Domestic Art Krhibit.
? ...--?--. -
A very interesting Domestic Art
J exhibit was shown in the Girl's
, High School building last Wednes
| day. Those who visited the exhibit
were delighted with what they saw.
One of the most attractive features
was the fact that there were about
20 girls sitting on an elevation and
wearing the dresses that they them
selves had made. The articles ex
hibited were varied and highly at
tractive and reflected great credit
upon, this department of the work
of the Girl's High School. In or
der that the reader may get an idea
of the course given in the depart
ment of Household Economics a
brief summarj' is given below:
Problems:
1. Sewing Bag.
2. Guest Towel.
? Table Runner.
. 4. Combinations.
/ T>. Night Gown.
6. Slip.
The first problem given in the
First Year High School is a simple
sewing bag. This is given in order
to, teach.the children the elemen
tary .stitches, such as basting, over
handing, overcasting, combination,
hemming. running and ; feature
stitch. The next subject is a study
of household linens which includes
the guest towel and table runner.
The principles taught on these
problems are fine embroidery and
coarse, embroidery, and the stitches
taught are. the outline, chain, satin
} and buttonhole stitches. Another
i important point stressed is the
j beauty of designs and color combi
, nations. From these problems the
j girls proceed to the making of
' undergarments, such as combina.
tions, gowns and slips. A study of
the. different parts of the machine
and how to use it is given at this
point. They are taught the careful
selection of materials and laces,
and to estimate the cost-of each
garment. The principles taught on
these problems are the different
kinds of seams, different methods
of putting on laces, the method of
making lace joints, plackets and
the working of buttonholes. Some
of the more advanced pupils were
allowed to make dresses in this
class and were given credit for so
doing.
Second Year Domestic Art.
Problems;
1. . Laundry Bag.
.2 Cooking Apron and Cap.
3. Patching and Darning.
4. Petticoat.
5. ^.Kimono.
G. Middy Suit.
7. Dress.
The first problem given in the
second year is the laundry bag.
This is given as a review of the
machine stitching and also because
it is a useful problem in the home.
Since the girls in this class have
domestic science the following
year., they are .given an opportunity
of making their own caps and
aprons. Every child should know
how to care for her own clothes,
so just at lhis time they are taught
patching and darning. Then they
are given such problems ns the
j petticoat, kimono, middy suit, and
j dress to make, which is sometimes
[a review of principles already
'taught and also the additional of
I new ones. The most important
I point stressed in this work is the
[careful selection of materials ac
; cording to their suitability, dura
j bility. and cost.
1 The exhibit in domestic ail in
cluded a number of each of these
j problems beginning with th<- sim
ple sewing bag to the advance
problem of making a dress. There
were also a display of note-books
; which were required of each Kir].
? Each girl in the domestic science
class was required to make a chart
i which emphasized some of the
I principles taught in domestic sci
ence including well-balanced
I menus, composition of different
foods, cuts of meats, products
made fn?m the different fond prin
ciples, and typical foods contain
ing each, how tu set a table for a
formal luncheon, meat substitutes,
foods harmful to the body, the
most nourishing foods for the
sick, proper diets for pepole of
different ages and occupations,
and many other subjects of like
importance. In addition to this,
?the girls in each class have pre
pared and served a breakfast and
a luncheon. Those in the senior
class prepared .and served a very
formal luncheon on May 11th. /

GOVERNOR
& ARVE Y TO GO
4! TO ASHEVILLE \
He Will Deliver Two Ad
dresses Before South Caro
lina Bankers' Convention
Columbia. June 14.?Gov. Wilson
G. Harvey left this morning early
for Asheville, where he attends the
annual convention of the South
Carolina Bankers' Association,
which convened in the "Land of the
Sky" capital last evening.
Governor Harvey Is 1 to speak
twice at the. convention... One of
his speeches will be delivered as. a
sort of dialogue with Governor
Morrison, of North Carolina. It
will be restaging of the old-time
drama entitled, "What the Govern
or of North Carolina said to the
governor of South Carolina." And
yet there will be something entire
ly, different about it. Both the
governors are tee-totalers.. What
they will say to each other is not
known, though the little dual
speech, will probably be accom
panied with a. toast, drunk in
grape juice or ice tea.
Governor Harvey will also deliv
er one of the- main addresses of the
bankers' convention. Before leav
ing the capital, this morning the
chief magistrate was asked what he
would talk on.. He stated that he
had been, thinking out his speech,
and it would deal with law-enforce
ment, calling the attention of the
bankers that it is up to them to
aid in law enforcement as much
as for anyone else; that without a
strong sentiment in favor of law
enforcement, the task.of enforcing
the laws is made difficult.
Before leaving, Governor Harvey
was -asked about the petition for
the commutation of the sentence of
Jesse Gappins, one of the murder
trio which dies in the state peni
tentiary Friday, from death to.life
imprisonment. "I'll be out of the
city till after the execution." the
governor said: "and I have taken no
action in regard-to the petition. I
have been shown no reason why
the decision of the court should
be changed, and it will not be
changed," he said.

Strike Settlement

- - - .*'.*
Operators and Miners Trying
To Get Together
Cincinnati. June 13 (By the As
sociated Press).?That a. move
jnent has been under way for some
time among coal operators of the
central competitive field to .come
together in conference with the
miners looking to a settlement of
the national coal strike was ad
mitted bsre today by William
Green, secretary of the United
Mine Workers.
The statement was made by Mr.
Green following a report from
Cleveland quoting T. K. Maher,
president of the Maher Collieries
company, as saying that confer
ences of operators were going on
throughout the country in an ef
fort to end the strike.
. .. Mr. Green stated that it wouM
appear from the Cleveland dis
patches that a sufficient tonnage
is ,being assembled to insure a
conference. of operators and min
ers. He explained. that it- would
be necessary for operators join
ing in the conference to control
enough coal. production that any
wage agreement they would make
with the miners would be the basis
for pay Throughout the central
competitive field, which "in turn is
the basing scale for all other soft
coal fields operating union mines.
?'The miners are x-ea?y to meet
the operators of the. central com
petitive field, on a substantial ton
nage basjs and have been, since the
beginning of. the strike," said Mr.
Green. .
. Information as to the operators
who were being, brought together
for the conference was lacking, Mr.
Green said, and added that he could
not say if a sufficient tonnage had
been brought.together until he saw
the names of the operators who
were willing to go along with the
plan.
? A conference this week, 3Jjr.
Green said, could not be held and
if the plan went through the
earliest date that miners and op
erators could get together would
. be some time next week.
