Te census blreau's. report of cot
tonl ginned in this state rin)or to No
vember I it ft iscloses ilte interestin t
fact that hile counties -had ginned to,
lial date 1(ore bales than were gin
ined to the Samllie date last year. This
fact is interesting in that these inie31(
counties -*(ere all in the lower pa rt
1f, tle state where tihe boll weevil first
began to make Iiis r1avages. The counil -
lies 'Ire Aliken, Allendale. Hlaimberg, I
Iarnwell, Beaufort, Colleton, I)orches
Ier, llampton andl .asper. These
cotislltis are evidently beginning to
"come ba'k" in cotton raising, though
very slowly -for evel with tie increas
ed yield the total is very smnall. A be
inninig, however, is what conilts.
They hav (emonstrated that lrogress
van be made against the weevil even
tlougli he imiight not -be exterminated.
lFy next year the ta)les should begin

This week is being obseved $ill ov
er the United States as E0ducational
Week. The special celebraJ0on is be
ing pronoted by the national 'Bureau
of IEducation, In cooperation with the
Anmerican I egion and the National
IEducational Association.
South Carol'ina is participathing in
the celebration. Leaders in education
in tle state are attempting to focus
the attelition of its citizens oil the
need of education as an instrinnent of t
progress and prosperity.
South Carolina ranks very low
ailoig other states of tile uni ion in il
literacy. Tihe southern states coin
pare very unfavorably with other
states of the union in the same respect. t
To promote educational progress In
the state and southern states coilnpari
Sois are being made with olier states
as to the amounts expended per capita
for education. The comparisons rep
resent a serious reflection on u1s in outr
educational endeavors. It is safe to
say that the low standing of southern
states in .illiteracy Is due to lack of
education aliong the nlegrocs.
Accepting 'the argulent of our edum
cators that prosperity goes hand in
haIY1d with ed.ucation, .It is a logical
conclusion that, tile coll.parat.tive pov
orty of the south is due to its unedu
cated population. . -

ship of approximately 70,000 members.
"During the past year, I estimate
that from 5,000 to 8,000 negroes-have
left our chureh in South Carolina,"
he said. "Some churches are prac
tically (epopulated--only two or three
imembers ieuainlng. It might be re
marked that our collections have not
fallen off very much, this being due
probably to the redoubled efforts
which have been put forth by those
who have remained.
Flock to Cities
":Most of the negroes who have left
le state have gone to New York and
'h icago, and the counties from which
he migration has been heaviest are
Xbbeville, Greenwooi and McCormick.
n somlie sections, %wh-eIre the boll wee- 1
ii has boon particularly destructive, I
he treatment giveni the tenants has I
een harsh. Even the chickons and
le cabbages in the gardens have -been I
aken from tenants so that there has
ween actually distress; in the lower I
ci rt of Abbeville an(d t he upper part
)f Edgelield countries the distress has
ween acute. Where harsh treatment J
ias bven given tenants they are leav
ng; where there has been a disposi- I
ion to be lenient, the tenants are c
ta ying.
'Tells of linsinig
"Another factor Ithat has had much
nIMluince in this migration are the let
ers that have come back from tile
nen and women who have gone North.
'hey are glowing and tell what. the
vriters make---not wiat they save.
"I went to tNew York to see just
low things were with these people. I
>elieve I had rather stay here in the
bouth, under the present conditions
han tinder the conditions which 1 Ir
cund as regards housing. The people
vere packed in the houses, sonetimes
wo or three families living in one e
oom. The crowded conditions were
Riod. It is true that the,!) caln make
niore ioney there, but they can save
nore here and have more, too-have
nore room and space I mean.
"if tenants who have had a bad t

iey aire leaving.
"The Ku Klux Klan. too, is a factor
n this migration. The negroes are
tiaid of it and it is a menace to a
settling down' among them.
Would Hold 3eetlntis
"I have instructed ministers to make
lpeeches to tir congregations
Lgailst this .migration. I ai opposed
0 it.
"If meetings Were 110.1d In every
ounty, at aWhlich -both -whites and n1e

ieve the tide would be stemmed. if
he white people would let .the negro
