Three Cases Of Importance Like
ly To Be Tried Before
The November term of Haywood

with the entire docket devoted to cri
minal casej, with Judge H. Hoyle Sink
presiding and the State represented
by John M. Queen, of this city, solici
tor for this district.
This term of court will have one of
the heaviest dockets that has come
up in many months. Besides a great
number of minor cases to be tried,
in this term of court there will be
three major cases that are expected
to be tried in this term of
court. It could not be learned
here just what cases Solicitor
Queen would call first, as he spent all
this week in court at Franklin.
The three cases which will cause
the greatest interest, will be perhaps,
the Charlie Rose case; John Coble, and
the David Clark case. Just which one
of these three will be called fiit, if
any, could not be ascertained here this
It is tlvought that the case of Charlie
Rose, 17-year-old negro, who is said
to have shot and killed Will Ray, depu
ty shcrjtF, early in September, will bo
certain to be given a trial during this
term. Rose was being, sought by a
posse of .men and officers late in the.
afternoon of September (Uh, charged
with criminal assault, on a .r-year-old
white gill at a local summer hotel.
It was said at the time of the .shoot
ing1, that Rose was running from mem
ber of the posse when he came in
contact with Ray, The deputy was
shot between the eyes and lived only
a few hours after being shot.
Rose was captured a few hours after
; the shooting by Tom Lee, Jr., and
Horace Duckett, and brought to jail
for safe keeping Tuesday night. On
Wednesday afternoon Rose was car
ried to the Asheville jail in the rumble
seat of the car of Kenneth Lowe, son
of Sheriff J. A. Lowe.
David Clark, of Lake Junaluska, is
charged with killing Bradley Brooms,
28, of Jackson county on the night of
July 26. Brooms was said to be walk
ing along the highway near Clyde
when he was hit by a car dTiven by
Clark. Brooms died Wednesday night
following the accident.
John Coble, local man, is charged
with killing his bride of 7 weeks, Moll
Nichols, also of this city. This took
place about the middle of October. At
the hearing witnesses testified that
Coble had been quarreling shortly
before the fatal shooting. The shoot
ing took place in a house across the
street from where the Cobles were
living. The scene of the tragedy
was Smathers Street.

Waynesville Downs Canton
14-6 On Mud Field Friday
Before 800 Drenched Fans
Playing in a steady rain xvith the
fiield ankle-deep in mud, the Moun
taineers slid and splashed their way
to a 14-6 victory over the Canton Black
Bears here Friday afternoon before
800 drenched spectators who saw the
once flashy players pull back-slides,
forward stomach slides, and almost
every other kind of playing that a
slippery field xvould make.
The featured run of the game was
made by Allen, Canton full back, who
returned a kickoff 65 yards in the
final quarter. The field was so slip
pery that the Waynesville man tould
not get a foot-hold to get out after
Allen. .",.' .".
Waynesville's first tally was made
soon after the opening kick-off xvith
Bridges carrying the ball. Reeves
played a prominent part in getting
the ball to scoring distance.
One of the outstanding feats of the
game was the long punts gotten off
by Eckenrod, Canton halfback. Time
and time again this punter was called
Haywood To Receive
Aid For Needy Soon
Plans Are Made At Meeting To
Put Number Of Men
At a special meeting here Tuesday
afternoon of the county Welfare
board, the county school board, and
W. A. Hyatt, recently elected chair
man of the county commissioners,
Miss Pearl Weaver, district supervi.
sor of the government relief of the
Western District, outlined projects
and a program whereby Haywood
county would continu? to receive aid
from the Federal government lor
relief of local needy.
A discussion was entered into
whert by public works could be done
with the Federal aid money and em
ploy only those in the county that
needed work and financial help at
this time. It is nott he purpose of
the relief to give cash to those ask
ing for help, but give them work on
ptojevt that needs attention at
Mt, time. However, it was pointed
nut that families needing help and mil
aide to Work will be helped, Lilt not
an Ml ail such cases are given . a
''-Mr. Hyatt explained I'm- the m w
board o.f commissioners thought it
-;'iu i;est to have a committee in each
.-..liumu.ity to .report, all cases whom
i .dp was needed to the central wel
i'iVi e body at Waynesville and also
.n .k suggestions of projects to u
worked on in each community. This,
p.an met with tne 'hearty approval
if Mis; Weaver and members of the
two boards present.
One project that was Mentioned
was the building of a sidewalk at the
West ' Canton school, as the present
situation there was considered most
dangerous as the i00 school children
S'-a-lK on the highway and are careless
c.bout looking out for cars.
Among the projects mentioned will
include work on public roads, school
grounds, and buildings, and public
cemeteries. Reports of these pro
jects will be made out within the
next few days and sent to Raleigh.
Several hundred men can be employ,
ed on the projects outlined at the
meeting. The wage scale will be in
keeping with the scale of labor, it
was pointed out
Those attending ihe meeting were
most enthusiastic over the prospects
of obtaining more of the Federal
renet tuna, wnicn win aid greatly in,
giving relief to the. needy of this
unty this winter.
The question of obtaining Red
Cross cloth was brought before Miss
Weaver .who1 'said that, it would be
necessary to appoint a local commit
tee of women to. look after the dis-"
tribution of this cloth before an order
v. oukl be placed for this cloth.
A committee o; four women was
named and met with Mis', Weaver
