Roving About Carolina By John A "GOOD THING" DID ORANGEBURG, S. C. "Can anything good come out of Orangeburg?" That was the ques tion the late Dr. J. C. Parler Joked an the day he walked into my newspaper office in the late 1940's. He was buried In Orange burg Tuesday afternoon with some 2.000 persons at his funer al. Floral bearers handled an al most endless stream of floral tributes. Unknown then outside of Orangeburg, where he was prin cipal of Wilkinson High School, Dr. Parler had visited our office seeking support in his planned race to become president of the state teachers' organization. He won in 1950 and was re - elected in 1952. His Joking about "anything good" coming out of Orangeburg was a take - off on the genera criticism of the late Dr. Jotxn P. Burgess, also of Orangeburg, who had been accused by those pressing for equalization of teacher salaries and facilities in public schools as being opposed to the movement Mr. Parler opened a carefully prepared folder and outlined his own program for general improvement of conditions for teachers and, as far as ha could reasonably go, also for bettering public school conditions for Negroes. His rise was meteoric, and Included numerous areas. If he could have heard eulogists at his funeral Tuesday, he would have had the answer to his own question. All of them, and admittedly far short of words for citing his countless successes for good," said he was "the good thing" which came out of Orangeburg that is up to now. ( Old friend Raymond Claggett, upon spotting me on the boulevard, cried out: "Oh, my God! I know my name's going to be In The Pittsburgh Courier next week!" He's enjoying living In retirement from his years of faithful work at S. C. State College. The death of Dr. Parler recalls what some quarters said a decade ago, when he was in the race for the presidency of South Carolina State College: "His color is his biggest handicap." THEY HAVE FUN LXNCOLNVTLLE, S. C. One little group of the town's ladles keep up a conspiracy against Mrs. W. A. Barron, principal of the Llncolnyilla School' and long - time . - Atfc - if'rt.:. - . H. McCray staunch member of Ebenezer AME Church. These ladles, with Mrs. Ruth Ross, Emmaline Mance and Rachel R. McCray, conspire to shock and startle Mrs. Barron out of friendly devilment and worse, they brag about successes, behind her back, of course. All of them would nearly faint, however, were we to repeat here the little tale they "shook up" Mrs. Barron with the other day. It has to do about a pretty, per fumed, beribboned Persian cat that pranced along the street the bell about her neck tinkling, and happily singing, "All I want for Christmas is two pretty little kittens." Ladies! You'd better not let Rev. W. J. Gadsden hear about this, for he just might put all of you out of church. Speaking of the church. Ebenezer AME Church Is really pretty now that it has been almost brick - veneered. It's the largest in tha area. Rav. Mr. Gadsden Is its well - liked pastor. FOLKS AND NOTES i Dr. James M.

Kent Alston, Beaufort both school principals, were among persons in Orangeburg Tuesday. Columbia's Courier circulation man, Bura Walker, was running around like a headless chicken the other day trying to find papers for folk who kept calling his home.
