Clemson College, March 25?The
Southeastern Guernsey Breeders' Association
held its first annual sale of
purebred Guernsey cattle at Darlington,
Saturday, March 20th. Thirtytwo
registered Guernseys were sold
for an average of $425.00 per head.
The highest priced animal was an
' eight-months old heifer which sold for
$1250.00 to K. M. James, Darlington,
S. C. Only four head of the
thirty-two sold were purchased by
parties outside of South Carolina.
Darlington County breeders consigned
16 to the sale and the farmers of
that county purchased 18 at the sale.
Eight farmers of Darlington County
who had never owned purebred
Guernseys purchased one or more animals.
In connection with the sale the
Darlington Purebred Association held
a show of Guernsey cattle at which
53 ^animals were exhibited. The
prizes were awarded by Prof. W. H.
Howell of the University of Georgia,
"This sale and show," says J. P.
Lamaster, Extension Service Dairy

THE WORLD AT LARGE
The Allies are at odds regarding the
policing of the Ruhr River basis
where the Communists are running
rampant. Being in the neutral zone
east of the Rhine, under the terms
of the Peace Treaty the German Government
has been prohibited from
sending tr ops to that section, and,
since the Allies have no troops there,
the efforts of the Communists to set
up a Soviet regime in the various cities
have gone forward without let or
hindrance. Becoming alarmed at the
growing seriousness of tlie situation
the German Government sent repeated
requests to the Allies for permission
to send troops to restore constitutional
government and finally, no
reply having been received, has proceeded
to take such action without
waiting further for the reply. The delay
in the Allied reply is said to have
been due to conflicting views regarding
the matter held by the French
and British Governments. The French
claim that, if the Ruhr situation calls
for the employment of an armed
force, an Allied force umnl/i Ke

\vhi 11? the British feel that it is better
to let the German Government itself
attend to the matter. Apparently the
outcome will he that the situation will
he handled entirely by Germany, the
French (Jovernment entering a protest
is a base to future action in case
there is arty attempt to keep German
troops in the neutral zone after
normal conditions are restored. Of
interest in this connection is a report
recently read by Marshall Foch before
the Ambassador's Council at Paris
to the clFcct that Germany has
more than the Allies and that she also
has 0,000 heavy guns.
The ex-Kaiser is being closely
guarded by the Dutch Government,
police officers being detailed to follow
him, a few steps in the rear, as he
walks about the garden of the Bentinck
Castle at Amerongen. Anti-militarist
and anarchist societies of Holland
are reported to be arranging a
demonstration against the continued
residence of the Ilohenzollern family
MR. STEVENSON IS OPTIMISTIC
P. H. McGowan
In Columbia State
Washington, March 2d?Congressman
Stevenson of South Carolina, a
man who sticks closely to his "Amen
Corner" in the house,dias been keeping
tab on Republican doings and
finds nothing whatever to warrant the
belief put forth through G. O. I'. organs
that the Republicans are certain
to lick the Democrats again this year
and come back with a big majority.
Far from it. He pointed out today
that among other assets the G. O. I'.
may claim the proud record that one
of the leading members of the upper
house has been convicted of conspiring
to buy a senatorship and sentenced
to the penitentiary, lie admits
that thus far no Democrat has achieved
The Republicans have spent, Mr.
Stevenson finds $2,000,000 and have
not discovered one scintilla of evidence
upon which to introduce n vote
of censure on any official. He finds
the Republicans as badly split as they
were in 1910 when Uncle Joe Cannon
was dethroned and "Cannonism" abolished
Making a careful investigation of
the situation, Mr. Stevenson said today:
"There has been a pessimisticwave
as to Democratic prospects
throughout the country for sometime
past. Durinp the week just pone by,
the skies have brightened greatly. The
Republican organization in the house
has been so badly divided and demoralized
that on last Friday the majority
of the rules committee were overturned
and control of the parliamentary
situation pi von to the Democraic
members on the hill to pive a
onus to the navy personnel. This is
the same thinp that happened ten
ve.ors apo, on the same day of March,
when Uncle Joe Cannon was overthrown,
and it was the bopinninp of
the end of Republican control of conpress
and foreshadowed a Democratic
victory which was realized next fall
iit. the election.
"Furthermore the Republican house
lias set on foot 17 investigations and
have found nothing sufficient on
which even to introduce a vote of censure
of any official, much less to indict
one, while on the other hand, Senator
Mewherry and 1(5 eolnborers, one of
them an official of Republican head<|uarters,
have been convicted of conspiring
to buy a senatorship and sentenced
to the penitentiary. The jury
that convicted them was composed of
ten Republicans and two Democrats.
"When you see the achievement of
the Democratic party and place along
dde of it the barreness of a year's
vork of tin- Republican party and its .
political attitude towards the treaty, \
made possible by the vote of this con- \
vict, 'you can see that the Democratic \
skies are brightening. And strange to
say,this demoralization of the Republican
party in congress has not even
been hinted at by the papers in tho
