Hight School Boys Begin Regular
Practice I'nder Direction of
Morris, the New, Coach.
Tile Shelby high football outfit, reg
ulars, aspirants and others, are be
ing whipped into shape for the coming
season by daily drill and practice on
the city ball park under the direction
of “Casey” Morris, new coach, who ar
rived this week. Some 25 or 30 boys
have answered the call issued by Mor
ris and a number more are expected
out next week when school opens.
Prospects as viewed from the sidelines
during preliminary practice only are
that more and better material than
ever before is on hand with which to
begin a season. Barring mishaps, Shel
by has several good reasons on which
to base hope for a championship elev
Among the boys out are several now
men who will enter school thip year
and should prove good additions to the
eleven. Among them are Hackney,
Furches and Ellerbee, players of;
some experience, and in their last year
of high school will be candidates for i
the eleven in order to gain an insight
of the Fetzer system as taught by
Morris. The local line should he one.
of the most outstanding in the state.
Harry Grigg will likely be back in at
renter, Captain Auten and Fred
Beam will be at their regular tackle,
positions, while there are a number
of sturdy built youngsters from which :
to select the two guards. Newman, a
regular, will be back on one wing, pro
vided his injured foot does not pre
vent. There is some talk that Cline
Lee, brilliant guard last year and star
shortstop o nthe baseball team, will be
shifted to one end because of hi,
speed, length, sureness in receiving
passes and his deadly tackles. How
ever, few berths appear to “be on ice"
as yet as there are several hard-work
ing candidates for every position. In j
the backfield is a versatile lot. Max)
Connor, all state player, will perhaps
run the eleven at quarter, although
both Furches and Hackney half backs
have experience in handling a team.!
Hllerbee, one of the candidates for the .
berth of full back, is a hefty speci
men and fast on his feet. All of the I
hacks are shifty and good broken
field runners, while both Connor and i
Hackney are acurate passer.: and Fur
ches and Ellerbee are experienced in
pulling the pigskin out ofthe air while
running at full speed. Among the oth
er backfield men are several good
substitutes and regulars from preced
ing years, such as Hopper and Ded

Circus Here Monday
Lone famous for strange and cu
rious forms of animal life to be found
in no other zoological garden or me
nagerie “Golden Bros.’ big four ring
trained wild animal Circus” this year
contains an exhibit which is pow oc
cupyine the attention of scientists and
naturalists everywhere. It is the only j
white camel ever seen in captivity and j
the only one ever brought to this coun
try. Prof. Knude. who has given a
great deal of study to the subject
claims he finds this remarkable ani-j
mal a descendant of the few white |
camels which survived the storms'
which about the year 1700 overwhelm
ed the villages of the Gobi pleteau and ;
killed all the people; at any rate it is
a prize of which any circus might j
justly boast and yet it is but one of
the many valuable displays made by J

New Hilliard Tea
One of the most interesting: events j
°f the week was the opening: of the j
Hilliard tea room by Mrs. R. E. Ware 1
at 508 West Warren street on Tues-'
day afternoon from 3:30 to 6. The op
ening; of this tea room is quite an in- ■
novation for Shelby and Mrs. Ware’s,
formal opening; on Tuesday has al-i
ready proved its popularity by the;
number of women calling; during the i
hours and the reservations already
made for this week.
The tea room proper and dining
room, rest and gift rooms were de
corated with fall flowers and receiv
ing with Mrs. Ware were here sister,
Mrs. J. R. Dukes, Mrs. Mae Conner,
Miss Mae Connor and Mrs. Brady.
The next time Shelby people have j
« charitable feeling they should look
around the home and find the stray j
and unused school books to be turn-!

