Two Companies of Troops to Put on
Bij; Sham Battle at Fair Grounds.
Colorful Program Scheduled.
Shelby is to have a big Armistice !
day celebration this year—one that i
will make up for those not held in pre- '
vious years, according to officials of j
the Warren Hoyle post of the Ameri
can legion. The major event of the1
program is a big sham battle in the
late afternoon at the County Fail
Grounds. Two companies will engage
in the battle. There will be bursting
shells, bombs, grenades, machine gun
and rifle fire, smoke screens and ar
tillery barrage and everything like
a real battle, except that blanks will
he used. ’**“
Legion officials are planning to
make Tuesday, November 11, an out
standing anniversary of the end of the
World War. In the sham battle will
be the Cleveland Guards in command
of Captain Peyton McSwain and the
howitzer company of Gastonia, com
manded by Captain Stephen Dolly. Of
ficers of the company are putting
forth every effort to make it as real
istic of actual war conditions as pos
sible. All the weapons of modern war
fare will be used. Captain J. H. Bar
bin, of the United tSates regulars and
instructor of the North Carolina Na
tional Guard, has already promised to
come to Shelby and take charge of
the colorful demonstration that is ex- j
pected to be Witnessed by hundreds of i
people from Cleveland and surround
The attack to be staged will be just
as the boys fought overseas. At the
scheduled hour a heavy artillery bar
rage will be laid down and under
cover of a smoke screen the boys will
come out of the trench and charge the
enemy position in face of a wave of
machine gun bullets, rifle fire, gre
nades and gas—real with the excep
tion of the lead and steel.
Such sham battles have been stag
ed in other sections of the state, but
this will be the first opportunity Clev
eland people will have of witnessing a
der»*nstr*Jd9* this type. No hour
has been announced yet* Jfee
sTiam battle wut probably be late in'
the afternoon so as to continue after
dark to give the specators a glimpse
of a night attack.
"Flashes of Action.”
Another feature of Armistice day j
will be the big war film, "Flashes1
of Action,” to be shown at the Prin- j
cess theatre under the auspices of the
Legion. The film, officially made dur
ing the war, will show actual fighting,
parades, decorations, officers, trans
port ships and many unusual scenes.
It is the war’s greatest picture.
NEW BETHEL BUSES
MO EBB CHURCH
This Amount Pledged In A Few Min
utes Sunday. Mr. Carme Elam's
Loyalty And Generosity.
New Bethel Baptist church of near
Lawndale is planning to build a hand
some new brick veneered church
building that will have a large church
auditorium with eight or ten' Sunday
school class rooms on the main floor
and a basement the size of the en
tire building which will provide for
other Sunday School class rooms and
Heating plant. Although Sunday was
a rainy day and the congregation was
■“mall, Rev. John W. Suttle, pastor of
New Bethel for 13 years, launched a
campaign for subscriptions and re
ceived pledges to the amount of $8,
000. This will not be sufficient to build
and equip the church but the success
"as most gratifying.
Mr. Carme Elam was the most lib
eral contributors. Mr. Elam made the
statement before the campaign start
ed that he would give one-fourth the
amount pledged by the entire congre
gation so his pledge on Sunday was
$-.000, Mr. Elam is one of the most
enthusiastic church members in North
Carolina and one of the most gener
ous givers, being especially free to
all charity, education and religious
causes. Mr. Elam is a very modest
man and does not parade his liberal
ity, but it might be an inspiration to
others to say, without his consent,
'hat the amount of money in his en
velope e^ch Sunday'is as much as the
pastor’s salary for serving that
church. Only one-third of the church’s
contributions are used at home, while
w°’thirds goes to benevolences. The
second largest contirbutor to the new
</lurt’b campaign fund on Sunday was
ffp’ Cline who gave $1,250. Mr.
'me is also one of the most gener
ous members the church has. New
ethel has a membership of approxi
mately 180. The present church build

the Democratic party is to readjust

where it belongs—on an equality with

put into effect if he is chosen Presi

serted that all the Republican party
has to offer the farmer is the promise
to call a commission and investigate
"The outstanding economic prob

At Around $100,000
R, E. Campbell, Shelby merchant
and business man on Wednesday of
this week purchased the Courtview
hotel property from Mrs. W. C. Cor
bett of Houston, Texas at a consider
ation said to be nearly $100,000. This
is among the most valuable business
properties in Shelby, located on the
corner of Marion and LaFayette Sts.,
where the Courtview hotel, Drive-in

P. Riviere's job printing office, J. J.

lawyer have quarters rented. Mr.
Campbell stated yesterday that he has
not made up his mind as yet what
disposition he will make of the prop
erty, but he expects to start some
kind of improvements next year. Just
what these improvements will be, he
does not know.
Sometime in the early part of this
year this property was sold for divis
ion, Mrs. Corbett owning one-half in
terest and Jack Palmer, Mai Spangler
and Wm. Lineberger owning the oth
er half. At the first sale the property
was purchased by these three young
enterprising gentlemen but the bid

