of Jamea B. Due and the annual
State Carolina football game were
among the outstanding matters of
interest in the Capital City last week.
There was little doing in administra
tion, circles, the Governor devoting
a lapge portion of his time to the
State Fair which he pronounced ex
cellent, especially the, agricultural ex
hibits. However, there was consid
erable interest in the report that the
Salary and Wag Commission had
received a number of protests, and
would -consider them at meeting next
month. It is understood that the
, protests are chiefly against the class
ification of salaries Which many em
ployes hold will cut them off from
hope of advancement in the state
The fair, despite a week considera
bly marred by rain, was a great suc
cess. 0. Max Gardner amply justi
fied the trust reposed in him by his
associates when they elected him
president of , the organization. The
many and varied exhibits of what the
state is doing, the added midway
features, the livestock, chicken and
other animal displays and the horse
and trotting races were all enjoyed by
throngs each day. The annual foot
ball game between State College and
Carolina, which the latter team won
17 to 0, was the center of interest