the f lantera and Merchants warehouse

vised the members of the association
when possible to deliver to the Ideal
Expect Good Year.
In repards to the coming year the
Cotton Growers Bulletin says:
"With a trained force of workers
and with the most modern labor sav
ing and economical office machinery,
the association is prepared to make
a considerable saving in operating ex
pense the coming season. Lower in
surance rates, lower storage rates,
some concessions in freight rates and
a substantial reduction in interest
rates are among the features. It is
estimated that the saving to the mem
bers of the association in operation
expense will be close to $200,000.
“The first year of operation the
association handled over 135,000 bales
of cotton and averaged for its mem
bers slightly more than 25 cents a
pound. Approximately 10,000 bales of
the cotton received was old cotton de
livered by members who have joined
"Reports for the second year show
that approximately 131,000 bales were
handled and that the total operating
expense by reason of gelling direct to
consumer was very substantially re
duced. The members received 29 cents
a pound net for middling cotton—a
very good price for the season and in
fact the second highest average price
in a period of over half a century. In
the beginning of the season, the man
agement mapped out a program and
followed it. A liberal advance pay
ment was made on delivery another
payment was made in December, an
other in the early spring and the final
settlement in July. By this program,
the membership received money dur
ing the season, as they were in need
of it—The members received 70 per
cent of the value of the cotton before !
“Now with the opening of the third
season, and in view of the fact that
several thousand new members have
joined during the summer months, the
management looks forward to a suc
cessful season—the association will
make an advance payment to all mem
bers of $70 on every bale weighing
500 pounds and over with slightly re
duced advance^ on lighter bales. The
association has arranged with the
North Carolina agricultural credit
corporation for marketing loans on all
cotton of the members, these loans to
be made at the time of delivery and at
a vefy low interest rate. These mark
eting loans on bales weighing 500
pounds and over are set at $20 a bale
—by this arrangement member* can
secure $90 on every 500 pound bale
if desired on delivery."

Eight Children is Victim of
Mrs. Marvin Lutz die 1 early Mon
day morning at her home near Bel
wood in u most peculiar manner and
her untimely passing is a source of
great sorrow to her many frier.ds.
Mrs. Lutz had not comp’lined espec
ially of sickness other than she was
exhausted from waiting on her several
sick children. The loss of sleep and the
long but patient hours of work and
worry over her loved ones caused her
suffering. When the family physician
come on Sunday to visit the little
ones, Mrs. Lutz was given a hypoder
mic. This eased her suffering and Sun
day night she fell to sleep. Members
of her family tried to arouse her when
they thought her sleep should have
ended but she continued to sleep until
next morning. When she did awake,
she got up from the bed and hurried
to the fireplace, calling to her husband
and declaring that death was near.
Her husband was at her side when she
passed away. Four of the children are
still sick, three of them seriously'.
Mrs. Lutz was the oldest daughter
of Mr. Bob Elliott and a noble Chris
tian woman, a devoted wife and moth
er, tireless in her interest and efforts
about home. She was a faithful mem
ber of Kadesh church and loved by all
who knew her. Seventeen years ago
she married Marvin Lutz, one of the
most substantial farmers of upper
Cleveland and to this union of 17 years
were blessed with eight bright chil

ber is to put one of these tags on each
bale of cotton when he delivers it. Ev
eryone is warned not to borrow tags
from anyone else because the cotton
will go in the name of someone else.
Much time and expense can be saved
if the members will deliver their cot

Cle\eland Farmers Face Possi
bility of Paying Out Over
.Million For Feedstuff
Kven if Cleveland county produced
10,000 holes of cotton the money from
10,000 bales will have to he spent with
0 her states for feedstuff unless some
thing is dt ne, is the startling w arn
ing given out by the County Hoard
of Agriculture. The corn and hay
crop in the county this year is disap
pointing, very much so. The cotton
crop may be good, but the stock can
n< t be fed on cotton, and the stock
mu t he fed. The al'ernative advised
—ra'her urged—by the board iK that
every farmer in the county sow from
two to five acres of good land in oats.
This is the only solution to saving the
farmers of Cleveland county one and j
one-half million dollars that w ill oth- j
j erwise be spent aad the board prac-i
tiaclly terms farmers who do not sow I
: seme oa's a “slicker.”
In urging evefy farmer in the hor-,
tiers of Cleveland county to sow outs!
and sow them ii» September, in order!
i to save the county this vast sum of]
money. O. Max Gardner, president of j
the agricultural hoard, says:
“It lias been estimated that Cleve- |
land county, in view of our poor corn!
an dhay crop w ill have to buy over one j
and one-half million dollars worth of j
feedstuff from the West for the year j
I 1925. In other words we are going to >
send the money from ten thousand *
hales of cotton to Iowa and Kansas
for hay, corn and oats.
“There is only one way this heavy ]
load can he lifted from the backs of
our farmers. It can and MUST be
done, and the taek is for every farmer
in Cleveland county, by starting at1
once to prepare from tw o to five acres
| of his best land for oats. Do not wait
: until November to sow your oats, but
i p’ant in September or October. Don’t
1 pick out the poorest and most barren
i fields for this crop. Dr. Massey, of the
; Progressive Farmer, said that he has
never seen an oat crop fail when
pianted in September—if on good land

