SHELBY CLOTH MILL
IS NAME SELECTED
Will bo Located in Corporate Limits
and Build About Forty Homes
The Shelby Cloth mill is the name
selected for the new textile plant
which was launched ten days ago in
Shelby by E. T. Switzer, formerly of
Gastonia, Max Gardner, 0. M. Mull,
George and C, G. Blanton of Shelby
and the location will be on the Sea
board between the Shelby Foundry
and Machine shop and the Eastside
Cotton mill on a 15 acre tract belong
ing to Mull and Gardner. When the
new organization was perfected, the
promoters had two sites under consid
eration. the or.e near Eastside and the
other the Hendrick farm west of
Shelby, owned by Gardner, Mull,
Charlie Haynes and Maurice Hendrick,
but it has been definitely decided to
locate within the present corporate
limit; where water, sewer, lights, po
lite and fire protection and school ad
vantages are available. It is interest
ing to know that this new industrial
plant is willing to locate within the
corporate limits, assume the burdens
and enjoy the benefits of the munici
pality, since a number of the anti-ex
tensionists declared that if the cor
porate limits were extended, Shelby
would drive industrial plants /.way.
The new mill will make fancy dress
goods, using cotton and silk yarns.
Mr. Switzer who will be the secre
tary-treasurer is a designer as well
as a manufacturer and has been con
nected with some of the largest mills
in the East. He is now having the
plans and specifications drawn for the
buildings and will be ready to receive
bids in a short while. Mr. Gardner
will be president of the new organ
ization while Mr. Mull will be assist
Each one of the 40 tenement houses
will be modern in every respect, hav
ing water, sewer and electric lights.
Fourth Building And
Loan Is Organized
The fourth building and loan asso
ciation was organized in Shelby last
week. South Shelby is to have an as
sociation and much interest has been
manifested in its organization. Messrs
Marvin Blanton and C. H. Reinhart
have been especially interested and
last week they secured 545 shares as
a starter. The charter is being prepar
ed by Attorney Horace Kennedy and
all of the supplies have been ordered,
the name of the new organization to
be the South Shelby Building and
Loan association. It will have an au
thorized capital of 50,000 shares and
in all probability Mr. Marvin Blanton
will be elected secretary and treasur
er. There was scheduled last night in
South Shelby a meeting of the share
holders to elect officers and directors
and secure a location for headquart
ers, after which the association will
he ready for business to. help build
South Shelby and community.

interest of the Cleveland county
schools. While there Mr. Newton con
ferred with State Superintendent

Ashcraft Tells Of
“Stopping The Paper’’
Pity the poor nen-pusher. Fellow
cam'1 into my office on a recent day
and said he was going to stop the
paper. 1 had said somethin’ or rutbnr
that didn’t exactly agree with his
clear and unclouded vision of matters
mundane, or mayhap it was of things
tgirestial—that and nothing more—
Well, sirs. I liked to have jumped
out of my chair and clear over the
desk. Going to stop the paper
wouldn’t let the big press run no
more—-Jumpin' Ju-peter—how’n Sam
hill was I goin’ to make a livin’ if
the fellow reallv could do what he
sa:d? Wouldn’t let me nrint no mn--'
ketch-ell kolumns; couldn’t tell all
about his girl gettin’ married, or his
boy acceptin’ of a good job, write
obituaries when any of his folks
died, couldn’t even tell of his friends
week-endin’ with him, r.or when he
and his good wife Sundayed and paid
’em back a visit, et cetery, and so
forth and so on.
But at last in talking to the guy
I found out he was only stoppin’ his
own paper—his subscription- -and
not a-goin’ to prevent me from send
in’ it to you—and you—and you.
Then I felt better. And when at
who had come in during the day and
eventide I counted those good friends
said, “Please send me your paper,”
I was content, went home in my little

of incorrigibility, told the officers that
in his fifteen years of living he had
never been to church and to school
only two or three days.
The youngster ran away from a step
father. We don’t blame him. As far
as we can see the proper solution of
such problems depends upon the ar
rest of the parents concerned, not the
boy. Any father willing for his boy to
grow up in ignorance of education and
religion, is unfit to have a son. If he is
so depraved that he doesn’t care the
state ought to put him in the peniten

Lloyd in “Girl Shy” the Webbs, J. E.

despite the rush of seating an open

it. The telegram, which was signed by

Inis marked such wonderful progress
'n recent years, but formally it will
bo twice, or almost twice, as large as
it now is. Officially, the Shelby of
today has only a little more than 5,
000 inhabitants. Friday the official
population should be near 10,000.
Tlie bill providing for the extension
of the city limits of the -own passed"
its second rending Saturday and the
third Monday before the house and
passed on to the senate for further
favorable progress, and in ail likeli
hood by the end of the week official
North Carolina will recognize Shel
by as a town with a radius of one
and a one half miles. Those who
are familiar with lawmaking and
such say that the extension will ma
terialize, or should by Friday arid
although there will be little visible
outward change the Greater Shelby
will have been created. With the
bill passed extending the limits the
next step will be the employment of
an engineer to survey and make out
the new boundaries of the town.
The committee that went to Ral
eigh, O. Max Gardner, Clyde R Hoey
and O. M. Mull, upon their return
stated that the complete passage was
favorable-pin fact, certain. The trio
visited the house committee where
the bill received unanimous approval,
and consulted others regarding the
matter. Representative B. T. Falls
following the last and apparently
final compromise received a protest
it is said and in turn notified those
opposing the compromise that he
would give them a hearing along
with the proponents of extension, but
nothing further developed in opposi
tion, the returning committee reports.
! The committee in the senate will
1 favor the bill also, according to the
i returned delegation and Senator
I Roach, of this district, will aid in
I its passage, which makes the exten
sion seem a cejtainty.
The exact population of the town
will probbably be determined immed
iately following the survey to be
made and announcement made of the
population of the Greater Shelby. Ex
tension takes effect on the day the
measure passes the senate and the
survey will follow immediately.
Although there was some little
dissati faction following the com
promise it seems to have practical
ly disappeared with the realization
that the move was best for the town
and community in general and indi
cations are that everyone will work
