A Clemson Student Gives'His
Impression of the Great
/ Editor Daily Item.
'. If-you can fimi space in the col
nips o? your paper, the publishing of j
this^lejtev will he appreciated.
Now that the.boll weevil has begun)
.its invasion of the State, and willi
^0mpVl farmers to change their i
methods of farming, it is probable j
?thai a large number are contemplat-?
i??ic SPkig into dairy farming. - This j
letter is being: written for the in- j
terest of such farmers, as these, of j
those already in the dairy business |
and oi' those who are interested in !
'v.,-the work being: don.e at Clemson Col-!
iiege. - - *
During the week of October 6-11 j
There was held at the Union Stock ;
Yards in Chicago, the National Dairy j
Show. This sh ?w was attended by
a party. from Clemson composed of |
t "VV. W. Fitzpatrick, professor of Dairy- j
in^,. and the, eleven seniors, taking j
ma^or work, in dairying. The man- j
ager of the National Dairy Show, Mr.. j
W. E. Skinner, has requested the stu- j
dents of all the colleges and universl-;
fies.:tha.t .attended the show to write i
articles to their county papers in or- i
der to create interest in the dairy in- j
dustry and to advertise the show
The most striking thing about the:
show was its magnitude. There were j
several phases of the show, but only j
three of them will he briefly taken up. ?
On October 6th, the students' judging i
.contest was held. Teams of three j
men each from fifteen Stete insti-1
tutions participated in this contest.:
These institutions are as follows, ac- i
cording to rank held, as resnlt^of con- j
test: . Kansas? South Dakota; Iowa, j
Minnesota. -Nebraska, Washington, j
Ohio, Clemson. Purdue, N. Y., Wis., j
Mass.. Md., Mo., N. H. The team j
representing Clemson was composed j
of Messrs. P. W. Allen, of Greenwood; 1
Tv H. Burgess of Oconee and S. A. i
McGee of Anderson. We feel that this}
team did remarkably well considering j
,th4t standing . of the institutions rep- j
resented-by the. teams which it de- ,
featedf The- success of this team can!
b^i oO?tributedr largely to its compe- i
'tent coach,-Professor Fitzpatrick. In |
. the history of the show, this is the j
c first thno that a college in the cotton i
'belt has .sent a team to the show. It {
is ho^e^ that ? team will be sent from j
Clemson every year from now on.
Ovw one thousand cattle of the !
five dairy breeds-n~Jersey, Guernsey, j
?olsi?Jn,- Ayrshire a?d- Brown Swiss,!
were.*exhibited-at the show. The ma- j

j exhibits at the show. The govern
jment had an exhibit on which it spent
j twenty-five thousand dollars. This ex
! hibit showed interesting data on. the
j dairy industry, ,the^ value . of dairy
!products ami the results of numerous'
experiments. One of the charts in i
J this exhibit showed the interesting j
[fact that South (^aretma leads in the
[number of Bull Associations in the]
United States, having thirteen to its j
credit. The next State in point of;
numbers is Pennsylvania, having nine. J
All the large concerns in the United i
States that sell dairy and creamery j
I supplies and equipment had their j
goods, on exhibit, with their machin
ery in operation. The largest cheese I
in the world at that time was dis-j
played at the show. This cheese i
weighed 32,000 pounds and was one
day's product of forty creameries.
Any one visiting this magnificent
show will certainly come away with
a better^ appreciation of the size of
the dairy industry and of the value of
the pure-bred /lairy cow; along with
the satisfaction that he has spent
his money to a profitable as well as.
a pleasure-giving purpose.

Large Class of Candidates For;
Shrine?Dr. Booth Elected
Florence, Nov. 28.?The Thanksgiv- j
ing day pilgrimage of Omar temple to!
this ciiy proved to be the biggest and;
best meeting the Shriners have ever]
held. In addition to the 2.5D? nobles !
here 572 candidates crossed the hot |
sands. The;entire day was given over;
to fun and frivolity and to the satis- i
faction o+> the innerman. The Flor- :
encc ?nrine club had made all pre- J
paration for the entertainment of the'
visiting nobles and their effort was
altogether successful.
The following officers were nomin- j
ated at the meeting yesterday morn- j
ing: Potentiate, E. S. Booth. Sumter; [

