Mauney of the Kings Mountain board of education sa) the General Assembly amended the law on citizens voting themselves in and out 01 ‘hoo! districts. Formerly, Chairman Mauney says, the la required a unanimous vote ol citizens in the area petitioning. The law specifies majority vol students enrolled Tues- schools who live Thirty-five day in Kings Mountain in Gaston County, but also within the city limits and, more important for the youngsters, “within ea walking dis- tance of East school which provides in striction from Grades 1 through 6 and therefore to the age of 1 ome parents of thes 35 find it difficult to understand the tuition fee they are required to pay to attend in King Mountain—since they live in King Mountain's metes and bounds.

School taxes Ol SCLHOOI are collected by the county tax depart ment, then returned to the school dis- tricts on a pupil per capita basis, In Cleveland County, the Shelby district can levy a 40-cents per 3100 valuation special ta the Kings Mountain district 20 cent the county district none {1 essentially this special tax from ich the tuition fee derived, Chairman Mauney also reported that the developer: of Blue Ridge Homes, Ine., which expect to build homes in the Buffalo Creek area want the Kings school district, some of which to have all their property in Mountain already is. It would make a much happier sit- uation for all concerned if the East Kings Mountain folk were citizens of the Kings Mountain school district as well as citizens of the City of Kings Moun- tain, That's Semething The citations delineated the fact that three veterans of long service to Home Savings & Loan association aggre- gated more than 115 years at the work of helping to manage the association.

Patterson has been a director over 40 years, J, H, Thomson, now pres- ident, a director over 30 years, Quite a record. Thomas Woodrow Grayson Woody Grayson took a load of shrapnel in his legs in action in World War IT and carried it the remainder of his life which ended Monday morning. For the past several years he had been in poor health with a combination of additional problems. Perhaps no higher compliment could be paid Mr. Grayson than that which came from his fellow jeweler Frank Rippy, who said, “He never lost his spirit.” Indeed he did not. He continued to work and to indulge in his favorite sports, fishing and golf, when a lesser man would have given up. Mr. Grayson was a successful and respected businessman, a fine husband and father, in short, a gentleman. Sympathies go, to his family and many friends, me, und heard my ery sPal 40:1 Congratulations To: Mrs. Gary Stewart, voted “best all- round nurse” by her mentors at Char- lotte’s Presbyterian hospital, Gene Austin, newly-elected presi- dent, and the other newly-elected offic- ers of Kings Mountain Little Theatre, and William Orr, elected chairman of the Emergency Schools Assistance Ad- visory program. Change at Cannon The late Charles A. Ca have a public relations di his large textile himsell 1 did not nent for organiat. except i That is being changed in order under the new President Don S. Holt. Since April John Harden, onetime public relations vice-president of Bur- lington Industries, who previously had trained at the Salisbury Post and as ecretary to Governor Gregg Cherry, has been organizing a public relations de- partment at Cannon. January 1 Mr. Harden, who defined the science of publie relations in an address to the Lions club here as “put- ting your best foot forward’, will be- come assistant to President Holt, and Edward L. Rankin, Jr., Mr. Harden's apt pupil and associate since Mr. Rankin was a juvenile newsman, will take over the department. Mr, Rankin, after serving Governors [.ather Hodges and William B. Umstead as personal secretary and Governor Dan K. Moore as director of administration, became the managing man for the North Carolina Citizens Association four years ago and has most acceptably discharged his responsibilities for this prestigious organization of industry and business leaders, { is easy to predict Mr. Rankin will be quite successful in putting the Can- n iganization’s best foot forward. Likes Revel? It has been said that opposites at- tract and likes repel. Maybe. Certainly in their public utterances Vice-President Spiro Agnew and Ala- bama Governor George Wallace do not indicate great regard for each other. Yet they are much alike. Both ave thick-skinned, speak firm- ly, handle themselves well on the plat. form whether it is a full-dress speech or in fielding questions from newsmen. It’s an interesting parallel, Showmanship n only one division of the four in major leagues is there a semblance of a race, barring a win-'em-all flash fin- ish such as the Chicago Cubs contrived in 1938 and the Boston Braves managed in 1914, Yet, as Time Magazine pointed out on its cover story feature of Oakland pitcher Vida Blue, there has been plen- ty to excite the fans this year. The play- ers have done their part, but manage- ment has made some contributions, too. Back when Bill Veeck put the show- manship touch to the Cleveland Indians and later the Chicago White Sox, he was regarded as rather a loud-mouthed show-off by his fellows in the big leagues. But the turnstiles clicked. Now showmanship has become standard order of procedure, mini skirts, fireworks celebrations for home club home runs, flagrantly color” iniforms, Once upon a time the: © a few comedians touring to tak 1serious baseball minds off basebal 1d there was an occasional baseball couple mar- ried at home plate.

No. Then they noticed some parking lights off the street in what used to be the Campbell Phifer pasture. “We got in and drove home,” Maude recalls. n-m he 1950 Dodge I wnce drove had fluid drive.
