Union, S. C., Dec. 13th, 1918.
To the Editor,
Union, S .C.
Dear Sir: As a tax payer and patron
of the Union County Public
Schools, I wish to enter a protest
at closing the schools on account of
the infligsaca situation.
Dr. W. A. Evans, professor of Hyiene
in Northwestern University and
former health compiissioner of Chicago,
is tn my humble opinion, one
of the best authorities on the subjects
of this kind and our local board
of health must take this same view
or they would not have passed a resolution
that at this time a quarantine
was not necessary. Dr. J. A. Hayne,
state health officer, says let school
closing come last.
Dr. Evans made the statement that
the Chicago public schools did not
close durine the eDidemic some two or
three months ago and that the percentage
of cases among the school
cildren was very much lower than
among the adults of the city and that
the percentage was very much lower
than many places where the schools
W^here does the reason come in, in
closing the schools and allowing public
gatherings in every other place?
It is a fact that one of the teachers
quarantined from school before they
were closed on account of living in
the same building where there was a
case of influenza secured employment
immediately in one of the stores as
a clerk. A student quarantined for
the same cause secured a position in
another store as a clerk.
A child must now attend school
until he or she reaches the age of
from 21 to 23 in order to complete a
college education, and if this slipshod
quarantine keeps up they will
have to live to be old men and women
before they can complete their education,
or sacrifice it.
I am a firm believer in a strict
quarantine that is enforced, but this
method of closing scools, making the
school children the ffoat with every
thing else wide open, is in my opinion
r South Carolina stands next to the
last state in the Union with relation
to ILLITERACY and much more of
-this wiU place Iter at tin tail end
If the schools were open my children
would be there but as they are
not, they are healthy and full of energy
and must be doing something, why
not learning something that will he of
benefit to them in the duties they
will be called upon to perform in

UNION MILL NOTES
The Christian people of our community
are much pleased over the
news of the excellent report rendered
by Green street M. E. church through
their pastor, Rev. J. B. Chick. The
church people tendered their contribution
to the extent of 100 per cent to
all objects that church fosters, with
an additional contribution of $75 to
the conference at large. This is probably
the best report presented in the
history of the church. We can say
again on good authority that this report
was among the best tendered
the conference. We think this can be
attributed to the consecrated efforts
of both Rev. Chick and his active
stewards in endeavoring to have their
people with one mind centered on
Christ, asking his guidance in all
things pertaining to the progress of
is cause among mankind.
The mill management, as we see it,
is from time to time growing with
the neonle Our ncnn^a ora loo. (rone.
ient and as we get a better insight
of each other, our business relations
are blended together in an extensive
measure with our purpose in
mind to obtain higher ideals and continue
to grow in our activities. We
expect to accomplish a bright future.
WARNING AGAINST RABBI
AND HIS DEPUTY
Amsterdam, Nov. 8.?(Correspondence
of the Associated Press).?The
Jewish Correspondence Bureau at
the Hague has issued a warning
against the Turkish Grand Rabbi,
Ihaim Nahum and his deputy, Nissin
Nazliah, who have arrived at the
Hague from Constantinople on their
way to America and Paris, with the
Intention, the bureau says, of creating
a sentiment favorable to Turkey,
particularly in America, and of playing
off the interests of the Entente
Powers in the East, one against another.
"Ihaim," fchf bureau says," is an opponent
of Jewish national and Zionist
aspirations. The Jewisn people
views its liberations from the Turkish
yoke and a British protectorate as
th* only way So attain an independent
; Jewish State."