A notable- feature of the ceremonial |
yesterday was the Thanksgiving day j
service conducted by the Rev. John j
A. Graves of Latta. This was a most j
impressive service and one that the!
nobles highly approved. The absence |
. jm their homes of the nobles on J
Thanksgiving day has been the sub- j
ject of a great deal of dissatisfaction!
and has led tot he. discussion /Of a j
change in date of the fall meeting of j
Omar. The service yesterday was an j
innovation that has been most highly j
commented on.
Among the most important matters?
occurring at the business- meeting of!
the temple was th_e resolution adopted \
to the effect *hat Omar temple should j
own its own home. A committee of:
five will be appointed by the new j
potentate, E. S. Booth of Sumter, to j
look into the matter of a suitable site i
somewhere within the jurisdiction of |
Another resolution of interest wail
the call for a referendum on the con- ;
templated change in the date of the j
fall meeting as many of the Shriners,
do not want to leave their homes on j
Thanksgiving day. The suggested
change in the day of the session is.
meeting with approval.
There was much yesterday for the.
pleasure of the Shriners. A fine tur- j
key dinner was served at the Central
school grounds and last night there j
were a big dance at Pinewood club, j
a street dance, smoker in the Ma- j
sonic temple, and a reception at the;
residence of J. F. Muldrow.
The mayor of the city welcomed j
the visitors in a most pleasing ad-!
dress and gave the city over to them
unreservedly. While the attendance;
was in excess of the number anticipat-.;
ed Florence took care of the nobles j
in fine style and there is no doubt that i
they en.1oyed their visit here. The pa-1
rade in which the 57?2 candidates and j
the,' 2.500 nobles, took part, led by j
the fine bands was a most attractive!
feature, of the day. At.the Thanks-:
giving service an offering of $1.000
was taken for the five church orphan
ages in the. State, and offering of
more than $50-0 was taken up for the.
Mary P. Ontz home.

Supreme Court Dismisses Hydej
Petition?Grace Will Be
Columbia. Nov. 29.?The supreme j
court yesterday dismissed the petition j
brought to the court yesterday morn- j
ing by counsel lor Mayor Tristan T.-j
Hyde Of Charleston for a writ of;
eertiorari to compel the city Demo- j
eratic executive committee to submit!
the records and other data in con-)
nection with the recent action and;
the declaring of .John P. Grace the!
nominee for mayor. The writ also ask- )
ed that the committee be compelled j
to canvas the contested ballots, the;
throwing out of which wiped out the j
majority of Mayor Hyde over Mr. ?
j The court emphasized that the dis-j
missal calls for the end of the pro- !
longed litigation and the composure!
of the public mind. 'There is a!
third party tot he controversy. That j
party is the public of the ? city of
Charleston. Further litigation is not i
only brought to an end by the bar of \
the way of.the (general) election, but;
the great puhlic, not concerned in the
contentions of the parties thereto, is
to be preferred to personal ambition
and factional strife. It calls for the
end of litigation and the composure
of the public mind."
The court divided, on the issue. The
majority opinion was written by As
sociate Justice Gage and was concur
red in by Chief Justice Gary and As- j
sociate Justice Watts. The dissent
ing opinion was filed by Associate
Justice Hydrick and was concurred in
by Associate Justice Fraser.
Last week the court in a majority
opinion declared the ^lection null and
void. Associate Justice 'Hydrick re
minded that the court in the first case
declared neither Mr. Hyde or Mr.
Grace the nominee, because the nomi
nation was illegal and it was ordered
set "aside. Continuing the petition
outlined the litigation before the court
in the election case, in which an opin
ion was handed down that the court
could not assume that W. Turner Lo
gan, chairman, and the members of
the committee would not declare the
result of the primary according to
"It i appears now from the verified
petition of Mr. Hyde that the commit
tee did not do what was assumed it
could do, but that it met, on Novem
ber 25, and by its action and method
of procedure, practically set at naught
and nullified the decision ? of this
court, or its procedure was clearly
contrary to that which we had point
ed out to be the proper procedure in
clear and unmistakable terms. I can
not consent to an order which, in
effect, allows a party to a cause to
set at naught and nullify a decision
of this court in that cause."
Contending that the committee has
plenty of time to make an investiga
tion of the rejected ballots, of which
.77 were challenged votes and 14.
mutilated ballots, before the date of
t-he general election, the dissenting
opinion holds that Mr. Hyde has the
"r-hght to have this done and that the
court in assuming jurisdiction of the
cpse decided that he had acquired
rights under the primary election
statue and the rights should be pro
tected and enforced by the courts.