TOO MUCH FOR CITY
Town Unable to Finance Cost Which
Would be Around $100,000—Tax
Hate of $1.35 Approved.
At the regular meeting of the may
or nnd hoard of aldermen Tuesday
night when the city fathers gave con
sideration to the report of the engin
eers onth • contemplated rehabilita
tion of the pump station and water
supply which is insufficient for the
ore < nt needs of Shelby, the cost was*
found prohibitive. Shelby’s bonded in-1
debtedness is already near the limit j
so tis vet no way has been found to fi- j
nance the improvement. The engineers!
subirti ted two propositions in their i
report One is to move the plant to a
higher elevation on the hill above high
wa*er of the river and provide a two
million gallon capacity filtering plant
which would cost $110,097. The other
proposition is to remodel the present
plant and increase the capacity to a
million nnd a half gallons which would
cost $97,055. To provide a septic tank
som" distance below Shelby in a
south-western direction would cost
$15,000. The town does not have suf
ficient funds for ei’her project, and
one member of the board suggested
that until the town limits are extend
ed the water supply lines beyond the
city Unit's might have to be cut off
until some way of financing ig devolv
ed. It is either this or the town must
do on its inadequate supply of water,
intproptrly filtered. Action on the en
gineers report, was therefore postpon
ed for 30 days. In the meantime the
sentiment of the people will be sound
the city fathers approved the tax
rate of $1.35 on the $100 worth of
property, an increase of 25 cents over
last year's rate. This rate is distri
buted as follows: For general purpos
es 38 cents; for ,-chools 33 cents; for
interest on bonds 45 cents; for pay
ment of bonds coining due 19c. The
schools in addition to get.ing the rev.
enue from a 33 cents levy will also
get the poll tax.

campaign. He isays his people are de

Another Flock of
Forged Checks Are

Arthur Walker and Warren tieraid
Thought to Have Left Memory
Token* Following Trial.
Officer, in surrounding counties in
this section are on the lookout for Ar
thur Walker ami Warren Gerald, par
ticularly Walker, as the result of a
lour they made through this county,
Lincoln and Rutherford last week.

I he two are, or were traveling in
i Ford touring ear bearing a Texas
license number, which was 756,739.
They arrived in Shelby last week, pre
sumably from Greensboro, the home
>f Walker, and a short time later were
arrested on the chnrge of being drunk
and disorderly in South Shelby. Fol
lowing fines of $25 each in recorder’s
court they departed town, headed to
the west, leaving a flock of useless
chocks in their wake. Accompanying
(hem, it is thought, was Ed. Walker,
brother of Arthur, who lived in South
ShHby and was also awaiting a hear
ing in recorder’s court charged with
obtaining goods under false pretense.
The plan they followed, it seems, was
to unload the checks on filling station
and garage proprietors for gas and so
much change. Officers are confident
that 10 or 12 checks were written in
this County and Rutherford. All of the
checks coming to light so far arc
signed by “W. B. Jones”, being drawrn
eithe?4 on the First National or Un
ion Trust company. For some reason,
not made public, the officers think
Walker is the fictitious Jones.
Some of Walker's people live in
Rock Hill and officers there have been
notified to look for his arrival. He is
described as being about 35 years old,
heavy set with red face and moderate
ly nice hooking. Gerald is a slender
man of about 50 years and wears
glasses. From reports it appears that
one or more forged checks were drop
ped in Lincoln county while the Ford

says “I do not know very many of the
dear people of Shelby any more as I
did 69 years ago, in 1855, the year I
lived and tramped the streets there. I
remember the old barn of a court
house with the steps on the east and

story where the court room was. I re
