NOTHING NEW IS
IN ROSE CASE
Officials Reruse To Disclose
The Whereabouts Of
Few new developments have been
made in the case of Charlie Rose, 17-year-old
negro who is in jail some
where charged with the fatal shoot
ing of Deputy Sheriff Will Ray who
was a member of a posse searching
for Rose who was said to bp the one
that attempted to assault a 5-year-old
white girl at a hotel here on Fri
day, September 2.
In an interview with Sheriff Lowe
Tuesday, it was learned that the reas
on Rose was carried to the Bunconibo
county jail last Wednesday was not
because officials here feared mob
violence, but for other reasons which
were not made public. "Then too,"
Sheriff 1-owe stated. "1 needed re-1
and so did my men, and that t'avt;
together with our other reas-ms
prompted us to transfer the prisoner
"The people here cooperated with
me-- in' every respect, and I siiverely
appreciate, that," Sheriff Lowe con
tinued. "Not at any time were we
afraid that we would have trouble
with a mob, because such spirit did
not exist as far as 1 know."
When Sheriff lAwe was questioned
as to the present whereabouts of
Rose he merely stated, "IIe was car
ried to Asheville-temporarily, and is
probably there now, or perhaps he is
in thp Haywood County jail, but at
any rate, he is in a safe plaee until
time for his trial." Whether he was
removed back here or to sonic other
place could not be definitely determin
. u i n .11 Sheriff Lowe's statement.
Very little talk is being heard
around the streets about the ease and
almost every instance complimentary
i uni'. ks are made as to the way offi
cials met with the seriousness of the
situation last Tuesday night. Stmie
however, at first could not understand
why Sheriff Lowe should send Hose
to Asheville, but if the '.public only
knlw the main motive behind this act
the opinion would have been different,.
it was pointed by otliciais
Investigations have .been continued
in the assault case out no new de
velopments were made public by offi
cials. There were rumors oi new de
velopments but none were confirmed
by officials and were entirely ignored,
and branded as "street talk."
Solicitor John M. Queen is in Gra
ham County holding court and was
not expected back in the city before
Thursday or Friday. Mention has
been made of getting a special term
of criminal court here to try Rose,
hut this fact remains to be seen.

There is, however, a regular criminal
term slated for this county November
"Red" Lenoir, one of the four neg
roes arreeted last ' Tuesday night
charged with aiding and abbetting
Rose, was released on a $500.00 bond
last week. The other thre,, are still
confined to jail.
About the most sensational develop
ment at all, and of cours,, this hap
pened a week ago, was the manner
in which Ro.se was carried to Ashe

carried to the basement of the Court

Clean-Up Day Is
Observed At Bethel
High School Friday
Last Friday was clean-up day at
the Bethel High School. The day
was designated by the Bethel P. T. A.,
and the friends and patrons of the
school were invited to send teams and
wagons to haul gravel. The teach
ers and pupils cooperated by bring
ing picks, shovels, soap, buckets and
cloths, and in assisting jn the work.
All the windows in the school house,
all the seats, all the desks and all the
wood work was given a good 'clean
ing by the girls, while the boys went
to work with pick and shovel leveling
off rough places, and filling in depres
sions. Some of he boys brought scy
thes and mowed weejjs and briars.
Some twenty-fiv- or thirty loads of
gravel werP hauled and placed in low
places. The result of the efforts ex
pended is a big improvement in the
looks of both building and campus.
"This project is just one example of
the fine school spirit that exists at
Bethel," said C. A. Hanson, principal
of the school.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1932
William B. Ferguson, Jr.,
Native of County, And
Educator of National
Reputation To Head
UNIVERSITY OF N. C.
WILL ACCEPT CREDITS
Long A Resident Of Way
nesviUe Passes Away
Beginning next Monday, Waynes
viUe and Haywood county will bo tho
home of a junior college. Th new
seat of learning has been named Tus
cola Academy, and is under tho super
vision of William B. Ferguson, Jr.,
an educator of national reputation,
and a native of Haywood county.
In making the formal announcement,
Mr. Ferguson stated that from a fin
ancial standpoint many young men
and women could not utU.ui college
during the next few years, and thut
he simply took advantage of an op.
porlunity and made arrangements
with Dean Wilson, of tho University
of North Carolina, and other ofllcia's
of that institution whereby students
passing work under Mr. Ferguson
would be given credit for first and
second year work just the samo as
if they actually attended the classes
in ' Chapel Hill,
At regular periods Mr. Ferguson
.will make his report to tho University
on the work accomplished by each
student. In this way the University
officials can readily check the work
of each student if that student should
later care to attend at Chapel Hill,
The school will be held in the office
building opposite the LcFaine Hotel
on Main Street. This building was
the home of the first library Way
nesviUe ever had, and Mr. Ferguson
was the first librarian for Waynes
viUe, Mr. Ferguson's father used tho
building for a law office for many
years, and it was there that young
Mr. Ferguson was first interested in
school work and public work. "At. the.
ape of Hi he was a iubstitUt'-: in teh
public schools here.
The courses taught in the Academy
will bp of the same standard as those
i -l. u.. l. ....ii i
books will be used and also the same
methods of teaching.
One of the outstanding leaturea of
the Academy, it was pointed out, was
the fact that the pupils would receive
individual poaching, as there would
bp an instructor for each (i pupils in
stead of the college requirement of
12 for each instructor. Regular-college
hours for each study will be ad
hered to throughout, it was said.
In speaking of the purpose of the
Academy, Mr. Ferguson stated, "It is
my endeavor and firm purpose to start
and maintain TUSCOLA ACADEMY
here on a high plane of usefulness to
the youth of North Carolina, giving
preference always to those of Hay
wood County where I was born and
raised. ThP requirements and rules
governing this school and its students
will measure up to the best standard
of all successful schools, in character,
manners and morals.
"Tuscola Academy has no vain am
bition to become larger than will .serve
its nurnose: our ambition is for
,ii i in-u n i i i T- ik..,.
; QUALITY first and always. In these
hard times, it seems to meet the very
serious problem of economics facing
us all,-everywhere, by enabling can
didates to get a College education
light at home, at greater savings.
"I hope it will measure Up to the
need of the hour, in every way, and
that the Academy will have a worthy
character. The -student's themselves,
and they alone, will know the real
character of the school, for they will
make it what it will be. Our Acad-
my motto will be merely that of the
Id North State: 'Esse Quam Videri.' "
The official weather reports, as giv
en out. by S. H. Stevenson, local
United States Weather observer lor
WaynesviUe, shows a decided Change
