FIRST FARM LOAN IS
MADE IN CLEVELAND
Shelby Board of Trade Enters
Protest Against Excess Profits
Special to The Observer.
Shelby, July 24. The first loan to
be made through the Columbia
branch "f the Federal Farm Loan as
sociation in North Carolina was made
today in Cleveland county when a
farmer received a loan of $1,000.
Shelby also has the distinction of get
ting the first farm loan charter in
the state. The i lia i ter was received
about two weeks ago. Application
was made in the name of the Cleve
land County Farm Loan association
but upon recommendation of ulficials
the name was changed to the Shelby
Farm Loan association In view of the
fact that another is being organized
in this county at Kings Mountain.
About twelve more loans are pending
and will probably be made in this
county this week.
At a special meeting of the direc
tors of the board of trade a strong
protest went to Senator F. M. Sim
mons at Washington. D. C, urging
his opposition to the excess profits
tax in the revenue bill, local business
men considering the tax so burden
some that it will drive many of them
on the rocks of financial distress if
It should become the law. The fol
lowing message was dispatched:
"The Shelby board of trade, rep
resenting every business occupation
and profession of the entire town,
earnestly protests against the excess
profits provision of the reported Pen
ate tax bill and respectfully urges
your opposition to it. We are willing
and expect to meet our just propor
tions of the tax burdens incident to
this great world war. but we feel
that the Senate lull distributes this
burden unjustly and unequally. We
will not be heard In complain if
this tax Is Imposed without preju
dice or discrimination. We are en
titled to this and ask for nothing
more." In addition to this message
the board of trade ordered that O.
M. Gardner, president, go to Wash
ington when this bill is up for con
sideration and register a protest for
the local men.
Company G, first North Carolina
regiment, has had so few men in it
from this county that It has been im
possible to drill regularly since the
boys returned from the border, but
they are coming In from this and
other counties in obedience to the
mobilization order and Wednesday-
will see the eighty men who com
pose the local guards and the thirty
live men who constitute the supply
company, properly assembled here
ready for daily drills.
Col. J. T. Gardner of the first N'orth
Carolina haR sufficiently recovered
from his recent illness that he is able
to be about his duties arain. It was
found thet his condition was so fa
vorable that he did not have to go
to the hospital.
Members of the Charlotte section
of the Piedmont battery will leave
tonight for Mooresville. where they
will mobilize with the battery, under
the command of Captain Held Morri
son. It was at first decided by the
officer? in charge of the battery, to
mobilize in this city, and was sn an
nounced. It was decided Thuesdty
morning, that it would be best to :
mobili7C in Moor.Mlle. which is the '
headquarters for the hattery.
The Charlotte section of the battery'
is in command of First Lieutenant L. ;
P.. Crayton. and is composed of forty-
seven men. many of thorn from the
most prominent families in the city ;
and county. j
Charlotte citizens have expressed re
gret at losing the Piedmont battery.
as it means that instead of bringing
more than one hundred young men
from places surrounding the city i
here, it will take away forty-seven of
the young men of Charlotte and ,
Mecklenburg county. j
The entire battery has now re- I
cruited to 16f men, a large number of j
young men hiving been enlisted since
the drawing for the draft army took i
place last Friday. The maximum j
war strength of the battery is 190 j
men. Officers feel confident that the
necessary men to bring the organiza- j
tion to maximum war strength will
be enlisted within the next day or so. J
The battery will continue to recruit
men of drafted age, until orders are !
received from headquarters directing l
them otherwise. !
Lieut. Crayton received notice 1
Tuesday morning that the government .
had accepted the regiment of field
artillery, to which the Piedmont bat
tery is attached, and will be mustered
into the federal service ta the same
time with the other national guard
organizations of North Carolina.
1 to army headquarters Tuesday, that
'number having applied for entrance
i into that branch of the service.
Sergt. L. W. Braley, officer In
! charge of the station, announced
Tuesday that the local depot will
i continue to recruit men of draft age.
until notice has been sent out .by the
exemption board, calling those dtawn
i first to appear before the, board.
! Despite the fact that recruiting of
! fleers were very much encouraged
; over the prospect of receiving many
I enlistments as a result of the war de
; partment giving those men first
drawn, a chance to enlist voluntarily.
' rather than be drafted, there has been
no increase in the number of recruits

i children of Orange county. Some of
'; the work done by them the making
of field pillows, slings, pads, band
ages, etc., was exhibited by Mrs.
J Manning. This will be sent by her
I to the New York headquarters.
The work reaches many who can
not do the more exacting and scien
tific work in connection with the Red
Cross. Mrs. Manning is doing the
work voluntarily and giving her time j
to it. Not only has she aroused tre- i
mendous interest over the county!
among the farm folk, but she has!
also done considerable work with the I
colored population, addressing th7in I
in churches and schools. The work .
Includes not merely the preparation of!
materials for war but Is concerned1
with food conservation, elimination of I
