Charleston, H. ('., Dee. 13. Nino bil
lion dollnrs is the price American
farmers get for their crops every year,
while enough is added by middlemen
so that the consumers pay twenty-seven
billion dollnrs for the samo crop, ac
cording to the statement of rural cred
it and marketing experts before the
Southern Commercial Congress, which
opened here today. The House of
Southern Governors also began a 5 day
meeting. Cotton, credits and commerce
will be the big subjects most discussed
by botii bodies. Fence and prosperity
also will have place on the program.
Members of the congress were told
by speaker's favoring rural credit leg
islation that the farmer gets thirty
five cents and the middleman sixty
five cents of each dollar the consumer
pays for the farmer's crops. There is
nn enormous u in omit of waste, especial
ly in perishable products, because of
the lack of a central, directing market
intelligence, they said.

Has Warm Praise For
School Student Body
The high school student body is to be
congratulated upon its disclaimer of the
football championship. It is frnnkly
confessed that a man over-age was
played in dieobedienee to the rules of
the association. That the boys snd
girls of our high school should de
cide in open meeting that it would be
wrong to claim the championship un
der those eonditions and that they
would waive all claim to it should be a
matter of pride to every citizen of our
eity. It was not only an easy decisioi
tc make. It was a victory of con
science. It shows that they prize hon
esty above honors, character mnre
than sthletie per-eminence. It is by far
the greatest victory of the season and
decades from now there will be echoes
of this moral triumph of youthful
democracy in hearts and souls that to
day helped to win it A score of years
hence there will b. a straightness of
character, a atauchness of principle
and eenrage of ntterance traceable fr
today's victory of right over wrong, of
the abiding over the passing.
