SIX THOUSAND PEOPLE GATHERED AT
KINGS MOUNTAIN CELEBRATION
Morrison And Bulwinkle Speak.
Croat Parade With Airplane,
Football And Athletic Con
Six thousand and more persons
gathered in historic Kings Mountain
Tuesday and paid eloquent tribute to
the memory of a brave little band of
American patriots, who on this spot
144 years ago struck one of the first
decisive blows for the cause of
American independence by signally
defeating an army of British troops.
Rivaling in size, perhaps, the crowd
that' gathers there on Saturday, Octo
ber 7, last year to hear Senator Roy
al S. Copeland deliver the address, the
number of persons attending Tues
day attested the growing interest in
the annual event there.
An elaborate prograirff'carried' but
without a hitch, bespoke the careful
attention given by Kings Mountain
citizens, who have for years sponsor
ed the event.
Governor Cameron Morrison and
Major A. L. Bulwinkle, of Gastonia,
representative in the lower house ofi
Congress from the Ninth district, were
principal speakers of the occasion.
Governor Morrison declared in op
ening his address that "I, too, am
waging a battle for independence,-’ j
doubtless referring to the w#ter trans
portation and port terminals develop
ment measure that ha is championing
Major Bulwinkle pleased his audi
ence with a discussion of the pros
pects for having the battlefield made
into a national park, declaring “Some
day I hope to have the pleasure of as-'
sisting in dedicating Kings Mountain
Nothing is nearer the hearts of
Kings Mountain people than having
the shrine of American liberty made
into a national park and Mai. Bulwin
kle’s remarks on the subject were
greeted with vociferous applause.
The speaking was not the only I
feature of the celebration.
The program started promptly at
the designated hour, moving from one
of the graded school buildings j
through the principal streets to the j
Central high school building, where,
the exercises were held.
The parade was distinguished by
about 20 attractive floats, various or
ganizations being represented, includ
ing the Ku Klux klan, the Woman’s'
club, the Masonic order. Junior order
and a number of business houses.
Adding interest to the parade was
the presence of Troop E.. 100th cav
alry, North Carolina national guard,
from Lincolnton. The soldiers added
a touch of military color to the event.
During the parade Aviator Crowell!
gave an exhibition of airplane flying
over the city.
McLeod Not There.
Governor McLeod, of South Caro
lina, was unable to accept an invi
tation to be present for the e%rent.
The program opened at the Cen
tral high school building with B. E.
Carpenter, general chairman of the
committee in charge of arrangements,
presiding. Mr. Carpenter turned the
chair over to 0. B. Carpenter who pre
sided during the exercises. L’pon in
vitation by Mr. Carpenter, Dr. I. F.
McElroy, pastor of the First Preshy-.
terian church, of Kings Mountain,
pronounced the invocation.
Mr. Carpenter spoke a few words |
of welcome after which Mayor P. D.
Herndon officially welcomed the visi
tors to Kings Mountain.

Introduced by O. B. Carpenter,
Governor Morrison opened his address
hy declaring that ‘‘I too, am engaged
in a battle for independence.”
The Governor spoke for several
minutes, commenting in general terms
upon the heroes of the battle of Kings
“This battle,” he said, ‘was one of
the most important during the long
struggle and had a great effect upon
the outcome of the Revolution.” He
nlso discussed military phases of the
Tells of Progress.
The governor deviated into a dis
cussion of the situation in this country
and in North Carolina in particular
Tuesday. “Thi» country is enjoying
more peace and greater prosperity
than any other nation under the sun,”
He made a strong appeal to his
hearers to stand firmly by present
day American institutions. “We want
no Rusian theories, nor crazy dreams
of the Orient,” he declared.
Mr. Morrison discussed briefly the
progress North Carolina has made
in the development of schools and
“North Carolina people pay less to
the state government than any other
s ate in the South and less than any
other agricultural state in the Union,”
he pointed out.
The governor closed his address
with an appeal for love of country and
warned Iris hearers not to follow aft
er false gods, who he said, are trying
to wreck America and her institutions.

Exhibit Booths At
County Fair Are
Ready For Entries
\ ariotis Booths Uave Been Arranged
With Ladies Work, Church and

(By ?*Irs. Wallace.)
The booths for the ladies work at j
the Cleveland County fair are nearing
The entire building has been plan
ned with the continuity that makes it
one harmonious whole.
In what is termed the Agricultural
building, farm products, single, col
lective and by communities together
with the county agent, and co-oper
ative booths occupy one side and a
portion of the middle. On the other
side and partly through the center
come the ladies work, the demonstra
tion agents booth, ladies club, church
and school and school exhibits.
In this building are housed all the
exhibits that represent the home life
of Cleveland county people, except
health which spilled over to the ex
hibits which represent the business
side of life in the Manufacture’s
hall. Home would seem really more
appropriate christening for this build
ing than agricultural.
The household arts, or fancy work
booth has been planned to take care
of the greatest number of pieces in
the most attractive manner possible.
The arts and crafts booth, being a
twin sister to this has been placed by
it, and is large enough to accommo
date an exhibit of large proportion as
well a the antinues to be displayed.
As the “eats” are always the most|
appealing things, these booths are the!
first things to greet the eye upon en
trance. When the fruit finds its place
in the attractive home prepared for it,
it will shine forth a challenge to ev- j
er.v other booth.
knowing the Cleveland county cooks
to say what is expected in pantry and
dairy supplies would be superfluous.
The flowers at the center of the build
ing will form a beautiful connecting
line between farm and home booths.

tions, Gloria Swanson in “Manhan

by overhandling. William Farnum in
“Wolves of the Night” is the big
thrill at the Princess Saturday. Grim,
ghastly and gruesome, but romantic—
a “murdered” man comes back and
traps the wolves that stole his wife
and fortune. Another feature Satur

ment will show Richard Talmadge in
“American Manners,” a blood-boiling

dashing adventure. Talmadge is the

his best in “American Manners.”