Starts Big Series
For State Honors
Highs Meet Lincolntpo Eleven Here
On Friday Afternoon. Eiimina- j
tion Games for State Series.
The Shelby high eleven will play
the Lincolnton grid outfit here this j
(Friday) afternoon in the first elim
ination game for the state champion
ship, according to a schedule arrang- (
ed Wednesday night at a group meet
ing held in Charlotte. Shelby was to
meet Lincolnton anyway and the only j
change is the fact that the outcome !
will count in the state contest and
both elevens will fight the harder.
Shelby’s opponents in the first three
rounds of the state elimination are
not the toughest in the western sec
tion as is usually the case and local
supporters are already visioning Shel- i
by playing Charlotte for Western i
honors. After Lincolnton Shelby plays I

ports from that place indicate that >
they also expect to win. Although the I
victory over Monroe was the first in !

developing more reserve material for ■

ly proving worthwhile in the eyes of
school patrons is bis system of discip-j

How Lincolnton feels about the
game Friday afternoon may be seen
from the following story appearing in
the Lincolnton papers:
“Coach Thomason is giving the,
“Yellow Jackets” a hard grind this
wedk so they will be prepared to meet
the Shelbv lads Friday, October 31, at ■
Shelby. This is the biggest game of I
the season for the locals and they are
trying hard to get in condition for the
game. “Red” Haynes will occupy his
old position in the back field and
“Cow” Lore will have' his place at
tackle. They were both out. of the
games with Mt. Holly and Moores
ville. “Shad” Goodson, our star quar
terback, who has been out on account
of injuries received in the Mt. Holly

Here Is The First Cadillac In Cleve
land Which Was Owned By J. C.
Smith he Bought it in 1903.
My, haven’t time,* changed? Per
haps the greatest change has been in
the appearance and improvements in
automobiles. Of course people have
changed and this street scene also
reflects somewhat the growth of
Shelby. Notice the Cadillac in the
picture above. At the time this pic
ture was made by .J. C, McArthur in
front of the old Shelby Hotel build
ing ill 1905, grass was (growing in the
streets of the main thoroughfares.
The building in the background wa
the Shelby Hotel, operated by Mr.
and Mrs. L. M. Hull. On this site now
stands the two story Royster build
ing with store rooms in which the
proprietors do not think they are
“out of town.”
But coming back to the Cadillac,
Mr. Joe C. Smith bought it over in
Catawba county in 1903 and it was the
first machine of its kind in Catawba.
He came to Cleveland in 1905 to be
come secretary-treasurer of the
Shelby Cotton Mill which position he
still holds and that Cadillac car
which he brought with him was the
first of its kind in Cleveland. Yes, it
was driven by a gasoline motor, but
notice the low radiator, the lack of
a wind shield and top and the ab
sence of side doors. The seats were
like those used in the buggies of
that time because an automobile was
nothing more than a buggy with pneu
matic tires and drawn by a motor in
stead of a horse or mule.
A driver felt that it was too dan
gerous to drive faster than 12 to 15
miles an hour and the car wouldn’t
go much faster than that. When it
struck a hill, the occupants often had
to get out and push—even a Cadillac.
Long trips always caused the driver
to have a dread that lie wouldn’t get
back in due time and there was also
an element of danger in riding that
few people think about nowadays
even at the speed of 30 miles an hour.
In the car with Mr. Smith in the
above picture are his wife, Mrs. J.
C. Smith, also Mrs. Hull and her
three children, Marion, Mildred and
Frank. Today these children are mar
ried and live in other cities. The two
girls are Mrs. Draper Wood of High
Point and Mr?. jj Jack Stevens of
Greensboro while’the son, Frank, fives
in West Virginia. Beside the,, car
stands "Mammy,” the faithful color
ed servant of the of the Hull family
who came with them to Shelby from
The Star has a series of four or five

The Kelly Clothing Co„ will open

nig will be handled. An opening is

Route Traffic Now
By Way Of Shelby
Southbound traffic on the main
highways is now being routed through
Shelby. Usually tourists and other
direct southern motor travel is by
way of Kings Mountain, Grover and
Blacksburg to Spartanburg, but road
conditions on that route has made it
necessary this week to send the hun
dreds of tourists bound for Florida
through Shelby and Boiling Springs
and on to Spartanburg. The South
Carolina part of the highway from
Blacksburg to Gaffney is being hard
surfaced and owing to the rains of the
last week-end the detours are well
night impassable. Monday and all
through the week Shelby people began
wondering where all the big and lit
tle cars bearing northern license tags
were coming from and it was learned
upon inquiry that motorists are being
directed this way upon reaching Kings
Mountain. The change in routing is
advertising Shelby to a considerable
extent as practically all of the tour
ists stop here for a short time to in
quire about routes and secure other