Baby Show Comes On
Of course every Clevtdand county’s
mother’s baby is by far the “most
beautiful” and easily "superior to per
fect”, but what calls for such things
as a baby show is the fact that some
are more so than others. The baby
show at Cleveland county’s first big
fair will be held on Wednesday, Oc
tober 15, according to an announce
ment given out by Miss Irma Bowman
who is in charge of the show. Miss
Bowman requests that all babies to
be registered in the show he brought
in at 11 o’clock Wednesday morning.
The show will be in progress four
hours, from 11 until 3 in the after
Those sponsoring the baby show
say that It will be the best exhibit the
county of Cleveland will have at the
fair, and no doubt they are right.
Three prizes, ranging from $1 to S3,
will be given for babies under one
year, and one prize of $3 for the best
baby over two years.
Hudson’s Eleven To
Play Kings Mountain
Football followers in Cleveland
county, as well as a number all over
the state, will watch with interest a
gridiron contest today, Friday, at
Lawndale when Coach Johnny Hud
son’s Piedmont high eleven meets
Kings Mountain. One reason is that
it will be the first football game ever
played by the students of the Lawn
dale institution and the first ever wit
nessed in Lawndale. Another is that it
will be the former State college star’s
debut as an athletic director.
A large number of Shelby people
are expected to go up for the game as
the local eleven is idle for the re
mainder of the week. Although none
of the Piedmont boys have ever played
football before Coach Hudson h^s in
the past few weeks moulded a likely
looking high school eleven that should
give Kings Mountain a hard battle.

’ ifrean in this district fired both bar
rels at the iK-rnocratte party when
they .'poke in the court house VVednes
| day afternoon to an audience that fill
ed the auditorium about two-thirds
full, although many of the hearers
were Democt rt k who went to bear
l the discussion there was a sprinkling

! ished music, playing “Taint Gona Rain
More" ns a summons that the hour
- -dndnre li hdrix’Vai- introduced by
i the Republican county chairman Mr.!
II. Clay Cox in eloquent terms for a
layman and the audience cheered as
t he judge arose. He referred to his I
I service in t he general assembly of i
l!h!l arid the fact that he was one of I
four men to draft the state highway'
| bill of which he was proud and an-;
| nounced that his amendment making I
! the appropriation 100 million dollars
lacked only two votes passing the
| committee. Most of his speech was
(directed to the prosperity of the state
and the claim that the Republican pro
tective tariff system is responsible,
: tor high wages. The Judge announc
ed that he has a “sneaking notion’’ j
that he will be elected and if so, he
xvil.| uphold President Coolidge to the
last ditch in his principles. He intro
duced Colonel Meekins ns the “great
est orator in the Southland,” and re
lated the debate between him and
Thomas Dixon in Raleigh in which he
claims Meekins got the better of the
argument over the “movie censorship”
Col. Meekins is a striking-looking
! gentleman who praised Yates Webb j
with whom he was in college at Wake j
j Forest, Preacher Woodson whom he
i knew in Eastern Carolina and Max
Gardner ‘who might be governor four
| years hence if he can put Aus Watts
I to sleep." Colonel Meekins announced
j that he came not for abuse but to
, place a bill of indictment against
wh it he terms the “political machine”
jin North Carolina. He said the 230,000
men and tvomen who voted the Repub
i lican ticket in North Carolina at the
1 last election are becomig to be recog
! nized as people of character, and hon- I
esty of purpose. He undertook to j
j prove his case against the “political!
machine” by reading editorials from j
I Democratic papers charging the cor-1
! poration commission with incompe- j
tence. Extenuating these remarks he
! said the corporation commission ap
points -bank examiners, not because
; they are competent, but because they
arc Democrats and that as a result of j
| careless supervision over the state
hanks, 15 “busted” last year, causing i
the depositors to he defrauded out of
millions of dollars.
Next Colonel Meekins took a shot at
I Stacey \\ ade, insurance commission
jer, charging him with permitting
stock to lie sold in worthless corpora
tions which have “busted,” causing the
I loss of millions to innocent investors.
“The farmers of Vance county alone
j lost SI00,000 in fertilizer factories for
which the stock salesmen carried li
cense and approval from Stacey
\\ ade to sell stock.” He declared that
Stacey Wade is a machine Democrat,
manufactured by the machine and I
kept in by the machine which ratifies
everything he does. He charged Sena
tor Mendenhall of Guilford with
“sneaking” through a bill at the last
legislature, allowing th," insurance
| commissioner to collect as a fee one
fifth of one per cent on all stock sold
in North Carolina and that in nine
( months this amounted to §2,400 which
| he received in addition to his salary
! of $4,500 and that shortly thereafter
■ Wade paid Mendenhall $1,100 insur- j
! ance premiums on state property
which he had insured with Menden
Colonel Meekins is a rapid-fire
speaker and received close attention
for a full hoUr.
